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.
When Installing the Unit
• Avoid installing or mounting the unit in unstable locations, such as on a rickety table or a slanted surface.
Doing so may result in the unit falling down and causing personal injury and/or property damage.
• Refer all installation work to the dealer from whom the speaker was purchased. Installation requires
extensive technical knowledge and experience. The speaker may fall off if incorrectly installed, resulting in
possible personal injury.
• Flying Precautions
Be sure to follow the instructions below. Otherwise, the suspension wires or belts may be off or snap and
the speaker may fall off, causing personal injury.
· Check to confirm that the suspension wires and belts are strong enough to withstand the speaker load.
· The connectors of the suspension wires and belts must be securely linked with those of the speaker.
· All parts and components (such as enclosures, metal pieces, and screws) must be free from any
deformation, crack, and corrosion.
· Be sure to use screws supplied with the optional flying hardware when installing the speaker using such
hardware.
• 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.
• Owing to the unit's size and weight, be sure that at least two persons are available to install the unit. Failure
to do so could result in personal injury.
• Do not use other methods than specified to install the speaker. Extreme force is applied to the unit and the
unit could fall off, possibly resulting in personal injuries.
• Use nuts and bolts that are appropriate for the ceiling's or wall's structure and composition. Failure to do so
may cause the speaker to fall, resulting in material damage and possible personal injury.
• 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.
• Use the specified mounting bracket in combination. Doing otherwise may cause the unit or component to fall
off, resulting in personal injury.
• Do not mount the unit in locations exposed to constant vibration. The mounting bracket can be damaged by
excessive vibration, potentially causing the unit to fall, which could result in personal injury.

CAUTION
Indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if mishandled, could
result in moderate or minor personal injury, and/or property damage.
When Installing the Unit
• Avoid placing the unit in a doorway or other high traffic area as people may trip on the equipment and cords,
or be injured by falling objects.
• Avoid touching the unit's sharp metal edge to prevent injury.
• When installing the speaker at head height, attach the optional SR-PP4 Protection Pad to the bottom of the
speaker. Failure to do so may cause injury if people hit their heads directly against the speaker.
When the Unit is in Use
• 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 a fire.
• Do not stand or sit on, nor hang down from the unit as this may cause it to fall down or drop, resulting in
personal injury and/or property damage.
• Have the unit checked periodically by the shop from where it was purchased. Failure to do so may result in
corrosion or damage to the unit or its mounting bracket that could cause the unit to fall, possibly causing
personal injury.

2. GENERAL DESCRIPTION
Featuring slim construction, the SR-S4 series are 2-way line array speakers containing 32 speaker elements.
The sound source speaker elements are vertically arranged in close proximity to each other, and form a
continuous linear sound source, achieving uniform sound pressure with less attenuation due to distance.
The SR-S4L speaker is of a linear design which is ideal for long distance sound transmission applications,
while the SR-S4S features a curved line having a 10° vertical coverage area, and is designed to cover
relatively short distance applications.
It is also possible to combine both the linear and curved line types to configure an array that continuously
covers applications ranging from short to long distances.
3. FEATURES
• The SR-S4 series is a 2-way line array speaker having eight 10 cm woofers for low-frequency output, and 24
small tweeters for high-frequency sound output. Both the woofers and tweeters are arranged in the front and
rear on the same axis, providing a symmetrical, uniform coverage area.
• Since the linear sound source effect prevents energy from attenuating even at longer distances, the line
array speaker compares favorably with normal types of speakers in its ability to project sound long
distances. This realizes less difference in sound volume between areas close and far from the speaker, for a
more uniform sound field.
• Since the speaker's vertical sound dispersion is suppressed, sound is only directed at the target area. The
speaker's construction is not influenced by sound reflection from ceiling or floor surfaces, and can provide
clear sounds even in spaces affected by long reverberation times or other poor acoustic conditions.
• Since the attenuation of sound pressure is small even far away from the speaker, the volume is not
excessively loud in the area near the speaker. This helps suppress feedback (improving safety amplification
gain).
• By joining 2 or 3 speakers, a longer sound source can be configured, making it possible to project sound
output farther and at larger volumes.
• The speaker has a built-in network circuit for a single amplifier drive. Changing the internal connector
position enables bi-amplifier drive that provides a higher quality sound output.
• The use of optional mounting brackets* permits the speaker to be installed in the most appropriate position
for its intended use. (Details of the installation procedures are described in the installation manual enclosed
with each bracket.)
* SR-WB4 Wall mounting bracket, SR-TB4 Wall tilt bracket, SR-FB4 Flying bracket, SR-SA4 Stand adapter,
and SR-FS4 Floor stand.
• The speaker can be used for high-impedance applications with the additional use of the optional MT-S0601
Matching transformer. (Single-amplifier drive only)

4. COVERAGE AREA
The line array speaker radiates a sound only within a limited range.
Since sound is reduced in areas that are outside the range, take care that the listening area is sufficiently
covered when installing the speaker.
• Correct installation examples
[SR-S4L x 2]
[SR-S4S]
[SR-S4L + SR-S4S]
• Incorrect installation examples
If the speaker is installed high above the floor facing horizontally or diagonally downward at a large angle, the
listening area cannot be covered sufficiently.
