Typical Application for the MPA 152
MPA 152 Features
ENERGY STAR® qualified amplifier — The MPA 152 is available as an ENERGY STAR
qualified amplifier, with an auto power-down feature that automatically places the amplifier
into standby after 25 minutes of inactivity, dramatically reducing power consumption.
Extron Patented CDRS™ - Class D Ripple Suppression — CDRS is an Extron
Patented technology that provides a smooth, clean audio waveform and an improvement
in signal fidelity over conventional Class D amplifier designs. CDRS eliminates the high
frequency switching ripple characteristic of Class D amplifiers, a source of RF emissions
which can interfere with sensitive AV equipment such as wireless microphones.
Ripple Steering technology — Produces cleaner, low-emission, audio output signals.
Fixed switching frequency — Switches at a frequency below the AM band, which
reduces the chance of radio interference.
Three audio inputs — Accepts one balanced or unbalanced input pair (captive screw),
one unbalanced pair (RCA), and one unbalanced pair (TRS), providing up to three right and
three left channel inputs. All three right inputs are summed to produce a single right output;
all three left inputs are summed to produce a single left output.
MPA 152 • Introduction
2
Stereo or Dual Mono toggle switch — Allows the user to choose between stereo output
or to combine the left and right outputs and produce dual mono outputs.
Up to 15 watts (rms) per channel stereo output — Delivers up to 15 watts (rms) per
channel, stereo or dual mono, into a 4 ohm speaker system or up to 8 watts (rms) per
channel into an 8 ohm system.
Front panel controls — Input level, bass and treble are easily adjusted from the front
panel.
Quick-plug speaker outputs — Speaker output is on a captive screw connector for quick
installation.
Volume and mute remote control — A rear panel, three-pin captive screw remote input
connector allows remote adjustment of volume and muting.
Always-on clip limiting — Reduces gain automatically to prevent amplifier clipping.
Compact size — The amplifiers are housed in a 1U high, 3 inch deep, quarter rack metal
enclosure, which offers flexible mounting options.
UL 2043 plenum rated — The MPA 152 meets UL 2043 for smoke and heat release
for installation within a plenum airspace above a drop ceiling (power supply excluded).
Above‑the-ceiling placement conceals the amplifier to prevent theft, and is convenient for
installing equipment when space inside the room is limited.

Connect the two-pole, 3.5 mm captive screw connector from the power supply to
the power socket on the rear panel of the MPA 152, as shown above. Ensure the
connections have the correct polarity.
ATTENTION:
• Always use a power supply supplied by or specified by Extron. Use of an
unauthorized power supply voids all regulatory compliance certification and
may cause damage to the supply and the end product.
• Suitable for use in environmental air space in accordance with
Section 300.22.C of the National Electrical Code, and Sections 2-128,
12‑010(3) and 12-100 of the Canadian Electrical Code, Part 1, C22.1.
• Unless otherwise stated, the AC/DC adapters are not suitable for use in air
handling spaces or in wall cavities. The power supply is to be located within
the same vicinity as the Extron AV processing equipment in an ordinary
location, Pollution Degree 2, secured to the equipment rack within the
dedicated closet, podium, or desk.
• The installation must always be in accordance with the applicable provisions of
National Electrical Code ANSI/NFPA 70 and the Canadian Electrical Code. The
power supply shall not be permanently fixed to building structure or similar
structure.
• The length of the exposed wires in the stripping process is critical. The ideal
length is 3/16 inches (5 mm). Any longer and the exposed wires may touch,
causing a short circuit between them. Any shorter and the wires can be easily
pulled out even if tightly fastened by the captive screws.
NOTE: Do not tin the wires. Tinned wire does not hold its shape and can become
loose over time.

Pin 1 is 10 VDC reference voltage.
•
Pin 2 (Vol/Mute) has two functions:
a. It can be used as a variable voltage input between 0 and 10 VDC, with 0 V giving
full attenuation and 10 V giving maximum volume.
b. It can be used for remote control muting. Sound is muted while the mute pin is
shorted to ground.
•
Pin 3 is ground.
NOTE: All nominal levels are at ± 10%.
Controlling multiple amplifiers with one volume controller
Several MPA 152 units can be daisy-chained so that one volume controller can
simultaneously regulate the volume of all the amplifiers.
NOTES:
• As additional amplifiers are added to the daisy chain, the sensitivity of the
volume potentiometer will change. The maximum volume level (fully clockwise)
will not be affected. However the effectiveness of the minimum volume level
(fully counterclockwise) in reducing the volume to inaudible levels decreases as
more amplifiers are added to the daisy chain.
• When more than two MPAs are attached to the chain, sound may begin to
be heard even if the levels have been set to their lowest. The muting of the
output however can be remedied with a contact closure button attached
between the Vol/Mute and Ground pin of the first MPA in the chain.

To regulate multiple amplifiers with a single volume controller, follow these instructions:
1. Attach all three pins of the volume controller to the corresponding pins on the first
MPA 152 unit only (ground to ground; Vol/Mute to Vol/Mute; and 10 V to 10 V).
2. Use jumper wires to connect the Vol/Mute pins of the first amplifier and each successive
amplifier.
3. Use jumper wires to connect the ground pins of the first amplifier and each successive
amplifier.

If the front panel switch (see figure 7 on page 9) is set to stereo, the output will be
stereo; if the front panel switch is set to dual mono, the right and left channels will be
mixed (summed and divided by two) for a dual mono output.
With an 8 ohm load, the amplifier produces up to 8 watts per channel. With a 4 ohm
load, the amplifier produces up to 15 watts per channel.
See the attention and note on page 5 for important information about connecting
wires to captive screw connectors.
ATTENTION: Do not short the + and – outputs to each other, as this will damage
the amplifier.

output for stereo applications (default) or dual mono output for mono applications.
c Potentiometers — Three front panel potentiometers are used to optimize input level,
bass, and treble settings.
Setting Input Level
Adjust the MPA 152 input level as follows:
1. Unplug the remote plug from the unit.
2. Turn the Level potentiometer fully counterclockwise to its minimum setting.
3. Set the volume of the audio source to its maximum level. No sound should come out.
4. Slowly increase the MPA 152 level until sound distortion starts to occur. Lower the level
slightly until the distortion disappears. This setting will ensure that, whatever the volume
setting of the audio source, no clipping will occur.
MPA 152 • Setup and Operation

Setting Bass and Treble
Adjust the MPA 152 bass and treble as follows:
1. Use the Bass potentiometer to increase or decrease the bass shelving ±10 dB at 80 Hz
and below.
2. Use the Treble potentiometer to increase or decrease the treble shelving ±10 dB at
10 kHz and above.
NOTE: Turning the Bass or Treble potentiometers counterclockwise will decrease the
output at the specified frequencies. Turning the potentiometers clockwise will increase
the output. When the potentiometer is in the center, flat response is achieved.

Figure 8. Typical Application for the MPA 152, Using Remote Control
a Using the IR remote for the projector — When using a projector with variable audio
outputs, connect the projector audio output to the MPA 152 audio input. Use the IR
remote for the projector to control the volume of the projector, which effectively controls
the volume of the MPA 152.
b Extron volume controllers — Extron provides a range of volume and mute controllers
that offer a remote control option for use with a projector that lacks variable audio
outputs. These options control the MPA 152 volume directly. See page 7 for more
information about “Wiring for remote control.”
c Using a MediaLink® Controller — For a projector with variable audio output, connect
the projector audio output to the MPA 152 audio input. Use a MediaLink controller to
adjust the volume of the projector via RS-232. MediaLink controllers can also use the IR
remote to adjust the volume of the projector and thus the input to the amplifier.

Rack Mounting
UL Guidelines for Rack Mounting
The following Underwriters Laboratories (UL) guidelines are relevant to the safe installation of
this product in a rack:
1. Elevated operating ambient temperature — If the unit is installed in a closed or
multi-unit rack assembly, the operating ambient temperature of the rack environment
may be greater than room ambient temperature. Therefore, install the equipment in
an environment compatible with the maximum ambient temperature (TMA: +122 °F,
+50 °C) specified by Extron.
2. Reduced air flow — Install the equipment in the rack so that the equipment gets
adequate air flow for safe operation.
3. Mechanical loading — Mount the equipment in the rack so that uneven mechanical
loading does not create a hazardous condition.
4. Circuit overloading — Connect the equipment to the supply circuit and consider the
effect that circuit overloading might have on overcurrent protection and supply wiring.
Appropriate consideration of the equipment nameplate ratings should be used when
addressing this concern.
5. Reliable earthing (grounding) — Maintain reliable grounding of rack‑mounted
equipment. Pay particular attention to supply connections other than direct connections
to the branch circuit (such as the use of power strips).
