1.

Place the wall mount bracket on a wall surface and then secure it with two screws. If you are hanging the unit below a

TV, be sure to install the wall mount bracket so that the arrow

( ) is placed in the center of the TV. Also make sure the unit is at least two inches (5 cm) below the TV.

2.

Align the two HOLDER-SCREWs (screw holders) with the screw holes on the left and right sides of the MAIN UNIT, and then fix them to the main unit with the supplied screws.

3.

Fit the unit into the corresponding slots of the wall mount bracket. For secure installation, make sure the mounting studs slide firmly down into the bottom of the slots.

4.

The installation is complete.

2 inches (5 cm) or more

Do not hang onto the installed unit and avoid striking or dropping the unit.

Secure the unit firmly to the wall so that it does not fall off. If the unit falls off, it may cause an injury or damage the product.

When the unit is installed on a wall, please make sure that children do not pull any of the connecting cables, as it may cause it to fall.

For the optimal performance of a wall mount installation, install the speaker system at least 2 inches (5 cm) below the TV.

For your safety, if you do not mount the unit on the wall, install it on a secure, flat surface where it is unlikely to fall.

CONNECTING THE WIRELESS SUBWOOFER

The Subwoofer's linking ID is preset at the factory and the main unit and subwoofer should link (connect wirelessly) automatically when the main unit and subwoofer are turned on. If the

LINK

indicator does not light when the main unit and subwoofer are turned on, please set the ID by following the procedure below. Complete this process within

30 seconds after the Link Indicator on the subwoofer starts blinking.

1.

Plug the power cords of the main unit and subwoofer into an AC wall outlet.

2.

Confirm that the main unit is off (in STANDBY Mode).

3.

Press the

ID SET

button on the back of the subwoofer with a small, pointed object for 5 seconds.

The

LINK INDICATOR

(Blue LED) on the subwoofer blinks quickly.

4.

While the main unit is powered off (in STANDBY mode), press and hold the

( ) on the remote control for 5 seconds.

5.

message appears on the main unit’s OLED display.

TV

MUTE

6.

To finalize the link, turn the main unit’s power on while the subwoofer’s

LINK LED blinks.

The main unit and the subwoofer should now be linked (connected).

The LINK indicator (blue LED) on the subwoofer should be turned on and solid blue.

If the LINK indicator is not solid blue, the linking process has failed.

Turn off the main unit and start again from Step 2.

You can enjoy better sound from the wireless subwoofer by selecting the a sound effect. (See page 24)

Before moving or installing the product, be sure to turn off the power and disconnect the power cord.

If the main unit is powered off, the wireless subwoofer will be in the standby mode and the STANDBY

LED on the upper side will come on after the LINK indicator (Blue LED) blinks for 30 seconds.

If you use a device that uses the same frequency (2.4GHz) as the unit near the unit, interference may cause some sound interruption.

The transmission distance of the wireless signal between the main unit and subwoofer is about

33 ft., but may vary depending on your operating environment. If a steel-concrete or metallic wall is between the main unit and the wireless subwoofer, the system may not operate at all, because the wireless signal cannot penetrate metal.

If the main unit doesn't make a wireless connection, follow steps 1-5 above to retry the connection between the main unit and wireless subwoofer.

The wireless receiving antenna is built into the wireless subwoofer. Keep the unit away from water and moisture.

For optimal listening performance, make sure that the area around the wireless subwoofer location is clear of any obstructions.

ATTACHING THE TOROIDAL FERRITE CORE TO THE POWER CORD

OF THE SUBWOOFER

Attaching the Toroidal ferrite core to the power cord of the subwoofer helps prevent RF interference from radio signals.

1.

Pull the fixing tab of the Toroidal ferrite core to open it.

2.

Make two loops around the core with the power cable of the subwoofer. See the illustration below.

3.

Attach the Toroidal ferrite core to the Subwoofer power cord as shown in the illustration below, and then press it until it clicks.

LOOPING THE POWER CABLE AROUND THE TOROIDAL CORE

Lift up to release the lock and open the core.

Make two loops around the core with the power cable. (Start winding 5 to 10 cm [2 - 4 in.] away from the core).

Close the lock.

AUTO SOUND CALIBRATION (ASC)

The ASC function measures the distance between the Air Track main unit, sub woofer, and your listening position and calibrates the volume levels and frequency characteristics of the main unit and sub woofer to provide optimum sound.

- It is subject to electrical variation from obstructions caused by a wall, corner, or office partition.

- It is exposed to electrical interference from same frequency-band devices including medical equipment, microwave ovens, and wireless LANs.

If the distance exceeds the Bluetooth operational range, the connection is lost.

SOFTWARE UPGRADE

Samsung may offer upgrades for the Crystal Surround Air Track's system firmware in the future.

If an upgrade is offered, you can upgrade the firmware by connecting a USB drive with the firmware upgrade stored on it to the

USB port on your Air Track.

Note that if there are multiple upgrade files, you must load them onto the USB drive singly and use them to upgrade the firmware one at a time.

Please visit Samsung.com or contact the Samsung call center to receive more information about downloading upgrades files.

Insert a USB drive containing the firmware upgrade into the USB port on the main unit.

Do not disconnect the power or remove the USB drive while upgrades are being applied. The main unit will turn off automatically after completing the firmware upgrade.

When software is upgraded, settings you have made will return to their default (factory) settings.

We recommend you write down your settings so that you can easily reset them after the upgrade.

Once the software upgrade is completed, turn off the product and then press and hold the (

) button for a while to reset the product.

If the firmware fails to upgrade, we recommend formatting the USB device in FAT16 and trying again.

For upgrading purposes, do not format the USB drive in NTFS format because it is not a supported file system.

Depending on the manufacturer, some USB devices may not be supported.
