Question about RCA RS2044 Shelf System

1 Answer

Volume problem When I turn the power on, the volume is very high even though I turned it off at a much lower volume. Is there a setting somewhere that I need to adjust to lower volume (besides readjusting the volume dial each time I turn it on)? Shouldn't it turn back on at the same volume as when I powered off? Thanks, Diane

What ohm and watt speakers can I use with a craig CM402 cd am fm player? It came without them

Speaker requirements are likely to be 8 ohm, most modern hi-fi speakers are. A few low-fi systems have used special high impedance speakers and the old hi-fi standard for valve amplifiers was 15 ohm and 3 ohm or lower has been used in televisions a lot.

4 ohm speakers are commonly used where a higher power output is desired at the cost of some quality of sound reproduction but depending on how the sound is listened to can soon overload some amplifiers primarily designed for 8 ohm as it will try and deliver more power into the lower impedance speakers and perhaps exceed the rating.

8 ohms is a safer choice. The lower the wattage rating of the speakers the more efficiently they tend to be able to reproduce sound at low volume levels so for background music in a small domestic environment the average power requirement will be in the order of half a watt so even with a high powered amplifier the volume would rarely be turned up above 1 - 2 on the typical scale of 10 and ten watt speakers would be more than adequate. It is unfortunate that it is almost impossible to obtain quality speakers rated at such an unfashionably low power rating.

With the stiffer cones of a higher power rated speakers the volume has to be turned higher before the speakers become efficient and listening at low levels can be difficult. In a domestic environment a 50 watt rating is perhaps the best compromise as if there are neighbours to consider a ten watt average power output will be sufficient even if the amplifier is capable of higher powers. Just don't turn the volume up more than necessary.

The greater the power rating the more power will be required for efficient reproduction. For electrical and mechanical safety of the speakers the rating should exceed the maximum output of the amplifier but listening at low levels with quality of sound can become virtually impossible.

It is all a matter of taste and environment.

The speaker make a buzzing sound

that's called breaking up or overloading it means that the speaker is being asked to play louder than it was designed to play!! this will ruin the speaker at all volume levels if allowed to make that sound for very long..advice? lower the volume till that noise disappears it's not a product fault it's user error advice turn it down or buy a more powerful unit to achieve the volume you want/need

I have a Panasonic Cathedral Radio, Model No. RE-30. The volume is stuck on high. The knob turns freely, and occasionally, the volume will lower of its own accord. How would I fix this?

This sounds like an IC that controls the sound level is playing up. It will need to be replaced to make it work. If you have the knowledge to do it yourself all you need do is trace the wires from the volume control and you should see the IC.

I was able to change the volume with a small screwdriver.Not easily though,once you get it to the correct volume turn if off by unplugging.

make sure the surround is off. Also, there is a setting on the remote that changes the volume on certain speakers. I think its 'CH.SELECT'. Just lower the front speaker and raise the center channel.

If the volume control can be turned continuously in either direction (no stopping), then the control is what is called an encoder and the behavior you are describing is an internal logic failure. If the control has an upper and lower limit (only turns so far), then it is a standard volume control and is physically broken and needs to be replaced. In either case, the unit should be under warranty. Return it to Best Buy for repair. Given that it just came out of the box, talk to a manager and request an exchange.

The default volume is set way too high on this radio. It is at 17 and we would like to reset it to a much lower level. How do I do this?

The volume is too high when the alarm comes on

There are several complaints in FIXYA and they are all about this same fault condition....the volume is too high when turned on...

Because of the high number of complaints about this same fault I would suggest that its a manufacturer fault.

So the manufacturer should be contacted about it to ask for your money back..

Cheers From YUBEUT..
