Apogee Quartet – How to set up multiple speaker sets
With Quartet you can have up to three sets of speakers connected at the same time, and switch between the three either on Quartet’s front panel, or in Quartet’s companion software Maestro.
First click on the output page, now click on on the the “Stereo” tab. You will see
Line, Stereo, 2 Speaker sets, 3 Speaker sets, and 5.1
Now choose either 2 or 3 Speakers sets… depending on how many sets of speakers you will be connecting to Quartet.
Now click on Device settings in Maestro
Click on “Touch Pad A” and choose “Engage Speaker Set 1”
Click on “Touch Pad B” and choose “Engage Speaker Set 2”
And if you chose “3 Speaker sets in the Output page…
Click on “Touch Pad C” and choose “Engage Speaker Set 3”
If you only chose 2 speaker sets in the output page… You can assign “Touchpad C”
to any other function in the list.
Now with your multiple sets of speakers connected and powered on… you can choose between them by simply pushing the A, B, or C button on Quartet’s front panel
or in Maestro’s Output page.
If you choose to switch speaker sets in Maestro’s Output page only… You can use the A,B, and C button on Quartet’s front panel for any of the other functions.
Volume stays the same for all speaker sets when you adjust the output level.
You can however level match the different sets of speakers using the faders in the output page
Now you can leave your power amp levels at the optimal level, yet still have perfectly matched levels when switching between speaker sets.
