Much of the setup of the Rockville RPG2x10 V2 is similar to the setup of other sound systems, and many aspects require plain common sense. Safety should always be your first concern. Always use grounded outlets and three-wire extension cords. Run sound system cables in a way to prevent the danger of tripping and tape them down if needed. Place the speaker stands and mixer on a solid, level surface. Following these guidelines will help prevent personal injury and equipment damage, ensuring years of trouble-free use.
Stands and Speakers
Remove the speaker stands from the case. Be sure the legs on the stand are fully extended to provide a stable base for the speakers and are positioned on a level surface. Tighten the thumbscrew on the base so that it is snug, but do not overtighten (figure 1). Raise the speaker stands to the desired height, tighten the thumbscrew and install the safety pin as shown in figure 2.
Place speakers on stands and position them so that they will face toward the audience and away from the microphones. Connect speaker cables from the jack on the lower front of the speaker to the speaker outputs on the back of the mixer. Connect the left speaker to the LEFT OUTPUT and the right speaker to the RIGHT OUTPUT.Only connect the included speakers to the mixer. The Rockville GB1’s speakers provide an optimal load for the powered mixer and using other speakers may result in equipment damage.
Microphones and Line InputsThe RPG2x1 0 V2’s powered mixer is designed to work with any good-quality, balanced, dynamic or condenser microphone. Connect the included microphone(s) to the XLR (three-pin) input connectors as shown in figure 1. If using more than one microphone, connect them in the order they will be on stage for easy adjustment to each microphone. To connect a line-level device such as a keyboard, use a 1/4″ instrument cable and insert it into the corresponding 1/4″ jack as shown in figure 2.
Media Playback Sources
The RPG2x10 V2’s powered mixer will accept various media playback devices.
- To connect a turntable or a CD player use the CHANNEL 4 RCA inputs.
- To connect an MP3 player or smartphone with media playback capabilities use the 1/4″ Line In jack or the RCA Line In inputs.
- To connect a USB memory stick or SD/MMC card using the corresponding inputs on the mixer panel. Use the screen and controls to navigate and playback audio files.
- To connect via Bluetooth, simply pair your device with the mixer.
PowerConnect the power cord to the receptacle on the back panel of the unit, and then to a suitable electrical outlet. If an extension cord is required, make sure it is a three-wire cord with an intact ground pin to preserve the safe ground.
GENERAL USE TIPS
Microphone UsageWhen practical, a single microphone is preferred. Additional microphones pick up more sound from the speakers and each mic must then be turned down to prevent feedback. However, if you have difficulty balancing the level of different individuals with one mic or if you still cannot get sufficient gain, using more mics can offer an advantage. For example, giving several singers their own microphone allows placement of the microphones much closer to each singer. This increases the volume of the sound at the mic and far outweighs any detrimental effect from using multiple mics. It also allows the volume of each mic to be adjusted separately for proper balance.Avoiding Irritating FeedbackThe placement of your microphone is critical in avoiding feedback through the RPG2x10 V2. Never set up your microphone in front of the speaker. Always set up your microphone behind the speaker. When approaching the speaker to make any adjustments, we recom-mend approaching the speaker from the rear and not walking directly towards the front of the speaker.
Setting Controls and Turning Unit OnBefore turning on the power, make sure all speakers, microphones, and other input devices are connected. Set Master Volume con to the 12 o’clock position and all other controls all the way down. Turn the power on by placing the ON/OFF switch located on the back of the mixer to the ON position.Adjusting Gain and Volume ControlsThe optimal setting for the powered mixer and included speakers is marked on the MAS-TER VOLUME control. Adjust the CHANNEL LEVEL control until the desired volume is achieved. If the desired volume is reached with the CHANNEL LEVEL turned down to one of the first three positions, turn the MASTER VOLUME down so you can turn the CHANNEL LEVEL up. If the desired volume is achieved when the CHANNEL LEVEL is close to max then raise the MASTER VOLUME so you can lower the CHANNEL LEVEL. These are the same as any basic mixer function.Adjusting Tone ControlsFor each active channel adjust the BASS and TREBLE controls to achieve the desired sound. Use moderation when making these adjustments, as extreme high settings of any of these controls can lead to a distortion of the sound and an increased chance of feedback on microphone inputs.HIGHThis High EQ shelving type of active tone control varies the treble frequencies (+/- 15dB at 12kHz) and is designed to remove noise or add brilliance to the signal, depending on the quality of the source.LOWA shelving type of EQ that varies the bass frequency levels (+/- 15dB at 80Hz). Low EQ adds depth to thin-sounding signals or cleans up the muddy ones As with any EQ, use sparingly. Too much of this EQ can give you a booming bottom end.
EQUALIZATION AND EFFECTS
Graphic EqualizerUnlike the BASS and TREBLE, controls on each channel that adjust only that specific channel’s input signal, the three-band equalizer adjusts the tonal balance of all the signals going through the powered mixer. It offers control over LOW (BASS), MID, and HIGH (TREBLE) frequencies (+1-15dB) and offers flexibility in adjusting the sound. This equalizer also helps reduce or eliminate acoustic feedback.
EffectsThis unit has a built-in digital delay. It’s a reverb effect and features REPEAT, TIME, and LEVEL controls. The effect affects all channels (fig.1) and can be individually controlled at each channel using the EFFECT control (fig. 2).
BLUETOOTH AND MEDIA
Bluetooth OperationTo listen to the music via the Bluetooth wireless connection, you must first pair (link) your RPG2x10 V2 with your Bluetooth phone and/or music device. Turn off any Bluetooth devices previously paired with the RPG2x10 V2. Turn on the Bluetooth feature on your phone or music device. Make sure the RPG2x10 V2 is ready for a Bluetooth connection. The Blue-tooth mode must be active. The LCD will say, “Bluetooth input”. Place your phone or music device in Bluetooth search mode. The phone or music device will begin searching for the RPG2x10 V2. Select the unit, which should appear as Rockville, from the search results on your phone or music device. Select Ok or Yes to pair with your phone or music device.Supported Audio File Types
Media Source PlaybackHook up your media source device as mentioned previously. Which inputs are active will be displayed on the LCD screen. Use the controls on the source device for play, stop, forward and reverse functions. Adjust CHANNEL 4 controls on the mixer for the desired sound. For media playback using an MP3 player, smartphone, or other similar device use the MODE button to navigate to the proper setting. Connect using a stereo 1/4″ cable or a 3.5mm to RCA cable and use the source device for playback controls. When a device is connected to the 1/4″ jack the RCA jacks are automatically disabled. For audio file playback from a USB memory stick, use the MODE button to navigate to the USB setting. Use the LCD screen and controls to navigate and playback supported audio files. Use the controls on the mixer for play, pause, forward, and reverse. Follow the same procedure for SD/MMC input.If you do not choose to navigate or select a certain file the RPG2x10 V2 will play the files in the order they are stored on your USB or SD/MMC memory device. Non-audio files will show up in your navigation but will have no audio playback if selected. Only audio files can be selected for playback.Note: The RPG2x10 V2 does not allow playback through multiple media inputs simultane-
- Bass and Treble control. Adjusts High and Low frequencies for the corresponding channel.
- Level control. Adjusts gain level for the corresponding channel.
- XLR microphone input. We recommend using professional balanced dynamic, condenser, or ribbon mics as they are least likely to be affected by interference. Low cost, high impedance talcs can be used, however, the level of background noise is higher since an unbalanced circuit is far more susceptible to interference.
