LOUDSPEAKER SIZE AND SUBWOOFER SETUP
LOUDSPEAKER SIZE SELECTION
When choosing loudspeaker sizes it is important to take into consideration the low frequency
energy and demands of the home cinema system. Generally loudspeakers using a single 8
inch or smaller low frequency driver need to be
specified as SMALL for home theater use with a
crossover of 80 Hz. Further details of this
requirement can be found on the Dolby Labs
web site.
STANDARD SUBWOOFER CONNECTION
When you choose Small for the Front Left and
Right speakers then the subwoofer will be
required for the system and the PRePro will not
allow the Subwoofer OFF selection, requiring
you to attach a Subwoofer into the system. The
default crossover point will be 80 Hz. If you
wish to use a different crossover frequency or
want to use an external crossover for the sub-

woofer this can be accomplished by changing the Crossover setting as indicated under
the Speaker Size menu. If you are using an
external crossover for the subwoofer then
select NONE for the Crossover frequency.
ENHANCED BASS SUBWOOFER
CONNECTION
If you have very large Front Left and Right
loudspeakers and wish to send the LFE information to them as well as a subwoofer then
select the LARGE setting for the Front speakers and Subwoofer OFF. The subwoofer can
then be connected either to one or both of
the front outputs of the PRePro or to the Amp
output(s) for the front speakers. In either case
the subwoofer crossover will need to be used
to connect in this manner. Please refer to the
subwoofer manual or dealer/installer for
details in connecting your specific subwoofer.

Note: If a loudspeaker is set to NONE in
the Speaker Size menu and you select this
speaker (for example you have no back
speakers in a 5.1 system and you press
Back Right in the Calibration menu) then calibration noise will come from the next active
speaker in the list (Surround Left in this example). This is normal, just be sure to select
only active speakers when going through the
calibration process. You will not be able to
adjust the level of speakers which are inactive, even if selected.
5. Repeat steps 2, 3 & 4 for FRONT RIGHT,
SURROUND and BACK speakers, matching
each to the CENTER speaker from the main
listening position.
6. Press 8 to produce pink noise from the SUBWOOFER. The SUBWOOFER will not sound
the same as the rest of the speakers, reproducing only the lower frequencies. Adjust the
volume as in Step 4 until the SUBWOOFER
sounds or measures the same level as the
CENTER speaker level.

Hardware Setup
It is strongly recommended that your PRePro
be properly installed and all connections
completed before programming the SET UP
MENU.
First, all OUTPUT connections, either singleended or XLR, have a 1:1 output gain and
may be used at the same time or intermixed
depending on usage.
The PRePro connection configuration and
back panel design was strongly influenced
by professional installers and is organized
into logical zones of use. There are two
extraordinary differences in the design of
the PRePro that should be noted.
Second, the 7.1 INPUT or throughput may
be routed through analog bass management
for use with the home theater configuration
when playing CD, SACD or DVD-A sources.

video from each of the three component inputs.
S-Video inputs can be viewed from the S output
or composite outputs since the PRePro will down
mix S to COMPOSITE. The programming
MENU can be viewed from S-Video or
Composite video output. For best video quality
use component or S-Video connections when
available. The PRePro front panel monitor only
accepts a composite input for this monitor to

Multi-Channel Output Connection
Connecting the PRePro to your amplification
and subwoofer systems can be done using the
single ended (RCA) connections, the XLR connections or both, in combination or parallel. If
you require extra outputs, for example when
using 2 subwoofers, the PRePro’s outputs provide the same gain on both the XLR and RCA
connectors and are properly buffered for simultaneous use.
1. Connect the FRONT Left and Right to the
main L and R of your amplification.
4. Connect BACK L and R if the system is
designed for a 6.1 or 7.1 configuration.
When using a 6.1 with a rear center

Listening Mode Definitions
The various listening modes affect signals from any input except the 7.1-channel analog input.
Not all listening modes are available for every type of input. For example, modes that generate
surround signals from stereo sources cannot be used with DTS or Dolby Digital signals that have
discrete digital surround channels, and decoding modes for such digital surround signals won’t
work with stereo signals. When you select modes, those not available for your currently selected
input simply won’t show up as options. If you switch to an input that your currently selected
mode won’t work with, the PRePro will automatically select an appropriate mode (usually, Stereo
for stereo sources and Dolby D or DTS for surround sources).
Listening Modes
Stereo: Plays all sources in stereo, through the front left and right channels. When surround
input signals are played in stereo mode, the contents of the surround, rear, and center channels
are reproduced in the stereo output signal.
Dolby Pro Logic II Movie: Optimized for movies and electronic games, this 5.1-channel
mode has more channel separation than Pro Logic, and two full-range surround channels instead
of a single, filtered channel. By feeding the two surround speakers slightly different signals, Pro
Logic II produces a more spacious, enveloping effect. Unlike the original Pro Logic, it is
designed for use with stereo analog or digital signals as well as for films and other two-channel
material with Dolby Surround encoding. Available only with two-channel sources.
Dolby Pro Logic II Music: Optimized for music listening, this mode is designed to produce
surround ambience from stereo sources such as CDs.
Dolby Digital EX: An enhancement of the original Dolby Digital 5.1-channel surround system,
it adds backof-the-room surround information to the information coming from the surround speakers at the room’s sides. It can be used with a 6.1-channel speaker setup having one surround
back speaker, or with a 7.1- channel setup having two surround back speakers. If the program
includes an EX "flag" signal, the PRePro will select this mode automatically. The Dolby EX mode
can be selected manually for the many EX DVDs that lack the flag. A list of Surround EX films
can be found at www.dolby.com/movies/films_previous.html.
Dolby 2/0: Two channel stereo recordings using the Dolby Digital signal format. Processing
modes available are mostly the same as those for stereo CDs.
DTS-ES: An enhancement of the DTS 5.1-channel surround system which adds back-of-the-room
surround information. In DTS-ES Discrete soundtracks, this is carried on a discrete, or independent, channel. In DTS-ES Matrix soundtracks, it is encoded as a matrix that is carried by the left
and right surround channels. In Setup you can elect to play Surround-back information through
one (6.1-channel) or two (7.1-channel) surround-back speakers.
DTS Neo:6 Cinema: For 6.1-channel decoding of movies with surround-encoded, two-channel
soundtracks; adds a single rear channel (which can be fed to two surround back speakers); not
available in systems with no surround back speakers.
© 2002/2003 bel canto design, Ltd.
Page 31
PRePro User’s Guide rev1103
DTS Neo:6 Music: Similar to Neo:6 Cinema, but for music. It feeds stereo signals directly to
the front channels, bypassing the decoder, while feeding the center, surround side, and surround
back channels with ambient information derived from the recording, to add spaciousness.
DTS Neo:6: Extracts rear surround information from DTS 3/2.1 tracks, Not available for other
signals.
DTS Neo:6 / Matrix: Extracts rear surround information from DTS-ES Matrix signals. Not
available for other signals, including DTS-ES Discrete signals, which carry discrete rear-channel
information.
DTS 2/0: Two channel stereo recordings using the DTS signal format. Processing modes
available are mostly the same as those for stereo CDs.
