Speaker placement
Before you position your speakers, take a look
around your room and figure out the best setup
(see diagram to the right). It’s easiest to place
all your speakers in the desired locations before
attaching any cables.
Satellite speakers – Place the two front
satellite speakers on either side of your
computer monitor or television, about the same
distance from each other as they are from your
listening position (e.g., the couch). Angle them
to face you. Place the two rear speakers behind
you and about the same distance apart as
the front speakers. You may want to mount
these speakers on the wall (see Wall mounting).
Subwoofer
Couch
Center satellite speaker – Place your center
satellite speaker on your desk, or in front of
your monitor or television; you may also
wall-mount it.
Subwoofer – You can place the subwoofer
anywhere in relation to the other speakers.
To get the strongest bass, place your subwoofer
near a wall or corner, or under a desk. Make sure
that nothing is closer than 16 cm to the driver
or the bass port because it will affect your
sound. It’s also important to have adequate
ventilation around the subwoofer.
Control console – Place the control console
where it’s easy to reach. And make sure the IR
window is in plain view so the remote control
can communicate with it.

Testing your system
To test whether you have correctly set up
your speakers, press and hold the INPUT button
on the remote control or control console for
5 seconds to put your system into test mode.
In test mode, the system cycles through each
speaker, playing an audible test signal. The test
signal comes from only one speaker at a time,
in 5-second intervals, in the following order:
left front, center, right front, right rear, left rear,
and subwoofer.
As a channel is tested, its corresponding LED
lights up on the front panel of the control
console. The test signal cycles through each
speaker one time and stops. To re-enter test
mode, press and hold the INPUT button on
the remote or control console for 5 seconds.
Connect the audio source cable
Turn off speakers
Connect your audio source (e.g., TV, DVD,
computer) to the appropriate input jack on
your subwoofer.
™For computer sound cards, use the 6-channel
input
(cable included).
™For stereo devices, use the Stereo RCA input
(cable not included).
™For digital devices, use the digital inputs
(cable not included).
Logitech® Surround Sound Speakers Z906
Selecting your audio input
Use the remote control or the control console to select an input source. Pressing the INPUT
button cycles through the various audio input sources, which will always cycle in the same order.
Digital input
If you’re using a digital connection, follow the instructions on your audio source to make sure you’re
getting digital audio output.
For digital content, the control console automatically detects and displays the Digital stream as long
as the device is connected to a digital input. For example, if you have selected the DTS Digital Sound
or Dolby Digital 5.1 stream for a DVD you want to watch, it will be detected automatically when you
choose the applicable input.
Using the Effect select control with stereo sources
When playing stereo audio, you can use the Effect Select control on the remote control or the
control console to choose the type of sound you want to hear.
™ Stereo 3D – Provides a 3D surround sound effect through all speakers
™ Stereo 4.1 – Plays stereo through both front and both rear satellites, plus the subwoofer
™ Stereo 2.1 – Plays stereo through both the front satellites and the subwoofer
™ No Effect – Plays audio format of your computer’s sound card without applying any effects.
Available for 6 channel input only and is represented by having no Effect LEDs illuminated
Whenever you change the input, the last effect you selected is automatically restored. For example,
if you select Stereo 3D while listening to Input 2, the next time you select Input 2, Stereo 3D is
automatically selected.
Enjoy!
After you’ve made sure that you’ve set up your system correctly—and the selected input and effect
are correctly displayed on the control console—you’re ready to go. Just press play and get immersed
in your new Z906 speaker system.

Frequently asked questions
Q: I can’t hear any sound out of my Z906 speakers, and I see flashing lights on the front of the
control console. How can I resolve this?
A: a) The Z906 uses DTS Digital Sound/Dolby Digital decoding to process data into 5.1 surround
sound. If the Z906 receives neither DTS Digital Sound nor Dolby Digital decoding data, the Z906
will not be able to decode the signal. You can resolve this issue by making sure the Z906 receives
only a DTS Digital Sound or Dolby Digital signal from the host device (for example, DVD/Blu-ray
player, game console, or home computer). Please refer to your equipment manufacturer’s support
documentation for additional details.
A: b) Most DVD and Blu-ray Disc movies have audio encoded in both DTS Digital Sound and Dolby
Digital. Check the on-disc Audio menus to make sure the movie is playing either a DTS Digital Sound
or Dolby Digital signal.
Q: Where can I learn more about my speakers?
A: Visit the Logitech web site at www.logitech.com. If none of the above answers resolve the
problem, please contact Logitech Customer Support.
Error states
• No data – If you select a digital input and no digital stream exists for that input, the Effect and
Decode indicators on the control console will not be illuminated.
• Unknown data – The Decode and Effect LEDs will cycle continuously when you select a digital
input and its data stream cannot be decoded because the digital content is neither DTS Digital
Sound nor Dolby Digital.
Wall mounting
You can mount your satellite speakers with the appropriate hardware (not included). When attaching
a satellite speaker to a wall mount, make sure not to overtighten the mounting screw. Doing so may
damage the screw threads inside the speaker’s mounting lug.
