The speaker units in this speaker system are magnetically shielded.
However, colours may blur if the speakers are positioned too close to a
television screen. If this happens, switch off the television and switch it
back on again after 15 min to 30 min. If the problem persists, move the
speakers away from the television set.
Thank you for buying this PIONEER product.
Read the Instruction Manual carefully before using this speaker system so that
you can operate it properly. After you have finished, put this manual away in a
safe place for future reference.
The rated impedance of this speaker system is 6
. It must be connected to a
amplifier which accepts this type of load (miminum and maximum impedances
accepted by the amplifier are generally indicated near the loudspeaker outlets:
for example "4
" or "6
To guard against damage to this speaker system due to an electric power
overload, take the following precautions:
Do not supply more than the maximum permitted power to the speaker
system (see Specifications).
Any connection or switching on or off of part of the audio system (CD
player, tuner etc.) must be carried out after switching off the amplifier or at
least with the loudspeaker outlets disconnected (if the amplifier allows).
Interference caused by these operations will otherwise reach the speaker
and may damage the treble loudspeaker units.
When boosting particular frequencies using a graphic equaliser or bass
and treble correctors, make sure that you do not increase the amplifier
volume excessively, as the speaker will be overloaded more quickly.
Do not force a low-power amplifier to produce a high level of sound as
harmonic distortion increases rapidly in this situation and may pose a
danger to the treble speaker units.
Avoid touching the diaphragms and suspensions of speakers units as they are
Switch off the amplifier power supply (OFF).
Connect the cables to the input terminals on the rear of the speaker: Connect
the neutral cable to the
terminal and the live cable to the
terminal. Do not
forget that the red input terminal has positive polarity and that the black input
terminal has negative polarity.
Check that the cables are securely connected to the terminals. A loose
connection may cause not just intermittent or distorted sound but short-circuiting
and breakdown of the amplifier.
If the cables of one of the speakers have been connected with the wrong
polarities, you will find when listening to a stereo recording that bass sounds are
weakened and the stereo effect normally obtained between the two speakers
does not exist.
Connect the cables to the loudspeaker outlet terminals of the amplifier. Connect
the live cable to the
terminal and the neutral cable to the

ADVICES AND PRECAUTIONS :
For optimum sound reproduction of high frequencies, the treble speaker units
must be at the same height as the listener's ears.
For low frequencies, it is possible to increase the level of bass sounds by
positioning the speakers close to a wall (the maximum increase being obtained
for a position in a corner of the listening room).
In order to minimize the transmission of vibrations from the speaker to the floor,
PIONEER offers two possibilities :
4 metal decoupling spikes to be screwed under the base. If desired
(especially with polished wood floors), you can also employ the 4
provided metal bases between the 4 decoupling spikes and the floor.
4 foam cushions to be stuck on the underside of the base.
It is advisable to place this speaker above or below the television set. The form of
the base makes it possible to precisely direct the sound of the central channel
towards the listener.
Do not install the speakers close to an oven or heating appliance. Avoid
exposing them to direct sunlight. High temperatures can distort the structure of
the enclosure and adversely affect the sound.
This speaker system is heavy and fragile, and it is therefore dangerous to
install it in an unstable position.
CAUTION : INSTALLATION
Do not place the speaker on an unstable surface. It could present a hazard if it
falls, as well as damaging the equipment. If placing the speaker on a thick
carpet, we recommend using the supplied speaker spikes for stability.
Switch off and unplug your AV equipment and consult the instructions when
connecting up components. Make sure you use the correct connecting cables.
Do not put a TV or other AV equipment on top of this speaker. It could present a
hazard if it falls, as well as damaging the equipment.
Do not install your speakers overhead on the ceiling or wall. If improperly
attached, the speaker grille can fall and cause damage or personal injury.
Do not attach these speakers to the wall or ceiling. They may fall off and cause
CAUTION : IN USE
Do not use the speaker to output distorted sound for long periods of times. This
can result in a fire hazard.
Do not sit or stand on the speaker, or let children play on the speaker.
Do not put large or heavy objects on top of the speaker.
