Studiophile AV 30 Features
3
1.
Woofer
The woofer unit is 3" in diameter and is
magnetically shielded to protect your
computer video monitor from interference. It
includes a high-temperature voice coil and 3"
polypropylene treated paper cone. The woofer
delivers balanced mid- and low-frequency
response.
2.
Tweeter
By employing a specially developed 3/4"
treated silk dome with protective magnetic
shielding, the tweeter can deliver an extremely
natural response. It minimizes resonance by
adapting a unique internal damping technology.
3.
Bass Reflex Port
The hole in the rear panel is a bass reflex port.
It is designed to discharge very low frequency
signals and enhance the overall bass response.
4.
Bass-Boost Control
The back panel Bass-Boost control on the
Studiophile AV 30 gives you additional
low‑frequency gain and makes the monitors
versatile for different spaces and listening
preferences.
5.
Enclosure
Along with the other components, the
Studiophile AV 30's enclosure plays an
important role. In order to provide more stable
performance, we used a special mediumdensity fiberboard (MDF) and unique interior
reinforcement designed to absorb vibration and
impact generated under extreme conditions.
Additionally, our innovative speaker monitor
cabinet includes carefully placed acoustic
material that makes the Studiophile AV 30
sound much bigger than it is—resulting in a
smooth, natural bass response.
The power amplifiers and crossover network, for
the Studiophile AV 30 are specially designed for
this woofer and tweeter. The network distributes
low-, mid-, and high-frequency audio signals
to the proper components in order to minimize
distortion and to achieve a balanced sound.
Installation
4
For optimal performance of the Studiophile AV 30, please read the following directions carefully
before installation.
Precautions
Connections: Your Studiophile AV 30 monitors have a variety of inputs for use with a multitude
of devices. Soundcards or other devices with RCA line outputs (e.g., M-Audio Delta Audiophile
24/96) can be connected to the RCA inputs on your left speaker’s back panel. If your soundcard or
portable music player has an 1/8” output, you can connect it to the front panel aux input, using the
provided 1/8” to 1/8” cable.
Correct Power Operation: Since the Studiophile AV 30 contains amplifiers, it must be connected
to a power outlet using the detachable AC cable that is provided. Before connecting power, please
make sure that the On/Off switch on the back of the Studiophile AV 30 is set to the off position.
WARNING! - Use of improper voltage may result in hazardous conditions and/or damage to
speaker components not covered by speaker warranty. Please make sure the voltage is set
appropriately by checking the the position of the red "AC Select" switch on the back before
powering on your speakers.

For maximum flexibility, we have included a
stereo “Aux” input which allows you to plug in a
secondary audio source (such as your portable
music player) in addition to the main RCA inputs
in the back. The volume control works on all
inputs simultaneously. Additionally, there is
a stereo headphone output next to the “Aux”
jack that mutes the sound coming out of the
speakers and redirects it to your headphones.

Setting the “Bass Boost”
EQ Switch 3
This 2-position switch provides a subtle
increase in bass response. The On mode
increases the low‑frequency gain slightly via
the woofer and bass-reflex port. The Off mode
produces a natural, even response for most
listening conditions.
