Installation
Unpack and carefully check that there is no transportation damage before using the unit. Keep
the equipment packaging. To fully protect the device against vibration, dust and moisture
during transportation or storage use the original packaging or your own packaging material
suitable for transport or storage, respectively.
Create all connections while the device is off. Use the shortest possible high-quality cables for
all connections. Take care when running the cables to prevent tripping hazards.

3.1 Tips on handling speakers
We recommend you to set up the speakers in a way, that the sound signals can reach the audi‐
ence unobstructedly. It will often be helpful to mount the speakers on tripods. Thus, the sound
will be evenly spread with maximum range throughout the audience area.
Always use high grade cable to connect your equipment. Otherwise you won't reach max‐
imum sound quality.
If you notice distortion during operation, the active speaker is overloaded. This may perma‐
nently damage the device. Always reduce the volume as soon as you hear distortion.

NOTICE!
Possible staining
The plasticiser contained in the rubber feet of this product may possibly react
with the coating of your parquet, linoleum, laminate or PVC floor and after some
time cause permanent dark stains.
In case of doubt, do not put the rubber feet directly on the floor, but use felt-pad
floor protectors or a carpet.
NOTICE!
Possible property damage by magnetic fields
Loudspeakers produce a static magnetic field. Therefore, maintain an appropriate
distance to devices that can be adversely affected or damaged by an external
magnetic field.

Installation
Comply with regulations
When installing and operating, make sure to follow the standards and regulations
that apply in your country. In Germany: BGV C1 "Staging and Production Facilities for
the Entertainment Industry". Only trained, qualified personnel may hang up speakers.
Mounting options
You can install the device standing or hanging upside down. When in use, the device must be
mounted at a solid surface or clamped to an approved truss.

Standing mounting
NOTICE!
Use of stands
When mounting the device onto a stand, ensure that the stand is in a safe and
stable position and that the weight of the device does not exceed the maximum
permissible load capacity of the stand.
We recommend that the speaker be set up so that the lower edge is located 175 cm above the
floor.

Suspended mounting
WARNING!
Risk of injury caused by falling objects
Portable PA systems should be secured from falling using two independently
working devices, for example, safety ropes.
The load capacity of trusses or other fixtures must be sufficient for the intended number of
devices. The personnel in charge of mounting the suspension system are responsible for
ensuring that the systems are set up and used safely.
Always work from a stable platform whenever installing, moving or servicing the unit. Block
access under the work area. Only persons directly involved in set-up and removal are author‐
ized to be in the assembly area.

Mains voltage selector. Make sure this selector is set correctly for the actual supply
voltage at the operating location. Use this switch only when the device is switched
off. Use a suitable screwdriver.
2 [OUTPUT]
Signal line output, designed as XLR socket.
3 [INPUT]
Line signal input, designed as XLR / 1/4" combo socket.
4 [CLIP]
Indicates overload (clipping). In this case, the level of the line input signal is too
high.

Plug and connection assignment
Introduction
This chapter will help you select the right cables and plugs to connect your valuable equip‐
ment in such a way that a perfect sound experience is ensured.
Please note these advices, because especially in ‘Sound & Light’ caution is indicated: Even if a
plug fits into the socket, an incorrect connection may result in a destroyed power amp, a short
circuit or ‘just’ in poor transmission quality!
Balanced and unbalanced trans‐
mission
Unbalanced transmission is mainly used in semi-professional environment and in hifi use.
Instrument cables with two conductors (one core plus shielding) are typical representatives of
the unbalanced transmission. One conductor is ground and shielding while the signal is trans‐
mitted through the core.
Unbalanced transmission is susceptible to electromagnetic interference, especially at low
levels, such as microphone signals and when using long cables.
In a professional environment, therefore, the balanced transmission is preferred, because this
enables an undisturbed transmission of signals over long distances. In addition to the conduc‐
tors ‘Ground’ and ‘Signal’, in a balanced transmission a second core is added. This also transfers
the signal, but phase-shifted by 180°.

Plug and connection assignment
Since the interference affects both cores equally, by subtracting the phase-shifted signals, the
interfering signal is completely neutralized. The result is a pure signal without any noise inter‐
ference.
