windows, heat sources, sources of excessive vibration, dust,
moisture and cold. Avoid sources of humming (transformers,
motors). To prevent fire or electric shock, do not expose the
speakers to rain or water.
3
To prevent the enclosure from warping or discoloring, do not
place the speakers where they will be exposed to direct
sunlight or excessive humidity.
4
Avoid installing the speakers where foreign objects may fall
onto them and/or where they may be exposed to liquid
dripping or splashing.
5
Do not place the following objects on top of the speakers:
– Other components, as they might cause damage and/or
discoloration on the surface of the speakers.
– Burning objects (i.e. candles), as they might cause fire,
damage to the speakers and/or personal injury.
– Containers with liquid in them, as they might cause
electric shock to the user and/or damage to the speakers.
6
Do not place the speakers where they are liable to be knocked
over or struck by falling objects. Stable placement will also
ensure better sound performance.
7
Placing the speakers on the same shelf or rack as the
turntable can result in feedback.
8
Secure placement or installation is the owner’s responsibility.
YAMAHA shall not be liable for any accident caused by
improper placement or installation of speakers.
9
Any time you note distortion, reduce the volume control on
your amplifier to a lower setting. Never allow your amplifier
to be driven into “clipping”. Otherwise the speakers may be
damaged.
10 When using an amplifier with a rated output power higher
than the nominal input power of the speakers, care should be
taken never to exceed the maximum input of the speakers.
11 Do not attempt to clean the speakers with chemical solvents
as this might damage the finish. Use a clean, dry cloth.
12 Do not attempt to modify or fix the speakers. Contact
qualified YAMAHA service personnel when any service is
needed. The cabinet should never be opened for any reason.
13 Be sure to read the “TROUBLESHOOTING” section
regarding common operating errors before concluding that
the speakers are faulty.
This unit features a magnetically shielded design, but there is
still a chance that placing it too close to a TV set might impair
picture color. Should this happen, move this unit away from
the TV set.
For SW-P440
1
Do not operate this unit upside down. It may overheat,
possibly causing damage.
2
Do not use excessive force on switches, controls or
connection wires. When moving this unit, first disconnect the
power plug and the wires connected to other equipment.
Never pull the wires themselves.
3
Since this unit has a built-in power amplifier, heat will radiate
iii
from the rear panel. Place the unit apart from the walls,
allowing spaces of at least 20 cm above, behind and on both
sides of the unit to prevent fire or damage. Furthermore, do
not position with the rear panel facing down on the floor or
other surfaces.
4
When using a humidifier, be sure to avoid condensation
inside this unit by allowing enough spaces around this unit or
avoiding excess humidification. Condensation might cause a
fire, damage to this unit, and/or electric shock.
5
Do not cover the rear panel of this unit with a newspaper, a
tablecloth, a curtain, etc. in order not to obstruct heat
radiation. If the temperature inside this unit rises, it may

6
Do not plug in this unit to a wall outlet until all connections
are completed.
7
The voltage to be used must be the same as that specified on
the rear panel. Using this unit with a higher voltage than
specified is dangerous and may cause fire, damage to this
unit, and/or personal injury. YAMAHA will not be held
responsible for any damage resulting from use of this unit
with a voltage other than specified.
8
Super-bass sound reproduced by this unit may cause a
turntable to generate a howling sound. In such a case, move
this unit away from the turntable.
9
This unit may be damaged if certain sounds are continuously
outputted at high volume level. For example, if 20 Hz–50 Hz
sine waves from a test disc, bass sounds from electronic
instruments, etc. are continuously outputted, or when the
stylus of a turntable touches the surface of a disc, reduce the
volume level to prevent this unit from being damaged.
10 If you hear distorted noise (i.e. unnatural, intermittent
“rapping” or “hammering” sounds) coming from this unit,
reduce the volume level. Extremely loud playing of a movie
soundtrack’s low frequency, bass-heavy sounds or similarly
loud popular music passages can damage this unit.
11 Vibration generated by super-bass sound may distort images
on a TV. In such a case, move this unit away from the TV set.
12 When disconnecting the power cord from the wall outlet,
grasp the plug; do not pull the cord.
13 When not planning to use this unit for a long period (i.e.
vacation, etc.), disconnect the AC power plug from the wall
outlet.

It is recommended to place the subwoofer on the outside
of either the right or the left front speaker (figure A). The
placement shown in figure B is also possible, however, if
the subwoofer is placed directly facing the wall, the bass
sound may lessen because the sound from the subwoofer
and the sound reflected by the wall may cancel out each
other. To prevent this from happening, face the subwoofer
obliquely to the wall.

audio system by using the volume control of the amplifier/
receiver.
However, if you change the speakers or the system configuration,
you must make this adjustment again.
USING THE SUBWOOFER (SW-P440)
Advanced Yamaha Active Servo
Technology II
QD-BASS TECHNOLOGY
In 1988, Yamaha brought to the speaker systems utilizing
YST (Yamaha Active Servo Technology) to give powerful,
high quality bass reproduction. This technology uses a
direct connection between the amplifier and speaker,
allowing accurate signal transmission and precise speaker
control.
As this technology uses speaker units controlled by the
negative impedance drive of the amplifier and resonance
generated between the cabinet capacity volume and port, it
creates more resonant energy (the “air woofer” concept)
than the standard bass reflex method. This allows for bass
reproduction from much smaller cabinets than was
previously possible.
Yamaha’s newly developed Advanced YST II adds many
refinements to Yamaha Active Servo Technology,
allowing better control of the forces driving the amplifier
and speaker. From the amplifier’s point of view, the
speaker impedance changes depending on the sound
frequency. Yamaha developed a new circuit design
combining negative-impedance and constant-current
drives, which provides a more stable performance and
clear bass reproduction without any murkiness.
QD-BASS (Quatre Dispersion Bass) technology uses
down-firing drivers with square, pyramid-shaped
reflective plates to radiate the sound efficiently in four
horizontal directions. The reflective plates (not used in
competitors' down-firing subwoofers) negate any effects
caused by the floor surface and reduce resonance between
sound waves reflected from the floor and the unit. Also,
most other systems use circular cones, but by radiating in
four directions to avoid the legs of the cabinet, QD-BASS
reduces turbulence caused by reflection from the legs.
Changing the height of the square pyramid varies the
acoustic load, permitting relatively simple high-cut
adjustment and improved band pass properties.
The QD-BASS system provides extraordinary power and
smooth frequency response from an extremely compact
unit. It also allows greater freedom of placement, since the
sound radiates with equal effectiveness in all directions.
