System Requirements

Low Impedance Systems

When used as part of a low impedance system Impact series loudspeakers require only one amplifier channel for correct operation, the frequency splitting between the LF driver and the HF driver being accomplished by the internal passive crossover network built into each enclosure. Select the 16setting on the voltage tap changer on the bottom of the cabinet. Amplifiers should be capable of delivering long term broadband power equal to the loudspeaker’s program power rating at its stated nominal impedance.

Use with Subwoofers

Passive subwoofers such as the TSB-110 can be added to increase low frequency performance without the need for additional power amplifiers. The subwoofer’s internal crossover filters high frequency signals out of the subwoofer cabinet to ensure a clean transition. Connect first to the subwoofer and then link out to the satellite speakers.

Distributed Systems

Impact loudspeakers can be used on 70 volt or 100 volt distributed systems. Connect loudspeakers to a suitable distribution amplifier, making sure that the maximum sum of the loudspeakers’ transformer taps do not exceed the distribution amplifier’s rated power output. Adjust the voltage tap selector to provide the appropriate loudness level.

Mounting and Fixing

Installing the Loudspeaker with the Supplied Wall Bracket

The loudspeaker connections are provided as an integral part of the wall bracket.

Site the bracket on to the mounting surface, making sure there is sufficient free travel vertically and horizontally to allow full angle adjustment of the loudspeaker, and feed the speaker cables through the main bracket assembly from the rear.

Fix the wall bracket securely to the mounting surface using appropriate fixings. The correct hole spacing and bracket orientation are shown here.

Terminate the speaker cable by stripping to length and connecting to the bracket assembly, ensuring correct polarity. Use the smaller Allen key to tighten the grub screws on to the cable. The right terminal is positive (+ve) and the left terminal is negative (-ve).

Offer the loudspeaker up to the bracket and lock into place with a downward motion. This action automatically closes the electrical connections.

Angle the loudspeaker as required and lock the bracket using the larger Allen key provided.

Installing the Loudspeaker with other Wall and Ceiling Brackets

When installing IMPACT loudspeakers with CB-10, WB-10 or OmniMount brackets you will need to terminate the cables directly at the loudspeaker as shown.

Unscrew the M6 countersunk bolts holding the bracket shoe. Leaving the bracket shoe in place attach the wall or ceiling bracket directly to the loudspeaker’s M6 fixing points using the screws provided with the bracket. Angle as necessary and tighten

all fixings.
