PROFESSIONAL SOUND SYSTEM
Speaker System
Model 380-SE
GENERAL DESCRIPTION
The TOA 380-SE is a 3-way loudspeaker system specifically
developed for the reproduction of electronic music. Analog
and digital keyboard synthesizers, drum machines, and guitar
synths require a speaker system with a wide frequency
response, high power capacity and the ability to handle the
extreme dynamic range these instruments produce. The TOA
380-SE was designed to meet these stringent requirements.
The wooden enclosure is sturdily constructed, and equipped
with large side-mounted handles for easy transport.
Interlocking protective corners allow stacking of multiple
speakers, and the polyester finish resists scratches. A
removable black jersey grillecloth completes the high tech
The system consists of a bass reflex enclosure housing a
heavy duty 15-inch woofer, a high-efficiency compression
driver coupled to a constant directivity horn, and an
exponential horn tweeter. The constant directivity horn
ensures a uniform dispersion pattern of 90 degrees horizontal
and 40 degrees vertical, while the tweeter delivers an even
response to 20kHz. This combination results in a smoothness
and clarity that prevents "ear fatigue" even at a high volume
levels. The system is rated at 360 watts continuous program
material.
FEATURES
The rear panel provides ¼ " phone jack inputs for full-range,
biamp, triamp operation. All inputs have parallel bridging jacks
for chaining multiple speakers. The mid- and high-frequency
level controls are recessed and located on the side of the
cabinet near the front for convenient operation.
look of the 380-SE.
1. Extended frequency response for accurate reproduction of
electronic music
2. Power capacity of 360 watts continuous gives wide dynamic
range
3. Constant directivity horn gives coverage of 90 degrees
horizontal by 40 degrees vertical
4. Exponential horn tweeter for clarity smoothness, reduced
"ear fatigue"
5. Level controls recessed and located on side of cabinet for
added convenience.
6. Additional ¼ phone jacks for biamp, triamp, and chaining
7. Rugged enclosure finished in scratch-resistant polyester
with handles, interlocking corners

Input Panel
FULL RANGE INPUT
FULL RANGE OUTPUT
Connects to the output of power amplifier. This is the input
jack when used as a full range speaker system.
Make bridge connection of this output to the full range
input of another system when driving two speaker
systems with one power amplifier.
MULTI-AMP (3-WAY) OUTPUTS
For bridge connection of multi-amp operation.
MULTI-AMP (3-WAY) INPUTS
Connects to corresponding power amplifiers for high, mid
and low frequency ranges when driving the speaker
system with multi-amp operation.
BI-AMP OUTPUTS
For bridge connection of bi-amp operation.
CAUTION:
BI-AMP INPUTS
DO NOT USE THE BI-AMP AND MULTI-AMP JACKS
UNLESS THE SPEAKER SYSTEM IS DRIVEN UNDER
Bl- AND MULTI-AMPLIFIERED SYSTEM. CONNECTING THE AMPLIFIER OUTPUT FOR THE FULL
RANGE TO THE MULTI- AND BI-AMP INPUT JACKS
MAY DAMAGE THE SPEAKER.
Connects to corresponding power amplifiers for high/mid
and low frequency ranges when, driving the speaker
system with bi-amp operation.
Level Controls
Adjusts the sound level of the mid and high
frequencies when driving the speaker system as a
full range speaker system. Make the level setting
according to the environmental conditions, although
almost flat frequency response is obtainable so far
as the level controls remain within the "NORMAL"
ranges.
MID FREQUENCY LEVEL CONTROL
HIGH FREQUENCY LEVEL CONTROL
Frequency Response (1W/1m: Swept 1/3 Octave Pink Noise)
: Mid & high level controls at NORMAL position
: Mid & high level controls at MAX position
