We take this opportunity to thank you for buying this product.

We recommend you read the instruction manual before switching on the machine and follow the instructions that are given. Keep the manual for future reference.

SECURITY AND THE ENVIRONMENT

ELECTRICAL SECURITY

Check that the current in the mains connection where the machine is to be installed corresponds to the power supply of the machine.

To avoid damaging the equipment, electrical shocks, fire or physical injury when you connect or disconnect the equipment from the power supply, pull the plug firmly out of the mains socket holding the plug, never the cable.

Always do this with dry hands.

Keep the power supply cable far from sources of heat. Do not put heavy objects on top of it or change it.

Clean dust and dirt off the power supply cable regularly.

Do not open the machine; you could get an electric shock.

CAUTION

While installing the machine, make sure it is switched off and unplugged.

Do not open the machine. Touching the internal parts is dangerous and you could receive an electric shock.

The machine must not be splashed or dripped on. Never place recipients with liquid inside on the machine.

Do not place anything inside the machine.

LOCATION

Place the equipment on a horizontal surface with enough space around it to allow ventilation.

Avoid direct sunlight, heat sources and excessive dust.

Do not place the machine near magnetic fields or static electricity.

Do not use surfaces which vibrate or receive impact.

Do not pile machines on top of one another.

VENTILATION

Never block or cover the ventilation slits on the machine.

Do not expose it to direct sunlight or place it near sources of heat.

PERIODS OF INACTIVITY

When the machine is not going to be used for a long period of time, disconnect it from the mains.

If you are using an adapter, take into account that it will continue using electricity even if the machine is switched off. If it is not going to be used for a long period of time, disconnect it from the mains.

THE ENVIRONMENT

To save energy, switch the machine off when you are not going to use it for a long time. The machine could contain substances that are harmful to the environment or human health. To minimize the effect of these substances the machine must be correctly managed and recycled when you decide to dispose of it. 

When you dispose of it remember: it cannot be thrown into a conventional rubbish bin.

If it contains or uses batteries, these must be disposed of separately.

The machine (without batteries) must be disposed of correctly. Put it in a container specially intended for the collection of electronic and electrical appliances, at the dump or hand it over to the dealer when you purchase similar equipment, so that the dealer can dispose of it correctly (at no added cost).

SIGNIFICANCE OF THE SYMBOLS ON THE MACHINE*

The  symbol  formed  by  the  expression  “Class  1  laser  product”  written  in  a  rectangle indicates that visible or invisible laser radiation could be produced. Avoid direct exposure to the laser.

The symbol formed by a ray of lightening inside a triangle shows that the machine has connection terminals or a circuit with areas with a current which could cause an electric shock, even in normal working conditions.

The symbol formed by an exclamation mark in a triangle shows that the instruction manual must be referred to for information on how the machine works and its use.

The  symbol  formed  by  one  square  inside  another  square  shows  that  the  machine  has double electrical insulation.

The  European  Community  symbol  shows  that  the  machine  complies  with  the  current

European Union legislation, as well as its transposition to local legislation.

The symbol of a rubbish bin crossed out and over a horizontal line shows that when the product is disposed of it must be done properly, placing it in a special selective electronic and electrical equipment container or through a dealer when purchasing a similar product, at no additional cost. It also shows that the machine was put on the market after 13th

August  2005  (European  Community  Directive  2012/19/EU  of  Electrical  and  Electronic recycling, and its Spanish equivalent R.D.219/2013).

In accordance with what is set out in the aforementioned decree, FONESTAR is registered in  the  RAEE  (Registro  de  Aparatos  Eléctricos  y  Electrónicos)  in  a  special  section  REI

(Registro de establecimientos Industriales), with the entry number 001851.

The symbol RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) shows that the product has been designed  and  manufactured  restricting  the  use  of  certain  dangerous  material(Directive

2011/65/EU on the restriction of certain dangerous substances in electrical and electronic appliances, and its transferal to the Spanish regulations, R.D. 219/2013).

*It is possible that some of these symbols do not appear on the machine.

DESCRIPTION

Monaural power amplifier, 700 W maximum, 600 W RMS with low impedance 4-8 Ω speaker outputs and high impedance 100 and 70 V lines. Suitable for P.A. and sound system applications.

Balanced auxiliary line level signal input and bridge output, both with XLR and 6.3 mm stereo jack connectors. 

Automatic compression function for the input signal, avoiding distortion in the output when the input signal has high levels and automatically decreases the output signal if the temperature in the amp exceeds certain limits.

It also has LED indicators to see how the amp is operating and its state: LED power, temperature, protection, signal peak and output signal indicators.

Three temperature, output short circuit and overload protection circuits, are activated when an anomaly is detected in its operation and therefore cutting off the output to avoid damaging it.

To equalize the output, the amp has a 3-band tone control. 

CONTROLS AND FUNCTIONS

FRONT PANEL

1.POWER : LED power indicator.

2.Power switch : switches the power amp on and off.

3.PROT : LED protection indicator. It lights up when amp protection is activated due to overload or shortcircuit. With protection activated the audio output is cut off.

4.TEMP : LED temperature protection indicator. It lights up when protection for excess temperature inside the amp is activated. The audio output is cut off when the protection is activated.

5.CLIP : LED signal peak indicator. It lights up when the distortion exceeds 0.5 % due to the output signal being very high. If it only lights up a little or occasionally, the output volume must be reduced, in this case the compression function is working. If the LED indicator stays alight continuously, it is due to the input signal being very high and passing the compression function range; the input signal volume must be reduced.

6.SIGNAL : LED output signal indicator. It lights up when the output is over 200 mV.

7.TREBLE : treble tone control ±12 dB.

8.MID : mid tone control ±12 dB.

9.BASS : bass tone control ±12 dB.

10.MASTER : output volume control.

BACK PANEL

1.BREAKER : resettable fuse, 6 A. When the amp is overloaded or there is a surge, the fuse will blow to avoid damage. It is reset by pressing it.

2.COM : speaker output common terminal (mass).

NOTE : do not connect to the earth.

3.4 Ω, 8 Ω, 70 V and 100 V : speaker output terminals. Use only one output depending on the charge impedance:  4-8 Ω low impedance lines or 100 or 70 V high impedance lines. Connect the speakers between the COM terminal and one of the output terminals; 4 Ω, 8 Ω, 70 V or 100 V.

NOTE : use only one output.

4.AC INPUT : mains input.

5.INPUT : balanced auxiliary line level signal input. With XLR and 6.3 mm stereo jack connectors. Use just one input connector.

6.LINK : balanced auxiliary line level signal output. With XLR and 6.3 mm stereo jack connectors. Another power amp can be connected in cascade.

7.- Fan: speeds up the air circulation inside the amplifier to reduce the temperature. The air circulates from the front to the back. The fan speed depends on the temperature. Do not obstruct the ventilation slots.

CONNECTION

Connect the speakers to the speaker output. Use the 4-8 Ω low impedance output or the high impedance

100 or 70 V line output, depending on the type of speakers you are going to connect. Do not use both types of output at the same time.

If you use the low impedance output, you must connect the speakers in a series/parallel circuit so that the charge impedance in the speakers is the same as the amplifier output impedance and the power supplied by the amplifier does not exceed what is withstood by the speakers.

If you use the high impedance 100 or 70 V lines, you must connect all the speakers in parallel and the sum of the power of all the speakers must not exceed the power supplied by the amplifier.

Once all the connections have been made in accordance with your needs, connect the equipment to the mains and switch it on. After use, do not forget to switch the equipment off and disconnect it from the mains.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE

ON AND OFF

Before switching the power amplifier on, check that the output volume control is at its minimum. Switch on the rest of the audio system, and lastly switch on the power amp and adjust the output volume.

To switch the audio system off, turn the power amp volume to its minimum and switch it off. Then switch off the rest of the audio system.

PROTECTION

The power amp has 3 types of protection: temperature, short circuit in the speaker outputs and overload.

When one type of protection is activated, an LED indicator lights up on the front panel and the audio output is cut. In this case, switch the power amp off, check the cause of the protection activation, let the equipment rest for a while and switch it on again.

AUTOMATIC COMPRESSION FUNCTION

To avoid output distorsion and the amp overheating, the compression function automatically decreases the input signal level when it is very high or when the temperature of the amplifier is very high.

LED protection indicators

RESETTABLE FUSE

The power supply source is made up of advanced components that absorb the current peaks and remove fluctuations caused when the power amp is turned on. Furthjermore, the amplifier is equipped with a 6 A resettable BREAKER fuse on the back panel.

If the fuse blows, due to a surge or excessive consumption, switch the amplifier off, check the cause of the blown fuse, let the equipment rest for a while and then reset the BREAKER fuse by pressing it.
