13
Ground lift switch: During normal operation the switch should be in the ‘GND’ position. Should the system suffer from a low frequency (50/60Hz) hum the switch can be moved to the ‘lift’ position. This will disconnect the signal ground from the chassis. Do not attempt to remove the protective earth from the incoming mains connection.
14
On/Off switch: Mains power on/off for the system. Connections for signal input and speaker outputs must be made before powering on the system.
15
Mains fuse: Should the unit fail to power on remove the mains cord and check the fuse. Replace only with T.3.15A 250V type.
16
IEC mains inlet: Connect the system to the mains using the supplied 13A BS1363 IEC power cord. Care should be taken to ensure the mains outlet voltage is AC 240V 50Hz.
17
Ventilation holes: The system utilises a forced air system to keep the system cool while running under
demanding systems. All ventilation slots must be kept clear of obstruction and cleaned on regular occasions. 18
Satellite input: Satellite input socket for speaker level signal input from the subwoofer. Start Up
Place the subwoofer to the desired installation area and carefully turn it onto its feet.
Make sure that the power switch is set to “OFF” before you connect the speakers.
Inputs
This speaker system is to be directly connected to the line outputs of your audio mixer or keyboard etc.
A good quality cable run improves the sound quality considerably. Input cables should be short and
direct, since high frequencies may be absorbed if the cables are unnecessarily long. Also a longer cable may lead to hum or noise problems. If long cables runs are unavoidable, you should use balanced cables.
In order to obtain the highest sound quality, only use high quality cables for connecting the units.
The system can be connected via phono sockets or XLR plugs for line level inputs and via balanced XLR jack sockets for microphone level inputs
Always connect the left and right channels for stereo operation. For mono operation, connect the mono signal to the left input. Connect the left output socket via a short XLR cable to the right input.

Installation instructions
Installation on a Speaker Stand
The speaker system may only be installed on a speaker stand if the original speaker system is equipped with an appropriate stand adaptor.
Stands or satellite systems must only be installed on a plane area with a maximum inclination angle of 5°.
CAUTION: Speaker systems installed under the influence of horizontal forces, e.g. wind, can be impaired. This is why additional safety measures like attaching ballast weights have to be taken.
If inclined tension cables or prolonged outriggers are used, the area of danger has to marked or blocked.
Before lifting or lowering the telescopic tubes, you must always block a safety area around the stand or satellite system. This safety area must have a diameter of 1.5 times the maximum height.
Lifted telescopic tubes always have to be secured with a secondary securing attachment.
The total weight of the installation (total weight of system including individual parts) must never exceed the maximum load of the installation area.
Unintended movement of the load has to be avoided - also in case of fire!
Loosen the fixing screws of the legs, pull the legs out until the cross struts are at a 90˚ angle to the legs. Tighten the fixing screws of the legs.
Installation Of The Speaker System
CAUTION: The loads have to be installed in a balanced way.
CAUTION: The carrying capacity of the stand or speaker stand must never be exceeded.
Please note: Speaker
stands are NOT included
Wall Installation
The speaker system can only be installed on a wall, if the original speaker system is equipped with an appropriate mounting point.
Before attaching the speaker system, make sure that the installation area can hold a minimum point load of 10 times the installations weight. (E.g. 13kg - 130kg point load).
The durability of the installation depends very much on the material used at the installation area (building material), such as wood, concrete and brick etc. This is why the fixing material must be chosen to suit the wall material. Always ask a specialist for the correct plug/screw combination indicating the maximum load and building material. (Note: Wall bracket/s not included)
