  2. The PIP XOV (x-over) module for the CT and CT10 series amplifiers was obsoletede about the time the CTs series came out. You might try Ebay or Craigs List as I have seen them from time to time on one or the other of these. I also saw one in a pawn shop aboput a year ago unopened. The FX Module is nothing more than a Plate with two "F"emale "X"LR connectors. Depending on what you are looking to put it in you might have to use the PIP-USP3 module. It cost a bit more but does a lot more.
  3. I have heard of a couple of guys doing this with a wireless Ehternet Router and the USB Anywhere. However, there are two things to remember: First, the XTi amplifier setup described previously was using a 100 MB "wired" Ethernet system. Second, the XTi amplifiers are USB (Serial) devices that were never intended for use on an Ethernet system. As Wireless Ethernet has a lot slower data rate than wired Ethernet the performace of your individual system could not be guaranteed. The only way to know for sure, if the wireless setup would work in your particular circumstance, would be to build it and try it.
  4. A while back the Crown microphones were transfered over to AKG. This might have been an OEM product for Focal, as a special build for them, however all records have been transfered to AKG.
  5. There are two ways to do this. First make a backup of your show file just in case something happens. Method One: Make sure the working device that you want to put the settings into has the same firmware as the non working device This can be hard to know if you don't remember it or you can't get a connection to the bad unit long enough to read it. Set the IQ address of the working device to the same address of the non working file. If you cant read it from the front panel you should be able to read it from the show file. When you see the icon for the device in the IQ for Windows Workplace screen it will be the three number in the upper right corner of the device icon. After the above is done connect to the USM810 and open the show file. the software will ask if you want to download the system file into the device. Say "Yes". This will put the file settings in the replacement device and effectively make it the same as the non working one. One thing to remember is that this file will only be the working memory of the device. In the Older IQ for Windows software the presets were not part of the file. Each Preset had to be recalled into active memory and then saved as a seperate file. Once a file is loaded into active memory it can then be saved into any preset. ______________________________________________________________ Method Two: This method should take into account for devices with different firmware. Part one: Set the working device to an IQ address of something different than anything else in the IQ system. If there is only the USM810 than just set the address of the working unit to a different addres than the USM 810 in the file. Connect to the working device that you want to make have the setting in the file. Load the show file. You will not see the new device only the original device with a Red square in the upper left corner of the device icon. In the IQ for Windows Tool Bar select to "Dataframe" and from the dropdown select|"Inventory" In the "Dataframe Inventory" window you will see the new device listed with no check mark in it's box. Click on the empty box to add a check mark. Select "Close" at the bottom of the window and the device should now be added to the Workplace window. Left Click on the original file device with the Red square in the upper left corner. This will highlight the device in a red outline. Right Click on the original file device and select "Copy Settings" Left Click on the new device (It should have a green square in the upper left corner) to select it. This will highlight the device in a red outline. Right Click on the new device and select "Paste Settings" The settings should not be copied in the new device. You can check this by double clicing on the amplifier and opening it up to look at the settings. Once this is done you can save these Active Memory setting to any preset you desire. Close IQ for Windows Reset the new device IQ address to the same as the one in the file using the front panel buttons. Part Two: Start IQ for Windows (not the file). Close the larger "Workplace" window - leaving the Tool Bar open. (Do not save the file if requested) Leave the software set this way for a good minute or two. Open the file. The device icon in the Workplace screen should now be green. Leave the software set this way for a good minute. Save the file with a different name. I hope this helps.
  6. I would suggest using either a balanced line level signal splitter before the amp(s) with one output going to the amps and one going to the active powered speakers or use a line level isolation transformer on the amplifiers Link Out to feed the active powered speakers. Either way should assure that the two systems are properly isolated and balanced.
  7. There is one other thing that might have been going on. There could have been some sort an electronic mismatch when connecting to the other system. If you have to do this again I would suggest using either a balanced line level signal splitter before the amp(s) with one output going to the amps and one going to the house feed or use a line level isolation transformer on the amplifiers Link Out to feed the house system. Either way should assure that the two systems are properly isolated and balanced.
  8. For mounting non-rackmounted equipment in a rack I have used the UTR1 from Middle Atlantic Products. http://www.middleatlantic.com/rackac/storage/shelves3.htm#3 This is a 1/2 rack space shelf that is 10 inches deep with a lot of holes on the shelf that will allow you to hold non-rackmountable equipment down with wireties. The rest of the holes can be used for cable management - to wiretie your cabling going to those products securely. I also used a couple dabs of silicon adhesive under the product for extra security. I used to use this exact setup for training racks that traveled all over the world and never had a problem. BTW: Using the AnywhereUSB and Ethernet, as Bill suggested, will allow for much more flexability and distance from your system. I did the initial testing of this set up, with the XTi amps, and have been recommending this way for many years.
  9. There are basically three power ratings that can be given to a speaker without going into a long technical description of each they are Continuous Power, Program Power and Peak Power. It is the generally excepted practice in the audio industry to have an amplifier that is at least twice (2x) the Continuous power rating of the speaker load at the given loudspeakers impedance (Program Power in most cases will be twice the Continuous Power). This will provide 3db of headroom in the amplifier for peaks in the signal source. If an amplifier is being pushed to full output and then you get peaks in the signal an amplifier can go into clipping. When clipping occurs the average, or RMS, value of the signal going to the speaker increases. This increases the average power, being sent to the speaker, and can cause the voice coil of the speaker to over heat and burn out. A speaker is better adapted to handle short durations of higher power (thus their Peak Power rating) then it is to handle continuous power at longer steady state durations. If you have an amplifier that matches, or is close to, the speaker manufactures Continuous Power rating than you will have little to no headroom in the system for peaks. It's better to have an amplifier that is larger rather than smaller-but then again not too big. I like to use the. 8/1.25 rules (guidelines) for selecting an amplifier. This says that you should look for an amplifier that has a power rating that falls into the range of .8 to 1.25 times the Program Power rating of the speaker for the given impedance. For example given a speaker that is rated for 700 watts Continuous at 4 ohms you would be looking for an amplifier that can do between 1120 watts and 17200watts into 4 ohms. 700 x 2 = 1400 watts (Program Power for 3db of headroom). 1400 watts x .8 = 1120 watts 1400 watts x 1.25= 1750 watts The twice power rule is an easy way to calculate amplifier need since 3db is 2 times the Continuous Power rating of the speakers or pretty close to the Program power rating and the. 8/1.25 rules give you an amplifier output range to look for. The XTi4000 and the new XTi4002 would fall into this power range.
  10. For CTS LOW responces from the IQ for Windows software see previous posting on this form at http://www.crownaudio.com/forums/index.php...&hl=CTS+Low If it turns out to be the processor there was a processor brownout upgrade kit that was available for a while ( I not sure if it still is) that would replace the battery and processor.
  11. I have personnely used and tested the AnywhereUSB unit with XTI amplifiers and it works very well. I did several post on this a couple of years ago in this forum that might be helpful.
  12. The set screww on the MA series amplifiers uses a 1/16th inch hex. As the name "Crown" was already licenced in some countries "Amcron" (American Crown) had to be used for selling products.
  13. It a fairly simple process. In the Venue View panel: Saving a Device's settings: *Right click on the amp to be copied *In the pop up window select "Save Device File" *In the "Save AS" window Name the file and Save it someplace you can find it. Installing a Device File into another amp: *Right click on the amp to be updated to the other Device's settings *In the pop up window select "Open Device File" *In the "Open" window navigate to where the file is stored and select the file
  14. If you will send me a PM through the forum with your email address I will get it out to you. It should be noted if the XTi amp has firmware version or greater the CLoader program is not needed as System Architect can be used to update the amp. Each release of System Architect has the then most current version of firmware. The .hex firmware and CLoader program can be used if there is a problem with using System Architect however System Architect is faster and easier to use if there isn’t an issue.
  15. To connect to an I-Tech you need to either have a Crossover cable or two standard cables and a network switch. Also as this devive was factory wiped it means it probibly doesn't have an IP address. You might want to try using Fixed IP address as this takes all the variable of trying to do Auto IP addressing. First set the computer to a fixed IP address. Then in the System Architect menu bar select "Tools|Advanced Network Configuration" and give the amplifiers a fixed IP address. In a few seconds the amp should show up in the Venue View.
