Cerwin-Vega’s Limited Warranty
days after they were completed.
Welcome to the family!
First off, you have great taste in loudspeakers. At Cerwin-Vega!,
deep bass and great highs are a way of life. Nice to know there
are a few people out there who share our passion for music. You’ll
be glad to know that this company has been in business since
1953. And we consider you to be the newest member of the family.
We hope your speakers give you years of enjoyment. Of course,
in the event of a problem, make sure you familiarize yourself with
this warranty. We like to think that while you’re sitting in front of
your speakers, we’re standing behind them. And now a few choice
words from our lawyer. (Hey, every family has one).
Who’s covered by this warranty?
Cerwin-Vega’s Limited Warranty on residential speakers extends
only to the original purchaser as evidenced by the original
Bill of Sale and only to the residential speakers purchased from
authorized Cerwin-Vega! dealers.
Ten words of advice: retain the original bill of sale, in a safe place!
What’s covered by this warranty?
Cerwin-Vega! warrants that all new residential speakers shall
be free from defects in material and workmanship, under normal
and proper use. Cerwin-Vega! agrees to repair or replace (at our
option) all such defective parts at no charge for labor or materials.
What’s not covered by this warranty?
This Limited Warranty does not apply to defective equipment
that: has been altered or repaired by other than factory approved
procedures; has been subjected to negligence, misuse or
accident; has been damaged by improper line voltage; had its
serial number or any part of it altered, defaced, or removed; has
been used for other than home entertainment purposes; or has
been used in a way that is contrary to Cerwin-Vega’s written
instructions.
Except as provided by statute, this Limited Warranty does not
cover losses, consequential or otherwise, resulting from the
improper use of, or inability to operate, any Cerwin-Vega! product.
How long does the warranty extend?
Cerwin-Vega’s Limited Warranty extends for a period of five (5)
years for all system speaker components, from date of purchase
as shown on the original Bill of Sale. If a defect exists within the
warranty period, the warranty will not expire until the defect has
been fixed.
The warranty period will also be extended if the warranty repairs
have not been performed due to delays caused by circumstances
beyond the control of the original purchaser, or if the warranty
repairs did not remedy the defect and the original purchaser
notifies Cerwin-Vega! or the original dealer or an Authorized
Cerwin-Vega! Service Center of the failure of the repairs within 30

1) Fuse Holder
1) Full range Binding Post
2) Midrange and Tweeter Input 5-Way Binding Posts
(Red=+, Black + -)
Wiring: One pair of speaker wire is used with one speaker and
one amplifier channel.
3) Jumper Straps
4) Woofer Input 5 Way-Binding Posts (Red=+, Black + -)
Normal wiring: In this method, one pair of speaker wire is
used with one speaker and one amplifier channel. This method is
used in the majority of applications.
Connection: Attach speaker wires to either the Midrange
and Tweeter Input (2) or the Woofer Input (4) 5-way Binding
Posts making sure to leave the Jumpers Straps (3) in place.
Connect the other end of the speaker wires to your Receiver
or Amplifiers speaker output terminals (see your Receiver or
Amplifiers owners manuals for details on this connection).
Make sure to observe correct polarity (Red = +, Black = -) when
making these connections.
Bi-wiring:
In this method, two pairs of speaker wire are used
with one speaker and one amplifier channel.
Connection: Remove the Jumper Straps (3) and retain for possible
future use. Attach one set of speaker wires to the Midrange and
Tweeter Input (2) 5-way Binding Posts. Next connect a second set
of speaker wires to the Woofer Input (4) 5-way Binding Posts.
Connect the other ends of the speaker wires to your Receiver
or Amplifiers speaker output terminals (see your Receiver or
Amplifiers owners manual for details on this connection).
Make sure to observe correct polarity (Red = +, Black = -) when
making these connections.
Important: The XLS-6 and XLS-6C cannot be bi-wired.
W iring
note : We recommend that you discuss Normal,
Bi-Wiring, or Bi-Amplifying options with your Authorized
Cerwin-Vega! Dealer and for recommendation on appropiate wire.

Impedance:
All CV XLS home speakers are compatible with amplifier ratings
from 4 to 8 ohms. If your amplifier is rated at 4 or 6 ohms, you can
generally play the speaker as loud and as hard as you want and
the energy transfer between the amplifier and your Cerwin-Vega!
speaker will be optimal. If using an 8-ohm amplifier, you can play
loud, but monitor your amplifier’s temperature if you start playing
at extreme volume levels, as the speaker may want to suck more
power from your amp than it can provide.
Fuse:
Replace only with the correct type and voltage fuse.
Failure to replace with the correct type and value can result in
driver failure that is not covered under your warranty.

Troubleshooting
Symptoms
Causes
Solutions
Bass sounds distorted
Amplifier is at maximum output
Receiver tone controls are set too high
Distortion with volume control near
minimum
Defective receiver or preamplifier, or
shorted speaker wires
Repair defective receiver, preamplifier or
replace speaker wires
Distortion on music peaks or sound
effects
Dynamic soundtrack (e.g., explosions)
Turn down volume control to lower overall
range
Buzz, hum, or crackle when connecting
wires
Connecting wires with power on causes
transient signal spikes
Connect wires only when system power
is Off
Buzz or hum when system is On
Grounding problem or ground loop
Check receiver or preamplifier manual for
help in eliminating a ground loop
No sound after listening at high levels
Amplifier’s thermal protection has been
temporarily activated
Lower amplifier volume and allow
amplifier to cool down; sound should
resume automatically
Lower volume or receiver level control
Set bass flat; use tone controls sparingly
