9 Voice Selector Connection The Voice Selector switch box is connected to the Voice jack of the speaker via any standard 3.5 mm stereo phone cable. The included way splitter can be used to control the Voice Emulation of up to 5 speakers. However, the input impedance of the Voice jack is very high. So, additional splitters can be daisy chained in order to control virtually any number of speakers. Caveat Plugging the speaker into different mains outlets can potentially cause erratic behavior in the Voice control. The safety grounds of different outlets can sometimes have ground potential differences of a few volts of more. The resulting voltage spread between the grounded chassis of various speakers can cause the Voice control inputs to read incorrect settings or become unstable. Care must betaken with the studio mains power and safety ground layout. If this is a concern, please consult a qualified electrician. Example: 5 channel Voice Emulation control layout. Cabinet vibrations area significant source of distortion and coloration inmost loudspeakers. The primary mechanism that generates cabinet vibrations is simple Newtonian action and reaction. As the driver motor magnet and voice coil) forces the cone to move back and forth in order to generate sound, the cone exerts an equal and opposite force on the motor. This force is transmitted through the driver frame to the cabinet, vibrating the cabinet walls and coloring the sound emitted by the cone. This effect is most especially prevalent in the low frequency drivers where the cone motion is greatest. While, the MiniMain12 is built with a massive and well braced cabinet, we also tackle the problem at its source by eliminating vibrations before they even begin. This is achieved through our innovative force cancellation design. The low frequency drivers are mounted on opposing sides of the cabinet and their motors are locked together. As the cones are driven in and out in opposite directions the forces exerted on the motors cancel one another. The vibrations never make it to the cabinet because they are not allowed to develop in the first place. This layout has further benefits. Since the drivers are locked together, the motors and frames function as a massive internal metal cabinet bracing. And because the wavelengths generated by the subwoofers are much larger than the speaker cabinet dimensions, the subs radiate as if they were a single point source located on axis with the tweeter.
