Congratulations to your choise of Audio Pro subwoofer and to a new sound experience.
Audio Pro subwoofer is a unique product built with advanced technique. It is very easy to
handle and install. It is equipped with the unique Audio Pro ace-bass technique that in
combination with the built-in amplifier, the long throw woofer and the extremely solid cabinet
offers a natural and deep bass reproduction at sound levels you never thought existed.
The Audio Pro subwoofer offers extraordinary performance and lots of possibilities. In order
to get the most out of your new subwoofer, we recommend you to spend time and carefully read
these instructions before you connect and start up your system.
What is ace-bass ?
Normally, speaker design is bound to follow the laws of physics. The consequence will be, to
get deep bass, the speakerbox must be very large. With the ace-bass technique we can "change"
the laws of physics in the way that the driver believes it is placed in a much larger speaker box.
Furthermore, the ace-bass technology improves the driver performance. With the ace-bass
technique, we can design smaller subwoofers with deeper and cleaner bass.
Carefully unpack the Audio Pro subwoofer and check for any damages. If possible, keep the cartonbox if future
transportation is needed.
You should immediately contact your dealer if the subwoofer is damaged .
There are different methods to connect your subwoofer to a HiFi / Home Theater system. In the following
we explain 2 different ways. NOTE! Do not connect
the mains cord until all other installation is
2.1 To an amplifier / pre-amplifier with
Subwoofer-out terminal.
2.2 To Speaker output terminal
(High level)
Connect the enclosed cord from your amplifiers subwoofer-out terminal to LINE IN on the subwoofer.
Connect speaker cables from the speaker terminals of
your amplifier to the Speaker Level input of the subwoofer. Carefully check the polarity of the cables (+ to
+ and - to -). Connect both Left and Right channels. The
satellite speakers are connected to SPEAKER OUTPUT on the subwoofer. Again, carefully check the polarity (+ to + etc).
In this installation, the satellite speakers HIPASS crossover frequency is automatically set to 100 Hz. If you
want the speakers to perform full frequency range,
connect them to the main amplifier Speaker Output.
The audio signal is passing through the cord from the
subwoofer-out terminal to the built-in amplifier. By using
the LOWPASS control, the upper frequnency of the
subwoofer can be variably selected from 50Hz - 100
Connect the satellite speakers to the main amplifier
speaker terminals.
Power switch (7):
Volume control (5):
To switch the subwoofer amplifier to ON or OFF mode.
Make sure it is turned OFF during installation.
In ON mode, the amplifier goes automatically into
standby mode if no signal been detected in 20 minutes. The amplifier starts again when signal is detected.
The sound level of the subwoofer can be adjusted. Use
the Level control carefully, remember that
program material may contain very high energy.
Turn OFF the subwoofer when it will not be used for a
longer period of time.
Main Power indicator (on front side)
LowPass (4):
The Lowpass crossover frequency can be adjusted
variably between 50 and 100Hz. This gives you a
unique possibility to perfectly match the Subwoofer to
your satellite speakers. The lowest frequencies will be
reproduced only by the subwoofer.
The red indicator shows the operation status of the
subwoofer. Red light - subwoofer is on.
If you should face any problem with the subwoofer function, please check following points.
If the problem remains after checking these
points, please contact your dealer.
Your Audio Pro subwoofer is designed to
produce music information in the frequency
range below 100 Hz. The human ear is being
devoided the ability to localize sound of these
low frequencies why the placement of the subwoofer is not critical. Audio Pro subwoofers
steep lowpass filters make the placement
easier to fit into your listening room. However
you can use the nature of the acoustic laws in
the following ways:
To get the most amplification of the room itself,
place the subwoofer close to a corner at a
distance of about 10 cm from the walls. If you
get to much bass, move the subwoofer slightly
out from the corner or adjust the level.
By experimenting with the placement of the
subwoofer, you can optimize the sound quality.
One good rule is to place the subwoofer at the
same wall as the satellite speakers.
Never cover the subwoofer or place it where the
built-in amplifier will be covered.
Check that all connections have been made
properly. Check if any of the cables are
damaged or short-cirquit.
Audio Pro subwoofers has a sophisticated
overload protection. This protects your
subwoofer from damages caused by to high
volume setting.
