Question about Kenwood VR-409 Receiver

Primary speaker output jacks don't work

The alternative left/right and center front speaker outputs work, but, if i connect to the primary jacks, there is no output. As there are no alternative jacks for the rear speakers, I cannot get all five channels for surround sound.
thanks for any suggestions

I don't know how to use behringer feedback destroyer DSP1124p


Determine where in the mixer's signal path to connect the unit. Your options are:
1. One or two individual microphone channels via the mixer's CHANNEL INSERT in/out jacks.
2. The monitor mix output via the mixer's MONITOR OUT jacks.
3. The main mix output via the mixer's MAIN OUT jacks.

  • 2 Connect a balanced cable with the appropriate connectors from CHANNEL INSERT OUT jacks on the desired mixer channel to INPUT RIGHT or LEFT on the Feedback Destroyer's back panel for individual microphone channels. Connect a balanced cable with the appropriate connectors from the OUTPUT RIGHT or LEFT jacks on the Feedback Destroyer's back panel to that mixer channel's CHANNEL INSERT IN jack.
  • 3 Connect a balanced cable with the appropriate connectors from the mixer's MONITOR OUT jacks to the INPUT RIGHT or LEFT jacks on the Feedback Destroyer's back panel for the monitor signal path. Connect a balanced cable with the appropriate connectors from the OUTPUT RIGHT or LEFT jacks on the Feedback Destroyer's back panel to the monitor amplifier INPUT jack or amplified monitor speaker INPUT jacks.
  • 4 Connect a balanced cable with the appropriate connectors from the mixer's MAIN OUT jacks to the INPUT RIGHT or LEFT jacks on the Feedback Destroyer's back panel for the main mix (FOH) signal path. Connect a balanced cable with the appropriate connectors from the OUTPUT RIGHT or LEFT jacks on the Feedback Destroyer's back panel to the main amplifier INPUT jack or amplified house speaker INPUT jacks.

    Need help installing speakers to receiver


    On the back of the receiver you will find the connections for the right and left speaker, OR if it is surround sound you will find, right front, right rear, left front, left rear, and center or bass. The connections can be RCA type jacks or they can be wire clip type.

    Depending on the connections on the receiver and on the speakers, the wire will have to match the connections on each end. The wire needs to be large enough to handle the power output of the receiver. Wire can not be too large but it can be too small. Larger wire is more expensive, so there is no benefit in purchasing excessively large wire. Packaging should designate the power handling capability of the wire. The wire should not be much longer than is necessary to place the speakers where you want them. Too long wire unnecessarily cuts down on the power to the speakers. Don

    Conncet a sony sub to a denon reciver


    Depending on the model, there are two ways to connect a subwoofer to an amplifier, receiver or processor. The best way is to connect the subwoofer to the SUB OUT or LFE output of a receiver, but some subwoofers can be connected to the speaker level outputs of the receiver or amplifier.


    1. How to Connect a Subwoofer to the Subwoofer Output


    The preferred method of connecting a subwoofer is through the LFE or Subwoofer output (SUB OUT) of a receiver. Almost all home theater receivers (or processors) and some stereo receivers have a subwoofer output. The LFE (Low Frequency Effects) is a special output for subwoofers and is often labeled 'SUBWOOFER' not LFE. 5.1 channel programs on DVD discs have a dedicated .1 channel output with bass-only content that is best reproduced by a subwoofer. Connect the output of the LFE or Subwoofer jack to the Line In jacks of the subwoofer using a single RCA cable (the two jacks on the left in the photo). A 'Y-Cable' may be necessary to connect the LFE output to both the left and right channels of the subwoofer.

    2. How to Connect a Subwoofer to Speaker Level Outputs
    Some receivers and amplifiers do not have an LFE or Subwoofer output. In this case you can use the speaker outputs of the receiver to connect the subwoofer. Using speaker wire, connect the left and right channel speaker outputs of the receiver to the left and right channel speaker level inputs on the subwoofer (the speaker inputs on the right side of the photo). Using speaker wire, connect the left and right channel speaker outputs on the back of the subwoofer to the left and right channel front speakers.

    Hope it helped..

    I can hear the music when playing dvd's on my Spectoniq dvd player, but can't hear when people talk. Can anyone help me?


    Yes, I can help you. Your DVD player should have output connectors in the back of it to plug your amplifier or receiver into. If you have a Stereo system (no surround sound speakers, or front center speaker) connect the DVD Audio Cables on the back of the DVD player to the STEREO Output Jacks. If it is connected to the Left Front and Right Front jacks of the "Surround Sound" output jacks instead of Stereo is that the dialog on is sent to the CENTER channel output. If you have no center channel speaker you will not hear it.
    If you have a surround sound system with two speakers in front and two speaker in back. Then you need to make a change in the Receiver Setup (Which may be set up for 3 speakers in front) so that it is set up for 2 speakers in front.
    The last thing my simply be that you have a center channel front speaker that is not completely connected because of a wire falling off, etc.
    Hope this helps,
    Best,

    Brookstone Wireless Outdoor Speaker with Bose 123 System Problem


    AUX usually refers to an INPUT, such as a CD player, etc. No signal comes out of a standard AUX jack, unless it specifically says "Aux speaker output". Instead, look for another speaker output jack, such as remote speaker, B speakers, etc. You may only have one set of speaker output jacks, in which case you would need to connect your wireless speaker to the speaker output jacks along with your main speakers, or buy a little speaker selector switch box to switch between main and wireless speakers. There's usually no harm in connecting more than one speaker set to the same outputs, though it is technically not recommended. In the real world, just don't crank it too loud and you'll be fine. The wireless speaker MIGHT run off of a standard line output also, if the wireless speaker has its own power amplifier.

    Subwoofer.......


    Please check your model number, I can not find it on the JVC service website.

    This is a powered sub-woofer I think. You need to have a thick black cord that connects the sub to the head unit. Then the satellite speakers get connected to the speaker jacks on the sub-woofer box. The sub-woofer should also be plugged into an A/C outlet on the wall.

    The speaker outputs are labeled right there where you connect the speaker wires. You should see a red and black connector for each speaker and they are labeled "front right" "front left" "center" "rear right" "rear left".

    If you do not have the thick black cord you need to connect the head unit with the sub-woofer, you can not use this system.

    If you look at the head unit and give me the model number on it, I may be able to find the part you need. But I must have a good model number to work with, preferably from the head unit.

    Speakers


    If I understand you right, you have 7 speakers on 7 different channels.
    When you have just 1 speaker connected it sounds fine, but any time you add more speakers it shuts down, or does it sound fine until you have all 7 of the speakers connected.

    Bare with me, and we will figure this out. It is a very diificult job trying to troubleshoot something that is not in front of you.

    After this post, it will be about an hour or so before you will hear from me again, I will be on my way home from work.

    Is this a 5.1 surround system or is it listed as 7.1?

    Do have have any speaker outputs with more than 1 speaker connected to it.

    If this is a 5.1 system, do you have speakers connected to the "A and "B" speaker jacks?

    What kind of speakers are they, and do they say on the back where you connect the speaker wire what ohm rating they are. Most speakers for your home are 8 ohms.

    in case you were wondering what a 5.1 and a 7.1 system is:

    the 5.1 system has front right, front left, center, rear right, rear left and the .1 is for the sub-woofer that is normally a RCA jack output on the back of the receiver

    The 7.1 has all those same speaker outputs plus it has a surround back with right and left channel.

    I will get back to you in about an hour or so.

    Right speaker doesnt have sound


    1ST.-The right jack could be damaged!!
    Usually, there is a [+} posaitve & [-] negative input\output to speaker connections. Not all [-]neg. is ground.Sometimes the [+] pos. is grounded. [The exception to the rule is that u SEE the black wire going to ground] the reason I am letting u know this is that u can test the INSIDES of the sound system.
    If u can get inside of the unit. Cut the left speaker output [+] posative from both outputs. criss\cross wires.Place left speaker output to right speaker jack[ that does not work!!] & visa versa.If the [LEFT Output] stops working after u plug in the speakers,the internal RIGHT output is damaged. NEEDS TO BE TESTED
    If nothing nothing changes.The left still works & the right still does not work, then it is the jack (shorted ?, opened internally ?)
