cautions and guidelines.
The seating positions shown in the diagram above are general guidelines for most room types and aren’t dependent on the subwoofer
placement. Sitting closer to the front in a “boomy bass” room may sound better. Sitting closer to the back of a “bass shy” room may
sound better.
Subwoofer Placement Guidelines
REFER to the RECOMMENDED SINGLE SUBWOOFER PLACEMENT diagram above for general seating and subwoofer
placement guidelines.
PLACE in a CORNER (loudest) or within a FEW FEET of a WALL (smoothest).
AVOID locations FAR AWAY from a WALL, CLOSE to the ROOM CENTER, BY a DOOR, NEAR a PARTIAL-HEIGHT WALL,
or BEHIND SEATING ARRANGEMENTS.
FACE the GRILLE TOWARDS the room’s main SEATING location.
MAKE SURE:
• You can access the controls on the rear of the subwoofer.
• The included 6’ power cord for the subwoofer can safely reach a power outlet.
Subwoofer Placement Cautions
PLACE THE SUBWOOFER CABINET ON A STABLE, FLAT AND LEVEL SURFACE. An uneven or unstable surface can cause the
subwoofer to tip over and cause injury or be damaged. Protruding objects from the surface or an uneven surface could cause damage to the
speaker cone on the bottom of the cabinet.
DO NOT CREATE A TRIP HAZARD WITH THE POWER CORDS. Route power cables so that they cannot be tripped on by persons walking
in the room.
DO NOT BLOCK THE SOUND PORT. The sound port is located in the back of the cabinet above the cable connection sockets.
PLACE THE SUBWOOFER ON THE FLOOR. If the subwoofer is placed on a stand, bracket, tripod, table or similar device, it could fall or be
knocked over causing injury to persons or damage to the subwoofer and other items.
KEEP THE SUBWOOFER IN ITS UPRIGHT POSITION.

Connect Subwoofer
1. Use the included power cord to connect the subwoofer to a power outlet.
2. Turn the POWER switch to the ON position. The ACTIVE light should be yellow.
After 12 minutes without receiving a signal, the ACTIVE light turns red to indicate STAND BY mode. The subwoofer will
automatically go from STAND BY mode to ACTIVE when it detects an audio signal.
3. Turn the VOLUME knob to MIN to prevent blasting music when you first use the subwoofer. You can increase the VOLUME to the
correct level later.
4. You’re done. No more wires to connect!
5. Go to the Select Wireless Broadcast Channel instructions next.
Select Wireless Broadcast Channel
The wireless transmitter can broadcast your audio signals on one of four selectable channels. Multiple channels are made available in case
other devices in your home are using some of the channels for communication.
To select the broadcast channel:
1. Review the Wireless Broadcast Considerations below.
2. Use the CHANNEL switch on the back of the wireless transmitter to select “1”, “2”, “3”, or “4” as the broadcast channel.
3. Use the CHANNEL switch on the back of the subwoofer to select the same broadcast channel as you selected on the
wireless transmitter.
4. Go to the Adjust Subwoofer Controls for Listening Preferences instructions next.
Wireless Broadcast Considerations
All wireless devices like the WiC-10 may be susceptible to radio frequency (RF) interference from other devices. Other RF devices include
WiFi Internet access, computer equipment and routers; WiFi solar panel monitoring systems; video game consoles, cordless telephones, blue
tooth devices, baby monitors and microwave ovens. In particular, any devices operating in the 2.4 GHz band may cause intermittent wireless
connections between the wireless transmitter and subwoofer.
To prevent wireless broadcast interference problems, keep wireless devices at least 2’ apart. Any interference effects from a microwave oven
will cease once the oven stops operating and may be resolved on a long-term basis by increasing the physical distance between the
subwoofer and the microwave oven.
If the WiC-10 sound is intermittent, check that another wireless device isn’t within 2’ of either the wireless transmitter or the subwoofer.

Adjust Subwoofer Controls for Listening Preferences
Now it’s time to adjust the subwoofer controls to match your listening environment and preferences.
1. Play some music through your receiver.
2. Turn the subwoofer’s VOLUME to a level that balances with the output volume of your satellite speakers and doesn’t distort the bass
sounds. You might also want to adjust your receiver’s LFE output volume higher, if you can’t get a loud enough subwoofer output, or
lower, if the subwoofer output is too loud.
3. If you didn’t use the LFE INPUT on the wireless transmitter, optionally, adjust the subwoofer’s LOW PASS FREQUENCY to provide a
wireless transmitter input equivalent to an LFE input. The LOW PASS FREQUENCY is the frequency at which the subwoofer’s output
starts to decrease as the frequency increases. Your satellite speakers output the frequencies not covered by the subwoofer. You want
to not be able to hear the transition from the subwoofer output to your satellite speakers’ output. You can adjust this frequency from
between 50 Hz to 200 Hz. To adjust this frequency:
a. If your satellite speakers are small with limited low frequency output, choose a LOW PASS FREQUENCY of between
100 Hz and 120 Hz.
b. If your satellite speakers are larger with better low frequency output, choose a LOW PASS FREQUENCY of around 80 Hz.
c. Adjust the LOW PASS FREQUENCY based on listening to your audio system until it sounds pleasing to your ear.
4. Optionally, switch the subwoofer’s PHASE to 180°. This reverses the phase of the subwoofer to correct for sound cancellations
between your subwoofer and your satellite speakers. To determine which PHASE is best for your room and subwoofer location:
a. Listen to the system with music playing.
b. Ask a friend to switch the PHASE switch from 0° to 180° while you listen for a change in the mid-bass loudness.
c. The correct PHASE is the one that you hear as having louder mid-bass.
d. If you can’t tell a difference, keep the phase at 0°.
5. Go to the Adjust Subwoofer Location for Listening Preferences instructions next.
Adjust Subwoofer Location for Listening Preferences
Optionally, you can now optimize the location of the subwoofer for your listening preferences by either using the “Crawl Test”
or the “Move Test.”
Crawl Test
In this test, the subwoofer stays in one spot and you move around the room to different listening spots. To do the “Crawl Test”:
1. Place the subwoofer on the floor or table near your most often used seating location. Velodyne doesn’t recommend placing the
subwoofer on the actual seating surface. The weight of the subwoofer or its corners could damage the seating surface or structure.
Also, placing the subwoofer on a very soft surface, such as a sofa cushion, will not allow the downward firing speaker cone to extend
out freely without hitting the surface and causing damage to the speaker.
2. Play some music on the audio system.
3. Crawl around to various spots in the room until you hear the best sounding bass output to you. When you hear the best bass output,
you have determined the placement of the subwoofer for your listening preferences.
4. Re-locate the subwoofer from the seating location to the spot you crawled to that sounded the best.
5. You’re done with this best placement test and setting up the subwoofer. Enjoy!
Move Test
In this test, you stay in one listening spot and you move the subwoofer around the room. To do the “Move Test”:
1. Place the subwoofer in a new location in the room.
2. Sit in the seating location you use most often.
3. Play some music on the audio system.
4. Listen to the audio output.
5. Repeat Step 1 through Step 4 until you hear the best sounding bass output to you. When you hear the best bass output, you have
determined the placement of the subwoofer for your listening preferences.
6. You’re done with this best placement test and setting up the subwoofer. Enjoy!

Connect Multiple Wireless Subwoofers
In a Single Audio System
If you are using more than one wireless subwoofer in a single audio system, the following two setup options exist.
OPTION #1: All subwoofers receive the same audio signal. This is the most common setup. For this setup:
1. Connect only one wireless transmitter to your receiver. Follow the instructions for OPTION #1 or OPTION #2 in the
Connect Wireless Transmitter Section.
2. Follow the instructions for SETUP #1 in the Select Receiver Options for Optimal Subwoofer Performance section.
3. Set the same wireless broadcast channel on the wireless transmitter and all subwoofers. Follow the instructions in the
Select Wireless Broadcast Channel section.
4. Follow the instructions in the Adjust Subwoofer Controls section for each subwoofer.
OPTION #2: Subwoofers receive different audio signals. This is a less common setup. Usually, this setup uses one subwoofer for the R audio
channel and one subwoofer for the L audio channel. If using separate R and L channel subwoofers, place each subwoofer within a couple of
feet of the appropriate main speaker for the channel. If the system’s crossover frequency is high, each subwoofer should be even closer to its
channel’s main speaker. For this setup:
1. Connect a wireless transmitter to each signal you want to transmit to a subwoofer. Usually, one for the R and one for the L channel.
Follow instructions for SETUP #2 in the Connect Wireless Transmitter Section, except pair one transmitter’s R input to the R
channel receiver output and the other transmitter’s L channel input to the L channel receiver output.
2. Follow the instructions for OPTION #3 in the Select Receiver Options for Optimal Subwoofer Performance section.
3. Follow the instructions in the Select Wireless Broadcast Channel section, except:
a. Select a unique wireless broadcast channel for each wireless transmitter.
b. Match the wireless broadcast channel on each subwoofer to that of the wireless transmitter that broadcasts the audio signal the
subwoofer is to output.
4. Follow the instructions in the Adjust Subwoofer Controls section for each subwoofer.
In Separate Audio Systems
If you have multiple audio systems in your home, such as one in the family movie room and another in a bedroom or office, you can use a
separate wireless transmitter in each system. In this case, use a different wireless broadcast channel for each system, to avoid the
subwoofers from getting input from multiple systems due to the close proximity of the systems.

Protection Circuitry
The subwoofer is equipped with protection circuitry to provide maximum performance with greatest reliability.
The subwoofer is protected against:
• Overdriving the speaker
• Overdriving the amplifier
• Overheating the amplifier
• Excessive drop in power line voltage
The overdrive protection circuitry operates constantly without being audible under most situations.
If the subwoofer should shut down, reduce the volume setting and shut the subwoofer off until it cools down. The time the subwoofer takes to
cool down depends on the ambient room temperature, but typically at least 10 minutes are required for the subwoofer to cool down and
recover from the thermal shutdown.
Also, plug the unit into a different wall socket. Overloaded sockets or damaged home wiring circuits can cause power voltage drops while the
subwoofer is drawing high power levels. This condition can result in the subwoofer shutting down intermittently.
