DESCRIPTION
First of all, we would like to express our thanks and at the same time congratulate you on the decision to
buy one of our CONTRACTOR PRECISION SERIES power amplifiers.
Electro-Voice CONTRACTOR PRECISION SERIES amplifiers are made to meet the highest requirements of any on-the-road application. Thus they provide on-board protection against thermal and
capacitive overload, short-circuit and the occurrence of HF or DC at the output. Additionally, special
circuitry prevents the output-stage transistors from being damaged by Back-EMF. During soft start,
delayed switching of the power outputs is accomplished via relays and a limiter controls the initial current
inrush, preventing the mains fuse from being blown during the power-on operation.
The mechanical construction as well is carried out following the highest precision standards of the industry.
The robust steel chassis provides extreme rigidity and it is meant to live through any hard wearing condition
of a touring application. Thermal stability is guaranteed by two 4-Mode silently running fans that offer the
possibility to also use the amplifiers in a studio environment.
The extensive comparator circuitry constantly monitors the input and output signals and activates the
internal limiters whenever a non-linear operational state is encountered. This provides reliable protection
of the connected loudspeaker systems against overload and clipping. The sound quality of the CONTRACTOR PRECISON SERIES power amplifiers is superb. Using comprehensive dimensioned power
supply units with low-interference toroidal transformers gains a headroom that exceeds the nominal power
handling capacity by far. No V/I-Foldback-Limiter circuits are employed within the power amplifiers, making
it possible to operate the amps on complex loads up to ±90° phase angles without a problem.
The input facilities are carried out as balanced XLRF-type sockets while the Direct-Outs – on which the
carried-through signals are present – come as XLRM-type connectors. Using the Input Routing-switches
lets you determine if the CONTRACTOR PRECISION SERIES amplifiers are operated in DUAL (stereo)
or PARALLEL (monaural) mode; “mono-bridged” operation is also possible.
The dB-scaled level controls are to be found on the rear panel. These potentiometers guarantee precise
and reliable operation. The easy readable LED display offers quick optical information on the power
amplifiers’ momentary operational mode. For each channel individually the display shows whether they
are operational, a signal is present at the outputs, when the limiters are activated, and whether one of the
protection circuits has been engaged or not. The power outputs CANNEL A, CHANNEL B and BRIDGED
OUT are carried out as Speakon connectors. A ground-lift switch that separates the enclosure from the
appliance’s ground potential and therefore helps to eliminate ground noise loops and the mono bridged
mode switch are also located on the rear panel. In normal operation all CONTRACTOR PRECISION
SERIES power amplifiers can be used to drive loads down to 2 ohms; in bridged mode the minimal load
is 4 ohms. All amps are equipped with extremely silent running fans providing front-to-rear air circulation,
guaranteeing trouble-free operation even in smaller power amplifier rack systems.
Studying this owner’s manual carefully will provide you with further and more detailed information about
the CONTRACTOR PRECISION SERIES power amplifiers. Thus we recommend to keep on reading,
assuring you that the Electro-Voice CONTRACTOR PRECISION SERIES power amplifiers will provide
you with a lot of fun and satisfaction in your work.

FRONT PANEL
1. Level Control
To prevent unauthorized operation of the level controls on the CPS3 and CPS4, they are provided with
screwed-on protective cover lids. When shipped from the factory, the detented potentiometers are set to
their clockwise limits. Thus, the input signal is not attenuated. In case matching the input levels is required,
you first have to detach (unscrew) the cover lids to gain access to the potentiometers.
2. POWER ON INDICATION
This LED lights up when the mains switch is pressed. If it does not light up, the unit is not connected to
the mains or the mains fuse has blown.
3. INPUT INDICATION
This LED lights up if a signal is present at the power amplifier input. The indicator does not light up when
the input controls are turned down completely.
4. OUTPUT INDICATION
This LED lights up if a signal is present at the power amplifier output. The indicator goes off when the
speaker line has shorted or a protective circuit has been activated thus indicating that there is no signal
at the speaker output terminals.
5. LIMIT
This LED lights up if the limiter has been activated and the power amplifier is being operated at the clip
level. If the LED flashes briefly, this is not a cause for concern. If this LED is lit permanently, the volume
should be reduced to avoid overload damages to the connected loudspeaker systems.
6. PROTECT
When this LED lights up during operation, one of the protection circuits against over-temperature,
overload, shorted outputs, radio frequency interference or DC faults has been triggered. The cause of the
error e.g. a shorted loudspeaker line must be remedied. In case of overheating, wait a little until the
amplifier switches back to operating mode itself.
7. POWER Switch
The unit is switched on via the power switch. The loudspeaker outputs are switched on via delayed relays
so that no startup transients are audible. A current limiter prevents startup peaks on the mains line and
prevents the mains fuse from blowing.

POWER AMPLIFIER INPUTS
Parallel to the XLR-type inputs, output connectors are provided,
offering the opportunity to feed additional power amplifiers with the
same signal.
The inputs are electrically balanced with pin-assignment according to
the IEC 268 standard.
Pin-assignment of the XLR-type input connectors:
PIN 1:
PIN 2:
PIN 3:
SHIELD
a, +
b, -
Input sensitivity is factory set to 0 dBu.
The power amplifier can be set internally to +6dBu input sensitivity or
to +26dBu gain.
INPUT ROUTING
PARALLEL MONAURAL
Setting the selector switch to the PARALLEL/MONO position puts the
channel A and channel B inputs in electrically direct parallel configuration, leaving you still the possibility to control the channels’ level
settings separately, using the output controls A and B.
DUAL STEREO
When the selector switch is set to its DUAL/STEREO position both
channels are amplified individually.

REAR PANEL
POWER AMPLIFIER OUTPUT CONNECTORS
SPEAKON output connectors are provided for the power
amplifier channels A (left) and B (right).
The Bridged Out Connector for bridged operation is
sealed with a plastic cover to prevent connection errors.
LIMITER
The time constant of the built-in limiter to avoid overdriving is adjustable. Position “SLOW” is the factory preset
and this should also be the normal position.
If the power amplifier is used as a MID/HI-frequency
amplifier in active multi-way systems, the limiter switch
should be set to “FAST”.
If the power amplifier is used as LOW-frequency amplifier in active multi-way systems, the limiter switch should
be set to “SLOW”.
BRIDGED MODE
Slide switch to change from Normal Stereo mode to
Bridged mode. In Bridged mode the built-in power amplifiers operate in “push- pull” and the double output voltage
from channel A and B appears at the Bridged output
connector. The phases of Channel A and B are in opposite and therefore the individual channels must not be
used as loudspeaker outputs.
HI-LO-CUT FILTER
This filter attenuates subsonic and high frequency signals so that the power amplifiers are not modulated with
these signals. This switch should normally always be in
position ON. The OFF position is only for applications
where an upstream unit, e.g. a crossover or a equalizer,
has integrated HI-Cut and LO-Cut filters.
GROUNDLIFT SWITCH
Hum loops can be avoided with the groundlift switch. If
the power amplifier is operated together with other units
in one 19" rack, the switch should be in GROUNDED
position. If the power amplifier is used with units which
have different earthing potentials, the switch should be
adjusted to the UNGROUNDED position.
