Speaker Cabinets
Introduction
Performance Series Cabinets
The PS Series cabinets were designed and built with the same commitment to
sonic detail and quality construction as our award winning UL Series speakers.
Tuned for a more "classic" tone than the UL Series, they deliver thick lows with
a musically crisp edge. Only the best conventional materials were used in construction: 17 ply Baltic Birch cabinets, polypropylene capacitors in the crossovers, Neutrik SpeakOn connectors, steel magnet drivers made exclusively for
Epifani in the USA, steel recessed handles and high impact locking corners.
We recommend the use of high quality speaker cables that use Neutrik
SpeakOn connectors when plugging your amp into the cabinet. These connectors provide more contact area and you eliminate the risk of crossing positive to
ground and damaging your amplifier.
Once you’ve connected your cabinet you can adjust the tweeter to driver level
using the tweeter level adjustment knob on the rear panel of the cabinet. Your
PS cabinet should come with the tweeter level at the “12:00” position. This is
simply a starting point. Many players actually prefer to back it off as the tweeters
are extremely efficient.
The Performance Series
The Performance Series were first introduced at the Winter NAMM Show 2006
to critical acclaim. The design goals for the line were to offer uncompromised
sonic quality at an affordable price. Utilizing many of the design elements
found in the UL Series line, the Performance Series maintains its own unique
sound and look. Nick Epifani and his design team employed all types of scientific disciplines in designing the Performance Series products. Working together on the acoustical, mechanical and electrical engineering aspects of the
line, they focused on creating an amplifier solution where the whole is greater
than the sum of the parts. All of the components are carefully selected to meet
strict design and manufacturing specifications. The Performance Series solution is really an integrated audio system whose major components were designed to interact with one another to ensure optimum performance

The rear panel of your Epifani amp has several useful features that, when used
properly, will enhance the overall experience with your amp.
1. Tuner out - Plug an instrument cable between this jack and your digital
tuner. You can use the Mute Switch on the front panel to access the quiet
tuning mode. Tuning quietly makes everyone around you happy and being
in tune will help advance your career!
2. Effect Send/Return - Using shielded instrument cables connect the "Effect
send" to your effect's input. Connect the output of your effect to the UL Amp
Series "Effects Input". Using the Serial/Parallel switch you can choose run
your effects "in line" with the dry signal or "along side" of the dry signal.
Typically a reverb would be run in parallel and a chorus or flanger would be
run in series. To practice along with pre-recorded music you could take the
output of a tape player, CD player or MP3 player and plug it into the effect
return jack.
3. Pre-amp out - Using a shielded instrument type cable this output could be
used to send a signal to a power amp or to send an unbalanced signal to a
recording device.
4. Direct Out - Using a "microphone" cable with XLR connectors you can send
a balanced signal to the house PA or for direct injection into a recording device.
5. Direct Out Level - You can control the volume of the Direct Out jack for the
cleanest possible feed to an external device.
6. Pre/Post switch - By placing the switch in the "pre" position you are essentially sending an unenhanced or "flat" signal out of the Direct Out. In the
"post" position the Direct Out is outputting the EQ settings you have chosen.
Unpacking your unit

Powering Up
Front Panel Features
*Before turning your amplifier on always set the "Master Volume Control" to
the zero position. This will prevent damage to your speakers in the event of a
product failure or faulty input signal.

1. Turn the amplifier on using the power switch located in the upper right
hand corner of the amplifier front panel. In the "on" position the indicator
on the front panel should be illuminated blue. Upon power-up the mute
feature will engage.
2. Turn the volume on your instrument to the loudest position.
3. Next, set the EQ controls (bass, mid, and treble) to zero (twelve o’clock
position) and begin playing aggressively while turning up the Gain control
of the appropriate channel (as indicated by the LED peak indicator light).
When the LED light is green there is still potential to increase the Gain.
When the light turns red your input is too hot and your signal will distort.
For the cleanest sounding results, allow the LED indicator to turn red intermittently (only while playing at the most aggressive levels).
4. Next, turn the Master Volume Control clockwise to the desired listening
volume. Note: make sure the Mute button is not engaged. At this point you
should be hearing your instrument amplified through the system. Congratulations! You're only a few steps away from hearing your instrument's
true, natural character.

1. Remove the AC cable from the package and firmly insert the female end
in the AC receptacle located on the back panel of your amp.
2. With the amplifier in the "OFF POSITION" plug the male end of the AC
cable into the wall outlet.
3. Connect the speaker using either the "Speakon™ or 1/4" phone jacks on
the rear panel. Make sure that you are using an "unshielded" speaker
cable and that the polarity of the cable is correct. Do not use a shielded
instrument cable to connect speakers to an amplifier.
4. *NEVER connect plus or minus to ground – (i.e. we highly recommend
the use of a “Speakon™ to Speakon™” for a better connection. In the
event of a Speakon™ to ¼ inch connection be sure the connection from
the amp to cabinet is made while the amplifier is OFF. Note - (If you've
purchased an Epifani Combo amp the primary speaker connection has
already been made.)
5. Now you can connect your instrument to the amplifier. Make certain that
you are using a "shielded" instrument cable to connect your instrument to
your amplifier. If you are unsure of the type of cables you currently own,
then we advise you take a trip to your local music store and purchase the
appropriate cables.
6. Plug your instrument into the input jack on the front panel and select either the Passive or Active setting depending the output of your bass.
