PREPARATION

Important:

Complete all connections to the CD-3319before you connect it to power.

Be sure to follow all of the installation instructions described in the enclosed “Important Safety Instructions.”

Place the speakers so the distance between them is the same as the distance between the listening area and a point halfway between the speakers. If the distance between the speakers is greater, you can improve the stereo effect by angling the speakers in toward the listening area.

CONNECTING THE

SPEAKERS

Attaching the Speakers

To attach the supplied speakers to the CD-3319,slide each speaker down into the grooves on each side of theCD-3319until it clicks.

To detach each speaker, press and hold the speaker’s locking latch away from the CD-3319,then lift the speaker straight up.

To increase the bass effect, place the speakers in corners, against the wall, or directly on the floor. To decrease the bass effect, move the speakers slightly away from the wall, or raise them 6 or more inches off the floor. You can purchase speaker stands at your local Radio Shack store.

Note: If you want to connect speakers other than the supplied ones, use speakers with an impedance of 4 ohms.

Connecting the Speaker

Wires

Follow these steps to connect the speaker wires to the CD-3319.

1.Unwind as much speaker wire as you need from the back of each speaker, then slide the wire through one of the slots on the back of each speaker to hold it in place.

2.Insert the left speaker’s plug into SPEAKER Lon the back of the CD-3319, then insert the right plug into SPEAKER R.

Note: Be sure to match the positive side of the plug to the positive side of the terminal, and the negative side to the negative.

CONNECTING AN

AUXILIARY AUDIO

SOURCE

To connect an auxiliary audio source to your CD-3319,such as a TV or VCR, plug the audio source’s left and right line level audio wires intoAUX L (left) andAUX R (right).

Set FUNCTION toAUX to select and listen to an auxiliary audio source.

6

14-543.fmPage 7 Wednesday, June 30, 1999 3:52 PM

CONNECTING POWER

You can power the CD-3319from any of the following:

AC power using the supplied AC power cord

Nine D batteries (not supplied)

Vehicle battery power using a DC- to-ACinverter (not supplied)

Using AC Power

To power the CD-3319from standard AC power, plug the supplied AC power cord into theAC IN~ jack, then plug the other end into a standard AC outlet.

Caution: The supplied AC power cord has a polarized plug that fits into the outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit properly, turn it over and try again. Do not force it.

Note: TheCD-3319automatically disconnects internal batteries when you connect the AC power cord.

Using Batteries

You can power the CD-3319from nine D batteries (not supplied). For the best results, we recommend alkaline batteries (such as Radio Shack Cat. No. 23550).

1.Press the two latches on the battery compartment cover and pull out the cover to remove it.

2.Place the nine D batteries in the compartment as indicated by the polarity symbols (+ and –)marked next to the battery compartment.

Cautions:

Use only fresh batteries of the required size and type.

Never mix old with new batteries.

If you do not plan to use the batteries in the CD-3319for a month or more, remove the batteries to protect theCD-3319from possible battery leakage.

7

14-543.fmPage 8 Wednesday, June 30, 1999 3:52 PM

3.Replace the battery compartment cover.

Cautions:

If the CD-3319does not operate properly or if the sound weakens or distorts, replace the batteries.

Always dispose of the old batteries promptly and properly.

Never leave dead, old, or weak batteries in the CD-3319.They can leak chemicals and corrode or damage electronic circuits.

Using Your Vehicle’s Battery

You can power the CD-3319from your vehicle’s battery using aDC-to-AC inverter (Cat. No.22-132,not supplied).

Cautions:

To protect your vehicle’s electrical system, always plug the AC power cord into AC IN~ and the inverter before you plug the inverter into the cigarette lighter socket. Always turn off the inverter and unplug it from the cigarette lighter socket before you unplug the AC power cord fromAC IN~ and the inverter.

The recommended inverter supplies 120 volts AC power and delivers at least 315 milliamps. Using an inverter that does not

8

meet these specifications could damage the CD-3319.

1.Plug the supplied power cord into the AC IN~ jack on the back of theCD-3319.

2.Plug the AC power cord into the power inverter’s AC jack.

3.Plug the power inverter into your vehicle’s cigarette lighter socket.

4.Turn on the power inverter.

Note: If theCD-3319does not operate properly when you use the inverter, unplug the inverter from the cigarette lighter socket and clean the socket to remove ashes and debris. Also, check the AC power cord for proper connection. If it still does not operate properly, check the fuse in the inverter.

14-543.fmPage 9 Wednesday, June 30, 1999 3:52 PM

USING HEADPHONES

For private listening, you can connect a pair of stereo headphones (not supplied) with a 1/8-inchplug. Your local Radio Shack store carries a wide selection of stereo headphones.

To connect the headphones, insert the headphones’ 1/8-inchplug into the

PHONES jack.

Note: Connecting headphones automatically disconnects thebuilt-inspeaker.

Listening Safely

To protect your hearing, follow these guidelines when you use headphones.

Set the volume to the lowest setting before you begin listening. After you begin listening, adjust the volume to a comfortable level.

Do not listen at extremely high volume levels. Extended highvolume listening can lead to permanent hearing loss.

Once you set the volume, do not increase it. Over time, your ears adapt to the volume level, so a volume level that does not cause discomfort might still damage your hearing.

Traffic Safety

Do not wear headphones while operating a motor vehicle or riding a bicycle. This can create a traffic hazard and is illegal in some areas.

Even though some headphones are designed to let you hear some outside sounds when listening at normal volume levels, they still present a traffic hazard.
