Rear Panel Functionality

On the rear of the Roadbuddy 10 Basic, you will find an Unbalanced line input (RCA) for connecting an external audio source (e.g. CD player, laptop). An incoming stereo signal is a mono summed internally. To activate the RCA input, switch 4 (AUX / MP3) on the control panel must not be pressed down, the incoming signal is now on channel 1 (CH 1). If the socket of the mini-jack input is in use, the RCA jacks of channel 1 (CH 1) are muted.

To activate the mini-jack input, switch 4 (AUX / MP3) on the control panel must not be pressed down, the incoming signal is now on channel 1 (CH 1). If the socket of the mini-jack input is in use, the RCA jacks of channel 1 (CH 1) are muted.

You can also select the input source for channel 1 (CH 1). When the switch is pressed down, the MP3 player is selected as a signal source; when the switch is not pressed down, the RCA or mini-jack input is selected. There is a dedicated volume controller for channel 1 (CH 1). Turning the dial to the right increases the volume and turning it to the left decreases it.

Channel 2#

The Roadbuddy 10 Basic offers a balanced microphone or line input (XLR / 6.3 mm jack combo). It is also possible to use an unbalanced microphone cable (mono jack). When a microphone is connected to the input CH 2, move the switch to the pressed position; for the connection of a line-level signal in the external playback device, leave it in the unpressed position.

Finally, Channel 2 has a dedicated volume controller for channel 2 (CH 2). Turning the dial to the right increases the volume and turning it to the left decreases it.

Channel 3#

Channel 3 on the Roadbuddy 10 Basic includes a balanced microphone or line input (XLR / 6.3 mm jack combo) It is also possible to use an unbalanced microphone cable (mono jack). When a microphone is connected to the input CH 3, move the switch to the pressed position; for the connection of a line-level signal in the external playback device, leave it in the unpressed position.

The is also a dedicated volume controller for channel 3 (CH 3). Turning the dial to the right increases the volume and turning it to the left decreases it.

Roadbuddy 10 Basic includes an Echo FX, Mixer & EQ

The Roadbuddy 10 Basic also includes an echo effect for the microphone channels MIC 1 IN (CH 2) and MIC 2 IN (CH 3) and wireless microphone. When the dial is turned to the left, the effect is disabled, when turned to the right, it raises the volume of the echo effect.

Also present is an equalizer low band for the summing channel (Master). When turned to the left, levels are lowered, when turned to the right, they are raised. In the centre position (resting point), the equalizer is inactive.

Equalizer high band for the summing channel. When turned to the left, levels are lowered, when turned to the right, they are raised. In the centre position (resting point), the equalizer is inactive. Volume control for the summing channel. When turned to the left, overall volume levels are lowered, when turned to the right, they are raised.

Power and Limiter

The LED lights blue when the device is properly connected to a mains supply and is turned on, or is operated with the built-in rechargeable battery. The use of the integrated limiter is signalled by the colour of the LED turning red (the speaker is operated at the limit). A short flash of the LED is not critical. If the POWER / LIMIT LED lights up red for longer or even permanently (the system is overloaded), reduce the summing level (Master Volume 14). Failure to do so may result in a distorted sound and possibly damage to the speaker system.

Finally the Roadbuddy 10 Basic includes an unbalanced line output with a 6.3 mm jack.
