Question about Bose Acoustimass 16 Speaker
I have a problem connecting Onkyo Amplifier (605)to Bose Accoustimass speaker system (16).
I get no sound from the speakers upto 50% of the volume. Only when I crank it up to around 80 level, I get some output.
I have gone through the manuals and think I have connected it right. Any solutions ?
This is probably correct as modern equipment uses electronic volume controls rather than potential dividers the range is normally biased towards the bottom end so there is lots of the range that is quiet and a smaller part that is loud.
Unless you find that at the top of the volume range the system does not seem to be loud then it is probably correct. It is not uncommon for modern equipment to clip at 80 / 90% of the volume range. Where as old style equipment with volume pots used to clip at arround 30% of the volume range as it gave the apperance there was loads of extra volume available. In fact all that happened if you turned it up louder was it clipped more and more.
