Central Speaker not giving a good output

Dear Sir, All of a sudden, my AV - 8 center speaker output is lower than it used to be, in the sense that it is working but the voice is very low. I tried changing the wire and checked the wiring but still it is not. It is the same when I do the test tone. Thx Wael

Then something in the speaker cabiet is bad. your going to have to have it tested out by a pro if you dont have the proper equipment to test it. if you have to ask what equipment then no offense, but you dont have it.

Impedance setting on Yamaha AV Receiver

Hi. You can always use a Receiver with an output impedance that is lower than the speakers input impedance.Problems arise when you try to use a Receiver with a higher output impedance than the Speakers input impedance.

4 ohm and 8 ohm speakers

You can plug in higher ohm speakers , the higher the ohm the higher the resistance is, it is a danger when you plug lower ohm speakers into a higer ohm Amp , at a high volume that will cause them to blow , the center speaker would be fine to use a higer ohm speaker , your best choice is to buy a Active Subwoofer, which means the sub has it's own power supply , and u can blast the thing as much as u like , thn u can turn the bass down on all the other speaker's so u can play it louder , and have the sub turned up has high as u like , this is the best way to get great sound with high volume , buy a Active sub woofer , any active subwoofer is ok , a active sub woofer has its own volume and inputs on the speaker ,

I have a kenwood 350watt amp on 2 mtx thunder 12's

Check the impedence of the connected speakers. if any impedence mismatch is there, the amp will sense it and will cuto the output OFF. Use only specified speakers only. The impedence of speakres are expressed in "Ohms". Select all speakers of same impedence. If 6 Ohms is the output impedence of the amp, use only that Ohms speaker. Never use a speaker less that this Ohms. You can use a higher impedence speaker, say 8 Ohs or 16Ohms. But never use lower impedence speakers, of connect two speakers in parellel connection, which will relult in overloading. I think that I've made a satisfactory solution to you. Please don't hesitate to rate this solution. Good luck
Wish you a Merry X'mas and Happy 2012.

Hook up lower level input to the audio source 230 subwoofer but can't get any sound for the speaker that is hook up through the speaker level input or output.

The speaker level connectors on the sub are for use when you DON'T have an AV receiver-style subwoofer output. They only pass-through from YOUR amp to other speakers. You should NOT use both Line level and Speaker Level input to the sub.

What is your electronics? Have you looked at the manuals?

Can I use 6 ohm speakers on my 8 ohm aiwa av-x300?

You can use 6Ohms speaker in place of an 8Ohms speaker. No damage will occur to the set, but the quality of sound output will be a little bit less and the output will be a little bit high. OK.

How to connect external speakers to this tv. Only output jacks exist for audio.

Most of the TV's do not have a speaker output and so you will need to open the set and take the speaker connect to be meshed along with a impedance matching.
You can connect with a switch wherein the TV speakers can be switched OFF and the external speaker connected . If not the external speaker if connected in parallel must not bring down the impedance to a lower level not supported by the output IC.
The other option is to use the output AV to connect to an amplifier and speaker. ( Your Audio system)

check your amplifier output speaker impedance requirements..
example: 8 a speaker 8 ohms in parallel or series connection..
check the impedance using ohmeter must reach the required impedance..

use 1 cell battery to check if you speakers are in-phase...if one speaker did not ..reverse connection and check again give the good sound...hope you understand my english..:)

The front 3mm port is disconnected and I don't know where to hook it back up. I can't tell from the manual.

The front 3mm ports are for mic input / headphones output. The pin connectors are as follows. You need to use the JAudio header, which are in the lower-right corner of the motherboard closest to the front of the case when it's installed.

This header has 14 pins, and allows user to connect the front audio out put cable with the PC front panel. It will disable the output on back panel audio connectors.
Within this header, pin 1 is in the lower left corner, and pin 14 is in the upper right corner, like this:

2 ... ... ... 14
1 ... .. ... 13

The pinouts are:

1 Mic in/center
2 Ground
3 Mic power/Bass
4 Audio power
5 Right line out/Speaker out Right
6 Right line out/Speaker out Right
7 Reserved
8 Key
9 Left line out/Speaker out Left
10 Left line out/Speaker out Left
11 Right line in/Rear speaker Right
12 Right line in/Rear speaker Right
13 Left line in/Rear speaker Left
14 Left line in/Rear speaker Left

Center speaker hookup to a MARANTZ mdl 2238

Hi tliguyanadig

You can hook up the speaker "between" left and right outputs. Just connect the center speaker between left +ve and right +ve outputs respectively. It will give a spacial effect that some like and some dont:) Try it and see for yourself. Your marantz amp will handle the load OK. It is rated 38 watts into 8 ohms, but there is not alot of load presented by this sort of setup. Let me know what you think.
