The AVS300 is an amplified speaker system featuring a
subwoofer for extended low frequency response and high
quality multimedia performance. A patented control
circuit automatically boosts bass at low volume to main-
tain musical sound "realism".
The satellite speakers are magnetically shielded to pre-
vent color distortion on video displays. However, the
subwoofer is not magnetically shielded and should be
placed on the floor away from the computer monitor or
The AVS300 is compatible with popular gaming systems,
desktop and laptop computers, home stereo and portable
music systems and most other audio devices.

Turn the volume control clockwise to increase volume
and counter-clockwise to decrease volume.

headphone or line level output including computer sound
cards, portable CD players, MP3 players and others.

All stereo information is heard from the satellite speak-
ers. The subwoofer contains no stereo information and
sound is non-directional. As a result, the subwoofer does
not necessarily have to be placed in any particular rela-
tionship to the satellites. Placing the subwoofer on the
floor close to the wall provides maximum bass efficiency.
The subwoofer is not magnetically shielded and should
not be placed near video displays.
