Acoustat speakers are designed topreserve thecorrect absolute phase throughout the system, including
final coupling of the signal to the air. This ensures that both vocalists and instruments will sound
natural as possible. Phasing depends on the correct connections from the interface. Be sure these
connections are correctly oriented, I.e. red (+) to red, and black (-) to black.
Electrostatic speakers produce a strong electric field which can influence the operation of any low level
electronic circuitry in close proximity This can result in feedback
well above the audio spectrum, which
has the effect of power dissipation and decreased headroom in the system.
For this reason the
turntable/cartridge leads and
the phono lnputs of the preampilfier should be kept at least sixtoeightfeet
from the nearest speaker to ensure that no feedback can occur.
WARNING! DO NOT apply audio signal
to the interface wlth the AC Power removed, hence no panel bias!
to switched outlets is not recommended. DO NOT exceed fuse ratings or bypass fuse
of the above conditions will result in damage to the low frequency transformer if the
Is overdriven. requiring an expensive repair not covered by,the warranty.
Speaker cloth may be cleaned with any commercial cleaning fluid, or anycleaner designed to be used
with polyester knit
fabrics. Use a cleaner such as K2R for small concentrated spots.
REMOVAL OF INTERFACE FOR MODELS TWO/M & THREE/M
WARNING ALWAYS UNPLUG THE LINECORD BEFORE REMOV NG THE INTERFACE!
If the interface must be removed from the speaker, the following procedure
isnecessary to discharge the
1, UNPLUG the interface from the AC outlet and dlsconnect the speaker leads from the amplifier.
2. CAREFULLY, lay the speaker on the floor. DROPPING IT CAN RESULT IN DAMAGE!
3. Unbolt the interface.
4. Set the interface on the floor behind the speaker, king careful not to unplug the three wire groups
from the speaker
5. Remove the center RED pin plug. Hold the wlre an Inch behind the pin and GENTLY pull. DO NOT
