Installation and Setup
Getting started with the Mako THX speaker system is a walk in the park. The number of cables can appear to be a little daunting for the uninitiated, but the process is extremely intuitive. If you look at the back of the subwoofer, you'll find all the connections that you'll need. Razer even has little pictures to help you out.
Going from left to right, you have the ports for the control pod (VGA-like cable), the 3.5mm stereo input (line 1), the two RCA inputs (line 2), the right and left ports for the satellites (CAT5 cables), the on/off switch, and the port for the power cable. After everything has been connected the way it needs to be, you can place the two satellites on just about any flat surface. The speakers are omni-directional, making use of the flat surface to distribute sound in a 360-degree manner. You don't need to find a "sweet spot" for placement to get a great aural experience.
From there, you can flip the on switch to give some juice to the subwoofer and amplifier. Then, the center of the control pod will light up dimly and you simply hold this center touch-sensitive "button" to boot it up. Now you have access to 300 watts of pure audio enjoyment.
