This article refers to uploading speaker profiles for the Director and Director Matrix DSP amplifiers and for the RS500 or RS1000 subwoofer amplifiers.
To upload the speaker profiles, you will simply need to download the latest file from the product page of the Director or RS series amplifier that you have. You can get to the amplifier Download pages here. Save the Speaker Profiles file to your Desktop or Downloads folder on your computer.
Once you have downloaded the Speaker Profiles file you will need to log into the web interface of the amplifier by entering its IP address into a web browsers address field. If you need help on how to determine the amplifiers IP address on your network, please refer to this KB article IP Address
If you have a Director or Director Matrix DSP amplifier running on an earlier version of firmware (1.1.xx) you can update the firmware to 2.0.xx by following the instructions provided in this link (The RS series subwoofer amps started their life on FW version 2.0.xx) Firmware Update
If your Director amplifier is already on the latest 2.0.xx version of firmware, and for RS sub amps, once you are logged into the web interface you will see a gear icon in the upper right corner > select it to open the settings menu > select SPEAKER PROFILES > then select LOAD.
