An X Rocker is a chair for playing video games. The rocker is wired with speakers, a subwoofer and built-in amplifiers to surround the game player with an immersive audio experience. X Rockers fold in the middle for easy storage and the sound cables attach in seconds using standard RCA-type audio cords. Volume and power controls are along the side of the rocker for convenient adjustments.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Place the X Rocker in front of the television or monitor at a comfortable distance from the screen. Fold up the back of the rocker to lock the seat back in place.

  2. 2

    Insert the plugs on one end of the audio cables into the Audio IN jacks on the side of the X Rocker below the seat, using the white plug for the left audio jack and the red plug for the right.

  3. 3

    Connect the cables on the other end to the Audio OUT jacks on the back of the television or audio-visual receiver, if the X Rocker is connecting to a home theatre system. Use the same colour codes to match the cable plugs to the jacks.

  4. 4

    Insert the DC plug into the power jack on the X Rocker and plug the other end into a wall outlet.

  5. 5

    Switch on the gaming system and the TV, and turn the on/off volume-control knob clockwise on the side of the X-Rocker.

Tips and warnings

  • When using an AV receiver, turn the selector knob on the front of the receiver to the set of jacks connecting the receiver with the X Rocker--for example, Auxiliary 1 or AUX 1.
  • Avoid accidental electrical shock or short circuits by unplugging the equipment from the wall outlet before connecting audio cables.
