6. My sub/speakers are not shielded. How close can I put them to my TV?
Unfortunately there is no cut and dry answer for this. You see, every TV will react differently with every speaker. It's a matter of trial and error. Your best bet for finding out how close you can put your speakers is to do the following. Turn on your TV with your speaker as far away as possible (no more than 10 feet). Begin sliding (or carrying) the speaker toward the TV, keeping an eye on the TV screen at all times. Eventually you will begin to see a discoloration/distortion in the TV screen. At this point you should back away roughly 1 foot. Turn the TV off for a few minutes. Now turn it back on. Your picture will look fine and you now know how far the speaker must be from the TV in order not to cause a problem.
7. How do I connect a 3.5mm jack to a receiver with RCA connectors?
You can purchase an RCA to 3.5mm mini adaptor cable at most local electronics retailers.
8. I put the speaker on top of my TV and now I have distortion on my TV screen. I thought this speaker was shielded. What could be wrong?
This speaker is shielded, and does fall within shielding specs. However, many times, because the speaker is large, as it is being placed on top of a TV, it will cause some distortion. There are a few ways to deal with this. First move it around slightly until you get the least amount of distortion. Now (if you have a newer TV), simply turn the TV off, unplug it for a minute or two, and then turn it back on. Most newer TV's have a demagnetizing process that happens when you first turn it on. This should get rid of the distortion. If it does not, look in the TV display or menu for a demagnetizing feature. If it does not have a demagnetizer, you may have to purchase a demagnetizer (available at most electronic stores) to demag your screen.
9. Where is the best place to put my subwoofer?
The fact is, you can put it anywhere because you won't be able to detect where the low frequencies are coming from. However, if the sub is placed in the wrong spot, it is feasible that you will not be able to hear it. This is due to something called "standing waves". The sound of the bass will bounce off the wall and come back to you. Of course, the direct sound will come to you as well. If these two sounds are out of phase with each other, you will not be able to hear the bass. In general, it is recommended that the subwoofer is placed somewhere along the front wall with your front speakers. Finding the best placement is usually a matter of trial and error. Simply try placing the sub in a few areas, and stick with the one that sounds the best to you when you are sitting in the general listening area. Placing it in a corner is often times the most effective spot.
