IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

FIG 1 RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK

  • To reduce risk of electric shock, never open the unit. There are no user serviceable parts. Refer service to an authorized Rockville service center.
  • Do not expose this unit to any kind of moisture.
  • Please ensure that the unit is situated in a properly ventilated area.
  • Make sure the unit is placed on a level and stable surface.

Setting Up Your Power Gig Professional Sound System

Your Power Gig is set up to produce the full spectrum of sound from its woofer and tweeter horn combination. The lower frequencies seek out the floor of the room that they are playing in and travel along the floor and walls. The tweeter horn is more directional. Hence when setting up your system its more important to make sure that the tweeter horns are not blocked by any furniture and are located/aimed at ear level to the listening audience. Woofer aiming is not as critical as explained previously due to the nature of the woofer sounds, allowing them to travel through various paths even when blocked.

It is therefore recommended that when setting up your system you set up your speakers on provided stands so that the tweeter sounds will radiate above the listening crowd. This will guarantee optimum sound dispersion and achieve clear vocal sound reproduction.

FIG 2 Setting Up Your Sound System

 

How To Avoid Irritating Feedback

The placement of your microphone is critical in avoiding feedback through your Power Gig system. Never set up your microphone in front of the speaker. Always set up your microphone behind the speaker. When approaching the speaker to make any adjustments, we recommend approaching the speaker from the rear and not walking directly towards the front of the speaker.

FIG 3 How To Avoid Irritating Feedback

 

Assembling Your Power Gig Professional Sound System Stands

  1. Remove the stands from their packaging.
  2. Loosen up the adjustment knob (fig. a) and spread the legs to the desired width (fig. b). We recommend spreading the legs to the point that the support bars are parallel with the floor. Retighten the leg adjustment knob so that the legs are securely positioned (fig. c). Do not overtighten.

FIG 4 Assembling Your Sound System

3. Loosen the stand extension by loosening the locking knob (fig. d). Lift the extension to the desired height (fig. e). Now insert the safety detent pin (fig. f). Make sure the pin goes all the way through the extension pole (fig. g). If you retighten the locking knob, do not overtighten it.

FIG 6 Assembling Your Sound System

 

Mounting the Speaker

  1. Unpack the speakers from their packaging.
  2. Carefully lift the speaker above the stand, lining up the extension pole with the mounting hole at the bottom of the speaker (fig. h). This step may require a second person for assistance.
  3. Once the speaker is mounted on the stand, secure it by tightening the locking knob located behind the pole opening at the bottom the speaker (fig. i).

FIG 7 Mounting the Speaker

 

Connecting the Passive Speaker

To connect the passive speaker to the active unit, use the included ¼” to ¼” cable. Connect one end of the cable to the ¼” port on the active unit marked Speaker Out (fig. j). Now connect the other end to the¼” port on the passive unit marked Speaker In (fig. k). Make sure that the power to the active unit is turned off before you connect the passive unit.

FIG 8 Connecting the Passive Speaker

 

Setting Level Controls

It is best practice to set your input level controls (gains) in this manner:

  1. Unplug all inputs except for the one you wish to set the gain for. In this instance, the Line In RCA inputs.

FIG 9 Setting Level Controls

2. Set the line level input device volume (smart phone, tablet, MP3 player, etc.) to 60%.

FIG 10 Setting Level Controls

3. Set the RPG152Kv2 Master Level to 75%.

FIG 11 Setting Level Controls

4. Slowly turn up the level on the selected input (in this case, the Line/USS level). As soon as the clip indicator LED goes on or you hear any distortion – turn it down one or two notches.

FIG 12 Setting Level Controls

After you set the levels on all input devices, you can readjust the RPG152Kv2 levels as necessary.

Note IconPLEASE NOTE
Because mixers feature two volume controls (channel and master), when connecting one via the XLR line in port, the procedure is slightly different. The RPG152Kv2 Master Level should be set to 50% and the Line/USB Level control should be set to 50%. Set the mixer master volume to 50% and make the adjustments in step 4 on the mixer channel level control. If after making these adjustments the signal still isn’t strong enough, you can additionally boost the signal by turning up the Line/USB Level control.

When adjusting the Mic Level control, you must speak into the micophone and adjust the level control as needed. This is because adjustments to the mic input are a matter of mic volume in relation to the music volume and not necessarily a clipping issue.

 

APPLICATION USES

Microphone Presentations
Your Power Gig features ultra-low noise Mic input via an XLR port and ¼” TRS stereo jack.

  1. Make sure the Power switch is in the OFF position.
  2. Plug your microphone into either the XLR port or ¼” jack (never use both at once).
  3. Switch on the Power Gig unit.
  4. Refer to the “Setting Level Controls” section of this manual for instructions on how to
    properly adjust the Mic Level controls.

Always stand behind the Power Gig when making your microphone adjustments to avoid feedback distortion.

Line Input

You can use the Line In XLR input to connect a mixer or the RCA inputs to connect an additional stereo signal source such as a smart phone, tablet, MP3 player, CD player, etc.

  1. Make sure the Power switch is in the OFF position.
  2. Connect the mixer to the XLR input or line level signal source to the RCA inputs (never use both at once).
  3. Switch on the Power Gig unit.
  4. Make sure the MP3/Line Input button is set to the Line In position.
  5. Refer to the “Setting Level Controls” section of this manual for instructions on how to
    properly adjust the line input level control (gains).

Line Out Balanced Connection.
The XLR/¼” Line Outputs allow you to output the amplifier signal to a powered subwoofer,
another powered speaker, or an amp, which will, in turn, power other speakers. Simply connect the output device to the RPG152Kv2 using an XLR to XLR, XLR to ¼”TRS, or a ¼” to ¼” cable to share the signal. We recommend you use high quality cables such as Rockville’s RCXFM20E-B XLR to XLR cable, the RCXMB20-B XLR to ¼”TRS cable, or the RCTR series ¼” TRS to ¼” TRS cables. Do not use both outputs at once.

FIG 13 Line Out Balanced Connection.

 

Speaker Output Connection.

The ¼” TRS output marked Speaker Out is used to connect the active unit to the passive unit. Passive speaker impedance must always be 8 ohms.

FIG 14 Speaker Output Connection

Wireless Speaker Linking

The RPG152K v2 features True Wireless Stereo (TWS) Bluetooth linking. This means you can purchase 2 of these speakers and link them together to play in stereo wirelessly.

  1. Make sure both RPG unit’s power switches are in the ON position and that they are within 32 feet of each other.
  2. Press the Mode button on both of the units to enter Bluetooth mode. The LCD screens should show that the speakers are not connected via Bluetooth or to another speaker.
  3. Press the SCAN/TWS button on one of the units for 3 seconds (3a). If pairing is successful
    the unit’s LCD screen will read “BLUETOOTH BT-A Connected” (3b). This is the primary and all functions will be controlled by this unit.
  4. The secondary unit’s LCD screen will read “BLUETOOTH BT-B Connected”.
  5. Once the speakers are connected, go to your phone’s Bluetooth interface and select “ROCKVILLE” from the list of devices. If connection is successful, you will hear the same audio from both unit’s. You are now ready to enjoy true wireless stereo sound!
