Re: rca rt2500 rec

I'd suspect your power supply capacitors are on their last leg. replace them.  - This was posted by videoguy1742. :   this problem is CURED simply by replacing 2 capacitors inside on the main board. They are easily identified by a bulge on the top end of the capacitors. The capacitors are located between the heat sinks. The size is 6800uf/16v.
I am a RadioShack dealer and sold a few of these in 2000/2001. I bought one for myself. I have repaired only 2 that had the same problem as listed by HAGUC above. They both are working great and for the record. . .are NOT peices of JUNK,. . .hehe. . .they just need a little TLC. Parts available from larger electronics parts houses, not at RadioShack

Can i hook up two 3 ohm subwoofers to the rt2500

Using 2 3ohm speakers in parallel is not advisable on this amp. 1.5ohms is too much of a load on the final. Use the speakers in series if your going to. (+) sp (-)(+) sp (-)

Sounds like the it is overheating do to poor ventalation and or there is speaker wires that maybe crossed and or shorting and causing the unit to do this. If everything is fine, then the amp is weakend from old age and wont make it much longer.

I have the RCA RT2500 model and I am looking for directions to connect tv, DVD, gaming, Cable Box, etc are there anywhere on line I can find it? thank you

the back should have a squared in box around the inputs like dvd vcr sat tv cd, dvd and sat have svideo and component a/v plugs, the vcr just has component rca a/v ports, tv and cd are just for audio, then you also have the option to hook up optical for dvd and sat. just plug your vcr into the vcr box and hook up svideo or the yellow monitor out plug to your tv, hook in the speakers and turn that baby up.

RCA rt2500 "CHK SPKR" comes on when i turn it on.

"CHK SPKR" Check Speakers. Remove all speaker wires and turn on receiver. If it still says check speakers, you have an amp that needs output transistors or possibly just soldering of an emitter resistor but thats rare.

Similar problem here, at first 20-30 min warm-up time, followed by irregularity in sound levels, to a complete failure after using for around 30 minutes after warm up (choppy sound to a steady buzz). I wonder if over heating has something to do with it since I left it on all the time after the need of a warm-up occurred. One night, a horrid buzz came from the system and ever since it would become unbearable to listen too after a few minutes, I am debating either to attempt a fix or chunk it. I haven't tried the caps and fuses yet, but seeing your problem leads me to believe it is something more to the problem, and more likely a better investment would be an upgrade.

Maybe the speakers are no good. Have you tried hooking up a different set of speakers?
