Installation Precautions
• Install on a vertical wall only.
• For the installation, avoid a location with high temperature or humidity, or a wall that cannot sustain the
weight of the set.
• Check the strength of the wall. If the wall is not strong enough to support the unit, reinforce the wall or
install the unit on different wall that can support the unit's weight.
• Purchase and use the flxing screws or mollys appropriate for the kind of wall you have (plaster board, iron
board, wood, etc.). If possible, fix the support screws into wall studs.
• Connect cables from the unit to external devices before you install it on the wall.
• Make sure the unit is turned off and unplugged before you install it. Otherwise, it may cause an electric shock.
1. Place the wall mount bracket on a wall surface and then
secure it with two screws.
If you are hanging the unit below a TV, be sure to install the
wall mount bracket so that the arrow ( ) is placed in the
center of the TV.
Also make sure the unit is at least two inches (5 cm)
below the TV.
2. Align the two HOLDER-SCREWs with the screw holes
on the left and right sides of the MAIN UNIT, and then fix
them to the main unit with the supplied screws.
3. Insert the USB converter into the unit before installing it
on the wall.
4. Fit the unit into the corresponding slots of the wall mount
bracket. For secure installation, make sure the mounting
studs slide firmly down into the bottom of the slots.

▪▪ If you use a device that uses the same frequency (2.4GHz) near the system, interference may
cause some sound interruption.
▪▪ The transmission distance of the wireless signal between the main unit and sub is about 33 ft.,
but may vary depending on your operating environment. If a steel-concrete or metallic wall is
between the main unit and the wireless subwoofer, the system may not operate at all, because
the wireless signal cannot penetrate metal.
▪▪ If the main unit doesn't make a wireless connection, follow steps 1-5 above to retry the
connection between the main unit and wireless subwoofer.
▪▪ The wireless receiving antenna is built into the wireless subwoofer. Keep the unit away from

What is Bluetooth?
Bluetooth is a technology that enables Bluetooth-compliant devices to interconnect easily with each other using
a short wireless connection.
• A Bluetooth device may cause noise or malfunction, depending on usage, when:
-- A part of your body is in contact with the receiving/transmitting system of the Bluetooth device or the Air
Track.
-- It is subject to electrical variation from obstructions caused by a wall, corner, or office partition.
-- It is exposed to electrical interference from same frequency-band devices including medical equipment,
microwave ovens, and wireless LANs.
• Pair the Air Track with the Bluetooth device while they are close together.
• The further the distance is between Air Track and Bluetooth device, the worse the quality is.
If the distance exceeds the Bluetooth operational range, the connection is lost.
• In poor reception-sensitivity areas, the Bluetooth connection may not work properly.
• The Bluetooth connection only works when it is close to the set. The connection will be automatically cut off if
the Bluetooth device is out of range. Even within range, the sound quality may be degraded by obstacles
such as walls or doors.
• This wireless device may cause electric interference during its operation.

• If the Bluetooth device has failed to pair with the Air Track, delete the previous “[Samsung] AirTrack” found
by the Bluetooth device and have it search for the Air Track again.
5. Play music on the connected device.
• You can listen to the music playing on the connected Bluetooth device over the Crystal Surround Air Track
system.
• In BT mode, Play/Repeat/Stop/Next/Prev functions are not available.
▪▪ You may be required to enter a PIN code (password) when connecting the Bluetooth device to
the Air Track. If the PIN code input window appears, enter <0000>.
▪▪ The Air Track supports SBC data (44.1kHz, 48kHz).
▪▪ The AVRCP feature is not supported.
▪▪ Connect only to a Bluetooth device that supports the A2DP (AV) function.
▪▪ You cannot connect to a Bluetooth device that supports only the HF (Hands Free) function.
▪▪ Only one Bluetooth device can be paired at a time.
▪▪ Once you have turned off Air Track and the pairing is disconnected, the pairing will not be

▪▪ Search or connection may not be performed properly by Air Track in the following cases:
-- If there is a strong electrical field around Air Track.
-- If several Bluetooth devices are simultaneously paired with AirTrack
-- If the Bluetooth device is turned off, not in place, or malfunctions
-- Note that such devices as microwave ovens, wireless LAN adaptors, fluorescent lights, and gas
stoves use the same frequency range as the Bluetooth device, which can cause electric
interference.
