Question about Aiwa TS-C20 Computer Speakers

1 Answer

Aiwa active subwoofer computer speaker problem.

When installing my speaker system, I got the speaker cables the wrong way round, plus in minus, minus in plus. According to the manual, if you do this 'cd image will be lost'. Unfortunately, due to this error my system does not work, I get no sound at all. The computer does not recognise the system when it is plugged in, despite the fact It has a sound card installed. Has anyone got any ideas to get around this problem. Thanks.

According to the manual for your amplifier would be a good start. It's just a passive sub. Plus to plus, minus to minus.

I purchase a denon AVR-591 & now i am using speakers from a kenwood home theater system but know all of the speakers work except the subwoofer does not, know the swbwoofer input has a wire Plus Minus...

Take a clue from the bare wire speaker connections on a speaker not matching RCA connectors. RCA is not for feeding +/- speaker terminals on REAL audio equipment.

The Denon requires an active (self-amplified) subwoofer which it feeds a specialized Low Frequency Line Level Pre Out signal.

Disassembling the parts of HTS and reassigning them to other makes and models is unwise and unpredictable electrically and sound-wise.

I have a Alpine MRP-M350 amp and then I have 2 10 Kicker Freair F10A Subwoofers. What's the best set up for this combo?

From the plus(+) of the speaker output on the amplifier run a cable to the plus(+) on the voice coil of the first subwoofer then follow thru with the same cable to the plus(+) of the other subwoofer.
From the minus(-) of the speaker output on the amplifier, run a cale to the minus(-) of the first subwoofer then follow thru with the same cable to the minus(-) of the other subwoofer.
This will make your amplifier run @ 2OHMS and provide you with 350 Watt RMS which will work fine even if you run your subwooffers free air(without a box))
hope this helps

How to identify positive and negative on a JBL 2408 diaphram

an easy way to identify polarity is with a 9 volt battery --connect the plus and the minus of the battery to the speaker terminals ---if the woofer pushes out--then the plus of the battery is connected to the plus of the speaker --if the woofer goes in then the plus of the battery is connected to the minus of the speaker and then mark it with a black dot on the speaker to indicate its the negative for the speaker and now you know which is plus and which is ground--enjoy

Subwoofer hum -MTX12" connected to a Aiwa Surround sound. No problems first 10 months, then suddenly all the subwoofer will do is humm loudly and not play music. Changed cables, no change, changed where it...

I assume this is an active sub. The amplifier has most likely failed. You have proved the signal source is not the problem, well almost if you can sucessfully connect the aiwa sub to another amp then we will know for sure. Usually amplifiers fail with an output device short circuit. The hum you here is the power supply direct on the speaker, I would not leave it on for long or speaker damage may ensue.

How 2 bridge tha opti drive 1222d 12inch subs 2 the opti 600x2hc

You can check Both Crutchfield's learning center on subwoofer wiring diagrams and with their wiring diagrams. The crutchfield setup will be more informative for this type of problem. Just go one of the + to one of the - on each sub then wire the other plus's together between the subs as well as the minuses like between the subs and use the open plus and minus that u didn't just bridge. Then there should be just 2 wires a plus and a minus to the amp. Then follow the amp bridge wiring which should be found right above the speaker terminals it will be left plus to right minus or the other way around

Speakers connection

There shouldnt be a problem with that at all. The subwoofer needs to be self powered. The Yamaha has a "Subwoofer Output" on the back. Just connect it there.
