If you have two subwoofers, the second subwoofer can be connected to the SUBWOOFER 2 terminal. Connecting two 9 subwoofers increases the bass sound to achieve more powerful sound reproduction. In this case, the same sound is output from the two subwoofers. 61The 5.1 channel surround system is the most commonly-used in home theaters. To achieve the best possible surround sound, install your speakers as shown below. 14 Bi-amping connection Bi-amping connection of the front speakers for high sound quality with 5.1-channel surround sound. • When using the Front Bi-amping connection, sound will only be output from the front speakers, the surround speakers and the subwoofer. ZONE 2 connection (Multi Zone) With these connections you can simultaneously enjoy the surround sound in the main zone with stereo playback on another component in ZONE 2 (The selection of input devices is limited). See MULTI-ZONE listening on page 58. SL Important VSX-1024 only • Both the surround back speakers and the front height speakers can be connected at the same time. In this case, sound will be output from either the front height speaker or the surround back speaker depending on which one was selected in the Speaker System setting (see The Speaker System setting (VSX-1024 only) on page 57). Speaker B connection You can use the speakers connected to the B speaker terminals to listen to stereo playback in another room. See Switching the speaker terminal on page 18 for the listening options with this setup. • You will not be able to connect the B speakers if you connect the front height speakers in the main zone. Further, if you use the B speakers, a 5.1 ch playback will be the maximum in the main zone. (No sound is output from the surround back speaker.)

The following guidelines should help you to get the best sound from your system. • Surround and surround back speakers should be positioned 60 cm to 90 cm higher than your ears and titled slight downward. Make sure the speakers don’t face each other. For DVD-Audio, the speakers should be more directly behind the listener than for home theater playback. • It is best to angle the speakers towards the listening position. The angle depends on the size of the room. Use less of an angle for bigger rooms. • Try not to place the surround speakers farther away from the listening position than the front and center speakers. Doing so can weaken the surround sound effect. • Refer to the chart below for placement of speakers you intend to connect. • Place the left and right front height speakers at least one meter directly above the left and right front speakers. • If you’re going to place speakers around your CRT TV, use shielded speakers or place the speakers at a sufficient distance from your CRT TV. • The subwoofer can be placed on the floor. Ideally, the other speakers should be at about ear-level when you’re listening to them. Putting the speakers on the floor (except the subwoofer), or mounting them very high on a wall is not recommended. • When not connecting a subwoofer, connect speakers with low frequency reproduction capabilities to the front channel. (The subwoofer’s low frequency component is played from the front speakers, so the speakers could be - Place the surround speakers at 120o from the center. If you, (1) use the surround back speaker, and, (2) don’t use the front height speakers, we recommend placing the damaged.) • After connecting, be sure to conduct the Auto MCACC (speaker environment setting) procedure. surround speaker right beside you. See Automatically setting up for surround sound (MCACC) - If you intend to connect only one surround back on page 26. speakers, place it directly behind you. - If the surround speakers cannot be set directly to the side of the listening position with a 7.1-channel system, the surround effect can be enhanced by turning off the Up Mix function (see Setting the Up Mix function (VSX-1024 only) on page 39). • For the best stereo effect, place the front speakers 2 m to CAUTION • Make sure that all speakers are securely installed. This not only improves sound quality, but also reduces the risk of damage or injury resulting from speakers being knocked over or falling in the event of external shocks such as earthquakes. 3 m apart, at equal distance from the TV. • If you’re using a center speaker, place the front speakers at a wider angle. If not, place them at a narrower angle. • Place the center speaker above or below the TV so that the sound of the center channel is localized at the TV screen. Also, make sure the center speaker does not cross the line formed by the leading edge of the front left and right speakers. 15 Connecting the speakers The receiver will work with just two stereo speakers (the front speakers in the diagram) but using at least three speakers is recommended, and a complete setup is best for surround sound. Make sure you connect the speaker on the right to the right (R) terminal and the speaker on the left to the left (L) terminal. Also make sure the positive and negative (+/–) terminals on the receiver match those on the speakers. FHL SW C You can use speakers with a normal impedance between 6 Ω and 16 Ω.

Phase matching is a very important factor in achieving proper sound reproduction. If two waveforms are ‘in phase’, they crest and trough together, resulting in increased amplitude, clarity and presence of the sound signal. If a crest of a wave meets a trough, then the sound will be ‘out of phase’ and an unreliable sound image will be produced. If your subwoofer has a phase control switch, set it to the plus (+) sign (or 0°). However, the effect you can actually feel when Phase Control is set to ON on this receiver depends on the type of your subwoofer. Set your subwoofer to maximize the effect. It is also recommended you try changing the orientation or the place of your subwoofer. Set the built-in lowpass filter switch of your subwoofer to OFF. If this cannot be done on your subwoofer, set the cutoff frequency to a higher value. If the speaker distance is not properly set, you may not have a maximized Phase Control effect.

Interrupting a direct connection with other amps or an AV converter (such as an HDMI switch) can cause operational errors. • When the receiver’s Control is turned ON, even if the receiver’s power is in the standby mode, it is possible to output the audio and video signals from a player via HDMI to the TV without producing sound from the receiver, but 4619 Chapter 10 10 Additional information Troubleshooting Incorrect operations are often mistaken for trouble and malfunctions. If you think that there is something wrong with this component, check the points below. Take a look at the other components and electrical appliances being used, because sometimes the problem may lie there. If the trouble isn’t sorted out even after going through the checks below, ask your nearest Pioneer authorized independent service company to carry out repair work. • If the unit does not operate normally due to external effects such as static electricity disconnect the power plug from the outlet and insert again to return to normal operating conditions. General The power does not turn on. Disconnect the power plug from the outlet, and insert again. Make sure there are no loose strands of speaker wire touching the rear panel. This could cause the receiver to shut off automatically. The receiver suddenly switches off. When the Auto Power Down function is working, the power will automatically turn off if the receiver has not operated for several hours. Check the setting for the Auto Power Down function (see The Auto Power Down menu on page 56). After about a minute (you won’t be able to switch the unit on during this time), switch the receiver back on. If the message persists, call a Pioneer authorized independent service company. If there is very little low frequency information in the source material, change your speaker settings to Front: SMALL / Subwoofer: YES, or Front: LARGE / Subwoofer: PLUS (page 53). The HDMI indicator blinks and the power does not turn on. The receiver may have a serious problem. Do not try switching the receiver on. Unplug the receiver from the wall and call a Pioneer authorized independent service company. The power suddenly turns on or off, or the input suddenly changes (When the Control with HDMI is ON). This happens because of the synchronized operation due to the Control with HDMI function. If synchronized operations are not needed, set the Control with HDMI to OFF (see HDMI Setup on page 59). 61 OVERHEAT shows in the display and the power turns off. The temperature within the unit has exceeded the allowable value. Try moving the unit for better ventilation (page 2). Lower the volume level. TEMP shows in the display and the volume level drops.

The Dolby Digital or DTS source you are listening to may not have an LFE channel. Switch the subwoofer setting in Speaker Setting on page 53 to YES or PLUS. Switch the LFE ATT (LFE Attenuate) on page 40 to LFEATT 0 or LFEATT 5. No sound from surround or center speakers. Connect the speakers properly (page 15). Refer to Speaker Setting on page 53 to check the speaker settings. Refer to Channel Level on page 54 to check the speaker levels. The OSD screen (Home Menu, etc.) isn’t displayed. The OSD will not appear if you have connected using the composite output to your TV. Use HDMI connection when setting up the system. The Phase Control feature doesn’t seem to have an audible effect. If applicable, check that the lowpass filter switch on your subwoofer is off, or the lowpass cutoff is set to the highest frequency setting. If there is a PHASE setting on your subwoofer, set it to 0o (or depending on the subwoofer, the setting where you think it has the best overall effect on the sound). Make sure the speaker distance setting is correct for all speakers (see Speaker Distance on page 55). Considerable noise in radio broadcasts. Connect the antenna (page 23) and adjust the position for best reception. Route any loose cables away from the antenna terminals and wires. Fully extend the FM wire antenna, position for best reception, and secure to a wall (or connect an outdoor FM antenna). Connect an additional internal or external AM antenna (page 23). Turn off equipment causing interference or move it away from the receiver (or move antennas farther away from equipment causing noise). Broadcast stations cannot be selected automatically. Connect an outdoor antenna (page 23). Noise during playback of a cassette deck. Move the cassette deck away from your receiver, until the noise disappears. No sound is output or a noise is output when software with DTS is played back. Make sure the player’s settings are correct and/or the DTS signal out is on. Refer to the instruction manual supplied with the DVD player. There seems to be a time lag between the speakers and the output of the subwoofer. See Automatically setting up for surround sound (MCACC) on page 26 to set up your system again using MCACC (this will automatically compensate for a delay in the subwoofer output). After using the Auto MCACC setup, the speaker size setting (LARGE or SMALL) is incorrect. Low-frequency noise could have been caused by an air conditioner or motor. Switch off all appliances in the room and rerun the Auto MCACC setup. 4619 Additional 1010 information 62 Can’t operate the remote control. Check that the profile is correct.

Sound can be deceiving. Over time, your hearing “comfort level” adapts to higher volumes of sound, so what sounds “normal” can actually be loud and harmful to your hearing. Guard against this by setting your equipment at a safe level BEFORE your hearing adapts. ESTABLISH A SAFE LEVEL: 4 Set your volume control at a low setting. 4 Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it comfortably and clearly, without distortion. 4 Once you have established a comfortable sound level, set the dial and leave it there. BE SURE TO OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING GUIDELINES: 4 Do not turn up the volume so high that you can’t hear what’s around you. 4 Use caution or temporarily discontinue use in potentially hazardous situations. 4 Do not use headphones while operating a motorized vehicle; the use of headphones may create a traffic hazard and is illegal in many areas.
