*BE SURE TO CONNECT DRAIN*
MODEL 663
GENERAL INFORMATION
The ‘TRIM OUT’ is the second part of the intercom installation and consists of (1) installing the ROOM STATIONS, DOOR
STATIONS, and (2) installing the MASTER INTERCOM STATION.
Note: For all Master Unit Models
you will need to connect the green
wire on the terminal board
to the green screw on the transformer.
STEP #1, THE ROOM STATIONS
Install the ROOM STATIONS and SPEAKER CONTROLS FIRST. Do not start with the Master Unit. If the Master Unit is installed
first and hooked up electrically the amplifier is operational. If you hook up the stations when the amplifier is operational you will
constantly ‘short out’ the station cables as you cut them to length, strip the insulation, and make the terminal connections. These
‘shorts’ can cause the amplifier to fail. Hook up all the room stations FIRST.
The room stations have color designated screw terminals to connect the four (4) conductor YELLOW, RED, BLACK and GREEN
wires of station cable Model SSC4-X with a green jacket, or five (5) conductor YELLOW, RED, BLACK, GREEN, and WHITE
wires of station cable Model SSC5-X with a violet jacket to connect to stereo room stations or stations with IR remote control.
ONLY for the 663, the shield drain wire should be connected to the room station screw marked “DRAIN” or “SHIELD”. Also, in
each room or patio station there is a link to cut or flag to move in order to convert the station to 660-series operation (with drain
connected). We suggest doing this conversion to all stations at the same time. There is a flag for each station in the master unit
that selects whether that station is STEREO or MONO. The flags are preset for MONO in rooms 1-6, and STEREO in rooms 712, but the flags can be changed as desired. After connecting the colored wires use the two screws furnished with the speaker
unit to secure the speaker to the wall mounting ring.

To install the screen that covers the speaker opening in the grill, place the white cellulose pad against the screen, place the black
video filter on top of the white pad, and align the serrated tabs of the screen opposite the slots in the speaker grill. When all tabs
are opposite slots, press each tab through the slot to secure it to the screen on the grill. To remove the screen, insert the blade of
a pocket size screw driver between the screen and grill indent. Gently pry up the screen lifting it away from the grill. Can opener
this lifting procedure around the entire perimeter of the screen. Be careful, if you try to pull the screen off the grill after partially
raising the screen you can easily bend the screen out of shape damaging the appearance.
STEP #2, THE MASTER UNIT and TERMINAL BOARD
Each station is on a separate ‘shielded’ cable, type SSC4-X or SSC5-X with four or five color coded wires plus a bare drain wire.
Each colored wire connects to a color designated screw on the TERMINAL BOARD packaged with the Master Unit. Twist
(common) all the bare DRAIN WIRES into one cable. Keep the Drain Wire as short as you can to prevent ‘shorting’ ( or use
“spaghetti” ) and connect the Drain Cables to any of the two Drain Terminals as illustrated on page three (3).
NOTE: After connecting all Room Speaker Cables, Door Cables, and the Antenna to the
identified Terminals on the Printed Circuit Board, secure the ‘Terminal Board’ inside the top of
the wall housing as shown above. Be sure to keep the connecting cables in good order, pulled
to the left so that they do not interfere with the CD player when the master unit is inserted into
the rough housing.
See the illustration on page three (3) for the designated large screw terminals to connect the YELLOW, RED, and WHITE wires.
GREEN and BLACK wires are connected to the individual small screw terminals. After all wires and antenna are connected to the
TERMINAL BOARD turn the board so that the ‘notch’ is on the right side, then secure it in the large hole at the top of the wall
housing with all speaker cables and antenna above and outside the housing.
STEP #3, CONNECTING THE MASTER UNIT TO THE LOW VOLTAGE TRANSFORMER
Last of all———attach the GREEN ground wire from the terminal board under the GREEN screw on the COVER of the transformer assembly that was previously installed by a qualified electrician. Slip the two YELLOW terminal wires from the Master Unit
on the two YELLOW 24 volt terminals of the TRANSFORMER, and the one WHITE terminal wire from the Master Unit on the 12
volt terminal of the TRANSFORMER.

Secure the Master Unit in the wall housing with the two screws furnished, one at each end of the Master Unit. Do not OVER
TIGHTEN the screws. You will stress the plastic face panel causing the ‘switch buttons’ to bind.

SPECIAL INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS FOR CD PLAYER
MOUNTING:
The 663 has a close fit into the MH housing. Please use extra care when inserting the master station into the housing so
that the CD-R player does not bang against the MH. The master station should be inserted straight into the MH, rather
than being rotated up into the housing from its hanging position on the green handy wire. The player does had shock
mounts, but it is a good idea to avoid shocks if possible. For the CD to load properly, the master face must be vertical or
tilted with the top closer to the wall. Connecting cables should be pulled to the left to avoid interfering with the CD player.
RESET:
Particularly at installation time or if there is an electrical brownout, it might be necessary to reset the CD-R player and its
controller. This can be done easily from the front panel: Push CD and then OFF and wait about five seconds (you should
hear the CD-R player cycle to reset); then push the EJECT button. Also, when inserting a CD, be sure to insert it at the
same angle as the guide plate located on the right side of the CD slot (not at a large angle) so that the CD will be captured
by the CD-R player and loaded correctly. The CD LED must be on for the CD to play automatically after loading.
STEREO CEILING SPEAKER:
The speaker in the master is intended for the intercom use only. A dual coil ceiling speaker (or two speakers) must be
added for the stereo music. AudioTech recommends using the SD9 8" ceiling speaker with dual tweeters. See diagram on
the next page for speaker connection to the terminal board. To test music operation at the master without ceiling speakers,
there is an internal test switch in the rear of the master at the bottom behind the MP3 player. When the switch is in the UP
position, monaural music will play through the internal master speaker. The master is normally shipped with this switch in
the DOWN position for stereo music played through the ceiling speakers (the internal speaker is then used only during
intercom operation).
IR REMOTE CONTROLS:
IR remote control boards in room stations are connected at the terminal board using the white wire of SSC5-X cable, which
is connnected to the MONO terminal. Also, 455 kHz two-way IR from a Sony CD changer can be connected to the IR board
on the master near the speaker.
CD-R CD-RW BLANKS:
The 663 MP3 player can play CD-R and CD-RW recorded CD’s. An MP3-encoded CD can hold up to 255 tracks on one
CD. Some CD-R blanks will not record well on some CD-R burners. The resulting CD-R might not play on the 663 or on
most car CD players. If this should occur, we recommend using a different brand of CD-R blank, preferably one
recommended by the manufacturer of the CD-R burner.
END OF CD:
The CD Player is programmed to play the CD completely through twice and then automatically stop. END will appear on the
display when this occurs. If you want the CD to play again, simply press the CD button.
AUXILIARY CONNECTION:
To wire in an auxiliary input connection, use the AK3 plate and regular AudioTech intercom cable (SSC4-X or SSC5-X). At
the AK3, connect red to R+ and green to L+. Connect yellow and black to common. Connect shield drain to shield drain of
AK3 but do not connect it at the master unit. At the master unit, cut off the shield to prevent shorting and route the cable
through the cut-off corner of the terminal board. Connect the cable to the three-screw blue connector at the top of the
master unit (on the left of the radio board). Connect red to the left screw (R+); connect green to the right screw (L+); and
connect black and yellow to the center screw (common). Do not connect the shield at the master.
