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 then be used as output to an addition- al speaker cabinet in a "daisy-chain" connection scheme. Fig. A illustrates the XP system daisy-chained with Fender 115sA or 118sA Sub-woofers.
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 8. Listed below are the combined impedance loads of the XP Series loudspeaker connected in parallel with speakers of 4, 8 and 16 ratings:
XP Series 8 + any 4 speaker = 2.6 load total XP Series 8 + any 8 speaker = 4 load total XP Series 8 + any 16 speaker = 5.3 load total
Using the recommend- ed speaker impedance load ensures optimum efficiency and signal response. The total 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 2 speaker will be twice that of a 4 speaker and 4 times that of a 8 speaker. Consider this when positioning speakers linked in a daisy-chain.

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 bands sound system.
Features of XP Artist Series Loudspeakers:
Great fidelity using a trapezoidal cabinet design
Heavy-duty, quality wood cabinet construction
Two high-current, 1/4 phone jacks to enable daisy-chain cabinet linking
Dual ceramic HF compression drivers
Classic Fender silver grill cloth
Metal corner protectors and glide feet
Black Vinyl cabinet covering
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.
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..
No user serviceable part inside, refer servicing to qualified personnel only.

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 auditoriumlisten 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 speakers are nearly omnid i rect iona l . 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.
Other considera- tions include bass frequency performance and f e e d b a c k . . . 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.
To avoid feedback: Increase the distance between speakers and the feedback source whether it is a wall, a microphone, or a guitar. Use cardioidpattern microphones to help block feed-
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.
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.
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:
Up to 50-feet requires 18-gauge cable 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:
Up to 25-feet requires 18-gauge cable Up to 50-feet requires 16-gauge cable Up to 100-feet requires 14-gauge cable
