LED's for that channel flash seven times (resetting all filters). The CLIP LED will flash. Release the
RESET push button. Repeat this procedure for the other channel.
Press the BYPASS push button on one channel of the Feedback Exterminator (placing it into the
ACTIVE mode). The BYPASS LED will turn off.
Slowly increase the Audio System's master volume only for the channel being set until feedback
occurs. You will hear the Feedback Exterminator eliminate the feedback. The first LED will blink
indicating that this filter has been set.
Continue to very slowly increase the master volume until 10 filters are set in the same way. The
CLIP LED will automatically stop flashing. The filter LED's will scroll back and forth indicating that
this procedure has been successfully performed.
Decrease the master volume so that the system is not on the verge of another feedback frequency.
Press the LOCK FIXED push button for this channel to save these settings.
To set the other channel of the Feedback Exterminator, press the BYPASS push button (placing it
into the ACTIVE mode). The BYPASS LED will turn off.
Repeat steps 5 to 8 to complete the Feedback Exterminator setup. The Audio System should now
be capable of operating at increased volumes without feedback.
TROUBLESHOOTING
Refer to the manufacturer’s owner manual in the binder for detailed troubleshooting information.
1. Verify all cables are firmly connected.
2. Verify power is supplied to all components. Are there visible lights on each component?
3. Verify channels on the power amplifier are turned up. They should be set about three-quarters of the
way up (turned clockwise).
