Mounting the Enclosure
Mount the enclosure using the four 0.312-inch
(8 mm) diameter holes located on the mounting
flanges with ¼-inch (M6) hardware. The ICS
Eight-Channel Speaker Monitoring/Distribution
Amplifier is not supplied with conduit or cable
openings.
Remove the front panel and drill or punch entry
openings in the rear section of the enclosure.
Refer to Figure 2 for the suggested locations.
There must be a minimum of ½ inch (13 mm) of
material between entry holes.
The station is suitable for top or bottom entry
per Figure 2. However, GAI-Tronics
recommends bottom entry only wherever
possible.
The standard orientation (shown in Figure 2)
locates the power supply housing in the upper
left corner. The orientation of the enclosure can
be rotated 180º to allow clear access to the top.
For specific details including mounting hole
dimensions, refer to Figure 2. When mounting
the enclosure, use caution to avoid damaging
the internal components.
The suggested mounting height for all station
enclosures is 48 inches (1219 mm) to the center
of the bottom mounting holes of the enclosure.
Field Wiring
The Eight-Channel Speaker
Monitoring/Distribution Amplifier provides
terminal blocks for field wiring. Each
connection for the system cable has two
terminals for daisy-chain wiring. Attach #6
spade lugs to the wires before attachment to the
terminal blocks for the most secure connection.
The terminal blocks on the Termination PCBA
are labeled to coincide with the color code used
on GAI-Tronics 60029 series multi-party cable
or 60038 series single party cable. Refer to
Figure 3 for a sample wiring diagram.

The Eight-Channel Speaker Monitoring/Distribution Amplifier can drive up to eight speakers. In the case
where all eight speakers are not used in an 8-ohm system, an 8-ohm, 2-watt resistor must be connected
across the unused outputs on connectors P1 and P2 on the termination board. For systems that use 16ohm speakers, a 16-ohm, 1-watt resistor must be connected across the unused outputs.
In certain circumstances where paging audio induces feedback, muting the speakers of two or more
stations during a page, referred to as mutual muting, can eliminate such feedback problems. This function
is enabled by connecting the spare orange wire between stations. In standard ICS station the connection
is TB4-2 or TB5-2. In Eight-Channel Speaker Monitoring/Distribution Amplifiers the connection is TB1
“MUTE” or TB2 “MUTE”.
Figure 3. Typical ICS Eight-Channel Speaker Monitoring/Distribution Amplifier Wiring Diagram
After all wiring and cable connections have been completed, place the front cover on the rear enclosure,
being careful not to pinch any cables. Secure the front cover using the four screws and washers provided.
Torque the screws to 10 to 12 lbf⋅in (1.13 to 1.36 N⋅m).

69557 Series Main PCBA
Speaker Gain Jumper Setting
P9 can limit the maximum speaker output level. P9 in the HI position (default) represents a 15-watt total
maximum output. P9 in the LO position represents a 1-watt total maximum output. To achieve the
maximum 1.75 watts into each of the eight 8-ohm speakers the default HI position must be used. Refer to
Figure 5.
Speaker Volume Level Adjustments
As part of a SmartSeries system this station communicates with an ADVANCE system to set the speaker
volume. The volume may be adjusted manually by using the Speaker Volume potentiometer, R91. Refer
to Figure 5.
To set the speaker volume level, turn R91 fully counterclockwise. Listen for a single beep from the
speaker indicating the speaker amplifier is in the Speaker Level Adjustment mode. If the page line is in
use, immediately after the beep tone, the page signal should be used to make the level adjustment. If the
page line is inactive following the beep tone, a continuous tone is activated to make the level adjustment.
After the tone is activated, all page line activity is ignored until completion of the adjustment.
This test tone is used as a reference to adjust the speaker amplifier output level to the desired volume.
Adjust R91 to the desired output. The test tone automatically shuts off 5 seconds after the last
adjustment.

Address Setting
For the SmartSeries option to function properly, each station in an ADVANCE system zone must be
given a unique address using the hexadecimal switches, S1 (Hi Address) and S2 (Lo Address). Each
switch contains 16 settings, labeled 0–F. A small arrow on each switch indicates the setting. Refer to
Figure 6.
The station address is determined by the high address setting followed by the low address setting. For
example, to assign an address of 05, the high station address is set to 0 and the low address is set to 5.
Valid address settings are 05 to FE. Record the address assigned for each station in the system for your
records.
There are two different addresses that need to be set. The first address is set on the front panel
SmartSeries PCBA and the second address is set on the Speaker Termination PCBA in the enclosure.
FSK Signal Gain Level Adjustment
The FSK Signal Gain, R13, adjusts the FSK transmit signal strength. It is set at the factory and should
not be adjusted by the installer.

Configuring the Station
The System Manger can change the system’s software configuration by using the ADVANCE Console
and WinSCP3 software packages. The ADVANCE Console creates and maintains the software
configuration file by methodically setting data values. Graphical representations of the system
components are used along with various data entry forms and settings.
Using the ADVANCE Console does not require a connection to the MCU. The System Manager can
work on a configuration at any pace on a PC. There is no need to set all of the parameter data values in
one session. The System Manager is simply working on a configuration that is independent of any other
configuration that may exist or be active in a functioning system.
When the System Manager is finished entering all the data, the ADVANCE Console file is translated (or
compiled). The resulting file is called the system configuration file. To save the configuration file onto
the MCU, the System Manager’s computer is connected to the MCU using an Ethernet network
connection. The connection can be made using a network patch cable or can be established remotely via
a dial-up modem connection.
The file is loaded onto the MCU using the WinSCP3 application. The purpose of the WinSCP3 program
is to provide a means of accessing the MCU’s hard drive for file transfer from the System Manager’s
computer. The WinSCP3 program does not have the configuration capabilities of the ADVANCE
Console.
Refer to the ADVANCE System Programming Manual to configure the station when using ADVANCE
Console version 2.0.2 or newer. For older versions of Console, use the instructions below for configuring
the station.
There are two stations that must be added to the configuration in ADVANCE Console when configuring
the Eight-Channel Speaker Monitoring/Distribution Amplifier. The first is the ICS Smart Amplifier, and
the second is a MRM. Both must be configured so the address set on the station matches the address in
the configuration. The ICS Eight-Channel Speaker Monitoring/Distribution address is set on the 69552
SmartSeries PCBA and the MRM address is set on the 69584 Speaker Termination PCBA.

In addition, the MRM inputs and outputs also must be configured. Configure the MRM inputs for Relay
Supervision for each connected speaker: Input 1 for speaker 1, Input 2 for speaker 2 and so on. If the
speaker is not used, select “Input Disabled”.
The MRM outputs must be configured to a relay group. Output 1 is used to activate speaker 1, so this is
where you would choose which alarms would play to speaker 1 by selecting the appropriate relay group:
Output 2 is for speaker 2; output 3 is for speaker 3 and so on. If the speaker is not used, select “None”.
