How do I get rid of a hum or buzz in my Harbinger PA speaker(s)?
How do I use the polarity reversal switch?
Phasing is also influenced by the mutual positioning and orientation of the loudspeakers in a system. It is possible to have proper polarization of all cables and equipment and still achieve better bass response by having the subwoofer set to reverse polarity, or having several subwoofers set at different polarities. Bass response also will change with the listener’s position in the room. During testing, monitor the bass response from several different locations in the venue.
Start with all subwoofers in the system with polarity switches in the norm position. Next, with your system playing at or near its expected operating level, change the polarity of each subwoofer, one at a time. Walk around the venue and evaluate the overall bass response, and select the phase setting that produces the best overall bass response.

What is Prop 65?
Proposition 65 requires warning labels on any product that may contain any of 770-plus elements that the California Environmental Protection Agency considers a carcinogen or a reproductive toxicant. These elements include lead (sometimes contained in the solder used to attach electronic parts to the printed circuit boards), brass, PVC and a multitude of other everyday elements. The list of elements changes often, making it difficult to keep track of the changing list of elements.
There are penalties for not complying with Proposition 65. Failure to label products may result in civil penalties. If a company’s product is sold or is purchased outside the State of California and brought into California, the company may still be found in violation.
Various trade organizations have issued notices to manufacturers warning of Proposition 65 and its implications. Included in the warnings were suggested methods of protection from Proposition 65 litigation and violations. Protection requires warning consumers about the possibility of dangers from products. A warning label such as the one we use is considered to comply with warning consumers.
We are providing warnings in an excess of caution and they should not be taken as an admission that a warning is required. The label does not necessarily indicate our products will cause you to contract cancer or reproductive harm if used as designed.
