The HTP-2 is a 5.1-channel speaker package that consists of five satellite speakers and one subwoofer
with an internal amplifier. The HTP-2 features the SL-105 subwoofer with L/R mixing circuits and a built-
in cut-off filter as the subwoofer and the D-L5 speakers with an aluminum cabinet and OMF-cone as the
five satellite speakers. Simply connect the speakers to your AV amplifier or receiver for superb
surround audio playback.

B Auto standby switch (AUTO STANDBY)
This switch is used to turn on and off the auto standby
ON: This activates the auto standby function.
If a constant level signal is not received from the
amplifier (or receiver) over a period of a few minutes,
the SL-105 automatically enters the standby state. If a
constant level signal is later received from the amplifier
(or receiver), the power is automatically turned back on.
OFF: Deactivates the auto standby function.
· The auto standby function operates on the existence
or absence of a constant level input signal. If the auto
standby function does not operate properly, try
slightly increasing (or decreasing) the output level of
the amplifier or receiver. (Note that output levels of
some amplifiers and receivers cannot be adjusted.
For more details regarding your components, refer to
the instruction manual supplied with them.)
· If noise from peripheral components causes the
incorrect operation of the auto standby function, or if
outputting low volumes (i.e., during the nighttime)
causes the auto standby function to activate, turn off
the auto standby function.
· The auto standby function only operates while the
power switch for the SL-105 is turned on.

I Subwoofer SL-105
I Layout of your speaker system
The supplied satellite speakers are all of the same
functionality, so use three as the left/right front and center
speakers, and two as the surround speakers.
Front left/right speakers and center speakers
These three speakers should be placed in front of the
· All three speakers should be placed at the same
· Placement should be such so that the speakers all
aim at the ears of the listener when the listener is
listening to music or watching the screen. The center
speakers enhance the sound effects from the two
front speakers and add clarity to movements in the
sound for a much richer sound image.
Surround left/right speakers
Surround speakers should be placed to the side of the
listener or behind the listener. These speakers produce
sound movements in all directions, create a sound
environment that reflects the background, and create
the sensation of being in the middle of the action.
The subwoofer can be installed anywhere in the room, but
in most situations you will obtain the best results by placing
the subwoofer to the side near a corner of the room. The
quality and level of the bass sounds from the subwoofer will
differ depending on the location where the subwoofer is
placed and the layout of the room, so it is recommended to
place the subwoofer in several locations and find the
position that provides the best results.

I Securing the satellite speakers
Mounting the speakers on the wall
Make sure that the walls are rigid enough for supporting the
speaker's weight. Since the weight a mounting screw can
support varies greatly depending on the wall material and
the position of the reinforcing ribs embedded in the wall, be
sure to check the wall strength at the location where the
mounting screws will be placed. Use the thickest and
longest possible mounting screws whose head diameter is
less than 7.5 mm and shank diameter is less than 3.5 mm.
The screws should stick out from the wall at a length
between 9 and 17 mm. (Requesting such a screw from a
manufacturer is recommended.)
I Using spacers
Attaching the supplied spacers is recommended for
obtaining the best sound quality. Also, by attaching the
provided spacers, the speakers will not slide easily for a
more stable installation.
9 to 17 mm
Installation using commercially-available stands and
The speaker bottoms are equipped with screw holes so that
you can attach commercially-available stands or mounting
fixtures for a variety of mounting options. (M5 x 2 screw
holes; 60-mm pitch)
When attaching an accessory item to a speaker, be careful
of the length of the screws used. Use only screws that
provide the required strength with a screw length between 7
and 10 mm.
