or extension cord that does not have
a grounding plug provided.
Make certain that the
AC outlet is properly grounded.
Do not use an adapter plug
with this product.
The lightning flash with arrowhead symbol,
within an equilateral 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 electric shock to persons.
The exclamation point within an equilateral
triangle is intended to alert the user to the
presence of important operating and
maintenance (servicing) instructions in the
literature accompanying the appliance.
1. Read Instructions. All the
safety and operating instructions
should be read before the product
is operated.
2. Retain Instructions. The safety
and operating instructions should
be retained for future reference.
3. Heed Warnings. All warnings on
the product and in the operating
instructions should be adhered to.
4. Follow Instructions. All
operating and use instructions
should be followed.
5. Water and Moisture. The product
should not be used near water – for
example, near a bathtub, washbowl,
kitchen sink, laundry tub, in a wet

and the like.
6. Accessories. Do not place this
product on an unstable cart, stand,
tripod, bracket, or table. The product may fall, causing serious injury
to a child or adult, and serious
damage to the product. Use only
with a cart, stand, tripod, bracket,
or table recommended by the manufacturer, or sold with the product.
Any mounting of the product should
follow the manufacturer’s instructions, and should use a mounting
accessory recommended by the
manufacturer.
7. Wall or Ceiling Mounting. The
product should be mounted on a
wall or ceiling only when and as
recommended by the manufacturer.
8. Ventilation. Slots and openings
in the cabinet are provided for
ventilation and to ensure reliable
operation of the product and to
protect it from overheating, and
these openings must not be blocked
or covered. The openings should
Page 1
Important Safety Precautions!
never be blocked by placing the
product on a bed, sofa, rug, or
other similar surface. This product
should not be placed in a built-in
installation such as a bookcase or
rack unless proper ventilation is
provided or the manufacturer’s
instructions have been adhered to.
9. Heat. The product should be
situated away from heat sources
such as radiators, heat registers,
stoves, or other products that
produce heat. If placed near
an amplifier, check with the
manufacturer for applicability.
10. Power Sources. This product
should be operated only from the
type of power source indicated on
the marking label. If you are not
sure of the type of power supply to
your home, consult your product
dealer or local power company. For
products intended to operate from
battery power, or other sources,
refer to the operating instructions.
11. Grounding or Polarization.
This product may be equipped with
a polarized alternating-current line
plug (a plug having one blade wider
than the other). This plug will fit
into the power outlet only one way.
This is a safety feature. If you are
unable to insert the plug fully into
the outlet, try reversing the plug. If
the plug should still fail to fit, contact your electrician to replace your
obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the
safety purpose of the polarized
plug.
12. Power-Cord Protection. Powersupply cords should be routed so
that they are not likely to be
walked on or pinched by items
placed upon or against them,
paying particular attention to cords
at plugs, convenience receptacles,
and the point where they exit from
the product.
13. Cleaning. Unplug this product
from the wall outlet before cleaning. Do not use liquid cleaners or
aerosol cleaners. Use a damp cloth
for cleaning.
14. Nonuse Periods. The power
cord of the product should be
unplugged from the outlet when left
unused for long periods of time.
15. Lightning. For added protection
for this product during a lightning
storm, or when it is left unattended
and unused for long periods of time,
unplug it from the wall outlet and
disconnect the antenna or cable
system. This will prevent damage to
the product due to lightning and
power-line surges.

wall outlets, extension cords, or
integral convenience receptacles, as
this can result in a risk of fire or
electric shock.
17. Object and Liquid Entry. Never
push objects of any kind into this
product through openings, as they
may touch dangerous voltage points
or short-out parts that could result
in a fire or electric shock. Never
spill liquid of any kind on the

product; or
c. The product has been exposed to
rain or water; or
d. The product does not operate
normally when following the

often require extensive work by a
qualified technician to restore the
product to its normal operation; or
e. The product has been dropped,
or the enclosure damaged; or
f. The product does not appear to
operate normally or exhibits a
marked change in performance.

Note: When using the speakerlevel connections, the built-in
high-pass filter will also limit
the low frequencies being sent
to your satellite speakers. This
means that your satellites won’t
have to try to reproduce the
information the subwoofer
is playing.

Crossover Frequency
The crossover-frequency knob
determines the highest frequency your subwoofer will
reproduce. It allows a seamless transition from the
subwoofer to the satellite
speakers. Experiment with
this adjustment to find the
crossover frequency that
sounds best with your
speakers.
When the control is at the
”50“ position, very few high
frequencies will be heard.
This position is best suited
to large main speakers. For
most users, the control should
be set somewhere near the
mid position. For listeners
using very small speakers,
best results will be obtained
with the control at the ”150“
position.
If there is low bass output,
check the following:
If you used the line-level
inputs and there is no
sound from the subwoofer,
check the following:
Troubleshooting
If you used the high-level
(SPKR) inputs and there is
no sound from any of the
speakers, check the
following:
• Receiver/amplifier is on
and a source is playing.
• Powered subwoofer is
plugged in.
• Check all wires and connections between receiver/
amplifier and speakers. Make
sure all wires are connected.
Make sure none of the
speaker wires are frayed,
cut or punctured.
• Review proper operation
of your receiver/amplifier.
• Make sure the connections
to the left and right “Speaker
Inputs” have the correct
polarity (+ and –).
• Make sure that the subwoofer is plugged into an
active electrical outlet.
• Powered subwoofer is
plugged in.
• Adjust the crossover point.
• Receiver/amplifier is on
and a source is playing.
• Powered subwoofer is
plugged in.
• Check all wires and connections between receiver/
amplifier and subwoofer.
Make sure all wires are connected. Make sure none of
the wires are frayed, cut or
punctured.
• Review proper operation of
your receiver/amplifier.
