It provides deep, rich and creates a 3D surround effect to provide a superior audio experience. SRS WOW® Technology Delivers The Best Possible Audio Experience. This system delivers superior stereo sound with the help of advanced audio-enhancement electronics from SRS Labs, Inc., a leading provider of advanced audio solutions. SRS WOW digitally reconstructs the 3D directional cues of the original recording that are lost during the digital compression and mixing process. For the listener, SRS WOW seems to expand the stereo “sweet spot” and improves the perception of acoustic space and clarity. Additionally, SRS WOW patented techniques overcome low-frequency limitations of smaller speaker drivers to creates a deeper, richer bass response than found in typical speakers. Left / Right Channel and Mono Selection The Wireless Outdoor Speaker System comes with one speaker and is designed for either Mono or Stereo playback. For stereo playback, an additional speaker must be purchased separately. Mono playback is suggested when only one speaker is used in an area or room. Mono Playback To enable Mono playback, ensure that the switch located on the back panel of the speaker is in the MONO position. Stereo Playback To enable Stereo playback, set the switch on one of the two speakers' back panel to LEFT. Set the switch on the other speaker to RIGHT. Note 1 : It is also possible to listen to only the Left or Right audio channel using only the speaker set. To do so, simply set the switch on the speaker's back panel to LEFT or RIGHT. Only the channel selected will be audible. Note 2 : If two speakers are connected to the system, ensure both speakers are placed within the effective operational range. If either speaker is out of range it will cause distortion to both speakers. AUX In To connect an audio device directly to the speaker, insert the output audio cable from the device into the AUX In jack located on the back panel of the speaker. Note : − If the source signal is too weak for reception, the transmitter automatically switched off after approximately 4 minutes to protect the unit and save power. If the source signal returns to an − − adequate level, the transmitter automatically switches back on. When the transmitter is in Standby mode, the speaker automatically switches off after approximately 20 minutes to protect the unit and save power. To switch speaker power back on during Standby mode, press the POWER button on the remote control. The signal link between the transmitter and speaker reconnects automatically. Troubleshooting No sound − − − − − Ensure the AC adapter is securely plugged into the wall outlet and the transmitter DC IN jack. Ensure the speaker POWER button is in the ON position. Speaker batteries may be too weak. Replace with new batteries or connect with the included ac/dc adapter. Ensure the connected audio device is switched on and producing a signal. Ensure that the volume level is set to a moderate level. Distortion − − − − − Speaker batteries may be too weak, Replace with new batteries or connect with the included ac/dc adapter. Ensure that the volume level is set to a moderate level. The speakers are too fat from the transmitter. Move closer to the transmitter base. The audio input signal may be too low : increase the volume level of the audio source. If two speakers are connected to the system, ensure both speakers are placed within the effective operational range. If either speaker is out of range it will cause distortion to both speakers.

(RMS) ATTENTION: The transmitter for this speaker set is designed to work with a wide variety of devices. Our tests have shown the default volume levels of iPods, MP3 players and other devices connected to the transmitter through the headphone jack does not have the signal strength required by the transmitter. Raising the volume of your device will increase the signal strength to the transmitter. The blue signal LED will light when the required signal strength from your device is reached. We recommend that you keep the volume set on your iPod or MP3 player at a minimum of ¾ of full volume.
