Proper placement of the
speakers is an important step
in obtaining the most realistic
soundstage possible. These
recommendations are for the
optimum placement of the
loudspeakers. Use these
placement recommendations
as a guide. Slight variations
will not diminish your
listening pleasure.
The Studio Series S36
loudspeakers are video-
shielded and can safely be
placed near a television.
Although these loudspeakers
are designed as a mirrored
pair, the decision as to
which one is left or right will
depend on the amount of
space left between them.
If there is no sound from 
any of the speakers:
• Check that receiver/
amplifier is on and that 
a source is playing.
• Review proper operation 
of your receiver/amplifier.
• Make sure all wires are
connected. Make sure none 
of the speaker wires are
frayed, cut or punctured.
If the system plays at low
volumes but shuts off as
volume is increased:
• Check all wires and con-
nections between receiver/
amplifier and speakers.
• Make sure all wires are
connected. Make sure none
of the speaker wires are
frayed, cut or punctured.
• If more than one pair of
main speakers is being 
used, check the minimum
impedance requirements of
your receiver/amplifier.
If there is no sound coming
from one speaker:
• Check the “Balance”
control on your receiver/
• Check all wires and
connections between
receiver/amplifier and
• Make sure all wires are
connected. Make sure none
of the speaker wires are
frayed, cut or punctured.

For stereo-only applications:
For home-theater applications:
A wider stereo image is
presented with the
tweeter/midrange array
outboard, and a tighter
image is presented with the
array inboard.
This placement provides 
a wide spread in sound,
supplemented by the 
center-channel speaker.
The Studio Series S36
loudspeakers may be wall-
mounted as either front or
rear speakers, horizontally 
or vertically. The S36
enclosures are specially
designed to angle the
speakers toward the listener
when mounted flush against
the wall.
A template sheet is provided
to aid in drilling mounting
holes needed for the 4
keyholes on the back of 
the S36. Always use all 4
keyholes, and try to place at
least 2 of the 4 screws into a
wooden wall stud. Size 10
screws of at least 1-1/2" in
length are recommended. 
If the screws are used in
drywall or other surfaces
incapable of holding the
screw by itself, selection of
proper anchors is essential.
The customer is solely
responsible for proper
selection and installation of
screws, anchors and other
installation hardware.
Further installation details
are included on the
installation template.

Installation of Self-Adhesive
Rubber Pads: 
If the S36 is to
be placed on a surface
(such as a table top or shelf)
rather than being wall-
mounted, the enclosed self-
adhesive rubber pads are to
be attached to the bottom of
the speaker cabinet in their
designated recessed loca-
tions. If the S36 is to be wall-
mounted, then the four self-
adhesive rubber pads should
be attached to the back of
the speaker, as shown in the
bottom right diagram. 
The S36 can also be used on
floor stands. Please see your
JBL dealer for more
speakers identically: (+) on
the speaker to (+) on the am-
plifier and (–) on the speaker
to (–) on the amplifier. Wiring
“out of phase” results in thin
sound, weak bass and a
poor stereo image. With the
advent of multichannel
surround sound systems,
connecting all of the
speakers in your system
with the correct polarity
The S36 loudspeakers may be
positioned on the wall either
horizontally or vertically. The
grille logo on each speaker
may be rotated depending on
how the speaker is
positioned. Gently pull the
logo away from the grille
slightly, rotate it to the desired
position, and let go. The logo
will snap back into place. 
When mounted vertically, the
tweeter array may be
positioned either up or down,
depending on the height of
the placement. If the
speakers will be above ear
level, the tweeter array
should be positioned down,
preferably no more than two
feet above ear level. If the
speakers will be mounted
very low, it may be best to
position the tweeter array
upward so that it will be no
more than two feet below 
ear level.
For wall-mounting
For tabletop or shelf placement
remains equally important in
order to preserve the proper
ambience and directionality
of the program material.
