OWNER S MANUAL
CONSUMER PRECAUTIONS
Read these precautions carefully before operating your NS-AP2800 speakers.
Since these speakers can be wall mounted, it is essential that they are firmly secured. Be sure to consult a
reliable source about the best type of hanger for your particular wall s construction. Secure installation is the
purchaser s responsibility.
Do not attach them to thin plywood or soft wall surface materials as the screws may tear free, causing the
speakers to fall and be damaged, or result in personal injury.
Do not fasten the speakers to walls with nails, adhesives, or other unsafe hardware. Long-term use and
vibrations may cause them to pull free.
Do not place the speakers where they are liable to be knocked over or struck by falling objects. Stable
placement will also ensure better sound performance.
Placing the speakers on the same stand or shelf as a turntable can result in feedback.
This speaker features a magnetically shielded design, but there is still a chance that placing it too close to a
TV set might impair picture color. Should this happen, move the speaker away from the TV set.
Never touch the woofer or tweeter units with your hands or expose them to excessive physical shock. If they
are dented or bent, the sound will be distorted.
Lower the power amplifier / receiver volume control before changing input sources. Never change input
sources (for example, FM to CD) at high listening levels. Always turn the receiver / amplifier unit off when
installing or removing input cables.
Anytime you note distortion, reduce the volume control on your power amplifier / receiver to a lower setting.
Never allow your power amplifier to be driven into clipping .
Do not attempt to clean the speakers with chemical solvents as this might damage the finish. To clean wipe
with a dry, soft cloth.
To prevent the enclosure from warping or discoloring, do not place the speakers where they will be exposed to
direct sunlight or excessive humidity.
To prevent the speakers from falling over, select a location which is flat and stable.
To avoid accidents resulting from tripping over loose speaker cables and to prevent the speakers from falling,
fix the speaker cables to the wall, etc.
Secure placement or installation is the owner s responsibility.
YAMAHA shall not be liable for any accident caused by improper placement or installation of speakers.

SETTING UP THE SPEAKERS
Attaching the non-skid pads to the speakers
Place the speakers on a sturdy, vibration-free surface, such as a well-built stand. Attach the included non-skid
pads to the bottom of the speakers to prevent the speakers from slipping.
Wall mounting the front and/or surround speakers
When mounting the speakers on a wall, attach one of the non-skid pads provided near each of the corners on
the rear surface of the speaker to prevent the speaker cable from being caught between the wall and the
speaker.
You can also use the screw holes on the back of the speaker for
installing the speakers on commercially available speaker brackets.
2-3/8 (60 mm)
Wall / wall support
A screw with a diameter of
1/4 can be used.
(Hole depth:9/32 )
Tapping screw
(Available at the hardware store)
When using speaker brackets to mount the speakers on a wall or ceiling, it is strongly recommended that
safety wire, which may be included with the bracket, be used between the speaker and the bracket to prevent
the speaker from falling.
Fasten screws into a firm wall or wall support as shown in the figure, and hang the holes of the mounting
bracket on the protruding screws.
Make sure that the screws are securely caught by the narrow sections of the key hole opening.
WARNING
Each speaker weighs 2.05 lbs (0.93 kg). Do not mount the speakers on thin plywood or a wall with soft
surface material, since the screws may pull away from the surface and fall. This will damage the speakers
and can cause personal injury.
Do not mount tne speakers on a wall with nails, adhesives, or any other unstable hardware. Long-term
use and vibrations may cause them to fall.
To avoid accidents resulting from tripping over loose speaker cords, they should be affixed to the wall or
floor molding.

Secure installation is the purchaser s responsibility.
Positioning the center speaker
Place the center speaker on top of the TV, on the floor in front of the TV, or inside the TV rack so that it is stable.
When placing the speaker on top of the TV, put the provided fasteners at two points on both the bottom of the
speaker and on top of the TV to prevent the speaker from falling.

Notes
Do not place the speaker on top of the TV if the area is smaller than the bottom area of the speaker. The
speaker may fall and might cause personal injury.
Though this speaker is a magnetically shielded type, there may be some influence on a TV picture depending
on the type of TV or the placement of the speaker. In such a case, place the speaker apart from TV so that
there is no influence on TV picture.

To avoid accidents resulting from tripping over loose speaker cords, they should be affixed to the wall or floor
molding.
Secure installation is the purchaser s responsibility.

For connections, keep the speaker cords as short as possible. Do not bundle or roll up the excess part of the
cords. If the connections are faulty, no sound will be heard from the speakers. Make sure that the + and - polarity
markings of the speaker cords are observed and set correctly. If these cords are reversed, the sound will be
unnatural and lack bass.

SPEAKER PLACEMENT
This speaker system consists of front, center and surround speakers.
Front speaker placement should be separated by a distance of 6-10ft. lf they are placed too close together,
there will be a reduction in the stereo effect. Conversely, lf placed too far apart, the so called middleomission effect will occur and the vocal center fill will be lost. Height of the speaker should be at least at ear
level.
Center channel speakers should be placed centered above or below the TV.
Surround speakers should ideally be placed behind the listening area, at least as far apart as the front
speakers and up to 2 additional feet apart per side. The height of the speaker should be at a minimum of ear
level or preferably somewhat higher.
