Self-Powered Loudspeakers

The Milan Mi0 self-powered loudspeaker is equipped with an integrated two-channel amplifier module driving the high frequency and low frequency components independently, taking consistent performance, convenience and ease of use to a new level. Milan eliminates the need for separate amplifier racks and controllers, as well as the attendant cabling. This makes setting up at gigs and obtaining a consistent sound in different venues a faster and simpler process.

The amplifiers are exactly matched to the known parameters of the loudspeaker components, and are therefore able to produce the optimum power for the drivers. By placing the amplifiers in the cabinet it is possible to keep the loudspeaker cables extremely short to eliminate resistive losses, so effectively all the power from the amplifiers is transferred to the drivers.

The on-board electronics provides a mic and line input with two band EQ. Fast-acting limiters allow you to achieve higher average sound pressure level, reduce the possibility of driver damage, and help to ensure better long-term system reliability.

Using Milan Mi0 with Subwoofers

Improved bass response and higher overall sound pressure level can be achieved by adding subbass loudspeakers to the Milan system. This also reduces mechanical stress on the Milan loudspeaker’s low frequency driver, since most of the low frequency content in the signal is routed to the subwoofer.

It is recommended that you connect the full range signal from the mixer first to the subwoofer(s), and from there to the Milan Mi0.

Using Milan Mi0 as a Floor Monitor

Reduce the level of the BASS CONTROL when using Milan as a floor monitor, which will avoid any low frequency boominess due to the proximity of the floor that can detract from clear and intelligible monitor sound.

If you are using Milan as part of a larger multi-channel monitor system and where drums may be part of the monitor mix, it is recommended that kick drum EQ is used sparingly and carefully.

Model Information

Milan Mi0 Self-Powered Loudspeaker

The Milan Mi0 is a self-powered sound reinforcement loudspeaker designed for many different portable and permanently installed applications.

It consists of a custom 10” low frequency driver, matched with a 1” high frequency compression driver on a 90° horizontal x 60° vertical Converging Elliptical Waveguide providing smooth and even coverage over a wide audience area, together with a two channel amplifier module providing microphone and line level input channels and equalisation.

These high quality professional components are housed in a lightweight, stylish and durable trapezoidal moulded polypropylene cabinet that is instantly adaptable to front- of-house or floor monitoring applications. The cabinet is extensively ribbed and internally damped. This design feature increases the cabinet’s rigidity and eliminates internal reflections, which translates into better transient response and improved bass reproduction. It also keeps the weight of the cabinet as low as possible.

Mi0 is equipped with a dual angle pole mount socket which allows it to be angled down for better coverage when used

with tripod stands or for mounting on top of bass cabinets. Lifting and carrying is made easy with the provision of a comfortable scoop handle on the top of the cabinet.

The Mi0 cabinet provides M10 rigging points on the top and bottom for suspending horizontally or vertically in permanent installs.

Connector wiring

The amplifier microphone and line inputs are designed to accept balanced (three conductor) connections, and it is recommended that this method be used since it offers the best rejection of noise, hum and radio interference, especially where long cable runs are involved. XLR connectors should be wired pin 2 hot (positive), pin 3 cold (negative) and pin 1 ground, while the standard wiring for 3-pole jack plug connectors is tip hot (positive), ring cold (negative) and sleeve ground as shown below.

Balanced male XLR

Balanced female XLR

Some signal sources such as keyboards, acoustic guitars with on-board electronics commonly provide only an unbalanced output on a 2-pole jack connector. The Milan loudspeaker line input can handle these connections without any rewiring since pin 3 (-ve) of the input is automatically grounded by the jack plug.

1. Mains Connector and Fuseholder

Mains power is connected to the loudspeaker via a combination IEC connector and fuseholder. Make sure that the Milan Mi0 loudspeaker is turned off before connecting mains power. Replace the fuse only with the same type and rating.

2. Mains Switch

Rocker switch turns mains power on to the loudspeaker. Make sure the Mic Gain and Line Level controls are fully off (MIN) and power up other external equipment such as a mixer before switching on.

3. Ground Lift switch

Safely lifts the signal ground of the balanced audio inputs from the ground of the amplifier. Select position as appropriate in order to minimise hum.

4. Microphone Input

Balanced female XLR connector for use with a variety of balanced and unbalanced dynamic microphones. The mic input is not suitable for condenser microphones that require phantom power. The input is balanced to avoid hum loops and RF interference, and is wired pin 2 hot, pin 3 cold.

5. Line Level Input

Combination jack/XLR connector that will accept a wide range of balanced and unbalanced line level sources such as keyboards, acoustic guitars with on-board electronics and other line level sources such as CD players and DJ mixers.

6. Mix Out

An unbalanced line level output on a male XLR that connects to additional powered Milan loudspeakers. This output contains a mix of all connected sources and is post-EQ. Note that adjusting the equalisation will similarly affect any additional Milan loudspeakers connected from this output.

7. Line Level Control

Rotary level control which attenuates the input signal level of the connected instrument / line source.

8. Treble Control and 9. Bass control

The bass control provides 6dB of boost or cut at 90H with a shelving curve shape, and the treble control provides 6dB of boost or cut at 8kHz with a shelving curve shape. Always use equalisation sparingly, aiming to cut rather than boost especially when the loudspeaker is used near boundaries such as walls or floors.

10. Mic Gain Control

Rotary level control which attenuates the input signal level of the connected microphone. Allows the mic signal to be optimised for the first and subsequent loudspeakers connected to the MIX OUT connector.

11. Limit Indicator

Illuminates green to indicate the presence of signal at the amplifier input. Illuminates red when the amplifier’s output is limited. Frequent and/or continuous lighting of the limit LED indicates overdriving. If this occurs reduce the input level to the loudspeaker or enlarge your system with additional loudspeakers.

12. Power Indicator

Illuminates green to indicate that mains power is connected and powered up.

Connection Diagrams

Small duo setup using the integrated mixer and Mix Out

The built in two channel mixer allows the simultaneous use of a low impedance dynamic microphone and a line level source. The line level source could be an acoustic instrument such as a guitar with either passive or active on-board electrics, a keyboard, or MP3 player. Connect dynamic microphones directly to the mic input connector, and adjust the volume level. Connect line sources to the combo jack/XLR connector and adjust the volume control. Use the MIX OUT function to daisy-chain to additional Milan loudspeakers.

Stereo PA with an external mixer

Two Milan loudspeakers form the left and right elements of a stereo PA setup with all signal sources connected to an external mixing console. Connect the outputs of the mixer to the Mi0 line inputs using either balanced XLR cables, or balanced or unbalanced jack cables. Bring up the master faders on the mixer, ensuring that the outputs are not clipping, and then adjust both loudspeakers’ level controls to the desired loudness. For consistent balance and response set the tone controls to approximately the same positions on both cabinets.

Stereo PA with an external mixer and subwoofers

In this example, sub frequencies are routed to separate subwoofers in order to gain extended frequency response and higher overall sound level. Connect the mixer output first to the subwoofers and then loop up to the Milan loudspeakers. Connect the outputs of the subwoofers to the Mi0 line inputs using either balanced XLR cables, or balanced or unbalanced jack cables. The tone controls on both cabinets should be set to the same positions, nominally flat to begin with. Ensure that the mixer outputs are not clipping, and then adjust both loudspeakers’ level controls to the desired loudness.

Loudspeaker Placement

In order to avoid the possibility of feedback locate the loudspeakers in front of your microphones and do not point microphones directly at the front of a loudspeaker.

When using speaker stands, try to raise the loudspeakers as high as practically possible (at least higher than the heads of the audience) since people are very good absorbers of sound, especially at high frequencies. You also have the option to point them down using

the alternate angle provided for by the built-in dual angle pole holder. Doing this will improve the coverage for

both near and far audience members.

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS: make sure that any speaker stands you use are capable of taking the weight of the loudspeaker, and that stands are placed on a flat, level and stable surface. Make sure that the legs do not present a trip hazard. Take care when lifting the speakers on to the stand; ask someone else to help you if needed.

The same applies to using Milan loudspeakers mounted on straight poles on top of bass cabinets or subwoofers. Adjustable height poles or stands allow you to fine tune the height of the loudspeakers to suit your venue.

Do not place your loudspeakers too close to turntables as this may induce rumble or low frequency feedback from the tone arms. Isolate turntables on shock mounts.

Use equalisation sparingly. Start with the bass and treble controls at their neutral position (no boost or cut). Cut a little bass to tame any boomy frequencies in the room, and add a little treble to help vocal intelligibility.

Consider adding subwoofers and/or further loudspeakers if the overall sound level or low frequency response is not enough for the room.

Installing the Milan loudspeaker

Using the M10 rigging points

The Milan loudspeaker can be permanently installed in a venue, suspended from eyebolts fitted to the internal M10 rigging points on the top and bottom of the cabinet. Three possible orientations are available: vertically upright, or upside down to position the high frequency driver closer to the audience, or sideways if required.

Insert M10 load-rated shoulder eyebolts into the threaded rigging points and tighten. The front rigging points should take the majority of the load while the rear rigging point should be used for angling the cabinet downwards only.

When installing the cabinet sideways, pick up from either of the two front eyebolt pairs, and bridle the

two rear eyebolt points to provide a single pullback for adjusting the downward angle.

Wall Mounting

The Milan loudspeaker can be conveniently wall mounted using the PB-55 pole mount wall bracket, which simply locates into the pole mount socket in the bottom of the cabinet.

Mount the bracket to the wall using suitable fixings, and locate the loudspeaker onto the pole mount bracket. Rotate and angle the loudspeaker to optimise coverage and tighten the locking mechanism to stop the loudspeaker from being inadvertently removed.
