Should any solid object or liquid fall into the system, unplug the system and have it checked by qualified personnel before operating it any further. Do not climb on the active subwoofer, as you may fall down and injure yourself, or system damage may result.
On power sources
Before operating the system, check that the operating voltage is identical to your local power supply. The operating voltage is indicated on the nameplate at the rear of the active subwoofer. If you are not going to use the system for a long time, be sure to disconnect the system from the wall outlet (mains). To disconnect the AC power cord (mains lead), grasp the plug itself; never pull the cord. One blade of the plug is wider than the other for the purpose of safety and will fit into the wall outlet (mains) only one way. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, contact your dealer. AC power cord (mains lead) must be changed only at the qualified service shop. The unit is not disconnected from the AC power source (mains) as long as it is connected to the wall outlet, even if the unit itself has been turned off. Install this system so that the power cord can be unplugged from the wall socket immediately in the event of trouble.
On heat buildup
Although the system heats up during operation, this is not a malfunction. If you continuously use this system at a large volume, the system temperature of the back and bottom rises considerably. To avoid burning yourself, do not touch the system.
Place the system in a location with adequate ventilation to prevent heat buildup and prolong the life of the system. Do not place the system near heat sources, or in a place subject to direct sunlight, excessive dust, or mechanical shock. Do not place anything under the speakers that might block the ventilation holes and cause malfunctions. Do not place the system near equipment such as a TV, VCR, or tape deck. (If the system is being used in combination with a TV, VCR, or tape deck, and is placed too close to that equipment, noise may result,
and picture quality may suffer. This is especially likely when using an indoor antenna. Therefore, we recommend using an outdoor antenna.) Use caution when placing the system on surfaces that have been specially treated (with wax, oil, polish, etc.) as staining or discoloration of the surface may result.
Before connecting other components, be sure to turn off and unplug the system.
If you encounter color irregularity on a nearby TV screen
Color irregularities may be observed on certain types of TV sets.
If color irregularity is observed.
Turn off the TV set, then turn it on again after 15 to 30 minutes.
If color irregularity is observed again.
Place the active subwoofer or the speakers further away from the TV set.
Clean the system with a soft dry cloth. Do not use any type of abrasive pad, scouring powder or solvent such as alcohol or benzine. If you have any question or problem concerning your system, please consult your nearest Sony dealer.

Do not leave the remote in an extremely hot or humid place. Do not use a new battery with an old one. Do not drop any foreign object into the remote casing, particularly when replacing the batteries. Do not expose the remote sensor to direct light from the sun or lighting apparatus. Doing so may cause a malfunction. If you do not intend to use the remote for an extended period of time, remove the batteries to avoid possible damage from battery leakage and corrosion.
Installing the system
Install the active subwoofer and speakers as shown in the illustration below. When you install the active subwoofer, allow for a space of at least 0.3 m on the active subwoofers right side.
Speaker (L) Speaker (R)
At least 0.3 m
Do not block the heat ventilation on the rear panel of the active subwoofer. It is recommended to place the active subwoofer on the front edge of a table or rack, etc., to accept the remote signal correctly.
To use the speakers efficiently
Position the speakers so that the distance between each speaker and the listening position (A and B) is the same (from 0.0 to 7.0 m).
Speaker (L) TV Speaker (R) Active subwoofer
Place both speakers the same distance apart as they are from the listening position (to form an isosceles triangle). The speakers should be placed at least 0.6 m apart. Place the speakers forward of the TV. Make sure there are no reflecting obstacles in the way of the speakers.
Both speakers should be pointed straight forward. Do not place the speakers at an angle.
It is recommended to place the speakers on the edge of a table or rack, etc., to prevent sound reflection.
Side view Recommended
To install the speakers on a wall
Before installing the speakers on the wall, prepare screws (not supplied) that are suitable for the hole on the rear of each speaker.

Remove the screw (pre-installed) at the rear of the speaker.
Detach the speaker stand.
Disconnect the speaker cords from the speaker.
Take the speaker stand out. Reconnect the speaker cords to the speakers.
The connector and color tube of the speaker cords are the same color as the label of the jacks to be connected. Be sure to match the speaker cords to the appropriate terminals on the speakers: the speaker cord with the color tube to 3, and the speaker cord without the color tube to #. Do not catch the speaker cord insulation in the speaker terminals.

This movie theater sound format is more advanced than Dolby Surround Pro Logic. In this format, the surround speakers output stereo sound with an expanded frequency range, and a subwoofer channel for deep bass is independently provided. This format is also called 5.1 with the subwoofer channel designed as the 0.1 channel (since it functions only when a deep bass effect is needed). All six channels in this format are recorded separately for superior channel separation. Furthermore, since all the signals are processed digitally, less signal degradation occurs.
Dolby Pro Logic II
Dolby Pro Logic II creates five full-bandwidth output channels from 2 channel sources. This is done using an advanced, high-purity matrix surround decoder that extracts the spatial properties of the original recording without adding any new sounds or tonal colorations.
Digital audio compression technology developed by Digital Theater Systems, Inc. This technology conforms to 5.1-channel surround. This format comprises of stereo rear channel and there is discrete subwoofer channel in this format. DTS provides the same 5.1 discrete channels of high quality digital audio. The good channel separation is realized due to the all channel data being recorded discretely and processed in digitally.
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is an interface that supports both video and audio on a single digital connection, allowing you to enjoy high quality digital picture and sound.

S-Force PRO Front Surround
Sonys long-term involvement in surround technology (and the vast amounts of acoustic data accumulated as a result) has led to the development of all-new processing method and advanced DSP to handle this task effectively, which we call S-Force PRO Front Surround. Compared with previous front surround technologies, S-Force PRO Front Surround reproduces a more convincing sense of distance and space, resulting in a true surround sound experience without the need for rear speakers.
