Positioning speakers / Connecting speakers Two speaker systems ( FRONT SPEAKERS A and FRONT SPEAKERS B ) can be connected to the Receiver . The FRONT SPEAKERS A system is to be placed in the main room , and the FRONT SPEAKERS B system is to be placed in a second room . The configuration of the FRONT SPEAKERS A system The FRONT SPEAKERS A system consists of the front [ efi , center , and right speakers , surround left and right speakers , and subwoofer . You can reproduce the sounds such as Dolhy surround and DTS surround . The configuration of the FRONT SPEAKERS B system The FRONT SPEAKERS B system consists of the front [ efi and right speakers . You can reproduce only monaural and stereo sounds . I Standard speaker placement of the SPEAKERS A system Speaker placement plays an important role in the reproduction of Surround sound . The placement of the speaker , s varies depending on the size of the room and the wall coverings used in the room . The illustration below shows an example of a layout for standard speaker placement . Refer Io this example when you position the speakens in order to experience the best of Surround sound . For ideal Surround effects , all speakers should be installed . If a center speaker or subwoofer is not connected , the sound from the unused channel is properly distributed to the connected speakers in order to reproduce the best Surround sound possible . Front The center speaker reproduces a richer sound image by enhancing the perception of the sound's source and movement . I TV / Screen I The lefi , right , and center speakens should face the sealed listener and be placed at ear level . Surround The surround speakers reproduce the feel of a moving sound while creating the sensation of being in the middle of the action . Place the left and right surround speakers 3 feet ( 1 meter ) above the listener's ear level and facing toward the sides of the room , making sure that the listener is Surround Surround within the speakers ' dispersion angle . Subwoofer left _ right Install a subwoofer with a built - in power amplifier for powerful bass sounds . The placement of the subwoofer does not affect the final quality of the sound image much , therefore , you can install it wherever it is convenient . Refer to the speakers instruction nanuals for details . I Using the provided speaker labels The speaker lerminals ( + ) of this unit are given different colors for ease of identificalion . By attaching the provided speaker labels to the speaker cables , the cables to be connected to the terminals can be identified easily . Attach the speaker label of each color to the speaker cable for the corresponding terminal and connect the speaker cable to the terminal having the same color as the label altachod to the cable . The speaker terminals are colored as follows . Front left speaker ( + ) : whtie Front Right speaker ( + ) : red Cenler speaker ( + ) : green Speaker Surround lefi speaker ( + ) : blue Surround right speaker ( + ) : gray 12
