Building on the foundation of the Com-Tech ®
Series, the Crown® CTs Series offers new flexibility and value for installed sound. The ComTech Series was the first to offer independent
selection of high- and low-impedance operation for a specific channel, and CTs Series
amplifiers continue that tradition, with power
levels and features carefully chosen to perfectly
integrate into fixed install design requirements.
Modern power amplifiers are sophisticated
pieces of engineering capable of producing
extremely high power levels. They must be
treated with respect and correctly installed if
they are to provide the many years of reliable
service for which they were designed.
•
Direct constant-voltage
(70V/100V/140V/200V) or low-impedance
(2/4/8 ohm) operation. No switch
required.
•
Input sensitivity is independently selectable for each channel. Choose low-impedance (4/8 ohm), constant-voltage (70V/
100V/140V/200V), or 26 dB.
•
TLC protection circuitry protects the
amplifier from long-term excessive heat by
subtly and dynamically reducing the gain
only when necessary.
•
JTS circuitry (CTs 600/1200 only) quickly
protects BJT output transistors from
unsafe operating conditions without shutting the channel down. (Not applicable to
BCA amplifiers as they are inherently protected.)
Please take the time to study this manual so
that you can obtain the best possible service
from your amplifier.
•
P I P 2 ™ (Programmable Input Processor)
connector accepts accessory modules that
tailor the amplifier to suit specific applications.
1.1 Features
• Switching Power Supply for reduced
weight.
•
Removable terminal block input connectors, with “Y” Input Switch in the standard
PIP2-BBY module.
In addition, CTs Series amplifiers include a
number of features which require some explanation before they can be used to their maximum advantage.
•
High power-density, with all two-channel
models in a 2U chassis.

3.7 Connect to AC Mains
On the back panel, check whether your amplifier is labeled
for 120V or 220-240V AC mains. Connect your amplifier
to the corresponding AC mains power source (power outlet) with the supplied AC power cordset. First, connect the
IEC end of the cordset to the IEC connector on the amplifier. Then, with the amplifier in the OFF position, plug the
other end of the cordset into the AC mains.
WARNING: The third prong of this connector
(ground) is an important safety feature. Do not
attempt to disable this ground connection by
using an adapter or other methods.
Amplifiers don’t create energy. The AC mains voltage and
current must be sufficient to deliver the power you expect.
Check the amplifier’s back-panel label which specifies the
required AC mains voltage and frequency. The AC mains
voltage must be no more than 15% above the required
voltage, and no less than 25% below the required voltage.
The AC mains frequency must be within the required frequency range. If you are unsure of the output voltage of
your AC mains, please consult your electrician.
3.8 Startup Procedure

sources and controlling the output level. The load you
save may be your own!
3. Do not short the ground lead of an output cable to the
input signal ground. This may form a ground loop
and cause oscillations.
4. Never connect the output to a power supply,
battery or power main. Electrical shock may
result.
2. Turn down the level controls of the amplifier.
5. Tampering with the circuitry, or making unauthorized
circuit changes may be hazardous and invalidates all
agency listings.
3. Turn on the “Power” switch. The Power indicator
should glow. Wait for the “Ready” LED to illuminate.
6. Do not operate the amplifier with the red Clip LEDs
constantly flashing.
4. Turn up the level of your audio source to an optimum
level.
7. Do not overdrive the mixer, which will cause clipped
signal to be sent to the amplifier. Such signals will be
reproduced with extreme accuracy, and loudspeaker
damage may result.
1. Turn down the level of your audio source.
5. Turn up the Level controls on the amplifier until the
desired loudness or power level is achieved. Verify
that the Signal LED is flashing.
6. Turn down the level of your audio source to its normal
range.
If you ever need to make any wiring or installation
changes, don’t forget to turn off the amplifier and disconnect the power cord.
8. Do not operate the amplifier with less than the rated
load impedance. Due to the amplifier’s output protection, such a configuration may result in premature
clipping and speaker damage.
Remember: Crown is not liable for damage that results
from overdriving other system components.
For help with determining your system’s optimum gain
structure (signal levels) please refer to the Crown Amplifier Application Guide, available online at

letter R.
Sensitivity Switches
Behind the input panel are the Input Sensitivity Switches. One 3-position switch per
channel selects various sensitivity settings. See Section 5.2.4 for details and
diagram.
Q. Mode Switch
This two-position switch is used to select
the amplifier’s mode of operation: Dual or
Bridge Mono.
Dual mode is used for 2/4/8 ohms, for 70V
operation with the CTs 600/1200, and for
70/100V operation with the CTs 2000/
3000.
Bridge mode is used for 4/8/16 ohms, for

5 Advanced Features
and Options
NOTE: For detailed information about
these Crown amplifier features, please
consult the Crown Amplifier Application
Guide, available on the Crown website
at www.crownaudio.com
5.1.3 Fault
The amplifier will light the Fault LED if the
amplifier output stage stops operating. If this
happens, see Section 8 for servicing information.
5.1 Protection Systems
Your Crown amplifier provides extensive protection and diagnostic capabilities, including
thermal level control, fault indicators, highpass filtering, DC protect, AC under/over voltage protection, inrush limiting, and variablespeed fans.
5.1.4 High-Pass Filters
Very low frequency signals contain no useful
musical energy, waste valuable amplifier power
and headroom, and can be damaging to your
speakers. Your Crown amplifier provides highpass filters to remove these signals from each
channel’s output.
5.1.1 Thermal Level Control (TLC)
If the amplifier becomes too hot for safe operation, the light will shine brightly and TLC will
engage the input compressor. By compressing
the input, the amplifier will not generate as
much heat and will have a chance to cool down.
The degree of compression is proportional to
the amount of overheating. This feature allows
the show to go on, rather than having the
amplifier shut down.
On the back panel are two 3-position 3rd-order
high-pass filter switches (one per channel) with
selections of Off, 35Hz and 70 Hz.
5.1.2 Junction Temperature Simulation (JTS) (CTs 600/1200 only)
JTS circuitry simulates the operation of the
amplifier’s output transistors, and compares it
against the transistors known Safe Operation
Area (SOA). If JTS sees that more power is
about to be asked of the output devices than
they are capable of delivering under the present
conditions, JTS immediately limits the drive
level until it falls within the SOA. Limiting is
proportional and kept to an absolute minimumonly what is required to prevent the possibility
of output transistor damage.
This level of protection enables Crown to
increase output transistor utilization while also
greatly increasing amplifier reliability.
Operation Manual
5.1.5 Low-Pass Filters
Gaussian-approximation ultrasonic filters prevent ultrasonic feedback and HF burnout in
drivers. This type of filter preserves transient
reponse better than a Butterworth filter.
5.1.6 AC Under/Over Voltage
Protection
If the AC line voltage drops below 25% or rises
above 15% of the nominal operating voltage of
the amplifier, the amplifier’s power supply turns
off and the blue Power LED flashes. The amplifier will turn back on when the AC line voltage
returns to safe operating levels (within +15% /
-25%).
5.1.7 Circuit Breaker
A circuit breaker located near the IEC power
inlet protects the amplifier from excessive AC
current draw.
5.1.8 DC Output Servo
The output servo circuit protects your drivers
by eliminating DC offset, even in the presence
of very large asymmetrical signals.
5.1.9 Inrush Limiting
A soft-start circuit in the power supply minimizes the amplifier’s current draw during
power-on.
5.1.10 Variable-speed Fans
Two continuously variable speed fans direct the
airflow through the amplifier for cooling.
5.2 Advanced Features
5.2.1 Switching Power Supply
Crown’s Switching Power Supply minimizes
the amplifier’s weight.
Typical non-switching power supplies require
large, heavy transformers in order to produce
the required power at the output stage. These
transformers must be large to operate at 50 to
60 Hz (standard AC supplied by the power
company).
By contrast, switching power supplies can
operate with a much smaller (and lighter) transformer because they first convert the AC up to a
much higher frequency, thereby reducing
waste.
The power supply is voltage-specific, allowing
use in regions using 120V or 240V.
5.2.2 Input Compressor
Prevent input/output overload.
5.2.3 Sleep Circuit
Lowers standby power consumption by shutting down the high-voltage supplies during idle
periods.
NOTE: By default, the sleep circuit is not active
on the CTs 600/1200, but may be activated as a
service option.

5 Advanced Features
and Options
5.2.4 Input Sensitivity Switches
To access the Input Sensitivity Switches, turn off the amplifier and remove the
PIP2-BBY Input Panel. The switches are in the top surface of the cavity behind the
Input Panel. One 3-position switch per channel selects among these settings: CTs
600/1200: 1.4V (8/4 ohms), 26 dB gain, and 1.4V (70V operation). CTs 2000/
3000: 1.4V (8/4 ohms), 26 dB gain, and 1.4V (70V) / 2V (100V). The Specifications
chapter lists the input sensitivity for the 26 dB gain setting.
5.3 Options
T-170V: See Figure 5.3. This is an autoformer that
allows 100V output from the CTs 600/1200, and
allows other amplifiers without direct constant voltage
output to be easily integrated into distributed systems.
TP-170V: See Figure 5.4. This is a rack-mountable
panel with four autoformers as described above.
Figure 5.3 170V
PIP Modules
Versatile PIP (Programmable Input Processor) modules provide flexible expansion features that can be
added to customize the amplifier. PIP modules plug
into the connector inside the back panel of the amplifier. PIP modules are available with features ranging
from error-driven compressor/limiters to crossovers to
IQ control. Your amplifier is a PIP2 amplifier, which
means it can take advantage of the many advanced features found in PIP2 modules. The CTs Series 2-channel models do not accept earlier PIP modules.

5.3.1 Nominal Attenuation Settings
The signal level for each input can be attenuated accurately by
adjusting the 21-step Level Control (see Section 4.3). Figure 5.5
shows the attenuation in dB for each detent. The setting of the
input-sensitivity switch varies the actual attenation as shown.
The accuracy of the attenuation varies with the setting. Expected
tolerances are:
Potentiometer steps 0-6 dB: ± 1 dB
Potentiometer steps 6-12 dB: ± 1.5 dB
Potentiometer steps 12-24 dB: ± 3 dB

Addendum To Operation Manual
Note: This addendum pertains to
Section 3 - Setup
Section 5 - Advanced Features and Options
Section 9 - Service
It is important that you review this addendum before reviewing the Operation
Manual.
Section 3
With reference to the DUAL/MONO mode switch:
Dual mode allows each amplifier channel to operate independently like a stereo amplifier.
Installation is intuitive - input Channel 1 feeds output Channel 1 and input Channel 2 feeds
output Channel 2. To put the amplifier into the Dual mode, turn it off, slide the DUAL/
MONO switch to DUAL, and properly connect the output wiring.
The MONO switch setting is the BRIDGE-MONO mode and is used to drive loads with a
total impedance of at least 4 ohms. For distributed loudspeaker systems, 140 volts (twice the
normal 70- volt output) is produced. To put the amplifier into the Bridge-Mono mode, turn it
off, and slide the DUAL/MONO switch to MONO. Both outputs will receive the signal from
Channel 1 with the output of Channel 2 inverted so it can be bridged with the Channel 1
output. Please note that there is no provision for paralleling the outputs to obtain a
single high-powered 70-volt constant voltage output.
Section 5
Federal Signal will not offer the T- 170V, TP- 170V, or PIP Modules as indicated in Section
5.3 -Options.
Section 9
For any service related issues, please contact Crown Technical Support. Return the unit to

our products. It is important to follow all instructions
shipped with these products. These devices are to be
installed by a qualified electrician in accordance with
the National Electrical Code (NFPA 70), or other
national or local codes, under the direction of the
local authority having jurisdiction.
3-3. ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS.
DANGER
To avoid electrical shock and damage to the
device, do not attempt to connect wires when
power is on.
The selection of the mounting location for the
device, its controls and routing of the wiring is to be
accomplished under the direction of the Facilities
Engineer and the Safety Engineer. In addition, listed
below are some other important safety instructions
and precautions you should follow:
•
Read and understand all instructions before
installing or operating this equipment.
•
Do not connect this unit to the system when
power is on.
•
Speakers connected to this system can produce loud sounds which may cause, in certain
situations, permanent hearing loss. You
should take appropriate precautions such as
wearing hearing protection.
•
After installation, test the Audio Router
sound system to ensure proper operation.
•
Show these instructions to your Safety
Engineer and then file them in a safe place
and refer to them when maintaining and/or
reinstalling the unit.
•
Establish a procedure to routinely check the
sound system for proper activation and
operation.
•
Terminal blocks are supplied on the AR2000-M
for field wiring. Strip 1/2" of insulation from the
wiring leads. Attach the appropriate wires to the
corresponding terminals. Tighten the screws to
insure that the wires are firmly held in place. The
terminals will accept conductor sizes 23 AWG to 13
AWG.
3-4. SIGNAL LINES.
A. The signal lines transfer the tone signals
and verbal messages from the AR2000-M to the
selected zones and their devices. In order to reduce
the possibility of cross talk, hum and static noise
pick-up, the signal lines must be twisted pair,
shielded audio cable. Although the majority of systems use AWG 18 shielded twisted pair audio cables,
the size of the audio cable should be adjusted to
correspond to the level of audio being routed in your
application.
CAUTION
If too small a wire gauge is used, unacceptable signal voltage drop in the signal line will
cause reduced sound output from the remote
signal device. Only use a cable having wire
gauge greater than 22AWG.
Consult the authority having jurisdiction in
your area regarding the proper use and
installation of this product.
B. Federal does not recommend that new or
existing telephone lines be used as signal lines in an
Audio Router system for the following reasons:
3-1. UNPACKING.
After unpacking the unit, examine it for damage
that may have occurred in transit. If equipment has
been damaged, do not attempt to install or operate it.
File a claim immediately with the carrier stating the
extent of the damage. Carefully check all envelopes,
shipping labels and tags before removing or destroying them.
1. Interference from other services or
systems, or interference from the system to other
services.
2. Cross talk, interference or hum induced
by other telephone lines.
3. Extended downtime because of the second
party involvement required to service the lines.
4. The additional cost of installation, interfacing devices and monthly charges as opposed to a
one-time cost of performing the installation.
3-2. MOUNTING ARRANGEMENTS.
The AR2000-M provides four (4) holes for
mounting in a standard rack. It utilizes a space of 2U.

signal lines, observe the correct polarity and install
wire nuts over the connections.
D. Low Level Audio Output.
The AR2000-M also has provision for 1 volt
audio output that can be switched to each zone for
individual external amplification. This low level
output is available at the same terminals as in B and
C above. This output is selected by setting the
switch on the back of the AR2000-M to the 1 Vrms
position. The output audio must also be connected
using 18-20GA wire from AUDIO OUT to AUDIO IN
FROM EXTERNAL AMP. The Gain may be adjusted
using the AUDIO OUT VOLUME control knob. It
can also be connected to an analog fiber optic transmitter so that audio can be transmitted over a fiber
optic link in an electrically noisy environment.

power the local Audio Router Device. If the PS600 is
used, it is not necessary to switch the power source if
a power failure occurs.
CAUTION
Improper installation could render this
system inoperable, interfering with the
indicating nature of this product. The installation must conform to applicable local and/or
National Electrical codes.
3. Disadvantages of Backup Power System.
a. A separate power source for all
remote devices is required. Heavy power lines are
required from that power source to the remote
devices in the system. The size of the power lines is
dependent upon the number of amplifiers and the
total distance of the power loop in order to minimize
the voltage drop while a signal is being routed.
If an emergency power source is required, a
backup power system described below should be
employed.
WARNING
b. Future expansion is limited by the
current capacity of the power source and the power
lines that were initially installed.
If the AR2000-M is to be connected to a nonpower limited 24 volt dc supply, the National
Electrical Code (NFPA70) requires that those
leads be separated from other classes of
wiring connected to this unit.
c. Central power installations must
comply with local electrical codes. Most power circuits are Class I circuits. Therefore, conduit will
probably be required. Installation costs are higher
than a local power system.
B. Backup Power (See figure 3-3).
1. General.
C. AR2000-M System Power Connections.
In the backup power system all of the
local power lines are connected in parallel to one
centrally located power source of 24VDC.
DANGER
Installation with the system power on could
cause serious injury or death. Do not perform
any installation or maintenance on this
system when power is on. Ensure that the
power is disconnected before proceeding.
2. Advantages of the Backup Power System.
a. The entire system may be independent of local line voltage.
b. The entire system can be switched to
an emergency standby power source in the event of a
power failure.
WARNING
This device is to be installed by a trained
electrician who is thoroughly familiar with
the national electrical code (NFPA 70) and
local codes and will follow the guidelines.
c. The central power system has the
added advantage that an auxiliary power supply,
such as the Federal Model PS600 can be used to
-11-
WARNING
3-8. CONNECTIONS TO REMOTE SWITCHES.
If this unit is to be connected to a non-power
limited 24 volt dc supply, the National Electrical Code (NFPA70) requires that those leads
be separated from other classes of wiring
connected to this unit.
The AR2000-M presets can be activated remotely by any normally open low current switch
contacts having a current capacity of at least 50 mA
inductive. Figure 3-6 illustrates the connection of
switch contacts to the AR2000-M. S1, S2, S3 and S4
represents remote switch contacts such as those
found in flow switches, program clocks, heat detectors, and smoke detectors. The remotely activated
presets function as long as the activating contacts
remain closed. A jumper needs to be placed across
OPTO COMMON and the provided +24V terminal
next to it on the back of the AR2000-M in order for
the remotely activated presets to function. A remote
switch may be connected to the ALL CALL position if
desired. These are all Normally Open contacts that
initiate with contact closure and remain active until
the contact is opened again.
CAUTION
Cross talk, interference, or hum can be
induced in signal lines, causing poor audio
output or confusing messages, which interferes with the capability of this equipment.
Do not install power lines in the same conduit
as signal lines.
Operating power is connected to AR2000-M
by merely inserting the plug end of the line cord into
any standard 120 volt, 60 Hz outlet. The AR2000-M is
factory set for 120VAC 50/60Hz operation. If 240 volt
operation is preferred, the input block provides a
switch that must be set to this position in order to
function at 240 VAC operation.
3-9. INPUT SOURCE CONNECTIONS.
WARNING
If it is desired to use 24 VDC either as a
primary or auxiliary source of power, connect the “+”
terminal of 24 volt DC power supply to the “+”
terminal at the 24VDC BACKUP POWER terminal
on the AR2000-M and “-” terminal of the 24 VDC
power supply to the “-“ terminal at the 24VDC
BACKUP POWER terminal on the AR2000-M located
in the back of the device. (See figure 3-3.)
Installation or maintenance on AR2000-M
when power is on can result in serious injury
or death. Do not perform any installation or
maintenance to the system when power is on.
Set selector for CH A to the appropriate input
voltage, 1Vrms, 25Vrms or 70Vrms. Connect the “+”
of the source device to the “+” terminal at the Channel A input. Connect the “-“ of the source device to
the “-“ terminal at the Channel A input. Repeat this
process for the Channel B input. CH A and CH B
volume controls are available just above each input
selector to allow the input gain to be adjusted.
D. AR2000-P and AR2000-Z Power Connections.
Operating power is connected to AR2000-P
and AR2000-Z by merely connecting 24 VDC from the
AR2000-M to each unit. A terminal block is provided
at the rear-left side of each unit for power connection.
Observe and maintain proper polarity when wiring
the power to these units. Connect the “+” terminal of
the AR2000-M to the “+” terminal of the AR2000-P at
the “+” terminal located in the back of device. Connect the “-” terminal of the AR2000-M to the “-”
terminal of the AR2000-P at the “-” terminal located
in the back of device. An additional 24VDC power
outlet is provided on each AR2000-P and AR2000-Z
for daisy-chaining the power to each sub-unit. Repeat for each AR2000-P and AR2000-Z.
CAUTION
Be certain to set the input selector switch to
the appropriate input voltage to avoid damage to the unit and the device being connected.

IV. TESTING/OPERATING.
WARNING
Failure to follow all safety precautions and
instructions may result in property damage,
serious injury, or possible death to you or
others.
4-2. Provide a copy of these instructions for the
Safety Engineer(s), System Operators(s) and Maintenance personal.
4-3. TELEPHONE FUNCTION COMMANDS.
WARNING
Under certain conditions these devices are
capable of transferring sound loud enough to
cause hearing damage. Adequate hearing
protection should be worn if standing within
close proximity to the device while testing.
Recommendations in OSHA Sound Level
Standard (29CFR 1910) should not be exceeded.
A. Changing the Password.
When the line attached to the Router is
called, the Router will answer with the message
“ENTER PASSWORD”. Enter your 8 digit password.
Then the caller will hear the message
“PRESS 9 KEY TO CHANGE THE PASSWORD OR
6 KEY TO RECORD A MESSAGE”.
SAFETY MESSAGE TO OPERATORS
Press the 9 key, the message “ENTER NEW
PASSWORD” will inform the caller to enter a new
password. The same new password must be entered
twice. The caller will hear the message “PASSWORD
CHANGED” then the message “GOODBYE” and the
system hangs up the phone line.
Although your Multiplexing system is operating properly it may not be completely effective. People may not hear or heed your
messages. You must recognize this fact and
ensure that your messages achieve their
intended effect through proper test and
training sequences suitable for your specific
application(s).
The password can be returned to the default
“12345678” by opening the cover of the Router and
-15-
setting switch SW1 to position #4 to the “ON” position for 5 seconds with the power “ON”.
message will be sent to Zones 1, 4 and 6 of the Master
unit (Bank 1).
B. Recording a Message for Broadcast.
For example: If there is one AR2000-Z unit
connected to the AR2000-M, then it is on Bank 2. To
send a message to only Zone 4 of the AR2000-Z in
Bank 2, key in the following after recording a message: key in [*], [2], [4], and then press the [#] key
and hang up. The message will be sent only to Zone 4
of Bank 2.
When the line attached to the Router is
called, the Router will answer with the message
“ENTER PASSWORD”. Enter your 8 digit password.
Then the caller will hear the message
“PRESS 9 KEY TO CHANGE THE PASSWORD OR
6 KEY TO RECORD A MESSAGE”.
For example: If there are two AR2000-Z units
connected to the AR2000-M, then they are on Bank 2
and on Bank 3. To send a message to Zone 4 of the
AR2000-Z in Bank 2 and Zone 5 of the AR2000-Z in
Bank 3, key in the following after recording a message: key in [*], [2], [4] and key in [*], [3], [5] and then
press the [#] key and hang up. The message will be
sent to Zone 4 of Bank 2 and Zone 5 of Bank 3.
Press the 6 key, the message “RECORD
MESSAGE, PRESS # KEY TO BROADCAST YOUR
MESSAGE” prompts the caller to start speaking. Say
your message into the phone. Press [#] and hang up
the phone. Your message will be sent to all zones
connected to the Audio Router Device. The message
can be up to 90 seconds long. If the user exceeds 90
second duration, the message will not play back. This
is the procedure for selecting “All Call”.
For example: To send a message to Zone 6
from Bank 8 after recording a message, key in [*], [8],
[6] and then press the [#] key and hang up. The
message will be sent to Zone 6 of Bank 8.
C. Abort a Message Without Sending it
Anywhere.
Hang up at any time without pressing [#].
For example: To select Zones 1,3,5 from Bank
2 and Zones 1, 2 from Bank 3, key in the following
after recording a message: key in [*], [2 ], [1], [3], [5],
[*], [3], [1], [2], [#] and hang up. The message will be
sent to Zones 1, 3 and 5 of Bank 2 and Zones 1 and 2
of Bank 3.
D. Send Your Message to a Specific Selected Zone
or Zones.
After saying the message, press any keys on
the telephone keypad from 1-8. These correspond to
the eight zones which are connected to the master
AR2000-M unit. Pressing [1] will select Zone 1,
pressing [5] will select Zone 5 and pressing [8] will
select Zone 8.
E. Send Your Message to a Selected Preset.
After recording a message, first key in [0 ],
then the associated Bank number(1-8) and then the
Preset number of that Bank (1-8). The zero indicates
you are about to select a preset Bank and preset
number. Only one preset may be selected for a
message.
For example: To send a message to only Zone
3 of the AR2000-M, after recording the message key
in [3] and then press the [#] key. The message will be
sent only to Zone 3.
For example: To send a message to Zone 3
and Zone 4 of the AR2000-M, after recording the
message key in [3], key in [4] and then press the [#]
key. The message will be sent to Zone 3 and to Zone
4.
If additional AR2000-P units are connected,
those Presets may also be individually selected. To
accomplish this, first key in [0], then key in the Bank
number which is associated with the additional
Preset you desire to reference (2 –8) and then key in
a Preset for that bank. A maximum of seven (7)
additional Preset Banks may be added to the
AR2000-M device. The master unit is designated as
Bank 1.
If additional AR2000-Z units are connected,
those Zones may also be individually selected. To
accomplish this first key in [*], then key in the bank
number which is associated with the additional zones
you desire to reference (2 –8) and then key in a Zone
for that bank. A maximum of seven (7) additional
Zone Banks may be added to the AR2000-M device.
The master unit is designated as Bank 1.
To select preset 2 from Bank 2 after recording
a message, key in [0], [2], [2] and then press the [#]
key and hang up. The message will be sent to Preset
2 of Bank 2.
For example: Keying in [*], [1], [2] will select
to send your message to zone 2 of Bank 1 (located in
the master unit). The [*] says you are about to select
a Bank number and Zone. To send the message to
Bank 1 Zones 1, 4, and 6, after recording a message
key in [*], [1], [1], [4], [6], [# ] and hang up. The
To select Preset 3 from Bank 8 after recording a message, key in [0], [8], [3] and then press the
[#] key and hang up. The message will be sent to
Preset 3 of Bank 8.
