GEO Technology is radically new thinking
The GEO R&D Project has, to date, resulted in the following patent applications:
The GEO Hyperboloid Reflective Wavesource™ differs radically from the megaphone-variant type horns
you know and love (or hate). “Tried and true” methods will produce entirely unexpected results. HRW
technology produces precise and predictable results.
The Configurable Directivity Flange. A waveguide that allows the operator to alter its behaviour. An
unprecedented NEXO development that is easy to use – once you know how and when.
The Phase Directivity Device needs no operator input to function, but it is reassuring to know that the
coupling of the midrange of the system is considered as important as the high frequencies…
DSP-driven Directional Sub-bass devices are a new approach to controlling LF/VLF acoustic energy.
GEO is not hard to use when you understand how…
The technology behind GEO is revolutionary, but it is grounded in years of practical experience with the
problems of delivering high quality professional sound to large audiences at high SPL levels. The GEO
toolbox includes NS-1 - a simple yet powerful and highly predictive design tool. The array assembly
system is keyed to the design software and will easily enable you to deploy your design with great
precision. NEXO Digital TDcontroller technology provide driver protection and system optimization for the
GEO M and MSUB series.
GEO is a high precision system
The GEO HRW™ controls acoustic energy more precisely than other multiple element waveguides. It
also makes GEO less forgiving of mistakes. Whilst conventional horns never combine into a coherent
array, they may deliver acceptable results even if the design and deployment of the system is less than
optimal. This is not the case with GEO where careless installation produces catastrophic results.
A GEO Tangent Array is not a “line array”
GEO Technology is equally effective in designing and deploying tangent curved vertical arrays. For best
results in a specific application the user needs to know how multi-speaker arrays interact with audience
geometry, along with the benefits and drawbacks of curved vertical arrays and horizontal arrays.
Curved tangent arrays require different design techniques
In the past, sound reinforcement professionals have worked with horizontal arrays that use conventional
horns to deliver [more or less] ‘equal power to equal angles’. Curved vertical arrays are now designed to
deliver [more or less] equal power to equal areas’. When arrays use conventional horns, the lack of
precision, overlap and interference masks errors in array design and aiming. The highly precise GEO
wavesource responds accurately, consistently and predictably to the design and deployment of a curved
vertical tangent array. This is why the GEO rigging system is designed to control angular splay to 0.1°
precision.
GEO curved tangent arrays require different operational techniques
Over the years, system designers and operators have developed a number of signal processing
techniques to disguise and partly overcome the limitations of horn design. “Frequency shading,”
“amplitude shading,” “High Frequency compensation”, all of these are tools of the advanced sound system
operator. NONE OF THESE TECHNIQUES ARE APPLICABLE TO GEO TANGENT ARRAYS. Instead
of enhancing the array’s performance they will severely degrade it.
Take time to learn how to get great results with GEO Technology. It is an investment that will pay off in
more satisfied clients, more efficient operating procedures and more recognition for your skill as a sound
system designer and operator. A comprehensive understanding of GEO theory, tangent arrays, and
specific features of the GEO M Series will help you to operate your system at its full potential.

BASIC PRECAUTIONS
Do not open the speaker system or attempt to disassemble the internal parts or modify them in any way.
The speaker system contains no user-serviceable parts. If it should appear to be malfunctioning or
damaged, discontinue use immediately and have it inspected by qualified NEXO service personnel.
Water exposure: Do not expose the speaker system to direct rain, do not use it near water or in wet
conditions. Do not place containers with liquid on speaker system as they might spill into openings. If any
liquid such as water seeps into the speaker system, have it inspected by qualified NEXO personnel.
Sun exposure: Do not expose the speaker system to direct sun.
Operating temperature with temperate climate: 0°C to +40°C (-20°C to +60°C for storage).
SYSTEM DEPLOYMENT SAFETY RULES
Read User Manual before deployment. Before use of enclosed speaker system, please
ensure that anyone involved in system deployment understands the rigging – stacking –
pole mounting safety rules as described in the speaker system User Manual. Failure to
do this exposes people to potential injury or death.
Please check the web site nexo-sa.com for the latest update.
Always consult qualified NEXO personnel if the device installation requires construction work and make
sure to observe the following precautions:
Mounting precautions
-
choose mounting hardware and an installation location that can support 4 times the weight of the
speaker system;
-
do not use speaker system handles for suspended installation;
-
do not expose speaker system to excessive dust or vibration, or extreme cold or heat to prevent
possibility of component damage;
-
do not place the speaker system in an unstable position from which it might fall accidentally;
-
if speaker systems use a stand, ensure that stand specifications are adapted, and that stand height
does not exceed 1.40m/55”; never move the stand while the speaker is in position.
-
in case of wind greater than 8 on Beaufort scale (72km/h – 45mph), a touring system has to be landed
or an additional securing has to be implemented.
-
for fixed installations, wind loading has to be taken into account in accordance to the national
standards.
Connection and powering precautions
-
remove all connected cables before moving the speaker system;
-
turn off AC power of all power amplifier units before connecting the speaker system;
-
when turning on the AC power to the audio system, always turn on the power amplifier last; when
turning the AC power off, always turn off the power amplifier first;
-
when used in cold conditions, a gradual power ramp up should applied to the system on an 5 mn
period to allow the loudspeaker components to stabilize during the very first minutes of usage.
Inspect the speaker system periodically.

HIGH SOUND PRESSURE LEVELS
Exposure to extremely high noise levels may cause permanent hearing loss.
Individuals vary considerably in susceptibility to noise-induced hearing loss but nearly
everyone will lose some hearing if exposed to sufficiently intense noise for a sufficient
period of time. The U.S. Government’s Occupational and Health Administration (OSHA)
has specified the following permissible noise level exposures: Sound Duration Per
Day In Hours
Sound Level dBA, Slow Response
8
90
6
92
4
95
3
97
2
100
1½
102
1
105
½
110
¼ or less
115
According to OSHA, any exposure in excess of the above permissible limits could result in some hearing
loss. Ear plugs or protectors to the ear canals or over the ears must be worn when operating this
amplification system in order to prevent permanent hearing loss, if exposure is in excess of the limits as
set forth above. To ensure against potentially dangerous exposure to high sound pressure levels, it is
recommended that all persons exposed to equipment capable of producing high sound pressure levels
such as this amplification system be protected by hearing protectors while this unit is in operation.

Speaker connection
GEO M10 and MSUB15 are connected with Speakon NL4FC plugs (not supplied). A wiring diagram is
printed on the connection panel located on the back of each cabinet. The 4 pins of the Speakon sockets
identified in / out are connected in parallel within the enclosure.
Either connector can be used to connect amplifier or to link to an additional GEO M10 cabinet or to link
to an optional MSUB15 (if present). Therefore, a single 4-conductor cable can connect two amplifier
channels to various GEO M10s and/or MSUB15 subwoofers.

Cabling
NEXO recommends the exclusive use of multi-conductor cables to connect the system: the cable kit is
compatible with all the cabinets, and there is no possible confusion between LF, MF and HF sections.
Cable choice consists mainly of selecting cables of the correct sectional dimension (size) in relation to
the load resistance and the cable length. Too small a cable section will increase both its serial resistance
and its capacitance; this reduces the electrical power delivered to the loudspeaker and can also induce
response (damping factor) variations.
For a serial resistance less or equal to 4% of the load impedance (damping factor = 25), the recommended
cable length is given by:
Lmax = Z x S
S in mm2, Z in Ohm, Lmax in meters
The table below indicates these values, for 3 common sizes.

Maximum allowed length is 4 times recommended length.
Example:
GEO M10 module has a 8  nominal impedance. When connecting 4 modules in parallel, total load
impedance become 2.
Recommended length for 4mm2 / (AWG#10) is 8 m / 26 ft, maximum allowed length is 32 m / 105 ft.
IMPORTANT
Long speaker cables induce capacitive effects – up to hundreds of pF depending on the
quality of the cable - with a low-pass effect on high frequencies. If long speaker cables
must be used, ensure that they do not remain coiled while in use.

NS-1 SIMULATION SOFTWARE
NS-1 SIMULATION SOFTWARE
NS-1 software is a R&D simulation tool derived application. It processes measured speaker data with
complex mathematical algorithms to assist the user in optimizing system design. Due to the complexity
of the interaction of multiple cabinets, it is simply not possible to reliably design curved vertical arrays
without using the processing power of a computer to predict the optimum array structure for a given
audience geometry. The design logic is far more complex than looking at a section drawing of the venue,
measuring the overall angle needed to cover the audience from the cluster location, and dividing by 12
degrees to determine the required amount number of GEO M1012 cabinets.
NS-1 is an easy to use tool that allows to shape the energy leaving the cluster to fit the audience. It
predicts pressure levels radiated from the system to ensure enough cabinets are provided for the
application, as well as mechanical constraints for safe flown systems.
In addition, it provides mechanical information for all clusters in agreement with Structural Analysis
Reports (available in the Help section): dimensions, weight, gravity center position, forces, moments,
working load and safety factor.
GEO M10 and MSUB15 Structural Analysis Report is currently being certified by German Certification
Organization RWTUV systems GmbH.
NS-1 installation package includes all NEXO User Manuals, Structural Analysis Reports and Certificates
PDF files (which can be found in the last section of User Manuals).
NS-1 is a freeware available on nexo-sa.com
IMPORTANT
Never install a GEO M10 and/or MSUB15 cluster without checking its acoustical
performances and mechanical safety in NS-1 prior to installation.
Any question or bug report please contact technical@nexo.fr

CONFIGURABLE DIRECTIVITY DEVICE

Page 17/79
CONFIGURABLE DIRECTIVITY DEVICE
The GEO Wavesource controls dispersion of acoustic energy using a hyperboloid acoustical reflector in
the “coupling plane” (the vertical plane of a curved vertical tangent array) and a diffraction slot in the “noncoupling plane” (the horizontal plane of a curved vertical tangent array). The patented Configurable
Directivity Device consists of flanges that alter the diffraction slot’s exit flare rate.
5.1
Installing & removing GEO’s Configurable Directivity Devices
GEO M10 are shipped in the 80° dispersion configuration, 120° CDDTM flanges are an optional accessory
(GMT-FLGM10).
To change dispersion in the non-coupling plane to 120°:
-
Pull the lever to remove the grille on the side (attached with a sling);
-
Position the CDDTM flanges on the waveguide output magnetic clips;
-
Reinstall the grille and lock it with the lever
To remove the 120° CDDTM flanges:
-
Pull the lever to remove the grille on the side (attached with a sling)
-
Remove the CDDTM flanges from the waveguide output magnetic clips
-
Reinstall the grille and lock it with the lever
NB: In case of GEO M10-I versions, proceed as above by removing the side grille screws
Page 18/79
5.2
CONFIGURABLE DIRECTIVITY DEVICE
When & where to use Configurable Directivity flanges
The diagrams show audience area coverage for a stereo system. While the GEO cluster will deliver even
SPL from the front to the rear of this audience area, there are “holes” near the front in the centre and at
the outside edges. We cannot fill the outside coverage gaps without enlarging the centre gap, and vice
versa (left figure below).
If 120° Configurable Directivity Devices are installed at the bottom cabinet of the clusters, coverage will
look more like the pattern in right figure below.
-6dB coverage, all GEO M10 in 80° configuration
-6dB coverage, bottom GEO M10 in 120° configuration
In curved vertical arrays, the 120° Configurable Directivity Device can be used:

On the bottom row of curved vertical arrays, to fill in coverage gaps in the front rows.

On all rows of curved vertical arrays, in cases where 120° of horizontal coverage is preferred
to 80°.
IMPORTANT
Installing or removing one of the two flanges anticipating asymmetrical coverage will
degrade both coverage and frequency response.

Page 19/79
GEO M10 HARDWARE SETUP PROCEDURE
Before proceeding with assembly of GEO M10 & MSUB15 arrays, please ensure that the components
are present and undamaged. A component list is appended to this manual. In the event of any shortage,
please contact your supplier.
For maximum efficiency the GEO M10 & MSUB15 rigging system requires three experienced persons for
set-up: typically one motor hoist operator, and one operator per side of the array. Good synchronisation
and crosscheck between the operators are key elements for a reliable and safe set-up.
6.1
SAFETY FIRST
GEO M10 & MSUB15 Rigging System structural computations and related documents are available in
NS-1 or at Nexo (info@nexo.fr) upon request.
We include this section to remind you of safe practice when flying the GEO M10 & MSUB15 system.
Please read it carefully. However, user must always apply his or her knowledge, experience and common
sense. If in any doubt, seek advice from your supplier or NEXO agent.
This manual offers guidance only for GEO M10 & MSUB15 loudspeaker systems. References in this
manual to other rigging equipment such as motor hoists, steels, shackles etc. are made to clarify the
description of rigging procedures. The user must ensure that operators are properly trained by other
agencies in the use of these items.
The GEO M10 & MSUB15 Rigging System has been optimised for the deployment of curved vertical
tangent arrays of GEO M10 & MSUB15 loudspeakers. Angle adjustment between cabinets has been
limited to specific settings to ensure correct acoustic coupling.
The GEO M10 & MSUB15 Rigging System is a professional precision tool set, and should be handled
with extreme care. Only persons who are fully conversant with the operation of the GEO M10 & MSUB15
Rigging System and provided with suitable safety equipment should deploy GEO Arrays. Misuse of the
GEO M10 & MSUB15 Rigging System could lead to dangerous consequences.
Used and maintained correctly, the GEO M10 & MSUB15 Rigging System will give many years of reliable
service in portable systems. Please take the time to read and understand this manual. Always use NS-1
to determine the optimum angle settings for a particular venue, hang point and curved vertical GEO M10
& MSUB15. Applied forces and moments are strongly cabinet quantity and angle configuration
dependent. Cluster configuration must be implemented and validated in NS-1 prior to installation.
6.1.1
Flown Systems Safety
Always inspect all the rigging components and cabinets for damage before assembly. Pay special
attention to the lifting points, and safety clips. If you suspect that any of the components are damaged or
defective, DO NOT USE THE AFFECTED PARTS. Contact your supplier for replacements.
Read this manual carefully. Also be familiar with the manuals and safe working procedures for any
ancillary equipment that will be used with the GEO M10 & MSUB15 Rigging System.
Applied forces and moments are strongly cabinet quantity and angle configuration dependent. Cluster
configuration must be implemented and validated in NS-1 prior to installation.
Ensure that all local and National regulations regarding the safety and operation of flying equipment are
understood and adhered to. Information on these regulations can usually be obtained from Local
Government Offices.
When deploying a GEO M10 & MSUB15 system always wear protective headwear, footwear and eye
protection.
Do not allow inexperienced persons to handle a GEO M10 & MSUB15 system. Installation personnel
should be trained in loudspeaker flying techniques and should be fully conversant with this manual.
Page 20/79
GEO M10 HARDWARE SETUP PROCEDURE
Ensure that motor hoists, hoist control systems and ancillary rigging components are currently certified
as safe and that they pass a visual inspection prior to use.
Ensure that public and personnel are not allowed to pass beneath the system during the installation
process. The work area should be isolated from public access.
Never leave the system unattended during the installation process.
Do not place any object, no matter how small or light, on top of the system during the installation
procedure. The object may fall when the system is flown and is likely to cause injury.
Secondary safety steels must be installed once the system has been flown to the operating height.
Secondary steels must be fitted irrespective of requirements of the local safety standards applicable to
the territory.
Ensure that the system is secure and prevented from pivoting around the motor hoist.
Avoid any form of excessive dynamic loading to the assembly (structural computations on GEO M10 &
MSUB15 Rigging System are based on a 1/1.2 factor for hoist or motor acceleration).
NEVER attach any item to the GEO M10 & MSUB15 system other than the GEO M10 & MSUB15
accessories.
When flying outdoor systems ensure that the system is not exposed to excessive wind or snow loads and
is protected from rainfall.
In case of wind greater than 8 on Beaufort scale (72km/h – 45mph), a touring system has to be landed or
an additional securing has to be implanted.
For fixed installations, wind loading has to be taken into account in accordance to the national standards.
The GEO M10 & MSUB15 Rigging System requires regular inspection and testing by a competent test
centre. NEXO recommend that the system is load tested and certified annually or more frequently if local
regulations require.
When de-rigging the system ensure that the same duty of care is given to the procedure as for the
installation. Pack GEO M10 & MSUB15 components carefully to prevent damage in transit.
6.1.2
Ground Stacking Safety
Statistically, many more injuries occur due to unstable ground stacked PA systems than those associated
with flown systems. There are several reasons for this fact, however the message is clear:
Always survey the supporting structure upon which a ground stack is to be built. Always look beneath PA
wings to inspect the deck support and if necessary ask for the stage scrims and dressings be removed to
allow access.
If the stage surface slopes, as it does in some theatres, ensure that the system is prevented from sliding
forwards due to vibration. This may require the fitting of timber battens to the stage floor.
For outdoor systems ensure that that the system is protected from wind forces which might cause the
ground stack to become unstable. Wind forces can be huge, especially upon large systems, and should
never be underestimated. Observe meteorological forecasts, calculate the “worst case” effect upon the
system prior to erection and ensure that the system is secured appropriately.
Take care when stacking cabinets. Always employ safe lifting procedures and never attempt to build
stacks without sufficient personnel and equipment.
Never allow anyone, whether operators, artists or members of the public to climb onto a ground stacked
PA system. Anyone who needs to climb over 2m (6 ft) high should be fitted with suitable safely equipment
including a clip-on harness. Please refer to local Health and Safety legislation in your territory. Your dealer
can help with advice on access to this information.
GEO M10 HARDWARE SETUP PROCEDURE

Apply the same attention to all safety matters when de-stacking systems.
Be aware that safety procedures are as important in the truck and in the warehouse as they are at the
venue.

Testing and Maintenance of the system
General: GEO is a precision piece of equipment and requires regular attention to maintenance in order
to give long and reliable service. NEXO recommends regular testing of loudspeaker rigging components,
preferably using a suitable test rig coupled with a visual inspection.
Fasteners: there are several critical points in the MSUB15 and GEO M10 cabinets.
Of primary concern are:
a) The screws or magnets attaching the grid to the cabinet
b) The machine screws attaching the connecting plates to the cabinet.
c) The magnets attaching the directivity flanges to the front of the cabinet.
These fasteners should be regularly checked and tightened as necessary.
Cleaning: The exterior of the cabinet and the rigging system can be cleaned with a damp cloth soaked in
mild soapy water. On no account use solvent based cleaners, which may damage the finish of the cabinet
After cleaning, the rigging system must be treated with a suitable lubricant to prevent rusting. NEXO
recommends the use of Scottoil FS365 which is a water-based lubricant with a mixture of machine oil,
surfactant and anti-rust treatment.

SYSTEM CHECK ALIGNMENT GUIDELINES
SYSTEM CHECK ALIGNMENT GUIDELINES
The NEXO TD Controllers factory delay presets are optimised to provide the best possible crossover
between the GEO M10 and MSUB15 systems. The reference point for this adjustment is the front of each
cabinet. (This means that the internal delays needed to achieve a correct time alignment are set for
cabinets standing next to each other with both fronts aligned). We recommend that the system is adjusted
so that arrivals from GEO M10 and MSUB15 are coincident at a fairly distant listening position.
7.1
GEO M10 Vertical Cluster design
Cluster design must be done with NS, which provides very intuitive and fast method to determine all
cluster geometry parameters in relation to venue where cluster is implemented.
NS-1 is a freeware available for all Nexo users at nexo-sa.com
IMPORTANT
Never install a GEO M10 and/or MSUB15 cluster without checking its acoustical
performances and mechanical safety in NS-1 prior to installation.
Please contact your local distributor for assistance and/or training NS-1
7.2
Stacked MSUB15 and Flown GEO M10
In the example below, r1 being the distance from GEO M10 array to listener position, and r2 being the
distance from MSUB15 to listener position, the distance difference is then r1–r2 (specified meters or feet).
r1 > r2, the delay should be set on the MSUB15 NEXO TDcontroller channel.
r1 < r2, the delay should be set on the GEO M10 NEXO TDcontroller channel
To convert the result in time delay (specified in seconds), apply:
t = (r1-r2)/Cr1 and r2 in meters, C (sound speed)  343 m/S.
Set the units to meters, feet or seconds according to your preference). Delay will have to be adjusted
according to the distance difference r1–r2 (see figure below).

Driving the MSUB15s from the AUX send
It is quite common to use the AUX send of a mixing desk to drive the Sub section of a PA system. This
gives the mixing engineer more flexibility to set the level of the subbass relative to the main PA, apply
special effects, or to use a different EQ on the Sub. However, it also raises some serious issues for the
performance & safety of the system (mostly time alignment).
At NEXO, great care is taken to design optimum phase alignment from one octave above to one octave
below the crossover frequency point. By doing so, drivers are working perfectly together and providing
the best efficiency possible. It is then up to the user to adjust the delay on the NEXO TD Controllers to
match the physical path difference of the different systems. It is thus possible to get a well adjusted
system, even without measuring instruments.
If MSUB15s are driven form an AUX output, NXAMPs are fed with two signals coming from different
sources. If those two sources (MAIN output & AUX send) are not exactly in phase, delay is introduced
into the crossover between the GEO M10 array and the MSUB15s. It is then mandatory to use proper
measurement tool to optimize phase response.
Why is it unlikely that AUX and MAIN outputs have the same phase?

Signal paths are likely to be different; any filter modifying the bandwidth and EQ of the signal
is also affecting the phase.
Example: a 24dB/oct high pass filter set at 15Hz is affecting amplitude of the signal by only
0.6dB at 30Hz, but the phase shift is 90°!! At 100Hz we can still measure 25° of phase shift.

Limiting bandwidth with a low pass filter can introduce a phase difference of up to 180°
(completely out of phase) at the cross over point.

If the signal is passing though any digital equipment, between 1.4ms and 2.2ms is being
added (around 70° phase shift at 100Hz) due solely to the converter delay! The additional
delay due to the processing itself (look ahead compressor, delay…) can be quite important
as well.
If both outputs are not measured in the actual configuration, it is very likely that phase alignment will not
be correct.
Consequences of badly aligned systems
Mis-aligned systems have lower efficiency: i. e. for the same SPL the system will have to be driven harder,
activating the displacement & temperature protection at lower output levels. Both sound quality and
reliability will decrease as the system is stressed.
Precautions & Checks
Before using the AUX of a mixing desk, ensure that MAIN and AUX outputs are in phase;
Always apply identical EQ or processing on both channels, so that the phase relationship will not be
altered;
Never add additional low pass filtering on the SUB or high pass filtering on the main system;
Inverting polarity on one channel should always result in a massive difference near the crossover point.
If that is not the case, the system is no longer aligned.
7.4
Recommended installation tools and equipment
Tape measure – should be 30m/100ft in length and be of durable fibre material. Have one per array
available to speed up the installation process.
Spirit level – used to ascertain the trueness of the surface from which the angle measurements originate.
Rangefinder measuring device – either a Disto type laser measure or an optical laser rangefinder can be
used. Devices such as the Bushnell ‘Yardage Pro’ sports rangefinders provide sufficiently accuracy and
are easy to use. They have the additional advantage of working very well in bright sunlight.

SYSTEM CHECK ALIGNMENT GUIDELINES
Electronic calculator with trigonometric functions to calculate the height from ground level to points in the
room. The formula to calculate height of a point from measured angle and distance is:
Height of point = Sin(vertical angle in degrees) x distance to point
NB: Take care when using spreadsheets as they calculate using radians by default. To convert degrees
to radians use the formula:
Angle (in radians)=3.142 x Angle (in degrees)/180
Computer – Laptop or Desktop PC running Windows 8 with the current version of NEXO NS-1 installed.
It is not possible to configure a GEO tangent array properly without using NS-1. Note that, when NS-1
designs are prepared prior to arrival at the venue, it is often necessary to modify or update the design to
accommodate special circumstances. A PC is absolutely essential to make such changes.
Audio Analysis Software – recommended but not absolutely essential, programs such as SystuneTM,
SmaartTM enable rapid and detailed analysis of the installation. Consider taking a training course in using
one of these tools if you are not already competent with them – it will pay dividends in increased
performance of the system.

GEO M10 – MSUB15 System Check List
It is essential to execute all these check steps prior to perform a sound check on the “front end” to the
system. Following this checklist step by step will prevent many troubles and will save time in the end.
Are the speakers properly connected and angled ?
Attach the first series of modules to the bumper.
Before flying, verify that all channels of all modules are functioning properly.
To check that all elements have the proper amplitude and phase, you should listen to the upper boxes at
a close distance (<1 meter). You should be able to move from the top to the bottom of the cluster without
hearing any change in the tonal balance.
Verify that the angle settings are the same on both sides of each module.
Raise the bumper, attach the next series of modules and repeat the above checks.
Make sure that these series of modules sum properly with the modules above them.
When all the modules are flown, check that the aiming angles are the same left and right.
Make sure that multiple GEO M10 and MSUB15 are summing properly: 6 dB gain per doubling of quantity.
Final Pre-Sound Check Check
Play a CD track mono left, and then right: both sides must sound strictly identical. When listening in the
centre between Left and Right GEO M10s, everything from LF to HF should be located to the “phantom
centre” position. If not, repeat the above check sequence to identify the source of the problem.
