ELECTRIC DRUMS
A. Electronic Drum Set - single K/KW loudspeaker, with mono sub-mix “to” main PA
This diagram illustrates how a single K/KW loudspeaker can provide stage amplification for an electronic
drum set, while simultaneously sending a balanced “mix” to the main PA mixer.
Directions: Connect the output jack of your electronic drum “module” to Line Input B. If you are also
connecting to the main PA Mixer, the A+B Line Output provides a balanced mix of both inputs on a single
XLR mic cable.
Note: For Line sources we recommend using Input B instead of Input A wherever possible as there is zero
risk of someone inadvertently changing the input gain from “line” to “mic”.
B. Electronic Drum Set - single K/KW loudspeaker, with mono fold-back send “from” PA
This diagram illustrates how a single K/KW loudspeaker can provide stage amplification for an electronic
drum set, while simultaneously receiving a discreet fold-back “mix” from the main PA mixer.
Directions: Connect the ¼” output jack of your electronic drum “module” to the ¼” input of a DI box, then
connect the ¼” output of the DI box to Line Input A of the K/KW loudspeaker. The XLR output of your DI
box will provide a balanced signal to your main PA Mixer on a single XLR mic cable. Connect the PA Mixer
“fold-back” send to Line Input B, then adjust your level balance to suit.
Caution: ensure that the Mic/Line switch on Line Input A is set to “LINE” (“0” on KW models).
C. Electronic Drum Set - single K/KW loudspeaker, single K/KW for stage “fill”
This diagram illustrates how a single K/KW loudspeaker can provide stage amplification for an electronic
drum set, while simultaneously feeding a “Stage-fill” K/KW loudspeaker for the rest of the band, plus
feeding the main PA Mixer.
Directions: Connect the output jack of your electronic drum “module” to Line Input B. The A+B Line Out
provides a balanced mix of both Inputs on a single XLR cable. Connect this balanced A+B Line Out to Line
Input B of your “Stage-Fill” loudspeaker, then adjust your stage level to suit. Because you are sending a
balanced signal into Line Input B, then the balancing feature will “LOOP THRU” to the PA Mixer reducing
buzz and hum.
Note: For Line sources we recommend using Input B instead of Input A wherever possible as there is zero
risk of someone inadvertently changing the input gain from “line” to “mic”.
D. Electronic Drum Set – stereo K/KW loudspeakers, with stereo sub-mix “to” main PA
This diagram illustrates how two K/KW stage loudspeakers can provide stereo stage amplification for an
electronic drum set, while simultaneously sending a balanced stereo feed the main PA Mixer.
Directions: Connect the Left output of your electronic drum “module” to Line Input B of the left K/KW
loudspeaker and the Right output to Line Input B of the right K/KW loudspeaker. This will ensure that any
stereo panning or effects will be heard on stage in pure stereo. If you are also connecting to the main PA
Mixer, the A+B Line Outputs of each loudspeaker provides a balanced mix of both inputs (in pure stereo)
on a pair of XLR mic cables.
Note: For Line sources we recommend using Input B instead of Input A wherever possible as there is zero
risk of someone inadvertently changing the input gain from “line” to “mic”.
E. Electronic Drum Set - stereo K/KW loudspeakers, with mono fold-back send “from” PA
This diagram illustrates how two K/KW stage loudspeakers can provide stereo stage amplification for
an electronic drum set, while simultaneously receiving a discreet fold-back “mix” from the PA mixer and
sending a balanced stereo feed the main PA Mixer.
Directions: Connect the ¼” stereo output jacks of your electronic drum “module” to the ¼” input of a
stereo DI box (or pair of mono DI boxes), then connect the ¼” stereo outputs of the DI box to Line Input
A of the left K/KW loudspeaker and Line Input A of the right K/KW loudspeaker. This will ensure that
any panning or effects will be heard on stage in pure stereo. The XLR outputs of your stereo DI box will
provide a stereo balanced signal to your main PA Mixer on a pair of XLR mic cables. Connect the PA Mixer
“fold-back” send to Line Input B of one K/KW loudspeaker, and simply LOOP THRU to Line Input B of the
other K/KW loudspeaker, then adjust your level balance to suit.
Caution: ensure that the Mic/Line switch on Line Input A is set to “LINE” (“0” on KW models).
1. All Drums to Subwoofer
This diagram illustrates how simple it is to add a subwoofer to a K/KW stage amplification system. In this
option the entire drum “mix” output from the module is fed into the Subwoofer.
2. Bass Drum only to Subwoofer
This diagram illustrates how simple it is to add a subwoofer to a K/KW stage amplification system. In this
option only the Bass Drum output from the module is fed into the Subwoofer.
Note: We H3ly encourage the user to experiment with both options, and decide which method suits their
needs the best.
