Installation The orientation of the sound bar and the appropriate remote control sensor depend on the installation location.

Installing the sound bar on a TV cabinet, etc. 1 Slide the installation position selector switch on

the bottom panel of the sound bar to the T (for Tabletop) side (T, by default). The sound quality appropriate to the installation will be set.

2 Place the sound bar on a TV cabinet, etc., so that the keys are facing the wall.

Attaching the sound bar to a wall 1 Slide the installation position selector switch on

the bottom panel of the sound bar to the W (for Wall mount) side. The sound quality appropriate to the installation will be set.

2 Following How to install on the wall below, install the sound bar so that the keys face upwards.

How to install on the wall

1 Attach the mounting template on a wall and mark for the screw holes.

2 Remove the mounting template from the wall, then install commercially available screws (as illustrated below) at the points marked on the wall.

3 Peel off the backing paper from the spacers and attach the adhesive face to the sound bar as illustrated below.

4 Hang the sound bar on the screws.

Cautions Do not stack the sound bar and a BD player or other device

directly on each other. Doing so may cause a malfunction due to vibrations.

Do not hold the speaker portion (fabric parts) on the front and the top of the sound bar.

The sound bar contains non-magnetic shielding speakers. Do not place magnetically sensitive items (hard disk drive, etc.) near the sound bar.

Depending on your installation environment, it may be better to connect the sound bar and external devices (such as a TV) before installing the sound bar.

Do not place the sound bar within 50 mm (2") of the TV.

Installation position selector switch (bottom panel)

Remote control sensor (front panel)

Cautions When installing the sound bar on a wall, all installation work must

be performed by a qualified contractor or dealer. The customer must never attempt to perform this installation work. Improper or inadequate installation could cause the sound bar to fall, resulting in personal injury.

To avoid falling the sound bar, attach the sound bar to a dry wall. Make sure you use commercially available screws that can

support the weight of the installation (specified in Step 2 on the right). Using clamps other than specified screws, such as short screws, nails, and two-sided tape, may cause the sound bar to fall.

Listening to the sound from a Bluetooth device You can play back wirelessly from Bluetooth devices, such as a smartphone or digital music player. See also the operating manual of the Bluetooth device for more details.

Pairing a Bluetooth device with the sound bar When connecting to a Bluetooth device for the first time, pairing between the device and sound bar is required. Pairing is necessary for each Bluetooth device you use. Once pairing with a device is completed, subsequent connection with that device will not require pairing.

1 Press the BLUETOOTH key on the sound bars remote control to select Bluetooth as the input source. The BLUETOOTH indicator on the top panel flashes.

2 Turn on the Bluetooth function of the device to be paired, and perform pairing. The operation varies depending on the device. Refer to the operation manual of the device.

3 Select ATS-1050 Yamaha in the Bluetooth device list on the device. If a passkey (PIN) is required, enter the number 0000.

When pairing is completed, or a completion message appears on the device.

NOTE Perform pairing with the Bluetooth device and sound bar within 10 meters (33 ft) of each other. Up to eight Bluetooth devices can be paired with the sound bar. If a ninth device is paired, pairing data for

the device with the oldest connection date will be deleted. If pairing information for a device is deleted, to use that device again, pairing of the device is required

again. If a Bluetooth device is already connected to the sound bar, terminate that Bluetooth connection (p.11),

then perform pairing with the new device. Refer to Bluetooth (p.18) in Troubleshooting if pairing cannot be achieved.

Perform the following steps to use a Bluetooth device with the sound bar.

connection problem occurs. You may have to change the output setting to output audio to the sound bar, depending on the Bluetooth device you are using.

Adjust the volume level of the Bluetooth device as required. If a Bluetooth device is already connected to the sound bar, terminate that Bluetooth connection, then

connect with the new device.

Terminating Bluetooth connection Bluetooth connection is terminated in the following cases. When the Bluetooth connection is terminated with the sound bar turned on, the BLUETOOTH indicator changes from the lit status to the flashing status and the sound bar enters the connection wait status. The Bluetooth function is turned off on the compatible device. The BLUETOOTH key on the sound bars remote control is pressed for more

than 3 seconds. The sound bar is turned off.

operations for 20 minutes when BLUETOOTH is selected as the input source.

Turn on the sound bar again. To stop the sound bar from turning off automatically, disable the auto power standby function (p.15).

The protection circuitry has been activated. (The D indicator on the top panel of the sound bar flashes.)

After confirming that all connections are made properly, turn on the sound bar again. If the power still turns off suddenly or cannot be turned on, unplug the power cable from the AC wall outlet and contact the nearest authorized Yamaha dealer or service center.

Bluetooth Bluetooth is a technology for wireless communication employing the 2.4 GHz

frequency band, a band which can be used without a license.

Handling Bluetooth communications The 2.4 GHz band used by Bluetooth compatible devices is a radio band shared by

many types of equipment. While Bluetooth compatible devices use a technology minimizing the influence of other components using the same radio band, such influence may reduce the speed or distance of communications and in some cases interrupt communications.

The speed of signal transfer and the distance at which communications is possible differs according to the distance between the communicating devices, the presence of obstacles, radio wave conditions and type of equipment.

Yamaha does not guarantee all wireless connections between the sound bar and devices compatible with Bluetooth fun
