SPEAKER PLACEMENT
The Studio Series S36II and
S36AWII loudspeakers are videoshielded and can safely be
placed near a television.
The S36AWII loudspeakers are
weather-resistant and are
specifically designed for outdoor
use, such as in a patio area. As
noted below, we recommend
mounting the speakers under an
For stereo-only applications:
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.
overhang, such as roof eaves,
for added protection. The
S36AWII speakers, because they
are resistant to moisture, are
also appropriate for mounting in
a bathroom, although not inside
a bathtub or shower stall.
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.
A wider stereo image is
presented with the
tweeter/midrange array
outboard, and a tighter image is
presented with the array
inboard.
WALL-MOUNTING
toward the listener when
mounted flush against the wall.
When mounting the S36AWII
speakers outdoors, we
recommend that you place them
under an overhang, such as roof
eaves, for added protection, and
that you use two of the supplied
special angle-mount screws
per speaker, which angle the
speakers downward at a greaterthan-usual angle, facilitating
water drainage.
NOTE: When using the enclosed
angle-mount screws, always use
the top two screw locations
appropriate for the specific
mounting orientation of your
S36AWII. Referring to the
enclosed installation template,
screw locations (1) and (2) are to
be used when mounting the
S36AWII horizontally so that
these locations are on top. To
mount the loudspeakers
vertically, use locations (2) and
(4) or locations (1) and (3),
depending on the mounting
orientation. Do not mount the
S36AWII upside down (with
screw locations (3) and (4) on
Wall
Do not attempt to mount these
speakers on a ceiling, on the
underside of roof eaves or in a
shower stall.
The S36II and S36AWII loudspeakers may be positioned on
the wall either horizontally or
vertically. The grille logo on each
speaker may be rotated
depending on how the speaker is
positioned. Gently pull the logo
away from the grille slightly, rotate
it to the desired position, and let
go. The logo will snap back into
place.
When mounted vertically, the
tweeter array may be positioned
either up or down, depending on
the height of the placement. If the
speakers will be above ear level,
the tweeter array should be
positioned down, preferably no
more than two feet above ear
level. If the speakers will be
mounted very low, it may be best
to position the tweeter array
upward so that it will be no more
than two feet below ear level.
The S36II and S36AWII
enclosures are specially
designed to angle the speakers

Supplied Angle-Mount Screw
(When using angle-mount
screws, always utilize the
top two screw holes
on the S36AWII,
depending on
mounting orientation.)
Horizontal mounting:
Use screwholes (1) and (2).
Vertical mounting: Use
screwholes (1) and (3), or (2)
and (4), whichever are uppermost.

Proper placement of the
speakers is an important step in
obtaining the most realistic
soundstage possible. These
recommendations are for the
optimal placement of the
loudspeakers. Use these
placement recommendations as
a guide. Slight variations will not
diminish your listening pleasure.
top) because it won’t be able to
lock onto the screw heads.
Remember that the JBL logo on
the tweeter/mid faceplate can be
rotated with choice of speaker
position (vertical or horizontal).
At least one screw per speaker
should be installed in a wooden
wall stud. Select an appropriate
wall anchor for the other screw.
If the special angle-mount
screws are not being used, size
10 screws of at least 1-1/2" in
length are recommended. If the
screws are used in drywall or
other surfaces incapable of
holding the screw by itself,
selection of proper anchors is
essential. The customer is solely
responsible for proper selection
and installation of screws,
anchors and other installation
hardware. Further installation
details are included on the
installation template.
Installation of Self-Adhesive
Rubber Pads: If the speaker is to
be placed on a surface (such as
a table top or shelf) rather than
wall-mounted, the enclosed selfadhesive rubber pads are to be
attached to the bottom of the
speaker cabinet in their
designated recessed locations.
If the speaker is to be wallmounted, then the four selfadhesive rubber pads should be
attached to the back of the
speaker, as shown in the bottom
right diagram.
When angle-mounting the
S36AWII, only two of the rubber
pads are required, and they
need to be installed on the back
of the loudspeaker, near the
lower edge, so that they are
located between the S36AWII
back and the mounting surface.
Please see the enclosed
installation template for more
details.
NOTE: The threaded inserts on
the bottom of the speakers are
to be used only with JBL
accessories that have been
developed specifically for the
S36 and that may become
available at a future date.
Do not attempt to install bolts
or any non-JBL brackets or
accessories to these threads, as
this might damage the speaker
and dislodge the insert.

SPEAKER CONNECTIONS
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 the
advent of multichannel surround
sound systems, connecting all of
the speakers in your system
with the correct polarity remains
equally important in order to
preserve the proper ambience
and directionality of the program
material.
To use the binding-post speaker
terminals, unscrew the collar
until the pass-through hole in
the center post is visible under

the collar. Insert the bare end of
the wire through this hole; then
screw the collar down until the
connection is tight. The hole in
the center of each collar is
intended for use with bananatype connectors.
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.
• Make sure all wires are
connected. Make sure none
of the speaker wires are frayed,
cut or punctured.
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 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.
