    							Congratulations on choosing the Acoustic Energy AESPRIT
    301, a powerful two-way rear channel speaker which features
    metal diaphragm technology and is capable of outstanding
    performance. Please take a few moments to read this
    manual. The advice it contains will enable you to get the very
    best performance out of your Acoustic Energy loudspeakers.
    The AESPRIT 301 utilises metal cone mid-bass drive unit technology,
    proven in the AE Reference series. The rigid anodised alloy cone ensures
    pure piston action and also acts as a heat sink for the bonded voice coil.
    These features provide exceptional clarity, transparency, dynamics and
    power handling.
    The tweeter - or treble driver - is a high-quality neodymium unit with a
    silk fabric dome integrating smoothly with the rest of the system.
    All drive units are fully magnetically shielded so that the speakers
    can be used in close proximity to a TV screen or monitor for AV
    applications.
    The Acoustic Energy AESPRIT 301 loudspeaker uses quality OFC internal
    wiring, which enhances detail and transparency. 
    Rigid support in close proximity to large, solid boundaries (ie. walls)
    is essential for the speaker to develop its full detail and dynamic
    performance.
    The brackets supplied will make full use of this “boundary effect”
    which uses the large surface area of a wall to compensate for the
    compact size of the speaker. The two rubber feet (also supplied)
    should be stuck to the bottom rear corners of the cabinet to hold it
    slightly off the wall and allow access for speaker cable. If the Aesprit
    301s are shelf mounted the support must be firm; cones are
    recommended beneath the cabinets.
    Experiment with the best position to achieve a full yet clean bass
    response. Trust your judgement and ears.
    Aesprit 301s are designed to be used with their grilles left in place.
    For best stereo imaging the speakers should be as far apart as they
    are from the listening position.
    Positioning Introduction 
    						
    							Check that your amplifier is switched off before installing your 
    loudspeakers. Failure to do so may result in speaker or amplifier 
    damage. 
    The diagram illustrates one loudspeaker only. 
    The positive (ribbed) cable from the amplifier positive (or red) terminal
    should connect with the positive (red) terminal on the loudspeaker.
    Similarly the negative (smooth) cable should connect the amplifier
    negative terminal (black) to the negative terminal (black) on the
    loudspeaker.
    After wiring up
    Lower the volume to the minimum, switch on the amplifier, select the
    signal source and then raise the volume to the listening level required.
