TKUSP21 Multimedia Speakers with Powered Subwoofer
WALL MOUNTING THE SATELLITE SPEAKERS
The satellite loudspeakers have integral keyhole slots for wall mounting.
Wall mount the speakers when there is insufficient room on the computer
desk or if here is a significant possibility that they may be knocked over.
Wall fixings are not supplied. You will need two suitable No.6 screws and
wall plugs to suit your wall, if necessary.
Ensure the wall is structurally sound and smooth and can support the weight
of the loudspeaker plus a certain amount of pulling force.
Make sure that the wall is free from hidden
obstacles such as cables, water and gas pipes,
etc. in the area you propose to mount the
speakers.
Drill and plug the wall as necessary
Insert a No.6 screw into the wall leaving about
7mm of screw standing proud from the wall.
Make sure the screw is firmly fixed.
Connect the satellite speaker as
previously described but do not
connect the loudspeaker to the
subwoofer.
Line up the bottom of the keyhole
slot with the screw head.
Push the speaker over the screw
head and gently pull down to
secure the speaker.
Now connect the satellite
speaker to the subwoofer.
Caution: If you are unsure about
your ability to carry out this
procedure, consult a suitably
qualified builder or house
electrician.

Although the loudspeaker grilles are removable we suggest they be left on to
protect the loudspeaker units. Never touch the loudspeaker cones as they
are easily damaged.
In use, especially after extended use the rear panel of the subwoofer may
become warm. This is normal and not a cause for anxiety, however, you
should always operate the subwoofer well away from sensitive surfaces.
Always ensure that the loudspeaker has plenty of ventilation and do not
operate it in a confined space.

The TKUSP21 consists of
! One Powered Subwoofer
! Two Satellite loudspeakers
! One 3.5mm-2 RCA Phono interconnect -for connecting the unit to a PC or
any audio equipment having a 3.5 mm line or headphone output.
! Two lengths of loudspeaker connecting wire.
After unpacking, check the units carefully. If there is any item missing or
damaged please return the unit for attention to your supplying Tesco store, or in
case of difficulty to your nearest Tesco store. Please have your receipt with you
when you call.
Retain the packing. If you decide to dispose of the packing, do so with full
regards to any recycling provisions in your area.
PLACEMENT
The loudspeaker magnets are screened so they may be placed close to a TV or
computer monitor without harm.
Place the subwoofer on the floor. Make sure the floor is firm and level without
any loose floorboards, etc.
One side of the subwoofer is ported. All the bass comes from the port when the
system is playing so do not place this side close to soft furniture or objects that
are likely to rattle. Do not insert any object into the port!
Ensure there is enough space to enable easy access to all the controls.
The satellite speaker cables are about 3 metres long. The satellites should be
placed around two metres apart and about 1.5 metres above the floor, central to
the listening seat. If you are using the system to listen to stereo from a CD player,
etc., the listening seat should be equidistant to the speakers.
Avoid running cables across exposed areas of floor where they can be a
source of danger to children and pets. Route them around room boundaries.
If necessary, use extension cables.
Release
Subwoofer Loudspeaker Terminals

Input Connections
Identify the Signal Input Cable. Plug the Green jack plug into the line output of
the sound card on your computer. Many computers have the matching sound
card socket colour coded green. You may also see the symbol shown at the right
of the drawing to help you.
Plug the White RCA phono plug into the White (L) Line input socket on the
Subwoofer. Plug the Red RCA phono plug into the corresponding Red (R) Line
input socket.
Loudspeaker Connections (Refer to the diagrams at the top of this page)
Connect the Left satellite loudspeaker to the Left Speaker
output of the Subwoofer. Make sure that the Red, Positive (+)
terminal of the loudspeaker connects to the Red, Positive, (+)
terminal of the amplifier.
Now connect the Black, Negative (–) terminal of the loudspeaker to the Black, Negative (–) terminal of the Subwoofer.
Right Left
Connect the Right satellite loudspeaker to the Right Speaker output of the
Subwoofer following the same procedure. Make sure that there are no loose
strands of bare wire which could touch adjacent terminals.
The supplied loudspeaker cable is polarised. There is a plain copper conductor
and a tinned copper conductor. Use the tinned copper conductor to connect to
the Red, Positive terminals in all cases. This will assist you to connect the
loudspeakers correctly and in phase.
OPERATION
PC Volume
Ensure the ON/ OFF switch on the Subwooofer is off.
Turn the Subwoofer Volume Control fully anticlockwise
(minimum).
! Set the Subwoofer Treble and Bass controls to half way.
! Plug the subwoofer and the PC into the mains
! Switch the mains on.
! Switch the PC on and set the volume to halfway.
! Now set the subwoofer ON/OFF switch to ON.
! The yellow power light on the subwoofer will glow.
! Turn up the Subwoofer Volume Control until the desired volume level is
reached. If you need, you can increase the Volume level at the PC.
Volume: In use the volume level can be controlled either at the PC or the
Subwoofer. It is perhaps more convenient to set the levels on the Subwoofer
panel and then control the volume from the PC.
Balance: Adjust the balance from the main Volume Control panel on the PC.
Treble Control: This control affects the satellites only. Set this to personal taste.
The higher the level the more intrusive will recorded hiss and sibilance become.
Sub Bass Control: This control increases the volume of the subwoofer relative
to the satellites. Avoid setting this control too high as you will swamp the sound
with excessive bass. Extremely high settings may also overload the subwoofer.
If you hear popping or thumping from the subwoofer: Turn the volume down
immediately and reduce the Sub Bass level. Set more sensible levels.
CAUTION: Excessive levels of sound can damage your equipment and your
hearing as well as being unpleasant for others.
! Switch the Subwoofer ON/OFF switch to OFF after use.
