Maximize the Performance of your Surround Speakers and Subwoofers

While countless hours have been invested into meticulously fine-tuning DRAGON to achieve the best sound quality, the actual listening experience may vary depending on the acoustics of your room environment and speaker placements. Here are some tips:


Maximizing Performance of Surround Speakers:

  1. Ensure each speaker is placed either behind or beside your couch. Point the speaker towards your listening area.

  2. Rotate the PerfectHeight mechanism at the top of each surround speaker such that it directs height effects toward the center of your listening area.

  3. Ensure you receive multi-channel surround formats from your content (e.g. Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, Dolby Digital Plus, LPCM 7.1 / 5.1, etc.). Visit our device settings page to apply the best audio settings for your TVs and content devices. 

  4. Verify that your content delivers multi-channel surround formats, such as Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby Atmos, etc. For Music/Stereo 2.0 content, select All Ch Stereo to upmix audio to both surround speakers.

  5. Optimize surround sound, height effects and bass output by using Room Size Calibration, which allows DRAGON to take into account your wall proximity, ceiling height and each speaker’s distance to the listening area.

  6. Optimize volume balance using Volume Level Calibration to increase/decrease rear surround speakers output. 


Maximizing Performance of Subwoofers:

  1. Ensure subwoofers are placed either at the front of the room or in between your TV and listening area.

  2. Adjust the bass output level and number of active subwoofer drivers via the OSD or remote control to suit your preference. 

  3. Set the subwoofer crossover frequency to your preference. 

  4. Use Room Size Calibration to input the location of subwoofers and respective distances to the listening area to optimize bass output to the room environment.
