Magnetic shielding
Speakers placed less than two feet from the TV set must be magnetically shielded in order to
prevent picture distortion. Front and center speakers provided with this unit are magnetically
shielded to protect your TV set.
Note: It is not recommended to place the rear speakers and subwoofer near the TV set.

Front speaker placement

Follow the suggestions for speaker placement below to
get the best results.
Align the center speaker evenly with (A) or slightly
behind (B) (the left and right speakers), but not ahead
of them.
Place the left and right speakers to form a 45-degree
angle with your favorite viewing position to duplicate
the soundtrack mixer's perspective.
The mid- and high-frequency drivers of the three front
speakers should be as close as possible to the same
height. This often requires placing the center speaker
directly on top (A) or beneath (B) the TV set.

Preferred surround placement

If possible, place surround speakers to either side of the
listening area, not behind it.
If space permits, install surround speakers 2-3 feet above
viewers. This helps to minimize localization effects.
Aim surround speakers straight across the room, not
down at viewers, to help create a more open, spacious
surround sound field.
Alternative Surround Placement
Rear wall
If rear wall mounting is the only choice, aim the
speakers at each other (A), towards the front (B) or
towards the sidewalls (C, D). Experiment with placement
until sounds seem to surround you, rather than come
from behind you.
