AN-820 (not supplied) can be used.
B PROJECTOR CONTROL CONTROL S IN/OUT
connectors (stereo mini jack)
Used to control the LCD Data Projector VPL-PX15
exclusively.
Notes
For details on the function of this connector, see
“PROJECTOR CONTROL CONTROL S IN/OUT

• If the antenna is not installed correctly, faulty reception
may result, including intermittent sound. The
performance of the antenna should be fully confirmed
prior to installation, especially if the location does not
allow the antenna to be easily repositioned after
installation.
• Use a coaxial cable with impedance of 50Ω to connect
the antenna. In the case of a 5D-FB cable, the maximum
length is approximately 50 meters. Do not use 5C-2V or
other cables with an impedance of 75Ω, as such cables
have a short maximum cable length that is about half that
of a 5D-FB and may be a source of technical problems.
• Do not install the supplied antennas in a place
surrounded by metal object, as this may cause the
reception failure.
If noise occurs
Depending on the installation location, it may be
impossible to use a specific channel due to external noise
or electromagnetic interference. If this happens, with the
wireless microphone or the transmitter turned off, select a
channel on the tuner unit that does not light up the RF
indicator (i.e., a channel that is not adversely affected by
noise or interference). Then set the wireless microphone or
the transmitter to the same channel as the tuner unit.

To suppress howling
System Configurations and Speaker Connections
While talking on the microphone in a normal voice,
adjust the TRIM control so that the REF. indicator
lights intermittently.
2
Adjust the volume on the SRP-X500P.
Set the input level control and the MASTER control
to 0 dB position.
3
Set up the microphone.
Place the microphone where it is used and adjust the
direction.
4
Adjust the speaker output.
Turn up the SPEAKER OUT control on the SRPX500P slowly until the speaker output reaches the
level to be heard from anywhere within the place. Be
sure to turn down the SPEAKER OUT control whose
corresponding speaker output is not used fully to –∞
dB.
5
Perform the howling suppression.
Keep pressing the FEED BACK REDUCER button
on the SRP-X500P for the corresponding MIC
INPUT connector for 2 seconds or more.
The button indicator flashes as the SRP-X500P scans
the frequency bands.
When the button indicator stops flashing and lights
up, howling suppression is completed.
Notes
• While the SRP-X500P is scanning the frequency
bands, the sound similar to howling may be output.
If the output sound is too loud, press the FEED
BACK REDUCER button to cancel the procedure,
turn down the SPEAKER OUT control, then try
again.
• Do not make a noise while the SRP-X500P is
scanning the frequency bands, as this may cause
error in detection.
• When you use the AGC (automatic gain control)
function, do the setting by using the SRP-X500P
Manager software before performing the procedure
above.

connectors are output to the OUTPUT VIDEO
connector in composite format only.
− Video signals input from the COMPONENT/RGB D/
E connectors are output to the OUTPUT
COMPONENT/RGB connector in either RGB or
component format. Be sure to change the input signal
format setting on the projector to match the format of
the signal output from the SRP-X500P.
− When “OTHER TERMINAL” is selected using the
SRP-X500P Manager software, the signal is
automatically input to the INPUT B connector on the
projector or the monitor.

Precautions on the use of interface boxes for
environmental equipment (screen, curtains, light)
• The output pins of the REMOTE PARALLEL connector
provide open-collector output for alternate operation.
This means that an ON signal is continuously output
from the output pins when environmental equipment is
operated, regardless of the operating condition of the
equipment. For this reason, stopping a motor during a
raising or lowering operation should be carried through
the interface box.
• When making an interface box, it should be designed so
that the screen and curtain operation stops and the
