Question about Technics SA-EX310

1 Answer

Can't get surround sound to work. Only the front speakers.

When using the back speakers on the surrond L R's they won't work. However I know they work because when I plug them in to the front speaker outlets they do work. I need a user manual or?

Denon receiver not working surround output

If everything is connected correct, the only thing I can think of, is you don't put in a surround signal. If you only feed 2 way stereo, only two speaker will work. Also if you switch to stereo, the other channels will stop working. Check the cables, the settings and the input.

I have a Fisher RS-909 Surrond Sound amplifier. It has no "sub out" jack. I had the sub-woofer working in the past by wiring it as shown in the manual. The problem is that the system was in...

Alright i had a chance to look over things, this is how you are going to hook up the sub. first we'll be connecting the surround sound unit to the sub woofer.
surround sound unit sub woofer
left front: positive (+) <-----to------------->(+) left speaker level in
negative ( - )<- - -to- - - - - - ->( - ) left speaker level in

right front: positive (+) <-----to------------->(+) right speaker level in
negative ( - )<- - -to- - - - - - >( - ) right speaker level in

now that the surround sound unit is connected to the sub woofer you will need to connect the front surround sound speakers to the sub woofer.
sub woofer front surround sound speaker
left speaker level out (+)<-----to--------> (+) left front speaker
left speaker level out( - ) <- - - to- - - - ->( - ) left front speaker

right speaker level out (+)<-----to--------> (+) right front speaker
right speaker level out( - ) <- - - to- - - ->( - ) right front speaker

Alright now that the wires are all over the place and plugged in
turn everything on and see how it sounds. let me know if everything is working as it should. if you need help with anything else or if something does not seem right please feel free to contact me via e-mail or phone

Does not go in surrond mode it only play stero or direct sound.

Some models can detect the speakers attached. Do you have all 5 speakers connected as required for surround sound?

Left channels do not work when using surround modes

Ohhhhhh, so it has NEVER worked for YOU and it needed fixing when you got it. That changes everything. And you don't have the manual??

You can find the manual on Just register and download it. You're going to need it to make use of this unit anyway.
Make sure everything is connected correctly.

Look it over and play around with it. Speaker setup needs to be done before anything else. Did you get the microphone that comes with it? If not, go to page 23 and start there.

I have a vizio tv, sony dvd player and direct tv. i also have a denon avr-1905/785 surround sound receiver. i can't get the surrond sound to work while watching tv but it be comes through if i am watching...

If your TV has audio out and your surround sound has an audio in you need to get a lead to connect them together, most of them have - then you just select the Aux on the DVD/surround player (or whatever the input is called on the back) and everything comes through your speakers. If you only have headphone out jack on the TV it will mean you won't have your TV speakers working. I hope this is not really obvious to you and it was the first thing you tried!

Kenwood VR6070 speaker/amp problems

unit needs repair. Look at the b speakers. Conect a speaker or two to the B position. If you have no sound than your surrond sound is ok and the unit is bad. Sound comes directly into the b speaker and not threw the surrond system. My 6070 has a cold start up problem. no sound. time to purchase a new one. to costly to repair.

How does Logitech X-540 speakers connect to a laptop?

You connect the green cable from the subs (the green one of the three, the other two being black and yellow) to where your headphones or speakers go into your laptop. Then you make sure the matrix button is activated on the x-540. This will make sound come from all of the speakers and it will use the sub, i.e. virtual surround sound.

To do it properly without using the matrix mode and trying to enable actual surrond sound (with centre satellie being mostly vocal, front two being instrumental/music, and back two being sound effects) then you need to buy an external sound card for your laptop that supports 5.1. I'd recommend the creative x-fi external usb, but only if you have xp. If you have vista, forget about getting an external sound card that supports real 5.1 for now because there aren't really any good and truly compatible ones.

Surrond sound

For Stereo Mode (Front L & R Speaker), you must plug RCA cables (match up red and white) from Output on DVD player to DVD Input on the back of the receiver. Then with speaker wire, run from receiver speaker output (Front Speakers) to designated speaker (make sure + and - match up to both input and output). As for hooking up surround sound, I'm currently trying to figure that one out with just using the L, R and Center. I don' t want wire running all over the place just for rears. Hope this helps
