Orientation INTRODUCTION ™ The AccessEZ series of demonstration system modules provides a plug-in solution for car audio, hi-fi, and video switching systems in retail display environments. This second generation of the highly capable, indus- ™ try-acclaimed Access System modules offers many new features and benefits: • AccessEZ offers a compact module to fit each kind of product, compared with a patchwork of printed circuit boards. • Modules are protected by attractive and rugged steel covers. •

™ What is the Access System? ™ The Access System consists of a variety of intelligent switching modules. These modules communicate with each other via the “system bus,” allowing you to construct the exact demonstration system configuration you desire from the sources, processors/equalizers, amplifiers, speakers, and subwoofers in your display. The switching modules are located near the actual products on display creating a “distributed switching net- work.” The products are connected to the m

Bypass A way to hear a system without a particular in-line component (EQ, Crossover, Amplifier, etc.). For example, when you wish to hear a system without the processor, the system can route the signal past the processor group and directly to the amplifiers. In this expample, Position #4 on the last module in the Processor Product Group is used as the bypass location. When this position is selected, or the Product Group is deselected, the audio signal continues through the bypassed group to t

™ HOW THE ACCESS SYSTEM WORKS When a product is selected for demonstration, signals are sent through a network of buses between switching modules to activate that particular product position. Selecting Products in the Access System Products can be selected in a system in different ways that can all be combined into a single system, if desired. You may select products in the following ways: • By pressing a Product Select Button (PSB) connected to a switching module. This allows the user to build

For the bypass option, remem- ber to leave the fourth position open on the last 942 module in each Amp Product Group. That position is reserved for the bypass connection, so no amp can be connected there (see pp. 6, 40). There are many other hookup and demonstration possibilities for amplifiers, many of which are shown in this manual. Please call us at 800-322-8346 if you have questions about the type

BEGIN INSTALLATION 1. Preparation Follow these steps carefully: A. Review the design of the demonstration area. • Make sure the display fixture is correct for your installation. • Look at the supplied system wiring diagram, or choose one from this manual to serve as an example. Examples are in Appendix A: Sample Systems. • Gather the owner’s manuals of other products that are part of your system for reference during the installation. B. Gather the tools and materials you will need. You will n

C. Set the Address Switches. Some Group settings are made at the factory, and cannot be changed later. Figure 16 shows the first switch module (Model 910D) in the first Product Group (head units). It has a default address of Group #0 (set at the factory) and the Module ID is set to #00 (this lets the system know this Figure 16.

“B” should be set to “OFF” unless you wish to BYPASS the product group associated with the module. The bypass module is always the last module in the product group to be bypassed (only the bypass module should have the “B” switch turned ON). A product group will be bypassed when all products in that group are unselected. Bypass is commonly used in systems where there are both low-level and high-level output signals from head units (see Appx A, page 40 for a hookup diagram). “M” has specia

3. Installing the System Hardware A. Designate the Switching Module Locations. Each switching module controls either 4 or 8 components. Follow your system plan drawing to determine the location of the switching modules in the display fixture. If you are using factory provided bus cables, you may wish to connect all the modules that share the system bus with system bus cable, power up the system on a bench or table, and check the switching modules and control panel logic before actually install

Pre-assembled bus cables have connectors every two feet (RCA patch cords are available in lengths from three to twenty feet). If you plan to make your bus cables on the job site, you’ll need a special assembly tool available from the factory. If you are making your own bus cables, be very careful to follow the
