INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
HORN SPEAKER WITH AMPLIFIER
Use this product according to this instruction manual. Please keep this instruction manual for future reference.
MODEL NUMBERS:
SA-H5-B 8" HORN SPEAKER W/5 WATT AMPLIFIER
SA-H15-B 8" HORN SPEAKER W/15 WATT AMPLIFIER
GENERAL:
Horn speakers with built-in amplifiers are used for one-way voice paging, background music, and tone alerting in large indoor and
outdoor and/or noisy locations. Model SA-H5-B has a built-in 5 watt amplifier, and model SA-H15-B has a built-in 15 watt
amplifier. Both models have a built-in volume control. The horn speakers with built-in amplifier are used in the following manner.
Figure 1 shows a zone paging application used with Wheelock's Zone Page Control Module. The horn speaker can also be used to
provide single-zone paging when connected directly to an unused Central Office (C.O.) line port, which can be programmed to
function as a 600 Ohm Audio Page Port (i.e., does not require Talk Battery). See Figure 2.
NOTE: All CAUTIONS and WARNINGS are identified by the symbol
. All warnings are printed in bold capital letters.
WARNING: READ THESE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY. FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH ANY OF THE
FOLLOWING INSTRUCTIONS, CAUTIONS AND WARNINGS COULD RESULT IN IMPROPER APPLICATION,
INSTALLATION AND/OR OPERATION OF THESE PRODUCTS IN AN EMERGENCY SITUATION, WHICH COULD
RESULT IN PROPERTY DAMAGE, SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH TO YOU AND/OR OTHERS.

See notes 1 and 2 below.
*NOTES:
1.
Some telephone systems require that the C.O. trunk port (loop start) or C.O. line port be equipped with a trunk card, page card or
other equipment. Consult the telephone manufacturer's system manual for equipment or programming required.
2. If unused C.O. port requires talk battery to pass audio (most do) then a Wheelock Zone Control is required as an interface for
zoned paging systems. For single-zone paging a Wheelock PRM-150 Preamplifier with an RPS-2406 power supply is required as
an interface.
Figure 3 shows a horn speaker w/amplifier connected to a tone generator for telephone alerting or night ringing, with paging.

2. The horn speaker w/amplifier can be used to amplify the tone of a telephone as shown in Figure 5. It can also be used to expand
the capability of 25 or 70 volt paging systems. Up to 125 horn speakers w/amplifiers may be connected to each transformer using
the 1/4W tap.

(A) 8 Ohm, Amplified (1-3 Watts) page port: Maximum capacity is 125 horn speakers w/amplifiers.
(B) 600 Ohm, low power page port: Maximum capacity is 10 horn speakers w/amplifiers (See System Capacity below). If a PRM150 preamplifier is used, then maximum capacity is 150 horn speakers w/amplifiers.
SYSTEM CAPACITY:
For applications with a typical 600 Ohm source impedance such as a telephone system audio page port, a maximum of 10 Horn
Speakers may be used. Additional Horn Speakers (up to 150 maximum) will require the PRM-150 Preamplifier for correct level and
impedance matching.

INSTALLATION INFORMATION:
Horn speakers should be used in large and/or noisy locations. They are weatherproof and may be used indoors or outdoors. The horn
speaker has a built-in amplifier. It's volume controls should be set to provide horn sound pressure level (SPL) of at least 6 to 10dB for
paging, and 3 to 6dB for background music. However, the horn speaker's volume should not be set so high as to cause discomfort to
those closest to the horn. These devices should not be operated at volume levels loud enough to cause audible distortion. Operation
in this manner may result in damage to the unit. In some cases, use of multiple horns set at lower volume provide better sound
coverage, than one horn set at full volume. Horns should be mounted at least 15 feet above the floor, and angled downward.
See Tables 1 & 2 and Figures 8 & 9 as a guide to determine horn spacing, area coverage, and sound pressure level.
Although designed for continuous operation, the use of continuous tone signals at high volume is not recommended. While short tone
bursts should cause no problem, sustained operation in this mode may result in failure of the unit.

MOUNTING INFORMATION:
The SA-H5-B and SA-H15-B may be wall mounted by simply using the holes in the swivel base to locate and drill mounting holes.
For ease of mounting, the swivel base may be removed from the horn body. Then mount the base to the surface with appropriate
hardware. Slots are also provided in the base for banding straps, to allow mounting to beams, poles, and girders. The mounting base
is also fully adjustable in both the vertical and horizontal planes. See Figure 10.
CAUTION: These devices are not intended for use in hazardous locations as defined by the National Electrical Code (NEC) and
by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).
Mounting Base
Figure 10.
NOTE:
Loosening the wing nut will allow for both pitch and rotation of the unit.
CAUTION:
When adjusting horn position, be careful not to lose adjusting hardware.
An interface adapter (mounted to the horn) permits weatherproof connection. The interface adapter is threaded for standard 1/2" pipe,
and will accommodate BX cable, flexible or rigid conduit and matching connectors. If the interface adapter is not suitable for your
installation, then replace it with the clear plastic shield and 2 short mounting screws packed separately.

Possible Cause And Correction
Is the volume control turned up (clockwise).
Check presence and polarity of -24VDC and GND at the speaker.
Check audio level on T & R at speaker, and if necessary also at the audio
source.
Check that volume control is turned up.
Check for the sufficient audio level on T & R at the speaker.
Be sure at least 21.6VDC is present at the speaker during operation.
Lower volume setting of speaker.
Move the phone farther from the speaker.
Install confidencer in phone if necessary.
CAUTION: Excessive bass energy can damage horn voice coils, especially at high power levels. To avoid possible damage, an
amplifier with a bass roll-off filter (horn protect circuit) should be used.
CAUTION: Always operate audio amplifiers and speakers within their specified ratings. Excessive input may distort sound
quality and may damage audio equipment. Do not exceed +130% of speaker input voltage. Improper input voltage can damage
speaker. If distortion is heard, check for clipping of the audio appliance with an oscilloscope and reduce the amplifier input level or
gain level to eliminate any clipping.
CAUTION: Check the installation instructions of the manufacturers of other equipment used in the system for any guidelines or
restrictions on wiring and/or locating Notification Appliance Circuits (NAC) and notification appliances. Some system
communication circuits and/or audio circuits, for example, may require special precautions to assure electrical noise immunity (e.g.
audio crosstalk).
