10S
Quick Start Guide
Your new Speedwoofer 10S is the result of years of research and development. We don't stop until we
have reached a product that raises the bar and offers something new. The subwoofer you're about to
hear is an unprecedented combination of speed and precision, with more power than any subwoofer in
its class. In addition, your Speedwoofer 10S is also capable of playing wirelessly with the addition of our
optional wireless transmitter.

Steps To Bass Nirvana
1. Save all packing materials in the unlikely event your Speedwoofer needs servicing in the future.
2. Find the right place for your Speedwoofer. You’re looking for a location where the bass is evenly distributed throughout your seating positions. This is largely dependent on individual room characteristics,
so there is no standard placement location. We recommend some experimentation.
3. Connect your subwoofer to your A/V receiver or amplifier using an RCA cable. For home theater,
you'll run the cable from the receiver's subwoofer out to the Speedwoofer's LFE in. For stereo, use the
Line In inputs.
4. Run the auto-setup of your receiver (even if you've run it previously).
5. Refer to the diagram and our explanations to set the controls of the Speedwoofer for your particular
setup.

Features
Power Indicator - When the indicator light is red, the Speedwoofer is in stand by mode. When the
Speedwoofer receives a signal, it will turn on and the light will turn blue. If the light isn't on at all, then the
sub isn't receiving power. Re-check the power switch, AC power connection, and the windmill on your
roof.
Wireless Pairing Switch - To use your Speedwoofer wirelessly, you'll need to turn on the Speedwoofer
and the transmitter. If the transmitter shows a solid light, it is paired and ready. If the light on the transmitter is flashing, it requires pairing. To pair, simply press and release the pairing button on the back of
the Speedwoofer. This should change the light on the transmitter to solid. Keep in mind that wireless operation can be affected by distance, objects or interference from your home’s Wi-Fi network.
Volume - Controls the volume of bass output. During initial setup with your A/V receiver, we recommend
that you set volume control somewhere around the 12 o'clock position. That will allow maximum flexibility if you need to perform fine adjustments with the volume at a later time. If you find that you have to
turn the volume up too high or down to low, adjust the knob as needed or refer to the setup in your A/V
receiver to adjust the output level to the subwoofer.
Crossover Bypass - If using the Speedwoofer for home theater, you will want to bypass the Speedwoofer's crossover to use the crossover in your receiver instead. Simply flip the switch to "crossover bypass." In applications with an amplifier without an internal crossover (such as 2 channel), you need to use
the Speedwoofer's crossover by flipping the switch to "internal crossover". At that point you can adjust
the crossover frequency with the knob.
Crossover Frequency - Lets you choose the frequency that the subwoofer takes over bass reproduction.
An 80Hz setting means your Speedwoofer will handle all frequencies 80Hz and below. An 80Hz setting is
recommended for larger bookshelf speakers. For smaller bookshelf speakers, we recommend a setting of
90 - 100Hz.
Phase - Allows you to slightly delay the bass through subwoofer. This is to insure that the subwoofer
blends perfectly with the rest of the speakers. The bass should sound like it’s coming from your front
speakers instead of a separate subwoofer. The standard setting is 0 degrees, but some experimentation
may be needed.
Line In/LFE In - LFE stands for low frequency effects. This is where the Speedwoofer receives the bass
signal from your receiver or amplifier. For home theater, use a single RCA cable from the receiver's subwoofer or LFE out to the Speedwoofer's LFE in. For a 2 channel system, use a stereo pair of RCA cables to
the Speedwoofer's Line In inputs.
Line Out - For a 2 channel system, this feeds the signal back to the amplifier for your other speakers. The
Line Outs can also be used to connect an additional Speedwoofer. See the Dual Speedwoofer section.
In the case of 2 Speedwoofers, connect a stereo RCA cable from the first Speedwoofer’s Line Outs to the
second subwoofer’s Line Ins (this will also work even if your first Speedwoofer receives its signal wirelessly).
Speaker Level In - This connection can be used in stereo systems with amplifiers that do not have preamplifier outputs. In this case, you can hook one set of speaker wires to your Speedwoofer and another
set to your main speakers. Use the Speedwoofer’s internal crossover.
Input Voltage - Is Normally set for use in the U.S. and Canada at 115 Volts. If your country's AC voltage
is 230-240 Volts, you must change this setting before using the Speedwoofer. You must also change the
fuse to a 2.5 amp. See the back of the subwoofer. Unfortunately, failure to do this may void your
2
warranty.
Main Power Switch - This will normally be left on. When switched on, your Speedwoofer will go into
standby mode (red light) until it receives an audio signal. When the Speedwoofer receives a signal, the
lights will turn from red to blue. When the Speedwoofer stops receiving a signal, it will return to stand by
mode after a approximately 20 minutes.
When connecting and disconnecting cables to the Speedwoofer, make sure the main power switch is off.
AC Receptacle - Receives the power cord and AC power. This is where the fuse is stored.
Dual Speedwoofers
It’s easy to run 2 Speedwoofers. Simply connect a stereo RCA cable from the first Speedwoofer’s Line
Outs to the second Speedwoofer’s Line Ins. Now, both subwoofers will play when the first Speedwoofer
receives a signal. This method will work whether the first subwoofer is connected by cable or is used wirelessly.

Care And Maintenance
Caring for your RSL Speedwoofer is relatively easy and does not require much on your part. We have
listed the most important dos and don’ts below.
1. Clean your subwoofer using a soft, moist cloth (Windex or water is recommended), preferably
microfiber or lint-free. Do not put your subwoofer in the washing machine or dish washer.
2. Be very gentle when cleaning the front of your subwoofer, trying not to put pressure on the
woofer itself.
3. Be careful with liquids or beverages near your Speedwoofer. It does not play better when wet.
Don’t place flowers or plants that require watering on top of the subwoofer. Watering your Speedwoofer will not make it grow.
4. Please keep your Speedwoofer away from direct sunlight and heat sources.
5. If you operate the subwoofer with the grille off, please make sure that the woofer does not come
in contact with anything as it can be damaged.
6. Wires can loosen over time. Periodically check to make sure all connections to the Speedwoofer
are tight. If a wire loosens and touches other wires, your system could be damaged.
7. Do not expose your subwoofer to extremely hot or cold temperatures. As much as you may be
tempted, leave the Speedwoofer home during your trip to Antarctica.
8. Your Speedwoofer may not be used as a flotation device.
