FEATURES AND BENEFITS

THREE MODELS DESIGNED FOR USE WITH PLASMA OR OTHER FLAT-PANELDISPLAYS

The largest model, the PHD60, is designed for use with plasma or other flat-paneldisplays of60-inchesor more. The PHD42 complements42-inchand over displays, while the PHD30 works with30-inchesor larger displays. Except for differences in the transducer complement and performance, all three models feature similar technologies, For example: the PHD60 and 42 feature a3-wayloudspeaker design, while the PHD30 features a2-waydesign. All offer voice matching sound quality and exceptional detail over a wide listening area.

5-1/4-INCHTCC WOOFERS WITHCONE-FORWARD™DESIGN ANDBUTYL-RUBBERSUSPENSION

The PHD60/42/30 features newly-developedwoofer-conematerial that combinesinjection-moldedpolypropylene with talc, carbon, and ceramic (TCC) stiffening agents. As a result, the cone offers extreme stiffness and light weight for accurate, dynamic response. Ourpatent-pendingCone Forward™ design positions the woofer cone at the front of the baffle fornatural-soundingbass and clear, open midrange response. Additionally, the use of abutyl-rubbersuspension offers substantial benefits, including increased movement without mechanical limitations, and improved midrange damping for better detail and clarity.

1-1/2-INCHFLUID-COOLEDTETERON HYPERBOLICDOME MIDRANGE DRIVER

The PHD60 and PHD42 also feature a Fluid-CooledTeteronHyperbolic-DomeMidrange Driver that provides high sound pressures to reproduce critical mid frequencies with exceptional accuracy.

1-INCHFLUID-COOLEDTETERONTRI-LAMINATETWEETER

The PHD60/42/30’s Fluid-CooledTeteron Tweeter employs atri-laminatedesign consisting of an inner textile layer, which forms the dome, a high damping layer to eliminate unwanted resonances, and an outside layer of urethane to add stiffness and prevent breakup modes. The result is a transparently clear, sweet,natural-soundingtweeter, which still maintains extended frequency response.

2

ADJUSTABLE, DISPERSION-CONTROLLINGMIDRANGE/ TWEETER POD ENABLES PRECISE IMAGING

The PHD60 and PDH42 each feature a unique Midrange/Tweeter pod that can be rotated and pivoted to enable precise imaging regardless of placement. The pod accommodates vertical or horizontal installations and can be set by the installer after each loudspeaker is mounted. Included are variable treble and midrange level controls for additional response contouring.

NILES’ HD HIGH-DEFINITIONVOICE MATCHING

Ensures compatibility with other Niles HD High-Definitionin-wall,on-wall,andceiling-mountmodels to accommodate a wide range of system designs.

ADVANCED BASS-REFLEXDESIGN FOR ENHANCED DYNAMIC IMPACT

The PHD60/42/30’s bass-reflexdesign enhanceslow-frequencyresponse and dynamic impact. Moreover, the rigid extruded aluminum enclosure helps deliver accurate bass response with low distortion.

LOOKS GREAT AND EASY TO INSTALL

The PHD60/42/30’s contemporary finish matches popular flat-paneldisplays, and its integrated wall mount brackets make installation quick and easy.

DOLBY® DIGITAL READY

INSTALLATION CONSIDERATIONS

WALL MOUNTING

The Niles PHD60/42/30 loudspeaker is equipped with an included wall-mountbracket for quick and easy installation on a wall. Ideally, a PHD60/42/30 should be placed so that its bracket can be installed on underlying wall studs. If stud mounting is impractical,dry-wallanchors (rated for at least 40 pounds) can be used to mount the loudspeaker between studs (see INSTALLING THEWALL-MOUNTBRACKETS on page 7).

RECOMMENDED AMPLIFIER POWER

For satisfactory performance, we recommend using a home theater receiver (or amplifier) with a power rating of 10 to 250 watts for the PHD60,10 to 200 watts for the PHD42, and 10 to 150 watts for the PHD30. Most loudspeakers are not damaged by large amplifiers, but rather by small

amplifiers. If your system is playing loud music, a small amplifier will run out of power very quickly and can create damaging “clipping” distortions. A more powerful amplifier will play at the same volume without distorting. See OPERATION on page 13 for more information about amplifier clipping distortion.

LOUDSPEAKER WIRE

Use 2-conductorloudspeaker wire when connecting loudspeakers to your receiver or amplifier. For most applications, we recommend using 16or18-gaugewire. For wiring runs longer than 80 feet, we recommend14-gaugewire. Thespring-loadedterminals of the PHD60/42/30 will accommodate up to12-gaugewire directly. Larger sizes can be accommodated via

pin connectors.

When running wire inside walls or ceilings, always use (CL-2orCL-3)rated cable. In some areas, conduit is also required. For atrouble-freeinstallation,low-voltagewire such as loudspeaker wire must be run in accordance with the National Electrical Code and any applicable provisions of the local building code. If you are unsure of the correct installation techniques, wire jacket, or type of conduit to use, consult a professional audio/video installer, building contractor, or the local building and inspection department.

TECH TIP

Wire size is expressed by its AWG (American Wire Gauge) number – the lower the number, the larger the wire. For example, 12 AWG is physically larger than 14 AWG.

LOUDSPEAKER PLACEMENT

The Niles PHD60/42/30 loudspeaker is designed for use in front left-,center-,or front rightchannel applications. Any model can bewall-mountedusing its includedwall-mountbracket. Forrear-channelapplications, we recommend using a Niles HD FX or CM6HDfx loudspeaker.

PLACING PHD60/42/30’S AS THE FRONT LEFT AND RIGHT LOUDSPEAKERS

In a home theater, the intelligibility of dialog and action reproduced by the front speakers is paramount! The position of the loudspeakers plays a very important role in how clear the sound is and how a stereo image is created.

The PHD60/42/30’s are designed specifically for use with plasma or flat-paneldisplays in a home theater system. The placement process is quick and easy:

At the proposed site, make sure the sound will not be blocked or reflected off furniture or other objects. The listener should have a direct line of sight with the front of each loudspeaker. The ideal listening position (e.g., favorite chair or couch) should be centered with the middle of plasma or flat-paneldisplay

Place the speakers with the ports on the bottom on either side of display, as shown in Figure 1 (also see INSTALLING THEWALL-MOUNTBRACKETS on page 7). In applications where there is a center channel, you may choose to space the left and right main speakers farther apart for a “bigger than life” sound with Dolby® encoded movies and TV shows.

PLACING PHD60/42/30’S AS THE FRONT LEFT AND RIGHT LOUDSPEAKERS (CONTINUED)

As for placement height, place front left and right speakers vertically on either side of the display, so that their tweeters are not more than 24 inches above or below the center-channelloudspeaker’s tweeter (seeFigure 2 below).

PLACING A PHD60/42/30 AS THE CENTER-CHANNELLOUDSPEAKER

The center-channelloudspeaker is the workhorse in a home theater system. It handles all of the critical dialog and is vitally important in creating the illusion of sounds emanating directly from the picture. Here are some tips for obtaining optimumcenter-channelperformance:

Recommended PHD60 loudspeaker placement for the center channel is shown here. Placement of the PHD42/30 is similar.

In a typical installation, place the PHD60/42/30 horizontally, directly above or below the plasma or flat-paneldisplay. Make sure the loudspeaker is not placed too high or low relative to the left and right speakers, as shown inFigure 2.

For installations where a perforated projection

screen will be used, place the PHD60/42/30 with grille removed, either horizontally or vertically, behind the screen at ear level, as shown in Figure 3.

INSTALLING THE WALL-MOUNTBRACKETS

TOOLS AND PARTS

We recommend using the following tools and parts to install the PHD60/42/30 wall-mountbrackets:

Electric drill and drill bits

Philips screwdrivers or driver bit set

Stud finder

Eight wood screws with (optional) dry-wallanchors rated for at least 40 pounds

Pencil

Level

Protective eyewear

PRECAUTIONS

Before starting the installation, please observe the following precautions:

Turn off all system power before making any connections.

Always wear protective eyewear when using tools.

Make sure hands are clean before installation.

Wear gloves when working with fiberglass insulation.

INSTALLATION

1.At each proposed site, use a stud finder to locate studs (which should be on 16-inchcenters) for possible use in the installation. If the studs do not line up with a desired placement location, the PHD60/42/30wall-mountbracket can still be mounted on a dry wall with appropriatedry-wallscrews and anchors.

IMPORTANT: DO NOT USE PLASTIC EXPANSION OR THREADED WALL ANCHORS FOR DRY WALL INSTALLATION. CONSULT YOUR LOCAL NILES DEALER OR HOME HARDWARE STORE FOR RECOMMENDATIONS FOR YOUR HOME THEATER APPLICATION.

INSTALLATION (CONTINUED)

2.For each loudspeaker, orient and tape the enclosed mounting template to the wall at the desired placement location, as shown in Figure 4. Use a level to verify tilt is zero. Be sure to account for any moldings that may interfere with the loudspeaker cabinet upon installation.

Bracket Template

Figure 4. The PHD mounting template is shown in horizontal and vertical positions (with TOP side up).

3.Follow the directions included on the template. Drill four small mounting holes at the designated locations noted on the template. If you also plan to run loudspeaker wire in the wall, you’ll need to create a cutout for it within the noted wire boundary (see Figure 4). When drilling is complete, remove each mounting template.

4.Use the stamped (TOP) label to orient each mounting bracket and run loudspeaker wire through its opening for later connection. Fasten each bracket to the wall with appropriate mounting hardware.

FINISHING THE INSTALLATION

CONNECTING THE LOUDSPEAKER

1.At each loudspeaker, separate the loudspeaker wire so that at least 2 inches of each conductor are free. Strip away 1/4 inch of insulation from each loudspeaker wire.

2.On each set of loudspeaker connectors, press down the spring-loadedlever, insert the appropriate conductor, and then release the lever, as shown inFigure 5. Gently tug on the loudspeaker wire to make sure it is held in place. If not, repeat this procedure until it is. Make sure that only the bare wire is clamped in the connector.

NOTE: OBSERVE CORRECT POLARITY: POSITIVE (+) GOES INTO THE RED TERMINAL AND NEGATIVE (–)GOES INTO THE BLACK TERMINAL. IF YOU ARE UNSURE OF WIRE POLARITY, SEE THE SECTION CHECKING LOUDSPEAKER PHASE ON PAGE 11.

3.If a mounting bracket was installed on the wall, align each loudspeaker with the two mounting holes (on its bracket) and let it slide down into the keyslot on the bracket to fasten it to the wall, as shown in Figure 6.

CONNECTING THE LOUDSPEAKER (CONTINUED)

4.Connect the other end of the loudspeaker wires to the home theater receiver (or amplifier) in the same way as steps 1 and 2.

5.Turn on the home theater receiver and calibrate all loudspeakers in the system according to the receiver manufacturer’s instructions.

PHD60/42: SETTING THE TWEETER/MIDRANGE POD

Each PHD60/42 features an adjustable Tweeter/Midrange Pod on the front baffle for proper loudspeaker orientation and precise imaging, as shown in Figure 7. Adjust the pod as follows:

Figure 7. Each PHD60/42 includes an adjustable Tweeter/Midrange Pod that can be rotated up to 90 degrees for proper loudspeaker orientation and pivoted for precise imaging.

For a vertical installation, no adjustments are required. The Tweeter/Midrage pod is optimally set at the factory for this placement.

For a horizontal installation (e.g., center-channelapplication), perform the following steps to rotate the Tweeter/Midrage pod:

1.Using the enclosed Allen wrench, remove the four (4) Allen-headscrews, (seeFigure 7).

2.Gently pull the pod away from the enclosure and rotate it 90° in either direction (see Figure 7). Be careful not to disconnect any attached wires during rotation.

3.Place the pod back into the enclosure and reinstall the four (4) Allen-headscrews.

If desired, after vertical or horizontal installation, set the imaging by pressing the pod’s edge to aim the drivers at the listening position (see Figure 7).

PHD60/42: ACOUSTIC FINE TUNING

Each PHD60/42 also features variable TREBLE and MIDRANGE controls on the front baffle for acoustic fine-tuningafter placement, as shown inFigure 8. Adjust these controls as follows:

Figure 8. Each PHD60/42 includes variable TREBLE and MIDRANGE controls with up to 3 dB of boost or cut in the response.

Initially set both TREBLE and MIDRANGE control to 0 dB.

If a PHD60/42 is placed in a room with highly reflective surfaces like glass or tile or the reproduced sound is too bright, decrease the TREBLE setting by as much as –3dB to lower thehigh-frequencyresponse. If the room has heavy drapes or is wallpapered, try increasing the TREBLE setting by as much as +3 dB to brighten thehigh-frequencyresponse.

Listen to dialog being reproduced on the PHD60/42. If you want it more pronounced, increase the MIDRANGE setting by as much as +3 dB to enhance the mid-frequencyresponse. If the dialog is too pronounced, decrease the MIDRANGE setting by as much as–3dB to lower themid-frequencyresponse.

CHECKING LOUDSPEAKER PHASE

Loudspeaker wire has two conductors. On both your loudspeaker and amplifier, one conductor is attached to the negative (–)terminals, while the other is attached to the positive (+) terminals. Usually, the wire is marked for your convenience, but the marking can be done in the following different ways:

• Stripe on one wire

 

 

• Ribbed area you can feel on one conductor

 

 

Different colors of metal wire on each conductor

 

 

Fabric strand or string wound into one of the conductors

CHECKING LOUDSPEAKER PHASE (CONTINUED)

Of course, there are some wires that appear completely identical. So be careful, or you might make a connection mistake. If you do, one loudspeaker will be playing “out-of-phase”with the other loudspeaker. A pair ofout-of-phaseloudspeakers works against each other, and the sound of the two playing together will be lacking in bass and sound “phasey.” If you suspect the sound is not right, and you cannot see any markings on the wire, try this simple test:

1.Stand halfway between the loudspeakers.

2.Play some music with the amplifier or receiver set to Mono.

3.Listen to the richness of the bass and the loudness of the sound.

4.Turn off the amplifier and reverse the connections on one amplifier channel only.

5.Repeat the listening test with the same volume control setting. When the sound has a richer bass and is slightly louder, the loudspeakers are working together or “in-phase.”

INSTALLING THE GRILLE

If desired, at each loudspeaker, carefully fit the grille to its cabinet. Starting with one corner, gently press the grille frame around the loudspeaker’s edge, pushing it in at each of the recessed holes.

OPERATION

LISTENING AT HIGHER VOLUMES

Achieving a reasonable volume of sound in a large room requires more amplifier power than it does in a small room. It is possible to turn the volume up so high that the amplifier runs out of power. This creates “clipping” distortion, which will make treble sound very harsh and unmusical.

When you hear harsh-soundingtreble from any good loudspeaker, turn the volume down immediately! Those harsh sounds are masking much more powerfulultra-high-frequencysound spikes, which will quickly damage any fine loudspeaker. You are much less likely to damage a loudspeaker driven by a large amplifier because it will be very loud before any clipping distortion is produced.

CLEANING

To clean the enclosure, use a dampened soft cloth or paper towel. To clean the grille, use a gentle vacuum cleaner.
