Adjusting speaker output level
Adjust the level of the other speakers based on the output of the
front speakers. (Speakers set as “NONE” or “NO” are skipped.
Adjust the volume of the front speakers with [VOLUME].)
If you set the front speakers to
“SMALL”, the filter is set to 100 Hz.
Raise the cut-off if the bass from the
front speakers is unsatisfactory so
that this bass is output through the
subwoofer.
You can raise the cut-off from 100 Hz
to either 150 Hz or 200 Hz.
Change the settings based on the
table you completed on page 4 so that
the correct source is selected when
you turn [INPUT SELECTOR].
The factory settings are:
TV: OPT 1
DVD: OPT 2
DVR: OPT 3
MD/CD-R: OPT 4
CD: COAX
C (center), SR (surround right), SB (surround back)(SBR–
surround back right– and SBL–surround back left– when DUAL
selected), and SL (surround left) can be adjusted between –10 dB
and +10 dB, with 0 being the level of the front speakers.
Adjust center, surround and surround back output to the same
apparent level of the front speakers.
For SW (subwoofer), you can select “---” so there is no output,
“MIN” for minimum output, a level between 1 and 19, or “MAX” for
maximum output.
Adjust subwoofer output so it is balanced with the front speakers.
Subwoofer output is easily influenced by the source. You can also
change its level while playing something for better effect
(\ page 15).
