Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, the amplifiers will remember the settings of maximum volume when dipswitch number 8 is placed in the upper position. This is most helpful if 10K ohm potentiometers are used or if the amplifier is used in a larger installation controlled from a DSP.

Is it possible to mute the amp when receiving a dedicated signal (Fire and Evac), especially for security reasons, e.g., in shopping malls or schools with voice alarms?

Yes, the amplifier can be triggered to go into standby using the GPIO contact on the back of the amplifier. A normally open (NO) or normally closed (NC) contact can be used.

Do I have to bridge outputs for 100V mode?

No, each output can be driven in either Low-Z or High-Z. This makes these amplifiers very flexible.

Why is there a maintenance USB port on the back?

The maintenance USB port can be used to update the built-in DSP in the amplifiers. Look at our website to find the latest firmware (It is normally not necessary to update the firmware).

Can I link PowerZone amplifiers together, as I can with the PowerZone Connect amplifiers?

No, only by linking the inputs. The PowerZone amplifiers do not have S/PDIF in and out, as the PowerZone Connect series.

The S/PDIF is a 2-channel output that can be used to send either a fixed line-source (2 mono or 1 stereo) out to another amplifier or one or two mixers, or expand a zone with extra amplifiers using a variable S/PDIF lineout signal that follows a stereo zone (or two mono zones).

How many amplifiers can I link with the S/PDIF?

The S/PDIF is normally used to expand a “zone” with more amplifiers if more power is needed. Up to 4 amplifiers can be linked together. Signal loss can occur if more amps are connected. (Use 75-ohm signal cable as described in the manual)

Do I have to bridge outputs for 100V mode?

Yes, when 100-volt outputs are wanted in the web GUI, two output channels are used to achieve High-Z. (see the manual and on the back of the amplifier, how to connect the speaker cables)

Where can I get the software to configure the DSP inside the Connect amplifiers?

The software (Firmware) is already inside the amplifier. Just connect to the amplifier using a web browser (see IP address in the manual), and the configuration can start from any device that has a browser.

Can I use 3rd party devices to control Blaze amplifiers?

Yes, we have an open API document, meaning all settings can be controlled from 3rd party devices via the LAN connection. The latest API document can be downloaded here. We even support the most popular brands with API “plug-ins” that can be downloaded from our website here

How do I adjust the amplifier's gain for optimal sound levels?

The end-user can control the zone volume (gain) via the Wall-S1 wall controller. The installer can use the intuitive installation web app to adjust all input and output gains, set the input sensitivity, and adjust the gain/trim for every input/output.

The end-user can change volume and source. The installer can customize settings for each controller using the installation software. You can change the background color of the display, the brightness of the screen and button light, and set a PIN code if desired.

How long can the network cable be?

As this uses a normal network CAT 5e cable (as a minimum) and PoE switches or routers, the standard network rules apply for the Wall-S1. Up to 100 meters between switches or Wall-S1.

Is it possible to change the Volume of an input source?

No, the Wall-S1 can change the master volume of the zone it is attached to. For creating presets of different volume settings for sources, use the mixers in the web app installation tool.

Where can I buy the wall mount box?

The Wall-S1 is a standard EU or US one-gang size and can therefore be purchased from almost all electrical suppliers or builder’s merchants.

Is it possible to change the Zone in the wall controller?

The Wall-S1 is designed as a single-zone controller to keep the interface simple for end-users. For multi-zone control, use one of the control systems supported with full API compatibility.

Can I change the name of zones and input sources on the wall controller?

No, to change the name of a zone or music source, use the installer web app (Refer to the installation manual). All settings done in the installer web app synchronize in real-time with the Wall-S1 and will be displayed to the user.

Is it possible to remove input sources from the Wall-S1 wall controller that people should not have access to – or don’t use?

Yes, only microphones or music sources wanted in each zone need to be present on the wall controller. In every zone, “Restrictions” can be used to remove unwanted or unused inputs. Installers can do this using the web app during amplifier and wall controller installation.

Is the Wall-S1 powered by PoE or from a power supply?

The Wall-S1 is powered from a PoE switch or router. A simple switch can be used as the wall controller uses very little power.

Does the Wall-S1 have a static or DHCP IP address?

The Wall-S1 comes with a DHCP IP address by default. If the amplifier is set to DHCP (instead of a static IP address), the wall controller will automatically show up in the installation web app, ready to be connected to the amplifier. (Use Firmware 1.6.1 or later)

Where can I get a demonstration of the Blaze speakers?

Contact the local distributor in your country; they can connect you with a local supplier.

Do I have to EQ the speakers?

No, download the EQ settings for the Blaze speakers from our website and upload them to a Blaze PowerZone Connect amplifier. The EQ settings also contain FIR filters, limiters, and crossovers for the CBL528.

Can I use all types of Speakon connectors and cables for the CBL523 and CBL528?

Yes and No! The CBL523 can be used with a 2 or 4-pole Speakon connector. The CBL528 uses a 4-pole Speakon connector as this speaker is bi-amped. Use cable thicknesses according to the lengths of the cable. (A schematic can be found on our website here)

How many CBL523 can I connect to one (1) PowerZone Connect 504?

The CBL523 is a 4-ohm speaker, and therefore, one speaker can be connected to each output. Meaning, 4 speakers in total on a PowerZone Connect 504 amplifier. For more speakers connected in parallel, use the larger 2U amplifiers as they can handle down to 2-ohm loads.

Is there a preferred amplifier for the CBL523 and CBL528?

In theory, all the PowerZone Connect amplifiers can be used. However, for the CBL523, the Connect 252/504 is a good match. To get full power, the bigger versions are recommended. For the CBL528, we recommend the Connect 3004, but lesser models can suffice if full power isn’t needed. Using the EQ settings from our website, the speakers are protected with limiters.
