    your amp puts out 7.1 ( 7 speakers plus subwoofer)



    your hbx1 is only 5.1 (5 speakers plus a sub)



    you need a rca y adaptor to run your subwoofer ie two plugs into 1 plug



    Not ver artistic but does this help you?

  • Soulvisitor

How do I connect my hct HSP 501 subwoofer to tv


The cheapest way of connecting your flat screen and speakers is to use the TV's headphone jack. It's not the best quality, but a lead will cost a couple of Pounds/Dollars and it will do unless you want the sound really loud. This will connect to the HCT's stereo line in socket labelled "2CH Input".

24200ec8-8a1b-44d7-923d-797f2146302c.jpgI

don't know if you'll get sound out of all speakers or just the front two and sub though. That depends entirely if the HCT is smart enough to make a stereo signal play all round.

Be aware; some TVs have a separate volume control for the headphone level. It's buried in the menus.

If you want the best quality, or there's no headphone jack on your TV, then the answer is to use the TV's Optical output. This sends a signal in digital form as a series of light pulses. This isn't directly compatible with the stereo input of a speakers. There's no kind of cable or plug adapter you can buy that converts this just through a piece of wire. So you would buy an Optical to Stereo phono/RCA converter that can translate light pulses into a stereo signal. Here's a link to one from Amazon. It is less than 10 Pounds Sterling

You then need a couple of connecting cables: An optical lead from TV to the box, and the stereo phono lead.

When using Optical, the TV's volume control has no effect at all on the volume going out via the cable. You have to use the volume control on the speakers. Does the HCT have a volume control? If not, don't waste your time with them. Go buy a soundbar and use that instead.

Klh powered sub woofer


Low level inputs are designed to take signals directly from an amplifier's "sub out" connections. That way the KLH amplifier will use those signals to produce sound and the volume can be balanced between the main amplifier and the sub amplifier using the sub's volume controls. Depending on your amplifier and sub, that is the best way to connect them. However, be careful running the RCA cables since the low levels are more subject to interference. Keep the runs as short as possible and use high quality shielded cables for the interconnects.

Hello- I have my denon receiver connected to my tv with 2 front speaker,2 surround and center channel along with the sub. The problem is that when i play a blue ray, all my speakers produce sound including...


I need to know the quality of the speakers on the TV. Try unplugging it from the speakers on the TV and plug it into the souround sound speakers only and see if it plays differently. Double check your sourround sound and makes sure you did not reverse a wire.

Hi, My friend left me his Z-2300 sub but lost the speakers that go along with the system. What speakers are the best replacement for the sub? which dont involve me soldering any wires!


I don't know which would be best but my recommendation to you is go shop around on the internet or in stores and find some good quality 2.0 (2 speakers without a subwoofer) computer speakers. If the speakers don't already have RCA connections it is easy to find a 3.5mm to RCA cable connector. Let me know if you want me to clarify that....audio lingo is very confusing sometimes!

When I do a noise test I get no sound out of the woofer. I am getting no bass from the woofer


These are "decent" quality 5.1 speakers, usually without any trouble.

Now, to your question, you will not have 5.1 "surround sound" effect with standard sound card, standard sound card will provide only three speakers sound, rear speakers will not connect but bass should be hear. Please switvh power off to the speakers and disconnect all cables from spaekers and connect them for best quality as follows:

1. Audio from PC, orange, green and black connecting to front right speaker.
2. DB15 (D-SUB) connecting to subwoofer, subwoofer is serving as mixer, power board, amplifier and connection box, control pod is just cable connection to it
3. Connect all cables to they respective speakers

Establish location of the speakers, from experience, in ideal world:

1. Sub should be on about your knee level or below, about twice your hight from you.
2. Front centre speaker should be about some distance as sub or bit closer on front and slightly above your head.
3. Front left and right speakers should be at about 45degree from your axis, at distance of about 1.5 your hight and on the level of your head or slightly below.
4. Rear left and right speakers should be located similiary to front speakers, on they level or slightly above them, again, about 45degree from your axis.

Location of the speakers is more actually important than it is assumed, total sound immersion is not possible without proper speakers installation. Head in these instruction meant a location of your head while you are listening to your music or recording not while you are standing.

In reality... hang them higher than your head in four corners of your room, front centre higher than sides, woofer lower than sides and below front centre, if they interfere with each other - increase the distance. I hate reality...

After speakers are connected:
1. Plug power cord in,
2. Turn all sounds totally down, including subwoofer
3. Increase sound on PC to maximum, let play any known to you music, tufftuff or bach, whatever, do not bother with metallica as you cannot discredit on it correct levels.
4. Increase subwoofer volume, holding one hand on the front of the grill till you get some vibration from it
5. Increase sound on centre speaker, then on sides front speakers till you achieve equality of the sound
6. Decrease sound volume on your PC to about 60% - 70%
7. Increse subwoofer volume till you feel sound on your hand in front of the speaker.
8. Increase sound volume on front/rear speakers as required.

Hope that short intro solved all your speaker problems, enjoy! if you require any additional help, do not hesitate to answer to this post with request.

Amp playing speakers very quietly


it sounds like you have the polarity of the speakers hooked up wrong on one of them, try unhooking the new speakers you added and hook them back up one by one, when the music gets fuzzy then reverse the wires for that speaker, this should cure your problem.

Proper set up


Try to google the brand name and get the user's manual. Usually the extra cords plug into one of the other speakers and then one to the computer. Sound card could be an issue but I doubt it.

Connection to Laptop


Since the majority of laptops do not have multiple sound outputs you will need to buy a couple of headphone splitters. Plug the first Y splitter into the laptop headphone port and plug one of the input cables going to the speakers in one arm of the Y. Next, plug another Y splitter in the remaining arm of the first Y. This will provide you with the other two inputs that you need. Plug the remaining speaker cables into the other Y arms. From there it is simply controlling the speakers using the laptop volume and/or the speakers volume. You will not have fader control on a 3.1 or 5.1 speaker system but it will give you what you are looking for. I have this same configuration at my office using an IBM laptop and a 5.1 surround sound system. Good luck. JC
