PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH (cont'd)
Optionally, you can use a stand on each of the satellites to direct the sound upward by 11 degrees. You can also slide the stands under the back feet of the satellites to angle them downward.
Interestingly, the satellite cables use four-pole ATX connectors which is something I've never seen on audio equipment. Corsair claims this connector combined with heavy gauge wire “provides a succinct solution for the challenge of providing discrete amplified signals to the midrange and tweeter.” Each cable is six feet long and Corsair should have some extension cables on their website for purchase soon.
The subwoofer uses a 4 th order band-pass design instead of the more commonly used ported bass reflex design. A 4 th order design places the driver unit in a sealed chamber, allowing it to generate bass tones with ultra low levels of distortion. The driver fires into a separate, ported chamber. The following diagram shows this difference in subwoofer technology:
The rear of the subwoofer contains all the inputs and outputs with clear labeling. You have the option of connecting the speakers to a PC or console gaming system using your choice of the 3.5mm stereo cable or the RCA cable set. Also note the desktop control remote uses a 15-pin D-sub connector.
