Connecting the terminals
Speaker impedance
After confirming the speaker impedance indications printed on the
rear panel of this model, connect speakers with matching impedance
ratings. Using speakers with a rated impedance other than that
indicated on the rear panel of this model could result in malfunctions
or damage to the speakers or this model.
Never short circuit the + and – speaker cords.
If the left and right speakers are connected inversely or the speaker
cords are connected with reversed polarity, the sound will be
unnatural with ambiguous acoustic imaging. Be sure to connect the
speakers correctly.
Speaker placement
*For Surround Back speaker, you may place either two Surround
Back speakers (Surround Back Left speaker and Surround Back
Right speaker) for 7.1 channel surround sound system or one
Surround Back speaker for 6.1 channel surround sound system.
Front speakers : Place to the front left and right of the listening
position. Front speakers are required for all surround modes.
Center speaker : Place front and center. This speaker stabilizes the
sound image and helps recreate sound motion. Required for surround
Surround speakers : Place to the direct left and right, or slightly
behind the listening position at even heights, approximately 1 meter
above the ears of the listeners. These speakers recreate sound
motion and atmosphere. Required for surround playback.
Subwoofer : Reproduces powerful deep bass sounds.
Surround Back speaker/s : Place the speaker/s directly at the rear
of the listening position. The optimum position depends mainly on the
room condition.
Although the ideal surround system consists of all the speakers
listed above, if you don't have a center speaker or a subwoofer, you
can divide those signals between the available speakers in the
speaker settings steps to obtain the best possible surround
reproduction from the speakers you have available. ^
