two. Speaker Connections

Connection Tips

ARC10, ARC30

ARC1000

Standard Connection

Speakers and electronics terminals have corresponding (+) and

(–) terminals. It is important to connect both speakers identically: (+) on the speaker to (+) on the amplifier and (–) on the speaker to (–) on the amplifier. Wiring “out of phase” results in thin sound, weak bass and a poor stereo image.

ARC Center

Bi-Wiring

The ARC1000‘s outer connection panel and internal dividing network are designed so that separate sets of speaker cable can be attached to th e low-frequency transducer and midrange/high-frequency transducer portions of the

dividing network. This is called bi-wiring. Bi-wiring provides several sonic advantages and considerably more flexibility in power amplifier selection.

Single-Stereo Amplifier

Dual-Stereo Amplifier

Remove strapping bars.

Troubleshooting

If there is no sound from

any of the speakers, check

the following:

Receiver/amplifier is on and a source is playing.

Review proper operation of your receiver/amplifier.

If there is no sound coming

from one speaker, check the

following:

Check the “Balance” control on your receiver/amplifier.

Check all wires and connections between receiver/ amplifier and speakers.

Make sure all wires are connected. Make sure none of the speaker wires is frayed, cut, or punctured.

If the system plays at low volumes but shuts off as volume is increased, check the following:

Check all wires and connections between receiver/ amplifier and speakers.

Make sure all wires are connected. Make sure none of the speaker wires is frayed, cut, or punctured.

If more than one pair of main speakers is being used, check the minimum impedance requirements of your receiver/amplifier.

If there is low bass output,

check the following:

• Make sure the polarity (+ and –) of the left and right “Speaker Inputs” are connected properly.

If there is no sound from

the center speaker, check

the following:

Make sure that your receiver’s Center Channel Mode is in the ”normal“ or ”wide“ position. If it is in the ”phantom“ position, the center speaker will not play.

Check all connections between processor/amplifier and the center speaker.
