Question about Wave Audio CS801 Speaker

1 Answer

Home speakers I bought a house that has ceiling speakers in almost every room and speakers on the patio. There is a massive bunch of speaker wires that come out of the wall in the room that where all the central audio/video equipment is located...my problem is I have no idea which speaker wires are connected to the ceiling speakers throughtout the house. Besides going in the attic and yanking on the wires and having someone in the house tell me which wires are moving as I go to all the speaker locations in the attic, which seems ridiculous and still doesn't test the speakers to see if they are working. How do I do a simple test to the speakers to find out if they are working and where they are located?

1st of all i would take a multimeter and test each wire to make sure you have a connection after this i would use any amplifier connecting 2 speakers at a time locating each one and then label the cables then from there buy a suited amplifier for your needs and away you go

How do u connect the wireless speakers ?


Not much info here, Anon. So, I'll tell you what I know about wireless speakers generally. I have a Samsung home theater which has wireless surround speakers. However, "wireless" simply means they're not wired to the receiver. Wires are needed, however, to run from the surrounds to a unit (receiver is all it is) which must be plugged into a regular wall plug. This receiver picks up the surround signals from the theater and then transmits them to the speakers.

Presumably, you have this wireless receiver unit which matches your speakers. . . If not, it may be something you must buy separately. I don't know what type of electronic equipment you're talking about here, but what I just described is the norm for home theater. The only truly "wireless" speakers I know of are battery powered and are for patios, porches, decks, etc. so that you can listen to your music outside. They are tuned to a particular radio frequency - like a walkie talkie.

Can't get face plate off of MTX 610CM ceiling speakers


Its a pain, espicially if the grills were painted before installation.

In the industry we use a "grill puller" which is nothing more then a wire hook with a loop for your finger.

If the holes are big enough bend a paperclip into a hook, grab it with needle nose pliars and pull the grill through the hole near the edge.

If it doesn't fit then use a small pointed knife or awl, stick the point in a grill hole around the egde and pull it down a bit, work your way around until you can grab the grill with your fingers.

Let me know if you need anymore guidance......be careful I've replaced alot of destroyed speakers!

Cheers,

Kevin

I need replacement grills for 2 - 6.25" X 10.25" patio speakers that are mounted on the ceiling of my porch...the old ones have rusted


I happen to be in Riverview Fl about 1/2 hour north of you. I just called my local distributor and we would have to special order them. No big deal, it would just take 10 days. They are 40.00 a pair, and are now a composite material that won't "Brownout" on you. I e-mailed Fix Ya's support to get permission to give you my contact info. As soon as I hear from them, I will place another comment.

Connection between harmon receiver and A-bus in wall speakers...


There is a CAT5/RJ45 A-Bus interface on the back of the HK AVR 435. That needs to connect to your A-BUS "hub". HK has two hub products: ABH-4000 and ABH-4 (older). Then CAT5 cable can be run from this hub to Wall-installed room-specific controls. HK has the AB-2 product, but any ABus compatible wall control will work. From the wall control, you wire regular audio cable to the speakers. So, some of the questions/issues to solve are: where do the existing wires go that are connected to the in-wall speakers? Typically that location is where to place your in-wall volume and source controls. Then the CAT5 gets wired from those controls back to the hub. And all that's required is a single CAT5 from the AVR to the Hub.

There is most likelt a channel not working in either the receiver or amplifier depending upon what equipment you own. Could you update this with a list of the equipment in the system?

Cabling car speakers as home speakers (is it really that stupid?)


If you wire the speakers as a pair in parallel; (For two 4ohms car speakers) 1/R=1/4 + 1/4 1/R=2/4=1/2 R=2 ohms (the resistance value you'll get) (don't even think of trying it!) in serial; R=4+4 R=8 ohms (this mostly fits to home amplifiers, however, they provide 6ohms as well) I recommend that you use reasonable 8ohms speakers for the home theater amplifier you have. Despite the fact that the impedance value fits to 8ohms when you wire two car speakers as a pair in serial, this type of connection will tire your amp as well as the capacitors of the car speakers. Furthermore, you can get unwanted peak sounds from car speakers.
