OWNER’S GUIDE
MODEL: BALBOA 10
SPEAKER PLACEMENT
Proper placement of the
speakers is an important step
in obtaining the most realistic
soundstage possible. These
recommendations are for the
optimal placement of the loud-
speakers. Use these place-
ment recommendations as a
guide. Slight variations will not
diminish your listening plea-
sure. All of the Balboa Series
As front speakers
MODEL: BALBOA 30
As surround speakers
MODEL: BALBOA CENTER
The Balboa Center loud-
speaker is designed to com-
plement all of the Balboa
Series loudspeakers. It is the
ideal way to re-create the
cinematic experience in your
home.
† 
Placement for surround back
speakers in 6.1/7.1 systems, or
alternate placement for side
surround speakers in 5.1 sys-
tems.
loudspeakers referred to in
this guide are video-shielded
and can safely be placed near
a television.
MODELS:
BALBOA 10 AND
BALBOA CENTER
The supplied self-adhesive
rubber feet may be attached 
to the bottom corners of your
speakers to protect your 
furniture.
MODEL: BALBOA 30
This model is shipped with
four self-adhesive nonskid
pads that are to be used when
the loudspeaker is intended 
to be placed on a smooth-
surfaced floor, such as tile or
hardwood. Gently lay the
speaker on its side (not its
front or back) on a soft, non-
abrasive surface. Attach each
pad to the bottom of its foot in
the widest portion of the
recessed area.
DO NOT attach the pads if 
the speaker will be placed 
on carpeting.
NEVER drag the speaker to
move it, as this will damage
the pads, the feet and/or the
wood cabinet itself. Always 
lift the speaker and carry it to
its new location.
CAUTION: Floorstanding
(tower) loudspeakers have a
high center of gravity and may
become unstable and tip over
during earthquakes, or if
rocked, tipped or improperly
positioned. If this is a concern,
these speakers should be
anchored to the wall behind
them, using the same proce-
dures and hardware custom-
ary for anchoring bookcases
and wall units. The customer
is responsible for proper
installation and proper selec-
tion of hardware.

MODELS:
BALBOA 10 AND
BALBOA 30
MODEL:
BALBOA CENTER
Speakers and electronics ter-
minals have corresponding (+)
and (–) terminals. It is impor-
tant to connect both speakers
identically: (+) on the speaker
to (+) on the amplifier and (–)
on the speaker to (–) on the
amplifier. Wiring “out of
phase” results in thin sound,
weak bass and poor imaging.
With the advent of multichan-
nel surround sound systems,
connecting all of the speakers
in your system with the cor-
rect polarity remains equally
important in order to preserve
the proper ambience and
directionality of the program
material.
To use the binding-post
speaker terminals, unscrew
the colored collar until the
pass-through hole in the cen-
ter post is visible. Insert the
bare end of the wire through
this hole; then screw the col-
lar down until the connection 
is tight.

TROUBLESHOOTING
If there is no sound from any
of the speakers:
• Check that receiver/ampli-
fier is on and that a source is
playing.
• Review proper operation of
your receiver/amplifier.
If there is no sound coming
from one speaker:
• Check the “Balance” control
on your receiver/amplifier.
• Check all wires and connec-
tions between receiver/ ampli-
fier and speakers.
• Make sure no wires are
touching other wires or 
terminals and creating a short
circuit.
• Make sure all wires are con-
nected. Make sure none of the
speaker wires are frayed, cut
or punctured.
• In Dolby* Digital or DTS®
modes, make sure that the
receiver/processor is config-
ured so that the speaker in
question is enabled.
• Turn off all electronics and
switch the speaker in question
with one of the other speakers
that is working correctly. Turn
everything back on, and deter-
mine whether the problem has
followed the speaker, or has
remained in the same channel.
If the problem is in the same
channel, the source of the
problem is most likely with
your receiver or amplifier, and
you should consult the
owner’s manual for that prod-
uct for further information. If
the problem has followed the
speaker, consult your dealer
for further assistance or, if that
is not possible, visit 
www.jbl.com 
for further information.
If the system plays at low vol-
umes but shuts off as volume
is increased:
• Check all wires and con-
nections between receiver/
amplifier and speakers.
• Make sure all wires are con-
nected. 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 (or low) bass
output:
• Make sure the polarities 
(+ and –) of the left and right
“Speaker Inputs” are 
connected properly.
• If your system includes a
powered subwoofer, make
sure it is connected correctly,
plugged into an active AC out-
let and turned on. See the
owner's guide for your sub-
woofer for more information.
• If your system does not
include a powered subwoofer,
consider adding one for use
with digital “.1” surround for-
mats.
If there is no sound from 
the surround speakers:
• Check all wires and connec-
tions between receiver/ampli-
fier and speakers. Make sure
all wires are connected. Make
sure none of the speaker
wires are frayed, cut or punc-
tured.
• Review proper operation of
your receiver/amplifier and its
surround sound features.
• Make sure the movie or TV
show you are watching is
recorded in a surround sound
mode. If it is not, check to see
whether your receiver/ampli-
fier has other surround modes
you may use.
• In Dolby Digital or DTS
modes, make sure your
receiver/processor is config-
ured so that the surround
speakers are enabled.
• If you are using both side
surround and back surround
speakers, make sure that your
receiver/processor is config-
ured for 6.1/7.1 operation.
• Review the operation of your
DVD player and the jacket of
your DVD to make sure that
the DVD features the desired
Dolby Digital or DTS mode,
and that you have properly
selected that mode using both
the DVD player’s menu and the
DVD disc’s menu.
