Manual de instrucciónes
Thank you for choosing the YAMAHA speaker system. In
order to take maximum advantage of the speaker’s features
and ensure maximum performance and longevity, please
read this manual carefully before using the speaker system.
Keep the manual in a safe place for future reference.

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 user-serviceable 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
• 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.
• If you use speaker stands, 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.
• If you use a metal socket of the SW115V/SW118V 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.
2
Connections
• 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.
• Use only speaker cables for connecting speakers to the
speaker jacks. Use of other types of cables may result in
fire.
• Be sure to observe the amplifier’s rated load impedance
(see page 4), particularly when connecting speakers in
parallel. Connecting an impedance load outside the amplifier’s rated range can damage the amplifier.
Handling caution
• Do not use the device for a long period of time at a high or
uncomfortable volume level, since this can cause permanent hearing loss. If you experience any hearing loss or
ringing in the ears, consult a physician.
• Do not operate the device if the sound is distorting. Prolonged use in this condition could cause overheating and
result in fire.
• 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.
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 6). 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
ENGLISH
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.
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. Reapply 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.
On the SW115V/SW118V/SW218V sub woofer, the Poly
Switch protects the woofer and a similar routine should be
followed if its output is lost.
• 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.
* Illustrations in this manual are for explanatory purposes
only, and may not match the actual appearance of the product during operation.
* Company names and product names used in this Owner’s
Manual are trademarks or registered trademarks of their
respective owners.

Connecting the Speakers
■ 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
■ Full-range Connection
Each speaker 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 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
parallel-connected 8-ohm speakers have a total impedance of 4 ohms. The S112V/S115V/SM10V/SM12V/
SM15V/SW115V/SW118V are 8-ohm speakers, and two of these can safely be paralleled on one output. The
S215V/SW218V, however, has an impedance of 4 ohms and should not be parallel-connected with another
S215V/SW218V or any other model. These models can be connected in parallel, however, if you are using a
power amplifier that can safely drive load impedances of 2 ohms or lower.

Adding subwoofers to speaker systems like the one shown in the diagram can provide superior dynamic range and
overall sound quality. After inputting the line-level audio from the preamplifier or mixing console into the Yamaha
P-series power amplifiers (P7000S/P5000S/P3500S/P2500S), the separate frequency bands are outputted from the
amplifiers.
