Setting Up Your Lifestyle
Selecting a location for your Lifestyle
Select a location for your Lifestyle
stereo ampliﬁer and mount it according to the following guidelines.
DO NOT mount the ampliﬁer on surfaces that are not sturdy enough, or that have hazards con-
cealed behind them, such as electrical wiring or plumbing. The ampliﬁer must be placed indoors. It is nei-
ther designed nor tested for use outdoors or on boats.
Although the ampliﬁer does not need to be situated close to either your Lifestyle
system or the accessory
speakers, consider the following guidelines when selecting a location for your ampliﬁer:
• Locate the ampliﬁer indoors and within 8 feet (2.5 m) of a power outlet.
• Make sure that the ampliﬁer is located within the reach of the supplied 30-foot audio input cable.
• Place the ampliﬁer in an area where the maximum ambient temperature is less than 104
• For optimum performance, place the ampliﬁer in a well-ventilated area.
• DO NOT PLACE THE AMPLIFIER IN A COMPLETELY ENCLOSED AREA – If the ampliﬁer is installed on a
shelf, or in a bookcase, or inside an entertainment center, maintain 2.0 inches (5.0 cm) minimum clearance
(Figure 2) on all sides of the ampliﬁer with an open area of 3.0 inches (7.5 cm) minimum immediately above
it to allow for air ﬂow. If adequate ventilation is not provided, the ampliﬁer will automatically protect itself
by reducing its volume level in order to limit its temperature.
• DO NOT place the ampliﬁer on any heat-sensitive surface, such as the ﬁnished surface of ﬁne furniture.
Like all electrical equipment, it generates some heat.
• DO NOT use the ampliﬁer in a damp location. It is important to prevent moisture from getting into the unit.
between the ampliﬁer and
any material or surface.
• When mounting the ampliﬁer on a horizontal surface like a ﬂoor or shelf (Figure 3), the ampliﬁer’s rubber
feet provide stability and prevent scratches.
Horizontal surface mounting
• To mount the ampliﬁer on a wall (Figure 4), remove the rubber feet and use the existing guide holes in the
ampliﬁer’s enclosure. See Figure 5 on page 6 for recommended mounting hardware.
