Placing the speakers

By connecting the left and right front speakers
(L/R), the center speaker (C), the left and right
surround speakers (SL/SR), and the subwoofer
(SW), a 5.1 ch surround system can be
To achieve the best possible surround sound,
install your speakers as shown below.

Hints on the speaker placement

Where you put your speakers in the room has a
big effect on the quality of the sound. The
following guidelines should help you to get the
best sound from your system.
• The subwoofer can be placed on the floor.
Ideally, the other speakers should be at
about ear-level when you're listening to
them. Putting the speakers on the floor
(except the subwoofer), or mounting them
very high on a wall is not recommended.
• For the best stereo effect, place the front
speakers 2 m to 3 m apart, at equal
distance from the TV.
• If you're going to place speakers around
your CRT TV, use shielded speakers or
place the speakers at a sufficient distance
from your CRT TV.
• If you're using a center speaker, place the
front speakers at a wider angle. If not, place
them at a narrower angle.
• Place the center speaker above or below
the TV so that the sound of the center
channel is localized at the TV screen. Also,
make sure the center speaker does not
cross the line formed by the leading edge
of the front left and right speakers.
• It is best to angle the speakers towards the
listening position. The angle depends on
the size of the room. Use less of an angle
for bigger rooms.
• Surround speakers should be positioned 60
cm to 90 cm higher than your ears and
titled slight downward. Make sure the
speakers don't face each other. For DVD-
Audio, the speakers should be more
directly behind the listener than for home
theater playback.
• Try not to place the surround speakers
farther away from the listening position
than the front and center speakers. Doing
so can weaken the surround sound effect.
• Make sure that all speakers are securely
installed. This not only improves sound
quality, but also reduces the risk of
damage or injury resulting from speakers
being knocked over or falling in the event of
external shocks such as earthquakes.
