Safety Symbol and Message Conventions
Safety symbols and messages described below are used in this manual to prevent bodily injury and property
damage which could result from mishandling. Before operating your product, read this manual first and
understand the safety symbols and messages so you are thoroughly aware of the potential safety hazards.
WARNING
Indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if mishandled, could
result in death or serious personal injury.
CAUTION
Indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if mishandled, could
result in moderate or minor personal injury, and/or property damage.
WARNING
• Install the unit only in a location that can
structurally support the weight of the unit and the
mounting bracket. Doing otherwise may result in
the unit falling down and causing personal injury
and/or property damage.
• Use nuts and bolts that are appropriate for the
ceiling's or wall's material and structure. Tighten
each nut and bolt securely. Ensure that the bracket
has no loose joints after installation to prevent
accidents that could result in personal injury.
• (Applicable to H-3 only)
Since the unit is designed for in-door use, do not
install it outdoors. If installed outdoors, the aging of
parts causes the unit to fall off, resulting in
personal injury. Also, when it gets wet with rain,
there is a danger of electric shock.
• Do not apply lubricant and rust inhibitor. If it
contacts resin or rubber parts, they could
deteriorate and cause the unit to fall, possibly
resulting in personal injury.
• (Applicable to H-3WP only)
Avoid installing the unit in locations close to the
seashore, or in indoor swimming pools or
bathrooms. In such locations, the bracket may be
vulnerable to corrosion, eventually allowing the
unit to fall resulting in personal injury.
2
CAUTION
• Avoid touching the unit's sharp metal edge to
prevent injury.
• Do not operate the unit for an extended period of
time with the sound distorting. This is an indication
of a malfunction, which in turn can cause heat to
generate and result in fire.
2. GENERAL DESCRIPTION
TOA's H-3 and H-3WP are wall-mounted 2-way speakers featuring wide horizontal dispersion.
The H-3 is designed for indoor use, and the H-3WP is designed for outdoor use.
Note: Protect the H-3WP from rain when installing. (Refer to p. 10 "Waterproofing the base frame.")
3. FEATURES
• Smooth curved surface blends in with the interiors of most modern buildings.
• Wide horizontal dispersion covers wide areas when mounted on the wall.
• Two 10 cm woofers featuring high input capacity ensure powerful, low distortion low-frequency sound
reproduction.
• 2.5 cm soft dome tweeter employs a neodymium magnet for clear, low distortion high-frequency sound
reproduction and high power-handling capability.
• Built-in crossover network circuitry features sharp cut-off characteristics that realize uniform energy radiation
while suppressing unwanted input signals to the woofer or tweeter.
• Two lock tabs secure the enclosure to the supplied base frame. The base frame can be mounted directly to
a 2-unit electrical box.
• A built-in matching transformer permits the speaker to be used for both high- and low-impedance
applications. For low-impedance applications, either the 8 Ω terminal or 16 Ω terminal can be selected.
Impedance can be easily changed from outside the unit.
• Detachable input connectors with dual positive and negative terminals for bridge connections.

the cables about 5 mm from the cable end.
• Usable cable: Solid or stranded cable (0.2 – 2.5 mm2 corresponding to AWG24 – 14)
Step 1-2. Mount the base frame on the wall using four screws.
Notes
• The speaker cannot be mounted if the base frame is not properly positioned. Ensure that the base
frame hole is situated on the upper side of the frame when mounted.
• Use nuts and bolts (not supplied with the unit for direct wall mounting) that are appropriate for the
structure and composition of the wall.
• When using two-gang electrical box, use either the supplied "M4 machine" or "Unified" screw
depending on the type of electrical box.

7. OUTDOOR USE (H-3WP ONLY)
7.1. Installation Precautions
• The H-3WP features drip-proof construction for permanent outdoor installation. However, do not dash water
over it when cleaning as this may cause damage to the speaker components.
• When installing the H-3WP in a snowy area, protect the speaker so that it is not covered with snow.
7.2. Waterproofing the Base Frame
The H-3WP's base frame has a gasket for watertightness. To
prevent water from getting into a gap between the base frame
and wall, apply commercial caulking agent over the inside of
the gasket before mounting the base frame.
Base frame
Note
Take care not to apply too much caulking agent. If it spreads
to the lock tab, the lock tab does not smoothly rotate and the
speaker may not be mounted or detached.

8. REPAINTING THE FRONT GRILLE
Follow the procedures below to change the color of the grille:
Step 1. Wipe dirt off the front grille with a soft cloth moistened with a detergent before painting. Do not use
volatile liquids such as thinner.
Step 2. Uniformly spray a thin coating of paint over the grille changing the spraying positions gradually.
Notes
• Do not use a roller or brush to paint because the grille mesh could be clogged with paint.
• Use paint that is appropriate for the material of the front grille (grille and frame).
[H-3]
Grille: Rolled steel plate
Frame: Fire-resistant ABS resin
[H-3WP] Grille: Rolled steel plate (zinc plating)
Frame: Fire-resistant ABS resin
• Follow the instructions on the paint when painting.
Step 3. After the paint dries, repeat Step 2 to repaint.
Note
Be sure to repeat Step 2 at least twice. If you paint only once, the paint may not be uniformly applied
or the grille mesh may be clogged.

9. PROTECTION CIRCUITRY INFORMATION
• The speaker's tweeter has built-in overload protection circuitry. (The woofer does not have the circuitry.)
If there is an extremely high level input signal to the tweeter, the overload protection circuitry is activated and
cuts off the signal input to the tweeter.
• A sudden drop of the sound volume level during speaker operation indicates that the overload protection
circuitry has been activated. In such a case, reduce the amplifier volume and wait. The protection circuitry is
automatically reset after approximately ten seconds. After the circuitry is reset, set the volume at a lower
level than before.
Caution
This overload protection circuitry does not completely protect the tweeter. Depending on the nature of the
excessive signal applied to the speaker, there may be damage to the speaker before the protection circuitry
can operate. Also, depending on the duration of the excessive input signal, the protection circuitry may be
damaged and will not recover. Take special care that the excessive input is not applied to the speaker during
use.
10. EQUALIZATION
• The H-3 and H-3WP speakers are designed to provide good quality sound without additional signal
processing. However, by equalizing them as shown below, sounds can be made more powerful and
intelligible.
• Using a digital signal processor, use the following equalization settings.
