Safety precautions
Fuse
(5 ampere)
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.
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.
Foreign matter

shock or malfunction.
Do not let liquids get into the unit. This can cause electric shock or
malfunction. If this occurs, immediately disconnect the unit from the power
supply and contact your dealer.

gases which can ignite if sprayed into the unit.
Service

indicators fail to light, smoke appears, or any other problem that is not
covered in these operating instructions occurs, disconnect the AC mains
lead and contact your dealer or an authorized service center. Electric
shock or damage to the unit can occur if the unit is repaired, disassembled

Place on a shelf or
rack.
Place the front, center, and surround speakers at approximately the same distance
from the seating position.
The angles in the diagram are approximate.
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.
Positioning for best effect
How you set up your speakers can affect the
bass and the sound field.
Note the following points.
• Attach the included rubber pads to the base
of the center speaker (SC-HT15: center and
surround speakers). This prevents vibration
from causing the speakers to move or fall
over. Use 4 pads per speaker.
• 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.
Preventing the speakers from falling over
Attach screw eyes (not included) to secure the speakers to a wall
(diagram on the right).
• 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 installation may result in
damage to the wall or speakers.

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.
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 or fire. Consult a qualified
service person if damage has occurred or if you
experience a sudden change in performance.
• Do not attempt to attach these speakers to walls using
methods other than those described in this manual.

the speakers to wall. Improper attachment may result in damage to the wall and
speakers.
• When mounting the speakers to walls, use a string (not included) to prevent them
from falling (è page 6).
• (SC-HT17 front and surround speakers, SC-HT15 front speakers) Use of optional
speaker cables are recommended when mounting. (You can also remove the
speaker cables from the pipes supplied with this system.)
• Observe the diameter and length of the
screws and the distance between screws
as shown in the diagram.
• The stands must be able to support over
10 kg.
• The stands must be stable even if the
speakers are in a high position.
