TO OPERATE
If using microphones or external input jacks, plug these in first. Turn system on (rocker
switch located on the Control Panel on the rear of the unit near the word POWER). The
Battery Status light located on lower left hand portion of Control Panel will light with a
green color, indicating that power is available. (See Controls and Indicators section if
light is color other than green) Rotate VOLUME control knob clockwise to obtain
desired listening level throughout the coverage area.
If unit is not operating, refer to the Troubleshooting Table on pgs.12-13 for assistance.
Note: Channel 3 Volume Control also controls the Volume levels for the CD and Tape
Players.
Specific information concerning Controls and Indicators are covered in the next pages of
this manual.
AC POWER
The unit can also be operated with AC power. Use supplied power cord to plug unit into
110V AC household power if charging the batteries or using unit with AC power.
This device complies with Part 15 of FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two
conditions:
(1) This device may not cause harmful interference.
(2) This device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause
undesired operation.
When power switch is in the ON position, the BATTERY STATUS LED will be
illuminated. The color of the LED indicates the condition of the battery.
Green – adequately charged
Orange – battery Low
Red – battery must be recharged
To charge the batteries, connect the unit to 110VAC using the supplied power cord. For
full charge, allow battery to charge overnight. The red CHARGER ON LED will be
illuminated indicating battery is charging. Batteries will charge when unit is operating
with AC power. Unit will charge faster with the power in the “off” position.
The Travel Audio Pro must be left plugged in and charging
when not in use to maximize battery life. Recharging only
when the Battery Status LED is Orange or Red will shorten the
useful life of the internal batteries.

MICROPHONE/INSTRUMENT INPUTS:
There are 3 types of input jacks on your TRAVEL AUDIO PRO, as follows:
2 – 1/8” phone jacks (3.5 mm)
2 – RCA jacks
3 – XLR or ¼” combination jacks (this jack will accept either type)
There are two types of microphones the TRAVEL AUDIO PRO is designed for:
Dynamic
- for standard dynamic cartridge microphones
Condenser - for electret or condenser microphones, which require phantom
power (supplied from the amplifier)
There are three microphone channels (Channel 1, Channel 2, and Channel 3), and each
channel has individual volume controls. Each channel will accept any of the listed
7
8
microphone types, but only one microphone or instrument can be plugged into each
channel at a time.
You can add pre-recorded music during your presentations by using the internal CD or
tape player. In addition, external sources such as a computer or MP3 player can be used
by connecting to the RCA jacks. Channel 3 Volume Control controls the volume for units
connected to these inputs. It is recommended to use only one of these devices at a time.
The TRAVEL AUDIO PRO panel has ¼” phone jacks labeled ‘Record/Line Out’ and
‘Line Insert’ respectively. ‘Record/Line Out’ provides a feed from the Mixer stage, but
before this signal goes through the Output stage. In other words, this signal is not affected
by settings on the music/voice switch, treble, bass & master volume controls. It can be
used to drive an external recording device or another audio system.
The advantage to this configuration (pre-EQ & master volume) is that the external
system’s own EQ & volume settings can be separately adjusted to suit its environment
and the two systems do not interact with each other.
RECORD/LINE OUT:
This provides the output of the mixer. To record or connect to a house PA system,
External Equalizer, Audio Mixer, or Amplivox S1292 powered companion speaker,
connect the LINE OUT on the amplifier, to the input on an external recorder or PA
system. This jack functions the same as a signal “send”. (See Special Features Section)
LINE INSERT:
Use this jack to supply a signal directly to the power amp. This jack functions as a signal
“return”. Doing so will disconnect the mixer section of the TRAVEL AUDIO PRO and
act as a power amplifier. See the “Special Features” section for more details. This is the
input to use for the return signal from the Output of the Equalizer, Audio Mixer or other
type of audio equipment connected in the paragraph above. (See Special Features
Section)
EXTERNAL SPEAKER OUTPUT:
This input allows for the use of an extra non-powered speaker. Care must be taken when
using an external speaker. The speaker must be of suitable power handling and
impedance. (100 Watts peak at 4 ohms)
The ‘Line Insert’ jack works in two ways. When no plug is inserted it internally connects
the Mixer to the Output. However, when a plug is inserted it disconnects the Mixer from
the Output, replacing it with the external audio signal from the device the plug’s cable is
attached to. In this configuration, the TRAVEL AUDIO PRO Output stage can be used to
amplify a feed from an external mixer or playback device. For instance, assume a
facility’s main meeting room has a built-in sound system, but the adjoining room for the
overflow crowd has no system. A ‘Line Out’ feed from the house system could be
plugged into the ‘Line Insert’ jack of a TRAVEL AUDIO PRO located in the overflow
room. The TRAVEL AUDIO PRO’s EQ & master volume can then be adjusted to suit
the overflow room’s conditions without any effect on the main system.
The other way this pair of jacks can be used is to insert an external device such as a
graphic equalizer, echo/reverb machine or other audio processing device between the
Mixer and Output stages of the TRAVEL AUDIO PRO. The ‘Record/Line Out’ on the
‘905 connects to the ‘Line In’ of the external device and its ‘Line Out’ connects to the
‘905 ‘Line Insert’. Remember from the above discussion that a plug in the ‘Line Insert’
jack breaks the direct internal connection from the Mixer so in effect the external device
is electrically inserted between the 2 stages and becomes a functional block of the
TRAVEL AUDIO PRO.
FUSES
CAUTION: Improper speaker selection could result in equipment
damage or fire.
SPECIAL FEATURES

source.
• Turn down input source (such as
keyboards, etc.) since the output of
some devices may be too high
• Check for debris on speaker cone
(sand, etc.)
• Bass too high
• Treble too low
• “Feedback” occurs when a
microphone is too close to the
speaker or gain is too high. Move
microphone farther away from
speakers and/or turn down channel
gain.
• check volume levels for each
channel and main volume
• if using wireless, be sure
receiver(s)
