Philosophy &
Introduction
Blue Sky is a philosophy. We design each product to represent the highest
ratio possible of performance to cost, providing the highest value added to
our customers.
We will continually seek out opportunities to utilize the talent of the Blue Sky
team to realize this philosophy. Our customer’s value requirements will always
be our prime focus, and only those products that achieve our performance
value ratio will earn the right to carry the Blue Sky logo.
To that end we are proud to introduce ProDesk™, the first truly full-range
monitoring system specifically designed for critical mixing and monitoring on
the desktop. ProDesk™ brings the desktop user the same spectral performance
as Sky System One, with the only compromise being less output than its bigger
brother. ProDesk™ uses the same revolutionary design technologies that were
used in Sky System One. Ultra low distortion, proprietary woofers, superlative
Danish tweeters and highly optimized amplifiers specifically designed for this
application. ProDesk™ is the logical evolution of Blue Sky’s 2.1- integrated 3way system concept and when used with Blue Sky’s new BMC, can also offer
an extremely high performance 5.1 solution for desktop applications.
Thank you for choosing Blue Sky

Important notes about
ProDesk™ and this
Owner’s Manual
SAT 5 High Pass Filter Switch –
The SAT 5 includes a user selectable High Pass filter network. This filter network
can be switched “IN” or “OUT” of circuit. When the SAT 5 is used in a 2.1
system configuration, with the SUB 8, this switch must be in the “IN” position.
If the SAT 5 is used with the SUB 12 or the Blue Sky BMC, this switch must be
in the “OUT” position. This is because the SUB 8, which is part of ProDesk™
does not include the High Pass Filter networks, which are included as part of
the SUB 12 and the Blue Sky BMC.
SUB 8 Left and Right Channel Outputs –
The SUB 8 is not compatible with the Blue Sky SAT 6.5. This is because the SUB
8 does not include the requisite 80Hz High Pass filter networks for the Left and
Right channel outputs. These High Pass filters are included in the SAT 5 and
therefore the lack of filters in the SUB 8 does not represent a problem when
the SUB 8 and SAT 5 are used together.
Applications addressed in this manual –
This manual is for 2.1 system setup only. If you are using the ProDesk system in
a 5.1 channel setup please follow the directions and instruction provided with
the Blue Sky Bass-Management Controller. For more information on the BMC,
please visit www.abluesky.com

Quick Setup
1.
Carefully remove the SAT 5 Active Satellite and the SUB 8 Active
Subwoofer from their respective packaging. Please make sure to
retain all packaging materials for future shipping requirements.
2.
The SAT 5 and SUB 8 leave the Blue Sky factory fully calibrated.
With the gain controls set to the reference mark (which is at 12
o’clock on the gain control) on the subwoofer and monitor
speakers, a 200mV -7dBu pink noise signal, with a bandwidth
of 500 to 2kHz, will yield 90dB SPL at 1 meter for the satellite.
Because most small monitoring rooms have some gain at low
frequency a good starting point for the subwoofer level is -3dB
from the reference position.
3.
The SAT 5 and SUB 8 use XLR connectors. You will need a total
of four (4) XLR cables for a stereo monitoring configuration (not
supplied).
4.
The first step in the installation process is to position the active
subwoofer. Although you have great flexibility in where the
active subwoofer is positioned, a good starting point is centered
between the left and right satellite speakers. This could be under
the console, behind the console, etc.
5.
Once the subwoofer is in position; connect two XLR cables from
the left and right monitor outputs on the mixing console or digital
workstation to the Left and Right inputs on the subwoofer. Then
connect the remaining two XLR cables to the left and right satellite
outputs of the subwoofer. You will connect these cables at the
end of Step 6. Finally, Plug in the power cord to the IEC connector
on the subwoofer.
6.
7.
Next, place the SAT 5 Active Satellite Speakers into position.
The recommended position for the monitors is based on ITU
standards and sets the speakers at 60 degrees from the listener,
forming an equilateral triangle (a triangle with equal sides). See
Figure 1. Fortunately, this setup eliminates most of the math and
is easily simplified to the following guidelines: If you want to sit
1 meter (39.37 inches) from the speakers, place the speakers 1
meter apart. If you want to sit 6 ft from the speakers, place the
speakers 6 ft apart. Etc. The active monitors can be positioned
on the console, on stands, etc. Ideally the SAT 5 active monitors
should be at seated ear height. If this is not possible, tilting
the cabinet at the listening area can improve high-frequency
coverage.
Once the left and right speakers are in position, plug the two XLR
cables from the subwoofers’ Left and Right outputs into each
of the SAT 5 inputs, and then plug the power cord into the IEC
connector on the SAT 5. Confirm the system is wired as shown in
System Signal Connection Diagram on - page 6.
IMPORTANT! Confirm that the High-Pass filter switch is on the “IN”
circuit position. This switch will turn on the 80Hz High-Pass filter
that is required when using the SAT 5 in a 2.1 system with the
SUB 8. This switch should be in the “OUT” position only when the
SAT 5 is used with the SUB 12 or in a 5.1 system when being used
with the BMC. Visit www.abluesky.com for more information on
the BMC and SUB 12.
8.
At this point the Blue Sky monitoring system is correctly
configured, and ready for the final step in the installation. Prior to
plugging the system into the wall, and powering up the system,
do a quick check of all connections.
9.
If everything is correct, plug in all power cords. Do not turn
on the power switches, yet! Some mixers and out-board
equipment such as D-to-A converters and equalizers generate
loud rail-to-rail pops when they initially turn-on. Depending
on the level and the gain settings of the monitors, these pops
could damage the tweeters in the SAT 5 monitors. To avoid this,
always turn on equipment in the following sequence: Mixer 1st,
subwoofer 2nd, and satellite speakers last.
10.
At this point the Blue Sky monitoring system is fully operational,
and ready for use. Begin by playing familiar pieces of music,
which can assist you in the fine-tuning and exact positioning of
both the active monitors and active subwoofer. It is important to
remember that the positioning of the subwoofer in the room will
impact the subwoofer level. You may find it necessary to increase
or decrease the level from the reference position. This is OK, and
is anticipated.
11.
If a more exacting setup is required, a pink noise generator, used
in conjunction with a real time analyzer can be used to fully
optimize the system (See Page 10 - Expanded Setup Guide).
12.
Just remember - Use your ears, they are the best audio tool you
have and you will be amazed how accurate the setup can be if
you use familiar audio material during the setup of the system.

Expanded Setup Guide
After completing the setup as specified in the Quick Setup (Page 5), a
more accurate setup can be performed using a Sound Pressure Level
meter (SPL meter), 1/3 Octave Real Time Analyzer (RTA) and a pink noise
generator. This setup guide should be used for 2 Channel systems with
one or more subwoofers. If you need information regarding setting up a 5.1
channel system, please consult the manual that comes with the Blue Sky Bass
Management Controller.
1.
Confirm that the satellite and subwoofer speakers have
been placed as recommended in the Quick Setup (page
5). Additionally, confirm that the system has been wired as
recommended in the Quick Setup (page 5).
2.
Before starting the calibration process, turn the level down on the
satellite and the subwoofer speakers. High-level test signals can
damage the speakers, and more importantly your ears.
3.
Patch a pink noise generator, tape or other source with at least 60
seconds of 0dBu Pink Noise into your console. If you are using a
digital source, the test signal should measure -20dB FS (0dB FS =
Full Scale Digital).
4.
Turn on the pink noise source and confirm that the console, or
digital workstation is generating -20dB FS / 0dBVU at the output
meters.
5.
Slowly bring up the gain of the left satellite speaker only. Bring up
the level until you measure 85dB on the C scale, with the response
set to Slow. SPL should be measured at the mix position, with
the SPL meter at arms length, with the microphone at seated ear
height, angled at approximately 45 degrees, and pointed at the
center point between the left and right speakers. If you are using
an RTA align the level of the speakers to 70dB reference line on the
analyzer.
6.
Repeat step 5 for the right speaker. (Make sure that you only align
one channel at a time, do not run signal through the left channel
while calibrating the right channel!)
7.
Now, that you have set the approximate level for the right and left
speakers, it is time to set the level for the subwoofer.
8.
If you are using an SPL meter proceed to step 10. If you are using a RTA
turn on the pink noise generator to the left or right channel. Confirm
that the channel, without the subwoofer running, has a response,
which roughly aligns with the 70dB Ref Line. Now, bring up the level
of the subwoofer until its average response aligns with the 70dB
Reference Line. A note about subwoofer response: The response
of the subwoofer is strongly affected by the acoustics of the room.
Blue Sky satellite/subwoofer systems are designed to minimize the
effects of room acoustics and allow you the greatest chance of having
smooth full-range frequency response. Experimenting with subwoofer
placement can yield smoother frequency response.
Page 10
9.
If you are using an SPL meter to calibrate your system, disconnect
the signal going to the left and right satellite speakers. Turn on
the pink noise generator to either the left or right speaker. Now,
bring up the gain of the subwoofer until you are measuring 79dB
(C weighted - Slow). Because of the nature of pink noise, it is
important to measure for an extended period of time. You will
notice that the meter level will change continuously, so you may
need to do a mental average. After aligning the subwoofer
reconnect both satellite speakers.
10.
Now, it is time to listen... When listening to a properly
aligned Blue Sky satellite/subwoofer system, you will
notice extended low frequency response, wide dynamic
range, a deep sound stage and very smooth transition from
subwoofer to satellite speaker.
11.
Congratulations! You have now completed the set up of one of
the world’s finest monitoring systems. If you have any questions,

Cable and Wiring
Specifications
Use high-quality, shielded cables to connect your console, workstation or
other source to your Blue Sky monitoring system. Foil-shielded cables, such
as Belden 8451, 8761, or 9501 should do quite well. Other high quality
cables are available and those that incorporate better shielding will yield an
overall higher noise rejection, lowering your systems susceptibility to external
interference. Another important tip to keep in mind when wiring your system
is to route all line level cables away from the AC and other power sources, this
will reduce the probability of having AC hum emanating from your monitoring
system.

The Functional Volume Control (FVC) is a simple yet effective hardwired
remote control that is designed to be used with the SUB 8 as part of a
ProDesk™ 2.1 System (future subwoofer models may also take advantage of
this feature). For 5.1 channel systems the FVC should not be used and
instead the Blue Sky BMC should be used. (For more information on the
Blue Sky BMC, please visit www.abluesky.com)

Connection and Operation
The FVC is designed to connect to the SUB 8 via standard 6 conductor modem
cable and RJ11 jack (included with the remote). The maximum length for this
wire should not exceed 100 feet.

Once connected, the Functional Volume Control (FVC) controls the gain of the
Left and Right input channels of the Sub 8. The FVC does not control the gain
of the external / direct SUB IN channel. However, the FVC will control the level
of the Left & Right summed and derived subwoofer signal that is sent to the
SUB OUT jack and the internal subwoofer amplifier. Calibration levels between
the SUB 8 and SAT 5 are not affected by the FVC and calibration should be
done as stated in the ProDesk™ manual.
