Connections
Subwoofer
Surround (L)
Front Speakers
Place these speakers in front of your listening position, facing inwards (about
45°) toward you. Place the front 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.
Center Speaker
It is best to install the Center Speaker 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. Position them about 2 to 3
feet (60 to 90cm) above your ear, facing slightly downward.
* Unlike the front and center speakers, the surround speakers are used mainly
for sound effects. Sound will not come from them all the time.
Subwoofer
The position of the subwoofer is not so critical. Place it anywhere you like.
* The appearance of your speakers may differ from the illustrations in this manual.
* Match the speaker cables to the colored label on the back of the speaker, and then plug them into the
jack of the same color. See page 11 for exact instructions.

What is Bluetooth?
Bluetooth is a technology that enables Bluetoothcompliant devices to interconnect with each other
easily using a short, wireless connection.
• A Bluetooth device may hum or malfunction:
- When a part of your body is in contact with the
receiving/transmitting system of the Bluetooth
device or the Home Theater.
- When it is subject to electrical variation from
obstructions caused by a wall, corner, or office
partitioning.
- When it is exposed to electrical interference from
same frequency-band devices including medical
equipment, microwave ovens, and wireless
LANs.
• Pair the Home Theater with the Bluetooth device
while the two are close together.
• The further the distance is between the Home
Theater and the 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 Home Theater has an effective reception range
of up to 32.8 feet in all directions if there are no
obstacles. The connection will be automatically
cut off if the device is out of this range. Even within
this range, the sound quality may be degraded by
obstacles such as walls or doors.

Apps
Your home theater offers an extensive collection of
news, movies, weather, and other content you can
download directly to and enjoy on your home theater.
First, check the network and make sure the home
theater is connected to the Internet. Your home
theater must be connected to the Internet to use the
Apps feature.
The apps offered through the Apps feature work
much like their on-line versions or, if different, are easy
to use.
The apps require you to create accounts before you
can use them. Although you can create an account
at most of these sites through your home theater, it is
easier and quicker to create an account by visiting the
sites on line using a PC, laptop, or tablet with Internet
access. Note that in some cases, you will need to
use the home theater and a PC, laptop, or tablet to
establish an account. The main difference between
the regular on-line versions and the versions you can
access through your home theater is that with the
home theater versions, you use your remote to enter
letters and numbers as opposed to a keyboard.
