PRO-SWS300 Amplified Multimedia Subwoofer
Satellite Speaker System
Your Optimus PRO-SWS300 Amplified
Multimedia Subwoofer Satellite Speaker System is designed to complement
your multimedia computer. The speakers are magnetically shielded so you
can safely place them next to your PC’s
monitor.
CONNECTING INPUTS
The system can also transform your
portable CD player or personal cassette
player into a complete music system.
This amplified speaker system is compatible with any audio source having a
1
/8-inch stereo headphone or LINE OUT
jack.
Note: Although low frequencies are
non-directional, factors such as room
acoustics, standing waves, resonance,
and absorption strongly affect your
subwoofer’s performance. For maximum bass output, place your subwoofer in a corner. To reduce its output,
move it away from corners and back
walls. Even slightly moving the subwoofer can have a major effect on bass
response.
The system’s 4-inch subwoofer and 3inch satellite speakers produce excellent stereo sound with powerful bass.
You can connect either of two optional
input sources to the system:
• A computer’s sound card
• A portable or home stereo system
This symbol is intended to alert you

WARNING: To reduce the risk of
fire or shock hazard, do not expose this product to rain or moisture.

Connecting to a Sound Card
You can connect the system to the audio output of a computer’s sound card
using the supplied Y-adapter cord.
(illus)
Connect the Y-adapter cord’s 1/8-inch
stereo plug to the 1/8-inch stereo output
jack on your computer’s sound card.
Then connect the Y-adapter cord’s right
(red) and left (white) phono plugs to the
system’s R (red) and L (white) INPUT
phono jacks.
Notes:
• If you use the input source’s LINE
OUT jack, the source’s volume
control has no effect. Use the system’s volume control.
(Illus)
• If you use the input source’s headphone jack, you can use either the
input source’s or the system’s volume control.
Or, using a shielded audio cable with
left and right phono plugs at each end
(such as Cat. No. 42-2356, not supplied), you can connect the system between your home stereo system’s right
and left LINE OUT jacks and the system’s R (red) and L (white) INPUT
phono jacks. Use the system’s volume
control.
Connecting to a Portable or
Home Stereo System
You can connect the system to a portable stereo system (such as a CD player
or cassette player) using the supplied
Y-adapter cord.
Connect the Y-adapter’s 1/8-inch stereo
plug to the input source’s 1/8-inch stereo
LINE OUT or headphone jack. Then
connect the Y-adapter’s right (red) and
left (white) phono plugs to the system’s
R (red) and L (white) INPUT phono
jacks.

OPERATION
CARE
Your Optimus PRO-SWS300 Amplified Multimedia Subwoofer Satellite
Speaker System is an example of superior design and craftsmanship. The
following suggestions will help you
care for the speaker system so you
can enjoy it for years.
• Keep the system dry. If it gets wet,
wipe it dry immediately. Liquids
might contain minerals that can
corrode the electronic circuits.
• Use and store the system only in
normal
temperature
environments. Temperature extremes can
shorten the life of electronic
devices and distort or melt plastic
parts.
1. Turn on the audio source. Then
turn on the subwoofer’s power by
rotating VOLUME/OFF/MAX clockwise until it clicks, and set it to a
comfortable listening level. The
power LED lights.
• Handle the system gently and
carefully. Dropping it can damage
the circuit boards and can cause
the speakers to work improperly.
We recommend you test the subwoofer and satellite speakers in
different locations to get the best
balance between your satellite
speakers and the subwoofer.
• Keep the system away from dust
and dirt, which can cause premature wear of parts.
2. Rotate BASS/MIN/MAX to select
the desired low frequency sound
level.
• Wipe the system with a damp
cloth occasionally to keep it looking new. Do not use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, or strong
detergents to clean the system.
3. When you are finished using the
system, turn it off by rotating VOLUME/OFF/MAX counterclockwise
until it clicks. Then turn off the
audio source.
Modifying or tampering with your system’s internal components can cause
a malfunction and might invalidate its
warranty. If your speaker system is
not operating as it should, take it to
your local RadioShack store for assistance.
