                                              TEST PROCEDURES

General Function
     UUT = Unit Under Test
1.   Connect both right and left line level inputs (RCA) to signal generator and UUT. Use Y-cable if necessary from
     mono source. VOLUME control should be full counterclockwise.
2.   Turn on generator, adjust to 50mV, 50 Hz.
3.   Plug in UUT; red LED should be ON. Turn VOLUME control full clockwise.
4.   LED should turn Green; immediate bass response should be heard and felt from port tube opening.
5.   Turn off generator, turn VOLUME control fully counterclockwise, disconnect RCA cables.
6.   Connect one pair of speaker cables to either high level input terminal on UUT. Cables should be connected to
     an integrated amplifier fed by the signal generator.
7.   Turn on generator and adjust so that speaker level output is 2.0V, 50 Hz. Turn VOLUME control full clockwise.
8.   Green LED should light, immediate bass response should be heard and felt from the port tube opening.

Sweep Function
1.   Follow steps 1-4 above, using a sweep generator as a signal source.
2.   Sweep generator from 20Hz to 300Hz. Listen to the cabinet and drivers for any rattles, clicks, buzzes or any
     other noises. If any unusual noises are heard, remove driver and test.

Driver Function
1.   Remove driver from cabinet; detach + and - wire clips.
2.   Check DC resistance of driver; it should be 3.0 ohms.
3.   Connect a pair of speaker cables to driver terminals. Cables should be connected to an integrated amplifier fed by
     a signal generator and adjust so that speaker level output is 5.0V.
4.   Sweep generator from 20Hz to 1kHz. Listen to driver for any rubbing, buzzing, or other unusual noises.

    BEFORE THIS AMPLIFIER IS PLUGGED IN, make sure its rated voltage corresponds to the voltage of the AC power
source to be employed. Failure to use the correct voltage could cause damage to the amplifier when the AC power cable is
plugged in. Do not exceed the rated voltage by more than 10%; operation below 90% will degrade performance or cause the
unit to shut off.

   It is essential that the following safety insulation test be
performed prior to returning the Power Sub-Woofer to the
customer, using one of the following methods.
      A) Insulation Resistance Test

          With a 500VDC Insulation Tester, Check
          insulation from the outer metal contact of the
          RCA jack (chassis) to the line neutral of AC
          cord. Resistance should be >100M.

      B) Hi-Pot Test

        If a UL approved Hi-Pot tester is available, test
        line & neutral of AC cord to outer shell of RCA
        jack (chassis) at 1100VAC for 2 seconds.
        Observe all of instrument manufacturer's
        instructions and safety warnings in performing
        this test.
