= i po i The new Electro- Voice Regal 300 is a 3-way low-resonance system which, despite its ultra-compact design, provides ex- ceptionally wide-range response. It contains a special 12" woofer, the Electro- Voice 12WS, utilizing a five pound cera- mic magnet; an 5” mid-range cone-type speaker, with a llb. 6 oz. ceramic magnet; and a compression-type VHF driver. These features make it an excellent choice for either monaural or stereo reproduction. Constructed of fine hardwood veneers, the Regal 300 is fin- ished on four sides to allow use in either vertical or horizontal position. The nameplate may be rotated for vertical place- ment. The use of heavy, viktration-iree 3/4" panels gives the Regal 300 unusual rigidity. SPECIFICATIONS Nominal Impedance: 8 ohms Power Handling Capacity: T0 watts program Frequency Response Range: 32-19, 000 cps., + 5 db Components: 12WS5 woofer, 5" extended range speaker, compression high- frequency driver; crossover net- work, and two level controls. Size: 13" D., 14" H., 25" W, PLACEMENT Nearly all speaker systems sound best when placed in or near the corner of the room in which it is to be used. This positioning provides the best coupling between the speakers and the air in the room, the corners and walls acting as a large "horn" for the sound. The small size of the Rezal 300 also makes it ideal for bookshelf placement. Best height is at the listener's ear level. Four small self-adhesive pads are provided to protect the bottom face of the cabinet. OPERATION CONNECTIONS + Connection of your Regal 300 to the amplifier should be made with No. 18 or larger wire (common lamp cord is good). If you wish to run the lead between amplifier and speaker farther than thirty feet or to run it behind a moulding strip or under a carpet, use 300-0hm TV twin lead. Connect to the 8-ohm and common taps on theback of the amplifier. If the ampli- fier has a variable damping factor control,set it at 1. Be certain that these connections are secure. LEVEL CONTROLS Your Regal 300 is equipped with two controls, midrange or "presence" adjustment and a "brilliance" control, both of which are on the rear panel. Set presence control at "normal" position unless the unit is to be matched in a stereo arrange- ment with a speaker of differing efficiency, Brilliance control setting should usually be at "normal", but this may be adjusted to suit the acoustics of the room in which it is used. A simple, convenient way to adjust the high-fre- quency level control is to tune in a live FM broadcast and listen closely to the announcer's voice, adjusting so the "в" and "t" sound are no more prominent in the announcer's speech than they are inyours; such an adjustment will general- ly be quite satisfactory. Too high a setting of the high-frequency control will be audible as a bright, "metallic" sound. The FEATURES ¢ Three-speaker system offers balanced response, wide range e Finished on four sides for vertical or horizontal placement * Enclosure of 3/4-inch hardwood veneers best guide, of course, to proper setting of the control on the speaker system, is a familiarity with the sound of live music. Most listeners will find it easy to balance the sound to con- form to their personal tastes. STEREO OPERATION Your Regal 300 is designed for professional quality sound reproduction. The same performance features which make this unit outstanding for monaural reproduction will also give superb performance in stereophonic array. The wiring connections for a pair of Regal 300's in stereo are shown in Fig. 1. When connecting, be sure to run the lead from T1 on the Regal 300 to the 8-ohm terminal on the amplifier and from T2 on the Common terminal. With this connection both units will then be phased correctly. PLACEMENT FOR STEREO When arranging a pair of Regal 300's in stereo array, the units should be placed at positions which allow the listener to sit at the apex of a 30° to 40° angle, as shown in Fig. 2. This will provide the best stereophonic effect. If this place- ment is notpossible, you may, by experiment, use room re- verberations to advantage in finding other desirable positions.
