i-ceilings Powered Panels
Armstrong’s CS4000ME/Pwrd and PROME/
Pwrd models are powered versions of
the unique i-ceilings Sound Panel and
feature our Integrated Panel Amplifier - a
20W power amplifier pre-installed into the
i-ceilings panel.
i-ceilings Sound Panels can be supplied with a
wide range of tile finishes allowing the unit to be
installed invisibly in any Armstrong suspended
ceiling. i-ceilings are primarily designed for
use in AV and sound reinforcement systems.
The amplifier has one line level input allowing the connection of most audio
equipment having a line level output.
An external speaker output is also provided to allow an additional panel or
independent low impedance speaker to be driven from the amplifier.
The unit is fitted with Low, Middle and High tone controls to allow adjustment of
the frequency response of the panel to suit the installation requirements.
All the connections to the unit are externally accessible and are of the removable
screw terminal type, allowing for quick and easy connection.
A remote volume control (RVC-1) is available as an optional extra to adjust the
volume level of the speaker
The amplifier requires a 230v 50Hz mains power supply.

Integrated Amplifer Features
• Line Level:
Volume control for adjusting the level of the Line Level Input.
• Tone Controls:
Three controls (Low, Middle and High) for adjusting the tonal content of the sound
output from the amplifier.
• Power:
The red LED situated on the unit indicates, when illuminated, that power is
• 230v Mains Input:
230v 50Hz Mains input (IEC Type Connector).
Connection Details
(please refer to diagram on page 7)
• Line In:
Balanced line level input terminals for connection of any line level signal source
(eg. CD, MP3, Laptop, etc)
• Signal Control:
These four terminals are supplied to allow the connection of ancillary equipment
including additional amplifiers, response shaping units, external muting controls,
a remote volume control, etc.
Please note:
A shorting link must be fitted between the Signal In and the Signal Out terminals
when the unit is not used with any external signal control equipment. This link is
fitted by default during manufacture.
• Ext Speaker:
External 8 ohm speaker terminals for powering extra low impedance speakers if
required. Damage to the amplifier can occur if speakers with a total impedance of
less than 8 Ohms is connected to these terminals.
• Mains In:
The mains input should be connected here using an IEC type connector. The
supply input should be 230v AC (±10%) 50Hz.
Warning - No connections should be made to the unit whilst the mains power is connected
