Thank you for choosing the Acoustic Energy Aego³ music system, please take a moment to
read through this quick set-up guide to ensure correct operation and to get the best
performance from your system.
Whether you’ve chosen the Sub/Sat or Sub/Soundbar variation of the system, the basic
operation remains the same and performance will be very similar between the two models.
When selecting the Bluetooth® “ ” input (indicated by a blue LED on the Subwoofer display panel) for
the frst time, the system will go into “pairing” mode and be visible to Bluetooth®-enabled devices for
connection as “AEGO3”. Once paired with the Aego³ the Bluetooth® source device will play audio
wirelessly through the system and operate overall volume level if the function is available.
Whenever the Bluetooth input is selected in future it will attempt to pair with previously connected
devices and become visible to new devices if no previous connections are available. Pairing mode can
also be manually selected by pressing the “Pair” button; when the system is in pairing mode the blue
LED on the Subwoofer display panel will fash, when connection is made the blue LED will remain lit
and an audible “beep” will be heard. The most recently connected device always takes preference
when attempting to play audio.*
*For instructions on source device’s Bluetooth® operation please refer to that device’s manual or manufacturer.
All operation of the Aego³ system is performed via the supplied remote control, there are
no physical controls on the system itself. A brief description of controls is outlined below.
All physical connections on the Aego³ system are made via the downward-fring panel at
the rear of the subwoofer. This placement ensures tidy cabling and allows for placement
close to walls if necessary.
Left and right speaker outputs:
for connection to individual RCA terminals on Aego Satellite speakers or L/R inputs on
Soundbar via supplied RCA -> RCA cable.
Optical digital input: for connection to a digital source; ie - TV, Blu-ray player, Satellite box etc.
TIP: If using multiple sources connected to a TV use the TV Optical out direct into the Aego³ system rather than individual connection between diferent sources and
the Aego³. Use PCM Audio output setting on source.
