IQ-PIP-LITE
he Crown® IQ-PIP-LITE is a PIP™ (Programmable Input Processor) input module for
PIP2™ compatible amplifiers.* It connects
the amplifier to a 100 Mb Ethernet network allowing it to be remotely controlled and monitored via
System Architect or IQwic software.
T
The IQ-PIP-LITE is a HiQnet or TCP/IQ series
component. This means it connects to a HiQNet
system or IQ Network via 100 Mb Ethernet. This
provides faster IQ communications than the previous current loop, IQ bus, connectivity method.
With HiQnet or TCP/IQ, a large (or small) system
can be interconnected using standard off-the-shelf
100 Mb Ethernet components (Switches, Network
Interface Card, and cables). The IQ-PIP-LITE can
also be connected to the same network used to
pass CobraNet™ audio.1
The audio path in the IQ-PIP-LITE is processed
totally in the analog domain without the inherent
noise induced by analog-to-digital conversions.
While DSP-type functions cannot be supported
with this type of architecture, the standard SmartAmp™ feature set is. These features include input
compressors, multimode output limiters, error
reporting and load monitoring.
The IQ-PIP-LITE requires System Architect Software available from www.harmanpro.com or IQwic
software available from www.iqaudiosystems.com.
Using the IQ-PIP-LITE with the IQ-PIP-USP2
Adapter
The IQ-PIP-USP2 Adapter allows many older
Crown PIP-compatible amplifiers (i.e., MacroTech® 00 Series, Com-Tech 00 Series, and Studio
Reference Series amplifiers) to access the power
and versatility of the Crown IQ-PIP-LITE module.
The IQ-PIP-USP2 Adapter can be installed into the
following Crown amplifier models:
CT-200**, CT-400**, CT-800**, CT-1600**
MA-600, MA-1200, MA-2400
MA-3600VZ, MA-5000VZ***
MA-24x6, MA-36x12
Macro Reference**
Studio Reference I
Studio Reference II
For more details about the IQ-PIP-LITE, contact
the Crown Technical Support Group at
800-342-6939 or 574-294-8200. Also, visit the
Crown Audio website at www.crownaudio.com.
*A PIP2™-compatible amplifier is necessary to
use the IQ-PIP-LITE. To determine if the amplifier
is PIP2 compatible, look for the
logo on
the back of the amplifier. The IQ-PIP-LITE is NOT
compatible with older Crown PIP amplifiers unless
a USP2 adapter is first installed in the amplifier.
1 Note that the IQ-PIP-LITE cannot receive or
transmit CobraNet audio. Plese use the IQ-PIPUSP3/CN if this function is desired.

**Important: Some of the first generation ComTech Series and Macro-Reference amplifiers have
soldered 16-pin ribbon and 5-pin signal cable connections, rather than the modular type. If you
find that your original Com-Tech Series or MacroReference amplifier has the soldered type cable
connections, contact the Crown Technical Support
Group for installation instructions.
***Important: Some newer MA-5000VZ amplifiers
are already PIP2-compatible and can accept the
IQ-PIP-LITE directly. Older MA-5000VZ amplifiers
are not PIP2-compatible. Those amplifiers have
soldered 16-pin ribbon and 5-pin signal connections, rather than the modular type. If you find that
your MA-5000VZ amplifier has the soldered type
cable connections, contact the Crown Technical
Support Group for installation instructions.
Important: The IQ-PIP-USP2 Adapter is designed
for use with the IQ-PIP-USP2 module and IQ-PIPLITE ONLY, and will NOT work with the IQ-PIPUSP2/CN or any other PIP module.

Three Year, No-Fault, Fully Transferable
Warranty completely protects your investment and guarantees its specifications
Ethernet link when lit and the presence of Ethernet
traffic when flashing. A green 100 MB indicator
(integrated in the network connector) indicates a
valid 100 Megabit connection.

memory for backup of run-time settings, presets,
and program storage. Capable of 10,000 write
cycles.
Power Requirements: No external power is
required. 160 mA at +24 VDC and 50 mA at –24
VDC. When installed into a Crown PIP2 compatible
amplifier, the unit receives ± 24 VDC from the
amplifier.
Total Power Dissipation: 4.6 watts.
Audio
Please note: The audio specifications are referenced to 0.775 V (0 dBu). Measurements were
made at the output of the IQ-PIP-LITE module
itself.
Input Impedance: Normally 20 kilohms balanced
and 10 kilohms unbalanced.
Maximum Input Level: +20 dBu.
Dynamic Range: >110 dB (A-weighted, 20 Hz to
20 kHz).
Frequency Response: ±0.5 dB from 20 Hz to 20
kHz.
Common Mode Rejection (CMR): 50 dB typical.
