Surround Back
Left Speaker
*For Surround Back speaker, you may place either two Surround Back
speakers (Surround Back Left Speaker and Surround Back Right
Speaker) for 7.1 channel surround sound system or one Surround
Back Speaker for 6.1 channel surround sound system.
Front (Left and Right) Speakers
Place at the front left and right of the listening position. Front
Speakers are required for all surround modes.
Center Speaker
Place front and center. This speaker stabilizes the sound image and
helps recreate sound motion. Required for surround playback.
Surround (Left and Right) Speakers
Place at the direct left and right, or slightly behind, the listening
position at even heights, approximately 1 meter above the ears of the
listeners. These speakers recreate sound motion and atmosphere.
Usually, place the subwoofer in the front center position in the
listening room, near one of the front speakers near the center
speaker. (Since the subwoofer has less directivity than other speak-
ers, it can be placed almost in any position that can offer the best low
frequency reproduction according to the room layout.)
Surround Back Speaker/s
Place the surround back speaker behind the listening position, at the
same height as the left and right surround speakers.
• Although the ideal surround system consists of all the speakers
listed above, if you don't have a Center speaker or a Subwoofer, you
can divide those signals between the available speakers in the
speaker settings steps to obtain the best possible surround
reproduction from the speakers you have available.
