The ACS54 consists of four satellites anda subwoofer and is especially designed asa multimedia gaming amplified speakersystem.It is used with computers that have soundcards which provide 3D (three-dimensional) decoded audio outputs orwith conventional computer sound cards.The sound card outputs for 3D audiooutputs are usually marked as OUT 1 andOUT 2. The ACS54 has two inputs that areconnected to these sound card outputs. Theinformation provided from the computeroutputs will activate the 4 satellitespeakers and subwoofer so that you willhear sounds above and below you andapproaching from every direction. Theresult is a real-life audio experience thatsurrounds the listener with sound in allthree dimensions. The computer softwarewill allow modifying the directionality ofthe sound.If the computer you are using does nothave the 3D sound card decoder, it ispossible to install one. The supplier ofthe sound card will provide installationinstructions and software.If your computer only has a stereo soundcard, the ACS54 can still operate as astereo amplification system. In thisinstance only one input of the ACS54 willbe used. All four satellites and subwooferwill be activated.
