WARNING!
USING THIS SYSTEM AT EXCESSIVE VOLUMES CAN CAUSE PERMANENT HEARING DAMAGE.
USE AS LOW A VOLUME AS POSSIBLE.
In order to use this system safely, avoid prolonged listening at excessive sound pressure levels. Please use the following guidelines established by the Occupational Safety Health Administration (OSHA) on maximum time exposure
to sound pressure levels before hearing damage occurs.
90 dB SPL at 8 hours
95 dB SPL at 4 hours
100 dB SPL at 2 hours
105 dB SPL at 1 hour
110 dB SPL at 1/2 hour
115 dB SPL at 15 minutes
120 dB SPL — avoid or damage may occur
It is difficult to measure the exact Sound Pressure Levels (SPL) present at the eardrum in live applications. In addition
to the volume setting on the PSM, the SPL in the ear is affected by ambient sound from floor wedges or other devices.
The isolation provided by the fit of quality earphones is also an important factor in determining the SPL in the ear.
Here are some general tips to follow in the use of this product to protect your ears from damage:
1. Turn up the volume control only far enough to hear properly.
2. Ringing in the ears may indicate that the gain levels are too high. Try lowering the gain levels.
3. Have your ears checked by an audiologist on a regular basis. If you experience wax buildup in your ears,
stop using the system until an audiologist has examined your ears.
4. Wipe the earphones with an antiseptic before and after use to avoid infections. Stop using the earphones if
they are causing great discomfort or infection.
This symbol indicates that there are important operating and maintenance instructions in
the literature accompanying this unit.

Once the basic set up is complete, use the P4M Personal Monitor Mixer to create a custom mix:
Mix the signal from each audio input using the corresponding CONCENTRIC LEVEL/PAN knob:
OUTER RING: Use this to pan the signal to the left or right channel of the stereo mix.
INNER KNOB: Use this to control the level of the audio input.
Observe the signal/clip LEDs next to each CONCENTRIC LEVEL/PAN knob.
NOTE: Decrease the level of an input if the corresponding signal/clip LED is consistently red. If the level is decreased all the way and the
LED remains red, the level of the input from the previous device in the audio chain is too high and should be decreased.
Up to two additional line-level audio sources (such as other mixers, a click track or a digital sequencer) may be added via
the AUX IN inputs. These signals go directly to the MIX OUT outputs and are not affected by the CONCENTRIC LEVEL/
PAN knobs.
To pass an unaltered signal through the mixer, use the corresponding SPLIT OUTPUT.
NOTE: Although the mixer does not provide phantom power for condenser microphones, the SPLIT OUTPUTS can pass phantom power
from a phantom power supply to a microphone connected to the corresponding input jack.
CAUTION!: Use a “direct box” when connecting guitars, keyboards, and other instruments to a mixing console through
the P4M Mixer. The phantom power that mixing consoles provide for microphones can damage other instruments. Connect
the instrument to the direct box then connect the direct box to the P4M Mixer input.

WHAT IS MIXMODE CONTROL?
The P4R receiver receives two signals (1/L and 2/R) from the P4T transmitter. The P4R processes these signals in either MixMode or stereo:
STEREO: In stereo, the signals remain separate so that 1/L is heard through the left earphone and 2/R is heard through
the right earphone. The balance knob on the P4R adjusts the balance between the left and right earphones.
MIXMODE: In MixMode, the signals are “mixed” in relation to one another using the balance knob, blended into one
signal. The one mixed signal is sent to both the left and right earphones.
Using MixMode
Step Two: Using the balance knob,
the user blends the two signals until
the correct mix is achieved.
MIXMODE
channel 1
COUNTERCLOCKWISE
MID-POINT
Step Four: The user may continue to adjust the blend using
the balance knob throughout
the performance.
MIXMODE
channel 2
CLOCKWISE
Step One: The P4R
receives TWO signals
from the P4T transmitter.
Step Three: The P4R
sends the mixed signal
to both earphones.
MIXMODE IN APPLICATIONS
MixMode is most useful when two distinct mixes are provided to the P4T transmitter, such as a band mix and a vocal mix. MixMode combines
these two signals into one monitor mix and allows you to control this mix during the performance using the P4R receiver. For example, if the
band overpowers the vocals in the mix, increase the level of the vocals and decrease the level of the band by simply adjusting the balance
knob on the receiver.
