Default Mute

How do you operate the mute? There's only the power button on the front panel.

The "mute" is not a function like the normal Mute in a preamp.
Rather it shorts the input via the incoming 1k resistors (to avoiding loading the preamp excessively) so that in case of a fault we can excute a controlled shut down.
The protection board is designed to do that for you.
So no there is not a separate button to mute the power amp, if you that is what you meant.

Alexis,

could you possibly explain a little better so that even I might understand a fraction

Maybe simply by showing a photo of the recommended jumper configuration for a complete standard build with power, speaker, input and mute relays. Preferably together with a brief description of what this configuration does to the amp when this changes between different states (off, standby, on and fault - I assume).

How can a fault condition be simulated to test the circuit?

Any suggestions for suitable board-to-wire connectors (2 mm pitch I think)?

Thanks,

Nic

I guess standby will not work with crc.

Standby in the sense that the current is switched off will indeed only work with the regulator.
So I do hope those Regulator alpha testers will test them soon.

Default correct configuration of the mute board

Of course Dave and Patrick are wright so here is the correct (and tested) configuration of the mute board. I misread the relay data sheet and got the coil polarity wrong (topside view for through-hole versions and bottom view for surface mount versions)
I also succeeded in getting the polarity of the diode wrong...... Nothing serious happens: a tiny bit of smoke and a short

That is why you should not follow my example

Hi Nic, would you post a picture of your mute board?

Hi Patrick,
Which means the mute only goes into action when there's a fault with the amplifier. The board will mute the pre-amp and also cut off speaker connection at that moment as well. Then we can turn off the amp. Is this true?

Thanks.

And during start up.
So you can, if you like warm up your FETs first before playing music.

Yes.
If an amp is at fault, you don't want single to go through it anyhow.
So better to ground the inputs.

The F5X preamp has a different, remote-controllable mute function to silent its output at any time.
That is the normal Mute that people know in their amplifier.
