SPEAKER PLACEMENT
Proper placement of the
speakers is an important step
in obtaining the most realistic
soundstage possible. These
recommendations are for the
optimum placement of the
loudspeakers. Use these
placement recommendations
as a guide. Slight variations
will not diminish your
listening pleasure.
All of the Studio Series
loudspeakers are videoshielded and can safely be
placed near a television.
MODELS: S310II, S312II
MODEL: S26II
As Surround Speakers
As Front Speakers
5 – 6 ft.
MODEL: S38II
The S38II can be oriented
either horizontally or
vertically; however, best
performance will result from
horizontal placement. The
logo may be oriented as
needed by gently pulling it
out slightly, rotating it, and
releasing it so that it snaps
into place. Although these
loudspeakers are designed
as a mirrored pair, the
decision as to which one is
left or right will depend on
the amount of space left
between them.
For stereo-only applications:
A wider stereo image is
presented with the
tweeter/midrange array
outboard, and a tighter image
is presented with the array
inboard.
Less than 6 – 8 feet
More than 6 – 8 feet
For home theater applications:
0-2 ft.
This placement provides a
wide spread in sound,
supplemented by the center
channel speaker.

CONNECTION TIPS

Speakers and electronics
terminals have corresponding (+) and (–)
terminals. It is important
to connect both speakers
identically: (+) on the
speaker to (+) on the
amplifier and (–) on the
speaker to (–) on the
amplifier. Wiring “out of
phase” results in thin
sound, weak bass and a
poor stereo image. With

unscrew the collar until
the pass-through hole in

MODELS: S310II, S312II
These models feature four
rubber feet that enable
them to be placed on a
smooth-surfaced floor,
such as tile or hardwood.
Four metal spikes are
supplied for use when the
speaker is to be placed on
a carpeted surface to
decouple the speaker from
the floor and prevent
unwanted damping. To
insert the spikes, gently lay
the speaker on its side (not
its front or back) on a soft,
nonabrasive surface. Each
spike screws into the
threaded insert in the
center of each rubber foot.
Make sure all four spikes

NEVER drag the speaker
to move it, as this will
damage the spikes, the
feet and/or the wood
cabinet itself. Always lift
the speaker and carry it to
its new location.
CAUTION: Floorstanding

a high center of gravity
and may become unstable
and tip over during
earthquakes or if rocked,
tipped or improperly
positioned. If this is a
concern, these speakers
should be anchored to the

TROUBLESHOOTING
If there is no sound from
any of the speakers:
• Check that receiver/
amplifier is on and that a
source is playing.
• Review proper operation
of your receiver/amplifier.
If there is no sound
coming from one speaker:
• Check the “Balance”
control on your
receiver/amplifier.
• Check all wires and
connections between
receiver/amplifier
and speakers.
• Make sure no wires are
touching other wires or
terminals and creating a
short circuit.
• Make sure all wires are
connected. Make sure
none of the speaker wires
are frayed, cut or
punctured.
• In Dolby* Digital or DTS®
mode, make sure that the
receiver/processor is
configured so that the
speaker in question is
enabled.
• Turn off all electronics
and switch the speaker in
question with one of the
other speakers that is
working correctly. Turn
everything back on, and
determine whether the
problem is in the same
place, i.e., the speaker that
was working previously
now has no sound and the
speaker that was not
working now sounds fine;
or whether it has moved,
i.e., the speaker that was
not working still has no
sound and the speaker that
was working is still fine. If
the problem is in the same
place, the source of the
problem is most likely with
your receiver or amplifier,
and you should consult the
owner’s manual for that
product for further
information. If the problem
has followed the speaker,
consult your dealer for
further assistance or,
if that is not possible,
visit our Web site at
www.jbl.com for further
information.
If the system plays at low
volumes but shuts off as
volume is increased:
• Check all wires and
connections between
receiver/amplifier
and speakers.
• Make sure all wires are
connected. Make sure
none of the speaker
wires are frayed, cut or
punctured.
• If more than one pair of
main speakers is being
used, check the minimum
impedance requirements
of your receiver/amplifier.
If there is no (or low) bass
output:
• Make sure the polarities
(+ and –) of the left and
right “Speaker Inputs” are
connected properly.
your system for use with
digital “.1” surround
formats.
If there is no sound from
the surround speakers:
• Check all wires and
connections between
receiver/amplifier and
speakers. Make sure all
wires are connected.
Make sure none of the
speaker wires are frayed,
cut or punctured.
• Review proper operation
of your receiver/amplifier
and its surround sound
features.
• Make sure the movie or
TV show you are watching
is recorded in a surround
sound mode. If it is not,
check to see if your
receiver/amplifier has
other surround modes you
may use.
• In Dolby Digital or DTS
mode, make sure your
receiver/processor is
configured so that the
surround speakers are
enabled.
• Review the operation of
your DVD player and the
jacket of your DVD to make
sure that the DVD features
the desired Dolby Digital or
DTS mode, and that you
have properly selected
that mode using both the
DVD player’s menu and the
DVD disc’s menu.
• Consider adding a
powered subwoofer to
