INSTALLING THE WALL MOUNT
You can use the wall mount bracket to mount this unit on a wall.
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 a different wall that can support the unit's weight.
•Purchase and use the fixing 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 (not supplied).
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 Centre 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.

▪▪ Do not hang onto the installed unit and avoid any impact to the unit.
▪▪ Secure the unit firmly to the wall so that it does not fall off. If the unit falls off, it may
cause an injury or damage the product.
▪▪ When the unit is installed on a wall, please make sure that children do not pull any of the
connecting cables, as it may cause it to fall.
▪▪ For the optimal performance of a wall mount installation, install the speaker system at
least 2 inches (5 cm) below the TV.
▪▪ For a better sound experience, place the subwoofer away from the wall at least 12 inches
(30 cm) when installing.

▪▪ Before moving or installing the product, be sure to turn off the power and disconnect
the power cord.
▪▪ If the main unit is powered off, the wireless subwoofer will be in the standby mode and
the STANDBY LED on the upper side will come on after the LINK indicator (Blue LED)
blinks for 30 seconds.
▪▪ If you use a device that uses the same frequency (2.4GHz) near the system, interference
may cause some sound interruption.
▪▪ The maximum wireless signal transmission distance between the main unit and
subwoofer 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 water and moisture.
▪▪ For optimal listening performance, make sure that the area around the wireless
subwoofer location is clear of any obstructions.

You can use a Bluetooth device to enjoy music with high quality stereo sound, all without wires!
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 Soundbar.
-- 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 Soundbar with the Bluetooth device while they are close together.
•The further the distance is between the Soundbar 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.
