How you set up your speakers can affect the bass and the sound field.
Note the following points:
≥ Place speakers on flat secure bases.
≥ Placing speakers too close to floors, walls, and corners can result in
excessive bass. Cover walls and windows with thick curtains.
≥ For optional wall mount, refer to page 16.
Keep your speakers at least 10 mm away from the system for proper
Setup example (Recommended: 5.1ch layout)
Place the front, center, and surround speakers at approximately the same
distance from the seating position. The angles in the diagram are
§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.
§3 Place to the right or left of the TV, on the floor or a sturdy shelf so that
it will not cause vibration. Leave about 30 cm from the TV.
Depending on the room layout, you may like to use only the front
speakers and subwoofer for space saving (2.1ch layout).
Notes on speaker use

≥ 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:

from FM broadcasts, or continuous signals from an oscillator, test
disc, or electronic instrument.

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 with 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.
Turn off all equipment before connection and read the appropriate
Do not connect the AC mains lead until all other
