IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Danger
Exposure to extremely high noise levels may cause a permanent
hearing loss. Individuals vary considerably to noise induced hearing
loss but nearly everyone will lose some hearing if exposed to sufficiently
intense noise for a sufficient time. The U.S. Government's
Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has specified
the following permissible noise level exposures:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
DURATION PER DAY (HOURS) 8 6 4 3 2 1
SOUND LEVEL (dB)
6.
7.
90 93 95 97 100 103
8.
According to OSHA, any exposure in the above permissible limits could
result in some hearing loss. Ear plugs or protectors in the ear canal or over
the ears must be worn when operating this amplification system in order to
prevent a permanent hearing loss. If exposure in excess of the limits as
put forth above, to insure against potentially harmful exposure to high
sound pressure levels, it is recommended that all persons exposed to
equipment capable of inducing high sound pressure levels, such as this
amplification system, be protected by hearing protectors while this unit is in
operation.

The Elevate 6.6 System uses CAT5 cable for keypad control and either two or four-conductor 16-gauge speaker wire. All the wire is “homerun” from each
zone to the location of the Elevate 6.6 amplifier and Audio Source equipment.
Complete CAT5 Crimping Instructions
The Breatheaudio audio systems require CAT5, unshielded, twisted
pair (UTP), for communication between the keypads/Display Pads and
the main amplifier unit. Each end of the wire is terminated with an
RJ45 connector.
Top view with
tab down.
The Elevate 6.6 System can accommodate 2,000 total feet of CAT5
cable. For the most reliable operation, it is best that no single run of
CAT5 exceeds 250 feet.
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
The correct wiring scheme for the CAT5 cable is standard EIA/TIA
568A or the commercial standard, 568B. Properly terminating the
CAT5 cable is crucial for the operation of the system. It is very
important to use a good quality crimp tool, and test each end to end run
with a CAT5 wire tester to insure that your system operates flawlessly,
fig.1. The BA-AWT1 Allport tester is available and sold
separately.

4. Blue
5. Blue Stripe
6. Orange
7. Brown Stripe
8. Brown
Step-by-Step Crimping Instructions:
1. Strip a 2 to 3 inch portion of the insulation, exposing the 4 twisted
pairs.
2. Untwist the wires and fan them out individually. Arrange the wires
into the correct color scheme as shown in Fig. 1.
3. Flatten the wires in their correct order, and trim them evenly across
the top. Most crimp tools have a wire trimmer built-in. It is best to
trim the wires to about ½” in length.
4. While holding the wires flat between your thumb and forefinger,
insert the wires into the RJ45 connector, so each is in its own slot.
Push the wire into the RJ45, so all 8 conductors touch the end of
the connector. The insulation jacket should extend beyond the
crimp point of the RJ45.
5. Insert the RJ45 into the crimp tool receptacle and squeeze the tool
firmly. Note that a ratchet type tool should tighten down until it no
longer clicks.
6. The RJ45 should be firmly crimped to the CAT5 insulation. It is
necessary that the color scheme be repeated identically on each
end of the wire.
Note: Colors listed as “stripe” are a white wire
with a colored stripe.

II. Installing the Elevate 6.6 Amplifier
System setup works best when the amplifier is placed in the same location as
the audio source equipment. This is typically in an audio rack, entertainment
center or a closet dedicated to housing the home audio/video equipment.
The amplifier should be plugged in and the power button on the front
panel should be depressed before proceeding with the rest of the
installation. This activates the internal protective circuitry of the Elevate 6.6
System.

II. Terminating Speaker Wire
L-
L+
ZONE5
The speaker wire for each zone is terminated at the back of the system’s
Allport. The six zone screw down terminals are located on each side and
labeled for the appropriate zone. The common speaker termination scheme is
Left - Left +, Right - Right +. Either two or four-conductor 16-guage wire is
recommended. Larger than 14-guage wire will not fit into the termination.
R-
R+
L-
L+
To terminate the speaker wire, strip back the outer jacket and expose the inner
conductors. Strip approximately 1/4” (4 mm) of the insulation from the inner
conductors exposing the copper wire. Place the exposed wire in the
appropriate termination and tighten the screw to hold the wire in place, fig. 2.
Be careful not to allow the exposed wire from each conductor to
touch the adjacent conductor. This will short the speaker input. Each
speaker output is designed for two 8-Ohm speakers. Overloading the
amplifier could cause it to overheat and do damage to the output.
III. Installing the BA-6640AP Allport
The Allport is a multi-connection hub designed to accept all the CAT5 and
speaker wires from the keypads in the system. Both the BA-6640MS main
system and the and the BA-6640XS six zone expander system have an Allport
included designed for up to six zones of speakers and keypads. When using
both the BA-6640MS main system and the BA-6640 expander system for a
full twelve zones, connect the two Allport with a short CAT5 jumper wire, see
fig.8 page 9. The location of the Allport should be determined by the location
of the Elevate 6.6 amplifier. It is best to place it in the wall behind the amplifier
that would be easily accessible if necessary.

CAT5 wires into any of the available RJ-45 jacks on the back of the Allport,
Fig. 3. The order in which the individual CAT5 wires are plugged is in not
important, although it is strongly recommended that you label the CAT5 with
the appropriate zone number for future reference.

VI. Connecting the IR Emitters
IR commands for the source equipment are transferred from the Elevate 6.6
amplifier to the source equipment via mini IR mouse emitters. Six of these are
supplied with your Elevate 6.6 System. The emitter is plugged into the
corresponding source IR output on the Elevate 6.6 and then placed over the IR
receiver window on the source component, fig. 6. The IR outputs are
individually routed to sources 1-6 allowing IR commands from the chosen
source to only control that source.
Fig. 6
The two SUM outputs will flash any IR command that is sent from any of the
zones. This can be used with an IR blaster designed to flash IR commands to a
variety of components. This is done by plugging a single mono 1/8” patch
cable into the SUM IR output and into the Direct IR input on the blaster.

An additional Allport Hub is included with the Expander package to allow for
the additional zone speaker and keypad connections. Terminate the speakers
for zones 7-12 in the same fashion as zones 1-6, page 7, fig. 2, into the
Expander Allport. The included multi-pin Allport Cable is used to connect the
speakers form the Expander Allport to the Allport connection on the back of
the Expander amplifier. The additional CAT5 cables for the zone 7-12 keypads
must also be plugged into the Expander package Allport, see page 7 fig.3. An
additional BA-NC3 Network Cable is supplied to act as a jumper from the
Expander Allport to the Main Allport, fig. 8. This combines all of the keypad
CAT5 cables into one CAT5 connection at the Main Elevate 6.6 amplifier. No
other connections are necessary with the exception of the AC power cord.
Note that the “Network” RJ-45 connection on the Expander Allport is
not used.

The BA-NC3 is a standard network
cable that is used to connect the Expander
Allport keypads to the Main Allport keypads.
Any open RJ-45 jack can be used for this.
The switch requires the use of a small flat screwdriver and is set by turning the
arrow insert on the switch to the appropriate zone number. Zones 1-12 are
set by using switch positions 1-C (note that zones 10, 11 and 12 are denoted
by A, B and C respectively). Switch positions D, E, F and 0 are for additional
keypads in zones 1-4.

All On/Party Mode
The Elevate 6.6 System has an All On feature. Any keypad within the system,
which can be up to twelve zones, has the ability to become a master control
for the entire house. The master keypad will control zone on, volume level,
and source selection for all other zones.
To place a keypad in Master Mode function, simply press the Mute and Source
4 buttons simultaneously. This will cause the volume indicator LED for that
zone’s keypad to flash continuously and adjust to a preset volume level (-60
dB). All other zones will then turn on to the same relative volume level and
increase or decrease with the volume adjustment on the master keypad, fig.
13. Each keypad volume LED indicates a preset meter level threshold, fig. 14.

If desired, you can change that default to a low level volume reset regardless
of the previous level.
To change the zone to volume reset mode, press the Mute and Source 5
buttons simultaneously. The Source 5 button will begin flashing. The volume
LED will first appear at the far left indicating no volume reset. Pushing the
Volume Up button will cause the volume LED to move to the far right position.
This now indicates that the zone is in volume reset mode, fig. 15.

X. Using the Fixed and Variable Lineouts
The first four zones of the Elevate 6.6 amplifier have two 3.5mm mini stereo outputs. These are fixed and variable lineouts used for adding additional amplification
when necessary for each zone. A distinct advantage to the Breatheaudio equipment is the ability to use the amplified output, variable and fixed lineouts on each of the
first four zones simultaneously. The Elevate 6.6 amplifier has zone trigger outputs that provide a 12V trigger for additional amplification. This enables the attached
amplifier to be triggered on and off with the zone keypad.
Zone Variable Lineout
The variable lineout is designed to allow additional audio amplification volume level to be controlled from that zone’s keypad. When used in conjunction with the zone
amplified output, fig. 16, all the speaker’s volume will track with the keypad volume level.

Zone Fixed Lineout
In some zone applications, it is more advantageous to have a separate volume control on the additional speakers being driven by an additional amplifier. This is
common with outdoor zones. The fixed lineout offers the capability to add amplification, but the audio signal is not affected by the zone keypad volume level.
Therefore, it requires a separate volume control for those speakers, fig. 17.

Additional speakers are controlled by a separate volume
control.

Troubleshooting
Symptom
Probable Cause
Remedy
When the keypad is plugged in there is a loud pop
through the speakers and the keypad does not work.
Improperly wired CAT5 cable.
Check that you are using the 568A or B wiring
standard (see section I: Crimping CAT5 wire). The
best way to know is to use a CAT5 tester. This can
also be tested with the BA-AWT1 Allport Tester.
When the keypad is plugged in, it just flashes and has
no functionality.
Duplicate address assigned to multiple keypads.
Each keypad must have a unique address set with
the Zone Address rotary switch located on the
back of the keypad (see section VII, Installing the
Elevate 6.6 keypads.
The amplifier is plugged in and turned on, but the
STAND BY LED is not lit and none of the system
functions work.
This is most likely caused by a blown fuse on the
power supply.
The fuse is accessed at the back of the amplifier
where the AC cord plugs in. It requires a 4 amp
time delay fuse.
All the keypads change when a source is selected
on only one.
The keypads are set for Source Grouping.
Pressing the MUTE and Source 3 button
simultaneously sets the Source Grouping feature.
This will cause multiple keypads to always share
the same source (see Section IX, Zone EQ and
Source Grouping on page 11).
With the keypads plugged in, the POWER LED on the
front of the amplifier will not turn on.
One or more improperly wired CAT5 cables.
Make sure the amplifier is turned on. Test that the
POWER LED on the amplifier turns on when the
Network Cable is unplugged. Next, unplug all the
CAT5 cables from the Allport and plug them back
in one at a time until the bad cable(s) is
discovered.
The IR repeater does not properly control the audio
source equipment.
One or more of the IR emitters are not properly
placed over the IR receiver on the audio source
equipment, or the IR output on the Elevate 6.6 does
not correspond with the audio equipment you are
controlling.
Reposition the LED end of the emitter on the face
of the source equipment, so it is flashing directly
over that source’s IR receiver. Make sure that
the emitter plugged into IR Output #1 is actually
going to source #1 , and so on for sources 2-6.

Addendum
Control Interface Description Document for the Breatheaudio BA-6640 Main Unit
Revision E (for Breatheaudio BA-6640 Mark II systems only) June 8, 2006
DB9M PORT PINOUTS:
Breatheaudio Transmit to System Controller on pin 2.
Breatheaudio Receive from System Controller on pin 3.
Ground on pin 5.
SERIAL PORT PARAMETERS: RS232, RTS/CTS or software flow control (XON/XOFF) NOT required, 9600 baud, 8N1
protocol.
RULES OF PROTOCOL:
(1) For alpha ASCII characters, always use UPPER CASE. In this document, actual characters in a string are presented in
BOLD type.
(2) All numerical fields are coded as ASCII digit characters.
(3) Each Command string is STARTED with an ASCII “*” character and terminated by a <CR> character (0D hexadecimal).
Each response string issued by the BA-6640 will START with an ASCII “#” and be terminated with a <CR> character
(0D hexadecimal).
(4) If a command has an error in it (does not adhere to exact command syntax), the BA-6640 will respond with a “#?<CR>”
string.
(5) Whenever queuing multiple commands to the BA-6640, the host program should pause for 50 milliseconds between
commands to prevent buffer overruns.
NUVO POWER-ON STATE:
(1) Each zone is OFF until ON command is received.
(2) Each zone's ZoneSet status will be as set by the special key combination settings as detailed in the owner's manual.
If no keypad is connected with a given zone address, then ZoneSet will default to:
A. OR0 (No override)
B. BASS+0 (Bass FLAT)
C. TREB+0 (Treble FLAT)
D. GRP0 (SOURCE GROUPING OFF)
E. VRST1 (VOLUME RESET TO 50 dB ON)
If these zone settings are overridden by the commands which follow in this document, the overridden values will reset
to the default values above upon cycling power on the Main Unit.
(3) For the first four seconds after power-on, a series of non-control related characters will be issued at a wide range of
baud rates. These are necessary queries to a program that may be running on a connected PC for the purpose of
Firmware field upgrades. They should be ignored by the host control system.
NON-VOLATILE COMMANDS AND ASSOCIATED RESPONSES With the exception of commands associated with setting the
IR carrier frequency, the effect of all commands is non-permanent; i.e. when power is cycled on the main unit, it will return to
default values. The commands that are an exception to this rule follow in this section.
*********************************************************************************
*IRSETSR<CR> Reads status of SOURCE IR carrier frequency settings.
COMMAND:
RESPONSE: #IRSET:aa,bb,cc,dd,ee,ff<CR> where:
aa = IR carrier frequency of SOURCE 1 ("38" or "56")
bb = carrier frequency of SOURCE 2 ("38" or "56")
cc = carrier frequency of SOURCE 3 ("38" or "56")
dd = carrier frequency of SOURCE 4 ("38" or "56")
ee = carrier frequency of SOURCE 5 ("38" or "56")
ff = carrier frequency of SOURCE 6 ("38" or "56")
17
NOTE: the Main Unit ships with the carrier frequency DEFAULT setting of 38 KHz for all six sources.
*********************************************************************************
COMMAND: *IRSETDF<CR> Restores DEFAULT SOURCE IR carrier frequency settings (38 KHz for all six sources).
RESPONSE: Same response as for #IRSETSR<CR>
*********************************************************************************
COMMAND: *SxIR56SET<CR> - sets SOURCE x to 56 KHz IR repeat carrier (x is 1 to 6).
RESPONSE: Same response as for #IRSETSR<CR>
*********************************************************************************
COMMAND: *SxIR38SET<CR> - sets SOURCE x to 38 KHz IR repeat carrier (x is 1 to 6).
RESPONSE: Same response as for #IRSETSR<CR>
*********************************************************************************
COMMAND/RESPONSE DESCRIPTIONS.
NOTE zone number field xx should ALWAYS include a lead zero (“0”) for zone numbers less than 10.
COMMAND: *ZxxCONSR<CR> - Connect STATUS REQUEST where xx is zone # from 1 to
12.
RESPONSE: #ZxxPWRppp,SRCs,GRPt,VOL-yy,Pzzz<CR> -ppp = “ON” (2 characters)
or “OFF” (3 characters)
The remaining fields are not included in the response if ppp is “OFF”:
-s = SOURCE NUMBER 1 to 6
-q = 0 if SOURCE GROUP is ON 1if SOURCE GROUP is OFF
-yy = level below max in dB: -00 to -78 dB (include lead 0 for all single-digit
values)
-yy = “MT” if in MUTE state
-yy = “XM” if external MUTE is being held
active
-zzz = “MST” if this zone is PARTY MASTER
-zzz = “SLV” if this zone is SLAVED to a
PARTY MASTER in another zone
-zzz = “OFF” if this zone is under LOCAL CONTROL only (either there is no
party master, or this zone has been manually
overridden)
This response will also be issued in response to pressing the ON/OFF, VOLUME, or SOURCE
keys on a KEYPAD. NOTE the response will be issued if a SOURCE key is pressed on a
zone that is powered OFF even though the key press has no effect on the system. It will be
output at every increment during a volume ramp initiated by HOLDING a VOLUME UP or
VOLUME DOWN key on a keypad. It will also be issued at every increment of a volume
ramp commanded by the *ZxxVOL+<CR> and *ZxxVOL-<CR> commands (see below).
The MUTE value will be asserted if a *ZxMTON<CR> command has been received, OR if the
volume is run all the way to the lowest possible point (volume off). An active EXTERNAL
MUTE input, however, will always override other volume response values with the “XM” response.
18
*********************************************************************************
COMMAND:
*ZxxSETSR<CR> ZoneSet STATUS REQUEST where xx is zone # from 1 to 12.
RESPONSE: #ZxxORp,BASSyy,TREByy,GRPq,VRSTu
-p = 1 if at least one of the permanent
values have been overridden* by an RS232 command.
-yy = EQ level, dB, 12 to +0 (flat) to
+12 in 2 dB increments if
set by RS232, -8, -6,-4, 0,
+4, +6, +8 if set on keypad.
-q = 0 if SOURCE GROUP is ON
1 if SOURCE GROUP is OFF
-u = 0 if VOLUME RESET is ON
1 if VOLUME RESET is OFF
*override set to 1 FOR THIS ZONE only if one of commands *ZxxBASSyy<CR>, *ZxxTREByy<CR>, or
*ZxxGRPq<CR> are issued (see descriptions below).
Once a parameter has been SET by one of these commands, it will remain UNTIL:
a. power is cycled on the Main Unit either with the front panel power switch or by removing AC power. Upon power-up,
the system will restore keypad permanent
settings (see the User Manual for details on how to perform these settings).
b. an operator manually sets one of these parameters from a keypad. This takes the unit out of OVERRIDE state, but
other RS232-commanded settings will remain until another RS232 command overrides them, or power is cycled.
This response is also issued whenever these parameters are set from a keypad.
*********************************************************************************
COMMAND:
*ZxxON<CR> Turn zone xx ON.
RESPONSE: Same response as for *ZxxCONSR<CR>
*********************************************************************************
COMMAND:
*ZxxOFF<CR> Turn zone xx OFF.
RESPONSE: Same response as for *ZxxCONSR<CR>
*********************************************************************************
COMMAND:
*ALLOFF<CR> Turn ALL zones OFF.
RESPONSE: #ALLOFF<CR>
This RESPONSE is also issued when ALL OFF is pressed on any KEYPAD.
*********************************************************************************
COMMAND:
*ALLV+<CR> Ramp ALL zones UP at a 10 dB/second rate in 1 dB steps.
RESPONSE: #ALLV+<CR>
The ramp action will be cancelled when all zones reach MAXIMUM volume, or when an *ALLHLD<CR> Command is received.
Note that to stop the ramp with this command before maximum volume, one reference zone must be periodically polled with a
*ZxxCONSR<CR> Command to determine when the desired volume point has been reached. Note that ramps in different
zones may start at different levels and will all ramp at the same rate.

COMMAND:
*ALLV-<CR> Ramp ALL zones DOWN at a 10 dB/second rate in 1 dB steps.
RESPONSE: #ALLV-<CR>
The ramp action will be cancelled when all zones reach MINIMUM (OFF) volume, or when an *ALLHLD<CR> Command is
received. Note that to stop the ramp with this command before the minimum volume, one reference zone must be periodically
polled with a *ZxxCONSR<CR> Command to determine when the desired volume point has been reached. Note that ramps in
different zones may start at different levels and will all ramp at the same rate.
