Front Panel Controls and Indicators

Bridge Mode Indicator: Yellow LED
illuminates when the amplifier is set to “Bridge-Mono” mode.

Ready Indicator: Green LED, one per channel, illuminates when the channel is initialized and ready to produce audio output. Indicator is off when the amplifier is in standby mode via the IQ system.

Signal Indicators: Three green LEDs per channel indicate the amplifier’s input and output signal levels.

Signal: Input signal is above –40 dBu.
–20 dB: amplifier output is 20 dB below clipping.
–10 dB: amplifier output is 10 dB below clipping.

Clip Indicator: Red LED, one per channel, illuminates when the channel’s output signal reaches the onset of audible clipping.

Thermal Indicator: Red LED, one per channel, illuminates when the channel has shut down, or is very near shutting down, due to thermal stress or overload.

Fault Indicator: Red LED, one per channel, flashes when the amplifier output channel has stopped operating.

Data Indicator: Yellow LED indicates IQ Network data activity

Power Indicator: Blue LED indicates amplifier has been turned on and AC power is available.

AC Mains Present Indicator: Green indicator built into power switch indicates AC power is present at the power cord and the amplifier circuit breaker is in the "on" position.

Glowing Blue Screen and Controls: These let the user adjust the amplifier’s attenuation and muting, configure the amp, set up error monitoring (such as temperature and load supervision), and recall DSP presets. The presets allow the user to quickly reconfigure the amp for various applications.

   LCD Control Screen: Integrated LCD with white LED backlight, controls amplifier setup and operation.
