INSTALLATION
Connectors
The D.A.S. SF series is designed to facilitate the connection for installations, so it has been provided with
two types of connectors: the NL4 type (NL8 in SF-158) is standard for professional audio equipment. These
terminals are connected in parallel, so that we can carry the amplified audio signal up to a device and we can
forward it to the next box, very easily. The polarity of the connectors and other important information for
proper connection is indicated on the labels.

When we install the equipment horizontally, it is advisable to rotate the horn to maintain coverage ranges.
In the SF-10 model, the horn can be rotated: remove the grille, unscrew the horn and turn it 90º, screw the
horn and grille back in place. The model SF-158 has been equipped with a modular set of two horns that can
be rotated at the same time, as shown in the following figures:

Product improvement by means of research and development is on going at D.A.S. Specifications are
subject to change without notice.
To this date, there is no international standard regarding the flying of acoustic systems. However, it is
common practice to apply 5:1 safety factors for enclosures and static elements.
For slings and elements exposed to material fatigue due to friction and load variation the following ratios
must be met; 5:1 for steel cable slings, 4:1 for steel chain slings and 7:1 polyester slings.
Thus, an element with a breaking load limit of 1000 kg may be statically loaded with 200 kg (5:1 safety
factor) and dynamically loaded with 142 Kg (7:1 safety factor).
The load capacity, of each lift motor, should be correspond to a safety factor of 10:1.
When flying a system, the working load must be lower than the resistance of each individual flying point in
the enclosure, as well as each box.
Hanging hardware should be regularly inspected and suspect units replaced if in doubt.
This is important to avoid injury and absolutely no risks should be taken in this respect. It is highly
recommended that you implement an inspection and maintenance program on flying elements, including
reports to be filled out by the personnel that will carry out the inspections.
Local regulations may exist that, in case of accident, may require you to present evidence of inspection
reports and corrective actions after defects were found.
Absolutely no risks should be taken with regards to public safety.
When flying enclosures from ceiling support structures, extreme care should be taken to assure the load
bearing capabilities of the structures so that the installation is absolutely safe.
Do not fly enclosures from unsafe structures.
Consult a certified professional if needed.
All flying accessories that are not supplied by D.A.S. Audio are the user's responsibility. Use at your own

To hang the units, the Allen-head screws must be removed and replaced by M10 eyebolts on one side of
the enclosure. Each rigging point has 200 kg (440 lb) working load limit.
Then choose the slings or chains of required load resistance and length, bearing in mind that the length
difference between the front and back slings or chains will determine the vertical orientation. Alternatively, the
back bottom eyebolt points can be used to provide vertical orientation.
The ANL-2 set is an optional set of four eyebolts and four carabiners. (Dimensions are in milimetres).
Each ANL-2 eyebolt has a rated working load of 200 kg. (440 lb). Each ANL-2 carabiner has a working
load of 330 kg (726 lb). If using other hardware, make sure it is rated to handle the required load.
When using eyebolts it is important to bear in mind that the rated working load is only true for a load
applied in the plane of the eye, and is significantly reduced for other angles. The drawing illustrates the
concept.
The table shows the variation of the working load as a function of the load angle. In the case of the ANL-2
eyebolt, this means that the 200 kg working load becomes 60 kg at 45 degrees. Do not use eyebolt flying if
the load angle is higher than 45 degrees.
Note: As always, when we handle heavy loads, we should wear appropriate clothing and
protective elements such as gloves, safety shoes, etc.

Stacked Systems
However, the most common will be the stacking systems. Below is an example (2x SF-158 upon 2x
SF-221), step by step.
First, we will stack 2x SF-221 as shown below, joining the boxes with 4x AX-SF2.

Now, we will screw the AX-SF2158 over them.
Next, we will screw 2x SF-158 to the AX-SF2158.

Finally, we will join the SF-158 units with 2x AX-SF2.
As can be seen, the result is a solid stacked system.

ANNEX : Table for cable selection
This table shows the power loss in % and dB, for different cable lengths and sections shown. It is
recommended that the losses do not exceed 30% in any case (around 3dB). Although it is recommended
minimizing losses, the maximum acceptable losses are usually around 15% (approximately 1.4dB).
