Required Tools and Hardware

The AP-60 should be installed by a professional audio/video installer or other qualified professional. To install the system, the installer will need these tools:

Phillips screwdriver

Large adjustable wrench

Ladder

Hardware for securing the IR dome sensor and coaxial cable

Note Depending on your ceiling construction, additional tools and hardware may be required.

Installing the IR Dome Sensor The IR dome sensor is the first thing youll need to install. To ensure proper audio reception, the IR dome sensor should be positioned to have direct line of sight to most areas of the room. The IR dome sensor should also be mounted in a location free of obstructions and away from strong light sources. When choosing a location for the IR dome sensor, keep the following in mind:

Do not install the IR dome sensor or coaxial cable near power cables. This can cause unwanted audio noise or reduce the sensitivity and range of the IR dome sensor.

Do not bound the coaxial cable to any other cables.

Do not install the IR sensor near strong light sources, such as incandescent bulbs, halogen lamps, fluorescent lights, or a window.

The IR dome sensor must be mounted at least 3.28 feet (1 meter) away from fluorescent lights.

Do not install the IR dome sensor in a dusty environment. This can reduce the sensitivity and range of the IR dome sensor.

Do not paint the cover of the IR dome sensor.

The use of IR remote controls of any kind can interrupt the sound or cause noise.

The IR dome sensor receives reflected signals from the walls, floor, and ceiling. The reception may be reduced if the wall, floor, or ceiling colors are dark.

The sound may break up if the IR dome sensor is installed near a window or in a room with a lot of windows. Apply light-colored curtains or blinds to improve the sound quality.

Install the IR dome sensor on a ceiling that is less than 9.8 feet (3 meters) high. If the ceiling is too high, the IR dome sensor may not be able to receive the microphones signal from directly under the IR dome.

12
