2. GENERAL DESCRIPTION
The ER-1203 is a 3 W splash-proof megaphone and the ER-1206 series is a 6 W megaphone.
Both feature IPX5 water-jet-resistant designs.
The ER-1206S offers a siren switch, and the ER-1206W is equipped with a whistle switch.
The use of the supplied battery spacer permits the ER-1206 series to be operated on four AA batteries instead
of six batteries normally required.
Handle and mouthpiece with anti-bacteria treatment improve hygiene and safety during use.
3. HANDLING PRECAUTIONS
• The ER-1203/1206/1206S/1206W megaphones are waterproof to IPX5 standard that permits the use of
megaphones in an environment where rain or water may be splashed. Never use them in water or in heavy
rain, nor souse water over them as doing so may cause unit failure.
• Immediately contact your TOA dealer if the following irregularities should occur. To avoid unit failure, make
no further attempt to use the unit in these conditions.
· Smoke coming from the unit or a strange smell detected.
· Water or other foreign objects get inside the unit.
· No sound heard (after checking to be sure that the batteries are loaded in correct orientation, and
satisfactorily charged).
• Avoid storing the unit in humid or dusty locations, in locations exposed to direct sunlight, near heaters, or
exposed to sooty smoke, as these conditions may result in unit failure.
• When batteries are left installed in the megaphone for extended periods of time, be sure to check them
periodically for charge and leakage.
• Do not use the unit for extended periods of time with a distorted sound output. This could cause the inner
parts to become hot and possibly result in unit failure.
• Noise may be produced when a mobile phone is used near the unit. However, this is not a failure. Use the
mobile phone as far as possible from the unit.
• Use a tightly wrung-out damp cloth to clean the unit. If the unit becomes extremely dirty, use a cloth
moistened in a neutral detergent and tightly wrung-out. Never use volatile liquids such as benzene, thinner,
or alcohol to clean the unit, as these may deform or discolor its case.

3. Battery Cover
The battery compartment is built inside. Use care
when opening and closing the battery cover.
4. Mouthpiece
Speak into the mouthpiece at a distance of about
1 cm. Anti-bacteria treated, the mouthpiece helps
make such close contact during use hygienic and
safe.
7. Handle
The handle with anti-bacteria treatment improve
hygiene and safety during use.
8. Strap
Use this strap to carry the unit.
(Length: approx. 60 cm)
9. Battery case
Houses AA batteries of 4 pieces for the ER-1203
or 6 pieces (4 pieces when the battery spacer is
used) for the ER-1206 series.
Note: The battery spacer is installed in the
handle (7) by the factory.
5. REPLACING THE BATTERIES
Note
If the megaphone is at all wet, be sure to dry it
thoroughly before opening the battery cover to
replace the batteries.
Step 1. Open the battery cover to remove the
battery case from the handle.
To release the battery cover lock, press the
lock tab in the direction indicated by the
arrow.

Step 4. Replace the battery case in the handle and
close the battery cover.
Take care about the correct orientation of
the battery case. To close the battery cover,
push the battery cover and slide the lock tab
in the direction of the arrow.

Step 2. Open the battery case cover, then insert AA
batteries.
To open the cover, unlock the battery case's
lock knob.
Four batteries are required for the ER-1203,
and six batteries for the ER-1206 series.
Battery orientation is not the same for
all batteries.
Insert the batteries as shown below
noting correct polarity (positive and
negative orientation).
5.1. Using the battery spacer (ER-1206 series only)
The ER-1206 series can operate on four AA
batteries instead of 6 batteries with the additional
use of the supplied battery spacer.
Insert the battery spacer into the battery chamber
inside the case as shown below, then insert the four
batteries into the remaining two chambers according
to the battery polarity diagram attached to the case.
Insert the battery case
with this slot faced inside.

Note: Battery life when operated on 4 batteries is
shorter than when operated on 6 batteries.
The volume when operated on 4 batteries is
also lower than when operated on 6 batteries.
Therefore, adjust the volume to an appropriate
output with the volume control.
CAUTION

When changing 4-battery operation to 6-battery
operation, use all new batteries.
Using both new and old batteries together may
cause leakage or explosion of the battery,
resulting in a fire or personal injury.
6. HOW TO USE
7. USING THE HANDLE CAP
CAUTION
• Before pressing the talk switch, fully turn down
the volume.
• Point the megaphone toward the ground when
conducting operational tests.
Step 1. Using the volume control, adjust the volume
to an appropriate level that does not
generate feedback when holding down the
talk switch.
Howling is more likely to occur when using
the megaphone indoors and other spaces
with significant echo. Particularly when the
batteries are new, it may be impossible to
adjust the volume to maximum without
causing howling. In such cases, set the
volume to about mid-level.
Step 2. Speak into the mouthpiece at a distance of
about 1 cm.
Notes
• Speaking too far from the mouthpiece or in
too soft voice may result in insufficient
volume.
• Moisture droplets collecting in the hole on
the mouthpiece may cause noticeably
insufficient volume. Wipe the droplets away
with a cloth or other material and allow the
area to dry sufficiently before resuming
use.
There is no problem in general use. But if high
impact is applied to the battery cover, it may open,
causing the battery case to drop.
When moving around hard with the megaphone in
hand, be sure to install the supplied handle cap as
shown below.
