Use with Four Zone Relay Audio Switcher Units
There are multiple configurations for pairing the A 4488 with the A 4469/89A four zone audio switcher units. Two examples are detailed below. The first details connection between A 4488 and multiple individual zone amplifiers via either line or mic level (mic level shown in diagram)
The second configuration allows for a single zone amplifier powering all zones at once. In this configuration the amplifier output is fed into the A 4469/89A and speaker circuits are connected directly to the zone outputs. The A 4488 can then be used to page each zone as desired.
A maximum of two paging consoles can be connected to the audio switchers at the same time. These work in a “first in, best dressed” arrangement. Each unit must be assigned an ID number through DIP switch settings on the rear of the unit. Connection between the A 4488 and audio switcher is via a Cat5e cable which carries power and the balanced audio output from the microphone.
