Our PWS series PA Speakers are an ideal way to plug and play music from your iPod or other MP3 device. This is a great way to share your favorite playlists with your friends at a party, bar-b-que, or any other gathering of people! There are a few different ways to connect these devices to one another.
They are as follows:
Option 1 – This one is the best solution in our opinion. You should have access to or purchase a mixer with Left and Right, XLR out connections. These can usually be found for a very reasonable price. Hook the iPod or MP3 to the CD in connections via a 1/8″ to RCA stereo cable. Then, wiring the PWS speakers, one to the left output and the other to the right using standard mic cables. This configuration should provide the best possible sound. This is due to the fact the mixer takes into consideration all of the pertinent technical aspects of such an arrangement, to provide a good sound with a mix of audio classed products.
Option 2 – The second solution would be to connect the iPod or MP3 output with a 1/8″ to 1/4″ TS cable. Next, connect the 1/4″ TS cable to each of your PWS speakers.
Option 3 – If you have only a single PWS speaker, the connection is very simple. You can simply connect the iPod or MP3 output with a 1/8″ cable to the 1/8″ input on the PWS speaker! Viola! Instantly, your favorite tracks are playing out of the speaker!
In order to connect your PWS speakers to one or more additional units, the XLR input must be utilized in order for the output XLR to be active.
