Identification:
1, Equaliser (EQ) Controls - (TREBLE / BASS) – This is a 2-band equaliser for adjusting
different frequency bands. The BASS control is centered at 80Hz and the TREBLE centered
at 12.5kHz
2, Effects (EFF) Control - Provides control over the level of signal sent from the channel into
the Effects processor.
3, Level Control - Sets output level for the channel, turning this clockwise will increase the
level of the selected channel within the main mix. This should be adjusted slowly as introducing too much gain to the system can cause feedback and damage speakers/amplifiers and also
produce high frequencies at high sound levels and may damage your hearing.
4, Balanced XLR Microphone Input - Accepts low level, low impedance microphone signals
via a Balanced XLR socket. Pin configuration is:
Pin 1 = GND, Pin2 = +ve (Hot), Pin3 = -ve (Cold)
5, Unbalanced 6.35mm (¼”) Line Input - Accepts line level, high impedance signals via an
unbalanced 6.35mm (¼”) jack socket. Pin configuration is
Tip = +ve (Hot), Sleeve = -ve (Cold/GND)
6, Power ON/OFF Switch - Turns amplifier power on or off. When on, the Red Neon will
illuminate.
6
7, Master Equaliser (EQ) Controls - (TREBLE / BASS) – A 3-band equaliser for adjusting
different frequency bands within the main mix output. The BASS control is centered at 80Hz,
MIDDLE centered at 2.5kHz and the TREBLE centered at 12.5kHz.
8, CD/TAPE Line Input - Linked directly to the CD/TAPE Line input on the rea r panel this controls
the level for the CD/TAPE Line input within the main/master mix.
9, EFF Return Control (EFF RETURN) - This adjusts the level of signal returned from the built-in Effects processor to the main mix output.
10, MASTER - The MASTER is for overall control of the level or volume of the amplifier. This
should be adjusted slowly as introducing too much gain to the system can cause feedback
and damage speakers/amplifiers and also produce high frequencies at high sound levels and
may damage your hearing.
11, MAINS Input - The mixer amplifier requires a standard 220-240Vac ~ 50Hz mains supply.
The mixer amplifier is supplied with a BS1363A UK type 13A fused plug fitted. The plug
contains a fuse – should this blow the fuse should be replaced with one of the exact same
rating. Do not fit a fuse with a higher rating.
12, FUSE - Should the mains fuse fail this can indicate a problem with the mixer amplifier or the
speakers connected. The mains fuse should only be replaced after the product has been checked
for damage the fuse should be replaced with the exact same type. This unit uses a T1.6A 250V
20x5mm glass fuse.
13, REC OUT - A standard line level output for connection to audio recorders or for use as an
external line output to external amplification. Output is via two phono sockets.
14, TAPE IN - A standard line level input for connection to audio recorders or for use as an
external line output to external amplification.
15, SEND JACK - If an external effects processor is to be used with the mixer amplifier this
output will provide a line level feed via an unbalanced 6.35mm (¼”) mono jack. The signal
can then be routed via an effects processor, graphic equalizer or similar before being
returned to the RETURN located adjacent to the SEND. Inserting a Jack plug into the SEND
socket will cut the feed to the main mix, this socket must be used with an external
processor and the signal returned post-processing to the RETURN jack.
16, RETURN JACK - Accepts a line level feed via an unbalanced 6.35mm (¼”) mono jack, this
is used in conjunction with the SEND output where external processing is required.
17, SPEAKER OUTPUTS - These provide the main speaker outputs via standard 6.35mm (¼”)
mono jack plugs. All speaker cables should be manufactured from two core, double insulated
cable suitable for carrying high currents. This amplifier is designed to work with 4О© - 8О© impedance
loads – the minimum impedance per speaker output is 4Ω. If in any doubt please contact your
dealer or the Pulse Technical as the wrong combination of speakers can damage either the
amplifier, the speakers or worst case both!
NOTE: Guitar signal leads are not suitable and may fail causing damage to the speakers and or amplifier. Speaker outputs can present high voltages capable of delivering an electric shock – care should be taken with connections to ensure no bare wires are visable.
All connections/ disconnections should be made when the amplifier is turned off. Speaker cables made for use with this product should
be wired as per the following chart. If in any doubt please contact your local dealer who will be able to manufacture cables to suitor sell
suitable cables for the system.
7
Start Up
Make sure that the power switch is set to “OFF” before you connect the speakers.
Inputs
A good quality cable run improves the sound quality considerably. Input cables should be short
and direct, since high frequencies may be absorbed if the cables are unnecessarily long. Also a
longer cable may lead to humming and noise problems. If long cables runs are unavoidable, you
should use balanced cables.
In order to obtain the highest sound quality, only use high quality cables for connecting the units.
Balanced XLR Connection
Connection With The Mains
Connect the unit to the mains with the power plug.
The earth has to be connected.
Switch the unit on. After switching on the speaker system, wait 8 - 10 seconds before you turn the
volume control up in order to avoid speaker damage.
Always check the sound pressure level with a meter in order to keep to the legal threshold.
8
Connections
This speaker system is equipped with 2 pole 6.35mm jack speaker sockets. Speaker connections
should only be made while the mixer amplifier is powered off.
Installing the speaker cables
Connect the speakers to the left and right speaker sockets. The signal will be transmitted to the
individual speakers.
Always treat the cables carefully and protect them from damage during transportation.
Always install the cables in a structured way and protect them from damage.
The cables must be installed in a way that no person can trip over them. Always fix the
cables with an appropriate tape etc.
Should the supplied speaker cables need replacement, please ensure good quality speaker cable
is used (ie. CABL28). Do not use guitar cables or signal cables.
Installation
Stacking
This speaker system may only be installed on top of another speaker system if both systems are
clamped up to each other via appropriate clamping belts and protected against tilting over.
9
Installation on a Speaker Stand
The speaker system may only be installed on a speaker stand if the
original speaker system is equipped with an appropriate stand adaptor.
Stands or satellite systems must only be installed on a plane area with a
maximum inclination angle of 5Лљ.
CAUTION: Speaker systems installed under the influence of horizontal
forces, e.g. wind, can be impaired. This is why additional safety
measures like attaching ballast weights have to be taken.
If inclined tension cables or prolonged outriggers are used. the area of
danger has to marked or blocked.
Before lifting or lowering the telescopic tubes, you must always block a
safety area around the stand or satellite system. This safety area must
have a diameter of 1.5 times the maximum height.
Lifted telescopic tubes always have to be secured with a
secondary securing attachment.
The total weight of the installation (total weight of system including
individual parts) must never exceed the maximum load of the installation
area.
Unintended movement of the load has to be avoided - also in case of fire!
Loosen the fixing screws of the legs, pull the legs out until the
cross struts are at a 90Лљ angle to the legs. Tighten the
fixingscrews of the legs.
Installation Of The Speaker System
CAUTION: The loads have to be installed in a balanced way.
CAUTION: The carrying capacity of the stand or speaker stand must never be exceeded.
Wall Installation
The speaker system can only be installed on a wall, if the original speaker system is equipped with
an appropriate mounting point.
Before attaching the speaker system, make sure that
the installation area can hold a minimum point load of
10 times the installations weight.
(e.g. 13Kgs - 130Kgs point load).
The durability of the installation depends very much on the material used at the
installation area (building material), such as wood,
concrete and brick etc. This is why the fixing material must be
chosen to suit the wall material. Always ask a specialist for the correct plug/screw
combination indicating the maximum load and building material.
