Introduction & Product Details
1.0 Introduction
This manual is designed to give the S-Series user the necessary information to accurately
fly or stack S-Series loudspeakers in all the available configurations, as well as the proper
deployment and use of S-Series loudspeakers. Safe step by step rigging procedures will be
outlined, as well as example system configurations, correct wiring and amplification and
transport.
1.1 Overview
Whether it is amplification, control, networking and monitoring, the S-Series packaging is built
to perform and endure. Our alliances have been made with companies that are leading the
industry in their technologies and in their ideologies: Dante-networking, Lake-processing and
Lab.gruppen-amplification. After all it’s the total system performance that matters.
Low-mid frequency lobing is a common side-effect of traditional 2-way enclosures.
To solve this problem, Adamson has introduced Controlled Summation Technology,
which reduces the spacing between mid frequency sources by outwardly splaying the
drivers and using overlap control between mid frequency and high frequency sources
to suppress the interference normally associated with this type of design. Doing this
also allows the high frequency sound chamber to retain its exit size, ensuring that it
retains its superior directivity control.
Adamson’s SlideLock rigging system has been designed to remove operator stress
while adding confidence. A single technician can safely and quickly fly the entire
rig, setting angles while the cabinets are sitting securely on the 4-up dolly. Once the
array is lifted, all cabinets simply align into 1 of 9 incremental splay positions.

1.3 S10 Spec Sheet
S10
The S10 is a 2-way, full range line array cabinet containing 2x ND10-LM
Kevlar Neodymium drivers (2x 16 Ω) and an NH4TA2 1.5” exit compression driver (8 Ω). The critically optimized sound chamber produces
a slightly curved wavefront with a nominal dispersion pattern of 110°
x 10° (H x V). The chamber’s efficiency allows for increased vertical
dispersion without sacrificing high frequency presence in the far field.
Patent-pending Controlled Summation Technology further eliminates
low-mid lobing normally associated with 2-way line source systems.
The cabinet construction uses marine grade birch plywood as well as
aircraft grade steel and aluminum, and is equipped with two Speakon™
NL8 connectors. The rigging system incorporates the best aspects of
previous advancements in our new SlideLock rigging technology.
The S10 is suited to a wide variety of applications. Its full range capability (60 Hz) at reasonable levels qualifies for applications where sub
is not required. Increased vertical coverage (10°) enables the S10 to
cover theaters, arenas and stadiums with reasonable speaker quantity.
Other target applications include dance clubs, medium size festivals,
corporate events and contemporary churches.

1.7 Cardioid Subs
Every Adamson subwoofer has specifically designed cardioid presets. Adamson utilizes three
configurations ranging from a minimal footprint and minimized rear rejection to larger setups
that eliminate virtually all audio energy behind the array. Please refer to the Lake Preset Loading
Manual for further instructions.
Front-Back
End-Fire 66
The FB preset should be used in situations
where a minimal footprint is desired.
Only 2 enclosures stacked ensures that
sightlines will not be impaired.
The EF66 preset should be used
in situations where the most
rear cancellation is desired.
Unlike
traditional
end-fire
arrays, Adamson’s proprietary
preset eliminates a wide range
of frequencies in the rear of the
array.

2.4 Pin Swap Cable
A single PLM + amplifier can drive up to 8x S10 enclosures, so long as the NL803 Pin Swap Cable
(920-0024) is utilized. This cable is marked with red heat shrink to distinguish it from other NL8
links in a user’s inventory.
Pins 1 & 2 are switched with pins 3 & 4 in this cable, allowing S10 users to load all output channels
of a Lab.gruppen PLM + amplifier. Here is an example of how to configure the outputs in Lake
Controller to make use of this cable:
Since the PLM + amplifiers offer four
DSP modules, recalling 2x LF and 2x
HF modules will allow for greater zone
control in an S10 array.

3.1 Rigging Overview
ATTENTION
IMPORTANT OPERATING
INSTRUCTIONS
The SlideLock Rigging System
The SlideLock Rigging System allows for the operator to set enclosure angles while still stacked on the dolly. A
series of push pins maintain angular position and lock in connecting rigging pieces. Caution should be taken while
connecting cabinets to ensure hands are out of the way.
The order of operation of the rigging system is: prep angles, remove connection pins, guide into place and secure
connecting pins.
There are 9 angles, 0 to 8, and an
additional ‘Storage’ being the ‘idle’
or ‘rest’ position, when the rigging
hardware is all the way down and
the boxes aren’t connected. It is
applicable when the enclosure is
not in use, to protect the rigging
hardware from damage. To keep the
system intact for transport, leave the
angles pinned in.
The angles are numbered as well
as color coded to mark which slot
should be pinned with the attached
push-pin. (Fig. 2) The following

1. Lower the array until it is just above the floor. (Fig. 1)
2. Make sure the bottom back link pins on the bottom box are removed.
3. Connect the dolly to the bottom cabinet.
4. If the bottom cabinets are at a steep angle and it is unsafe to continue
to lower the array, two crew members should be used to support the
weight of the cabinet at all times; before the dolly has ground contact,
(the dolly should never tip over as in (Fig. 3) push the hang to the front
in order to prevent the dolly to tip over, then proceed lowering the array
(Fig.2); release the bottom back links pins above this cabinet to free the
rear of the bottom cabinet.
5. All front levers should stay connected. This will allow you to raise the
motors until the frame is no longer steeply angled. (Fig. 4)
6. Remove the top front link pins on the top cabinet in the 4 stack to
release and allow the bottom 4 cabinets to separate from the array.
7. Lift the array just above the 4 stack and wheel 4 stack out from under
array. (Fig. 5)
If the bottom cabinet in the array is still at a steep angle - repeat this
procedure.
