Inspecting For Damage
Examine each unit carefully for signs of shipping damage. If there is any damage, do not install the system. Consult the store where you purchased the system or call the appropriate Creative Technology, Ltd. support group at the number listed at the end of this publication. Save the shipping carton and inserts in case you have to transport the system later. All the items shown in the illustration should be included. If anything is missing, notify the retailer.
These instructions assume you have a DVD player with a coaxial Dolby Digital (AC-3) output (for example, the Creative Labs PC-DVD Encore). These instructions also assume your sound card supports processing of DirectSound3D, including front and rear two-channel minijack line outputs (like Creative Labs Sound Blaster PCI series or Sound Blaster Live! series). Sound Blaster Live! owners should utilize the exclusive Digital DIN connection, to hear the clearest digital audio available. Conventional 2channel sound cards such as Sound Blaster 16 or the Sound Blaster AWE series can also be used with DTT2500 Digital, but these cards will not provide rear channel output when playing games using DirectSound3D or its derivatives. One pair of satellites has cables that are 3 meters (9 feet) long. The other pair has cables that are 5 meters (16 feet) long. Typically, the two satellites with the longer cables will be used on the surround channels, but the satellites are otherwise identical. If you need extra cable length for the front channel satellites, use the pair with the longer cables instead. All the speakers are magnetically shielded, but the subwoofer is not.

The Front Satellites. The left front and right front satellites play stereo music, the off-screen sounds of video playback and the front channels of four channel games. These satellites should be placed to the sides of your monitor (see Diagram A). Be sure to have a clear line of sight from your listening position to these satellites. The satellites intended for front placement have 3 meters (9 feet) of cable. Install the satellites Desktop Stands when using them on the desktop (see page 6). The satellites may also be hung on the wall behind the monitor using the screw and wall anchors provided (see Mounting The Speakers page 7). , If you wish to save desktop space, use the hook and loop fasteners to attach the satellite speakers to the sides of the computer monitor (see Diagram B). The Center Channel Speaker. The center channel speaker provides the onscreen effects and dialog in Dolby Digital, Dolby Surround or Creative Multi Speaker Surround modes. It should be placed as close to the center of your computer monitor as possible.
Playing Multi-format DVD Games These games have Dolby Digital or Dolby Pro Logic movie clips mixed with the actual game sequence. Select the MUSIC or MOVIE mode by pressing the Creative Multi Speaker Surround (CMSS) button until the LED for MUSIC or MOVIE mode lights up.

Playing VCD Movies:
Using PC-DVD player on PC 1. Disable the Creative Multi Speaker Surround (CMSS) function by pressing the CMSS button until all four LEDs are off. For VCD movies with Dolby Surround-encoded stereo program: You can use the Dolby Pro Logic decoder, by selecting PRO LOGIC DIGITAL IN, to experience 5.1-channel movie viewing. For VCD movies: You will have Digital 2.1 channel output. To enhance the experience, enable the Digital Pro Logic by pressing the DOLBY SURROUND button until the DIGITAL IN LED lights up. Using SoftMPEG player or PlayCenter on PC 1. Select the MOVIE mode by pressing the Creative Multi Speaker Surround (CMSS) button until the LED for MOVIE mode lights up. This mode lets you experience the surround sound with 5.1channel output; all dialog and central sounds will be heard through the center speaker, while music and off-stage sounds are heard through the other four satellites. If you are using PlayCenter to play the VCDs, disable all CMSS effects in your PlayCenter - use only DTT2500 Digital CMSS MOVIE mode. Using VCD player on TV 1. Connect Video Out of the VCD player to Video Input of your television. 2. Connect the Audio Out of the VCD player to the Line In of your DTT2500 Digital decoder amplifier unit. 3. Select the MOVIE mode by pressing the Creative Multi Speaker Surround (CMSS) button until the LED for MOVIE mode lights up. You can experience surround sound instead of mono/stereo sound; all dialog and central sounds will be heard through the center speaker, while music and off-stage sounds are heard through the other four satellites.
There are many mounting possibilities. The monitor stand can be attached with hook and loop fasteners to the top of the computer monitor. It directs the sound down towards the listener (see Diagram C). If your computer monitors construction directs the sound of the center channel satellite towards you without a stand, attach the satellite directly to the top of the monitor, using the hook and loop fasteners (see
Diagram D). Position the face of the center channel so that it is as far forward as possible. Use a Desktop Stand to position a center channel satellite in front of the monitor. It directs the sound up towards the listener (see Diagram E). The Center Speaker may also be hung on the wall behind the monitor using the screw and wall anchors provided (see Mounting The Speakers page 7). ,
The Rear Satellites. The rear satellites provide the surround effects in Dolby Digital, Dolby Surround and Creative Multi Speaker Surround modes. They also provide the discreet rear sounds produced in four channel gaming. 5 meters (16 feet) of cable is provided with the two remaining small satellites for more flexibility in rear channel placement. The rear satellites may be placed in any convenient sites alongside the listener, including sites slightly forward of the listening location. The rear satellites do not have to be at exactly the same height, nor at the
same height as the front satellites. If you have side walls close to your listening position, excellent placement for the rear satellites is slightly behind your listening position, slightly above ear level (see Diagram F). The satellites may be hung on the wall using the screw and wall anchors provided (see Mounting The Speakers page 7). Do not be concerned if this placement is not practical. Any rear satellite placement to the left and right side of the listening position will provide strong directional and surround effects.
The rear satellites may be installed on their convenient floor stands. While listening, the stands should be positioned to the left and right of your listening position (see Diagram G). The Floor Stands are small enough to be stowed underneath a desk when not in use. See page 7 for floor stand assembly instructions. Larger work surfaces can accommodate both front and surround pairs of satellites on their Desktop Stands. Try the extreme corners of a desk using the Desktop Stands (see Diagram H). Also, you may attach the rear satellites under a desktop or at the sides of a desk using the hook and loop fasteners (see Diagram I). After you have positioned the rear satellites, use the test sound to make sure each speaker can be heard clearly. The Subwoofer. The subwoofers optimum position is on the floor against the wall under the computer desk. The nearer the subwoofer is to the corner of the room, the stronger its maximum bass output will be. We strongly recommend placing the subwoofer on the floor (see Diagram J). Leave at least 8 cm (3 inches) of space between the subwoofer face and a wall. Small objects in front of, but not touching the subwoofer (table legs, for instance) will have no effect on its sound. If you have no available floor space, the subwoofer can be placed on a shelf, desktop or other sites, but its maximum output will be reduced. The subwoofer is not magnetically shielded, so position it at least 18 inches away from a computer monitor. Substituting a powered subwoofer. You may substitute a powered subwoofer for the subwoofer that comes with the DTT2500 Digital. Connect its line level input (typically an RCA jack) to the dedicated subwoofer output on the back of the Decoder Amplifier, using a shielded audio cable with RCA plugs on each end. Refer to the powered subwoofers User Manual for adjustment procedures.
Playing DVD Movies:
Using PC-DVD player on PC 1. Disable the Creative Multi Speaker Surround (CMSS) function by pressing the CMSS button until all four LEDs are off. For movies with Dolby Digital 5.1 (AC-3) soundtracks: This signal is detected automatically and the DOLBY DIGITAL LED lights up. You will experience Dolby Digital 5.1 channel output. For two-channel movies which are Dolby Surroundencoded carried within the Dolby Digital compressed bitstream: The Dolby Pro Logic decoder will automatically decode the program for 5.1 channel movie experience.
Using DVD player on TV 1. Connect Video Out of the DVD player to Video Input of your television. 2.

Creative Multi Speaker Surround (CMSS)
CMSS is a 2-channel to 5.1-channel sound processor similar in some aspects to a Dolby Surround with Pro Logic processor. CMSS Music mode creates a convincing 5.1 channel surround soundfield with typical stereo sources, whether they are Dolby Surroundencoded or not. It works well with Dolby Pro Logic, WAVE, AVI and MIDI program material. In essence, CMSS Music mode puts you on the stage for the musics performance, surrounding you with the performers. In a similar manner, CMSS Movie mode provides the sonic impression of being front and center at a movie screening. Dialog and all normally centered sounds from a stereo program are heard through the center speaker. Use this mode whenever a music program has sounds you want to blend with on-screen action or dialog. Unlike Pro Logic decoding, CMSS Music, Movie and Four Point modes are appropriate for use with multicoded sources such as DVD games. In some game titles, the movie sequences may be encoded in Dolby Surround but the game sequences may be in the WAV format. CMSS Movie mode supports 6-channel output for.WAV,.AVI,.MIDI and other audio software formats. Few, if any of these kinds of formats are Dolby Surround encoded. The FOURPOINT mode passes the four discreet channel audio of four-channel games direct to each satellite channel. It does not synthesize rear channel output, so stereo signal in this mode will play just through the front two speakers and subwoofer. The STEREO mode plays the Left and Right Front speakers and the subwoofer. It also lets you hear the stereo downmix from any DVD.
Audio Mode Selection
The stereo soundtracks of some movies on the Video CD (VCD format) contain different languages. For example, a two channel soundtrack may contain Mandarin on the right channel and English on the left channel. The VCD program literature should indicate the presence of duallanguage soundtracks. Similarly, some movies in the DVD format will contain dual-language soundtracks. DTT2500 Digital lets you select one of these languages and play it through both the Left and Right speakers. If there is no indication of which channel is which and you hear two different language soundtracks during stereo playback, select the LL and RR settings until you find the language soundtrack you want. The Audio Mode selection feature can only be used with the PCM digital soundtrack of a Video CD or DVD with a stereo soundtrack, not a DVD encoded with Dolby Digital 5.1 sound or Dolby Surround-encoded material. If you have an analog program with separate left and right channels (the analog output of a CD ROM, or the analog stereo output of a software video CD, for instance), you will have to use the balance control in your PCs audio software to mute the undesired channel.
Typically, the 3 meter speaker cables will connect the front and center satellites to the Decoder Amplifier and the 5 meter cables will connect the rear satellites to the Decoder Amplifier. A panel of twelve self-adhesive labels is provided to identify each satellite and subwoofer and the opposite end of the cable connected to a satellite and subwoofer. 1. Identify a 3 meter cable. Most often, a satellite will be used with a desktop stand. In this case, thread the bare wire end of a 3 meter cable through the hole in the desktop stand. Connect this end to a satellite (as shown in Diagram K). Carefully insert the desktop stands attachment arm into the socket in the back of the satellite, taking up any slack in the cable as required. 2. To use this satellite in the front left position, remove the backing from the small, round L label and apply it to the back of the satellite (see Diagram K).
3. Remove the backing from the remaining, longer L label and wrap it around the opposite end of the speaker cable near the RCA-type plug. 4. Place the satellite in the front left position. 5. Repeat this process using another 3 meter cable for the front right satellite, using the R labels. 6. Connect another 3 meter cable to a satellite. Use the C (center) labels. If used, the Monitor Stand attaches to the satellite in the same manner as the Desktop Stands, although it does not have a hole for the speaker wire. Route the wire to the left or right side of the attachment strut. Position the satellite. 7. If you wish to use the Floor Stands with the rear satellites, assemble the stand according to Attaching The Floor Stand instructions on page 7. Use the RS and LS labels (right and left surround) and 5 meter cables. 8. Connect the subwoofer using the last 3 meter cable to the SUB labels.
(MUSIC, MOVIE,FOURPOINT and STEREO)
Dolby Pro Logic
Dolby Surround is an earlier surround sound standard which is decoded with a Pro Logic processor in the DT2500 Digital. The Pro Logic steering circuitry derives separate center and rear channels from encoded stereo program sources. Pro Logic processing provides a convincing movie soundfield when the material is specifically encoded for Dolby Surround. Most older stereo movie soundtracks will only be encoded for Dolby Surround, even though the program source may be a DVDs digital output. Most DVDs containing Dolby Surround program material will cause both the Dolby Digital and Digital Pro Logic lights to illuminate. DTT2500 Digital will decode these digitally transferred Dolby Surround programs through the digital Pro Logic decoder automatically. CD-ROMs and CDs with Dolby Surround encoding will feature the Dolby Surround logo at the beginning of the program or on the packaging. Process these programs by making sure all CMSS indicator lights are off and selecting the Pro Logic Analog Input setting of the Surround Mode button. Do not select a Pro Logic decoding mode if the program material is not encoded for Dolby Surround. Excessive center channel output will result, and most stereo effect will be lost. Use CMSS Movie or Music modes to upmix stereo programs to a realistic 5.1 channel sound field.
3)muting the CD input of your computers software mixer/ volume control application. When playing a DVD game with a mix of Dolby Digital 5.1 sound (a digital signal at the SPDIF input) and soundcard wavetable output (a signal at the analog input), be sure to engage the FOURPOINT mode in the CMSS settings.
Then make sure the speakers are positioned so that the test sound can be clearly heard. Finally, adjust the front panel level controls for the center, subwoofer and rear speakers. Adjust each control so its speaker achieves a balanced output level with the left and right satellites (which provide a fixed reference output level). All Decoder Amplifier functions except for the level controls are disabled while the test sound is running.
The speaker level controls operate at all times. If desired, you may adjust these controls during program material to fine-tune the balance. 9. Mute: Mutes all output from the DTT2500 Digital. Press the button once to mute. Press a second time to restore audio output. The CMSS, Dolby Surround, Audio Mode and Speaker Test buttons are operable during mute.
Hook and Loop Fasteners: When mounting speakers with hook and loop fasteners, make sure that all surfaces are clean and free of dirt and grease. Hard, flat, unpainted surfaces work best with hook and loop fasteners (see Diagram Q). Attach the fastener to the speaker first, remove the backing and adhere to the chosen surface.

Repeated presses of the button selects which channel is fed to both the Left and Right front speakers. LL-Left channel to both Left and Right front speakers.

The test sound moves in sequence from the left satellite, the center speaker, the right satellite, then to the right surround satellite, left surround satellite and the subwoofer. All of the indicator lights will blink on and off while the test sound generator is in operation. The test sound will operate for three complete cycles and then stop. You can terminate the sound at any point by pressing the Speaker Test button again. First use the test sound to verify that each speaker is operating.
