PRECAUTIONS
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE PROCEEDING
* Please keep this manual in a safe place for future reference.
WARNING
Always follow the basic precautions listed below to avoid the possibility of serious injury or even death from electrical shock,
short-circuiting, damages, fire or other hazards. These precautions include, but are not limited to, the following:
Do not open
• Do not open the device or attempt to disassemble the internal
parts or modify them in any way. The device contains no userserviceable parts. If it should appear to be malfunctioning, discontinue use immediately and have it inspected by qualified
Yamaha service personnel.
Water warning
• Do not expose the device to rain, use it near water or in damp
or wet conditions, or place containers on it containing liquids
which might spill into any openings.
CAUTION
Always follow the basic precautions listed below to avoid the possibility of physical injury to you or others, or damage to the
device or other property. These precautions include, but are not limited to, the following:
Location
Connections
• If you use a stand, check the stand’s specifications and make
sure that it is sturdy enough to support the weight of the
speaker. You may need to limit the number of people around
the placed stand, in order to avoid toppling the device or causing damage to the internal components.
• Before connecting the device to other devices, turn off the
power for all devices. Before turning the power on or off for all
devices, set all volume levels to minimum.
• If you use the TS-80 and TS-90 speaker stands manufactured
by Ultimate Systems (sold separately) to support the AX10/
AX12/AX15/AX12M/AX15M speaker models, be sure to keep
the following cautions.
– Use the speaker stands with their legs fully opened.
– Place only one speaker on each speaker stand.
– Tighten fastening screws securely.
– Remove the speakers from the stands before moving the
stands or adjusting their height.
– Add weight such as sand bags around the stand legs to prevent them from falling over.
– Use the stand at a maximum height of 140 cm.
• Be sure to observe the amplifier’s rated load impedance (see
page 5), particularly when connecting speakers in parallel.
Connecting an impedance load outside the amplifier’s rated
range can damage the amplifier.
• Use only speaker cables for connecting speakers to the
speaker jacks. Use of other types of cables may result in fire.
Handling caution
• Always turn AC power to the power amplifier on last in any
audio system to avoid speaker damage. When turning power
off, the power amplifier should be turned off first for the same
reason.
• If you use a metal socket of the AX15W subwoofer to allow
mounting of a satellite speaker, use a pole shorter than 90cm
with an outer diameter of 35mm.
• When transporting or moving the device, always use two or
more people.
• Before moving the device, remove all connected cables.
• Do not expose the device to excessive dust or vibrations, or
extreme cold or heat (such as in direct sunlight, near a heater)
to prevent the possibility of panel disfiguration or damage to
the internal components.
• Do not place the device in an unstable position where it might
accidentally fall over.

This product, when used in combination with
amplification and/or additional loudspeakers,
may be capable of producing sound levels that
could cause permanent hearing loss.
DO NOT operate at high volume levels or at a
level that is uncomfortable. If you experience
any discomfort or ringing in the ears, or suspect
an hearing loss, you should consult an audiologist.
To protect your speakers
When choosing a power amplifier to use with your speakers,
make sure that its power output matches the speakers’ power
capacity (refer to the Specifications on page 5). Even if the
amplifier’s power output is lower than the speakers’ PGM (program) power capacity, the speakers may be damaged when clipping of a high input signal occurs.
The following may cause damage to speakers:
• Feedback caused when using a microphone.
• Continuous high sound pressure level produced by electronic
instruments.
• Continuous high-power output distorted signals.
• Popping noises caused by turning on equipment, or by connecting or disconnecting system components while the amplifier is turned on.
Poly Switch
All full-range loudspeakers are fitted with a self-resetting poly
switch that protects the high-frequency driver from damage
caused by excessive power.
If a loudspeaker cabinet loses high-frequency output, immediately remove power from the unit and wait for two to three minutes. They should allow the poly switch to reset. Re-apply power
and check the performance of the high-frequency driver before
continuing with the power reduced to a level that does not cause
the poly switch to interrupt the signal.
• In any system using two or more speakers, be sure to match the
connection polarities of all speakers to the amplifier(s) – e.g.
always connect “+” to “+” and “-” to “-”. If the polarities are not
properly matched the speakers will be driven out of phase and the
sound will suffer.
• Use only Neutrik NL4FC plugs for connecting Speakon connectors.
Yamaha cannot be held responsible for damage caused by
improper use or modifications to the device.

and may not match the actual appearance of the product during
operation.

Before Making Connections
■ Phone Plug Wiring
Phone plugs for connection to the phone jack inputs should be wired as
shown to the right. Be sure to use proper speaker cable — NOT shielded
instrument or line cable — for all speaker connections.
■ Neutrik NL4FC Plug Wiring
If you will be using the Neutrik connectors for speaker input,
wire the plugs as shown to the right. Be sure to use proper
speaker cable — NOT shielded instrument or line cable — for all
speaker connections.

Neutrik NL4FC connector
4
The subwoofer AX15W features four input/parallel connectors—two 1/4” phone jacks and two Neutrik NL4MP
connectors. Use either a phone jack or a Neutrik connector to receive input from your sound system/power amplifier. One of the spare connectors can be used to parallel-connect an additional main speaker (keeping in mind the
impedance considerations mentioned below).
■ Impedance Considerations
When connecting speakers in parallel be sure to check the rated load impedance of the power amplifier. Most power
amplifiers are capable of safely driving speakers with minimum impedance of 8 ohms or 4 ohms. A pair of parallelconnected 8-ohm speakers have a total impedance of 4 ohms. The AX10/AX12/AX15/AX12M/AX15M are 8-ohm
speakers, and two of these can safely be paralleled on one output. Two or more speakers can be connected in parallel, however, if you are using a power amplifier that can safely drive load impedances of 4 ohms or lower.
