Before You Start
– Some Klipsch speakers have feet and other
accessories that may need to be installed prior to use. Please
refer to Diagrams 1, 2, 3 and 4 for installation.
Left and Right Main Channel Speakers
– For optimum
performance, place your speakers 6 to 15 feet (2 to 4.5m) apart
and at least 24 inches (60.8cm) from side walls. They may also
be toed-in slightly for better stereo imaging. The listening
position should be approximately 1 to 1.5 times the distance
separating the speakers. Refer to figures 1, 2 and 3 for
connection and placement.
Center Channel Speakers
– Center channel speakers are
designed to place dialogue and primary sounds so that they
appear to come from the video screen. The speakers should
therefore be placed as close to the screen as possible, preferably
directly on top of or below the screen. Refer to figures 2, 3 and 4
for connection and placement.
Rear Surround Channel Speakers
– Rear surround speakers
are designed to recreate the sense of space and ambiance that
many of today’s surround sound technologies provide. Quintet
surround speakers can be placed on the wall directly adjacent to
or on the wall behind the listening position using the foot as the
mounting bracket. Refer to Diagram 4 and Figures 2 and 4 for
connection and placement.
Conventional Connection
– Using 16-gauge or larger speaker
wire, connect the RED “positive” (+) terminal of the LEFT speaker
to the RED “positive” (+) terminal of your amplifier’s LEFT
channel. Connect the BLACK “negative” (-) terminal of the LEFT
speaker to the BLACK “negative” (-) terminal of your amplifier’s
LEFT channel. Repeat this procedure for connecting all remaining
speakers to the appropriate amplifier channels. Refer to Figure 4.
Make sure no bare wires from any of the connections touch any
other bare wires or terminals as this could cause a short and
damage your equipment.
Amplifier Requirements
– Klipsch speakers are highly
efficient and will work well with a wide variety of ampli-
fiers. Due to the high output levels Klipsch speakers are
capable of reproducing, exercise caution with the volume control.
Excessive volume over long periods of time can permanently
damage your hearing. Overdriving your amplifier could also
damage your speakers. Check with your dealer to make sure
your particular amplifier is best suited to your application. We
want you listening for a lifetime.
Your speakers have a durable finish that should only require dry
dusting. Avoid use of abrasive or solvent-based cleaners and
harsh detergents. The brush attachment of your vacuum or a
damp cloth should remove any dust from your speaker grilles.
