Whilst this is a photo copy, and some of the pages are a little askew, it was all readable and intact. A real bonus finding an old manual for a classic piece of kit that no other site had.
It was easy done, and I got exactly what I was looking for.

Proper placement of your speakers is an important step in obtaining the most realistic soundstage possible. These recommendations are for the optimum placement of your loudspeakers. Use these placement recommendations as a guide. Slight variations will not diminish your listening pleasure. The Studio Series S-CENTERII loudspeaker is videoshielded and can safely be placed near a television.
The S-CENTERII is designed to complement all of the Studio Series loudspeakers. It is the ideal way to re-create the cinematic experience in your home. The supplied self-adhesive felt pads may be attached to the bottom corners of your S-CENTERII speaker to protect your television or furniture.
Speakers and electronics terminals have corresponding (+) and (â) terminals. It is important to connect both speakers identically: (+) on the speaker to (+) on the amplifier and (â) on the speaker to (â) on the amplifier. Wiring âout of phaseâ results in thin sound, weak bass and a poor stereo image. With the advent of multichannel surround sound systems, connecting all of the speakers in your system with the correct polarity remains equally important in order to preserve the proper ambience and directionality of the program material. To use the binding-post speaker terminals, unscrew the collar until the passthrough hole in the center post is visible under the collar. Insert the bare end of the wire through this hole; then screw the collar down until the connection is tight. The hole in the center of each collar is intended for use with banana-type connectors.
