Rack Mounting
If multiple high-power amp units are mounted in a rack with poor ventilation, the heat from the amps will cause the interior
of the amp to become very hot, causing the performance of the amps to be impaired. In particular, when mounting in a rack
whose back can not be left open, mount according to the following instructions.
Rack:
Fan:
Mounting:
Leave a gap of 10 cm or more between the rear panel of the rack and the rear panel of the amplifier.
Use a fan with 1.5 m3/min or more maximum wind and 5 mmH2O or more maximum static pressure.
Install the fan kit on the top slot or the top panel of the rack and install a blanking panel between two amps.
If the unit is rack mounted and transported frequently, we recommend that the rear of the unit be supported by fitting a pair
of metal brackets, one each side.
Example of mounting
The top figure shows an example of a fan kit (panels and two fans) on the top slot of the rack. The fans are Minebea 3115PS12T-B30 (with 0.9 m3/min maximum wind and 5 mmH2O maximum static pressure).
The bottom figure is a dimensional diagram of a panel on which two 3115PS-12T-B30 are installed.

Protection Circuit
There is a short at the
amplifier’s speaker outputs, the
speaker’s inputs, or in the
wiring.
Locate and remove the short.
The impedance of the connected
speaker is too low.
Use a speaker with a minimum
impedance of 4Ω (8Ω in Bridge
mode).
The heat sink temperature has
exceeded 90°C.
Check the ventilation around the
amplifier and improve the
airflow if necessary.
The thermal protection circuit
activates to protect the power
transistors.
A DC voltage of ±2 V or greater
was detected in the amplifier’s
output circuit.
Consult your dealer or a Yamaha
service center.
The output relay activates to
protect the speaker system.
The PC limiter circuit activates
to protect the power transistors.
