Owner ’s Manual
Introduction
Congratulations on your purchase of a Signature SV Series speaker or subwoofer! Your
speakers and subwoofers are the result of many years of research and development dedicated
to producing high quality products for home audio and audio/video systems.
This manual contains features, setup recommendations and specifications for the Signature
SV Series freestanding speakers and subwoofers. It is recommended you thoroughly read
through the material contained in this manual before connecting your speakers. This
will ensure you have a good understanding of how to setup your speakers for optimum
performance and allow for years of listening enjoyment.
SV Series Speakers and Subwoofers
Break-in Period
Allow several hours of listening time to adequately break-in the Signature SV Series
speakers and subwoofers. As they break-in, the driver suspensions will loosen. The
result of break-in will be an increase in low frequency response, improved definition,
and increased clarity and detail.
Care and Cleaning
To maintain your subwoofer’s appearance, we recommend carefully wiping it with a clean,
damp soft cloth. To help clean dust from the grille cloth, we recommend using a vacuum
with a brush attachment.

Features
Sophisticated computer modeling and measurement techniques are used extensively
throughout the RBH Signature SV Series speaker design process. At the heart of the RBH
Signature SV Series speakers are proprietary aluminum woofers and midrange drivers.
The special aluminum cone material combines stiffness, low mass and self damping
properties in a manner that allows virtually uncolored presentation of program material.
A powerful magnet, extended voice coil and bumped back plate give the bass/midrange
drivers high excursion capability. This ensures accurate dynamic reproduction. For high
frequencies, a premium quality silk dome tweeter is used. This tweeter uses liquid cooling
to allow greater power handling.
Each Signature SV Series speaker features an extensive crossover network. Steep acoustic
slope crossovers are used to integrate drivers. The use of steep crossover slopes allows
for higher power handling, minimizes driver interaction anomalies, and maximizes the
ability of each driver in their respective band of frequencies. The 5-way binding posts
ensure a good, solid electrical connection to these crossover networks.
The Signature SV Series speaker cabinets are constructed of a minimum of ¾-inch
medium density fiberboard because of its inert properties, thereby preventing sound
coloration due to cabinet diffraction. The double thickness of the front baffles also
prevents acoustic radiation.
Signature SV Reference Series
Setting the standard by which all other RBH speakers are measured, the Signature
SV Reference Series offers the luxury of the Signature SV Series speakers with the
extreme performance of reference-grade components. The tweeter has a larger
motor structure, increased power handling and improved resolution. The aluminum
cone woofers that give the Signature SV Series its great bass to upper-midrange
performance are replaced with an even more advanced aluminum cone woofer
featuring a fixed-position phase plug. The addition of this phase plug extends
frequency response and increases power handling, resulting in increased sonic
clarity. The crossover network has been modified to accommodate the higher
quality driver components resulting in amplified audio quality and power handling.

Attaching Speaker Wires
If using a banana jack, attach the matching positive or negative wire and push directly
into binding post top hole.
If not using a banana jack, simply loosen the binding nut to allow the hole in the side
of the terminal to become exposed. Strip ¼-inch of the insulation from the end of the
speaker wire and insert the exposed wire end into the now exposed hole in the side of
the terminal. Tighten the binding nut by turning the nut clockwise until the speaker
wire is secured. Repeat for the other speaker wire(s) as necessary.

Room Setup Suggestions
In order to obtain the best possible sound from your speaker system, it is important to
determine where the speakers will sound best in your listening room. Room reflections
from the floor, ceiling and side walls influence the balance, imaging and overall sonic
quality at the listening position. Experiment with speaker placement to determine which
location offers the best overall sound. As a general guide, use the room layout diagram
and the following descriptions when setting up a home theater system. Some speakers
shown in the diagram may not always be applicable to your individual system.
Front Main Speakers
As a starting point, place your left and right tower speakers at least 15 inches from the
wall and 7-feet apart from each other. The distance from the listening position to each
speaker should be close to the distance that separates the two main speakers. Angling
the speakers inward towards the listening position may give a more spacious and realistic
sound stage.
Center Channel Speaker
The center channel speaker should be placed in the center between both left and right
main speakers. Often this positioning dictates placing the speaker either directly above or
below a television monitor. The center channel speaker may be placed in either a horizontal
(lying down) or vertical (standing) position.
Rear Surround Speakers
The surround speakers may be placed either above, behind or to the sides of the listening
position. The listening position should be centered between the surround speakers. For
best performance you may want to experiment with angling the surround speakers either
towards or away from the listening position.
Subwoofer
In order to obtain the best possible sound from your subwoofer, it is important to determine
where the subwoofer will sound best in your listening room. Sound reflections from the
floor, ceiling and side walls influence the balance, imaging and overall sonic quality at
the listening position. Experiment with subwoofer placement to determine which location
offers the best overall sound.
Placement of the subwoofer will largely determine quality, quantity and extension of the
bass frequencies within your listening room. Bass frequencies are reinforced by close room
boundaries. Placing the subwoofer in a corner will make the subwoofer sound louder and
boost the very lowest frequencies.
Placing the subwoofer away from walls will provide the least reinforcement, making the
bass sound subjectively thinner than if the woofer were closer to a wall. Good results can
usually be obtained by placing a subwoofer along a wall 1-3 feet from a corner. Experiment
with placement of the subwoofer and the sub-amplifier controls to achieve the proper
bass balance.

Room Setup Suggestions (continued)
IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING BASS MANAGEMENT: It is important the signal being sent
to the subwoofer be a non-boosted or “flat” signal. To be sure of this, check the settings
on your receiver or processor to make sure any “bass boost”, “super bass” or “loudness” is
set to Off. In most cases a home theater receiver or processor will determine the crossover
frequency through bass management settings. In this configuration, connect the receiver’s
or processor’s subwoofer output to the subwoofer’s LFE Line Level Input. Your subwoofer will
now reproduce the bass frequencies the way they were originally recorded. Use the subwoofer
level control and the individual bass management control within the receiver or processor
to adjust the subwoofers’ volume if necessary. Once set, the volume controls should not
need to be altered as the subwoofers’ volume will track with the master volume control of
your receiver or processor.
NOTE: There are several different surround formats available. Please consult your audio/video professional to determine
which system is best for you and how many speakers you will require.

Subwoofer Safety Instructions
The lightning flash with the arrowhead symbol within an equilateral triangle, is intended
to alert the user to the presence of un-insulated “dangerous voltage” within the product
enclosure that may be of sufficient magnitude to constitute a risk of 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 product.
When using your subwoofer, basic safety precautions should always be followed to reduce
the risk of fire, electric shock, and injury.
1. Read and understand all instructions in this User’s Manual before operating the
subwoofer and retain this user manual for future reference.
2. Follow all warnings and instructions in this manual and any marked on the back of
the Subwoofer.
3. Never touch the woofer or push objects of any kind into the woofer.
4. The subwoofer should be connected to a power supply compatible with the power
consumption requirements, see the specifications section of this manual.
5. If mounting the subwoofer on a stand, the wall, or other device only do so as
recommended by an authorized technician.
6. Place the subwoofer a safe distance from all heat sources such as radiators, stoves,
or heaters.
7. Do not operate the subwoofer near water—for example, near a bathtub, kitchen
sink or in a wet basement; or a swimming pool.
8. Power supply cords should be routed so they are not likely to be walked on or
pinched by items placed upon or against them.
9. Any service or repair required must be performed by qualified, authorized technician.
Subwoofer Amplifier Controls and Setup
This section describes the functions and/or use for each of the amplifier controls located
on the back of the SV-12P, SV-12P/R, and SV-1212P. Refer to the diagram of the on page 8
1. Voltage Selector Switch: Before connecting the amplifier to any power source
make sure the AC Voltage Selector is set to either 110V or 220V to match the power
voltage in your area. Note: If switching voltage, also make sure to change the
fuse (see #11).
WARNING! If the voltage setting does not match the AC power supplied, damage
to the Subwoofer Amplifier may result.
2. Volume/Gain Control: The volume/level control should be at the minimum setting
Signature SV Series

Owner’s Manual
Subwoofer Amplifier Controls and Setup (continued)
(all the way counter-clockwise) before plugging the subwoofer into an AC wall
socket. Once plugged in, turn the level control up one quarter of a turn (9 o’clock
position) for an initial setting. The level control may be adjusted while playing to
match the subwoofer level with the rest of the system.
IMPORTANT! The volume control should be at the minimum setting (all the way
counter-clockwise) before plugging the subwoofer into an AC wall socket.
3. Crossover Frequency Control: The variable crossover frequency control allows
you to set the low-pass crossover point of the subwoofer anywhere from
40-150 Hz. Experiment with setting the crossover frequency control at highest
setting initially. Increasing the crossover frequency will allow more mid-bass output
from the subwoofer. Decreasing the frequency will allow only deeper bass from the
subwoofer. If using LFE In (#7), crossover control will not function.
NOTE: Read the Important Notice regarding bass management on page 4.
4. Auto Signal Tracking: The subwoofer amplifier uses “smart” signal tracking circuitry.
Once the power cord is plugged in and the switch set to auto, the amplifier automatically
turns on when an audio signal is detected at the preamplifier or high level inputs and
turns off when no signal has been detected for approximately 15 minutes. This switch
MUST be set to the “ON” or “AUTO-ON” position for the amplifier to work properly.
5. Phase Control: This control changes the phase of the subwoofer. Changing the
phase will change the way the subwoofer and main speakers interact with each
other at the crossover frequency. Varying the phase position may result in more
or less mid bass depending on the phasing between the main speakers and the
subwoofer. Generally, the phase is left at the “0” position.
6. LFE Out: This RCA terminals is for “daisy chaining” to another subwoofer or amplifier.
A full-range signal is sent through this terminal.
7. LFE In: This line level input is used to connect to most receivers or processors. This
bypasses the sub amplifier’s internal low-pass filter. If your receiver or pre-amp
has a subwoofer out, this is most likely the input you will need to use.
8. Line Inputs: These RCA terminal connections receive the pre-amp line out from
an amplifier/receiver. This input uses the amplifier’s internal crossover.
9. Balanced LFE In: Impedance-balanced XLR female input connection to receive
balanced pre-amp output from receiver. This input susceptibility to external noise.
10. Balanced LFE Out: Impedance-balanced XLR male output to connect to another
XLR LFE input amplifier.

Subwoofer Amplifier Controls and Setup (continued)
This section describes the functions and/or use for each of the amplifier controls located
on the back of the SV-1212P/R subwoofer. See the diagram of the back of the subwoofer
on the following page.
1. Power: Power on and off switch.
2. Secondary Speaker Outlet SpeakON connector: This female Neutrik SpeakOn
connector provides amplified output to connect an additional passive subwoofer.
3. IEC Power Input receptacle: Connect IEC power cord to power amplifier.
4. Auto Signal Tracking: The subwoofer amplifier uses “smart” signal tracking
circuitry. Once the power cord is plugged in and the switch set to auto, the amplifier
automatically turns on when an audio signal is detected at the preamplifier or high
level inputs and turns off when no signal has been detected for approximately 15
minutes. This switch MUST be set to the “ON” or “AUTO-ON” position for the amplifier
to work properly unless using the 12V trigger to turn on the amplifier.
5. Standby/On LED: These LED lights indicate whether the amplifier is in standby
mode or powered on.
6. Volume/Gain Control: The volume/level control should be at the minimum setting
(all the way counter-clockwise) before plugging the subwoofer into an AC wall
socket. Once plugged in, turn the level control up one quarter of a turn (9 o’clock
position) for an initial setting. The level control may be adjusted while playing to
match the subwoofer level with the rest of the system.
IMPORTANT! The volume control should be at the minimum setting (all the way
counter-clockwise) before plugging the subwoofer into an AC wall socket.
7. LFE Adjust: Changes the level of boost or cut that is applied to the input signal
centered at 25Hz. 5dB of boost or cut is available.
8. Crossover Frequency Control: The variable crossover frequency control allows you to
set the low-pass crossover point of the subwoofer anywhere from 60-120 Hz. Experiment
with setting the crossover frequency control at highest setting initially. Increasing the
crossover frequency will allow more mid-bass output from the subwoofer. Decreasing
the frequency will allow only deeper bass from the subwoofer. If using LFE In (#7),
crossover control will not function.
NOTE: Read the Important Notice regarding bass management on page 4.
9. Delay Control: To obtain better integration of the subwoofer with the main speakers
and help offset the distance between the main speakers, the subwoofer delay control
allows up to 20 milliseconds of delay, which effectively changes the phase between
the subwoofer and main speakers.
10.XLR Input: XLR input from a pre-amplifier’s or receiver’s XLR output.
11. XLR Output: XLR output to supply another amplifier’s XLR input.
12.DSP Program Button: One of two DSP programs can be selected. With the button
pressed in, a low-pass filter at 80Hz will be enabled. When the button is left out,
the low-pass filter will be defeated. The amplifier power has to be cycled for these
DSP settings to take effect.

AMT Tweeter
RBH Signature Reference speakers incorporate custom designed AMT (Air Motion Transformer)
tweeter technology. The AMT tweeter is a pneumatic transducer that utilizes a flexible low-mass
diaphragm with optimal rigidity and self damping characteristics which is folded and suspended
in a highly saturated magnetic field. This low mass diaphragm incorporates an aluminum
conductor and has vastly larger surface area compared to traditional dome style tweeters. The
benefits of this of this type of tweeter design are extended high frequency response, increased
sensitivity, lower distortion and higher dynamic range. High frequency response extends beyond
35 kHz adding a sense of air and detail that surpasses other more traditional tweeter designs.
The AMT tweeters seamlessly integrate with the RBH’s metal cone drivers, providing a sense
of spaciousness and realism and realism to the sound-stage that is second to none.
