»» Outdoor Antenna Grounding - If an outside antenna is connected to the receiver, be sure the antenna system
is grounded so as to provide some protection against voltage surges and built up static charges. Section 810 of
the National Electrical Code. ANSI/NFPA No. 70-1984, provides information with respect to proper grounding
of the mast and supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to an antenna discharge unit, connection to
grounding electrodes and requirements for the grounding electrode. (See Figure 1)
Notes
a. Use No. 10 AWG copper or No. 8 AWG aluminum or No. 17 AWG copperplate steel or bronze wire, or larger as ground
wires for both mast and lead-in.
b. Secure lead-in wire from antenna to antenna discharge unit and mast ground wire to house with stand-off
insulators, space from 4 feet (1.22 meters) to 6 feet (1.83 meters) apart
c. Mount antenna discharge unit close as possible to where lead-in enters house.
An outside antenna system should not be located in the vicinity of overhead power lines or other electric light or
power circuits, or where it can fall into such power lines or circuits. When installing an outside antenna system,
extreme care should be taken to keep from touching such power lines or circuits as contact with them might be
fatal.
»» Object and Liquid Entry - Care should be
taken so that objects do not fall and liquids
are not spilled into the enclosure through
openings.

Battery CAUTIONS
When inserting the batteries make sure not to damage the springs
on the battery’s terminals.
Do not use any batteries other than the ones specifed. Also, do
not use a new battery together with an old one.
When loading the batteries into the remote control, set them in the
proper direction as indicated by the polarity marks ( and )
Do not heat batteries, disassemble them, or throw them into
flames or water.
Batteries may have different voltages, even if they are the same
size and shape. Do not use different types of batteries together.
To prevent leakage of battery fluid, remove the batteries if you do
not plan to use the remote control for a long period of time
(3 months or more). If the fluid should leak, clean it carefully from
the inside of the case, then insert new batteries. If a battery
should leak and the fluid should get on your skin, wash your hands
thouroughly with water.
Remote Control Range
The remote has a maximum range of
approximately 10 meters (33 feet) across an
angle of about +/- 30 degrees. The range will
diminish at wider angles and in the presence
of bright sunlight. The remote must have an
unobstructed visual path to the sensor for
proper operation.
In rare cases remote controls from other
equipment may interfere with each other.
Avoid using remotes for other equipment close
to the unit if they cause interference.
Replace the batteries when you notice a
decrease in the operating range of the remote.

USING THE ALARMS
The Alarms can be used in the same way as with any common
alarm clock. The programmed alarms will sound daily if the alarms
are in their active mode. The programmed alarm times will remain
unchanged unless they are reprogrammed or if the power fails. The
two alarms are independent and can be used together with each alarm
programmed for a different time. The alarms can be programmed to
have different alert sources, such as the Radio, Aux, Buzzer, CD, or
USB. The default alert is the Radio. The alert Buzzer sound for Alarm1
is different than Alarm2. Alarm2 has a higher frequency (pitch) beeper.
People with high frequency hearing loss may have a difficult time
hearing the Alarm2 Buzzer. The Buzzer (Beeper) alert sound is emitted
from all active speakers.

Numeric Keypad
The remote control of the IWSYS3 has a numeric keypad
that allows direct access to
radio stations and audio tracks.
1, 2, or 3 digit numbers can be
entered depending on the 10+
selection .
One dash allows you to enter one digit
Numeric Keypad
Pressing the 10+ button
changes the display 20 to show 1, 2, or 3 dashes. The number of
dashes displayed represents the number of digits that must be
entered on the Numeric Keypad.
When 1 dash is displayed then a single digit must be entered.
(Radio Station Presets 1 - 9 and Tracks 1 - 9 can be accessed.)
When 2 dashes are displayed then two digits must be entered.
(Radio Station Presets 01 - 30 and Tracks 01 - 99 can be accessed.)
When 3 dashes are displayed then three digits must be entered.
(Radio Station Presets 001 - 030 and Tracks 001 - 999 can be
accessed.)
Two dashes allows you to enter two digits
Each press of the 10+ button will change the number of displayed
dashes. In most cases the 2-digit mode, (pressing the button until
two dashes are displayed), is the most useful because it allows for
access of single and double digit radio presets and audio tracks.
For example: If the system is in 2-dash mode then entering 05 on
the keypad will access either Radio Preset number 5 or Audio Track
5, depending on which input is actively playing. Similarly, pressing
15 on the keypad will access either Radio Preset 15 or Audio Track
15. If the system were in 3-digit mode then 005 or 015 would need
to be entered to access the same Preset or Track. If the system
were in 1-digit mode then Preset or Track 5 could be accessed but
not 15. It would be necessary to first increment the 10+ selection
to access Preset or Track 15.
Three dashes allows you to enter three digits
Note: The 10+ function will not need to be used often since the IWSYS3 will retain the last entry and remain in either 1, 2, or 3-digit
mode until the 10+ button is pressed again.
I Sleep Timer
Use this function to activate (or deactivate) the Sleep Timer
function. When the Sleep Timer function is active the IW-SYS3 will turn itself off automatically after the time period
that is set. The available countdown times are 90, 80, 70, 60, 50, 40, 30, 20, and 10 minutes. This function is handy
when you want to listen to a program when falling asleep.
Activating the Sleep function:
To activate the Sleep Timer, press the Sleep button. When this button is pressed for the first time, the sleep timer
will be activated and Sleep 90 will be displayed.
will flash above the operation display indicating that you are
20 IW-SYS3: In-Wall Audio System
Rev. A
AM / FM / CD / AUX / USB
in the Sleep Timer programming mode. Each press of the Sleep button while in the programming mode will decrease the
time by 10 minutes. To exit the programming mode and start Sleep timer, just wait 5 seconds until the
indicator
stops flashing. The
indicator will then be displayed steadily indicating that the IW-SYS3 is in Sleep mode. Note:
The countdown is internal to the system and is not displayed.
Turning off the Sleep function:
Pressing the button when the system is in Sleep mode will deactivate the Sleep function. The
indicator will
disappear when deactivated. If you’ve accidentally activated the Sleep timer, wait 5 seconds until the
indicator
stops flashing and press the Sleep button again. This will disable (turn off) the timer.
Troubleshooting
Issue
Possible Solutions
No Power
If the clock readout is visible then the unit is receiving power but may not be turning on. Try
pressing the power button on front of the unit. If this does not work then try pressing the
power button on the remote. If there is no clock readout visible then check the circuit breaker
to ensure the circuit has power. If the unit is connected to a GFCI protected circuit then the
GFCI may need to be reset. If neither of these possible solutions worked then contact the
manufacturer or the place of purchase.
Distortion at high
volume
Try turning down the bass. If the bass level is flat (at 0) then you may need to turn down the
volume. Try turning the balance to the one side. If the bass is stronger with only one speaker
playing then the speakers are likely wired out of phase. Review the section on "Speaker
Connections" within this manual. The IW-SYS3 is not a high power device. It is designed for
background level sound. Higher efficiency speakers may be a possible solution.
Remote does not
operate
Try installing new batteries in the remote. Direct or bright sunlight may be shining on the
sensor and disabling it.
Display is dificult

Disc will not eject
Turn on the power and press the eject button on the front panel that is located to the right of
the CD slot. Try inserting a disc to ensure that a disc is inside the unit. If neither of these work
then contact the manufacturer or the place of purchase.
ERROR is displayed
The operation that you are trying to perform is not supported in the present mode.
Constant audible hum
In most cases this condition occurs when the IW-SYS3 is connected to a secondary device,
usually through the Auxilliary input or Preamp Output jacks. The problem is usually traceable
to a cable TV connection that is not properly grounded and is causing a ground loop. If
disconnection of the cable from your other equipment stops the hum then the Cable Television
company should be contacted to correct the issue. If they are unable to resolve the issue then
it may be necessary to place line isolation transformers between the IW-SYS3 and the other
equipment.
Parts are missing
Contact the manufacturer or the place of purchase to order the missing parts.

Connecting FM Antenna
Secure the two leads of the 300-ohm FM dipole antenna

balun onto the F-style 75-ohm FM antenna jack as shown
below. Extend the antenna within the wall if it was not
previously installed.
These should be the only antennas required for good AM &
FM radio reception. Should you live is a difficult reception
area or should the building’s structure inhibit
good radio reception then an
FM
AN
external antenna can be
T
used. This is described
in the following section.
External Antenna Installation
To improve radio reception external antennas can be used. Before committing to the cost and difficulty of external
antennas it is advisable to try moving the antennas within the wall to see if a suitable position can be obtained. Moving
the antenna wires up the wall with a non-metallic object will generally yield better reception. If this does not yield the
desired results then an attic-mounted antenna will likely work.
If an attic-mounted antenna is to be installed it is recommended that the installation be performed by a qualified
person(s). Extending the length of the AM wire with a single conductor can improve reception. For the FM antenna
it is recommended that a coaxial cable be run to the attic space and that the dipole antenna be mounted in the attic
space (if available) and connected to the coaxial cable using a female-to-female “barrel” F-connector. Alternatively
an omnidirectional or directional FM antenna (depending on location) may be necessary. Should an outdoor antenna
be necessary then it is important that it be installed properly by a qualified person(s). Outdoor antennas require
special safety precautions and proper grounding to prevent electrical shock and damage to the system from static
discharge and lightning. More information is available in the first section of this manual entitled, IMPORTANT SAFETY
INSTRUCTIONS.
Notes:
1. When installing an external antenna, pay attention to the antenna safety instructions in

Speaker Connections

The IW-SYS3 has two internal stereo amplifiers and two-pairs of outputs for speakers, Main Speaker Pair
A (BASE) & Auxiliary Speaker Pair B. Speaker Pair A is the primary speaker output and it is best used for
speakers installed close to the system. Auxiliary Speaker Pair B is an independent speaker output for
providing sound to another location(s). Speaker Pair A & Speaker Pair B provide identical output but with
independent volume adjustments 23 24 , and Speaker Pair B also provides paging output, (PAGE button 4 ). We
recommend 18 gauge minimum wire size be used for speaker connection. 16 gauge, which is larger, is preferable.
The IW-SYS3 will handle up to four 8-ohm speakers per channel.
To connect a speaker to the system:
1. Strip back approximately ½” (13mm) of insulation from each of the conductors of the speaker cable.
2. Ensure the terminal latches are open, (flipped away from the hole).
3. Insert the conductors into the appropriate holes ensuring that proper polarity is maintained, “+” wire to the
“+” terminal and “-” wire to the “-” terminal. Speaker pairs that are wired out of phase will exhibit reduced or
little bass output.
4. Flip the latch toward the wire to secure it.
5. Repeat the above steps for the other speakers in the system.
When multiple pairs of speakers are connected to a single output, the wires should be connected in parallel
(not series). The wires that share a connection may often be twisted together and inserted together in the same
hole. Should the combined wires be too large then they can be connected together to a pigtail with wire nuts.
The pigtail should then be connected to the amplifier outputs.
Note: If you use multiple speakers, the speakers should be connected in parallel to maintain an impedance
of not less than 2 ohms. It is common to have Autoformer-type volume controls installed in each room where
there is a pair of speakers. The autoformer controls permit the speaker volume to be adjusted independently
in each room. If the volume controls have impedance multiplication capability, it is recommended that they be
set to 1X (unity multiplication) except where the combined load impedance on the amplifier is less than 2 ohms.
This scenario is unlikely except in rare installations, such as a commercial installation where light background
music is desired throughout multiple rooms.
Contact a professional if you lack the expertise and are not comfortable with the installation process.

Mounting Instructions
CAUTION
The IW-SYS3 should not be
installed in an exterior wall.
!
1. The IW-SYS3 should only be installed in an interior wall. Use a “stud finder” to locate the positions of the
studs.
2. Assess the wall area for possible concealed obstructions such as wiring, plumbing, heating ducts, etc. These
might be used in adjacent rooms or on other floors in multi-level homes.
3. Inspect the backside of the wall, the attic, and/or the crawl space if available for clues to possible
obstructions. Use inspection holes with inspection tools (camera, mirror, flashlight, etc.) if necessary.
4. Use the Mounting Dimensions provided to mark the location of the cut-out, ensuring that it is level.
5. Using the proper tool, cut the appropriate sized hole in the wall. On drywall, clean cuts can be made with a
drywall saw.
6. If the wiring has not yet been run, do so now that you have access to the wall's interior.
7. Mark the 4 attachment holes and predrill them. 7/64" (2.8mm) is the suggested drill bit diameter. These holes
can be measured and marked per the dimensions but it is also possible to mark them using the IW-SYS3. To
do it this way, position the IW-SYS3 on the wall in the hole that was cut while ensuring that the unit is level
and resting near the bottom of the hole. Mark the mounting holes with a scribe or slender screwdriver. The
marking tool should be inserted through the 4 holes in the front of the unit.
8. Make the the audio output and antenna connections as shown on the previous pages and the AC electrical
connections as shown on the following pages.
9. Screw the IW-SYS3 to the wall using the 4 screws that are provided.
