    I have five speakers hooked up to my Yamaha HTR-5840. Two front and two rear for surround and a subwoofer. The problem is that when I have the thing set to 6-Channel Stereo I only get sound from the left front and left rear speakers and subwoofer. I have run the speaker test and all of the speakers are correctly hooked up and sound fine during test. Do I have a bad receiver or am I missing something?

When I hook up the rear speakers to my in-wall speakers, I can't get any sound. I have speaker button 1 and 2 selected.


Hi:
you need to clear that you connect wall speakers for font,center or rear (surround) speakers?
Seem you connect for Front speaker.
Rear (surround) speaker will have "rear" mark on the back of your reveiver.
In general you need to select both buttons 1 & 2 then check your speaker wires connect into "output1" or "output 2" hint: each output will have 1 for left and 1 for right speaker. Each Left or right speaker will have 2 connection 1 red color (+) and 1 white color (-). Try to match these colors code for your speakers connection.

I been having a problem with my JBL TLX CSS-SUB1, I don't have the manual. Connecting speaker wires from the JBL TLX CSS-SUB1 to the a Digital Audio/Video Control Center ( it's a reciever) I confused,...


The connection on the receiver would be the sub woofer out. Not a sub woofer out LFE, a sub woofer out with speaker wire connection. From there you plug it in to the top section of the available terminals on the sub you are referring to (speaker level input). One in positive and the other in negative matching what you did on the receiver with correct ends. The speaker connections underneath the top connections is for additional speakers like surrounds to be able to be connected directly to the sub woofer speaker level out for sound. This of course would be for an older receiver connection. I do not think it is possible to convert this connection to an LFE and have it work properly. If the receiver does not have sub woofer speaker connection and only a RCA out then you can try to connect both rear speaker connections from the receiver to the speaker level inputs on the sub and then connect your rear speakers to the speaker level output on the sub to power them. This is an active sub woofer but for some reason they made it connect as if it was passive. I am not sure if this sub is designed for really low frequencies required for movie or if it is better for music.

if its a 5.1 channel home theater,it means you have to hook up the subwoofer or maybe a center speaker to its terminal to have them all working. 2 front speaker,2 rear speaker and 1 center speaker or subwoofer =5 and amplifier is 1 so it is a 5.1 channel.hope this help..

Speakers


If I understand you right, you have 7 speakers on 7 different channels.
When you have just 1 speaker connected it sounds fine, but any time you add more speakers it shuts down, or does it sound fine until you have all 7 of the speakers connected.

Bare with me, and we will figure this out. It is a very diificult job trying to troubleshoot something that is not in front of you.

After this post, it will be about an hour or so before you will hear from me again, I will be on my way home from work.

Is this a 5.1 surround system or is it listed as 7.1?

Do have have any speaker outputs with more than 1 speaker connected to it.

If this is a 5.1 system, do you have speakers connected to the "A and "B" speaker jacks?

What kind of speakers are they, and do they say on the back where you connect the speaker wire what ohm rating they are. Most speakers for your home are 8 ohms.

in case you were wondering what a 5.1 and a 7.1 system is:

the 5.1 system has front right, front left, center, rear right, rear left and the .1 is for the sub-woofer that is normally a RCA jack output on the back of the receiver

The 7.1 has all those same speaker outputs plus it has a surround back with right and left channel.

I will get back to you in about an hour or so.
