SPEAKERS TO BE USED
This unit is designed to provide the best sound-field quality with
a 5-speaker configuration, using main speakers, rear speakers
and a center speaker.
The main speakers are used for the main source sound plus
the effect sounds. They will probably be the speakers from
your present stereo system. The rear speakers are used for
the effect and surround sounds, and the center speaker is for
the center sounds (dialog, vocals, etc.). If for some reason it is
not practical to use a center speaker, you can do without it.
Best results, however, are obtained with the full system.
The main speakers should be high performance models and
have enough power handling capacity to accept the maximum
output of your audio system.
Other speakers do not have to be equal to the main speakers.
For precise sound localization, however, it is ideal to use high
performance models that can reproduce sounds in the full
range for the center speaker and the rear speakers.
This configuration is the most effective and recommended one.

Use of a subwoofer expands your sound field
It is also possible to further expand your system with the
addition of a subwoofer and amplifier. The use of a subwoofer
is effective not only for reinforcing bass frequencies from any or
all channels, but also for reproducing the LFE (low frequency
effect) sound with high fidelity when playing back a source with
the Dolby Digital decoded. You may wish to choose the
convenience of a YAMAHA Active Servo Processing Subwoofer
System, which has its own built-in power amplifier.
