the stereo effect.

About Using Speakers Near a TV
This speaker include magnetic shielding and can therefore be
installed close to a TV set. Note, however, that placing the
speaker too close to a CRT type TV may in some cases pro-
duce distortion in the color reception. In such case, turn on the
TV and check that color reproduction is normal. If color is dis-
torted, turn the TV off for 15 to 30 minutes, then turn it back on
and check again. (This allows the TV's degaussing circuitry to
correct for the magnetic field from the speakers.) If distortion
is still present, move the speakers further from the TV.
Place the speakers on the floor or other horizontal stable
· Since a speaker is not fixed, be careful not to push down.
· Be careful not to hook a leg on a speaker wire.
