Volume Control Schemes
Volume Control Schemes
The JBL® Professional SoundBar PSB-1 is designed to connect to the line-level, stereo, analog output of a TV. Many
TVs offer an analog output, only a subset of TV’s allow their analog output to send a signal whose volume level tracks
with the volume adjustments being made to the TV. This feature is commonly known as “variable output.”
Other TV’s do not offer variable output, which means their analog output sends a signal whose volume remains fixed
at (or near) 100% loudness, regardless of the volume adjustments made upstream to the TV. Fortunately, the JBL®
Professional SoundBar PSB-1 is designed to accommodate either type of TV, with a single remote controlling the entire
system in either scenario.
INTEGRATION WITH A VARIABLE OUTPUT TV
If your TV supports variable audio output, we recommend using the soundbar as follows:
1.
On the back of the soundbar, select "Variable
Source".
2.
Within the TV's on-screen menu, make two
simple changes:
a.
Disable internal speaker (recommended
for best sound)
b.
Set audio output to "Variable"
No changes are needed to the existing remote!
As the diagram above implies, the end-user makes volume adjustments directly to the TV (which indicates volume via the
TV's standard on-screen volume graphic), while the soundbar volume remains fixed. This system is extremely simple,
reliable, and easily installed.
Page 2
PSB-1 Owner's Manual
Volume Control Schemes
INTEGRATION WITH A FIXED OUTPUT TV
If your TV does not support variable audio output, we recommend using the soundbar as follows:
1.
Program the remote's volume buttons to control
the soundbar.
2.
On the back of the soundbar, select "Fixed
Source".
3.
Within the TV's on-screen menu, make one
simple change:
a.
Disable internal speaker (recommended
for best sound)
As the diagram above implies, the end-user makes volume adjustments directly to the soundbar (which indicates volume
via 10 front panel LEDs). Compared to the previous system, this requires a slightly longer setup time, because a remote
(or the soundbar itself—see "Programming the Soundbar to Respond to Any Remote" on page 9) requires IR code
programming. That being said, this system is still simple, reliable, and easily installed.

Basic Connectors and Indicators
Basic Connectors and Indicators
ANALOG INPUT
Connect this jack to the line-level, stereo, analog output jack of your TV
using the included RCA cable.
If your TV has a 3.5mm analog output jack, then use the included RCA-to3.5mm adapter.
Longer cables can be used if needed, however we do not recommend using
unbalanced cables longer than 10 feet due to the likelihood of added noise.
If your TV has physically separate “fixed” and “variable” audio output jacks,
make sure to connect to the appropriate jack based on the desired volume
control scheme (see "Volume Control Schemes" on page 2).
POWER
Connect the power cable (included) to this connector.
The JBL® Professional SoundBar PSB-1 has an “Auto-Standby” feature.
After 60 minutes of audio inactivity, the soundbar will automatically enter
standby mode, which reduces energy consumption. Once audio is detected
at the input, the PSB-1 will automatically return to its normal mode of operation.
Analog Input
Additionally, if the soundbar has been set to "Fixed Source" mode (see "Installer Settings" on page 5) and the volume
is greater than 30%, then the volume will also reset to 30% (and unmuted) after 60 minutes of audio inactivity. This
ensures that, for example, hotel guests checking into the room aren't startled by a loud volume level set by the previous
guest.
POWER STATUS LED
On the soundbar's front panel there are 10 green volume indicator LEDs, the first of which doubles as a power status
indicator. Unlike the other 9 LEDs, this LED can turn amber, and it allows the installer to confirm proper power
connection and operation.

Installer Settings
Installer Settings
This section contains advanced settings intended only for the installer. Once the appropriate settings are chosen, the
Rear Security Plate (included) can be installed with a screw (included) to prevent end-users from tampering with these
critical settings.
SOURCE VOLUME SWITCH
This 2-position switch allows the installer to select the desired volume
control scheme (see "Volume Control Schemes" on page 2). When
designing a TV-plus-soundbar system, one must decide where to control
volume: at the source (i.e. the TV) or at the soundbar. While each scheme
has its own merits, the JBL® Professional SoundBar PSB-1 is designed to
accommodate either scenario for maximum flexibility.
“Variable Source” (fixed soundbar)
Select this position if volume is being controlled at the TV. In this
mode of operation, the TV sends volume-adjusted audio levels to the
soundbar, which itself maintains a fixed volume level. In this mode, the
end user can adjust volume via the following user interfaces:
•
The existing remote control that came with the TV
•
A third party universal remote control configured to control the TV’s volume
•
The buttons built into the TV
Source Volume Switch
“Fixed Source” (variable soundbar)
Select this position if volume is being controlled at the soundbar. In this mode of operation, the TV sends fixed
audio levels to the soundbar, where volume is then adjusted. In this mode, the end user can adjust volume via the
following user interfaces:
•
The existing remote control that came with the TV (see "Programming the Soundbar to Respond to Any
Remote" on page 9)
•
A third party universal remote control configured to control the PSB-1’s volume (see "Programming a
Universal Remote to Control the Soundbar" on page 11)
•

VOLUME SWITCH
This 4-position switch allows the installer to place an upper limit on the loudness of the
soundbar. This is helpful, for example, to reduce sound transfer between adjacent rooms in a
hotel with thin walls.
“Max” = loudest
“Low” = quietest

Volume Switch
NOTE: This feature is separate from the internal dynamic compressor/limiter DSP algorithm, which automatically
optimizes fidelity and transducer protection (and which cannot be bypassed or adjusted).
A four-position switch (instead of, for example, a fine-tunable dial) allows easily repeatable settings when deploying
soundbars across multiple similar rooms/spaces.
To safely determine the maximum acceptable volume and also to optimize the system by reducing the noise floor, we
recommend taking the following steps:
If the soundbar is set to "Variable Source" mode:
1.
Ensure TV audio can be heard coming from the soundbar
2.
Set the soundbar's "Volume" switch to "Low"
3.
Increase the TV's volume to its maximum allowed setting
4.
If more output is needed, set the soundbar's "Volume" switch to "Medium"
5.
If more output is needed, set the soundbar's "Volume" switch to "High"
6.
If more output is needed, set the soundbar's "Volume" switch to "Max"
If the soundbar is set to "Fixed Source" mode:
1.
Ensure TV audio can be heard coming from the soundbar
2.
Set the soundbar's "Volume" switch to "Low"
3.
Hold the soundbar's "Volume Up" button until the soundbar is turned all the way up (to 60%)
4.
If more output is needed, set the "Volume" switch to "Medium" and turn the soundbar all the way up (to 80%)
5.
If more output is needed, set the "Volume" switch to "High" and turn the soundbar all the way up (to 90%)
6.
If more output is needed, set the "Volume" switch to "Max" and turn the soundbar all the way up (to 100%)

PSB-1 Top Panel
Remote Control
When the soundbar is set to “Fixed Source” (variable soundbar) mode, these buttons allow the end user to control the
internal volume of the soundbar—either from the top panel or from a remote.
NOTE 1: While similar in certain ways, these volume buttons differ significantly from the “Volume” switch on the rear
of the device. These buttons are for the end user (giving them granular volume control during TV watching), whereas
the rear “Volume” switch is for the installer (giving him/her the ability to choose an overall volume limit during
installation).
NOTE 2: When the soundbar is set to “Variable Source” (fixed soundbar) mode, these buttons are irrelevant and
therefore have no effect on the operation of the soundbar. Therefore, when “Variable Source” (fixed soundbar)
is selected, we recommend installing the Top Security Plate (included) because it will streamline the soundbar's
appearance, and it will eliminate the scenario in which the end-user presses the volume buttons atop the soundbar
and then becomes confused and frustrated by the volume remaining unaffected.
VOLUME UP
This button increases the volume of the soundbar.
VOLUME DOWN
This button decreases the volume of the soundbar.
MUTE
This button mutes the soundbar. Press and release to mute. Once muted, press and release this button again (or
Volume Up) to unmute.

VOLUME INDICATION
When the soundbar is set to “Fixed Source” (variable soundbar) mode, these 10 LEDs indicate the volume setting on the
soundbar.
When the soundbar is set to “Variable Source” (fixed soundbar) mode, these 10 LEDs are irrelevant and therefore will not
illuminate.
IR RECEIVER
When the soundbar is set to “Fixed Source” (variable soundbar) mode, IR commands (coming from a remote control) can
enter this IR receiver and cause the soundbar to alter its internal volume accordingly.
When the soundbar is set to “Variable Source” (fixed soundbar) mode, this IR receiver is irrelevant and therefore has no
effect on the volume of the soundbar—even in the presence of otherwise valid IR commands.

PSB-1 Owner's Manual
Programming the Soundbar to Respond to Any Remote
Programming the Soundbar to Respond to Any Remote
When dealing with a “fixed output only” TV, the remote must communicate directly with the soundbar (see "Volume
Control Schemes" on page 2).
Using the “IR Learning” feature, you can program the soundbar to respond to any remote’s volume-related IR commands
(volume Up/Down/Mute). This allows the end user to control the entire system with a single remote—whether it’s a nonprogrammable remote that came with the TV or a fully programmable third-party remote.
This feature is particularly useful when dealing with non-programmable remotes (e.g. the remote that came with the TV)
which otherwise would not be able to control the soundbar.
NOTE: Some steps will time out, so we recommend reading through this entire procedure before you begin.
Required steps:
1.
Ensure that the soundbar is powered on and in “Fixed Source” mode.
2.
Aim the remote at the IR receiver on the front panel of the soundbar from 12-36 inches (300 – 900 mm) away.
3.
On the soundbar, press and hold all 3 buttons (Up/Down/Mute) on the top panel for 7 or more seconds. After 7
seconds, the front-panel volume indicator will flash a pattern to indicate that the soundbar is now in IR Learning
mode.
a.
c.
c.
4.
To program Volume Up:
i.
Press and release Volume Up on the soundbar
ii.
Press and release Volume Up on the remote
To program Volume Down:
i.
Press and release Volume Down on the soundbar
ii.
Press and release Volume Down on the remote
To program Mute:
i.
Press and release Mute on the soundbar
ii.
Press and release Mute on the remote
To exit IR Learning mode, do one of the following:
a.
On the soundbar, press and hold Volume Down and Volume Up buttons (NOT mute) on the top panel for 7
or more seconds. After 7 seconds, the front-panel volume indicator will flash.
b.
Do not press any buttons on the soundbar for 30 seconds.
The remote control should now have volume control over the JBL® Professional SoundBar PSB-1.
5.
OPTIONAL BUT RECOMMENDED: In order to prevent end-user confusion from seeing two independent volume
indicators during volume adjustment (one indicator on the TV screen, plus another indicator on the soundbar's
front panel), we recommend doing one of the following:
a.
If using a non-programmable remote that came with the TV, disable the TV’s on-screen volume indication
(please consult your TV manual).
b.
If using a programmable remote, ensure the remote is issuing IR volume commands NOT recognized by the
TV.
PSB-1 Owner's Manual

Programming the Soundbar to Respond to Any Remote
To reset the IR Learning settings back to factory default, use the following sequence:
1.
Press and release Volume Up + Volume Down.
2.
Press and release Mute.
3.
Repeat the above two steps 4 more (i.e. 5 total) times.
In other words, follow these ten steps:
1.
Press and release Volume Up + Volume Down.
2.
Press and release Mute.
3.
Press and release Volume Up + Volume Down.
4.

Programming a Universal Remote to Control the Soundbar
Programming a Universal Remote to Control the Soundbar
When dealing with a “fixed output only” TV, it’s necessary for a remote to communicate directly with the soundbar (see
"Volume Control Schemes" on page 2).
If you have a programmable (AKA “universal”) remote, it can control the JBL® Professional SoundBar PSB-1 by issuing
the following IR codes:
Command
Code
Mute
8070H C1
Volume Up
8070H C7
Volume Down
8070H C8
If the above commands are not working for any reason, remember you also have the option of using the “IR Learning”
feature to issue virtually any IR Code to the soundbar in order to control its volume functions (see "Programming the
Soundbar to Respond to Any Remote" on page 9).

Troubleshooting
Troubleshooting
PROBLEM
"The soundbar is not producing sound."
SOLUTION
Ensure the soundbar is connected to a properly functioning power outlet. When connected to power, a front panel
LED will turn either amber or green. If the LED does not illuminate, there is a fault with the power outlet, the power
cord, or the soundbar unit itself. If the front panel LED illuminates amber, this means the device is in standby
mode. To bring the device out of standby mode, connect an audio source with active (and sufficiently loud) audio.
Once the audio is detected, the LED will change from amber to green, and the soundbar will begin producing
sound.
PROBLEM
"The soundbar is too quiet."
SOLUTION
First, ensure the "Volume" switch is set correctly (see "Volume Switch" on page 6). Next, ensure the soundbar
is in the correct mode (see "Volume Control Schemes" on page 2 and "Source Volume Switch" on page 5).
PROBLEM
"I've put the soundbar into "Variable mode", but the volume buttons aren't working. The front panel flashes every
time I press the volume buttons."
SOLUTION
There is no such thing as "variable mode". You've placed the soundbar into variable *SOURCE* mode. The
two "Volume Source" positions ("Variable "Source" and "Fixed Source") are labeled based on the TV's (i.e. the
source's) behavior, not the soundbar's behavior. So if you want the soundbar itself to have a variable volume,
choose "Fixed Source" instead.
