  CONNECTING AUDIO SOURCES 

You  can  connect  up  to  three  stereo  audio  sources  to  your  
Soundbar. There are three inputs on the terminal panel with 
twin phono jack connection -

TV input to connect audio from a TV. 

• 

DVD  input  to  connect  the  2  channel  stereo  analogue 

• 

audio output of a DVD player.
CD input to connect audio from a CD player. This input 

• 

can  also  be  used  to  connect  an  portable  audio  player 
with a jack to phono cable (supplied).

These inputs are located on the underside terminal panel of the 
Soundbar.

NOTE:-  Although  named TV,  DVD  and  CD  these  inputs  are 
compatible with most line level sources including personal 
computers, radio tuners etc if the correct connecting cable 
is used.

To connect a source to one of these inputs:

Connect  the  stereo  phono  cable  (one  supplied)  to  the 

• 

DVD, TV or CD input jacks of your Soundbar.
Connect the other end of the cable to the output jacks 

• 

of your source.
Check  that  the  left  and  right  channels  are  connected 

• 

correctly at both ends.

To connect a portable audio player to the CD input:

Connect  the  phono  plugs  from  a  jack  to  phono  cable 

• 

(supplied) to the CD input jacks of your Soundbar.
Connect the jack plug at the other end of the cable to the 

• 

headphone jack of your portable audio player.

NOTE:- There is also a front-mounted MP3 jack for connection 
of  a  portable  audio  player  with  a  jack-to-jack  cable  (not 
supplied). See the next page for more details.

You  can  connect  the  audio  output  from  a  portable  audio 
player to the MP3 input on the control panel.

Connecting a portable audio player to the MP3 input:

Connect one end of a stereo 3.5mm jack-to-jack cable 

• 

(not  supplied)  to  the  headphone  outlet  of  your  audio 
player.
Connect the other end of the cable to the MP3 input of 

• 

the Soundbar.

This input is located on the front control panel.

Connecting to a SCART connector on your TV:

If your TV only has SCART connections, you will need a SCART 
adaptor (not supplied). 

Connect  the  plugs  at  one  end  of  the  audio/video  RCA 

• 

cable (supplied) to the TV input jacks on the terminal 
panel of your Soundbar. The plugs are colour coded to 
match the jack colours.
Connect the other end of the cable to the jacks on the 

• 

SCART adaptor.
Connect the SCART adaptor to a free SCART connector on 

• 

the TV.

NOTE:- Some SCART connectors on your TV may not include 
audio outputs. Where possible, choose a SCART input that is 
intended for use with a video recorder as this should have an 
audio output.

USING A SUBWOOFER

Your  Soundbar  features  a  subwoofer  output.  If  you  want 
to extend the low bass response of your Soundbar you can 
connect an external subwoofer to the subwoofer output.

Connecting a subwoofer:

Choose  a  suitable  location  in  your  room  for  the 

• 

subwoofer.
Measure the cable length you will need to connect your 

• 

Soundbar to the subwoofer in this location.

To the Subwoofer input

Obtain a single phono cable of this length.

• 

NOTE:- If the cable required is very long it may not be available 
in a standard length. If so, a good audio shop should be able 
to make a phono cable of a custom length.

Disconnect  the  Soundbar  and  the  subwoofer  from  the 

• 

mains power.
Connect the phono cable from the SUBWOOFER jack on 

• 

the Soundbar to the Subwoofer input.

Re-connect the power.

• 

Play some music or a movie with good bass content. 

• 

Set  the  controls  on  the  subwoofer  for  the  best  sound 

• 

balance.
