Architectural Specs

The radiator-emitter shall have a single carrier transmitting area of no less than 10,000 ft²  (929 m²) or greater for each radiator specified when used with specified receiver. The radiator shall be powered via CAT-5 cabling and the RF from the transmitter shall be carried by 50 ohm coaxial cable. The radiator shall have three indicating LEDs for power, no carrier present and carrier present. The radiator LEDs shall be deactivated after 30 minutes if there is no audio signal present from the transmitter. The radiator shall come in a white or grey color and shall include all of the mounting hardware capable of mounting the radiator on a wall, on a ceiling, in a corner, on a desk, on a mic stand or on a tripod. The Listen LA-140 is specified.

Used With
QHow much coverage is provided with the LA-140?
AApproximately 10,000 ft² (929 m²).
QDoes the number of audio sources (carriers) affect the coverage?
AYes, for two (2) sources (carriers), the total coverage is half of 10,000 ft² (929 m²). For four (4) sources (carriers), the coverage per carrier is one-fourth.
QHow many radiators can you use on a system?
AUp to 100.
QHow many radiators will I need?
ARefer to the technical resource section of the Listen website for assistance in making this calculation.
QDoes the LA-140 come with a power supply?
ANo, you must use either the power supply included with the LT-82 transmitter or purchase the optional LA-205 power supply.
QHow do I connect multiple radiators?
AYou can daisy-chain the radiators together using coax cables. Power for up to two radiators can be daisy-chained using a short length of CAT-5 cabling or you can power two radiators off one transmitter.
QCan I disable the LEDs on the radiator?
AYes, the LEDs can be turned off at a switch on the back of the radiator.
QHow many emitting diodes does the LA-140 have?
AThe LA-140 radiator has 84 diodes. It has 7 columns of diodes with 12 diodes each. If one diode goes out, you will lose only the diodes on that column.
QWhat is the warranty of the LA-140?
AThe LA-140 has a 3-year warranty.
QHow is power delivered to the radiator?
APower is delivered with CAT-5 cables (connected between the radiator and either the LT-82 transmitter or the LA-205 power supply).
QHow many radiators can be powered from the LT-82 or LA-205 power supply?
QWhat is the purpose of the delay compensation switch?
AThis switch allows you to set up delay timing in a multi-radiator system so that each radiator receives the carrier at exactly the same time. This prevents signal dropouts that can be caused by out-of-phase signals (multi-path). With Listen’s delay compensation switch, it is not necessary to cut all of your coaxial cables to the same length - your shorter runs can use shorter cables, keeping your installation clean (and cost-effective).
