Question about Supersonic 5.1 CHANNL HOMETHEATR DVD System

1 Answer

Only have sound on my front speakers with my HT - AS8 home theater system

I have checked all connections multiple times, and even swapped speakers connections to ensure that all the speakers are fully functioning. I only hear out of the front 2 speakers, nothing out of the 2 rear, center or sub. I'm pretty sure it is a programming issue, but for the life of me can't seem to figure this out. I'm not a novice at this, but am quickly running out of ideas. Please help.

Re: Only have sound on my front speakers with my HT - AS8...

This is a very common complaint that new users complain about. On your system or modt folks system, they say that the DVD will work fine on the surround but the TV set and or the radio will not. The biggest problem I have found regarding this is that the TV set is not connected through the correct audio plugs and/or the suround selector switch was set to the wrong surround setting. Look on your owners manual for the correct settings when using a TV set or set the setting to differant mode while having the TV set on.

My SONY Home Theater Model HT-6600DP unit was working fine and then about tow years after...present, my sub woofer is sounding distorted. Why is this happening? Please help me as I often watch my home...

Is it so even at lower volumes?

Are you sure it's the sub distorting and not the front or center speakers?

If you designate them incorrectly as Large (which tells the receiver they CAN effectively produce bass frequencies) they will probably distort in the presence of low frequencies.

System is samsung HT-TWZ415. all speakers work, not the sub

Check all of your connections, and make sure all cords are firmly connected.
Make sure if the subwoofer has a power switch, it is on, and if not, that it is likely to be faulty.

Your systemn is designed and built to perform 2.1 sound. If you want 5.1 sound you can do 2 things, connect another pair of speakers to the same speakerterminal as your front speakers, however this produces 5.1 stereo sound and not 5.1 surround sound.
You can buy a new system that has the proper connections.

This set will not have the proper decoding software to produce 5.1 surroundsound. sorry.

  1. With the home theater system off, press and hold the REMAIN button on the home theater's remote control for 5 seconds.
    Note: You can release the REMAIN button when the POWER LED blinks blue/Red depending on model.
  2. With the SWA-3000 turned on, use a ball point pen to press the RESET button on the back of the SWA-3000. The POWER LED in the front of the home theater blinks two times.
