Question about Televison & Video
I have spent many hour and hours trying to inegrate my two channel system with my Yamaha RX Z9 receiver to form a 5.1 home theatre system. It is my goal to drive my front pair of B&W 802 speakers with my Classe CA 200 two channel amplifier and my Classe CP 35 preamplifier. I have two rear surround speakers, B&W 803, and a velodyne DD12 subwoofer. I have attempted to attach schematic diagram showing how the components are connected. However, I am not certain whether the image is attached. Accordingly, I will describe the system in detail assuming the image is not attached. You can reach me at JFUCHS@RDLKLAW.COM.
My Classe CA 200 amp has balanced connectors (XLR) to my pre-amp. My Classe CA 200 is connected to my B&W 802 speakers with bi-wired cables. What I mean by bi-wiring is that each cable has a single spade connector at the amp end but two spade connectors at the speaker end. One cable carries both (+) leads and the other cable carries both (-) leads.
I have also bi-wired my two rear surround speakers to the L and R Surround jacks on the back of the Yamaha receiver.
My center channel is bi-wired to my Yamaha to the Center jack.
I have connected my subwoofer to the Yamaha through a single coaxial cable to the subwoofer L jack.
Now for the tricky part. In accordance with page 27 of the Yamaha Owner's Manual, I have connected using coaxial cables with RCA connectors the RCA Line Out jacks of my preamplifier with the Power Amp In jack of the Yamaha receiver. Also, according to the instruction manual on page 27 and 84, I set Speakers B to Zone B. With this configuration I selected the tuner as the source and played music. Sound came from from the center channel speaker and the L and R surround speakers but not from the two front speakers.
I contacted another owner of a Yamaha RX Z9 and he recommended splitting each of my interconnect cables from my pre-amp to the Yamaha receiver. I was not certain where to make the connections so I took the two cable ends from the red jacks on my pre-ampl out line to the red jacks of the Power Amp In jack and the adjacent (to the left) Out jack. Similarly, I connected the two white ends coming from my white colored jack from my preamp to the two white jacks of the Power Amp In and Out jacks.
Then I conducted an Autoset up. During the testing, test tones emitted from my center speaker, then my front left speaker, then my left surround and then my right surround. No sound emitted from my right front speaker. After completing the Auto Set up procedure I attempted to play music using the Tuner as the source. Again, no music came from either of my front two speakers.
I hope you can help me. Please feel free to contact me at my email address above. If you do not receive the .tif image I attempted to attach I would be happy to forward it to an email address you provide.
I will look forward to hearing from you.
The A-B speaker switch is intended to direct amplifier output to a pair of speakers in a different location when set to B.

The orange jack is a DIGITAL audio out and cannot be hooked to anything other than a digital input. You want to use the White/Red jacks at the bottom.

SOURCE: 4 ohm and 8 ohm speakers
You can plug in higher ohm speakers , the higher the ohm the higher the resistance is, it is a danger when you plug lower ohm speakers into a higer ohm Amp , at a high volume that will cause them to blow , the center speaker would be fine to use a higer ohm speaker , your best choice is to buy a Active Subwoofer, which means the sub has it's own power supply , and u can blast the thing as much as u like , thn u can turn the bass down on all the other speaker's so u can play it louder , and have the sub turned up has high as u like , this is the best way to get great sound with high volume , buy a Active sub woofer , any active subwoofer is ok , a active sub woofer has its own volume and inputs on the speaker ,

Plug the TV to an open channel on your receiver via this output:
*Rear, 1 x Digital audio output (coaxial) ( TOSLINK )
This will look like a single RCA output plug.
Set that input channel on your receiver to some sort of virtual surround mode because it doesn't look like your HDTV has a decoder in it (meaning it will come out stereo and the receiver will have to fake it).
Turn the volume all the way down on the TV and use the receiver to control TV volume just as you do with DVDs.
*Substitute this with the digital audio output on your set top box if you are sending video only to the TV from the set top box (component, DVI or s-video connections). So video goes to the TV, audio to the receiver.

your going to need this place to download the remedy's for your system http://www.euras.com/repair_tips_1/CARVER/AV505/AV505_CARVER.htm
if it is not working then there is another serious problem , and it could be the amp IC or the volume IC but tests will need to be done to determine what is causing the failure , but it does sound like amp IC as a suspect since the rear were not even working , did the volume seem different when turning it up or down before the center quit or after the center quit?
