UNDER CABINET INSTALLATION
1) Choose an appropriate mounting location underneath a cabinet or shelf. Close proximity to an electrical
outlet, a TV antenna or cable connection and a telephone jack will facilitate a neat, easy installation. Do
not mount the VE700 above a range or oven. Be sure that the location chosen will provide adequate
access to the electrical connection on the rear of the unit before continuing.
2) If the location chosen has bottom edge molding it may be necessary to use the mounting spacers provided
to effectively lower the VE700 below or even with the molding. Measure the distance between the bottom
and the bottom of the cabinet. For large molding choose a combination of spacers which will allow the
VE700 to be secured to the bottom of the cabinet.
3) Measure the thickness of the bottom of the cabinet or shelf and the spacers chosen. Select the shortest
screw length, which will secure the VE700 to the bottom of the cabinet.
4) Cut out the template supplied and tape it in place onto the cabinet surface to be drilled. Center punch the
four holes indicated on the template and remove the template.
5) Carefully drill four 1/8″ holes at the locations marked above. Place the screws selected through the VE700
and then through the spacers (if required from the bottom-up)
6) Position the VE700 and mount it in place using the selected screws. Do not over tighten.
7) Connect your TV antenna or cable system to the antenna connector on the rear of the VE700.
8) Attach the FM Dipole Antenna to the FM Antenna screws and position the antenna for the best reception.
9) If using the speakerphone feature, plug the VE700 into a phone jack.
10) Plug the AC power cable into the wall outlet.
Route the wires safely away from heat and moisture sources and secure them in place using the self-
-9-
adhesive wire-mounting clip provided.
