Congratulations!
Thank you for purchasing the Intimus 4T Summit Wireless Home Theater
System. You are one of the first in the world to experience the high
quality audio and easy setup of truly wireless home theater! While we
did our absolute best to eliminate every possible wire, the realities of
power had to be considered. So please make sure to plug in your
speakers and the Home Theater One Wireless Transmitter to a wall outlet
when you get going!
Once you've read through this guide and placed your speakers, your
Home Theater One Wireless Transmitter is ready to deliver high quality
multi-channel audio from Blu-ray players, cable or satellite TV boxes, and
game consoles, through an uncompressed, uninterrupted digital signal,
right to your speakers.
Just turn on the power and your Aperion Audio speakers, coupled with
the patented Summit SpeakerFinder™ technology, determine all of the
speaker locations and audio channels in your room. Using patented
MyZone™ technology, the remote gives you total control over your room
by setting the audio sweet-spot with correct volume and phase at the
touch of a button! So no matter where you sit, MyZone™ tailors a custom
sweet-spot for you, every time.
We hope you enjoy the new and wonderful world of wireless home
theater! If you have any questions at all, don't hesitate to give us a call at
888-880-8992 and one of our Home Theater Gurus will be happy to
help you out.

12.1 ASSOCIATE Button
The ASSOCIATE Button puts the speaker in associate mode so the Home
Theater One Wireless Transmitter can determine what speaker should be the
anchor speaker. This operates much like the Associate button on a wireless
keyboard or mouse on computer systems. Only use the ASSOCIATE button on
one speaker in a room during initial setup.

To operate in the U-NII band 5 GHz radio channels, the Home Theater One
Wireless Transmitter must be able to detect several forms of government radar
signatures, and when detected, automatically change to an unused channel.
This automatic changing of channels is called Frequency Agility. The Home
Theater One Wireless Transmitter will also automatically change channels if any
interference-not just radar-is detected on a channel.

Owner’s Guide
8. Pressing MyZone keeps showing “Please Retry.”
The following shows a typical Aperion Wireless speaker back panel. The
speakers must be plugged-in and powered on for the system to work. When the
Home Theater One Wireless Transmitter is powered off, the speakers go into a
low-power standby state and should remain plugged in at all times. The
speakers will "power up" again when you turn on the Home Theater One
Wireless Transmitter.
1
a. Make sure there are no obstacles between the front-left, center, and front-right
speaker and the MyZone sensor in the remote control.
b. Make sure the remote is pointed at the center speaker when pressing the MyZone
button, and keep it pointed at the center speaker until the MyZone operation
completes. If there are still issues, replace the batteries in the remote control and
try again.
c. If your Home Theater One Wireless Transmitter is in the back of the room, for
instance if you are using a projector, you will need a IR repeater to use the MyZone
functionality.
9. Pressing MyZone keeps showing “Unavailable.”
This happens when the system had a difficult time locating your speakers. To correct,
follow these steps:
1. Make sure each speaker can physically “see” each other.
2
2. Remove the grill from the center speaker.
3. Run the “Refresh Map” command in the Menu.
When the system successfully locates all of the speakers, MyZone will operate.
10. Added new speakers to the system, but they are not making any sound.

11. I am playing a DVD or Blu-ray disc that has surround sound, but I am only hearing
audio out the left front and right front speakers.
Make sure your Blu-ray or DVD player is properly setup to send surround
information out of the HDMI or digital ports. For systems using HDMI, the best
performance is "Bitstream" mode. For systems using optical or coax digital, make
sure the system is sending out Dolby Digital or DTS, not "downmix" or "PCM."
Please refer to your player's installation manual for detailed instructions.

3. Remove the speaker grill from the center speaker. It can be reinstalled after the
system has been successfully set up.
4. Use the Refresh Map menu item (see the section “Refresh Map” for more details).
5. The map shows my proper speaker setup, but the input signal display shows "No Sig"
and I can't hear anything.
When the display shows "No Sig", that means it is not receiving any audio data from
your player. Check the following:
Owner’s Guide
6. Installation and Setup
Follow these instructions to initially setup and use the Home Theater One
Wireless Transmitter, remote control, and your Aperion wireless speakers.
Check out our video to see the setup in action at:

1. Place Your Speakers
1. That the Home Theater One is set to the right source. Press the button on the
remote control for the input you want to use.
a. Arrange your speakers as shown in the “Speaker Placement” section.
2. Your audio device is turned on.
c. The speakers must all be able to “see” each other and point toward the center of
the room. Do not place them behind furniture, plants, or other objects (this
includes the subwoofer).

Owner’s Guide
3. The display Map shows a different number of speakers than I have.
To get the best audio reproduction from surround-sound encoded material,
Dolby and DTS recommend you place the speakers in a configuration as close
as possible to the following diagram.
Make sure each speaker can directly “see” the other speakers in the room and
that they are pointed toward the center of the room. This enables the
SpeakerFinder technology in your system to create the most accurate speaker
map; delivering the best surround-sound.
Speaker Placement Diagram
All speakers must be powered on when the Home Theater One Wireless Transmitter
is started. If they are not powered on, they will not produce sound. Also, if there are
obstructions in front of the speaker, the system might not be able to find it with the
SpeakerFinder sensors. The system shows only the speakers it can find.
For instance, if you have a 7.1 system (seven speakers and a subwoofer), but the
system can only find five speakers and a subwoofer, the display shows “Map 5.1”.
To correct these issues, follow these steps:
1. Make sure all the speakers are powered on. If a speaker is powered on, you’ll see
a blinking green light on the back panel of each speaker.
2. Make sure each speaker has a clear, direct path to the other speakers in the system.
Make sure no furniture, plants, pets, or people are in front of the speakers.
3
3. Remove the speaker grill from the center speaker. It can be reinstalled after the
system has been successfully set up.

8. Speaker Placement Tips and Hints
10.6.1 Speaker Volume Settings
Note: Enter MENU to find this option.
1. Where should I place the front speakers?
The first step in optimizing the speaker system is to run MyZone (refer to
"MyZone Optimization" for details). For almost all situations, this is all that is
needed. MyZone automatically adjusts speaker volume based on your location
and the speaker's location. However, if more fine tuning is desired, the Speaker
Volume adjustments can be used.
1. When entering the Speaker Volume adjustments, the display shows the current
selected speaker and it's current adjustment.
Current Speaker
The front speakers should be placed in front of the center speaker. This will allow the
center to "see" the front speakers during startup. If you still have problems, try
removing the speaker grill on the center speaker. After the system starts successfully,
you may reinstall the grill.
2. What can be done to get the best speaker location performance?
For the best speaker location mapping, each speaker must have a direct view of all
of the other speakers in the system. Make sure no furniture, plants, pets, or people
are blocking the path between the speakers during setup. It is also important that the
center speaker is centered directly above or below the television and placed with
the correct side up. Finally, make sure the fronts of the speakers are pointed toward
the center of the room. Following these steps will ensure an accurate map and the
best possible sound.
3. How do I configure my subwoofer properly?
Current Level Setting
2. Pressing LEFT or RIGHT on the remote selects different speakers. Pressing UP or
DOWN adjusts the level of the currently selected speaker in 1 dB steps.
3. When finished, press EXIT to return to the main display.
10.6.2 Test Tone
Note: Enter MENU to find this option.
The Test Tone generator can be used to confirm the automatic setup of the
speakers. It can also be used, along with a Sound Pressure Level (SPL) meter to
do further adjustment to the sound. For most optimization, MyZone is all that is
needed. Refer to refer to “MyZone Optimization” for details.
1. When entering the Test Tone generator, the display shows the current selected
speaker and its current adjustment. A white noise, static-like sound is emitted from
the current selected speaker. All other speakers remain silent.
18
Due to the way MyZone works, the speaker closest to the subwoofer should have its
ASSOCIATE button pressed during first-time setup. If a different speaker was used
and the volume of the subwoofer is inconsistent when using the MyZone feature,
perform a factory reset (see page 9), and go through initial setup again using the
ASSOCIATE button on the speaker closest to the subwoofer. To manually adjust the
subwoofer volume, use the "Speaker Volume" Menu item. (See "Speaker Volume
Settings” in the Menu section for more details).
Note: Do not use the ASSOCIATE button on the subwoofer.
4. How can I adjust the subwoofer volume?
To adjust the volume of the subwoofer, use the Speaker Volume menu item (see the
"Speaker Volume Settings" in the Menu section for more details).
5. I set everything up, but the locations aren't working correctly.
Please be certain that your speakers are not hidden behind furniture or other
obstructions. They need to maintain line of sight with each other. Also, try removing
the speaker grilles while running through system setup, or "refreshing" the speaker
map. This can help improve speaker detection. You can replace the speaker grilles
after setup completes.

10.5 MyZone Optimization
MyZone custom tailors the sound from all the speakers to your location in the
room. Just point the remote at the center speaker and press the MyZone button.
You might hear some faint rapid clicks while MyZone is in process. This is
normal and the process should only take a few seconds.
MyZone finds your location and automatically adjusts the audio delay and
individual speaker volume and optimizes the audio to your seating location to
make it the best seat in the house.
If the display shows "Please Retry," make sure the remote and the MyZone
sensor are pointed at the center speaker, and there is nothing between the
remote and front-left, center, and front-right speakers. If this happens, please
press the MyZone button again to repeat the process.
If the display shows "Unavailable," the system had a difficult time locating your
speakers. Make sure each speaker can physically "see" each other, remove the
grill from the center speaker, and run the "Refresh Map" command in the menu
(see Menu section). When the system successfully locates all of the speakers,
MyZone will operate.
10.6 Menu
To enter the menu, press MENU on the remote control. Press MENU again or
LEFT ARROW and RIGHT ARROW on the remote control to choose between
the menu items. Press ENTER to select the current menu item. At any time,
press EXIT to return to the main screen.
Note: The Home Theater One Wireless Transmitter uses SpeakerFinder technology to
automatically set up the system at power-up. The options provided in the menus
are for additional fine tuning, and are not required for use.
