LS8695AX / PLS8695 Assembly Guide
Introduction
SLS line array rigging is designed to provide a quick method of flying and shaping line arrays. This Guide
serves as an overview and provides useful hints regarding array construction. Please read in its entirety before
assembling any rigging.
Safety Responsibilities and Liability
All information in this guide is meant only for the purpose of rigging below the SLS supplied Rigging
Frame. All other rigging is considered part of the venue and/or end-user supplied equipment and is not
addressed in this guide. SLS assumes that a working knowledge of accepted rigging practices and safety will
be applied to all rigging materials and practices employed. This guide is not a comprehensive source for
rigging in general. The user must assume all responsibility for the appropriate use of SLS supplied rigging
hardware and follow at a minimum all applicable laws and regulations in force for each venue.
The weakest component determines the safety of the entire rigging assembly. Prior to flying the array, always
inspect all hardware components for wear, deformations, corrosion and missing or damaged parts. Also
inspect the venue attachment points for wear and confirm that the points are suitably load rated for the
suspended array.
No information contained in this guide is intended as a warranty on the part of SLS. Anyone using this
information assumes all liability arising from it’s use. Product abuse, use of the product not in accordance
with SLS instructions or use in an application which the product has not been designed for is not covered
under any SLS warranty nor is SLS liable for any loss or damage.
Users in other countries should not assume that local regulations are based upon North American practices.
Users should consult with local regulatory authorities for specific codes and/or guidelines.
Replacement Parts
All defective components should be replaced with an SLS approved part. Contact the factory directly at
(417) 883-4549 to obtain approved replacement parts. SLS is not responsible for problems caused by using
non SLS supplied parts for the SLS supplied portion of the rigging.

FT8695 attachment:
Lay the speaker on a surface to provide a comfortable
working height or alternately stand the speaker upright.
Remove the flat-head bolts from the two bottom position
side panels and attach the two FT-LS8695 feet as shown
with the new longer bolts provided with the kit.
Stand speaker upright (if assembling horizontally)
Remove and store
Adjust the leveling feet to stabilize the assembly.
Longer Bolts
provided with kit
Note!
The FT8695 stabilizing kit is
only rated for two LS8695
series units stacked on top
of each other with no other
support.
Leveling Feet

Stacking LS8695-Series for Portable Use:
Attach the FT8695 kit to the bottom LS8695 as previously
shown.
Remove flat-head bolts from the upper sides of the
Remove and store speaker, and attach the MP8695 plates as shown using
the new hardware included in the kit (leave bolts loose
until upper speaker is in place).
Orientate flange inward
Leave loose until
the 2nd speaker is
lifted into position

Stacking LS8695-Series for Portable Use (Continued):
Using two people, lift the second cabinet horizontally until
the back edge is resting on the first (upright) speaker. Lift
(rotate) into place while preventing movement of either
the upright speaker or the lower edge of the upper
speaker.
Align and attach upper speaker to MP8695 using the
longer bolts and secure all hardware.
Tighten all hardware
securely
* An alternate assembly method can be used by laying
down the two LS8695s, attaching them together using the
MP8695 kit, carefully rotating the entire assembly upright
and then attaching the FT8695 to the bottom cabinet.
Level feet to surface
Note!
The FT8695 stabilizing kit is
only rated for two LS8695
series units stacked on top
of each other with no other
support.

Single Unit Permanent Installation:
Remove the flat-head bolts from the upper and lower
sides of the speaker.
Carefully measure and mount the MP8695 brackets on
the wall so that the speaker attachment holes used are
exactly 51.78” apart top to bottom. Place the mounting
flanges inward (outwards may also be used).
Secure the speaker to the MP8695s using the supplied
longer bolts as shown so that the mounting plates do not
protrude above or below.
Not Used
Note!
Shims may be used between
the upper MP8695 plates
and the mounting surface to
achieve small down angles
of 1 to 2 degrees typical in
installations using the
LS8695 Series.
Not Used

Multiple Units in a Permanent Installation:
Remove the flat-head bolts from the upper and lower
sides of all the speakers.
Carefully measure and mount the MP8695 brackets on
the wall so that the speaker attachment holes used are
spaced 51.78” apart. Place the mounting flanges inwards
(outwards may also be used).
Starting from the bottom, secure the first LS8695 to the
brackets.
Using two people, lift the second cabinet until the front
edge is resting on the top of the bottom speaker. Carefully lift (rotate) into place and secure top and bottom.
Continue as needed until the array is complete.
