24 SYSTEM CONFIGURATION

default setting of

GLOBAL

will be appropriate,

Harman Kardon Avr 156 User Manual

as most listeners do not need to have
individualized speaker settings. However, some
listeners, particularly those with full-range front
speakers that are used for both movies and music
may prefer that different speaker settings be used
when listening to music through a CD player as
opposed to a movie from a DVD player, VCR or
cable/satellite set top.

If you wish to customize the speaker size individ-
ually to each input, make certain that the cursor
is on the

BASS MGR

line and press the

/

Buttons

Ea so that

INDEPENDENT

appears in highlighted video. When this setting is
entered all speaker size settings will be shown
with their factory default size in the menu and all
other inputs will turn to

INDEPENDENT

too.

Now you should enter the speaker size settings
preferred for the input selected, as described
below. Remember that in this case the size
settings just entered will apply to the current
input ONLY, and you will need to go back to the

INPUT

menu to select another input, and then

return to this menu page again to change the
settings for the next input. Repeat the procedure
for any input where you wish to have a set of
speaker configuration different from the default
settings.

NOTE: When the

INDEPENDENT

setting is

activated, you may assign different speaker size
settings to each input to accommodate different
bass management settings that match your
preferences with the type of program material
normally used with a particular source (for
example, when movies are played from DVD and
music from a CD player). However, the actual
speaker crossover settings are set only once and
do not change with the input selection. The
reason is that, while bass management
preferences may vary, the actual speakers remain
the same, regardless of the bass-management
and redirection settings.

2. Begin the speaker size setup process by making
certain that the cursor is pointing toward the

LEFT/RIGHT

line, which sets the configura-

tion for the front left and right speakers. If you
wish to make a change to the front speakers’
configuration, press the

/

Buttons

Ea so

that either

LARGE

or

SMALL

appears, match-

ing the appropriate description from the definitions
shown above.

When

SMALL

is selected, low- frequency front

channel sounds will be sent only to the subwoofer
output. If you choose this option and there is no
subwoofer connected, you will not hear any low-
frequency sounds with front channel signals.

When

LARGE

is selected, a full-range output will

be sent to the front left and front right outputs.
Depending on the choice made in the

SUBWOOFER

line in this menu (see below), the

front left and right bass information may also be
directed to the subwoofer.

NOTE: When the front speakers are set to the

LARGE

option and the surround mode is set to

'Surround Off', or pure two-channel stereo,
when an analog signal source is present it will be
routed directly from the input to the volume
control without being digitized or processed. If
you have full-range front speakers and wish to
remove all digital processing from the circuit
path, select this configuration. If you wish to set
this option for use with only one input, such as a
CD player that uses an external DAC or an
optional, external phono preamp, you must
choose the

INDEPENDENT

setting on the

BASS MGR

line at the bottom of this menu so

that only those inputs where the analog bypass is
desired will be routed in this fashion, while other
analog inputs such as a VCR or cable box will be
digitized for surround processing.

Important Note: When a speaker set with a
subwoofer and two front satellites connected to
the Sub´s speaker outputs is used, the Sub´s
inputs must be connected to the Front speaker
outputs

D and

LARGE

must be selected for

the front speakers (and

NONE

for the subwoofer,

see below).

3. When you have completed your selection for the
front channel, press the

¤

Button

D on the

remote to move the cursor to

CENTER

.

4. Press the

/

Buttons

Ea on the remote

to select the option that best describes your center
speaker, based on the speaker definitions shown
below.

When

SMALL

is selected, low-frequency center

channel sounds will be sent to the Fronts, if they
are set to

LARGE

and Sub is turned off (see be -

low). When Sub is on, low frequency center
channel sounds will be sent to the subwoofer
only.

When

LARGE

is selected, a full-range output

will be sent to the center speaker output, and NO
center channel signal will be sent to the sub-
woofer output (except when the Pro Logic II
Music mode is in use).

NOTE: If you choose Logic 7 as the surround
mode for the particular input source for which
you are configuring your speakers, the AVR will
not make the LARGE option available for the
center speaker. This is due to the requirements of
Logic 7 processing, and does not indicate a
problem with your receiver.

When

NONE

is selected, no signals will be sent

to the center-channel output. The receiver will
operate in a “phantom” center channel mode.
Center-channel information will be sent to the
left and right front channel outputs and the cen-
ter channel bass will be sent to the subwoofer
output when

L/R+LFE

is selected in the

SUBWOOFER

line in this menu (see below).

This mode is needed if no Center speaker is used.
Note that when the Logic 7 Cinema or Enhanced
surround modes are selected a Center speaker
must be used, the Logic 7 Music mode works well
without a Center too.

5. When you have completed your selection for
the center channel, press the

¤

Button

D

on the remote to move the cursor to

SURROUND

.

6. Press the

/

Buttons

Ea on the remote

to select the option that best describes the sur-
round speakers in your system based on the speak-
er definitions shown on page 23.

When

SMALL

is selected, with all digital sur-

round modes low-frequency surround channel
sounds will be sent to the Fronts when Sub is
turned off or to the subwoofer output when Sub
is on. With any analog surround mode the rear
bass feed depends on the mode selected and the
setting of the Sub and front speakers.

When

LARGE

is selected, a full-range output

will be sent to the surround channel outputs (with
all analog and digital surround modes), and
except with Hall and Theater modes, NO surround
channel bass will be sent to the subwoofer out-
put.

When

NONE

is selected, surround-sound infor-

mation will be split between the front left and
front right outputs. For optimal performance
when no surround speakers are in use, the
Dolby 3 Stereo mode should be used.
