STAGE A190/A180/A170 – LEFT AND RIGHT CHANNELS
For best results, place the speakers 6 – 10 feet (1.8m – 3m) apart. Angling the speakers toward the listening
position can improve the stereo imaging. The speakers will produce the most accurate stereo soundstage when
the angle between the listener and the speakers is between 40 and 60 degrees.
Use the included carpet spikes for stability and improved performance if you are placing your Stage A190/A180/
A170 speakers on a thick rug or plush carpeting. The carpet spikes can be manually screwed into outrigger feet
CAUTION: Floorstanding (tower) loudspeakers have a high center of gravity and may become unstable and
tip over during earthquakes or if they are rocked, tipped or improperly positioned. Consider anchoring
these speakers to the wall behind them, using the procedures and hardware customary for anchoring
bookcases and wall units. You are responsible for proper installation and proper selection of hardware.
Generally, bass output will increase as the speaker
is moved closer to a wall or corner.
For best performance, we recommend that you
place the speakers at least 20 inches (51cm) away
from the side and rear walls.
There are two operation modes for A120,
Bookshelﬂ oudspeaker & On-wall loudspeaker. In
the Bookshelf mode, A120 is the ported system
(port in rear), and in the On-wall mode, A120 is
semi-sealed system which requires a foam plug
inside the port.
WALL-MOUNTING THE STAGE A120
We have designed the Stage A120 speakers to mount
directly onto a wall. Each speaker has four keyholes on
the back and will require four 4.0x38mm wood screws
fastened to a wall stud. If a wall stud is unavailable,
install an anchor appropriate for a 4.0x38mm screw.
NOTE: You are responsible for the correct selection
and use of mounting hardware (available through
hardware stores) that will ensure the proper and safe
wall-mounting of the speakers. 4.0x38mm wood screws

Leave an 1/16" (1.59mm) space between the wall
and screwhead. If a wall stud is not available, use an
