Connecting the Speakers
When connecting the speakers, match the red wires to the red
jacks and the black wires to the black jacks. Each speaker has a
black and a red jack, one for positive and one for negative. The
top two jacks are for the right speaker, while the bottom two
jacks are for the left speaker.
Using the FM and AM Antennas
Before you use your audio system, you'll want to make sure
both the FM and AM antennas are positioned properly. The FM
antenna is the coiled wire connected to the back of the unit.
Uncoil it, making sure it is fully extended (you may even want
to tape it to the wall behind the unit, if possible. The higher, the
better.) You'll also need to connect the AM antenna loop to the
back of the unit if you listen to AM stations.

Setting the Time

1. Press and hold the CLOCK button until the hour flashes.
2. Press the PRESET left or right arrow button to set the hour.
3. To change to the minutes, press CLOCK.
4. To set the minutes, press the PRESET left or right arrow
button.
5. When finished, press the PROG/SET button to set the time.
Using the Equalizer
To get the best sound quality from your audio system, you'll
want to use the equalizer, or EQ. You can either use the preset
EQ settings (Flat, Rock, Pop, and Jazz), or customize the mid-
range, bass, and treble settings for your personal preference.
EQ Presets
Press the PRESET EQ button to cycle through the Flat, Rock, Pop, and Jazz presets. As you cycle through the presets,
listen carefully to how the sound changes.
Customizing the EQ Settings
You may find that customizing your EQ settings may work best for you. This feature allows you to adjust the bass
frequency for a fuller, deeper sound from bass-producing instruments, such as drums; the mid-range for more defined
vocals; and the treble for higher frequencies, such as cymbals. You can set the levels from -10 to +10 for each EQ setting
(bas, mid, tre).
1. Press and release the PRESET EQ button until CUSTOM is displayed.
2. Press the PRESET left or right button to cycle through the EQ settings.
3. While the desired setting is displayed, press the VOLUME up or down button to set the level (-10 to +10).
4. Repeat steps 2-3 for any other settings you want to adjust.
Bass Boost
For even more bass, press the BASS BOOST button.

Setting the Timer

1. Press and hold the TIMER ON/OFF button until the hour flashes.
2. To set the hour you want the timer to come on, press the PRESET left or right arrow button.
3. To change to the minutes, press TIMER ON/OFF.
4. To set the minutes, press the PRESET left or right arrow button.
5. To change to the volume setting, press TIMER ON/OFF.
6. To set the volume, press the VOLUME up or down button.
7. To change to the time you want the timer to go off, press TIMER ON/OFF.
8. To set the timer off time, repeat steps 2-3.
9. Press PROG/SET to set the timer.
Using the Remote for Tape Player Functions
Keep in mind the tape player functions of the unit are mechanical and can't be operated by the remote.
