18. Frequently Asked Questions
18.1 Can the JB-99RG unit be connected to more than one TV monitor?
Answer: Yes, using a video distributor, the video cable coming out from the top of
the JB-99RG can be connected to 2 or more TV monitors simultaneously.
A video distributor can be purchased from CAVS or any electronic stores such as
Radio Shack.
18.2 Can the JB-99RG unit be connected to external speakers or external audio
system?
Answer: Although the mixer-amplifier of the JB-99RG has additional speaker
connectors, it is strongly recommended not to connect any external speakers
directly to the mixer-amplifier as it may cause serious damage to the mixeramplifier and the speakers. A safer and better way is to connect from the Line Out
of the mixer-amplifier using an audio RC cable to an external amplifier, and then
connect the external speakers to the external amplifier.
To connect an audio RC cable to the Line Out of the mixer-amplifier, you will
need to open the front panel of the JB-99RG. Please contact the CAVS technical
support department before proceeding.
