I would like to set up the EFFEKT loudspeakers for the first time?
Please click on the link > Detailed information on initial setup / commissioning.
Do EFFEKT speakers connect automatically after setup?
If the wireless speakers were already connected to a compatible transmitter, a connection with it will be established immediately. The LED operation indicator lights up permanently white.
The EFFEKT LED operation indicator flashes slowly or quickly in white. What does this mean?
The rear LED status indicator of the EFFEKT boxes can indicate the following situations:
- LED lights up permanently white: Wireless connection established, ready for operation.
- LED flashes slowly white: Connection has been established successfully, but at the moment no connection to the external player is possible (e.g., if external player is not ready for operation or possibly too far away).
- LED flashes fast white: Boxes are in pairing mode.
- LED is permanently red: EFFEKT are in standby mode.
In the settings of my sound system the menu for the surround speakers is missing?
The menu for the settings of the EFFEKT speakers is only displayed after successful pairing. Please follow the information in the article about the initial setup.
The EFFEKT speakers are connected, but the playback seems too quiet. What can I do?
NOTE: Do not adjust the volume using a movie you want to watch, because the volume of the playback can vary greatly depending on the movie scene. Instead, it is better to use the test tone. In addition, you can also use an app for sound measurement / level measurement (from the Play Store or the App Store). In general, we recommend that the level of the EFFEKT speakers is set about three to four decibels lower than the front speakers or soundbar.
How should I set the sound output of my TV / streaming provider to best benefit the EFFEKT speakers?
If possible, set the sound output of the TV / streaming provider to Dolby Digital, DTS, or PCM 5.1 sound formats. The frequently used preset sound formats Stereo or PCM 2.0 are less suitable, because the EFFEKT speakers either get no signal or only a weak signal (for example via Dolby Pro Logic 2).
I would also like to listen to music via my surround system with EFFEKT speakers. What is the best setting for this?
For music playback on the surround system with EFFEKT, use the option "Multichannel Stereo" via Menu Path > Sound > Advanced > Upmix > Direct.
There are connection problems. What can I do?
If the rear LED is blinking white slowly, the EFFEKT is still waiting to (re)connect to a known source device. Make sure that the source device is also operational. If this is the case, disconnect the EFFEKT and the source device from power for a short time and then start the source device first and then the EFFEKT. If this does not help, please perform a new setup.
