CHO7030 10in Powered Subwoofer CHO7031 12in Powered Subwoofer CHO7032 15in Powered Subwoofer INTRODUCTION Your CHOICE SELECT subwoofer delivers intense, deep bass sound output for pure, realistic sound. The subwoofer has a built-in amplifier, so it will perform with any sound system. The subwoofer's own crossover network sends bass-only signals to the subwoofer's built-in amplifier. Please follow the instructions in this booklet to attain the best performance from your system. Check your system carefully upon receipt. If it has been damaged in transit, report the damage immediately by calling your Choice Select dealer and/or the trucking firm that delivered it. Observe all warnings and cautions. WARNING To prevent fire or shock hazard, DO NOT EXPOSE this subwoofer system to rain or excessive moisture. It is recommended that you not operate your speakers or subwoofer with the bass, treble and loudness controls set to full boost. This will place undue strain on the electronics and speakers and could damage them. Whenever changing cables, pulling plugs, etc. ALWAYS TURN OFF ALL EQUIPMENT including the subwoofer. This prevents transients from entering the speakers and prevents electrical energy from reaching you. Keep all connections out of the reach of children. To avoid electrical shock, DO NOT OPEN THE SUBWOOFER! There are no user-serviceable parts inside. The lightning flash symbol within a triangle is intended to alert the user to the presence of uninsulated "dangerous voltage" within the product's enclosure that may be of sufficient magnitude to constitute a risk of electrical shock to persons. The exclamation point within a triangle is intended to alert the user to the presence of important operating and maintenance (servicing) instructions in the literature accompanying the product. PLACEMENT Your Choice Select subwoofer should be placed on the floor for optimum performance. The closer the subwoofer is placed to the wall, the more pronounced the bass will become. The maximum bass sound is achieved by placing the subwoofer in a corner. For optimum performance, keep all speaker wire and cables as short as possible. SUBWOOFER CONTROLS & CONNECTIONS POWER CORD: Plug the power cord into an AC wall outlet. POWER SWITCH: The power switch turns the AC supply completely off or sets the subwoofer to the AUTO ON operation. In AUTO ON mode, the subwoofer is in standby mode until it detects an audio signal input. The subwoofer then turns on automatically. The subwoofer will automatically return to standby mode a few minutes after the audio input signals cease. POWER INDICATOR LED: The subwoofer has 1 LED indicator. The "POWER" indicator is located on the amplifier on the rear of the cabinet. This LED is unlit when the AC power switch is OFF. It glows red when the subwoofer is in standby mode and green when the subwoofer is ON. FUSE 3.15 amp: This fuse is located directly above the AC power cord input and protects against internal and external faults. If the POWER switch is ON and the power indicator LED is unlit, unplug the power cord from the AC outlet and check the fuse. IMPORTANT: If the fuse is blown, replace it only with a fuse of the same type. L, R SPEAKER TERMINALS These terminals are for making connections using speaker wire. See Connection Option #1 L, R LINE IN and SUB IN Jacks: These jacks are for input connections using audio cables. See Connection Option #2 or Option #3 NOTE: USE ONLY ONE OPTION, #1, #2, OR #3 LOW PASS FREQUENCY CONTROL: This adjusts the upper frequency limit for audio signals going to the subwoofer amplifier. Use this control to adjust the system's tonal balance. LEVEL CONTROL: This control balances the loudness of the subwoofer in relation to the front speakers and compensates for room effects on the subwoofer's output. PHASE SWITCH: This control adjusts the phase of the subwoofer's output in relation to the front speakers. Listen carefully to the sound quality while playing a CD with low bass. Select the position of the switch that produces the fullest deep bass without too much "boom". You may need to readjust the "Level" and "Low Pass Frequency" controls after setting the "Phase" switch. CONNECTING YOUR SUBWOOFER IMPORTANT! When making connections, be sure that the power switches of ALL components, including the subwoofer are OFF. POLARITY: All speakers in a system must be connected with the same polarity. Speaker wire is marked for polarity, usually by color, so that you can identify which wire in the pair is which. Strip the insulation from speaker wire ends to reveal the bare conductors before connecting to receiver, subwoofer or speaker terminals. IMPORTANT: Always connect the red + terminal on the receiver to the red + terminal on the subwoofer, and the black - terminal on the receiver to the black - terminal on the subwoofer. The same is true for connecting the receiver outputs to the front speakers: red + to red +, black - to black -. CONNECTION OPTION #1: CONNECTION USING SPEAKER WIRE Connect speaker wires from the receiver's front left and right speaker outputs to the subwoofer's Left and Right SPEAKER IN terminals as well as the Left and Right front speakers. CONNECTION OPTION #2: CONNECTION USING AUDIO CABLES and LINE OUT If your receiver does not have a subwoofer or mono output jack, use a dual audio cable to connect a LINE OUT from the receiver to the subwoofer's LINE IN jack. No audio cables from the subwoofer's LINE OUT jacks are needed in this set-up. The illustration below shows the recommended hook-up. CONNECTION OPTION #3: CONNECTION USING AUDIO CABLES and SUB OUT If you have a Subwoofer output jack on your receiver, connect it to the subwoofer's SUB IN jack using a single audio cable. The illustration below shows the recommended hook-up. SUBWOOFER ADJUSTMENT AND OPERATION Subwoofer initial control settings • Set the LOW PASS FREQUENCY control to its center position. • Turn the LEVEL control fully counterclockwise to MIN. You will reset this control after you make other adjustments. Adjusting the Subwoofer controls • Play a program on your system. For the following adjustments, we recommend using the Dolby Surround mode if available. If not, play a music CD. Adjust the receiver's volume control so that a comfortable sound level is obtained from the system speakers. • Increase the subwoofer's LEVEL control setting clockwise, until the bass reaches the desired level. • Listen carefully to bass voices and, if necessary, adjust the LOW PASS FREQUENCY control so that the bass voices sound natural. • Adjust until the program has satisfying and natural sound quality on both bass voices and music. Setting the Phase Switch The PHASE switch controls the phase of the subwoofer's output in relation to the Front speakers. Listen carefully to the sound quality while toggling the switch between the two positions. The position that produces the fullest deep bass and the warmest bass and mid-bass sound is the correct one. TROUBLESHOOTING Subwoofer POWER indicator LED does not light, with Power Switch in the ON position • Check to see if the AC outlet that the subwoofer is plugged into is "live" using a tester or a plug-in lamp. • If the AC outlet is live, unplug the power cord from the AC outlet and check the fuse located directly above the AC power cord input. If the fuse is blown, replace the fuse only with a fuse of the same type and rating. If this does not fix the problem, take the subwoofer to your dealer for service. DO NOT TRY TO REMOVE THE COVER OF THE SUBWOOFER. THERE ARE NO USER-SERVICEABLE PARTS INSIDE. No sound from the subwoofer • First, ensure that there is sound coming from the front speakers and that the receiver is working properly. • Check the position of the LEVEL control on the subwoofer. If it is turned all the way counter-clockwise, there may be no sound. Adjust the control until proper sound is achieved. • The subwoofer only reproduces deep bass sound. If the program has no deep bass, the subwoofer will not make any sound. Play a program with plenty of bass, such as jazz or rock music, or an action movie. • If there still is no sound, take the subwoofer to you dealer for service. DO NOT TRY TO REMOVE THE COVER OF THE SUBWOOFER. THERE ARE NO USER-SERVICEABLE PARTS INSIDE.
