A FEW SUGGESTIONS
We recommend
that you not operate your speakers or
subwoofer with the bass, treble and loudness controls set to
full boost. This will place undue
strain on your electronics
and
speakers and could damage them.
The volume control setting on your preamplifier or stereo
receiver is not a specific indication of the overall loudness level
of the speakers. The only important
consideration
is the
loudness level at which the system can be played regardless of
where the volume control is set.
Always turn down the volume control setting on your
preamplifier
or stereo when changing a cassette or CD, or
switching inputs to AM or FM operation. Excessively loud
transients (clicks or popping sounds) can damage the satellite
speakers and possibly the subwoofer.
Whenever changing cables, pulling plugs, etc., ALWAYS
TURN OFF ALL EQUIPMENT
including the Subwoofer.
This prevents
transients
from entering
the speakers and
prevents
electrical
energy from reaching
you. Keep all
connections out of the reach of children.
ABOUTTHIS PRODUCT
The Infinity BU-2 Powered Subwoofer has been designed to
enhance the bass frequencies
of any audio system. This
subwoofer may be used with speakers of any size. Obviously,
the greatest bass enhancement
will be achieved when the
subwoofer is connected with speakers which do not have the
capability to create deep bass. This subwoofer may be used
individually, or combined with another BU-2 for even more
impressive reproduction of bass frequencies (i.e., one subwoofer

POSITIONING
Since the installation of a subwoofer is somewhat more
complicated than installing full range speakers, k is essential
you .read this section very carefully prior to connecting the
subwoofer to your system. Should you have questions relating
to your installation, it is advisable to call either your dealer or
Infinity's Customer Service Department for advice.
The performance of the subwoofer is directly related to its
placement in the listening room and how you align the
subwoofer with.its satellite speakers. Setting the volume of the
subw0ofer in relationship to the left and right speakers is also
of critical importance because it is essential that the subwoofer
integrates smoothly with the entire system. Setting the
subwoofer's
volume level too high will result in an
overpowering, boomy bass. Setting the volume level too low
will negate the effect of the subwoofer.
The metal plate acts as the heat sink for the subwoofer's
internal amplifier. Do not place pillows or other objects
against it.
We recommend placing the BU-2 at least. 2 to 3 feet away
from a television or a computer's disc drive system to prevent
smearing the colors of the TV picture or erasure of the
magnetic drive.
Here are several additional facts on installation which may
prove useful. It is generally believed by most audio authorities
that low frequencies (below 125 Hz) are non-directional and,
therefore, placement of a subwoofer within any listening room
is not critical. While in theory it is true that extremely low
frequencies because of their larger wave lengths are basically
non-directional, the fact is when installing a subwoofer within
the limited confines of a room, reflections, standing waves and
absorptions generated within the room will strongly influence
the performance of any subwoofer system. As a result, specific
location of the subwogfer becomes important, and we strongly
recommend that you experiment with room placement before
choosing a final location.
Placement will depend upon your room and the amount
and quality of bass required. For example, if your room
permits placement of the subwoofer near either satellite.
Never place the port too close to a wall or piece of furniture, as
this will prevent the port from operating properly. Since the
port is an integral part of the subwoofer's design, it should
always be permitted free access to the listening room without
obstruction
to the pressure emerging from it. Careful
experimentation will enable you to determine the best position
for the subwoofer.
Here are some useful hints:
1. Experimentation with the port direction may be useful. Ax-'times directing the port away from the listening area (to the
side) may be advantageous because this may create a better
blend of bass within the listening room.
2. If bass response seems inadequate, move it closer to a wall
or corner. If bass becomes too heavy, try turning the"
subwoofer with the port facing away from the wall. This will
tend to diminish bass output.
It will take time and patience to find the most pleasing
acoustic location for your subwoofer. Testing for sonic balance
and blending should always be made for your normal listening
position using a wide range of source material. As a starting
point, initially place the subwoofer behind your right channel
satellite speaker, about 3 or 4 inches from the wall (We
suggest trying this location first because in an orchestra, the
bass instruments are usually located in the back and to the
right.) R_er to Figure 1.

receiver or amplifier is not possible, connect your subwoofer to
an unswitched ac wall ot_tlet.
When the Auto Power switch is set to ON (and AC Power
is also ON), the BU-2's auto-sensing circuit will automatically
turn the subwoofer on when music or voice signals are
detected. When audio is absent, the BU-2 will stay in the "on"
mode (as indicated by a green LED) for approximately
8 minutes before the auto-sensing circuit shuts down the
system (as indicated by a red LED). To defeat this feature, set
Auto Power to OFF and use the AC Power switch to turn
on/off the BU-2.

no sound emanates from the subwoofer after the auto-sensing
system turns it on (i.e., LED goes from red to green), check
the ac line cord and input cables. Are the connectors on the
cables making proper contact? Is the ac plug connected to a
"live" receptacle? Once you have confirmed that the subwoofer
is active, proceed by playing a CD, record, or cassette. Use a
selection that has ample bass information.
7. Set the overall volume control of the preamplifier orstereo

Many
users
have
a tendency
to set the
subwoofer
volume
too loud following
the belief that a
subwoofer is there to produce lots of bass. This is not entirely
true. A subwoofer is there to enhance bass, extending
the
response of the entire system so the bass can be felt as well as
heard.
However,
overall balance
must be maintained;
otherwise, the music will not sound natural. An experienced
listener will set the volume of the subwoofer so its irfipact on
bass response is always there but is never obtrusive.
8.
The Frequency
control
(_ (Fig. 2) sets the high frequency
roll-off, adjustable from 50 to 200 Hz. Where you set this
control depends on the low frequency
capabilities
of your
satellite speakers, system placement, and other factors affecting
the mid-bass region. Turn the control UP (clockwise) until
you feel there is too much" mid-bass information
(around
100Hz) then back the control down a bit until that area
sounds more natural. To hear more low bass, turn the
Frequency control DOWN a bit and the Volume control UP
by about the same amount. This will increase low bass while
leaving the mid-bass sounding the same as it did before the
adjustment. To reduce low bass without changing mid-bass,
turn the Frequency control UP and the Volume control
DOWN. Alternately slide the Phase switch between "NOM'
and "REV" positions while listening to music. The selection
that sounds the best is the correct adjustment for your system.
9.
In general, the closer the subwoofer
is to walls anticorners, the greater the effect of low frequency enhancement.
Room placement
of the subwoofer is the most critical
aspect of its installation.
It will be necessary for you to try
various locations in your listening room before you choose the

application.
A WORDO.EADVICE
If the subwoofer is located so far from the listening area that
its effect is not as prominent as desired, try reversing the audio
signal polarity by sliding the Phase switch from NOM to REV.
The lo_ Frequency rolloff and Volume controls may be set
anywhere within their rotation. However, it will be a most
unusual circumstance
if you have to set the Volume control
completely

This may indicate an unbalanced
condition in your system (too much bass) or an especially large
room, or room placement
may not be correct. Try several
other locations before concluding
that the Volume control
must be set at maximum.
OVERDRIVEPROTECTION

limiting circuitry helps prevent overdriving a
connected subwoofer by softly clipping the input signal if it
exceeds a predetermined
threshold. Depending
on the level,

may be too high and should be lowered. If this doesn't solve
