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 housing contractor concerning the appropriate procedure when attaching to a concrete wall or a
surface that may not have strong enough support is recommended (> 11, 13). Improper attachment may result in damage to
the wall and speakers, and personal injury.
≥ Use a cord of less than ‰2.0 mm (5/64q), which is capable of supporting over 10 kg (22.05 lbs).
≥ Keep the screws out of reach of children to prevent swallowing.
≥ Make sure that the slack of the cord is minimal.

As a factory preset, Dolby Virtual Speaker and the 3D
surround effects will be applied to Multi-channel audio
sources, such as those from a Blu-ray Disc playerTM or
DVD player, etc.
By changing the audio output setting, it is possible to
apply the Dolby Virtual Speaker and 3D surround effects
to 2ch audio sources, such as the audio from the TV.
To change the audio output
mode
Press and hold [MUTE] for more than

with depth and force that better
matches 3D images.
Sports commentary and dialogs
from TV dramas are heard as if the

giving the feeling that the sound
and the image are one.
Also, the dialog will stand out from
the other sounds during normal
