Placement of speakers

Speakers are designed identically so that no left or right channel orientation is necessary.

Correct method of use

Remote control signal sensor
Transmission window Notes Keep your speakers at least 10mm (13/32) away from the system for proper ventilation. These speakers do not have magnetic shielding. Do not place them near televisions, personal computers or other devices easily influenced by magnetism. To avoid damage to the speakers, do not touch the speaker cones if you have taken the nets off.
About 7 meters in front of the signal sensor.

Operation notes

Do not place obstacles between the remote control signal sensor and remote control unit. Do not expose the remote control signal sensor to direct sunlight or to the bright light of a fluorescent light. Take care to keep the remote control signal sensor and the end of the remote control unit free from dust. If this system is installed in a rack with glass doors, the glass doors thickness or color might make it necessary to use the remote control unit a shorter distance from the system.

To prevent damage

Never place heavy items on top of the unit. Do not disassemble or reconstruct the unit. Do not spill water or other liquids into the unit.
