WARRANTY REGISTRATION
Visit our website at www.anchoraudio.com and select “Warranty Registration”. Complete the online form to activate the six-year
limited warranty on your Xtreme sound system and two-year limited warranty for the CD player and microphones.
SETTING UP YOUR XTREME SOUND SYSTEM
We recommend placing your sound system between the audience and the presenter, facing the audience and raised above their
heads using a speaker stand or table. This benefits listeners in the rear of the crowd, minimizes the risk of overpowering those
in the front and helps prevent feedback by keeping microphone users behind the sound system.
SINGLE SYSTEM PLACEMENT
Place your unit along the least trafficked aisle pointing
towards the center of the audience.
NOTE: When using dual wireless, each microphone must be set to a different channel!
USING YOUR WIRELESS MICROPHONES
After you have set the transmitter channel (see above) you are ready to use your wireless microphone:
1. Body-pack transmitter users must insert the mic
plug into the transmitter jack marked MIC
2. Turn the transmitter power switch to ON
(The red LED will flash when the mic is turned on.
If the red LED stays on, the battery is low)
3. Turn the Xtreme power switch to ON
4. The RX indicators will light (only one indicator
will light at a time) when the wireless signal is
being transmitted and received
CAUTION: Harmful feedback may occur when walking in front of a sound system or
speaker with a wireless microphone. Always point microphone away from speakers!
REPLACE BATTERY - HANDHELD TRANSMITTER
1. Unscrew battery cover on bottom of microphone
REPLACE BATTERY - BODY-PACK TRANSMITTER
1. Slide open battery cover on front of transmitter
2. Replace old batteries with 2 fresh size ‘AA’
alkaline batteries
2. Replace old batteries with 2 fresh size ‘AA’
alkaline batteries
3. Replace battery cover and tighten firmly
3. Replace battery cover by sliding firmly into place
MULTIPLE SYSTEM PLACEMENT
Place units along aisles pointing just off the audience
center line, over the crowds head. With the sound system
placed properly it should provide sufficient coverage.

NOTE: The line-output feature can also be used to send the signal to a
sound system in a different room or a separate recording device.
NOTE: Transmitter power must be OFF when changing batteries!

DIVERSITY WIRELESS BY ANCHOR AUDIO
FEEDBACK
Anchor Audio UHF wireless is a 16 channel, diversity wireless system that receives signals with two independent antennae.
With diversity wireless the receiver processes the stronger signal, effectively minimizing dropouts and interference from other
transmitting sources. The antennae are mounted internally so there are no obstructions or risk of damage.
Feedback, a howling noise or shrill sound, is self-generated by the sound system. It’s caused by a microphone picking up the sound
coming from the speaker and then re-amplifying it. Once a feedback loop starts it continues until the system is adjusted.
CHANNEL SELECTION - BUILT-IN RECEIVER
Select a channel, set the built-in receiver & microphone transmitter to that channel before useing your wireless system.
FEEDBACK CAUSES
• Microphone too close, pointing towards
or in front of speaker
1. Choose any available wireless channel/frequency from 1 thru 16 (see page 7 for transmitter setup instructions)
• Volume setting is too loud for room
2. Turn the Wireless Channel Selector Knob to the channel/frequency you choose in step 1
• Sound reflecting off hard surfaces
If you have two wireless receivers repeat above for the second receiver. Remember each receiver/transmitter pair must be set
to different channels for proper operation.
NOTE: Ongoing wireless interference? The frequency you selected may be in use by
other systems in the area! Change channels until you find a clear frequency!

CORRECT SYSTEM PLACEMENT
AVOIDING & ELIMINATING FEEDBACK
