Tip & How-To about Audio Players & Recorders

The Best Place to Put Your Surround Sound Speakers

If you can’t feel the vibrations everywhere—in your cheeks, ears, toes—you’re not getting the most from your surround sound system. One easy way to improve surround sound quality is to focus on speaker placement. Crutchfieldadvisor.com has a detailed tutorial, offering such tips as:

  • Place your center channel speaker directly above your TV—centered if possible. Align the front edge with the front edge of your TV screen to reduce distortion caused by sound reflecting and diffracting off the TV’s cabinet.
  • Position your front left and right speakers in front, and at equidistant points to the left and right, of your primary listening spot. Your front speakers should be at a 22°–30° angle with respect to your television.
  • The tweeters should be at ear level when you’re seated.
  • Position surround sound speakers so that they’re ear-level when you’re standing.

please, what does the word "haptic" mean ?


Haptics is any form of nonverbal communication involving touch
Haptic customs differ greatly throughout the world. In many Spanish-speaking countries of Latin America, people greet each other with one kiss on the cheek, for example in Argentina. In Spain, people greet each other with two kisses on the cheek. In Colombia, shaking hands or verbal greeting is common and probably without hugging. In Peru, when men greet one another, they usually do so shaking hands or with a verbal greeting, otherwise, whenever a woman is involved, greeting involves kissing on the cheek or verbal greeting. In Brazil, kisses when greeting women can vary from one to three, and be fake (kissing the air) or on the cheek; men can salute by shaking hands or demonstrate comraderie by slapping one another's shoulders or backs.[citation needed]
In the United States, the main form of greeting is shaking hands, though when greeting friends it is not uncommon for them to hug.[citation needed]
Every culture has a different perception of touch as communication.[1][unreliable source

I have a Panasonic HT-692 surround sound system. Any time I use the surround sound features and turn the volume to a higher level(not ear piercing mind you) the system cuts off as if a ckt breaker has


If you are playing the unit that loud, for an extended time it sounds like the unit is going into overload, meaning it's getting to hot. Try turning the volume down to 1/2 of your current level. If it stays running, you will have to cut back on your volume, before you seriously damage the unit(or your hearing)

how to connect my JVC Audio/video control receiver digital surround sound system


Hi,
Need to know how to set up a surround sound system? It's fairly easy, with the right equipment. Surround sound gives you that "theater" feel in your own home.
For more information on optimizing the sound of your chosen system visit:

Additionally,Some people prefers a wire diagram to connect their surround sound system. The basic concept to connect any audio system is to follow the path of sound from its origin to its final output stage, either headphones or speakers. There are other basic premises to follow, such as the impedance of the speakers and the output of the amplifier, but the concept is to start with an input and terminate each input to an output somewhere on the amplifier unit.
A wire diagram shows a picture that represents where each of these wires would go in considerably little detail. One example would be that a television set starts with a signal from somewhere, broadcast or cable, and comes out of that antenna and goes into the surround sound amplifier. The sound is processed in some way and the video is output to the television set and the audio is output to the speakers or headphones. Although complicated in textual from, most find that a wire diagram is much easier to follow.

My speakers vibrate, like if you had a moth fluttering around inside your ear drums. I cannot stand having the speakers left on when there is no sound. I have tried adjusting the cables, lowering the bass on the woofer and through control panel. Any ideas greatly appreciated!


Speakers have a kind of cardboard like membrane that the wires attach too and a magnet that are used to create sound. The cardboard like membrane can become worn, brittle or might be defective when you got them but if it breaks loose from the magnet or the surrounding frame that it is attached to it can vibrate very easily and create unwanted sounds. There is really no way to repair this that I know of. To make sure you might try the speakers with some other kind of system or computer but I think they're probably broken and might need to be replaced.
