Installation of the S5160 is a straightforward process.
IMPORTANT: Amplifier must be installed following
the directions described below, to insure adequate
performance and safety never install the
amplifier with less free spacing around the
amplifier than the specified.
1. The Synthesis S5160 power amplifier has been
designed to be mounted in EIA standard racks or stacked
freestanding as long as there are four inches (10cm) of
free spacing around the amplifier (Top, sides and rear) If
the S5160 is being mounted in a rack, it is suggested that
its feet be removed prior to installation. If the S5160 will
be stacked with other components, use the feet that came
attached to the unit. This will ensure that there is sufficient
air space underneath so that heat can be dissipated effec-
2. Make sure that the amplifiers are located in a well-venti-
lated, cool area. Be certain that the front and rear panels
are not obstructed, as the cooling fan brings air in from the
front and expels it at the rear. It is very important not to
obstruct the airflow from the center front panel; heat
buildup and premature failure may occur.
