Stereo/Mono Configuration
Each MC960PA remote amplifier is equipped with a stereo/mono select
jumper. All MC960PA amplifiers are shipped
from the factory with this jumper in the STEREO
position. If an amplifier is required to drive more
than 10 monaural speakers, this jumper must
be set to the MONO position (refer to figure 20).
Setting the jumper to the MONO position will
cause monaural output to all speakers whether
they are connected via stereo controls or mono
controls. The jumper setting of one MC960PA
amplifier has no effect on other MC960PA
amplifiers.
