Introduction
Welcome to the Audioengine family and congratulations on your purchase!
The Audioengine 2 was designed by our in-house development team and
built to provide many years of enjoyment. Creating powered multimedia
speakers to follow the Audioengine 5 was a challenge but we feel we‘ve
managed to duplicate the signature sound of the Audioengine 5‘s in a
smaller package perfectly suited for a desktop or smaller space. The Audioengine 2 is a great introduction to high-quality audio and the perfect
upgrade for your computer or iPod.
Many thanks to all who helped out. If it wasn‘t for our customers, resellers,
reviewers, engineering team, and many others we never would have been
able to complete this product.
Unpacking
Your Audioengine speakers were carefully tested and inspected before
packaging and shipping. After unpacking please check for any damage. It is
rare that a unit is damaged during shipping, but if this does happen contact
the shipping company immediately. We recommend that you keep the
original carton and packing material.
Speaker Placement
Place your Audioengine 2 speakers at a comfortable listening location with
no obstructions at the front or back. We recommend at least 3 inches of
clearance around the back of the left speaker, with good air circulation (as
the amplifier does require some heat dissipation).

Connecting your system
Step 1– Connecting the Speaker Wire
Connect the RED (+) and BLACK (-) terminals from the left speaker to the
corresponding terminals on the right speaker using the included speaker
wire. Be sure to match the gold-colored side of the speaker wire with the
RED (+) terminals and the silver-colored side to the BLACK (-) terminals on
each speaker.
As the Audioengine 5 speaker system is self-powered, do not connect the
speaker terminals to the speaker outputs of a stereo receiver.
Detailed Procedure:
1 Use your thumb and finger to unscrew the binding post connectors.
2 Insert each speaker wire into the holes on the side of binding post
connectors.
3 Retighten the binding posts with your fingers.
4 The stripped portion of the wire should be secured firmly in each
connector.
Repeat the procedure to connect the other end of the speaker wire to the
other speaker. Make sure that none of the speaker wire strands have come
in contact with an adjoining terminal.

Connecting your system (continued)
Step 2– Connecting the Power Supply
Be sure that the volume/power switch on the rear panel is in the OFF position by rotating it counterclockwise until it clicks off.
1 Connect the DIN power cable from the power supply to the rear DIN
power input connector on the speaker. Note: This connector is “keyed”
for proper alignment. Do not use excessive force on the connector.
2 Connect the AC power cable to the other end of the power supply.
3 Connect the AC power cable to a power outlet.
4 Verify that the LED indicator on the power supply is illuminated.
Use only the power supply provided with the speakers.
Step 3– Connecting the Audio Source
Using the appropriate audio cable (either 1⁄8” mini-jack or RCA), connect the
speaker to your audio source (computer, iPod, other MP3 player, etc.).
1⁄8” mini-jack audio cables are provided with your speakers.
Step 4– Enjoying the sound
1 Turn on the rear panel volume/power knob, and set the volume control
to an initial setting of about 3 o’clock.
2 Turn on your audio source, and adjust to your desired listening level.
Two audio sources may be connected into the speakers at the same time.
We recommend using the volume control on each audio source to adjust the
overall volume.
We also recommend using a high-quality surge suppressor and/or AC line
filter on all electronics equipment.

Basic Troubleshooting
If the LED indicator on the power supply is not illuminated:
t Check to see that the AC power cord is securely connected to the power
supply and to the AC power outlet.
t Check that the AC power outlet is supplying power.
If the speakers do not produce sound:
t Check that the cable from the power supply is connected to the rear
panel, and that the LED indicator on the power supply is illuminated.
t Check that the volume/power knob on the rear panel is not set to minimum volume or powered off (we recommend at least a 10 o’clock position).
t Check that the volume level of your audio source in not set to minimum
or powered off.
t Check that the wire from your audio source to your speakers is properly
connected (occasionally the 1/8” cables feel as if they are inserted all
the way, but are not).
If the speakers produce sound from the left speaker but not the right:
t Check that the speaker wires are correctly connected between the left
and right speaker binding posts.
t Check that the wire from your audio source to your speakers is properly
connected.
If the sound is distorted:
t Decrease the volume of the input audio source and increase the volume
of the speakers.
