RETLIFU 1 RETURN = TAFE IN
GAIN (1)
Varies the gain of the channel input stage to allow a wide input dynamic range. Proper adjustment of the input gain will
maximize the signal to noise ratio,
HIGH EQ (2)
A shelving type of active tone control that varies the high (treble) frequency range +15 dB.
LOW EQ (3)
A shelving type of active tone control that varies the low (bass) frequency range +15 dB.
AUX 1 (4)
Adjusts the level of the channel signal added into the Aux 1 mix. This control is post fader.
AUX 2 (5)
Adjusts the level of the channel signal added into the Aux 2 mix. This control is post fader.
PAN (6)
Assigns the channel to any position in the Left-Right stereo field. For mono operation, the channel should be assigned
to the Left or Right mix. On channels 7 - 14, this control functions as a balance control for the paired channels if a
stereo signal 1s applied to the Left and Right input jacks. It is a pan control for mono inputs.
CHANNEL LEVEL (7)
Sets the level of the channel to the Left and Right mixes. The detent (channels 1 - 6) is at the 0 dB (unity gain; mid
position) point to assure an optimum balance between noise and headroom.
STEREO RETURN 1 LEVEL (8)
Adjusts the level of the Stereo Return 1 that is added into the Left-Right mix.
STEREO RETURN 2 LEVEL (9)
Adjusts the level of the Stereo Return 2 that is added into the Left-Right mix.
TAPE INPUT LEVEL (10)
Adjusts the stereo level of the Tape signal added to the Left-Right mix.
LED METER ARRAYS (11)
Two 12 point LED arrays are provided to visually indicate the levels of the Left and Right mixes. The clip LED lights
when the levels reach +12 dBV, 6 dBV below the actual clip level as a warning of loss of headroom.
MASTER (12)
This adjusts the master level for the Left and Right mix, and sets the overall output levels of the Left and Right output
jacks.
HEADPHONE LEVEL (13)
Adjusts the level of the Left and Right signals to the headphone jack. This signal is independent of the Master Level
Control, (pre-fader)
LINE INPUT (14)
High impedance channel input designed for unbalanced high level signals equipped with a 1/4" phone plug.
LOW Z MIC INPUT (15)
Channel input designed for use with a balanced low impedance mic or low level source equipped with an XLR connec-
tor.
PATCH (16)
A stereo jack that breaks the signal before EQ to allow for an external compressor or graphic EQ to be inserted into the
channel. Tip = Send. Ring = Return.
STEREO LINE INPUT, LEFT/MONO (Channels 7, 9, 11, 13) (17)
A high impedance input for devices having a high level output and 1/4" phone plugs. Mono inputs should be connected
to this input. It supplies a signal to both the Left and Right mix of corresponding channels, which can be positioned by
the channel Pan control. If a stereo input is used, the Left output should be connected to this jack.
STEREO LINE INPUT, RIGHT (Channels 8, 10, 12, 14) (18)
A high impedance input for devices having a high level output and 1/4" phone plugs. When a stereo device 1s con-
nected, the Right output from the device should be connected to this jack. (See Left/Mono Return.)
RETURN 1, LEFT/MONO (19)
Mono effect devices connected to the Aux | output may be returned at this point. This input supplies a mono signal to
both the Left and Right mix if there is no plug connected to the Return | Right jack. When a stereo effects device is
connected, its Left output should be returned to this jack.
RETURN 1, RIGHT (20)
When a stereo effect device is connected to the Aux 1 output, the Right output from the device should be returned to
this jack. (See Left/Mono Return.)
RETURN 2, LEFT/MONO (21)
Mono effect devices connected to the Aux 2 output may be returned at this point. This input supplies a mono signal to
both the Left and Right mix if there is no plug connected to the Return 2 Right jack. When a stereo effects device is
connected, its Left output should be returned to this jack.
RETURN 2, RIGHT (22)
When a stereo effect device 15 connected to the Aux 2 output, the Right output from the device should be returned to
this jack. (See Left/Mono Return.)
AUX 1 OUT (23)
Output of the Aux 1 mix to external effects or signal processing equipment. The level is set by the Aux 1 signals from
the channels.
AUX 2 OUT (24)
Output of the Aux 2 mix to external effects or signal processing equipment. The level 1s set by the Aux 2 signals from
the channels.
LEFT OUTPUT/RIGHT OUTPUT (25)
These are the outputs of the Left-Right mix that are adjusted by the Master fader.
TAPE INPUT JACKS (26)
Receives a line level stereo input from the output of a tape deck or CD player.
TAPE OUTPUT JACKS (27)
Provides stereo signal to the Left and Right input of a stereo tape deck. The level 1s a 10 dB attenuation of the Left and
Right output signals.
POWER SWITCH and LED (28)
Press toward LED to turn on. LED will illuminate when power is on.
HEADPHONE JACK (29)
This stereo jack provides signal to drive stereo headphones. Tip = Left, Ring = Right.

All operating instructions should be followed.
This product should not be used near water, 1e, à bathwb. sink, swimming pool, wet basement, ete.
This product should be located so that its position does not interfere with its proper ventilation. It should not be placed flat against a
wall or placed in a built-in enclosure that will impede the flow of cooling air.
This product should not be placed near a source of heat such as a stove, radiator, or another heat producing amplifier.
Connect only to a power supply of the type marked on the unit adjacent to the power supply cord.
Never break off the ground pin on the power supply cord. For more information on grounding. write for our free booklet "Shock
Hazard and Grounding.”
Power supply cords should always be handled carefully. Never walk or place equipment on power supply cords. Periodically check
cords for cuts or signs of stress, especially at the plug and the point where the cord exits the unit,
The power supply cord should be unplugged when the unit 15 10 Бе unused for long periods of time.
If this product is to be mounted in an equipment rack, rear support should be provided.
Metal parts can be cleaned with a damp rag. The vinyl covering used on some units can be cleaned with a damp rag or an ammonia-

d. The unit has been dropped or the enclosure damaged.
The user should not attempt to service this equipment. All service work should be done by a qualified service technician.
This product should be used only with a cart or stand that is recommended by Peavey Electronics,
Exposure to extremely high noise levels may cause a permanent hearing loss. Individuals vary considerably in susceptibility to noise
induced hearing loss, but nearly everyone will lose some hearing if exposed to sufficiently intense noise for a sufficient time,
The U.S. Government's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has specified the following permissible noise level
exposures.

According to OSHA, any exposure in excess of the above permissible limits could result in some hearing loss.
Far plugs or protectors in the ear canals or over the ears must be worn when operating this amplification system in order to prevent a
permanent hearing loss if exposure 1s in excess of the limits as set forth above. To ensure against potentially dangerous exposure to high
sound pressure levels, it 1s recommended that all persons exposed to equipment capable of producing high sound pressure levels such as
this amplification system he protected by hearing protectors while this unit is in operation.
