Raise the volume of all touch panels, touchpads or volume controls to near maximum.
3.
Play source program material, such as a CD or a radio station.
4.
Have someone step into the room and listen.
5.
Enable ACE for all channels. (See ACE Menu on page 20.)
6.
On the Volume screen, select the channel that is wired to the speaker where the
person is listening.
7.
Slowly adjust Volume Up for this channel until the audio begins to distort, and then
drop the level one or two percentage points.
8.
Follow this procedure for all channels to achieve a good balance of sound from the
most used listening position in the zone.
9.
Enable or Disable ACE for all applicable channels.
Note: High volume levels can cause clipping and distortion. This can damage the
loudspeaker's components and cause the amplifier to go into protection mode. The
protection circuits will reset when the output signal conditions have returned to normal.

Chapter 3: Connections
The D16 has many rear panel connections so it is important to label cables with their
destination or source correctly.
Use high quality line level RCA connector type cables for source connections to ensure the
lowest possible noise and best sound performance.
For most applications, use 16AWG 2 conductor speaker cable. For wiring runs longer than
80 ft., it is recommended to use 14AWG 2 conductor speaker cable. The D16's high quality,
gold plated 5-way binding post will accommodate speaker cabling sizes up to 12AWG.
Attaching banana plugs will enable the connection of larger cable sizes.
3.5mm mono interconnect cables may be used for amplifier / channel triggering.
Line Level Audio Inputs
Connect line level input audio by inserting RCA cable into the audio input connectors.

BUS Inputs
The D16 BUS Inputs A and B enable custom configuration of listening areas. Large or
irregular shaped rooms may be configured for both mono and stereo as coverage is
needed. Hallways, passageways, bathrooms and laundry rooms are the most popular areas
that can benefit from a mono BUS application. BUS Input application examples are shown
in the Applications section of this manual.
Channels 1 and 2 analog inputs are used for the Bus A input channels and channels 9 and
10 analog inputs are used for the Bus B inputs.
The D16 also features optical digital audio inputs for Bus A and Bus B.
(See Bus Input Menus on page 25.)

BUS Outputs
BUS audio outputs enable connection of additional amplifiers to allow further system
expansion. Audio input 1 is buffered and routed out the audio output 1 connector, input 2

for 3 / 4, C for 5 / 6, D for 7 / 8, E for 9 / 10, F for 11 / 12, G for 13 / 14, and H for 15 / 16.
Digital audio inputs do not “loop out” of the D16. If multiple amplifiers are to be used in
Bus mode you should use the analog Bus inputs.

Speaker Binding Post
The D16 is equipped with gold plated, 5-way speaker binding post. This will allow for five
methods of speaker wire termination; bare wire, spade lug, pin, single banana and dual
banana plug. Label all speaker wires with their destination to ensure easy configuration. To
attach speaker wires use the following method:
1.
Carefully split the speaker wire insulation at least two inches.
2.
Strip 1/2 inch of the insulation from the speaker wire conductor exposing the bare
wire.
3.
Twist the wire strands of each conductor, if using banana plugs, attach wire to banana
plug observing polarity.
4.
If using banana plug; insert plug ends into binding post observing correct polarity. If
using the bare wire method; loosen red and black binding post caps and insert the
bare wire through the hole in the post. Tighten the knob until the wire is securely
clamped.
CAUTION! Speaker Wire connections must be made with the amplifier OFF

Figure 3-8
System Trigger Out
Special Note on Triggers
Once any channel receives any of the following commands, it will stop watching the trigger
input jack related to the channel:
Mute, Unmute, Mute Toggle, Power ON, Power OFF, Power Toggle.
The only way to return a channel to watching the trigger input is to restore Trigger Control
or restore Factory Defaults. Restoring Dealer Defaults may work, but it would depend on
when the IR command was sent (before or after the Dealer Save).
Once a channel is controlled by IR, it will always AC power on to the OFF state. This is to
prevent accidental music playing due to an AC power loss with an always on audio source.
This is shown on the Volume Menu as Trigger OFF. When the channel is turned on with a
Power ON command, it will display as Trigger ON with audio or Trigger ON/PS if there is
no audio present and the Power Save is enabled. The Power ON command will restore the
volume level using the Min/Max Turn On Volume parameters. When a channel is turned
on by ending Mute, the volume is restored to the previous level, regardless of the preset
Min/Max Turn On parameters.

Appendix A: IR / VIA!NET Command Set
Instead of using volume controls to have independent control of the volume in a zone and
sub zone, control the Sub-Zone channels of the D16 using IR Commands. Route the
VARIABLE out of Zone 1 of the S128P to audio inputs 1 and 2 and route the FIXED out of
Zone 1 of the S128P to audio inputs 3 and 4.
The S128P increases or decreases the volume level for channels 1 and 2 Main Zone.
To control the Sub Zone speakers that are connected to channels 3 and 4, send IR
Commands to the D16. These commands can be programmed on a different ELAN control
located in the Sub Zone or from the same control located in the Main Zone.
Remember to connect the IR input to the D16.
