Placing Your Speakers To create the most realistic sound environment possible, you should place your speakers in a circle with the listening position at its center. you should angle each speaker so it directly faces the listening position. use the diagram below as a guide. TV SUB FL Placing the Left and Right Speakers place the left and right speakers along the circle, about 30 degrees from the center line and angled toward the listener. Placing the Subwoofer as a room’s shape and volume can have dramatic effects on a subwoofer’s performance, it is best to experiment with the placement so that you will find the location that produces the best results in your listening room. with that in mind, these rules will help you get started: • placing the subwoofer next to a wall will increase the amount of bass in the room. • placing the subwoofer in a corner will maximize the amount of bass in the room. • In many rooms, placing the subwoofer along the same plane as the left and right speakers can produce the best integration between the sound of the subwoofer and that of the left and right speakers. • In some rooms, the best performance could even result from placing the subwoofer behind the listening position. a good way to determine the best location for the subwoofer is by temporarily placing it in the listening position and playing music with strong bass content. Move around to various locations in the room while the system is playing (putting your ears where the subwoofer would be placed), and listen until you find the location where the bass performance is best. place the subwoofer in that location. FR Speaker Positioning for 2.1 Channel System 10 HK 3700/3770 Connections Connections Connecting Source Devices Connecting the Speakers The HK 3700/3770 is designed to process audio input signals and playback the audio. These signals originate in what are known as source devices including your dvd player, Cd player, dvR (digital video recorder) or other recorder, tape deck, game console, cable or satellite television box, or Mp3 player. although the tuner is built into the HK 3700/3770, it also counts as a source, even though no external connections are needed, other than the FM and aM antennas. Speaker cables carry an amplified signal from the stereo receiver’s speaker terminals to each loudspeaker. each cable contains two wire conductors or leads that are differentiated in some way, such as with colors or stripes. The differentiation helps you maintain proper polarity, without which your receiver’s low frequency performance may suffer. each speaker is connected to the stereo receiver’s speaker output terminals using two wires, one positive (+) and one negative (–). always connect the positive terminal on the speaker, which is usually colored red, to the positive terminal on the stereo receiver. The negative terminals on the speakers and the stereo receiver are black. always connect the colored (+) terminal on the stereo receiver to the (+) terminal on the speaker (usually red), and the black (–) terminal on the stereo receiver to the (–) terminal on the speaker (usually black). Connect your speakers as shown in the illustration. Connecting the Radio Antennas 1. 2. Connect the supplied FM antenna to the stereo receiver’s FM 75Ω Radio antenna connector. For the best reception, extend the FM antenna as far as possible. bend and fold the base of the supplied aM antenna as shown and connect the antenna wires to the stereo receiver’s aM and gnd connectors (you can connect either wire to either connector). Move the antenna as necessary to minimize background noise. AM Antenna (supplied) FM Antenna (supplied) IMPORTANT: Make sure the (+) and (–) bare wires do not touch each other or the other terminal. Touching wires can cause a short circuit that can damage your stereo receiver. Connect the speakers as shown in the illustration.

Connecting IR Remote Input The HK 3700/3770 is equipped with an IR Remote Input and an IR Remote Output to facilitate use of your system with a remote control in a variety of situations. when the HK 3700/3770 is placed in such a way that aiming the remote at the front panel IR sensor is difficult, such as inside a cabinet or facing away from the listener, you can connect an external IR receiver to the IR Remote Input jack. If any of your source devices are equipped with a compatible IR Remote Input, use a 1/8” mini-plug interconnect cable (not included) to connect the HK 3700/3770’s Remote IR Output to the source device’s Remote IR Input, which will pass any applicable remote signals transmitted through the HK 3700/3770 to the source device. This enables you to control your sources even when the HK 3700/3770 itself is controlled via an external IR receiver. To control more than one source device using the Remote IR Output, connect all sources in such a way to the HK 3700/3770’s Remote IR Output that the first device’s Remote IR is connected to the next device’s Remote IR Input, and so on. Connecting Trigger Output Connect this output to a compatible trigger input such as a Harman Kardon subwoofer. Consult the owner’s manual for the subwoofer to set its trigger input correctly, and the subwoofer will automatically turn on or off when the HK 3700/3770 is turned On or OFF. In addition, the Trigger Outputs are used with the Subwoofer link Switches to conserve energy by powering off the subwoofer’s amplifier when it is not needed. The Subwoofer Trigger Outputs send a signal of 12 volts dC. Connecting AC Power Connect the supplied aC power cord to the stereo receiver’s aC Input connector and then to a working, non-switched aC power outlet. NOTE: Remove the protective plastic from the stereo receiver’s front panel so it does not reduce the remote control’s effectiveness. 12 HK 3700/3770 Using the Remote Control when using the remote control, aim it towards the receiver’s front panel. Make sure that no objects, such as furniture block the remote’s view of the system. bright lights, fluorescent lights, and plasma-video displays may interfere with the function of the remote. • The remote control has a range of about 20 feet (6.1 m), depending on the lighting conditions. • you can use the remote at an angle of up to 30° to either side of the receiver. If the remote seems to operate intermittently, or if pressing a button on the remote does not cause the remote control backlights to light up, make sure that the batteries are inserted correctly. If the remote still operates intermittently, replace the batteries with the new ones.
