Frequently Asked Questions


Can I change the way the front panel LED lights function and move?

There are a number of Light Modes available as built-in options in the Numark Lightwave loudspeakers.  For example:

  • Mood: The lights will light up solidly.
  • Meter: The column of lights will simulate a digital volume meter.  Lower-level signals trigger only bottom lights.  Higher-level signals trigger all lights.
  • Mix: The lights will light up according to the frequency spectrum of the audio signal.  Bass frequencies will produce more red light.  Mid-range frequencies will produce more green light.  Treble frequencies will produce more blue light.
  • Pulse: The audio signal will cause the lights to pulse with one color (determined by the Color Select knob) with their brightness determined by the Brightness knob.
  • Party: When the Color Select knob is fully counterclockwise, the LEDs cycle rapidly through a pre-programmed dynamic show of colors and meter levels.  Turn the Color Select knob clockwise from this position to change to a slower continuous cycle of solid colors.  Turn the Color Select knob further clockwise to slow down how quickly the colors change.

To turn the lights completely off, turn the Brightness knob to its counterclockwise-most position.
