SET UP AND GETTING STARTED
Before turning on your Nemesis Combo, you need to do a few things first. If
your unit was shipped directly to you from a dealer, check carefully for hidden
freight damage before you attempt to operate the unit. If you find any damage,
notify your dealer and the freight line immediately. If you picked up your unit
from your dealer, it was probably set up and tested out already. Just in case, we
suggest that you go through the set up now.
INITIAL SET UP
Before you plug in your unit for the first time, please do the following things.
First, turn the power switch to the off position. Check the back of your unit for
the correct voltage notation for your county of operation.
Once you’ve ensured correct voltage, set the Gain control to Minimum (0). Set
the tone controls to center position (12:00 or 0). Next, plug in the power cord to
the AC inlet on the back of the unit. Use only a safe grounded receptacle for
proper operation at the correct voltage for your country. Double Check to
make certain your amplifier is set for the correct voltage in your country.
Once you’ve completed the steps above, you can plug in your Bass and turn on
the unit. Turn the volume up until you reach a comfortable sound level.
OPERATION & DESCRIPTION of CONTROLS
INPUT JACK
The Input Jack will accept most Bass Guitar output levels. If you have a dualbattery Bass with output in excess of +10dB, you will probably have to turn the
output of your Bass down to avoid clipping the input. The jacks will accept
most passive and active Basses.
TONE CONTROLS
The N-10 features a 3-band EQ section – Bass, Mid and Treble. When shaping
your sound, always begin with these controls set FLAT (12:00). Make changes
a little at a time. Too much EQ in any band can cause your sound to be muddy,
and that’s a Very Bad Thing.
3
GAIN CONTROL
This control regulates the first amplification stage and controls the gain of the
first stage in the overall system. The compressor automatically tracks the input
level and follows the gain. This is a fixed-threshold type compressor. You
control the compressor threshold by setting the gain higher or lower; depending
on how much compression effect you want. The compressor is also provided
with a bypass switch to defeat the compressor operation if desired. For most
instruments, you should set the control between 9:00 and 3:00 to match your
instrument and playing style to the amplifier.
HEADPHONE OUTPUT/ Aux. Line Out
This jack provides the output for headphones for practicing. If you switch off
the internal speaker, you can use your amplifier to rehearse with just the
headphones. It can also be used as an Aux. line level output to run additional
amplifiers. This output will function as the final master control and the
additional amplifiers will be slaved to it.
D.C. INDICATOR
This indicates that both the D.C. power supplies are operating properly and the
amplifier is turned on.
BACK PANEL FEATURES
A.C. FUSE
The fuse for US operation is a 2.5 Amp. 5x20 MM slow-blow type fuse. In
Europe, use a 1.2 Amp or 1.6 Amp 240v slow-blow fuse and the appropriate
AC connector for your country. Make certain that your unit is set for the
correct voltage for your country.
VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: The unit is set at the factory to operate at the
correct voltage for your country. It cannot be changed.

HEAVY DUTY PROFESSIONAL USE
The Nemesis N Series Combos are primarily designed for personal practice.
Your unit is designed to be played hard and to hold up well. However, it is not
designed to replace, or to perform as loudly as, the more powerful Eden
separate systems. If you find you are pushing your amplifier so hard that you
are encountering thermal standby and shut down on more than a very
occasional basis, you are pushing the unit well above the intended operating
parameters and should consider stepping up to a bigger rig.
SETTING UP YOUR OWN SOUND
Start by setting the pre-amplifier tone controls to the flat position. Set the
Master volume control to 0. Set all the tone controls to 0. Plug in your Bass and
turn on your unit. Set the Gain control to around 10:00 and move the master up
to around 11:00, or to a comfortable listening level.
To sum things up, you will always have the best results creating a great bass
tone around the natural tone of your instrument. Use the minimum amount of
EQ required to get your sound.
SPEAKER BREAK IN
It is recommended that you play for a few hours at low to medium volume
before you push your new Combo to the max. This will extend the life of the
speaker system.
FOR YOUR SAFETY
Always use a correctly grounded receptacle for your Amplifier A.C. receptacle.
If your fuse should ever need replacement use only the same size and type that
came with your unit from the factory.

encounter any problems with your unit, please contact your local Dealer or
