XLC-DVX Upgrade Process

Upgrade of the A1 and A2 Grids for
“XLC-DVX Systems”
The center of gravity of all previous Xlc loudspeaker systems is centered left to right. However,
the center of gravity of the Xlc127DVX and Xlci127DVX loudspeaker systems is shifted off
center towards the low-frequency side. Thus, if a single hoist motor is used from the center hole
in the spreader bar to suspend the A1 or A2 grids overhead, a column of Xlc127DVX
loudspeaker systems will not hang straight. Nor would a column of Xlc127DVX systems with
Xlc118 or Xlc215 subwoofers at the top hang straight.
The B1 and B2 grids were developed specifically for the Xlc127DVX loudspeaker systems and
have additional center holes in the grid spreader bar that allow for Xlc127DVX systems to hang
straight. In the new spreader bars, the original center hole remains (to be used with all older Xlc
systems), but two additional holes have been added for the Xlc127DVX loudspeaker systems.
The hole furthest off center would be used when suspending Xlc127DVX systems only. The hole
slightly off center would be used when subwoofers (either Xlc118 or Xlc215) are hung at the top
of the array with Xlc127DVX systems at the bottom of the array.
The older A1 and A2 grids may be used to suspend Xlc127DVX systems if two hoist motors are
used in the left/right configuration.
The figure below shows the older A1 and newer B1 grids. The only difference between the older
and newer grids is the spreader bar. A program exists that allow owners of A1 or A2 grids to
trade in their older spreader bars for new spreader bars. This effectively upgrades their grids to
the new B1 and B2 models that may be used with either older or newer Xlc loudspeaker systems.
Older A1 Grid
B1 Grid – XLC DVX or “+”

XLC-DVX Upgrade Process

Upgrade the High-Frequency Section If Necessary:
The high-frequency section contains two ND6 compression drivers that are each mounted on an
acoustic lens (commonly referred to as a hydra), that are in turn secure to the high-frequency
horn. Early production systems were built with hydras that were manufactured from urethane
(PN 500584-000). The hydras were later redesigned for improved performance and were
manufactured out of aluminum (PN 800594-000).
Typically units produced after February 2004 (SN: 04060)have the die-cast hydr’s.
Any Xlc loudspeaker system that contains urethane hydras MUST be upgraded to aluminum
hydras when undergoing the XLC-DVX upgrade.
Using the Phillips screwdriver (or drill bit) remove the 8 screws (PN 581003-000) that hold the
high-frequency assembly to the enclosure.
Note: Use caution not to loose plastic washer (PN 38809) that is installed between
screw head and high-frequency horn.
Inspect the hydras. If they are made out of metal and have part number 800594 on the side they
do not need to be upgraded. If the hydras are not made of metal and do not have part number
they should be upgraded to the aluminum hydras. The 301888-000 upgrade kit may be ordered
for this purpose. Please contact the Morrilton parts department for ordering.
