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.
• Insert so the poles (+ and -) match those in the remote
control.
• Do not use rechargeable type batteries.
Use
Aim at the sensor, avoiding obstacles, at a maximum range of
7 m (23 feet) directly in front of the unit.

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.
7 meters (23 feet)
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.

Positioning for best effect
How you set up your speakers can affect the bass and the
sound field.
Note the following points.
• Place speakers on flat secure bases.
• Placing speakers too close to floors, walls, and corners can
4 Surround
result in excessive bass. Cover walls and windows with a
speaker (R)
thick curtain.
2 Front speaker (R)
6 Subwoofer
Note
Keep your speakers at least 10 mm (13/32") away from the
system for proper ventilation.
3 Surround
speaker (L)
Place the front, center, and surround speakers at approximately the same distance from the seating position.
The angles in the diagram are approximate.
RQTV0105
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.
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.

sudden change in performance.
• Do not attempt to attach these speakers to walls using
methods other than those described in this manual.
