Features
This powered subwoofer system is designed to
reproduce the low frequencies of the audio
spectrum, providing a high level of power.
It comprises two 18” model 18LX long-excursion
loudspeakers
with
enhanced
performance
(increased power handling capabily and reduced
distortion) and optimized design.
The amplifier features an intelligent power supply
which detects the mains voltage level and adjusts
internal voltages to ensure maximum system
efficiency.
Furthermore, the 2400W class D amplifier offers
exceptional performance and minimum heat
generation.
The digital signal processing (DSP) provides
improved control over the input signal treatment.
The "R" version features rigging hardware
enabling the systems to be flown simply, safely
and efficiently.
A) INPUT CLIP:
Red LED indicates and excessive input signal,
saturation of the DSP and excessive increases in
distortion.
B) LOOP THRU :
XLR-type output signal connector for
connecting several units together and sending
them all the same signal.
C) INPUT :
XLR-type input signal connector, which just like
the LOOP THRU connector, is a balanced
connector with the following pins:
1=GND (Ground).
2=(+) Non invertided input.
3=(-) Invertided input.
D) CLIP :
Red LED indicates amplifier saturation, in other
words, when it reaches Clip.
E) PROTECTION :
Yellow LED indicates that the protection
system has been activated. If the problem that
activated the protection is resolved, the amplifier
will restart. The problems that can activate the
protection system are:
-Mains power out of operating range
-Overheating.
-Overload or short-circuit.
-DC voltage present at the loudspeaker output.
F) SIGNAL :

USE
Preliminary
This product should only be used in E1, E2, E3
or E4(*) environments, in accordance with standard
EN55103-2 (Electromagnetic compatibility. Product
family standard for audio, video, audio-visual and
entertainment lighting control apparatus for
professional use. Part 2: Immunity.)
Do not cover the amplifier's radiator nor
obstruct its ventilation (except for the rain protector
supplied by DAS).
For consumption reasons, it is important not to
connect the equipment to the same line as the
lighting systems, thus avoiding interruptions or
sudden drops in lighting intensity.
ON / OFF
A sound system should be switched on
sequentially. Switch on the self-powered units last
in your sound system (switch on the subwoofer
before the mid-high system). Switch on the sund
sources such as CD players or turntables, then the
mixer, then the processors, and finally the selfpowered unit. If you have several units, it is
recommended that you switch them on
sequentially one at a time.
Follow the inverse order when switching off,
turning self-powered units off before any other
element in the sound system.
Disconnect the device by removing the mains
connector from the mains socket. The mains
connector and mains socket must always be freely
accessible and never covered or blocked in any
way. The mains cable can be detached from the
device by disconnecting the Neutrik PowerCon
connector. Pull the metal lock back, turn the
Neutrik PowerCon counter clockwise to stop and
pull the Neutrik PowerCon connector out. Always
disconnect the device by removing the mains
connector from the mains socket before detaching
the mains cable at the Neutrik PowerCon
connector.
IMPORTANT: Do not disconnect the Neutrik
PowerCon connector during music.
Ensure that the device is disconnected from
mains by observing that the lamp marked POWER
is turned off. Please note that the POWER lamp
can stay on for several seconds after the mains
power has been disconnected.
EN
Overload indicators
This device has two indicators (red leds), one
for overload input signal and other for the
amplifier’s clip.
The indicators should not be lit continuously.
This distorts the signal (quickly fatiguing your ears)
and may damage the speakers. Therefore, it is
recommended that you never work with this leds
on; at most they should blink only occasionally.
4
Overheating
This equipment does not normally overheat
during normal conditions of use. When overheating
occurs, the unit protects itself and the yellow LED
'Protection' lights up. You should then find out why
and if necessary contact an authorised dealer for
Technical Assistance.
Normally it is enough just to let the unit cool
down after you have corrected the problem so that
the system functions properly again.
Equalisation
The units does not need extreme settings of
equalisation to produce quality sound. Avoid high
levels of gain on the equalisers. Gain values above
+3 dB on a console’s EQ are not recommended.
Low mains voltage
If mains voltage falls below the shutdown
voltage for the unit, it will stop playing (the yellow
led is on: Protection activated). When acceptable
levels are regained, the unit will switch back on
automatically (the yellow led is off: Protection
deactivated).
The mains supply input can assess the
network's voltage level and thus makes the system
work in two possible voltage ranges: From 85
Vrms to 130 Vrms; and from 170 Vrms to 260
Vrms.
Therefore, in a country with a nominal mains
supply voltage of 120 Vrms, the unit will
disconnect when the voltage in the socket goes
below 85V or above 130V (both Vrms). Likewise, in
a country with a nominal mains supply voltage of
230 Vrms, the unit will disconnect itself when the
voltage at the plug goes below 170V or above
260V (both Vrms).
The current draw for 230 V can be seen on the
accompanying table. Double the ratings to get the
115V current consumption.

Self-powered systems connection
The illustration below show a typical diagram for connecting this system to other powered units. In this
four-way configuration and the sub-bass frequencies are handled by LX-218A units while the low, medium and
high frequencies are handled by aero 38A units. An external processor is required to time-align the sub-bass
and low frequencies by adding delays. Additional equalization or filtering are not required.
As can bee seen, the aero 38A units are connected using the loop thru’s on both the mains supply as well
as the signal. In the case of the LX-218A, only the signal can be looped thru, power must be supplied to each
unit independently.

APPENDIX: Line connections: unbalanced and balanced
There are two basic ways to transport an audio signal with microphone or line level:
Unbalanced line: Utilising a two conductor cable, it transports the signal as the voltage between them.
Electromagnetic interference can get added to the signal as undesired noise. Connectors that carry
unbalanced signals have two pins, such as RCA (Phono) and ¼” (6.35mm, often referred to as jack) mono. 3
pin connector such as XLR (Cannon) may also carry unbalanced signals if one of the pins is unused.
Balanced line: Utilising a three conductor cable, one of them acts as a shield against electromagnetic
noise and is the ground conductor. The other two have the same voltage with respect to the ground
conductor but with opposite signs. The noise that cannot be rejected by the shield affects both signal
conductors in the same way. At the device’s input the two signals get summed with opposite sign, so that
noise is cancelled out while the programme signal doubles in level. Most professional audio devices use
balanced inputs and outputs. Connectors that can carry balanced signal have three pins, such as XLR
(Cannon) and ¼” (6.35mm) stereo.
The graphs that follow show the recommended connection with different types of connectors to balanced
processor or amplifier inputs. The connectors on the left-hand side come from a signal source, and the ones
on the right hand side go to the inputs of the processor or amplifier. Note that on the unbalanced connectors
on the left-hand side, two terminals are joined in side the connector. If hum occurs with balanced to balanced
connections, try disconnecting the sleeve (ground) on the input connector. Note that the illustrations show
what should be connected to what, but that pin locations on an actual XLR connector are different. Also, pin
2 hot is assumed on XLR connectors.
