Carefully unpack your speakers as not to damage them by sitting the box on the floor and removing all accessories from inside the box. Use both hands to lift one speaker at a time, taking care not to knock them together or against anything and ensuring the internal bags don’t split or open. Take a good grip of the packaging and ensure jewellery does not scratch or mark the surface
When unpacking a floorstanding speaker it is advisable to either use two people to lift the speaker or carefully roll the speaker box over (once opened) and lift the packaging off.
We recommend that you retain all the original packaging for your loudspeakers in case you need to transport them safely.
With your amplifier turned off, connect speaker cables (not supplied) to the respective Positive (+) and Negative (-) terminals on the back for left & right channel outputs as shown. These are usually colour-coded Red (+) and Black (-). Connect the other end of the cables to the respective +/- terminals on each speaker, the left speaker channel being the one to your left as you face the speakers from your listening position.
Some speaker cables are fitted with 4mm metal pins which can be inserted directly into the terminals, others use spade connectors or bare wire; in which case unscrew the plastic caps (black & red) enough to either slot the spade in place or insert wire through the exposed hole in the brass terminal post. Once in place hand-tighten the plastic caps to ensure a firm connection, being careful to avoid any loose wires which could short-circuit the amplifier.
With wiring connected, turn on the amplifier with volume control set to minimum position, check that the correct source input is selected on the amplifier and begin playing music from your source. Slowly raise the volume to hear the music playing through the speakers, if nothing is heard re-check wiring as instructed previously.
Your loudspeakers may benefit from a period of ‘running-in’. During this time, the stresses in the suspension system will relax and stabilise. Any running in period is dependent on many factors, and time can vary depending on how often and how loud you play your loudspeakers.
For advice on pairing your loudspeakers with other electronics components you should seek advice from your local Acoustic Energy dealer. For cables and interconnects we have partnered with Wireworld cables, more details and your local stockist can be found on the Wireworld website.
Cabinet veneers should be treated like all high-quality furniture. Routine dusting with a soft cloth is recommended. Do not apply any aerosol sprays directly as they could damage the drive units. Dust can be removed by use of a soft brush or other suitable domestic duster.
On some models the delicate high frequency (tweeter) dome is protected by a metal cover, care should be taken not to dislodge the magnetic fixing whilst dusting.
Do not expose the cabinets to damp, widely fluctuating temperatures or direct sunlight as the appearance and performance may suffer. Avoid contact with rough or abrasive surfaces or materials.
When not in use it is recommended to replace the clothe grilles to help prevent accidental damage.
If you require further help, advice or service on your loudspeakers please contact your nearest Acoustic Energy stockist.
