CH 1 knob / CH 1 Input Jacks In addition to a 1/4" phone jack, this channel is equipped with a balanced XLR connector, useful for connecting microphones.
This accepts input levels ranging from mic input (-50 dBu) to line level from sound modules and other equipment (-20 dBu). MASTER CONTROL These
adjust the tone and volume level for the built-in speakers or for headphones. 4. LOW Knob This adjusts the level of the bass range.
2. CH 2 and CH 3 knobs / CH 2 and CH 3 Input Jacks Use these for connecting keyboards, sound modules, and other devices. They accept line level input
(-20 dBu). 5. HIGH Knob This adjusts the level of the treble range.
6. VOLUME Knob This adjusts the total volume level of the unit's internal speaker. The SUBWOOFER OUT output is also changed. When connecting
headphones, adjust the headphone volume level. * The VOLUME knob do not affect the line outs. 3. CH 4 knob / CH 4 Input Jack CH 4 is dedicated to
monitoring channel. The signal that is input to CH 4 will not be output from the line out jack, but will be output only from the internal speaker and from the
headphones. You can use the KC-150 for talkback from the main PA or as a monitor for live performances on stage or in other locations; this is an easy and
convenient way to allow only the performer or performers to monitor the guide sounds from drum machines. Use this for connecting keyboards, sound
modules, and other devices.
This accepts line level input (-20 dBu). * If your setup does not use line output, CH4 can be used in the same way as the other channels. 7. PHONES Jack This
is for connecting headphones. The unit's speakers are deactivated when headphones are plugged in. Also, no signals are output from SUBWOOFER OUT (p.
7). * Always be sure to lower the VOLUME knob to 0 whenever connecting and disconnecting headphones. * Although the PHONES jack accepts stereo
plugs, the audio output is mono. 6 Panel Descriptions 8.
Power Indicator This indicator illuminates when the power is on. 9. POWER Switch This switches the power on and off. * If you need to turn off the power
completely, first turn off the POWER switch, then unplug the power cord from the power outlet. Refer to "Power Supply" (p.
5). * Always be sure to lower the volume on the KC-150 and any connected equipment to 0 whenever turning the power on or off. * This unit is equipped with
a protection circuit. A brief interval (a few seconds) after power up is required before the unit will operate normally. Slight pop noise may come from the
speakers when the power is switched on, but this does not indicate a problem.
* Refer to p. 9 for the order in which to turn the power to connected devices on and off. 10.AUX IN Jacks These are RCA phono type input jacks. You use
these to connect equipment such as CD and MD players, and have them sound along with the equipment connected to channel 1 through channel 4. They
accept level input of -10 dBu. * To adjust the volume level of equipment connected to the AUX IN jacks, use the controls on such equipment. * Even though the
input signal may be in stereo, the signal is mixed internally to a mono signal. 11.LINE OUT Jack Connect mixers, recorders, and other such equipment here.
This output jack provides +4 dBu line level output. * The MASTER CONTROL knobs (the LOW, HIGH, and VOLUME controls) do not affect the output from
LINE OUT. The signal that is input to CH 4 will not be output. 12.SUBWOOFER OUT Jack This lets you play even more powerful bass by connecting a
powered subwoofer.

Provides full-range output, at an output level of +4 dBu. You can use the MASTER CONTROL knobs (LOW, HIGH, and VOLUME) to adjust the tone and
volume level of the signals output from SUBWOOFER OUT. * No signals are output from SUBWOOFER OUT when headphones are connected. 7 Making the
Connections Refer to the figure shown below to connect the KC-150 and the other equipment. fig.
03 Control Panel Rear Panel Stereo Headphone Microphone INPUT INPUT OUTPUT OUTPUT CD Player Mixer Subwoofer (With built-in amp) Drum
Machine Keyboard Here is an example of a setup that makes full use of the KC150's mixer and monitor functions. A microphone is input to CH 1, which
accepts mic level input. Connect a keyboard, recorder, or other soundgenerating device to the CH 2, CH 3 and CH 4 inputs. @@@@@@* The pin
assignment for the XLR type connectors is as shown below. @@This can be remedied by: 1.
Changing the orientation of the microphone. 2. Relocating microphone at a greater distance from the speaker. 3. Lowering volume levels.
* When connection cables with resistors are used, the volume level of equipment connected to the inputs (CH 1 through CH 4 and AUX IN) may be low. If this
happens, use connection cables that do not contain resistors, such as those from the Roland PCS series. 8 Making the Connections Switching the Power On
and Off Once the connections have been completed, turn on power to your various devices in the order specified. By turning on devices in the wrong order,
you risk causing malfunction and/or damage to speakers and other devices. 1. Make sure that all volume controls on the KC-150 and connected devices are
set to 0. 2. Turn on all the devices connected to the KC-150's input jacks (CH 1 through CH 4 and AUX IN). 3. Turn on the KC-150.
4. Switch on any equipment connected to the KC-150's LINE OUT or SUBWOOFER OUT jacks. 5. Adjust the volume levels for the devices. 6. Before
switching off the power, lower the volume on each of the devices in your system and then TURN OFF the devices in the reverse order to which they were
switched on. * This unit is equipped with a protection circuit. A brief interval (a few seconds) after power up is required before the unit will operate normally.
For protection from sudden big sound, always make sure to have the volume level turned down before switching on power. Even with the volume all the way
down, you may still hear some sound when the power is switched on, but this is normal, and does not indicate a malfunction.
* If you need to turn off the power completely, first turn off the POWER switch, then unplug the power cord from the power outlet. Refer to "Power Supply"
(p. 5). About the Volume-level Settings In order to get optimum sound from the KC-150 when performing, set the volume as described below. 1.
Operate the CH 1 through CH 4 volume knobs to adjust the volume level for channels 1 through 4. fig.11 Adjust the volume balance for channels 1 through 4
at this time. * To adjust the volume level of equipment connected to the AUX IN jacks, use the controls on such equipment. 2.
Adjust the LOW and HIGH knobs to obtain the tone you want. 3. Use the VOLUME knob to adjust the overall volume level. fig.12 * If the sound is distorted,
lower the CH 1 through CH 4 volume knobs, VOLUME knob and/or the volume knobs for devices connected to the input jacks (CH 1 through CH 4 and AUX
IN). 9 Using a Speaker Stand By using a speaker stand, you can mount the KC-150 at the optimal height for use as a monitor speaker or simple PA device. fig.
Caution The KC-150 is designed to be used only with speaker stands whose dimensions meet the specifications described below. Do not use it with a speaker
stand that does not meet the following specifications. fig.
05 Before use, adjust the speaker stand to a height of 140 cm (55-1/8") or less and a leg spread of 120 cm (47-1/4") or more, as shown in the figure below.
fig.08\ Diameter: 3.8 cm (1-1/2") 140 cm (55-1/8") or less Leg spread: 120 cm (47-1/4") or more fig.06_e 120 cm (47-1/4") or more Using a speaker stand
that does not meet the specifications at left or that is adjusted to a height over Diam eter: 136 c m or mo (53-9/16 ") re 140 cm (55-1/8"), or a leg spread of
less than 120 cm (471/4") may result in damage to equipment or injury due to the stand tipping over. When using KC-150 with a speaker stand, the speaker
stand must be carefully placed so it is level and sure to remain stable. Leg spread: 120 cm (47-1/4") or more Cables connected to KC-150 should be given
enough slack to prevent accidents that might result from someone tripping over them. To prevent accidents due to falls, do not place any object on the KC-150
when it's mounted on a speaker stand. Always have at least one other person assist you when mounting the KC-150 on a speaker stand, or when adjusting the
height of the stand while the KC-150 remains mounted on it. When deciding on a stand to use with the KC-150, make sure to pick one that is capable of
supporting its weight.
