soundbar system.
Safety information
Warning
To reduce the risk of electric
shock, do not disassemble. No
user serviceable parts inside.
Refer servicing to qualified
service personnel.
To reduce the risk of fire or
electric shock, do not expose
your soundbar to rain or
moisture. Dangerous high
voltages are present inside the
enclosure.
Do not open the cabinet.
Caution
To prevent electric shock, match the wide blade on the power
cord plug to the wide slot on an electric outlet. If the plug does
not fit, consult a licensed electrician to replace the obsolete
outlet. Do not modify the power cord plug, or you will defeat this
safety feature.
When replacing the direct plug-in power supply or a separable,
cord-connected power supply, the replacement must be an exact
duplicate or one which has been recommended by the
manufacturer.
The lightning flash with arrowhead symbol within an equilateral
triangle is intended to alert you to the presence of uninsulated
dangerous voltage within your player’s enclosure that may be of
sufficient magnitude to constitute a risk of electric shock to
persons.

Muting the sound
Initial Rocketboost setup
Press the MUTE button on the remote control or on
the soundbar to mute the sound. Press the Volume
+ button or the MUTE button to restore sound.
Selecting Inputs
To choose from the available inputs of the
soundbar, press the INPUT button on the remote
control or on the top of the soundbar.
To select wireless audio sources on the Rocket
Boost network use the Wireless Next Source
button on the remote control or on the soundbar.
Remove the front speaker grill cover from the
soundbar and insert a Rocketboost Wireless Card
(RF-RBCARD, sold separately). To remove the grill
cover, grip the glossy edges of the grill cover with
each hand and pull forward evenly. The card
connector is keyed so it can only be installed one
way. When inserting the card, make sure that it is
oriented so the Rocketboost logo on the card is
facing you.
Note
Every Rocketboost network must contain a device
called a Hub, which directs network data traffic and
helps devices join the network. The network can
have only one hub, which is selected using the Hub
Status switch on the back of all Rocketboost senders.
Note
Only available when a Rocketboost card is installed.
Adjusting Audyssey Dynamic Volume
Audyssey Dynamic Volume removes volume spikes,
such as blaring commercials or movie explosions
and turns up soft dialogue so it is easier to hear.
Three levels of dynamic volume help you adjust to
different listening situations.
• Audyssey Dynamic Volume Light—This should
be used when you want to watch a movie with
the family. It will only tame the very loudest
explosions and boost only the very quietest
dialogue.
• Audyssey Dynamic Volume Medium—We
recommend this as the default choice. This level is
good for typical television viewing. The volume of
commercials and stations will sound the same.
• Audyssey Dynamic Volume Heavy—This has
the greatest impact on the volume. This is most
helpful when watching movies or television late
at night, while others are sleeping. Explosions are
dramatically reduced while the quiet moments
are increased.
Using Rocketboost
When you see the Rocketboost logo on any
product, it has been designed to work with other
Rocketboost products, no matter who
manufactures them.
How can I use Rocketboost with the
soundbar?
After you install the Rocketboost Wireless Card
(RF-RBCARD, sold separately) the soundbar can
receive any Rocketboost audio stream from your
other Rocketboost products. For example, you can
play music from audio sources that are in other
rooms.
Plus, the Rocketboost Wireless card can be used to
send audio from the soundbar. For example, you
can connect your subwoofer, by using Rocketboost
wireless instead of wires. You can learn more about
Rocketboost products at www.rocketboost.com.
If you are setting up your network for the first time
choose one of your Rocketboost senders to be your
hub by setting the Hub Status switch to Enable.
For example, if you want the soundbar to be the
hub, set the Hub Status switch on the soundbar to
Enable.
If you already have a Rocketboost network
established, set the Hub Status switch on the
soundbar to Disable.
The soundbar Power indicator lights green if the
soundbar Hub Status switch is Enabled, and lights
blue if the soundbar Hub Status switch is
Disabled.
Note
Every new Rocketboost device you add to your
Rocketboost network must be “joined” to your
Rocketboost hub device.
To establish communications with other
Rocketboost devices:
1 If possible, bring your existing Rocketboost Hub
device, or the new Rocketboost device to which
you’d like to join into the same room as the
soundbar.
2 Press the Power button on the soundbar to turn
it on.
3 Press the Power button on your other
Rocketboost device to turn it on.
4 Press and hold the Power/Join button on the
soundbar to initiate joining mode, then press
and hold the Power/Join button on your other
Rocketboost device (the devices will remain in
joining mode for 30 seconds). The power
indicator LEDs on both products will begin
blinking rapidly.
• When successfully joined, the power indicator
LEDs on both products will stop blinking and
stay on.
• If joining fails after 30 seconds, the power
indicator LED on the soundbar will begin
flashing at a slower rate. If this occurs, repeat
the above steps.
Listening to music from other Rocketboost
products
To listen to music from other Rocketboost
products:
1 Press the Power button on the soundbar to turn
it on.

NS-SBAR_11-0299_MAN_V4.book Page 8 Thursday, March 31, 2011 7:49 AM

2 Turn on your other Rocketboost sender device
(sold separately) and make sure the audio
source connected to that device is active.
3 Press the Next Source button on the remote
control to select the Rocketboost input source.
• If there are multiple Rocketboost sources, you
may need to press the Next Source button on
the soundbar to find the source you want to
listen to. Each press will cycle through the
available Rocketboost sources.
Sending audio from the soundbar to other
Rocketboost products
The selected soundbar audio signal, from either the
Television or AUX, is automatically sent on the
Rocketboost network.
The soundbar sends two separate audio signals on
the Rocketboost network:
- One of the audio signals is designed for use with a
subwoofer. This signal is low bass frequency
content only and this signal's volume level is set to
the same volume as the soundbar. That way your
soundbar and subwoofer are correctly set to the
same volume level and the subwoofer volume level
is easily controlled by the soundbar volume control.
- The second audio signal is designed for listening
to the soundbar audio in a second room or with
headphones that have their own volume control.
This signal's volume level is fixed and does not
change with the soundbar volume control. For
example, you would use this signal if you are
listening to the soundbar's audio signal in another
room, and that room's amplifier has its own volume
control.
Both audio signals are automatically sent on the
Rocketboost network. Every Rocketboost receiver
can receive both of these signals. Press the Next
Source button on your other Rocketboost product
until you hear the signal you want (for example the
low frequency signal for the subwoofer.)
To connect a subwoofer using Rocketboost:
Note
You can wirelessly connect to a Rocketboost enabled
subwoofer or to a typical wired subwoofer. The
following instructions are for connecting to a typical
wired subwoofer. If you are using a Rocketboost
enabled subwoofer, refer the to the user guide for
that product.
1 Set the Subwoofer Mode Switch on the back of
the soundbar to the EXTERNAL position.
2 Connect a Rocketboost sender/receiver
(RF-RBAUX, sold separately) to your subwoofer.
Do this by connecting the output signal of
RF-RBAUX to the input signal of the subwoofer.
Note
You will need to use the dual RCA adapter cable
supplied with the RF-RBAUX. When using this
connect either the left (white) or the right (red) audio
signal to your subwoofer.
3 Follow the steps To establish communications
with other Rocketboost devices (see above) to
connect the RF-RBAUX to your Rocketboost
network.
8
4 Turn on your soundbar and subwoofer and play
music or a movie that you can easily hear the
bass sound on.
5 Press the Next Source button on the RF-RBAUX
to select the soundbar's subwoofer audio signal.
You may have to press Next Source multiple
times until you hear the soundbar's subwoofer
audio.
6 The soundbar sends both a subwoofer signal
(volume controlled by the soundbar) and a
second room audio signal (not volume
controlled by the soundbar). To confirm you are
connected to the subwoofer signal, use the
soundbar remote control to turn the volume up
and down, and listen to make sure that the
subwoofer volume level changes. If it does not,
