1. Utilization
The amplifier DPA 4411 has been specially designed to ensure durable performance and reliable
operation of sound reinforcement systems with several independent loudspeaker lines. The DPA 4411 is
best suited for call and message transmission installations, alert systems, and for general music
applications in industrial enterprises, offices, multi-function halls and sport arenas, schools, churches,
hotels, hospitals, super markets, cruise ships, and similar applications.
2. Installation Notes
When installing or mounting the amplifier, it is important to make sure that unhindered air-flow from the
air inlets on the front to the air outlets on the rear of the appliance is guaranteed (see paragraph 10).
To maintain EMV disturbance-free operation, the use of shielded cable for all input, output and control
lines, except for mains supply and battery cords, is mandatory. When installed inside of metal housings
or rack systems, running unshielded output and control lines is possible. Cable screens have to be
connected to the enclosure or rack system ground potential.
The amplifier has to be protected against:
- dropping or splashing water
- direct sunlight
- high environmental temperatures or direct radiation of heat sources
- high humidity and moisture
- dust
- shock or vibration
It is not permissible to place containers filled with liquids - e. g. vases - ontop of the appliance
When moving the amplifier from cold into warm environments, condensation of its inner parts can
sometimes occur. If so, the appliance can be operated again after gaining the environmental temperature
(approximately after one hour).
If a solid object has fallen or liquid has leaked into the device, disconnect all connectors and get in contact
with an authorized DYNACORD service center. Do not operate the amplifier after such accidents.
When cleaning the amplifier’s outside enclosure, never use any cleaning sprays or detergents, because
of inflamability. The use of those liquids will damage the appliance.
3. Before Initial Operation
3.1 Mains Operation
When operated on mains power, use the included mains cord to connect the amplifier to a 230 V or 115
V 50/60 Hz wall outlet. Connect the cable’s other end to the appliance’s 3-pole machine-type socket (10).
Caution
The amplifier is factory-set to 230 V AC. To change the setting to 115 V AC, use the
voltage switch (12).
For the operation with 115 V AC, the mains fuse (11) has to be replaced by an 8 Ampère
slow-blow fuse with the label print “T8AL” (see also paragraph 12).
When correctly connected and with mains power present the green STANDBY indicator (4) will light. Now,
through sending the corresponding command via the serial interface of the Remote Module, it is possible
to start the amplifier from the PROMATRIX Manager DPM 4000 (see PROMATRIX handbook).
The POWER switch (9) on the rear of the amplifier – for bridging the starting relay – is meant for service
purposes only. It offers the possibility to operate the amplifier without remote start.
Note
The POWER switch (9) on the rear of the appliance is for service purposes only. Remote
power-off is not possible with the POWER switch set to ON. In this case, the STANDBY
indicator (4) provides no function.
The DPA 4411 is equipped with a cut-in delay of approximately 3 seconds to efficiently suppress power-on
noise. After this period of time and when no fault was detected, the green READY indicators (7) will light
(see paragraph 7.2).
23
3.2 Battery Operation 24 V DC
The amplifier DPA 4411 can either be operated on the AC mains or connected to an external 24 V battery
power source. Switching to battery operation is accomplished via internal relay.
The battery has to be connected to the corresponding socket (23) on the rear panel of the appliance using
insulated AMP flat connectors 6.3x0.8 mm. The amplifier is protected against confusion of poles.
Additional internal protection is provided through two miniature fuses – F502 and F503 – one per each
conductor (+ and -), which are located on the printed board assembly 85272 (see paragraph 12, diagram
2
11). For the DPA 4411 the battery cable’s diameter should be at least 2.5 mm and the cable length for
the single distance should not exceed 4.0 m (max. drop in voltage < 1V).
Caution
Operation of the DPA 4411 is solely allowable using batteries without grounding or
batteries with grounding of the negative pole. Operation with batteries with grounding of
the positive pole is not permissible.
4. Inputs INPUT 1 to INPUT 4
The inputs INPUT 1 to INPUT 4 (15) are electronically balanced. With a sensitivity of 775mV = 0dBu they
are meant for the connection of control amplifiers. For the case that floating inputs are needed, the inputs
are prepared for retrofitting input transformers.
Note
If a switch-contact is located between the control amplifier output and the power amplifier
input, switch clicks might become audible during switching. If this is the case, incorporating
input transformers (NRS 90208 - one per input) can solve the problem (see paragraph 9.3)
Parallel operation of INPUT 1 to INPUT 4 (15) is possible when using the ROUTING
switches (16). This allows to connect the input signal through to feed several power
amplifiers with the identical program. Use a permanent marker pen to mark the
needed setting of the ROUTING switches (16) next to the ROUTING switch
push-button symbol.

5. Outputs
5.1 POWER OUTPUT
All power outputs are balanced and floating. When factory-shipped, the outputs are pre-configured for the
connection of 100 V loudspeaker systems. Connection is achieved through plugging the supplied 8-pole
socket into the connection strip (19). Switching the output transformer allows to change the output voltage
to 70 V, 50 V or 20 V (see paragraph 8). When set to 20 V, operation of low impedance speakers with a
load of 4 ohms is possible.
Caution
During operation it is possible that the outputs of the POWER OUTPUT connector may
conduct dangerous voltage (>34 V in peaks). Therefore, observing applicable safety
regulations is mandatory when connecting and installing loudspeaker lines
(see also paragraph 9.2).
5.2 POWER OUTPUT for the connection of 100 V loudspeaker systems
The use of speaker systems with 100 V matching transformers is recommended to reduce the lack in
performance when the distance between amplifier and speaker systems exceeds 50 m. This m ethod also
offers an easy way to distribute the output power. The total power consumption of the maximum amount
of the connected speakers in the network has to match the amplifier’s overall output capacity of 100 watts
(connection impedance 100 ohms). The connection is accomplished via the 100 V output (19)
(see figure 3).
diagram 3 Connection of 100 V (70 V or 50 V) loudspeaker systems
5.3 POWER OUTPUT for the connection of low-impedance loudspeaker systems
When switching the output to 20 V, low-impedance speaker systems (4-16 ohms) can be connected to
the corresponding output (see diagram 4). Because of line attenuation, the distance between amplifier
and speaker systems should not exceed 50 m. It is of further importance that the overall impedance of
the speakers does not decline 4 ohms and that the individual power handling capacity of each speaker
is not exceeded.
diagram 4 Connection of low-impedance loudspeaker systems
25
Free combination of the DPA 4411’s power output voltages, including mixed 100 V and low impedance
(4 ohms) operation, is possible.
5.4 POWER OUTPUT 100 V - Double Output Power
If the output power of one output of the DPA 4411 is not sufficient to feed all cabinets within a speaker
network and dividing the speaker chain is not an option, it is possible to double the output power by
coupling the outputs of two amplifiers. In that case the amplifier inputs have to be paralleled and the
outputs are connected in series. For the connection of inputs, please refer to paragraph 4. For the
connection of the loudspeaker network, refer to diagram 5.
Coupling is possible under the following restrictions: only identical amplifiers or power amps can be
connected. Since doubling the output voltage comes along with serial connection, it is necessary to switch
the outputs of both amplifiers to 50 V (see also paragraph 8), resulting again in an overall output voltage
of 100 V. In this case the speaker chain’s minimum load impedance is 50 ohms // 50 nF. The input level
controls of the corresponding channels of the DPA 4411 have to be set to equal values (refer also to the
PROMATRIX handbook).
This results in the following output combinations with a single DPA 4411:
4 x 100 W or 2 x 100 W + 1 x 200 W or 2 x 200 W.
diagram 5
Possible output configuration of the DPA 4411
5.5 MONITOR output
The MONITOR output of the DPA 4411 is configured as monitor bus. It gets connected to thePROMATRIX
Manager DPM 4000 via the serial port REMOTE CONTROL (13). If a floating output is needed, the output
is prepared for retrofitting a monitor output transformer. In this case the extension NRS 90227 is necessary
(see paragraph 9.4). The low-impedance monitor output is electronically balanced. Therefore, the
connected cables may be up to approx. 200 m in length.
The PROMATRIX Manager DPM 4000 (see PROMATRIX handbook) offers connection for monitor
amplifiers; which can be set to input-monitoring or output-monitoring for the desired amplifier channel.
6. Integrated Remote Module
The integrated remote module of the power amplifier DPA 4411 provides the following functions:
•
•
•
•
input levels of INPUT 1 to INPUT 4 can be set via programmable audio level controls
reading level values of the audio level controls
setting level offsets 1 to 4 via virtual controllers
mute function 1 to 4 (via level controls)
26

• ground fault error flags reset
Note
Prior to the first operation of the amplifier DPA 4411, you have to set the amplifier address
using the two Hexadecimal Code switches ADDRESS (18) (refer to the PROMATRIX
handbook) and using a waterproof marker pen mark the setting in the ADDRESS label field
on the rear panel of the appliance.
By sending the corresponding command via the serial port REMOTE CONTROL (13) of the remote
module, this function is activated from the PROMATRIX Manager DPM 4000 (see PROMATRIX
handbook).
7. Indicators And Fault Notification
7.1 STANDBY Indicator
When correctly connected and with mains voltage and/or battery voltage present, the green STANDBY
indicator (4) lights.
7.2 READY Indicator
The power amplifier DPA 4411 provides a power-on delay of approximately 3 s to prevent switch clicks
from becoming audible. If after this period of time no faulty condition has been detected, the green READY
indicator (7) lights and the mute-relays pull. When thermal overload of the mains transformer or of one of
the power output stages is detected, the corresponding green READY indicator (7) will not light and the
according mute-relay drops. If, with the NRS 90206 extension installed the pilot-threshold (see paragraph
9.1) is declined, the corresponding green READY indicator (7) goes out but the amplifier stays operational
and a fault message gets transmitted to the PROMATRIX Manager DPM 4000.
7.3 PROTECT Indicator
In case of thermal overload of the mains transformer or of a power output stage is detected, the red
PROTECT indicator (5) will light. During thermal overload of the mains transformer, all mute-relays drop
while during thermal overload of a power output stage, only the according mute-relay drops. After the
mains transformer or the power amplifier have regained their normal temperature, the red PROTECT
indicator (5) automatically goes out and the appliance recovers normal operation mode. The faulty
condition could have been caused by either overload, too high environmental temperature, or by an error
in the ventilation system. A fault-message is transmitted to the PROMATRIX Manager DPM 4000.
27
7.4 GROUND FAULT Indicator
If, with built-in NRS 90207 a ground fault condition at one of the power outputs occurs, the corresponding
red GROUND FAULT indicator (6) lights and a fault-message is transmitted to the PROMATRIX Manager
DPM 4000. The power amplifier keeps up normal operation during the occurrence of this fault-type. After
solving the problem, the GROUND FAULT indicator (6) can be reset by pressing the TEST button (3) or
by sending the corresponding command via the serial port of the PROMATRIX Manager DPM 4000 (see
PROMATRIX handbook) (see paragraph 9.2).
7.5 Meter Instruments And CLIP Indicators
The green LED-indicator -13 dB and 0 dB (1) as well as the red LED-indicator CLIP (2) allow the precise
monitoring of output levels, providing the possibility to securely prevent distortion and clipping that could
lead to damaging the connected loudspeaker systems.
- When during program peaks the red CLIP-LED (2) lights briefly, the maximum distortion-free output
is gained.
- Whenever the CLIP-LED (2) lights continuously, the amplifier is driven into overdrive and the input level
should be reduced.
- Overload or short-circuit at the output is the cause for the green LED-indicator (1) to be out or only briefly
lit while at the same time the red CLIP-LED (2) blinks. In that case, please check the impedance of the
connected load.
Caution
During normal operation, the red CLIP-LED (2) should hardly light and if, than
only very briefly !
7.6 STATUS Indicator
The yellow STATUS-LED (14) that is located on the rear of the appliance lights briefly during normal
operation when the DPM 4000 addresses a query to the amplifier. For further information, please refer to
the PROMATRIX handbook.
8. Switching The Output Voltage (refer to qualified service personnel only!)
The DPA 4411 offers output voltages of either 20 V, 50 V, 70 V or 100 V. The output voltage is
factory-preset to 100 V. Switching the output voltage to 20 V, 50 V or 70 V should only be carried out by
qualified DYNACORD service personnel.
Caution
Unplug the mains cord and disconnect batteries before opening the appliance!
- for opening the appliance, please remove the 9 screws on the top of the appliance that lock the cover

9.1 NRS 90206 Pilot Ton Surveillance
Using the extension-kit NRS 90206 provides continuous monitoring (surveillance) of the individual
amplifier channels. This is achieved by sending an ultra low-level 19 kHz pilot tone through the device. It
enters the signal path post level controls, runs through the amplification stages and gets filtered out and
evaluated at the output. In case the result of this evaluation shows that the pilot dropped beneath a defined
threshold or is missing at all, the corresponding READY indicator AMP 1 - 4 (7) goes out but the power
amplifier upholds its normal operation. A fault-message is transmitted to the PROMATRIX Manager DPM
4000 (see PROMATRIX handbook). The extension-kit NRS 90206 comes as a plug-in board assembly
and consists of a 19 kHz tone-generator and four selective 19 kHz receivers with evaluation stage.
Caution
Unplug the mains cord and disconnect batteries before opening the appliance!
9.1.1 To Install The NRS 90206 Proceed As Follows (see diagram 9):
- for opening the appliance, please remove the 9 screws on the top of the appliance that lock the cover
plate.
- the NRS 90206 gets retrofitted on the printed board assembly 89019.1, which is located behind the input
printed board assembly 81331, in the front area, attached to the left side panel of the amplifier (in front
view).
- Be sure to first insert the included board-guides before installing the printed board assembly, assuring
the correct position of their guide grooves. The release lever of the guides marked “A” points to the top,
while the one of the guides marked “B” points downwards.
- the NRS 90206 extension-kit needs to be inserted with its printed side pointing to the top, until it firmly
locks in place. Make sure that the power resistors R917 to R920 that are located underneath the
NRS-printed board assembly do not touch this board.

9.1.2 Checking The Function Of The NRS 90206:
With built-in NRS 90206 and powered-on amplifier, the READY-indicators (7) have to light. Use the check
and reset-button TEST (3) to check the functioning of the pilot tone surveillance. When holding the
TEST-button pressed, the 19 kHz tone-generator is switched off, the READY-indicators (7) go out and a
fault-message is being transmitted to the PROMATRIX Manager DPM 4000 (see PROMATRIX handbook). Approximately 3 seconds after releasing the TEST-button, the READY-indicators (7) have to light
again.
9.2 NRS 90207 Ground Fault Surveillance
The VDE regulation DIN VDE 0800 has to be obeyed when planning and operating 100 V sound
reinforcement systems. Especially 100 V alert systems have to be in accordance with all protection
measures for class 3 appliances.
We recommend the use of the ground fault surveillance module NRS 90207 for floating speaker network
installations, offering surveillance of the network insulation. Error registration: A ground fault message
signals that a damaged cable has been detected – possibly resulting in an upcoming cable interruption –
or a wrongly connected cable, possibly resulting in malfunctioning. The information “ground fault” is
memorized as long as the amplifier is powered on or a loaded battery is connected, even for short-term
( > 5 s) ground faults. The fault-message is transmitted to the PROMATRIX Manager DPM 4000 (see
PROMATRIX handbook).
The NRS 90207 extension comes as a plug-in printed board assembly and consists of a monitoring circuit
with error-storage and display-driver for four 100 V outputs.
Caution
Unplug the mains cord and disconnect batteries before opening the appliance!
9.2.1 To Install The NRS 90207 Proceed As Follows (see diagram 9):
- for opening the appliance, please remove the 9 screws on the top of the appliance that lock the cover
plate.
- the NRS 90207 gets retrofitted on the printed board assembly 89019.1, which is located behind the input
printed board assembly 81331, in the front area, attached to the left side panel of the amplifier (in front
view).
- Be sure to first insert the included board-guides before installing the NRS 90207, assuring the correct
position of their guide grooves. The release lever of the guides marked “C” points to the top, while the
one of the guides marked “D” points downwards.
- the NRS 90207 extension-kit needs to be inserted with its printed side pointing to the top, until it firmly
locks in place. Make sure that the power resistors R917 to R920 that are located underneath the
NRS-printed board assembly do not touch this board.

9.2.2 Checking The Function Of The NRS 90207:
With built-in NRS 90207 and powered-on amplifier, the READY-indicators (7) have to light. When using
an external switch to shortcut one pole of the 100 V speaker network via a 47 k ohms resistor and the
safety earthing conductor for approximately 5 seconds, the corresponding GROUND FAULT indicator (6)
has to light. The fault-message is transmitted to the PROMATRIX Manager DPM 4000 (see PROMATRIX
handbook). After releasing the external switch, indication and message have to stay present. Use the
TEST-button (3) to reset the ground fault surveillance function.
9.3 NRS 90208 Input Transformer For Floating, Balanced Inputs
In case floating inputs are needed, the inputs of the DPA 4411 are prepared for retrofitting input
transformers; a separate NRS 90208 extension-kit is needed per input.
Note
Caution
If a switch-contact is located between the control amplifier output and the power amplifier
input, switch clicks might become audible during switching. If this is the case, incorporating
input transformers can solve the problem.

10. 19"-Flightcase Or 19"-Rack System Installation
Caution
Operating the DPA 4411 without cover-plate is not admissible.
When incorporating the DPA 4411 into a 19" flightcase or 19" rack system, make sure to leave room for
sufficient air-flow. Between the amplifier’s rear plate and the inside-wall of the surrounding enclosure has
to be at least 60 mm x 330 mm of space until up to the enclosures top or its ventilation gaps. At least 100
mm of space should be left above a rack system to guarantee sufficient air circulation. Since, during the
operation of the DPA 4411 the environmental temperature within the rack closet may increase by about
10° C, minding the maximum allowable temperature values for other equipment that is installed into the
same rack system or enclosure is of major importance.
Note
For trouble-free operation of the appliance, the maximum environmental temperature
of +40 °C is not to be exceeded.

11. Ground Lift Switch CIRCUIT ⊥ TO CHASSIS SWITCH
Using the ground lift switch CIRCUIT ⊥ TO CHASSIS SWITCH (22) lets you separate the audio signal
ground from the enclosure ground (safety earthing). This helps to solve problems with hum or noise without
jeopardizing safety standards. If several units with ground lift switch are installed in a common enclosure
or rack system, it is recommended to set the ground lift switches of all devices but one to “ungrounded”.
Set to “ungrounded”, the impedance between signal ground and enclosure is: 100 k ohms // 100 nF. It is
necessary to maintain the immunity from EMV.
