Any luck with checking antenna connections? I have a service manual if you need it. Tuner section in this old girl predates the LM7001. Uses ha1137-38 chips, bit more complex to repair.

I think what you are looking at is referred to as a banana plug connector. You do not need to buy these connectors to make this work. If you unscrew the plastic connector out far enough, a hole from the side opens up so you can put your copper conductor through and tighten the plastic peice down. The banana plug is probably better for easy connection but using this method is just as good.

How can I stop my AM/FM receiver from over-loading my speakers and fuses?

do you think your receiver could be a electron tube type ? (that's old) if so your problem could be impedance .

most modern speakers are set to take an impedance of 4 ohms ,, when if your amp has tubes its set to use a 16 to 32 ohm impedance (speakers and amps impedance has to match or distortion will result ) impedance matching transformers can be used to help match load to amp
also speakers need to be rated for there use in wattage , if your speakers have only three amp fuses in them assuming there 8 ohms impedance then they are rated for a max wattage of 88 watts(peak to peak) any more and the voice coils will be damaged from overheating (putting twenty amp fuses in them are a sure way to do exactly that)

also a simple test one can do to older amps is to temp shunt the input together with a speaker connected as a load on output , then slowly increase the volume , no sound (hum / buzz) should be heard or any damage to speaker should occur , if either then there are parts inside your amp that is defective and is damaging speakers

Will 12 watts run these speakers? I'm thinking of buying a vintage Panasonic RA-6600 Receiver and read it only has 12 watts per channel. Thanks George

No, furthermore, UNDER-powered amps are more dangerous to speakers than over-powered ones since they begin to distort badly at much lower power outputs. Distortion kills speakers.

Low volume on left channel of Sony STR-GX4ES

The headphone is tapped before the final stage of the amp, so knowing that those work properly helps to isolate the problem. I think that this model uses an IC for the voltage amp section prior to the final amp stage. That being said, the IC is probably an UPC2598 (if memory serves). I'll confirm tonight. Try resoldering any connections that appear to be grainy or have rings. Let me know what you find.
