Installation and Setup
Placement Guidelines
•
ProFusion XS is designed to be placed horizontally and right-side up. Other positions may cause problems with air flow within the case and may significantly shorten the lifespan of the components.
•
ProFusion XS should be placed in a clean, well-ventilated area. Do not stack items on or against your ProFusion XS as this can create excessive heat and/or static electricity charge problems.
•
ProFusion XS should only be placed on a surface of adequate strength and stability and free of excessive vibration.
•
Ensure all cabling is routed properly and safely. This will avoid tripping hazards that could pull your ProFusion XS off the surface you have placed it on.
•
Ensure your ProFusion XS is plugged into a properly grounded, always-on AC electrical outlet.
Note: Do not plug your ProFusion XS into a switched outlet, such as power strips or other outlets
that may be inadvertently turned off. This can lead to improper shutdowns which will likely shorten
the life of the equipment.
Rack Placement
•
If your ProFusion XS is going to be installed in a rack, at least 6½” (16.5 cm) (4RU) vertical rack space will be required.
•
Do not improvise a rack mount solution; instead, install a rack shelf suitable for approximately 20 lbs (9.1 kg) of weight, and place your ProFusion XS on the shelf.
Note: ProFusion XS has been designed to be mounted in a rack. Please contact DMX Customer
Service if you would like to order a rackmount kit. See “Appendix E: Contact DMX” (p. 28).

•
Turn off your amplification equipment and turn the volume completely down before installing your ProFusion XS.
•
Your ProFusion XS should not be plugged into the AC outlet found on the rear of some audio amplifica-
tion equipment due to potential grounding issues. Only plug your ProFusion XS into properly grounded electrical outlets.
•
To avoid being inadvertently powered off, never plug your ProFusion XS into a switched outlet.
Connecting your ProFusion XS to your amplification equipment:
STEP 1 Connect one end of the RCA audio cable with the white plugs into the white RCA jack labeled Zone 1
on the rear panel of your ProFusion XS. Connect the other end of the RCA cable into the corresponding input of your amplification equipment.
Note: If your ProFusion XS is configured for only one zone, the audio for that zone will output from
both the Zone 1 and Zone 2 RCA jacks. Connect one end of the RCA audio cable with the red plugs
into the red RCA jack labeled “Zone 2” on the rear panel of your ProFusion XS. Connect the other
end of the RCA cable into the corresponding input of your amplification equipment.
STEP 2
If your ProFusion XS has been configured for a second zone of audio, connect the red RCA plug of the audio cable into the RCA jack labeled Zone 2 (red jack) on the rear panel of your ProFusion XS. Connect the other end of the RCA cable (red plug) into the corresponding input of your amplification equipment.
STEP 3 If your ProFusion XS has been configured for a third zone of audio, repeat step 1. If your ProFusion XS has been configured for a third and forth zone of audio, repeat steps 1 and 2.
Note: If your ProFusion XS is configured for three zones, the audio output for Zone 3 will also output
the Zone 4 RCA jack. Connect one end of the RCA audio cable with the red plugs into the red RCA
jack labeled “Zone 4” on the rear panel of your ProFusion XS. Connect the other end of the RCA
cable into the corresponding input of your amplification equipment.
Connecting ProFusion XS to Your Network
Connecting your ProFusion XS to your company’s network:
STEP 1 Connect one end of a CAT5 Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port located on the rear panel of your Pro-
Fusion XS.
STEP 2 Connect the other end of the CAT5 Ethernet cable to your network equipment (router, hub, or switch).
