2. GENERAL DESCRIPTION
The TOA HX-5 series is a 2-way compact speaker system that permits both constant directivity control over a
wide frequency range and changes in directivity. It is ideal for reproducing clear sound in spaces with long
reverberation times or high background noises. The HX-5B and HX-5W are designed for indoor use, while the
HX-5B-WP and HX-5W-WP are for outdoor use.
3. FEATURES
• Four speaker modules ensure high power and high quality.
• The changeable orientation of each of the four speaker modules independently allows the directivity angle of
the speaker system to be adjusted.
• Built-in passive network ensures appropriate sound quality.
• Ideal for both permanent and temporary installations, including both vertical and horizontal positioning.
• Equipped with a convenient carrying handle.
• Can be mounted directly on a wall or suspended by wire, chain or shackle with no need to use optional
brackets.
• Optional mounting brackets allow use in a wide variety of applications, including suspension, ceiling
mounting, wall mounting, and speaker stand mounting. Mounting procedures are described in the instruction
manuals enclosed with the mounting bracket or stand adapter.

4. ABOUT THE INPUT OVERLOAD PROTECTION CIRCUITRY
The speaker system features internal input overload protection circuitry. If an extremely high input level is fed
to the unit, the protection circuitry automatically cuts off the signal to the tweeters.
A drastic reduction in sound volume for the high frequency range indicates that the protection circuitry has
been enabled.
In such cases, simply reduce the amplifier volume. The protection circuitry will automatically reset in
approximately 10 seconds. After reset, try to maintain the volume at a level slightly lower than before.
Caution
This protection circuitry does not completely protect the unit against extremely high input power levels.
Depending on the type or duration of excessive power input, the protection circuitry might not be enabled,
resulting in damage to the speaker element. Also, if the excessive power input continues for a long period of
time, the circuitry may not be capable of resetting to its original condition.
Use the system with care so that the speakers are not exposed to excessive power input.
5. INSTALLATION PRECAUTIONS FOR THE HX-5B-WP AND HX-5W-WP
Only the HX-5B-WP and HX-5W-WP are suitable for outdoor installation.
For outdoor installation, observe the following precautions.
• All speaker modules must point downward from the horizontal. Failure to do so could adversely affect their
intended weather-resistant capability, leading to malfunction.

Tilt down from the horizontal.
• Both the HX-5B-WP and the HX-5W-WP employ a splash-proof construction that allows them to be installed
outdoors, but they should only be installed in locations where the ambient temperature is within the range of
–15°C to +50°C. Exceeding the temperature range will cause the speaker to fail.
