CONFIGURING THE CABINET DSP OPTIONS
From the buttons below the display on the cabinet’s back panel you are able to congure the Basic adjustment
functions of the internal DSP. Depending on the model, you can nd the following congurations:
Note:
You must apply the desired conguration in each one cabinet. This is done via the buttons located on the back
panel of the cabinet and requires electrical power to work.
FIR FILTERS
Finite Impulse Response (FIR) lters are used in the signal processing of the GR-12 cabinet. FIR is a type of digital lter with linear phase characteristics. This frees system designers from the constraints of phase anomalies
associated with analogue lters or their digital versions (IIR, Innite Impulse Response). When properly used,
FIR ltering can audibly improve a system’s impulse response and reduce crossover interference.

CONFIGURATION PANEL
On the back panel you will see 3 buttons and an information screen, on which you can read the established parameters and information such as amplication module temperature, input signal level and name of the current
preset (Fig1). If changes are not made the display will automatically dim to save energy and avoid unnecessary
light in situations where light is not wanted. To re-activate the light simply press the OK button.

ONLINE CONTROL SYSTEM
Who is it for?
Users of Self powered DSP incorporated Lynx Pro Audio Cabinets where the user has requested the cabinets
be supplied with the Ethernet Module kit.
What is it for?
Obtain detailed information of cabinet behaviour and monitor the cabinet/s in real time. You can change the
preset, gain, mute, polarity and phase. You can also activate the air absorption compensation and select the
«SOLO» mode.
How does it work?
Via Ethernet (cable or wireless). Once installed, the O.C.S. software automatically detects all the cabinets connected to the network and displays them in the O.C.S. window on the users PC.
What does it show?
As well as displaying the cabinet model and IP address the O.C.S will be monitoring in real time and the user
will be able to view RMS levels, Input clip, power module temperature, compression levels, air absorption compensation and cabinet angulation.

CONFIGURING ETHERNET TO WORK WITH THE GR-12
There are two possible ways to connect:
1.- Connecting through an ETHERNET SWITCH/HUB::
- You will need a normal CAT5 Cable.
2.- Connecting through a Wirless ETHERNET.
Let us now proceed to congure the Ethernet network, setting the IP address of the computer as static. To do this
go to:
START > CONFIGURATION > NETWORK CONFIGURATION
We will launch the properties of “Local
Area Connection” by clicking the right
mouse button and clicking on properties.

LYNX Pro Audio S.L. - Valencia, Spain -
www.lynxproaudio.com -info@lynxproaudio.com
GR-12
Select “Internet Protocol (TCP / IP)” and click on properties.
Select: “Use next IP Address” And write as you wish, in
order to congure your network.
Normally, Ip values will be something like this:
IP Address: 192.168.1.xxx
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Where xxx will be a number between 1 and 254
Accept to quit the network settings and again to apply
them at the next screen. Depending on the Windows
Version, you will be asked to reboot or not.
Once the Computer is congured with a static IP proceed
to connect to the line array system through the O.C.S.
(online control system) software.
Open the OCS Software and from the Initial Screen
choose Ethernet Device into the Conguration menu.
It will open a different screen, as follows, there you can see your Network conguration, and the cabinets currently connected.

If you want to change the IP in order to be able to connect to the cabinet then just select the cabinet and modify
the assigned IP.
By default, the Cabinet will have this IP 192.168.1.100
The Network enviroment consists in the rst 3 sets of three numbers separated by dots. In order to detect/communicate with the cabinets, the software and the cabinets must have the same Network settings.
If it is not in the same environment Windows Profesional (2000, XP, VISTA) will detect it, but is not going to be
able to establish connection. In Windows Home, the processor is not going to be detected until the same enviroment is applied.
In order to change the IP settings to have the same conguration as the PC, we can change the IP address of
the cabinets by clicking in the Assign IP to select Device button after writing in the box above the desired data.
Remember there cannot be two devices with exactly the same IP address, the last set of three numbers has to
be different and unique to each one of the devices.

GR-12
for example, write 192.168.1.101 and click “Change Device IP” button.
The OCS software will send the new IP to the cabinet and it will scan the network again showing the same information as before, plus more information such as Pc name, IP address and Port in which the communication
is established.
When we have a lot of cabinets connected in the network we can use the button “Identify Device” to see which
box is selected (two activity LEDS will blink for one second). With that information then we can “Change device
NAME” assigned to this Cabinet by clicking in the “Change Device Name” button after writing in the box above
the desired Name.
Returning to the main screen, we can see each cabinet showing: RMS levels, Input clip, power module temperature, compression levels, air absorption compensation and cabinet angulation, as well as displaying the cabinet
model and IP address.

If you need to know the PC Network settings go to:
START > ALL PROGRAMS > ACCESSORIES > Command Prompt
It will open the cmd.exe from where you can type the IPCONFIG command ( ipcong + Enter), which will show
your actual IP settings.
Here we can see that this PC has IP set as 192.168.2.99.

You can also use the command promt to know if an IP is already in use by another device. In this case type
“ping IP” (ping 192.168.2.xxx) and press enter. If there is no device with this IP you will see the following infor-
If the IP is in use, the device will respond to the Ping, and we will obtain this information:
You now have the Cabinets working in the ETHERNET Network Enviroment.
