Re: Can i use small satelite speakers with my big front...

Hi, I asume your setting up a home theater with five speakers a center left and right and rear surrounds don't know if you have a subwoofer. The large speakers in the front will work fine if you set the amp to large front speakers the bass will be sent to these. If you have a subwoofer set, the amp to small front speakers and the bass will be directed to it. Also try to get a center channel speaker that sounds somewhat like your large speakers.

Most likely an Electrolytic capacitor. If it doesn't go up or down with the volume control, it will be the big one(s) in the power supply.

Hi i have a mpa 5150 when it warms up their is a static sound on the right front speaker. Any idea what is causing this ?

I have the same problem only its the left front speaker. I took my mp 5150 amp to a professional and he told me the problem is a modulator or the MU-1 part. This is a special part on the board that is designed by Monster and no one will have in stock. Each amplifier in this unit has its own MU-1. I am currently waiting further information.

Need a fuse for Sansui stereo amp I purchased at a yard sale. Radio shack cares the fuse but doesn't know exactly which one.

Difficult question. Which Sansui amp? You could start small, say 2A, increase by 1's till it doesn't blow or if that is too expensive, 2, 5, 8, 10, 12, 15, get the idea? Just don't start big and expect it to work properly, the fuse that is, it is supposed to blow, not "let the magic smoke out".

Speaker linking

You know, watts is a heat dissipation unit... It tells nothing about your speaker, the usage you wanna do with it, and what about the amp! Usually on proffessionnal amplifier ( i mean touring power amp) we rely 2 speakers in parallel per side of amp. It turns the amp working at 4 ohms and ifs it pushed by a good amp, and a reasonnable operator, things goes find. If amp ''clip'' it sending DC in the speakers and you actually in the way of a repair. So its now having too much power amp that usually breaks speakers, but too small amp. Check the specifications of what your amp can gives at 20hz to 20khz, both channel driven at 4 ohms. You find out that the amp you believe was sending you 500watts is giving you only 250... Thats why pro series of amp cost so much. Because they are not playing on words but giving power... Cheap series of pro amp counts wattages at 4ohms one channel driven at 1khz at 1% distortions wich is unnaceptable. 0.1% is the max acceptables. Go meet the tech at your local big touring sound contractor and ask for the real thing. You'll get the right answer and analysis of your kit...

Do a websearch for a competent repair shop in your region or ask the stereo folks where you got the amp.
It WILL need surgery.

Arrangement of speakers

First you need to put speakers in horizontal line and high where you will be seating. That must be your center point. Focuses all speaker in that point. Subwoffer must be in fron of you and the central speaker. With satellite do what I say for center point!
Good luck

Channel has switched off.

Make shure speaker wires are not crossed at amp or at speaker terminals. Check balance control is at center. Check sound with headphones to see if final amp to speakers is the problem. Try switching imputs on back panel from right to left see if same speaker is on,.Try all loudness controls and tape dubbing buttons to see if any are dirty.
Good Luck
