Figure 3.1 Priority Ducking Controls
and Connectors
3.2 Priority Ducking
If you want a microphone to duck (turn down) the background music or other
input signals, follow this procedure. On the back of the 140MPA,
1. Connect a push-to-talk mic contact to the Priority Connector (Figure 3.1).
Input 1 is the priority input for the amplified output, so Input 1 ducks the other
inputs. Threshold of activation depends on input voltage. Ducking does not
affect MOH outputs.
2. Adjust the VOX Threshold trim pot on the back of the unit to set how loud
the voice must be before ducking occurs. It can be set for no ducking.
3. Adjust the Priority Release trim pot for the desired ducking release time.
The Active Indicator lights when ducking is active.
3.3 Music-On-Hold
On the back of the unit, adjust either the 1V or 1W MOH Level Control to obtain
the desired level of Music-On-Hold on your phone system.

4 Troubleshooting
CONDITION: No sound.
CONDITION: No power to the
mixer-amplifier.
POSSIBLE REASON:
POSSIBLE REASON:
•
The mixer-amplifier’s Power switch is off.
•
The mixer-amplifier is not plugged into the
power receptacle.
•
The mixer-amplifier’s high-voltage power supply circuit breaker has tripped. Verify that the
AC mains voltage is correct, then press the
Reset button on the back panel.
•
The amplifier is in “fault” mode. A Fault status
can be triggered when one of the amplifier’s
protection circuits is activated. First disconnect
your speakers from the affected channel(s) one
by one to determine if one of the loads is
shorted. If an amplifier channel has a thermal
fault, there will be no indication on the front
panel, but the amp will recover after cooling. If
operation does not return to normal after
restarting your amp, press the Reset button on
the back of the unit. If that does not work, return
the unit to Crown or an authorized Crown Service Center for servicing.
•
No input signal.
•
Input signal level is very low.
[NO GRAPHIC IS NEEDED
HERE]
CONDITION: Distorted sound.
POSSIBLE REASON:
•
Input signal level is too high. Turn down your
input volume controls. NOTE: Your mixeramplifier should never be operated at a level
which causes the Clip LEDS to illuminate constantly.
•
Master volume level is too high. Turn it down
to about 3/4 of maximum level.
