Assembling the Front Panel and Attaching the Front Panel to the Display Assembly

To assemble the front panel and attach the front panel to the display assembly, complete the following steps:

Step 1 Assemble the floorboard by completing the following steps:

a. Place the L-brackets on the floorboard to that the longer part of the brackets face the front panel.

b. Attach the L-brackets to the floorboard with 12 mm flathead screws and washers.

Note The screws and washers attach through the bottom of the floorboard.

c. Place the connecting bracket so that the tabs are down and the threaded holes are away from the edge of the floorboard.

d. Insert the tabs into the slots that are cut into the floorboard.

e. Attach the connecting bracket to the front panel with 12 mm flat-head screws and washers inserted through the bottom of the floorboard.

Note The tab on the long end of the L-bracket should be behind and flush with the connecting bracket.

Step 2 Remove the PDU from its packaging, then turn the power switch on the PDU to the ON position.

Step 3 Orient the PDU so that the power cord points downward.

Step 4 Align the through holes in the tabs on the ends of the PDU with the threaded holes in the front panel and secure with M4 x 20 mm screws and washers.

Caution Do not yet plug the PDU into a power outlet.

Step 5 Connect the front panel to the assembled floorboard as follows:

a. Set the front panel over the assembled brackets.

b. Locate and align the threaded holes in the front and sides of the front panel with the slots in the brackets.

c. Secure the front panel to the floorboard with M4 x 20 mm screws and M4 washers with broad rings.

Step 6 Insert the speaker into the rectangular cutout so that the speaker is flush with the front panel and the speaker connections point upward.

Step 7 Locate the four inset screw heads in the speaker body (one near each corner) and using a 9/64-inch Allen wrench rotate counter clockwise until the screw locks (about ¼ turn).

Note This action releases the fastener that holds the speaker in place.

Step 8 Attach the speaker cables as follows:

a. Locate the speaker connections on the top of the speaker. The posts are shown in Figure 4-3.

b. Insert the spade connection from the speaker cable into the post; then, tighten the post.

Step 9 Locate the cutouts for the magnets.

Note See Figure 4-5 for the magnet cutout location.

Step 10 Orient the magnets so that the two recessed holes are facing out.

Step 11 Insert the magnets into the cutouts and secure with M4 x 12 mm screws.

Step 12 Locate three round holes that are spaced across the front panel.

Note See Figure 4-5 for more information.

Step 13 Insert a plastic dowel into each hole.

Step 14 Attach the front panel cover to the front panel as follows:

a. Orient the cover so that the gray, smooth side is facing outward.

b. Align the through holes in the four corners of the cover with the four threaded holes in the side panels of the front panel structure as shown in Figure 4-6.

c. Use M6 x 40 mm screws with a hex head to secure the cover to the front panel structure.

Step 15 Attach the speaker cover to the front panel structure as follows:

a. Orient the speaker cover so that the pins are toward the front panel structure and on the top.

b. Tuck the bottom of the edge of the speaker cover inside the gap between the cover and the front panel structure.

c. Locate the holes next to the magnets installed in the front panel and align the pins with these holes.

d. Press the pins into the holes and press along the top of the speaker cover until the cover is flush with the front panel structure.

Step 16 Mark the cables for the auxiliary control unit and PDU so that you can differentiate them after you attach the front panel assembly to the frame.

You connect these cables to a power outlet in Chapter 6, "First-Time Setup."

Tip Make sure that the power switch for the PDU, auxiliary control unit, and codec are turned to the On position.
