you disable the BYPASS switch, the LED will turn
off and all equalization settings will be restored. In
bypass mode, the audio signal will flow through
at unity gain.
Protecting your NADY AUDIO Graphic Equalizer:
Use only a household AC power source. Never use
a DC power source.
If water is spilled on or in the unit, unplug it and call
Make sure that the equipment is well ventilated and

a 6db or 12dB level adjust range. The dual color
range LED will indicate green for 6dB and red for
The input level control allows adjustment between
OFF (center detent) and +/-6dB. Note: The unit is
equipped with a red overload LED, which
illuminates when the signal reaches 5dB prior to
clipping. It is normal for the overload LED to flash
occasionally, but if the overload LED is on steady
you must readjust the level control. Below are
some tips to follow while doing the initial set-up.
. Set channel levels to the center detent (0dB-unity
gain) on the front panel.
. Enable the BYPASS switch (Note: The red LED is
. Set all slide controls to the center detent or 0dB
(unity gain) position.
. Select the 6dB range switch (green LED ON).
. Apply signal to the system.
. Disable the BYPASS switch, red LED OFF.
. If the CLIP (overload) LED is on you must turn
down the level control.
Signal levels from -18dBu to +18dBu are considered
normal. Do not directly connect microphones into the
equalizers. Microphones require a pre amp.
. You may now start equalizing your system.
. Switch the range switch to 12dB (red LED is lit) if
the 6dB range does not provide sufficient gain.
NADY AUDIO equalizers are equipped with a rear
panel ground lift switch. If, after setting up your
system, the system exhibits excessive hum or
buzzing, the problem may be that there is a ground
incompatibility between your equalizer the other
equipment in the same system. There are several
combinations that can be attempted. Note: ALWAYS
TURN YOUR AMPLIFIERS DOWN BEFORE
