  • Page 9: Section 2: Speaker Switching

    Speaker Switching Section 2: Speaker Switching The amplified signal from each audio amplifier must be connected to a control module, which will switch the signal to a speaker circuit when necessary. Figure 2.1 through Figure 2.4 illustrate the wiring configurations for the AA-100 and AA-120 audio amplifiers. NOTE: SURVIVABILITY CLAUSE: Per the National Fire Alarm Code, NFPA 72, all circuits necessary for the operation of the notification appliances shall be protected until they enter the evacuation signaling zone that they...
