• Use only speaker cables for connecting speakers to the speaker jacks. Use of
other types of cables may result in fire.
To avoid the possibility of malfunction/damage to the product or damage to other
property, follow the notices below.
● Handling and maintenance
• When using a high-impedance speaker connection, make sure the audio
signal is passed through an 80 Hz or above high-pass filter before being input
to the speakers.
• Do not expose the device to excessive dust or vibration, or extreme cold or
heat (such as in direct sunlight, near a heater, or in a car during the day), in
order to prevent the possibility of panel disfiguration, unstable operation, or
damage to the internal components.
• Do not place vinyl, plastic or rubber objects on the device, since this might
discolor the panel.
• When cleaning the device, use a dry and soft cloth. Do not use paint thinners,
solvents, cleaning fluids, or chemical-impregnated wiping cloths.
• Condensation can occur in the device due to rapid, drastic changes in
ambient temperature-when the device is moved from one location to another,
or air conditioning is turned on or off, for example. Using the device while
condensation is present can cause damage. If there is reason to believe that
condensation might have occurred, leave the device for several hours without
turning on power until the condensation has completely dried out.
• Be sure to observe the amplifier’s rated load impedance (see General
Specifications), particularly when connecting speakers in parallel. Connecting
an impedance load outside the amplifier’s rated range can damage the
• Protection Circuit
This speaker system has an internal protection circuit that shuts off the
speaker unit when an excessive input signal is applied.
If the speaker unit emits no sound, reduce the volume level of the amplifier
immediately. The sound will return automatically in several seconds.
• Air blowing out of the bass reflex ports is normal, and often occurs when the
speaker is handling program material with heavy bass content.
• Do not swing the speaker by its carrying band.
• Do not place the speaker face down with the grille attached, as deformation of
the grille may result.
• When placing the speaker face down, always place it on a flat surface.
• Do not touch the speaker driver unit.

Using Loop-Through Terminals
For this method, cables are connected from terminals 1 and 4 to the
subsequent speaker. Cables with a thickness up to AWG 12 can be used. If
the Euroblock plug is disconnected from a speaker, all subsequent speakers
will not work. This can be useful to identify which speaker has a problem.
