weight of the device.
- Avoid locations that are exposed to constant vibration.
- Use the required tools to install the device.
- Inspect the device periodically.
Connections
• Before connecting the device to a power amplifier, 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 connectors.
Use of other types of cables may result in fire.
Maintenance
• Do not wipe the outer packaging with benzine, thinner, or synthetic detergent
and do not use electrical contact cleaner. These may damage the outer
packaging and dissolve the parts.
• Avoid inserting or dropping foreign objects (paper, plastic, metal, etc.) into
holes of the grille. If this happens, have the device inspected by qualified
Yamaha service personnel.
• Do not operate the device if the sound is distorting. Prolonged use in this
condition could cause overheating and result in fire.
• When choosing a power amplifier for use with this device, make sure that the
output power of the amplifier is lower than the power capacity of this device
(see SPECIFICATIONS).
Even if the output power of the amplifier is lower than the power capacity of
this device (PGM), use of excessive input signals resulting in clipping may
cause damage to the device.

NOTICE
To avoid the possibility of malfunction/damage to the product or damage to other
property, follow the notices below.
● Handling and Maintenance
• Do not place vinyl, plastic or rubber objects on the device, since this might
discolor the panel.
• When cleaning the device, use a dry and soft cloth. Do not use paint thinners,
solvents, cleaning fluids, or chemical-impregnated wiping cloths.
• Condensation can occur in the device due to rapid, drastic changes in
ambient temperature-when the device is moved from one location to another,
or air conditioning is turned on or off, for example. Using the device while
condensation is present can cause damage. If there is reason to believe that
condensation might have occurred, leave the device for several hours until
the condensation has completely dried out.
• Be sure to observe the amplifier’s rated load impedance (see
SPECIFICATIONS), particularly when connecting speakers in parallel.
Connecting an impedance load outside the amplifier’s rated range can
damage the amplifier.
• When connecting the speakers with high impedance, be sure that the output
total of each speaker does not exceed the rated output of the power amplifier.
• When using a high-impedance speaker connection, make sure the audio
signal is passed through an 80 Hz or above high-pass filter before being input
to the speakers. For VXS5/VXS5W, UL Listing is void without this connection.
• ABOUT THE PROTECTION CIRCUIT
This speaker system has an internal protection circuit that shuts off the
speaker unit when an excessive input signal is applied.
If the speaker unit emits no sound, reduce the volume level of the amplifier
immediately.
The sound will return automatically in several seconds.
• Place the speaker on a flat and smooth surface.
• Do not place the speaker on the ground with the grille faced down.
• Do not touch the speaker driver unit.
