Frequently Asked Questions

Q1. Does it have internal amplifier?

Yes; the internal amplifier will give you a max of 288 W [power (max): 4x 45W (4 Ohms), 4x 72W (2 Ohms)].

Q2. Can I add an external amplifier?

Yes, you can. Make sure the amplifier has RCA cables. Our DM6 stereo connects to external amplifiers through RCA cables. Do not power off the internal amplifier. By default, it is powered on and should remain powered on, even after connecting an external amplifier.

Q3. My Bluetooth does not work anymore. I was able to connect via Bluetooth before, but now it is not working.

If you are suddenly unable to connect to Bluetooth, try resetting your stereo. First, turn off or unplug your DM6. Leave the device powered off for at least 15 seconds; during this time open your phone or Bluetooth device and "forget" AQUATIC AV from your Bluetooth menu. After 15 seconds have passed, power on the stereo and add it as a new device to your Bluetooth connections menu before attempting to pair again.

Q4. What do the red and the blue lights mean?

A red light means the device is on stand by. A blue light shows that one of the modes is active. To determine which mode is active, look on the left-hand side of the power button. The current mode will have a small light in front of it to indicate the mode the stereo is currently in. The other way to check the stereo's current mode is check the remote control; "BT radio" means Bluetooth radio.

Q5. Is DM6 waterproofed?

Yes, it is. All Aquatic AV products are waterproofed.
