Because of their weather resistant properties, you can use them indoors or outdoors- wherever great sound is desired. For information on our other products, go to www.dcmspeakers.com or call 1-800-DCM-LOUD. DCM Loudspeakers purchased in the United States from an authorized DCM dealer are guaranteed against defects in material and workmanship for a period of five years from the date purchased by the end user, and limited to the original retail purchaser of the product. PLACEMENT Outdoor use: The materials used in the construction of the DCM Time Out Speaker systems are weather resistant for use in even the harshest conditions. The hardware is brass, the grille is powder-coated aluminum, and the bracket is zinc plated, powder coated steel. The enclosure itself is shatter-resistant. Adhering to just a few mounting guidelines will further extend the life of the product. Whenever possible, mount the speaker under an eave or other protective overhang. Always aim the speaker at a slight downward angle to prevent water from accumulating on the speaker cone. Do not place the speaker in a location where water, snow or ice will accumulate on the speaker for extended periods of time. Indoor Use: The DCM Time Out Speaker systems works very well when it is wall mounted in indoor applications. When you place the speaker on a wall, you take advantage of the natural boundary effect that occurs when a speaker system is placed against one or more surfaces. This boundary effect will provide increased overall output. When you mount the speaker against one surface (on a wall) you increase output by 3dB. When you mount the speaker against two surfaces (on the wall near the ceiling) you increase the output by 6dB. When you mount the speaker against three surfaces (in a corner near the ceiling) you increase the output by 9dB. Please note that the TO52-B and TO82-B include magnetic shielding (bucking magnets) to minimize interference when placed near CRT monitors. Shelf Mounting: The bottom surface of the TO52-B and TO82-B is sloped to maintain level orientation when shelf mounted. Down Firing: The DCM Time Out Speaker systems also work well in a down firing configuration for spaces utilizing open beam ceilings such as offices, restaurants and warehouses. When determining speaker spacing in down-firing installations you can use the following chart: TO52-B =120o nominal coverage (60o off axis) at 2 kHz Ceiling Ceiling Ceiling Ceiling Ceiling Ceiling Ceiling Ht: 8’ Ht: 9’ Ht: 10’ Ht: 11’ Ht: 12’ Ht: 13’ Ht: 14’ Spkr Spkr Spkr Spkr Spkr Spkr Spkr Spacing: 11’ Spacing: 13.5’ Spacing: 16’ Spacing: 18.5’ Spacing: 21’ Spacing: 23.5’ Spacing: 25.5’ Max Max Max Max Max Max Max SPL SPL SPL SPL SPL SPL SPL @ @ @ @ @ @ @ 30W 30W 30W 30W 30W 30W 30W (Listener@3.5’) (Listener@3.5’) (Listener@3.5’) (Listener@3.5’) (Listener@3.5’) (Listener@3.5’) (Listener@3.5’) 102dB 101dB 99dB 98dB 97dB 96dB 95dB DCM disclaims any liability for other incurred damages resulting from product defects.

The speaker may be installed using screws or bolts placed through the “L” shaped holes in the mounting bracket. The center 5/8”-27 hole allows wires to exit through the bracket when wall mounting, for a neat installation. The unused inserts on the bottom of the cabinet (TO82-B) or rear of the cabinet (TO52-B) may be used with standard 1/4”-20 forged eyebolt and an approved safety cable (wire rope sling) where redundant support is required for seismic considerations. These parts are available through many sources including Grainger Corporation. (www.Grainger.com).

Overhead Suspension: Caution: Suspending any object is potentially dangerous and should be attempted nected. Most consumer amplifiers are rated to operate at a 4 ohm minimum output impedance per channel (Check the back panel of the amplifier or the amplifier owners manual to verify). With this arrangement, (2) TO52-B/TO82-B speakers may be connected in parallel to each channel of the amplifier (two 8 ohm speakers per channel= a 4 ohm load). (See Fig. 1). only by individuals who have a thorough knowledge of the techniques and regulations of rigging objects overhead using ONLY hardware approved for this type of installation. DCM strongly recommends that surface mount enclosures only be suspended overhead when taking into account all current national, federal, state, and local regulations. It is the responsibility of the installer to insure that the speaker is installed according to those regulations. If the speaker is suspended, DCM strongly recommends that the system be inspected at least once a year. If any sign of weakness or damage is detected, remedial action should be taken immediately. LEFT INPUT RIGHT AMPLIFIER 4 OHMS PER CHANNEL FIG. 1 + - - + 4 OHMS EACH CHANNEL Near Field Live Sound Monitoring A standard 5/8”-27 thread insert is included on the U-bracket to facilitate mounting on Atlas Sound microphone stands for use as a near-field live sound monitor. Painting the Speakers: The injection molded, polypropylene, talc impregnated cabinets can be painted to match your decor. You should prime the cabinet with two coats of a product such as KrylonTM Sandable Spray Primer #1318. You may use oil or water based house paint or spray paint. (Be sure to use appropriate exterior house paint for outdoor applications). 1. Remove the grilles and brackets 2. Mask the speaker components and input terminals area with newspaper and masking tape. 3. Apply two thin primer coats to the speaker cabinets and knobs. (The brackets do not require a primer coat.) 4. After the primer coats are completely dry, paint the cabinets, brackets and knobs. Be careful not to paint the input terminals. Painting the Grilles: Remove and paint the grilles before inserting them onto the frames: TO52-B: Using a paper clip bent into a “hook” shape, insert it into a grille near the corner and pull the grille away from the cabinet. TO82-B: Remove all screws around the outside of the grille to remove the grille from the cabinet. Apply (2) thin coats of paint (primer is not required) be careful not to let the paint clog the holes in the grilles. Connections: TO52-B/TO82-B The TO52-B and TO82-B loudspeakers include (1) 5-way binding post and (1) 1/4” phone jack. Both inputs are paralleled together to allow daisy chaining with the twoconnector types. The binding post is designed to accept up to 12#awg stranded cable or standard MDP style banana plugs. Amplifier limitations will dictate how many TO52-B/TO82-B speakers may be con- 8 Ohms + + + + - - - - 8 Ohms 8 Ohms 8 Ohms Be sure to use a good quality, unshielded twisted pair speaker cable to connect the amplifier to the speaker(s) (#14AWG for runs <80’, #12AWG for runs >80’). Standard ZIP style speaker cable may also be used if twisted pair cable is not available. DO NOT USE SHIELDED INSTRUMENT STYLE (Guitar) CABLES TO CONNECT SPEAKERS. When making the connections, be sure to maintain proper polarity between speakers. (Red wire to red terminals- black wire to black terminal where applicable). Maintenance and Care Your DCM Time Out loudspeakers have been designed and manufactured for years of trouble-free service. You can clean your loudspeakers with a dampened soft cloth or paper towel. If the speaker is mounted high on a wall or ceiling, use a broom or duster to gently brush it off. Spraying the speaker with a high-pressure water is not recommended.
