Proper placement of the
speakers is an important step
in obtaining the most realistic
soundstage possible. These
recommendations are for the
optimum placement of the
loudspeakers. Use these
placement recommendations
as a guide. Slight variations
will not diminish your
listening pleasure.
HT5 loudspeakers are video-
shielded and can safely be
placed near a television.
As Front Speakers
As Surround Speakers
5–6 ft.
HT5
The front speakers should
be placed the same distance
from each other as they are
from the listening position.
They should be placed at
about the same height from
the floor as the listeners’
ears will be, or they may be
angled toward the listeners.
If a center-channel speaker
is used, it should be placed
slightly behind the front left
and right speakers, and no
more than two feet above or
below the tweeters of the
left and right speakers. It is
often convenient to set the
center speaker on top of the
television set. 
The two surround speakers
should be placed slightly
behind the listening position
and, ideally, should face
each other and be at a level
higher than the listeners’
ears. If that is not possible,
they may be placed in the
corners of the room behind
the listening position, angled
in toward the center of the
listening area. The surround
speakers should not call
attention to themselves.
Experiment with their
placement until you hear a
diffuse, ambient sound
accompanying the main-
program material heard in
the front speakers.

The HT5 comes with rubber,
self-adhesive footpads,
which should be attached to
the bottom corners of each
speaker to protect both
your furniture and the
speakers.
Alternative Surround Speaker
Placement
If there is no sound from 
any of the speakers:
• Check that receiver/
amplifier is on and that 
a source is playing.
• Review proper operation 
of your receiver/amplifier.
• Check all wires and con-
nections between receiver/
amplifier and speakers.
• Make sure all wires are
connected. Make sure none 
of the speaker wires are
frayed, cut or punctured.
If there is no sound coming
from one speaker:
• Check the “Balance”
control on your receiver/
amplifier.
• Check all wires and
connections between
receiver/amplifier and
speakers. Make sure all
wires are connected. Make
sure none of the speaker
wires are frayed, cut or
punctured.
• In Dolby* Digital or DTS
®
modes, make sure that the
receiver/processor is
configured so that the
speaker in question is
enabled.
If the system plays at low
volumes but shuts off as
volume is increased:
• Check all wires and
connections between
receiver/amplifier and
speakers. Make sure all
wires are connected. Make
sure none of the speaker
wires are frayed, cut or
punctured.
• If more than one pair of
main speakers is being 
used, check the minimum
impedance requirements of
your receiver/amplifier.
If there is low (or no) bass
output:
• Make sure the connections
to the left and right “Speaker
Inputs” have the correct 
polarity (+ and –).
• If a powered subwoofer is
being used, check the
manufacturer’s instructions
for proper use. 
• If a subwoofer is being
used in Dolby Digital or DTS
mode, make sure your
receiver/processor is
configured so that the
subwoofer and LFE output
are enabled.
If there is no sound from 
the surround speakers:
• Check all wires and con-
nections between receiver/
amplifier and speakers.
Make sure all wires are
connected. Make sure none
of the speaker wires are
frayed, cut or punctured.
• Review proper operation of
your receiver/amplifier and
its surround-sound features.
• Make sure the movie or TV
show you are watching is

Speakers and electronics
terminals have corre-
sponding (+) and (–)
terminals. It is important to
connect both speakers
identically: (+) on the
speaker to (+) on the
amplifier and (–) on the
speaker to (–) on the
amplifier. Wiring “out of
phase” results in thin sound,
weak bass and a poor 
stereo image.
With multichannel surround-
sound systems, connecting 
all of the speakers in your
system with the correct
polarity is important in order
to preserve the proper
ambience and directionality
of the program material.
