Feedback on speakers when I plug them into computer

I don't know if feedback is the word, but it sounds like when a guitar player makes that terrible noise on stage by accident when I plug in my Bose companion 2's into my computer. You know that sceaming noise.

Is there a microphone also plugged into or built in to your computer, and is it enabled? If so, be sure to turn it off ..

I cant get sound from my tv thru my ht-r380 reciever

This is most likely a connection or switch problem:
  • Make sure you are plugged into the appropriate sound out jacks on the TV
  • Make sure you are plugged in to the appropriate sound in jacks on the receiver
  • Make sure the source for the receiver is set correctly
  • ensure volume is set appropriately
  • ensure correct speakers are selected.
If you are playing a DVD, the input to the receiver should come from the DVD player

From your description, it sounds like there is a break in the wire. If you can find where the break is by wiggling the cable, it can probably be repaired. Be sure to have the volume turned on low, however, so you don't damage the amplifier.

Many speaker systems use RCA style connectors (shown in the attachment). If it uses these, you can buy them at a local Radio Shack store (or online). You will also need some speaker wire (20 gage or 18 gage is best).

If you are able to do electronic soldering, you can make a replacement cord yourself. If not, and you know someone who can do it for you, it is an easy job.

That would be the most economical solution to fix your problem. If this doesn't work for you, you'll have to find out what kind of connectors are used on the cable and do an online search.

Good luck! marc_uhrey.jpg

Page 10 discusses speaker connection.

Disconnect everything but the speakers and evaluate the buzz. It may be coming from external hardware or loosely connected analog cables.

Sometime juts rotating the ac plug on one device eliminates the ground loop buzz.

If your sound card supports 5.1 and your Panasonic supports 6 channel input then you should be able to do this with extra cables and changing some settings on your computer. Your sound card should have three "headphone" plugs on it. The cable you are currently using for front speakers is likely a 3.5mm to RCA cable. You will need two more of these. With these you will have your 6 channels, or, 5.1. All you do then is tell the sound card driver that this is how you want it to output and it will tell you which cable to hook where.

Otherwise, you have have a single coaxial digital out on your sound card and this is probably best.

Which you use should depend on which component has a higher quality DAC.

Yamaha Mg12-4fx 12-Channel Mixer

ok look here on page 21 & 22 of 32

section #5," ST output"
the "st out" will go to the amp you have for the mixed sounds

section #1, "line or mic input"
this is the input for the guitar or a mic , but only one(mic or line ) per input # at a time

I have a Yahmaha MG12/4 mixer or whatever and a speaker

heres a link to the manual for your mixer (big file)

to connect a guitar to a mixer you really should have DI box (direct injection) its matches the imbalances between the mixer and guitar for proper operation. If you have a guitar pedal this usually works as well. but if you just want to make it work plug the guitar into a channel input NOT INSERT. hope that helps

I've just got a tascam dp01cf recorder and i'm having trouble with it, its abit hard to understand what to plugs in were, i'm using a electric guitar,a yamaha magicstomp effect pedal and a amp. also i'm...


You have a couple of options with your guitar input. You can either plug your guitar directly into the right (Hi-Z) input and use the Tascam's onboard effects with it instead of your effect pedal.

You can put your pedal in the chain between your guitar and the (Hi-Z) input. So guitar into pedal is, pedal out into Tascam Hi-z in. (Still doesn't use the amp).

Or my preferred method for recording guitar would be to mic the amp. In that case you'd just input a microphone (placed about 8-12 inches from your amp) and record your guitar that way. The mic would be plugged into either one of the Tascams two mic inputs to record the amps speaker output while your guitar, pedal and amp would just be hooked up in the normal way.

Please note: Never plug the output from an amp into any of the Tascams inputs. Those inputs are line-level and the speaker output level which comes out of an amp out would damage your Tascam.

To get a backing song into a track in your Tascam, you'll have to first, using a PC, get the song into a 16 bit mono Wav file format. Then you'll have to use the USB import function to copy that wav file onto your Tascam onto the CF media cards fat partition. From the you'll be able to import it into the Tascam choosing which track it will import into.
