PPA-210 Mounting
Pole Mounting – The PPA-210 also include a pole mount option. The pole mount socket located
on the bottom of the speaker may be used to secure the speaker to a speaker tri-pod, such as the
American Audio® SPS-1B or the SPS-2B. Always be sure to follow the guidelines listed below when
pole mounting your speaker;
• Always be sure the stand is designed to support the weight of the speaker
• In outdoor situations that are prone to windy conditions and strong wind gust, be sure to use sandbags as additional tri-pod support, this will greatly reduce the risk of tipping
• Do not stack speakers on top of each other when mounting on a tri-pod. Only one speaker should be mounted to a tri-pod at one time.
• Always position the tri-pod legs away from foot traffic
• Extend the tri-pod legs to their fully extended position to avoid accidental tipping
• Observe and follow all safety guidelines and regulations specified by the tri-pod’s manufac- turer
• Be sure the tri-pod is situated on a flat, level, and stable surface
• Always tighten all tri-pod locks
