Danger

Exposure to extremely high noise levels may cause a permanent hearing loss. Individuals vary considerably to noise induced hearing loss but nearly everyone will lose some hearing if exposed to sufficiently intense noise for a sufficient time. The U.S. Government's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has specified the following permissible noise level exposures:

DURATION PER DAY (HOURS)

8 6

4 3 2 1

 

 

 

SOUND LEVEL (dB)

90 93

95 97 100 103

 

 

 

According to OSHA, any exposure in the above permissible limits could result in some hearing loss. Ear plugs or protectors in the ear canal or over the ears must be worn when operating this amplification system in order to prevent a permanent hearing loss. If exposure in excess of the limits as put forth above, to insure against potentially harmful exposure to high sound pressure levels, it is recommended that all persons exposed to equipment capable of inducing high sound pressure levels, such as this amplification system, be protected by hearing protectors while this unit is in operation.

Installing the Essentia System in Your Home

I. Prewire

The Essentia System uses CAT5 cable for keypad control and either two or four-conductor16-gaugespeaker wire. All the wire is “homerun” from each zone to the location of the Essentia amplifier and Audio Source equipment.

Complete CAT5 Crimping Instructions

The NuVo audio systems require CAT5, unshielded, twisted pair (UTP), for communication between the keypads/Display Pads and the main amplifier unit. Each end of the wire is terminated with an RJ45 connector.

The Essentia System can accommodate 2,000 total feet of CAT5 cable. For the most reliable operation, it is best that no single run of CAT5 exceeds 250 feet.

The correct wiring scheme for the CAT5 cable is standard EIA/TIA 568A. Properly terminating the CAT5 cable is crucial for the operation of the system. It is very important to use a good quality crimp tool, and test each end to end run with a CAT5 wire tester to insure that your system operates flawlessly, fig.1.

Step-by-StepCrimping Instructions:

1.Strip a 2 to 3 inch portion of the insulation, exposing the 4 twisted pairs.

2.Untwist the wires and fan them out individually. Arrange the wires into the correct color scheme as shown in Fig. 1.

3.Flatten the wires in their correct order, and trim them evenly across the top. Most crimp tools have a wire trimmer built-in.It is best to trim the wires to about ½” in length.

4.While holding the wires flat between your thumb and forefinger, insert the wires into the RJ45 connector, so each is in its own slot. Push the wire into the RJ45, so all 8 conductors touch the end of the connector. The insulation jacket should extend beyond the crimp point of the RJ45.

5.Insert the RJ45 into the crimp tool receptacle and squeeze the tool firmly. Note that a ratchet type tool should tighten down until it no longer clicks.

6.The RJ45 should be firmly crimped to the CAT5 insulation. It is necessary that the color scheme be repeated identically on each end of the wire.

II. Installing the Essentia Amplifier

System setup works best when the amplifier is placed in the same location as the audio source equipment. This is typically in an audio rack, entertainment center or a closet dedicated to housing the home audio/video equipment.

The amplifier should be plugged in and the power button on the front panel should be depressed before proceeding with the rest of the installation. This activates the internal protective circuitry of the Essentia System.

II. Terminating Speaker Wire

The speaker wire for each zone is terminated in a standard Eurostyle connector that plugs into each zone specific amplified output. The common speaker termination scheme is Left - Left +, Right - Right +. Either two or four-conductor16-guagewire is recommended. Larger than14-guagewire will not fit into the euro connector.

To terminate the speaker wire, strip back the outer jacket and expose the inner conductors. Strip approximately 1/4” (4 mm) of the insulation from the inner conductors exposing the copper wire. Place the exposed wire in the euro connector and tighten the screw down terminals, fig. 2.

Be careful not to allow the exposed wire from each conductor to touch the adjacent conductor. This will short the speaker input. Each speaker output is designed for two 8-Ohmspeakers.

Overloading the amplifier could cause it to overheat and do damage to the output.

III. Installing the NV-E6DEZPEZ Port

The EZ Port is a multi-connectionhub designed to accept all the CAT5 wires from the keypads in the system. The location of the EZ Port should be determined by the location of the Essentia amplifier. It is best to place in the wall behind the amplifier that would be easily accessible if necessary.

The EZ Port fits easily in any dual-gangsize construction bracket with an open back. These are often referred to as “mud rings”. Simply plug the terminated CAT5 wires into any of the sixteen available jacks on the back of the EZ Port, Fig. 3. The order in which the individual CAT5 wires are plugged is in not important, although it is strongly recommended that you label the CAT5 with the appropriate zone number for future reference.

Once you have plugged the Cat-5wires into the EZ Port, screw the EZ Port into its construction bracket using the supplied mounting screws.

IV. Connecting the EZ Port to the Essentia amplifier

When the EZ Port is installed in the wall the only part visible should be the faceplate and a single RJ45 jack. The supplied preterminated network cable can then be plugged into the jack on the EZ Port and into the network connection on the back of the Essentia amplifier, Fig. 4. Any CAT5 cable terminated using 568A or 568B network wiring will suffice should you need a longer connection.

V. Attaching Audio Source Equipment to the Essentia Amplifier

Each piece of audio source equipment is connected to the Essentia amplifier with standard stereo RCA cables. Attach the RCA cable to the corresponding audio output on the source equipment and to the desired source input on the back of the Essentia amplifier, Fig. 5.

VI. Connecting the IR Emitters

IR commands for the source equipment are transferred from the Essentia amplifier to the source equipment via mini IR mouse emitters. Six of these are supplied with your Essentia System. The emitter is plugged into the corresponding source IR output on the Essentia and then placed over the IR receiver window on the source component, fig. 6. The IR outputs are individually routed to sources 1-6allowing IR commands from the chosen source to only control that source.

The two SUM outputs will flash any IR command that is sent from any of the zones. This is used to connect the NuVo T2 Tuner, which has a single IR direct input to control both tuners to the Essentia System or an IR blaster designed to flash IR commands to a variety of components. This is done by plugging a single mono 1/8” patch cable into the SUM IR output and into the Direct IR input.
