● Handling and Maintenance
• Do not place vinyl, plastic or rubber objects on the device, since this
might discolor the panel.
• When cleaning the device, use a dry and soft cloth. Do not use paint
thinners, solvents, cleaning fluids, or chemical-impregnated wiping
• Condensation can occur in the device due to rapid, drastic changes in
ambient temperature-when the device is moved from one location to
another, or air conditioning is turned on or off, for example. Using the
device while condensation is present can cause damage. If there is
reason to believe that condensation might have occurred, leave the
device for several hours until the condensation has completely dried out.
• Be sure to observe the amplifier’s rated load impedance (see
SPECIFICATIONS), particularly when connecting speakers in parallel.
Connecting an impedance load outside the amplifier’s rated range can
damage the amplifier.
• When connecting the speakers with high impedance, be sure that the
total rated input capacity of the speakers does not exceed the output
power of the amplifier.
• When using a high-impedance speaker connection, make sure the audio
signal is passed through an 80 Hz or above high-pass filter before being
input to the speakers.
This speaker system has an internal protection circuit that shuts off the
speaker unit when an excessive input signal is applied.
If the speaker unit emits no sound, reduce the volume level of the
amplifier immediately.
The sound will return automatically in several seconds.
• Do not swing the speaker by its strap.
• Do not place the speaker face down with the grille attached, as
deformation of the grille may result.
• When placing the speaker face down, always place it on a flat and
smooth surface.
• Do not touch the speaker driver unit.
