  1. remote control of Mic and/or line inputs

    Thanks, David. The nice thing for me now is that I get to hand it over to someone else who gets to deal with the carpenters and electricians and the paperwork - Especially the paperwork.
  2. remote control of Mic and/or line inputs

    Well the decision has been made to build a weatherproof custom enclosure for the amp and CD player etc. to keep out most of the humidity. That avoids us (we hope) having to deal with long runs of cable and remote control. However, it brings up cooling issues. I can't upload an attachment so I've posted a crude diagram of a cross section of the proposed installation of the weatherproof box. Crown amp in box or copy and paste . http://www.byteback.ca/YG/Crown%20in%20box.bmp Can anyone see any problems with it? The 1160MA literature says cooling is by convection so I'm assuming that, rack mounted, as long as there is lots of space (ie 4" +) above and below the amplifier, and passive air movement within the cabinet, we should be OK. Comments?
  3. Crown 1160 MA remote input controls

    Sorry about that! I couldn't, for the life of me, find my original post so I concluded that something interrupted me before, and I hadn't actually posted it. So, thank your patience here, and your answer to the original!
  4. Hello - We are considering buying the Crown 1116MA mixer amplifier but I have no experience with Crown's line . We have a situation where the current mixer amplifier is housed in a small office adjacent to a large swimming pool . The door to this Pool Office is often left open to the pool and the humidity level is extremely high. You can imagine the effect on the amplifier and other electronics in that very humid office. The instructors in the pool for Swim-fit and other classes would like to be able to have control of the volume for a wireless microphone that they use, and also for a CD player that they use for music. My idea is to locate the amplifier mixer in a separate room, about 30ft. away. Then I would like to have volume control available in the pool office that could independently adjust the volume of the CD player and of the microphone . Those are the two critical inputs though in the future more maybe request it. The staff are willing to leave the CD player, which can be replaced frequently and cheaply, in the humid pool office so that they can load CD discs whenever they want to . However the amplifier really needs to be away from all that humidity. I know some amplifier mixers allow for remote control of, in one instance, one microphone channel , and in another, the master output . I've been told that the Crown 1160MA can independently control all of the inputs from a remote location . I have not been able sort that out from the web site and I was wondering if someone could give me some guidance on this . If the problem is clear to you perhaps you can think of another solution . Thank you
