CONSTANT VOLTAGE VS LOW IMPEDANCE SPEAKER

SYSTEMS

A constant voltage speaker system differs from a traditional low impedance (e.g., 8ohm) speaker system in that it uses a step-up transformer at the audio source to raise the voltage and lower the current on the transmission line. At the speaker end, a stepdown transformer converts the signal back to a normal speaker level voltage. This reduces power loss during transmission, which allows for the use of longer speaker wire runs using smaller gauge wire.

11

Additionally, a constant voltage speaker system allows for the use of multiple speakers on each channel, without the need for complicated impedance calculations and configurations. In a constant voltage system, all speakers on a given channel are connected in parallel and the complicated impedance calculations are replaced by a simple wattage calculation.

For example, if you want to connect two speakers per channel in a traditional 8-ohm speaker system, you must either connect them in series, which results in an overall 16ohm impedance, or in parallel, which results in an overall 4-ohm impedance. In the first case, the 16-ohms impedance effectively halves the output power of your amplifier, resulting in lower overall volume levels. In the latter case, the 4-ohms impedance means that your amplifier will have to work harder and must be rated as stable at 4 ohms.

Adding a third speaker to the mix would complicate it further, producing either a 24ohm or 2.67-ohm overall impedance. Note that very few amplifiers are stable under 2ohm loads, so that is usually not an option.

On the other hand, with a constant voltage system, you consider first the RMS output wattage of the amplifier. This should be reduced by 20% to compensate for insertion loss. Each individual speaker on a given channel is set to a value such that the total does not exceed the rated power, less 20%. You do not need to worry about making the total as close as possible to the limit; just ensure that the total does not exceed the limit. For example, with this 120-watt amplifier, the total load from the speakers should not exceed 96 watts.

If all speakers are set to the same wattage value, they will all have the same volume level. If one speaker is set to a higher wattage value, it will be louder than the others, while a speaker set to a smaller value will be quieter than the others. This allows you to compensate for the environment in which the speaker is placed. For example, a speaker placed outside would need to be louder than a speaker placed in a small room.

12

INSTALLATION

Speaker Connections

This amplifier supports four separate output zones, each driven by a dedicated 120-watt amplifier. You can connect speaker arrays with an overall 4-ohm impedance or constant voltage speaker arrays at 70 or 100 volts.

1.

Create up to four individual speaker arrays. If using low-impedance speakers, ensure that the overall impedance of the array is 4 ohms. If using 70 or 100 volt speakers, set the wattage value on each speaker to something that produces a total load of 96 watts or less.

2.

Lift the bottom of the terminal cover over the Zone 1 OUTPUT connectors. Using a flat head or Phillips screwdriver, loosen the COM screw, then loosen the 4Ω,

70V, or 100V screw, depending on the type of speaker array being connected.

Note that only one type of connection can be used for each zone.

3.

Insert the stripped end of the negative speaker wire lead for the first speaker array under the COM screw plate, then tighten the screw.

4.

5.

Flip the terminal cover back for the OUTPUT terminals and press on the bottom to click it into place.

6.

Repeat steps 2-5 for each other Zone.

13

Line Out Connections

Each zone features a balanced/unbalanced line output that will mirror the speaker output. You can then connect this output to the input of another amplifier for more speakers in larger spaces, a subwoofer for better low-end response, mixer, an audio recorder, or other device with line level inputs. This example will use Zone 1, but applies to other Zones.

1.

Prepare your balanced or unbalanced connecting cable. If connecting to a TRS or

XLR input, you should make a balanced connection. If connecting to an RCA or

TS input, you must make an unbalanced connection.

2.
