Yes! The speaker outputs will have an impedance rating from 4Ʊ to 16Ʊ. If you have two speakers that are rated at 8Ʊ they can be wired in parallel for 4Ʊ total or in series for 16Ʊ total. You can even connect more speakers in a series-parallel circuit, say four to result in a sum of 8Ʊ, 16 speakers to result in 8Ʊ and so forth! Study Ohm's Law and you will see how the circuit looks. Series connection for example will have the + lead from one speaker to the - lead of the next then the + of that speaker back to the - of the first speaker. Parallel is just that + to + and - to -. Series parallel is just a combination of the two circuits. If you have a several speakers of the same size within a single cabinet that are all in phase it is like one giant speaker as it is the air moved that makes the sound. Bose speakers phased-arrays use a sophicated application of this principal to get awesome bass with less distortion than one big woofer. Do not go under or over the impedance rating or the amp could suffer. Fusing can help.

There is no sound from left speaker


The audio output stage on the left channel has failed or blown a fuse. Check the speaker wires carefully, if okay! I recommend a pro to examine the receiver.

I have a Yamaha RX-V1200 receiver (6.1).


I would get it assessed to see if the unit is worth repairing. There are Ic's and stand alone transistors that could add up when it comes to repairs.

My Sony STR-DG510 has quit outputting to my speakers (via stranded speaker wire). I suspect a blown fuse but no fuse is visible on the back panel. What's the secret to replacing the fuse? Thanks!


Sony strdg510 does not have fuses on the output, it uses an output relay. If you do not hear the second click about 6 sec. after powering it on, there is a problem in the output circuit. If you do hear that click, check that the speakers are on and tape 2 / tape monitor is off and that the speakers and wiring are good.

Theres no sound coming through the speaker ports .


At first consideration, the question appears a little vague. Any sound amplifier other than a simple two channel stereo system requires the appropriate driver signal(5.1, 6.1 et al ) in order to output sound to all speaker ports. If a stereo signal is fed in you will not get 5.1 or 6.1 or any other of the multiple speaker channel outputs from the speakers. The 5.1 or 6.1 etc. source signal must be provided on the medium you are playing or receiving for you to be able to hear it outputted on all speaker channels.
If on the other hand you mean that "There is no sound whatever coming through any of the speaker ports no matter what you play into the amp" then the whole thing would need to be checked from input to output by a Technician to determine at which point the source signal is being lost on its way through the entire circuitry.
In this case I would recommend you arrange for an fixed fee inspection which might include a minor repair up to that amount if that is what is found to be necessary.

I have no sound coming out of receiver all of a sudden. Connected speakers to another radio and speakers work fine. Everything looks fine on receiver just no sound. Oh, and the mute button is not on.


It is an indication that you have a faulty output ic.
Output ic is responsible for amplifying the audio from your reciever to sound output which is converted by your speakers.

If you're output ic is defective then definitely you haven't sound produce even your unit is working.

I've advice you to look for a qualified technician to checked the condition of your output ic and do some re-soldering for some dry joints on the board.

Thanks for using fixya...

The left side main output won't put out any sound on my Denon AVR-900.


connect your right speaker cable to the left output, if the sound comes out then the problem is on the left speaker ( the cable or the speaker itself ), but if still no sound, then the problem is on the power output of the unit, need to repair them

No sound output from Center and Surround speakers


the only time the center and surround speakers put out sound is when it has a surround sound source such as a dvd etc. and only certain sounds come from them as well.

Kenwood VR6070 speaker/amp problems


unit needs repair. Look at the b speakers. Conect a speaker or two to the B position. If you have no sound than your surrond sound is ok and the unit is bad. Sound comes directly into the b speaker and not threw the surrond system. My 6070 has a cold start up problem. no sound. time to purchase a new one. to costly to repair.
