The rule for calculating the total effective impedance is to divide the entire circuit into individual smali series of parallel sub-circuits and apply the foregoing rules to them, The rallowing is an example using 16 x 8 Ohm speakers. Esch schematic is an impedance equivalent to its predecessar bur has been simplified. 211-4) = Z1 + Z2 + etc. Z(1-4) = 32 Ohms Z(5-8) ES = 32 Ohms SPEAKER CONNECTIONS In connecting speakers toe public address amplifier it is important to present the amplifier with the load impedance it is designed to handle, Failure to do this can cause overheating and component failure. In marty Gases problems can take months to appear in the form of reduced reliability and unnecessary service calls. A load impedance that is too low is especially bad, You should strive to have a load impedance of not less than 70% of the chosen ermolifler output Impedance, For example, do not connect a 4 Ohm speaker to the 8 Ohm ou tout. Driving a load of higher impedance than rated amplifier output is not as serious, but results in a power loss proportional to the mismatch and should be avoided. For example, driving a 16 Ohm load through the 8 Ohm output will result in a 50% loss in power. The high impedance mismatch should be kept to less than 200%, especially if it is anticipated that more than 50% of the rated amplifier power will be re quired. There are two methods of connecting groups of speakers to the amplifler. Firstly, using the low impedance (i.e. 4, 8, 16 Ohm) Outputs. This is prefer able where: - Lal Auns are short (less than 200 ft. (70 m]). (b) Few horns or speakers are to be used (l.e. typically 4-8) le) Same sound levels are required at cach speaker. (d) Low impedance also provides slightly berper fidelity and frequency response. High impedance or constant voltage is the second method and is preferable where! - (c) The runs are long and line losses are to be avoided. (b) Many speakers are to be used, (c) Different sound levels are required at different locations, for example Indaar speakers and outdoor horns. id) Future expansion possiblities require flexibility in wiring layout. The following is a more detailed discussion of these two methods. Z(9-12) H = 32 Ohms 12 Z(13-16) - 32 Ohms 1/Z1 = 1/Z(1-4) + 1/2(5-8) + 1/Z(9-12)+ 1/Z(13-16) 1/2 - 1/32 + 1/32 + 1/32 Z(1-4) = Z1 + Z2 + 2x + Za Z(5-8) = 2(9–12) = 7(13-16) = 32 Ohms = Zx = 8 Ohms - As can be seen, a problem arises If one more speaker must be added at some future date, as all the connections must be changed. This is not much of a problem If only a few speakers are involved, but if the network is extensive, the problem is significant, in addition, failure of one speaker can take out a mumber of associated units. LOW IMPEDANCE CONNECTION The speekers must be connected so as a present a combined impedance equal to the selected amplifier output impedance, i.c. 4, 8, 16 Ohms. The connections should be arranged in a series/perallel combination to achieve this according to the following formulee. The impedance should be between 70% and 200% of the output impedance selected. If the amplifier is to be driven anywhere neer its full rated output the impedance should be well within these tolerancés. HIGH IMPEDANCE OR CONSTANT VOLTAGE (25V & 70V) SYSTEMS The high impedance or constant voltage method of impedance matching uses a high impedance amplifier output which is transformed down to 8 Ohms by an impedance matching transformer et each individual speaker. The big advantages of this approach is compared to low impedance are: - Series - Connected Speakers (1) Reduced line losses and ability to use smaller wire gauges. This is due to the higher voltage and reduced current in the speaker lines. (2) Much simpler Impedance matching procedures and connections. Constant voimage is a misnomer in that the amplifier does not always produce 70V Rather the amplifier Ou Dur impeden irrespective of its reted power, it will produce 70.7 volts ou tout at full power. Thus a 10 Watt amplifier oprimum load would have an impedance of 500 Ohms (V/P - 70.7°/10), a 40 Watt amp would be 126 Ohms and 100 Wat amp, 50 Ons: 2- + N Z1 = Z1 + Z2 + Z:..... + where ZT total combined load impedance and ZN = individual speaker impedance Parallel - Connected Speakers Multiple transformer raps allow the impedance 9t ench speaker to be adjust ed individually to give y total matched load. Because of the high impedance arrangement, the system is easier to impedance match and te also inherently less susceptible to problems caused by mismatching. The transformer taps are marked in Watts instead of Ohms (usually 4, 2, 1, 6). Again, It should be bamed in mind that mese levels of power output are only achieved when the transformer is working at 70.7 volts. The trans formers are connected in paraller. A good match is obtained by ensuring that the oral af all rap settings fits into the rerge of 40-80% of rated amplifier output. 8096 is chosen to allow for transformer insertion loss. "Ic is also good practice not to drive the amplifier to 100% of its capacity. Examples are shown below. For simplicity it is assumed that all rap battings ara the serre at each speaker. 73 --LV ZT 1/21 + 1/Z2 +1/Z3 + ....1/ZN uzit For 40 Watt amplifier the range 40-80% is equivalent to 16-32 Warts. Therefore: 6 speakers x 4 Watt taps each = 24W ........Good match 4 speakers x 1 Wort taps each = 4w, ......Poor match 20 speakers x 1 Watt taps each = 20w ........Good match 20 speakers 1 4 Watt tapeech = 80w ........Very poor match Overioad 30 speakers z 1 Wats cops each = 30w ..... ...Good merch NOTE: None of the above tep settings guarantee the actual sound levels through each speaker. This is as much a function of the master volume control as the tap setting. The setting simply defines the maximum power consumed by an 8 Ohm speaker of presented with 70.7 volt Input In the case of a small number of speakers, it is always preferable to use a higher tap setting and reduced the sound level by turning down the master volume control. In calculating the amplifier rating needed for a typical music/paging system using speakers distributed in an office environment, a good rule of thumb is to allow about TW per speaker and space speakers & 1% X ceiling height. For noisy areas, or where the volume level required is higher, more power 15 required. (1) Connect one side of a flashlight battery to one of the speaker terminals. (2) Momenterily contact the other speaker terminal to the other side of the battery Note direction of cone movement (inward or outward). Merk the speaker cermine that corresponds to the positive side of the battery. (5) Repeat the same procedure for each successive speaker, making sure that the direction of cone movement is the same for gach case. (6) If the speaker cones are all to move in the same direction, connect the marked terminals to each other and the unmarked terminals to gach other, if the cones are to move in opposite directions, as is the case when two speakers are facing each other, connect the marked terminal of each speaker to the unmarked terminal of each speaker. PHASING When using multiple speakers in a sound system Installation, it is advisable to phase the speakers in order to reduce the cancellation effect caused by improper phasing. Speakers out of phase will lose up to one-hall of their normal volume and will operate with poor tonal characteristics. For speakers facing in the same general direction, the speakers are in phase when all speaker cones move in the same direction when an equal signal is applied. With two speakers facing each other, proper phasing is achieved when the cone of one speaker movas inward while the cene of the other speaker moves outwards. If speakers are unmarked, or not the same model, the following procedure will allow fast and simple phasing. POWER LOSS IN LONG LINES For long lines the power loss in the lines (IR) becomes a significant factor. The power supplied by the amplifier is effectively reduced by the line foss. Far a 0.5 db loss in sound pressure the total wire resistance must be limited to 6% of speaker impedance. The following table shows the calculated two wire cable lengths permissible for a number of wire sizes in feet, For a 1 db loss, the lengths may be doubled. For 2 db loss, multiply by 4.4.
