INSTRUCTION MANUAL BUILT FROM THE SOUND UP” 














The Fender® 110XP, 112XP, and 115XP two-way, 
professional quality loudspeaker systems are 
designed to form the basis of everything from a 
public address system permanently installed, to 
the nightly rigors of a working band’s portable 
sound system. Add ultra-deep bass to the your XP 
Series Loudspeaker System with a Fender 115sA 
or 118sA Subwoofer Loudspeaker System. 


Features of XP Artist Series Loudspeakers: 
e Great fidelity using a trapezoidal cabinet design 





e Moisture sealed 5/8” particle board cabinet 
e Pole-mount sockets 


e Two high-current, 1/4” phone jacks to enable 
“daisy-chain” cabinet linking 


e Dual piezoelectric compression drivers 
e Silver grill cloth 

e Metal corner protectors and glide feet 
e Genuine Tolex® cabinet covering 


¢ Compact and portable 





Each XP Series Loudspeaker cabinet 
is equipped with two 1/4" jacks. 
These standard phone jacks are wired 
in parallel, allowing either one to be 





used as the input; the other jack can XP 
Series 


then be used as output to an addition- 
al speaker cabinet in a "daisy-chain"

the XP system “daisy-chained” with 
Fender 115sA or 118sA Sub-woofers. 








“DAISY-CHAIN” 





Avoid damage to your equipment by 
ensuring that the total speaker 
impedance load is within the limits set 
by the amplifiers manufacturer. 
XP Series Speakers have = an 
impedance of 8Q. Listed below are the combined 
impedance loads of the XP Series loudspeaker 
connected in parallel with speakers of 4Q, 8Q and 
16Q ratings: 


e XP Series 8Q + any 4Q speaker = 2.6Q load total 


e XP Series 8Q + any 8Q speaker = 4 load total 
e XP Series 8Q + any 16Q speaker = 5.3Q load total

e CAUTION: Speakers produce magnetic fields 
which may interfere with the operation of near- 
by electronic devices such as televisions and 
computers. Increase the distance between 
speakers and electronic devices to reduce inter- 
ference. 


e WARNING: Fender loudspeaker systems are 
capable of producing very high sound pressure 
levels which may cause temporary or perma- 
nent hearing damage. Use care when setting 
and adjusting volume levels during use.. 


e No user serviceable part inside, refer servicing 
to qualified personnel only. 








Using the recommend- 
ed speaker impedance 
load ensures optimum 
efficiency and_ signal 
XP response. The _ total 
Series : 
impedance load of a 
“daisy-chain” scheme 
can be adjusted by 
using speakers of differ- 
ent impedances. One of 
the results of mixing 
speaker impedances 
though, is that any 
speakers with lower 
impedance ratings will 
have a higher power 
consumption and output. For example, the power 
use/output of a 2Q speaker will be twice that of a 
4Q speaker and 4 times that of a 8Q speaker. 
Consider this when positioning speakers linked ina 
“daisy-chain.”

There are several things to 
consider when placing loud- 
speaker cabinets. First 
determine the _ horizontal 
coverage requirements for 
the room. When used in a 
typical auditorium setting, 
position the speakers as 
shown in Fig. B. Ensure 
adequate sound levels reach 
each seat in the audience by 
walking through the entire 
auditorium—listen for any 
gaps in coverage then reposition speakers as nec- 
essary. Recheck sound coverage with a full audi- 
ence in attendance, if possible. 


The XP Series horn has a horizontal coverage 
angle of 70° and a vertical coverage of 35°; bass 


Acoustics and Gabinet Placement 








Other considera- 
tions include 
bass frequency 
performance and 
feedback... 
When a XP 
speaker is placed 
near a wall, there 
will a  low-fre- 
quency boost of 
up to 3dB. The 
drawback is that 
close proximity to 
a wall may also cause feedback. 


Audience 


To avoid feedback: Increase the distance 
between speakers and the feedback source 
whether it is a wall, a microphone, or a guitar. Use 
cardioid—pattern microphones to help block feed- 





speakers are nearly 
omnidirectional. 
When setting up 
your XP Series 
enclosures as a 
“single unit,” aim 
the cabinets 70° 
apart as shown in 
FIG. C, for 140° 
of horizontal cov- 
erage. 






FIG. C 





Power and audio signal cables are a 
common sources of sound system fail- 
ure. Quality cables, carefully maintained, 
are essential to the reliability of the entire 
sound system. Long cable connections 
or cables supplying multiple speaker 
cabinets must be of a sufficient gauge to 
transfer all of the available amplifier 
power to the speakers. As a rule, thick- 
er cables (lower gauge numbers) are 
more efficient because they absorb less 
power themselves.

back. Always keep microphones 
pointed away from speakers. 


Sound quality is often compro- 
mised when a sound system is 
required to be hidden from 
sight. Remember that the 
location of your loudspeaker 
cabinets will affect sound qual- 
ity and coverage area more than 
any other factor. 





Prevent power loss and the degradation of signal quality by 
using the recommended cable gauges below. 


Cable that suppplys one cabinet, such as the cable to the last 
cabinet in a “daisy-chain”: 

e Up to 50-feet requires 18-gauge cable 

e Up to 100-feet requires 16-gauge cable 


Cable that suppplys two cabinets, such as the cable from the 
amp to the first cabinet in a “daisy-chain”: 

e Up to 25-feet requires 18-gauge cable 

e Up to 50-feet requires 16-gauge cable 

e Up to 100-feet requires 14-gauge cable
