Enclosure

Driver Configuration: If you are facing the right speaker, the woofer fires forward, the 2" Stereo Targeting tweeter fires towards the left, and the 3" Direct/Reflecting tweeter is on the right hand side of the speaker behind a 2nd grill and is angled to fire towards the rear and side of the speaker. The left speaker is a mirror image of the right speaker.

Port: There is a port slot on the front of the speaker (behind the grill) and a second slot next to the 3" tweeter.

Placement: These speakers were designed to be positioned horizontally and should not be placed vertically. There are some fairly specific placement recommendations in the manual:

(1) Place speakers 4-12 ft apart
(2) Leave at least 12" of space from the end of a speaker to the side wall
(3) Leave at least 18" from the speakers to the floor or ceiling
(4) Leave at least 24" from the speakers to any TV screen
(5) Keep the back of the speakers within 18" of the wall behind them

Note: There are no provisions for wall mounting these speakers and the manual specifically notes that these speakers are not designed to mount on walls. The 018AS3 speaker stands are specifically noted as the ones to use with these speakers.
