SOURCE: HI ,

Impedance must be matched to have a better sound performance. Althought, it has no problem b/w 4 Ohm and 6 Ohm impedance-it still work but the system may get hotter due to impedance mismatching. You can try and see how the sound goes.

How to connect my JBL JRX 115 speaker to my Yamaha RX V673 receiver


You would use a standard banana plug to either a 1/4 phono or speakon plug. The JBL JRX 115 has both on the back. All the outputs on the Yamaha RX V673 have banana plugs. The channel you plug into would be up to you, there are many choices and they are listed on the back of the unit.

My speaker isn't working properly.


Hello sir, hi there, usually speakers are replaceable if its not working, if the value of your speakers are quite high, you may need to rewind the voice coil, or find a replacement voice coil for it, much better you need to replace the entire unit. Here are some test to confirm if your speakers are busted. 1. get a double A battery. 2. connect the negative terminal to the negative of the battery using a black wire. 3. connect the positive terminal of the speaker to the positive of the battery intermittently with a red wire. 4. you should hear clicks. no clicks it's busted. replace the driver.
test for voice coil free flow. press gently the cone, and feel the free movement, if you feel friction or scratches, replace the driver.

Does onkyo HT-s3100 supports 4 Ohms speakers from JBL(control 1)


Palaboy is incorrect. JBL Control 1 speakers are 4 Ohm 150 watt speakers. He's probably thinking of the Control 1x speakers which are 8 ohm 80 watt speakers.

If you hook your Control 1s to that Onkyo, it won't sound great and could cause the receiver to overheat and trip the protection circuit if played at high volume.

I am available as a sound system designer.  Your request is a bit simple.  Given the complexity of the situation there are way too many factors involved to give a simple one or two paragraph solution.    Installing a sound system involves several areas of expertise.    1. Acoustic analysis of the venue. 2. Analysis of the electrical system. 3. Budget! 4. Procurement. 5. Rigging 6. Operation and maintenance protocols.      Fixya is an advise site for do it yourself solutions.  If you want advise. My advise is to find a consultant, pay them to give you a sound system design, buy the equipment new or second hand. Hire a competent sound engineer, carpenter, rigger, licensed electrician who can build and install your PA in your venue.  Best of Luck!

I have a set of JBL JRX125 (s) and the high end won't work on them. Not sure if I blew a fuse or the cone or what. The only audio I can get to come through them is low end.


Hi hoit

They will have either blown high frequency compression driver, or the lamp mounted to the crossover board has failed. Best way to check is pull the horn flare out of the speaker box, and check the voice coil of the HF driver(JBL2412). I think they are 8 ohms from memory. If they are shorted, or more likely open circuit then this is you problem. If they appear ok, then check the lamps. The lamps are there to protect the horns from being overdriven, odd lucks means I have seen it work the other way.
If the JBL part is too pricey for you (they are for me), you can get aftermarket replacements from many places for about $40 each. It is a replacement diaphragm that you need for each HF driver.

I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, please get back to me here, or use the ASK function to go straight to me :) If you are still unsure, have problems, or we need to look at the situation more deeply, then before you give a rating for this advice, hit the ASK button Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you.

My Peavey Impulse 200 speaker is intermittant. Horn works fine.


There is a switched speakon plug in there (bi-amp socket).
The switch connection can go intermittent. Take the back panel of and solder links from +1 to 1+n, 1- to 1-n, 2+ to 2+n and 2- to 2-n. That often fixes it, but you lose the bi-amp capability (which hardly anyone uses)

Trying to hook up jbl sr4732 speakers the highs are to loud compaird to the bass or lows. im only using a onkio with a 100 watt per speaker.


These JBL speakers are not made for a home stereo reciever. It could be part of the problem.

I do know that they have a high frequency input and a full range input on each speaker.

I am going to guess that maybe you have them connected to the high frequency input.

Are you using 1/4 inch jacks connecting to the input of the speakers?

I don't remember these speakers having a input for wires.

You may have another issue using these speakers with that reciever.

The JBL speakers are 4 ohms each, it is very likely that the onkyo requires 8 ohm speakers.

Look on the back of the Onkyo where the speaker jacks are at and see if it says anything about the minimum impeadance.

The impeadance is the ohms. Most home recievers are not designed for anything less than 8 ohms. Some are, but most are not.

Using 4 ohm speakers on a system that requires 8 ohm speakers can cause damage to the reciever. Mostly at higher volume levels, it will cause the reciever to overheat and shut off, maybe short out a channel. It pulls 2 times the amount of current thru the output transistors as 8 ohm speakers.

Let me know if this helps you or if you need more help.

I have a jbl eon G15, which is now not powering on. Probably happened when being powered off, with the volume up... This has happened before in the store, and was fixed in minutes...I guess a simple...


The fuse is accessible by removing the amp module from the back. The fuse location will be obvious. Replace it with the same type of fuse and you should be OK.
