EFL Floor Stand for the E40, E50, E60, and E70 Required Tools: Hex Wrench Phillips head Screwdriver (included) (not included) E4FL Base x 2 Machine Screws x8 Floor Spikes x 12 Threaded Machine Screw x 6 Locking Washer x6 Hex Nuts x 12 E4FL Vertical Post x 2 Rubber Feet x 24 End Cap x2 per speaker 1. Remove one of the Speaker Endcaps The ends of every E Series speaker are finished with a cast-aluminum cap. For stand use, one endcap must be removed. Use the supplied hex wrench to remove the endcap. Endcap stowed Endcap 1. The E40 and 60 bookshelf models are shipped with one endcap stowed (curved side out) , and the other endcap is deployed as a base, (foot side out). Remove the deployed endcap, and save it for possible future need. This is the end of the speaker that you will attach to the stand. The E50 and 70 LCR models are shipped with the endcap stowed (curved side out) on both ends. Give consideration to whether you want your pair of speakers to have their tweeters on the outside or the inside (mirror image), which will not change the smooth sound but will alter the image width somewhat. The logo is rotatable for symmetrical appearance as well. Remove the endcap, and save it for possible future need. This is the end that you will attach to the stand. 2. Attach Rubber Feet or Carpet Spikes Rubber Feet If you are placing the stands on a hard-surface floor, such as wood, tile, concrete, vinyl, etc., use the included rubber feet for the bottom of the stand base. Two sets of rubber feet are provided in case the floor is uneven; use the extras to shim wherever the base does not touch the floor. Carpet Spikes If you are placing the stands on a carpeted floor, you may wish to install the included spikes. They make contact with the floor through the carpet, stabilizing the stand. No damage is done to the carpet, but take care not to scratch the floor beneath. The spikes can be raised or lowered to balance the stand on an uneven floor. 1) Insert the carpet spikes into the six holes on the bottom of the base. Rotate them into the base at least 1 ⁄4-inch. 2) Use the hex nuts provided to lock the spike at the desired length. OR 2. 3. Attach Base to Post Use a Phillips screwdriver to attach the base to the bottom of the post, using the three included machine screws and locking washers. The post is threaded for easy installation and aligned for correct orientation. note: The fit may be tight. You may need to use a block of wood and a hammer to aid in the attachmnet. 4. Speaker Wire Route your speaker wire through the opening on the bottom of the base, over to the bottom of the post and through it, that is, into it and out through the other end. Leave several inches of wire exposed at the top for easy connection to the speaker’s binding posts. 3. 1. 5. Mount the E Series Speaker Inspect the area where the speaker will lie to ensure that there is nothing to damage or scratch the cabinet. Then, with the speaker on its side on a soft clean surface (or the padded bag it was shipped in): 1) Turn the speaker upside down, with the speaker on a towel on the floor. 2) Connect the speaker wire from step 3 (that is, already run through the base and post) to the appropriate terminals (binding posts). 3) With the speaker in its this position, attach the post using the supplied mounting screws. Place the top of the post connection “cup” into the bottom plate opening of the speaker. 4) Align the screws and use the hex wrench to secure them (do not overtighten). 5) Lay the assembled base, post and speaker on their side, and pull the wire down to dress it neatly, leaving a little slack so as not to strain the connection. 6) Finish your installation by connecting the other end of the wire to your audi source, referring to your E Series owners’ manual for the details. 300 Jubilee Drive Peabody, MA 01960 USA 978.538.5000 bostonacoustics.com 2. 3.
