IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Danger
Exposure to extremely high noise levels may cause a
permanent hearing loss. Individuals vary considerably to noise
induced hearing loss but nearly everyone will lose some
hearing if exposed to sufficiently intense noise for a sufficient
time.
The U.S. Government's Occupational Safety and Health
Administration (OSHA) has specified the following
permissible noise level exposures:
DURATION PER DAY (HOURS) 8
SOUND LEVEL (dB)
90
6
93
4 3 2
1
95 97 100 103
According to OSHA, any exposure in the above permissible
limits could result in some hearing loss. Earplugs or protectors
in the ear canal or over the ears must be worn when operating
this amplification system in order to prevent a permanent
hearing loss. If exposure in excess of the limits as put forth
above, to insure against potentially harmful exposure to high
sound pressure levels, it is recommended that all persons
exposed to equipment capable of inducing high sound pressure
levels, such as this amplification system, be protected by
hearing protectors while this unit is in operation.

perte permanente de l’audition, Chaque organisme humain
reagit differemment quant a la perte de l’audition, mais
quasiment tout le monde subit une diminution de I’acuite
auditive lors d’une exposition suffisamment longue au bruit
intense. Les autorites competentes en reglementation de bruit
ont defini les expositions tolerees aux niveaux de bruits:
DURATION PER DAY (HOURS) 8

95 97 100 103
Selon les autorites, toute exposition dans les limites citees cidessus,peuvent provoquer certaines pertes d’audition. Des
bouchons ou protections dans l’appareil auditif ou sur l’oreille
doivent etre portes lors de l’utilisation de ce systeme
d’amplification afin de prevenir le risque de perte permanente
de l’audition, Dans le cas d’expositions superieures aux
limites precitees il est recommande, afin de se premunir contre
les expositions aux pressions acoustiques eIevees
potentielIement dangeureuses, aux personnes exposees aux
equipements capables de delivrer de telles puissances, tels ce
systeme d’amplification en fonctionnement, de proteger
l’appareil auditif.

1. MIC Inputs: Connect dynamic and condenser microphones here. These inputs are designed for low-impedance
mics and equipment that has a mic-level, balanced output. 15-volt phantom power is supplied to all MIC Inputs

2. LINE Inputs: These ¼-inch inputs may be used to connect high-impedance microphones,keyboards, drum
modules and other audio devices.
3. LOW: Adjusts bass frequencies (@100Hz) per channel. Turn clockwise to boost, counter-clockwise to cut.
4. HIGH: Adjusts treble frequencies (@10KHz) per channel. Turn clockwise to boost, counter-clockwise to cut.
CONTROLS & FEATURES
OVERVIEW
5. FX: Controls the level of Digital Delay heard on each chanel.
6. VOLUME: Adjusts the volume of each channel and is used to control overall volume balance between channels.
7. AUX IN: Use this stereo input to connect an audio device such as an MP3 player, phone, or laptop.
Note: Right and Left channels are summed to mono through this input.
8. Bluetooth LED (BT Models Only): Lights when a Bluetooth device is successfully paired to PW BT unit.
POWERLINK CIRCUIT: Use to expand your system by linking multiple units.
The shield connection (pin 1) on Powerlink jacks do not connect to chassis ground. Ground connection is lifted.
BLUETOOTH PAIRING INSTRUCTIONS:
To connect your Bluetooth device to the
Powerwerks Bluetooth receiver for the first
time, navigate to the Bluetooth settings menu
on you Bluetooth enabled device. Ensure that
Bluetooth is enabled and your Powerwerks
product is powered on. Perform a scan for
available devices. Select and pair to the
Powerwerks product in the list of available
devices. Enter 0000 for the passcode if
prompted. Once paired, a connection can be
established. Depending on the device, future
connections may be established automatically
when a previously paired Bluetooth device is in
range of the Powerwerks Bluetooth receiver.
9. POWERLINK IN: Connect to POWERLINK OUT of any PW Unit using standard XLR (microphone) cable.
Channels of linked unit will be summed and heard through this unit. Turn down unused channels to reduce noise.
MASTER VOLUME controls the overall level of mix heard per unit but does not affect the volume of linked units.
7
The Bluetooth receiver in Powerwerks
Bluetooth products is an A2DP device and will
work with other A2DP compatible Bluetooth
devices including most smart phones.
Additional hardware and/or driver software
may be required for computers with integrated
Bluetooth adaptors due to a lack of support for
A2DP devices by some operating systems.
A2DP protocol only allows for one to one
device connections. Therefore, only one
Bluetooth device can be connected to a
Powerwerks Bluetooth product at one time.
Similarly, a Bluetooth device can only be
connected to one Powerwerks Bluetooth
product at one time. Plugging a 1/8” connector
into the AUX jack disables the Powerwerks
Bluetooth receiver.
10. POWERLINK OUT: Connect to POWERLINK IN of any PW Unit using standard XLR (microphone) cable.
Channels will be summed and heard through linked unit. Use the channel volume controls to adjust mix
(Turn down unused channels). This jack may also be connected to a power amp’s BALANCED LINE INPUT.
11. DIGITAL DELAY FX MASTER: Controls overall level of delay effect available to all channels.
12. TIME: Controls the length of time between each delay repeat
8
13. REPEAT: Controls the number of repeats heard when using delay effect
9

14. Sub Out: Use this jack for connecting a powered subwoofer. Use a shielded instrument cable to send
line-level, unbalanced signal crossed over at 150Hz. When jack is disconnected, crossover is bypassed and unit
operates at full-range. When possible, plug PA System and Subwoofer AC cables into same outlet or power strip
to avoid ground loop hum.
15. VOICE/MUSIC Switch: Selects global EQ curve taylored for VOICE or MUSIC applications.
VOICE=Flat. MUSIC=800Hz Notch

16. MASTER VOLUME: Master Volume: Controls the overall volume of all channels including audio connected
to POWERLINK IN. Does not affect POWERLINK OUT level.
17. EXTERNAL SPEAKER: Connect PW4X6EX or PW4X8EX passive speaker here.
18. POWER: This switch activates power to the unit. Switch is lit in the “ON” position.

19. AC Power Cord Receptacle: Insert the AC cord included with your PW unit here. Insert cord firmly into AC
Power Cord Receptacle. Replace the AC cord if protective jacket or ground pin are damaged or removed.
20. Fuse: The fuse is located in a fuse tray just below the receptacle. Replace only with the same type and size.
For your convenience, a spare fuse is located inside the fuse tray toward the front. To replace fuse, remove AC
power cord. Remove fuse tray by pulling the tab located above the fuse symbol away from the receptacle.
