Notes
• Do not place this system on/under any other components such as Blu-ray disc player in a pile. The vibration of this system
may cause system failure, etc. in other components.
• Keep enough ventilation space on the front, rear, and bottom side (that attached legs) of this system. Do not place this
system on a thick carpet etc.
• If the picture on your CRT TV screen becomes blurred or distorted, we recommend moving the system away from your TV.
• Low frequency sound produced by the subwoofer integrated receiver may be heard differently depending on the listening
position and subwoofer location. To enjoy desired sounds, try changing the location of the subwoofer integrated receiver.
• Depending on your installation environment, connections to external components can be done before installing this system.
We recommend that you temporarily place and arrange all components in order to decide which procedure is best done first.
Placing the speaker
You can place the speaker on a rack or attach it to a wall. Select an installation method that suits your environment.
■ Placing the speaker beneath/under a TV
Example 1:
With attaching TV

• If there is any obstacle (TV stand, etc.) under the speaker,
use the supplied stands as shown in Example 1.
• If you are not using the supplied stands as shown in
Example 2, attach the supplied non-skid pads to the
bottom of the speaker.

Notes
• Attach the speaker to a rack or wall. Do not attach the
speaker to a wall that is made of weak materials such as
plaster or veneered woods. Doing so may cause the
speaker to fall.
• Use commercially available screws that can support the
weight of the installation.
• Make sure you use specified screws to attach the speaker.
Using clamps other than specified screws, such as short
screws, nails, or two-sided tape, may cause the speaker to
fall.
• When connecting the speaker, fix the speaker cables in
place where they will not become loose. If your foot or
hand accidentally gets caught on a loose speaker cable, the
speaker may fall.
• After attaching the speaker, check that the speaker is fixed
securely. Yamaha will bear no responsibility for any
accidents caused by improper installations.

■ AIR SURROUND XTREME
■ Channel (ch)
This system employs new technologies and algorithms
that make it possible to achieve 7-channel surround
sound with only front speakers, and without using wall
reflections.
A channel is an audio type that has been divided based
on range and other characteristics.
Ex. 7.1 channel
• Front speakers, Left (1ch), Right (1ch)
• Center speaker (1ch)
• Surround speakers, Left (1ch), Right (1ch)
• Surround back speakers, Left (1ch), Right (1ch)
• Subwoofer (1ch × 0.1* = 0.1ch)
Ordinarily, two front speakers, a center speaker, two
surround speakers, and a subwoofer are necessary for
enjoying 5.1 channel surround sound.
Typical 5.1 channel speaker system
* In contrast to a full 1-channel band, a component
designed to enhance low frequency sound for added
effect.
■ Deep Color
Front speakers
Subwoofer
Center speaker
Surround speakers
Virtual 7.1 channel
The AIR SURROUND XTREME technology, using
only front speakers and subwoofer, enables you to
enjoy a realistic 7.1 channel sound by simulating
sound from virtual speakers at center, surround, and
surround backs.
The sound image of the system
Deep Color refers to the use of various color depths in
displays, up from the 24-bit depths in previous
versions of the HDMI specification. This extra bit
depth allows HDTVs and other displays go from
millions of colors to billions of colors and eliminate
on-screen color banding for smooth tonal transitions
and subtle gradations between colors. The increased
contrast ratio can represent many times more shades of
gray between black and white. Also Deep Color
increases the number of available colors within the
boundaries defined by the RGB or YCbCr color space.
■ Dolby Digital
The system creates the virtual 7.1 channel surround sound with the
subwoofer integrated receiver and the speaker.
C: Center speaker
FR, FL: Front speakers
SW: Subwoofer
SR, SL: Surround virtual speakers
SBR, SBL: Surround back virtual speakers
27 En
ADDITIONAL
INFORMATION
Digital surround sound system which is developed by
Dolby Laboratories provides completely independent
multi-channel audio. With 3 front channels (left,
center, and right) and 2 surround stereo channels,
Dolby Digital provides five full-range audio channels.
With an additional channel especially for bass effects
(called LFE, or low frequency effect), the system has a
total of 5.1 channels (LFE is counted as 0.1 channel).
By using 2 channel stereo for the surround speakers,
more accurate moving sound effects and surround
sound environment are possible than with Dolby
Surround.
Additional information
■ Dolby Pro Logic II
■ x.v.Color
It is an improved matrix decoding technology that
provides better spatiality and directionality on Dolby
Surround programmed material; provides a
convincing three-dimensional sound field on
conventional stereo music recordings; and is ideally
suited to bring the surround experience to automotive
sound. While conventional surround programming is
fully compatible with Dolby Pro Logic II decoders,
soundtracks will be able to be encoded specifically to
take full advantage of Pro Logic II playback, including
separate left and right surround channels.
A color space standard supported by HDMI version
1.3. It is a more extensive color space than sRGB, and
allows the expression of colors that could not be
expressed before. While remaining compatible with
the color gamut of sRGB standards, “x.v.Color”
expands the color space and can thus produce more
vivid, natural images. It is particularly effective for
still pictures and computer graphics.
■ DTS
Digital surround sound system developed by DTS,
Inc., which provides 5.1 channel audio. With an
abundance of audio data, it is able to provide
authentic-sounding effects.
■ HDMI
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is the
first industrysupported, uncompressed, all-digital
audio/video interface. Providing an interface between
any source (such as a set-top box or AV receiver) and
an audio/video monitor (such as a digital television),
HDMI supports standard, enhanced or high-definition
video as well as multichannel digital audio using a
single cable. HDMI transmits all ATSC HDTV
standards and supports 8 channel digital audio, with
bandwidth to spare to accommodate future
enhancements and requirements. When used in
combination with HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital
Content Protection), HDMI provides a secure audio/
video interface that meets the security requirements of
content providers and system operators. For further
information on HDMI, visit the HDMI website at
“http://www.hdmi.org/.”
■ PCM (Pulse Code Modulation)
A signal that is changed to digital format without
compression. A CD is recorded with 16-bit sound at
44.1 kHz, while DVD recording is anywhere from 16
bits at 48 kHz to 24 bits at 192 kHz, which makes it a
higher quality sound than CD.
■ Sampling frequency
The number of sampling (process for digitalizing
analog signals) per second. In principle, the higher the
sampling rate, the wider the frequency range that can
be played back, and the higher the quantized bit rate,
the finer the sound that can be reproduced.
