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° 
dispersion. 

Your speaker’s acoustic design matches 
the woofer and tweeter with the enclosure 
and damping materials, resulting in 
amazingly smooth and broad frequency 
response. 

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. 

SPEAKER PLACEMENT 

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 
inward. 

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 
bracket(s).

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 
FEET 

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. 

CONNECTIONS 

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 
terminals.

CARE 


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 
warranty. 

Caution: You might permanently damage 
your speaker by cleaning it with a vacuum 
cleaner. Use a feather duster or a soft loose 
cloth instead.
