WWW.ACOUSTIC-LANDSCAPE.COM 1 Installation Requirements 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. Max Wire Recommended Length (Feet) Gauge 100 18 150 16 250 14 400 12 650 10 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. 2 844·674·4461 TECHSUPPORT@ACOUSTICLANDSCAPE.COM AS41HI-FI LANDSCAPE AUDIO SYSTEM MANUAL 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. AS4SAT Expansion Pack Speakers Patio (Listening Area) Subwoofer AS4SAT Expansion Pack Layout Example WWW.ACOUSTIC-LANDSCAPE.COM 3 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. Left channel Right channel AS4SAT Expansion Pack AS4SAT Expansion Pack Amplifier Most receivers can safely handle up to 8 speakers and a subwoofer (6 ohm load). 4 844·674·4461 TECHSUPPORT@ACOUSTICLANDSCAPE.COM AS41HI-FI LANDSCAPE AUDIO SYSTEM MANUAL 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. WWW.ACOUSTIC-LANDSCAPE.COM 5 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 6 844·674·4461 TECHSUPPORT@ACOUSTICLANDSCAPE.COM AS41HI-FI LANDSCAPE AUDIO SYSTEM MANUAL 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.

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. 844·674·4461 TECHSUPPORT@ACOUSTICLANDSCAPE.COM AS41HI-FI LANDSCAPE AUDIO SYSTEM MANUAL Technical Assistance If you are having any troubles with the installation, or technical issues with the equipment, please contact one of our expert support staff, we will be happy to walk you through the entire setup or problem shooting process.
