Using the TV as a center speaker (only models with TV center speaker mode)
Models with TV center speaker mode have CENTER SPEAKER IN terminals on the back of the TV.
If [Speakers] is set to [Audio system], you can use the TV speakers as a center speaker for a home theater simply by connecting an AV receiver to the CENTER SPEAKER IN terminal of the TV*.
*The TV and AV receiver must be connected by either an HDMI cable or digital optical cable.
Speaker cable connection
Connect the TV and AV receiver with a speaker cable.
- AV receiver
- Speaker cable (not supplied)
Use a speaker cable (not supplied) to connect the AV receiver to the CENTER SPEAKER IN terminal of the TV.
When connecting, make sure to twist the ends of the speaker cable and insert them into the connection terminals of the TV and AV receiver.
The CENTER SPEAKER IN terminal varies depending on the model. Refer to the figures below when connecting the speaker cable.
*Strip about 10 mm (13/32 inches) of insulation from the speaker cable at each end.
- To prevent the wires of the speaker cable from touching each other, make sure not to strip too much of the speaker cable.
- Connect the speaker cable properly so that the polarities (+/-) between the TV and AV receiver match.
