PLACING THE RECEIVER

Do not place objects directly on top of the receiver as it could
prevent proper heat dispersal.
When installing in a rack or shelf, be sure to leave an adequate
amount of space above and behind the receiver for air
circulation.

PLACING THE SPEAKERS

1. Place the front left and right speakers at equal distances
from the TV.
2. Install the center speaker above or below the TV so the
center channel' s sound is localized at the TV screen.
C C C C a a a a u u u u t t t t i i i i o o o o n n n n : : : : If you choose to install the center speaker on top
of the TV, be sure to secure it to reduce the risk of damage
or injury resulting from the speaker falling from the TV in
the event of external shocks (for example, earthquakes).
3. Install the surround speakers slightly above ear level.
N N N N o o o o t t t t e e e e : : : : Try not to install the surround speakers farther away
from the listening position than the front and center
speakers. Doing so can weaken the surround effect.
4. Place the subwoofer on the floor near the TV.
C C C C a a a a u u u u t t t t i i i i o o o o n n n n : : : : Be sure all speakers are installed securely to prevent
accidents and improve sound quality.

• Use speakers with a nominal impedance of 6 Ohms or
more.
• Be careful not to bend cables over the top of the receiver. If
cables are placed on top of the receiver, the magnetic field
produced by the receiver' s transformers can cause the
speakers to produce a humming noise.

appropriate wire ends. The color of the speaker wire' s
plastic coating matches the corresponding terminal.

speaker terminal, connecting positive to positive (+ to +)
and negative to negative (– to –).
