We also recommend you keep this instruction 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

CAUTION

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

WARNING

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.

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.

When the Unit is in Use

Should the following irregularity be found during use, immediately switch off the power, disconnect the power supply plug from the AC outlet and contact your nearest TOA dealer. Make no further attempt to operate the unit in this condition as this may cause fire or electric shock.

·If you detect smoke or a strange smell coming from the unit.

·If water or any metallic object gets into the unit

·If it is malfunctioning (no tone sounds.)

CAUTION

When the Unit is in Use

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.

2. GENERAL DESCRIPTION

The TOA HB-1 is a high-power, wall/ceiling-mounted sub-woofer system employing a 20 cm speaker unit. Although small in size, the HB-1 provides clear super-low frequency sound reproduction thanks to its Acoustic Super Woofer enclosure construction.

3. FEATURES

A large, 110 mm-diameter ferrite magnet, a long, 35 mm-diameter voice coil, an aluminum bobbin, and a rubber roll edge combine to permit large voice coil movement at high power input.

The Acoustic Super Woofer system enclosure creates an acoustic band-pass filter that reproduces superlow frequencies down to 45 Hz and realizes slow-slope phase characteristics.

The enclosure is 103 mm in depth from the mounting surface, and suitable for mounting in a wall with two- by-four construction.

Rotating lock tabs permit the speaker to be temporarily fixed during installation. Also, the speaker has provisions for wire or bolt suspension.

The speaker can be converted to high-impedance applications with the addition of the optional MT-S0601 matching transformer.

4. HANDLING PRECAUTIONS

No anti-magnetic provisions have been made for the HB-1 speaker. Therefore, take care to keep the unit sufficiently away from televisions, monitors or computer-related equipment.
