Handling - Loudspeakers are relatively delicate, precision
engineered products that can be damaged by inappropriate
handling. Please take care when unpacking or moving them
not to touch any of the drivers. Damage to a driver will at
best degrade performance and at worst result in complete
Set Up - Radiance one - Ideally the Radiance ones should be
mounted on dedicated speaker stands tall enough to place
the tweeter at, or slightly above ear level from a seated listening
position. The use of wall mounting via brackets or shelf/cabinet
placement are viable alternatives, though performance in these
locations may be reduced from the optimum.
Radiance two/three - As foorstanding speakers both models
require placement clear of room boundaries and should be
mounted on spiked feet (supplied) for best performance. If
spikes are inappropriate for your foor covering, metal
protection pads, coins for example, may be used between the
spike and the foor.
Radiance centre - For use in home theatre systems either
directly above or below the screen. The centre can be stood
on a furniture unit (using supplied rubber feet), integrated
within a screen stand, mounted on a dedicated speaker stand
or on a wall using appropriate bracket hardware.
Each Radiance Series speaker has two pairs of binding-post
terminals. These terminals can accept either stripped wire, spade
connectors, or 4mm plugs. Each of these termination methods are
potentially equally efective and the choice is likely to be infuenced
by the type of speaker cable used. Your dealer, distributor or cable
manufacturer will be able to ofer advice.
The two pairs of binding posts are mechanically joined via gold-
plated bridging links and can be single or bi-wired.
Simply connect the speaker cable to the correct polarity terminal on
the speaker (positive - red, negative - black). Either top or bottom
terminals can be used. Ensure the speaker cable is attached to the
amplifer in the correct polarity before use. (Note - you will have two
unused terminals, one red, one black on the speaker when wired this
way, this is correct when the bridging links are in place)
To bi-wire you will need to unscrew the caps on the binding posts
and remove the bridging links before connection. There are multiple
ways to bi-wire/bi-amp a speaker, consult your Hi-Fi dealer for the
best advice on how to do this with your particular system. They will
also be able to advise on cable choice to best match your system.
