Q. Will my DOME Speakers work with my current equipment?

A. Absolutely. We have designed the Dome Speaker System to work with virtually any other audio equipment you might already have - or are thinking of buying - provided your amplifier has enough power. Weave found that DOME speakers sound great with all Ibrand name Midi Systems.

Q. What is the recommended amplifier power to use with my DOME Speakers?

A. The recommended range is between 20 watts per channel (minimum), and 100 watts per channel (maximum).

Q. How many DOME Speakers do I need?

A. The DOME System can be tailored to your preference. We find most customers buy a Dome 3-Pac System 2 Satellite speakers and 1 Bass speaker. This will fill a room up to 5.5 metres by 6 metres (18ft x 20 ft) at a normal listening level.

If you like to listen to very loud music, or you want to place your speakers in a bigger room, we recommend you buy a Dome 5-Pac System 4 Satellite speakers and 1 Bass speaker. If you want more bass simply add another bass speaker.

Q. Whereabouts in the room should I place my DOME Speakers?

A. For optimum stereo effect, the speakers should be placed at ear height about 2-3 metres (6-10 feet) apart. However, your DOME speakers will work perfectly well pretty much anywhere in the room. The wall-mounting brackets are a great aesthetic (and practical) option but are not compulsory‚ for any audio reasons.

Q. Where do I place my DOME Bass Speaker?

A. It's better to place the DOME Bass Speaker on the same side of the room as the satellite speakers, but exactly where is up to you. You may prefer to place the Bass Speaker in the corner - this increases the bass because the corner acts like a horn to amplify the sound.

Q. Can I mount my DOME Speakers onto the wall?

A. Yes - the Satellite speakers and the Bass speaker can we wall mounted by using our specially designed mounting brackets. In addition the Satellite speakers can be angled to the position of your choice. (See accompanying diagram).

Q. How do I wire up my DOME Speakers?

A. A Wiring Diagram is supplied with your speakers. This gives you two different wiring options depending on the preferred location of the speakers in the room.

Q. What kind of wire works best?

A. We recommend 18-gauge wire if the run is less than 7.5 metres (25 feet), and 16-gauge wire if the run is longer than that.

Q. What about putting my DOME Speakers near a colour TV or PC? Will that affect the colour?

A. Not at all. DOME Speakers are magnetically shielded so the monitor colours won't be affected.

Q. What colours do DOME Speakers come in?

A. Four different colours: Aluminum. Red. White. Blue.

As an option Dome speakers can be matched to the colour of your choice.

Q. How do I clean my DOME Speakers?

A. Methylated spirits on a soft cloth works very well for both the Satellite Speakers and the Bass Speaker.

Q. Do DOME Speakers come with some kind of warranty?

A. Absolutely. DOME Speakers come with a 5-year warranty against any material or manufacturing defects. This is effective from your date of purchase.
