THANK YOU
Thank you for your purchase of the KLIPSCH ®Group WA-2 Wireless
Subwoofer Kit. The WA-2 will only operate with select KLIPSCH ®,
ENERGY®, MIRAGE®and JAMQ®brand subwoofers that have a
"WA Port" input on the back of the amplifier panel (refer to your
subwoofer owner's manual). The WA-2 is a 2.4 GHz product designed
to wirelessly transmit a signal up to a 50 foot (15m) radius.*

SETUP
1.

3.
Decide where the subwoofer will go (refer to your subwoofer owner's manual).
Most receivers (and pre-amps) have a line level subwoofer output labeled
Subwoofer Pre Out, Sub Out, SW Out, etc. If you have this connection, use
one of the two male jacks on one end of the supplied audio cable to plug
into that output, then use the corresponding (same color) jack on the opposite end of the cable and plug into the WA-2 transmitter input "8" (labeled
"Left/LFE"). In absence of a subwoofer output use both male jacks on one
end of the cable and connect the left and right channel pre-amp outputs
from your receiver (if provided) (not tape outs) to "8" (labeled "Left/LFE")
and "D" (labeled "Right") inputs on the WA-2 transmitter.
Connect the cable from the WA-2 receiver to the "WA Port" on the
back of the subwoofer.

Plug supplied power supply cable into "E" on the WA-2 transmitter and
plug other end into an AC wall outlet.
Check to make sure Gain Switch "A" is in middle position (OdB). This position best matches the output voltage of most receivers and processors.
Turn receiver/pre-amplifier on.
Turn subwoofer to "On" or "Auto On" position.
The WA-2 transmitter and receiver should be automatically "paired" with
their red LED's ("C") on solid, and the subwoofer should now be operational.
Some subwoofers have two screws on back that will attach to keyholes
("H") on the back of the receiver box. For subwoofers that do not
(JAMO SUB 800, ENERGY ESW-M6 & ESW-M8, MIRAGE MM-6 &
MM-8), you can use the supplied hook and loop strips to attach the
WA-2 receiver to the back of subwoofer. Attach the receiver to these
subwoofers on the back at the top left-hand corner of the subwoofer
("I"). It is recommended that you clean the area on the subwoofer and
transmitter with rubbing alcohol before attaching the strips.

TROUBLESHOOTING
•
If the subwoofer does not operate and the red LED's ("C") are flashing
on the WA-2 transmitter and receiver, a simple "pairing" is needed.
Push and hold in button "F" on the transmitter while pushing and holding button "G" on the receiver and keep pushed until both LED's stop
flashing and glow solid (approximately five seconds).
• Since the WA-2 is a wireless device, it may encounter RF interference
from other wireless devices in the same area. If there is difficulty "pairing" the transmitter and receiver, or their signal connection fades, you
may need to move them closer together and/or farther away from other
wireless products. If other wireless devices in the area have a manual
channel selection option, you can also select a different channel for
their operation to help eliminate interference with the WA-2.
•
If you do not get a signal, or get a low level audio signal from the
subwoofer, make sure the subwoofer out level control on your surround
receiver is set correctly (usually at the halfway point sometimes labeled
"OdB"). If your subwoofer out level on your surround receiver is correct,
and you have adjusted the subwoofer volume level and the signal is
still too low, move the gain control "A" to the right (+12dB) to increase
the signal to the subwoofer. If the signal is too high, move the gain
control to the left (-12dB) to reduce signal strength.
