1. SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

Before installation or use, be sure to carefully read all the instructions in this section for correct and safe operation.

Be sure to follow all the precautionary instructions in this section, which contain important warnings and/or cautions regarding safety.

After reading, keep this manual handy for future reference.

Safety Symbol and Message Conventions

Safety symbols and messages described below are used in this manual to prevent bodily injury and property damage which could result from mishandling. Before operating your product, read this manual first and understand the safety symbols and messages so you are thoroughly aware of the potential safety hazards.

WARNING

Indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if mishandled, could result in death or serious personal injury.

When Installing the Unit

Install the unit only in a location that can structurally support the weight of the unit and the mounting bracket. Doing otherwise may result in the unit falling down and causing personal injury and/or property damage.

Do not use other methods than specified to mount the bracket. Extreme force is applied to the unit and the unit could fall off, possibly resulting in personal injuries.

Use nuts and bolts that are appropriate for the ceiling's or wall's structure and composition. Failure to do so may cause the speaker to fall, resulting in material damage and possible personal injury.

Tighten each nut and bolt securely. Ensure that the bracket has no loose joints after installation to prevent accidents that could result in personal injury.

Do not mount the unit in locations exposed to constant vibration. The mounting bracket can be damaged by excessive vibration, potentially causing the unit to fall, which could result in personal injury.

(F-2000B, F-2000BT, F-2000W, F-2000WT only) Since the unit is designed for in-door use, do not install it outdoors. If installed outdoors, the aging of parts causes the unit to fall off, resulting in personal injury. Also, when it gets wet with rain, there is a danger of electric shock.

(F-2000BTWP, F-2000WTWP only)

When installing the unit in the snowy area, take appropriate measures to prevent snow from lying on the unit. If the snow lies on the unit, the unit may fall, causing personal injuries.

Do not use anti-rust lubricant. If it contacts resin or rubber parts, they could deteriorate and cause the unit to fall, possibly resulting in personal injury.

Avoid installing the speaker in locations close to the seashore or in indoor swimming facilities that are not well ventilated. In such locations the bracket may be vulnerable to corrosion, eventually allowing the speaker to fall resulting in personal injury.

CAUTION

Indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if mishandled, could result in moderate or minor personal injury, and/or property damage.

When Installing the Unit

Avoid touching the unit's sharp metal edge to prevent injury.

To avoid electric shocks, be sure to switch off the unit's power when connecting speakers.

When the Unit is in Use

Do not place heavy objects on the unit as this may cause it to fall or break which may result in personal injury and/or property damage. In addition, the object itself may fall off and cause injury and/or damage.

Do not operate the unit for an extended period of time with the sound distorting. This is an indication of a malfunction, which in turn can cause heat to generate and result in a fire.

Do not stand or sit on, nor hang down from the unit as this may cause it to fall down or drop, resulting in personal injury and/or property damage.

Have the unit checked periodically by the shop from where it was purchased. Failure to do so may result in corrosion or damage to the unit or its mounting bracket that could cause the unit to fall, possibly causing personal injury.

2. GENERAL DESCRIPTION

TOA's F-2000 Series Speakers are compact two-way speaker systems designed for high efficiency, wide range, and high power input handling capability. These speaker systems can be installed in a manner ideal for the location and intended application.

3. FEATURES

100º horizontal x 100º vertical wide directivity high-frequency horn.

Coverage angle can be changed to 80º horizontal x 80º vertical by attaching the supplied horn adapter.

Supplied bracket permits mounting to a wall, ceiling, or an optional speaker stand.

Combined use of the supplied bracket and optional mounting bracket allows the speakers to be mounted in many different applications, including pole mounting,*1 clusters and horizontal ceiling mounting*2.

Both the F-2000BTWP and F-2000WTWP feature a waterproof design (IPX4 standard) for protection from any adverse effects of outdoor installations.

*1 Applies to the F-2000BTWP and F-2000WTWP.

*2 Applies to the F-2000B, F-2000BT, F-2000W, and F-2000WT.

5. IMPEDANCE CHANGE (F-2000BT, F-2000BTWP, F-2000WT, and F-2000WTWP only)

To change the impedance, use a standard screwdriver to rotate the rotary switch on the speaker's rear to select the desired input power.

Note: The switch is factory-preset to 170 .

Important

Never set this switch to the "83 " position when operating the speaker on 100 V line. Failure to follow this instruction could result in damage to the speaker or amplifier.

6. ABOUT THE INPUT OVERLOAD PROTECTION CIRCUITRY

(F-2000B and F-2000W only)

The speaker system features internal input overload protection circuitry for both high and low frequencies.

If an excessive input level is fed to the unit, the protection circuitry automatically cuts off the signal to the speaker driver.

A drastic reduction in sound volume for the high or low frequency range indicates that the protection circuitry has been enabled.

In such cases, simply reduce the amplifier volume. The protection circuitry will automatically reset in approximately 10 seconds. After reset, maintain the volume at a level slightly lower than before.

Note

This protection circuitry does not completely protect the unit against input overload. Depending on the type or duration of excessive power input, the protection circuitry might not be enabled, resulting in damage to the speaker driver. Also, if the excessive power input continues for a long period of time, the circuitry may not be capable of resetting to its original condition.

Take care so that the speakers are not exposed to excessive power input.

7. NOTES ON OUTDOOR INSTALLATION (F-2000BTWP and F-2000WTWP only)

Be sure to mount the speaker in a vertical (portrait-style) orientation.

Adjust the speaker's tilt angle within the shaded range shown below:

[Wall and pole: 0º horizontal to 45º downward]

Note

Mount the speaker so that its rear-mounted terminal cover is positioned on the upper side.

(horizontal)

45°

[Under eaves: 15º downward to 45º downward]

Note

The speaker faces 15° downward when mounting

to a horizontal surface.

15° 0°

(horizontal)

(30°)

45°

Install the speaker in locations exposed to an ambient temperature range of –10ºC to +50ºC. Exceeding this range could cause speaker failure.

Use the supplied terminal cover when connecting the speaker cable.

Notes

For the speaker cable, use a cable with a diameter of 6 – 10 mm, which will fit the cable bushing.

To ensure waterproof capabilities, firmly mount the terminal cover to the speaker and tighten the bushing on the cover.

Step 1. Feed the speaker cable through the bushing and terminal cover, then connect the cable to the input terminal.

Step 2. Attach the terminal cover to the speaker.

Attach the cover while pulling the cable so that it is not entangled inside the terminal cover.

Step 3. Hold the terminal cover tightly to the speaker using the supplied screws.

Step 4. Tighten the bushing.

Note

After tightening the bushing by hand, use a tool to further tighten it another 90º (1/4-turn) or so. Note that parts can be damaged by over-tightening.
