How to use 7.1 HT for 2 rooms ?

I have recently bought a 7.1 HTS . I want to use only 5.1 in the main room and put 2 speakers in another room. My question is which 2 speakers should I use for the other room ? The ones meant for the side or the rear ones ? Also if I play my HT in 7.1 mode with only 5.1 speakers, will it cause a problem ? Thanks in advance

You might want to take a look at your workmanship and back it off or just disconnect the speakers to see if it is the cause.

Samsung HT F5500W The system worked without a problem. I painted the room so I had to disconnect everything. After connecting back rear speakers does not work and the link light on wireless box is...

with the main unit off. Press and hold the link button on the back of the rear wireless amp until it starts blinking fast. The take the remote and while pointing at the main unit, press 0-1-3-5 enter. Wireless link ready should show on the display. Turn on the main unit, and it should find the rear amp.

Bose link AL8 will not connect with the Lifestyle homewide powered system

Your v35 system needs to be programmed to work with the second zone wireless unit. Read the instruction manual how to do it, or let a Bose dealer set it up for you.

Hi, we just bought a new Samsung 46 inch Smart TV and a Samsung home theatre system HT-D5530.. I just want to know how do I get the TV sound to play through the surround sound system?

First, is the unidentified TV the actual source of audio (self-tuning from the air) or does its programming actually originate externally, say, a Cable Box? What does the TV's manual say?

If the sound actually comes from an external source treat that source like any other hi-end audio component and attach its highest quailty audio directly to the HT according to ITS manual.

NO signal ever benefits from multiple connections or 'hops' and it gets expensive zig-zagging a signal all over the room. K-I-S-S is the word of the day. Run the BEST version of any signal directly from its source to the BEST electronics that will present it to you for consumption. The separation of audio and video inputs and outputs on a device is what allows and ENCOURAGES the direction of each signal to the BEST electronics that can process it. Example: your TV does not have the best speakers in the room so why send it any high-end audio?

I bought an onkyo hts-5300 it has grave reviews for sound. Yet it is not producing what i feel it should,what is the ideal db setting for the speakers for crisp sound and deep theatre style bass

"Grave" reviews??

If you set it up as specified in the manual it will be optimized. As far as volume settings while listening go, that is subjective and entirely up to you, your speakers and your neighors.

My subwoofer doesn't seem loud enough. I have it set to 80%. Is there other settings that might solve this problem?

Bas response is highly dependent on room boundaries, speaker placement and relative listening position.

Page 13
"Place the subwoofer at the corner of the

room. Otherwise, keep it at least one
meter away from the TV."

You might experiment with moving the sub around.

Philips Home Theater Speaker Wire (can it be cut?)

Sure you can, Joel.

Put the speakers wherever they will go, and cut the wire from the speaker to whatever length you need to reach your wall terminals. Leave some slack so you can move the speakers if needed. Strip off whatever length of insulation you need to make the terminal connection. Note that the speaker wire will have some kind of polarity marking. There will be a colored stripe or other mark on the insulation, or the conductors themselves may be different colors (usually one wire is copper, and the other tinned so it's silver colored). It doesn't matter which you use for positive as long as you're consistent and use the same one for each speaker.

At the other end where the prewiring comes out for your home-theater system, splice the connector ends you cut off onto the installed wires, following the same polarity. I recommend using an appropriate size insulated **** splice to make the connection. The crimper and splices can be found at auto parts stores, Radio Shack or most hardware stores. It's quick, reliable and makes sure there are no bare wires to short out.

Plug the speakers into the system and you should be good to go. Whip up some popcorn and enjoy the show!
