Connections
This section involves various methods of connecting the product to other external components.
Before moving or installing the product, be sure to turn off the power and disconnect the power cord.

Position of the product
Place it on a stand or cabinet shelf, or under the TV stand.
Selecting the Listening Position
The listening position should be located about 2.5 to 3 times the distance of the TV's screen size away from the TV.
Example : For 32" TV's 2~2.4m
For 55" TV's 3.5~4m
Front Speakers
Place these speakers in front of your listening position, facing inwards (about 45°) toward
you. Place the speakers so that their tweeters will be at the same height as your ear. Align
the front face of the front speakers with the front face of the center speaker or place them
slightly in front of the center speakers.
Centre Speaker
It is best to install it at the same height as the front speakers. You can also install it directly
over or under the TV.
Surround
Speakers
Place these speakers to the side of your listening position. If there isn't enough room, place
these speakers so they face each other. Place them about 60 to 90cm above your ear,
facing slightly downward.
* Unlike the front and center speakers, the surround speakers are used to handle mainly
sound effects and sound will not come from them all the time.
Subwoofer
The position of the subwoofer is not so critical. Place it anywhere you like.
| CAUTION |
Do not let children play with or near the speakers. They could get hurt if the speaker falls.
When connecting the speaker wires to the speakers, make sure that the polarity (+/–) is correct.
Keep the subwoofer out of the reach of children so as to prevent them from inserting their hands or alien substances
into the duct (hole) of the subwoofer.
Do not hang the subwoofer on the wall through the duct (hole).
| NOTE |
If you place a speaker near your TV set, screen colour may be distorted because of the magnetic field generated by
the speaker. If this occurs, place the speaker away from your TV set.
