Add a subwoofer to hear excellent bass sound, DTS digital surround or Dolby Digital surround. Set up a listening position; a couch or chairs, etc. as shown in the speaker positioning example. • Front speakers We recommend that the height of the tweeters of the front speakers be at the same height as the listener’s ears, to the left and right of the TV. See speaker positioning example for speaker placement. • Center speaker Ideally, the center speaker and front speakers would be positioned at the same height. Place the center speaker above or below the television. • Rear speakers (Surround) Place left and right surround speakers behind the listening area. These speakers help recreate sound motion and atmosphere; required for surround playback. For optimum sound effects, do not place the rear speakers too far behind the listening position. Install them at or above the height of the listener’s ears. It is also effective to point the rear speakers toward a wall or ceiling, to further disFront Speaker Center Speaker Front Speaker perse the sound. (Right) (Left) If the room is small and the listeners area is near the rear wall, set the rear speakers opposite each other about 2 - 3 feet higher than the listeners’ ears. • Subwoofer Subwoofer Place it an appropriate position. (See Surround Surround speaker positioning example.) Speaker (Right) Speaker (Left) ■ In Dolby Digital or Dolby Pro Logic mode it is assumed that the time it takes the sound from each speaker to reach the listener, is the same. But if the time interval from the center or rear left and right speakers to the listener is closer than the time interval from the listener to the front left and right speaker, the sound of center or rear left and right speaker will reach the listener first; instead of the sound of the front speakers. (It is desirable that the sound from the front speakers reach the listener first.) Dolby Digital and Dolby Pro Logic modes provide speaker time delay adjustments to resolve this problem:; you can manually set the delay time of the center or rear left and right speakers so that the sound from all speakers will arrive simultaneously to the listener. Delay Time Setting 1. Center delay time setting If the distance of Dc is equal to or longer than the Df in the figure, set the mode to 0ms. Otherwise, change the setting according to the table below. (A) = Df - Dc Ideal Front Speaker 2. Surround delay time setting If the distance of Df is equal to the Ds in the figure, set the mode to 0ms. Otherwise, change the setting according to the table below. (B) = Df - Ds 3. Front delay time setting Speaker Positioning Example If the distance of Ds or Dc is longer than the Df in the figure, change the setting according to the table below. (C) = Ds or Dc - Df Ideal Surround Speaker Notes • We recommend that you use magnetic shielded speakers for the front left/right speakers and center speaker to prevent video noise from appearing on the TV picture. • Use speakers in your setup that have similar tonal characteristics.
