The right way to Bi Amp on Denon AVR3806

I have found in one review of the AVR3806 that is possible to Bi Amp the front speakers in a different way that is included in the user manual .
Routing the front pre-amps out feedind the VDP imput and assign the sorround back amp to Zone 3 . Then to select the VDP imput to play in Zone 3. Finnaly to connect the speakers terminals of the SBack to the front and right LF speakers terminals. This way let you adjust the volume of the Zone 3 to increase or decrease the LF ratio on your speakers. Is this a better way ?, and most important ┬┐Is this the correct way?
Thanks , Jorge from Argentina

SOURCE: Denon AVF988 to power amp to whole house speakers

jbell302, Check both remote spkers for operation from the A spks output if good, switch B remote spks to A main connect & main A spks to the B remote connection on the Denon spks outputs . Most amp sources do not like different ohm spks types & different cable or spks A-B. lenghts, because this makes up to resistances problems, making the amp to work harder & understanding what is going on. THE AMPS PROTECTION CIRCUIT IS AT ALERT & TRIES TO BALANCE THE RESISTANCE VOLUME. Best move is to try use the same spks. lenght & a higher qauge wire; 12.14.18qa. to better balance the output volume! All matching spks. pairs would help alot as well!

SOURCE: Hi, I have a Denon

zone 2 volume can be adjusted by zone2 remote control (small one which came with the unit) or by main remote control if you switch it to zone2 mode. My main rem control has a slide switch i have to put in zone 2 position to operate zone 2 amp.

Can i bi-wire the front left and right speakers


Not with this unit.

But WHY? Bi-wiring is a myth. Whether the channel's double wires join (dead short) at the amp end or the speaker end makes no electrical difference to the speaker or the sound. But it DOES get you to buy more esoteric wire. Cha-ching for them!!!

But to flip an old saying, believing is seeing (or hearing). Go for it if you want. Someone is always willing to take your money.

I have a Denon AVR 3805 receiver. It does not have a Main Amp in or a pre Amp out in the back. How do I properly hook up the Bose 901 equalizer to this receiver? I use the 901 speakers as surround...


By properly, you must mean WITH the Active EQ.

According to this picture, you're in luck BUT...

(Short answer from personal experience.)

There is no way around this part. Get a separate power amp for the 901's if you want to use them in a multichannel way or alongside non-901 speakers. A good 100-wpc amp will do. (I like Carver)

Connect the Active EQ between the Front pre-outs and the amp input. Run speaker assignment, levels, etc and have fun.

Helpful Hint: If you don't have sufficient between-speaker room for proper reflection off the front wall you CAN turn the 901's around and you won't believe the amount of air these things push! I have actually felt it ten feet away after explosions or crashing ocean wave sounds. Now THAT is multi-media.

Power amp 2 channel connection to Denon a/v amp


You don't mention which AR amp we're talking about.

I think you're trying to say you want to know where to extract the front channels from the Denon to feed the AR amp. Right?

That would be an output on the Denon to an input on the AR.

Basically, take an RCA cable pair from the Denon's Pre Out F & L and connect them to the (presumed) L & R inputs on the unnamed amp.

Set the AR amp at a reasonably high volume (if it has a volume knob) and leave it alone. Run through the speaker level adjustments on the Denon to match the Front to everything else and it will control the volume going forward.

There is no capability to switch to front "B" speakers, the second "front" speaker output allows for bi-wiring a single pair, or running two speakers with identical outputs.

Speaker connection from Denon AVR 2105 to Wharfedale suround


The spkrs sound like they are bi-amp spkrs, meaning you have multiple terminals on the backs of each spkr, the jumpers on the spkrs should be connected as such. Now you just connect the spkrs according to the Denon spkr conection diagram. Do not use the surround back unless you have 6 or 7 pair of spkrs

Denon AVR-2307 Protection Circuit Activated permenantly


The speakers are 4 ohm speakers, a guy on another chat site sent me a link to the impedance curves http://www.audioholics.com/reviews/s...t-v2-fs/page-4

He agreed to that there was a mismatch as the unit has plenty of fresh air around it, plus all the speaker cables have been tested and installed correctly.

So, off to the store where I got it from tomorrow.

Static from right from speaker


The noise is in the pre-amp stages of the Denon AVR. It might be caused by bad capacitors.
