How to connect speakers cords

For each speaker, connect the (+) and (–)terminals on the rear panel to the (+) and(–)terminals marked on the speakers respectively.

1Twist and remove the insulation at the end of each speaker cord (not supplied).

2Press and hold the clamp of the speaker terminal (1), then insert the speaker cord (2).

3Release the clamp.

About the speaker impedance

The required speaker impedance of the front speakers differs depending on whether both the FRONT SPEAKERS 1 and FRONT SPEAKERS 2 terminals are used or only one of them is used.

When you connect only one pair of front speakers, use front speakers with 8 – 16 Ω impedance.

When you connect both pairs of front speakers, use front speakers with 16 – 32 Ω impedance.

Connecting the subwoofer speaker

By connecting a subwoofer, you can enhance the bass or reproduce the original LFE signals recorded in the digital software.

Connect the input jack of a powered subwoofer to the SUBWOOFER OUT jack on the rear panel, using a cable with RCA pin plugs (not supplied).

• Refer also to the manual supplied with your subwoofer.

Note:

You can place a subwoofer wherever you like since bass sound is non-directional.Normally place it in front of you.

To obtain the best possible sound from this system, place all the speakers except the subwoofer at the same distance from the listening position with each speaker’s front faced toward the listener.

Then, change the subwoofer and speaker settings to fit your listening conditions (see pages 22 to 24).

You can set the speakers quickly according to the number of speakers you have connected.

See “Setting Speakers Quickly” on page 21.
