PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE PROCEEDING • Before doing any installation or construction work, consult with your Yamaha dealer. • For optimum safety, the installation should be checked thoroughly at regular intervals. Some fittings may deteriorate over extended periods of time due to wear and/or corrosion. • When choosing the installation location, suspension wire and mounting hardware, make sure all are strong enough to support the weight of the speaker. • Make sure to take measures to prevent the speaker from falling down in the event of a installation failure. • When installing the safety wire to the wall, install it higher than the wire’s attachment point on the speaker, with as little slack as possible. If the wire is too long, and the speaker happens to fall, the wire may snap as a result of too much strain. Correct: Within 45° from a right angle Max. 45° 0° •When choosing a power amplifier for use with this device, make sure that the output power of the amplifier is lower than the power capacity of this device. If the output power is higher than the power capacity, malfunction or fire may occur. •Do not input excessively loud signals that may result in clipping in the amplifier or cause the following: –Feedback, when using a microphone –Continuous and extremely loud sound from a musical instrument, etc. –Continuous and extremely loud distorted sound –Noise caused by plugging/unplugging the cable while the amplifier is turned on Even if the output power of the amplifier is lower than the power capacity of this device (program), damage to the device, malfunction or fire may occur. 923 235 45° (Pullback point for CBR15 and CBR12 only) Screw holes (M8) Use these M8 size screw holes for installing separately sold brackets or commercially available eye bolts.

Handling and Maintenance •Do not expose the device to excessive dust or vibration, or extreme cold or heat (such as in direct sunlight, near a heater, or in a car during the day), in order to prevent the possibility of panel disfiguration, unstable operation, or damage to the internal components. •Do not place vinyl, plastic or rubber objects on the device, since this might discolor the panel. •When cleaning the device, use a dry and soft cloth. Do not use paint thinners, solvents, cleaning fluids, or chemical-impregnated wiping cloths. •Condensation can occur in the device due to rapid, drastic changes in ambient temperature—when the device is moved from one location to another, or air conditioning is turned on or off, for example. Using the device while condensation is present can cause damage. If there is reason to believe that condensation might have occurred, leave the device for several hours until the condensation has completely dried out. •When turning on the AC power in your audio system, always turn on the power amplifier LAST, to avoid speaker damage. When turning the power off, the power amplifier should be turned off FIRST for the same reason. •Be sure to observe the power amplifier’s rated load impedance, particularly when connecting speakers in parallel. Connecting an impedance load outside the amplifier’s rated range can damage the power amplifier. •Protective Circuit All full-range loudspeakers are fitted with a self-resetting poly switch that protects the high-frequency driver from damage caused by excessive power. If a loudspeaker cabinet loses high-frequency output, immediately remove power from the power amplifier and wait for two to three minutes. This should be long enough to allow the poly switch to reset. Reapply power and check the performance of the high-frequency driver before continuing, with the power reduced to a level that does not cause the poly switch to interrupt the signal. •Air blowing out of the bass reflex ports is normal, and often occurs when the speaker is handling program material with heavy bass content. Connectors •Use only Neutrik speakON plugs (NL4) for connecting speakON connectors. Connection Wiring More than 45° from a right angle More than 45° More than 45° CAUTION In order to prevent the unit from falling down, attach the safety wire as shown in the illustration. Make sure to wire the plugs as shown below. ❚❚Phone plug ❚❚Neutrik speakON plug (NL4) 2– (unconnected) Troubleshooting 2+ (unconnected) 1+ : 1– : Symptom No sound. Parallel connection of speakers The signals of the phone jack and speakON connector are connected in parallel. The first CBR receives the signal from an amplifier (such as a power amplifier, a powered mixer, etc.) with the phone jack or the speakON connector, and routes the signal to the second CBR. When connecting CBRs in parallel, be sure to check the load impedance the amplifier can drive. The nominal impedance of one CBR is eight ohms and the total impedance of two parallel connected CBRs is four ohms. In this case, the amplifier must be able to drive less than four ohm load impedance. From amplifier Amplifier Only one suspension point Max. 45° The first CBR (Impedance: 8Ω) The second CBR (Impedance: 8Ω) Invalid connection L channel Amplifier The cable is not connected properly. • Connect the cable all the way in so that it is firmly in place. • If the speakON connector is used, connect to “1+” and “1-” and turn the plug to be locked. A microphone is directed toward the Aim the speaker away from the area where the speaker. microphone picks up sound. The sound is amplified too much. Lower the volume of input device and locate the microphone more closely to the sound source. The amplifier shuts down. The total impedance of the speakers is less than the minimum load impedance of the amplifier. Example: More than two speakers (eight ohms) are connected to a power amplifier, the load impedance of which is six ohms. Check the minimum load impedance of the power amplifier, and lower the number of speakers connected in parallel not to be less than the impedance. High frequency range is attenuated. The protection circuit is operating in Refer to “Protection circuit” in the NOTICE. the HF unit. If any specific problem should persist, however, please contact your Yamaha dealer. Parallel connection (total impedance: 4Ω) Do not connect the input from the amplifier to both the phone jack and the speakON connector simultaneously. This creates a dangerous short circuit.
