[Wiring Procedure]
Step 1. Wiring the supplied removable terminal plug.
1-1. Loosen the terminal screws to insert the wire.
1-2. Tighten the terminal screws.
Ensure that the wire does not break free when pulled. If
the wire does pull free, repeat the connection procedure
from the start.
Step 2. Insert the wired terminal plug into the corresponding
terminal block in the unit's rear panel.
Step 3. Tighten the fixing screws. (Speaker output terminals only)
• Do not reverse Steps 1 and 2. Poor contact may result if force is
applied to the unit's internal circuit board pins while the terminal
screws are being tightened.
• Use an appropriate type screwdriver for terminal plug wiring.
6.2. Input Connections
6.2.1. Line 1 input connections
6.3. Speaker Connections
Class 2 wiring may be used.
6.4. Remote Volume Connection
When a remove volume control is needed, wiring a 10K Ohms potentiometer to the 2-pin Remote Volume
Control Jack as shown below. Attenuating the value of the potentiometer will reduce the audio level. This
attenuation works for the audio signal after adjusted by its master volume control.
6.5. AC Power Connections
If necessary, this power receptacle can be replaced with flexible conduit adapter. For UL2043 certification, the
optional receptacle which can be directly connected AC wires with the screw terminals on the PCB is required.
For plenum space installation details, please refer to Appendix.
After completing all audio and control connections, connect the power supply, and check the power indicator.
When the heat sink temperature exceeds 130°C (266 °F), the protection circuit begins to operate to disconnect
the output from the circuit. The disconnected output is automatically restored as soon as the temperature
returns to the normal operating range.
Keep the amplifier over 10 cm (3.94") away from
objects that may obstruct air flow to prevent the
unit's internal temperature rise.
9.1. Input Sensitivity Selection
Output level is adjustable with individual -10dBV/-20dBV switch. For those audio source equipments which
always have relative high output level, such as CD players, please set the input sensitivity selection switch to
-10dBV position; otherwise, set to -20dBV position.
9.2. Output Volume Setting
Output level is adjustable with master volume control. For music play or announcement, adjust the proper
volume control or sensitivity so that the signal indicator lights intermittently. Note that the sound quality is
downgraded when the peak indicator remains lit.
When a Remove Volume Control is connected, attenuating the value of the potentiometer will reduce the
volume level. This attenuation works for the audio signal after adjusted by its master volume control.
