are specifically designed for using in hi-quality performance site and the precise
sound commercial place. It includes three small and compact stage monitor
models (MS8MA, MS10MA, MS12MA) This series uses trapezium configuration
which greatly decreases the resonance of the standing wave in the cabinet.
These cabinets uses hi-density matrix spray-paint technics and the bottom
bracket design which make mounting quickly and flexibly. HF compression driver
and vented LF for fully professional performance.
The MS powered monitor speaker cabinets include some exclusive innovations
such as switch mode power supply and digital power circuitry (in selected modes)

Make all initial connections with all the equipment powered off, and ensure that
all the main volume controls are turned down completely.
1). Connect one side of the signal cable at your mixer into the Main Output Left
/Right (with 1/4"Jack or XLR) and the other side of the cable in to the Line
Input (COMBO) of your MS monitor speaker cabinet (with1/4"Jack or XLR).
2). Connect the power cord to mains.
3). Turn ON your mixer first, then the MS cabinets.
4). Turn up the volume control of the MS cabinets.
5). Use PFL function to get the proper input level for the mixer, and adjust the
Main Mix Level control to reach the desired output level.
6). After use, turn off your active speaker cabinets first, then the mixer.

4. PANEL DESCRIPTION
HT
1. FLAT: This is the "default" MODEL. The frequency response is typical of floor
monitor. This Model suits all the applications where reproduction of the
whole audio content is required.
2. VOCAL 1: This Model is similar to FLAT model but includes a High-pass Filter
to cut out the selected low frequencies. It is advisable to use this
preset for human voice reproduction. Especially male voice. Also very
good for speech.
3. VOCAL 2: It is similar to VOCAL 1, but we have added a Low-pass Filter to
remove the selected high-frequencies. In this way, all the acoustic
content is dedicated to the Middle frequencies to get the best possible
reproduction of the human voice for stage monitor applications.
4. GUITAR 1: This Model has been optimized for electric guitar monitoring. But
it can also be used directly connected to a Guitar Preamplifier making
use of digital effects, modelling, ect, both in MONO and in STEREO
systems.
5. GUITAR 2: This model is great for Acoustic Guitar. The booming frequencies
of the hollow body guitar are taken away while a gentle crispy touch is
added to compensate lack of high frequencies reproduction from the
pick up. Try it with your Acoustic guitar directly connected to the Input
and you will not need a dedicate amplifier anymore.
6. PIANO: This model has been created for effective monitor of acoustic piano
but it is also suitable for other keyboards such as Rhodes, the Wurlitzer
and it is also good with Hammond style sounds.
7. DRUMFILL+ SUB: In this case we have provided this model with a sharp
high-pass filter so that your MS monitor can be used together with a
subwoofer in DRUMFILL systems.
8. TWIN: In this Model we have created a low-cut and high-frequencies enhance
-ment with the goal of optimizing the frequency response of the MS
Monitor when more than one unit are used together.
9. STAGE: Very often Stage Monitors are positioned on suspended floor made
of wood or metal. This Model prevent the nasty resonance on low
frequency produced by such positioning.
10. BOOM: This model must be used when the monitor is positioned on a
microphone Boom for near-field monitoring.
11. SIDEFILL: To be used with MS Monitor in sidefill position.
12. ANTIFEEDBACK: With this Model the frequencies that are responsible for
feedback are reduced sharply.
13. LOUDNESS: It generates the typical "happy face" curve. To be used with
prolonged listening at low SPL.

4. PANEL DESCRIPTION
HT
14. FULL RANGE + SUB: Made to reduce distortion and moving coil overheating
to reduce power compression when the cabinet is used in conjunction
with a subwoofer.
15. ENTERTAINER: This Model has been thought for Piano Bar Players and
Entertaining Musicians using digital keyboard and microphones together
with karaoke and MP3 devices. You get a crispy sound on the high
frequencies and a gentle peak on low frequencies so that you do not need
a lot of external equalization.
16. ROCK & ROLL: Made for maximum dynamic range without compromising
amplifier headroom and speaker power handling.
