INSTALLING THE ANTENNA
1. Connect the antenna.
Connect the included XM antenna to the XM antenna input on the back of
the 180MAx.
4. Optimize the signal strength.
Have someone hold the antenna as you optimize the signal strength
(described next).
OPERATING THE XM TUNER
You can control the XM tuner by the 180MAx front-panel buttons or by the
included remote control. If the power fails, the tuner will automatically
return to its state before power loss.
A display will appear similar to the one below:
The XM tuner display and controls are shown below.
You will be mounting the antenna near a south-facing wall. The antenna
comes with 20 feet of cable. If that is not sufficient to reach the 180MAx,
purchase a 50-foot cable extension kit. Up to two extensions can be used
together for up to 120 total feet of cable. Alternatively, you can use custom
lengths of 50 ohm RG58U, or obtain extension kits from third-party
sources. For outdoor antenna installation options, go to
www.xmradio.com
2.Turn on the 180MAx.
Verify the power indicator is illuminated and the display backlight is on.
If the message “CHECK ANTENNA” appears, check that the antenna
connector is tightly connected and that the antenna cable is not shorted.
3. Align the antenna.
For indoor installation on a flat surface:
Set the antenna on its base on a flat horizontal surface, ideally near a
south-facing wall, and near a window if possible.
Turn the base of the antenna so that the XM logo is facing to the south if
you are in the eastern half of the U.S. and to the south/southeast if you are
in the western half of the U.S.
For outdoor installation:
See www.xmradio.com for third-party outdoor installation options.
For indoor wall mounting:
You will mount the antenna near a south-facing wall, and near a window if
possible.
1. Insert four screws (not supplied) in the wall so they align with the
holes in the base of the antenna.
2. Tilt the antenna fully back on the base.
3. Place the antenna base on the four screw heads with the antenna pivot
at the top.
4. Pull down the base approximately 1/4 inch until the base is firmly
secured. The XM logo will be upside down when the antenna is properly
installed.

4 Troubleshooting
CONDITION: No sound.
CONDITION: No power.
POSSIBLE REASON:
POSSIBLE REASON:
•
The mixer-amplifier’s Power switch is off.
•
The mixer-amplifier is not plugged into the
power receptacle.
•
The mixer-amplifier’s high-voltage power
supply circuit breaker has tripped. Verify that
the AC mains voltage is correct, then press the
Reset button on the back panel.
•
The amplifier is in “fault” mode. A Fault status
can be triggered when one of the amplifier’s
protection circuits is activated. First disconnect
your speakers from the affected channel(s) one
by one to determine if one of the loads is
shorted. If an amplifier channel has a thermal
fault, there will be no indication on the front
panel, but the amp will recover after cooling. If
operation does not return to normal after
restarting your amp, press the Reset button on
the back panel, or return mixer-amp to Crown or
an authorized Crown Service Center for
servicing.
•
No input signal.
•
Input signal level is very low.
CONDITION: Distorted sound.
POSSIBLE REASON:
•
Input signal level is too high. Turn down your
input volume controls. NOTE: Your mixeramplifier should never be operated at a level
which causes the Clip LED to illuminate
constantly.
•
Master volume level is too high. Turn it down to
about 3/4 of maximum level.
