PLACEMENT
One subwoofer will have a good effect on your audio
system, however, the use of two subwoofers is
recommended to obtain more effect.
A
If using one subwoofer, it is recommended to place it on
the outside of either the right or the left front speaker. (See
fig. A .) If using two subwoofers, it is recommended to
place them on the outside of each front speaker. (See
fig. B .) The placement shown in fig. C is also possible,
however, if the subwoofer system is placed directly facing
the wall, the bass effect may lessen because the sound from
it and the sound reflected by the wall may cancel out each
other. To prevent this from happening, face the subwoofer
system at an angle as in fig. A or B .
B
Note
There may be a case that you cannot obtain enough superbass sounds from the subwoofer when listening in the
center of the room. This is because “standing waves” have
been developed between two parallel walls and they cancel
the bass sounds.
In such a case, face the subwoofer obliquely to the wall. It
also may be necessary to break up the parallel surfaces by
placing bookshelves etc. along the walls.
Use the non-skid pads
Put the provided non-skid pads at the four corners on the
bottom of the subwoofer to prevent the subwoofer from
moving by vibrations etc.

Rotate the VOLUME control gradually to adjust the
volume balance between the subwoofer and the other
speakers.
* Normally, set the control to the level where you can
obtain a little more bass effect than when the
subwoofer is not used. If the desired response cannot
be obtained, adjust the HIGH CUT switch and the
VOLUME control again.
Notes
• Once the volume balance between the subwoofer and
the front speakers is adjusted, you can adjust the
volume of your whole sound system by using the
amplifier’s volume control.
However, if you change the front speakers to others,
you must make this adjustment again.
• For adjusting the VOLUME control, the HIGH CUT

ADVANCED YAMAHA ACTIVE SERVO TECHNOLOGY II
In 1988, Yamaha brought to the marketplace speaker
systems utilizing YST (Yamaha Active Servo Technology)
to give powerful, high quality bass reproduction. This
technique uses a direct connection between the amplifier
and speaker, allowing accurate signal transmission and
precise speaker control.
As this technology uses speaker units controlled by the
negative impedance drive of the amplifier and resonance
generated between the speaker cabinet volume and port, it
creates more resonant energy (the “air woofer” concept)
than the standard bass reflex method. This allows for bass
Cabinet
High-amplitude
bass sound
reproduction from much smaller cabinets than was
previously possible.
Yamaha’s newly developed Advanced YST II adds many
refinements to Yamaha Active Servo Technology,
allowing better control of the forces driving the amplifier
and speaker. From the amplifier’s point of view, the
speaker impedance changes depending on the sound
frequency. Yamaha developed a new circuit design
combining negative-impedance and constant-current
drives, which provides a more stable performance and
clear bass reproduction without any murkiness.
