INTRODUCTION AND CONTENTS
MP8
INTRODUCTION3
The Australian Monitor Installation Series MP8 is a 2 RU monitoring
panel that allows you to monitor any of up to 8, constant voltage or
low impedance speaker lines.
FRONT PANEL

REAR PANEL
5
This can be done via the on-board 2.5” monitor speaker or via the
8 segment VU meter. The MP8 also provides signal present LED’s
for each amplifier as well as LED’s to indicate which amplifier is
currently selected for monitoring.
INSTALLATION6
OPERATION7
The MP8 operates from either an AC/DC 12V-24V plug pack or via
24 VDC & boasts ample label space.

1 Monitor Speaker
A 2.5” speaker is located behind a cloth grille. No cleaning is required.
2 Monitor Speaker
Volume Control
This knob controls the volume level of the monitor speaker.
NOTE: The Speaker Volume Control does not affect the level of the
VU indicator nor does it affect the amplifiers or speaker lines that are
connected to the MP8.
3 VU Meter
This meter indicates the output level of the currently selected amplifier. The 0dB
level is referenced to 100V. This is an RMS meter, not a peak meter.

6 Signal Present
This LED will light dimly when the signal from the corresponding amplifier
reaches approximately -24dB (6.3Vac) indicating signal is present and will get
progressively brighter with increased signal level.
NOTE: Signal present indication is irrespective of which amplifier is
selected. This indicator is a passive circuit across the amplifier input and
will indicate signal across each speaker line even when the MP8 is not
powered.
7 Labels
This area is available to custom label the zones each amplifier is driving.
8 Power Switch
This switch switches power from the AC/DC plug pack input.
4 Selector Switches
These switches select which amplifier is connected to the monitor and meter
circuits. The switches are mechanical interlocking push buttons, meaning that
when one button is pushed, the previously selected switch is mechanically
deselected.
NOTE: When using 24VDC IN terminals the unit is on regardless of
switch position.
9 Power On LED
This indicates there is power to the unit.
5 Select Indicator
This LED indicator will illuminate to show which amplifier is selected for
monitoring.

NOTE: When using 24VDC IN terminals the power LED will always
be on.

1 Power Socket
This 2.1mm socket accepts AC or DC voltage between 12V and 24V. For DC,
tip is positive.
2 24VDC In Binding Posts
These binding posts provide connection for 24V emergency systems and is
not switched by the front panel power switch. The 24VDC IN does not provide
trickle charge facility.

3 Input Terminal Strip
Paired connection from each amplifier in the system. The label AMP ‘X’
corresponds with AMPLIFIER ‘X’ on the selector switches.
4 Output Terminal Strip
Paired connection to each zone speaker distribution, wired in parallel with input
terminal strip.
NOTE: The terminal lug accepts wire gauges from AWG22 (0.75mm)
up to AWG16 (1.5mm). Each terminal is rated at 15A/300VAC.
NOTE: The MP8 will accept input from both constant voltage systems
and low impedance systems or a mixture of the two.

INSTALLATION
Wiring:
Connect the speaker output of the first amplifier to INPUT terminals labelled
AMP 1, maintaining correct polarity. Connect the speaker load for this amplifier
to OUTPUT terminals labelled ZONE 1. Repeat for additional amplifiers and
speaker loads. Always use appropriate cable for amplifier to MP8 and MP8
to speaker wiring.
NOTE About Grounding: It may be necessary in some circumstances
to ground the MP8 to eliminate noise from the monitor speaker. This can be
done using the negative terminal of the 24VDC IN binding post or by making
sure that the chassis is electrically connected to the equipment rack (which
should be grounded).
Power Requirements:
NOTE About Speaker Isolation: When a zone is selected for
monitoring it is isolated from the other amplifiers by 1kohm resistors. The
negative input is also AC referenced to chassis ground with a capacitor.
The MP8 can operate on the supplied plug pack and/or separate 24V DC
power supply.

AMIS MP8 INSTALLATION AND OPERATION MANUAL
OPERATION
The SIGNAL PRESENT LEDs give a continuous indication of the signal from
each of the eight connected amplifiers. Note that very low levels may not be
detected.
To monitor a particular amplifier, SELECT the desired amplifier. The listening
level may be adjusted using the MONITOR SPEAKER VOLUME. The PROGRAM
LEVEL meter gives accurate indication of signal from the selected amplifier.
NOTE About Monitoring: It should be noted that adjusting the monitor
speaker level control does not effect the sound level in the selected zone
and nor do the level indications indicate the SPL of the speakers in any zone.
The MP8 should be used to monitor an amplifiers output signal quality and
presence only and as such, it does not reflect the condition of the actual
sound output in any speaker zone.
AMIS MP8 INSTALLATION AND OPERATION MANUAL
Setting The Level
The monitor speaker level has been designed to accept a wide range of
program levels. Distortion may occur in the MP8 if the speaker volume control
is set too high while the amplifier is producing a high output, as indicated by
the program level meter. Check the setting of the level control and reduce
if necessary. If distortion is still present, then check amplifier operation and
affected speaker lines.
Switching The Monitored Zone
It is possible to select 2 amplifiers at once and monitor them simultaneously,
however, this is not recommended. Fusible isolation protection exists to protect
both the external amplifiers and the MP8.
