Your problem is VERY common. It's defective, get a replacement.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not bad for price $70+$30 S&H, October 20, 2003 By A Customer
This review is from: KLH DVZ-2500 DVD Home Theater System (Electronics) I read alot of the recent reviews before purchasing this system. I wasn't going to buy it because of the volume problem (too loud) but some people said that this could be lowered in the 'audio properties > dynamics' setting.
Sure enough, there is a setting, but it does NOT lower the volume level at all. So, I rang the toll free 888 number and this audio level problem is a defect. However, the dynamic setting is purely to make some sounds softer, not to lower volume. I was told to get a replacement. The replacement is the exact same way ... defective. Buy this system if you only want to hear _DVDs_ with all speakers, because there are no inputs. And the radio, CD is at best stereo,
AND
if you don't mind the fact that it will be too loud, if at any stage you want a normal listening level. I gave 2 stars because I was able to watch a DVD ok with volume level one.

Klh powered subwoofer model ASW10-120B... when you plug in to power... it makes a loud buzzing/humming noise


I would check the caps on the power supply. They are rather large electrolytic capacitors that will look like they burst and/or leaking. When these die, the caps ground and the sub will make a loud buzzing sound. If you are handy with a soldering iron you can replace them yourself. Replace them with the same voltage or a little bigger and same with the size.

If the cap. says 16v 4700pF on it, for example, a 20v 5300pF or a 16v 6200mF cap. will work for this application.

Can I hookup a Sony receiver STR-DE505 to a Bassbite 2 KLH Audio system and how??


Yes.

It's frustrating that KLH manuals seem impossible to find anywhere online BUT a simple picture will suffice...

Go here and supersize the picture of the rear of the sub...

http://cgi.ebay.com/KLH-Audio-Systems-Bassbite-V-Model-E214708-Speaker-/110673631693

Run your front channel speaker wires to the CLEARLY-MARKED connectors on the sub and daisy-chain your front speakers to the CLEARLY-MARKED connectors on the sub.

Adjust the sub volume to match the front speakers levels. This will give you local volume control at the Sony.

Thanks for the response, but this didnt work. Any other suggestions?? I need to adjust the volume control to a lower setting. The way it is now is too loud on setting 1 to hold a conversation in the car....


Bose systems were not created with aftermarket head units in mind. Normally people perform a Bose-ectomy on those systems, removing ALL Bose components meaning Speakers too. Personally I prefer Pioneer, JBL, or Alpine speakers.

I have a KLH ASW10-125C Subwoofer and a Harman Kardon AVR 3600 receiver. What should the setting be for volume, phase and crossover frequency?


Home Theater

volume - personal taste - usually just high enough that you notice the bass - try turning down until you don't notice it then turn up one notch in the switch

phase - depends on distance from other speakers - try initially setting to 0 degrees

cross-over frequency - depends on your other speakers - try setting at 60-100Hz

I have a KLH 700watt home theater reciever that wont stay on!!


Sounds like it is overheating. Try one or all of the following:

Remove anything that may be stored on top of it. Unblock the vents.

Connect speakers with a higher sensitivity rating.

Move it to an area where it has more airflow around it, ie; not in a closet or cabinet.

Disable any bass-boost and equalization, or tone controls.

Set any crossover settings for any subwoofer you may have connected, to a higher frequency.

Decrease your listening volume.

2 12" dvc subs 2 ohm stable amp


+ on amp output to + on speaker #1 to + on speaker #2. - on amp output to - on speaker #1 to - on speaker #2. This is a parallel circuit....4 ohms in parallel with 4 ohms = 2 ohms. IF it were wired in series....would represent 8 ohm load.

Sony xplod 500w 4/3 channel


If the speaker is a 4 ohm DVC (two 4 ohm coils), you can't wire it to get a single 4 ohm load. Try connecting one coil to each of the two rear channels. It may not be as loud but the amp should operate without going into protection.

If the two 4 ohm coils are in parallel, the amp is driving a 2 ohm mono load. That's probably why it's shutting down.

KLH ASW10-120B subwoofer


I realize that this is an old problem, but folks are still finding it on searches, so here goes.

Here are the two pages of schematics from KLH. I wrote to their tech department and explicitly asked for permission to share them here.

Here's the lower board, which has the power supply:
