READ INSTRUCTIONS All safety and operating instructions should be read before the FPS1500 amplified subwoofer/ satellite system is operated. RETAIN INSTRUCTIONS The safety and operating instructions should be retained for future reference. HEED WARNINGS All warnings on the subwoofer and in the operating instructions should be adhered to. FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS All operating and use instructions should be followed. CLEANING Unplug the subwoofer from the wall outlet or other power source before cleaning. Do not use liquid cleaners or aerosol cleaners. Use a damp cloth for cleaning. ATTACHMENTS Do not use attachments not recommended by Cambridge SoundWorks as they may cause hazards. WATER AND MOISTURE Do not use the subwoofer near water, for example, near a bath tub, wash bowl, kitchen sink, or laundry tub; in a wet basement; or near a swimming pool. ACCESSORIES Do not place the FPS1500 system on an unstable cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table. The subwoofer or satellites may fall, causing serious injury to a person, and serious damage to the product. Use only with a cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table recommended by Cambridge SoundWorks, or sold with the product. Any mounting of the satellites or subwoofer should follow the manufacturers instructions, and should use a mounting accessory recommended by Cambridge SoundWorks.
VENTILATION Slots and openings in the cabinet are provided for ventilation, to ensure reliable operation of the subwoofer and to prevent it from overheating; and these openings must not be blocked or covered. The openings should never be blocked by placing the product on a bed, sofa, rug, or other similar surface. The subwoofer should not be placed in a built-in installation such as a bookcase or rack unless proper ventilation is provided or Cambridge SoundWorks instructions have been adhered to. HEAT The subwoofer should be situated away from heat sources such as radiators, heat registers, stoves, and other products (including amplifiers) that produce heat. POWER SOURCES The subwoofer should be operated only from the type of power source indicated on the marking label. If you are not sure of the type of power supply to your home, consult your product dealer or local power company. For products intended to operate from battery power or other sources, refer to the operating instructions. POLARIZATION The subwoofer may be equipped with a polarized alternatingcurrent line plug (a plug having one blade wider than the other). This plug will fit into the power outlet only one way. This is a safety feature. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug. If the plug should still fail to fit, contact your electrician to replace your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized plug.

POWER-CORD PROTECTION Powersupply cords should be routed so that they are not likely to be walked on or pinched by items placed upon or against them, paying particular attention to cords at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point where they exit from the subwoofer. LIGHTNING Unplug the FPS1500 system during a lightning storm, or when it is left unattended and unused for long periods of time. This will prevent damage to the subwoofer due to lightning and power-line surges. OVERLOADING Do not overload wall outlets, extension cords, or integral convenience receptacles as this can result in a risk of fire or electric shock. OBJECT AND LIQUID ENTRY Never push objects of any kind into the subwoofer through openings as they may touch dangerous voltage points or short out parts that could result in a fire or electric shock. Never spill liquid of any kind on the subwoofer. SERVICING Do not attempt to service the subwoofer yourself as opening or removing covers may expose you to dangerous voltage or other hazards. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel. DAMAGE REQUIRING SERVICE Unplug the subwoofer from the wall outlet or other power source and refer servicing to qualified service personnel under the following conditions:
a) When the power-supply cord or plug is damaged. b) If liquid has been spilled, or an object has fallen into the subwoofer. c) If the subwoofer has been exposed to rain or water. d) If the subwoofer does not operate normally by following the operating instructions; or exhibits a distinct change in performance. e) If the product has been dropped or damaged in any way. REPLACEMENT PARTS When replacement parts are required, be sure the service technician has used replacement parts specified by Cambridge SoundWorks or have the same characteristics as the original part. Unauthorized substitutions may result in fire, electric shock, or other hazards. SAFETY CHECK Upon completion of any service or repairs to the FPS1500 system, ask the service technician to perform safety checks to determine that the FPS1500 system is in proper operating condition.

Volume Control

FPS1500.fm Page 7 Monday, July 10, 2000 3:47 PM

FPS1500 has high input sensitivity, so it may amplify the hum and hiss inherent in some audio program sources. This noise is not due to a fault in the speaker system. You can minimize this background noise by following these guidelines: Decide which volume control you would like to use as the master level control: the FPS1500 volume control or the program sources volume control. If you choose to use the FPS1500 volume control, first set the program sources volume control high (at least 70% of the maximum level). Where there is more than one software level control, set all volume controls high. Then leave the controls. Use the FPS1500 volume control to adjust overall output.
If you choose to use the program sources volume control, first set the program sources volume control high (at least 70% of the maximum level). Then adjust the FPS1500 volume control until the distortion is inaudible. Set the FPS1500 volume control aside. Use instead the program sources volume control to adjust overall output. Adjust the output control of your audio card until the noise disappears. This may require trial and error.
