Amp Pages

The Amp pages are used to control and monitor power 
amplifiers. There are four Amp pages: Amp 00–07, Amp 
08–15, Amp 16–23, and Amp 24–31. Each page can display 
the channels of up to eight power amplifiers. Power amplifi-
ers can have 2, 4, 6, or 8 channels. The screen shot shown here 
features two channels of a PC9500N power amplifier.

Amp name: 

This displays the power amplifier’s name. 

Only the first 21 letters of the name are displayed. To display 
the name in full, place the mouse pointer over the name.

POWER button: 

This button is used to set the power 

amplifier to On or Standby.

Mode indicator: 

This displays the power amplifier mode 

for each pair of channels: STEREO, PARALLEL, or BRIDGE.

Channel name: 

Channel names are displayed here. To dis-

play the name in full, place the mouse pointer over the name. 
To name a channel, right-click its icon in the network tree 
and choose Rename from the pop-up menu.

PROTECT indicator: 

The status of the power amplifier’s 

protection system is displayed here. Normally there’s no indi-
cation. If the amplifier’s protection system is activated, for 
example, the power supply to the power amplifier’s driver 
section fails because of overheating, “PROTECT” is dis-
played. It’s also displayed if the power amplifier is set to 
Standby by clicking the POWER button in NetworkAmp 
Manager.

Output CLIP indicator: 

This indicator lights up red 

when the channel is clipping.

Output meter: 

This 12-segment meter displays the chan-

nel’s output level in either watts or volts (see preference on 

page 8

).

Impedance indicator: 

This displays the channel’s load 

impedance.

Temp meter: 

This 12-segment meter displays the chan-

nel’s temperature in either centigrade or Fahrenheit (see 
preference on 

page 8

). The value on the right of the meter is 

the temp peak hold value. The numerical value below the 
meter is the current temperature. To reset peak temp hold, 
right-click the meter and choose “Reset temp hold on this 
channel” or “Reset temp hold on all channels” from the 
pop-up menu.

Input meter: 

This 12-segment meter displays the channel’s input level in dB.

ATT fader: 

This fader attenuates the channel’s input signal. The numerical value below 

the fader is the current attenuation setting in dB. Attenuation can also be set by clicking the 
Up and Down arrow buttons, or by entering a value from the keyboard.

Phase button: 

This button is used to set the channel’s input signal phase: Normal or 

Reversed.

Mute button: 

This button is used to mute the channel.
