Connecting 5.1-channel speaker system with front B speaker connection

If you are not using surround back speakers or front high speakers, you can connect additional front B speakers to the SPEAKERS SURROUND BACK/BI-AMP/FRONT HIGH/FRONT B terminals.

Connect each speaker as illustrated below.

Before connecting cables, be sure to disconnect the AC power cord (mains lead).

For details on how to connect speaker cables to the receiver, see “How to connect speaker cables.”

After you have made the front B speaker connection, set [Speaker Setting] - [Surround Back Speakers Assign] to [Front B Speakers] from the home menu.

You can select the front speaker system you want to use by pressing SPEAKERS on the receiver.


  • You can also set the assignment for the surround back speaker terminals on the display panel. Set [SB ASSIGN] to [SPK B] in the [<SPEAKER>] menu.
  • You can only set [SB ASSIGN] if the speaker pattern is set to a setting that does not have surround back and front high speakers.
