  2. Remove the TOA amp/powered mixer, it is heavy so you may want to use a cart.

  4. Make sure the unit is off - #8 Power Switch (below)
  5. Plug in the unit.
  6. Connect the speaker cables to the back of the unit - #6 Speaker Plugs (below). Use either port on the speakers. Speakers are usually on the stage. Speaker cables are in the storage lockup.
  7. Make sure that all of the white knobs (TRIM & INPUT LEVEL) and the MASTER are turned down/ fully counter clockwise.
  8. Turn the unit on, power switch on the back of the unit.
  9. If using microphones connect them to inputs 2 or 3.
  10. After connecting a microphone, speak loudly into it & adjust the appropriate TRIM knob (top row of white knobs) clockwise slowly unit the red indicator light flashes (just above the knob), then turn the knob back just a little.
  11. Adjust the appropriate INPUT LEVEL knob (bottom row of knobs) clockwise about half way up.
  12. Adjust the MASTER control knob (lower middle with white tape "Master" written on it, clockwise about half way.
  13. Turn microphone on and check sound level and adjust the TRIM, INPUT LEVEL and MASTER as necessary. For voices bring low EQ down more than high EQ.
