IMPORTANT SAFETY PRECAUTIONS AND EXPLANATION OF SYMBOLS
WARNING!
The lightning flash with the arrowhead symbol within an equilateral triangle is intended to alert the user to the presence of
uninsulated “dangerous” voltage within the product’s enclosure that may be of sufficient magnitude to constitute a risk of
shock to humans.
The exclamation point within an equilateral triangle is intended to alert the user to the presence of important operation and
maintenance (servicing) instructions in this manual.
1. Read these instructions.
2. Keep these instructions.
3. Heed all warnings.
4. Follow all instructions.
5. Clean only with a dry cloth.
6. Install in accordance with QSC Audio Product’s instructions and local building codes. The installation should be done by a licensed
installation professional.
7. Do not install near any heat sources such as radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other apparatus (including amplifiers) that produce heat.
8. Only use attachments/accessories from QSC Audio Products, LLC.
9. Use only with mounts or brackets supplied or specified by QSC Audio Products, LLC.
10.Refer all servicing to qualified personnel. Servicing is required when the apparatus has been damaged in any way.
WARNING! Before placing, installing, rigging, or suspending any speaker product, inspect all hardware, suspension, cabinets,
transducers, brackets and associated equipment for damage. Any missing, corroded, deformed or non-load rated component
could significantly reduce the strength of the installation, placement, or array. Any such condition severely reduces the safety of the
installation and should be immediately corrected. Use only hardware which is rated for the loading conditions of the installation
and any possible short-term unexpected overloading. Never exceed the rating of the hardware or equipment. Consult a licensed,
professional engineer when any doubt or questions arise regarding a physical equipment installation.

Suspending the Weatherized WideLines
Rules for Suspension
•
Correct use of all suspension hardware and components is imperative in sound system suspension and deployment.
•
Always calculate suspended loads before lifting to ensure suspension components and hardware are used within their respective load limits.
•
Research local codes and regulations to fully understand the requirements for suspended loads in the venue in which the equipment is to
be suspended.
•
Use only shackle holes for suspension of array.
•
Be absolutely certain of the integrity of any structural member intended to support suspended loads. Hidden structural members can have
hidden structural weakness.
•
Consult a Professional Mechanical or Structural Engineer licensed in the jurisdiction of the sound system installation to review, verify, and
approve all attachments to the building or structure.
•
Never assume anything. Owner or third-party supplied suspension attachment points may not be adequate for the loads to be suspended.
•
Employ the services of a Professional Rigger for hoisting, positioning, and attaching the equipment to the supporting structure.
•
Always inspect all components (enclosures, suspension brackets, pins, frames, bolts, nuts, slings, shackles, etc.) for cracks, wear,
deformation, corrosion, missing, loose, or damaged parts that could reduce the strength of the assembly before lifting. Discard any worn,
defective, or suspect parts and replace them with new appropriately load-rated parts.
•
This product is designed to use outside. When suspending, be sure to take into account all possible weather conditions, such as wind, for
the local area in which the product is installed.
Shock Loading
When a load is either moved or stopped, its static weight is magnified. Sudden movements can magnify the static weight several times. This
magnification of static weight is termed "shock loading". Shock loading poses a danger to equipment and workers. The effects of shock loading can
be instantaneous, or they may remain undetected unless the equipment is visually damaged. Avoiding shock loading requires careful planning and
knowledge of equipment, suspension, and lifting practices. Shock loading of equipment and structures is usually confined to lifting and installation, but
natural forces (winds, earthquakes) can impose shock loads several times the static load. This is why structures and suspension equipment must be
capable of supporting several times the weight of the equipment suspended.

Weatherized WideLine Working Load Limits and Design Factors
(Table 1) lists the suspension components and provides Working Load Limit data at various Design Factors. The tabulated Design Factors are for
static loads only. The choice of which Design Factor to use will depend upon the jurisdiction and venue of installation, as well as the conditions of
suspension. Dynamic conditions are determined by unknown, installation-specific factors and should be referred to a Licensed Structural Engineer for
clarification before proceeding with any suspension of the equipment. The data presented is based upon the listed component weights.

Suspending the Weatherized Wideline
The WL3082-wx and WL2102-wx are suspended below the AF3082-wx and AF2102-wx Array Frames respectively. The procedures are the same for
each model. The parts necessary for suspension are packaged with the individual loudspeakers. If you are working with both models, be sure to keep
the parts separate. For each model, there are two different length screws, the screw length for the WL2102-wx is shown in parenthesis.
Bottom Loudspeaker in the Array
1. Start with the bottom loudspeaker assembly on a flat, stable surface, remove the four bolts, associated washers, and hardware from both rear
corners as shown. Place aside for later use.
Note: You can add an Array Frame to the bottom Loudspeaker if needed. Refer to the Assembling the Array Frame section in this document.

Assembling the Array
1. Place the pre-assembled top or middle loudspeaker assembly on top of the bottom (or another middle) loudspeaker, aligning the rigging links with
their respective rigging links on the bottom loudspeaker as shown below.
2. Secure the top loudspeaker to the bottom loudspeaker with two L70 cap screws in the rear, and two L70 (L50) cap screws in the front. Torque all
cap screws to 60 in.-lbs.
Note: Each hole on the Rear-center Rigging Link represents 1 degree of angle for setting the splay. The rows are numbered 0, 4, and 8, indicating holes
0 - 10. Use QSC's EASE Focus to determine the proper angles.
