INTRODUCTION Check your system carefully . If it has been damaged in transit, report the damage immediately by calling your Acoustic Research dealer and/or the trucking firm that delivered it. Observe all warnings and cautions. W ARNING To prevent fire or shock hazard, DO NOT EXPOSE this subwoofer system to rain or excessive moisture. We recommend that you not operate your speakers or subwoofer with the bass, treble and loudness controls set to full boost. This will place undue strain on the electronics and speakers and could damage them. Whenever changing cables, pulling plugs, etc., AL WAYS TURN OFF ALL EQUIPMENT including the Subwoofer . This prevents transients from enter- ing the speakers and prevents elec- trical energy from reaching you. Keep all connections out of the reach of children. To avoid electrical shock, DO NOT OPEN THE SUBWOOFER! There are no user serviceable parts inside. CAUTION RISK OF ELECTRICAL SHOCK DO NOT OPEN WARNING: SHOCK HAZARD - DO NOT OPEN AVIS: RISQUE DE CHOC ELECTRIQUE - NE P AS OUVRIR. CAUTION: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK, DO NOT REMOVE THE COVER. NO USER SERVICEABLE P ARTS INSIDE. REFER SERVICING TO QUALIFIED SERVICE PERSONNEL. The lightning flash with arrowhead symbol, within an equilateral triangle, is intended to alert the user to the presence of uninsulated -dangerous voltage- within the product- s enclosure that may be of sufficient magnitude to constitute a risk of electrical shock to persons. The exclamation point within an equilateral triangle is intended to alert the user to the presence of important operating and maintenance (servicing) instructions in the literature accompanying the product.

Your Acoustic Research Subwoofer delivers powerful, deep bass sound output for a natural, life-like sonic experience. Please follow the direc- tions in this manual to achieve the best performance from your system. The hook-up and operation of the Subwoofer is the same for a Home Theater surround sound system or a stereo music system. The Subwoofer has its own built-in amplifier, so it works with any sound system. The Subwoofer-s own crossover network sends bass-only signals to the Subwoofer-s built-in amplifier. This lets the Subwoofer add extra bass to the output from your other speakers. For simplicity, we call your Home Theater system-s or music system-s main speakers the Front speakers. We call your AV receiver, stereo receiver, or integrated amplifier the Receiver. PLACEMENT Your Acoustic Research Subwoofer must sit on the floor, in a corner to work properly. The floor and corner are actually a part of the Subwoofer-s design. Your AR subwoofer should be placed on the floor.You should be aware that the closer the subwoofer is placed to the wall,the more pro- nounced the bass will become,with maximum bass being achieved with the subwoofer being placed in a corner. To optimize you system's electronic components,try and keep all speaker wire and cables as short as possible. SUBWOOFER CONTROLS & CONNECTIONS POWER CORD Plug the power cord into an AC wall outlet or other AC outlet capable of supplying at least 400 Watts. POWER SWITCH Turns the AC supply com- pletely OFF or sets the Subwoofer to AUTO ON operation. In AUTO ON, the Subwoofer is in standby mode until it detects an audio signal input, then the Subwoofer turns on automati- cally. A few minutes after audio input signals cease, the Subwoofer automatically returns to standby mode. POWER INDICATOR LEDYour AR Subwoofer has 2 LED indicators. The Power LED indicator is located on the amplifier on the rear. This LED is unlit when the AC power switch is OFF. It glows red when the Subwoofer is in standby mode and green when the Subwoofer is on. The Signal indicator LED is Blue and is located next to the AR logo on the front of the sub- woofer. This LED is lit when there is an audio signal present. FUSE 250V 3AThis fuse protects against internal and external faults. If the POWER switch is ON and the power indi- cator LED is unlit, unplug the power cord from the AC outlet and check the fuse by unscrewing the center piece from the holder. IMPORTANT If the fuse is blown, replace it only with a fuse of the same type and cur- rent rating. L, R SPEAKER-IN TERMINALS- See Connection Option 1 These terminals are for making connections using speaker wire. If you use this option, do not use Option 2. L, R LINE IN and OUT Jacks- See Connection Option 2 These jacks are for input and output connections using audio cables. If you use this option, do not use Option 1. LFE INPUT JACK Allows direct connection from an amplifier/proces- sor with an internal low pass filter. This connection bypasses the sub- woofer's internal crossover circuitry. Use only with appropriate Surround Sound processor/amplifier. LFE Output Jack This connector is connected internally to the LFE input jack and allows you to loop the LFE input signal out to another LFE input on an additional AR powered loudspeaker or subwoofer.LOW PASS FREQUENCY CONTROL Adjusts the upper frequency limit for audio signals going to the Subwoofer amplifier. This control helps you adjust the system-s tonal balance. LEVEL CONTROL Balances the loudness of the Subwoofer relative to the Front speakers and compensates for room effects on the Subwoofer-s output. PHASE SWITCHThe Phase Switch controls the phase of the Subwoofer-s output relative to the front speakers. Listen carefully to the sound quality while playing a CD with low bass. Select the position of the switch that produces the fullest deep bass without boominess. You may need to readjust the Level and Low Pass Frequency controls after setting the Phase Switch. CONNECTING YOUR SUBWOOFER IMPORTANT When you make connections. make sure that the power switches of all components, including the Subwoofer, are OFF. AUDIO CABLESIf you are connecting the Subwoofer into a system made up of separate components (preamp & power amps), you will need audio cables long enough to reach the Subwoofer from the preamplifier and the power amplifier. SPEAKER WIRETypical speaker wire has a pair of separate conductors with insulating jackets that are molded together. We recommend that you use 16-gauge speaker wire for hooking your Receiver to your Front speakers. To make connections to the Subwoofer in parallel with the Front speakers easier, the speaker wire connecting the Receiver to the Subwoofer can be smaller (higher gauge number), since the Subwoofer does not draw large amounts of power through these wires. POLARITY All speakers in a system must be connected with the same polarity. Speaker wire is marked for polarity so that you can identify which wire in the pair is which. Polarity is shown by a color strip on the insulation, by ridged molded into the insulation, or by the colors of the wires - one copper and one silver. Strip the insulation from speaker wire ends to reveal the bare conductors before connecting to Receiver, Subwoofer or Speaker terminals. IMPORTANT Always connect the red + terminal on the Receiver to the red + terminal on the Subwoofer, and the black - terminal on the Receiver to the black - terminal on the Subwoofer. The same is true for hooking the Receiver outputs to the Front speakers: red + to red +, and black- to black-. IMPORTANT USE OPTION 1 OR OPTION 2, NOT BOTH . OPTION 1 - CONNECTION WITH SPEAKER WIRE Connect speaker wires from the Receiver-s front left and right speaker outputs to the subwoofer-s left and right Speaker In terminals, as well as the left and right front speakers SPEAKER LEVEL INLINE OUT LPHASE 180°LOW PASS FREQUENCY 0° IN L RR +- LFE IN OUT 50HZ 150HZ LEVEL MIN MAX RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK DO NOT OPEN WARNING: SHOCK HAZARD-DO NOT OPEN AVIS: RISQUE DE CHOC ELETRIQUE-NE PAS OUVRIRCAUTION !
