Warnings & Safety Instructions
1. READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS carefully and become familiar with the features and
functions of this product before operating it.
2. RETAIN THESE INSTRUCTIONS for future reference.
3. COMPLY WITH ALL WARNINGS – All warnings and instructions for this product should be adhered to.
4. USE WITH AMPLIFIERS – In order to avoid damage to drivers and other equipment,
it is advisable to establish and follow a routine for powering up and powering down a
sound system. With all system components connected, turn on source equipment (mixers,
signal processors, record and playback units, etc.) BEFORE powering up amplifiers. Transient voltages from powering up source equipment can damage speakers if amplifiers are
turned on when these sources are powered up. Make sure that amplifier volumes are set
to their minimum settings and power up any system amplifiers LAST. It is recommended
that all system components be allowed to stabilize for several seconds before any source
signals are introduced or level setting adjustments are made.
Similarly, when shutting systems down, turn all amplifiers off first, before
powering down any other system components.
5. CABLES – Do not use shielded or microphone cables for connection between
amplifiers and speakers. Use only approved speaker cables with proper
connectors.
6. RIGGING – SUSPENDING – MOUNTING – Rigging, suspending and mounting of this
speaker system can expose members of the public to serious health and risks and even
death. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES ATTEMPT TO RIG, SUSPEND OR OTHERWISE MOUNT
THIS SYSTEM UNLESS YOU ARE FULLY QUALIFIED AND CERTIFIED TO DO SO BY RELEVANT LOCAL, STATE AND NATIONAL AUTHORITIES. ALL RELEVANT SAFETY REGULATIONS MUST BE FOLLOWED. IF YOU ARE NOT PROPERLY QUALIFIED OR DO NOT KNOW OF
PERTINENT REGULATIONS, CONSULT QUALIFIED PERSONNEL FOR ADVICE.
7. CAUTION – These professional loudspeaker systems are capable of generating very
high sound pressure levels. Use care with placement and operation to avoid exposure to
excessive volume levels that can cause permanent hearing damage if operated to extremes.
8. SERVICE – There are no user serviceable parts inside this product. Users should not
attempt to service this product. Warranty nullification could result if this is attempted.

Operation
The TITAN 12 is a passive, two-way, speaker system that provides an 8 ohm impedance
load, per enclosure, to each output channel of the system power amplifier. Multiple
TITAN 12 enclosures can be “daisy-chained”, in parallel, with the impedance load
dropping in half with each additional enclosure. In other words, two TITAN 12 enclosures,
connected in parallel, will provide a 4 Ohm impedance load. Like wise, three TITAN 12
enclosures connected in parallel will provide a 2 ohm impedance load to the amplifier. Be
aware that some amplifiers are not designed to accept loads as low as 2 ohms and loads
this low can result in decreased performance and overheating of the amplifier and can
cause damage to amplifier electronics. Consult the manufacturers operating manual for
the amplifier before connecting multiple speakers together.
The HIGH FREQUENCY EQ switch provides a 3dB boost to the high frequency driver for
long throw applications. Switch selections are “BOOST” (3dB increase) and “FLAT”
(no increase).
Connections
The TITAN 12 input connections from the output of the amplifier will be via ¼” phone
jacks or Speakon® NL4 connectors that are located on the rear mounted input plate. NL4
connector pin wiring is configured as follows:
+1 = Positive
–1 = Negative
Optional Accessories
+ Wall mount bracket – Enables surface mounting with pan and tilt positioning for fixed installations
+ Titan Tour Bag – Ballistic nylon zippered carrying bag with storage pocket
for cables
