Safety precautions
Placement
Set the unit up on an even surface away from direct sunlight, high
temperatures, high humidity, and excessive vibration. These conditions
can damage the cabinet and other components, thereby shortening the
unit's service life.
Do not place heavy items on the unit.
Safety Precautions
Voltage
Do not use high voltage power sources. This can overload the unit and
cause a fire.
Do not use a DC power source. Check the source carefully when
setting the unit up on a ship or other place where DC is used.
AC mains lead protection
Ensure the AC mains lead is connected correctly and not damaged.
Poor connection and lead damage can cause fire or electric shock. Do
not pull, bend, or place heavy items on the lead.
Grasp the plug firmly when unplugging the lead. Pulling the AC mains
lead can cause electric shock.
Do not handle the plug with wet hands. This can cause electric shock.

Positioning for best effect
How you set up your speakers can affect the bass and the
sound field.
Note the following points.
• Place speakers on flat secure bases.
• Placing speakers too close to floors, walls, and corners can
result in excessive bass. Cover walls and windows with a
thick curtain.
Note
Keep your speakers at least 10 mm away from the system for
proper ventilation.
3 Surround
speaker (L)
Place the front, center, and surround speakers at approximately the same distance from the seating position.
The angles in the diagram are approximate.
RQTV0110
Front speakers (left, right)
Place on the left and right of the TV at seated ear height so that there is good coherency between the picture and sound.
Center speaker
Place underneath or above the center of the TV. Aim the speaker at the seating area.
Surround speakers (left, right)
Place on the side of or slightly behind the seating area, higher than ear level.
Subwoofer
The subwoofer can be placed in any position as long as it is at a reasonable distance from the TV.
Note that some experimentation can yield the smoothest low frequency performance. Placement near a corner can increase the
apparent output level, but can result in unnatural bass.

If irregular colouring occurs on your television
The supplied speakers are designed to be used close to a
television, but the picture may be affected with some televisions
and setup combinations.
If this occurs, turn the television off for about 30 minutes.
The television's demagnetising function should correct the
problem. If it persists, move the speakers further away from the
television.
SC-HT40GN-offset.indb 4
Caution
• The main unit and supplied speakers are only to be
used as indicated in this manual. Failure to do so may
lead to damage to the receiver and/or the speakers,
and may result in the risk of fire. Consult a qualified
service person if damage occurs or if a sudden change
in performance is apparent.
• Do not attempt to attach these speakers to walls using
methods other than those described in this manual.

Preventing the speakers from falling over
Attach screw eyes (not included) to secure the speakers to a wall (diagram on the

• Obtain the screws appropriate to the walls and pillars to which they are going to
be fastened.
• Consult with a qualified housing contractor concerning the appropriate procedure
when attaching to a concrete wall or a surface that may not have strong enough
support. Improper attachment may result in damage to the wall or speakers.
