(including amplifiers) that produce heat. 9. Only use attachments/accessories specified by the manufacturer. 10. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel. Servicing is required when the apparatus has been damaged in any way, such as liquid has been spilled or objects have fallen into the apparatus, the apparatus has been exposed to rain or moisture, does not operate normally, or has been dropped. 11. The entire sound system must be designed in compliance with the current standards and laws regarding electrical systems. 12. When installing and using this apparatus, keep in mind the technical specifications indicated in the dedicated section of the manual. 13. Exposure to high sound levels can cause permanent hearing loss. The sound pressure level which leads to hearing loss varies considerably from one person to another, and depends on the duration of exposure. The U.S. Government’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has established the maximum sound pressure levels that can be with stood without causing damage, which are shown in the table below. According to the OSHA regulations, any exposure over the maximum limits indicated in the table can reduce the hearing capacity of a person. To prevent potentially dangerous exposure to high sound pressure levels, anyone subjected to such levels must use suitable protection. When a EAW Commercial product capable of producing high sound levels is being used, it is therefore necessary to wear ear plugs or protective earphones when the limits shown in the table are exceeded. Consult the specifications provided in the instruction manual to know the maximum sound pressure (SPL) the loudspeaker is capable of producing. WARNING! This equipment has been designed to be installed by qualified professionals only! There are many factors to be considered when installing professional sound reinforcement systems, including mechanical and electrical considerations, as well as acoustic coverage and performance. EAW Commercial strongly recommends that this equipment be installed only by a professional sound installer or contractor. 2 – CIS Series Sound level (dBA) Typical example 8 90 Duo in a small club 6 92 Duration per day (hours) 4 95 3 97 2 100 1.5 102 1 105 0.5 110 0.25 or less 115 Subway train Very loud classical music Locomotive at 50 feet Loudest parts at a rock concert Part No. 0010794 Rev.

INTRODUCTION This manual describes the CIS50, CIS65 and CIS80 loudspeakers. These are designed for flush-mounting ceiling installation. The HF and LF drivers are coaxially mounted for a smooth frequency response and a symmetrical projection pattern. This results in an attractive design and good acoustic features for quality speech and music reproduction. Each loudspeaker is equipped with a line transformer that makes it possible to connect it to constant voltage sound systems at 70 V or 100 V. The transformer has taps, allowing a selection of power ratings. The polypropylene LF cone and mylar HF dome provide stable operation in varying environmental conditions. They also provide higher reliability and longevity over similarly priced paper-coned products. The steel firedome (backcan) is fitted with unique clamps that can significantly reduce its installation time. The grille assembly is firmly attached from behind the baffle. The driver/baffle assembly then easily installs in the premounted firedome with spring-loaded hardware. This results in a solid attachment method that also provides a cosmetically clean appearance. Five year warranty. Applications include: • Meeting Rooms • Hotels • Transportation Terminals • Multizone Paging/Music Systems • Healthcare Facilities • Commercial Offices • Conference Rooms • Schools CIS Series – 3 3. INSTALLATION The metal firedome provided with each loudspeaker offers quick installation into ceilings. WARNING: Make sure that the loudspeaker is installed in a stable and secure way in order to avoid any conditions that may be dangerous for persons or structures: • Check to make sure that the ceiling has the necessary mechanical characteristics to support the weight of the loudspeaker without the danger of it falling. • Before suspending the loudspeaker, carefully check all the components to be used to make sure there is no damage, deformation, corrosion and/or missing or damaged parts that could reduce the safety of the installation. Installation precautions • Use speaker cables with an adequate cross-section (gauge). The greater the distance between the amplifier and loudspeaker, the larger the connection cable cross-section should be. • To prevent inductive phenomena causing humming or distortion, the speaker cables should not be run together with electrical energy conductors, microphone cables, or line-level audio lines. Use speaker cables that have markings to distinguish the polarity, such as insulation or conductors of different colors. Installation procedure 1. Cut a hole in the ceiling, using all safety precautions to avoid cutting power lines, water lines etc. Use the following table as a guide: Loudspeaker Diameter CIS50 160 mm CIS65 200 mm CIS80 230 mm 2. Take the firedome, loosen the two wing bolts, and slide the fixing plates upwards. This allows the firedome to be pushed up inside the ceiling hole. Before you do that, thread your audio speaker cable through one of the firedome grommets . The firedome comes with a large fixing bolt for securing in case of earthquakes etc. 3. When the firedome is securely pushed up inside the ceiling hole, slide the fixing plates down to grip the top surface of the ceiling, and tighten up the two wing bolts. This will hold the firedome in place. 4 – CIS Series 4. CONNECTIONS WARNING: To prevent the risk of electric shock, do not connect the loudspeaker with the amplifier switched on. 1. Offer up the Loudspeaker and attach the spring clips to one of the firedome side brackets. 2. Connect your amplifier output to the terminals on the loudspeaker. The negative amplifier output connects to the loudspeaker COM terminal, the positive amplifier output connects to one of the other loudspeaker terminals. Use the tables in the specification section to select the power rating for the voltage line you are using (70 V or 100 V). Use a small flat screwdriver to secure the connections. 54 3 21 54 3 21 COM COM 3. When the connections are securely made, connect the other spring clip to the firedome, and press the loudspeaker upwards until it is flush with the ceiling. Precautions • Before using the loudspeaker, carefully check that all the connections have been made correctly to make sure there are no accidental short circuits that could cause electrical sparks. • Check if your power amplifier’s constant output voltage is 70 V or 100 V, and find the rated power output. • The sum of the operating power values of all the loudspeakers connected to the audio line must not exceed 80 % of the amplifier’s output power. • Verify that the connections to all of your loudspeakers are made correctly “in phase.” When different loudspeakers reproduce the same frequencies but with phase differences, there may be sound cancellation. Loudspeakers are often situated in adjacent positions and the sound waves interact with each other. If a loudspeaker is connected incorrectly; i.e., the polarity of the audio line conductors is inverted, the audio signals are transmitted with differences in phase and correct reproduction is therefore jeopardized. Most notably, the bass response may suffer. CIS Series – 5 5.
