TRx3010A
TRx3018A
The TRx3010A and TRx3018A are active 2500W, X-Drive™ DSP
processed subwoofer systems with an additional amplifier output to
power external cabinets. The TRx3010A uses dual long-excursion
TSUB10 woofers with 2.5-inch voice coils. The TRx3018A uses a
cast frame TS18B woofer with a 23mm, inside/outside wound, 4-inch
voice coil. Optimized presets for several Carvin cabinets are factory
programmed for simple connect, select and play.
ACTIVE 2500W SYSTEM
The 2500W active X-Drive™ DSP processed module provides a
1500W bridged amplifier for the internal woofers and an additional
1000W amplifier output for external main cabinets. The internal
X-Drive™ DSP processing maximizes performance output and protection using up to 48dB/oct crossover filters, parametric EQ, alignment
delay and limiters. Turn on the Enhanced Bass and the ultra low end
will come alive, lowering the cabinet’s frequency range by another
15Hz and boosting the 35-50Hz response. The DSP will control the
output to keep this added response within the limits of the speaker.
CONNECT, SELECT AND PLAY
The external amplifier output is ideal for powering two TRx3903’s
for a full range TRC-A system or up to two TRx2115’s, TRx3210’s,
TRx12N’s, SCx1115’s or any top main cabinets down to 4 ohm. The
internal X-Drive™ DSP has been set up to maximize performance
output of the preset Carvin cabinets. Don’t have a Carvin main or
not finding your cabinet? Simply go to the “Variable X-Over” preset,
select the crossover frequency and you are ready to go. Don’t need to
power a top cabinet? Go to the “Sub only” preset, select the crossover
frequency for the sub and you are ready to go.
CORNERSTONE OF THE TRC-A COLUMN SYSTEMS
The TRC-A (active) column systems are compact powerful live
sound systems, with the TRx3010A or TRx3018A as the cornerstone
for system amplification and DSP processing. The TRx3903 columns
complete the system’s mid to high frequency coverage to produce wide
and clear sound reinforcement. Each TRx3010A or TRx3018A can drive
two TRx3903 column elements. The internal X-Drive™ DSP processor maximizes performance output, so all you need to do is select the
TRx3903 preset, plug in the speakers and play. These systems are
small enough to fit in a midsize hatchback, but large enough to fill a
large banquet hall with a full band.
FLEXIBLE AND FAST SYSTEM SETUP
The TRx3010A and TRx3018A feature foot locating holes on top for
stacking another TRx3010A (or) TRx3018A, and allow stacking up
to 4 TRx3210 line array elements without hardware. The TRx3010A
can be used flat, or on it’s side for a smaller footprint. The top or side
TRx3010A pole mounts and center TRx3018A pole mount can suspend
two stacked TRx3903’s or any standard 1-3/8th pole mount equipped
cabinet. Two additional pole mounts on the TRx3018A match the 16”
spaced dual pole system for suspending two TRx3210’s, or allow
mounting two speakers side by side for wider coverage.

1. POWER SWITCH (reset)
10. PROTECT LED
2. POWER LED
11. SATELLITE SPEAKER OUTPUT
Push the upper portion of the power switch to turn the system on. If
the blue POWER indicator is on but there is no sound or the Protect
LED is on, reset, turn the power off for 10 seconds and then turn it
back on. If the problem persists, check for; a) lack of Input signal,
b) external speaker impedance being too low for the amp, c) bad
speaker cable, d) damaged speaker, or e) blocked fan intake.
The POWER LED indicates the unit is turned on and functioning
properly.
3. SIGNAL LED
The SIGNAL LED indicates there is a signal present at the INPUT
XLR.
4. LIMIT LED
The LIMIT LED indicates maximum output of the system is being
reached. A flashing LIMIT LED is acceptable, the DSP will reduce
peaks to prevent amp clipping. If the LIMIT LED is continuously ON,
reduce the level going in to the INPUT XLR. As with any system,
reduce the volume if distortion is heard.
5. DIGITAL DISPLAY
The bright green LED DIGITAL DISPLAY will display various information about the system and its settings. When you first turn on the unit,
the display will indicate which preset is loaded. To change settings
use the UP/DOWN (SET) and LEFT/RIGHT buttons.
6. SETTING BUTTONS (SET)
Use the UP and DOWN (SET) buttons to load different presets for
external speaker connections. The LEFT and RIGHT buttons will
allow editing of more advanced settings, which are explained in the
SETTINGS MENU section of this manual. There are only a few to
select from.
7. INPUT/THRU XLR CONNECTORS
Connect the INPUT XLR to a signal source such as the output of
a mixer. The THRU XLR can be connected to more TRx3010A’s,
TRx3018A’s or other units.
8. REMOTE LEVEL (MUTE) CONNECTOR
This is a terminal block connector with 5 volt control of volume,
typically used in permanent installations. Short the CTL and GND
pins to MUTE.
9. USB PORT
The USB port is for updating system firmware such as additional
Carvin Audio speaker presets for Carvin Audio speakers connected
to the SATELLITE SPEAKER output.

The PROTECT LED indicates one of the protection circuits has
activated and no sound will be heard from the amp. To reset the
amp, turn the power off for about 10 seconds, then turn it back ON.
If the PROTECT LED stays lit for more than 5 seconds, check your
SPEAKER OUTPUT cable connnections, speaker impedance or a
blocked fan intake.
The SATELLITE SPEAKER output is a Twist-Lock connector for
powering external speakers. Presets for several Carvin Audio speakers
are pre-programmed. If there is no preset for your speaker, manual
settings are available. Speakers can be chained together so long as
the total impedance does not go below 4 ohms. If you go below the
minimum speaker load, the amp may shut off or the red PROTECT
LED may light. To reset the protection circuit, turn off the POWER
switch and connect the recommended load.
12. FAN INTAKE / EXHAUST VENTS
The power module features a variable speed fan, which runs silent
at low speeds. Make sure the fan intake and exhaust vents are free
from blockage at all times.
13. AC IN / AC OUT POWER JACKS & FUSE
Be sure to plug into the proper voltage using AC IN jack. A detachable locking power cord is supplied (for European 230V use a CEE-7
plug cord set). Plug the cord into a grounded 3 prong power source.
No attempt should ever be made to use the amp without the ground
connected.
The AC OUT connector can be used to power one or two units such
as another TRx3010A/TRx3018A, a powered speaker, or any device
with 10A or less rating.
The FUSE is located internally near the AC input. To check or
replace, first remove the power cord and then remove the amp
module from the speaker enclosure and then remove the front panel
to access the fuse. The fuse type is a 250V Slow Blow rated at 15A.
A locking AC cord (Carvin Audio part# 120V16L7, 120V model) is
supplied with the amp. However, a standard AC cord can be used.
To detach the cord from the amp, press the release lever on the
underside of the cord near the amp.

SETTINGS MENU
Use the UP and DOWN buttons to change the setting value shown in grey.
To select which setting is changed, use the LEFT and RIGHT buttons.
TRx3010A/TRx3018A Preset: TRx3903 (and other Carvin Audio TRx and SCx speaker models), Variable Crossover or Sub Only.
This selection will load different groups of settings for the TRx3010A/TRx3018A, which are based on the type of speaker to be
connected to the SATELLITE SPEAKER output. Optimized settings for several Carvin Audio speakers are pre-programmed and are
loaded from memory when those presets are chosen.
Use the “Variable X-Over” preset if you don’t find your speaker on the list or if you prefer to use your own settings.
Use the “SUB ONLY” preset if you are not using the SATELLITE SPEAKER output.
When you change a setting under one preset it will saved to memory for only that preset. Settings for other presets will remain
unchanged.
To choose a different preset, first return to the “TRx3010A Preset” or “TRx3018A Preset” screen by using the LEFT/RIGHT buttons,
then use the UP/DOWN buttons.
SENSITIVITY: 1.0v, 1.2v, 1.4v, 2.0v (Vrms)
Sets the overall level required from your source to the INPUT XLR to reach maximum volume. A lower setting will increase volume,
a higher setting will decrease volume. The factory setting is 1.4v.
X-OVER: (CROSSOVER) 58Hz through 160Hz, OFF, or pre-loaded for Carvin Audio speaker presets.
For the Carvin Audio speaker presets this adjustment screen is bypassed, the optimal settings for these speakers are pre-loaded
from system memory.
When using the “Variable X-Over” or “SUB ONLY” preset, this setting is available to adjust the Crossover frequency. This is the highest frequency delivered by the TRx3010A/TRx3018A subwoofer. In the “Variable X-Over” preset this is also the lowest frequency
delivered to the SATELLITE SPEAKER output.
Smaller speakers usually require a higher setting because they cannot reproduce the lower frequencies, while larger speakers can
be used with a lower frequency setting. A good starting point is to set this to slightly above the lowest freqency available from the
external speaker (-3dB rating).
This a 3rd order, 24dB/oct filter. Use the OFF setting if you are using an external crossover device.
POLARITY: NORMAL or REVERSE
The Polarity setting will set the phase of the TRx3010A/TRx3018A subwoofer to Normal or Reverse. If subwoofers are placed at
multiple locations in a room or if the external speakers are positioned far away from the TRx3010A/TRx3018A, low frequencies can be
affected by phase cancellation. If low freqencies are lacking or sound unusual, try the Reverse setting. The fcatory setting is Normal.
ENHANCE BASS: OFF, ON
The Enhance Bass feature allows allows lower frequencies to be reproduced by the TRX3010A/TRx3018A. This setting lowers
the sub frequency extension by 15Hz without overloading the system. This effect will be reduced at higher volume, however, it adds
to the feeling at moderate levels.
EXT. VOLUME: +6dB to -6dB in 1db steps, -9dB, -12dB, MUTE
The External Volume setting will adjust the level of the SATELLITE SPEAKER output. Typically this is set for “0”. This setting can
be used to adjust the level between the TRx3010A/TRx3018A subwoofer and the external speaker.
