ENCORE DUET RECEIVER

1. Rackmounting the Receiver

There are two options available for rackmounting the Encore DUET receiver: singly or side-by-side with another Encore Series receiver.

a.Single mounting: Remove the receiver SIDE MOUNT CLIP (1) from each side of the receiver (as shown) and slide in the optional ERM-12 RACK EARS (9).

b.Side-by-side double mounting: After removing the SIDE MOUNT CLIPS (1) from both Encore receivers, join the two receivers with the EJC-2 JOINING CLIP (10) and attach the ERM-22 RACK EARS (12) as shown.

(Note: Do not mount the receiver in a rack directly above an amplifier or other source of high heat — this could degrade the performance of the Encore DUET. Always ensure adequate airflow and heat dissipation in any rack configuration.)

2.Powering the Receiver

Plug the 12V AC/DC ADAPTER (15) provided into the DC INPUT JACK (11) on the back of the receiver. Then plug the power supply into an AC outlet.

(Note: Any 12V DC source with 400mA capability can also be used.)

Press the POWER SWITCH (8) once to turn on the receiver. The POWER ON LED (7) will now light and the receiver is operational.

3. Antennas

The Encore DUET receiver is supplied with TELESCOPIC ANTENNAS (16), one each for Channel A and Channel B. These should be extended fully to obtain maximum range. Optimal antenna position is 45 degrees from the receiver (at 90 degrees from each other). For maximum range, it is always best to maintain a line of sight (no obstructions) between the receiver antennas and the transmitter at all times whenever possible.

4. Mute (Squelch) Adjustment

In normal operation, the MUTE CONTROLS (2) for each channel (A & B) should be set fully counterclockwise to the factory preset minimum RF level. However, in areas of high RF activity, the mutes (or squelches, as they are sometimes called) may need to be adjusted to compensate for the adverse conditions in a particular location. If, with the transmitter off, one or more LEDs of the receiver's 5 LED RF LEVEL DISPLAYS (4) for that channel transmitter flicker or stay on, the squelch control for that channel should be turned clockwise until the LEDs extinguish. When the squelch is properly adjusted, the RF LEVEL LED displays will only light when that channel transmitter is turned

on. Turning the squelch control too far clockwise will reduce the range, but yield a quieter mute (squelch) function. When the 5 LED RF LEVEL display extinguishes, the transmitter for that channel is out of range for that given location, and the user should move closer to the receiver to re-establish the radio link.

5. Connecting the Audio Output

The Encore DUET receiver provides both a fixed mic level BALANCED AUDIO OUTPUT XLR (14) for each channel and an adjustable line level A + B UNBALANCED AUDIO OUTPUT 1/4" JACK (13) which provides a mixed (summed) Ch A plus Ch B output signal. The mixed level from the A + B UNBALANCED OUTPUT is controlled by the rear panel VOLUME CONTROLS (6) for each channel.

(Note: As when making any connection, make sure the amplifier or mixing board volume is at the minimum level before plugging in the receiver to avoid possible sound system damage. Also make sure that the phantom power on the input of the mixer is turned OFF before making connection to the receiver.)

a.Instrument Connection (using the WGT instrument transmitter)

Insert an audio cord with a 1/4" mono phone plug in the A + B UNBALANCED OUTPUT JACK (13) on the rear panel of the receiver. Plug the other end of the cord into an amplifier, effects, or mixing board. Adjust the appropriate VOLUME CONTROL (6) for the channel being used on the Encore

DUET receiver clockwise to about 3/4 rotation, until the mixed volume level is comfortable for your application. This setting is roughly equivalent to a direct instrument cord connection. Turning the volume up to maximum will provide

4dB gain over a cord. (Note: Since this a mixed output of Ch A & Ch B, both channels with be processed simultaneously by the amplifier and/or effects connected to, which may not be appropriate for your application.

b.Microphone Connection (using the WLT transmitter with either a headset or lavalier microphone or the WHT handheld microphone transmitter)

For microphone use, either the BALANCED MIC AUDIO OUTPUT XLRs (14) or the

1/4" line level A + B UNBALANCED OUTPUT (13) can be used. The XLR output is set at a non-adjustable microphone level, similar to hardwired mic levels. Plug an XLR connector into either or both of the XLR OUTPUT JACKS on the rear of the unit and plug the other end into your amplifier or mixing board.

(Note: Make sure the phantom power on your mixing board is turned off and the volume is turned down when making connections.)

For your convenience, the XLR output levels are preset at the factory and are not adjustable with the receiver volume controls. To use the 1/4" A + B UNBALANCED OUTPUT JACK (13), follow the instructions for the Instrument

Connection (above), except start with the receiver volume at 1/2 MAX and adjust the volume control for each channel until the mixed Ch A and

Ch B volume level is optimal. If the volume controls are set too high, you may overload your mixer or amp.
