Box Contents • Two speakers • One subwoofer • User’s guide Placing Speakers Subwoofer All stereo-encoded information is heard through the satellite speakers. The subwoofer contains no stereo imaging, and its sound is non-directional. As a result, the subwoofer doesn’t have to be placed in any particular relationship to the satellites. However, placing the subwoofer on the floor close to a wall or room corner provides better bass efficiency and optimum sound. Warning: The subwoofer is not magnetically shielded. As such, it SHOULD be placed at least 2 feet (0.6m) from TVs, computer monitors, computer hard drives or any other magnetic media (e.g. floppy disks, Zip disks, computer or audio tapes, etc.). Satellite Speakers Arrange the satellite speakers to suit your listening tastes — from right next to the monitor to as far apart as the speaker cords allow. For optimum sound, satellite speakers should be placed in a left/right configuration, preferably apart and at equal distance from the center of the listening area. This will offer the best stereo imaging and provide the most satisfying results. Note: The satellite speakers ARE magnetically shielded and can be placed close to video displays such as TVs and computer monitors without distorting the image.
