FCC Statement

This product has been tested and complies with the specifications for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used according to the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which is found by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:

Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna

Increase the separation between the equipment or devices

Connect the equipment to an outlet other than the receiver's

PT8051 Surround Sound System

Thank you for purchasing the Altec Lansing PT8051 Wireless Surround Sound System.

The PT8051 is designed to replace the traditional A/V receiver and separate speakers and provide a complete, multi-channelsurround system sound from just two components using DTS and Dolby Digital decoding to faithfully reproduce your favorite music and movie soundtracks. The PT8051 system’s NXT Digitalflat-paneldriver technology accurately reproduces the full frequency range and delivers all the subtleties and spatial depth that today’s digital formats are capable of. In addition, the PT8051’s advanced wireless transmission means it’s easy to experience theater quality surround effects without the need to run wires to the rear speakers.

The PT8051’s design is well suited for use with today’s large format LCD and plasma flat panel displays and both components can be wall mounted with them using the supplied brackets. A universal remote control is included that allows you to consolidate remote controls from various devices such as your TV, DVD player and VCR.

Installing the PT8051

This section provides guidelines for locating and installing your new PT8051.

The PT8051 creates a realistic surround sound experience from just two units. Usability is further enhanced by utilizing an advanced 2.4 GHz wireless transmission system that eliminates the need to run wires to the rear surround speakers. While placement is less critical than similar systems, the following general guidelines should be followed where possible to ensure best sound quality:

Avoid placement where furniture or other items would obstruct the grill area.

Center the PT8051 below the TV so that dialogue appears to be coming from it.

The maximum allowable distance between the main and rear surround units is approximately 40 feet (12.2 meters).

The rear surround unit should be placed behind the primary listening position to maximize the surround sound effects from the system. For maximum sound quality it should be placed at or near ear level when they are seated in the listening position.

Avoid placing the PT8051 on or near surfaces that may vibrate.

< 40 f et (12.2 meters)

Locating the PT8051

The PT8051’s front and rear units can be placed on suitable level surfaces or mounted on the wall using the supplied wall mounting brackets.

Safety Notes:

2 inches

(mm)

PT8051

Be sure to leave adequate ventilation space – at least 2 inches (50mm) above both the main and rear surround units.

We do not recommend installing this unit so that it is directly on the floor.

The main unit of the PT8051 weighs approximately 18.1 lbs. (8.2 kg) and the rear surround unit weighs approximately 9.8 lbs. (4.4 kg.). Be sure to secure it where it will not fall and where it is out of the reach of children.

Do not install the main or rear surround units directly above a cathode-raytube (CRT) TV as stray magnetic fields may distort the TV.

Wall Mounting

If you are mounting the PT8051 on the wall please follow these steps:

1.Determine a suitable wall location for mounting each speaker unit within reach of its AC cord.

2.Position and level the supplied metal mounting bracket in the desired location on the wall.

3.Being careful to avoid any items (wires, pipes, etc.) hidden inside the wall secure the metal mounting bracket using appropriate fasteners for the application. If you are unsure which type of fasteners to use or are unable to determine if there are items within the wall that could be damaged please consult a licensed contractor.

4.Place the speaker on the mounting bracket by aligning the two buttonholes on the rear of the speaker with the posts on the mounting bracket. Check to make sure the wall mount bracket and speaker are securely fixed in place.

Caution: The wall-mountingbracket should be installed only by qualified personnel. The mounting bracket can be installed on many different types of walls. When installed, the mounting bracket must support at least 100 lbs. (45 kg.). The installer must be sure that the installing surface can support the 100 lb. (45 kg.) weight requirement. The qualified installer must also determine and use the proper hardware to obtain the weight requirements for the wall.

Placing the PT8051 on a Stand

You can mount your TV on a commercially-availablestand and place the main unit of the PT8051 under your TV. Ensure that the stand being used can support the weight of the TV, the PT8051 and any other items it will be required to support.

Note: Consult the instructions supplied with the stand for details on how to install the stand and how to mount the PT8051 and the TV on the stand.

NOTE: Placement of this product on wood surfaces with certain types of finishes, such as clear varnish, may result in damage to the finish. Consult the furniture manufacturer’s care instructions for direction as to the types of objects that may safely be placed on the wood surface. Altec Lansing shall not be responsible for any damage to wood surfaces from contact with this product.

Setting Up the PT8051

Warning: Do not insert the PT8051’s power plug into a wall outlet until you connect other sources such as your TV, DVD player, satellite tuner or alternate audio source. Also, turn off audio sources before connecting them to the PT8051.

The PT8051 is designed to connect external components such as your DVD player, satellite TV tuner, cable TV tuner, VCR, game console and TV. The PT 7031 can be connected to the source equipment (DVD, VCR, etc.) using either a digital (coaxial or optical) or analog connection. In cases where there are both digital and analog outputs such as a DVD player we recommend using the digital output to ensure best sound quality and optimal surround sound reproduction.

Connecting Devices Equipped with a Digital Audio Output (DVD Player, DVR, etc.)

The PT8051 can accept digital input signals using standard, commercially available optical or coaxial cables.

Used to set the delay time that is used for the CENTER channel. This setting is adjustable from 0 to 5 mS (milliseconds) in one millisecond increments. This setting is useful if your PT8051 main unit cannot be positioned near the TV. As a general rule one foot (30cm) is equal to a delay of approximately 1mS. Therefore if your PT8051 main unit was one foot from the screen you would set the CENTER delay for 1mS. It can also be adjusted so that the sound coming from the PT8051 is synchronized with the video image. The default setting is CENTER DELAY TURNED OFF.

Rear Delay Setting

Used to set the delay time that is used for the REAR (surround) channel. This setting is adjustable from 0 to 15mS (milliseconds) in three millisecond increments. This setting is used to accurately reproduce the surround information that is encoded on certain DVDs as the producer intended by allowing you to tailor the sound to your listening room size. In this case you would set the delay as follows;

The delay in milliseconds for the rear (surround) speaker setting is equal to the number of feet closer that speaker is to your listening position than the main unit.

For an example, let’s assume the main unit is 15 ft away from the main listening position and the rear (surround) unit is 5 feet away.

Surround’s Delay = 15ft – 5ft = 10ft = 10mS of delay

In this case you would select 9 mS from the menu as it is closest to 10 mS.

The idea is to have the sound from the main and rear units reach your ears at the same time, in relation to the signal being sent to those speakers. For the speakers that are close to you, a delay has to be added so that their sound reaches your ears at the same time as the speakers

that are farther away from you, with respect to the music signal that is sent to all the speakers at the same instant. The default setting is REAR DELAY TURNED OFF.
