Connecting Your Equipment Speaker terminals
Use good quality speaker wire to connect the speakers to the receiver. 1 Twist around 1/2 inch of bare wire strands together. 2 Unclip the speaker terminal and insert the wire. 3 Snap shut the speaker terminal to secure.
Caution: Make sure that all the bare speaker wire is twisted together and inserted fully into the speaker terminal. If any of the bare speaker wire touches the back panel it may cause the power to cut off as a safety measure.
Hints on speaker placement
Speakers are usually designed with a particular placement in mind. Some are designed to be floorstanding, while others should be placed on stands to sound their best. Some should be placed near a wall; others should be placed away from walls. Follow the guidelines on placement that the speaker manufacturer provided with your particular speakers to get the most out of them. â¢ Place the front left and right speakers at equal distances from the TV. â¢ When placing speakers near the TV, we recommend using magnetically shielded speakers to prevent possible interference, such as discoloration of the picture when the TV is switched on. If you do not have magnetically shielded speakers and notice discoloration of the TV picture, move the speakers farther away from the TV. â¢ Install the center speaker above or below the TV so that the sound of the center channel is localized at the TV screen. CAUTION! If you choose to install the center speaker on top of the TV, be sure to secure it with putty, or by other suitable means, to reduce the risk of damage or injury resulting from the speaker falling from the TV in the event of external shocks such as earthquakes. â¢ If possible, install the surround speakers slightly above ear level. â¢ Try not to install the surround speakers farther away from the listening position than the front and center speakers. Doing so can weaken the surround sound effect. â¢ To achieve the best possible surround sound, install your speakers as shown below. Be sure all speakers are installed securely to prevent accidents and improve sound quality. Overhead view of speaker set up
