Setup

  • Plan speaker routing and speakers per run no exceeding 2 per channel
  • Plug in speakers
  • Plug in power
  • Plug in the input and output connectors
    • Input A + B from the mixing desk
    • Output A + B to the speakers
  • Press ‘Mute A’ and turn on to remove previous users settings, press ‘Mute A’ to reboot.

Operation

  • Hold down the rotary controller to enter the settings
  • Use the rotary controller to scroll through the menu and pushing the controller to select.
  • Set the input of the amplifier channel to the input channel required (can either be A B or summation of both for each amplifier channel)
  • Scroll down to the speaker attribute and enter that sub menu and scroll until you find the desired speaker and select it then ok the menu.

**NOTE**­ – subs use 4 core cable and utilise pins +/-2

Tips and tricks

  • A coloured arrow means selected and if it is empty it means you are on the edit function
  • Use the delay function for larger rooms to create a more coherent sound (can be set in meters, feet or milliseconds)
  • If the job has no graphic EQ, the amplifier has a basic 4 band EQ with variable bandwidth
  • If you have a front a rear cabled system you can adjust the output level of each amplifier channel separately
  • You can keep an eye on all useful information about each channel using the Level sub menu
  • There is a frequency generator for a quick check of systems
  • The Delay and EQ settings can be linked by the using the LINK A/B settings
  • There is a game of pong on there if you get bored.
  • Run the subs out on a separate channel from you desk, this way you have more control over the subs
