MANUAL
OVO8T
1
Introduction
Please read this manual before using the product in order to give you the needed
product and installation instruction to assure a seamless installation and non
compromised overall sound quality.
Thanks for purchasing our APart OVO8T speaker. Budget and quality sound united:
welcome the OVO-speakers. This series of cabinet speakers fit into any décor or
interior style. The OVO8T can be used in both 100V- and 16Ohm-systems thanks
to an easily accessible selection switch. The OVO8T uses a new bracket system that
allows a wide range of positioning. In case you want to place your OVO on a flat
surface, you can remove the bracket. We have designed a stand incorporated in
the foot of the speaker. The sturdy ABS plastic housing guarantees years of trouble
free musical enjoyment. Affordable, but by no means a compromise on sound
quality – typically APart!
Safety precaution
• Keep this manual for future reference.
• Take care of your speaker wires, they should be free of damage. Damaged
speaker wires might result in poor sound quality and can damage amplifiers.
• Only use accessories specified by the manufacturer
• Make sure the ceiling or wall construction can support the speakers weight.
• Use sufficient amount of speakers to avoid death-spots.
• No main power shall be connected to the loudspeakers, doing so will damage
the speaker.
• This apparatus should only be serviced by qualified personnel. If not warranty
might be void.
• The speaker grill is fixed, removing it can damage it.
• Use cable of the right gauge, certainly for long runs.

•
Use cables with clear color indication and maintain polarity throughout the
whole system.
• Avoid loud feedback from microphones, this can damage your speaker.
• Please check the units condition after unpacking. If the outside of the carton
box has been damaged, inform your shipper immediately.
• Take notice that the speaker must be protected from direct rain.

Connecting the speaker
Use the correct polarity when daisy chaining speakers! When a mistake occurs
in your daisy chain, it can severely impact speaker performance as there will be
audio-cancellation.
The daisy chain options are endless and the setup will depend on the capabilities of
your amplifier. Make sure when daisy chaining speakers that the total impedance is
not lower than the lowest specified impedance of your amplifier. Not following this
rule might result in distorted sound and might even damage your amplifier.
