Without compromise, the RS-8 Rock is a high performance speaker with three versatile
connectivity options. Use the RS-8 for conventional two-channel stereo applications to
provide separate left and right channels. - see connection 1
Alternately, connect the left and right amplifier channels to a single RS-8 Rock to provide
a combined (summed) output. - see connection 2 Both connections 1 & 2 provide an
8-ohm load for the amplifier.
Finally, use the RS-8 Rock in multi-speaker installations without the need for complex
wiring layouts or load matching devices. The 4X Single Channel wiring option provides
a 32-ohm load. - see connection 3 This allows up to four RS-8 Rocks to be connected
in parallel to a single amplifier channel while maintaining an 8-ohm load. Amplifiers with
4-ohm capability can drive up to eight Rocks per channel. 25 volt commercial systems see
a 20W load per speaker.

RS-8: One Rock - Three Solutions
1
Single Channel operation
requires two speakers for stereo
reproduction (one for left channel
and one for right).
2
Dual Channel operation ONLY
works with common ground
amplifiers. DO NOT USE BRIDGE
MODE AMPLIFIERS IN THIS
CONFIGURATION OR DAMAGE
MAY OCCUR TO THE AMPLIFIER.
Most amplifiers are common
ground. Dual Channel operation
requires only one speaker since
both channels are combined
within the speaker.
3
4X Single Channel operation
is available in Single Channel
mode only. When used in 25V
commercial systems this option
provides a 20W load.
Precautions:
DO NOT USE BRIDGE MODE AMPLIFIERS IN THE DUAL CHANNEL CONFIGURATION OR
DAMAGE MAY OCCUR TO THE AMPLIFIER. (Most amplifiers are NOT bridge mode.)
DO NOT bury the speaker so that the grille becomes partially covered. It is best to leave at
least 1 inch of space between the top of the ground cover and the bottom of the grille. Avoid placing the speakers where the grille will receive direct water spray.
