(Sencore is a world famous manufacturer of electronic test and measurement equipment. We strongly support the use of this caliber of equipment in the setup of home surround sound systems). Please take a moment to go over its contents before proceeding with your system’s setup. The disc includes room mode calculators, explanations of how sound spreads in a room, information about home theater setup, a glossary, and even an explanation of how standing waves “set up” in rooms. Most importantly, there are test tones on the disc intended to be used to set the equalizer awoofer level in your system.

(page 11-12) WIDTH EQ control Selects how wide a range of frequencies will be adjusted by the parametric equalizer. (page 11-12) ATTENUATION EQ control Reduces the subwoofer’s output at those frequencies selected by the parametric equalizer.

Use the THRU jack to “daisy-chain” to other devices. (page 9) EXT IR Receiver Connector Use the EXT IR RCVR input powered port to connect to a 3-wire 12 volt IR receiver module (xantech,ect.) when the preamplifier is not in line-of-sight with the remote control. Use the OUT TO SLAVE jack to pass on the received signal to other equipment. Low Level jacks Use the input jack to connect to the "subwoofer" or "LFE line out" from your processor/receiver. Use the output jack to connect to your subwoofer's input. Use the XLR-type balanced connectors, if possible, to obtain lowest noise and hum. AC Input Use the included AC adapter to connect your preamplifier to a wall outlet.
