Intro
INTRODUCTION
Features
Better Music Builder is excited to introduce the next generation of the Classic Series speaker, the G2 (Generation 2). The
high performance speakers consist of three models: CS-600
G2, CS-612 G2 and CS-812 G2.

They are high performance speakers using dymanic audio
computer simulation design technology. Our development
enables these speakers to produce high quality sound,
precise clarity and strong reliability. They are made using high
temperature treated magnesium diaphragm, voice coil with
copper cladding aluminum wire, and compression cavity
designed with linear phase technology. Magnetic circuit of
tweeter generates high magnetic energy, low distortion,
excellent ventilation function, and high strength plywood that
can absorb unwanted noise for high performance.
The greatest improvement in terms of structure from the first
generation Classic Series is the added mid frequency
tweeter, making the second generation three-way speakers.
The midrange driver may very well be the most significant
part of the audio sound spectrum as it creates sounds which
are most familiar to the human ear such as musical instruments
and human voice.

Unchanged is its elegant design. The CS-600 G2 and the
CS-812 G2 speakers are designed with a black and smooth
MDF (medium density fiberboard) wood gloss layered finish.
It provides stronger foundation for both structure and sound.
The material is utilized based on the principle that softer
wood provides smoother and clearer audio output like a
grand piano.

Either banana plug or insert type can be used to connect the
unit to speakers. Be sure to connect red (+) to red (+) and
black (–) to black (–). Otherwise, the sound output would be
180° out of phase and distorted.
Follow these steps if you are inserting the wire directly into the
speaker terminal.
8 ohm
1. Strip off the vinyl covering and twist the tip of the wire core.
2. Loosen the knob and insert the wire core into the
terminal hole.
3. Tighten the knob to fix the wire core in place.
Do not allow the wire core to protrude or touch other terminals
or wires. If the cores of differing wires touch, damage may
result to your components.

CONNECTING THE SPEAKER WITH 5-D PRO AUDIO (SUPERIOR FORMAT)
Please refer to the diagram
on the right for connecting
the speakers to the 5-D Pro
Audio system designed by
the Better Music Builder
engineering team.
The concept of 5-D Pro
Audio technology is the
same as that of the 3-D
Positional Audio technology.
The 5-D Pro Audio
technology factors in the
echo and reverb generated
by the size and shape of the
room as well as the materials
used in the construction of
the room into the Digital
Signal Processing equation.
The control feedback can
easily be done from the front
panel as with the adjustment
of vocal and music effects
between the center and main
speakers.

4. PLACING THE SPEAKERS ON THE PORTABLE
STAND
The speakers can be mounted on to the optional portable
stand (see figure below). Make sure that the mounting system
(hardware, stand, etc.) is capable of supporting four times the
weight (approximately 25 lbs per speaker) of the speakers.
Installing Speaker Stand External Adapter Mount
When installing the speaker to the external adapter mount,
please use the screws already on the speaker. If the head of
the screw is too small for the rectangular gap on the external
adapter mount, place a flat washer in between the screw
and the gap.
Part Number: AMS001B (Optional).

RIGHT SPEAKER
(Stand is not included)
Please do not stack two-pieces
of speakers onto the adjustable
speaker stand. If you need two more
speakers to increase the output volume,
we recommend you to use a high
power speaker instead of stacking
two-pieces of speaker on the
adjustable speaker stand for safety
purpose. You may also contact us at
www.bettermusicbuilder.com for
professional advice.
To stabilize the hold on external adapter mount to the pole,
apply the tightening knob to the external adapter mount.

Troubleshooting
TROUBLESHOOTING
1. SYMPTOM: NO SOUNDS COMING OUT FROM THE
SPEAKERS
3. SYMPTOM: NOISES FROM THE SPEAKER.
Probable cause:
Probable causes:
The A/C power cord of the speaker is not grounded.
1. The A/C power of the speaker is not turned on.
Remedy:
2. Chose the wrong A/C power selection (i.e. 110V~
220V).
Change a new magnet cord of the A/C power cord.
Remedy:
4. SYMPTOM: MICROPHONE VOLUME IS TOO LOW.
A. Turn on the A/C power of the speaker.
Probable causes:
B. Check the receiver or amplifier if it is on and the source is
playing.
A. The microphone is poorly connected to the speaker.
B. The volume on the speaker is too low.
C. Check all wires and connections between receivers,
amplifiers and speakers. Make sure all wires are connected.
None of the speaker wires are frayed, cut or punctured, and
no wires are touching each other.
Remedy:
A. Check the connection between the microphone and the
speaker. Make sure that they are connected properly.
Condense microphone doesn't work with the speaker. You
may need to change to a dynamic vocal microphone.
D. Review proper operation of your receiver or amplifier.
E. Choose the right A/C power.
B. Turn the volume to an appropriate level. If the volume is
still not high enough, you may need to upgrade your existing
audio system to a system with much higher output.
2. SYMPTOM: NO SOUNDS COMING OUT FROM ONLY
ONE SPEAKER
Probable cause:
5. SYMPTOM: CRACKING NOISES FROM THE SPEAKER.
The A/C power of the speaker is not turned on.
Probable cause:
Remedy:
The tweeter may be burned out.
A. Check the "Balance" control on your receiver or amplifier.
Remedy:
B. Check all wires and connections between receiver,
amplifier and speaker. Make sure all wires are connected.
Make sure none of the speaker wires are frayed, cut or
punctured, and that no wires are touching each other.
Replace with a new tweeter.
Note: we recommend hiring a professional to change a
tweeter in order to do it properly.
C. In Dolby® Digital or DTS ® mode, make sure that the
receiver or processor is configured so that the speaker in
question is enabled.
6. SYMPTOM: SOUNDS LIKE DAZZ, DAZZ, DAZZ ........
COMING FROM THE SPEAKER.
D. Turn off all electronics and switch the speaker in question
with another speaker that is working correctly. Turn
everything back on, and determine whether the problem is in
the same place: i.e., the speaker that was working previously
now has no sound and the speaker that was not working
now sounds fine. If the problem is in the same place, the
source of the problem is most likely with your receiver or
amplifier, and you should consult the owner's manual for
further information. If the problem is with the speaker, consult
your dealer for further assistance, or visit our web site for
technical support.
Probable cause:
The speakon cable (with small gauges) is over 100 feet for
connection.
Remedy:
Change to a cable with 12 or 14 gauges or a high quality
cable with bigger size.

Final Words
7. SYMPTOM: TOO MUCH MICROPHONE FEEDBACK
FROM THE SPEAKER.
FINAL WORDS TO USER
The engineering team of Better Music Builder has many
years of experience in audio equipment design. The team
constantly develops new audio technologies, designs
innovative audio and karaoke equipment to suit your specific
needs and provides you great ideas for home entertainment.
Probable cause:
Incorrect tremble and bass adjustments on the speaker.
Remedy:
Our engineering team also designs audio equipments for
commercial use by restaurants, coffee shops, churches, and
school auditoriums, etc. If the commercial area for audio
equipment installation exceeds 2,000 square feet, we highly
recommend hiring audio professionals to handle the
installation to avoid damaging the equipment with improper
installation and safety protection purposes.
Adjust the tremble and bass to an appropriate level to avoid
microphone feedback.
8. SYMPTOM: NO SOUND FROM THE MAIN SPEAKERS
Probable cause:
Speakon connectors are not connected properly.
We also provide educational and technical information on
audio equipments and technologies. For example, we
provide free installation diagrams to make it easier to
connect the system. In addition, to get best connections for
the sharpest image and sound quality, we provide hot tip for
choosing high quality A/V cables. Free information on audio
equipments and technologies is available for download on
our website, w w w.B et terM usicB uil d er.com.
Remedy:
Please make sure that the speakon connectors are locked
tight. Please also note that there are two groups of speakon
connectors (i.e. Group 1 +1, –1, Group 2 +2, –2). Make
sure that your speakers have the multifunction that enables the
connection to Group 2 for different signal inputs. The basic
connection is on Group 1 (+1, –1).
Please do not remove the “Yellow Label”
in the rear of the machine; otherwise, the
warranty will be void automatically. We

professional technician. To learn more
about the technical aspects, visit our website
w w w.B et terM usic B uil d er.com and download relevant
information for review.
9. SYMPTOM: SOMETIMES THE SPEAKERS HAVE NO
SOUND.
Probable cause:
When the master volume reaches the maximum level, the
speaker automatically shuts down because this speaker has
a built-in auto circuit to protect itself when the master volume
becomes too high.
Remedy:
Before hooking up the system, turn off the AC powers on all
machines including audio/video equipment and TV.
Otherwise, it may damage the equipment, especially on the
HDTV in which a spot might appeared on the TV screen.
After hooking up the system, double check the audio/video
connections to ensure that they are connected correctly.
Change to a higher power amplifier to work with the
speakers. Please make sure the output power of the amplifier
can match that of the speakers. Another option is to add
more speakers or subwoofers for higher output as below.
1. Add one more loudspeaker.
2. Add one more powered subwoofer.
NOTE
Sometimes, loose or poor cable quality would affect
the microphone effects, picture quality, or even cause the
machine to shut down suddenly.
We highly recommend hiring an audio professional for
advise on the right engineering for the amplifier and
speakers.
Again, we must thank you for choosing a Better Music
Builder product. We hope you can make the best use of the
machine and enjoy it for years to come. If you have any
questions regarding our product, please feel free to contact
