Use with a TV set
In general, Braun tubes used for color television sets, etc. are
extremely sensitive and can be affected even by the magnetism of
the earth. If a speaker system is used near them, therefore, discol-
oration or distortion of pictures will occur. To allow use with color
television sets, etc., this speaker system is provided with magnetic
Even so, discoloration may still result, depending on the installation
environment. If discoloration occurs, turn off the power of the
television set, wait for 15 to 30 minutes and then turn it on again.
This activates the self-demagnetizing function of the television set,
improving the display condition. If discoloration persists even after
performing this remedy, move the speaker apart from the television
set. Discoloration may also be caused when a magnet or other
magnetizing object exists near the television because of the
The sound quality a speaker system reproduces varies greatly
depending on the construction and area of the room where it is
installed, as well as the location and size of the furniture. For better-
quality sound, observe the following precautions.
Avoid placing the speaker system on an elevated object such as
on concrete blocks. Instead, place it on a rigid floor surface with
minimal vibration. Also note that high-quality bass cannot be
obtained if the speaker system is unstably positioned. Generally
speaking, placing the speaker system on several small-diameter
supports results in better bass than placing it directly on the
installation surface. Moreover, if you feel the bass reproduced by
the system is too weak, move the speaker system closer to the
wall behind it. You can thus control the strength of the repro-
duced bass by the position of the speakers.
However, this speaker systems has a bass-reflex port on its rear
face. When you space the speakers, be sure to provide a
clearance of 5 cm or greater behind the speakers.
In many rooms, the furniture and wall affect the reproduced
sound quality. For stereo sound reproduction, placing the Right
and Left speakers in the same condition produces the best
results. If they are placed in extremely different conditions, the
Right- and Left-channel balance will be adversely affected.
The ideal placement of the speaker system is as follows:
Imagine an equilateral triangle and position the Right and Left
speakers on both ends of the base. The ideal listening position is
at or slightly to the rear of the triangle apex.
Glazed doors or surrounding walls in front of the speaker system
may cause the resonance of specific frequency ranges due to
reflected sound. To eliminate this resonance, place some sound-
absorbing material such as a thick curtain in front of the doors or
Attaching and detaching the speaker grilles
This speaker system uses detachable grilles. Use the following
method to attach or detach the grilles.
1. While holding the bottom edge of the speaker grille with your
both hands, pull it gently toward you to remove the bottom of
2. In the same way, gently pull the upper edge of the speaker
grille toward you to remove it from the main unit.
3. To replace the grill, push the projections at the corners into
the grille plug holes on the speaker cabinet.
Your Onkyo speakers are finished with a very high quality
polymer laminate covering that serves to protect the wood
Wipe the cabinet periodically with a dry, silicon-embedded or
plain soft cloth.
The covering may be cleaned with a soft cloth moistened with
water and a mild soap. Avoid the use of furniture polishes or
Use a soft brush or hand vacuum cleaner to remove dust and
lint from the grille material.
