Section 2: Introduction
Congratulations on your purchase of the JBL MSC1 Monitor System Controller,
a unique product that combines the essential "Monitor Strip" functions found in
large mixing consoles with JBL’s highly acclaimed RMCTM Room Mode Correction
technology, that allows any connected speaker system to be automatically tuned
to your room. The end result is a calibrated reference environment in which your
speakers work in harmony with your room to take the guesswork out of mixing. As
the hub of your system, the MSC1 provides these powerful capabilities:
Mixing Console "Monitor Strip" Functions
• Monitor using two sets of stereo speakers.
• Monitor with and without a connected subwoofer* – The MSC1 automatically
balances the subwoofer and gives you a choice of cross-over settings for proper
integration of your subwoofer into your speaker system.
• Connect up to three 2-channel signal sources, and select the source to be
monitored.
• Send a headphone feed to a performer, or use headphones in the control room
to monitor program material.
• Tailor the frequency response of your speakers using flexible high and low
frequency EQ.*
JBL RMC Room Mode Correction
With the supplied MSC1 Control Center Software and MSC1 calibration microphone,
the MSC1 tunes the low frequency response of the speaker system* to compensate
for inaccuracies measured at the listening position caused by room modes (standing
waves) and the speakers proximity to walls, and the work surface.
Supplied MSC1 Control Center Software
Install the supplied MSC1 Control Center software on your computer to perform
RMC Calibration, adjust equalizer settings, speaker level and delay, and fine tune
a connected subwoofer.*
*Note: the processing functions of the MSC1 Room Mode Correction, EQ, subwoofer
settings, speaker level and delay are available on "A" SPEAKER OUTPUTS. Flat,
unprocessed signal is routed to "B" SPEAKER OUTPUTS. The subwoofer output is muted
when "B" SPEAKER OUTPUTS are selected.
We know that very few people read owner’s manuals from cover to cover, so we’ve
organized this one to make it easy to find the information you need.

Section 4: Setting Up Your MSC1
Power Connections
Connect the MSC1 power adaptor to the POWER Connector on the
rear of the MSC1. Plug the power adaptor into a suitable available
power source. To minimize the potential for "ground-related" noise, we
recommend connecting MSC1 to the same power source as the audio
equipment and computers connected to the MSC1.
12VDC 500mA
Audio Connections
The MSC1 Monitor System Controller is equipped with balanced 6.5mm
(1/4 inch) TRS (Tip-Ring-Sleeve) output connectors for the connection of two
stereo speaker systems (labeled "A" and "B"), plus a dedicated balanced 6.5mm
(1/4 inch) TRS connector for the connection of a subwoofer to system A.
In addition, three pairs of input connectors are provided: two pairs of balanced
6.5mm (1/4 inch) TRS connectors, labeled A and B, and one unbalanced pair
of PHONO (RCA) connectors, labeled C, allowing the MSC1 to be used with
a wide variety of professional computer audio interfaces, soundcards, mixing
consoles and audio production equipment, as well as consumer audio products
with unbalanced outputs such as personal music players, receivers and audio
visual equipment. Finally, a stereo 6.5mm (1/4 inch) stereo headphone output
with dedicated front-panel volume control allows you to send a headphone feed
to a performer or monitor audio using headphones in the control room.
. Note: Two additional rear-panel stereo 3.5mm (1/8 inch) audio connectors, labeled
"RMC MIC IN" and "RMC MIC OUT," are used only during RMC calibration.
See page 14 in this manual for more information.
Note: To avoid audible noise, make audio connections with speakers and MSC1
powered off.
The following illustration shows various suggested MSC1 audio interconnections.
The use of balanced cabling is recommended when connecting the MSC1 to
equipment with balanced inputs and outputs as it ensures the best possible
signal-to-noise performance. Additionally, use of unbalanced cable in systems
with balanced inputs and outputs can reduce system gain by as much as 6 dB.
Confirm the settings of controls on connected speakers and subwoofer:
• Speaker and subwoofer volume controls should be set to maximum setting.
• If the Subwoofer includes a crossover control, it should be set to the highest
available frequency.
• Speaker tone controls may be used, but we recommend these are bypassed
prior to RMC calibration and restored according to taste, after RMC calibration
(See MSC1 Control Center Software User’s Guide).

Note: If INPUT SELECT switch 2 is depressed (set to the C position), the MSC1 will
always be monitoring Input C, regardless of the position of INPUT SELECT 1 , even if
nothing is physically connected to Input C.
Finally, send audio signal from the
device connected to the selected
input and slowly advance the
MSC1 VOLUME control until you
achieve a suitable listening level.
If necessary, adjust the MSC1 INPUT

Section 5: Features and Operation
8. INPUT LEDs – These LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) provide visual indication
of incoming signal. The SIGNAL LED illuminates whenever signal of any
strength is present at the selected input (see #6 above). The CLIP LED
illuminates when signal is within 3 dB of the MSC1 maximum level output. It is
acceptable for this LED to illuminate occasionally. If the CLIP LED illuminates
frequently or continuously, reduce the setting of the INPUT TRIM Control
or use available level controls on the connected equipment to reduce the
equipment output level.
9. RMC ON Control – Once RMC calibration has been performed this button
allows you to quickly and easily compare the "A" SPEAKER OUTPUT signal
with and without Room Mode Correction. When illuminated, signal is sent to
speakers connected to "B" SPEAKER OUTPUTS with RMC processing applied.
(See the MSC1 Control Center Software User's Guide.) Press this button again
(no illumination) to hear the signal without RMC.
10. EQ ON Control – Activates or deactivates MSC1 EQ available for speakers
connected to the "A" SPEAKER OUTPUT. When illuminated, an equalized
signal is sent to the speakers connected to "A" SPEAKER OUTPUT.
Press again (no illumination) to listen to the "A" speakers without equalization.
(See the MSC1 Control Center Software User's Guide.)
Note: EQ is applied to the Left and Right speakers connected to "A" SPEAKER
OUTPUTS only. Equalization does not affect Speakers connected to "B" SPEAKER
OUTPUTS nor the Subwoofer or headphones.
Note: If enabled, the RMC and / or EQ Controls flash repeatedly instead of illuminating
steadily when "B" SPEAKER OUTPUTS are selected because EQ processing is
available on "A" SPEAKER OUTPUTS only.
12
Section 5: Features and Operation
11. SUB ON control – If a subwoofer is connected to the SUB Output "A", and
the "A" speakers are being monitored, this control allows you to quickly
and easily listen to "A" speakers with and without a subwoofer. When the
subwoofer is included in the system, Bass Management Crossover filters
are applied that route low frequency signals below the crossover frequency
to the subwoofer and signals above the crossover frequency to the Left
and Right speakers. When the SUB control is illuminated, the subwoofer
is heard. When the control is not illuminated, the subwoofer is muted and
the Left and Right speakers play a full range signal. Subwoofer Level and
Bass Management crossover are set using MSC1 Control Center software.
Three Bass Management crossover frequencies are provided and the MSC1
ships with an 80 Hz Bass Management crossover selected and subwoofer
gain set to 0 dB (no additional boost or attenuation). (See the MSC1 Control
Center Software User's Guide.)
Note: If your subwoofer has a crossover frequency control, the control should be set to
the highest available frequency.
Note: The SUB control will flash repeatedly instead of illuminating steadily when
Speaker Output B is selected because a connected subwoofer can be heard only when
Speaker Output A is selected
12. MUTE control – When illuminated, mutes all output signal from the MSC1,
including the headphone output.

Section 8: Reference
JBL RMC™ Room Mode Correction:
About RMC
The biggest challenge for anyone producing audio is creating a mix that sounds
great on all playback systems. If you think of a monitoring system as a kind of "lens"
through which you hear sound, the object is to have the lens be crystal-clear and
transparent so that it imparts no coloration whatsoever to the signal being played
back. However, every loudspeaker system, no matter how well designed, interacts
with the room in which it is installed. Lack of correct acoustic treatment (or, worse
yet, lack of any treatment at all) can result in anomalies such as low-frequency
"standing waves"—the aural equivalent to the lens being "smeared." Trying to
create a mix in such an environment can be as frustrating and difficult as trying to
paint a masterpiece while blindfolded.
JBL’s exclusive RMC Room Mode Correction technology is designed to solve the
problem. It uses the power of your computer to analyze the acoustic conditions of your
room RMC then compensates for low frequency inaccuracies in the listening space
by having the MSC1 precisely insert filters so that signals arrive at the mix position
with the intended frequency response. By making precise corrections, RMC allows
you to create reliable mixes that translate to any environment. Space limitations in
the work environment may prevent ideal positioning of the Left and Right speakers
and subwoofer. The MSC1 allows you to precisely trim the level of each connected
speaker, and apply delay to compensate for differences in placement relative to the
mix position, ensuring balanced mixes regardless of speaker placement.
Performing an RMC Calibration
The supplied MSC1 Control Center software, MSC1 Calibration Microphone, and
accessory cables are required to perform an RMC calibration. Refer to the supplied
MSC1 Control Center Software Users Guide for full instructions.
Subwoofer Bass Management Crossover
Adding a subwoofer to your system will extend the frequency response of
the main speakers. "Bass management" is a term that refers to the practice of
removing bass signals from the Left and Right speakers and sending them to the
subwoofer. Because of the physiology of the human ear, low frequencies are largely
non-directional: given an adequate listening distance, we can’t easily tell where
bass signals are coming from. Thus, it makes little or no difference to the listening
experience whether the bass component of a sound comes from the Left or Right
channel speaker or from a dedicated subwoofer which is better equipped, and better
positioned in the room, to reproduce low frequencies than even a full range monitor.
Beyond the fact that a subwoofer is designed for the optimal reproduction of low
frequencies, bass management can also be used to solve acoustic problems in a
room: having all the low frequency signals come from a single source can eliminate
low frequency phase cancellation that occurs when the same low frequency signal
is reproduced by multiple speakers. The MSC1 SUB Control allows you to easily
enable or disable the Subwoofer and Bass Management system.
24
Section 8: Reference
In addition to allowing connection of a subwoofer, the MSC1 includes sophisticated
Bass Management Crossover with a choice of three crossover frequencies, to precisely
integrate the subwoofer into your system. When the SUB Control is Illuminated, the
SUB output is enabled and the MSC1 Bass Management Crossover is engaged. When
the control is not illuminated, the subwoofer output is muted and the Left and Right
speakers return to full-range operation. Three crossover settings are provided and can
be set using the MSC1 Control Center software: 60 Hz, 80 Hz and 120 Hz. Also, using
the software, the subwoofer level can be increased or decreased by 10 dB. Finally,
during RMC calibration, the sub is automatically balanced to the speaker system.
Equalization
Equalization can be applied to speakers connected to the Left and Right "A"
SPEAKER OUTPUTS to tailor response to preference, or acoustic conditions
in the room.
The MSC1 offers two bands of equalization (high and low frequency
shelving type), with up to 3 dB of attenuation or boost in each band. Using the
supplied MSC1 Control Center software, the corner frequency for each band is
adjustable from 34 Hz to 1.1 kHz (LF) and 2.5 kHz and 17 kHz (HF).
To turn equalization on, press the EQ button so that it is illuminated. Equalization
settings are accomplished, and presets can be created using the supplied
MSC1 Control Center software.
Delay and Level Trim
Left and Right Speakers and a subwoofer connected to the "A" SPEAKER OUTPUTS
can be level-matched and independently delayed to compensate for differences in
placement relative to the listening position. These adjustments can be made using
a computer and supplied MSC1 Control Center software.
Left and Right speaker levels can be independently attenuated up to 12 dB in .25
dB increments. The subwoofer level can be adjusted +/- 10 dB in .25 dB increments,
allowing it to be finely balanced in the system.
Left and Right speakers and the subwoofer can also be independently delayed
which can be useful if, out of necessity, the left and right speakers differ in distance
from the listening position. The application of delay to the closer of the two speakers
will restore strongest possible stereo image by allowing sound from both speakers
to arrive at the ears at precisely the same time, regardless of physical positioning.
Delaying the subwoofer, or the Left and Right speakers relative to the subwoofer,
can enhance the low frequency performance of the system by virtually aligning
the subwoofer with the main speakers. Delay units are expressed in values of
distance, from 0 feet (0 cm) to a distance of 3.75 ft. (114 cm) in 1 inch (2.54 cm)
increments. The subwoofer can be delayed from 0 ft. (0 cm) to 3.17 ft (96.6 cm).
For example, applying a delay value of 1 ft. (30.45 cm) to a speaker will cause the
audio from that speaker to sound as if it originates 1 foot farther away relative to
the other speakers.
25
Section 9: Troubleshooting
No sound
• Confirm that the power cable is connected and that the MSC1 is powered on
(POWER LED is illuminated).
• Confirm that a signal source is connected and producing sound and the INPUT
SELECT switches are set correctly. (Note that if the INPUT SELECT switch
2 is depressed [set to the C position], you will always be monitoring Input C,
regardless of the position of the INPUT SELECT 1 , even if no signal is physically
connected to INPUT C.)
• Confirm connected speaker system is powered on and the SPEAKER SELECT
switch is set correctly.
• Confirm that the MUTE button is not illuminated.
• Make sure the MSC1 VOLUME control is not set to the fully counter clockwise
("-∞") position.
System "hum"
• If you hear "hum" noise in your system, try connecting all signal source equipment,
the computer and speakers to the same electrical power outlet. (Do not connect
equipment with total power requirements that exceed the capabilities the provided
power source). If after doing this you still hear hum, you can try "grounding" the
MSC1 to an available ground source. To do this, use a Philips head screw driver
to loosen the ground screw on the bottom of the MSC1. Attach an insulated wire
to the screw and tighten the screw. Connect the other end of the wire to different
ground points of your audio system to find and achieve the best performance.
Rear
Ground Screw
Left and Right Speakers lack low frequency response
• If no subwoofer is connected, confirm SUB Control is not illuminated.
No subwoofer signal
• Confirm that a subwoofer is connected to Sub "A" output and is powered on, it’s
Front
volume control is set to maximum,
and it’s crossover control is set to the highest
available crossover setting.
• Confirm that the SUB control is illuminated.
• Confirm that the SPEAKER SELECT switch is set to "A". (A connected Subwoofer
is heard only when "A" SPEAKER OUTPUTS are selected)
26
Section 9: Troubleshooting
Subwoofer is not loud enough
• Use MSC1 Control Center software to adjust subwoofer level and Bass
Management Crossover settings.
• If your system incorporates different models or brands of speakers and subwoofer
it may be necessary to adjust the subwoofer level or Left and Right Speaker
levels to balance the Sub in the system.
No difference in sound when the RMC control is activated or deactivated
• Using the supplied MSC1 Control Center software, confirm that RMC calibration
has been performed.
• Confirm that the SPEAKER SELECT switch is set to "A". (RMC processing is
available when the "A" SPEAKER OUTPUTS are selected.)
No difference in sound when the EQ control is activated or deactivated
• Using the supplied MSC1 Control Center software, confirm that an EQ setting
has been made. (See MSC Control Center Software User’s Guide.)
• Confirm that the SPEAKER SELECT switch is set to "A". (EQ affects only signal
sent to "A" SPEAKER OUTPUTS.)
RMC, EQ, and SUB buttons flash when pressed instead of illuminating steadily
• The SPEAKER SELECT switch is set to "B". (Processed signal (RMC
and/or EQ) and subwoofer signal is heard only when routing signal to
"A" SPEAKER OUTPUTS. Only flat, unprocessed signal is routed to
"B" SPEAKER OUTPUTS.)
The CLIP LED is illuminated consistently and/or distorted sound is heard
• Output level of the equipment connected to the selected input is too high.
To remedy this do one of the following:
1. Reduce the setting of the INPUT TRIM control.
2. Reduce the output level of the connected equipment using available output
level control on the equipment.
3. If the CLIP LED illuminates with input "C" selected, disconnect the equipment
from Input C and reconnect the equipment to Input "A" or "B", which are
designed to accept greater signal levels.
If the above measures do not correct the problem, please contact JBL Professional
Customer Service (see page 26 in this manual for more information).
27
Section 9: Troubleshooting
Restoring Factory Settings
Some MSC1 features are set using MSC1 Control Center software. The Factory
Reset procedure restores the features to original default settings. Using the Factory
Reset procedure, the following features, available for speakers connected to "A"
SPEAKER OUTPUTS, are reset:
• Equalization
• Sub Bass Management Crossover
• Subwoofer Level
• Subwoofer Polarity
• Individual level trim for Left and Right Speakers
• Speaker Delay settings
To perform Factory Reset, follow this procedure:
Press and hold the MSC1 front panel RMC control for 6 seconds, until the MUTE and
RMC controls begin to flash. Continue to press the RMC control, and simultaneously
press the MUTE control. Then release both buttons.
