HOW TO USE THIS MANUAL
MPS-488HP EXTERNAL POWER SUPPLY
Make sure to read these operating instructions in their
entirety before configuring a loudspeaker system with
MPS-488HP power supplies. In particular, pay close attention to material related to safety issues.
The MPS-488HP external power supply delivers DC power
and balanced audio to up to eight Meyer Sound loudspeakers that require an external 48 V DC power supply.
As you read these operating instructions, you will encounter
the following icons for notes, tips, and cautions:

The single-space 19-inch rack MPS-488HP can be used
with the following Meyer Sound loudspeakers:
■
MM-4XP miniature loudspeaker
■
UP-4XP ultracompact loudspeaker
■
HMS-10 surround loudspeaker.
■
MM-10XP miniature subwoofer
Powering loudspeakers from an external source eliminates
the need for wiring conduits while still preserving the advantages of self-powered systems. Meyer Sound's externally
powered loudspeakers are equipped with onboard amplification and signal-processing circuits that store DC power
and tolerate voltage drops (up to 30 percent), thereby
accommodating light-gauge cables and lengthy cable runs.
The MPS-488HP receives eight channels of balanced audio
from its XLR female Channel Inputs and routes the audio,
along with 48 V of DC power, to its eight Channel Outputs.
Channel Inputs feature toggle switches that route audio to
corresponding outputs only, or to adjacent, contiguous outputs. For example, Channel Input 1 can be routed to Channel Outputs 1 and 2 and Channel Input 3 can be routed to
Channel Outputs 3 and 4. Another example would be to
route Channel Input 1 to Channel Outputs 1–4 and Channel
Input 5 to Channel Outputs 5–8.
The power supply’s eight Channel Outputs are equipped with
sophisticated microprocessor-controlled current limiting that
protects each channel from short circuits and unexpected
voltages. The Channel Outputs are available as either
Phoenix™ 5-pin male connectors on the MPS-488HPp
model, or SwitchCraft® EN3™ 5-pin female connectors on
the MPS-488HPe model. Outputs can deliver DC power to
loudspeakers at cable lengths up to 150 feet or 300 feet
(depending on the loudspeaker model) with just 1 dB of loss
in peak SPL using 18 AWG wire. The use of composite mul-
7
CHAPTER 1: INTRODUCTION
ticonductor cables (such as Belden® 1502 or equivalent)
allows a single cable to carry both audio and DC power from
the MPS-488HP to the loudspeakers. Longer cable lengths
are possible for moderate applications that don't drive the
loudspeakers to maximum output, as well as for installations
with heavier wire gauges.
MPS-488HPp Model with Phoenix Output Connectors
MPS-488HPe Model with EN3 Output Connectors
The MPS-488HP front panel has two LEDs per Channel Output that provide useful feedback on the status of the system. The Voltage LEDs indicate when voltage is present for
each Channel Output. The Load Current LEDs indicate when
a loudspeaker is connected to a Channel Output, glow
brighter as the signal level increases, and flash when a short
circuit is encountered.
NOTE: The MPS-488HP external power supply
replaces the MPS-488 model, which was originally designed for use with MM-4XP loudspeakers.
The MPS-488 is also compatible with the UP-4XP,
HMS-10, and MM-10XP, but can only power a maximum of four of these loudspeakers; when powering
these loudspeakers with the MPS-488, they should
only be connected to Channel Outputs 1, 3, 5, and 7
(do not use the even-numbered Channel Outputs).

CHAPTER 2: MPS-488HP FRONT AND REAR PANELS
MPS-488HP FRONT PANEL
Blue Voltage LEDs (1–8)
The MPS-488HP front panel includes a power switch and
LEDs for monitoring each loudspeaker channel.
The blue Voltage LEDs indicate whether voltage is present
for the Channel Outputs. These LEDs should be lit when the
MPS-488HP is powered on. The MPS-488HP’s intelligent
circuit protection shields connected loudspeakers from
surges and shorts. When a blue Voltage LED is unlit and its
corresponding green Load Current LED is blinking, a surge
or short has been detected for the channel. If a surge or
short is encountered, power down the MPS-488HP and
inspect the loudspeaker cabling for that channel.

AC Input
The MPS-488HP has a PowerCon twist-lock AC Input connector (line, neutral/line, earth). The connector can accept
different power cord types for outlets used throughout the
world. Make sure to use the correct power cord for the AC
power in your area. The MPS-488HP operates at an AC voltage range of 100–240 V at 50–60 Hz.
Channel Inputs
Up to eight channels of balanced audio are received from the
MPS-488HP’s eight Channel Inputs. The inputs are equipped
with XLR female connectors (pin 1, ground; pin 2, signal positive; pin 3, signal negative). Make sure to use standard balanced XLR cables with all three pins connected on both
ends.
CAUTION: When a green Voltage LED is unlit
and its corresponding blue Load Current LED is
blinking, indicating a surge or short for the channel,
power down the MPS-488HP and inspect the loudspeaker cabling for that channel.
!
MPS-488HP Channel Inputs
Channel Inputs default to being routed to their corresponding Channel Outputs but can also be routed to adjacent outputs with the Link switches, though this affects their input
impedance (see “Input Impedance for Linked Channel
Inputs” on page 11).
10
MPS-488HP OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Link Switches
Routing Two Inputs to Four Outputs Each
Link switches determine how Channel Inputs are routed to
Channel Outputs. When a Channel Input’s Link switch is
OFF (set to the down position), the input is only routed to its
corresponding output: for example, Channel Input 1 routed
to Channel Output 1. When a Link switch is ON (set to the
up position), the input is routed to its corresponding output
and the next adjacent output: for example, Channel Input 1
routed to Channel Output 1 and Channel Output 2. If multiple, adjacent Link switches are enabled, the input is routed
to each adjacent output: for example, Channel Input 1
routed to Channel Outputs 1, 2, and 3.
To route two Channel Inputs to four Channel Outputs each:
1. Set the Link 4 switch to OFF and all other Link switches
to ON.

Input Impedance for Linked Channel Inputs
When a Link switch is enabled, the Channel Input’s unbuffered source signal is transmitted in parallel to each linked
Channel Output. This causes the Channel Input’s impedance (normally 10 kOhms for one loudspeaker) to be
reduced for each linked output. For example:
■
1 Channel Output, 10 kOhm input impedance
■
2 Channel Outputs, 5 kOhm input impedance
■
4 Channel Outputs, 2500 ohms input impedance
■
8 Channel Outputs, 1250 ohms input impedance
11
CHAPTER 2: MPS-488HP FRONT AND REAR PANELS
To avoid distortion when linking Channel Inputs, make sure
the source device can drive the total load impedance of the
linked loudspeakers. The source device must be capable of
delivering a minimum of 16 dBV (6.3 V rms into 600 ohms) to
yield the maximum peak SPL over the operating bandwidth
of the loudspeaker.
NOTE: Most source devices are capable of
driving loads no smaller than 10 times their
output impedance. To drive eight loudspeakers
linked from a single Channel Input, the source device
should have an output impedance of approximately
100 ohms or less.
Channel Outputs
The MPS-488HP’s eight Channel Outputs deliver DC power
(48 V DC) and balanced audio to up to eight loudspeakers.
The channel outputs are available as either Phoenix 5-pin
male connectors (on the MPS-488HPp model) or EN3 5-pin
male connectors (on the MPS-488HPe model).
NOTE: For information on cable requirements
for your loudspeaker, refer to its operating
instructions. For information on cables and cable
accessories available from Meyer Sound, see
Appendix A, “MPS-488HP Accessories.” For information on cable assembly, see Appendix B, “Phoenix
and EN3 Cable Assembly.”
TIP: A single composite cable (such as Belden
1502 or equivalent) wired for both DC power
and balanced audio can be used to connect loudspeakers to Channel Outputs.
CAUTION: When wiring cable connections for
MPS-488HP Channel Outputs, it is extremely
important that each pin in the connector be wired correctly. Make sure the 48 V DC from the MPS-488HP is
wired directly (and only) to the 48 V DC pins on the
loudspeaker connector, and that the polarity is
observed (negative to negative, positive to positive) to
avoid damage to the loudspeaker. In addition, make
sure that audio pins are wired correctly; polarity reversals for audio signals affect system performance.
!
MPS-488HPp Channel Outputs
The MPS-488HPp Channel Outputs are Phoenix 5-pin male
connectors with three pins for balanced audio (positive, negative, and shield) and two pins for DC Power (positive and
negative). The pins are clearly labeled on the MPS-488HPp
rear panel.
MPS-488HPp Channel Outputs
Each MPS-488HPp comes with eight Phoenix 5-pin female
cable connectors for assembling loudspeaker cables.
MPS-488HPe Channel Outputs
The MPS-488HPe Channel Outputs are EN3 5-pin female
connectors with three pins for balanced audio (positive,
negative, and shield) and two pins for DC Power (positive
and negative). The pins are clearly labeled on the
MPS-488HPe rear panel.
MPS-488HPe Channel Outputs
Each MPS-488HPe comes with eight EN3 5-pin male cable
connectors for assembling loudspeaker cables.

MPS-488HP OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
MPS-488HP CURRENT DRAW
SAFETY ISSUES
The current draw for the MPS-488HP and its connected
loudspeakers is dynamic and fluctuates as operating levels
change. Since different cables and circuit breakers heat up
at varying rates, it is important to understand the following
types of current ratings and how they affect circuit breaker
and cable specifications.
Pay close attention to these important electrical and safety
issues.
■
Idle Current — The maximum rms current during idle
periods.
■
Maximum Long-Term Continuous Current — The
maximum rms current during a period of at least 10 seconds. The Maximum Long-Term Continuous Current is
used to calculate temperature increases for cables, to
ensure that cable sizes and gauges conform to electrical
code standards. This current rating is also used as a rating for slow-reacting thermal breakers.
■
Burst Current — The maximum rms current during a
period of around one second. The Burst Current is used
as a rating for magnetic breakers. It is also used for calculating the peak voltage drop in long AC cable runs
according to the following formula:
■
The MPS-488HP requires a grounded outlet.
Earth ground
Chassis ground
■
Do not use a ground-lifting adapter or cut the AC cable
ground pin.
■
Keep all liquids away from the MPS-488HP to avoid hazards from electrical shock.
■
Do not operate the unit if the power cables are frayed or
broken.
V pk (drop) = I pk x R (cable total)
■
Ultimate Short-Term Peak Current — A rating for fastreacting magnetic breakers.
■
Inrush Current — The spike of initial current encountered when powering on.
For current draw values for the MPS-488HP with connected
loudspeakers, see Appendix C, “MPS-488HP Specifications.”
The minimum electrical service amperage required by an
MPS-488HP is the sum of the Maximum Long-Term Continuous Current for all loudspeakers connected to the
MPS-488HP. An additional 30 percent above the minimum
amperage is recommended to prevent peak voltage drops at
the service entry.
NOTE: For best performance, the AC cable
voltage drop should not exceed 10 V, or
10 percent at 115 V and 5 percent at 230 V. Make
sure that even with AC voltage drops that the AC
voltage always remains within the operating window.
13
CHAPTER 2: MPS-488HP FRONT AND REAR PANELS
14
CHAPTER 3: CONNECTING LOUDSPEAKERS TO THE MPS-488HP
NOTE: For information on cable requirements
for your loudspeaker, refer to its operating
instructions. For information on cables and cable
accessories available from Meyer Sound, see
Appendix A, “MPS-488HP Accessories.” For information on cable assembly, see Appendix B, “Phoenix
and EN3 Cable Assembly.”
CAUTION: When wiring cable connections for
MPS-488HP Channel Outputs, it is extremely
important that each pin in the connector be wired correctly. Make sure the 48 V DC from the MPS-488HP is
wired directly (and only) to the 48 V DC pins on the
loudspeaker connector, and that the polarity is
observed (negative to negative, positive to positive) to
avoid damage to the loudspeaker. In addition, make
sure that audio pins are wired correctly; polarity reversals for audio signals affect system performance.
!
To connect loudspeakers to the MPS-488HP:
1. Power off the MPS-488HP.
2. Connect audio sources (from a mixer or processor) to
the MPS-488HP Channel Inputs. Use balanced XLR
cables.
3. Use the MPS-488HP Link switches to route Channel
Inputs to the desired Channel Outputs (see “Link
Switches” on page 11).
4. Connect the loudspeakers to the MPS-488HP Channel
Outputs. Use composite cables (such as Belden 1502 or
equivalent) wired for both DC power and balanced audio
and outfitted with the appropriate connectors.
■
When connecting loudspeakers equipped with Phoenix
connectors to the MPS-488HPp power supply, use
Phoenix 5-pin female to Phoenix 5-pin female cables.
TIP: You can use two separate cables for loudspeaker connections: a 2-conductor cable for
DC power and a 3-conductor cable for balanced
audio, both attached to a single Phoenix connector
on each cable end. This allows you to use a larger
gauge for the DC cable so you can achieve longer
cable runs.
15
CHAPTER 3: CONNECTING LOUDSPEAKERS TO THE MPS-488HP
■
When connecting loudspeakers equipped with EN3 connectors to the MPS-488HPe power supply, use EN3 5pin male to EN3 5-pin female cables.
5. Power on the MPS-488HP and monitor the LEDs on its
front panel to verify the connections (see “Voltage and
Load Current LEDs (1–8)” on page 9).
6. Check loudspeaker LEDs to verify whether the loudspeakers are ready to reproduce audio.
7. Enable output from the audio sources (from the mixer or
processor) connected to the MPS-488HP.
■

APPENDIX B: PHOENIX AND EN3 CABLE ASSEMBLY
CAUTION: When wiring cable connections for MPS-488HP Channel Outputs, it is extremely important that each
pin in the connector be wired correctly. Make sure the 48 V DC from the MPS-488HP is wired directly (and only)
to the 48 V DC pins on the loudspeaker connector, and that the polarity is observed (negative to negative, positive to
positive) to avoid damage to the loudspeaker. In addition, make sure that audio pins are wired correctly; polarity reversals for audio signals affect system performance.

ASSEMBLING EN3-TO-EN3 LOUDSPEAKER CABLES
When connecting loudspeakers equipped with EN3 connectors to the MPS-488HPe power supply, you need an EN3 5-pin
female to EN3 5-pin male cable. The following procedure documents how to assemble this cable. If you are starting with an
EN3-to-pigtail cable, you can skip step 5 in this procedure.
NOTE: Cable mount connectors cannot connect to other cable mount connectors. Cable mount connectors
can only connect to panel mount connectors (like those on the MPS-488HPe) or inline connectors. To extend
cables with EN3 connectors on both ends you can use an EN3 5-pin female-to-male cable coupler.
Assembled EN3-to-EN3 Cable
To assemble an EN3-to-EN3 loudspeaker cable:
1. Disassemble the EN3 5-pin male connector and feed one end of the cable through the boot, cable clamp housing, and
coupling ring.
