2 - Introduction
Creating a discreet sound system with both an attractive design and high-quality output regardless
of its location or usage is one of the hardest challenges to face.
This concept is appealing, for both permanent and temporary installations. Our CUBsat4 speaker
can be added to any regular multi-source installation, of course, but it can also be part of Line
Array columns thanks to its smart coupling and angulation system, with up to 8 speakers per
Under this scenario, no need for a multitude of amplifiers or power sources since each speaker
features its own built-in cabling system: only one amplifier is required to power up both your
columns of 8 x CUBsat4.
3 - Quick start
When mounting a speaker onto any stand, always ensure that the stand is on a fiat, level sur-face,
with the legs fully extended. Be sure to check that the maximum load weight for the stands is
greater than the weight of the ARRAY SYSTEMS loudspeaker. Never use a stand with a maximum
load weight lower than the speaker. Do not attempt to mount more than one speaker on a stand
at one time.
The ARRAY SYSTEMS loudspeakers are heavy. It is recommended that a second person to help
place the cabinet on a stand.
When the speaker is placed on a stand, always check the integrity and center of gravity of the
If the speaker can be tipped easily, or the pole is swaying, it is recommended that you lower the
height of the stand. Position the stand and route cables so that the performers and the audience
cannot tip over or trip on the system.

Versatile mounting options
Compared to many other speaker designs, the satellite Series is remarkably easy to
install in several ways. It can be hung easily with chains, strong wires and cables using
the accessory brackets.
There are also options for hanging with a pre-install frame by itself or configured with a
subwoofer. There are also other options including ceiling and wall brackets as well as an
adapter for use with a dedicated stand.
The bracket support wall and ceiling mounting with most 8 modules. The direction and
angle can be adjusted from any side.

Connect Manner
1- Align two units to make the latch hole in the same line. Insert the latch and lock the
screw tightly.
2- Adjust the angles of the unit (four angles: 0°-4°-8°- 12 can be adjusted), insert the
rear connecting pin into the related slot and put the latch into the hole.
You can insert each three different holes when connecting the rear bracket. You can
obtain different sound by different angles.

Adjustable sound dispersion (for example four pcs)
A system in configured by vertically stacking four speaker modules with a total driver
complement of four woofers and 12 tweeters positioned along the baffle surface,
this configuration allows the variable directivity control and low-frequency dispersion
control comparable to using a large constant-directivity horn speaker. A choice of four
directivities angles (0, 4, 8 and 12 degrees) can be employed as needed. For instance,
a specific directivity angle, or each module can have its directivity independently set
for a specific coverage requirement. When two or multiple modules are connected to
configure an arc, they effectively function as an immense single speaker controlling
directivity for considerably lower frequencies. As a result, public address functions
demonstrate optimal intelligibility even in environments with long reverb times.
32° angle
48° angle
Minimal reflective effects
Whether mounted on the wall or ceiling, the satellite is remarkably free from the comb
filter and interference effects often encountered with other speaker designs. It can
therefore produce more low frequency output even when mounted on the wall or ceiling.

Configuring the CUBsub112 / CUBsub208 Subwoofer
Before you start plugging in cables, you should take a minute
to decide how you want to inter-face your new subwoofer. Most
system set-ups fall into one of two categories: Mono or Stereo
sub operation
Mono Sub Operation
ln most cases, a common (mono) sub bass setup is preferable.
Low frequencies produced by a sub-woofer tend to be nondirectional. Since low frequency waves take so much space
to develop, it is difficult for the ear to tell if sub bass is coming
from the left or right side (unless you are in a very large room).
Because of this phenomenon, just about all sub bass material is
mixed in mono.
Stereo Sub Operation
ln larger rooms, as well as in theaters and theme park installations
(for low frequency special audio effects), two or more subwoofers
can be used in stereo. For additional low-end, you can daisy
chain a pair of subwoofers to each side of your speaker system
using the parallel outputs.
Positioning the Subwoofer
The placement of the subwoofer can affect the overall performance
of your system since room acoustics may create standing waves,
an acoustical phenomenon that causes certain bass frequencies
to sound louder. Here are a few points you should consider when
setting up your system, which can help you achieve optimal
performance in your space.
The ideal placement of the subwoofer is as close to the main front
of house speakers as possible, in order to blend the satellites and
subwoofer. Mounting the satellite speakers on top of the subwoofer
allows you to align the drivers. The closer the subwoofer is to
a wall, the louder the bass frequencies will sound, and you can
adjust the mix between the subwoofer and satellite speakers by
moving the subwoofer closer to and further from a wall.
Avoid placing the subwoofer in a corner. This can make the
subwoofer appear to be louder, but only for a limited
frequency band, and will make the mix sound «boomy» and
not well defined. The best way to increase the overall
level of bass is to add a second subwoofer.
