Using the PTV speakers

If you are using a system that delivers Dolby Pro-Logic* surround sound,
such as the HTS-100, you will probably want to use the PTV speakers°
as center channel speakers. A center channel speaker adds to the realism
of surround sound systems such as Dolby Pro-Logic
It does this by
allowing certain sounds, such as voice, to be directed to the center channel. In this way, the voices appear to be coming directly from the screen,
in the exact location you would hear them in a mov:.e theater.
E>Important:
If you make this connection, the volume for your speal:ers will be controlled by the amplifier. If you are using an "invisible."
