and Recommendations
What’s Included
Required Tools/Items
•What’s included
•Speakers (AS4SAT) with
mounting stakes (x4)
•8” Subwoofer (AS8SUB)
•Wire nuts (x10)
•Direct burial wire
•Wire cutters
•Wire stripper
•Shovel
•Philip’s head and flat head
screwdrivers
This set includes 4 AS4SAT speakers, however the system is designed to support up to 8 speakers from a single 2ch amplifier or
receiver. If additional speakers are needed, we recommend purchasing one or two AS4SAT Expansion Packs, which contain an
additional pair of speakers.
Speaker Wire Recommendations
For this setup, use a direct burial,
multi-stranded wire designed for
amplifier to speaker connections.
This manual covers a setup that uses
a 2-conductor wire, however a 4-conductor wire can also be used. Refer
to this chart to select the minimum
wire gauge -- heavier gauge wire is
always OK.

Planning
The Acoustic Landscape™ speakers and subwoofer should be strategically placed to evenly distribute sound throughout the outdoor area. Fully plan out the locations of all speakers, subwoofers
and buried wires before beginning the installation process.

Speaker Location
Speakers should be fairly evenly spaced in a line and aimed so
they cover the listening area uniformly. For best coverage, we
recommend placing the speakers 6 to 8 feet apart.
Subwoofer Location
Select a location for the subwoofer somewhat near the middle of
the speaker arrangement. For more bass, install the subwoofer
near a wall or other solid surface. Subwoofers should be positioned away from standing water.

Amplifier & Wiring Plan
Ideally, all the speakers and subwoofer will be connected to two
parallel wire runs, and these wires will be buried in a single trench.
The Acoustic Landscape™ system is designed for the speakers to
be evenly divided between these two wire runs, with the subwoofer connect to both.

Installation
Lay out the speakers and subwoofer in their selected locations.
To prevent water damage, angle the speaker less than 45 degrees
up.
Dig a hole for the subwoofer, about 16” deep and 11” in diameter.
Use loose dirt to level the subwoofer. The subwoofer shouldn’t be
in contact with large rocks or large empty holes.
About Speaker Wire
You will need a wire that has at least two conductors; one that can be
identified as the positive and the other as the negative. All two conductor
wires have some means of identifying which conductor is which, but at
times this identification may be subtle. It’s crucial that you keep track
of which wire you use for positive (+) and negative (-). Typically if the
wires are colored red and black, the red wire is used for positive and the
black wire is used for negative. You can choose whichever color of wire
you want to be positive and negative as long as you remain consistent
throughout the install.
Your amplifier, speakers and subwoofer will use red for positive and black
for negative. It is very important to be certain that the same wire that
is attached to the positive connector in the amplifier is attached to the
positive connector at the speaker.
Dig a 5” trench where you plan on laying out the wire. Run the
wire from the amplifier to your first speaker location.

WARNING
DO NOT connect the amplifier to AC power before all the speakers and
subwoofer are connected. DO NOT connect the speaker wire to the amplifier before all other connections have been made. DO NOT let any stray
(+) and (-) strands to come in contact with each other. This could damage
your amplifier.
Using waterproof wire nuts (included), connect the wire to the
first speaker using the following diagram as reference:
To Speaker
From
Amplifier
To Remaining
Speakers
Bundle all three of the left channel positive wires (wire from the
amplifier, wire to the first speaker, and wire to the rest of the
speakers) together and connect them with the first wire nut. Then
do the same for all the left channel negative wires.
Run the wires to the next speaker and connect them the same
way, but this time connect the right channel positive and negative
wires. Continue connecting the speakers like this, alternating left

and right, until you reach the subwoofer.
The subwoofer should have four input connections. Using the
wire nuts, connect both left and right channels to the subwoofer,
making sure positive is connected to positive and negative is connected to negative.
Continue down the line and connect the rest of the speakers. Then
connect the wires to the amplifier with the volume turned down.

Troubleshooting
If possible, it’s often good to try to isolate the problem first. For
example, if you’re playing a DVD on a television and there’s no
sound, try connecting an MP3 player to the system to see if that
works. If it does work, then the problem is with the television, DVD
player, or the cables connecting them. If it doesn’t work, the problem will be with the amplifier, speakers, or those cables.
Problem Possible Cause
No Sound
The volume may be turned down or muted. Check the volume
settings on both the amplifier and the television/computer/CD
player/etc.
Make sure the proper source is selected on the amplifier or
receiver.
Check the cord connecting the amplifier with the source. The
cord may be damaged or plugged into the wrong input or output.
Poor Sound Quality
Check the wires connecting the amplifier with the speakers.
Make sure they’re connected properly and not damaged in any
way.
8
If you hear something like static, or the sound is cutting in and
out, check the audio cables. If the problem increases when a
cable is being moved, then the cable is most likely faulty or not
connected properly.
Today’s audio systems may have several places to adjust the
volume, for example your MP3 player may have a volume control, and your amplifier may also have one. Check to be certain
that the volume isn’t turned up past 80% on any device.
Try changing sources to be certain that the selection you’ve
chosen is a good quality recording.
