We Want You Listening For A Lifetime
Yamaha and the Electronic Industries
Association’s Consumer Electronics
Group want you to get the most out of
your equipment by playing it at a safe
level. One that lets the sound come
through loud and clear without

most importantly, without affecting
your sensitive hearing. Since hearing damage from loud
sounds is often undetectable until it is too late, Yamaha
and the Electronic Industries Association’s Consumer
Electronics Group recommend you to avoid prolonged
exposure from excessive volume levels.

Cautions
• Do not place the sound bar on/under any other devices such as
BD player in a pile. Doing so may cause a malfunction due to
vibrations.
• Do not touch the grille on the front and bottom of the sound bar.
• The sound bar contains acoustic suspension speakers. Do not
place magnetically sensitive items (hard disk drive, etc.) near the
sound bar.
• Depending on your installation environment, it may be better to
connect the sound bar and external devices (such as a TV)
before installing the sound bar.
• Do not place the sound bar within 50 mm (2") of the TV. The wall
mount brackets on the rear panel can be removed as necessary.

Cautions
• When installing the sound bar on a wall, all installation work must be
performed by a qualified contractor or dealer. The customer must never
attempt to perform this installation work. Improper or inadequate
installation could cause the sound bar to fall, resulting in personal injury.
• Do not attach the sound bar to a wall that is made of weak
materials such as plaster or veneered woods. Doing so may
cause the sound bar to fall.
• Make sure you use commercially available screws that can
support the weight of the installation (specified in Step 2 on the
right). Using clamps other than specified screws, such as short
screws, nails, and two-sided tape, may cause the sound bar to fall.
Cautions
• Fix the cables in place where they will not become loose. If your
foot or hand accidentally gets caught on a loose cable, the sound
bar may fall.
• Check that the sound bar is fixed securely after the installation.
Yamaha will bear no responsibility for any accidents caused by
improper installations.
Connections

Controlling the TV via the sound bar (when the TV’s
remote control sensor is blocked)
When the TV Remote Repeater function is enabled, the sound bar receives TV remote
control signals at the TV remote control sensor (on front) and transmits the signals from
the TV Remote Repeater (on rear). This function is useful when you cannot operate your
TV from the remote control because the remote control sensor of the TV is blocked by
the sound bar.
Using an external subwoofer
The sound bar has dual built-in subwoofers; however, you can connect an external
subwoofer. Perform the following steps to change the setting when using an external
subwoofer.

Bluetooth
• Bluetooth is a technology for wireless communication between devices within an area
of about 10 meters (33 ft) employing the 2.4 GHz frequency band, a band which can
be used without a license.
Handling Bluetooth communications
• The 2.4 GHz band used by Bluetooth compatible devices is a radio band shared by
many types of equipment. While Bluetooth compatible devices use a technology
minimizing the influence of other components using the same radio band, such
influence may reduce the speed or distance of communications and in some cases
interrupt communications.
• The speed of signal transfer and the distance at which communications is possible
differs according to the distance between the communicating devices, the presence of
obstacles, radio wave conditions and type of equipment.
• Yamaha does not guarantee all wireless connections between this unit and devices
compatible with Bluetooth function.
