Losing treble at higher volume

Hi I have a denon AVR-3802 amp with DB Dynamics home theatre speaker package (I think the speakers are built in Austraila) when playing a audio cd through my dvd player (as I dont own a CD player)in stereo at 1/2 to 3/4 volume the sound drops noticably in the high range treble as if someone has put a pillow to the speakers. I upgraded my amp recently from a AVC-3800 to the AVR-3802 and still experiencing this pain can you help please and give me some sound advise would be appreciated. Regards

SOURCE: Stereo speaker suddenly stopped giving sound

You will need to take the speaker apart and with an ohm meter or continuity tester, measure the resistance of the speaker right at the speaker to see if the speaker is open. if it is you have no choice then to replace the speaker. If the speaker measures a low resistance, measure the wires froom the speaker to the output wires or terminals. Some speaker manufacturers install small fuses inside their speakers. Good Luck

SOURCE: popping during action scenes at moderate volume

the woofer is being overdriven and the voice coil is hitting the magnet structure.eventually it will damage the coil end and it will scrape in the gap.

Just purchased Sony DA5800 ES reciever will my Bose 901 speakers work with this? Need help

Bose 901 speakers are designed to use with the Bose equaliser patched between the pre-amplifier out and power-amplifier in of your receiver. Having said that, Bose did not invent EQ, neither is EQ a mystical process. Not sure which series 901s you are talking about, but I would definitely be experimenting with the built-in EQ supplied with your Sony DA5800 ES. The manual says you have +/- 10 dB of adjustment for treble and bass for each of the surround channels. That is not really adequate in my opinion, not only would I be seeking +/- 15 dB, but I would also like to be able to apply those adjustments at frequencies chosen by me, not just 'treble' and 'bass' To use the Bose EQ, it needs to be patched between a preamp output and power amp input. The Sony DA5800 ES has preamp outputs, so you could use these (Note that the built-in EQ is disabled when using these outputs) In this case you could either feed the signals back into the Sony (post Bose EQ) perhaps using a different 'Zone'. As an alternative option, you could power your 901's with a stand-alone two channel power amplifier. Then you get the full benefit of the Bose EQ as well as the surround sound from your Sony (front L+R speakers off) It all sounds like a lot of fun. Happy listening! Cheers, Don.

Will bose 901 speakers work with a AVR-4308CI

Yes they will, I have a set on a denon receiver amp ( not sur of the model # its in another town). The main thing for bose 901's is that the equlizer has to be connected somewhere beteen the preamp and the main amp, most higher power amps have a switch that opens a set of patch cord jacks that the Eq. can be connected thru. So you should verify this feature with any amp you chose. With out the Eq connected the 901's have no bass or highend sound.

For stereo only, anything pushing a good 100 watts (for real). I use a Carver MT-200.

If you want to use it in a mulitchannel home theatre setup you'll have to have a dedicated amp for it in addition to an AVR for the other channels and control.

Look around Fixya for the dozens of posts I've made in this area. One of them should work for you.

I cannot connect my bose 901 series v1 active equalizer to my denon av surround receiver avr-891

Short answer from personal experience.

There is no way around this part. Get a separate power amp for the 901's if you want to use them in a multichannel way or alongside non-901 speakers.

The reason: You can't use the Active EQ (or ANY processor) in a tape Monitor loop with anything but 2-channel stereo material. As soon as you activate the loop you lose digital sources.

Adding to YOUR particular problem is that the Denon doesn't have a volume-controlled pre-out to feed that amp. If you want to deal with controlling the separate amp volume manually you COULD connect the Active EQ between DVR Out and the 901 amp IN but you would have a stereo mixdown instead of true front channel from the speakers.

Initial Bose Speakr Hook-Up Acoust 10-Denon RCVR

Hope this may help but you will disappointed. as heard from some pro, your amp will blow up the bose cube if direct connected to them, they are powering down your output to fit their tiny speaker. My understanding was you have to hook up everything to the bose module. They don't like to play with others.

5.1 surround sound

Here is how you fix it. Its really easy actually take a look at your Subwoofer 99% of the time you can control two controls for your bass somewhere around the Subwoofer. If you raise the volume of your Subwoofer you'll get more bass. Try it and let me know how this works out for you alright.

Is it possible to to have a home theatre with Denon AVR 3600

one option that may yield results, since the bose connection to equalizer is presently not possible is to set the speaker out put on the denon for 'small' on all but the front speakers.
and then set the delay for all speakers based on the distance to the amp.
this should result in better audio that that with the bose eq.
will work on the issue of using the eq. with the denon if you like. but, you will likely not improve on the sound with the denon set up correctly.
good luck
