The Plena Mixer Amplifier

The Plena Mixer Amplifier is a high performance,
professional public address unit for mixing up to six

The volume of each microphone/line signal can be
individually adjusted to obtain the required mix; the
mixed output is controlled via the master volume
control and separate high/low tone controls.
The unit is easy to use, and provides a crisp call or clear
music. The amplifier also has enhanced features such as
ducking level control, priority, labelling, and setting
All Microphone/line inputs can be switched between
microphone level and line level sensitivity. The inputs
are balanced but can also be used unbalanced. Phantom
power can be selected via a DIP switch to provide
power to condenser microphones. Input channels 1
and 2 can take priority over all other microphone and
music inputs:
Input 1 can be activated by contact closure on a PTT
(push to talk). A chime can be configured to precede
an announcement.
Input 2 can be switched automatically if a signal is
available at the input, for example. if someone
speaks into the microphone (VOX activation).
A telephone/70 V emergency input with VOX
activation is also provided for easy integration with
another PA system or a telephone paging system. It has
its own volume control and overrides all other inputs,
including the call station and inputs 1 and 2.
The unit also has a line output to add amplifiers for
larger systems that require more output power. This
output can be switched to music only, for example, so
that music on hold can be provided for the telephone
system. Loop through input and output connections
enable external sound processing equipment (for
example, an equalizer or Plena feedback suppressor) to
be connected between the preamplifier and the power
amplifier stages. A feedback suppressor can ensure
feedback-free, clear speech for all microphones.
Users can create custom labels for inputs, music sources,
and output zones. These labels can be attached to the
special holders at the front of the mixer amplifier.
Colored pins can also be inserted at various positions
around the volume and tone dial controls to indicate
favorite settings for a particular application.
