(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. 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

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. 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.

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.
