WARNING:
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK:
Do not expose this apparatus to rain or moisture.
Do not use the speakers near water, and do not immerse them in any liquid or pour any liquid on them.
Do not block the openings in the speaker cabinets, never push objects into speaker vents or slots because of fire or electric
shock hazards, and provide sufficient space around the speakers for proper ventilation.
Do not install near any heat sources such as radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other apparatus (including amplifiers) that
produce heat.
Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized plug. A polarized plug has two blades with one wider than the other. The
wider blade is provided for your safety. If the provided plug does not fit into your outlet, consult an electrician for replacement
of the obsolete outlet. Protect the power cord from being walked on or pinched particularly at plugs, convenience receptacles,
and the point where they exit from the apparatus.
For added protection during lightning storms, unplug the speakers from the electrical outlet and turn off the computer.
Unplug this apparatus when unused for long periods of time.
Heat---- Place the speakers away from all heat sources, such as heat registers, stoves, and direct sunlight.
Ventilation ---- Do not block the openings in the speaker cabinets, never push objects into speaker vents or slots because of
fire or electric shock hazards, and provide sufficient space around the speakers for proper ventilation.
Location ---- Place the speakers in a stable location so that it will not fall causing damage to the speakers or bodily harm.
Cleaning --- Unplug the speakers from the computer and from the electrical outlet before cleaning them with a damp cloth.
Lightning ----For added protection during lightning storms, unplug the speakers from the electrical outlet and turn off the
computer. Servicing is required when the apparatus has been damaged in any way, such as the power-supply cord or plug is
damaged, liquid has been spilled or objects have fallen into the apparatus, the apparatus has been exposed to rain or moisture,
does not operate normally, or has been dropped. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel only.

Trouble Shooting Guide
Sound from only one Speaker
Please ensure all speaker cable connections are correct. Please try an alternate sound source such as
a CD player, MP3 or other player. If both speakers now work correctly, the original sound source is at
fault. Please ensure the computer Soundcard is installed correctly.
When playing CD from computer, only one Speaker has sound
Mostly this phenomenon tends to occur with a new computer - only one satellite works when playing an
audio CD, but all work correctly when running a WAV file or playing a Game. The reason for this is the
CD-ROM is not matched with the Soundcard, or one signal channel maybe shorted to a ground wire.
Also please refer to the CD-ROM user manual to adjust the jumpers.
No sound from any of the speakers
1. Please ensure AC power is plugged in and the power outlet is switched On.
2. Please ensure all speaker audio cable connections are correct.
3. Please ensure sound source equipment output is working correctly.
Speakers exhibit excessive noise
Edifier speakers are of a very low noise circuit design. Some source equipment may have a poor signal
to noise ratio. Therefore, please unplug the input audio cable, and check if the noise is from the CD/DVD
player or the Computer Soundcard etc.
Magnetically Shielded Speakers
Edifier system subwoofers and satellite speakers are all of a magnetically shielded design. You can place
the speakers near a TV or monitor. However, it is wise to allow a 0.2-1 m distance between the speakers
and monitor to avoid possible magnetic field interference.
Listening Tips:
All high quality speaker systems benefit from a running-in period on normal music sources to stabilize
their intended properties.
To optimize the sound quality from your system:
Sit in a comfortable position at the computer desktop. Take time to test the listening environment by
using music CDs with wide frequency content and spacious left-to-right imaging. The speaker driver
used in the loudspeakers will change their characteristics subtly over the first two weeks of use as the
suspension of the cones will loosen up slightly, producing a trace more warmth to the overall sound
texture. Adjust the speaker placement for the most realistic imaging and tonal balance by listening to
several different musical selections and game or computer sound effects.
For optimum acoustic performance, we recommend that you place your speakers at least 6-8” from
rear walls to reduce unwanted reflections that can muddy your sound. Bass frequencies may be
enhanced or exaggerated by placing your speakers close to a wall or corner. Please feel free to
experiment with the system's location to obtain the most pleasing effects.
Edifier couples incredible technology with an amplified loudspeaker system to generate smooth deep
bass, crystal clear highs, and enough power to ensure that your personal listening experience allows
you to hear what you have been missing!
