HTR-5930 Speaker A/B setup

I have a Yamaha HTR-5930. I have the ability to hook up speaker A to play in one room and Speaker B to play in another. I had an older receiver hooked up and it worked fine. I can't figure out if I have a setting wrong. I have them plugged into the front speaker left and right but only get sound out of one. It only works in one room, speaker a controls left speaker, speaker b controls right speaker instead of both working but in different rooms.

    I only want speaker a or b to work one at a time. It is only working in one room, not the other. When switched to speaker b nothing comes out in the other room. It ust switches which speaker it comes out in the main room.

    I believe they are single channel. They are speaker wires that I put into the back.

  • asgamer Nov 22, 2008

    I have it hooked just on the front speakers. The main room only has 2 speakers and the 2nd room has 2 speakers for left and right. But I can't get it setup to recognize the other room. It seems like there is a setting that is setup correctly.

  • asgamer Nov 22, 2008

    I have pushed the speaker button and the display shows me which one is one. Speaker A is suppose control the main room, while speaker B controls the 2nd room. But Speaker A is controlling the left speaker and Speaker B is controlling the right speaker. So it is not controlling it by room only speakers. Again, I had an old receiver with A/B speaker setup and it worked fine. Now the new one I can't get working properly.

    I know that I don't need a splitter my other receiver didn't and was much older. This was hooked up in another home with the exact same setup. Each room only has 2 wires left and right speaker. So I have both rooms with the left and right speaker wires hooked up. Somehow the sound isn't coming out. These speakers were pre wired when it was constructed.

  • asgamer Nov 22, 2008

    I understand why you think that but I unhooked the old one and hooked the new one up within minutes. And the fact that when speaker a is on, it should come out of both left and right speakers in that room but doesn't, only comes out of one. When Speaker b in on, nothing comes out of the 2nd room speakers but in the main room where only 1 speaker was working, when b is selected the other speaker works. So it is only working in 1 room, not the other and flipping between a and b is only switching sound from the left and right speaker in the main room and nothing in the second room. I hope this helps.

    When I do this for thewires for the swecond room the sound still comes out the main room.

Dear Sir/Madam,

You are describing a traditional "A-B" type of speaker setup, when what you need is a "main-remote" type of setup. A receiver which is capable of driving a main system (the surround one) and a remote, 2 channel system in another room. You would just have both sets of speakers in the same room. Many mid to high end surround receivers have this capability, though some don't have the needed amps for the remote system built in.

Thanks
Good luck

What you need to do is take one speaker that you know works and try it on every output on the reciever
If the speaker works on all the outputs ( L & R , A & B ) on the reciever , then there is a wiring problem
If the speaker does not work on all the outputs , then there is an internal problem in the reciever

Dear Asgamer,

please let me try to help. I have an older Yamaha receiver and comparing its conections to HTR-5930, I have noticed that there is a difference on the way Yamaha place the "plus" and "minus" plugs.

On HTR-5930 the wires are connected with the positive on top and negative bottom. On other receivers, negative and positive plugs are placed side-by-side.HTR-5930 Speaker A/B setup - e6cf110.jpg
The picture shows how speakers should be connected. "+" on top and "-" below, instead of "+" on the left and "-" on the right.

You don't have to set anything else to make it work, just press Speaker A or B switch to have your speakers working the way you want.

Hope you are satisfied, if not, please let us know.

Marcos

If the whole speaker unit is working before in your old setop then its not the problem of the connection which you had made and nor the problem of the unit/device.but it is quite possible that the wires in the room which r set in the room from when it was constructed are getting cut somewhere or r loose internally .the wires needs to be checked internally by the electrician.as if the wires will not allow the speakers to play how can you get the proper settings as you want/require.
this wires are many times the culprit in this types of systems,and u go on changing the settings in the machine but nothing happens.just get this wires from the wall checked out and make it proper this will solve your problem.

thanks.

Interchange the wires of speaker A in the sockets of speaker B.and wires of speaker B in the socket of speaker A.then check out.does the same problem.tyr inserting the wires in all the sockets 1 by 1.any 1 of the setting will definately work. and there is also a splitter system  which is having a very simple theory and works great for this types of system.and its not at all costly.also gives proper sound quality..

Speaker A and B works in either way in this model.
Speaker A has only 2 speaker set connection where as Speaker B has 5.1 channel output.
Check below mentioned rear view of your Yamaha receiver.

    Seems speaker A and B settled in series when you select A+B option in your receiver.

Are A and B single channels, or stereo connectors (eg, jack).

It looks like on this model a and b speaker outputs can not be ran at once. You can always get a splitter from radio shack and just split a main speaker output and plug in both of them to that one output.

The signal that comes from most tv's via the optical output is a stereo signal only. That is what your receiver is reading. You would have to manually set your receiver to decode the signal into surround,.

I have a Yamaha HTR-5930 Home Theater Sys. Somehow, I've managed to lose my right channel when watching T.V. (dish network), but when my son plays with the XBox, he gets full surround stereo. Any ideas?


The XBox is probably hooked up separately to the amplifier, try cycling the inputs on the amplifier. If that doesn't work replace the cbale between your amplifier and tv.

Yamaha RX-V463 Receiver Speaker Setup


That receiver has A and B channels. Look for the Speaker button and press it until B appears on the diplay. The other room speakers will play the same thing as in the main room.

Trying to hook up Zone B stereo speakers in two additional rooms.


The infrared mentioned by the manual is most likely an extension possibility to use the remote control in each room, forget that part.
What you need to do is quite simpel, after connecting all speakers, you should indicate in the setup menu of each zone which speakers are connected and do as follows:
in main room select 5.1 setup, for the other zone select only the left and right front speakers.
Your EXTRA SP indicates the extra speakers for 7.1 setup and when set to zone B it recognises only 1 speaker.

So read carefully the manual how to connect Zone 2 speakers and connect that way, than carefully walk through the setup menu to setup the zone 2 correctly.

We want to hook up eight speakers in eight differnet rooms (one speaker per room with individual volume control) and hook them up with yamaha RX-V1800 receiver so that we can play all the speakers in...


Hi...
Without a huge mess, I would suggest one of the multi-speaker selectors that partsexpress.com sells or a similar item.
Just put "speaker slector" in their search engine.

If youre going to 8 other rooms..you might try a couple of wireless speaker systems too. They work in stereo and ....no wires

No video signal on Yamaha HTR 5930


On , HTR-5930, composite inputs are routed only to composite outputs. The same happens to component input. You can't see video from V AUX if your TV is hooked-up on component output. Also, check if you connected correctly GREEN, BLUE AND RED on both receiver and TV SET.
