CAUTION

  • Wireless receiving antennas are built into the subwoofer and surround speakers. Keep the units away from water and moisture.
  • For optimal listening performance, make sure that the areas around the subwoofer and surround speakers locations are clear of any obstructions.

Surround speaker mode (HW-Q930C only)
An optimal surround sound may be delivered depending on the position of the surround speaker. See the illustration below for speaker positioning. To activate this mode, select the Surround Speaker mode using the remote control of the Soundbar.

NOTE

  • In Front speaker mode, position the front speakers toward you.
  • The surround speaker mode is enabled by default.

NOTE

  • If the main unit is powered off, the subwoofer will go into stand-by mode and the STANDBY LED on the rear of the sub-woofer will turn red after blinking in blue several times.
  • If you use a device that uses the same frequency as the Soundbar near the Soundbar, interference may cause some sound interruption.
  • The maximum transmission distance of the main unit’s wireless signal is about 32.8 ft (10 m) but may vary depending on your operating environment. If a steel-concrete or metallic wall is between the main unit and the subwoofer, the system may not operate at all because the wireless signal cannot penetrate metal.
  • The surround speaker system is supported by applicable models only.

NOTE

  • When you connect the TV that supports the HDMI ARC (Audio Return Channel) to the Soundbar with an HDMI cable, you can transmit digital video and audio data without connecting a separate optical cable.
  • We recommend you use a coreless HDMI cable if possible. If you use a cored HDMI cable, use one whose diameter is less than 0.55 inches (14 mm).
  • This function is not available if the HDMI cable does not support ARC. When the audio in a broadcast is encoded in Dolby Digital and the “Digital Output Audio Format” on your TV is set to PCM, we recommend that you change the setting to Dolby Digital. When the setting on the TV is changed, you will experience better sound quality. (The TV menu may use different words for Dolby Digital and PCM depending on the TV manufacturer.)
  • The ARC/eARC protocols support Dolby Atmos.
  • Make sure that the content supports Dolby Atmos®.
