I purchased the unit from a private party and the original owners manual was not available. Having the ability to download it was extremely helpful and clarified operating the equipment immensely. This is a complicated unit and without the manual I would not have been able to maximize it's potential. Thank you.
Being a user of older radios of many kinds, preferring them over more modern rigs, this manual was invaluable in the programming of my two. I now know for certain what the assorted buttons functions are, and am very grateful to have found this excellent site. Many thanks for your assistance, Tony.
Clear and easy to read. All details as expected. Price acceptable , and quick delivery.
Quick response and exactly what I was looking for and at a great fair price!
5 star quality on these downloadable manuals. Easy to read and all the information is there. A must when doing a custom install or needing to service your precious old school electronics.

The plaque of each speaker rotates so that you can position the speakers upside down. Caution: A mounting screwâs ability to support a speaker depends on how well itâs anchored to the wall. If you have hollow walls, screw each mounting screw into a stud. If there are no studs, or the walls are solid, use suitable wall anchors. Use screws with a head diameter of 9.5 mm or less and a shank diameter of 4 mm or less. With hollow walls, use a cable/pipe detector to check for any power cables or water pipes before making any holes. Leave a gap of 5 mm Wall between the wall and the base of the screw head, as shown. (We recommend that you consult a home installation professional.)

Connecting the Speakers
Read the following before connecting your speakers: â¢ Turn off your amp before making any connections. â¢ The nominal impedance of these speakers is 6 â¦. Use only an amp that supports this impedance. â¢ Pay close attention to speaker wiring polarity. Connect positive (+) terminals to only positive (+) terminals, and negative (â) terminals to only negative (â) terminals. If the speakers are wired incorrectly, the sound will be out of phase and will sound unnatural. â¢ Be careful not to short the positive and negative wires. Doing so may damage your amp.

Using Speaker Mounts/Brackets
Threaded inserts for 5 mm machine screws are provided for wall-mounting with commercially available speaker mounts and brackets (SKC-L500C: rear, SKM-L500S: rear and buttom). Refer to the manual supplied with your mounts or brackets for installation details. Note: Mount or bracket The portion of the screw that goes into the speakerâs threaded insert should be between 5 mm and 9 mm long.

â Connecting the Speaker Cables
Strip the insulation from the ends of the speaker cables, and twist the bare wires tightly. Use the cables to connect each speakerâs input terminals to the corresponding speaker output terminals on your amp. To make a connection, while pressing the terminal lever, insert the wire into the hole, and then release the lever. Make sure that the terminals are gripping the bare wires, not the insulation.
The speakers can handle the speciï¬ed input power when used for normal music reproduction. If any of the following signals are fed to them, even if the input power is within the speciï¬ed rating, excessive current may ï¬ow in the speaker coils, causing burning or wire breakage: 1. Interstation noise from an untuned FM radio. 2. Sound from fast-forwarding a cassette tape. 3. High-pitched sounds generated by an oscillator, electronic musical instrument, and so on. 4. Ampliï¬er oscillation. 5. Special test tones from audio test CDs and so on. 6. Thumps and clicks caused by connecting or disconnecting audio cables (Always turn off your ampliï¬er before connecting or disconnecting cables.) 7. Microphone feedback. â¢ The speakers contain strong magnets, so do not put magnetic or iron objects such as screwdrivers close to them. If you do, the object may be attached to the magnets, causing personal injury or damage to the diaphragm.
