Question about Pioneer HTP-2800 System

1 Answer

Sound Problem When I installed the system the sound was very loud going all the way to 0. But now it only goes up to -10. I cant figure out how to make it go to 0 again. I tried all the buttons on the remote and receiver and nothing happened, and the manual didn't really help.

Re: Sound Problem

The amplifier must have an individual speaker volume controller that allows you to set different volume levels for each speaker independently, find it and set new levels.

The TV and process the sound differently so the echo is a just a time smear. You shouldn't actually need to augment the HTS speakers with (ugh) TV speakers.

As far as comparative TV-sound loudness goes, if you drew it from the Cable Box to the audio system I'm sure it would be the same as your other audio. TV

How Loud Can it Go?

I don't know if I ever installed a sound system to any concert fan who didn't ask me this question. So how loud can I safely play my sound system?

If you have a receiver or amplifier that has an analog dial that goes from 7 o'clock to 5 o'clock the majority of units will output maximum volume at around 1 o'clock assuming a line level signal is sent to it (again it varies a lot from piece to piece). Anything higher then that and the unit will send out a distorted signal colloquially referred to as "clipping". Most modern units now use digital volume controls and everyone is different. The only way to detect this distortion is listen to when the music sounds tinny and harsh instead of clean and musical.

If you do not find it is loud enough for your liking you must invest in a more powerful amplifier or higher efficiency speakers; or you will continue to destroy your innocent speakers and blame them for your over driven amplifier.

My child messed with the settings on my 321 bose

Reset all EQ settings to 0 for a starter. It sounds as if it is EQ'd down all the way.

To everyone having sound trouble... there is a solution! First make sure your TV is OFF. Unplugg the 2 main cables going into the DVT 412 for 30 seconds. Then re-plugg them. Press down for a few seconds on all the BLACK tabs connecting the sound wires and release. Without a disc in the player... and the TV still OFF, turn the power on and immediatley hold the down the STOP button on the DVT412 for 5-10 seconds. Your picture, vocal and backround sound will return to normal. Feel free to make changes to the sound now! Happy tuning... GO STEELERS! LOL!

A loud buzz sound when the surround sound unit is powered on.

There is most likely a voltage regulation fault, or some filter capacitors that are going defective. It would be best to have this serviced before the parts fail completely and cause some damage.

Surround sound not working through ordinary tv

Try connecting the red and white audio cords to your system from your cable box/satellite receiver instead of your tv. Worked for me.

Audio problems with DVD on surround system

- 82k  ^  0k  is normal   it is called consumer output. when you go into the + zone   that is studio grade pro audio.  so this is not your problem... i think  either you have a bad output or bad speakers...... try some other speakers,but careful !  not to blow them with loud volume  if they are not set up for this unit.  hope i could help   also try other on board sound settings when trying other speakers       imanfix

Systems shuts off if sound gets too loud.

Yes, i had this same problem. If it was too loud, at level 37+, any loud boom would shut down the subwoofer, subsequently shutting down the speakers. As such, I figured it might have been the 8 pin dim cable, but that wasn't it. What solved the problem was lowerin the BASS level. Not the level on the subwoofer, but the actual BASS level. I had it at +10 (the max) and it was too much for the system to handle. I don't think I ever had it like that so I'm assuming someone, maybe my daughters, moved the settings. But anyway, moving the bass level back down to either 0 or +3 at most maintains the "boom" effect of the subwoofer minus the shutting off of the system.
