SAFE LIMITS OF OPERATION
Your Polk Audio Loudspeakers are constructed of the highest quality materials for years of trouble-free performance. However, damage
to loudspeakers can occur when an amplifier, regardless of its wattage, is made to play at higher listening levels than its power can clearly
produce. This is usually beyond the “noon or 1 o’clock” position on the volume control. Operation at this level can result in very high levels
of audible distortion originating in the amplifier, which can add a harsh, gritty sound to your listening material. If you hear distortion,
TURN IT DOWN. Contrary to popular belief, a speaker is more likely to be damaged by trying to get too much volume from a low-powered
amplifier or receiver than from a high-powered one.
TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE OR SERVICE
If, after following the hookup directions, you experience difficulty, please double-check all wire connections. Should you isolate the problem
to the speaker, contact the authorized Polk Audio dealer where you made your purchase, or contact Polk Audio Customer Service
800-377-7655 (M-F, 9-6 EST, US & Canada only) or via email polkcs@polkaudio.com. Outside the US & Canada, call 410-358-3600.
