How do I connect the Subwoofer to earlier versions (versions 1 and 2) of the Ceramic Speakers?
The Subwoofer is fully compatible with all versions of the Ceramic Speakers. The included RCA to 3.5mm cable is used to connect the Subwoofer to the 3.5mm input on the back of your original amplifier. The new version 3 amplifier connects to the subwoofer using the included RCA to RCA cables.
How do I connect the Ceramic Speaker System to a record player?
Most record players require a phono pre-amp to connect to the Ceramic Speaker System. You would first connect the turntable to the pre-amp’s input, then the pre-amp’s output to the Ceramic Speaker System’s input.
What happens if a part breaks during shipping?
Any part of the system, including ceramic components, that is damaged during shipping or does not work upon arrival will be replaced immediately, free of charge.
Will the Ceramic Speaker System work with international outlets?
The system is compatible with 110v to 240v power mains, which covers every country in the world. The only adapter you will need is the simple, inexpensive type that converts the shape of the US plug to your country’s standard outlet. A voltage converter will not be necessary.
