Using the included speakers, set up the system and try it out.
Connect the included speakers and your instruments to
the mixer.
Connect the included speakers to the SPEAKER L/R jack. Connect the sources
(guitar, other instruments) to the input jacks. For details, see “Connection
Example.”
Caution
Before connecting any devices, make sure to turn off the power for all devices (including microphones or the
included speakers). To avoid any possible malfunction, use only the speaker cables included with the device.
Also, before turning the power on or off, set the volume levels on all devices to minimum.
NOTE: For best results when connecting a electric guitar or bass guitar to the mixer, use a direct box, preamp (guitar
amp), or amp simulator.
Connection Example
Use the MASTER LEVEL control to adjust the overall volume.
Turning the power on
First, turn on the power to any connected devices, then turn
the STAGEPAS 300 power on. If you've connected powered
speakers to the mixer, turn on the power of the mixer first,
then the powered speakers.
Caution
Caution
If the LIMITER indicator flashes continuously, the internal power amplifier section is being
excessively overloaded and may malfunction.
To avoid any loud, unexpected noise from the speakers, first turn on the
power to those connected devices that are closest to the sound source.
Example: Sound source (CD player or instrument) → STAGEPAS 300 → (Power amplifier)
When turning off the power to the system, reverse the order described above.
The STAGEPAS 300 can be used in a wide variety of sound reinforcement applications,
from a full-band performance onstage to solo street performance—providing a
powerful, high-performance system in an exceptionally compact and portable package.
Connect a guitar or a microphone to the monaural input jacks (channels 1 to 4) and
connect a keyboard to the stereo input jacks (channels 5/6 or 7/8). If you have a
powered speaker, you can connect it to the MONITOR OUT jack for monitoring your
vocals. For optimum results in band performance applications and to create a more
powerful sound for music, make sure to set the SPEECH/MUSIC switch to MUSIC.
NOTE: For best results when connecting a electric guitar or bass guitar to the mixer, use a direct box,
preamp (guitar amp), or amp simulator.
Set the MASTER LEVEL control to the optimum position
(indicated by the arrow).

SPEAKER L/R jacks (for included speakers only)
Channel input jacks (CH 1 to 4)
These output the mixed signal channels from 1 to 7/8, and the level is adjusted with the MASTER
LEVEL control. When connecting the included speakers, make sure to turn the power off first.
Also, to avoid any possible malfunction, use only the included speakers and the speaker cables
included with the device.
For connecting a guitar, microphone, keyboard or other instrument/device. For low-level signals (such as
that of microphones), set the MIC/LINE switch to the MIC (
) position. For high-level signals (such as
keyboard instruments and audio equipment), set the MIC/LINE switch to the LINE (
) position.
REC OUT L/R jacks
These output the mixed signal channels from 1 to 7/8, and the level is unaffected by the MASTER
LEVEL control. You can use these jacks, for example, to connect to an external recorder.
MONITOR OUT L (MONO) /R jacks
These output the mixed signal channels from 1 to 7/8, and the level is adjusted with the
MONITOR OUT control. These jacks are convenient for connecting an external powered speaker
for monitoring purposes.
R
NOTE: On any given channel, you may use either XLR or phone jack, but not both. Please connect to
only one of these jacks on each channel.
Stereo channel input jacks (CH 5/6, 7/8)
Input the left and right channels of a stereo signal into the respective odd and even channels of
the mixer.These inputs are intended mainly for use with instruments and equipment having stereo
outputs, such as a synthesizer or CD player.
NOTE: The channel 5/6 input provides two sets of jacks—both phone jacks and RCA-pin jacks. Either one one of these
jacks may be used, but not both at the same time. Please connect to only one of these jacks on each channel.
MIC/LINE switch
Set this switch to MIC or LINE for channels 1 to 4, depending on the level of the input signal. For low-level
signals (such as that of microphones), set the switch to the MIC (
) position. For high-level signals
(such as keyboard instruments and audio equipment), set the switch to the LINE (
) position.
LEVEL meter
The LEVEL meter shows the level of the output signal from the SPEAKER L/R jacks.
Caution
If the LIMITER flashes continuously, the internal power amplifier section is being excessively
overloaded and may malfunction. Reduce the output level with the MASTER LEVEL control so
that the indicator flashes only briefly on the highest transient peaks.
POWER indicator
Equalizer
This lights when the POWER switch is ON. When the indicator flashes, the protection
circuit is operating. Check that the speaker cable is correctly connected to the mixer and
reapply the power.
HIGH Determines the level of the high frequency band for each channel. Rotating the knob
clockwise boosts the high frequencies and produces a clearer, crisper sound. If you start
getting feedback (a high-pitched squealing sound) or you want to make the sound softer and
less harsh, turn the knob counterclockwise slightly.

L O W Determines the level of the low frequency band for each channel. Rotating the knob clockwise
boosts the low frequencies and produces a deeper, warmer sound. If you start getting
feedback or you want to make the sound less boomy, turn the knob counterclockwise slightly.
MONITOR OUT Control
Determines the signal level output from the MONITOR OUT jack.
Microphones
NOTE: The MASTER LEVEL Control does not affect the signal via the MONITOR OUT Control.
REVERB switch
Set this switch to ON to recreate the rich ambience of various performance environments, such
as a concert hall or a night club. The switch lights up in green when REVERB is ON (
).
LEVEL control
Use these controls to adjust the volume balance among the various channels.
SPEECH/MUSIC switch
Set this switch to SPEECH (
) to optimize the mixer settings and sound quality for
speech purposes and announcements. Set this to MUSIC (
) to optimize the mixer
for musical performance. The switch lights up in yellow when it is set to MUSIC (
).
To reduce noise, set any LEVEL controls on unused channels to the minimum.
Caution
MASTER LEVEL Control
Determines the volume of the signal output from the SPEAKER L/R jacks. This allows
you to adjust the overall volume without changing the relative volume balance among
the various channels (made with the LEVEL controls) or the tone settings (made with
the Equalizer).
REVERB control
Determines the overall level of the reverb or echo that is applied to the
output signal. For best results, this level should not be set very high, to
avoid possible feedback and to prevent the sound from becoming
“muddy” with too much reverb.
The STAGEPAS 300 features a convenient storage
compartment in the speaker box for packing the included
power cable, speaker cable, Owner’s Manual (this booklet),
and an optional microphone, as shown above. Remove
the rear panel of the speaker and put in the things you
need. Carry the STAGEPAS 300 with you, and you’ve got
all you need to set up and perform—anywhere, anytime.
