Due to our policy of continuous improvement, this is a specification update sheet that should be read along with the manual as it provides the latest correct information. All specifications may be subject to further change without notice.

IMPORTANT

A mains cable is supplied - where the moulded plug is fitted with a mains fuse, always replace with the same type and rating. If the fitted plug is unsuitable for your type of outlet sockets, it should be cut off and disposed of safely. The wires in the mains cable are coloured in accordance with the following code:

GREEN AND YELLOW

EARTH

BLUE

NEUTRAL

BROWN

LIVE

As the colours of the wires in the mains cable may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as follows:

The wire that is coloured GREEN and YELLOW must be connected to the terminal in the plug that is marked either by the letter E, the earth safety symbol, or coloured GREEN or GREEN and YELLOW.

The wire which is coloured BLUE must be connected to the terminal in the plug which is marked by the letter N or coloured BLACK.

The wire which is coloured BROWN must be connected to the terminal in the plug which is marked by the letter L or coloured RED.

Ensure that the terminals are tightened securely, and no loose strands of wire are present. Ensure cord grip is clamped over outer sheath of cable, rather than over the wires.

FUSE PROTECTION

An additional mains fuse is provided in the IEC power inlet on the amplifier panel, removable with a screwdriver. A fuse of the same type and rating must always replace this.

The correct type is 5mm x 20mm Time Delay (Type T):

T1.6AL / 125V for AC 220-240V / 50Hz operation,

T800mAL/ 250V for AC100-120V / 60Hz operation.

Tannoy adopts a policy of continuous improvement and product specification is subject to change.

FOR YOUR OWN PROTECTION

Store the complete packaging in case it is needed for re-use.

Never expose the unit to moisture, water and extremes of temperature or humidity. Specifically, the unit shall not be exposed to dripping or splashing and that no objects filled with liquids, such as vases, shall be placed on the unit. Allow 150mm behind the unit to allow for sufficient ventilation. Articles such as newspapers, tablecloths, curtains etc must not impede the ventilation. Do not operate with the rear panel facing a radiator or heater. No naked flame sources, such as lighted candles, should be placed on the apparatus.

Never remove the rear panel of the unit, as there is a risk of electric shock.

There are no user serviceable parts inside the unit. Always refer servicing to your Tannoy dealer or authorised service agent.

Avoid violent shocks to the unit during packing or transportation.

Do not plug the unit into the mains until all other connections have been made and checked.

Due to the powerful magnet within FX 5.1 subwoofer, do not place within 1m of a television or computer monitor.

When set to the 'standby' and 'off' functions, a small amount of current continues to flow to the apparatus when not in use. If not used for a long period of time, it is recommended that the apparatus is completely disconnected at the AC mains socket.

Terminals marked with the flash symbol are hazardous live and the external wiring connected to these terminals requires installation by an instructed person or the use of a ready-made lead or cord.

This apparatus is designed for use in moderate climates.
