You should just have to plug them in. It should be as simple as that, There should be a "miniture stereo" jack from the speakers (usually coloured green). There should be an audio out jack on your compaq. Just plug it in.

If this is a laptop, there MAY be a setting in your control panel to redirect the audio to external speakers. Sheck your compaq owners manual.

You don't say how "TV audio" is entering the system.

My guess is you're using analog audio Out from the TV into an analog input on the Denon. One channel failing would probably be the Left Channel cable failing or not seated.

I always recommend bypassing the TV audio entirely if the programming comes from somewhere other than its own antenna, as TV audio electronics add nothing good to the process.

If you're using cable box, sat box, game, whatever, ITS audio is best sent directly to your Denon's specialized audio hardware - digitally, if possible, to preserve multichannel possibilities.

You could also run standard analog audio from the cable box to the TV analog Audio IN if you just want to watch news and weather on TV speakers without the Denon involved.

Get a separate amp for the 901's and the rest falls into place.

1,2, 5) Place the 901 Active EQ between the pre/main front OUT of the receiver and the TFM-55X. Attach the 901's. Keep track of the jumpers you remove from the receiver. Or replace the jumpers with RCA splitter cables so you still have pre/main connection but can share the output with the TFM.

3) Pinnacle subwoofer (self-powered?) to the subwoofer out of the receiver.

4) Bose (AMS???) 5. As surrounds on the receiver. Place the sub module toward the rear so it mates sonically and directionally with them.

What? No center speaker? I'd get something more robust with bass capabilities, like a pair Bose 301 series 1's because the tweeters face in one direction only.

Except for the amps and the cube stuff that is essentially what I have. 6.1 with full-range speakers everywhere.

I just enherited a pair of bose 901 speakers


My suggestion is do not hook the 901's directly to the Onkyo. It is compatable, but they WANT more than what the receiver can give them. I suggest going and getting a dedicated amplifier for them. Trust me, you'll be a lot happier going that route.

Bass speaker not working. Sub woofer connection not producing current to allow Bass speaker to work.Would like to try to connect to 6 channel set up but not sure how that's done since I have the speakers...


make sure speaker voice coil are still good...continuity checks will confirm this....as far as 6 channel hook up, you need to know what the lowest impedance allowed is from your system and then wire up your speakers in series /parallel to come up with a final impedance that will very closely match the systems minimum output impedance

A/B switch


you can't.they are wired in series so that it is 16 ohms.if you parallel 2 sets of 8 ohm speakers,it makes 4ohms and that is much harder on the amp,so alot of new ones,a and b are in series

Want to buy YAMAHA RXZ11 receiver but where to get yamaha recomen


The Yamaha RXZ-11 does not come with any set of speakers. Infact there are no "recommended 11.2ch speaker kits". You are advised to purchase top quality Yamaha speakers. Better yet, build your own 11.2 kit. Its not too hard (internet helps) and its tremendously fun!

Just connected the SWA-4000 wireless amplified to my samsung ht-z310 - the readout on the display is "Rear Chk" there is no sound from the rear speakers- any help is appreciated


swa-4000 wireless module isn't compatible with htz310. You need to buy Samsung's swa-3000 to work with your htz310. I had the same problem. It tells you in your owners manual under conectivity where it explains about hooking up a wireless module(pg.55-60). I hope this helps.

Marantz SR 7200


Most often it is due to improper speaker loading. In other words, it needs to have from 4 to 8 ohms speaker load and you wired your speakers in parallel when they should have been wired in series. What would have been an 8 ohm speaker load in series, turns into a 2 ohm load when in parallel. And with dual voice coil speakers you just compound the problem. And don't even get me started on bridged outputs.
Anyway that is what usually causes an amp to fry. Good luck.

It turns out that the problem happened to be an overlooked error: the Wave Synth meter in the volume panel was muted, thus I was getting feedback but no noise. My problem is fixed now; hopefully I don't make anymore simple mistakes like that again.
