Model SL6.2M Extended Range High Output Speaker Key Features: • 46 Hz – 20 kHz Response • 250W Power Handling • 90 dB High Sensitivity • Full-Bandwidth overload protection • Strong-Arm-MountTM for easy, flexible aiming • Lightweight, unobtrusive plastic enclosure • Easy access input terminals General Description: The SL6.2M provides high efficiency, high power handling, and extended frequency response in a very compact, plastic enclosure. It’s proven performance and reliability position it as the correct choice for small to medium theater surround applications. The SL6.2M features a high-energy 6" low frequency transducer, a pure titanium 1" high frequency neodymium transducer mounted on a 100° x 100° waveguide, and a crossover network with full bandwidth protection. These components provide wide dynamic range, smooth coverage, and exceptional reliability. One person installation is simple using the included EV Strong-Arm-MountTM. It provides ease of location and aiming not possible with other brackets. The SL6.2M’s performance, reliability, and shape make it ideal for digital age theaters.

E 1 A B C E F F D Figure 1: EVID™ components Installation and Wiring Step 1: Mount the SAM™ Bracket The SAM™ bracket can be mounted on either side of the speaker, enabling optimal configuration for any installation. First, determine whether the bracket should be mounted on the left or right side of the speaker (do not bolt the speaker to the bracket). It is best to mount the bracket on the side away from the direction in which the speaker will be aimed. This ensures that the full sweep angle is available for aiming on that side and provides easier access to the sweep tightening bolt on the wall bracket (see step 2). For safety, make sure the mounting surface can support more than the speaker's weight! Use only industry-accepted fasteners and mounting methods when mounting the bracket. Consult an expert if you are not sure. For standard vertical installation mount the SAM™ bracket as shown in Figure 4. For horizontal mounting configurations, mounting the bracket on the bottom side (as in Figure 5) is easiest and safest, and allows the speaker to be mounted closer to the ceiling. SAM™ SAM™ Figure 4: SAM™ mounted on side Ceiling Figure 5: SAM™ mounted on bottom Step 2: Mount the Speaker to the SAM™ Bracket Attach the speaker to the SAM™ bracket with the socket head bolt, as shown in Figure 6. Figure 6: Attach SAM™ Secure the speaker with the provided security tool by tightening the two socket head bolts as shown. After selecting the proper horizontal angle, secure the swing axis as shown by tightening bolt A. Next, select the proper vertical angle with the aid of the angle markers as shown in Figure 7. Then secure the rotation axis by tightening bolt B. Bolt A (swing) Bolt B (rotation) 15˚ angle markers Figure 7: Tighten socket-head bolts EV logo cap (small) Connect the wires to the speaker at the back terminal plate observing the polarity of the connections. The push-terminals accept banana connector plugs. Step 3: Wire the Speaker Figure 8: Attach logo caps EV logo cap (large) Attach both logo caps as shown in Figure 8 after tightening and securing the speaker. After all connections are made, test the complete system operation. The Troubleshooting Table on the next page will assist in locating many speaker-related problems. Step 5: Test System Operation Figure 9: Secure seismic security cable Connect seismic security cable The rear of the enclosure includes an eyebolt for connection to a seismic restraint. Connect it to a properly rated hardware fitting that is securely installed independently of the SAM™ bracket. Even if your local construction code does not require the installation of secondary support, its use is highly recommended for further security. Step 4: Secure the Seismic Tab Connection Point If the noise is present but no program material is playing, the likely cause is the signal chain in the electronics. Evaluate each component as necessary to isolate the problem. 4. Constant noise Defective amplifier such as buzzing, or other electronic hissing, humming device If these suggestions do not solve your problem, contact your nearest Electro-Voice dealer or Electro-Voice distributor. Check and correct the system grounding, as required. Check all connections at amplifier and speakers to ensure they are clean and tight. If the problem persists, it may be in the amplifier or wiring. See no. 1 above. 3. Intermittent output Faulty connection such as crackling or distortion Poor system grounding or ground loop Using a test speaker as described above, verify that all amplifier and speaker wires are connected to their proper terminals with the correct polarity. Reversing just one set of amplifier wires can cut out all bass output from the subwoofer. Improperly wired subwoofer panel 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 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. Wiring When two speakers are connected out of polarity (out of phase), 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 the red speaker terminals and the amplifier (–) terminal is connected to all the black speaker terminals. 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. Amplifier Possible Cause(s) Action Speakers wired out-of-polarity 2. Poor lowfrequency response 1.
