Speaker Setup:

SR-8080BP Crossover Of 80Hz
SR-8060BP Crossover 011 OOHz
VERY IMPORTANT:
For use as rear surround speakers, position
the speakers approximately 6' (2 m) high
and 6' (2 m) apart directly behind the listening area.
For use as side surround speakers, position
the speakers approximatelly 6' (2 m) high
and directly beside or 1-2' (30-60 an)
behind the listening area.
Do not use your receiver's auto setup function!!! The Bipolar
nature of this speaker will often confuse the receiver's auto
setup.
Dolby Digital and DIS multi-channel systems have critical channel balance
and speaker setup procedures which must be followed if the system is to
perform properly. Consult your receiver's or processor's manual to learn how
to access your system setup menus. Set speaker setup to "small" and crossover
to 80Hz for the SR-8080BP and 100Hz for the SR-8060BP.

Troubleshooting
If you experience any difficulties with your SR Series loudspeakers, try the
suggestions below. If you still have problems, contact your Definitive
Technology Authorized Dealer for assistance.

IdentifY markings on wire and assign +/-.

nected to the receiver or amplifier + to +
and - to-.
1. Audible distortion when the speakers are playing at loud levels is
caused by driving (turning up) your receiver or amplifier louder than it or
the speakers are capable of playing. Most receivers and amplifiers put out
their full-rated power well before the volume control is turned all the
way up, so the position of the volume control is a poor indicator of its
power limit. If your speakers distort when you play them loud, turn the
volume down!
2. If you experience a lack of bass, it is likely that one speaker is out of
phase with the other and needs to be rewired paying closer attention to
connect positive to positive and negative to negative on both channels.
Most speaker wire has some indicator (such as color-coding, ribbing or
writing) on one of the two conductors to help you maintain consistency.
It is essential to connect both speakers to the amplifier in the same way
(in phase).
3. Make sure all your system interconnects are solidly in place.
4. Check that no foreign objects or liquid has entered the speaker cabinet.
