Help with 12v trigger on a Monster Power HTS5100
I’ve got a Monster Power HTS5100 and I’m needing assistance with the DC Out to trigger my mono block amps.
I cannot use the 12v triggers from my AVR for some reason they are not working. So the Monster Power Center should do what I need (I think!) and hope.
I need to set it up so that when up my AVR is powered up the Monster Power Center sends a trigger to the amps. I’ve got all the cables I need I just can’t figure out how to setup the dip switches in the back.
All of my equipment is plugged into the back of the Monster Power Center as Unswitched. I swore I could set it up so that when I Power on the AVR Ir sends a signal to the amps and boom!
Do I have to connect a 12v trigger cable from the AVR to the Monster Power Center? If this is the case then this won’t work since my AVR triggers are not functioning. Since they aren’t functioning on the back of my AVR I thought I could set it up so that electrical spots on the back of the AVR was plugged in a UNSWITCHED port and then it would send a trigger to the DC out and hence power on my amps via the 12v trigger cable.
