CONSUMER PRECAUTIONS
Read these precautions carefully before operating your NS-AP8600 speakers.
Since these speakers can be wall mounted, it is essential that they are firmly secured. Be sure to consult a
reliable source about the best type of hanger for your particular wall’s construction. Secure installation is the
purchaser’s responsibility.
Do not attach them to thin plywood or soft wall surface materials as the screws may tear free, causing the
speakers to fall and be damaged, or result in personal injury.
Do not fasten the speakers to walls with nails, adhesives, or other unsafe hardware. Long-term use and
vibrations may cause them to pull free.
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.
Placing the speakers on the same stand or shelf as a turntable can result in feedback.
This speaker 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 the speaker away from the TV set.
Never touch the woofer or tweeter units with your hands or expose them to excessive physical shock. If they
are dented or bent, the sound will be distorted.
Lower the power amplifier / receiver volume control before changing input sources. Never change input
sources (for example, FM to CD) at high listening levels. Always turn the receiver / amplifier unit off when
installing or removing input cables.
Anytime you note distortion, reduce the volume control on your power amplifier / receiver to a lower setting.
Never allow your power amplifier to be driven into “clipping”.
Do not attempt to clean the speakers with chemical solvents as this might damage the finish. To clean wipe
with a dry, soft cloth.
To prevent the enclosure from warping or discoloring, do not place the speakers where they will be exposed to
direct sunlight or excessive humidity.
This speaker stand is only for use with NS-AP8500S speakers. Do not use with other speaker models.
To prevent the speaker from falling, use the screws and parts provided with the stand.
To prevent the speaker stand from falling over, select a location which is flat and stable.
To avoid accidents resulting from tripping over loose speaker cables and to prevent the speaker stand from
falling over, fix the speaker cables to the wall, etc.
Do not let the children lean on the stand as this might cause the serious accidents resulting from the falling
over of the speaker stand.
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.

Wall mounting for the satellite speakers
Wall / wall support
A screw with a diameter of
1/4” can be used
(Hole depth: 9/32”)
145 mm (5-3/4”)
66 mm (2-5/8")
You can also use the screw
holes on the back of the
speaker for installing the
speakers on commercially
available speaker brackets.
Min
7/8”
7/32”
Tapping screw
(Available at the hardware store)
When using speaker brackets to mount the speakers
on a wall or celling, it is strongly recommended that
safety wire, which may be included with the bracket, be
used between the speaker and the bracket to prevent
the speaker from falling.
Fasten screws into a firm wall or wall support as shown in the figure, and hang the holes of the mounting
bracket on the protruding screws.
Make sure that the screws are securely caught by the narrow sections of the “key hole” opening.
WARNING
Each speaker weigh 2.6 lbs (1.2 kg). Do not mount the speakers on thin plywood or wall with soft surface
material, since the screws may pull away from the surface and fall. This will damage the speakers and can
cause personal injury.
Do not install the speakers to a wall with nails, adhesives, or any other unstable hardware. Long-term use
and vibrations may cause them to fall.
To avoid accidents resulting from tripping over loose speaker cords, they should be affixed to the wall or floor
molding.
Secure installation is the purchaser's responsibility.

Mounting the center speaker
Place the center speaker on top of the TV, on the floor in front of the TV or inside the TV rack so that it is stable.
When placing the speaker on top of the TV, put the provided fasteners at two points on both the bottom of the
speaker and on top of the TV to prevent the speaker from falling.

Notes
Do not place the speaker on top of the TV whose area is smaller than the bottom area of the speaker. The
speaker may fall and might cause personal injury.
Though this speaker is a magnetically shielded type, there may be some influence on a TV picture depending
on the type of TV or the placement of the speaker. In such a case, place the speaker apart from TV so that
there is no influence on TV picture.

CONNECTIONS TO THE RECEIVER
CONNECTIONS
Check to make sure that the power has been turned off before making connections.
Connect the (+) terminal of the amplifier to the (+) terminal of the speaker.
Connect the (–) terminal of the amplifier to the (–) terminal of the speaker.
Reversing polarity (+/–) will result in unnatural sound reproduction.
PROCEDURE
For connections, keep the speaker cords as short as possible. Do not bundle or roll up the excess part of the
cords. If the connections are faulty, no sound will be heard from the speakers. Make sure that the + and – polarity
markings of the speaker cords are observed and set correctly. If these cords are reversed, the sound will be
unnatural and lack bass.
How to Connect:
1 Press and hold the terminal’s tab.
2 Insert the bare wire and properly in the terminal hole.
[Remove approx. 10 mm (3/8”) insulation from the speaker cords.]
Good
10 mm
No Good
Make sure the lead portions of
the speaker cable are not
exposed outside of the
connectors.
3 Release your finger from the tab to allow it to lock securely on the cord’s wire end.
4 Test the firmness of the connection by pulling lightly on the cord at the terminal.
Note
Do not let the bare speaker wires touch each other as this could damage the speaker or the amplifier, or both
of them.

SPEAKER PLACEMENT
This speaker is designed to be used as a front, center, surround or effects speaker.
— Front speaker placement should be separated by a distance of 6–10ft. If they are placed too close together,
there will be a reduction in the stereo effect. Conversely, If placed too for apart, the so called “middleomission” effect will occur and the vocal center fill will be lost. Height of the speaker should be at least at ear
level.
— Center channel speakers should be placed centered above or below the TV.
— Surround speakers should ideally be placed behind the listening area, at least as far apart as the front
speakers and up to 2 additional feet apart per side. The height of the speaker should be at a minimum of ear
level or preferably somewhat higher.
