2. GENERAL DESCRIPTION
TOA's lineup of line array speakers employs TOA's unique wave front control technology to create a sound
field that offers clear reproduction and uniform sound dispersion.
This lineup includes versions offering either 5 degrees or 15 degrees of angled vertical directivity, as well as
sub-woofer configured types.
The use of optional support brackets allows the line array speakers to be used in many applications as
permanent sound system installations.
3. FEATURES
• TOA's unique wave front control technology creates a uniform sound distribution field with interference-free
high frequency output, realizing high-clarity acoustic characteristics and long sound transmission
capabilities.
• The SR-C8L is a two-way speaker mounting a high-power 20 cm woofer and two compression drivers, and
featuring a 5 degree angle of vertical directivity and 110 degrees of horizontal. It is ideal for long distance
applications and can be powered by either one or two amplifiers.
• The SR-C8S is a two-way speaker mounting a high-power 20 cm woofer and two compression drivers, and
featuring a 15 degree angle of vertical directivity and 110 degrees of horizontal. It is ideal for shorter
distance applications and can be powered by either one or two amplifiers.
• By combining the long-distance SR-8L and short-distance SR-8S, a line array speaker system can be built
to support a variety of applications.
• The SR-C15B sub-woofer employs a large-diameter 38 cm woofer with high power handling capabilities,
and is designed to be used in conjunction with the SR-C8L or SR-C8S line array speakers.
• The line array speakers are designed to allow easy rear access for maintenance work.
• Overlap angles between individual speakers can be set in 1 degree units between 0 and 5 degrees when
constructing the line array speaker, making it possible to flexibly control speaker directivity.
• The line array speaker can be stacked or suspended with the additional use of the SR-RF8 Rigging Frame.
4. INSTALLATION PRECAUTIONS

9. FLYING SYSTEMS USING THE SR-RF8 RIGGING FRAME
9.1. Flying System Outline
Use the SR-RF8 Rigging Frame for flying applications. Up to twelve line array speakers can be simultaneously
connected per frame, however the SR-C15B is calculated as two units.
Adjust the vertical directivity angle according to the installation environment. For applications that specify longdistance sound transmission, link the long-distance SR-C8L speakers together.
Shown below is a basic flying system.
Rigging frame
SR-C15B
SR-C8L
SR-C8S
The line array speaker's vertical directivity angle is 5 degrees for the SR-C8L and 15 degrees for the SR-C8S.
[SR-C8L]
[SR-C8S]
5 degrees
15 degrees
13
This flying system consists of four SR-C8L units, two SR-C8S units and one SR-C15B unit. To enhance longdistance sound transmission capabilities, the four SR-C8Ls are linked together at overlap angles of four, two
and one degree. As a result of this, the system's overall vertical directivity angle is 43 degrees.
Overlap angles can be set depending on how the speakers are linked together.
The horizontal directivity angle is 110 degrees.

As can be seen from the above figure, the overlap angle is equal to the rear opening angle between speakers.
Example: To adjust the sound radiation overlap angle to five degrees, set the rear opening angle between the
speakers to five degrees.
If the speakers are linked flat without no space between them, there will be no sound radiation
overlap. For overlap angle settings, refer to "Connection Between Speakers" on page 17.

9.2. Assembling the SR-RF8 Rigging Frame
Assemble the rigging frame referring to the figure below.
Ensure that fixing plates are correctly secured using two bolts (including plain and spring washers) supplied
with the rigging frame for each plate.
Since each fixing plate has its own installation position and orientation, refer to the figure for correct assembly.
Be sure that the forward mounting holes are always used in flying applications.

9.5. About the Flying Installations
Cautions
• Suspension wires and shackles are not supplied with the speaker. Separately prepare and use those
which are strong enough to suspend the speaker system. Further, ensure that the ceiling structure from
which the speaker system is suspended is also robust and capable of supporting the system's total
weight.
• A total of up to 12 line array speakers can be connected per rigging frame. However, the SR-C15B is
calculated as two units. No more than a total of 12 units can be connected.
• Use at least two points on both the left and right sides to suspend
the system vertically.
• Use the suspension points that allow the system to be set for a
desired downward angle. The downward angle increases as the
suspension points are moved rearward.
Center of gravity
• Add an anti-swing guy wire as required. However, take care that
the speaker system's weight is not applied to the wire.

11. SPEAKER STACKING
11.1. Stack System Outline
It is possible to stack the line array speakers using the SR-RF8 Rigging Frame. Up to eight speakers can be
stacked, noting that each line array speaker is calculated as 1 unit and each SR-C15B sub-woofer as 2 units.
Shown below is a basic stack system. Note that casters must be prepared separately.

11.2. Assembling the SR-RF8 Rigging Frame
Before assembly, first determine whether to set the mounting position of the fixing plate at the center or
forward, taking the stack system's center of gravity into consideration.
Ensure that fixing plates are correctly secured using two bolts (including plain and spring washers) supplied
with the rigging frame for each plate.
Since each fixing plate has its own installation position and orientation, assemble it referring to the figure.

11.3. Connecting the Rigging Frame to the Speaker
Connect the rigging frame to the speaker referring to the following figure.
Correctly connect both units by tightening the supplied nuts and bolts from both the left and right sides.
When using the SR-C15B sub-woofer in the stack system, mount it in the lowermost position (i.e. immediately
above the rigging frame). In this configuration, attach the sub-woofer receptacle pieces to the rigging frame,
as shown in the figure.

11.5. About Stacking
• Separately prepare casters and mounting hardware, which function as the rigging frame's feet.
• When stacked, the overhang of the front or rear portion of the line array speaker cannot extend more than
10 cm beyond the edge of the rigging frame.
Notes
• Up to 8 Line Array Speakers can be stacked. The SR-C15B Sub-woofer is counted as 2 units. No more 8
speakers can be stacked.
• When stacking 6 or more speakers, be sure to use the SR-SB8 Rigging Support Bracket to prevent the
stacked speakers from tipping over. The SR-C15B Sub-woofer is counted as 2 units.

12. USING THE SR-SB8 RIGGING SUPPORT BRACKET
The SR-SB8 Rigging Support Bracket is used to prevent the stacked SR-C8 series line array speakers from
tipping over. Be sure the SR-SB8 is used whenever six or more SR-C8 series speakers are stacked.
Count the SR-C15B sub-woofer as two units when configuring a system.
12.1. Level Adjuster Installation
Mount a level adjuster on each rigging support bracket, referring to the following figure.
Turn each level adjuster to adjust the rigging frame height so that the tip of the adjuster projects about 30 mm
above the support bracket.
30mm
12.2. Rigging Support Bracket Installation
Mount the rigging support bracket to the rigging frame, as shown in the figure below. Ensure that all support
brackets are securely mounted using the supplied nuts and bolts.

Notes
• Quick release pins are not supplied with the speaker.
• Prepare quick release pins with a diameter of 3/8 inch (10 mm) and length of 2.5 inches (65 mm) as
required.
12.4. Adjust the Height With a Level Adjuster to Prevent Unstable Installation
After the speaker installation location has been determined, adjust the level adjusters until it is confirmed that
the rigging frame is free from any instability. Since the existence of instability could cause the speaker system
to fall down, secure the adjusters correctly.
Notes
• To avoid risks, warn others to stay away from the speaker or not to lean against it.
• Up to eight line array speakers can be stacked together. However, one SR-C15B sub-woofer is counted
as two units. No more than eight units can be stacked together.

13. TILTING THE SPEAKER DOWNWARD
The line array speaker (except the sub-woofer) mounted in the lowermost position can also be tilted another 5
to 15 degrees with the use of the optional SR-TP8 Tilt Joint Bracket. Attach the bracket, as shown in the figure
below.
