On placement
• Do not place the system in an inclined
position or in locations that are extremely hot,
cold, dusty, dirty, or humid or lacking
adequate ventilation, or subject to vibration,
direct sunlight or a bright light.
• Be careful when placing the unit or subwoofer
on surfaces that have been specially treated
(for example, with wax, oil, polish) as staining
or discoloration of the surface may result.
On heat buildup
• Heat buildup on the unit during operation is
normal and is not a cause for alarm.
• Do not touch the cabinet if it has been used
continuously at a high volume because the
