A 5-ampere fuse is fitted in this plug.
Should the fuse need to be replaced please
ensure that the replacement fuse has a rating of
5-ampere and that it is approved by ASTA or BSI
to BS1362.
Check for the ASTA mark Ï or the BSI mark Ì
on the body of the fuse.
If the plug contains a removable fuse cover you
must ensure that it is refitted when the fuse is
replaced.
If you lose the fuse cover the plug must not be
used until a replacement cover is obtained.
A replacement fuse cover can be purchased from
your local dealer.
CAUTION!
IF THE FITTED MOULDED PLUG IS
UNSUITABLE FOR THE SOCKET OUTLET IN
YOUR HOME THEN THE FUSE SHOULD BE
REMOVED AND THE PLUG CUT OFF AND
DISPOSED OF SAFELY.
THERE IS A DANGER OF SEVERE

Information for your safety
Getting started
Caution
≥ The active subwoofer and supplied speakers are to be used only as indicated in these instructions. Failure to do so may
lead to damage to the amplifier and/or the speakers, and may result in the risk of 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 a wall using methods other than those described in this manual.
Speaker system
≥ Do not hold the speakers in one hand to avoid injury by dropping the speakers when carrying.
∫ When attaching the speakers to a wall (> 12)
The wall or pillar on which the speakers are to be attached should be capable of supporting 10 kg per screw. Consultation with
a qualified building contractor is recommended when attaching the speakers to a wall. Improper attachment may result in
damage to the wall and speakers, and personal injury.
Active subwoofer
The remote control signal sensor is located on the active subwoofer.
≥ Use the remote control within the correct operation range.

≥ Place the active subwoofer in a horizontal position with the top panel faced upward.
≥ Placing the active subwoofer and the speakers too close to the walls, and corners can result in excessive bass. Cover walls
and windows with thick curtains.
≥ If irregular colouring occurs on your TV, turn the TV off for about 30 minutes. If it persists, move the speakers further away
from the TV.
≥ Keep magnetised items away. Magnetised cards, watches etc., can be damaged if placed too close to the system.

Connections
≥ Turn off all equipment before connection and read the appropriate operating instructions.
Do not connect the AC mains lead until all other connections are complete.
∫ HDMI
The HDMI connection supports VIERA Link “HDAVI Control” (> 17) when used with a compatible Panasonic TV.
≥ Use the High Speed HDMI cables. Non-HDMI-compliant cables cannot be utilised. It is recommended that you use
Panasonic’s HDMI cable.
Recommended part number (High Speed HDMI cable):
RP-CDHS15 (1.5 m), RP-CDHS30 (3.0 m), RP-CDHS50 (5.0 m), etc.
∫ 3D compatibility
Compatible with FULL HD 3D TV and Blu-ray Disc Player
≥ This system can pass through the 3D video signal from a 3D compatible Blu-ray Disc Player to a FULL HD 3D TV.
Basic connection
Verify if the TV’s HDMI terminal is labelled “HDMI (ARC)”.
The connection will differ when the TV’s HDMI terminal is labelled “HDMI (ARC)” and when it is not.
Labelled “HDMI (ARC)”: Connection ]A[
Not labelled “HDMI (ARC)”: Connection ]B[ (> 10)
∫ What is ARC?
Getting started
ARC is an abbreviation of Audio Return Channel, also known as HDMI ARC. It refers to one of the HDMI functions. When you
connect the active subwoofer to the terminal labelled “HDMI (ARC)”, the optical digital audio cable that is usually required in
order to listen to sound from a TV is no longer required, and TV pictures and sound can be enjoyed with a single HDMI cable.
Make the connection.

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 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 (> 12). Improper attachment may result in damage to the
wall and speakers, and personal injury.
≥ Use a cord of less then ‰1.5 mm, which is capable of supporting over 10 kg.

Linked operations with the TV
(VIERA Link “HDAVI ControlTM”)
What is VIERA Link “HDAVI
Control”?
Preparation
1 Confirm that the HDMI connection has been
made. (> 9, 10)
2 Set the “HDAVI Control” operations on the
connected equipment (e.g., TV).
3 For the optimal “HDAVI Control” operations
change the following settings on the
connected TV§1.
≥ Set the default speaker settings to this
system.§2
≥ Set the speaker selection settings to this
system.
4 Turn on all “HDAVI Control” compatible
equipment and select the TV’s input for this
system so that the “HDAVI Control” function
works properly.
5 If a device is connected to the HDMI IN
terminal, start play to check that the picture is
displayed on the TV correctly.
When the connection or settings are changed,
repeat this procedure.
§1 The availability and function of the settings may vary
depending on the TV. Refer to the operating instructions
for the TV for details.
§2 If the TV has a default speaker setting within the VIERA
Link setting items, choosing this system as the default
speaker will automatically change the speaker selection
to this system.
≥ VIERA Link “HDAVI Control”, based on the control
functions provided by HDMI which is an industry standard
known as HDMI CEC (Consumer Electronics Control), is a
unique function that we have developed and added. As
such, its operation with other manufacturers’ equipment
that supports HDMI CEC cannot be guaranteed.
≥ This unit supports “HDAVI Control 5” function.
“HDAVI Control 5” is the newest standard (current as of
November, 2011) for Panasonic’s HDAVI Control
compatible equipment. This standard is compatible with
Panasonic’s conventional HDAVI equipment.
≥ Please refer to individual manuals for other manufacturers’
equipment supporting VIERA Link function.
To make sure that the audio is output from this
system, select home cinema speaker from the
speaker menu of VIERA Link menu using the
TV’s remote control to turn this system on. The
availability and function of the settings may vary
depending on the TV. Refer to the operating
instructions for the TV for details.
