Thank you very much for choosing Cabasse speakers.
Please read carefully these instructions before setting up your speakers.
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Explanation of graphical
symbols - The lightning flash
with arrowhead symbol,
within an equilateral
triangle, is intended to alert you
to the presence of uninsulated “dangerous voltage” within the
product’s enclosure that may be of sufficient magnitude to
constitute a risk of electric shock to persons.
The exclamation point within an equilateral triangle
is intended to alert you to the presence of important
operating and maintenance (servicing) instructions in the literature accompanying the appliance.
Instructions - Carefully read through all the safety and operating instructions before switching on any device for the first
time.
Keep these instructions in mind - They will be constantly referred to through this manual.
Pay special care to warnings - All the warning labels on
the product or warning notes in the user’s manual must be
followed.
Follow the instructions - Follow carefully all the installation and operation instructions.
Cleaning - Always take off the power cord before cleaning
the device. Do not use cleaning solvent, whether liquid or air
spray. Using a soft damp cloth is recommended.
Accessories - To avoid incidents, only use accessories expressly recommended by Cabasse.
Water and moisture - The product shall not be used in
damp or wet locations, such as humid basements, next to a
bathtub, sink, swimming pool or any other similar conditions.
Carts and Stands - The appliance should be
used only with a cart or stand that is recommended by the manufacturer.
> Portable cart warning
Installation on a piece of furniture and stands - Do
not place this device on an unsteady surface, i.e. a stand, tripod, table, shelf, etc. It may fall and cause serious injury to a
nearby child or adult.
Ventilation outlets - The device shall not be placed in a
position that restrains the operation of its fans. Avoid installing the device on a bed, couch, blanket or other similar
surfaces that may prevent the appropriate air flow. Do not
install the device in a confined space, such as a book shelf or
other piece of furniture, that could prevent sufficient air from
flowing freely.
Power - The device shall only be connected to a source of
power compliant to the one described in this manual or on
relevant printed labels on the product. If you are not sure of
the type of power available, please contact your reseller or the
local power company.
Power cords - The power cords must be laid out in such
a way that they cannot be walked on, pinched, bent under
other devices. Also pay special attention to the matching of
the plugs and the connection of the cord to the device.
Lightning - For better protection against lightning or if the
device must remain unused for long stretches of time, unplug
the power cord and antenna jack. This minimizes potential
damages due to lightning or line surges.
Overloads - Avoid overloading the power plugs, extension
cords or power relays. This could result in fire or electric
shocks.
Foreign bodies and liquids - Avoid letting foreign materials or liquids enter the device. They could cause fire or electric shocks. Never spill any liquid on the device.
Maintenance - Users must never attempt to maintain the
device on their own, except for those maintenance operations
described in this manual. Any task beyond regular user maintenance must be performed by qualified service operators.
Troubleshooting - You must unplug your device from the
power supply and have it checked by a qualified technician if:
The power supply or the plug is damaged.
Foreign bodies or liquid penetrated the device.
The device was exposed to dripping or splashing.
The device does not seem to work correctly under normal
operating conditions. Only operate the controls described in
this manual. Any other operation could damage the device
and require on-site visit of a qualified technician.
The device has fallen or its housing is damaged.
The performances of the device are strongly altered.
Spare parts - If spare parts are needed to repair the device,
make sure that the technician followed the manufacturer’s recommendations or that the replacing parts feature the same
specifications as the original ones. Non-compliant parts can
result in multiple damages, including fire or electric shocks.
Checks - After any servicing of the device, ask the technician
to perform appropriate testing to make sure that the device
works safely.
Exposure to high temperatures - The device should be
kept away from heating sources, such as radiators, heaters,
amplifiers or any other similar item likely to make the operating temperature rise excessively.
Plastic bags - Keep them away from children to prevent any
risk of suffocation.
Applicable for USA, Canada or where approved for usage
Caution ! To prevent electric shock, match wide blade plug to wide
slot, insert fully.

UNPACKING
After opening the top carton flaps, fold the carton flaps right
back and invert the carton contents. Remove the cutting template and the upper foam form, then the grills followed by the
speakers. Keep the grilles away from the work area until you
are ready to fit them. We suggest you to retain the packing for
future use.
Check the contents of Archipel 17ICP and 17ICD:
2 speakers with 1 round and 1 square grille each
1 alignment template
rotation is possible in every direction within an
20° for the 17ICP and 30° for the 17ICD.
Check the contents of Archipel 17ICPS:
1 speakers with 1 round grille and 1 square grille
1 alignment template
Archipel 17ICPS: if necessary, rotates the group of 2 tweeters to optimize the stereophonic soundstage.
SET-UP AND POSITIONING
Check that there is no conflict with other installations
(pipe work, air conditioning, powercabling etc.). In existing
construction, use a stud-finding tool to map the construction
accurately and a pipe detector to scan the proposed installation position. Avoid installing the speakers in the same cavity
as flimsy ducting, which may be induced to rattle. The speakers are designed to operate satisfactorily in a wide range of
cavity volumes, ideally above 15 litres (0.53 cu ft). Placement
near a wall/ceiling junction or in a corner is to be avoided as
it may give rise to too much bass and a boomy quality to the
sound. If possible, keep the speakers more than 0.5 m (20 in)
from the ceiling edges.
Damping the wall cavity
In addition, loosely fill the whole section of the cavity with
wadding. Fibreglass and mineral wool matting supplied for
heat insulation are suitable, but not closed cell foam or expanded polystyrene. Check that there is no debris that may
fall into the speaker (especially in ceiling mount situations).
IMPORTANT: YOU SHOULD CHECK THAT THE MATERIALS YOU USE MEET THE LOCAL FIRE AND BUILDING
REGULATIONS.
To get the best possible results, we advise you to use the appropriate optional item, either the Cabasse backbox
for
Archipel 17, or the kit for drywall mounting .

Ensure that they have located properly and tighten the

to take up unevenness in the mounting surface, but do not
over tighten the screws as excessive distortion of the frame
may occur.

ATTENTION: TURN OFF ALL THE AMPLIFIERS BEFORE
INTERCONNECTING THEM TO THE LOUDSPEAKERS. IN
ORDER TO CONNECT LOUDSPEAKERS PROPERLY, IT IS
MOST IMPORTANT TO KEEP IN MIND THE FOLLOWING
TWO FACTORS: CABLE SECTION AND PHASE.
CONNECTION
Cable section
To get the full sonic potential of Cabasse loudspeakers and
avoid power losses, the cables connecting the speakers to the
power amplifier must have the lowest possible electrical resistance. To help you in choosing the correct cable gauge, follow
diagram.
Phase
Amplifier and speaker manufacturers typically indicate
connection polarity in one of two ways: red and black or
plus and minus. In either
