Input Connections The RSX jack plates feature parallel speaker connectors. This enables you to directly connect an extension cabinet to an RSX speaker. Only use one ¼" or Speakon® connector as an input connector from an amplifier. Typically, you will only connect a single extension cabinet to an RSX cabinet, but it is possible to daisy- chain multiple cabinets.
Basic Set Up The RSX loudspeakers are passive cabinets, which means that they need to be connected to a power amplifier to reproduce an audio signal. Each speaker cabinet features parallel connectors which enable each cabinet to be daisy chained to an additional loudspeaker. When connecting multiple speakers to a power amplifier or powered mixer, you must pay attention to the mini- mum load impedance of the amplifier.
Using Speaker Stands The RSX110, RSX112, and RSX115 feature standard 1 ∕ " pole mount receptacles, which enable the speaker to be mounted on a standard tripod stand or subwoofer satellite pole. For best results, raise the speakers above the heads of the listening audience.
In many instances, when using the RSX speakers as a monitor system, you may choose to use an external equalizer like the Samson S-Curve 131 to tailor the sound to cut through the stage levels and to reduce the chance of feedback.
Configuring the RSX118S Subwoofer Before you start plugging in cables, you should take a minute to decide how you want to inter- face your new RSX118S subwoofer. Most system set-ups fall into one of two categories: Monoor Stereo sub operation. Mono Sub Operation In most cases, a common (mono) sub bass setup is preferable.
When configuring your sound system, you may want to use an exter- nal crossover, like the Samson S 3-way, to fine tune the crossover frequency and incorporate the subwoofer with the full-range speakers, as well as to match the room where the system is installed.
Permanent Installation The RSX series loudspeakers are a perfect solution for many fixed installations such as live sound venues, discos, schools, houses of worship, convention centers and airport terminals. The two-way speaker enclosures are extremely versatile for installation as they can be suspended in several different positions by using the twelve fly points.
Cable Wiring The RSX series speaker connections are made via the rear panel ¼" and/or Speakon® connec- tors for easy interface with industry standard cables. Standard, unshielded speaker wire (avail- able at your local pro audio or music store), with either ¼" phone or Speakon connectors and wire gauge of 12–14 AWG is recommended.
