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 Grand Concerto System in Your Home

I. Prewire

The Grand Concerto 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 Grand Concerto 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 Grand Concerto 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.

7.Test each termination with a CAT5 Tester before completing the installation.

II. Terminating the Speaker Wire (fig. 2)

Fig. 2

All the NuVo systems operate across a “homerun”-wiringscheme usingCat-5for the zone keypad control communication, and a separate run of speaker wire for each zone from the speaker outputs to the zone speakers. We suggest16-gage2- or4-conductorspeaker wires.

The speaker wire termination is done using a modular “Euro” connector. Each conductor is screwed down to the connector block and plugged into the appropriate speaker output on the back of the amplifier. The proper termination is Left channel: and+; Right channel:and+.

III. Installing the Grand Concerto 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 Grand Concerto System.

Fig. 3

IV. Installing the NV-I8GEZPEZ Port (fig.3)

The EZ Port is a multi-connectionhub designed to accept all theCat-5wires from the keypads in the system. The location of the EZ Port should be determined by the location of the Grand Concerto amplifier. It is best to place in a wall behind the amplifier that would be easily accessible if necessary.

The EZ Port fits easily in any dual-gang-size,low-voltagering with an open back. These are often referred to as “mud rings.” Simply plug the terminatedCat-5wires into any of the 20 available jacks on the back of the EZ Port. The order in which the individualCat-5wires are plugged in is not important, although it is strongly recommended that you label theCat-5with 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.
