Caution
≥ This system is to be used only as indicated in these instructions. Failure to do so may lead to damage to the
amplifier and/or the speakers, and may result in the risk of fire. Consult a qualified service person if damage
has occurred or if you experience a sudden change in performance.
≥ Do not attempt to attach the speakers to a wall using methods other than those described in this manual.
The speaker system
≥Use a screwdriver (i) for assembling the speakers.
≥Do not hold the speakers in one hand to avoid injury, you may drop the speakers when carrying them.
∫ When attaching the speakers to a wall
The wall or pillar on which the speakers are to be attached should be capable of supporting 33 kg (72.8 lbs) per screw.
Consultation with a qualified installation specialist is recommended when attaching the speakers to a wall. Improper attachment
may result in damage to the wall and speakers, and personal injury.
∫ When placing the speakers in front of the TV
The speakers may block or interfere with the TV’s various sensors (C.A.T.S. (Contrast Automatic Tracking System) sensor,
remote control sensor, etc.) and the 3D Eyewear transmitters on a 3D compatible TV.
≥ If the leg stands are being used
Change the height of the leg stands and/or move the speakers further away from the TV. If the TV still does not function
correctly, try removing the leg stands.
≥ If the leg stands are not used
Move the speakers further away from the TV. If the TV still does not function properly, try placing them beside the TV (> 10).
The active subwoofer
A Do not hold the active subwoofer from this
opening.
The parts inside may get damaged.
B Always hold the bottom of the active subwoofer when
moving it.

Wireless interference
To avoid interference, maintain the following distances between the main unit/active subwoofer
and other electronic devices that use the same radio frequency (2.4 GHz band).
C
D
C Main unit/active subwoofer
D Wireless router, cordless phone and other
electronic devices:
approx. 2 m (6 1/2 ft)
≥ Place the active subwoofer within a few meters of the main unit and in a horizontal position with the top panel facing upward.
≥ Do not use the main unit or the active subwoofer in a metal cabinet.
≥ Placing the active subwoofer too close to the walls and corners can result in excessive bass. Cover walls and windows with
thick curtains.
≥ If irregular coloring occurs on your TV, turn the TV off for about 30 minutes. If it persists, move the speakers further away from
the TV.
≥ Keep magnetized items away. Magnetized cards, watches, etc., can be damaged if placed too close to the active subwoofer
and the speakers.

Step 2 Assembling the speakers
When attaching the speakers to a wall
Place the speakers horizontally
The speakers can be wall mounted by drilling screws into the wall, etc.
Make sure that the screw used and the wall are strong enough to support the weight of at least 33 kg (72.8 lbs).
The screws and other items are not supplied as the type and size will vary with each installation.
≥For details about the required screws, refer to the diagram below the step “Drive a screw into the wall.”

Additional speaker fall prevention measures
To prevent the speakers from falling, it is recommended, as an additional
protection measure, to attach the speakers to the wall or table with a fall
prevention cord (hereafter “cord”).
≥ Consultation with a qualified installation specialist concerning the appropriate procedure when attaching to a concrete wall or a
surface that may not have strong enough support is recommended (> 13, 17). Improper attachment may result in damage to
the wall and speakers, and personal injury.
≥ Use a cord that is capable of supporting over 10 kg (22.05 lbs) (with a diameter of about 1.5 mm (1/16q)).
≥ The speaker fall prevention measure is to minimize the possibility of damage and harm, but it does not completely guarantee
this effect.
≥ Keep the screws out of reach of children to prevent swallowing.
≥ Make sure that the slack of the cord is minimal.
≥ Depending on the placement of the speakers, the screwing position of the screw eye may differ.

Step 3 Connections
≥Turn off all equipment before connection and read the appropriate operating instructions.
Do not connect the AC power supply cord until all other connections are completed.
∫ HDMI
≥ The HDMI connection supports VIERA Link “HDAVI Control” (> 32) when used with a compatible Panasonic TV.
≥ Use the ARC compatible High Speed HDMI cables. Non-HDMI-compliant cables cannot be utilized.
≥ It is recommended that you use Panasonic’s HDMI cable.
Connection with the TV
Verify if the TV’s HDMI terminal is labeled “HDMI (ARC)”.
Connection differs depending on the label printed next to the HDMI terminal.
Labeled “HDMI (ARC)”: Connection [A]
Not Labeled “HDMI (ARC)”: Connection [B]
∫ What is ARC?
ARC is an abbreviation of Audio Return Channel, also known as HDMI ARC. It refers to one of the HDMI functions. When you
connect the main unit to the terminal labeled “HDMI (ARC)” on the TV, the optical digital audio cable that is usually required in
order to listen to sound from a TV is no longer required, and TV pictures and sound can be enjoyed with a single HDMI cable.
Make the connection.

equipment (e.g., TV).
For the optimal “HDAVI Control” operations change
the following settings on the connected TV§1.
≥ Set the default speaker settings to this system.§2
≥ Set the speaker selection settings to this system.
Turn on all “HDAVI Control” compatible equipment
and select the TV’s input for this system so that the
“HDAVI Control” function works properly.
If a device is connected to the HDMI IN terminal, start
play to check that the picture is displayed on the TV
correctly.
When the connection or settings are changed,
repeat this procedure.
§1 The availability and function of the settings may vary
depending on the TV. Refer to the operating instructions
for the TV for details.
§2 If the TV has a default speaker setting within the VIERA
Link setting items, choosing this system as the default
speaker will automatically change the speaker selection to
this system.
What you can do with
VIERA Link “HDAVI
Control”
To make sure that the audio is output from this system,
turn the main unit on by using the TV’s remote control and
selecting home theater from the speaker menu of VIERA
Link menu. The availability and function of the settings
may vary depending on the TV. Refer to the operating
instructions for the TV for details.
∫ Speaker control
You can select whether audio output is from this system or
the TV speakers by using the TV menu settings.
Home theater
This system is active.
≥ When the main unit is in standby mode, changing the TV
speakers to this system in the VIERA Link menu will
automatically turn the main unit on.
≥ You can control the volume setting of this system using the
volume or mute button on the TV remote control.
≥ If you turn off the main unit, the TV speakers will be
automatically activated.

∫ Automatic input switching
When the following operations are performed, the main
unit will automatically change the input to the
corresponding source.
jWhen play starts on an HDMI connected device.§3
jWhen the TV input or the TV channel is changed.
§3 If the speaker output setting on the TV is set to this
system, the TV and the main unit turn on automatically
(Power on link).
∫ Power off link
≥ VIERA Link “HDAVI Control”, based on the control functions
provided by HDMI which is an industry standard known as
HDMI CEC (Consumer Electronics Control), is a unique
function that we have developed and added. As such, its
operation with other manufacturers’ equipment that
supports HDMI CEC cannot be guaranteed.
≥ This unit supports “HDAVI Control 5” function.
“HDAVI Control 5” is the standard for Panasonic’s HDAVI
Control compatible equipment. This standard is compatible
with Panasonic’s conventional HDAVI equipment.
≥ Please refer to individual manuals for other manufacturers’
equipment supporting VIERA Link function.
When the TV is turned off, the main unit also turns off
automatically. (This function does not work when
Bluetooth® is the source.)
∫ Automatic lip-sync function
(for HDAVI Control 3 or later)
Delay between audio and video is automatically adjusted
by adding time-lag to the audio output, enabling you to
enjoy smooth audio for the picture.
The delay information is automatically set if the TV is
compatible to VIERA Link “HDAVI Control 3” or later and the
VIERA Link is set to on.
