ENCODER CONTROL

Pushing the rear encoder it is possible to select the following three functions:

- input gain reduction
- speaker delay setting
- selection of a speaker preset

 

INPUT GAIN REDUCTION

Pushing once the rear encoder the gain reduction LED will light up. Now rotating the encoder counter clockwise it will be possible to reduce the input gain. The gain reduction will be in steps of 0,1 dB for the first 10 dB and than in 1 dB steps. The maximum reduction is 99 dB.

 

SPEAKER DELAY SETTING

Pushing a second time the rear encoder the delay LED will light up. Now rotating the encoder clockwise it will be possible to delay the signal output of the speaker. The delay is expressed in meters. The delay will be in steps of 0,1 m for the first 10 m and than in 1 m steps. The maximum delay will be 20 meter.

SELECTION OF A SPEAKER PRESET

Pushing a third time the rear encoder the preset LED will light up. Now rotating the encoder clockwise it will be possible to select a preset. There are eight presets in three groups:

- CLOSE (C). When the listening distance is less than 4 meter
- LINEAR (L). When the listening distance is from 4 to 11 meter
- FAR (F). When the listening distance is more than 11 meter.

 

L1. LINEAR

Is the totally linear preset. The speaker curve response is perfectly linear. It is ideal when listening outdoor or in low reverberation rooms, at medium distance and at a medium or high sound pressure level.

 

L2. LINEAR HIGH PASS

This preset is the same as L1 with a 24 dB/oct. high pass filter at 100 Hz. To be used when the speaker is a part of a bigger system, when is a satellite of a subwoofer system or when the application is speech reproduction.

 

L3. LINEAR LOW LEVEL - PLAYBACK

This preset is linear with a gentle +3 dB boost at low frequency. To be used when playing at low level or for playback music.

 

L4. LINEAR INDOOR

This preset is linear with a gentle –3 dB shelf at low frequency. It is ideal for a better sound balance in reverberant rooms and for indoor speech reproduction.

 

C1. CLOSE

Close listening preset. To be used when the average listener is closer than 3 meter. The preset shows a gentle –3 dB shelf in high frequencies. The sound balance is natural and never aggressive.

 

C2. CLOSE HIGH PASS

This preset is the same as C1 with a 24 dB/oct. high pass filter at 100 Hz.

 

F1. FAR

Far listening preset. To be used when the average listener distance is more than 10 meter. The preset shows a +3 dB shelf in high frequencies to compensate the air absorption. The clarity and intelligibility in distance are improved.

 

F2. FAR HIGH PASS

This preset is the same as F1 with a 24 dB/oct. high pass filter at 100 Hz.
