PRO-CSW100010" Car Subwoofer

Your RadioShack PRO-CSW100010" Car Subwoofer lets you increase the bass response of your vehicle’s sound system. When mounted inside an enclosure, yoursub-woofer’shigh-output,low-distortiondesign provides quality, bass sound reproduction. The subwoofer’s longtravel voice coil lets it handle high input power with ease.

ENCLOSURE SIZES

After you choose an enclosure type for your subwoofer, for the best results, build the enclosure to the dimensions recommended in this section.

Note: To connect the subwoofer to your stereo amplifier’s wires, you need 2 banana plugs such as Cat. No. 278306 (not supplied).

CHOOSING AN ENCLOSURE

To get the best performance from your subwoofer, you must mount it inside an enclosure. An enclosure makes your subwoofer more efficient and improves its sound quality.

Some common enclosure designs are:

Acoustic suspension (sealed)

Ported reflex (vented)

Single reflex bandpass (vented)

For more information about a single reflex bandpass enclosure, see “Single Reflex Bandpass (vented)” on Page 2.

To learn more about and build an acoustic suspension or ported reflex enclosure, we recommend you use the book Building Speaker Systems (Cat. No.62-1087A,available at your local RadioShack store) along with this Owner’s Manual. That book has complete information about building enclosures, including obtaining construction materials, and design and construction tips.

Note: Check with RadioShack Unlimited for apre-builtenclosure for this subwoofer.

A single reflex bandpass enclosure combines the features of acoustic suspension and ported reflex designs. In this type of enclosure, one side of the subwoofer is mounted in an acoustic suspension enclosure, while the other side is mounted in a ported reflex enclosure.

A single reflex bandpass enclosure controls the movement of the speaker’s cone at low frequencies (like an acoustic suspension enclosure), and has the ability to sacrifice efficiency for deeper bass or vice versa. The frequency response of the single reflex bandpass enclosure is controlled by the volume of the enclosure.

Due to the complexity of its construction, a single reflex bandpass enclosure can be difficult to design and build. If you are inexperienced at building enclosures, we recommend that you build an acoustic suspension or ported reflex enclosure.

CONNECTING THE SUBWOOFER TO YOUR STEREO AMPLIFIER

We recommend you use 12-gaugeor thicker wire (such as Cat. No.278-1268,not supplied) to connect the subwoofer to your stereo amplifier. For the maximum bass response and the best overall performance, be sure to connect + to + andto.

Note: You can mount an optional speaker plate on your enclosure (such as Cat. No.274-630)to make it easy to connect the subwoofer to your stereo amplifier. This lets you connect the subwoofer to the plate, then connect the plate to your stereo amplifier.

Follow these steps to connect the subwoofer directly to your sound system.

1.Run one wire from each of the subwoofer’s terminals to the stereo amplifier.

2.Separate each wire’s two conductors at both ends for a length of about 2 inches, then strip the insulation from the ends of each conductor to expose 1/2 inch of wire.

3.Twist the endcap from a banana plug (not supplied) to remove it, route one of the speaker’s wires through the endcap, then fold the exposed wire around the top of the endcap.

4.Twist the banana plug back onto the endcap as shown here.

5.Repeat Steps 3 and 4 for each of the subwoofer’s wires.

6.Press the banana plugs into the subwoofer’s terminals to connect them.
