BERYLLIUM MATERIAL

  • THE M3 USES A TWEETER EQUIPPED WITH A DIAMOND COATED BERYLLIUM DOME, ALLOWING  A FREQUENCY  RANGE  EXTENDING BEYOND 40kHz. IN ITS SOLID FORM, BERYLLIUM IS HARMLESS. HOWEVER, DUE TO ITS NATURE, CERTAIN SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS SHOULD BE OBSERVED TO AVOID EXPOSUR E TO UNNECESSARY RISK, SUCH AS:
  • UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES  SHOULD THE BERYLLIUM DOME BE SUBJECTED TO ANY FORM OF ABRASIVE ACTION .
  • IN THE UNLIKELY CASE OF DAMAGE TO THE DOME, OF ANY FORM, A WIDE PIECE OF ADHESIVE TAPE SHOULD BE IMMEDIATELY USED TO SEAL THE WHOLE  FRONT SURFACE OF THE TWEETER. YOU SHOULD THEN INFORM THE DEALER WHO YOU PURCHASED THE PRODUCT FROM, SO THAT THE TWEETER CAN BE REMOVED AND REPLACED BY A PROFESSIONAL.
  • IF THE DOME IS DAMAGED  IN ANY WAY, CAUSING LOOSE PARTICLES OF BERYLLIUM, THESE SHOULD BE CAREFULLY COLLECTED WITH THE USE OF ADHESIVE TAPE, PLACED IN A SEALABLE BAG, AND RETURNED ALONG WITH THE TWEETER.

SERIAL NUMBERS

PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO RECORD YOUR SPEAKERS’ SERIAL NUMBERS BELOW.

SPEAKER PLACEMENT AND POSITIONING

THE MAGICO M6 LOUDSPEAKERS ARE PRECISION INSTRUMENTS FOR MUSIC REPRODUCTION. AS SUCH, PROPER CARE AND ATTENTION TO DETAIL WHEN SETTING UP THESE SPEAKERS WILL YIELD THE MAXIMUM PERFORMANCE, REGARDLESS OF THE PARTICULAR ROOM. FOLLOWING THESE SET-UP GUIDELINES WILL ENSURE THE SPEAKERS ARE PROPERLY POSITIONED TO DELIVER THE OPTIMUM LISTENING EXPERIENCE. ALL THAT IS REQUIRED IS A TAPE MEASURE, A PEN, A CALCULATOR, A BALL OF STRING, A COUPLE OF DEMO CDS, AND SOME PATIENCE.

PLACEMENT—M6s IN RELATION TO BACK AND SIDE WALLS

BEFORE YOU BEGIN: LOOK FOR OBVIOUS IMPEDIMENTS INCLUDING ANYTHING THAT COULD IMPEDE OR DIMINISH THE SOUND—E.G., OTHER SPEAKERS, AMPLIFIERS, EQUIPMENT RACKS, ANYTHING ON THE WALL THAT COULD CAUSE A REFLECTION, A SEVERE MISMATCH IN QUALITY AMONG INDIVIDUAL COMPONENTS, AND UNNECESSARY OR POORLY RUN SPEAKER/INTERCONNECT CABLES.

BASS—DISTANCE FROM REAR WALL

THE INITIAL PLACEMENT SHOULD BE APPROXIMATELY 20 INCHES (1/2 M) FROM THE BACK OF THE LOUDSPEAKER TO THE BACK WALL. SINCE WE HAVE SHORT AUDITORY MEMORY, THE SELECTED DEMO MUSIC CUT SHOULD BE BRIEF—30 SECONDS – 1 MINUTE MAX. IT SHOULD BE A WELL RECORDED JAZZ CUT WITH GOOD BASS GUITAR OR PERCUSSION. WHAT WE ARE LISTENING FOR AT THIS TIME IS THE DEFINITION OF THE BASS AND THE RIGHT SENSE OF PROPORTION.

NEXT, MOVE THE SPEAKER 6 – 8 INCHES (15 – 20 CM) FORWARD AND REPEAT THE LISTENING PROCESS. REPEAT THIS PROCESS, MOVING THE LOUDSPEAKER FORWARD IN 6 – 8 INCH (15-20 CM) INCREMENTS. WHEN YOU REACH THE POINT FROM WHICH MOVING THE SPEAKER FORWARD SOUNDS WORSE THAN THE PREVIOUS LISTENING POINT, MOVE THE LOUDSPEAKER BACK TO THIS POSITION AND MARK THIS DISTANCE FROM THE REAR WALL.

MIDRANGE—PLACEMENT IN RELATION TO SIDE WALLS FOR LATERAL PLACEMENT

BEGIN BY DIVIDING THE ROOM WIDTH BY 14. INITIAL PLACEMENT OF THE LOUDSPEAKERS WILL BE AT 3 AND 11. THE DISTANCE FROM THE LOUDSPEAKER TO THE EARS HAS TO BE PRECISELY EQUAL. THIS MEASUREMENT IS CRITICAL. THE MUSIC FOR THIS PROCESS SHOULD BE A FEMALE VOICE AND PIANO. WE ARE LISTENING FOR THE IMAGE OF HER VOICE TO BE FOCUSED. THE RULE FOR THE TOE- IN IS TO PICK A POINT APPROXIMATELY 1 – 2 FEET (.5M) BEHIND THE LISTENER’S HEAD. TOE THE LOUDSPEAKERS IN TO INTERSECT AT THAT POINT.

IF THE SOUND IS TOO BRIGHT, TOE THE SPEAKERS OUT A LITTLE MORE. IF THE SOUND IS TOO DULL, TOE THE SPEAKERS IN A LITTLE MORE. REPEAT THE ABOVE PROCESS WITH THE LOUDSPEAKERS AT THE 4 AND 10 POSITION. THEN REPEAT, ONCE AGAIN WITH THE SPEAKERS AT THE 5 AND 9 POSITION.

SUMMARY

ONCE THE INITIAL PROCESS HAS BEEN COMPLETED, RETURN TO THE BASS SET-UP TO ENSURE THAT THE LOUDSPEAKERS ARE THE PROPER DISTANCE FROM THE BACK WALL. WHEN THE PROCESS HAS BEEN COMPLETED, MARK THE SPEAKER LOCATION WITH TAPE SO THAT THE SPEAKERS CAN BE RETURNED THERE FOR FURTHER LISTENING.

POSITIONING—M6s IN RELATION TO THE LISTENER

  • THE SPEAKERS AND THE LISTENER SHOULD FORM AN ISOSCELES TRIANGLE.
  • THE LISTENER SHOULD BE EXACTLY EQUIDISTANT BETWEEN THE TWO LOUDSPEAKERS. THE BEST WAY TO DETERMINE THIS IS WITH A PIECE OF STRING. PICK A FIXED SPOT AT THE LISTENING POSITION. RUN THE STRING FROM THIS SPOT TO THE FRONT OF THE TWEETER OF THE LEFT SPEAKER. REPEAT THE PROCESS FOR THE RIGHT SPEAKER. IT IS CRITICALLY IMPORTANT TO KEEP THIS DISTANCE PRECISELY THE SAME.

CONNECTIONS

CONNECTIONS SHOULD BE MADE WITH ALL ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT (AMPLIFIERS, PREAMPLIFIERS) TURNED OFF. THERE ARE TWO TERMINALS AT THE BACK OF THE SPEAKER. THE TERMINALS ARE INSULATED TO ACCEPT A VARIETY OF CABLE TERMINATIONS FOR MOST APPLICATIONS AND TO PREVENT ANY LIKELIHOOD OF ELECTRICAL SHOCK, EVEN WHEN THE SPEAKERS ARE USED WITH THE HIGHEST POWERED AMPLIFIERS. DO NOT USE TOOLS TO TIGHTEN THE BINDING POSTS.

BREAK-IN

A LOUDSPEAKER IS A MECHANICAL DEVICE AND AS SUCH REQUIRES AN EXTENDED INITIAL PERIOD OF NORMAL USE DURING WHICH A NOTICEABLE IMPROVEMENT IN SOUND QUALITY WILL OCCUR. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO ACCELERATE THE BREAK-IN PROCESS BY PLAYING SINE WAVES, TONE SWEEPS, BREAK-IN CDS OF ANY SORT, OR OTHER GENERATED SIGNALS.

CARE

FOR ALUMINUM PANELS USE A LINT-FREE SOFT CLOTH (PROVIDED IN ACCESSORY KIT). FOR PAINTED SURFACES, USE A PRODUCT SUCH AS MEGUIAR’S PROFESSIONAL FINALINSPECTION 34. DO NOT USE CLEANERS THAT CONTAIN AMMONIA, STRONG SOLVENTS, OR ABRASIVE MATERIALS. USE OF THESE CLEANERS CAN DEGRADE, SCRATCH, OR DESTROY THE FINISH.
