service personnel.
CAUTION
Always follow the basic precautions listed below to avoid the possibility of
physical injury to you or others, or damage to the device or other property.
These precautions include, but are not limited to, the following:
Location
• Do not place the device in an unstable position where it might accidentally fall
over.
• Do not place the device in a location where it may come into contact with
corrosive gases or salt air. Doing so may result in malfunction.
• Construction work should be carried out in accordance with constructionrelated law and always by a professional constructor. If the device installation
requires construction work, make sure to observe the following precautions.
- Choose mounting hardware and an installation location that can support the
weight of the device.
- Avoid locations that are exposed to constant vibration.
- Use the required tools to install the device.
- Inspect the device periodically.
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 caution
• Do not insert your fingers or hands in openings on the device.
• Do not operate the device if the sound is distorting. Prolonged use in this
condition could cause overheating and result in fire.
• When choosing a power amplifier for use with this device, make sure that the
output power of the amplifier is lower than the power capacity of this device
(see SPECIFICATIONS).
Even if the output power of the amplifier is lower than the power capacity of
this device (PGM), use of excessive input signals resulting in clipping may
cause damage to the device.
Malfunction or fire may occur especially when the following sounds or noises
are generated:
- feedback, when using a microphone
- continuous and extreme volume sound from a musical instrument

NOTICE
To avoid the possibility of malfunction/damage to the product or damage to other
property, follow the notices below.
● 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 carrying band.
• 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.

● About This Manual
The illustrations as shown in this manual are for instructional purposes only, and
may appear somewhat different from those on your device.
Yamaha cannot be held responsible for damage caused by improper use or
modifications to the device.
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.
Illustrations in this manual are for the VXC6. The installation method is the
same for other models.
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.
From amplifier or
previous speakers
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.
2 INSTALL THE TILE RAILS AND O-RING
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.

4 FIX THE SPEAKERS ONTO THE CEILING
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.
3 Turn the screwdriver a half turn counterclockwise to loosen the
attachment screw (located beside the U mark). This makes the
clamp easier to align in the channel.
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.

CAUTION
Always take measures to prevent the speaker from 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 snap as a result of too much
strain.
3 CONNECT THE WIRING TO THE CONNECTOR AND FIX
THE CABLE
4 Plug the connected Euroblock connector into the socket in the
speaker.
Illustration indicates the setting at 60 W for 100 V
line and 30 W for 70 V line.
2 Loosen the screw at the right of the terminal cover to open the
terminal cover and remove the Euroblock connector.
CAUTION
• The “X” position should not be selected. The 8Ω position should be
selected for 8Ω audio systems only. If the setting is incorrect, it may
cause malfunction of the speaker and amplifier.
• Make sure the amplifier is switched off before operating the tap selector
switch.
