Connections
The Sonance iPort™ In-Wall Docking System allows an Apple iPod® to
become part of a whole-home audio system, and/or to be used as a source
in a variety of local audio systems. The video output allows photos and
slide shows stored on iPod Photo players to be displayed on TVs and
monitors anywhere in a home entertainment system. The iPort’s built-in
IR emitters allow users to operate the iPod via IR controllers (an optional
3rd-party IR receiver is required); the iPod can also be operated directly
from its own controls. The iPort supplies DC power to the iPod and
recharges it while it is docked.

Installing the
Base Cradle
Since the back plate covers the chassis mounting screws it won’t be
installed until after the iPort chassis has been mounted into a wall.
Before making connections and mounting the iPort into a wall, install the
appropriate base cradle (see Figure 2):
1. Find the base cradle for the model of iPod that will be used with the
iPort. The model designations (‘40GB’, ‘20GB’, ‘Mini’) are molded-into
the underside of each cradle.
2. Insert the base cradle into the iPort chassis with the rectangular cutout
centered over the multi-pin connector in the chassis base.
3. Tilt the cradle forward slightly and fit it down on the chassis base
by inserting 3 rectangular pegs on the front of the cradle into the
corresponding holes on the chassis.
4. Press on the cradle’s rear panel so the 2 rear rectangular pegs snap into place.

SELECTING AN INSTALLATION LOCATION FOR THE iPort
Important: Do NOT install the video termination wallplate in the same electrical
box as AC house wiring, a light switch or any other high-voltage device or control. The wallplate can share gang boxes with other controls such as A/B speaker
switches, infrared receivers and volume controls, if these other devices are rated
as Class 2 devices according to the National Electrical Code.
The iPort is designed for installation and use in normal interior
environments. When selecting an installation location for the iPort, please
consider the following:
1. Prepare a video cable of the appropriate length using RG59U cable with
copper braid shielding (DO NOT use conventional CATV cable with
aluminum shielding):
a. Solder one end of the cable to a male RCA connector.
b. Run the cable from the iPort location through the wall to the RCA
wallplate location.
c. Solder the other end of the cable to the RCA wallplate (see above).
• The iPort is not waterproof, nor is it water-resistant. Do not install the
iPort outside, or in a humid or wet environment.
• The iPort cutout is 41/8” (105mm) wide x 57/8” (150mm) high. There also
must be at least 3” (76mm) depth within the wall cavity for the iPort and
its connections.
• The iPort has angled screw mounting holes on both sides that allow it to
be installed up against a stud. (See Installing The iPort In A Wall, on page 7.)
• Direct sunlight can interfere with IR operation. Avoid installation
locations that are in direct sunlight a portion of the day. (See IR Control
In An iPort System, on page 8.)
Note: To maintain proper video quality, we recommend that the RG59U video
cable be no longer than 100 feet.
2. Connect the end of the video cable with the male RCA connector to the
iPort Video Output (use a male 3.5mm mini > female RCA adapter, not
included).
3. Use a composite video cable to connect the RCA wallplate to the video
equipment.
See Figure 5, below.
iPort VIDEO CONNECTIONS FOR iPod PHOTO PLAYERS
The iPort allows photos and slide shows stored on iPod Photo players to
be displayed on TVs and monitors anywhere in the home. The Video
Output on the iPort base passes the iPod’s standard composite video
signal (both NTSC and PAL format) through a 3.5mm mini connection.
Note: The iPort video output is only active when the iPod is in Slide Show mode.
The iPort video signal should be routed to a wallplate located in the room
with the video display or video distribution amplifier. We recommend
fitting a single RCA connector (Sonance part# 901226) in a 1-hole
wallplate (Sonance part#s 901229 – 901233) and installing this wallplate
into a 2-gang box along with the iPort wallplate.

iPort LONG-DISTANCE SYSTEM WIRING GUIDE
Thin gauge wire like CAT5 can greatly reduce voltage levels over long wire runs, and long parallel audio wire runs that are near high-voltage cable runs
(i.e. for electric ranges and refrigerators) can inject hum and reduce audio quality. To avoid performance degradation of the iPort system,
please follow these wiring recommendations:
Runs 1'- 250': Use CAT5 cable for all 8 connections. (See Figure 7 on Page 6 for example.)
Runs 1'- 250' near extensive high voltage cable runs: Use shielded audio wire (Sonance part# 91874) for +L, -L, +R and -R. Use 22/4 control wire or

INSTALLING THE iPort IN A WALL
Step 6
Step 7
The Sonance iPort features an integral RotoLock® mounting system for quick
mounting directly into existing walls. Once the hole is cut and the cables are
run (see iPort System Connections and iPort Long Distance System Wiring
Guide), you can install the iPort in a matter of seconds.
1. Determine the location for the iPort.
2. Perform an obstruction survey to be certain that there are no studs,
conduit, pipes, heating ducts or air returns that will interfere with the iPort.
Note: You can mount the iPort directly next to wall studs on either side (see Step 9).
3. The iPort cutout is 41/8” (105mm) wide x 57/8” (150mm) high. There
also must be at least 3” (76mm) depth within the wall cavity for the
iPort and its connections.
4. Find the cutout template provided in the iPort packaging. Position the
template where the iPort is to be located and pencil an outline on the wall.
• If you are unsure about obstructions, drill a small hole in the center of
the outline and insert a coat hanger wire into the hole to
feel-around for possible obstructions.
5. Cut the opening using a drywall saw.
6. Make all cable connections according to System Connections, above.
Double-check that all the connections are correct.
7. Insert the iPort into the opening in the wall.
Note: The RotoLock system can accommodate a maximum wall
material thickness of 13/8”.
8. Tighten the four RotoLock screws on the iPort chassis (2 on each side).
The RotoLock clamps will automatically rotate into position and begin
clamping the iPort.
• When you notice resistance on the four screws the iPort has been
clamped successfully.
Important: Always use low-torque settings — NEVER over-tighten.
9. If there are wall studs up against either side of the iPort that prevent the
RotoLock clamps from operating, secure the iPort by driving a 1½” #6
drywall screw (not provided) through the angled hole on the side of the
chassis and into the wall stud.
