The power cord is for the speaker and not for the transmitter. I use AAA batteries for my transmitter and it worked just fine. Hope that helps.

Ii thought that too, but it doesn't go into the wireless part, it goes into the back of the speaker. turn it upside down and you will see it.

Pioneer VSX 1020K - Zone 2 Setup


I referred to a similar zone 2 arrangement for a Yamaha receiver. It shows a separate amplifier and notes that only analog signals are sent to zone 2. The analog output from a source must be connected to the analog input on your Pioneer unit for zone 2 to work. Your outdoor music environment will be limited to left and right front speakers and...alas...no surround

My remote speaker system works with the batteries but not with the AC adaptor plugged in to the speaker.


I would suggest to check AC outlet first where adaptor is pluged in,if Ok measure output voltage from adaptor to see if there is any (using any voltage multimeter with AC/DC)
Check label on adaptor shold be writen AC or DC output ,and value 3V,6,9,12,24,48 etc...
If adaptor is ok then problem is power jack mounted in to the speaker (cold solder joints' or damage)

We have a Pioneer VSX-9110 TXV and am absolutely happy with this unit. In addition to the family room surround speakers we have 2 outdoor speakers which are used in the "Room 2" setting. We had...


You might be able to find a really good deal on a signal amplifier through a big corporate music store. They tend to have a lot of selection and great information about the power needs of your system and all that. If you have a lot of cable to go through to get to your speakers (since they are outside) you will probably be able to find an amp that will last longer and transfer a better signal at someplace like Musician's Workshop" or "Guitar Studio" or another major outlet ... plus they have killer sales several times per year. Just make sure you let them know that you are looking for a "RACK MOUNTABLE SIGNAL AMPLIFIER" not just an amp, since if you just ask for an amp they will take you over to the amp/speaker combinations that people hook into an electric guitar.
If you are looking to keep your system entirely in the "home electronics" market, you could try Best Buy. The reason I am not giving any specific suggestions about what type of amp to buy is that your needs (distance of speakers from source, price, other features, etc.) for your specific setup are the main factor in the purchase. Depending on what secondary features you are looking for (Equalizer, subwoofer pre-outs, multiple room usability, future upgrade-ability etc.) and your price range, there is a WIDE array of options available. I recommend that you take some measurements to a few stores and ask specific questions:
1. Measure: Distance to indoor speakers, distance to outdoor speakers, preferable size of component (so you can fit it with the rest of your system) 2. Questions: Is the distance between the stereo base and components enough to merit a line amplifier between the stereo and the outdoor speakers? If you were to add the line amp, how much would it cost, and what is the risk to the component if you do not have one? Will the cooling requirements of the amp make it difficult to put it with the rest of your equipment? Are there any warranties on the component? Should you get an amplifier that will cover all of the speakers, so you can avoid burning out your receiver if you want all of the speakers running at once? Which brand that has all of the options you are looking for is the most reliable (according to customer feedback).?
Phillips, Sony and Magnavox all make relatively inexpensive receivers that can be found at any electronics store ... but their durability over time is proportionate to their price. Fender, Marshall and Peavy all make really good and durable signal amplifiers for musicians, but they might not be able to handle the distances between the stereo components and the outdoor speakers .. but if they can cover the distance, they will last a LOT longer than the home electronics at a comparable price since they are designed to be used as part of a career, rather than as part of your leisure time.

Does the harmon kardon avr45 have the capacity to hookup outdoor speakers


If you mean can it attach and operate outdoor speakers IN ADDITION TO the indoor speakers, no.

You could try running a second set of Front speakers from the same terminals as the main ones but you risk running with too low an imedance and you won't have separate control of them for on/off or volume; and they'll only reproduce the front L and R of a multichannel source.

You'd be better off getting a separate amp for the outdoor speakers and extracting the source from the H-K Tape Out or Vidoe 1 Rec Out jacks (but don't activate the switches that would monitor them in the H-K.

Can't figure out where to plug in the transmitter


if the unit your tring to connect has RCA style plugs you can plug them in to the tape REC out connections on the back of the reciever.
Once you turn the reciever on an select your source it will out put on the tape REC out which in turn sends signal to the wireless device.
if the unit your tring to connect has a 1/8" or 1/4" plug you have to convert to RCA or plug into the 1/4" headphone conncetion on the front of the unit

All I want to do is run an extra set of speakers for outdoor use. I want to be able to listen to the same music indoors and out. Is this possible without separate amp?


Yes definatly. The speakers farthest away will be a little quiter but will still be plenty loud enough to hear and enjoy.

Mismatch of stereo receiver outlet to connector wire.


There are adapters available at Radio Shack for connecting almost anything to anything.

Not knowing which connectors you have, I can't tell you what to get, but if you take what you can with you and explain the rest, they should be able to give you the correct adapter.

We have the sharper image wireless indoor outdoor speaker and when we plug everything in there is nothing coming out of the speaker. Are we able to get it to pick up satellite radio?


The wireless speakers do not pick up a wireless signal outside of the round wireless broadcaster that came with the speakers. You will need to connect that to your satellie radio to broadcast to the wireless speakers. Make sure the wireless broadcaster component is plugged into the sound source you want to make wireless. After you've connected the broadcaster to the sound source and turned everything on then push the Auto tune button to connect to the broadcaster and recieve the sound.
