IMPORTANT:
The manufacturer will not accept liability for any resulting damages caused
by the non-observance of this manual or any unauthorised modification to the
equipment.
• Never let the power-cable come into contact with other cables. Handle the power-cable
and all mains voltage connections with particular caution!
• Never remove warning or informative labels from the equipment.
• Do not open the equipment and do not modify the equipment.
• Do not switch the equipment on and off in short intervals, as this will reduce the
system’s life.
• Only use the equipment indoors.
• Do not expose to flammable sources, liquids or gases.
• Do not carry the unit with only one handle. Always carry using both handles.
• Always disconnect the power from the mains when equipment is not in use or before
cleaning! Only handle the power-cable by the plug. Never pull out the plug by pulling the
power-cable.
• Make sure that the available voltage is between 220v/240v.
• Make sure that the power-cable is never crimped or damaged. Check the equipment and
the power-cable periodically.
• If the equipment is dropped or damaged, disconnect the mains power supply immediately.
Have a qualified engineer inspect the equipment before operating again.
• If the equipment has been exposed to drastic temperature fluctuation (e.g. after
transportation), do not switch it on immediately. The arising condensation might damage
the equipment. Leave the equipment switched off until it has reached room temperature.
• If your product fails to function correctly, discontinue use immediately. Pack the unit
securely (preferably in the original packing material), and return it to your Prolight dealer
for service.
• Only use fuses of same type and rating.
• Repairs, servicing and power connection must only be carried out by a qualified
technician. THIS UNIT CONTAINS NO USER SERVICEABLE PARTS.
• WARRANTY; One year from date of purchase.

Rack Installation
The EP Series is built for 19” racks (483mm). The rack you use should be a Double Door Rack
where you can open the front and rear panel. When mounting the amplifier into the rack, please
make sure that there is enough space around the amplifier.
Be careful when mounting the amplifier into the rack. Put the heaviest products into the lower part of
the rack. Be aware that fastening the amplifier with four screws on the front panel is not enough.
If the racks are being transported or used for mobile use, additionally fasten the products by
connecting the rear brackets with the side or ground bars of the rack. In this way, the amplifier
cannot be pushed backwards. The front panel is not designed to absorb acceleration forces
occuring during transportation.
Inputs
Short cables runs improve the sound quality remarkably. Input cables should be short and direct,
since high frequencies will mostly be absorbed if the cables are unnecessarily long. Besides that
a longer cable may lead to humming and noise problems. If the cable runs are unavoidable, you
should use balanced cables.
Outputs
The high damping factor of your amplifier supplies a clear sound reproduction.
Unnecessarily long and thin cables will influence the damping factor and thus the low frequencies in
a negative way. In order to safeguard good sound quality, the damping factor should lie around 50.
The longer a cable has to be the thicker it should be.
Connect your speaker systems via the speakon plugs or thr Bannana/Screw combination (red+,
black-)
Switch Adjustments
Ground Lift Switch - This switch allows the signal ground or chassis ground to be separated
in case of a ground conflict. For highest safety of the equipment, it is recommended to keep the
Ground Lift Switch in the GND FLOATING position. In case of a ground conflict please set the
ground lift switch to GND LIFT.
Connection To The Mains
Connect the amplifier only after having made sure that the right voltage (240V) is supplied and that
the ground lead is earthed. This product falls under Class 1. Do not detach the ground lead.

Operation
After having connected your amplifier to the mains, turn both gain controls counter clockwise to the
“min” position. The last product to be switched on is amplifier. The “ON” and “ PROTECT” LED
light up now. If it does not, check if the amplifier is connected to the mains correctly.
After the turn on delay the speakers are activated (PROTECT-LED is off).
After having set the volume controls of the pre-amplifier in nil position, turn the gain controls of your
amplifier to mid-position. Now adjust the volume with the gain controls CH A and CH B
All important operating modes of the amplifier are arranged on the front panel.
-20 dB to 30dB
Clip
Protect
Output level
Short circuit or ompedance too low or signal distorted
Active during stabilisation period after switching on or when one of the protective circuits are activated
If you want to switch off the system, switch off the amplifier first in order to avoid acoustic shocks
on the speakers.
