Danger Danger to children!
Children can become trapped in the packing
film when playing and suffocate.
• Do not allow children to play with the unit or the packing film. Danger of suffocation.
• Ensure that children do not remove small parts from
the unit or take them off of the unit (e.g. control knobs
or plug adapters). They could swallow the parts and
choke. Never allow children to use electrical devices
without supervision.
Danger Danger to hearing!
Loud noise may lead to hearing loss.
There is a potential risk of sudden very high
noise pressure especially when activating the subwoofer
which is set to full volume. This may have psychological
consequences and also cause physical injury. Children
and pets are particularly at risk.
• Set your signal source unit volume control to a low
setting.
• When the volume is set high, always keep a certain
distance from the unit and never place your ear directly
on the speaker.
• To avoid damage to health, avoid extended listening at
high volume.
Danger Danger of injury/damage!
Incorrect location may result in damage.
• Never use the unit unmounted in vehicles, in unstable
locations, on wobbly tripods or furniture, on underdimensioned brackets etc. The speakers could tip or fall
down and cause injury to persons or be damaged.
• Arrange the speakers so that they cannot be knocked
over accidentally and make sure that the cables do not
pose a trip hazard.
• Ensure that any wall mounting is performed in a professional manner.
• Only use suitable wall brackets for mounting. Check
the carrying capacity of the walls.
• Do not place the unit near sources of heat (e.g. heaters, ovens, other heat generating equipment such as
amplifiers etc.).
Attention Risk of damage!
Power overload due to lightning strike may
damage or destroy the unit.
• If the unit is to be left unsupervised for a long period
(e.g. during a holiday), or if a thunderstorm is forecast,
disconnect it from the mains power supply.
Attention Fire hazard!
Improper use may lead to damage or fire.
• Do not place open flames such as burning candles or
similar on the unit.
• Ensure sufficient ventilation.
• Do not place the unit in direct sunlight.
• Do not cover the ventilation slots with curtains, cloths,
newspapers or similar. Heat build-up inside the unit
can shorten the lifetime of the unit.
Check to be sure!
Check that all items have been delivered and
that nothing is damaged.
• If the delivery is incomplete or you find damage sustained in transit, do not operate the unit but contact our
service department (see page 3).
