MM-10 Miniature Subwoofer
The MM-10 features an operating frequency range of 33 Hz
to 228 Hz with a conservatively rated maximum peak SPL of
123 dB. The MM-10 bass reflex cabinet houses a single 10inch driver and a single-channel power amplifier complete
with onboard processing, including a crossover, driver protection, and frequency and phase correction. The built-in
crossover accepts full-range signals, facilitating basic daisychaining for signal distribution, eliminating the need for
external crossovers in small setups.
The MM-10 subwoofer is available from the factory in three
models — the MM-10XP, MM-10AC, and MM-10ACX —
each offering different internal configurations and audio and
power connectors (which cannot be upgraded).
7
CHAPTER 1: INTRODUCTION
The MM-10XP Subwoofer
The MM-10ACX Subwoofer
The MM-10XP is powered by an external 48 V DC power
supply, eliminating the need for wiring conduits while still
preserving the advantages of self-powered loudspeaker
systems. The unit's onboard amplifier and signal-processing
circuits were designed to store DC power and tolerate voltage drops, thereby accommodating light-gauge cables and
lengthy cable runs. The MM-10XP is available with either a
Phoenix™ 5-pin male or sealed SwitchCraft® EN3™ male
connector for receiving balanced audio and DC power. The
EN3 connector is ideal for outdoor, all-weather use.
The MM-10ACX model includes onboard DC power and
audio routing for driving a pair of MM-4XP miniature loudspeakers, or a single UP-4XP ultracompact loudspeaker,
effectively placing the MM-10ACX at the heart of an
extremely capable compact, full-range loudspeaker system.
Three XLR female inputs are included for receiving audio for
the subwoofer and two satellite loudspeakers. The
MM-10ACX is available with either Phoenix 5-Pin male or EN3
5-pin female satellite outputs. A two-channel stereo signal
can be patched to the satellite inputs and summed and routed
to the subwoofer if necessary.
The MPS-488HP External Power Supply
MM-10XPs require an MPS-488HP external power supply.
The single-space 19-inch rack unit receives balanced audio
from its XLR female inputs and routes the audio, along with
48 V of DC power, to its channel outputs. The channel outputs — equipped with either Phoenix 5-pin male connectors
or EN3 5-pin female connectors — can deliver DC power to
up to eight MM-10XP subwoofers.
MM-10 OPTIONS
Additional options for the MM-10 include the MUB-MM10
U-bracket for mounting the subwoofer on ceilings and walls;
weather protection, complete with a rain hood, for outdoor
all-weather use; and custom color finishes for installations
and applications with specific cosmetic requirements.
MPS-488HP Power Supply
Cable lengths up to 150 feet for DC power are possible
when using 18-AWG wire, with just 1 dB of loss in peak
SPL. Longer cable runs are possible for moderate applications that don't drive the subwoofers to maximum output, or
for installations with heavier wire gauges.
The use of composite multiconductor cables (such as
Belden® 1502) allows a single cable to carry both DC power
and balanced audio to the MM-10XPs.
The MM-10AC Subwoofer
The MM-10AC is ideal for fixed installations and portable
applications where AC power is readily available to power
the unit. The MM-10AC includes an internal power supply
and locking PowerCon connectors for AC input and AC loop
output (for powering additional MM-10AC subwoofers). The
MM-10AC receives audio from an XLR female input, and
also includes an XLR male loop output for daisy-chaining
audio signals.

MM-10 with MUB-MM10 U-Bracket
CHAPTER 2: THE MM-10XP SUBWOOFER
The MM-10XP is powered by an external 48 V DC power
supply, eliminating the need for wiring conduits while still
preserving the advantages of self-powered loudspeaker
systems. The unit's onboard amplifier and signal-processing
circuits were designed to store DC power and tolerate voltage drops, thereby accommodating light-gauge cables and
lengthy cable runs.
THE MM-10XP INPUT CONNECTOR
The MM-10XP subwoofer is available with either a Phoenix
5-pin male or SwitchCraft EN3 5-pin male connector for
receiving DC power and balanced audio. The EN3 connector is ideal for outdoor, all-weather use. The connector’s five
pins include two for DC power (negative and positive) and
three for balanced audio (shield, negative, and positive).
These pins are clearly labeled on the MM-10XP rear panel.
To function properly, the MM-10XP requires 48 V of DC
power.
MM-10XP with Phoenix 5-Pin Male Connector
MM-10XP Rear Panel, Shown with Phoenix Connector
MM-10XP with EN3 5-Pin Male Connector
Depending on the subwoofer’s connector, the MM-10XP
ships with either a single Phoenix cable connector or an
EN3-to-pigtail cable for constructing loudspeaker cables.
NOTE: The pin outputs for the MM-10XP EN3
connector is identical to that of the MM-4XP.
However, the MM-10XP EN3 connector has been
rotated to accommodate the unit’s internal connections.

CHAPTER 2: THE MM-10XP SUBWOOFER
THE MM-10XP INPUT POLARITY SWITCH
CAUTION: If the Limit LED turns red and stays
solid red after powering up and the audio is
muted, the subwoofer has encountered a failure and
may need to be serviced. Contact Meyer Sound
Technical Support.
!
The Input Polarity switch swaps the polarity of the audio
source signal, which is sometimes necessary to acoustically
align the subwoofer with other loudspeakers in the system.
When the switch is in the up (non-inverting) position, the
positive audio pin (+) is hot relative to the negative audio
pin (–), resulting in a positive pressure wave when a positive
signal is applied to the positive pin. When the switch is in the
down (inverting) position, the negative audio pin (–) is hot
relative to the positive audio pin (+), resulting in a positive
pressure wave when a positive signal is applied to the negative pin.
CAUTION: If the Limit LED turns solid red and
the MM-10XP continues to output audio,
though at reduced levels, the subwoofer’s voltage
may have dropped below 25 V DC. When these conditions are encountered, operation of the subwoofer
should cease and its power supply and cabling
should be verified.
!
Limiting (Yellow)
MM-10XP Input Polarity Switch
NOTE: The text for the Input Polarity switch on
the MM-10XP rear panel shows Pin 2 and
Pin 3, which is the convention used for the MM-10AC
and MM-10ACX models. However, the MM-10XP
Input Polarity switch actually reverses the polarity for
Pin 4 and Pin 5 of its input connector.
Limiting activity is indicated when the Limit LED turns yellow. When engaged, the limiter protects the subwoofer’s
driver and prevents signal peaks from causing excessive
distortion in the subwoofer’s amplifier, thereby preserving
headroom and maintaining smooth frequency responses at
high levels. When the level returns to normal, below the limiter’s threshold, the LED turns green and limiting ceases.
The MM-10XP performs within its acoustical specifications
at normal temperatures when the Limit LED is green, or if the
LED turns yellow for two seconds or less and then returns to
green for at least one second. If the LED remains yellow for
longer than three seconds, the subwoofer enters hard limiting where:
THE MM-10XP LIMIT LED
■
Increases to the input level have no effect.
The MM-10XP has a three-color Limit LED on its rear panel
that changes color to indicate the subwoofer’s status.
■
Distortion increases due to clipping and nonlinear driver
operation.
■
The drivers are subjected to excessive heat and excursion, which will compromise their life span and may
eventually lead to damage over time.
CAUTION: The Limit LED turns yellow when
the subwoofer’s signal rises 2 dB above the
limiting threshold, and indicates a safe, optimum level
has been exceeded. If the MM-10XP subwoofers in a
system begin to limit before reaching the desired
SPL, consider adding more subwoofers to the system to achieve the desired SPL without exposing the
subwoofers to excessive levels and possible overheating.
!
MM-10XP Limit LED
Powering On (Green)
When powering up the MM-10XP subwoofer, the following
startup events occur and are indicated by the Limit LED:
1. The LED flashes green and then yellow during power up.
2. The LED turns solid green indicating the subwoofer is
ready to reproduce audio.
10
MM-10 OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
MM-10XP Temperature and Limiting
The Limit LED turns solid yellow when its heat sink temperature reaches 65° C (145° F), indicating the unit is reaching its
maximum heat dissipation and a reduction in SPL is recommended. While the MM-10XP will continue to operate while
the LED is yellow, the limiter threshold is lowered to a safe
level (causing the output level to be lowered by 6 dB) to prevent the subwoofer from overheating. When the temperature
of the heat sink cools to 50°C (122°F), the LED changes
from yellow to green and the limiter threshold returns to normal.
Clipping (Red)
The Limit LED flashes red when its input signal causes the
amplifier to overload. If the LED flashes red continuously, the
subwoofer is severely overloaded and a reduction in the
input level is recommended.
Cable Lengths and Cable Gauges for
MM-10XPs
When connecting an MM-10XP to an MPS-488HP channel
output, you can use cable lengths of up to 150 feet with only
1 dB of peak SPL loss using 18 AWG wire. Longer cable
lengths are possible with heavier wire gauges (see Table 1
and Table 2).

CAUTION: If the Limit LED turns solid red and
! the subwoofer continues to output audio,
though at reduced levels, the subwoofer’s voltage
may have dropped below 25 V DC. When these conditions are encountered, operation of the subwoofer
should cease and its power supply and cabling
should be verified.
MM-10XP CURRENT DRAW AND CABLE
REQUIREMENTS
Each MM-10XP subwoofer draws a maximum current of
3.31 A average and 3.45 A peak from the 48 V DC output of
the MPS-488HP. The current draw for the MM-10XP is
dynamic and fluctuates as operating levels change. The
cabling between the MM-10XP and the MPS-488HP adds
resistance and hence causes a voltage drop at the subwoofer. Because lower DC voltages compromise amplifier
performance (peak SPL), and in some cases frequency
response, cable resistance should be kept to a minimum.

NOTE: When connecting an MM-10XP to an
MPS-488HP channel output, the total cable
resistance should not exceed 2 ohms.
Calculating the Maximum Cable Length
The maximum cable length for an MM-10XP can be calculated with the following formula:
maximum length = 2 ohms / 2 * cable resistance
For example, the maximum length of an 18 AWG cable with
a resistance of 0.00636 is 157.2 feet (2 / 2 * 0.00636).
NOTE: For long cable runs, you can use a large
cable gauge for DC power and a separate balanced audio cable for audio.

CHAPTER 2: THE MM-10XP SUBWOOFER
WIRING MM-10XP LOUDSPEAKER CABLES
WITH BELDEN 1502 CABLE
When wiring MM-10XP loudspeaker cables with Belden
1502 or an equivalent cable, use the conventions in Table 3.
The red and black wires in the Belden 1502 cable have a
thicker gauge than the other three wires and should be used
for DC power. The blue, white, and shield wires are shielded
together and should be used for audio.

the MPS-488HP channel output connector (see “Channel
Inputs” on page 14).
Wiring EN3-to-Pigtail Cables
MM-10XPs equipped with EN3 connectors are shipped with
one 10-foot EN3 5-pin female-to-pigtail cable. The EN3 end
of the cable connects directly to the MM-10XP input connector. The pigtail end of the cable can be equipped with
either an EN3 5-pin male connector for connecting to the
MPS-488HPe power supply, or a Phoenix 5-pin female connector for connecting to the MPS-488HPp power supply.
The pigtail can also be spliced to a longer loudspeaker cable
or to a junction box. The included EN3-to-pigtail cable uses
a multiconductor cable, which can be wired for both DC
power and balanced audio. The EN3-to-pigtail cable is available in plenum or regular (non-plenum) versions.
NOTE: For a complete list of cables and cable
connectors available from Meyer Sound that
can be used with the MM-10XP subwoofer and
MPS-488HP power supply, see Appendix A, “MM-10
Accessories.”

CHAPTER 3: POWERING MM-10XP SUBWOOFERS WITH THE MPS-488HP
The MPS-488HP power supply delivers DC power and balanced audio to Meyer Sound loudspeakers that require a
48 V DC external power supply. The MPS-488HP is a multichannel, switched-mode, regulated power supply that occupies one space in a standard 19-inch rack. The MPS-488HP
can power up to eight MM-10XP subwoofers.
THE MPS-488HP FRONT PANEL
The MPS-488HP front panel includes a power switch and
LEDs for monitoring each loudspeaker channel.
MPS-488HPp Power Supply Front Panel
AC Power
The MPS-488HP is powered on and off with the AC Power
switch.
Voltage and Load Current LEDs (1–8)
The Voltage and Load Current LEDs are useful for verifying
whether each channel output has voltage and whether the
connected loudspeakers are receiving DC power and audio.
MPS-488HP Channel LEDs
Voltage LEDs (1–8)
The blue Voltage LEDs indicate whether voltage is present
for each channel output. These LEDs should be lit when the
MPS-488HP is powered on. The MPS-488HP’s intelligent
circuit protection shields connected loudspeakers from
surges and shorts. The blue Voltage LEDs flash on and off
when a surge or short is encountered. If a channel’s Voltage
LED flashes on and off, you should power down the
MPS-488HP and inspect the cabling for that channel.
MPS-488HPp with Eight MM-10XPs
NOTE: The MPS-488HP power supply is available in two models: the MPS-488HPp, which is
equipped with Phoenix 5-pin male output connectors, and the MPS-488HPe, which is equipped with
EN3 5-pin female output connectors.
Load Current LEDs (1–8)
The green Load Current LEDs indicate whether a loudspeaker is connected to the channel and receiving power.
As a channel’s audio signal increases, its LED glows
brighter. If an LED is not lit, check that the channel’s Voltage
LED is lit and verify the cable connection to the loudspeaker.

Link switches determine how Channel Inputs are routed to
Channel Outputs. When a Channel Input’s Link switch is
OFF (set to the down position), the input is only routed to its
corresponding output: for example, Channel Input 1 routed
to Channel Output 1. When a Link switch is ON (set to the
up position), the input is routed to its corresponding output
and the next adjacent output: for example, Channel Input 1
routed to Channel Output 1 and Channel Output 2. If multiple, adjacent Link switches are enabled, the input is routed
to each adjacent output: for example, Channel Input 1
routed to Channel Outputs 1, 2, and 3.

MPS-488HP Link Switches
The MPS-488HP has a PowerCon twist-lock AC Input connector (line, neutral/line, earth). The connector can accept
different power cord types for outlets used throughout the
world. Make sure to use the correct power cord for the AC
power in your area. The MPS-488HP operates at an AC voltage range of 100–240 V at 50–60 Hz.
NOTE: Channel Inputs are inactive when the
Link switch for their preceding Channel Input is
enabled. Connections should not be made to inactive
Channel Inputs.
Routing Audio Inputs with the Link Switches
Channel Inputs
Up to eight channels of balanced audio are received from the
MPS-488HP’s eight Channel Inputs. The inputs are equipped
with XLR female connectors (pin 1, ground; pin 2, signal positive; pin 3, signal negative). Make sure to use standard balanced XLR cables with all three pins connected on both ends.
The following examples illustrate several common routing
applications for the MPS-488HPp.

Outputs:
■
To avoid distortion when linking Channel Inputs, make sure
the source device can drive the total load impedance of the
linked MM-10XP subwoofers. The source device must be
capable of delivering a minimum of 16 dBV (6.3 V rms into
600 ohms) to yield the maximum peak SPL over the operating bandwidth of the subwoofer.
NOTE: Most source devices are capable of
driving loads no smaller than 10 times their
output impedance. To drive eight MM-10XPs linked
from a single Channel Input, the source device
should have an output impedance of approximately
100 ohms or less.
Channel Outputs
The MPS-488HP’s eight Channel Outputs deliver DC power
(48 V DC) and balanced audio to up to eight MM-10XPs. The
channel outputs can be equipped with either Phoenix 5-pin
male connectors (on the MPS-488HPp model) or EN3 5-pin
male connectors (on the MPS-488HPe model).

Input Impedance for Linked Channel Inputs
When a Link switch is enabled, the Channel Input’s unbuffered source signal is transmitted in parallel to each linked
Channel Output. This causes the Channel Input’s impedance (normally 10 kOhms for one MM-10XP) to be reduced
for each linked output. For example:
■
1 Channel Output, 10 kOhm input impedance
■
2 Channel Outputs, 5 kOhm input impedance
■
4 Channel Outputs, 2500 ohms input impedance
■
8 Channel Outputs, 1250 ohms input impedance
NOTE: For information on MM-10XP cable
requirements, see “MM-10XP Current Draw
and Cable Requirements” on page 11. For information on cables and cable accessories available from
Meyer Sound, see Appendix A, “MM-10 Accessories.” For information on cable assembly, see
Appendix C, “Phoenix and EN3 Cable Assembly.”
TIP: A single composite cable (such as Belden
1502) wired for both DC power and balanced
audio can be used to connect MM-10XPs to Channel
Outputs.
CAUTION: When wiring cable connections for
the MPS-488HP channel outputs, it is
extremely important that each pin in the connector is
wired correctly. Make sure the 48 V DC from the
MPS-488HP is wired directly (and only) to the 48 V
DC pins on the MM-10XP connector, and that the
polarity is observed (negative to negative, positive to
positive) to avoid damage to the subwoofer. In addition, make sure the audio pins are wired correctly;
polarity reversals for audio signals will affect system
performance.

CHAPTER 3: POWERING MM-10XP SUBWOOFERS WITH THE MPS-488HP
MPS-488HPp Channel Outputs
The MPS-488HPp Channel Outputs use Phoenix 5-pin male
connectors with three pins for balanced audio (positive, negative, and shield) and two for DC Power (positive and negative). These pins are clearly labeled on the MPS-488HPp rear
panel.
■
Idle Current — The maximum rms current during idle
periods.
■
Maximum Long-Term Continuous Current — The
maximum rms current during a period of at least 10 seconds. The Maximum Long-Term Continuous Current is
used to calculate temperature increases for cables, to
ensure that cable sizes and gauges conform to electrical
code standards. This current rating is also used as a rating for slow-reacting thermal breakers.
■
Burst Current — The maximum rms current during a
period of around one second. The Burst Current is used
as a rating for magnetic breakers. It is also used for calculating the peak voltage drop in long AC cable runs
according to the following formula:
MPS-488HPp Channel Outputs
Each MPS-488HPp comes with eight Phoenix 5-pin female
cable connectors for assembling loudspeaker cables.
V pk (drop) = I pk x R (cable total)
■
Ultimate Short-Term Peak Current — A rating for fastreacting magnetic breakers.
MPS-488HPe Channel Outputs
■
The MPS-488HPe Channel Outputs use EN3 5-pin female
connectors with three pins for balanced audio (positive,
negative, and shield) and two for DC Power (positive and
negative). These pins are clearly labeled on the
MPS-488HPe rear panel.
Inrush Current — The spike of initial current encountered when powering on.
You can use the following table as a guide for selecting

MPS-488HP CURRENT DRAW
The current draw for the MPS-488HP and its connected
loudspeakers is dynamic and fluctuates as operating levels
change. Since different cables and circuit breakers heat up
at varying rates, it is important to understand the following
types of current ratings and how they affect circuit breaker
and cable specifications.
16
The minimum electrical service amperage required by an
MPS-488HP is the sum of the Maximum Long-Term Continuous Current for all MM-10XPs connected to the MPS-488HP.
An additional 30 percent above the minimum amperage is recommended to prevent peak voltage drops at the service entry.
NOTE: For best performance, the AC cable
voltage drop should not exceed 10 V, or
10 percent at 115 V and 5 percent at 230 V. Make
sure that even with AC voltage drops that the AC
voltage always remains within the operating window.
MM-10 OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
SAFETY ISSUES
Pay close attention to these important electrical and safety
issues.
■
The MPS-488HP requires a grounded outlet.
CONNECTING MM-10XP SUBWOOFERS TO
THE MPS-488HP
To connect MM-10XP subwoofers to the MPS-488HP:
1. Power off the MPS-488HP.
2. Connect audio sources (from a mixer or processor) to
the MPS-488HP Channel Inputs. Use balanced XLR
cables.
Earth ground
3. Use the MPS-488HP Link switches to route Channel
Inputs to the desired Channel Outputs (see “Link
Switches” on page 14).
Chassis ground
4. Connect the MM-10XP subwoofers to the MPS-488HP
Channel Outputs. Use composite cables (such as
Belden 1502) wired for both DC power and balanced
audio and outfitted with the appropriate connectors.
■
■
Do not use a ground-lifting adapter or cut the AC cable
ground pin.
■
Keep all liquids away from the MPS-488HP to avoid hazards from electrical shock.
■
Do not operate the unit if the power cables are frayed or
broken.
When connecting MM-10XP subwoofers equipped with
Phoenix connectors to the MPS-488HPp power supply,
use Phoenix 5-pin male to Phoenix 5-pin female cables.
TIP: You can use two separate cables for
MM-10XP subwoofer connections: a 2-conductor cable for DC power and a 3-conductor cable for
balanced audio, both attached to a single Phoenix
connector on each cable end. This allows you to use
17
CHAPTER 3: POWERING MM-10XP SUBWOOFERS WITH THE MPS-488HP
a larger gauge for the DC cable so you can achieve
longer cable runs (see “Cable Lengths and Cable
Gauges for MM-10XPs” on page 11).
■
When connecting MM-10XP subwoofers equipped with
EN3 connectors to the MPS-488HPe power supply, use
EN3 5-pin male to EN3 5-pin female cables.
5. Power on the MPS-488HP and monitor the LEDs on its
front panel to verify the connections (see “Voltage and
Load Current LEDs (1–8)” on page 13).
6. Check the LEDs on the MM-10XP rear panels and verify
they are green (ready to reproduce audio).
7. Enable output from the audio sources (from the mixer or
processor) connected to the MPS-488HP.
POWERING MM-10XP SUBWOOFERS WITH
THE ORIGINAL MPS-488
The original MPS-488 was designed for use with the
MM-4XP miniature loudspeaker. While the MPS-488 can
power up to eight MM-4XPs, it can only power up to four
MM-10XPs (due to the MM-10XP’s higher power requirements and current draw).

■
To join two EN3 cables, one with an EN3 5-pin male
cable mount connector to one with an EN3 5-pin female
cable mount connector, use an EN3 5-pin female-tomale cable coupler (PN 28.163.033.01).
CAUTION: Make sure MM-10XP loudspeaker
cables are wired correctly. For details on
assembling loudspeaker cables, see Appendix C,
“Phoenix and EN3 Cable Assembly.”
!
18
Because the MPS-488 can power a maximum of four
MM-10XPs, the MM-10XPs should only be connected to
channel outputs 1, 3, 5, and 7. Do not use the even-numbered channel outputs.
CHAPTER 4: THE MM-10AC SUBWOOFER
The MM-10AC subwoofer includes an internal power supply
and locking AC PowerCon connectors. The MM-10AC
receives audio from an XLR female Audio In connector, and
also includes an XLR male Audio Loop Out connector for
daisy-chaining audio signals.
AC Input Connector (Blue)
The blue AC Input connector supplies power to the
MM-10AC. The input is rated at 20 amps and uses a
PowerCon3 AC mains locking connector that prevents accidental disconnections. A 10-foot AC power cable, rated at
15 amps, is included with each MM-10AC. If you replace the
included AC power cable, make sure to use a cable with the
appropriate power plug (on the other end) for the region in
which you will operate the unit.
The AC Input connector also supplies power to any additional subwoofers connected to the MM-10AC’s gray AC
Loop Output connector. Each MM-10AC requires approximately 0.9 A rms maximum at 115 V AC and 0.4 A rms maximum at 230 V AC.
CAUTION: When using the included AC power
cable, do not loop more than 15 additional
MM-10ACs from the AC Loop Output connector at
115 V (16 total for the circuit), and not more than 36
at 230 V (37 total for the circuit).

THE MM-10AC AC CONNECTORS
The MM-10AC subwoofer combines advanced loudspeaker
technology with equally advanced power capabilities.
Understanding voltage and current requirements, as well as
electrical safety issues, is critical to the safe operation of the
MM-10AC. The MM-10AC rear user panel includes the following PowerCon AC connectors:
The gray AC Loop Output connector allows multiple
MM-10AC subwoofers to be looped and powered from a
single power source. Connect the AC Loop Output of the
first MM-10AC to the AC Input of the second MM-10AC,
and so forth. The AC Loop Output uses a PowerCon3 AC
mains locking connector that prevents accidental disconnections.
The maximum number of subwoofers that can be looped
from the AC Loop Output connector is determined by the
voltage of the power source, the current draw of the looped
subwoofers, the circuit breaker rating, and the rating of the
AC power cable connected to the MM-10AC.

CHAPTER 4: THE MM-10AC SUBWOOFER
Each MM-10AC ships with one AC looping connector for
making AC looping cables. Assembled AC looping cables
are available from Meyer Sound.
CAUTION: Do not exceed the current capability of the 20-amp Input connector for the
MM-10AC. When looping MM-10ACs, consider the
total current draw for all units on the circuit, including
the first.

POWER CONNECTOR WIRING
MM-10AC VOLTAGE REQUIREMENTS
The MM-10AC operates safely and continuously when the
AC voltage stays within 100–240 V AC at 50 or 60 Hz. The
subwoofer allows any combination of voltage to GND (neutral-line-ground or line-line-ground).
If the voltage drops below 90 V (brownout), the MM-10AC
uses stored power to continue operating temporarily; the
subwoofer will shut down if the voltage does not rise above
the low boundary before the stored power is used.
If the voltage rises above 264 V, the power supply could
become damaged.
The MM-10AC requires a grounded outlet. To operate safely
and effectively, it is extremely important that the entire system be properly grounded.
CAUTION: The power source for the
MM-10AC should always operate within the
required voltage range, at least a few volts from the
upper and lower ranges. This will ensure that AC voltage variations from the service entry — or peak voltage drops due to cable runs — will not cause the
subwoofer’s amplifiers to cycle on and off or cause
damage to the power supply.

MM-10AC CURRENT DRAW REQUIREMENTS
The current draw for the MM-10AC is dynamic and fluctuates as operating levels change. Since different cables and
circuit breakers heat up at varying rates, it is important to
understand the following types of current ratings and how
they affect circuit breaker and cable specifications.
■
Idle Current — The maximum rms current during idle
periods.
■
Maximum Long-Term Continuous Current — The
maximum rms current during a period of at least 10 seconds. The Maximum Long-Term Continuous Current is
used to calculate temperature increases for cables, to
ensure that cable sizes and gauges conform to electrical
code standards. The current rating is also used as a rating for slow-reacting thermal breakers.
■
Burst Current — The maximum rms current during a
period of around one second. The Burst Current is used
as a rating for magnetic breakers. It is also used for calculating the peak voltage drop in long AC cable runs
according to the following formula:
V pk (drop) = I pk x R (cable total)
The Burst Current can also be used to calculate the AC
looping capability of the MM-10AC.

Make sure the AC power cable for the MM-10AC has the
appropriate power plug (on the other end) for the area in
which you will operate the unit. In addition, the AC power
cable must be rated for the total current draw of all
MM-10ACs looped from the power source.
■
Do not operate the unit if the power cable is frayed or
broken.

30 percent above the minimum amperage is recommended
to prevent peak voltage drops at the service entry.
NOTE: For the best performance, the AC cable
voltage drop should not exceed 10 V, or
10 percent at 115 V and 5 percent at 230 V. Make
sure that even with AC voltage drops that the AC
voltage always remains within the operating window.
THE MM-10AC AUDIO CONNECTORS
The MM-10AC includes an XLR female Audio In connector
and XLR male Audio Loop Out connector.
ELECTRICAL SAFETY ISSUES
Pay close attention to these important electrical and safety
issues.
■
The MM-10AC requires a grounded outlet. Always use a
grounded outlet and plug.
MM-10AC Audio In and Audio Loop Out Connectors
Earth ground
Audio In Connector
The XLR female Audio In connector accepts balanced audio
signals with an input impedance of 10 kOhm. The connector
uses the following wiring:
Chassis ground
■
Pin 1 — 220 kOhm to chassis and earth ground (ESD
clamped)
■
Pin 2 — Signal (+)
21
CHAPTER 4: THE MM-10AC SUBWOOFER
■
Pin 3 — Signal (–)
■
Case — Earth (AC) ground and chassis
Pins 2 and 3 carry the input as a differential signal. Pin 1 is
connected to earth through a 220 kOhm, 1000 pF, 15 V
clamped network. This circuitry provides virtual ground lift
for audio frequencies while allowing unwanted signals to
bleed to ground. Make sure to use standard, balanced XLR
audio cables with all three pins connected on both ends.
Telescopic grounding is not recommended, and shorting an
input connector pin to the case may cause a ground loop,
resulting in hum.
TIP: If unwanted noise or hiss is produced by
the subwoofer, disconnect its input cable. If the
noise stops, there is most likely nothing wrong with
the subwoofer. To locate the source of the noise,
check the audio cable, source audio, and AC power.
Audio Loop Out Connector
The XLR male Audio Loop Out connector allows multiple
MM-10AC subwoofers to be looped from a single audio
source. For applications that require multiple MM-10ACs,
connect the Audio Loop Out of the first unit to the Audio In
of the second, and so forth.
NOTE: The order in which subwoofers are connected when looping audio signals is unimportant. The Audio Loop Out connector is wired in
parallel to the Audio In connector and transmits the
unbuffered source signal even when the MM-10AC is
powered off.
To avoid distortion when looping multiple MM-10ACs, make
sure the source device can drive the total load impedance of
the looped subwoofers. In addition, the source device must
be capable of delivering approximately 20 dBV (10 V rms
into 600 ohms) to yield the maximum peak SPL over the
entire operating bandwidth of the subwoofers. Most professional audio equipment can transmit these source levels.
NOTE: Most source devices are capable of
driving loads no smaller than 10 times their
output impedance.
CAUTION: Make sure that all cabling for
looped subwoofers is wired correctly (Pin 1 to
Pin 1, Pin 2 to Pin 2, and so forth) to prevent the
polarity from being reversed. If one or more subwoofers in a system have reversed polarity, frequency
response and coverage will be significantly
degraded.
!
THE MM-10AC INPUT POLARITY SWITCH
The Input Polarity switch swaps the polarity of the audio
source signal, which is sometimes necessary to acoustically
align the subwoofer with other loudspeakers in the system.
When the switch is in the up (+), non-inverting position, pin 2
is hot relative to pin 3, resulting in a positive pressure wave
when a positive signal is applied to pin 2. When the switch is
in the down (–), inverting position, pin 3 is hot relative to
pin 2, resulting in a positive pressure wave when a positive
signal is applied to pin 3.
MM-10AC Input Polarity Switch
NOTE: The Input Polarity switch only affects
the subwoofer signal. It has no effect on the
Audio Loop Out signal.
THE MM-10AC LIMIT LED
The MM-10AC has a three-color Limit LED on its rear panel
that changes color to indicate the subwoofer’s status.
To calculate the load impedance for the looped subwoofers,
divide 10 kOhms (the input impedance for a single
MM-10AC) by the number of looped subwoofers. For example, the load impedance for 10 MM-10AC subwoofers is
1000 ohms (10 kOhms / 10). To drive this number of looped
subwoofers, the source device should have an output
impedance of 100 ohms or less. This same rule applies
when looping MM-10AC subwoofers with other self-powered Meyer Sound loudspeakers.
MM-10AC Limit LED
22
MM-10 OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Powering On (Green)
When powering up the MM-10AC subwoofer, the following
startup events occur and are indicated by the Limit LED:
tem to achieve the desired SPL without exposing the
subwoofers to excessive levels and possible overheating.
1. The LED flashes green and then yellow during power up.
2. The LED turns solid green indicating the subwoofer is
ready to reproduce audio.
CAUTION: If the Limit LED turns red and stays
solid red after powering up and the audio is
muted, the subwoofer has encountered a failure and
may need to be serviced. Contact Meyer Sound
Technical Support.
!
CAUTION: If the Limit LED turns solid red and
the MM-10AC continues to output audio,
though at reduced levels, the subwoofer’s voltage
may have dropped below 90 V AC. When these conditions are encountered, operation of the subwoofer
should cease and its power supply and cabling
should be verified.
!
MM-10AC Temperature and Limiting
The Limit LED turns solid yellow when its heat sink temperature reaches 65° C (145° F), indicating the unit is reaching its
maximum heat dissipation and a reduction in SPL is recommended. While the MM-10AC will continue to operate while
the LED is yellow, the limiter threshold is lowered to a safe
level (causing the output level to be lowered by 6 dB) to prevent the subwoofer from overheating. When the temperature
of the heat sink cools to 50°C (122°F), the LED changes
from yellow to green and the limiter threshold returns to normal.
Clipping (Red)
The Limit LED flashes red when its input signal causes the
amplifier to overload. If the LED flashes red continuously, the
subwoofer is severely overloaded and a reduction in the
input level is recommended.
Limiting (Yellow)
Limiting activity is indicated when the Limit LED turns yellow. When engaged, the limiter protects the subwoofer’s
driver and prevents signal peaks from causing excessive
distortion in the subwoofer’s amplifier, thereby preserving
headroom and maintaining smooth frequency responses at
high levels. When the level returns to normal, below the limiter’s threshold, the LED turns green and limiting ceases.
CAUTION: If the Limit LED turns solid red and
the subwoofer continues to output audio,
though at reduced levels, the subwoofer’s voltage
may have dropped below 90 V AC. When these conditions are encountered, operation of the subwoofer
should cease and its power supply and cabling
should be verified.
!
The MM-10AC performs within its acoustical specifications
at normal temperatures when the Limit LED is green, or if the
LED turns yellow for two seconds or less and then returns to
green for at least one second. If the LED remains yellow for
longer than three seconds, the subwoofer enters hard limiting where:
■
Increases to the input level have no effect.
■
Distortion increases due to clipping and nonlinear driver
operation.
■
The drivers are subjected to excessive heat and excursion, which will compromise their life span and may
eventually lead to damage over time.
CAUTION: The Limit LED turns yellow when
the subwoofer’s signal rises 2 dB above the
limiting threshold, and indicates a safe, optimum level
has been exceeded. If the MM-10AC subwoofers in a
system begin to limit before reaching the desired
SPL, consider adding more subwoofers to the sys-

CHAPTER 5: THE MM-10ACX SUBWOOFER
The MM-10ACX subwoofer includes onboard DC power and
audio routing for driving satellite loudspeakers: up to two
MM-4XPs, or a single UP-4XP (due to its higher power
requirements and current draw). Three independent XLR
female Audio In connectors are provided for the subwoofer
and satellite loudspeakers. Satellite Out connectors are
available as either Phoenix 5-pin male or EN3 5-pin female.
The MM-10ACX also includes locking AC PowerCon connectors.
THE MM-10ACX AC CONNECTORS
The MM-10ACX subwoofer combines advanced loudspeaker technology with equally advanced power capabilities. Understanding voltage and current requirements, as
well as electrical safety issues, is critical to the safe operation of the MM-10ACX. The MM-10ACX rear user panel
includes the following PowerCon AC connectors:
MM-10ACX AC Input (Left) and AC Loop Output (Right) Connectors
AC Input Connector (Blue)
The blue AC Input connector supplies power to the
MM-10ACX. The input is rated at 20 amps and uses a
PowerCon3 AC mains locking connector that prevents accidental disconnections. A 10-foot AC power cable, rated at
15 amps, is included with each MM-10ACX. If you replace
the included AC power cable, make sure to use a cable with
the appropriate power plug (on the other end) for the region
in which you will operate the unit.
MM-10ACX Rear Panel, Shown with Phoenix Satellite Connectors
The MM-10ACX is extremely versatile. It can be used as a
standalone subwoofer or it can be connected to and used
with satellite loudspeakers in several different configurations. For more information, see “MM-10ACX Satellite Configurations” on page 32.
The AC Input connector also supplies power to any additional subwoofers connected to the MM-10ACX’s gray AC
Loop Output connector, as well as any loudspeakers connected to the Satellite Out connectors. Each MM-10ACX
requires approximately 3 A rms maximum at 115 V AC and
1.5 A rms maximum at 230 V AC.
CAUTION: When using the included AC power
cable, do not loop more than five additional
MM-10ACXs from the AC Loop Output connector at
115 V (six total for the circuit), and not more than 10
at 230 V (11 total for the circuit).

CHAPTER 5: THE MM-10ACX SUBWOOFER
AC Loop Output Connector (Gray)
POWER CONNECTOR WIRING
The gray AC Loop Output connector allows multiple
MM-10ACX subwoofers to be looped and powered from a
single power source. Connect the AC Loop Output of the
first MM-10ACX to the AC Input of the second MM-10ACX,
and so forth. The AC Loop Output uses a PowerCon3 AC
mains locking connector that prevents accidental disconnections.
The MM-10ACX requires a grounded outlet. To operate
safely and effectively, it is extremely important that the
entire system be properly grounded.
Blue = neutral
Brown = hot
The maximum number of subwoofers that can be looped
from the AC Loop Output connector is determined by the
voltage of the power source, the current draw of the looped
subwoofers and any connected satellite loudspeakers, the
circuit breaker rating, and the rating of the AC power cable
connected to the MM-10ACX.

NOTE: The current draw for the MM-10ACX is
dynamic and fluctuates as operating levels
change. The numbers in Table 5 assume that operating levels are normal and not such that the subwoofers and satellite loudspeakers are constantly limiting.
Each MM-10ACX ships with one AC looping connector for
making AC looping cables. Assembled AC looping cables
are available from Meyer Sound.
CAUTION: Do not exceed the current capability of the 20-amp Input connector for the
MM-10ACX. When looping MM-10ACXs, consider
the total current draw for all subwoofers and satellite
loudspeakers on the circuit.

AC Cable Wiring Scheme
When wiring international or special-purpose power connectors:
■
Connect the blue wire to the black terminal, or the terminal marked with an N.
■
Connect the brown wire to the red terminal, or the terminal marked with an L.
■
Connect the yellow and green wire to the green (or green
and yellow) terminal, or the terminal marked with an E.
CAUTION: When creating AC power cables, it
is important to preserve AC line polarity and
connect the earth ground on both ends of the cable.
The MM-10ACX requires a grounded connection.
Always use a grounded outlet and plug. It is
extremely important that the system be properly
grounded to operate safely and properly. Do not
ground-lift the AC cable.
!
MM-10ACX VOLTAGE REQUIREMENTS
The MM-10ACX operates safely and continuously when the
AC voltage stays within 100–240 V AC at 50 or 60 Hz. The
subwoofer allows any combination of voltage to GND (neutral-line-ground or line-line-ground).
If the voltage drops below 90 V (brownout), the MM-10ACX
uses stored power to continue operating temporarily; the
subwoofer will shut down if the voltage does not rise above
the low boundary before the stored power is used.
If the voltage rises above 264 V, the power supply could
become damaged.
26
MM-10 OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
CAUTION: The power source for the
MM-10ACX should always operate within the
required voltage range, at least a few volts from the
upper and lower ranges. This will ensure that AC voltage variations from the service entry — or peak voltage drops due to cable runs — will not cause the
subwoofer’s amplifiers to cycle on and off or cause
damage to the power supply.
!
MM-10ACX CURRENT DRAW
REQUIREMENTS
The current draw for the MM-10ACX is dynamic and fluctuates as operating levels change. Since different cables and
circuit breakers heat up at varying rates, it is important to
understand the following types of current ratings and how
they affect circuit breaker and cable specifications.
■
■
■
Idle Current — The maximum rms current during idle
periods.
Maximum Long-Term Continuous Current — The
maximum rms current during a period of at least 10 seconds. The Maximum Long-Term Continuous Current is
used to calculate temperature increases for cables, to
ensure that cable sizes and gauges conform to electrical
code standards. The current rating is also used as a rating for slow-reacting thermal breakers. In addition, the
Maximum Long-Term Continuous Current can be used
to calculate the AC looping capability of the MM-10ACX.
Burst Current — The maximum rms current during a
period of around one second. The Burst Current is used
as a rating for magnetic breakers. It is also used for calculating the peak voltage drop in long AC cable runs
according to the following formula:
V pk (drop) = I pk x R (cable total)
The Burst Current can also be used to calculate the AC
looping capability of the MM-10ACX.
■
Ultimate Short-Term Peak Current — A rating for fastreacting magnetic breakers.
■
Inrush Current — The spike of initial current encountered when powering on.
You can use the following tables as a guide for selecting
cable gauges and circuit breaker ratings for the system’s
operating voltage.

The minimum electrical service amperage required by an
MM-10ACX subwoofer system is the sum of the Maximum
Long-Term Continuous Current for each unit. An additional
30 percent above the minimum amperage is recommended
to prevent peak voltage drops at the service entry.
NOTE: For the best performance, the AC cable
voltage drop should not exceed 10 V, or
10 percent at 115 V and 5 percent at 230 V. Make
sure that even with AC voltage drops that the AC
voltage always remains within the operating window.

ELECTRICAL SAFETY ISSUES
THE MM-10ACX AUDIO IN CONNECTORS
Pay close attention to these important electrical and safety
issues.
The MM-10ACX includes three XLR female Audio In connectors for Satellite 1, Satellite 2, and Subwoofer.
■
The MM-10ACX requires a grounded outlet. Always use
a grounded outlet and plug.
Earth ground
MM-10ACX Audio In Connectors: Satellite 1, Satellite 2, and Subwoofer
Chassis ground
■
■
Do not use a ground-lifting adapter or cut the AC cable
ground pin.
Do not exceed the current capability of the 20-amp AC
Input connector for the MM-10ACX. When looping
MM-10ACXs, consider the total current draw for all units
on the circuit, including the first.
■
Make sure the AC power cable for the MM-10ACX has
the appropriate power plug (on the other end) for the
area in which you will operate the unit. In addition, the
AC power cable must be rated for the total current draw
of all MM-10ACXs looped from the power source.
■
Do not operate the unit if the power cable is frayed or
broken.
■
Keep all liquids away from the MM-10ACX to avoid hazards from electrical shock.
28
The XLR female Audio In connectors accept balanced audio
signals with an input impedance of 10 kOhm. The connectors use the following wiring:
■
Pin 1 — 220 kOhm to chassis and earth ground (ESD
clamped)
■
Pin 2 — Signal (+)
■
Pin 3 — Signal (–)
■
Case — Earth (AC) ground and chassis
Pins 2 and 3 carry the input as a differential signal. Pin 1 is
connected to earth through a 220 kOhm, 1000 pF, 15 V
clamped network. This circuitry provides virtual ground lift
for audio frequencies while allowing unwanted signals to
bleed to ground. Make sure to use standard, balanced XLR
audio cables with all three pins connected on both ends.
Telescopic grounding is not recommended, and shorting an
input connector pin to the case may cause a ground loop,
resulting in hum.
TIP: If unwanted noise or hiss is produced by
the subwoofer, disconnect its input cable. If the
noise stops, there is most likely nothing wrong with
the subwoofer. To locate the source of the noise,
check the audio cable, source audio, and AC power.
MM-10 OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
THE MM-10ACX SATELLITE OUT
CONNECTORS
The Satellite Out connectors deliver DC power (48 V DC)
and balanced audio to satellite loudspeakers: up to two
MM-4XPs, or a single UP-4XP (due to its higher power
requirements and current draw). The source audio for the
satellite loudspeakers is received from the MM-10ACX’s
Audio 1 In and Audio 2 In connectors. The DC power for the
satellite loudspeakers is generated by the MM-10ACX’s
onboard DC power capabilities.
EN3 Outputs
The MM-10ACX Satellite Outs are available as EN3 5-pin
female connectors with three pins for balanced audio (positive, negative, and shield) and two pins for DC Power (positive and negative). These pins are clearly labeled on the
MM-10ACX rear panel. A single composite cable (such as
Belden 1502) wired for both DC power and balanced audio
can be used to connect to each satellite loudspeaker.
The Satellite Outs can be equipped with either Phoenix 5pin male connectors or EN3 5-pin female connectors.
CAUTION: When wiring cable connections for
the Satellite Outs, it is extremely important that
each pin in the connector is wired correctly. Make
sure the 48 V DC from the MM-10ACX is wired
directly (and only) to the 48 V DC pins on the connector for the satellite loudspeaker, and that the polarity
is observed (negative to negative, positive to positive)
to avoid damage to the loudspeaker. In addition,
make sure the audio pins are wired correctly; polarity
reversals for audio signals can affect system performance.
!
Phoenix Outputs
The MM-10ACX Satellite Outs are available as Phoenix 5pin male connectors with three pins for balanced audio
(positive, negative, and shield) and two pins for DC Power
(positive and negative). These pins are clearly labeled on the
MM-10ACX rear panel. A single composite cable (such as
Belden 1502) wired for both DC power and balanced audio
can be used to connect to each satellite loudspeaker.
MM-10ACX Satellite Outs, EN3
When equipped with EN3 Satellite Outs, the MM-10ACX
comes with EN3 5-pin male cable connectors for assembling loudspeaker cables. For information on cable requirements for the satellite loudspeaker, refer to its operating
instructions. For information on cables and cable accessories available from Meyer Sound, see Appendix A, “MM-10
Accessories.” For information on cable assembly, see
Appendix C, “Phoenix and EN3 Cable Assembly.”
THE MM-10ACX INPUT SELECT SWITCH
The Input Select switch determines the audio source signal
for the subwoofer. When the switch is in the down position
(SUB CH), the source signal is received from the Subwoofer
Audio In connector. When the switch is in the up position
(SUM CH 1 + 2), the source signal is received from the
Satellite 1 and Satellite 2 Audio In connectors and is
summed.
MM-10ACX Satellite Outs, Phoenix
When equipped with Phoenix Satellite Outs, the MM-10ACX
comes with Phoenix 5-pin female cable connectors for
assembling loudspeaker cables. For information on cable
requirements for the satellite loudspeaker, refer to its operating instructions. For information on cables and cable
accessories available from Meyer Sound, see Appendix A,
“MM-10 Accessories.” For information on cable assembly,
see Appendix C, “Phoenix and EN3 Cable Assembly.”
MM-10ACX Input Select Switch
29
CHAPTER 5: THE MM-10ACX SUBWOOFER
NOTE: The Input Select switch is only included
on the MM-10ACX model. The switch only
affects the subwoofer signal and has no effect on the
Satellite Outs.
The Input Select Switch and Summing
When the Input Select switch is in the up position (SUM
CH 1 + 2), the source signal that is routed to the subwoofer
from the Satellite Audio Ins is attenuated.
■
If audio signals are present at both Satellite Audio Ins,
the signal is summed and attenuated by 6 dB, resulting
in a net gain of 0 dB.
■
If only a single audio signal is present at one of the Satellite Audio Ins, the signal is also attenuated by 6 dB. But
this time the result is a net gain of -6 dB.
THE MM-10ACX GAIN KNOB
The Gain knob adjust the subwoofer signal from completely
attenuated to +10 dB and can be used to the balanced the
subwoofer output with that of the satellite loudspeakers.
The Gain knob is always active, regardless of the Input
Select switch setting.
THE MM-10ACX INPUT POLARITY SWITCH
The Input Polarity switch swaps the polarity of the audio
source signal, which is sometimes necessary to acoustically
align the subwoofer with other loudspeakers in the system.
When the switch is in the up (+) position, pin 2 is hot relative
to pin 3, resulting in a positive pressure wave when a positive signal is applied to pin 2. When the switch is in the
down (–) position, pin 3 is hot relative to pin 2, resulting in a
positive pressure wave when a positive signal is applied to
pin 3.
MM-10ACX Input Polarity Switch
NOTE: The Input Polarity switch only affects
the subwoofer signal. It has no effect on the
Satellite Outs.
THE MM-10ACX LIMIT LED
The MM-10ACX has a three-color Limit LED on its rear panel
that changes color to indicate the subwoofer’s status.
MM-10ACX Gain Knob
NOTE: The Gain knob is only included on the
MM-10ACX model. The knob only affects the
subwoofer signal and has no effect on the Satellite
Outs.
MM-10ACX Limit LED
Powering On (Green)
When powering up the MM-10ACX subwoofer, the following
startup events occur and are indicated by the Limit LED:
1. The LED flashes green and then yellow during power up.
2. The LED turns solid green indicating the subwoofer is
ready to reproduce audio.
30
MM-10 OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
CAUTION: If the Limit LED turns red and stays
solid red after powering up and the audio is
muted, the subwoofer has encountered a failure and
may need to be serviced. Contact Meyer Sound
Technical Support.
!
CAUTION: If the Limit LED turns solid red and
the MM-10ACX continues to output audio,
though at reduced levels, the subwoofer’s voltage
may have dropped below 90 V AC. When these conditions are encountered, operation of the subwoofer
should cease and its power supply and cabling
should be verified.
!
MM-10ACX Temperature and Limiting
The Limit LED turns solid yellow when its heat sink temperature reaches 65° C (145° F), indicating the unit is reaching its
maximum heat dissipation and a reduction in SPL is recommended. While the MM-10ACX will continue to operate
while the LED is yellow, the limiter threshold is lowered to a
safe level (causing the output level to be lowered by 6 dB) to
prevent the subwoofer from overheating. When the temperature of the heat sink cools to 50°C (122°F), the LED
changes from yellow to green and the limiter threshold
returns to normal.
Clipping (Red)
Limiting (Yellow)
Limiting activity is indicated when the Limit LED turns yellow. When engaged, the limiter protects the subwoofer’s
driver and prevents signal peaks from causing excessive
distortion in the subwoofer’s amplifier, thereby preserving
headroom and maintaining smooth frequency responses at
high levels. When the level returns to normal, below the limiter’s threshold, the LED turns green and limiting ceases.
The MM-10ACX performs within its acoustical specifications
at normal temperatures when the Limit LED is green, or if the
LED turns yellow for two seconds or less and then returns to
green for at least one second. If the LED remains yellow for
longer than three seconds, the subwoofer enters hard limiting where:
■
Increases to the input level have no effect.
■
Distortion increases due to clipping and nonlinear driver
operation.
■
The drivers are subjected to excessive heat and excursion, which will compromise their life span and may
eventually lead to damage over time.
The Limit LED flashes red when its input signal causes the
amplifier to overload. If the LED flashes red continuously, the
subwoofer is severely overloaded and a reduction in the
input level is recommended.
CAUTION: If the Limit LED turns solid red and
the subwoofer continues to output audio,
though at reduced levels, the subwoofer’s voltage
may have dropped below 90 V AC. When these conditions are encountered, operation of the subwoofer
should cease and its power supply and cabling
should be verified.
!
CAUTION: The Limit LED turns yellow when
the subwoofer’s signal rises 2 dB above the
limiting threshold, and indicates a safe, optimum level
has been exceeded. If the MM-10ACX subwoofers in
a system begin to limit before reaching the desired
SPL, consider adding more subwoofers to the system to achieve the desired SPL without exposing the
subwoofers to excessive levels and possible overheating.

APPENDIX B: OPTIONAL RAIN HOODS
A weather-protected version of the MM-10 subwoofer is available with rain hood kits that safeguard the subwoofer’s electronics from the elements in fixed, outdoor installations. The
rain hood is available in both horizontal (PN 40.174.015.01)
and vertical (PN 40.174.015.02) versions. The rain hood is
made of a durable, high-impact polycarbonate that is also
transparent, allowing the subwoofer's connections and LEDs
to be visible.

INSTALLING THE HORIZONTAL RAIN HOOD
To install the MM-10 horizontal rain hood:
1. Orient the MM-10 horizontally with its user panel to the
left.
1. Attach any required cables to the subwoofer.
2. If the rain hood’s gasket material is not attached, firmly
attach it to the rain hood’s inner edges. Do not attach the
gasket directly to the user panel.
3. Attach the rain hood by slipping it under the flange at the
top of the loudspeaker, placing it flush against the user
panel. Align the rain hood’s holes with those in the panel.

Tilt for Vertically-Oriented, Weather-Protected
MM-10s
When installing vertically-oriented, weather-protected
MM-10s, the units must be mounted at a 0-degree, or
downward, tilt. This ensures that water will not accumulate
in the front of loudspeaker.

APPENDIX C: PHOENIX AND EN3 CABLE ASSEMBLY
ASSEMBLING EN3-TO-EN3 LOUDSPEAKER CABLES
When connecting MM-10XP loudspeakers equipped with EN3 connectors to the MPS-488HPe power supply, you need an
EN3 5-pin female to EN3 5-pin male cable. The following procedure documents how to assemble this cable. If you are starting with an EN3-to-pigtail cable (included with the MM-10XP), you can skip step 5 in this procedure.
NOTE: Cable mount connectors cannot connect to other cable mount connectors. Cable mount connectors
can only connect to panel mount connectors (like those on the MM-10XP and MPS-488HPe) or inline connectors. To extend cables with EN3 connectors on both ends you can use an EN3 5-pin female-to-male cable coupler.
Assembled EN3-to-EN3 Cable
To assemble an EN3-to-EN3 loudspeaker cable:
1. Disassemble the EN3 5-pin male connector and feed one end of the cable through the boot, cable clamp housing, and
coupling ring.
