Safe Handling of CMOS Integrated Circuit Devices
Many of the integrated circuit devices used in communications equipment are of the Complementary
Metal Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) type. Because of their high open circuit impedance, CMOS
integrated circuits are vulnerable to damage from static charges. Care must be taken handling, shipping,
and servicing them and the assemblies in which they are used.
Even though protection devices are provided in CMOS integrated circuit inputs, the protection is effective
only against overvoltage in the hundreds of volts range such as is encountered in an operating system. In
a system, circuit elements distribute static charges and load the CMOS circuits, decreasing the chance of
damage. However, CMOS circuits can be damaged by improper handling of the modules, even in a
system.
To avoid damage to circuits, observe the following handling, shipping, and servicing precautions:
1. Prior to and while servicing a circuit module, particularly after moving within the service area,
momentarily touch both hands to a bare metal, earth-grounded surface. This will discharge any static
charge that may have accumulated on the person doing the servicing.
NOTE: Wearing a conductive wrist strap will minimize static build-up during servicing.
2. Whenever possible, avoid touching any electrically conductive parts of the circuit module with your
hands.
3. Power down the unit before installing or removing the circuit module.
4. When servicing a circuit module, avoid carpeted areas, dry environments, and certain types of
clothing (silk, nylon, etc.) because they contribute to static build-up. Similarly, disconnect the test
probe prior to removing the ground lead.
5. All electrically powered test equipment should be grounded. Apply the ground lead from the test
equipment to the circuit module before connecting the test probe.
6. If a circuit module is removed from the system, it is desirable to lay it on a conductive surface (such
as a sheet of aluminum foil) which is connected to ground through 100 k of resistance.
7. When soldering, be sure the soldering iron is grounded and has a grounded tip.
8. Prior to connecting jumpers, replacing circuit components, or touching CMOS pins (if this becomes
necessary in the replacement of an integrated circuit device), be sure to discharge any static build-up
as described in procedure 1. Since voltage differences can exist across the human body, it is
recommended that only one hand be used if it is necessary to touch pins on the CMOS device and
associated board wiring.
9. When replacing a CMOS integrated circuit device, leave the device in its conductive rail container or
conductive foam until it is to be inserted into the printed circuit module.
10. All low impedance test equipment (such as pulse generators, etc.) should be connected to CMOS
device inputs after power is applied to the CMOS circuitry. Similarly, such low impedance
equipment should be disconnected before power is turned off.
11. Replacement modules shipped separately from the factory will be packaged in a conductive material.
Any modules being transported from one area to another should be wrapped in a similar material
(aluminum foil may be used). Never use non-conductive material for packaging these modules.

System Layout Considerations
The installer must consider the system layout to assure proper audio delivery to the Addressable
Amplified Speakers.
•
For hardwired installations, each speaker requires a balanced 600-ohm, 0 dBm input audio signal. A
contact closure may be required depending on the selected operating mode. Cabling (telephone cable,
cat-5/6, etc.) must be distributed appropriately to attain the necessary audio level and balance. Audio
distribution apparatus may be necessary to accomplish this task.
•
For RF installations, each speaker must be located within line of site of the RF transmitting device
(repeater, base, or mobile radio).
Operating Modes
The Addressable Amplified Speakers can operate in three different modes, Generic, DTMF Selective,
and Two-Tone Selective. The mode of operation determines if the speakers will broadcast all audio
transmissions or only “selective” audio transmissions. Each operating mode is described in the following
sections.
Generic Operation
Generic Mode requires an external control input to activate (wake up) the Addressable Amplified
Speaker. Once active, the unit will broadcast any audio received from the transmitting device. Removal
of the activation input returns the speaker to the inactive (sleep) mode.
•
For hardwired installations, the control input activation must be in the form of a voltage–free (dry)
contact closure.
•
For RF installations, the control input activation is provided from the “RF carrier detect” control
circuit of the integral radio receiver. This simply means that audio (carrier) must be received on the
appropriately programmed radio frequency and PL code.
All Addressable Amplified Speakers are factory programmed for Generic Operation.
DTMF Selective Operation
Selective operation allows “addressable” access to each Addressable Amplified Speaker using DTMF
signaling (DTMF Selective) or Two-Tone signaling (Two-Tone Selective). Each speaker can be
programmed with up to eight different addresses. Upon receiving a valid DTMF or Two-Tone code, the
speaker becomes active and will broadcast any audio received from the transmitting device. The speaker
returns to the inactive (sleep) mode when the transmission is complete and a pre-programmed hold time
expires.

By assigning a combination of addresses to each Addressable Amplified Speaker, the overall system can
be segregated into multiple broadcast zones. In a typical multi-zone system, three access codes might be
assigned to each module.
•
Address 1 – is always a unique address assigned to only that addressable amplified speaker. By using
this access code, an individual addressable amplified speaker is activated.
•
Address 2 – could be an address assigned to a group of addressable amplified speakers located in the
same speaker broadcast area. When received, the group of Addressable Amplified Speakers is
activated simultaneously. This access method is used when an audio broadcast is required to a
particular broadcast zone.
•
Address 3 – could be an address assigned to all Addressable Amplified Speakers in the system. By
using this access code, all speakers are activated simultaneously when a system-wide audio broadcast
is required.
DTMF Selective with Manual Switch
This mode is typically used in an RF application or in a hardwired application requiring additional
security to prevent unauthorized access. The DTMF Selective with Manual Switch mode requires an
external control input to activate (wake up) the Addressable Amplified Speaker. Once active, the unit
must receive a valid DTMF address. Upon receiving a valid address, the speaker will broadcast any audio
received from the transmitting device. Removal of the activation input returns the speaker to the inactive
(sleep) mode.
•
For RF installations (Models 13363 & 13373), the control input activation is provided from the RF
carrier detect control circuit of the integral radio receiver. This simply means that audio (carrier)
must be received on the appropriately programmed radio frequency and PL code and the appropriate
DTMF address must be received.
•
For hardwired installations (Model 13353), the control input activation must be in the form of a
voltage–free (dry) contact closure (additional wire pair).
GAI-Tronics CARD Suite Programming Software is used to assign the operating mode and DTMF
addresses. Valid DTMF addresses can contain two to eight digits followed by the “#” symbol. DTMF
digits 0–9, *, and A, B, C, and D are permitted.
DTMF Selective with Voice Switch
This mode is used for hardwired installation where a contact closure is not available from the transmitting
device. In this case, the Addressable Amplified Speaker constantly monitors the audio line for a valid
DTMF address. Upon receiving a valid address, the speaker will broadcast any subsequent audio
received from the transmitting device. The speaker returns to the inactive (sleep) mode after audio from
the transmitting device stops for a programmable amount of time.
Two-Tone Selective
GAI-Tronics CARD Suite Programming Software can also be used to assign Two-Tone access codes
instead of DTMF access codes. Valid access codes contain two frequencies in the 400–2700 Hz range.
Each Addressable Amplified Speaker can be programmed with up to eight different codes. By assigning
a combination of access codes to each device, the overall system can be segregated into different speaker
broadcast zones as described above for DTMF signaling. Two-Tone signaling is only applicable for RF
installations. Contact the Service Center at 1-800-492-1212 for instructions in using CARD Suite to
program Two-Tone Selective operation.

Feed-Thru Operation
The Addressable Amplified Speaker can be programmed to perform as a Lead unit or as a Slave unit in a
speaker grouping. This function is referred to as “Feed-Thru” operation and can be activated via the
CARD Suite Programming Software. This operation is primarily used in an RF installation and allows
the Lead Addressable Amplified Speaker to receive the source audio signal via the RF airwaves and
provide hardwired, 600-ohm redistribution of the audio (and page control, if required) to one or more
speakers within a grouping. This configuration could greatly reduce system costs by limiting the number
of RF speakers required.
When in Individual operation, the Lead speaker simply acts as a receiving point for the Slave speaker(s),
allowing the Slave speaker(s) to be addressed individually without activation of the Lead or other Slaves.
When in Follow-me operation, the Slave speaker(s) will activate upon activation of the Lead speaker.
This access includes adjusting volume control settings.
Refer to page 26 for detailed information.
Volume Adjustments
Each speaker assembly’s output volume can be adjusted via four different methods:
•
•
•
•
Remotely, using DTMF signaling
Programmed prior to installation using CARD Suite
Locally using the optional Model 12506-001 L-pad
Automatically, utilizing the ALA (Automatic Level Adjustment) feature. This feature would be used
if steady high noise levels sometimes occur but are not present continuously.
Remote Volume Adjustment
With Automatic Level Adjustment Disabled
To adjust the speaker output volume with the Addressable Amplified Speaker programmed for DTMF
selective operation, begin a broadcast using the speaker’s local address (Address 1) followed by a “#”
symbol. When the speaker becomes “active”, transmit a DTMF “*” symbol. Upon receiving the “*”, the
speaker will broadcast a test tone for a programmable amount of time. During this tone, transmit a “*” to
increase the volume or transmit a “#” to decrease the volume. Each press of the “*” will increase the
volume one level and each press of the “#” will decrease the volume one level. The speaker will
broadcast a test tone at the new volume level each time it is changed. Volume can be increased or
decreased between minimum and maximum in 11 steps. A low frequency warning will be broadcast
when the volume has reached either its upper or lower volume limit.
If the speaker under test is programmed for Generic Operation, it will have provisions for programming a
DTMF volume control address via the CARD Suite Programming Software. When properly
programmed, the speaker can be accessed for volume control by simply transmitting its volume control
address and changing the volume as described in the previous paragraph.
CARD Suite includes a test tone duration setting that is programmable between .5 and 6.0 seconds in .5
second increments. This test tone will automatically extinguish at the end of the pre-programmed
duration time or can be manually extinguished by sending a DTMF digit other than “*” or “#.” The
speaker stores its volume setting when the test tone ends.

With Automatic Level Adjustment Enabled
The Automatic Level Adjustment (ALA) allows the speaker to automatically adjust its output to broadcast
at a pre-programmed level above the average ambient noise. Usually an offset of 10 dB is appropriate.
The speaker calculates the average ambient noise level every 5 seconds while it is not broadcasting. The
output level is then adjusted to compensate for the background noise. The first update to the calculated
ambient level will be at most 10 seconds after the standby time expires at the end of a broadcast.
Four settings are available for the ALA feature; Disabled, 5 dB Offset, 10 dB Offset, and 15 dB Offset.
To activate the ALA feature, select one of the three offset levels. The Offset Level is the level of audio
(in dB SPL) above the average ambient noise level, at which the speaker will broadcast.
With ALA enabled, the speaker will adjust its output, based on the steady background noise level in the
vicinity of the speaker, to some level between its maximum output (8 watts) and a programmed minimum
output level. To set this minimum output level, use CARD Suite or adjust the level remotely as described
in the previous section (ALA Disabled). As the background noise level decreases, the speaker output will
also decrease, but the speaker output will not drop below this minimum programmed setting, even when
the background noise drops to a very low level. This setting in CARD Suite is labeled as “Min. Volume
Level.”
Local Volume Adjustment
Local Volume Adjustment is achievable through the use of an L-pad volume control connected to the
speaker assembly (Model 12506-001). No test tone is generated during this adjustment as the user must
generate audio for this test while adjusting the L-pad.
This is a passive adjustment. The maximum output level is defined by the CARD Suite program. Since
the Local Volume Adjustment can only adjust the output level lower than the maximum programmed
level, it is recommended that the Addressable Amplified Speaker is programmed for maximum volume
level (8 watts).
Do not connect an L-pad if the Automatic Level Adjustment is enabled as the automatic adjustment
may be ineffective.
Acoustic Feedback
An audio broadcast command originating too close to an installed speaker (such as from telephones or
portable radios) may create acoustic feedback, depending on the volume level setting of the speaker. To
prevent feedback from occurring, originating distance from the speaker and orientation to the speaker (do
not position in front of the speaker) should be considered.
If the originating position with respect to the speaker’s location requires close proximity, the speaker can
be muted via a “shutdown” closure input. The shutdown closure input could be from a handset
hookswitch, relay, or other similar device.

Output Contact
The Addressable Amplified Speaker is capable of providing a low current output contact designed for
activating a GAI-Tronics Model 530-001 Strobe or other peripheral devices. The Output Contact
Function and its associated Hold Time are programmable via the CARD Suite Software Application and
can be enabled on all or selected DTMF addresses when in DTMF Selective mode. It is also available for
use in Generic mode. If enabled, the contact will activate when the speaker assembly begins to broadcast
audio. The contact will be deactivated either at the end of the audio broadcast (within a few seconds) or
after a selectable Hold Time (if applicable). Hold time can be programmed from 1 second to 30 minutes.
The output contact can be configured as either Normally Open or Normally Closed.
The output contact’s maximum current capability is 100 mA. To use with loads requiring higher current,
an interposing control relay will be required between the speaker assembly’s output contact and the actual
device.
NOTE: The output contact will remain in the “open” state when unit power is removed.
Battery Monitor
If the installed Addressable Amplified Speaker utilizes either the BB133 Battery Backup Kit or the
XB001/40201-008 Long-life Battery (usually used in solar power configuration), the speaker assembly
can be programmed to generate an alert tone when the battery charge falls below the factory-set limit.
Using CARD Suite, enable the Battery Checking feature under the Low Battery Alert section. The
volume of the Low Battery Alert Tone can be adjusted to one of three settings; 50%, 75%, or 100% of the
speaker volume setting. The alert tone will sound every four minutes (factory default setting) until the
battery is charged to a level above the Low Battery Alarm Limit.
NOTE: To avoid hearing an alert tone during initial power up after installation (assuming Battery
Checking has been selected in CARD Suite), it is recommended that the battery be fully charged prior to
installation. Battery charger No. 40408-009 can be used for the BB133 Kit (2.8 Ah) and charger No.
40408-011 can be used for the 40201-008 Battery (18 Ah). If a backup or long-life battery is not
installed, keep this Battery Checking feature disabled (factory default setting).
Programming and Set Up
The Addressable Amplified Speaker requires software configuration to set the operating parameters. It is
highly recommended to program and bench-test the unit prior to field installation.
A computer with a COM port (RS-232) and Windows95 or newer operating system is required to
program the Addressable Amplified Speaker. Windows NT operating system is not supported. If the PC
contains only USB ports, a USB–to–RS-232 converter is also required. Programming accessories are
sold separately. They are as described below:
The No. XAC4000B Programming Bundle with CARD Suite Programming Software (Version 4.3.2 or
newer) and No. XAC0004A programming cable are used to program the operating parameters of all
Addressable Amplified Speaker models.
The Model 13363 and 13373 RF Addressable Amplified Speakers also require the radio receiver to be
programmed. The No. 19101-024 RF Programming Kit includes the software and cable for programming
the desired frequency and optional PL code into the radio receiver.

Volume Level – Select the speaker output level using the slide bar. The valid range is 4 mW to 8 W in
doubling increments (4 mW, 8 mW, 16 mW, etc.).
Automatic Level Adjust – Enable this feature if steady high noise is sometimes present near the
speaker, but is not present continuously. With the ALA feature disabled, the speaker output volume will
follow the exact level setting on the volume control slide. This feature is enabled by selecting one of the
three available offset levels; 5 dB Offset, 10 dB Offset, or 15 dB Offset. The Offset Level is the level of
audio (measured as dB SPL) above the average ambient noise level, at which the speaker will broadcast.
The maximum audio output power attainable, with or without ALA enabled, is 8 watts.
NOTE: ALA can be used in a Feed-Thru configuration. If the Addressable Amplified Speakers are
programmed for Follow-Me operation, the Lead speaker will be programmed for ALA functionality and
the Slave speakers will not. They will follow the level of the Lead speaker. If the Addressable Amplified
Speakers are programmed for Individual operation, both the Lead and the Slave speakers operate
independently and each can be programmed for ALA functionality.
Volume Adjust Address – Enter the DTMF Address code to be used for making volume changes from
a remote touch-tone device. The address should be a code unique to the unit being programmed. This
address code may include digits 0–9 as well as the extended DTMF digits A, B, C, and D. It can contain
two to eight digits. By using one or more of the DTMF digits A, B, C, or D, broadcast access will be
restricted to equipment capable of generating these DTMF digits, providing additional access security.
Test Tone Duration Adjust – The speaker will generate a tone at the current volume setting when it
enters the test tone mode (volume control). This entry starts the duration of the test tone. When the
volume is adjusted (in test tone mode), the speaker will generate a tone at the newly selected level. The
test tone duration’s valid range is 0.5–6.0 seconds in 0.5-second increments with a default setting of 3.0
seconds.
Output Contact – These settings control the activation of the Addressable Amplified Speaker’s contact
closure output. The settings are in effect only when the paging module is activated. Use the pull-down
menu to make one of the following selections:
•
No Change – The output contact will be unaffected when the corresponding DTMF address is
received.
•
Activate – The output contact will change state when the input control contact is received and the
module becomes active. The output contact returns to the normal state when the input contact opens.
•
Activate + Hold – The output contact will change state when the input control contact is received.
The output contact returns to the normal state after the input contact opens and the Hold Time
duration expires.
Use the slide bar to set the Hold Time. Valid range is 1 second to 30 minutes.
Using the radio button, select the normal state of the relay contact with power applied to the paging
module. When power is removed, the contact will always be in the OPEN state.
•
Normally Open – relay contact is OPEN when the unit is inactive and CLOSED when active.
•
Normally Closed – relay contact is CLOSED when the unit is inactive and OPEN when active.

Test Tone Duration Adjust – The speaker will generate a tone at the current volume setting when it
enters the test tone mode (volume control). This entry starts the duration of the test tone. When the
volume is adjusted (in test tone mode), the speaker will generate a tone at the newly selected level. The
test tone duration’s valid range is 0.5–6.0 seconds in 0.5-second increments with a default setting of 3.0
seconds.
DTMF Address & Description 1–8
Enter the DTMF addresses required to activate the Addressable Amplified Speaker. A description of up
to 12 characters can be entered for each address. Each address can contain two to eight digits. The “#”
symbol is automatically inserted into the address by the programming software and is not a required
programmable entry. Up to eight different addresses can be programmed.
Address 1 is always a unique address assigned only to the Addressable Amplified Speaker being
programmed. It is used for individual speaker access, and speaker volume control using additional
DTMF commands. Refer to Volume Adjustment section.
Addresses 2 through 8 are typically assigned to groups of speakers to create broadcast groups or zones
throughout the system. Addressable Amplified Speakers assigned to the same group or zone address will
activate simultaneously when that address is received.
A typical programming scenario is to use one address for individual access, two to six addresses for zone
access, and one address for system-wide (all-call) access. The all-call address would be programmed into
every paging module.
Each address code may include digits 0–9, *, as well as the extended DTMF digits A, B, C, D. It can
contain up to eight digits. By using one or more of the DTMF digits A, B, C, or D, broadcast access will
be restricted to equipment capable of generating these extended DTMF digits, providing greater access
security.
Output Contact Function
These settings control the activation of the Addressable Amplified Speaker’s contact closure output for
each DTMF address. The settings are in effect only when the specific DTMF address is received. Use
the pull-down menu to make one of the following selections:
•
No Change – The output contact will be unaffected when the corresponding DTMF address is
received.
•
Activate – The output contact will change state when the corresponding DTMF address is received.
The output contact returns to the normal state when the Standby Time duration (3 seconds) expires.
•
Activate + Hold Time – The output contact will change state when the corresponding DTMF address
is received. The output contact returns to the normal state when the Standby Time and the Hold Time
durations expire.
•
De-Activate – If active, the relay will reset to its normal state immediately after receiving the
corresponding DTMF address. This is a function used to override the Standby Time and Hold Time
assigned to other DTMF addresses.
Use the slide bar to set the Hold Time. Valid range is 1 second to 30 minutes.
In the Output Contact section at the bottom of the screen, select the normal state of the relay contact.
This will be the relay state when power is applied to the Addressable Amplified Speaker. When power is
removed, the contact will always be in the OPEN state.
•
Normally Open – Relay contact is OPEN when the unit is inactive and CLOSED when active.
•
Normally Closed - Relay contact is CLOSED when the unit is inactive and OPEN when active.

Automatic Level Adjust – Enable this feature if steady high noise is sometimes present near the
speaker, but is not present continuously. With the ALA feature disabled, the speaker output volume will
follow the exact level setting on the volume control slide. This feature is enabled by selecting one of the
three available offset levels; 5 dB Offset, 10 dB Offset, or 15 dB Offset. The Offset Level is the level of
audio (measured as dB SPL) above the average ambient noise level, at which the speaker will broadcast.
The maximum audio output power attainable, with or without ALA enabled, is 8 watts.

Feed Thru Operation
As previously stated, the Addressable Amplified Speaker can be programmed to allow a single speaker to
perform as a Lead unit or as a Slave unit within a speaker grouping. This is particularly useful and most
commonly used in an RF to hardwire transition. It allows an RF controlled speaker to serve as a Lead
unit with one or more 600-ohm speaker(s) hardwired to it as “Slaves”. Each speaker must be specifically
programmed to perform its function within the group. There are two basic modes of operation; FollowMe or Individual. The desired operation will determine the CARD Suite settings.
Follow-Me Operation
Follow-Me operation instructs all Slave speakers to track the exact functionality of the Lead speaker.
This allows a single DTMF or Two-Tone address received at the RF speaker to activate all speakers
within a grouping. This grouping could be considered a zone, building, floor, or some other specific yet
common area. In this operating mode, all slave speakers must be connected to the Lead speaker or
another Slave speaker via an audio pair and a control pair (two twisted pairs between speakers), as
indicated in Figure 3.

Figure 3.
The Lead speaker can be programmed for either Generic or Selective (DTMF or Two-Tone) mode of
operation. However, the Slave speaker(s) must be programmed for Generic operating mode and their
speaker volume must be programmed for maximum volume as shown in the following screen. In FollowMe mode, adjusting the volume of the Lead speaker will also adjust the volume of the Slave speaker(s).
The control pair is required to activate each Slave speaker.

Lead Speaker/Follow-Thru Operation
If only a single Slave speaker is connected to the Lead speaker in Follow-Me operation, both check boxes
in the Secondary Audio Output section of the Slave should remain unselected (default setting). If
multiple Slave speakers are connected to each other, as indicated in Figure 3, each Slave speaker must
have the Audio Feed Thru box selected and the Page Output Contact Follows Broadcast Audio
box must be checked, as indicated in the following screen.
NOTES:
1. The Page Output Contact Follows Broadcast Audio box is to be checked (enabled) only in
Follow-Me operation and when a downstream slave speaker is connected (Lead or Slave speaker
programming).
2. The Enable Volume Level Tracking and Audio Feed Thru boxes under Secondary Audio
Output are mutually exclusive. This means that only one can be enabled (checked) at a time. To
switch between the two boxes requires the checked box to be un-checked (disabled) first.
3. The Default Reset button in the lower right-hand corner of the Advanced screen, when pressed, will
reset all values on that screen to the factory default settings.

Slave Speaker/Follow-Thru Operation
Selecting the Audio Feed Thru box in a Slave speaker allows the scaled audio of the Lead unit’s
speaker to be passed through to each connected Slave speaker, keeping all speakers within the grouping at
the same audio level. Even though this audio is connected from one speaker to the next, it is perceived
that the audio from the Lead speaker is sent to each Slave speaker directly. This concept is depicted in
Figure 4.

Individual Operation
Individual operation allows each 600-ohm Slave speaker to be accessed via its own dedicated address,
even though it is electrically connected to a Lead RF speaker. This configuration allows the use of the
lower cost Model 13353 600-Ohm Speaker but still allows each speaker to be programmed and addressed
separately from all other interconnected speakers. This approach would typically be used for buildings
with limited RF access or to simply reduce project costs. This operation allows the use of a single audio
pair between the Slave and Lead speaker and between each Slave speaker. No control pair is required
because each speaker will be activated when an appropriate DTMF or Two-Tone code is received. See
Figure 5.
Figure 5.
Individual operation requires that both the Lead speaker and the Slave speaker(s) are programmed with
the Audio Feed Thru box enabled on the Advance screen, as previously shown. Individual operation
allows the volume of each speaker to be adjusted independently. See page 13.
Individual operation allows the source audio received at the Lead speaker to be duplicated or passed
through to the next speaker. This same signal is then passed through from one Slave speaker to the next,
allowing each one to be activated individually without activation of the other connected speakers. They
may also be activated as a group if they are programmed with the same DTMF or Two-Tone address.
This concept is depicted in Figure 6.

Hardware Configuration
Audio Line Termination Jumper
For hardwired installations the Addressable Amplified Speaker’s circuit board contains a jumper to
terminate the audio line to maintain an appropriate balance. Jumper P2 on the speaker amplifier PCBA
configures the unit for 600-ohm or 15k-ohm line termination. Shorting P2 pins 1 and 2 sets the line
termination to 15k ohms (default setting). Shorting pins 2 and 3 (P2) sets the line termination to 600
ohms. The settings options are labeled next to the jumper on the PCBA. This jumper is accessible by
separating the rear section of the speaker from the front section. Refer to Figure 18 for location of P2.
This jumper has no function in an RF operation.
