T o ensure years of enjoyment from your NADY AU- DIO graphic equalizer , please read and understand this manual thoroughly before using the unit. These five equalizer models are each designed for mounting in a standard 19" equipment rack or one of the many rack type portable cases available on the market.

9. IEC Power Cord Receptacle This is used to connect the AC power source to your equalizer . Power requirements: 1 15/230V AC, 50/60Hz 10. AC V oltage Selector Set this slide switch to match your line voltage supply . CAUTION: For new installations and portable sound systems, or in any situation in which the AC power is suspect, it is wise to confirm appropriate voltage and line polarity BEFORE connecting the instrument to the power source.
By routing the signal from the mixer to the main power amplifiers (or crossover), the overall frequency of the mix may be altered to do a number of things. A. Through the use of a real-time audio spectrum analyzer , a calibrated microphone, and a pink noise source, the audio system may be "TUNED" to make the overall audio spectrum response of the audio reinforcement system and the room environment flatter in its frequency response.
