Safety precautions
Information regarding use of loudspeakers
WARNING!
Never stand in the immediate vicinity of loudspeakers driven at a high
level. Professional loudspeaker systems are capable of causing a sound
pressure level detrimental to human health. Seemingly non-critical
sound levels (from approx. 95 dB SPL) can cause hearing damage if
people are exposed to it over a long period.
In order to prevent accidents when deploying loudspeakers on the
ground or when flown, please take note of the following:
When setting up the loudspeakers or loudspeaker stands, make sure
they are standing on a firm surface. If you place several systems on top
of one another, use straps to secure them against movement.
Only use accessories which have been tested and approved by d&b for
assembly and mobile deployment. Pay attention to the correct
application and maximum load capacity of the accessories as detailed in
our specific "Mounting instructions" or in our "Flying system and rigging
manuals".
Ensure that all additional hardware, fixings and fasteners used for
installation or mobile deployment are of an appropriate size and load
safety factor. Pay attention to the manufacturers' instructions and to the
relevant safety guidelines.
Regularly check the loudspeaker housings and accessories for visible
signs of wear and tear and replace them when necessary.
Regularly check all load bearing bolts in the mounting devices.
CAUTION!
Ci-SUB Manual
Loudspeakers produce a static magnetic field even if they are not
connected or are not in use. Therefore make sure when erecting and
transporting loudspeakers that they are nowhere near equipment and
objects which may be impaired or damaged by an external magnetic
field. Generally speaking, a distance of 0.5 m (1.5 ft) from magnetic
data carriers (floppy disks, audio and video tapes, bank cards, etc.) is
sufficient; a distance of more than 1 m (3 ft) may be necessary with
computer and video monitors.

Ci-SUB
The Ci-SUB is the dedicated subwoofer for the Ci-Series loudspeakers
for flown array situations. The Ci-SUB employs a single 18“ driver. The
compact bass-reflex design extends the low frequency response down
to 44 Hz.
The Ci-SUB cabinet is constructed from marine plywood and has an
impact resistant paint finish. The front of the loudspeaker cabinet is
protected by a rigid metal grill, covered with an acoustically transparent
foam. Four M12 and four M16 threaded inserts are provided for
attaching installation hardware.

NOTICE:
NOTICE:
Only operate Ci-SUB loudspeakers with a correctly configured d&b
amplifier, otherwise there is a risk of damaging the loudspeaker
components.
Weather resistant (WR) option
The WR option enables operation of loudspeakers in changing ambient
conditions, however it is not intended to enable permanent, unprotected
operation of loudspeakers outdoors.
- Provide an additional cover over the loudspeakers.
- Aim the cabinets either horizontally or with a downward tilt.

Connections
Ci-SUB cabinets are fitted with a single NL4 connector and are driven
using pins 2+/2–.
Installation loudspeakers with the weather resistant option are supplied
with a fixed cable (PG).
Cable type:
H-07-RN-F 2 x 2.5 mm2/AWG 13
Standard length: 5.5 m (18 ft)

Connecting D12 EP5 outputs to installed loudspeaker
cabinets (SenseDrive)
To apply SenseDrive for the subwoofer D12 amplifiers with EP5
connectors have to be used.
When the D12 is operated in "Mix TOP/SUB mode" the SenseDrive
function is available on the output B connector only.

In permanent installations SenseDrive can also be applied to cabinets
with NL4 connectors or fixed cable option (PG). The connection of the
negative signal wire (EP5 pin 4 of respective D12 output) to the
SenseDrive wire (EP5 pin 5 of respective D12 output) is made in a
junction box close to the loudspeaker cabinet. For an uncompromising
SenseDrive performance the connection should be done not more than
3 m (10 ft) away from the loudspeaker.
Operation with D6 or D12
Select the controller setup C7-SUB.
Within the D12 amplifier this is available in "Dual Channel" and "Mix
TOP/SUB" mode.
Up to a total of two Ci-SUB loudspeakers can be driven by each D6 or
D12 amplifier channel.
In applications with low continuous levels and low ambient temperatures
up to three cabinets can be connected to a D12 channel.
Controller settings
For acoustic adjustment the 100 Hz function can be selected.
100 Hz
If the 100 Hz function is selected, the upper operating frequency of the
system is reduced from 140 Hz to 100 Hz. This setting allows the
Ci-SUB to supplement TOP cabinets in full range mode (i.e. CUT not
selected).
The 100 Hz mode may also be used with TOP cabinets in CUT mode to
compensate for room resonances often found in the 125 Hz band.
Operation with E-PAC (version 3 with display only)
Selecting C7-SUB mode enables the E-PAC to drive one Ci-SUB
loudspeaker.
The 100 Hz setting is available. The characteristics of the 100 Hz setting
are explained in the previous section "Operation with D6 or D12 Controller settings".

Operation with P1200A
Up to two Ci-SUB cabinets can be driven by each P1200A power
amplifier channel fitted with a C7-SUB controller module. Fitting one
C7-SUB and one TOP controller module allows a single mainframe to
drive two Ci-SUB and two mid/high cabinets.
The 100 Hz setting is available. The characteristics of the 100 Hz setting
are explained in the previous section "Operation with D6 or D12 Controller settings".
