The 5.25” Kevlar® drivers provide distortion-free mid-range and deep bass that faithfully reproduces your favorite music.


SYD6 features a pair of 1” silk dome tweeters to deliver clear crisp highs.


SYD6’s simple user interface features a single knob positioned in the bottom right corner of the cabinet. Simply rotate for volume, push the knob in to cycle through the 5 inputs, or push and hold for 2 seconds to enter or exit standby mode.


SYD6 features five input choices, including two Optical TOSLINK ports and Bluetooth™. If you are looking for more low-end, connect a powered subwoofer to the SUB OUT port.


The SYD6 remote control gives you input, volume, and tone control, and allows you to control your connected Bluetooth™ device. You can also trigger USB charging when the speaker is in standby mode.


SYD6 has a pair of 2” rear bass ports that have been carefully designed and tuned to eliminate port turbulence while extending bass response.

Make sure to check back here often whenever installing (or reinstalling) your product to make sure that you have the most up to date manual. Changes could include ratings, installation procedures, etc.


When my speakers go into standby mode, do they save the bass and treble adjustments I have made?

Yes. Standby mode is for power saving purposes and does not affect your bass and treble settings. However, when the power is turned off completely, these levels will automatically default to factory settings.

Why won't my speakers enter Bluetooth™ pairing mode?

If you select Bluetooth™ as your input method and do not see a flashing white light on the front of your speaker, it means they are currently connected to a device. To enter pairing mode, ensure that all previous Bluetooth™ connections are disabled by pressing the Bluetooth™ reset button on your remote. If your remote is not available, simply reset the speakers by turning them off and on using the power switch on the back panel.

Can I connect to my SYD6 using Bluetooth™?

Yes you can! To setup Bluetooth™, ensure your speakers are in Bluetooth™ pairing mode, indicated by a flashing white light on the front panel. This is done by selecting the Bluetooth™ option on your remote, or by cycling through the inputs by pushing the volume knob. Doing so will cause your SYD6 to be displayed in your device’s Bluetooth™ settings. Once the pairing is complete, the flashing white light will turn solid and you can begin streaming your audio!

How do I cycle through the inputs without the remote?

If you have misplaced your remote, you can still cycle through the different input channels by pushing the volume knob. Connect your device through the desired input method and cycle through until you hear sound.

Cycle order: RCA > AUX > OPT1 > OPT2 > Bluetooth
