PRECAUTIONS
Read this before using the speaker.
•
Do not place the speaker where it is liable to be knocked
over or struck by falling objects. Stable placement will
also ensure better sound performance.
•
Install the speaker in a cool, dry, clean place – away
from windows, heat sources, sources of excessive
vibration, dust, moisture and cold. Avoid sources of
humming (transformers, motors). To prevent fire or
electrical shock, do not expose the speaker to rain or
water.
•
Placing the speaker on the same shelf or rack as the
turntable can result in feedback.
•
Any time you note distortion, reduce the volume control
on your amplifier to a lower setting. Never allow your
amplifier to be driven into “clipping”. Otherwise the
speaker may be damaged.
•
When using an amplifier with a rated output power
higher than the nominal input power of the speaker, care
should be taken never to exceed the speaker’s
maximum input.
•
Do not attempt to clean the speaker with chemical
solvents as this might damage the finish. Use a clean,
dry cloth.
•
Do not attempt to modify or fix the speaker. Contact
qualified YAMAHA service personnel when any service
is needed. The cabinet should never be opened for any
reasons.
•
Secure placement or installation is the owner’s
responsibility.
YAMAHA shall not be liable for any accident caused
by improper placement or installation of the speaker.
•
To prevent the enclosure from warping or discoloring, do
not place the speaker where it will be exposed to direct
sunlight or excessive humidity.
•
Do not place the following objects on the speaker:
Glass, china, etc.
If glass etc. falls by vibrations and breaks, it may cause
personal injury.
A burning candle etc.
If the candle falls by vibrations, it may cause fire and
personal injury.
A vessel with water in it
If the vessel falls by vibrations and water spills, it may
cause damage to the speaker, and/or you may get an
electric shock.
•
Do not place the speaker where foreign objects such as
water drips might fall. It might cause a fire, damage to
the speaker, and/or personal injury.

PLACING THE SPEAKERS
Place the speakers on a sturdy, vibration-free surface, on a
well-built stand.
■ Using as 2ch stereo speakers
Better stereo images will be obtained when the speakers
are slightly angled in towards the listeners.
■ To mount the speaker on a wall by using
the attached mounting bracket
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 parts of the holes.

■ Using as front speakers in a multi channel
system
Position the speakers on both sides of the TV. The
positioning of speakers is important, because it controls the
whole sound quality of a multi channel system. Set up the
speakers on the basis of your listening position by following
the owner’s manual supplied with your amplifier.

Note:
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 or create a buzzing
noise. Should this happen, move the speaker away from
the TV set.
WARNING:
• This speaker weighs 3.8 kg (8.4 lbs). Do not mount it
on thin plywood or a wall with soft surface material. If
mounted, the screws may come out of the flimsy
surface and the speaker may fall. This damages the
speaker or causes personal injury.
• Do not install the speaker to a wall with nails,
adhesives, or any other unstable hardware. Longterm use and vibrations may cause it to fall.
• To avoid accidents resulting from tripping over loose
speaker cable, fix it to the wall.

CONNECTIONS TO YOUR AMPLIFIER
■ CONNECTIONS
• Connect the screw-type input terminals at the rear of the
speakers to the speaker output terminals of the amplifier
(or receiver) with the speaker cable.
• Connect the (+) terminals on the amplifier (or receiver)
and the speakers using one side of the cable. Connect
the (–) terminals on both components using the other
side of the cable.
• Connect one speaker to the left (marked L) terminals of
your amplifier, and another speaker to the right (marked
R) terminals, making sure not to reverse the polarity
(+, –). If one speaker is connected with reversed polarity,
the sound will be unnatural and lack bass.
