Turn the INPUT 1, 2, and 3 (If there is a third) controls fully counter-clockwise.
Set the MIC/LINE switch:
If a microphone will be connected directly, set the MIC/LINE switch to the MIC position (depressed).
If a mixer, CD player, cassette tape, or electronic musical instrument (the “source”) will be connected directly, set the MIC/LINE switch to the LINE position (disengaged).

Plug the power cable into a properly grounded 3-wire AC power outlet
Plug the XLR cable from the mixer or microphone into the INPUT connector.
Connect other sources (if used) to the other LINE input connectors
The main power switch is located on the input panel on the back of the speaker enclosure. Always ensure that the speaker system is the last thing you power-up, and the first thing to turn off when operating your complete PA system. If speaker systems are daisy chained (linked) together always turn off the last system in the chain first. Power “on” is indicated by the illumination of the light / logo on the front of the enclosure and the power “on” LED on the back.
• First, switch on the power to the mixer, audio sources, or musical instruments that are feeding your speakers. • Next, turn on the power switch.

CHECK THE LIMIT LED LIGHT
The LIMIT indicator flashes when the loudspeaker’s amplifiers / Power amplifier / mixers levels are approaching maximum output. Occasional flashes are normal for very loud operation.
