Important Safety Information
Statements in this manual preceded by the following words are of special
significance.
WARNING!
Means there is the possibility of personal injury to yourself or others.
Other information of particular importance has been placed in italic
type like this.
WARNING!
The PhoneMax is capable of amplifying sounds to a very loud volume.
Instruct all potential users in its proper operation. Do not let children
play with the Phonemax.When the volume control is set to SOFT, the
Phonemax functions as a normal telephone.
WARNING!
This telephone can produce very high (loud) sound levels. Always adjust
the volume control to the minimum setting after using the phone and
alert other users that hearing damage can potentially result from misuse.
WARNING!
This product can be hazardous if immersed in water. To avoid the possibility of electrical shock, do not use it while in the bathtub or shower, or
when you are wet. If you accidentally drop it into water, do not retrieve
it until you have first unplugged the line cord from the modular wall jack.
Do not plug the telephone back in until it has dried thoroughly.
Avoid using the telephone during electrical storms in your immediate
area. Urgent calls should be brief. Even though your telephone company
may be using protective measures to limit electrical surges from entering
your home, absolute protection from lighting is impossible.
If you suspect a gas leak, report it immediately. But use a telephone away
from the affected area. The telephone’s electrical contacts could create a
tiny spark. While unlikely, it is possible this spark could ignite heavy concentrations of gas.

Installation Guide & User Manual
Installation Steps
Step 1: Make sure you have a telephone jack within 6 feet of
the place you’ve chosen to install the PhoneMax. If
you have an older 4-prong jack, you’ll need a modular
jack adapter. These adapters are available from electronic, phone, and other retail stores.
Step 2: Place the Pulse/Tone Switch, located on the side of
the phone, in either Tone or Pulse (Rotary Dial Pulse).
Make sure you choose the correct dialing mode.
Tone dialing will not work if you have only dial
pulse (rotary) service.

For Table/Desk Installations
Step 1: Plug the long line cord into the jack on the back of
the telephone base. (see Fig. 5)
Step 2: Plug the other end of the line cord into a modular
baseboard jack. Make sure both ends snap into place
firmly. (see Fig. 5)
Step 3: Lift the handset and check for dial tone. If you don’t
hear a dial tone, see In Case Of Difficulty, page 12.
Note:
To disconnect, squeeze the clip on the plug and pull
it out from the jack.
For Wall Plate Installations
If you prefer, the PhoneMax can also be mounted on a studded wall phone plate. If you don’t have a phone plate
installed, talk to your phone company or local phone products store.
Step 1: Clip the plastic wall mounting bracket (included) into
bottom of the PhoneMax base unit. (see Fig. 7) Make
sure the tabs snap in securely. This will make the
base unit level with the wall.

Installation Guide & User Manual
Bare Wall Installation
Even if you don’t have a studded wall phone plate, you can
still mount the PhoneMax on any wall surface within six feet
of a standard modular jack.To mount the phone farther from
the jack you’ll need a longer line cord or a telephone extension cord.
Step 1: Measure and mark the wall for mounting screws.
Mark two points 4.0 inches apart for upper and lower
mounting screws. The lower mark should be 48–52
inches from the floor. Use a level to make sure the
marks are aligned vertically.
Step 2: Install the mounting screws (not included).
Use wood screws for stud mounting, anchor screws
for hollow wall mounting. Drive the screws almost
completely in, leaving a 18⁄ (0.125) inch space between
the wall surface and the bottom of the screw head
(about the thickness of two stacked pennies).
Step 3: Rotate the handset hanger to prevent the handset
from falling. (see Fig. 6)
Step 4: Mount the Phonemax.
Hang the telephone on the mounting screws and
push down gently until it snaps into place
Step 5: Connect the line cord to the jack on the top of the
phone. Plug the other end of the line cord into a
modular wall jack.
Make sure it snaps firmly into place.
Step 6: Check for the dial tone.
If you can’t hear a dial tone, see In Case Of Difficulty,
page 12.

In Case Of Difficulty
Can answer calls but cannot make them
The pulse/tone switch is set in the wrong position. Change it
to pulse mode.
No dial tone when you pick-up handset
There are a number of potential causes to this problem:
1. Cords on handset or phone are not plugged into jacks.
Make sure connectors are plugged in securely.
2. The cord could be damaged. If so, replace the cord.
3. The wall jack could be improperly wired. Check the wall
jack for proper wiring.
4. Your phone line could be out of order. Contact your local
phone company.
Can make calls, but phone doesn’t ring for incoming calls.
There are a number of potential causes to this problem:
1. The handset may not be placed properly on the base.
Make sure it is resting properly on the base.
2. The Ringer Volume Control may be set to OFF. Adjust the
switch to LO or HI. (The flashing ring indicator always indicates a call being received.)
3. Too many phones or phone devices may be connected to
the same line. If so, remove other phones or devices from
line.
4. Your older extension phone may cause the PhoneMax to
cut off. If so, install Williams Sound’s optional Equalizer
Phone Accessory (TEL 007) in the line to the older phone.
The Equalizer balances the amount of phone line current
drawn by older phones using the same line as the
Phonemax.

FCC Registration Notice
Your new PhoneMax product has been registered with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). This
product complies with standards in Part 68 of the FCC Rules. The FCC requires us to provide you with the following information:
1.
Connection and use with the nationwide telephone network
The FCC requires that you connect your product to the nationwide telephone network through a modular
telephone outlet or jack. The modular telephone outlet or jack to which the telephone must be connected
is a USOC RJ-11C or RJ-11W.
This equipment may not be used with Party Line Service or with Coin Telephone Lines.
2.
Notification to the telephone company
The FCC requires that upon request of your local telephone company, you provide the following information:
A.
The ‘line’ to which you will connect the telephone equipment (your phone number).
B.
The telephone equipment’s FCC registration number and Ringer Equivalence Number (REN). These
numbers are on the back or bottom of your telephone equipment.
The REN is useful to determine how many devices you may connect to your telephone line and still
have them ring when your telephone line is called. In most, but not all areas, the sum of all REN’s
should be 5 or less. You may want to contact your local telephone company if you experience problems.
3.
Repair instructions
If it is determined that your telephone equipment is malfunctioning, the FCC requires that it not be used
and that it be unplugged from the modular outlet until the problem has been corrected. Repairs to this
telephone equipment can only be made by the manufacturer or its authorized agents or by others who
may be authorized by the FCC. For repair procedures, follow the instructions under the section entitled
Warranty.
4.
Rights of the telephone company
If your product is causing harm to the telephone network, the telephone company may temporarily discontinue your telephone service. If possible, they will notify you before they interrupt service. If advance
notice isn’t practical, you’ll be notified as soon as possible. You’ll be given the opportunity to correct the
problem, and you’ll be informed of your right to file a complaint with the FCC.
Your telephone company may make changes in its facilities, equipment, operations, or procedures that
could effect the proper functioning of your PhoneMax product. If such changes are planned, you’ll be
notified.
5.
This telephone is compatible with inductively coupled (Telecoil) hearing aids.
Interference Information: Part 15 Of FCC Rules
Some telephone equipment generates and uses radio-frequency energy and, if not installed properly, may cause
interference to radio and television reception.
Your PhoneMax product has been tested and found to meet the standards for a Class B computing device, as specified in Subpart J of Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These specifications are designed to provide reasonable protection
against such interference in a residential installation. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not
occur in a particular installation.
If your PhoneMax product causes interference to radio or television reception when it’s in use, you might correct
the interference with any one of these measures.
1.
Where it can be done safely, re-orient the receiving telephone or radio antenna.
2.
To the extent possible, relocate the television, radio or other receiver with respect to the telephone equipment.
