System Setup

Setting up the Digital
Cinema system
You must connect all the speakers and set up the system

placed at normal listening ear level or mounted on the wall
at the back of the room.
Positioning the Subwoofer

unlikely to occur. The subwoofer can be positioned
anywhere in the room because it is not possible to locate
the source of deep tones. Nevertheless, you should not
place it in the center of a room, the bass could be
extremely weakened. Do not place an object on the

do not position the front speakers too close to the TV.
