Install the units in a suitable position. Use standard XLR cable to connect your units together via the XLR connector on the rear of the units. For longer cable we suggest a terminator at the last fixture. Assign a DMX address to each the unit using dipswitches. Turn on all units. Use DMX console to control your units. Master-Slave Operation Choose a unit to function as Master mode, set dipswitch to select Sound Active or AUTO mode. The others must be set to Slave mode. Use standard XLR microphone cable chain your units together via the XLR connector on the rear of the units. For longer cable runs we suggest a terminator at the last fixture. Turn on all units. The slave units will react the same as the master unit.
