FEATURES
● This subwoofer system employs Advanced
YAMAHA Active Servo Technology which YAMAHA
has developed for reproducing higher quality
super-bass sound. (Refer to page 18 for details on
Advanced YAMAHA Active Servo Technology.) This
super-bass sound adds a more realistic, theater-inthe-home effect to your stereo system.
● This subwoofer can be easily added to your
existing audio system by connecting to either the
speaker terminals or the line output (pin jack)
terminals of the amplifier.
● For the effective use of the subwoofer, the
subwoofer’s super-bass sound should be matched
to the sounds of your main speakers. You can
create the best sound quality for various listening
conditions by using the HIGH CUT control and the
PHASE button.
● You can make setting changes and adjustments for
the subwoofer by using the remote control without
moving from your listening position.
● The Automatic power-switching function saves you
the trouble of pressing the STANDBY/ON button to
turn the power on and off.
● You can select bass effect suitable for the source
by using the B.A.S.S. button.
● The use of the H.P.F. OUTPUT terminals for
connecting with the amplifier is effective for
improving sound quality of your speaker system.
This connection prevents sound output from the
main speakers from muddying by filtering out low
frequencies of input signals to be sent to the main
speakers which are not suitable for reproducing
low frequencies.
QD-Bass Technology
QD-Bass (Quatre Dispersion Bass) technology uses
square, pyramid-shaped reflective plates to radiate the
sound in four horizontal directions.

PLACEMENT
Å
(
ı
: subwoofer,
Ç
: main speaker)
One subwoofer will have a good effect on your audio
system, however, the use of two subwoofers is
recommended to obtain more effect.
If using one subwoofer, it is recommended to place it on the
outside of either the right or the left main speaker. (See fig.
Å.) If using two subwoofers, it is recommended to place
them on the outside of each main speaker. (See fig. ı.) The
placement shown in fig. Ç is also possible, however, if the
subwoofer system is placed directly facing the wall, the
bass effect may die because the sound from it and the
sound reflected by the wall may cancel out each other. To
prevent this from happening, face the subwoofer system at
an angle as in fig. Å or ı.
Use the non-skid pads
Put the provided non-skid pads at the four corners on the
bottom of the subwoofer to prevent the subwoofer from
moving by vibrations etc.

Note
There may be a case that you cannot obtain enough superbass sounds from the subwoofer when listening in the
center of the room. This is because “standing waves” have
been developed between two parallel walls and they cancel
the bass sounds.
In such a case, face the subwoofer obliquely to the wall. It
also may be necessary to break up the parallel surfaces by
placing bookshelves etc. along the walls.

Notes
● Some amplifiers have line output terminals labelled PRE
OUT. When you connect the subwoofer to the PRE OUT
terminals of the amplifier, make sure that the amplifier
has at least two sets of PRE OUT terminals. If the
amplifier has only one set of PRE OUT terminals, do not
connect the subwoofer to the PRE OUT terminals.
Instead, connect the subwoofer to the speaker output
terminals of the amplifier. (Refer to pages 6 and 7.)
● When connecting to a monaural line output terminal of
the amplifier, connect the L/MONO INPUT2 terminal.
● When connecting to line output terminals of the amplifier,
other speakers should not be connected to the OUTPUT
terminals on the rear panel of the subwoofer. If
connected, they will not produce sound.

Connecting to H.P.F. OUTPUT terminals
The use of the H.P.F. OUTPUT terminals for connections with the amplifier will improve sound quality of your speaker system.
The H.P.F. (High-Pass Filter) OUTPUT terminals of the subwoofer cut off frequencies below the selected frequency point from
the input signals, and output high frequencies only. By connecting this terminal with the MAIN IN terminals of the amplifier, the
main speakers reproduce high frequencies only.
This will make the whole sound quality clear by preventing sound muddying between the main speakers and the subwoofer.
* This connection can be made if your amplifier has PRE OUT and MAIN IN terminals or you are using separate amplifiers
(pre-amplifier and main amplifier).

AUTOMATIC POWER-SWITCHING FUNCTION
If the source being played is stopped and the input signal is
cut off for 7 to 8 minutes, the subwoofer automatically
switches to the standby mode. (When the subwoofer
switches to the standby mode by the automatic powerswitching function, the power indicator lights up in red.)
When you play a source again, the power of the subwoofer
turns on automatically by sensing audio signals input to the
subwoofer.
This function operates by sensing a certain level of low
frequency input signal. Usually set the AUTO STANDBY
switch to the LOW position. However, if the power is not
switched to ON or STANDBY smoothly, set the switch to the
HIGH position. In the HIGH position, the power will turn on
even with a low level of input signal. But please be aware
that the subwoofer may not switch to the standby mode
when there is an extremely low input signal.
* The power might turn on unexpectedly by sensing noise
from other appliances. If that occurs, set the AUTO
STANDBY switch to the OFF position.
* This function detects the low-frequency components
below 200 Hz of the input signals (i.e., the explosion in
the action movie, the sound of the bass guitar or the bass
drum, etc.).
* The minutes required to switch the subwoofer to the
standby mode might change by sensing noise from other
appliances.
This function is available only when the power of the
subwoofer is on (by setting the STANDBY/ON button to
“ON”).
This function will not work if the subwoofer is turned
into the standby mode by using the STANDBY/ON
button. (The power indicator on the front panel goes
off.)

ADVANCED YAMAHA ACTIVE SERVO TECHNOLOGY
The theory of Yamaha Active Servo Technology has been
based upon two major factors, the Helmholtz resonator and
negative-impedance drive. Active Servo Processing
speakers reproduce the bass frequencies through an “air
woofer”, which is a port or opening in the speaker’s cabinet.
This opening is used instead of, and performs the functions
of, a woofer in a conventionally designed speaker system.
Thus, signals of low amplitude within the cabinet can,
according to the Helmholtz resonance theory, be outputted
from this opening as waves of great amplitude if the size of
the opening and the volume of the cabinet are in the correct
proportion to satisfy a certain ratio.
In order to accomplish this, moreover, the amplitudes within
the cabinet must be both precise and of sufficient power
because these amplitudes must overcome the “load”
presented by the air that exists within the cabinet.
Thus it is this problem that is resolved through the
employment of a new design in which the amplifier supplies
special signals. If the electrical resistance of the voice coil
could be reduced to zero, the movement of the speaker unit
would become linear with respect to signal voltage. To
accomplish this, a special negative-impedance output-drive
amplifier for subtracting output impedance of the amplifier is
used.
By employing negative-impedance drive circuits, the
amplifier is able to generate precise, low-amplitude, lowfrequency waves with superior damping characteristics.
These waves are then radiated from the cabinet opening as
high-amplitude signals. The system can, therefore, by
employing the negative-impedance output drive amplifier
and a speaker cabinet with the Helmholtz resonator,
reproduce an extremely wide range of frequencies with
amazing sound quality and less distortion.
The features described above, then, are combined to be the
fundamental structure of the conventional Yamaha Active
Servo Technology.
Our new Active Servo Technology — Advanced Yamaha
Active Servo Technology — adopted Advanced Negative
Impedance Converter (ANIC) circuits, which allows the
conventional negative impedance converter to dynamically
vary in order to select an optimum value for speaker
impedance variation. With this new ANIC circuits, Advanced
Yamaha Active Servo Technology can provide more stable
performance and improved sound pressure compared with
the conventional Yamaha Active Servo Technology, resulting
in more natural and dynamic bass reproduction.
