PLACING THE
SPEAKERS
■Using as 2ch stereo speakers
Better stereo images will be obtained when the speakers are
slightly angled in towards the listeners.
Fasten screws into a firm wall or wall support as shown in the
figure, and hang the holes of the mounting bracket on the
protruding screws. By setting the two supplied bass control plugs
into the ports on the rear of the speaker, the tone and volume
balance of the low bass sound produced between the port and the
wall will be optimized.
* Make sure that the screws are securely in the narrow sections of
the holes.
