Depending on what you mean by 'blown' .
a kit is available to replace the surrounds that anyone with a mild sense of mechanical abilities can do.

If the cone is frozen , you may need to buy a new set of speakers.

Have you looked at the manual?

The NEW thing doesn't work.

Does the subwoofer work for setup? That would certify the hardware and speaker definitions are ok.

The PC has the responsibility for defining and sending out something between headphone and full-blown 7.1 though the HDMI. Check your PC sound controls and the "Information on HDMI" section of the manual.

For the radio mode, probably the only analog stereo source you have, read up on the STRAIGHT decoding mode and Sound Field programs.

One of my polk audio RT800i tower speakers began smoking while watching tv I quickly disconnected it and it no longer works. how can it be fixed?


Since they're not self powered I wonder how much audio power they were absorbing at the time or maybe how mouch distortion, as THAT kills speakers faster than clean power. The only things that can burn up are the crossover and the individual drivers. I can't find anything about a fuse, which almost certainly would be blown, or should have. A blown crossover probably wouldn't affect the woofers. You COULD access each driver and test each with an ohmmeter for dead short or infinity.

Hey , with the Onkyo TX-NR1000 can I get started plugging two speaker while I gather enough money to buy the surround sound speakers. Also your opinion on speaker choices is greatly appreciated. Thank you.


Sure you can only connect 2 speakers. As for brand recommendation Polk audio makes some fine sounding speakers also Klipsch, Boston acoustics, too many to suggest. If you have a Best Buy near you they usually have a speaker room with many different brands that you can listen to. Though that doesn't mean you have to buy them their. I'm partial to Polk audio though. Polk has excellent customer service. That's going to be a tough decision you should really do some research on the internet for cost to quality references. Good luck. I hope this gets you pointed in the right direction.

Sherwood Rx4050r and right speaker has crackling noises.


Ahh, that channel is blown. Its not 100% blown. This has happened to my freind before, and from my long knowlage in audio, the channel is blown, and is not fixable. If you REALLY are attached to it, you could probably bring it to a shop that fixes receivers, but best bet is to let it go

Sounds like you popped the voice coils in the speakers when you overloaded the old receiver. The system shut down to protect the speakers, but it didn't shut down in time.

Time for new speakers or to have the old ones re-coned.

Good luck

No sound from back speakers


Remember the rear speakers are called surround... Did you select surround on the unit? if it says stereo then you will only get fronts, select surround to get the rest.

I have a set of RM300 Polk sub-sattelite speakers. Have had them for some time and still love em but.... The foam surrrounds on the bigger sattelites have disintegrated. Polk says too old cant fix. ...


Yes they can be re-surrounded. It is not that hard, it just taes some practice. How big are the speakers? Look for a local speaker repair shop. They are few, but still exist. The hardest part is finding the correct surround. As long as the remainder of the speaker is in good shape, you will find these to be good as new once done. FIrgure about 2-3 days to complete the job properly.

When I had problems with my VSX-D608, I resorted to downloading the manual for VSX21. This model seems to have the same features in the ELITE form. It has helped me figure out some speaker problems.

Setting up a Yamaha RX-V690 home theater system


you almost have the exact same situation i am in. i have the same receiver, and going to purchase a panasonic 50" (th50px75u). i think what i will be doing is running a hdmi from my hd cable box to my tv, and installing an audio cable (red/white) from my tv to the receiver. i believe there is an audio input below the hdmi insert. i have polk audio, but theyare about 10 years old, they sound great, but just too large....and may be purchasing a harman kardon system. which models do you have from polk? i have the rt16's, cs350ls center, and fx/500 rears. let me know what you have come up with as well...as it has been a while since you posted this.

cheers,
sean
