WIR 135 Listening System Instructions

Model WIR TX95 Transmitter, WIR RX8 Receiver

O

VERVIEW

Thank you for purchasing the WIR 135 Listening System from Williams Sound Corp. Anyone needing auditory assistance to overcome background noise, reverberation, or distance from the sound source can benefit from the WIR 135.

You can use the WIR 135 for listening to the TV or other audio equipment, or for hearing assistance in conference rooms. You can also use your RX8 Receiver in most facilities which have an infrared transmitter operating on 95 kHz, such as theaters, cinemas, or churches.

Infrared light behaves like visible light, so it is blocked by solid objects. This confines the signal to the room where the transmitter is located. The transmitter cannot be placed inside or behind anything except glass. The maximum operating distance is approximately 30 feet (9 m).

Ideally, the TX95 Transmitter should be at ear-level height or above. The infrared light pattern is much like a floodlight “cone” as it leaves the transmitter, with the best reception inside the cone.

Sunlight can cause infrared interference by reducing the operating distance. Thus, the system cannot be used outdoors and may not work properly inside if a lot of direct sunlight is present.

Closing drapes or blinds will help if sunlight is a problem.

Any number of receivers may be used with the TX95 Transmitter, but use only one transmitter in a room at the same time. Otherwise, interference between transmitters will occur.

You may also use the Audio Cable 3 supplied to connect the TX95 Transmitter directly to TV, inputs are mixed together. The Left or Right input jack may be used with a mono sound source.

When the Audio Inputs are used, the Mic input is disabled.

If you are using the TV Microphone 2 , plug it into the “Mic” jack on the TX95 as shown. Use the Velcro strip supplied to attach the microphone near the loudspeaker of your TV. The microphone will allow you to play the TV at lower volume for other listeners and will pick up other important sounds like the telephone or doorbell ringing.

The TX95 has an automatic shut-off feature that turns the Transmitter off several minutes after the audio signal is no longer present.

IFFICULTY

If the system does not seem to be functioning:

1. Make sure that your television is plugged in and turned on.

2. Make sure that the TX95 Transmitter is plugged in and correctly connected to the TV or VCR’s audio output.

3. If you’re using the TV Mic and not getting a signal: 1) Be sure the audio cable is not plugged into the TX95; 2) Try turning the TV volume up slightly; 3) Try positioning the TV mic directly over the TV speaker.

4. Make sure that the RX8 Receiver has a working battery.

5. Make sure you are not covering the RX8’s infrared “eye.” Remove any objects obstructing the line between the TX95 Transmitter and the

RX8 Receiver.

6. If you’ve installed the TX95 Transmitter other than on top of the TV, make sure that its front panel is facing the RX8 Receiver.

7. If the system still does not function, call your

Williams Sound Dealer.
