Positioning
step 2
How you set up your speakers can affect the bass and the sound field.
Note the following points:
≥ Place speakers on flat secure bases.
≥ Keep your speakers at least 10 mm (13/32q) away from the system for
proper ventilation.
≥ Placing speakers too close to floors, walls, and corners can result in
excessive bass. Cover walls and windows with thick curtains.
≥ For optional wall mount, refer to page 19.
Setup example (“Surround layout (Recommended)”: Standard
surround placement)
Place the front, center, and surround speakers at approximately the same
distance from the seating position. The angles in the diagram are
approximate.

§1 Position with at least 5 cm (2q) of space on all sides for proper
ventilation.
§2 Put on a rack or shelf. Vibration caused by the speaker can disrupt
the picture if it is placed directly on the TV.
§3 Place to the right or left of the TV, on the floor or a sturdy shelf so that
it will not cause vibration. Leave about 30 cm (1113/16q) from the TV.
Depending on the room layout, you may like to use all the speakers at the
front (“Front layout (Alternative)”) (B 8, Easy setup).
Notes on speaker use
≥Use only supplied speakers
Using other speakers can damage the unit, and sound quality will be
negatively affected.
≥ You can damage your speakers and shorten their useful life if you play
sound at high levels over extended periods.
≥ Reduce the volume in the following cases to avoid damage:
– When playing distorted sound.
– When the speakers are reverberating due to a record player, noise
from FM broadcasts, or continuous signals from an oscillator, test
disc, or electronic instrument.
– When adjusting the sound quality.
– When turning the unit on or off.
If irregular coloring occurs on your TV
The center speaker is designed to be used close to a TV, but the picture
may be affected on some TVs and setup combinations.
If this occurs, turn the TV off for about 30 minutes.
The demagnetizing function of the TV should correct the problem. If it
persists, move the speakers further away from the TV.
Caution
RQTX1230
≥ The main unit and supplied speakers are to be
used only as indicated in this setup. 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 walls
using methods other than those described in this
manual.

Turn off all equipment before connection and read the appropriate
operating instructions.
Do not connect the AC power supply cord until all other
connections are completed.

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 December, 2010) for
Panasonic’s HDAVI Control compatible equipment. This standard is

Disc handling precautions
≥ Do not attach labels or stickers to discs. This may cause disc warping,
rendering it unusable.
≥ Do not write on the label side with a ball-point pen or other writing
instrument.
≥ Do not use record cleaning sprays, benzine, thinner, liquids which
prevent static electricity, or any other solvent.
≥ Do not use scratch-proof protectors or covers.
≥ Do not use the following discs:
– Discs with exposed adhesive from removed stickers or labels (rented
discs, etc.).
– Discs that are badly warped or cracked.
– Irregularly shaped discs, such as heart shapes.
≥ The wall or pillar on which the speakers are to be attached should be
capable of supporting 10 kg (22 Ibs) per screw. Consult a qualified
building contractor when attaching the speakers to a wall. Improper
attachment may result in damage to the wall and speakers.
