Overview: The PA Series of commercial amplifiers is a quick and easy
solution to providing audio in restaurants, classrooms, retail spaces, and
offices. The PA2030 accepts one stereo and two mono line inputs,
allowing you to select from several different sources.
Output Power: The PA2030 will output 30 watts per channel x 2 channels
at 3Ω or 4Ω (Lo-Z). It can also produce a 60 watt mono signal at 70V or
100V (Hi-Z). The amplifier has a 4-pin, 7.62mm barrier strip speaker terminal.
Connections and Controls:
- Front Panel:
- Volume: Rotary control adjusts the volume output to the speakers.
Above the volume knob are two LEDs: the Volume Signal LED lights when the
signal output exceeds a certain level; the Volume Limit LED lights to
indicate the limiter has activated, and the volume needs to be turned down.
- Power Switch: The power switch lets you turn the amplifier on and
off. A power LED to the left of the switch will glow when the unit is on. If
the LED is flashing for 10 seconds or more, the internal temperature is too
high. The power should be turned off to allow the amplifier to cool.
- Rear Panel:
- AC Power Input: An IEC 3-prong input for connecting the
supplied power cord, or an optional power cord.
- Speaker Terminals: Barrier strip type speaker outputs.
You can make high-impedance connections (100V or 70V) or low-impedance
connections (3Ω/4Ω). Spade lugs (±0.23" outer width) or bare wire
connections work best. (For Hi-Z connections, only terminals A+ and B- are
- Output Switch: This 3-way switch sets the output type
of the amplifier: 100V (Hi-Z), 70V (Hi-Z), or 4Ω/3Ω (Lo-Z).
- DIP Switches: (see below)
- Line In: One stereo RCA line input (unbalanced) and two
3-pin Euroblock connectors (balanced) for connecting external sources. The
signals input from the RCA and Euroblock jacks are mixed to the output. You
can also connect the output of a Yamaha
MA2030 to the RCA input.
DIP Switches: The amp features 8 DIP switches on the rear panel. These
DIP switches let you configure the amplifier to suit your needs and application.
The functions available are as follows:
|Switch ||Function ||Options |
|1 - Output ||Sets the speaker
impedance if the output switch is set to 4Ω/3Ω (low impedance
connection) ||Up: 4Ω |
|Dn: 3Ω |
|4 - Speaker EQ ||Sets the speaker output
to appropriate frequency characteristics for Yamaha commercial
speakers ||Up: Off |
|Dn: On |
|5 - Speaker EQ ||If DIP switch 4 is set to
On, this optimizes for the type of Yamaha commercial speakers ||Up: Surface |
|Dn: Ceiling |
|7 - Mixer ||Sets the speaker output
to Stereo or Mono (when Low-impedance speakers are installed) ||Up: Mono |
|Dn: Stereo |
|DIP Switches 2, 3, 6, and 8 are not
Rack Mountable: With the optional
Rack-mount accessory kit, the PA2030 can be installed in a standard equipment
rack. The amplifier will fit into a 1U rack space.
