When LA108/LA112 loudspeakers are used in a temporary application, where rain or exposure to moisture is a possibility, the TWS-IO (Temporary Weather Shield) is recommended, which protects the unit‘s In/Out connectors. For the LS118 subwoofer, used in the same conditions, a different accessory is available and recommended, the TWS-AMP (Temporary Weather Shield), which protects the entire subwoofer’s amplifier module.

Be sure to read and understand the instructions that come with the TWS-IO and TWS-AMP accessories. In any circumstances, do not allow water to enter the amplifier module or the loudspeaker/subwoofer enclosure.

In fixed installations, the L Class models are not designed or intended for permanent or long-term deployment where they are exposed to the elements. Longer-term exposure to extreme humidity, salt-spray and water can result in cosmetic damage or compromised functionality and safety.
