1. SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
• Be sure to read the instructions in this section carefully before use.
• Make sure to observe the instructions in this manual as the conventions of safety symbols and messages
regarded as very important precautions are included.
• We also recommend you keep this instruction manual handy for future reference.
Safety Symbol and Message Conventions
Safety symbols and messages described below are used in this manual to prevent bodily injury and property
damage which could result from mishandling. Before operating your product, read this manual first and
understand the safety symbols and messages so you are thoroughly aware of the potential safety hazards.
WARNING
Indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if mishandled, could
result in death or serious personal injury.
CAUTION
Indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if mishandled, could
result in moderate or minor personal injury, and/or property damage.
WARNING
When Installing the Unit
• Install the unit only in a location that can structurally support the weight of the unit and the mounting bracket.
Doing otherwise may result in the unit falling down and causing personal injury and/or property damage.
• Use nuts and bolts that are appropriate for the ceiling's or wall's structure and composition. Failure to do so
may cause the speaker to fall, resulting in material damage and possible personal injury.
• Tighten each nut and bolt securely. Ensure that the bracket has no loose joints after installation to prevent
accidents that could result in personal injury.
When the Unit is in Use
• Should the following irregularity be found during use, immediately switch off the power, disconnect the power
supply plug from the AC outlet and contact your nearest TOA dealer. Make no further attempt to operate the
unit in this condition as this may cause fire or electric shock.
· If you detect smoke or a strange smell coming from the unit.
· If water or any metallic object gets into the unit
· If it is malfunctioning (no tone sounds.)
CAUTION
When the Unit is in Use
• Do not operate the unit for an extended period of time with the sound distorting. This is an indication of a
malfunction, which in turn can cause heat to generate and result in a fire.

2. GENERAL DESCRIPTION
The TOA HB-1 is a high-power, wall/ceiling-mounted sub-woofer system employing a 20 cm speaker unit.
Although small in size, the HB-1 provides clear super-low frequency sound reproduction thanks to its Acoustic
Super Woofer enclosure construction.
3. FEATURES
• A large, 110 mm-diameter ferrite magnet, a long, 35 mm-diameter voice coil, an aluminum bobbin, and a
rubber roll edge combine to permit large voice coil movement at high power input.
• The Acoustic Super Woofer system enclosure creates an acoustic band-pass filter that reproduces superlow frequencies down to 45 Hz and realizes slow-slope phase characteristics.
• The enclosure is 103 mm in depth from the mounting surface, and suitable for mounting in a wall with twoby-four construction.
• Rotating lock tabs permit the speaker to be temporarily fixed during installation. Also, the speaker has
provisions for wire or bolt suspension.
• The speaker can be converted to high-impedance applications with the addition of the optional MT-S0601
matching transformer.
4. HANDLING PRECAUTIONS
No anti-magnetic provisions have been made for the HB-1 speaker. Therefore, take care to keep the unit
sufficiently away from televisions, monitors or computer-related equipment.

8. CROSSOVER CONNECTIONS WITH A FULL-RANGE SPEAKER
8.1. Recommended Filters for the HB-1
• Because the HB-1's enclosure construction is designed to create an acoustic band-pass filter, the mid and
high frequency audio ranges are cut even if the input signal band is not limited with a low-pass filter.
Therefore, the HB-1 functions as a sub-woofer with no filtering.

• The speaker driving efficiency can be increased by inserting a low-pass filter before the power amplifier to
cut the mid and high frequency components of the input signal to the sub-woofer.
• The following filter settings are recommended
when using a digital signal processor for the
HB-1's signal system:

8.2. Level Balance and Polarity
When using the HB-1 in combination with TOA's F or H series Full-Range Speakers, adjust their level balance
or polarity depending on the conditions of the installation location.
8.2.1. Level balance adjustment
Adjust the level of the sub-woofer or full range speaker depending on the number of units to be installed or
installation conditions.
8.2.2. Polarity adjustment
• Acoustic energy increases at the crossover band for the sub-woofer and full-range speaker if the two
speaker are in phase with each other, and decreases if out of phase. Because the phase characteristics of
both the sub-woofer and the full-range speaker vary continuously depending on frequency, simply matching
the connector polarities of the sub-woofer is not always the best procedure.
• To confirm how much the acoustic energy increases or decreases, reverse the polarity of the sub-woofer's
"+" and "–" connectors and select the connection polarity that results in the largest output of acoustic energy.
(The use of a real-time spectrum analyzer to check the degree of energy increase is highly recommended.)

9. CAUTIONS CONCERNING HIGH-IMPEDANCE APPLICATIONS
To avoid damaging the HB-1 speaker in high-impedance applications (with the MT-S0601 matching
transformer installed), be sure to observe the following conditions:
1. Do not limit the input signal band using such devices as a low-pass filter, but instead drive the speaker with
the full-range signal.
2. Use a high-impedance amplifier with a power rating higher than the wattage tap selected on the matching
transformer.
Note
There is a low-frequency threshold for both the speaker matching transformer and the high-impedance
amplifier output transformer.
[Matching transformer low-frequency threshold]
If a signal with frequencies lower than the low-frequency threshold is applied at rated power, the transformer's
primary impedance (input impedance) decreases abruptly due to core magnetic saturation. With the MTS0601, the impedance begins to decrease at approximately 40 Hz for the rated input power of 60 W, and is
almost halved at 30 Hz. If the speaker is used under this condition, an increased load is put on the power
amplifier as well as the matching transformer, causing potential equipment damage.
The low-frequency threshold varies depending on the selected transformer tap, and the smaller the tapselected wattage, the lower the threshold.
[High-impedance amplifier low-frequency threshold]
When a full-range signal (not band-limited) is applied, the amplifier is not adversely affected. However, if the
signal is band-limited with a low-pass filter and driven with rated power, an increased load is put on the output
stage, causing potential amplifier damage.
