Drawmer have gone to great lengths to make the Speaker Protector tamper-proof by incorporating the locking mechanism on the front. However, if the rear of the unit, along with the power amplifier, were reconnected, by an engineer/dj trying to gain more level, then the protection system would effectively be bypassed. For this reason Drawmer have designed the Speaker Protector Tamper-proof Bracket - trapping the XLR’s in place and making it extremely difficult to disconnect them without removing the bracket. This bracket could be specified in order to conform to Local Authority noise abatement regulations.
Installation of the Tamper-proof bracket could not be simpler:
After setting up the SP2120 Speaker Protector as described in the manual, with the XLR’s in place, simply slide the Tamper-proof Bracket over the rear of the unit, making sure that the protruding cables locate through the gaps on the bracket. Next, screw in to place at the four locating points (arrowed) using the M3 screws provided.
Further protection can be gained by fitting M3 TORX tamperproof screws, to a maximum length of 6mm, though a specialist screwdriver will also be required.In addition, for extra protection, both the SP2120 and the power amp should be locked in a rack, where access to the rear is very difficult.
You should note that the Tamper-proof bracket is only available for SP2120’s who’s serial number is 0845 or higher (September 2006). On older versions the bracket could be retro- fitted, though this would invalidate any warranty that Drawmer has provided for the SP2120.
