Positioning For Optimal Surround Sound

the stereo effect.
· Place the center speaker on the center between the front
left and right speakers. Tilt the speaker upward or down-
ward so that it is directly facing the listening area.
· Place the surround speakers as high as possible, either
directly to the sides of the listening area or else slightly
behind the listening area. Adjust the angles so that these

About Using Speakers Near a TV (Front speaker, Center speaker)
This speaker include magnetic shielding and can therefore be installed close to a TV set. Note, however, that placing speakers too
close to a TV may in some cases produces distortion in the color reception. In such case, turn on the TV and check that color
reproduction is normal. If color is distorted, turn the TV off for 15 to 30 minutes, then turn it back on and check again. (This allows
the TV's degaussing circuitry to correct for the magnetic field from the speakers.) If distortion is still present, move the speakers
further from the TV.
