SOURCE: pioneer sx-255r can i connect 6 - 8 ohms

Yes, you can use them but be careful. These are not necessarily robust speakers. If they sound strained, back off.

What is the impedance of the midrange speaker and the tweeter speaker in the Pioneer cs r5100 ? I have the crossovers and the woofers I use for my front channels (L&R)


If you are running three 8 ohm speakers in parallel then the total impedance would be 2.667. If running two 8 ohm and one 6 ohm speaker in parallel you would have 2.4 ohms. This will burn out your amp pretty quick. And very possible won't play at all. Though I have never attempted to play a home amp down that low in ohms. Guessing you may have an older model Denon type amp.

Is it totaly ok to just connect one pair of JBL Control 1 speakers to this receiver? Here are some of the specs. Frequency Response: 120 Hz to 20 kHz Power Capacity: 150 W Sensitivity 87 dB SPL Nominal...


The only relevant speaker spec is the impedance. As you probably realize the Pioneer SX-255R recommends 8 - 16 ohm speakers.

Four ohms is on the hairy edge of too low. You could certainly try it but if any strain or excessive volume is used you could see something go poof!

The low end of 120Hz says don't push the bass to them.

How do i hook up an antenna to the pioneer sx-950


There are two antenna sources on the Pioneer SX-950.

Both of these outputs are located on the rear panel of the receiver. The AM is a permanent mount. The FM is standard RF/Coax which will run to your antenna.

Antenna Inputs: FM 75 ohm, FM 300 ohm
Am Ferrite Bar Antenna

Hope this helps,

I would like to set up my old Pioneer PL-514 turntable and my Pioneer SX-550 sterio reciever to listen to some old LPs. I seem to have lost the instructions and connection diagrams. Could you please...

The upper link is for the turntable, the lower is for the receiver. they want you to create an account tu dowlnload so just create an account with them. In my expierience turntables had hook upeads out the back(wires connected) that would hook to phono in on receiver and speakers would hook to receiver via speaker wires(may not be included) by pos and neg. The speaker wire usually either has a rib or a line or writing on on leg so you can identify which wire you would want to be pos or neg.

Pioneer sx-205 gives a overload warning and cuts in and out when tuner or cd is playing


Does it play normal on any sources, or do you only have the tuner and CD for available sources?

There are many different things that can cause this type of problem.

It could be bad solder connections on in the amplifier circuit or power supply, it could be a bad speaker or a bad output channel inside the receiver if this happens only when it gets turned up loud.

The overload warning happens when the amplifier circuit has excessive current or DC voltage on the outputs. Unfortunately the only way to determain if it is the speakers is to change them with other known good speakers and see if it still happens. But before buying any speakers you need to have the receiver ruled out as the source of the problem.

It can also go into overload if you have the wrong type of speakers connected, or too many speakers connected. Each speaker jack should only have one speaker connected toit. If you are using for example, 4 speakers connected to the "A" speaker jacks meant for just 2 speakers, it will create a load to the amplifier that the amplifier is not rated for.
Look on the back of the receiver and it will have listed the proper impeadance for your receiver. Most will say:

8 ohms or more "A" or "B" speakers
16 ohms "A" and "B" speakers

That means you must use 8 ohm or higher ohm rated speakers if you are using only speakers"A" or only speakers "B", but can not use 8 ohm speakers if you are using speakers "A" and "B" at the same time. Then they must be 16 ohm speakers.

Two 8 ohm speakers in one speaker jack is a 4 ohm load, that is why you can not use more than 1 speaker per speaker jack.

I hope you found this information useful, and if I can be more help just let me know.

This is not a pioneer vsx-454 receiver problem


I would not recomend doing this because the 4 ohm speaker is not enough to offset the 32 ohm speaker and the amp will have problems keeping up with the power consumption of the speakers and will eventully overheat and cause damage! (it will work but not well and not without risk to your amp!)
Please rate this quick response
Thank
You!

SX-1600 + KD-491F


Appreciate the additional information.

To recap what you need is a receiver that can accommodate:
4 - Pioneer S-DF1-K (15-100W, 8 ohms)
1 - Pioneer PD-F407 25 Disc CD Player
1 - Pioneer CT-300 dual tape deck
1 - Kenwood KD-491F turntable

Possible choices are (keeping in mind that the power output should be less if not equal to 100 watts and a turntable/phono input):
i. Onkyo TX-8522 Stereo Receiver;
ii. Yamaha RX-397 100 Watt Natural Sound AM/FM Stereo Receiver;
iii. Sony STR DE695 AV receiver;
iv. Teac AG-790 200 Watt Stereo Receiver;
v. Denon AVR 888 - AV receiver - 7.1 channel.

Some of the above also includes feature(s) to hook up to your video system. Some may even require a fifth speaker (subwoofer).

Incidentally, you can also choose another brand/model even without a turntable/phono input. As initially posted, a turntable/phone to line level pre-amplifier is only required. Here are some examples:
a. XP200 Turntable Preamp - Nano Series;
b. Pyle® Pro PP999 Phono Preamplifier;
c. Pro-Ject Phono Box Turntable Preamplifier;
d. Radial J33 RIAA Turntable Preamp Direct Box

Good luck with your project.
