Many contemporary mainstream audio speakers lack the bass response necessary to accurately reproduce audio as it was intended to be heard. Hooking up a Panasonic SB series subwoofer to your stereo receiver or television can dramatically expand the device's bass response, bringing a deeper and fuller low-end to your listening environment.

Step 1

Attach the provided rubber feet to the bottom of the Panasonic SB subwoofer.

Step 2

Position the subwoofer appropriately within the room in which you intend to use it.

Step 3

Connect the included monaural connection cable from the subwoofer output on your receiver or TV to the input jack on the rear of the subwoofer.

Step 4

Connect the included power cord from the rear of the subwoofer to an available electrical socket.

Step 5

Press the "Power" button on the subwoofer.

Step 6

Play audio through the receiver or turn on your television to begin sending an audio signal to the subwoofer.

Adjust the "Low Pass Filter," "Volume" and "Phase" controls on the rear of the subwoofer to suit your taste and environment.
