Single Point

Surround Sound

Speaker System

Cat. No. 40-5034

Thank you for buying the RadioShack Single Point Surround Sound Speaker System. Your speaker system is specially designed to give you great “full-range”sound quality using only one single satellite speaker and a powered subwoofer. Your satellite speaker contains three2-inch,high compliance, full range speakers that produce excellent sound as the main speaker of your home theater system. All of the speakers are magnetically shielded. Your subwoofer has a 51/4-inchlong excursion woofer and a power amplifier to produce tight,floor-rumblingpowerful bass down to 55 Hz that you can feel as well as hear.

Batteries

Your remote control requires two AAA batteries (not supplied) for power. We recommend RadioShack batteries.

1.Slide the battery compartment cover in the direction of

the arrow to remove it.

2.Place the batteries in the compartment as indicated by the polarity symbols (+ and -).

3.Replace the cover.

When the remote control stops operating properly, replace the batteries.

Battery Notes

Dispose of old batteries promptly and properly.

Do not burn or bury batteries.

Use only fresh batteries of the required size and recommended type.

Do not mix old and new batteries, different types of batteries (standard, alkaline, or rechargeable), or rechargeable batteries of different capacities.

If you do not plan to use the remote for a several weeks, remove the batteries. Batteries can leak chemicals that can damage electronic parts.

Placement

Where and how you position your speaker has a great effect on the overall sound of your Point Source Audio sound system.

Cautions:

Keep the speakers away from heat sources, such as radiators, stoves, or other appliances.

Place your subwoofer at least 2-3feet away from your television or your computer’s disk drive system so the speaker’s magnet won’t distort your TV picture’s color or erase your floppy disks.

Do not place the subwoofer’s metal plate against the floor.

To prevent the cabinets from warping or discoloring, do not place the speakers where they are exposed to direct sunlight or excessive humidity.

Do not place the speakers where they might be knocked over or exposed to falling objects.

Satellite Speaker

For best results, it is recommended that you place the satellite speaker in a location where the front of the satellite speaker is facing the listening area.

Your satellite speaker is magnetically shielded to prevent interference with your television’s picture. It is possible, however, that some interference might occur if the satellite speaker is placed on top of the TV.

If this happens, turn off your TV for 15 – 30 minutes and move the speaker back about 1-inchfrom the front of the TV. Turn on the TV and recheck for interference. Keep moving the satellite speaker back until the interference disappears.

Powered Subwoofer

For maximum bass output, place your subwoofer in a corner on the floor. To reduce output, move it away from corners and back walls, and off the floor. Even slightly moving the subwoofer can have a major effect on bass response.

Connections

You can connect the speaker system to an audio source which has stereo output terminals, such as a DVD player, TV, multimedia PC, video game player, audio component, and more. You can enjoy powerful, clear stereo sound without connecting other elaborate audio systems or speakers.

Note: When the stereo output terminals of a DVD player are used, amulti-channel(such as 5.1 channel) sound source will be down mixed to stereo sound, andtheater-likesound will be heard from the small Single Point satellite speaker and subwoofer.

Cautions:

To avoid any damages to the speaker system, make sure BASS on the subwoofer is turned down before making connections.

To avoid any damage to the speaker system or your audio system, make sure the power of the audio source is turned off before making connections.

Only connect the subwoofer to a power supply of the required type

1.Connect the satellite speaker to the subwoofer with the supplied DIN cable.

2.Plug one end of the supplied stereo patch cable into “A” of the SOURCE L/ R jacks on the back of the subwoofer and the other end into the output of an audio source. You can connect another audio source to “B”. Additional stereo patch cables are available at your local RadioShack store.

3.Connect the power cord to a standard 120 volts/60 Hz AC outlet.

Warning: To prevent electrical shock, do not use this polarized plug with an extension cord receptacle or other outlet unless the blades can be fully inserted, preventing blade exposure.

Operation

Note: Your speaker system automatically turns on and its indicator lights green when it receives signals from your audio source. Your speaker system automatically turns off and its indicator lights red if it does not receive a signal within eight minutes. When you turn the speaker system on, you will hear the sound at a low level. This is merely a safety function and not equipment trouble.

After all connections are made, adjust the subwoofer’s volume control.

1.Rotate BASS counterclockwise to the minimum position.

2.Turn on your audio equipment.

3.Choose the equipment connected to the A/B jacks. WhenSOURCE is out, the equipment connected to “A” is selected. WhenSOURCE is pressed in, the equipment connected to “B” is selected. Play the equipment and adjust its overall volume to a comfortable level.

4.Rotate VOLUME clockwise, a little at a time, until you achieve the adequate satellite volume level.

5.Rotate BASS clockwise, a little at a time, until you achieve a balance of bass between the subwoofer and the satellite.

Using the Remote

To turn the volume up or down, repeatedly press + oron the remote.

Care

Keep the speakers dry; if they get wet, wipe them dry immediately. Use and store the speakers only in normal temperature environments. Handle the speakers carefully; do not drop them. Keep the speakers away from dust and dirt, and wipe them with a damp cloth occasionally to keep them looking new.

Caution: You might permanently damage your speakers by cleaning them with a vacuum cleaner. Use a feather duster or a soft loose cloth instead.

Service & Repair

If your speakers are not performing as they should, take them to your local RadioShack store for assistance. To locate your nearest RadioShack, use the store locator feature on RadioShack’s website (www.radioshack.com), or call 1-800-TheShack(843-7422)and follow the menu options.
