Thank you for selecting this YAMAHA product.
Read this before using the speaker.
• To assure the finest performance, please read this manual
carefully. Keep it in a safe place for future reference.
• Install the speaker in a cool, dry, clean place - away from
windows, heat sources, sources of excessive vibration, dust,
moisture and cold. Avoid sources of electrical noise
(transformers, motors). To prevent fire or electrical shock, do
not expose this unit to rain or water.
• To prevent the enclosure from warping or discoloring, do not
place the speaker where it will be exposed to direct sunlight or
excessive humidity.
• Do not place the following objects on the speaker:
Glass, china, small metallic etc.
If glass, etc., falls as a result of vibration and breaks, it may
cause personal injury.
A burning candle, etc.
If the candle falls as a result of vibrations, it may cause fire
and personal injury.
A vessel with water in it
If the vessel falls as a result of vibrations and water spills, it
may cause damage to the speaker, and/or you may get an
electric shock.
• Do not place the speaker where foreign material such as
dripping water. It might cause fire, damage to this unit, and/or
personal injury.
• Do not place the speaker where it is liable to be knocked over
or struck by falling objects. Stable placement will also ensure
better sound performance.
• Placing the speaker on the same shelf or rack as the turntable
can result in acoustical feedback.
• Never put a hand or a foreign object into the port located on the
rear of the speaker, as this might cause personal injury and/or
damage to the speaker.
• When moving the speaker, do not hold the port, as it might
cause personal injury and/or damage to the speaker.
• Any time you notice distortion, reduce the volume control on
your amplifier. Never allow your amplifier to be driven into
“clipping.” Otherwise the speaker may be damaged.
• When using an amplifier with a rated output power higher than
the nominal input power of the speaker, care should be taken
never to exceed the speaker’s maximum input.
• Do not attempt to clean the speaker with chemical solvents, as
this might damage the finish. Use a clean, dry cloth.
• Do not attempt to modify or repair the speaker. Contact
qualified YAMAHA service personnel when any service is
needed. The cabinet should never be opened for any reasons.
• Secure placement and installation is the owner’s
responsibility. YAMAHA shall not be liable for any
accident caused by improper placement or installation of

The speaker is constructed with the majority of the weight located
in its upper portion, and is thus susceptible to falling over if proper
care is not taken to insure its stability. If the speaker falls over, it
may damage the speaker or be the cause of injury (or even death)
to person and/or damage to personal property.
For safe and proper use of the speaker:
• Position the speaker in a location that is solid, level, smooth,
and low (with respect to the floor).
• Do not push or apply pressure to the side of the speaker when
moving, or lean objects against the side of the speaker.
• Do not sit on or set objects on top of the speaker.
Vibrations or jolts associated with earthquakes and other phenomena or
activities may cause the speaker to fall over. For safety reasons, using
commercially available products that increase stability of the speaker is
recommended (metal fittings or chains, etc.).
Use the stands included with the speaker to increase stability:
Be sure to use the stands regardless of where the speaker is
positioned. Attaching the stands included with the speaker
reinforces the base of the speaker so as not to fall over.
Please be cautioned that even though the stands are connected, this
does not guarantee that the speaker will not fall over.

• The provided stands are in two types. Two stands are for the
right side and others are for the left side. Attach each stand
to the proper position on the bottom of the speaker by
following the figure below.
• To attach the stands to the speaker, be sure to lay down the
speaker with the side facing up.
Be carefully not to apply force to the side of the speaker,
otherwise the speaker may fall causing damage to the speaker
or personal injury.

■Using as 2ch stereo speakers
Better stereo images will be obtained when the speakers are
slightly angled in towards the listeners.
This speaker system is capable of standard connections and biwire connection. Before making connections, make sure that
the amplifier is switched off.

■Using as front speakers in a multi channel
Position the speakers on both sides of the TV. The positioning of
speakers is important, since this dictates the overall sound quality
of the multi channel system. Set up the speakers on the basis of
your listening position by following the owner’s manual supplied
with your amplifier.

• Placing this unit too close to a CRT TV set might impair
picture color or create a buzzing noise. Should this happen,
move the speaker away (more than 20 cm (7-7/8”)) from the
TV set.
• To avoid accidents resulting from tripping over loose
speaker cables, fix them to the floor.

• Connect the screw-type input terminals at the rear of the
speakers to the speaker output terminals of the amplifier (or
receiver) with the speaker cable.
• Connect the (+) terminals on the amplifier (or receiver) to the
(+) terminal of each speaker, making sure to confirm the colorcoded wire of the cable at each end. Use the other wire of the
cable to connect the (–) terminals of the components.
• Connect one speaker to the left (marked L) terminals of your
amplifier, and another speaker to the right (marked R)
terminals, making sure not to reverse the polarity (+, –). If one
speaker is connected with reversed polarity the sound will be
unnatural and lack bass.
■How to connect
■About Bi-Wire Connection
This speaker system is capable of bi-wire connection. To connect
the speaker to the output terminals of the amplifier (or receiver),
two pairs of cables for each of mid-range/woofer and tweeter used
instead of standard connections.
Loosen the knob.
Remove 10 mm (3/8”) of insulation from each end of the
cables, and twist the exposed conductors together neatly and
tightly, as shown below.
This type of connection decreases the modulation distortion
caused by electric resistance of the cables and driving current of
the speakers.
10 mm
(3/8 ”)
Consequently, purer sound quality can be expected.
To utilize bi-wire connection, remove the short bars from the
terminals first, and then connect the mid-range/woofer and tweeter
to the amplifier separately using two pairs of cables.

Insert the bare wire.
Tighten the knob and secure the cables.
Test the firmness of the connection by pulling lightly on the
cables at the terminal.
