APPLICATION
LSS's SUBTREX loudspeaker is a reflex subwoofer used as an extension
module for low-frequency reinforcement of TREX system, indeed, both
SUBTREX and TREX have the same enclosure cabinet.
This system uses two woofers of 15" with high performance and very high
peak output for concert sound. SUBTREX powering mode is only passive
amplified operation with external digital processor.
High output, bass response and low distortion make the SUBTREX
surprising in performance.

INSTALLATION AND WIRING
SUBTREX can be installed stand alone or in stack configuration, in most
cases, with TREX loudspeaker. It must be installed only in vertical position.
In the bottom of the case there are two plastic skeeds used as feet to
support the sub.
If installation is in stacking mode, plastic skeed fit on the recesses placed in
the top of the case placed beneath.
8| Operating Manual ver. SUBTREX-EN-1.0
______________________________________________________________________________
In addition, it can be installed suspended through the mounting bracket
placed inside the case.
There is a total of eight brackets inside the case: four in the top and four in
the bottom. Each bracket is secured to two adjacent internal side of speaker
using two M10 screwbolts.
If needed, replace the screwbolts with eyebolts.
More detaliled:
Two brackets are connected between top and left side of case.
Two brackets are connected between top and right side of case.
Two brackets are connected between bottom and left side of case.
Two brackets are connected between bottom and right side of case.
When installation is in suspended mode, use the upper or lower brackets.
Unscrew one of the two screws hold a single bracket, the second screw
must be screwed only after the first one has been tightened to avoid the
bracket moves.
It is possible to install a maximum of three speakers in cascade using
eyebolts.
Use plugs suitable to support the weight of the entire apparatus.
Speaker can be suspended too using the flying tracks placed in the sides
and rear of the case. Multiple flying tracks allow to choice the position and
inclination of suspended speaker.

Choose a safe mounting location, so as to prevent the cables can be
stepped on or create tripping hazards.
Before making connections between mixer and speakers, make sure the
mixer volume is turned down.

TROUBLESHOOTING
Problem
Possible cause (s)
Amplifier
1. No Sound
Wiring
2. Poor Low
Frequency
Response
Speakers wired outof-polarity
3. Intermittent
output such as
crackling or
distortion
Faulty Connection
Action
Connect a known working test speaker to the amplifier outputs. If
there is no sound, check that all the electronics are on, the signal
routing is correct, the source is active, the volume is turned up,
and so on. Correct/repair/replace as necessary. If there is sound,
the problem is in the wiring.
Verify that you have connected the correct wire pairs to the
amplifier. Play something at low level through the amplifier (for
example, from a CD player or tuner). Connect the test speaker in
parallel with the malfunctioning line. If the sound level has gone
or is very weak, the line has a short in it (possibly a severe
scrape, pinch, or staple puncture). If the sound level is normal,
the wire is open (possibly a cut wire or a missed connection).
Using the test speaker, move down the line and test each
connection/junction until you find the problem and correct it.
Observe proper polarity.
When two speakers are connected out of polarity, the low
frequencies will cancel each other acoustically. Carefully observe
the wire markings or tracers on your speaker wires. Verify that
the amplifier (+) terminal is connected to pin 1+ of the NL4
connector and the amplifier (-) terminal is connected to pin 1- of
the NL4 connector.
Check all connections at amplifier and speakers to ensure they
are all clean and tight. If the problem persists, it may be in the
amplifier or wiring. See Problem 1 above.
Defective amplifier or If the noise is present but no program material is playing, the
other electronic
likely cause is the signal chain in the electronics. Evaluate each
