check to see if the radio is clear. If it is it may be the signal going into the amplifier. if it is muffled as well, depending if you have an Equalizer hooked to the unit. This also could cause the problem. Finally check the bass, treble balance and volume knob but turn them back and forth while unit is on and see if signal clears up momentarily. if this is the case the control knobs need to be cleaned. Also spin the connection jacks {RCAs} in the rear and see if this clears it up. If not you may have to have the unit serviced by a professional.

If all others had been fine before this problem arose, and you are sure that you haven't changed anything in your amplifier's channel selection menus, the problem might be deeper to solve! Try these out; 1-If the amplifier has a test menu to check out all channels plugged in, activate it. You must be able to get sound, which is like rustle, from each speaker. 2- Check your plugs, cables etc. be sure that there isn't any short circuit 3- Grab your amplifier's remote control and find the "channel selection menu" that allows you to increase and decrease volume levels for each speaker independently.

Did you press the "TEST" button on the remote? It will send some white noise to each speaker that is hooked up, one at a time.

make sure speaker voice coil are still good...continuity checks will confirm far as 6 channel hook up, you need to know what the lowest impedance allowed is from your system and then wire up your speakers in series /parallel to come up with a final impedance that will very closely match the systems minimum output impedance

You have asked a big question with lots of possible answers.

I am not familiar with your receiver so I don't know the important things about it - such as the power output and the required speaker impedance.

There are other important things to consider too, such as where you live, are there close neighbours, what sort of noise do you like to make and how loud and equally importantly how much room do you have; are the speakers to stand on a shelf, on the floor or be suspended from the ceiling?

Generally the bigger and more solid the speaker cabinet the better the sound is but that would be useless if you have room for only bookshelf speakers.

You said budget speakers. If you want quality sound then budget speakers are the last thing you need - you would be better going to buy some decent used speakers from a garage sale or buying yourself a couple of decent drive units and fitting them into a pair of concrete drain pipes or even lavatory pans or constructing your own cabinets or if you have lots of space just a pair of infinite baffles.

If buying used speakers there isn't much choice; you have to have what is available within reason but if you are buying new it is best to know what you want. There are two basic types of cabinet - the infinite baffle, a closed air-tight cabinet that if well constructed and big will make mediocre drive units sound better and the fashionable type just now, the tuned bass port cabinet that must be well designed and have decent quality drive units.

Both those types could house one, two, three or even four drive units and perhaps a crossover and/or peizo tweeters.

I suggest you do some research and sleep on what you have learned and then ask your question again including a great deal more information.

Pyle PPHP159WMU: Just received this used unit and the bass speaker tends to cut out the louder the volume is set. Does the battery have to be fully charged for the unit to function properly?

The speaker may have a current sensing device to avoid damage under high volume conditions. Also check the setting of your bass control. Every 3 db increase in setting doubles the power going to the driver and it is easy to over drive the unit at high volumes if your bass control is not on flat.

How to hook up Panasonic SB PM19 speakers to SA-PM23 reciever

yes you can. these are called "bi wired" speakers which means there's a hook up for the woofer and the tweeter individually. If your amp have just 2 speaker hookups it's no problem to hook the woofer/tweeter wires of each speaker together. If your amp had 4 speaker hookups, you could put the tweeters in 1 and the woofers in the other but it will still work fine with 2 speaker hookups.

My speakers are playing through the tweeters only (i think). there is no bass whatsoever, but the speakers do not sound blown. i have tried adjusting all of the bass that i know of. the model number for...

For all we know you have the speakers defined as 'small' and all bass from their channels is being redirected to a subwoofer. Have you looked at the manual and adjusted all the speaker levels with test tones?

My bass part of the pro 150 is working but not the tweeter part...whats gone wrong the diaphragm looks goog so im confused are there fuses in them for seperate tweeter bass etc..thanks hope you can...

Tweeters blow pretty easily. Access the back of the tweeter and touch a weak battery across it's leads. It should click if the coil isn't fried open or shorted.

I have the stereo except for speakers sony SA-H7900. what to do

hi ,
as far as i understood you, you need speakers for the stereo mhc-h7900? so the originals are the sa-h7900, active (built in mono amplifier) and they have electrostatic tweeter plus some special kind of bass-control system called i not remember now. in this case maybe impossible to find some, but you can connect any kind of "active" speakers, even a crappy active 2+1 subwoofersystem would do it to get a sound out of it.

I have cambridge soundwork tower speakers and if I turn the volume up , the receiver shuts down to standby mode. Can i dissable this

It's a safety feature of your receiver. It will go into standby when you turn it up if there is speaker wires touching or a short somewhere in the speaker wire. Or could be a short in one of the drivers (tweeters, mids, bass drivers) voice coils. Firstly check to make sure there are no strands of speaker wire touching each other between positive and negative on speakers and receiver hookups, this is usually the problem

Wiring speakers to denon avr 3802

Those are not compatible speakers for this unit. The Denon receiver does not have any speaker outputs for that type of speaker.

The Denon speaker outputs are full range outputs. Your speakers are not designed for that, they need an amplifier that has seperate outputs for the highs and lows.

By using these speakers you will probably damage them and they will not sound very good as well. The tweeters will end up fried and it is also likely that if one of the speakers goes bad, it will blow one of the channels in the amplifier.

If you really want to do it anyways, and don't say I didn't warn you, you could connect them using the "A" and "B" speaker outputs. Connect the woofers on one set, lets say "A", and the tweeters on the other, lets say "B". Right channel "A" would be the woofer and right channel "B" would be the tweeter for one speaker.

When listening to the unit you would need to engage both the "A" and "B" speaker to hear anything from both speakers, there are buttons on the display for the speakers marked "A" and "B" and in the display you would see little icons that light up when the speakers are engaged.

I can not stress it to you enough that this is not a good idea to use these speakers with this type of receiver. Do this at your own risk and be prepared to pay about $150 to $200 for the repair bill after the amp blows a channel.
