§1 Position with at least 5 cm of space on all sides for proper ventilation.
§2 Put on a rack or shelf. Vibration caused by the speaker can disrupt
the picture if it is placed directly on the TV.

Notes on speaker use
≥Use only supplied speakers
Using other speakers can damage the unit, and sound quality will be
negatively affected.
≥ You can damage your speakers and shorten their useful life if you play
sound at high levels over extended periods.
≥ Reduce the volume in the following cases to avoid damage:
– When playing distorted sound.
– When the speakers are reverberating due to a record player, a
microphone, noise from FM broadcasts, or continuous signals from an
oscillator, test disc, or electronic instrument.
– When adjusting the sound quality.
– When turning the unit on or off.
If irregular colouring occurs on your TV
The center speaker is designed to be used close to a TV, but the picture
may be affected on some TVs and setup combinations.
If this occurs, turn the TV off for about 30 minutes.
The demagnetising function of the TV should correct the problem. If it
persists, move the speakers further away from the TV.
≥ The main unit and supplied speakers are to be used only as
indicated in this setup. Failure to do so may lead to damage to
the amplifier and/or the speakers, and may result in the risk of
fire. Consult a qualified service person if damage has occurred
or if you experience a sudden change in performance.
≥ Do not attempt to attach these speakers to walls using methods
other than those described in this manual.
