2. GENERAL DESCRIPTION
TOA's H-2 and H-2WP are small, dome-shaped 2-way speakers featuring high sound quality. The H-2 is
designed for indoor use, and the H-2WP is designed for outdoor use.
Note: Protect the H-2WP from rain when installing. (Refer to P. 10 "7.1. Waterproofing".)
3. FEATURES
• The speaker's smooth curved surface allows it to blend in with the interiors of most modern buildings.
• The speaker's small (10 cm) woofer features a magnetic circuit (employing a neodymium magnet) that
ensures powerful low-frequency sound reproduction.
• The one-inch balanced dome tweeter features ferro-fluid to ensure superb transient response characteristics
for clear, high frequency sound output and high power-handling capabilities.
• The speaker's built-in, crossover network circuitry features sharp cut-off characteristics that realize uniform
energy radiation while suppressing unwanted input signals to the woofer or tweeter.
• The speaker is designed with an emphasis on installation ease and safety, as well as easier conduit wiring
when an electrical box is installed.
• The speaker's round mounting base frame allows the speaker to be installed at any mounting angle.
Note: When mounting the H-2WP speaker to a wall, to ensure its watertightness it must not be tilted any
more than 45 degrees up from its downward-facing position.
• A built-in matching transformer permits the speaker to be used for both high- and low-impedance
applications. For low-impedance applications, either the 4 or 16 terminal can be selected. Impedance
can be easily changed from outside the unit.
• Detachable screw terminals facilitate connection. Dual positive and negative terminals also facilitate bridge
connections.
• The H-2's enclosure and front grille are made of fire-resistant ABS (UL Standard 94: V-0 Grade).
• The structure of the speaker's front grille is specially designed for ease of refinishing and repainting.
4. HANDLING PRECAUTIONS
• Avoid using the speaker on the beach because the speaker's life can be greatly shortened by sea breezes.
• The speakers are not magnetically shielded. Install them as far away as possible from television sets or
computer's CRTs to avoid degradation in picture quality.

7. OUTDOOR USE (H-2WP ONLY)
7.1. Waterproofing
The H-2WP's base frame has a gasket for watertightness.
To completely prevent water from getting into a gap
between the base frame and wall or ceiling panel, apply
caulking agent over the inside of the gasket before
mounting the base frame.

7.2. Speaker Mounting Angle
When mounting the H-2WP speaker on a wall, to ensure
its watertightness it must not be tilted any more than 45
degrees up from its downward-facing position.
Notes
• The H-2WP features drip-proof construction. However,
do not dash water over it when cleaning as this may
cause damage to the speaker components.
• When installing the H-2WP outdoors in a snowy area,
protect the speaker so that it is not covered with snow.
10
8. REPAINTING THE FRONT GRILLE
Follow the procedures below to change the color of the grille.
1. Wipe dirt off the front grille with a soft cloth moistened with a detergent before painting. Do not use volatile
liquids such as thinner.
2. Uniformly spray a thin coating of paint over the grille changing the spraying positions gradually.
Notes
• Do not use a roller or brush to paint because the meshes of the grille could be clogged with paint.
• Use paint that is appropriate for the composition of the front grille (grille and frame).
[H-2]
[H-2WP]
Grille: Rolled steel plate
Frame: Fire-resistant ABS resin
Grille: Stainless steel
Frame: AES resin
• Follow the instructions on the paint when painting.
3. After the paint dries, repeat Step 2 once or twice to repaint.
Note: Be sure to repeat Step 2 at least twice.
9. PROTECTION CIRCUITRY INFORMATION
• The speaker has built-in overload protection circuitry.
If there is an extremely high level input signal to the speaker, the overload protection circuitry is activated
and cuts off the signal input to the speaker component.
• A sudden drop of the sound volume level during speaker operation indicates that the overload protection
circuitry has been activated. In such a case, reduce the amplifier volume and wait. The protection circuitry is
automatically reset after approximately 3-30 seconds. After the circuitry is reset, set the volume at a lower
level than before.
Important Note
This overload protection circuitry does not completely protect the speaker component. Depending on the
nature of the excessive signal applied to the loudspeaker, there may be damage to the loudspeaker
components before the protection circuitry can operate. Also, depending on the duration of the excessive input
signal, the protection circuitry may be damaged and will not recover. Take special care that the excessive
input is not applied to the speaker during use.
10. EQUALIZATION
• The H-2 and H-2WP are designed to provide good quality sound without additional equalization. However,
by equalizing them as shown below, sounds can be made more powerful and intelligible.
• Using a digital signal processor such as DP-0202 or DP-0204, make the following equalization setting.
