A Note Regarding Wireless Performance: Like all wireless devices, your Polk DSB Sound Bar
System may be susceptible to RF interference from such sources as microwave ovens, Wi-Fi computer
systems, video game systems, cordless telephones, blue tooth systems, baby monitors and other
devices. In particular, any devices operating in the 2.4GHz band may cause intermittent wireless
connections between the Polk DSB1 Sound Bar and DSB2 wireless subwoofer. It is also possible that your
Polk DSB Sound Bar System may affect other wireless systems. For the most part, you can avoid wireless
performance problems by physically separating these devices from your Polk DSB Sound Bar System.
Maintaining a distance of several feet or more between your Polk DSB1 Sound Bar and any wireless
device should prevent any mutual interference effects. If you do notice any subwoofer signal dropouts
take care to identify the root cause (most commonly having other wireless devices too close) and resolve
accordingly. Any interference effects from a microwave oven will cease once the oven stops operating and
may be resolved on a long-term basis by increasing the physical distance between your Polk DSB1 Sound
Bar and the microwave oven.
