Without the CD player, all the versions herein can be configured with up to 4 modules, among
which one can be repeater transmitter/MP3/Bluetooth module.
However, when CD is installed, only two module slots will be freed and available.
The wireless receiver/transmitter module is in the UHF PLL synthesized type with 16 or 100
preset frequencies. Some receivers are equipped with IrDA 2-ways synchronization.
Configuration
STAGE PRO / STAGE MAN may come equipped with the following:
1. AC power cord
2. 1~4 or no wireless receiver/transmitter/MP3/Bluetooth module(s).
3. 1~4 transmitters, either handheld or belt-pack transmitter (except version with no module
installed).
Optional accessories
1. Weather proof dust cover.
2. Single trolley bag/Dual trolley case
3. Tripod stand
4. Companion active powered speaker (Slave speaker for STAGE PRO)
5. Companion passive speaker (external speaker for STAGE MAN)
6. Wired microphone.
Remark
STAGE PRO is a 2-way speaker system with electronics crossover, one can NOT connect a
passive speaker to this system as external speaker. Instead, active powered speaker should be
used (either wired or via wireless link) as external speaker for STAGE PRO!
STAGE MAN is a full range coaxial speaker system, its amplifier is capable of driving a passive
external speaker via Speaker OUT and the external speaker used MUST be a passive one!
Specifications are subject to change without prior notice.

Operating Loudness on STAGE PRO
1. Plug the instrument’s audio cable with a
6.3mm or XLR connector to instrument
input 1 or 2.
2. Turn on master POWER and then adjust to
desired volume.
When the amplifier’s sound is at low level, the
tone might not be heard clearly and activating
the Loudness function can raise the tone level
to make it clearer.

Operating Voice Priority
Voice Priority operation is only necessary when CD/USB/MP3 is
playing.
STAGE PRO
When the Voice Priority switch is ON, the ducking function will be
activated. While the music is playing, a voice input from either a Wired
or Wireless Microphone will temporarily override and lower the volume
of the background music and voice could be heard more clearly.
Background music will return to its original setting when no audio input
STAGE MAN
is entering the microphone for a certain time. However, if the
microphone is not switch off, the reentering of music into the microphone will also activate the
voice priority function.
Limiter Function
There’s an interior anti-overload circuit to protect the amplifier from being damaged due
to over volume output, this design will automatically lower the output when it goes over
the limit.
Operating active audio link on STAGE PRO
STAGE PRO could be operated as the MASTER unit in an audio link (wired) configuration. The
Master is capable of daisy chain manner wire connecting of up to about 20 active speakers
(Stage Slave). To install the link, just:
1. Connect the Active OUT of the Master to the Active IN of the 1st STAGE SLAVE.
2. The SLAVE’s output jack should be connected to the Active IN of the 2nd STAGE SLAVE
and so forth.

Charging the battery
This amplifier uses either two lead-acid batteries or one lithium battery. The
battery power is leveled from 40%, 60%, 80% and FULL. If the LED stays at
40%, the battery might not be sustainable for long operation.
 During recharging: LED flashes RED
 Fully charged: LED grows GREEN
 Wrong or no battery detected: LED grows YELLOW.
Operating the wireless microphone
1. Set the master volume control at minimum level, especially working on a wireless version,
and then turn on the master power of the amplifier.
2. Turn on the receiver module and adjust the receiver volume to a desired level and the
operation is ready.

MAINTENANCE-FREE LEAD ACID BATTERY
Guidelines for maintenance-free Batteries:
1. Battery should operate at temperatures between 15°C ~ 50°C. To ensure a longer life span, it
should be kept between 5°C ~ 35°C. For optimum result, 20°C ~ 25°C will be ideal. When
temperature falls 15 degrees below zero, battery will undergo some changes in its chemical
contents and therefore cannot be recharged. Operating the battery at higher temperature will result
in higher capacity but shorter lifespan, whereas lower temperatures operation has a longer lifespan
but less capacity.
2. If the battery is not recharged 72 hrs after it is completely used, it will be permanently
damaged.
3. When the battery is being charged, the internal gases will be electrolyzed into water at the
negative charge, maintaining the battery’s storage abilities with no water added. However, erosion
at the charged ends of the battery will cause poor performance.
4. The battery’s cycle lifespan (no. of charge and discharge cycle) is determined by the degree at
which power is dissipated, especially the degree of discharged each time it is used and the
recovery charging method. For normal use, the battery can be used for longer hours when less
power is dissipated each time and vice versa. At 25°C, maintenance-free batteries could be
charged 150 ~ 200 times at 100% discharge each time.
5. Decrease in capacity, internal short circuit, deformation in appearance, erosion of charged ends
and decrease in open circuit voltage are symbols indicating battery is approaching the end of its
life cycle.
6. When two batteries are used in parallel connection, the resistance of the cables should be kept
equal.
Properties of the Lead Acid Battery:
1. Has no memory effect. Can be charged anytime, even when the recharge indication light is off.
2. Performance and efficiency are affected by changes in the environment, especially temperature
and humidity. (Best operated between 20°C ~ 25°C)
3. Battery discharge naturally according to a certain pattern even not in use. For best performance
and a prolonged lifespan, it should be recharged every month even when not in use.
4. Under normal circumstances, battery could last for about a year.
5. When the battery’s life expires, possible indicators include internal short-circuit, decrease in
capacity, deformation in appearance, erosion of charged ends and decrease in operating voltage.
User’s Precautions:
1. For first-time use, charge the battery for 10 hrs until it is fully charged.
2. To maintain performance and lifespan, if product has not been used for 3 months after the initial
shipment, please fully charge the battery.
3. Before each use, it’s advisable to charge the battery to its full capacity.
4. The average lifespan of the battery is one year. The user is advised to change the battery after
one year of use.
5. The current consumption is in direct ratio with load current. The more current consumption, the
less the operation time.
6. Warranty will be void if the battery is not charged for a prolong period as it may lose all its
charge and could never be recovered again.
