Installing The Remote Control Batteries

The remote control requires two “AAA” batteries, not included. We recommend that you use a well known brand of alkaline batteries for longest life and best performance.

Open the remote control battery compartment by sliding the battery compartment cover in the direction of the ‘arrow’.

 

 

Install two “AAA” batteries in the compartment according to the polarity markings inside the compartment as shown in the illustration. If the batteries are installed incorrectly the remote control will not work. After installing the batteries replace the battery compartment cover.

NOTE: When the operation of the remote control becomes intermittent or stops working completely replace the batteries as soon as possible. Never leave weak or exhausted batteries in the remote for an extended period of time. They may eventually leak and cause permanent damage to the remote control.

Battery Precautions

Replacement of batteries must be done by an adult.

Do not mix old and new batteries.

Do not mix alkaline, standard (carbon-zinc)or rechargeable(nickel-cadmium)batteries.

The supply terminals are not to be short-circuited.

Non-rechargeablebatteries are not to be recharged.

Exhausted batteries are to be removed.

Only batteries of the equivalent type are to be used.

Batteries are to be inserted with the correct polarity.

Dispose of batteries properly. Do not dispose of batteries in fire. The batteries may explode or leak.

The left speaker is connected the left-pair(L) terminals.

The right speaker is connected the right-pair(R) terminals.

The speaker cables and the speaker terminals are color-coded.

Connect the Red wires to theRed terminals.

Connect the Black wires to theBlack terminals.

If the wires are connected incorrectly the sound will be “muddy” or distorted.

To make the connection, completely depress the plastic levers to open the terminals, insert the bare end of the speaker wire into the terminal openings, and release the plastic levers to lock the wires in place.
