Speakeasy v3b

Self-contained Speaker System

The Speakeasy v3b has two combo input jacks and a front master volume
control/power switch. Its drivers are magnetically shielded, allowing
operation near sensitive equipment.


The Speakeasy v3b will operate on two 9V batteries, typically for a full
day of intermittent use. It will also operate from an external 9 - 18VDC
power source on its coaxial power connector (2.1 x 5.5mm, center pin
positive). The internal battery is switched out of circuit when plugging in
external power so there is no need to remove the battery when using
external power.

Line Level Input

The line level input is for balanced signals of +4dB, though unbalanced
signals may be used. With a proper strength signal, the Speakeasy
v3b's maximum loudness before clipping is achieved with the volume
control at the "12 O’clock" position. An XLR / 1/4" TRS combo jack is
provided for convenience, and is wired in the standard balanced
configuration of Pin 1/Sleeve = Ground, Pin 2/Tip: Audio Hot (+), Pin
3/Ring: Audio Cold (-).

Microphone Level Input

The XLR mic level input will accept a balanced mic level signal, and will
directly accommodate a dynamic microphone. Powering for condenser
mics is not available. The microphone input has 40dB of gain available,
accessible on the rear panel with a small flat-bladed screwdriver.

Instrument Level Input

The Speakeasy v3b will accommodate an unbalanced instrument-level signal on a 1/4" TS connector. The impedance of
this input is 1Mohm, which is suitable for use with passive electric guitar pickups or active guitar preamp systems without
"loading down" the pickups and causing high frequency roll-off. Instruments with very hot outputs, such as electric guitars
with overwound humbucker pickups, may cause distortion. In that case, the guitar's volume control should be adjusted to
minimize distortion.

All audio inputs are isolated from each other and therefore may be used at the same time. For example, a line level input can
be used for music playback while the mic input is used for cueing.
