CARVIN ENGINEERING DATA
Congratulations on your purchase of the AG100D Series III amplifier. We've
included all of the great features a solo performer needs, such as three inde-
pendent channels with separate volume and EQ, MID sweep control, phantom
mic power and 5 band Graphic EQ. Then we added our dual 24 Bit Digital Effects
Processor. Additional features include, mid & HI Contour switches on chan-
nel 1, Bass and Mid Contour switches on channel 2.
Channels 1's voicing is designed for standard electric or acoustic guitars while
channels 2 and 3 will also accommodate line level signals from keyboards, tape
decks, drum machines and a balanced microphone, making the AG100D well
suited for a "One-Man-Band" stage set-up.
We haven't neglected the bass player with the bass tuned enclosure and '1
Titanium HF Driver, combined with 100 watts RMS of power—ideal for acoustic
or electric basses. You can play bass and guitar simultaneously without degrad-
ing the guitar signal. Just plug the bass into channel 2 and start thump'n!

AG100D ACOUSTIC/PA AMP Series III
CONNECTING AC POWER TO YOUR AG100D
• Use only a grounded (3 prong) power outlet to prevent a shock hazard. This also gives
the quietest grounding for the amplifier
CONNECTING INPUTS TO YOUR AG100D
• Channel one is specially designed for acoustic and electric guitars using a 1/4" phone
shielded cable.
• Channel two is an instrument/line input. Any unbalanced device such as another guitar,
tape recorders, drum machine, or keyboard can be plugged in using a 1/4" phone
plug shielded cable.
• Channel three is a microphone & line input. Plug a microphone or line level device
into the balanced XLR MIC input using an XLR shielded microphone cable and a 1/4"
shielded cable from your tape machine. Both can be used at the same time.
TURNING ON YOUR AG100D
• Adjust all three channel volume controls to their off position (full counter clockwise).
• Turn the Gain control to "0" on Channel 1
• Adjust all "EQ" tone controls to their center detent position.
• Adjust all channel effects sends return to their off "center" position.
• Turn the AG100D on by the power switch on the front panel and watch for the power
LED to come on.
• Plug in your instruments and microphone into the appropriate channels, and adjust
the volume controls to the desired playing level. (For detail on the individual chan-
nel tone controls and the graphic equalizer, see the appropriate sections in this manual.)
