SoundPlus® Infrared Listening System
System Overview
The Williams Sound SoundPlus® Infrared Listening System consists of a MOD 232 Modulator(s) and one or more TX9
Emitters which use invisible infrared (IR) light to broadcast speech or music to wireless infrared receivers.
The system is designed to transmit high quality audio for hearing assistance and language translation applications.
Because the system uses infrared light for transmission, it is not affected by interference from radio equipment and
does not interfere with radio equipment. No FCC license or radio approval is required.
The system can be used with microphones as a stand-alone system, or can be connected to other sound
equipment. Infrared systems generally cannot be used in direct sunlight because of sunlight’s large amount of
interfering infrared light.
Note: This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A digital device, pursuant
to part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful
interference when the equipment is operated in a commercial environment. This equipment generates,
uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the
instruction manual, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. Operation of this equipment
in a residential area is likely to cause harmful interference in which case the user will be required to correct
the interference at his own expense.
NOTICE: A plasma monitor can degrade the audio quality of the SoundPlus® Infrared Listening System.

Baseband Cable Connection
The MOD 232 can directly drive one or two emitters. TX9 emitters repeat the baseband signal, so any number of
emitters can be used. The modulator outputs CANNOT be split with CATV splitters.
Determine the length of RG-58 cable needed to reach from the TX9 Emitter to the Modulator unit. Install BNC
connectors to each end of the cable.
For two-channel operation, only one MOD 232 is required: Connect the coaxial cable to one of the Baseband Output
jacks on the rear of the MOD 232. The other end of the coaxial cable connects to the Baseband Input jack of the TX9
Emitter. See Figure 3 below.

Connect to the TX9 using RG-58 cable and BNC connectors. The MOD 232 has two baseband output jacks to
simplify connections when multiple emitters are used.
To setup a system for four-channel operation, two MOD 232 Modulators are required. Link the two Modulator units
together as shown in Figure 4. Connect the baseband output from the second modulator in the chain to the TX9

Audio Connection
Microphone Input:
With the modulator DIP switches set for microphone input, the 3-pin XLR jack accepts balanced microphones. Power
for condenser microphones can be selected by DIP switch. The minimum input level is 100uV and the maximum level
is 90 mV.
XLR Line-Level Input:
With the modulator DIP switches set for line-level input, the 3-pin XLR jack accepts balanced line-level audio inputs.
The minimum input level is 21mV and the maximum level is 10V.
1/4" TRS Line-Level Input:
The 1/4" Tip/Ring/Sleeve (TRS) jack can accept only a balanced or unbalanced line-level input. A 25 V, 70 V, or
100V speaker line can be connected to the balanced line input using an appropriate attenuator. “T” pads made with
resistors yield better fidelity than speaker matching transformers.

Compressor Gain
The MOD 232’s Compressor Gain is set in “Moderate” mode from the factory. Use this setting for simultaneous
interpretation. Be sure that the compress control, located on the front of the MOD 232 (Figure 6, page 6), is turned
fully counter-clockwise. Compression can be added if desired by turning the compress control clockwise.
For hearing assistance applications, the MOD 232’s Compressor Gain can be set to “Maximum” mode. For additional
compression, use a tuning wand (PLT 005) or small screw driver and gently turn the compress control (Figure 6, page
6) on the front of the MOD 232 clockwise.

SoundPlus® Infrared Listening System
TX9 Emitter Setup
TX9 Location and Placement
To determine the best location for the TX9 Emitter, it helps to think of the IR emitter as an invisible floodlight. You’ll want
to aim it so the listeners are “flooded” with the infrared light. Mount the emitter at least 2 ft (.61 m) above the audience.
Position the emitter to face in a slightly downward angle - that will increase the “throw” of the infrared beam. Infrared
light reflects off most surfaces and scatters, increasing the coverage area. Rough surfaces tend to absorb infrared light,
minimizing reflections, and limiting coverage to the direct illumination. Remember: opaque objects block infrared light.
Thus, emitters cannot be concealed behind opaque walls, curtains, etc.
The emitter front red plastic lens must NOT be painted. Neither should emitters be used in areas of extreme high or low
temperature, humidity, or chemical environments.
The TX9 Infrared Emitter should not be installed where there is a lot of direct sunlight, which can create infrared interference.

These patterns are the direct radiation pattern. The infrared radiation does not drop to zero outside the illustrated
patterns; it decreases. It still may be useable at a greater distance, depending on the receiver sensitivity and the
reflective characteristics of the room. Reflections of the infrared light from walls, ceilings, and floors may change
these patterns.

TX9 Indicator Light Is Not On.
• Make sure the transformer is plugged into the emitter and any remote power switch is on.
• Make sure the electrical outlet is on.
• Make sure the 24 VAC power supply is working.
Only TX9’s Power Indicator LED Comes On.
• Make sure the MOD 232 is on.
• Make sure the baseband cable is connected properly. See page 5, Figures 3 & 4.
• Check to see if the carrier light on the MOD 232 is on.
• Make sure an audio signal is being sent to the MOD 232.
No Sound Through Receivers.
• If some of the receivers work but others don’t, check for bad batteries or earphones on the receivers that aren’t
working.
• If none of the receivers work, check to see if the power and baseband cable are connected to the emitter and that
the TX9 Power and Baseband Present Indicator lights are ON.
• Check to see if the modulator is connected properly to the sound system. The Frequency Indicator should be lit and
there should be activity on the MOD 232 Level Indicators.
• Make sure the “eye” is not covered up on the receiver. There must be clear line of sight between the receiver eye and
the emitter panel.
Sound Through The Receivers Is Weak And Noisy.
• Make sure each channel is set to a different frequency on the MOD 232 modulator. Listen to the audio signal through
the Phones jack of the MOD 232 modulator. You can also hold a receiver in front of the Infrared Test LED on the front
of the MOD 232 modulator and listen to the audio signal. If the signal is weak and noisy here, check the Input Level
switch and Input Level Control settings. Increase the input signal level from the sound system by turning up the mixer
control. If the signal sounds okay, you may need to re-position the emitter panels or add additional panels.
NOTE: Make sure the powerline voltage does not fall below 94V, or system performance will be greatly reduced!
Buzzing Or Humming Noise In Sound System.
• Check for ground loops or noise on the input signal. Call your Authorized Williams Sound dealer or representative.
