Connections
• Before connecting the device to a power amplifier, turn off the power for
all devices. Before turning the power on or off for all devices, set all
volume levels to minimum.
• Use only speaker cables for connecting speakers to the speaker jacks.
Use of other types of cables may result in fire.
Maintenance
• Do not wipe the outer packaging with benzine, thinner, or synthetic
detergent and do not use electrical contact cleaner. These may damage
the outer packaging and dissolve the parts.
● Handling and Maintenance
• Do not place vinyl, plastic or rubber objects on the device, since this
might discolor the panel.
• When cleaning the device, use a dry and soft cloth. Do not use paint
thinners, solvents, cleaning fluids, or chemical-impregnated wiping
cloths.
• Condensation can occur in the device due to rapid, drastic changes in
ambient temperature-when the device is moved from one location to
another, or air conditioning is turned on or off, for example. Using the
device while condensation is present can cause damage. If there is
reason to believe that condensation might have occurred, leave the
device for several hours until the condensation has completely dried out.
• Be sure to observe the amplifier’s rated load impedance (see
SPECIFICATIONS), particularly when connecting speakers in parallel.
Connecting an impedance load outside the amplifier’s rated range can
damage the amplifier.
• When connecting the speakers with high impedance, be sure that the
total rated input capacity of the speakers does not exceed the output
power of the amplifier.
• When using a high-impedance speaker connection, make sure the audio
signal is passed through an 80 Hz or above high-pass filter before being
input to the speakers.
• ABOUT THE PROTECTION CIRCUIT
This speaker system has an internal protection circuit that shuts off the
speaker unit when an excessive input signal is applied.
If the speaker unit emits no sound, reduce the volume level of the
amplifier immediately.
The sound will return automatically in several seconds.
• Do not swing the speaker by its strap.
• Do not place the speaker face down with the grille attached, as
deformation of the grille may result.
• When placing the speaker face down, always place it on a flat and
smooth surface.
• Do not touch the speaker driver unit.

INSTALLING THE SPEAKERS
There are two acceptable wiring methods.
Install the speakers onto the ceiling with the supplied hardware. Ensure that
the strength of the ceiling rail is sufficiently strong.
CAUTION
When connecting with low impedance, take note of the combined
resistance.
Pre-installation (Preparation of the Cable)
Use stranded wire for cables attached to the Euroblock connector. Strip
their insulation as shown in the figure and connect them.
About 7 mm (0.3 in.)
7 Hold the cable in the strain relief clamp, then tighten screws A and B.
Using Loop-Through Terminals
For this method, cables are connected from terminals 1 and 4 to the
subsequent speaker. If the Euroblock connector is disconnected from
a speaker, all subsequent speakers will not work. This can be useful
to identify which speaker has a problem.
NOTE
Do not plate stranded wires by solder. Doing so will cause the wire to break.
1 CUT OUT A HOLE IN THE CEILING
1 Put the supplied cutout template to the ceiling and draw a circle by
tracing it.
Make sure to use the cutout template so that hole is the correct
diameter.
8 Close the terminal cover and tighten the screw.
From amplifier or
previous speakers
NOTE
If you use a circular cutter, set the diameter with the cutout template.
2 Cut the hole by tracing the circle.
Be careful to prevent chips or powder entering your eyes while
cutting the hole.

4 FIX THE SPEAKERS ONTO THE CEILING
2 INSTALL THE TILE RAILS AND O-RING
2 Insert the folded O-ring through the cut hole and open it in the ceiling.
To release the speaker from the
O-ring, press the Anti-Drop tabs.
These are located above the U
mark near the edge of the
cabinet’s face.

Speaker
1 Insert the two tile rails through the cut hole and place them on the
ceiling surface within your reach. Be sure that each tile rails are
oriented as shown below.
When all the Anti-Drop tabs
cross over the O-ring, the
speaker is held temporarily. You
can release your hands from the
speaker.
Paralleling Input Terminals
For this method, cables are connected to terminals 2 and 3 of each
speaker. Since the cables are connected via Euroblock connectors,
subsequent speakers can work even if a problem occurs with a
speaker.
1 Attach the safety wire to the safety wire ring, and connect the wire to
an independent support point, such as a joist.
4 Turn the screwdriver clockwise to tighten the attachment screw.
The first turn of the attachment screw aligns the clamp with the
channel. Further turns move the clamp down the channel to pull the
speaker up into the ceiling.

1 Pull the wiring from the amplifier through the cut hole.
CAUTION
Always take measures to prevent the speaker falling down.
If the safety wire is too short, prepare another wire appropriate for the
speaker weight and installation conditions. If the wire is too long,
should the speaker fall, the wire may break as a result of too much
strain.
CAUTION
• Do not over-tighten the attachment screw. Otherwise, the
attachment screw and clamp will break.
• Do not turn any screws that do not have a guide sleeve in the screw
hole. Otherwise, the speaker may fall or malfunction.
