USE
Preliminary
This product should only be used in E1, E2, E3
or E4(*) environments, in accordance with standard
EN55103-2 (Electromagnetic compatibility. Product
family standard for audio, video, audio-visual and
entertainment lighting control apparatus for
professional use. Part 2: Immunity.)
Do not cover the amplifier's radiator nor
obstruct its ventilation.
For consumption reasons, it is important not to
connect the equipment to the same line as the
lighting systems, thus avoiding interruptions or
sudden drops in lighting intensity.
ON / OFF
A sound system should be switched on
sequentially. Switch on the self-powered units last
in your sound system (switch on the subwoofer
before the mid-high system). Switch on the sound
sources such as CD players or turntables, then the
mixer, then the processors, and finally the selfpowered unit. If you have several units, it is
recommended that you switch them on
sequentially one at a time.
Follow the inverse order when switching off,
turning self-powered units off before any other
element in the sound system.
Disconnect the device by removing the mains
connector from the mains socket. The mains
connector and mains socket must always be freely
accessible and never covered or blocked in any
way. The mains cable can be detached from the
device by disconnecting the standard IEC-60320
connector (except avant 118A). Always disconnect
the device by removing the mains connector from
the mains socket before detaching the mains cable
at the standard IEC-60320 connector (except
avant 118A).
The avant 118A uses a power cable equipped
with a Neutrik PowerCon NC3FCA connector.
Power can be daisy chained via the NC3FCB
output connector (see details on product label).
Overheating
This equipment does not normally overheat
during normal conditions of use. When overheating
occurs, the unit protects itself. You should then
find out why and if necessary contact an
authorised dealer for technical assistance.
Normally it is enough just to let the unit cool
down after you have corrected the problem so that
the system functions properly again.
Equalisation
The unit does not need extreme settings of
equalisation to produce quality sound. Avoid high
levels of gain on the equalisers. Gain values above
+3 dB on a console’s EQ are not recommended.
Low mains voltage
If mains voltage falls below the shutdown
voltage for the unit, it will stop playing. When
acceptable levels are regained, the unit will switch
back on automatically.
The power supply allows the system to
function using two voltage ranges: from 90V to
128V, for 115V AC version, and from 180V to
256V, for 230V AC version.
Therefore the current consumed by the first
range (90 to 128V) is double the second to
achieve the same acoustic power level.

Overload indicator
This device has an indicator (LIMIT LED) that
lights when the signal is excessive.
The indicator should not be lit continuously.
This distorts the signal (quickly fatiguing your ears)
and may damage the speakers. Therefore, it is
recommended that you never work with this LED
on; at most it should blink only occasionally.

Manual del Usuario / serie avant / User’s Manual
RIGGING
The goal is to the allow the user to become
familiar with the mechanical elements required to
fly the acoustic system, as well as the safety
measures to be taken during set-up and teardown.
Only experienced installers with adequate
knowledge of the equipment and local safety
regulations should fly speaker boxes. It is the
user's responsibility to ensure that the systems to
be flown (including flying accessories) comply with
state and local regulations.
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 risk.
To access the two rigging points on the top
side of the enclosure, remove the rubber caps and
the allen-head screw beneath it. Also remove the
allen-head screw on the backside of the enclosure
to free a rigging point. Fix a M10 eyebolt in each
point. Note that 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-5 set is an optional set of three M10
eyebolts and three carabiners.
Each ANL-5 eyebolt has a rated working load
of 200 kg. (440 lb). Each ANL-5 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-5 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.

2 – Check that the cable from the
sound source to the UNIT is
connected correctly. Replace the
cable if defective.
3 - Allow the unit to cool down for
some minutes and it will function
again. Check the main output level
of the mixer or channel gains since
the unit will have been functioning
with excessive levels.
2.– Connect the mixer and the unit
to the same mains outlet.
3.– Use a cable that is as short as
possible and/or move the audio
signal cable away from mains
cables.
1.– Move the audio signal cable
away from lighting cables. Try to find
out at what point the noise is leaking
into the system.

APPENDIX: Line connections: unbalanced and balanced
There are two basic ways to transport an audio signal with microphone or line level:
Unbalanced line: Utilising a two conductor cable, it transports the signal as the voltage between them.
Electromagnetic interference can get added to the signal as undesired noise. Connectors that carry
unbalanced signals have two pins, such as RCA (Phono) and ¼” (6.35mm, often referred to as jack) mono. 3
pin connector such as XLR (Cannon) may also carry unbalanced signals if one of the pins is unused.
Balanced line: Utilising a three conductor cable, one of them acts as a shield against electromagnetic
noise and is the ground conductor. The other two have the same voltage with respect to the ground
conductor but with opposite signs. The noise that cannot be rejected by the shield affects both signal
conductors in the same way. At the device’s input the two signals get summed with opposite sign, so that
noise is cancelled out while the programme signal doubles in level. Most professional audio devices use
balanced inputs and outputs. Connectors that can carry balanced signal have three pins, such as XLR
(Cannon) and ¼” (6.35mm) stereo.
The graphs that follow show the recommended connection with different types of connectors to balanced
processor or amplifier inputs. The connectors on the left-hand side come from a signal source, and the ones
on the right hand side go to the inputs of the processor or amplifier. Note that on the unbalanced connectors
on the left-hand side, two terminals are joined inside the connector. If hum occurs with balanced to balanced
connections, try disconnecting the sleeve (ground) on the input connector. Note that the illustrations show
what should be connected to what, but that pin locations on an actual XLR connector are different. Also, pin
2 hot is assumed on XLR connectors.
