TX-SR506 Bi-Amping

My rear speakers no longer work under the "Normal Setting", unless Bi-Amping is selected, which is fine unless I want to engage my Zone 2, which does not work simultanously with Bi-amping.

How do I get my rear surround speakers to work again on the "Normal" setting?

thanks for the guidance!

If you select bi-amping the device will use a second amp for your rear speakers, this indicates that in your setup menu you probably have deleted the rears (set to None). Try to find the settings for your rear speaker in your setupmenu and see if they are selected in normal operation.
If all fails, see if you can reset teh device back to factory settings, sometimes software can get confused after using for a while. Resetting should than fix most problems.

You can also check and see if there is maybe a software update available for your device, loading and installing is explained in either the file or on manufacturers site.

I have Xavian xn125 speakers. How do I connect them in a bi-wired or bi-amp


Bi-wiring basically works wtih one amp. You need a crossover network and a signal doubler to use two amps (bi-amping). There are many diffent ways to bi-amp (horizontal, vertical,...) This link: - -http://www.soundstage.com/synergize/synergize031998.htm-- explains them all. Bi amping is usually not worth the extra price and complexity when used on smaller speakers.

It can be possible to bi-amp a pair of Klipsch RB-81 with this receiver for stereo listening, and if yes, how...


Bi-amping indicated that you have two amps, one for the tweeters, adn another for the woofer, in a two way system. If you don't have two seperate amps, you can use the speaker A & B outputs to run seperate speaker llines to each set of speaker inputs, but that will not be true bi-amping. Another alternative is to use jumpers to connect the speaker inputs together, this not needing seperate amps. Here's a link to the owner's manual:

What is the best configuration for wiring the Tanny MX3 speakers? i note they can be split at the back??


In audio, beauty is in the ear of the beholder.

If you're NOT bi-amping or bi-wiring them, leave the jumpers on.

Unless you were already stating with junk for electronics there is not a lot of evidence that either of those schemes would result in anything audibly superior, but they WILL cost more due to the expense for extra amplifier channels and boutique speaker wire.

Google it.

How do i bi amp sx 1250 to get both channels of each side to work together


you are actually not bi-amping the unit, you are bridging the amp. this really only works as long as all channels produce equal power. next the bad news is that typically home stereo amps are not wired internally to bridge channels.

bi-amping a speaker refers to connecting on channel to the highs and on channel to the lows. the receiver would need to be be able to process the outputs via a crossover network to split the frequency range in half so the appropriate frequencies went to the correct speaker.
