Introduction

T hank you and congratulations on your purchase of the Point Zero series of Subwoofer, from the world's finest brand in professional audio equipment.

The Point Zero series is comprised of three modules; the FA10.0, FA12.0, and FA15.0. The FA10.0 is an amplified 10" subwoofer. The FA12.0 is an amplified 12" subwoofer and the FA15.0 is an amplified 15" subwoofer. All Point Zero series are designed and engineered for Home Theater Systems and high performance home audio applications.

For ease of use, this manual is organized into two main sections: Installation and Operation.

"Installation" covers the set-up of your new Fosgate Audionics equipment to the system. "Operation" covers the controls and how to use them for optimum performance.

Technical Design Features

The FA10.0, FA12.0, and FA15.0 monitors utilize a specially designed amplifier featuring our innovative Trans•ana circuitry. This topology, with its unique input-to-output configuration (derived from our patented Trans•nova circuit), employs power gain in the MOSFET output stage that result in superior sound quality.

The amplifier features an auto turn-on/off circuit that eliminates the need for a conventional power switch. Input signals can be fed into the amplifier via Un-Balanced RCA jacks or Speaker level input jacks. Each pair of inputs is combined into a mono-summed signal before being fed into a 4th order

Linkwitz-Riley low-pass crossover, adjustable from 40Hz~140Hz. If selected, the signal is then fed into the Phase Control that allows the phase of the signal to be adjusted at 90˚, 180˚, or 270˚ increments.

The FA10.0 is a 10” (254mm) low frequency transducer that features a 2” (51mm) voice coil and is driven by a 30 oz. magnet. The FA12.0 is a 12” (305mm) low frequency transducer that features a

2.5” (63.5mm) voice coil and is driven by a 102 oz. magnet. The FA15.0 is a 15” (381mm) low frequency transducer that features a 2.5” (63.5mm) voice coil and is driven by a 153 oz. magnet. All

Point Zero transducers feature Cellulose Fiber cones for accurate sound reproduction and Santoprene

Rubber Surrounds that are immune to temperature fluctuations. This specialized rubber surround controls woofer damping and reduces 2nd harmonic distortions for a very wide and flat frequency response. The Point Zero series voice coils are 4-layers of copper wound on aluminum formers.

Aluminum voice coil formers provide excellent heat dissipation that provides higher power handling versus plastic or Kapton type formers used by other manufacturers.

MEHSA

(Maximum Efficiency HeatSink Application) MEHSA is a proprietary process that yields up to 5 times better heat transfer than traditional FET mounting techniques using the exact same components. A multi-layer insulated metal substrate operating with minimal thermal resistance spreads heat both downward and outward to quickly dissipate heat from each device across the heatsink. This process combined with our DSM technology and MOSFET devices allows us to squeeze more watts per cubic inch from every output device as well as provide consistent thermal stability.

The Result: Better reliability through faster heat dissipation.

Trans•ana

Trans•ana (TRANSconductance Active Nodal Amplifier) is a circuit that allows the audio signal to pass through the amplifier at low voltage. The signal is directly level-shifted to the fixed high voltage rails via a pair of driver transistors. Signal linearity is assured by an active node formed by the driver transistors at ultrasonic frequencies. This allows amplifier performance similar to Trans•nova which is highly stable and linear while utilizing the advantages of a non-floating power supply.

The Result: An extended frequency band width accurately supplied to the output stages of the amplifier.

MOSFET Devices

Fosgate Audionics is one of the few manufacturers in the sound community to utilize MOSFET devices in the amplifier output stage. MOSFET (Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistor) devices offer several important inherent advantages over older bi-polar designs. These advantages include: thermal stability, fast switching speed, ultra low output impedance and wide bandwidth linearity. In addition, MOSFETs operate very similarly to vacuum tubes in that they are more linear than bipolar transistors. However, MOSFETs can deliver the midrange clarity without the limitations of transient response and high frequency phase shifting normally associated with tube operation.

The Result: Thermal stability, fast switching speed, ultra low output impedance and wide bandwidth linearity.

– 2 –

Subsonic Filter

The Point Zero series uses a Subsonic Filter to prevent the woofer from reproducing inaudible frequencies. Subsonic frequencies, (known as infrasonic frequencies), are signals below the normal human hearing range. The subsonic filter reduces the energy of these frequencies and restrains the woofer from operating outside its optimum linear excursion. This type of electronic control eliminates the mechanical distortion caused by a woofer traveling beyond its XMAX, improves power handling, increases reliability and improves sonic performance.

The Result: Improved power handling, increased reliability and improved sonic performance.

Phase Control

The Phase Control is used to align the arrival time of the subwoofer’s output information with satellite monitors. Aligning both signals will insure that both Subwoofer and reference monitor information arrive at the listening position at the same time. This eliminates the possibility of acoustical cancellation and improves the reproduction of transients in the crossover region.

The Result: Eliminates phase cancellation and improves transient response.

Speaker Level Inputs

Does your receiver have only speaker level outputs? No problem! Fosgate Audionics Speaker Level

Input circuitry converts the speaker line outputs (high level) from your receiver into pre-amp line inputs

(low level) for your Point Zero amplifier. This allows compatibility with a variety of receivers as well as the ability to retrofit your new Fosgate Audionics subwoofer into existing systems without the need for external adapters.

Santoprene Rubber Surround

Santoprene is a very durable and temperature tolerant material which provides a consistent support necessary for the linear motion of the speaker cone. In addition, the damping capabilities eliminate the transmission of sonic disturbances between the cone and the frame of the speaker. This greatly improves the accuracy of the woofer’s low frequency response.

The Result: Improves woofer’s low frequency response.

Aluminum Voice Coil Former

The transducers voice coil former is black anodized aluminum for highly efficient thermal transfer.

Another method of producing voice coils is with Kapton® formers. Although this material is very resistant to heat, any heat generated by the transducer is “trapped” on the copper voice coil windings.

Fosgate Audionics uses aluminum voice coil formers because aluminum acts like a “heat sink” and helps dissipate heat away from the voice coil. This allows winding high temperature copper wire in multiple layers for improved efficiency.

The Result: Improves power handling by efficiently dissipating heat.

Installation

Location

The size of the room used for your Home Theater can have a significant effect on the bass response of your system. Since many movies exaggerate explosions, earthquakes, and other low frequency effects, a high performance subwoofer system is required. Your Fosgate Audionics subwoofer is specially designed for these high levels of excursion and linearity. In order to get the most out of your subwoofer, Fosgate Audionics has documented the differences between typical Studio and Home Theater installations.

Home Theater Installations

Home Theater installations are typically medium sized living rooms or game rooms that have large, flat walls. Acoustics in this type of installation can have a big effect on the SPL (Sound Pressure Level) and f3 (low frequency cut-off) of the subwoofer because the walls are very reflective. The only elements in these installations that acoustically

“absorb” sounds are furniture and carpet.

Dramatic “Boundary Loading” can be achieved by locating the subwoofer under a table, next to a wall or in a corner (FIG. 4), thus increasing SPL and lowering the f3 of the subwoofer system. Locating the subwoofer in the middle of the room or in a large open area where there are few reflective surfaces will cause a decrease in SPL and an increase in f3 and standing waves. Experiment with

Rear different locations in the room to determine which type of bass response works best in your home theater. Example; place the subwoofer in the listening area, listen to the subwoofer while standing in different locations in the room. Locations that you hear the most accurate and smoothest bass response would be a good location to place the subwoofer.

Operation

Auto Turn-on / Sleep Mode

The Fosgate Audionics subwoofers automatically turn on when they sense an input signal. When the signal being fed to the subwoofer is turned off, the subwoofer’s amplifier will turn off and go into

“sleep mode.” This feature eliminates the inconvenience of operating a mechanical power switch.

Input Sensitivity

The Input Sensitivity is used to match the Point Zero series with signal levels from a variety of signal sources. The Input Sensitivity uses a potentiometer to match input levels over a 30dB range and is variable from 0dB to -30dB. The numbers listed on the back panel indicate attenuation from maximum gain, calibrated in dB.

Low-Pass Crossover

The Low-Pass Crossover is used to set the electrical cutoff point of the subwoofer enclosure. The

Crossover uses a variable potentiometer to set the cutoff point anywhere between 40Hz and 140Hz.

When the control is set to its full CLOCKWISE position the cutoff frequency is set to 140Hz Low-Pass.

When the control is set to its full COUNTER CLOCK-

WISE position the cutoff frequency is set to 40Hz

Low-Pass.

It is important to match the Low-Pass crossover point of the subwoofer with the High-Pass crossover point of the high frequency reference monitors.

Mismatching the crossover points can cause dips or peaks in the acoustical response. Overlapping the crossover points (i.e., subwoofer at 60Hz Low-Pass & high frequency monitors at 50Hz High-Pass) can cause a peak between 50Hz and 60Hz.

Underlapping the crossover points (i.e., subwoofer at

40Hz Low-Pass & high frequency monitors at 70Hz

High-Pass) will cause a dip between 40Hz and 70Hz.

We recommend using a crossover setting whenever possible to minimize “localization” of the subwoofer, usually between 50Hz and 60Hz. These low frequencies make it nearly impossible to detect where the subwoofer is in the listening room.

Operation

Phase Control

The Phase Control switches allow the Fosgate Audionics subwoofer to be acoustically aligned with other speakers in your system. 0˚, -90˚, -180˚, or -270˚ degrees of phase shift at 80Hz can be selected using DIP switches 2, 3, and 4. For 0˚ degrees of phase shift, leave all three switches in the OFF (up) position. –270˚ degrees of phase shift occurs when switch 2 is selected in the ON (down) position.

–180˚ degrees can be achieved by selecting both switches 2 and 3 in the ON (down) position. Finally, selecting all switches 2, 3, and 4 in the ON (down) position produces –90˚ degrees of phase shift.

Set-up Procedure

1) Place all your speakers and any acoustically significant components in their working location in the listening environment.

2) Insert a sine wave signal into the audio path. Be careful to turn down the level before turning on the amplifiers.

3) Choose a frequency that corresponds to the crossover frequency between the Fosgate Audionics subwoofer and the reference monitors.

4) From the listening position, alternate between the Fosgate Audionics subwoofer and the full range speakers and adjust the levels until they have the same acoustic output. Use an SPL meter, a microphone on a VU meter, or your ears to accomplish this.

5) With all speakers on, try the 0˚, -270˚, -180˚, and –90˚ degree phase settings. The setting with the highest SPL reading from your listening position will produce the most effective acoustic alignment.

6) Set the FA10.0/FA12.0/FA15.0 gain control according to your preference. This will not affect the acoustic alignment of your system.

Here is a list of some items that can affect acoustic alignment: Relocating speakers, changing the

Fosgate Audionics subwoofer Low Pass frequency, changing the acoustic environment (i.e., traps, diffusers, etc.), changing the listening position.

Although this procedure produces the maximum achievable acoustic gain for your system, listening tests may still lead you to prefer another setup.

Example of how phase misalignment between high frequency speakers and a subwoofer can cause cancellation

AC Line

The FA10.0/FA12.0/FA15.0 operate from a 115 VAC/60Hz power line.

The FA10.0CE/FA12.0CE/FA15.0CE operate from a 230 VAC 50/60Hz power line. Connection is made by a 16 gauge, IEC Type 320, grounded line cord. For safety considerations only a properly grounded

(earthed) receptacle should be used. If a grounded circuit is not available, do not break off the ground pin; use the proper adapter plug for a two wire receptacle with the grounding plug suitably connected to earth ground.

Important: The power line fuse is mounted on the rear panel. If this fuse blows, replace it only with the same type and rating as indicated in the parts list.

LED Indicator

Amplifier operation is monitored internally and has a status LED. This indicator can be used for system troubleshooting. The LED will illuminate GREEN if signal is present at the subwoofer’s input. The LED will turn off and the amplifier will go into sleep mode if signal is not present.

Break-in and Warm-up

We recommend initially breaking in the subwoofer for approximately 8 hours with musical information to establish the subwoofer’s natural bass response.

Cleaning & Maintenance

There is no requirement for regular maintenance on the electronic components of the subwoofer. If the cabinet or woofer becomes soiled, it can be cleaned using a damp, soft cloth. If the subwoofer is located in a particularly dusty environment, cleaning the inside with compressed air or vacuuming every 18 to 24 months is sufficient.
