Hints on speaker placement
The following guidelines will help you to get the
best performance from your speaker system.
See Home theater sound setup on page 24 for
surround placement options with this system.
• Place the front left and right speakers at
equal distances from the TV.
• Place the center speaker above or below
the TV so that the sound of the center
channel is localized at the TV screen.
• If possible, place the surround speakers
slightly above ear level.
• These speaker terminals carry
HAZARDOUS LIVE VOLTAGE. To prevent
the risk of electric shock when connecting
or disconnecting the speaker cables,
disconnect the power cord before touching
any uninsulated parts.
• If you choose to install the center speaker
on top of the TV, be sure to secure it with
putty, or by other suitable means, to reduce
the risk of damage or injury resulting from
the speaker falling from the TV in the event
of external shocks such as earthquakes.
