    pg. 191 Dolby Prologic Surround Sound (certain models)


    Dolby Prologic Surround Sound


    Together with a center speaker mounted at the center of the dash, Dolby Prologic Surround Sound offers much clearer and more realistic sound.
    Through a connection to a special decoder (optional on certain models), as well as a center speaker (option), the normal left-right stereo channels are divided into left-center-right. In addition, "surround" sound can be created from the car's rear speakers.
    Most modern discs are recorded so that vocals are heard in the center foreground, while the orchestra is heard across the entire left-right range, as well as from behind.


    A- Engaging Surround Sound


    Press the 'MODE' button to engage the center speaker and the surround unit. The mode selected will be displayed.
    "3 CH" = center speaker also engaged.
    "Dolby Prologic" = Dolby Prologic engaged with surround effect from rear speakers*.

    First pull the button out and then turn it to adjust the volume of the center speaker.


    C - Surround effect volume control


    Press the button to expose it and turn it to adjust the volume level from the rear speakers (Dolby Prologic only).
