2-Way Die-Cast Mini Speaker
Your 2-Way Die-Cast Mini Speaker is
small in size, but not in sound! Its 5-inch
cone woofer with patented honeycomb
material between two layers of woven
fiberglass provides superior rigidity for
outstanding bass performance with
minimal distortion. The Linaeum®-
designed wide-angle monopole tweeter
produces crisp, detailed highs with 180°
Your speaker’s acoustic design matches
the woofer and tweeter with the enclosure
and damping materials, resulting in
amazingly smooth and broad frequency
Your speaker can handle up to 150 watts
of power. The speaker is magnetically
shielded so you can safely place it next to
your television or monitor.
Location and position are vital to your
speaker’s performance. The ideal location
is on a table or shelf positioned near the
corner of a room. A shelf attached to a
wooden wall (or some other acoustically
hard surface) greatly reinforces the
speaker’s sound quality. If possible, place
the front edge of the speaker flush with
the front edge of the shelf.
For the best sound, avoid floor locations;
floor coverings can absorb much of the
sound. We recommend that you play a
familiar, wide-range recording and
experiment with speaker placement until
you find the location that provides the
best sound for your needs.
If you are using another speaker with your
speaker, for the best stereo image the
distance between your speakers should be
about equal to the distance from the main
listening area to a point halfway between
the speakers. If you must place your
speakers farther apart, turn them slightly
You can mount your speaker on a wall or
under a shelf using optional speaker
brackets (available at your local
RadioShack store). Or, you can use a
Vr-inch wall-mount speaker bracket.
Follow the instructions provided with the

Note: When you use the wall-mount
bracket, remove the screw on the back panel
of the speaker so you can thread the ball
shaft. For any other type of mounting
bracket, use the mounting holes and leave
the screw in place.
ATTACHING THE RUBBER
Rubber feet are supplied with your speaker
so it will not scratch your furniture. With
the thicker feet positioned toward the front
corners of the speaker and the thinner feet
positioned toward the back corners, remove
the feet from the paper backing and press
each onto the bottom of the speaker.
With the speaker placed at the desired
location, measure the distance from the
speaker to the amplifier. Use 18-gauge
speaker wire for a distance of 50 feet or less.
For a distance greater than 50 feet, use a
heavier 16-gauge wire.
For the maximum bass response and overall
best performance, be sure to connect the
terminals in phase, connecting positive (-r)
to positive and negative (-) to negative.
Speaker wire is either color-coded, with a
different color on each side, or coded with a
ridge or stripe on one side to identify the
wire’s different sides, making the connection
process easier. RadioShack stores sell
speaker wire to meet most needs.
Follow these steps to prepare the wire and
connect the speaker.
1 . Separate the wire conductors for a
length of about 2 inches, then remove
about V 2 inch of insulation from the
wire’s ends using a wire stripper.
2 . Push down the speaker’s black tab to
open the negative (-) terminal and
insert one of the wire’s conductors into
the terminal. Release the tab.
3 . Push down the speaker’s red tab to open
the positive (-r) terminal and insert the
wire’s other conductor into the terminal.
Release the tab.
4. Using the speaker wire’s coding as a
guide, connect the other end of the
speaker wire to the amplifier’s
corresponding (right or left) speaker
Keep the speaker dry; if it gets wet, wipe it
dry immediately. Use and store the speaker
only in normal temperature environments.
Handle the speaker carefully; do not drop it.
Keep the speaker away from dust and dirt,
and wipe it with a damp cloth occasionally
to keep it looking new.
Modifying or tampering with the speaker’s
internal components can cause a
malfunction and might invalidate its
Caution: You might permanently damage
your speaker by cleaning it with a vacuum
cleaner. Use a feather duster or a soft loose
