Introduction The ADA880 is a technologically advanced multimedia amplified speaker system featuring Dolby Digital AC3 and Dolby Pro-Logic surround sound and stereo reproduction. The amplifier inputs can simultaneously operate on analog and digital (S/PDIF)* audio signals. The unit is comprised of a subwoofer and two satellite speakers. This combination provides surround sound on a desktop by utilizing side firing speakers.
4) Plug the AC power plug into the wall outlet. The ADA880 unit should be installed close to the AC power outlet so that the power plug can be readily removed from the outlet in the event of a hazardous problem.
Placement of Speakers (See Figures 4 and 5) All stereo information is heard from the satellite and surround speakers. The subwoofer contains no stereo information and its sound is non-directional. As a result, the subwoofer does not necessarily have to be placed in any particular relationship to the satellites. Placing the subwoofer on the floor close to a wall or corner of a room provides maximum bass efficiency.
