Connecting the subwoofer
You can enhance the bass by connecting a subwoofer. Connect the input jack of a powered subwoofer to the rear panel, using a cable with RCA pin plugs (not supplied).
Placing speakers Front speakers (L/R) and center speaker (C)
Place these speakers at the same height from the floor, at or near
Array across the front of the viewing area.
Surround speakers (LS/RS)
Place these speakers alongside and slightly to the rear of (but not behind) the listening position; well above ear level (60 cm (2 ft) to 90 cm (3 ft) higher).
Point these speakers directly across the listening area, but not at the listener’s ears.
You can place it wherever you like since bass sound is non-
directional. Normally place it in front of you.

Do not connect the AC power cord until all other connections have been made.
