Question about Celestion AVF302 Main / Stereo Speaker

Open Question

Blown Speaker The two banana plugs at that connect to the speaker, were inadvertently bridged whilst the source was active. Have swapped the speakers ( L / R ) and the problem is surely the speaker. I am not sure if the units have an internal fuse. There was no unusual sound when the mishap took place. Would I have blown the drivers or the crossover ? Any assistance would be welcome. Thanks

SOURCE: pc connection

What you are proposing will not work.
You can EITHER use the Line inputs OR high level speaker inputs.

Using the line inputs, your L&R line level signals pass through the sub on their way to a stereo amp, then speakers.

Using the Speaker inputs, your L & R speaker cables connect from your amp (or PC speaker outputs) to the "Speaker input" terminals. The "Speaker output" terminals then connect to your speakers.

SOURCE: I have a Celestion CSW Sub woofer. It powers on as

This speaker has a low frequency roll-off filter. Does your program source have low enough frequencies to pass through the filter? The effect of the subwoofer on most music is very subtle unless there is heavy bass in the source. You should try some songs that have a heavy under beat.

How are you driving the CSW -- by way of the line input or as a series connection to your full range speakers?

Hello. i just bought denon poa2800. i usually use banana plugs for speaker connection.but these ports looks to wide and deep, not like regular banana ports. can i use regular banana plugs with it ?


OK, you can use banana plugs, but there is an easier way to connect speakers there. Remove wires from bananas, clean wires from insulation about 5mm (3/8"), unscrew black and red handles of speaker connectors in the back. Look carefully and will see holes in the shaft where you can plug in the wires (carefully with the colours) and by screwing in you tighten the cables.

Rear left channel makes my speaker pop cuts in and ou at certain settings


Swap left and right speakers. Does it stay with the speakers if so you have a blown or damaged speaker. If not then swap input cables only. If it stayed with the speaker you now know the amp has a bad channel and needs repair. If it swapped again you either have a bad cable or issue with your source unit.

Why is there no output to right speaker?


Confirm that the audio balance is not set to the left but in the middle!

Swap speaker connections to make sure the problem doesn't follow the speaker indicating the wiring to the speaker or speaker is bad.

Need to confirm that the input to the selected device is OK. Swap input RCA Red and White connections from the source. If an optical confirm that the source balance if the setting is available is set to middle

On many upgrade receivers as this Sherwood there is a test feature that confirms with an audio beep the speaker balance and connections. Look for a "Test" button.

Beside swapping the speaker connections left to right swap the speakers between the A and B speakers. See image for connection detail.

The protect mode is active - what are the fixes


It could be that there is a frayed speaker wire touching the back of the receiver and when playing at a low level the speakers do not require that much power, however when the level from the speakers increases more power is required and if there is a frayed speaker wire touching the back of the receiver there could be a short causing the receiver to shut down. A way to avoid the frayed wire is to use "Banana Connectors" that the speaker wires goes to and the connector will plug into the speaker posts. Please try the following to see where the issue is coming from. Have the receiver turned off, make sure all the speaker wires are labeled, and disconnect them from the speaker terminals.
Turn the receiver on select a source that would give you sound if the speakers where still connected and turn the volume all the way up. If the receiver shuts down than it would need to go to a service center as it is an internal problem with it. If the receiver does not shut down, turn the volume down, shut the receiver off and connect one speaker and than turn the receiver on selecting the same source as before and raising the volume up. If the receiver shuts down, remove that speaker from the post and connect it to another speaker post to determine if it is the receiver or the speaker itself that is giving you the problem. If the receiver should shut down after moving that speaker you know it is a problem with the speaker or the wiring. If the receiver does not shut down, turn the volume down, shut the receiver off and connect another speaker followed by doing the previous test procedure. Keep adding speakers until you have them all reconnected to the receiver as long as it has not shut off while trying the test procedure. After determining whether it is the speakers or the receiver you would need to bring either to a service center to be repaired. To locate an authorized independent service center, check the dealer and service locator at our website:

I've just been given a pair of working Mission 780 speakers. There are 4 connecters on each speaker and 2 brass plates linking the left inputs to each other and the same with the right ones. What's the...


Do not remove the brass plates! These work as a bridge between the connections, making them a universal speaker. You only need one input. The other input should say "Bridge", which is an output to the other speaker, allowing you to run these speakers as monitors or subs. The bridge option runs both speakers on the same channel, making it a mono signal, so if they are used as monitors, everyone hears the same thing. If they are used as subs, equal power goes to each, reducing the chance of a blown speaker.


Hope that helps!

New to the mixer world. i have a dicontinued pmp5000. can't get the bridge mode to work


You require a special cable with the Speakon copnnector wired a special way. Refer to your user manual for the correct pin connections to use bridged mode and then put the slide switch in the position closest to the effects display.

Refer to figure 4.6 on page 10 and figure 4.7 showing the connection for bridge mode.

NOTE: you cannot go below 8 ohm speaker on the bridge mode... that USUALLY means a singl speaker of 8 ohms... you CANNOT parallel two 8 ohm speakers.

The single speaker cable will plug into the "B" output connector. Remember bothe the barrel and the tip of the connector if using 1/4 inch plugs is HOT and grounding either inadvertently will fry the amp.

Left speaker has developed a hum. Checked connections and all seems well. Sounds raspy like the speaker has blown.


This is likely due to a problem with the amplifier. You may have turned up the amp to the point of overdriving the speaker. The distortion at these high levels cause clipping and turn what was once crisp, clear sound into a muddied, garbled mess.

If the speaker is left connected to that source long enough, damage to the speaker and the amp may occur.

Without changing positions of the speakers: You can disconnect the affect Front or Rear L & R speakers and swap them (connect the L speaker to the R output of the amp and vice-versa). If the buzzing / hum "moves" to the other speaker, then the amplifier has the problem. If the buzzing / hum stays with the same speaker, the speaker has issues and is likely "blown".

Either way, it is probably not going to be a "cheap fix"

Good luck!

Just clicks no power. Already checked for touching wires and proper cooling. This unit has worked fin in the same location for four years. Any other ideas?


I had a similar 'drop out' problem with my Yamaha RX-V3300.
Problem- Possibly loose speaker connections.
I have banana connections which I unplugged; tightened speaker terminal connections at back of receiver and then reinserted banana speaker connectors- which remedied problem. There is possibly some kind of loose connection either caused by the banana plugs or at speaker connectors at the back of the receiver, which was remedied (i.e. possibly temporarily) by reinserting the banana plugs.
I also previously thought something was wrong with the main on/off power relay which was 'dropping out' and replaced it, but then 'drop out' problem returned a few days later. I reinserted and tightened speaker connectors, which has it working again.

Problem with Diamond 8.4


No - sounds like the speaker/ cross over is faulty - I assume there are only one set of connections on the back - on some speakers you have 4 connections for dual wiring - and you usually bridge those out Play a piece of music with some drumming in it and you should see the midrange move a lot Just to make sure there is not a problme with the Amp - swap the speakers around - so you have a left speaker and a right speaker connected physically move the left speaker over to the rightside and connect to right side cables - and the right speaker to the left side and connect to left cables Now if the problem goes over to the other side - its the speaker thats fault if it stays on the sam side - its the amp
