SOURCE: Sound from 3 channels only

Hi, first of all did you verify with the manual if it is possible to run a testsignal through all 5 channels?
One of the most common problems in this case is the basic settings of the device. If you don't have the manual, mostly you can download them from manufacturers website. Chances are that for some reason the setting is set 3.0 stereo (also known as 3channel sound) which is always the 2 fronts and the centre speaker.

Best thing to do it is take a DVD with THX on it and run the THX setup, it will send test signal to all channels.

SOURCE: i have the philips hts3440/37 none of the speakers work.

Doubtful that it is as serious as a fuse, unless it was working before and now it's not.

Are you getting no sound when watching DVD's? Try adjusting the volume on the home theater system - press the SURR button until it says "Dolby" or something like that.

Make sure it is connected like this:

Please check if the AC cord of Acoustimass module has a good connection to AC outlet, also check all the connections specially the cable that goes to the system control unit jack, for your reference in the link below you can see and download the manual of your Bose system:

I have a Th-C50 home theater and lost my subwoofer system cord, can I use a regular s-cord to make that connection? or is it useless with out the cord?? Please help!


Hi,

Yes you can use any 2-core cable to carry the bass signal to the subwoofer. As the bass speaker cone is the largest cone in your speaker set I would recommend a good quality cable of decent gauge (thickness) to carry the bass signal.

You just need to make sure you have the right connectors for the amp and sub and make sure you connect positive to positive and negative to negative.

Hope this helps,

Chris

I have a subwoofer with standard speaker wire connection, how to I attach to a receiver with a subwoofer cable?


The Subwoofer is Likely Passive....meaning no amplifier is within the enclosure itself....the incompatible connectors mean you cannot connect the subwoofer itself to your surround sound system.

look for a Suitable stand-alone (1 Channel) Amplifer with sufficent power.....connect the RCA Imputs (subwoofer cable) to the Recievers RCA subwoofer output....then connect the amplifier's output to the the wire going into the subwoofer enclosure....if there is a plastic connector simply cut it off and strip the wires down a sufficent lenght....then secure the wires to the output of the amplifier.

if you do this make sure you know the ohm rating of the subwoofer and the minimum ohm rating of the amplifier your using.

Broken bass unit


(Please read the whole thing before opening anything)
Loose connections inside either the receiver or the subwoofer. Open the subwoofer case (the screen should pop off, if there is no screen there is usually some hidden screws somewhere) and see if there are any wires that have been separated. The problem with subwoofers (more common in car audio) is that they will vibrate so much that when you have something meant to have a lot of bass without the subwoofer and then you add the subwoofer to it, it's overpowering it which causes it to vibrate harder; seperating the cord that attaches the fabric of the speaker itself to the metal harness.
You can do one of 2 things:
1) Souder the wires back together using a heat sink.
2) Get allagator clips, cut them down pretty short and just extend the length of the wires a little bit giving it more bouncing room. Caution with this because if you dont cover the clips and they touch the metal frame, you will have no sound. Electric tape them once they're on.
If nothing is seperated, check the input jacks from the speaker box frame to the speaker itself. Loose connections are common for the crimp on kind.
Also a good idea: if you really (I mean really) want bass and you have no neighbors within a 1/4 mile radius of your house, have a friend who is getting rid of his car woofers to hook you up an AC outlet from the power source, and then use the red and white cables going into the amp to come from your receiver. I've seen this and it's great when watching a movie or playing games. Surrounding people hate it. (Wonder why?)

Subwoofer with speaker wire?


Back in the old days, subwoofers were powered by the voltage from your receiver, through speaker wire.
Nowadays, subwoofers have their own power, hence not having speaker wire connections anymore.
It's unlikely that you'll be able to connect your old subwoofer to your new receiver.
You'd need to get a new one, which if you don't mind buying closeout, can be found on eBay pretty cheap.

Speaker system


This definately means that you have a positve and negative speaker wire touching somewhere. First thing to do would be to check all connections at the speakers and on back of receiver and make sure all wires are seperated. This is a common problem if two wires are touching each other. If you check all connections and they look ok and you still have same problem you need to start unhooking all wires and hook them up one at a time and turn on system. If it works with one speaker then try hooking up a second speaker wire and so on until it gives you protection message again. Basically process of elemenation. Once you says that protection message you need to replace the last wire you hook up all together as you could of damaged it when running speaker wire or it could be a defect in speaker wire.
