1. INTRODUCTION
Thank you for your purchasing one of our ELVIS MKII 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 MKII 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 configurations and can be used with single and multiple
Subwoofers.
Enjoy your ELVIS MKII 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 equipments 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 MKII 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 MKII 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.

speakers are connected instead of two.
1).Follow the same steps as described above.
2).Connect the THROUGH socket of the first Elvis MKII cabinet to the INPUT
socket of the second Elvis MKII cabinet.
NOTE: Every time you connect Elvis MKII cabinets this way you parallel them to
the output of the amplifier that will read half of the impedance of one speaker.

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 covered 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
Main Mix Level control to manipulate the output level.
6). After use, turn off your stereo power amplifier first, then the mixer.
