    Hi bernieszy



    Sometimes they can, do you have a picture of it, or part numbers of the back of it? Is it burnt, or just stopped.



    regards

SOURCE: 4 ohm speakers with 8 ohm receivers

Please check with the manual of your receiver whether it is capable of running 4 ohm speakers.

if yes, then please go ahead, you will not loose any Sound quality. Sound quality will depend a lot on the performace of the speaker as well as the frequency range it can deliver.

If no, please do not connect. Though, you might be able to play and listen to the music, but it will overload your receiver!!

If you are not sure, please let me know the brand and model of your receiver and I can check for you.

Please do rate this solution and thanks for using FixYa!

SOURCE: pushing 4 ohm speaker systems

Officially this receiver supports only 6 and 8 ohm speakers. But for surround speakers it should not do any harm, because they are not played at full volume. But be sure to set yamaha for 6 ohm speakers.
Using only 4 ohm speakers makes the amplifier work more hard and produce more heat, that's why you can't use it at high volume.

Safe to use 4 speaker with Technics Receiver?


The best thing to do is place a VOM meter to confirm that there are 6 ohm speakers

My receiver I saying overload and switc power off


Disconnect all speakers and see if you get the same error.
If you don't , get an ohm meter and start checking the speakers and wires.
Anything les than 4 ohms is likely the problem.
Check the impedance on your speakers to see if they should read 8 ohms or 4 ohms.
Check the wires for shorts.

If the amp says overload with all inputs and outputs disconnected, then you likely have a blown output transistor. Start checking the output transistors for shorts between any 2 pins.
To check the transistors properly, check them out of circuit.
here's a couple links to my tips and tricks to help you in that area.

I have the Harman Kardon AVS 235 reciever and once it gets to a certain volume (which is not too loud) it shuts down and goes into protective mode. All speaker wires are fine and no bare wires touching.


dust inside the receiver? prolly not too much.

how about ohmage? ensure that the speakers are the proper ohmage OR higher (at least prolly 8 ohms, 8? ) and ensure that you do not have multiple speakers hooked up to any channel, as two 8 ohm speakers in parallel on the same circuit would reduce the ohmage to 4 ohms.

also ensure that you do not have any fried vioce coils in any of your speakers (woofers, mids or tweeters). a fried voice coil could reduce the ohmage as well. if necesarry, use a multimeter to test each speakers ohmage, an 8 ohm speaker should not test any lower than 6 ohms at rest with a multimeter.

if its not an ohmage issue, and all speaker wires are verified fine, then it is the amp itself- prolly an integrated circuit chip, which are usually not repairable by the user.

Hi. Having problem getting sound from the little tweeters on my technics sb-1970 speakers. They are 3way linear phase speakers 90w each. I took the tweeter out and every wire is connected. Tried pushing...


If you went so far as looking at the wires on the tweeters you could have taken an ohmmeter to them to see if they're blown.

Is there a back story to this? What preceded the investigation?

I have floor speakers that i replaced all the speakers in it with 4 ohm speakers and i just bought a onkyo receiver n it gets really hot and shut off 1 time....i was wondering if there is a way to wire it...


Home audio is typically 8 ohms. If the speakers you used were designed for mobile audio then this would be why the receiver is overheating. You may be overloading the output

I have a technics sa-ax7 receiver and have sudenly lost sound on the right hand speakers.can they still be repaired. What could be the problem. Thanks


1). Look for a blown fuse on back - or inside. I had this similar problem with a Technics SA 5060 (vintage) receiver, and there were 2 separate fuses for left and right channels. One may be blown.
2). Try switching speakers (physically switch the left and right input plugs in their jacks - or wires if no jacks. If the left speaker doesn't work now, there is an issue with the speaker that has no sound. Run an ohm meter on these speakers as well to check them. There should be 8 ohms approximately. If no reading, then your apeaker is probably blown. If you can see a short on ohm meter 0 ohms) then you have a short circuit in your speaker.

I have a kenwwod AX-7 home theatre systems. the right side top speaker (tweeter) on one side does not work. i'm thinking there is a fualt with the amplifier on the right side.


If the only problem is the tweeter, and the woofer is still working, you do not have a problem in the amplifier. The problem is the speaker. The tweeter is blown or you have a problem in the cross over network in the speaker.

You can always switch the speakers and connect them to the opposite channel. You can do this very easy at the back of the receiver where the speaker wires are at. Put the left speaker wires on the right speaker and the right speaker wires on the left speaker. If the same speaker still has no tweeter you know that the speaker is the problem.

The only way this could be a problem in the amplifier is if you have two different sets of inputs for each speaker, one being the low end for the woofer and the other being the high end for the mid range and tweeter. That would mean you have two sets of speaker wires going to each speaker. Each set of speaker wires would have a positive wire and a negative wire for a total of 4 wires going to each speaker. I don't remember this system being set up that way, but I could be wrong.

I hope this was helpful, you should be able to get the speaker fixed at an authorized Kenwood repair center in your area for a reasonable price. As a guide, my shop only charges $25 for the labor plus the cost of the tweeter to replace a tweeter. Any other shop should be similar. Kenwood does sell replacement drivers for almost all of their speakers.
