Hi,
Yes I can help you with that. Most Sony or Samsung Home Theater systems come with speacial speaker connectors that only Sony or the manufactures sell and they are quite expensive and are not campatible with other systems. I work for a company called Bogue Engineering Group and we manufacture our own universal speaker wire connectors. Ours are better because they are compatible with every other system and the come in many different options such as; full size 12 foot cables in either 18 gauge or 16 gauge and even 14 gauge speaker cables (Sony uses 20 or 22 gauge) and you can also order them in 6 foot lengths or any other length if needed since we do make custom lengths. Or you can order the connectors with a short 4 inch wire that allows you to hook up your own speaker cable which then can be any length or gauge you choose. The best part is that they never break unlike the Sony brand. Because the Sony brand is a locking type connector, if you accidentally pull on the wire or trip over it, you will pull the wire out of the connector and it can never be fixed. Our universal connectors have a different design so that would never happen and they are made from a very heavy duty nylon, not plastic so they won't break if you step on them or if the dog chews them. Try our website www.BogueEngineering.com or you can email me at bogue-engineering@live.com and I will be happy to help you. My name is Gary and I hope the info helps.

SOURCE: Speaker cables are too short

Just go to Radio Shack and buy some RCA jacks, the length of wire that you need and a soldering iron. Those inexpensive extension cords (12 and 15 foot) at the dollar store make good speaker wire, as copper is better. Just cut off the ends. Speaker wire from an electronics store is expensive.
If you decide to go to Radio Shack or similar store, the clerk should be able to explain everything to you, if not, run, don't walk to another store. You will eventually find someone to help you. If you don't know how to solder, just go to google and type in "how to solder". I'm sure you'll get plenty of hits.

Post back here for any further questions.

  • there might be speaker wires touching somewhere
  • check all ventilation slats in Receiver make sure dust free
  • Check all connections maybe cable connections mixed up
  • Make sure power cord plugged in all of the way. Also make sure that the cord does not have exposed wires (this could cause a short
  • Make sure the wall outlet you are using is not overloaded (Too much power being used)
  • If this problem persists call customer service

Want to use my current speakers with a new surround sound system. Current system is 5.1 channels, rated at 100w per channel @ 8. Ohms. New System is rated 145watts, 5.2 channels at 6 Ohms. Will b ok?


Hi Ronald.
8 Ohm speakers will work just fine as replacements for the
6 ohm speakers. When fitting speakers you need to consider
The power handling capability. The impedance and the frequencies
involved. Power handling is expressed in wattage ie 100W.
Unfortunately this can be expressed in rms, max or peak music. The rms value (root mean square) is the only really relevant figure as this is the continuose handling power at 1 KHz. The impedance
is the resistance that the amp sees but is not a dc resistance and
varies with frequency. The lower the impedance the more power
will be drawn from the amp. In the event of a short circuit across
the speaker the amp will try to deliver infinite power into an infinitly
small load in an infinitesimal amount of time and will self destruct.
Using an 8 Ohm speaker draws less power than a 6 Ohm speaker.
Connecting speakers in parallel; results in the impedance beingreduced. For example two 8 Ohm speakers in parallel will result
in a 4 Ohm impedance load but in series will be 16 Ohms.
Incidentally the the .1 (5.1) is the sub woofer which only has
to handle the bass frequencies, a small percentage of the
amplifiers overall frequency response..
Connect your speakers and then power up the amp last
after double checking there are no shorts on the speaker
cables.
All the very best from Vintie.

Once you open the speaker it will destroy the acoustic properties and make the speaker useless. The speakers are assembled with takp and glue and have to be pried apart.

How to connect speakers to sony dts receiver strde935


The front and centre speakers need bigger cable, so the 3 pair of connectors can take thick wires. The satellites need tulip plugs, because they need less power. c7118031-3f7f-4f21-84a9-bff8010fd3d2.png

I have a Rowe R80 jukebox and after moving it it has no sound through the speakers I am in New Zealand


Well, in addition to all the fine suggestions that are here, I would like to add the simple and easy things that may have happened during the move.

IF YOU ARE NOT GETTING A LOUD POP WHEN THE MACHINE IS POWERED ON.......

1) Make sure that the wires on the terminals below are still connected to the screws. There is one ground and one each for left and right. The lower the tap the lower the (max) volume of the jukebox.If they are not connected there will be no sound.

There is a jumpers on the terminal strip where the volume control connects. Make sure that these connections are correct and tight. Also make sure that the jumpers did not fall off.

If you are getting the loud pop in the speakers when the power is turned on .....

Check the plug on the side of the mechanism, just below the back of the tone are.(looks like a little tube socket) Check to see that it is connected to the mech and the CORRECT PLACE on the amplifier. It mat be possible to have this end in the wrong place. bf77613e-82a3-4e37-b8fe-cc80f4d4dbcb.jpg

Check all all your connections against the pic.

I hope this was helpful.
