Precautions
Please read the following operating precautions before use. Yamaha will not be held responsible for any damage and/or
injury caused by not following the cautions below.
1. To assure the finest performance, please read this
manual carefully. Keep it in a safe place for future
reference.
2. Install the speakers in a cool, dry, clean place – away
from windows, sources of heat, sources of excessive
vibration, dust, moisture or cold. Avoid sources of
electrical humming (e.g., transformers and motors). To
prevent fire or electric shock, do not expose the
speakers to rain or water.
3. To prevent the enclosure from warping or discoloring,
do not expose the speakers to direct sunlight or
excessive humidity.
4. Avoid installing the speakers where foreign objects may
fall onto them and/or where they may be exposed to
liquid dripping or splashing.
5. Do not place the following objects on top of the
speakers:
– Other components, as they might damage or discolor
the surface of the speakers.
– Burning objects (e.g., candles), as they might cause
fire, damage to the speakers or personal injury.
– Containers of liquid, as they might spill and cause
electric shock to the user or damage to the speakers.
6. Do not place the speakers where they are liable to be
knocked over or struck by falling objects. Stable
placement will also ensure better sound performance.
7. Placing the speakers on the same shelf or rack as the
turntable can result in feedback.
8. Any time you note distortion, reduce the volume control
on your amplifier to lower setting. Never allow your
amplifier to be driven into “clipping”. Otherwise, the
speakers may be damaged.
9. When using an amplifier with a rated output power
higher than the nominal input power of the speakers,
care should be taken not to exceed the maximum input
of the speakers.
10. When you clean the unit, use a clean, dry and soft cloth
(such as cloth for glasses).
11. Do not attempt to modify or fix the speakers. Contact
qualified Yamaha service personnel when service is
needed. The cabinet should never be opened for any
reason.
12. Be sure to read the “Troubleshooting” section regarding
common operating errors before concluding that the
speakers are faulty.
13. Secure placement or installation is the owner’s
responsibility. Yamaha is not liable for accidents
caused by improper placement or installation of
speakers.
For NS-SW40
WARNING
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE OR ELECTRIC
SHOCK, DO NOT EXPOSE THIS APPLIANCE TO
RAIN OR MOISTURE.
i En
1. Do not operate this unit upside down. It may overheat,
possibly causing damage.
2. Do not use excessive force on switches, controls or
connection wires. When moving this unit, first
disconnect the power plug and the wires connected to
other equipment. Never pull the wires themselves.
3. Never put a hand or a foreign object into the port
located on the right side of this unit. When moving this
unit, do not hold the port, as it might cause personal
injury and/or damage to this unit.
4. Since this unit has a built-in power amplifier, heat
radiates from the rear panel. Place the unit away from
walls, allowing at least 20 cm (8") of space above,
behind and on both sides of the unit to prevent fire or
damage. Furthermore, do not position the unit with the
rear panel facing down on the floor or other surfaces.
5. When using a humidifier, be sure to avoid condensation
inside this unit by allowing enough space around the
unit and avoiding excess humidification. Condensation
might cause fire, damage to the unit, and/or electric
shock.
6. Do not cover the rear panel of this unit with a
newspaper, tablecloth, curtain, etc. to avoid obstructing
heat radiation. If the temperature inside the unit rises, it
may cause fire, damage to the unit, or personal injury.
7. Do not plug this unit into a wall outlet until all
connections are complete.
8. The voltage to be used must match that specified on the
rear panel. Using this unit with a voltage higher than
specified is dangerous and may cause fire, damage to
the unit, and/or personal injury. Yamaha is not
responsible for damage resulting from use of this unit
with a voltage other than specified.
9. Super-bass sound reproduced by this unit may cause a
turntable to generate audio feedback. In this case, move
the unit away from the turntable.
10. This unit may be damaged if certain sounds are
continuously output at high volume level. For example,
if 20 Hz–50 Hz sine waves from a test disc or bass
sounds from an electronic instrument, etc. are
continuously output, or if a turntable stylus touches the
surface of a disc, reduce the volume level to prevent the
unit from being damaged.
11. If you hear distorted noise (i.e., unnatural, intermittent
“rapping” or “hammering” sounds) from this unit,
reduce the volume level. Extremely loud movie
soundtrack low frequency, bass-heavy sounds, or
similarly loud popular music passages can damage this
unit.
12. Vibration generated by super-bass sound may distort
images on a TV. In this case, move the unit away from
the TV set.
13. When disconnecting the power cord from the wall
outlet, grasp the plug; do not pull the cord.
14. When you plan not to use this unit for a long period of
time (i.e. vacation, etc.), disconnect the AC power plug
from the wall outlet.
15. Install this unit near the wall outlet and where the AC
power plug can be reached easily.
Precautions
This unit is not disconnected from the AC power
source as long as it is connected to the wall outlet, even
if this unit itself is turned off. In this state, this unit is
designed to consume a very small quantity of power.
For U.K. customers
If the socket outlets in the home are not suitable for the
plug supplied with this appliance, it should be cut off and
an appropriate 3 pin plug fitted. For details, refer to the
instructions described below.
Note: The plug severed from the mains lead must be
destroyed, as a plug with bared flexible cord is hazardous
if engaged in a live socket outlet.
Caution
The speaker is constructed
with the majority of the
weight located in its upper
portion, and is thus
susceptible to falling over if
proper care is not taken to
ensure its stability. If the
speaker tips over, the speaker
or other personal property may be damaged or an
individual may be injured (possibly even fatally
injured).
SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR U.K. MODEL
IMPORTANT:
THE WIRES IN MAINS LEAD ARE COLOURED
IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE FOLLOWING
CODE:
Blue: NEUTRAL
Brown: LIVE
As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this
apparatus may not correspond with the coloured
markings identifying the terminals in your plug,
proceed as follows: The wire which is coloured
BLUE must be connected to the terminal which is
marked with the letter N or coloured BLACK. The
wire which is coloured BROWN must be connected
to the terminal which is marked with the letter L or
coloured RED. Make sure that neither wire is
connected to the earth terminal of a three pin plug.
For safe and proper use of the speaker:
• Position the speaker in a location that is solid, level,
smooth, and low (with respect to the floor).
• Do not push or apply pressure to the side of the
speaker when moving, or lean objects against the
side of the speaker.
• Do not sit on or set objects on top of the speaker.
Vibrations or jolts associated with earthquakes and
other phenomena or activities may cause the speaker to
fall over. For safety reasons, using commerciallyavailable products that increase stability of the speaker
is recommended (metal fittings or chains, etc.).

Installing the speakers
Before you connect the speakers, place each speaker in
its respective location. Speaker positioning is very
important as it affects the overall sound quality of the
system. Place the speakers in locations that will
optimize the sound quality at your listening position.
Refer to the illustration.
Installing the subwoofer
Place the subwoofer on the outside of either the right
or the left front speaker, as shown in A and B.
A
The position of the subwoofer is not as critical as the
position of the other speakers because sub-bass
sounds are not very directional. Refer to “Installing the
subwoofer” for more information.
Note
Placing the speakers too close to a CRT-type TV may
impair the picture color or cause a buzzing noise. In
this case, move the speakers at least 20 cm (8") away
from the TV. This is not an issue with LCD and plasma
TVs.

Installing the front, center,
and surround speakers
Front speakers (NS-F40): Place the two front
speakers on the left and right sides of the TV facing
directly forward.
Center speaker (NS-C40): Place the center speaker
centrally between the front speakers, facing directly
forward.
Surround speakers (NS-B40): Place the left and
right surround speakers behind your listening
position, facing slightly inward.
The center and surround speakers can be placed on a
flat surface or wall- mounted.
See “Wall-mounting the speakers” for more
information.
3 En
Front speaker
The placement shown in C is also possible, however, if
the subwoofer is placed directly facing a wall and your
listening position is in the center of the room, you may
not be able to obtain enough bass sound from the
subwoofer. This is because “standing waves” are
forming between the two parallel walls and cancelling
out the bass sounds. In this case, position the
subwoofer at an angle to the wall. It may be necessary
to break up parallel wall surfaces by placing
bookshelves, etc., along them.
Wall-mounting the speakers
You can mount the speakers on the wall as follows.
1
Install screws (commercially available) into a
solid wall or wall support as shown in the
illustration. Use 3.5 to 4 mm (1/8") diameter
self-tapping screws.
2
Hang each speaker by its keyhole slots onto
the protruding screws.
Note
Make sure the shaft of the screw is seated in the
narrow part of the keyhole slot. Otherwise, the speaker
may fall.

screws may pull out of the surface and the speakers
may fall, possibly damaging the speakers or causing
personal injury.
• Do not affix the speakers to a wall using nails,
adhesives, or unstable hardware. Long-term use and
vibration may cause the speakers to fall.
• To avoid accidents resulting from tripping over loose
speaker cables, affix the cables to the wall.
• Mount the speakers in a wall location that will be
unlikely to result in injury to an individual’s head.

Connecting the speakers
■ Preparing the speaker cables
■ For the front speakers
Once you’ve positioned the speakers, you’ll need to cut
the 24.5-meter (80 ft.) speaker cable to make five
cables for connecting the two front speakers, center
speaker, and the two surround speakers.
1
1
Cut the included speaker cable to suitable
lengths for the front, center, and surround
speakers. You need five cables.
2
Remove about 10 mm (3/8") of insulation from
the end of each speaker cable.
3
After connecting the cable, fit it into the
groove on the rear panel of each Bottom.

Note
• Make the speaker cables as short as possible. Do not
bundle or roll up excess cable.
• Be careful not to trip on the speaker cable.
Otherwise, the speaker may tip over, possibly
resulting in personal injury.
• Twist the bare wires tightly so the individual strands
are not splayed.
• Be careful not to injure yourself while preparing the
speaker cables.
Pass the cable behind the four
projections.

After the cable is fit in place down to the Base,
pass the cable through the hole in the Base.
Pull the cable gently from the underside of the
Base and pass it through the notch on the
Base.
Using the Subwoofer
Caution
• To move the front speaker to another location, grasp
both the Base and Bottom.
• If a cable comes off a notch, affix the cable into the
notch using adhesive tape.
• Make sure that children do not lean on the speaker.
Otherwise, it may tip over, possibly resulting in
personal injury.
In your AV receiver’s speaker size settings, specify
small (or “S”) for all of the NS-PA40 speakers.
■ Connecting the speakers
Once you’ve completed all of the speaker and
subwoofer connections, plug the subwoofer, amplifier,
and your other AV components into suitable AC wall
outlets.
Connect each speaker to the appropriate speaker
terminals on your amplifier by using the cables you
prepared earlier. See the “Connection diagram” on
page 4 for reference.
Make sure you connect the speakers with the correct
polarity—positive (+) terminals to positive (+)
terminals, and negative (–) terminals to negative (–)
terminals. If you get them crossed over, the sound will
be unnatural and lack bass.
If you’re connecting the subwoofer to a Yamaha DSP
amplifier or AV receiver, connect to its SUBWOOFER
or LOW PASS output.
