this speaker is designed to be used close to a television, but the
picture may be affected with some televisions and set-up combinations.
If this occurs, turn the television off for about 30 minutes.
The television’s demagnetizing function should correct the problem.
If it persists, move the speaker further away from the television.
Note:
Do not attach this speaker to walls or ceilings.
Protection circuitry
This unit incorporates speaker-protection circuits to prevent damage caused by excessive input or abnormal signals. When excess
input is detected, the input is automatically interrupted.
If sound is interrupted...
1. Reduce the volume level from the receiver or amplifier.
2. Check whether or not there is anything wrong with the equipment
used such as the sound source, or connections. If there is nothing wrong, turn off the power.
3. Turn on the power once again.
After the protection circuitry is reset...
Take care not to increase the receiver’s or amplifier’s volume level
too much.

Operation
Set the low pass filter, volume and phase to suit characteristics of
the speaker and SB-AS100 combination.
1
Set [POWER] to the “
ON” position.
The unit is now in standby mode and the POWER indicator
turns red.
When a signal is received the unit turns ON automatically and
the indicator turns green.
The unit automatically switches to standby if a signal is not
received for approximately two (2) minutes
Front
Rear
2
Set [LOW PASS FILTER] to a suitable
frequency. Refer to “Frequency response by LOW PASS FILTER setting”.
3
Set [VOLUME] to a suitable level. Refer
to “Frequency response by VOLUME
setting”.
4
After playing some music, set [PHASE]
to “ NORMAL” or “
REVERSE”,
whichever position allows playback to
sound normal.
For your reference:
If subwoofer and front speaker phase are the inverse of one
another, they will tend to cancel each other out. Playback will
not be normal and sounds will seem muffled.
When settings are complete
The only operation you should have to perform daily is press
[POWER] to turn the unit ON/OFF.
If you reposition the system and the acoustics change, reset the unit
as necessary.
Note
If the volume output is too loud, this unit's amplifier can be clipped,
causing output to sound unusual. Reduce the volume of the receiver
or amplifier or the volume of this unit if this occurs.

INSIDE.
REFER SERVICING TO QUALIFIED
SERVICE PERSONNEL.
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.
Precautions
1. Power Source—The unit should be connected to power supply
only of the type described in the operating instructions or as
marked on the unit.
2. Polarization—If the unit is equipped with a polarized AC power
plug (a plug having one blade wider than the other), that plug
will fit into the AC 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.
3. Power Cord Protection—AC power supply cords should be
routed so that they are not likely to be walked on or pinched by
items placed upon or against them. Never take hold of the plug
or cord if your hand is wet, and always grasp the plug body
when connecting or disconnecting it.
4. Nonuse Periods—When the unit is not used, turn the power
off. When left unused for a long period of time, the unit should
be unplugged from the household AC outlet.
Printed in U.S.A.
1. Ventilation—The unit should be situated so that its location or
position does not interfere with its proper ventilation. Allow
10 cm (4w) clearance from the rear of the unit.
2. Foreign Material—Care should be taken so that objects do not
fall into and liquids are not spilled into the unit. Do not subject
this unit to excessive smoke, dust, mechanical vibration, or
shock.
3. Magnetism—The unit should be situated away from equipment
or devices that generate strong magnetic fields.
4. Stacking—Do not place heavy objects, other than system components, on top of the unit.
5. Surface—Place the unit on a flat, level surface.
6. Carts and Stands—The unit should be used only with a cart or
stand that is recommended by the manufacturer.
The unit and cart combination should be moved
with care. Quick stops, excessive force, and uneven surfaces may cause the unit and cart
combination to overturn.
7. Wall or Ceiling Mounting—The unit should not be mounted to
a wall or ceiling, unless specified in this operating instructions.
Clean the cabinet, panel and controls with a soft cloth lightly moistened with mild detergent solution.
Do not use any type of abrasive pad, scouring powder or solvent
such as alcohol or benzine.
