Pioneer VSX-815 speaker wiring

I have a Pioneer vsx-815 receiver. I'm confused about some statements made in the manual. It says to use the screw terminals for the 7.1 surround sound. I had rather use banana plugs, but it seems to read that the banana plugs are for a second set of speakers and I will only get stereo sound if I do that. Is there a way to play the 7.1 suround sound through the banana plugs?

You can hook them up either way, the banana jacks are good for hooking two speakers to one terminal (ie one through the botton, one banana) but the electrical connection is the same either way. Sometimes the banana capable jacks are on speakers A and speakers B, and the surround don't accept banana plugs, your stuck with how your reciever is wired.

"enter and advanced surround keys"? I don't see that documented as a special function in the manual.

BTW: other than the Flashing light, is there a malfunction?

Page 72 describes how it REALLY resets...

Use this procedure to reset all the receiver's settings to the factory default. Use the front

2 While holding down the TONE button, press and hold the STANDBY/ON button for about three seconds.


3 When you see RESET? appear in the display, press ENTER .

OK? shows in the display.


4 Press SYSTEM SETUP to confirm.

OK appears in the display to indicate that the receiver has been reset to the factory default
settings.

Where do my subwoofer speaker wires get hooked up to on the back of the reciver vsx-815 ??


Hi there, the Pioneer VSX-815 amplifier only feeds out a mono LINE LEVEL output with the subwoofer signal. Therefore you would need to connect the SUB PREOUT jack at the rear of the unit to the "line level input" on a self-powered subwoofer. Hope this helps.. Cheers, Yusuf

Pioneer VSX-815-K receiver with sub in standby


Have you looked in the manual?

No sound from subwoofer. • Make sure the subwoofer is switched on.
• If the subwoofer has a volume knob, make sure it’s turned up.
• The Dolby Digital or DTS source you are listening to may not have an LFE channel.
• Switch the subwoofer setting in Speaker Setting on page 40 to YES or PLUS.
• Switch the LFE Attenuator Setup on page 61 to LFEATT 0 or LFEATT 10.

My speakers arn't working with my new t.v.


Any sound from other sources ie. a CD/DVD unit, Tuner etc.? If so then the issue is the signal path fron the TV to receiver, What cableing do you have from TV audio output? Try standard analog 2 channel to the receiver tv in, be sure you select TV on the receiver mode,also check the TV sound menu options, some require that you disable TV speakers and use the audio line-out option fixed or variable.
