Overview

CMX6208SP is an integrated active subwoofer. It has built-in DSP audio processor and 3- channel amplifier. The 800W channel powers the internal subwoofer and the other two 280W channels can power external speakers such as CMX6903, CMX6403 or CMX6203 as system solution. The built-in DSP processor includes compressor, limiter, noise gate, parameter equalizer, matrix routing, delay and preset. CMX6208SP allows central multiple device management networking through USB, TCP/IP and RJ45, as well as audio transmission through Dante. System with CMX6903, CMX6403 and CMX6203, it provides flexible configurations for different applications. For example, conference rooms, multifunction halls, rental PA sound reinforcement.

8.3 Output port wiring
Before output connection is established, please ensure that the product’s power cable is completely disconnected and inspect the total impedance of all speakers at all output. If multiple speakers are connected to the output (that is, in series, in parallel, or in seriesparallel), in a low impedance mode, please ensure that the total system impedance is  within the channel specification.
Cable specifications are determined according to the following wiring guidelines, depending on a distance between the power amplifier and the speaker.

Distance: Cable specification:
Within 25 ft. 16 AWG
26-40 ft. 14 AWG
41-60 ft. 12 AWG
61-100 ft. 10 AWG
101-150 ft. 8 AWG
151-250 ft. 6 AWG

Note: never use shielding cables for output wiring.
