RIGGING

The FUSSION 3000 cabinets are fitted
with rigging points shown in the diagram
below.
WARNING: Never at-
tempt to suspend the
FUSSION 3000 active
loudspeakers by their
handles. If you want to
suspend them, use the rigging points only.
You can suspend the FUSSION 3000
from the four fly points located on the top
of the cabinet using forged shoulder eye-
bolts. A working load limit (WLL) of 387
lbs. (176 kg) is appropriate for this enclo-
sure. This WLL takes into account a 5:1
industry regulated design factor with an ad-
ditional 2:1 design factor for weathering.
The fly points located on the sides of the
cabinet are designed to be used with ATM
Fly-Ware® MEGS Pivotal Series Flying
Hardware Systems. The MEGS-PB2 Pivotal
Brace attaches to the bracket in the side of
the cabinet. Use this with the MEGS-PF2
(2 suspension points) or MEGS-PF6 (6 sus-
pension points) to suspend the loudspeakers
in a vertical column. The MEGS-PB2 Piv-
otal Brace has a WLL of 400 lbs. (181 kg)
and the MEGS-PF2 and MEGS-PF6 have a
WLL of 2000 lbs. (907 kg).
The bottom of the FUSSION 3000 cabi-
net has a Pull Back Plate. Loosen the two
screws and slide the plate out so it extends
beyond the edge of the cabinet, then re-
tighten the screws. Use the extended
bracket for pulling back on the bottom of
the cabinet to aim it over the area of cover-
age as required.
WARNING: Consult a professional
rigger or structural engineer prior to sus-
pending loudspeakers from a structure
not intended for that use. Always know
the working load limit of the structure
supporting the loudspeaker array. Always
maintain a 5:1 design factor throughout
the rigging system.

AC POWER
The FUSSION 3000 is shipped with a
connector that mates with the AC recep-
tacle on the rear panel. Use heavy gauge
wire for the linecord to avoid power losses
across the wire.
The following guide should be followed
when wiring a linecord:
Hot
Neutral
Earth (Ground)
NEUTRAL
WHITE (115V) OR
BROWN (230V)
MALE
GROUND
GREEN
W/YELLOW
STRIPE (115V)
or GREEN (230V)
HOT
BLACK (115V) OR
BLUE (230V)
Be sure the FUSSION 3000 is plugged
into an outlet that is able to supply the cor-
rect voltage specified for your model. If the
voltage should drop below 97% of the
specified line voltage, the built-in amplifiers
will no longer be able to supply rated power.
(They will continue to operate down to 80%
of the rated line voltage, but won't reach full
power, resulting in lower headroom.)
Under maximum S.P.L. conditions, where
musical peaks are just clipping, the FUSSION
3000 has the following current requirements:
Max. Continuous RMS
Max. Peak
Be sure the electrical service can supply
enough amperage for all the components
connected to it.
We recommend that a stiff (robust) supply
of AC power be used because the amplifiers
place high current demands on the AC line.
The more power that is available on the line,
the louder the speakers will play and the more
peak output power will be available for
cleaner, punchier bass. A suspected problem
of "poor bass performance" is often caused by
a weak AC supply to the amplifiers.
Never remove the ground pin on the power cord
of the FUSSION 3000 or any other component.
This is very dangerous.
