Place on a shelf or
rack.
Place the front, center, and surround speakers at approximately the same distance
from the seating position.
The angles in the diagram are approximate.
Front speakers (left, right)
Place on the left and right of the TV at seated ear height so that there is good
coherency between the picture and sound.
Center speaker
Place underneath or above the center of the TV. Aim the speaker at the seating
area.
Surround speakers (left, right)
Place on the side of or slightly behind the seating area, higher than ear level.
Subwoofer
The subwoofer can be placed in any position as long as it is at a reasonable
distance from the TV.
Note that some experimentation can yield the smoothest low frequency
performance. Placement near a corner can increase the apparent output level, but
can result in unnatural bass.
Positioning for best effect
How you set up your speakers can affect the
bass and the sound field.
Note the following points.
• Attach the included rubber pads to the base
of the center speaker (SC-HT16 and
SC-HT15: center and surround speakers).
This prevents vibration from causing the
speakers to move or fall over. Use 4 pads
per speaker.
• Place speakers on flat secure bases.
• Placing speakers too close to floors, walls,
and corners can result in excessive bass.
Cover walls and windows with a thick
curtain.

SC-HT15)

Note
Keep your speakers at least 10 mm (13/32")
away from the system for proper ventilation.
Preventing the speakers from falling over
Attach screw eyes (not included) to secure the speakers to a wall
(diagram on the right).
• Obtain the screws appropriate to the walls and pillars to which they are
going to be fastened.
• Consult 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. Improper installation may result in
damage to the wall or speakers.

If irregular coloring occurs on your television
The supplied speakers are designed to be used close to a
television, but the picture may be affected with some televisions
and setup combinations.
If this occurs, turn the television off for about 30 minutes.
The television's demagnetizing function should correct the
problem. If it persists, move the speakers further away from the
television.
Caution
• The main unit and supplied speakers are only to be
used as indicated in this manual. Failure to do so may
lead to damage to the receiver and/or the speakers,
and may result in the risk or fire. Consult a qualified
service person if damage has occurred or if you
experience a sudden change in performance.
• Do not attempt to attach these speakers to walls using
methods other than those described in this manual.

Listening caution
EST. 1924
Selecting fine audio equipment such as the unit you’ve just
purchased is only the start of your musical enjoyment. Now it’s
time to consider how you can maximize the fun and excitement
your equipment offers. This manufacturer 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
annoying blaring or distortion-and, most importantly, without
affecting your sensitive hearing.
We recommend that you avoid prolonged exposure to excessive
noise.
Sound can be deceiving. Over time your hearing “comfort level”
adapts to higher volumes of sound. So what sounds “normal”
can actually be loud and harmful to your hearing.
Guard against this by setting your equipment at a safe level
BEFORE your hearing adapts.
To establish a safe level:
• Start your volume control at a low setting.
• Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it comfortably
and clearly, and without distortion.
Once you have established a comfortable sound level:
• Set the dial and leave it there.
Taking a minute to do this now will help to prevent hearing
damage or loss in the future. After all, we want you listening for a
lifetime.
CAUTION!
DO NOT INSTALL OR PLACE THIS UNIT IN A
BOOKCASE, BUILT-IN CABINET OR IN ANOTHER
CONFINED SPACE. ENSURE THE UNIT IS WELL
VENTILATED. TO PREVENT RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK
OR FIRE HAZARD DUE TO OVERHEATING, ENSURE
THAT CURTAINS AND ANY OTHER MATERIALS DO NOT
OBSTRUCT THE VENTILATION VENTS.
CAUTION!
Do not place anything on top of this unit or block the heat
radiation vents in any way. In particular, do not place tape
decks or CD/DVD players on this unit as heat radiated from it
can damage your software.
