When you feel that the center channel is low compared to the other speakers, you can go to set up, speaker set up and then level calibration. here, you can actually adjust the volume output per speaker up to +12. So in your case, try to increase the db of the center speaker and see if that will help you hear it better. Hope this helps.

I have a Yamaha HTR 6180 reciever and 2 AR 328ps speakers one of the speakers when turned up with shut the reciever down I did a prosses of elemination and took each speaker out of the tower individually...


A capacitor is more like to fail than a coil, so I would also suspect a cap first. Capacitors conduct high frequency more than low frequency, so this may explain the extra load and shutdown on high frequencies.

I have a Pioneer VSX 823 - K, and when I hook up my Klipsch HG-12 300 watt subwoofer to it, the receiver is prone to overheating or just shutting off with too much bass. Is there a fix to this?


This is receiver thermal going in protect issue and has no bearing to your sub, The sub has its own power amp and not supplied by the receiver. Thermal module may be bad. See a tech.

My home thatre plays doalogue at a much lower volume than the backing sound.


Get into the manual for your unnamed electronics and be sure you have the center channel defined and configured correctly for your speaker complement. Test it with the (presumed) built-in tones.

Concerning my Sherwood RD-7500 6.1 Channels Receiver


That still doesn't make much sense. Please slow down and say what you mean with detail and accuracy. We're not mind readers. You are our eyes and ears.

Is the following true?

"Video 1" video output goes to the TV and works ok. Though it is irrelevant since you don't have a video problem. That you mention it at all is distracting. Do you feel it is important?

Tower speakers are the main or only speakers. Do they work ok for other sources?

So, to be clearer, you have a problem with a particular sound source (the game console) being less loud than usual. Is it unusable or drastically different in level than other sound sources?

Where and how is the game console connected for audio? Can you move it to another input?

Have you considered that the game console or its settings may be the reason volume is lower than usual?

Speaker set up question


I generally only use 2 tower speakers but the extra 2 could be used for rear or surround speakers. Set up your home theatre like a box. Use 2 towers at the front on either side of the TV. Your surround speakers should be in the middle ground (if your couch is in the center of the room, that means to the left and to the right of your couch). Your rear speakers should be similar to your front speakers, just behind you or a little off to the side. These inputs are clearly labelled on the back which is handy. The only thing you're missing is the center speaker, which goes right under the TV. I recommend getting one because this is the speaker that outputs most of the sound for speaking. The 606 has a really handy mic setup program, which I recommend using (it configures the volume for each speaker based on the distance from your seated position). I hope that helps you out!

Partial sound from my JBL E60 Towers


Are there 4 inputs on the back of the speakers? If so, you either need to hook up all four, or connect the upper and lower inputs to each other. The speakers come with gold plates that connect the upper and lower inputs, but you can just use speaker wire to connect them. At least that is what I did on the used set of speakers I bought when one plate was missing.

Technics SA-DX950 surround sound problems


The most likely culprit here is the output protection relay. The contacts are a little corroded and the higher volume "jumps the gap" temporarily "cleaning" the contacts. The relay should be changed. I don't have the manual with me, but the following relays are in the unit. One of them is the speaker relay:

Part # Cost
RSY0054-C $12.63
RSY0040M-0 $ 5.89
