Question about Panasonic SC-PT660 Theater System

2 Answers

Speaker wire I have a Panasonic sc-pt 660 Home Theater and the surround speakers don't have enough wire to reach the receiver. I'm hesitant to cut the wires because of the clips on the end that attach to the receiver. Any reccomendations? If I do use speaker wire what gauge should I buy??

Use the same gauge that is supplied for the rear. Probably 24 gauge.Do it with the power off. If the wires touch with the power on the rear output IC will blow. Good Luck

Panasonic SC-HT730 home theatre has no centre or surround audio. Front right and left work, nothing else. What could it be?


First thing is to check the wiring. a simple flipping of the positive and negative at the back of the theater box can fix this. I know they have the color coded wires and suppose to be plug and play but I see these reversed all the time right from the factory. If that does not work repost and I will follow up.

I bought a panasonic home theater (open box). the only problem was that it was missing the speaker cables. panasonic wants $166 for the cables! any place elst that would have them or the plastic...


According to the manual the speaker cables are as follows...

1 Speaker cable (center)

[REEX0858-L (green)]
2 Speaker cables (surround)

[REEX0860E-L (blue)]
[REEX0868E-L (gray)]

2 Speaker cables (surround back)

[REE1488 (brown)]
[REE1489 (tan)]

The only things that makes them unique are the unique molded connectors. Hardly $166 worth. You could buy a 100' roll of 18-gauge speaker wire or lamp cord and 5 molex connectors at Radio Shack for a lot less.

If you took the base unit in I'm sure they could help you find a compatible connector and pins.

Just purchased SBHS100AE-K rear speakers to connect to my SC-BT100. I want to connect them wired rather than purchase the wireless transmitter, but I can't figure out how to connect the wired rear speakers...


This unit is not as flexible as traditional receivers are as far as speakers are concerned. Speakers are labeled and *must* be connected to the correct speaker terminals.

Upon reading the manual - it is quite apparent that the only provisions for rear surround speaker connections is <i>only</i> via the optional wireless transmitter / receiver hardware. The optional digital transmitter is connected via a proprietary plug on the rear of the SC-BT100. The optional receiver amplifies the received signal and passes it to the connected surround speakers. I would bet that there are no provisions for amplifying a surround L and R speaker channel inside the SC-BT100, and that it only provides a low level (like a "tape out") or un-amplified signal to the transmitter plug. Even if you were to manage to get the surround speaker connections made up there - you would not be able to hear anything from them - as there is no amplifier. The amplifier is contained in the wireless receiver, and is largely why it requires a connection to house current.

Unfortunately, I doubt you'll find a way to listen the surround channel audio from the SC-BT100 without the optional transmitter / receiver and the integrated amplifier.

You can review the manual like I did here:

I hope this answered your question.

Add 2 speakers outside on a 6 speaker surround sound and hear all


You won`t get surround sound mix with 2 speakers, you can have a 2nd zone but this will only play a "Stereo Sound" if you have that playback option with the SC-RT50, what you will need is a speaker selector switch or better known as an A & B switch, this will ideally run from the front left and right speaker output of the receiver into the A & B switch then run into each pair of speakers inside or outside, what is common nowdays are receiver that are known as 2nd zone connections where you can have 2 sets of speaker in different rooms, unfortunatly the SC-PT50 does not have this option.

Panasonic SC-Pt 660


I fixed the main problem. It has inputs, not labeled as such. one set right next to all the outputs labeled only aux.after plugging in to the TV outputs, and putting the unit on AUX, this was fixed. The surround speakers were harder to work out, After downloading the manual, I was able to get sound out of them, however at a lower level than all the others. Even following the speaker level adjustments in the manual, cant get more volume out of them...I'll keep trying.
