2.0 WARNINGS

2.1 Important Safety Instructions

Before using your is52 instair loudspeaker, be sure to carefully read the applicable items of these operating instructions and the safety suggestions.

Read these instructions.

Keep these instructions.

Heed all warnings.

Follow all instructions.

The installer is responsible for the correct installation of the loudspeaker and back can. Please consult the relevant construction codes in your region for further information on suitable installation methods.

Tannoy will not be held accountable for any damage caused by incorrect installation.

Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.

4.0 UNPACKING

Carefully open the shipping carton and check for any noticeable damage. Every Tannoy is52 is tested and inspected before leaving the factory and should arrive in perfect condition. If found to be damaged, notify the shipping company immediately. Only the consignee may institute a claim with the carrier for damage incurred during shipping. Be sure to save the carton and packing materials for the carriers inspection.

It is also advisable to save the carton and packing material, even if the speaker is undamaged. Should you ever need to ship the loudspeaker, always use original packaging.

5.0 INSTALLATION

5.1 Installation with back can

1.Lay the loudspeaker cable from the amplifier to the cavity where the loudspeaker will be installed.

2. Thread the cable or conduit through the appropriate entry point on the back can. There are six entry points to choose from.

3. Plug the remaining entry points with the supplied grommets to ensure that the back can is water tight. The grommets need to be hammered into the back can.

4. SAFETY NOTE: If the back can is being installed into a concrete cavity, it is the responsibility of the installer to follow the relevant safety precautions.

5. Terminate and connect the loudspeaker. Go to section 6.0 Connections for wiring and connection instructions, then return to point 6 below.

6. Place the back can into the cavity.

7. Affix the loudspeaker to the back can using the supplied fittings. See fig 1.

8. Attach the grille using supplied fittings. See fig 2.

IMPORTANT care must be taken not to over tighten the screws, as the grille is mounted on rubber spacers.

5.0 INSTALLATION

5.2 Installation without back can

1.Lay the loudspeaker cable from the amplifier to the cavity where the loudspeaker will be installed.

2. Terminate and connect the loudspeaker. Go to section 6.0 Connections for wiring and connection instructions, then return to point 3 below.

3. Place the loudspeaker into the stair cavity and attach the loudspeaker brackets to the surface using the appropriate fittings. See fig 3.

IMPORTANT care must be taken not to over tighten the screws, as the grille is mounted on rubber spacers.

fig 3.

6.0 CONNECTIONS

6.1 Wire Runs

The is52 is fitted with two 4-pole Neutrik™ Speakon sockets (NL4MP) for connection to the amplifier. These NL4 sockets are paralleled within the enclosure. See fig 4.

Caution: Do not attempt to connect the speakers to any source or amplifier that is turned on. Be sure the source or amplifier is off prior to connecting the speakers.

Parallel or series wiring is commonly acceptable for the is52 speaker to gain correct amplifier loading.

Avoid series wiring your is52 speakers with any other speaker type or brand.

fig 4.

6.2 Polarity

For a typical audio installation, all speakers in a system will be connected with the same respective polarity.

Tannoy has adopted the conventional wiring standard for the is52 loudspeaker:

PIN 1+ is positive

PIN 1- is negative

Polarity - Speaker wires are marked for polarity consistency so that you can determine the positive and negative identity of the individual wires within the molded pair insulation. Polarity shown by either a color stripe on the insulation, by ridges molded into one side of the insulation, the color of the insulation case around the wire or by the color type or colors of the wires/wire itself (copper or silver).

Important: In order to maintain correct polarity, always connect speaker wire using the positive (+) terminal on the amplifier to the positive (+) wire and the negative (-) terminal on the amplifier to the negative (-) wire.

7.0 TROUBLESHOOTING

Distorted or unnatural sound can indicate poor connections, defective electronics, damaged source material or speaker failure. If only one of your speakers has poor sound quality, check the speaker wire and audio connections.

If you hear obvious distortion from the speakers Immediately lower the volume level of your amplifier. Those sounds often indicate that either the amplifier or the speaker is being over driven and damage can result in playing your source material at high volume levels for prolonged periods of time. You should also avoid using extreme amounts of equalization.
