Introduction
Thank you for choosing the sub8 powered subwoofer. sub8 was designed to augment the bass
performance of your speakers in a stereo setup or in a home theater installation.
Adding a subwoofer to your system extends the bass response produced by your existing
speakers and improves their midrange clarity. In a home theater application, the subwoofer takes
care of reproducing signals from the low frequency channel. In a stereo system, the subwoofer
helps reduce the low-frequency demands on the main speakers.
We recommend you read all instructions carefully before using the sub8 and keep them for future
reference. Kanto cannot be liable for damage or injury caused by incorrect setup or use of this
product.
This powered subwoofer was carefully tested and inspected during production, and before
packaging and shipping. After unpacking, please check for any damage. It is rare that a unit is
damaged during shipping, but if this happens contact your retailer immediately. You can also
call Kanto directly at 1-888-848-2643 or email support@kantoaudio.com.

Setting up and Connecting your Subwoofer
Ensure that the ON/OFF Switch is in the OFF position before connecting any component.
To some degree, positioning the subwoofer is less critical because it produces only nondirectional low-frequency sounds. However, best results are obtained if the subwoofer is placed
either between the left and right speakers or in the vicinity of either the left channel or right
channel speaker.
As with all speakers, moving the sub8 very close to room boundaries will enhance the bass
frequencies but will tend to muddy the sound. Room characteristics and positioning have a
profound effect on the performance of the subwoofer, so time and effort devoted to achieving
the optimum operating position will be rewarded.
In a typical full range application using one subwoofer like the sub8 thru a single wire
connection, you can connect to either the Left or Right Line Level Input. Connect your stereo
component such as powered speakers with subwoofer output (e.g. YUMI, YU3, SYD6), power
or integrated amplifiers with preamplifier output (e.g. YARO), or multi-channel home theater
receivers with subwoofer output. If your components are equipped with both L/R subwoofer
outputs or L/R preamplifier outputs, we recommend connecting the component to the sub8 by
using both Left and Right Line Level Input channels.
The Low-Pass Filter Control is used to set the upper limit of the frequencies that sub8 will
reproduce, typically within the range of 40Hz-120Hz. Refer to your manufacturer’s information
for the cut-off frequency of your main speakers.
The Phase Switch is normally set to 0°. If the sub8 is positioned significantly farther from the
main speakers or if the subwoofer is used in a stereo setup where the amplifier driving the main
speakers inverts the phase signal, the 180° setting may be desirable. Listen with the switch in
both positions and select the setting that gives the fullest sound. If in doubt, or if there is little
difference, leave the switch set to 0°.
Follow the instructions on the following page to connect your components to sub8. The
examples are not meant to be exhaustive - just examples.
ATTENTION
When connecting audio cables the ON/OFF Switch must be turned OFF. After connecting all cables, the unit can be
turned ON.
