Hello, My fender mexican jazz bass has a clipping sound when you slap it! It can clip even when turn down very low. I think it could be the front pick up?

Have you tried lowering your pick ups? If they are too close to your stings they could be picking too much. also try playing with the settings on your amp.

Technics SU-G91... clipped out @ high volume. Disassembled, sleaned and applied new grease to heat sinks. Amp worked great for a while, clipped out and now occasionally will not light up the front dis


First off, why do you drive the amp into clipping? It's not good for amp, nor your Klipsch. We won't even mention the terrible load that Klipsch in parallel presents to your amplifier, nor the distortion. I would suggest to you, that the amp goes into thermal overload. Trying turning it down by 20-30db, and see if it stays on-line. It can be fixed, if turning it down doesn't help, it can be repaired, but not inexpensively.

Htddw7600, brand new, sub amp is not working, only way to get any bass sound is to unplug the sub cable from back of main amp and touch it on side of sub out port.


H?,
You have a very good system...one of the best of SONY..SUB does not get activated automatically especially on STEREO mode.DIRECT STEREO Notes • No sound will be output from the subwoofer.
.your system has Dedicated Power Amplifier for 2 Externally Driven Sub-Woofers (200W RMS x 2)..in order to activate the sub woofer amplifier you need to make a selection on the surround modes while you are switching the modes of the surround you will see the speaker position on the display of receiver as well..if you do not see the sub woofer it wont be activated..Sound Field Program (A.F.D) is a good example to test it..
Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up
for Helping out the Community :)

Hope this helps!

--------------------
Additionally please follow the instruction on your user manual to activate the SUB ,as is follows..

-----------------
BASS-OUT
Low-frequency (bass) signals can be directed to the
subwoofer and/or the front left and right speakers
according to the characteristics of your system. This
setting also determines the routing of the LFE (low-
frequency effect) signals found in Dolby Digital or DTS
sources.
Choices: SWFR (subwoofer), FRONT, BOTH
• Select SWFR if you connect a subwoofer. LFE and
low-frequency signals from other channels are directed
to the subwoofer according to the speaker settings.
• Select FRONT if you do not use a subwoofer. LFE and
low-frequency signals from other channels are directed
to the front speakers according to the speaker settings
(even if you have previously set the front speakers to
SML).
• Select BOTH if you connect a subwoofer and you want
to output low-frequency signals from front channels to
both the front speakers and subwoofer. LFE and low-
frequency signals from other channels are also directed
to the subwoofer according to the speaker settings. Use
this function to reinforce low-frequency signals using
the subwoofer when playing back sources such as CDs.

Running two cerwin vega ntense 252's off a pyle pro pta3000 amp and it sounds extremely muddy. Lines signals are clipping and stressing the sound. What's the best fix with still getting a high volume...


I wonder if all the clipping and stressing hasn't taken out the tweeters. They hate DC and square waves. Turn the gain down so you don't have clipping and stressing.

There are a multitude of user settings that can affect the apparent loss of bass you describe. Since you mention it is relevant to a soundfield choice that sort of eliminates hardware problems.

Find the SET Menu and set everything under SOUND according to your actual speaker configuration. For the purposes of set up, consider the word LARGE to mean "CAN handle substantial low bass" and SMALL to mean "would distort or be destroyed by substantial low bass".

Under LFE/Bass Out, the Front/Both setting addresses the sharing (or not) of Low Frequencies with Large Front speakers. I recommend BOTH if your front speakers have large woofers or are otherwise bass-capable (since physical size isn't everything).

Run through the speaker Distance and Level adjustments. The LFE/Level will have a huge effect on perceived bass so check it out.

Check the Dynamic Range. It's vague about what optimim is, but avoid using MIN. I'd try MAX or STD for expected loud listening.

Run Low Freq Test to match the sub to your other speakers.

There are lots of opportunities in this beast for MALadjustment. It's your responsibility to understand the settings you select.

How do you adjust the bass levels on a Yamaha HTR6130 receiver? I can get the display to show Bass 0db, but what button changes the settings?


When you touch tone button on your front panel repeatedly, you will get two option for setting bass and trebble, when you select Bass immediatly press your updown Sound field Program Button.
Please note:for better sound if your using Small front speaker keep bass to 0db and select the low frequency through sub woofer and program manually LFE from only Sub woofer and addjust CUT off frequency of Subwoofer to 160 and incase if your bass is not clear put it into rev mode.

Unit will not turn on


the AG-V8528 uses a **** metal clip to hold one of the transistors in place. The screw that hold the metal bracket to the bottom of the reciever gets lose. Mine was factory lose. when I moved the set, it moved the clip on to the circuit leads and has probably shorted out a part of the power supply that control the on/off secondary circuit.

The transistor the has the clip is a the bottm front,and is D2058. YOu will easisly see the metal clip with a screw in it. Check that it is not lose. It is supose to worl like a heat sink and hold the transnitor in place, but I am going to remove or glue mine if I can find/fix the damage.

Un-known red light


Your bass in to high on the receiver or you need to upgrade your speaker wire to handle the power given to your speakers. Or you speakers can not handle the power of the amp. but 1st try adjusting your Bass Level down some to see if that works.

Denon receiver shutdown


Try turning down your tone controls. Like your bass, treble, or your equalizer. If you hear too much tinny or hissing sounds, the treble has to be turned down, or turn down the upper bands controls on your equalizer to the optimun level. If you hear too much bassy sounds, your bass control has to be turned down, or the lower band controls has to be turned down to the optimun level. If you are planning on turning the volume up, you may have to turn down some of the tone controls to the optimun levels, otherwise, your receiver may shutdown, or you may blow fuses in your speakers. Also make sure you speaker wire polarity is hooked up right. Red wire on the + red terminals, and the black wire on the - black terminals. Also don't have the volume turned up too high to the point where your receiver would have clipping or distortion, or else your receiver may shutdown, or you may blow fuses in your speakers.

If this don't help, then there may be something wrong with your receiver or your speaker.
