IMPORTANT: Before connecting the subwoofer, all sound system equipment should be disconnected from the
mains until you have gone through all steps below. This will avoid the risk of damage to your system while
connections are made or broken.
8.4 Where do I place the Final Sound subwoofer?
The Final Sound subwoofer is developed to reproduce music signals of the audio range below 250 Hz. Our human
ears can locate the higher frequencies much better than the low frequencies that come out of the subwoofer. This
makes the positioning of the subwoofer less critical than full range speakers. The definite location should be a
compromise between sound and your domestic preferences.
For an easy start we recommend to place the unit between the left and right front speaker. Make sure that air can
flow around the cabinet also on the back of the subwoofer for cooling reasons, especially when you are planning to
place the subwoofer in some kind of furniture or on a small area.
The Final Sound Subwoofers covers the low frequency range (from 25Hz for the S200 and 35Hz for the S100 and
40Hz for the S90)) up to 250Hz. While the F1000i covers the frequency range from 38Hz up to 20kHz, it is important
to define carefully the crossover frequency between the subwoofer and the electrostatic panels, which is influenced
by the acoustic properties of the room and the placement of the subwoofer.
High Voltage Inside. To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not expose this
apparatus to rain or moisture.
