IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
1.
2.
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:
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
DURATION PER DAY (HOURS) 8 6 4 3 2 1
SOUND LEVEL (dB)
90 93 95 97 100 103
8.
According to OSHA, any exposure in the above permissible limits could
result in some hearing loss. Ear plugs 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.

L‘exposition a des niveaux eleves de bruit peut provoquer une 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:
DURE EN HEURES PAR JOUR

Selon les autorites, toute exposition dans les limites citees ci-dessus,
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

Introduction
Congratulations on your decision to purchase Pulse, BreatheAudio's new 200-Watt Audio Amplifier. Now you can enjoy the powerful sound reinforcement of
the Pulse amplifier while supplying the additional boost your audio source needs to make your home come alive with the celebration of sound. Easily
incorporated with your other audio equipment, Pulse connects to the audio inputs and outputs available on most audio source equipment.
The Pulse Audio Amplifier delivers remarkably clean, robust sound to even the largest areas around your home at a very attainable price. The Pulse Audio
Amplifier provides 100 Watts of clean, rich sound to two channels with features typically found in much more expensive and complex audio amplifiers. The
compact half-rack layout is designed to fit side by side with the BreatheAudio Elevate Audio Distribution System, keeping the rack clean and open for
additional home audio components.
Pulse offers you the flexibility of dynamic power control. By implementing the control input/output feature, the audio amplifier is triggered to power on and
off by an external voltage of 3-30 volts, either AC or DC. This feature is ideal when used in conjunction with whole-house audio systems, such as the
BreatheAudio Elevate, equipped with control output capable of supplying the necessary voltage trigger.
We hope that you will enjoy this new adventure in music in your home, and wish to hear any and all comments that you have about the features and overall
performance of our product. As you set up and use your new Pulse system, please contact us and let us know what you think at:

Installing the BA-200 Audio Amplifier
Audio Source Inputs
The Audio input on the back panel of the BA-200 is designed to receive a stereo audio signal from any component capable of providing a stereo line level
output. The connection is a 3.5 mm stereo mini jack. The BreatheAudio™ Elevate System has a corresponding Output stereo 3.5 mm jack that is designed to
work with the Audio input on the BA-200. This connection is easily made using the included stereo mini cable, fig.1.

Voltage Trigger
The BA-200 is capable of being triggered to turn on using the input labeled Control. The BA-200 is designed to respond to any incoming voltage of 3 - 30
volts. Many audio components have a voltage output for this purpose. The connection is easily made using a mono cable with a 3.5 mm mini connection on
both ends. A voltage trigger cable is supplied with the package. This is plugged into the voltage trigger output on the source component and into the voltage
input on the BA-200. The BreatheAudio Elevate Audio Distribution System has an output labeled Control for use with the BA-200, fig. 3. By using the voltage
trigger, the BA-200 power switch can be left in the on position and triggered to turn on and off automatically by the presence of a voltage from the audio
source equipment.

Speaker Output
The BA-200 provides 100 watts output per channel at 4 ohms and is stable down to 2 ohms. This allows it to provide an audio signal to multiple pairs of
speakers in a large area. It uses a modular plug that will accept up to 14-gauge, two or four-conductor speaker wire, however 16-gauge wire is
recommended. The proper polarity is Left negative, Left positive, Right negative, and Right positive, fig. 4.
