Question about Audio & Video Receivers

1 Answer

I purchased onkyo 606 receiver and Polk RM85 speakers and Polk PSW110 subwoofer. When I turned the volume on my receiver to max, the system shutdown. When I turned it back on, the sound is very low from the speakers. I replaced the receiver with the same model but the problem is still there.

Sounds like you popped the voice coils in the speakers when you overloaded the old receiver. The system shut down to protect the speakers, but it didn't shut down in time.

Time for new speakers or to have the old ones re-coned.

Good luck

ONKYO TX-SR307. Problem with volume/sound getting lower. "Setup" does not alter / resolve the issue. Please help


Hi, if this has not been resolved please try the following reset:

To do the reset you need to turn the receiver on, then on the front panel of the receiver press and hold the "VCR/DVR" button while doing that press the "STANDBY/ON" button. You will see the word "Clear" in the display screen and the receiver will go into standby mode. PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR AUDIO & VIDEO ASSIGNMENTS ON THE RECEIVER PLUS YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR SPEAKER CONFIGURATIONS, SPEAKER DISTANCE AND ALL LEVEL CALIBRATION SETTINGS. YOU WILL ALSO LOSE ANY PROGRAMMED RADIO STATIONS IN MEMORY. Once the receiver goes into standby mode turn it back on and go thru the setup menu for all custom settings, Thanks, JT

I have an onkyo tx-8255 receiver and i bought a psw-505 polk audio subwoofer to supplement my Boston acoustics cs-26 bookshelf speakers but i cannot get more than the deepest of bass to emit from the sub. ...


The problem is you are dealing with two different brands of speakers, I know because I ran into the same issues you are facing now, I had a Bose sub matched up with two Radio Shack Satellites and sound was not balanced it was awful. Finally I broke down and bought a pair of Bose Satellites and I have never regretted it since. The point I'am making is that when you mix brands the sound will be unpredictable, the problem with most subs is they have a very low roll off frequency even without the crossover making almost impossible to match speakers.

New polk psw110 sub for rca rt2250 reciever


Hi there.
To answer your question;
There is no problem in using both subs at the same time. As a matter of fact you could split your signal in ten and have a sub for each one of them.
You`ll just have to set the subs levels so they match each other and i`d say the more sound to the larger sub.
Just try it at different sound level and you`ll find the correct setting.
Have fun Happy holidays

Reciever turns off


Powering off usually points to issues with speaker setup. You should read pages 42 and 96 of the 606 manual.

Page 42 covers impedence settings. Check your impedence settings for your speakers. The 606 handles speakers from 4 to 16 ohms. There are two impedence settings on the 606 - 4 ohms and 6 ohms. Set to 4 ohms if your speakers are 4 ohms or more but less than 6 ohms. Set to 6 ohms if your speakers sit between 6 and 16 ohms. Incorrect settings can result in the 606 going into power protection after prolonged use or at higher volume.

Page 96 covers testing for unexpected power protection. You should switch off your AV at source and leave for an hour. Disconnect all cables to speakers and other peripherals (TV, DVD et al). After an hour turn on AV and turn volume to MAX, If the AV remains on, turn down volume to min, switch off AV and reconnect all devices. Make sure the speaker cables are properly connected and that no bare wiring is exposed.

Once you have done this switch on the AV and turn to volume to MAX. If the AV stays on then problem solved. If the AV switches off then you should contact your supplier.

Hi We are setting up our new Onkyo TX SR606 receiver but are having trouble with the automatic speaker set-up. The 2 front speakers, centre and the back right speaker are ok, but there is an error...


Hi there. If you are running a 5.1 speaker system, make sure your surround speakers are on the surround terminal NOT ON THE SURROUND BACK. the surround back is only for the 7.1 speaker system.

you may be using an equalizer? try to pop-up the volume with all tone controls in flat mode. see if it still cuts off. if this is the first time youencounter this then something must be wroing with either your speakers or your amp. unless your ventilation is not good enoughg, you can also try placing a blower on top of your unit to cool it down

Onkyo TX-SR304


Onkyo offers access to manuals at their web site. HERE is a link to the receiver line.

Personally, I'd connect the speakers to main left/right. The subwoofer to subwoofer out. The Go VIdeo unit to VCR/Video 1, the cable box to Video 2 and the video output to the Sony TV composite input. No need to connect the TV audio out to the receiver since the audio feed comes from the cable box.
