Rack Installation
The MA Series are rack mountable. 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.
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 used for low impedance (4-16Ω) speakers 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. For longer cable
runs please ensure the 100V outputs are used for 100V speakers.
Connect your speaker systems via the speaker terminals (COM = -VE)
Examples: 1) COM + 4Ω
2) COM + 8Ω
3) COM + 70V
4) COM + 100V
Note: Please do not use more than one pair of output terminals

Connections To The Mains
Before connecting the amplifier to the local mains voltage outlet should be checked to ensure the
available supply is 240V~AC 50Hz. This product is CLASS1 and requires a protective mains earth
to be connected at all times. DO NOT remove or disconnect the earth.
Power On/Off Procedure
After connecting your amplifier to the mains, turn all controls counter clockwise to the “min”
position. Turn on audio sources (MP3 players, CD players, Microphones etc) before powering the
amplifier ON. The last product to be switched on is the amplifier.
If you wish to power off the system, turn the amplifier’s master volume control counter clockwise
to the “min” position before switching the amplifier OFF before any audio sources are switched off.
By following this procedure it will prevent acoustic shocks to the speakers or potential damage to
system components.
Machine operation
1. After connecting all audio sources and powering on the mixer amplifier, adjust the level of each
audio input to achieve the desired “mix”. Care should be taken to when adjusting microphone
input volumes and the master volume, adjust both of these in small increment’s to avoid feedback
(howl around). The goal is to achieve a clear balance between music and voice ensuring
announcements can be clearly heard.
2. Microphone input No.1 features selectable voice operated override (VOX), this will mute all
other inputs. After 3 seconds of no signal to the MIC1 input the other inputs will return to their
original state. The VOX level can be adjusted on the rear panel.
3. The Clever Acoustics amplifiers all feature output VU meter’s with CLIP indication. Should the
CLIP indicator illuminate (flashing) the output of the amplifier is too high, turn the master volume
anti-clockwise to reduce the output.
4. The Clever Acoustics amplifiers all feature protection with LED indication. Should the
PROTECT indicator illuminate, turn the master volume control anti-clockwise fully and switch off
the amplifier for 15 seconds as the amplifier may have entered PROTECT mode temporarily due
to a peak signal, care should then be taken to ensure all input levels are set correctly. If the
amplifier persists to enter PROTECT mode the amplifier should be switched off and left to cool
for 5-10 minutes before switching back on. If the PROTECT indicator remains lit this indicates a
problem with the amplifier or amplifier load (ie Short Circuit).
5. Speaker & Amplifier systems can produce high sound pressure levels, please operate all
controls with caution to ensure people are not exposed to excessive or dangerous sound pressure
levels.

Notes:
• Both the 4Ω, 8Ω, 70V and 100V terminals cannot be used at the same time.
• Impedances indicated in the figures represent the total speaker system (load) impedances.
Loads presented to the amplifier must be equal to or greater than listed above. Speaker
impedances must be measured using a true impedance meter, do not standard multimeters.
WARNING!
Be sure to attach the supplied terminal cover attached after connection. Because high voltage is applied to the speaker terminals,
car should be taken never touch these terminals to avoid
electric shock.
All speaker connections should be made using bare wire or suitable
insulated crimp terminals. Please ensure no loose strands are present
as these may short across terminals causing damage to the amplifier

Connection With The Mains
Connect the unit to the mains via the IEC mains
inlet using the 13A UK - IEC cord supplied.
The earth has to be connected.
Switch the unit on. After switching on the speaker system, wait 8 - 10 seconds before you turn the
volume control up in order to avoid speaker damage.
CAUTION! Increase the level of each channel up to the point where the clip LEDs illuminate.
Always check the sound pressure level with a meter in order to keep to the legal threshold.
