caused by improper placement or installation of speakers.
This unit 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
this unit away from the TV set.
This unit is not disconnected from the AC power source
as long as it is connected to the wall outlet, even if this
unit itself is turned off. In this state, this unit is designed
to consume a very small quantity of power.

IMPORTANT:
THE WIRES IN MAINS LEAD ARE COLOURED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE FOLLOWING CODE:
Blue: NEUTRAL
Brown: LIVE
As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this apparatus may not correspond with the coloured markings
identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as follows: The wire which is coloured BLUE must be connected to
the terminal which is marked with the letter N or coloured BLACK. The wire which is coloured BROWN must be
connected to the terminal which is marked with the letter L or coloured RED. Making sure that neither core is
connected to the earth terminal of the three pin plug.
FEATURES
• This subwoofer system employs Advanced Yamaha
Active Servo Technology II, which Yamaha has
developed for reproducing higher quality super-bass
sound (refer to page 15 for details on Advanced Yamaha
Active Servo Technology II). This super-bass sound
adds a more realistic, theater-in-the-home effect to your
stereo system.
• This subwoofer can be easily added to your existing
audio system by connecting to either the speaker
terminals or the line output (pin jack) terminals of the
amplifier.
• For the effective use of the subwoofer, the subwoofer’s
super-bass sound should be matched to the sounds of
your main speakers. You can create the best sound
quality for various listening conditions by using the
HIGH CUT control and the PHASE switch.
• The Automatic power-switching function saves you the
trouble of pressing the STANDBY/ON button to turn the
power on and off.
• This subwoofer system is equipped with a linear port
unique to Yamaha that provides smooth bass response
during playback, minimizing extraneous noise not
included in the original input signal.

SUPPLIED ACCESSORIES
After unpacking, check that the following parts are
contained.
Non-skid pads (1 set: 4 pieces)
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 main speaker (see
A). If using two subwoofers, it is recommended to place
them on the outside of each main speaker (see B). The
placement shown in C is also possible, however, if the
subwoofer system is placed directly facing the wall, the
bass effect may die 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 A or B.
B
Note
There may be a case that you cannot obtain enough
super-bass 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.

- HIGH: If this function does not operate with AUTO STANDBY switch set to LOW, select this position so that the
subwoofer detects input signals with a lower level and switches the power on automatically.
- OFF: Select this position to deactivate this function, for example, when the subwoofer switches the power on
unexpectedly by sensing noises from other appliances.
Notes
• This function does not operate when the POWER switch is set to the OFF position, or when you manually set the
subwoofer to the standby mode by pressing the STANDBY/ON switch.
• Noise received from other appliances may extend the time period before the subwoofer places itself in the standby
mode to more than 8 minutes.

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.
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.
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 bass
reproduction from much smaller cabinets than before.
