All four of the small speakers are identical, the original speaker wires are color coded. the very ends are all black and red, corresponding to the black and red connections on the back of the receiver and on the speaker, and there is another color band lower on the wire, which corresponds to the color on the receiver speaker connectors that details front right, front left, rear right, rear left, center, subwoofer.

If you are using standard speaker wire, it has two colors. Pick one for the red, and one for the black.
Just be consistent and connect all speakers the same at both ends (Copper color to plus-red / silver color to minus-black)

How to setup my LHT854 to route my LG 42LN5300 TV through the speakers?


You probably need to be a bit clearer as to what you want. But the f (function) key on the unit allows you to change the input To ARC if you have it set up. If you switch off your TV /stereo using the TV remote only this should shut down both. When you turn it on again both should turn on with the sound routed through your stereo ( when you turn on you need to wait a short while while the stereo starts up)

Lg lht854....wont play sound out of rear and center speakers


Try setting it first on surround mode because it is normal for the rear speakers not to come on when it is the surround mode is off. For the center speakers make sure it is hooked up properly. Follow the instruction if you have one. Lastly I never heard of center speakers have two speakers in it but if it does and you only have one set of wire to it then one of the speakers is no good.

LG LHT854 Speaker issue


Have you tried the VSM (Virtual Sound Matrix) button on the remote? I think you will have to scroll through the various sound processors ie..stage...virtual matrix..etc...to find the one that will have all surround speakers working. Hope this helps

I have an almost exact set-up and you will only get sound out of your rear speakers when the TV channel is broadcasting in 5.1 Ch Stereo. Otherwise the sound is limited to your front, center, and woofer speakers.

Center speaker and wireless rear speakers have no sound


I had the same issue, but apparently...it's not an issue. What I discovered is that the system was fine, but the station I was watching didn't broadcast in 5.1 surround sound. Therefore, only the front speakers will have sound. Try putting a dvd in, or listening to a gameing system through it. If you don't have sound after listening to something that puts out full surround sound, then you know you have an issue.

Is there any way to run an Xbox 360 through it to


if you hook up a fiber optic cable from your main dvd component thingy straight to your tv, then all sound from tv will come out the left and right front speaker and sub woofer. only downside is your center and rear speakers wont be in use, but its better than nothing. your tv of course has to have an input for the fiber optic cable.

The background music is louder than the voices


in the menu there should be some type of set up for this, it will most times show you on your screen a room with all the speakers in it and ask you to hit test then it will shoot a white noise type of sound around to each speaker and ask if you heard it, there are then adjustments you can make for the front, rear, and side sperkers independent of one another.

Setup and Menu buttons do nothing on my LG LHT854


You need to press "Input" on the remote and keep pressing it until you get to the connection that you are using (e.g.: HDMI, etc). Once on that, you can use the setup screen. It took me several hours to figure that out.
