don’t hear music from the subwoofer, try another CHANNEL.
4. Go to the Adjust Subwoofer Controls instructions next.
Wireless Broadcast Considerations
All wireless devices like the Wi-Connect may be susceptible to radio frequency (RF) interference from other devices. Other RF devices include
WiFi Internet access, computer equipment and routers; WiFi solar panel monitoring systems; video game consoles, cordless telephones, blue
tooth devices, baby monitors and microwave ovens. In particular, any devices operating in the 2.4 GHz band may cause intermittent wireless
connections between the wireless transmitter and subwoofer.
To prevent wireless broadcast interference problems, keep wireless devices at least 2’ apart. Any interference effects from a microwave oven
will cease once the oven stops operating and may be resolved on a long-term basis by increasing the physical distance between the
subwoofer and the microwave oven.
If the Wi-Connect sound is intermittent, check that another wireless device isn’t within 2’ of either the wireless transmitter or the subwoofer.
[1]
W i-Connect User’s Manual
Adjust Subwoofer Controls
Now it’s time to adjust the subwoofer controls to match your listening environment and preferences.
1. Turn the VOLUME to a level that balances with the output volume of your satellite speakers and doesn’t distort the bass sounds. You
might also want to adjust your receiver’s LFE output volume higher, if you can’t get a loud enough subwoofer output, or lower, if the
subwoofer output is too loud.
2. If you didn’t use the LFE INPUT on the wireless transmitter, optionally, adjust the LOW-PASS FREQUENCY to provide a wireless
transmitter input equivalent to an LFE input. The LOW-PASS FREQUENCY is the frequency at which the subwoofer’s output starts to
decrease as the frequency increases. Your satellite speakers output the frequencies not covered by the subwoofer. You want to not be
able to hear the transition from the subwoofer output to your satellite speakers’ output. You can adjust this frequency from between 50
Hz to 200 Hz. To adjust this frequency:
a. If your satellite speakers are small with limited low frequency output, choose a LOW-PASS FREQUENCY of between
100 Hz and 120 Hz.
b. If your satellite speakers are larger with better low frequency output, choose a LOW-PASS FREQUENCY of around 80 Hz.
c. Adjust the LOW-PASS FREQUENCY based on listening to your audio system until it sounds pleasing to your ear.
3. Optionally, switch the PHASE to 180°. This reverses the phase of the subwoofer to correct for sound cancellations between your
subwoofer and your satellite speakers. To determine which PHASE is best for your room and subwoofer location:
a. Listen to the system with music playing.
b. Ask a friend to switch the PHASE switch from 0° to 180° while you listen for a change in the mid-bass loudness.
c. The correct PHASE is the one that you hear as having louder mid-bass.
d. If you can’t tell a difference, keep the phase at 0°.
4. Optionally, you now can fine tune the location of your subwoofer for your listening preferences, move the subwoofer to different spots
and listen to the audio output until you determine the location you want for the subwoofer.
5. You’re done setting up the Wi-Connect. Enjoy!

mount the transmitter to a wall:
1. Obtain 2 flat head screws and, if you are anchoring to drywall only, wall anchors to fit the screws you are using.
NOTE: Use screws and anchors such that the weight of the transmitter, power cable/adaptor and cable connectors will not pull the screws
out of the wall.
2. Drill 2 holes ?? inches (??? cm) apart to mount the transmitter vertically or holes ?? inches (??? cm) to mount it horizontally.
3. Drive screws into the drilled holes or wall anchors until about 1/8” (?? mm) of the screw shank is exposed.
4. Hang transmitter on the screws using the slotted holes on back of the transmitter.

FEATURES
Protection Circuitry
The subwoofer is equipped with protection circuitry to provide maximum performance with greatest reliability.
The subwoofer is protected against:
• Overdriving the speaker
• Overdriving the amplifier
• Overheating the amplifier
• Excessive drop in power line voltage
The overdrive protection circuitry operates constantly without being audible under most situations.
The overheating and under voltage protection circuitry shuts down the subwoofer momentarily in some extreme situations like sustained high
output levels that can occur with use in a professional sound situation.
If the subwoofer should shut down, reduce the volume setting or shut the subwoofer off until normal operating conditions return.
You may also want to plug the unit into a different wall as dropping power voltage will be most noticeable under strenuous conditions and may
result in the unit shutting down intermittently.
