Re: cant get 4000 watt lanzar amp turned on

They're bridged together to get power...idk why it's like this but it was like that on my TIS 1800 for the life of it and i had to remove the fuse to turn it off since i had no ignition wire to the head...just bridge the remote with the power and u'll get power and it'll work fine

Hy, my 901 speaker no workin' property with my harman kardon 247 receiver

Since tha Active EQ is designed for use ONLY with the 901's you'll need a separate power amp to drive them in a multichannel environment. I'd get something like a Carver M-200 (2x100 watts) or larger. That's what I use.

This receiver makes it easy for you.

This is exactly how mine are connected.

Run a pair of RCA cables from the Front L&R PRE OUT to the Active EQ's Line IN; then the EQ's Line OUT to a separate amp's Line IN. Attach the 901's to the new amp, run through the receiver's setup procedures for volume, etc and you're done.

Try not to connect or replace with the other 3 ways speakers, if your amp indicates not overload then the problem is in your crossovers, becareful, feedback to your amp could make it demage

Is it possible to connect my PC to my outdoor speakers? I want to play music outside using my PC. Is there a special connector that I need?

There are a couple of ways to go about this. The first would be to locate a similar computer speaker system set up outside - provide power and extend the cable to them - if not too far. When you want to listen to the outside speakers, plug the cable into the headphone jack of the computer. Adjust volume and enjoy.

Another way, would be to buy (or build from kit form) a low power FM transmitter. These devices are available in mono & stereo types and will play over all FM radios and stereos in a 50 to 300+ foot radius (depending on antenna, wall construction, transmitter power, etc.) when they are tuned to the transmitter frequency. These can be found for under $100 or built for as little as $30 or so. The upside to this method is that the music is available over ALL radios nearby.

Still another way is a wireless speaker system. This works like the FM transmitter, but will only work on these particular speakers. These will require power only - but some will work from internal batteries as well as AC power. The system includes a small transmitter, power cord & cable to plug into a headphone jack - all for use at the computer, and two speakers - each with a power cord as well and possibly a remote control.

Use of a spare pair of old stereo speakers will probably not work as the computer's sound card rarely develops more than a watt or two - and most home speakers require 10 or more watts to be driven properly.

Wharfedale 10inch cude subwoofer that has a feedback hum when con

Hiya, try a different input cable (from amp to sub) if you have make sure that is ok.

Failing that if there is an earth in the plug, try to disconnect that (earth loop) - unlikely but hey electronics.... anything possible :)

If still there with new cable, earth off etc, then the Yamaha could have a problem but find that difficult to swallow...

Let me know if helps, see any other possibilty
Best of luck

Subwoofer to receiver hookup

In general, there are two ways to hook up your sub-woofer. First using the high level outputs from your receiver ( speaker output from the front R & L speaker terminals ) run a set of wires from the outputs to the speaker inputs on the sub-woofer, you do this in concert with the speaker wires going to the front R & L speakers which you then attach to the R & L speaker outputs on the sub woofer amp. Note that the sub woofer doesn't power your front speakers, the connections from the sub amp are just a pass through connection where the signal needed by the sub is parasitically taken from the inputs.
Second is via a low level output from your receiver / amp to the low level input on your sub amp. This is normally done via a RCA type of patch cable and connected to the sub woofer RCA jack on the rear of the source receiver or amp, Next run the patch cord to the sub amp an into the RCA jack input. IF you have a right and left input, use the Right input.

Peavey impulse 1015 horn cuts in and out

If the horn cuts out after some usage ...then its probably the limiter lamp that is gone .... the limiter lamp is switched into circuit once the " polyswitch " gets hot .... so at first the horn works ...then when the limiter lamp is switched in ...nothing !

Sub and amp problem

You should get power even without the RCA cable.

I believe you should take time and check your connection.
please use the right cable for your sub. you need the right cable
to boost the sub. Check radio shark or Sam Ask for better sub cable.The better one don't come with your system.

Good luck

Amp wont turn on

Sounds like a fuse issue in the power from the amp - the remote circuit could be and probably is completely independent. haven't been able to find confirmation on this, but if you are confident to take the cover off then check (probably)around the area where the power terminals are there may be some fuses. Hope this helps, ask again if not :)
