(we suggest moving the subwoofer close to it’s desired
location before removing peel coat from painted side panels).
NOTE: we suggest unboxing your new subwoofer on a carpeted floor
to avoid any damage. If you have a hard floor, you may use an area/throw rug, or towel.

STEP 3: Placement
Optional: cabinet may be rotated
90° to face side driver towards wall
Where you place your new subwoofer can have a dramatic
effect on the sound you hear. For optimal results we suggest
you experiment with placing the subwoofer in different
locations and repeat the same music track while listening
to hear which location provides the optimal sound quality
for your room & preferred listening position.
General Guidelines:
1) Corner placement typically provides the best bass output.
Choose the closest solid corner to your listening position
(not next to a doorway or opening) and place the sub
2”- 4” from the wall. The shaded areas in “Figure 1” to the
right indicate sub placement locations that typically
perform well.
2) The cabinet can be rotated to face the side driver either
towards the wall, or into the room. Try both and use the
position that sounds best in your installation.
3) Avoid locations far away from walls, near the center of
the room. The red ellipse indicates areas where you
should typically avoid placing the subwoofer.

STEP 4: Connection & Setup
This subwoofer is equipped with both consumer style
unbalanced RCA interconnects and professional audio
style balanced XLR interconnects. Select the appropriate
cable & connector type that matches your source
equipment. If your source equipment offers both,
we suggest using the balanced XLR inputs.
1) Connect XLR or RCA input signal cable to green dots
2) Set control knobs & switches to green dots for typical
surround sound receiver/processor connection
3) Connect power cord
4) Turn on other equipment (start at very low volume)
5) Turn on subwoofer main power switch
6) Enter the setup menu on your receiver/processor
and follow their instructions for calibrating channel
levels (SPL). Most offer built in calibration tones to
balance channel gain settings, either automatically
(using a microphone), or manually (by ear or using
a handheld SPL meter).
NOTE: the auto on/off signal sensing standby feature does not function when using the XLR
inputs. For proper operation when using the XLR input, set the auto on/off switch to “ALWAYS ON”.
