TOURING ACTIVE SYSTEM
INTRODUCTION
Thank you for choosing this touring active system.
This Combination Series consists of two TOP System( mid / high units) loading with a 12 woofer, 1.5 driver, and
four Bass system with an onboard 600 W RMS Class D digital Amp.
With same TOP system, 15 subwoofer and 18 subwoofer can be combinated for the touring system.
Connecting and setting up the system is a breeze. It accepts a stereo or mono line-level signal via female XLR input
jacks.Male XLR Thru jacks are provided for daisy-chaining the signal to additional cabinets. Connect this to the
inputs of full-range active speakers. A frequency control from 40Hz to 200Hz allows you to choose the best
crossover point of subwoofer to achieve the best result. A Subwoofer Level control allows you to adjust the balance
between the subwoofer and the fullrange speakers.
The cabinet is constructed with 15mm thick multi-layered birch plywood. Carrying handles are integrated into each
side for easy loading, and casters are attached to the rear for easy transport.
TRANSPORT
To transport the system, simply set the speaker on their casters.

PRECAUTIONS
1. When first powering-up the product, keep the amplifier gain controls all the way off, in order to prevent from being
potentially damaged and from producing annoyed sounds caused by defective cables or hookups. When turning
up gain control, do it gradually, until normal operation is verified. These precautions are necessary for all speaker
system with high power amplifiers, since they have enough power to blow most speakers in abnormal situations.
2. Check the AC Voltage before connectiong the AC plug.

This adjusts the MIC. Level.
5. EQ CONTROL
To adjust the EQ control for setting the balance of system.
6. PEAK INDICATOR
The PEAK indicator built to prevent the amplifier outputs from over driving the transducers. It lights when the limiter
is activated. And it s okay for the PEAK indicator to blink occasionally, but if it blinks frequently or lights continuously,
turn down the level control until the PEAK indicator only blinks occasionally.
7. LOW CUT SWITCH
Use this switch, you can balance this system as a Mid-High by Low Cut Switch on. As a full range system, the switch
should be off.
8. POWER SWITCH
Use this switch to turn the system on and off. Make sure the signal source s level control is turned down before you
turn it on.
9. POWER OUT
This is AC power out to top system or another active system which equipped with powercon-3.
10. POWER IN
This is where you connect the AC linecord to provide AC power. Plug the linecord into an AC socket properly configured for your particular model.
11. FUSE HOLDER
When occur a problem on this appliance, the fuse will be cut off power to prevent from a problem. To replace, use
standard fuse as specified on this appliance.

4. FREQUENCY CONTROL
Use this control, you can adjust the bass frequency from 40Hz to 200Hz to balance the bass and top speakers.
5. LIMIT (PEAK) INDICATOR
The system has a built-in limiter (PEAK) that prevents the amplifier outputs from over driving the transducers.
The PEAK indicator lights when the limiter is activated. It s okay for the PEAK indicator to blink occasionally,
but if it blinks frequently or lights continuously, turn down the level control until the PEAK indicator only blinks
occasionally.

TIPS
Do not expose electronic circuitry to moisture! When you set the system up outdoors, be sure to protect it against rain.
Keep soft drnks, beer and all other liquids well away from the cabinets to protect their electronic components from short
circuits.
Ensure that the ducts on the enclosures rear panels are free of dirt and the devices are ventilated properly. Otherwise,
electronic components may overheat and suffer damage.
TOURING ACTIVE SYSTEM
CONNECTIONS
The system has a female XLR input that accept a balanced line-level signal. When connecting a balanced signal, be
sure it s wired per AES ( Audio Engineering Society) standards:
The Balanced XLR inputs wired
XLR
Hot (+)
Gold (-)
Shield (Ground)
Pin 2
Pin 3
Pin1
If connecting an unbalanced signal to the system balanced input, be sure that the signal high (hot) connection is wired
to Pin 2 and the unbalanced ground connection is wired to the low and the ground connections of the balanced input
(Pin s and 1). If there are ground-loop problem, try connecting the unbalanced ground connection only to the input low
connection ( Pin 3), and leaving the input ground connection disconnected.

The unbalanced XLR connector
The THRU output connectors allow you to connect more than one bass or other active speaker to your system. Simply
plug source (i.e. Mixer output) into the first speaker s Full RANGE INPUT jacks, and patch that speaker s THRU jacks
to the next speaker s INPUT jacks, and so on, daisy-chaining multiply speakers. The THRU jack is wired straight from
the FULL RANGE INPUT connector( there is no electronic circuitry between), so the signal coming out of the THRU jack
is exactly the same as the signal going in.

PLACEMENT
The bass system is designed to sit on the floor, there is no rigging points and is not suitable for rigging. Never attempt
to suspend the system by its handles. As with any powered components, protect the system from exposure to moisture.
If you are setting them up outdoors, make sure they are under cover if you expect rain.
AC POWER
Be sure the system is plugged into an outlet that is able to supply the correct voltage specified for your model. And be
sure the electrical service can supply enough amperage for all the components connected to it. We recommend that a
stiff supply of AC power be used because the amplifiers place high current demands on the AC line. The more power
that is available on the line, the louder the speakers will play and the more peak output power will be available for
cleaner, punchier bass. A suspected problem of poor bass performance is often caused by a week AC supply to the
amplifiers. Never remove the ground pin on the power cord of the bass or any other component. This is very dangerous.
