  • Q. What are the stereo or amplifier requirements?

    A. You can order an amplifier from us directly or find your product listed below for what stereo is required.

    Stereo manufacturers have been changing the method of speaker connections from straight wires to a variety of plugs depending on the brand. This has been causing difficulties for customers to purchase their own stereo at a reasonable cost to connect to Somatron products.  

    The best solution is to purchase an amplifier at the time of ordering. Should you choose to purchase amplifiers from Somatron with each product order we can then ship the appropriate amplifier with each product at no additional shipping charge.  

    In anticipation of your needs we will keep a substantial stock of amplifiers with easy connections and sufficient wattage to power each Somatron for maximum performance.  

    These amplifiers will include a RCA adapter to allow you to connect your current stereo; portable CD player or Mp3 player (iPod) to be connected to the amplifier.

    Step 1: Use nonabrasive household cleaners such as Formula 409 All Purpose Spray Cleaner or Fantastik Spray Cleaner with water and a soft cloth.
    Step 2: Use a solvent-type cleaner such as rubbing alcohol (isopropyl alcohol)liberally applied with a soft cloth. Dry area with another cloth, rinse with clean water and dry.
    Step 3: Use strong, active solvent cleaners such as nail polish remover (acetone / water) applied with a soft cloth. Stain should be removed with less then six (6) rubs; if stain persists after six rubs, stain has probably set** and may not be capable of being removed. Dry area with another cloth, rinse with clean water and dry.
