/!

IIFront left and right speakers and center

speaker

. Place the front speakers with their front surfaces as flush with

TV or monitor screen as possible.

. Place the center speaker between the front left and right speakers and no further from the listening position than the front speakers.

. Place each speaker so that sound is aimed at the location of the listener's ears when at the main listening position.

IISurround left and right

speakers

. Place the surround speakers approximately 1 meter (40 inches) above the ear level of a seated listener on the direct left and right of them or slightly behind.

IISubwoofer

. The subwoofer reproduces powerful deep bass sounds.

Place a subwoofer anywhere in the front as desired.

2, Press the CURSOR UP(A)/DOWN(v) buttons to select the desired speaker.

3, Press the CURSOR LEFT(_1i)/RIGHT(I_) buttons to set the selected speaker as desired.

o Depending on your speaker type, you can select one of these following speaker types.

O O,

L(Large): Select this when connecting speakers that can fully reproduce sounds below crossover frequency.

S(Small) : Select this when connecting speakers that can not fully reproduce sounds below crossover frequency. When this is selected, sounds below crossover frequency are sent to the subwoofer or speakers which are set to "L

(Large)" (when not using a subwoofer)

N(None): Select this when no speakers are connected.

When this is selected, sounds are sent to the speakers which are not set to "N (None)".

Y(Yes)/N(No): Select the desired depending on whether a subwoofer is connected or not.

II Notes :

o When speakers are set to "S (Small)", you should set their crossover frequency correctly according to their frequency characteristics.

(For details, refer to "When selecting the CROSSOVER" on page 37.) o When "SUB-W" is set to "N (No)", "FRONT" is automatically set to "L (Large)".

o When the "FRONT" is set to "S (Small)", "CENTER" and "SURR" cannot be set to "L (Large)".

4, Repeat the above steps 2 and 3 until the speakers are all set to the desired mode.

_About the speaker size

o Select "L (Large)" or "S (Small)" not according to the actual size of the speaker but according to the speaker's capacity for playing low frequency (bass sound below frequency set on the "X-OVER" menu) signals.

o If you do not know, try comparing the sound at both settings (setting the volume to a level low enough so as not to damage the speakers) to determine the proper setting.

[]About the speaker distance

When enjoying multi-channel surround playback with Dolby Digital and DTS sources, etc., it is ideal that the center and surround speakers should be the same distance from the main listening position as the front speakers. By entering the distance between the listening position and each speaker, the delay times of center and surround speakers are automatically adjusted to create an

ideal listening environment virtually as if the center and surround speakers were at their ideal locations respectively.

When selecting the CROSSOVER

° When speakers are set to "S (Small)", be sure to set their crossover frequency correctly according to their frequency characteristics.

2 • Press the CURSOR LEFT( _)/RIGHT( _, ) buttons to set the crossover frequency as desired.

.

You can adjust the crossover frequency within the range of 40 ~ 200 Hz in 10 Hz intervals. mAhout the crossover frequency

. When speakers are set to "S (Small)", low frequencies in those channels that are below the crossover frequency are to output from subwoofer or front speakers which are set to "L (Large)" (when not using a subwoofer).

. Refer to the operating instructions of the speakers to be connected.

If the frequency range of your speaker is 100 Hz~20 kHz, the crossover frequency should be set to 100 Hz(or slightly higher).
