How to install a home theater


Follow these steps:
•Plan out your setup. Before you start unpacking speakers and moving furniture, it's a good idea to have a placement scheme in mind.
•2
Consider the location of the outlets in your home theatre room. If possible, choose a room powered by a single circuit breaker to reduce the risk of damage due to the overload your home theatre system might cause. Supplement the number of outlets with power strips.
•3
Place your TV. The television should be placed where it can be viewed straight on. The center of the screen should be aligned with the eyes of a seated person.
•4
Place your speakers before you start hooking things up. If there are hearing-imparied people in your household, place the speakers so that someone could sit directly next to at least one speaker.
•5
Position your central channel speaker above or below your TV. If you put it on top of your TV, make sure the front edge of the speaker is aligned evenly with the front of your TV screen.
•6
Place your front left and right speakers at equal distances on either side of your TV. The height of your left and right speakers should match the height of your central channel speaker.
•7
Put your surround speakers at equal distances to the left and right of where you would normally sit and view your TV. Do not point your surround speakers directly at your viewing position. Try pointing them toward the back of the room or toward the ceiling.
•8
Place your subwoofer to the side of the room, about halfway between your viewing position and your TV. You can adjust the bass reaction of your subwoofer by moving it closer to a wall to increase the bass, or by moving it away from a wall to decrease it.
•9
Connect your speakers and theater system by running flat speaker cables down the length of your baseboard or lower portion of your wall. Consult your owner's manual for exact instructions.

I have just moved my speakers around in my room and they were working perfectly before. Now only one speaker is playing and when i swap the inputs the other speaker will work fine but they other one wont....


check the mass terminated cable connecting the controller to the base speaker. This connection becomes flacky generally requiring a good contact cleaner solution being needed to be applied to restore the connections.
Go to radio shack and ask for a plastics safe contact cleaner then after disconnecting the mass terminated cable spray it liberly. Then reinsert while still wet then work in and out a few times. You can do this for all the cables connecting to the pc as well. This should restore your dead channel....hop it works :-)

Please check the cable using a multimeter. Check if the cable is broken.

Just by shifting the system, I fear if you could have an issue like this. Also check the Subwoofer box if its working or not. Good Luck.

Subwoofer blows internal fuse when receiver is turned on


Has it ever worked?

Try this - connect one pair of its speaker wires at a time and test it. Watch the polarity.

• Make sure all cube speaker arrays are connected to the proper terminals according to their
position in your room.
• Check to be sure all wires are connected to your surround receiver with the proper polarity
(+ to + and – to – wires). Incorrect wiring can result in a total loss of module output.
• Correct any wiring problems before you plug in your receiver and turn it on.

Unwanted sound from subwoofer.


switch your subwoofer off from the socket for at least 30 minutes and check if the noise is still there,if its still there open it and play a movie then press it lower if the sound stops then you will have to put some toilet papers at the back of it ,thats what I did to mine.

Loud humming coming from subwoofer


This can be caused due to an increase in local interference. The hum is decreased when you plug in the satellites because the interference is spread over a longer area. You may notice that speakers tend to hum around things like cell phones and power outlets. To see if this is the case, move the speakers to another part of the room if you can, slide the desk around, plug the computer in at another room, something like this. If the hum gets louder or quieter, it is interference at your new place. This can be solved by finding a new area to set up your computer stuff at. Since it's mostly the subwoofer, try elevating it off the ground, there may be a power main running under the floor.
