The installation process for the SOLO6C is very basic, so nothing to mull over here. Just place the two speakers an equal distance apart, forming an equal-lateral triangle with the top most point being the users head.
Now, in terms of cabling, there is one cable that links the two speakers together. Another connects the master control speaker with the user's sound card. Really easy stuff here. Overall control of the system is taken care of by a master volume dial on the left hand speaker and also by a small credit card sized remote. Our only issue here was not having access to input/treble/bass controls from the master speaker.
Of interest here, though, is one issue we had with the supplied cable that connects the two speakers. Care must be taken here to be sure that the insulation on the cable has been sufficiently cut back to provide a decent connection with the terminal. Should we remember to breathe also, we hear you ask? - Well, obvious as it may be here and now, it appears as though there was a factory issue with the cable stripping, resulting in only half of the insulation being taken off when the cable was prepped for shipping. No big issue, but mystifying on initial setup of the system. And if you do not know much about speakers, then an unnecessary store return would result from this probably.
Here is what we did. We completely scraped the original cable and used a better one which cost $2.50 (approx) from an electrical store. And while we were at it, also scraped the included stereo mini jack cable and replaced it with a higher quality unit costing $9.95. Now, obviously if you are going to buy this system then you do not have to replace these cables, but often a very worthy performance increase can result, because cables are usually used to cut back on manufacturing costs and it's thus very rare to find a system that ships with high quality copper cables included.
