1. Front Satellite Speakers
Before attaching the cables, position the two front satellite speakers on either side of your computer monitor or television about the same distance from each other as from you. Angle them to face you. Place the two rear speakers behind you and about the same distance apart as the front speakers. Your Logitech® Z-5450 speaker satellites are wall mountable. Unscrew the satellite stand from the satellite speaker base, exposing the stability pins on the base. Rotate the speaker stand 180 degrees and reattach the stand to the base, ensuring the stability pins line up with the openings provided. Do not over tighten the screw. Mount the speakers using appropriate wall anchors through the holes in the stands.
For a pro-audio look, remove the cloth grilles by pulling them straight
off. Removing the grilles will not affect sound quality.
2. Center Channel Speaker
Depending on your configuration, place your center channel speaker on your desk (angled up), on top of your monitor or television (angled down), or wall-mounted (angled down). Your Logitech® Z-5450 speaker satellites are wall mountable. Unscrew the satellite stand from the satellite speaker base, exposing the stability pins on the base. Rotate the speaker stand 180 degrees and reattach the stand to the base, ensuring the stability pins line up with the openings provided. Do not over tighten the screw. Mount the speakers using appropriate wall anchors through the holes in the stands.
3. Subwoofer
Because bass frequencies are non-directional, the subwoofer can be placed anywhere in relation to the other speakers. To ensure optimum sound quality, do not block the driver or the bass port. To achieve the strongest bass, place the subwoofer near a wall, corner or under a desk.
Note: Please ensure adequate ventilation around the subwoofer. Keep the cooling fins on the back of
the subwoofer at least 6 inches away from any object.
4. Digital SoundTouch™ Control Center
Position the Digital SoundTouch™ Control Center where it is easy to reach.
5. With the power off and the speakers in place, connect the speaker wire to the spring clips on the front and center satellite speakers and to the corresponding spring clips on the subwoofer. For each speaker wire, make sure to match the red and black spring clip terminals on the subwoofer with the corresponding terminals on the speakers. To connect, push the tab on the spring clip, insert the wire into the connector, and release the tab. Make sure that you match the wire color to the spring clip colors on both the subwoofer and the satellite.
For your safety, set up the entire system before plugging the subwoofer and the wireless rear speakers into a power source.

Connecting Your Speakers
6. Wireless Rear Speakers
Plug in the wireless rear speakers and the Digital SoundTouch™ Control Center. When the link LEDs on the back of the Control Center turn solid, and the LEDs on each rear speaker are solid blue, the system is connected.
7. Use the remote control or the control pod to select an input source.
8. When using a digital connection: Follow the instructions on the audio device to enable/confirm digital audio output.
9. For 5.1 output: Enable Dolby® or DTS® output on your game or movie. Follow the game or movie audio menu for instructions.
10. If using digital content: The control pod will automatically detect and display the digital stream you selected in step 7. If the effect does not appear on the control pod, see the troubleshooting section of this guide.
11. If using stereo content: The effect button allows you to select between Stereo (front left/right speakers only) and Dolby® Pro Logic® II Music or Movie Mode to create 5.1 audio from a 2-channel stereo source.
12. Once the input and effect are correctly displayed on the control pod, you are ready to enjoy your new speakers.
Pairing the Wireless Rear Speakers
The wireless rear speakers are automatically paired with the system at the factory. When you fi rst setup the system, the system will automatically locate the rear speakers. A successful connection is indicated by solid LEDs on both the Digital SoundTouch™ Control Center and the wireless rear speakers.
Troubleshooting the Wireless Rear Speakers
If the wireless rear speakers lose their connection to the system, fi rst use the Wireless LEDs to diagnose the problem (see below). To re-establish a link, fi rst locate the pinhole for the connect button on the bottom of the Control Center. Using a paperclip, push the connect button through the pinhole. The system will start looking for the wireless rear speakers, as indicated by the fl ashing Link LEDs on the back of the Control Center. The system will continue looking for the rear speakers for 2 minutes.
During the 2 minutes that the system is searching for the rear speakers, open the sealing plug on the back of each rear satellite. Using a paperclip, push the connect button through the pinhole on the back of the rear speakers. The speakers will start searching for the system, as indicated by the fl ashing blue LEDs on the front
of the speakers. Once the speakers link up with the system, all LEDs will change to a solid color.

Effects
The effect button is used to select the type of surround sound or audio technology you want to use with a particular input. In many cases, the control pod will recognize what audio technology is streaming from your audio device, and will automatically select it.
For example, if you are watching a DVD and have selected the Dolby® Digital 5.1 stream on the DVD, then when you select the DVD audio input, Dolby® Digital will automatically be the selected effect. The control pod will default to the last effect used by whatever input source you are using.
You can use the ‘effect’ button to select a different audio technology if you wish to change it. Note that not all effects are available for all inputs (refer to the table):
Repeatedly pressing the ‘effect’ button rotates through the available options for that type of input. If only one effect option is available, then the effect button will have no impact.
Whenever the input or bitstream changes, the previously selected effect will be automatically re-selected. For example, if you select Dolby® Pro Logic® II while listening to the 6 ch. Direct input, ‘Dolby® Pro Logic® II’ will be stored in memory for the ‘Direct’ Input. The next time you select the Direct input, Dolby® Pro Logic® II will be automatically selected as the effect.
When returning from Standby, the previously selected input and effect will be shown on the control pod. Each effect is described on the next page. For more information about surround sound and other digital
audio technologies, visit www.logitech.com.

Test State
The ‘Test’ state is only accessible by pressing the ‘Test’ button on the remote control. When in this state, a pink noise ‘test tone’ will be played from each speaker instead of the selected source input. This tone will come from one speaker at a time, in 2.5 second intervals, in the following order: left front, center, right front, right rear, left rear, sub. To exit this state, just press the ‘Test’ button again.
Use the Test state to verify that your speakers are connected properly, or to set levels between the rear, front, and center channels.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Can I extend the speaker cables? A. Yes. Purchase standard speaker wire, 20AWG and cut and strip to desired length. Using any other
gauge wire is not recommended, may damage the system and may void your warranty.
Q. There is no sound coming from one (or more) speakers. A. Confi rm that the speaker is connected properly. When inserting the wire, make sure the bare wire
sits on the metal connector in the spring clip. This is critical – metal must be on metal – or the connection will not be suffi cient. Sometimes the plastic wire shielding is pushed onto the metal connector, which prevents the wire from making a solid contact with the connector in the spring clip. This will also prevent your speaker from working. If this is the case, simply pull the wire out some so that the wire makes a clean contact with the metal part of the connector.
Q. What happens if the speaker wires are reversed? (red wire to black spring clip on one speaker, red wire
to red spring clip on the subwoofer, or vise versa)
