Void BASYS B12, BASYS B15 V2 Owner's manual

Void BASYS B12, BASYS B15 V2 Owner's manual
Getting Started
1. Carefully unpack all the speaker cabinets, accessories and the B3 or B4 amplifier.
Check that you have all of the following :
B15 Sub cabinets
B12 Mid Hi cabinets
B3 or B4 power amplifier
Speaker poles
Wheels for B15 cabinets (4 with brakes)
Metal corners for the B15 cabinet
B15 top hat blanking plates
8 meter speaker cables
2 meter speaker cables
Screw pack
2. Mount the B12 cabinets on top of the B15 cabinets by using the supplied poles.
3. Connect the left and right outputs from your mixer to the CH1 and CH2 inputs on the rear of the B3 amplifier.
4. Connect one of the thick 8 meter speaker cables to the SUB & HI, CH1 output on the B3 amplifier. Connect the
other end of this cable to one of the speakons on a B15 cabinet. Both speakons on a B15 are wired together, so
you can connect to either speakon. Connect the other 8 meter cable to the SUB & HI, CH2 output on the B3 and
its other end to the remaining B15 cabinet in the same way.
5. Use a 2 meter speaker cable and connect one end to the unused speakon on the B15 and the other end to the
B12 cabinet. Use the lower speakon that has not been blanked off. The upper blanked off speakon is for linking to
another B12 or for connection in a permanent installation via pins +1 and -1. If you do link to other B12 cabinets
make sure you only connect via the top input speakons on both B12 cabinets.
6. Switch on your mixer, connect the power lead to the B3 and switch it on by turning the power on control clockwise.
Set both CH1 and CH2 levels controls to the same position just below maximum and set the SUB level control
around half way. Slowly turn up the output on your mixer and set it to a moderate listening level. Use the SUB
level control to either increase or decrease the level of bass to mid hi. Once the desired setting has been found,
control the systems output level from your mixer.
7. If your Basys system is going to be used in a fixed installation, the top hat on the B15 cabinet can be replaced by
the top hat blanking plate found in the accessory pack. For road or mobile use, consider fitting the wheels and metal
corners to the B15 cabinets. Screws and bolts for the corners and wheels can be found in the screw pack. An
optional road bag kit can be purchased and includes covers for two B12's and two B15 cabinets.
Do Not connect the 8 meter cable from the SUB & HI outputs on a B3 amplifier directly to a B12 cabinet.
Always connect to a B12 via a B15 when using the SUB & HI outputs on a B3 amp.

System Connections
The supplied cables enable a whole system to be connected from the Sub&Hi outputs on a B3 amplifier.
Make sure you use the correct cable from the amplifier to B15 and from the B15 to B12.
Use the 8 meter cable to connect from the Sub&Hi out on the B3 amplifier to a speakon on the B15.
Use the 2 meter cable to connect from the spare speakon on the B15 to the lower speakon on the B12.
When linking a B12 cabinet to another B12 cabinet, use the top speakon as the link out and use the other
B12's top speakon as the input. A cable wired +1, -1 to +1, -1 or +2, -2 to +2, -2 can be used to connect the
two B12's when linking via the top input speakons.
The B15 is wired +1 and -1 for its input. The top B12 input can get its input from both +1 and -1, or +2 and 2. The bottom B12 input is wired +2 and -2 for its input.
The speakons on the B15 are wired in parallel, so either speakon can be used as the input, the other speakon
can be used as a link output. The same applies to the B12, but only pins +2 and -2 are linked from the
bottom to top speakons. In an installation where B12's will not be connected via a B15 cabinet, use pins
+1 and -1 on the top speakon input on the B12 and the Hi outputs on the B3.
The B12 enclosures logo is spring loaded and rotatable. This allows the logo to be displayed upright
when the cabinet is used in either vertical or horizontal positions.
1. Install B12 and B15 enclosures in a dry environment, do not expose the cabinets to rain or moisture.
2. When connecting the B12 to the B3 amplifier do not connect the B12 to the Sub&Hi out directly.
Connect via a B15 or to the CH1 and CH2 Hi outputs using the B12's top input speakon.
3. If connecting a B12 to a B15 a 4 way speakon to speakon cable must be used from the B3 to the B15. If a
4 way cable is not used the B12 will not be connected.
4. Only use a speakon to speakon cable wired +2 and -2 to +2 and -2 when connecting the B12 to a B15
sub. If a cable wired 1+ and 1- is used the B12 will receive the same signal as the sub.
