The LCR8 should be placed directly above or below the TV. The Revel® Concerta™ LCR8 loudspeaker is actually three discrete speakers built into a single enclosure. The LCR8 incorporates the front left, center and right channels of a home theater system. Simply add a Revel powered subwoofer and satellite speakers for the surround channels to complete a high-performance home entertainment loudspeaker system. The horizontal design allows for maximum placement flexibility. Please read this owner’s manual completely before connecting and operating the LCR8 all-in-one left, center, right loudspeaker. Optimum performance is dependent upon following these instructions, as well as those in the owner’s manuals of associated components in your home theater system. Save these instructions for future reference. Unpacking the Speaker LCR8 (above or below video screen) Revel Subwoofer (not included) Listening Position Left Surround Channel (not included) Right Surround Channel (not included) Finish unpacking the loudspeaker and check the contents. If you suspect damage from transit, report it immediately to your dealer. Keep the shipping carton and packing materials for future use. Figure 1: In this overhead view of a typical installation, the LCR8 is used to reproduce the front channels, and satellite loudspeakers are used to reproduce sound for the surround channels. The powered subwoofer reproduces low frequencies. Contents Placement Please verify that the package contains the following items: Speaker bracket (1) LCR8 loudspeaker Part A Part B (2) Wall-mount end caps (attached to the LCR8) (1) Speaker base (1) Allen wrench Speaker base (1) Wall bracket with wall bracket cover Note: The Revel Concerta LCR8 is ideally suited for use with a subwoofer. Contact your Revel dealer for recommendations on subwoofer models for your application. Figure 2: This example shows the LCR8 mounted on its bracket above a television and, alternatively, placed on its base below the television and tilted up (see Figure 3). Note: If placing the LCR8 on top of a television, be sure the top of the television has a flat surface large enough to accommodate the speaker base. Do not set the speaker on top of any surface without using the included base. 3 HSGP1054-LCR8_OM 9/12/08 12:42 PM Page 4 Tilting the Speaker If needed, the enclosed stand allows you to tilt the speaker across a wide range (i.e., upward to a maximum of 18° or downward to a maximum of 7°), as shown in Figure 3. Important! Do not exceed the tilt range. Doing so may cause the speaker to fall out of its stand. Wall-Mounting the LCR8 Using the Included Wall Bracket Step One Remove the wall bracket cover by removing the four wall-bracket screws on the ends, as shown. Step Two Run the speaker wire for the left, center and right channels behind the wall bracket and out through the holes in the bracket. After deciding where to place the speaker, attach the wall bracket (in a horizontal position) to the wall, using the appropriate screws and anchors. Wall bracket Figure 3 Mounting screws and anchors not included Step Three Run the speaker wires out through the holes in the wall bracket cover. Resecure in place, as shown, with the four wall bracket screws. 4 HSGP1054-LCR8_OM 9/12/08 12:42 PM Page 5 Step Four Step Six Using the included Allen wrench, remove the top and bottom end caps of the speaker by unscrewing the single center screw on bottom. The wall-bracket design allows for rotation of the speakers at angles of up to 30º of center. Position the speakers so that they face toward the primary listening position, before fully tightening. End cap End cap 1/4-20 x 3/4" Screw Step Five Connect the wires (see page 6). Replace the end caps while capturing the wall bracket between parts A and B of the end cap, securing it in place. Wall-mount end cap B Wall-mount end cap A 5 HSGP1054-LCR8_OM 9/12/08 12:42 PM Page 6 Wiring the Speaker After placing the speaker, you are ready to connect it to your system. First, turn off all audio system power. Use high-quality speaker wire to make the connections. Consult the owner’s manuals included with your amplifier or receiver for connection and operation procedureÏs. One channe Surround Modes When using the system in a Dolby® Digital or DTS® home theater system, make sure the receiver or processor is set to “Small” for the front left, center, and front right loudspeakers. When using the LCR8 in a Dolby Pro Logic® home theater system, make sure the receiver’s center channel mode is set to “Normal.” Some receivers/processors offer a choice of crossover frequencies. Select 110Hz as the crossover frequency for the front left, center, and front right loudspeakers. Some Dolby Digital-equipped receivers/processors offer different setup options for each source or surround mode, e.g., CD-stereo, DVD, Dolby, Pro Logic. In each case, follow your equipment’s instructions to ensure that the subwoofer output is turned on and that the speakers are set to “Small” or to a crossover frequency of 110Hz in each mode. Wiring and Polarity The LCR8 speaker has gold-plated terminals that can accept bare wire.To ensure proper polarity, connect each + terminal on the back of the amplifier or receiver to the respective + (red) terminal on each speaker, as shown in Figure 4. Connect the – (black) terminals in a similar way. See the owner’s manuals that were included with your amplifier or receiver to confirm connection procedures. Be sure to connect the left-channel wires to the leftmost terminals, the center-channel wires to the middle terminals, and the right-channel wires to the rightmost terminals. Important! DO NOT reverse polarities (+ to – or – to +) when making connections. Doing so will degrade the imaging and bass response of the home theater system. After correctly placing and wiring the LCR8 speaker and the rest of your loudspeakers, adjust the levels for all of the channels as recommended by the manufacturer of your receiver/processor. 6 – + Figure 4: This example shows how to connect bare wires to the terminals. Banana plugs may also be inserted directly into the rear of the connector. 1. Loosen the terminals. 2. Inset bare ends; tighten terminals. Maintenance and Service When needed, use a soft cloth to remove any fingerprints or to wipe off dust. Do not use any cleaning products or polish. Clean the grille by gentle vacuuming. If your LCR8 loudspeaker should ever need service, please contact your local dealer or distributor, or visit www.revelspeakers.com for the location of a service center.
