    Handling caution
    Do not operate the device if the sound is distorting. Prolonged use in this
    condition could cause overheating and result in fire.
    When choosing a power amplifier for use with this device, make sure that
    the output power of the amplifier is lower than the power capacity of this
    device (see SPECIFICATIONS).
    Even if the output power of the amplifier is lower than the power capacity
    of this device (program), use of excessive input signals resulting in
    clipping may cause damage to the device.
    Malfunction or fire may occur especially when the following sounds or
    noises are generated:
    - feedback, when using a microphone
    - continuous and extreme volume sound from a musical instrument
    - extreme continuous distorted sound
    - noise caused by plugging/unplugging the cable while the amplifier is
    turned on
    NOTICE
    To avoid the possibility of malfunction/damage to the product, damage to
    data, or damage to other property, follow the notices below.
    ƔHandling and Maintenance
    Do not place vinyl, plastic or rubber objects on the device, since this
    might discolor the panel.
    When cleaning the device, use a dry and soft cloth. Do not use paint
    thinners, solvents, cleaning fluids, or chemical-impregnated wiping
    cloths.
    Condensation can occur in the device due to rapid, drastic changes in
    ambient temperature-when the device is moved from one location to
    another, or air conditioning is turned on or off, for example. Using the
    device while condensation is present can cause damage. If there is
    reason to believe that condensation might have occurred, leave the
    device for several hours until the condensation has completely dried out.
    Be sure to observe the amplifier’s rated load impedance (see
    SPECIFICATIONS), particularly when connecting speakers in parallel.
    Connecting an impedance load outside the amplifier’s rated range can
    damage the amplifier.
    When connecting the speakers with high impedance, be sure that the
    total rated input capacity of the speakers does not exceed the output
    power of the amplifier.
    When using a high-impedance speaker connection, make sure the audio
    signal is passed through an 80 Hz or above high-pass filter before being
    input to the speakers.
    ABOUT THE PROTECTION CIRCUIT
    This speaker system has an internal protection circuit that shuts off the
    speaker unit when an excessive input signal is applied.
    If the speaker unit emits no sound, reduce the volume level of the
    amplifier immediately.
    The sound will return automatically in several seconds.
    Do not swing the speaker by its strap.
    Do not place the speaker face down with the grille attached, as
    deformation of the grille may result.
    When placing the speaker face down, always place it on a flat and
    smooth surface.
    Do not touch the speaker driver unit.

    INSTALLING THE SPEAKERS
    Install the speakers onto the ceiling with the supplied hardware. Ensure that
    the strength of the ceiling rail is sufficiently strong.
    Pre-installation (Preparation of the Cable)
    Use stranded wire for cables attached to the Euroblock connector. Strip
    their insulation as shown in the figure and connect them.
    NOTE
    Do not plate stranded wires by solder. Doing so will cause the wire to break.
    1 Put the supplied cutout template to the ceiling and draw a circle by
    tracing it.
    Make sure to use the cutout template so that hole is the correct
    diameter.
    NOTE
    If you use a circular cutter, set the diameter with the cutout template.
    2 Cut the hole by tracing the circle.
    Be careful to prevent chips or powder entering your eyes while
    cutting the hole.
    1 Insert the two tile rails through the cut hole and place them on the
    ceiling surface within your reach. Be sure that each tile rails are
    oriented as shown below.
    2 Insert the folded O-ring through the cut hole and open it in the ceiling.
    3 Secure the O-ring and tile rails with supplied two screws through
    either slot of both O-ring brackets.
    1 Pull the wiring from the amplifier through the cut hole.
    2 Loosen the screw at the right of the terminal cover to open the
    terminal cover and remove the Euroblock connector.
    3 After loosening the terminal screws of the Euroblock connector with a
    flat-blade screwdriver, insert the cable into each terminal and tighten
    the screws. Make sure that cables cannot be pulled out.
    NOTE
    Use a flat-blade screwdriver with a blade less than 3 mm (0.1 in.).

    There are two acceptable wiring methods.
    CAUTION
    When connecting with low impedance, take note of the combined
    resistance.
    Using Loop-Through Terminals
    For this method, cables are connected from terminals 1 and 4 to the
    subsequent speaker. If the Euroblock connector is disconnected from
    a speaker, all subsequent speakers will not work. This can be useful
    to identify which speaker has a problem.
    Paralleling Input Terminals
    For this method, cables are connected to terminals 2 and 3 of each
    speaker. Since the cables are connected via Euroblock connectors,
    subsequent speakers can work even if a problem occurs with a
    speaker.
    4 Plug the connected Euroblock connector into the socket in the
    speaker.
    5 Loosen the screw A of the strain relief clamp.
    6 Remove the screw B of the strain relief clamp.
    If the cable is not to be held, remove the screw A and remove the
    strain relief fitting, then proceed to step 8.

    1 Attach the safety wire to the safety wire ring, and connect the wire to
    an independent support point, such as a joist.
    CAUTION
    Always take measures to prevent the speaker falling down.
    If the safety wire is too short, prepare another wire appropriate for the
    speaker weight and installation conditions. If the wire is too long,
    should the speaker fall, the wire may break as a result of too much
    strain.
    2 Push up the speaker slowly into the ceiling, taking care not to trap the
    cable.

    Anti-Drop Tab
    When all the Anti-Drop Tabs
    cross over the O-ring, the
    speaker is held temporarily. You
    can release your hands from the
    speaker.
    To release the speaker from the
    O-ring, press the Anti-Drop Tabs.
    These are located above the U
    mark near the edge of the
    cabinet’s face.
    3 Turn the screwdriver a half turn counterclockwise to loosen the
    attachment screw. This makes the clamp easier to align in the
    channel.
    4 Turn the screwdriver clockwise to tighten the attachment screw.
    The first turn of the attachment screw aligns the clamp with the
    channel. Further turns move the clamp down the channel to pull the
    speaker up into the ceiling.
    CAUTION
    Do not over-tighten the attachment screw. Otherwise, the
    attachment screw and clamp will break.
    Do not turn any screws that do not have a guide sleeve in the screw
    hole. Otherwise, the speaker may fall or malfunction.
    Select the line voltage/impedance (100V/70V/8Ω) and power tap for 100V/
    70V line distributed system, by rotating the tap selector switch on the front
    side of the speaker with a flat-blade screwdriver.
    CAUTION
    The “X” position should not be selected. The 8Ω position should be selected
    for 8Ω audio systems only. If the setting is incorrect, it may cause
    malfunction of the speaker and amplifier.
    Fit the grille to the cabinet front and turn it clockwise.
    CAUTION
    The grille may fall down if it is attached inadequately. Attach it firmly.
