I have always used Monster flat wire as it can be placed under along the carpet and the wall without leaving bumps under the carpet and it can also be painted if you need to run it exposed up a wall

How do I get this system working properly again?


Here's what I would do:

1) Wherever you get sound, hook up each speaker in turn to validate they are working. If you have another, known working system to do this with, even better.

2) While testing your speakers on the known good system, once a speaker has been proven working, validate that your sound source (and cable) is working by using it as a source once everything else has been validated.

3) Now that you've isolated and proven everything but the receiver, put the receiver in stereo mode and try it out as a simple left/right amp. Once you get this far you will be able to do the surround stuff, but only with a surround encoded (ex: AC3) data stream.

If you need more help, just ask.

Yamaha RX-V793 receiver shuts down when I turn up volume. Checked the speaker wires and they seem okay. I then hooked it up to an older DVD player I had and it works fine. Don't know if it's 5.1 bu


My first thought would be that when you moved the receiver to connect another DVD, the problem quit since the speaker wires moved. The best way to test would be to re connect the original unit the same way as the new unit and test again. If it still cuts out, disconnect the speaker wires and re test. if it still cuts out, try the new player and test again. if it does not cut out, there may be a problem with the old units audio output. Generally if its a problem with the receiver it would not matter what source you are using, even the tuner on the receiver, if there was a short in the receiver it would cut out. Let me know what your results are and I will help more if needed. Best of luck!

I have a fisher ca-9335 integrated stereo amplifier thats hooked up to sanyo tp 1010 turn table and plays out of yamaha ns-70t speakers. a simple jvc cd player is also hooked up to the speakers but not to...


Something doesn't add up. You mention two connections to the speakers - CA-9335 and a "simple jvc cd player". Is that true? If so, you might want to UNconnect the CD from the speakers and run it into the receiver where it belongs. An amp isn't designed to share the load with another live device; or even have electrical contact with anything BUT speakers.


Did you actually find documentation that supports this hook-up? Or just winging it?

I hook my rxv795 and found my rear speakers although going were quiet ,have i got problems in my receiver ?is it blown,help please


If you've set up the speaker levels according to the manual (you DO have the manual, right?) and the rear speakers worked then, maybe your program material has little audible surround going on.
It's not blown.

Only one centerback speaker


First off, I would like to say congrats on the receiver purchase - it's a nice one. To get true 7.1 surround sound, you will have to run another wire to another speaker. Any of these listening modes that you want to get are most likely using the capabilities of these 7 speakers. If you were to hook up one speaker to the two rear surround channels, you would be defeating the purposes of having that extra "speaker" and not really be gaining anything. If you really do want to access the 7.1 listening modes, you could always hook up another speaker and just hide it behind your TV, depending on your setup (essentially tuck it in a place where it wouldn't be heard, close to the receiver so that you don't need a long wire run).

In answer to your specific question, there would be ways of doing this, but just not all that advisable - you'd be posing a hazard to your speaker and/or the receiver. Like I mentioned, I'd recommend going through the trouble of running another wire and hooking up an additional speaker for the rear surround. If you're going to be using a Bluray or HD-DVD player, it'll be worth it. Hopefully this helps to somewhat answer your question.

Speaker Hook Up - Non-Technical (single) Female


bought the same amp second hand and had same problem as there are two seperate amp chips inside one for front speakers and one for the centre and rears it could be the actual amp chip that drives the front speakers has died as there is no built in speaker protection so over driving these speakers will result in the amp chip blowing . it may be something simple but it was not on mine had to buy new amp chip and solder in that sorted the problem for me !
