SOURCE: Subwoofer Connection: Speaker wire to Mono RCA

The easiest solution to use your subwoofer is to buy an amp for it. Any old stereo receiver from a garage sale will probably do just fine.

  1. Connect the mono RCA subwoofer output from your Sony with a 1xRCA-to-2xRCA splitter to both the left and right input of the cheap reciever's tape or aux input
  2. connect both speaker outputs of the cheap reciever to the speaker input on your subwoofer. make sure both black (-) outputs on the reciever connect to the black input on the sub, and the red outputs (+) on the reciever are both connected to the red input on the subwoofer.
  3. make sure the cheap receiver's volume is all the way down. turn your Sony up to about the loudest you'll listen to it. turn up the subwoofer amp until it's loud enough to sound good.
  4. leave the subwoofer amp alone, the Sony volume will all you ever need to touch from now on.

You can even now turn off your subwoofer / adjust the volume easily now!

SOURCE: subwoofer.......

Please check your model number, I can not find it on the JVC service website.

This is a powered sub-woofer I think. You need to have a thick black cord that connects the sub to the head unit. Then the satellite speakers get connected to the speaker jacks on the sub-woofer box. The sub-woofer should also be plugged into an A/C outlet on the wall.

The speaker outputs are labeled right there where you connect the speaker wires. You should see a red and black connector for each speaker and they are labeled "front right" "front left" "center" "rear right" "rear left".

If you do not have the thick black cord you need to connect the head unit with the sub-woofer, you can not use this system.

If you look at the head unit and give me the model number on it, I may be able to find the part you need. But I must have a good model number to work with, preferably from the head unit.

Nice write-up.

http://www.sherwoodusa.com/pdf/RD-6500(English).pdf

On page 6 of the manual it states you should use a powered subwoofer and the unit provides a sub output on the rear panel for it. The message from the amp kicking out is that you're not going to get away with your workaround.

I would advise you to purchase a nice amplifier (2-channel bridgeable or single channel) for the subwoofer. That way you'd be sending only LFE signals and your receiver has provisions for adjusting its volume relative to the rest of the channels. I use a nice 5-channel Carver for my 3 subs and both Rear Surrounds.

On eBay I see what I would get if I were you - a Carver M-200T (120W x2; 300W bridged). I have one.

SOURCE: No sound output from Center and Surround speakers

the only time the center and surround speakers put out sound is when it has a surround sound source such as a dvd etc. and only certain sounds come from them as well.

Having a problem with my Thomson DPL 550HT home theater. When i try to play something the sound repeatedly goes off and on in about a one second interval.


I would have to guess that the internal power supply has one or more bad capacitors. Time to take into a technician for repairs.

I turn on home theater receiver and it says,"check sp wires",then it shuts off


You have some speaker wires crossed or shorted.
inspect the speaker wires for shorting (cat/dog /mouse chewed em up?).
You can also disconnect the speaker wires and plug them back in one at a time to locate the shorted one , should you be unable to determine which wire is shorted.

HOW CAN I CONECT THE BOSE TO MY YAMAHA AMP THE ONLY WAY TO CONECT THE BOSE IS TO BANANA INPUTS ON MY AMP AND THEY ARE FRONT SPEAKERS BUT THE AMP HAS A SUB OUTPUT


To enable the full potential of a SUB for Yamaha DSP A5 ,

you need to have

a separate amplifier for your Bose Acoustimass System.


The SUB out should be connected to an active subwoofer.

Distortion noise from the 5 speakers and a sub


rattling noise comes from your wiring color coding. make sure positive goes into positive, negative to negative. You may have connected the output into the output of the sub. and satellites are in the input.

Horizontal Output transistor


IGBTs do not work well at high frequencies. They are not very linear, either. Even if it works, you'll likely wind up with a compressed and distorted picture.

Just put in an equivalent output transistor and call it a day.

Sony Home Stereo Fuse


When the wires touched, the output transistors overloaded before the fuse had a chance to blow. The outputs need to be changed. It is possible that the driver stage for the final outputs is bad also, but there is no way to know that without removing the bad outputs. Figure on $25-$45 in parts for this repair.

Subwoofer to receiver hookup


In general, there are two ways to hook up your sub-woofer. First using the high level outputs from your receiver ( speaker output from the front R & L speaker terminals ) run a set of wires from the outputs to the speaker inputs on the sub-woofer, you do this in concert with the speaker wires going to the front R & L speakers which you then attach to the R & L speaker outputs on the sub woofer amp. Note that the sub woofer doesn't power your front speakers, the connections from the sub amp are just a pass through connection where the signal needed by the sub is parasitically taken from the inputs.
Second is via a low level output from your receiver / amp to the low level input on your sub amp. This is normally done via a RCA type of patch cable and connected to the sub woofer RCA jack on the rear of the source receiver or amp, Next run the patch cord to the sub amp an into the RCA jack input. IF you have a right and left input, use the Right input.

Error message


If the "check speaker" is always turning on, it is possible the amp itself is shorted at the IC. Replace AMP IC pack or if it has N and P channel output transistors acheck them. Some amps do use a thermister and this could be burned open in circuit.
