Connecting the SB-1 to your TV » Back to top

Option 1:

The Popular Analog Connection

Make sure all components are off before starting the connections. Using the supplied stereo audio cable, connect the sound bar’s Line 1 (analog) input to your TV’s stereo audio output. If your TV has two sets of audio outputs labeled as Fixed and Variable, use the pair labeled Fixed. This will let you turn your TV’s speakers down while the TV still supplies a constant audio signal to the sound bar. Then, connect your source (Satellite, DVD, etc) using the remaining Optical input.

Option 2:

The One Wire Digital Connection

Make sure all components are off before starting the connections. If your TV has an Optical Out, and all your sources (blu-ray, satellite, game, etc.) are currently connected to the TV using digital cables (such as HDMI, Optical, or Digital Coaxial) then follow the simple guidelines below. You will need an optical cable, not included but available at your local Precision Acoustics dealer.

NOTE: If your DVD player, cable tuner or satellite tuner does not have a coaxial digital output, you can connect its analog audio output to your TV. The TV will send its audio signal to the sound bar through the analog connection described above.

Connecting the SB-1 to a Subwoofer - OPTIONAL » Back to top

The Cinema Sound Bar is equipped with a subwoofer output to allow the addition of an optional powered subwoofer. Adding a Precision Acoustics subwoofer will provide thunderous bass and greatly enhance the listening experience. Make sure all components are off before starting the connections. Connect a single RCA cable to the SUB OUT of the sound bar to the subwoofer/LFE input on the subwoofer. Turn up the volume on the subwoofer.

Power Connection of the SB-1 » Back to top

Once you have connected the sound bar to your TV and sources you can then connect it’s power cord. Connect the small, round connector to the back of the sound bar where DC21V is indicated. Then, insert the plug into an active, unswitched AC outlet. Do not plug this cord into the accessory outlets found on some audio components. You are now ready to turn on the sound bar, as well as all other components.

NOTE: Reversing the order of connection can cause a small spark. This is normal and harmless but should be avoided.
