Sub 6 User manual

Sub 6 In Use

Once installed and configured, your Sub 6 should require little attention other than perhaps occasional volume control adjustment to suit different types of programme material.

Grille Removal and replacement

The Sub 6 can be used with its grilles fitted or removed. To remove the grilles simply pull them carefully away from the cabinet. To refit a grille align its pegs with the fittings on the face of the cabinet and gently push the grille home to secure it in place. Always take care not to damage the moving parts of the drive units when removing or replacing grilles.

Cleaning your subwoofer

Brush the grille surfaces with a soft brush and the cabinet surfaces with a clean lint-free cloth. Do not use a vacuum cleaner. If you wish to use a cleaning agent, apply it to the cleaning cloth and not directly to the subwoofer. Test a small area first, as some cleaning products may damage some of the surfaces.

Support

Should you require help or advice there are a variety of support options for Dynaudio products. These can be found at dynaudio.com.

Note

Distances are specified in the Sub 6 configuration menus in order to equalise the signal arrival times from the subwoofer and main speakers at the listening position. This ensures that the phase relationship between the subwoofer and main speakers is correct and that they integrate optimally.

For a central listening position the Left and Right speaker distances should be equal.

If two subwoofers are used their distance to the listening position should be specified individually.

Sub 6 Troubleshooting

There are various reasons why a subwoofer might not function properly in a system without it being faulty. The following checklist will help solve problems you may encounter. Before consulting your Dynaudio dealer, check this list first.

Check this first:

Check if all signal cables are connected properly.

Check settings in bass management menu of the connected processor/receiver.

Carefully and gradually increase the subwoofer volume level on the processor/receiver.

  • Carefully and gradually increase the subwoofer volume level using the subwoofer VOLUME control.

Sub 6 Troubleshooting Matrix

The subwoofer switches itself off although music is playing.

Cause:

There is hardly any low-frequency signal available. This can happen if the music or movie itself does not contain very low frequencies (e.g. long dialogues).

The subwoofer will switch on automatically as soon as low frequency signals are detected.

The subwoofer will not switch on.

Cause:

  • AC mains cable has become disconnected.
  • Mains switch on the rear is switched to OFF.

Make sure to switch the system off first before making any changes!

  • Reconnect mains cable.
  • Switch mains back on.
  • Check if all signal cables are connected properly.

The subwoofer will not switch on automatically.

Cause:

  • No signal is present on either of the subwoofer’s inputs (LED lights red).

  • Check if all signal cables are connected properly.
  • Check if the subwoofer output on the source is active.

Subwoofer is switched on not making any sound.

Cause:

  • No signal is present on either of the subwoofer inputs.

  • Subwoofer volume level has been turned down on the processor/receiver.
  • Volume is turned down on the subwoofer controls.

Make sure to switch the system off first before making any changes!

  • Check if all signal cables are connected properly.
