REAR SIDE

The AM 2160 mixer amplifier counts a total of 6 inputs, 4 of which universal and 2 dedicated to program sources.

quel

UNIVERSAL AUDIO INPUTS

It is equipped with several type of input connectors: XLR connector for the Input 1, RJ 45 connectors for the Inputs 2 and 3, expressly for BM 3001 paging microphones and then removable screw terminal connectors for each of the universal audio inputs.

dsp

AUX INPUTS & OUTPUTS

The AM 2160 mixer amplifier has 2 Aux Inputs on dual RCA connector with independent gain controls and overall Treble and Bass controls.
The PRE OUT audio output on RCA connector permits to source the same signal routed to the internal power amplifier circuit. It can be used also to link additional external power amplifiers.
The MUSIC ON HOLD audio output with RCA connector makes available a mono signal of the program source connected to the AUX INPUT A. The MUSIC ON HOLD output is supposed to be mainly used for the connection to a PABX system in order to activate the ‘music on hold’ function.

dsp

SETTING PARAMETERS

The AM 2160 mixer amplifier has 8 DIP switches to set the Priority Configuration, the VOX function, the BM 3001 smart-PTT circuit activation, and the chime sound.
An auxiliary relay dry contact is triggered when a priority command has been activated so to for instance drive attenuators priority relays.

dsp

AMPLIFIER OUTPUTS

The amplifier output is available either for low impedance loudspeakers (min. 4 Ω) or 100 – 70 V constant voltage speaker lines. The Output connection supported by removable screw terminals are protected by a security cover.

INTERNAL VIEW

The model of each AM 2000 series mixer amplifier includes the information of the built-in power device: for instance AM 2160 makes you available 160W RMS @ 100V, 70V or 4 Ohms.
On the market you can find other Mixer Amplifiers for Commercial Audio applications, but none light and compact as the AM 2160.

quel

THE POWER SUPPLY & AMPLIFIER ASSEMBLY

The Power Supply and Power Amplifier are designed as single high efficiency module, compact and reliable. For instance, the energy efficiency is in this series close to the 80% compared with traditional products where the 45% is sometimes hard to be reached.

When you hold it in your hand, you can feel the technology we developed for this range of commercial audio amplifiers. Already several thousand pieces have been used world-wide so far in many different applications/projects.

quel

THE PRE-AMPLIFIER CIRCUIT

The Pre-Amplifier board, expressly designed for the perfect integration with the power module assembly includes several facilities like direct link with BM 3001 dedicated paging microphone, it permits to wire the console even 100s meters far from the mixer amplifier by using simple CAT5 FTP cable.

Furthermore the preamplifier board is equipped with a microprocessor which monitors the status of the power supply and power amplifier circuits, manages different priorities configurations among the inputs and generate the chime-tone, optionally accessible from each input. Thanks to its incredible high-quality audio circuit, the AM 2000 Series mixer amplifiers it is an innovative amplifier family with technological breakthroughs.

THE CABLING

Finally internal wiring of the 2000 Series amplifiers and the mechanical solutions developed show the flexibility of the whole project which involves 10 other public address Amplifiers based on same technology but different in power and features/facilities.

2000 Series is a project carried-out by a team of 10 engineers at RCF headquarters for over two years and it  represents the latest technology solution for the EASY LINE SOLUTIONS Commercial Audio Public Address systems.

AMPLIFICATION SYSTEM FOR INDOOR SYSTEMS Eg. GYM, SCHOOL HALL, PLACES OF WORSHIP ETC….

This example shows a basic sound system for a small capacity gym, where the use of music is required to amplify voices during players’ training sessions, to provide information to the public and players during matches, for music reproduction during all these events, or to fulfil a multitude of other needs. The AM 2160 amplifier can be connected with 4 microphones (cable or wireless) and 2 (stereo channels) music outlet sources. For larger gyms, other speakers can be added to take full advantage of the 160 W available on the AM 2160 system 100V outlet or, for special needs, the more powerful AM 2320 (320 W, code 121.35.059) which can accommodate up to ten MQ80P speakers.

PUBLIC ADDRESS SYSTEM FOR SMALL PLACES OF WORSHIP

A basic installation for small places of worship comprising: floor-standing dynamic microphone for choirs or soloists (MD 7600), lectern with gooseneck microphone complete with accessories for either in-built or lectern surface mounting (MC 4040), floor-standing gooseneck microphone for podiums (MC 4040), boundary microphone for podiums (MT3200). The column audio speakers are designed to contain the sound to hearing level and prevent it rising towards the ceiling (which is generally quite high), thereby reducing the amount of atmospheric reverberations that are created.
For these types of installations, it is important not to place the microphones too close to the audio speakers and these should never be directly facing the microphones.
