1. INTRODUCTION
Thank you for your purchasing one of our ELVIS speaker enclosures. It is just
one of the many Alto products that a talented, multinational Team of Audio
Engineers and Musicians have developed with their great passion for music.
We design all our transducers and cabinets in Emilia-Romagna of Italy, a
lowland famous for music and fast cars. In fact, Lamborghini, Maserati and
Ferrari are made just a few miles away from our design centers. The same
area has a long tradition in designing and manufacturing some of the world's
best professional transducers. Your ELVIS speaker cabinet is capable of very
high sound pressure level and it has been created to give you a performance
that is better than any loudspeaker in this range. They are flexible in their
passive and active configurations and can be used with single and multiple
subwoofers.
Enjoy your ELVIS speaker and make sure to read this Manual carefully before
operation!

Passive, Full-range, two speakers. This is the simplest set-up. You just need
a mixer and a stereo amplifier. It is good for small club gigs, disco,etc.
Make all initial connections with all the equipment powered off, and ensure that
all the main volume controls are turned down completely.
1). Connect one side of the speaker cable to the Output CHA/CHB or Binding
Post of your stereo power amplifier and the other side to the Input socket
of your Elvis speaker cabinet.
2). Complete other connections as illustrated.
3). Turn on your mixer first, then the stereo power amplifier.
4). Turn up the volume controls of your amplifier to about 70%.
5). Use PFL function to get the proper input level for the mixer, and adjust the
Main Mix Level control to manipulate the output level.
6). After use, turn off your stereo power amplifier first, then the mixer.

If you use a powered mixer for the passive speakers, it is no need to use an
amplifier. make sure all the main volume controls of your power mixer are turned
down completely.
1). Connect one side of the speaker cable to the SPEAKER OUT of your powered
mixer and the other side to the Input socket of your Elvis speaker cabinet.
2). Use PFL function to get the proper input level for the mixer, and adjust the
Main Mix Level control to manipulate the output level.
3). After use, turn down of the Main Mix Level control first, then turn off the
powered mixer.

2).Connect the THROUGH socket of the first Elvis cabinet to the INPUT socket
of the second Elvis cabinet.
NOTE: Every time you connect Elvis cabinets this way your parallel them to

Passive two subwoofers and two satellite speakers. With this example, the
stereo amplifier drives both the subwoofers and the satellites. In this case we
do not call them full-range anymore because they receive a signal from the
subwoofer that is already xovered at 125 Hz. In this way, the high energetic
content of the low frequencies is limited to the subwoofer and the satellite's
woofer act like a mid-woofer.
1). Connect one side of speaker cable to the Output CHA/CHB or Binding Post
of your stereo power amplifier and the other side to the Input socket of your
subwoofer, with the second speaker cable connect the Output of the sub
-woofer to the Input of satellite.
2). Complete other connections as illustrated.
3). Turn on your mixer first, then the stereo power amplifier.
4). Turn up the volume controls of your amplifier to about 70%.
5). Use PFL function to get the proper input level for the mixer, and adjust the

Make all initial connections with all the equipment powered off, and ensure that
all the main volume controls are turned down completely.
1). Connect one side of the signal cable at your mixer into the Main Output Left
/ Right (with 1/4"Jack or XLR) and the other side of the cable in to the Line
Input (COMBO) of your ELVIS active speaker cabinet (with1/4"Jack or XLR).
2). Connect the power cord to mains.
3). Turn ON your mixer first, then the ELVIS cabinets.
4). Turn up the volume control of the ELVIS cabinets.
5). Use PFL function to get the proper input level for the mixer, and adjust the

Active, Full-range, multiple speakers. This solution is particularly flexible when
you have a large stage and for fixed installations where you want to send the
same signal to different zones like in a Bar, Pub, Restaurant, Church, etc. Each
ELVIS cabinet has its own volume control so you can adjust different volumes in
different zones.
1). Follow the above steps connecting the MAIN OUTPUTS of the mixer to the
LINE INPUTS of 2 Elvis active cabinets.
2). Connect the LINE OUT socket of the first ELVIS cabinet to the LINE IN
socket of the subsequent piece. You can connect as many speakers as you
wish in this way.

Active, two satellite speakers & two subwoofers. In this example, the mixer is
connected to the ELVIS subwoofers and then a 125 Hz xovered line signal is sent
to the respective satellites. In this way, the high energetic content of the low
frequencies is limited to the subwoofer and the satellite' s woofer act like a mid
-woofer. As a consequence the satellites built-in amplifier is not stressed by low
frequency content.
1). Connect one side of signal cable at your mixer into Main Output Left / Right
(with1/4" Jack or XLR) and the other side of the cable into the Left / Mono
Input (COMBO) of the ELVIS active subwoofers; with the second signal cable
connect the Left/Mono Line Output of the subwoofer (Stereo / Mono-Jack
or XLR) to the Line input (COMBO) of the active satellite (with Stereo - Jack
or XLR).
2). Connect the power cord to mains.
3). Turn on your mixer first, then the active speaker cabinets.
4). Turn up the volume control of the active speaker cabinets.
5). Use PFL function to get the proper input level for the mixer, and adjust the
Main Mix Level control to manipulate the output level.
6). After use, turn off your active speaker cabinets first, then the mixer.
