Safety
DANGER!
Danger for children
Ensure that plastic bags, packaging, etc. are disposed of properly and are not
within reach of babies and young children. Choking hazard!
Ensure that children do not detach any small parts (e.g. knobs or the like) from
the unit. They could swallow the pieces and choke!
Never let children unattended use electrical devices.

Safety instructions
DANGER!
Electric shock caused by high voltages inside
Within the device there are areas where high voltages may be present. Never
remove any covers.
There are no user-serviceable parts inside.
DANGER!
Electric shock caused by short-circuit
Always use proper ready-made insulated mains cabling (power cord) with a pro‐
tective contact plug. Do not modify the mains cable or the plug. Failure to do so
could result in electric shock/death or fire. If in doubt, seek advice from a regis‐
tered electrician.

Safety instructions
CAUTION!
Possible hearing damage
The device can produce volume levels that may cause temporary or permanent
hearing impairment. Over an extended period of time, even levels that seem to
be uncritical can cause hearing damage.
Decrease the volume level immediately if you experience ringing in your ears or
hearing impairment. If this is not possible, keep a greater distance or use suffi‐
cient ear protectors.
NOTICE!
Risk of fire
Do not cover the device nor any ventilation slots. Do not place the device near
any direct heat source. Keep the device away from naked flames.

NOTICE!
Operating conditions
This device has been designed for indoor use only. To prevent damage, never
expose the device to any liquid or moisture. Avoid direct sunlight, heavy dirt, and
strong vibrations.
NOTICE!
Power supply
Before connecting the device, ensure that the input voltage (AC outlet) matches
the voltage rating of the device and that the AC outlet is protected by a residual
current circuit breaker. Failure to do so could result in damage to the device and
possibly injure the user.
Unplug the device before electrical storms occur and when it is unused for long
periods of time to reduce the risk of electric shock or fire.

Installation
Unpack and carefully check that there is no transportation damage before using the unit. Keep
the equipment packaging. To fully protect the device against vibration, dust and moisture
during transportation or storage use the original packaging or your own packaging material
suitable for transport or storage, respectively.
Establish all connections as long as the unit is switched off. Use the shortest possible highquality cables for all connections.
NOTICE!
Possible property damage by magnetic fields
Loudspeakers produce a static magnetic field. Therefore, maintain an appropriate
distance to devices that can be adversely affected or damaged by an external
magnetic field.

4.1 Tips on handling speakers
We recommend you to set up the speakers in a way, that the sound signals can reach the audi‐
ence unobstructedly. It will often be helpful to mount the speakers on tripods. Thus, the sound
will be evenly spread with maximum range throughout the audience area.
Always use high grade cable to connect your equipment. Otherwise you won't reach max‐
imum sound quality.
For optimum results both impedance and power handling of the speakers must match the
requirements of the amplifier. Always follow the technical specifications of the speakers! The
overall impedance of the connected loudspeakers must not deceed the minimum output
impedance of the amp. The amps max. RMS output power should be 50 % above the power
handling capacity of the connected speakers.
If you notice distortion during operation, either the amp or the speaker is overloaded. This may
permanently damage the amp or the speaker. Always reduce the volume when you hear dis‐
tortion.

Connections and operating elements
1 [MODE]
Slide switch to select the operating mode of the integrated sound processor: [T10a], [T12a], [T15a]. Thus, the sound
characteristic is adjusted to the satellite speaker used (midrange and tweeter).
The yellow LEDs indicate the selected mode.
Before you change the mode, please turn off the unit. This will avoid damages.
2 LED [PWR] (blue): Indicates that operating voltage is present.
LED [SIG] (green): Indicates that the input signal is present.
LED [CLIP] (rot). Indicates overload (clipping). In this case, the level of the line input signal is too high.
3 [VOLUME]
Volume control.
4 [LINE IN A]
Balanced line signal input, designed as XLR / 1/4" combo socket.
5 [LINE OUT A]
Line signal output, designed as XLR chassis plug.

Plug and connection assignment
Introduction
This chapter will help you select the right cables and plugs to connect your valuable equip‐
ment in such a way that a perfect sound experience is ensured.
Please note these advices, because especially in ‘Sound & Light’ caution is indicated: Even if a
plug fits into the socket, an incorrect connection may result in a destroyed power amp, a short
circuit or ‘just’ in poor transmission quality!
Balanced and unbalanced trans‐
mission
Unbalanced transmission is mainly used in semi-professional environment and in hifi use.
Instrument cables with two conductors (one core plus shielding) are typical representatives of
the unbalanced transmission. One conductor is ground and shielding while the signal is trans‐
mitted through the core.
Unbalanced transmission is susceptible to electromagnetic interference, especially at low
levels, such as microphone signals and when using long cables.
In a professional environment, therefore, the balanced transmission is preferred, because this
enables an undisturbed transmission of signals over long distances. In addition to the conduc‐
tors ‘Ground’ and ‘Signal’, in a balanced transmission a second core is added. This also transfers
the signal, but phase-shifted by 180°.

Plug and connection assignment
Since the interference affects both cores equally, by subtracting the phase-shifted signals, the
interfering signal is completely neutralized. The result is a pure signal without any noise inter‐
ference.
