Gold Seal Series Amplifiers
Models GS-35, GS-60, GS-100, GS-150, GS-250
The Bogen Gold Seal Series amplifiers are an extraordinary addition to Bogen's line of quality audio amplifiers. Designed
with the sound contractor in mind, they provide unparalleled flexibility and versatility, without the need for expensive addon modules.
Unlike other typical amplifier lines, the professional sound contractor need not purchase a higher-powered amplifier just to
get more extensive features or flexibility. Each of the Gold Seal Series amplifiers — 250W, 150W, 100W, 60W and 35 W
models — incorporate the exact same set of features.
In addition to its extensive input flexibility, the Gold Seal Series amplifiers offer a combination of features not found in any
other commercial amplifier.

Input Connections
Remote Volume Control
Precedence Connections
If remote volume control is desired, connect the Bogen
accessory GS-RVC remote volume control to the
screw terminals marked REMOTE MSTR. Wire length
can be up to 1000 feet using 22 gauge wire.
Precedence connections allow any combination of
inputs to be completely muted with a contact closure.
Closing a contact across any of the precedence terminals and the PREC COM 1 terminal will mute that
input. A customer-supplied normally-open SPST
switch, push-to-talk switch, microphone switch, relay
or telephone system contact can be used to provide
the closure.
Note: Activating the precedence control for Aux
inputs completely mutes the input signal. The
VAR MUTE control has no effect when muting
inputs using precedence control.
7
Output Connections
Output Terminal Strip
To Power Amp
The Gold Seal Series amplifier
may be used to drive an external
power amplifier (can only be
used with unbalanced high
impedance inputs).
4Ω Output LINK shorting clip
Note: Shorting clip between GND/COM on the
speaker output terminals strip must be installed to
use this feature.
Shorting Clip - Leave for unbalanced lines.
Remove for balanced lines
Speaker systems are connected directly to the speaker output terminals on the rear panel. Connect one
speaker lead to the COM terminal and the other to the
terminal corresponding to the impedance of the speaker system. Select only one of the output types.
Pre Out/Power In Jacks
These jacks permit the insertion
of signal processing equipment
into the signal path between the
preamp output and the power
amp input. The LINK switch
should be in the IN position for
normal operation. When using
external signal processing
equipment, place the switch in
the OUT position and connect
PRE OUT to the signal processing equipment’s input. Connect
the POWER IN to the signal
processing equipment’s output.
For ground-referenced output operation (unbalanced
systems), leave the shorting clip between COM and
GND. For special applications that require floating outputs (balanced systems), remove the shorting clip
between COM and GND.
To use the DIRECT OUT (4-ohm) output, remove the
shorting clip across the LINK terminals and connect
one lead to the 4Ω terminal and the other to the GND
terminal. The GND/COM shorting clip should remain in
place.
Tape Out
The TAPE OUT jack provides a
line level output to feed a tape
recorder. The output is not
effected by the Master volume
control or EQ, however, the Locut filter does affect the microphone inputs.
Note:The WMT-1A and TO PWR AMP outputs
cannot be used if speaker GND/COM shorting
clip is not installed.
WMT-1A
This RCA output jack, when used
with a Bogen WMT-1A Line
Matching Transformer accessory
provides a 600 ohm output to feed
a remote amplifier or a telephone
line. Refer to the instructions provided with the WMT-1A accessory
for connection information.
Note: Shorting clip between GND/COM on the
speaker output terminals strip must be installed to
use this feature.
8
Operation
Power Switch
The rear panel AX adjustment controls
the mix of the Aphex effect with the audio
signal. Counterclockwise rotation of the
control minimizes the Aphex effect.
Clockwise rotation of the control maximizes the Aphex effect.
The POWER switch applies
power to the unit. The switch
will illuminate when power is
on.
Dual Function Acoustic Equalizer
Individual Volume
Controls
The unique dual-function equalizer can be used for
acoustic shaping or for feedback control.
Each input is controlled by an individual volume control.
The overall volume is controlled by the
MASTER control.
Lo-Cut Filter
Note: When the switch is placed in the OUT position, the equalizer is bypassed for a flat response.
The Lo-Cut filter on the rear panel
provides 3dB attenuation @ 65Hz
on the microphone inputs. This
helps reduce mic breath pop, wind
noise and rumble.
Acoustic Shaping Mode
When the switch is set in the ACOUSTIC EQ position,
full range equalization (10 bands on 1 octave centers
starting at 62.5Hz) is provided with a boost/cut of
12dB. In this mode, the equalizer can be used to compensate for room acoustics, or to satisfy the listening
preference of the user.
Contour Pushbutton Switch
This switch enables or bypasses
the variable loudness contour.
This feature only effects the Aux
inputs.
Feedback Control Mode
This feature is designed to improve richness of sound
by restoring the high and low frequencies that the ear
is insensitive to at low volume levels. The effect diminishes as volume is increased.
When the switch is placed in the FEEDBACK CONTROL position, the equalizer can be used to reduce
feedback and increase the effective gain of the system.
Aphex Aural Exciter
In feedback control mode the equalizer provides
increased control of frequencies between 125Hz and
8KHz. The 10 bands are located on 2/3 octave centers with 12dB cut/boost on each band.
The front panel APHEX AURAL
EXCITER pushbutton enables or
bypasses the Aphex Aural
Exciter feature. This feature
effects all inputs when enabled.
This audio enhancement system recreates the presence and realism that is lost in the audio amplification
process, by regenerating the harmonics usually lost
through amplification. This results in increased presence and clarity, increased intelligibility, greater perceived loudness (without adding extra power), and
reduced listener fatigue.

Operation
Telephone Paging Control
VOX
The MIC 5/Tel volume control on the front panel controls the volume of the telephone paging input when
the control is set to the Tel mode (See page 6 for information on setting the Tel input mode).
The telephone page input features
voice activated Aux muting. This
feature always mutes AUX 2 and
only mutes AUX 1 when the
AUX1/MIC 6 is set in that position.
The Tel input mode uses voice activated triggering for
muting the AUX inputs and automatic level control for
providing constant paging level. To optimize Tel input
performance the ALC control may need to be adjusted.
The VOX control should be set so that only the
desired signal is above the threshold level, while
unwanted noise or signal is below it.
ALC
The telephone page input features an
automatic level control (ALC) which
compensates for different voice levels
and speaking styles of the individuals
using the system. The amplifier is
shipped with this control in the OFF
(max. counterclockwise) position.
To adjust the ALC:
1.Rotate the MIC 5/TEL and MASTER controls to the
highest level likely to be used.
2.Speak softly and distinctly into the telephone mouthpiece while adjusting the MIC 5/TEL volume control
to the desired output level.
3.Speak in a loud voice directly into the telephone
mouthpiece while rotating the ALC control clockwise
to the point where the output of the amplifier is
reduced to the same level as that obtained in
Step 2.
4.The MIC 5/TEL and MASTER controls can be used
to vary the overall volume without upsetting the ALC
adjustment.
To adjust the sensitivity of the circuit:
1. Rotate the VOX control fully clockwise. While making a public address announcement and talking at a
low level, the sound should not be choppy or missing parts of words. If it is choppy or intelligibility is
poor, rotate control counterclockwise to the point
where the sound is clear and crisp (but not to the
maximum counterclockwise position).
2. If the background music shuts down when no page
is in progress, rotate the control counterclockwise
until the music will not shut down when no page is
in progress.
VAR MUTE
The VAR MUTE control mutes the
Aux input(s) only during telephone
pages.
The control allows the user to select from 4 levels of
muting: 1 = -60dB, 2 = -21dB, 3 = -10dB, 4 = 0dB.
10
Troubleshooting
Amplifier will not turn ON.
On the GS-35, GS-60, GS-100 and GS-150, depress the
circuit breaker.
On the GS-250, check the fuse. Replace fuse only with
same type and rating.
No output on 70V, 25CT, or 25V.
Check that the LINK switch on the rear panel is in the IN
position or external signal-processing equipment, if used,
is functioning
Make sure that the shorting clip on the DIRECT OUT 4Ω
output is in place.
No telephone output.
Make sure that the MIC 5/TEL switch is in the TEL position.
When connecting the telephone Tip & Ring, make sure to
use the two outside terminals and not the center terminal
(GND).
Aux input will not mute with
telephone page.
Check that the VAR MUTE control is not set to 4 (0dB).
This control adjusts the level of the background music
when making a page. See page 10.
Microphone squeals or hums when
using the 3-pin connectors but not
when using screw terminals.
Check your wiring connections for the 3-pin connector.
Pin 1 is the shield connection. Pins 2 and 3 connect
to high and low leads on the mic cable.
Condenser Mic will not work.
Make sure that phantom power switch (MIC 1 - 4) is on.
See page 6.
Mic 5 and 6 use circuit board jumper. See page 6.

Bogen Service
Caution
There are no user-serviceable parts within the
amplifier. Have all internal servicing performed by
a qualified technician. The warranty may become
void if repairs are performed by other than the
Bogen Factory Service Department.
The Bogen Gold Seal Series Amplifier is covered by a
3-year warranty and overnight installation-site replacement program (see below). If you encounter difficulty
with your Bogen Gold Seal amplifier, please do not
hesitate to ask our advice or assistance. Information
can be obtained by calling our Application Engineering
Department or Factory Service Department at (201)
934-8500.
Please be sure to fill out and return the product registration card included with this unit.
Warranty Service
If you are shipping the unit for a warranty repair, pack
it in the original shipping container or similar container
and ship prepaid via any responsible carrier. Include a
letter stating the problem and proof of purchase showing the purchase date. The amplifier will be promptly
repaired and returned to you freight prepaid while in
warranty.
Service After Warranty Has Expired
If the amplifier requires service after the warranty has
expired, ship it to us as per above, along with a letter
giving us your name and address. We will examine the
unit and contact you with an estimate of repairs before
any repair is made. Return shipment of equipment not
in warranty will be at the expense of the owner.
Best results are obtained when you:
• Read the User’s Guide before operating
• Ensure all input and output wiring is correctly
installed. If using the 4-ohm output, be sure to
remove the shorting clip in the LINK position (see
instructions on page 7).
• Ensure that the LINK switch (see the section on
PRE OUT/POWER IN JACKS on page 7) is in the
IN position when not using external signal processing equipment.
For warranty service, refer to the product registration
card. Our customer service support center can be
reached at (201) 934-8500, extension 1310, weekdays
