Question about Sony STR-DE695 Digital Audio/Video Control Center

1 Answer

Low sound output from Front Speakers

There is good sound output from all the other channels (center, sub, surround) but the Front L/R are much lower (softer). I've done all the normal Set-up and Levels adjustments per the manual instructions. I've tried swapping the speakers, the speaker wires, and the Video unit sending a signal. I've tried resetting the system. I've tried using the 2-channel setting to by-pass the Surround decoding. I've tried using headphones (and the sound was very low). It doesn't matter what I've tried, the Front Speakers are always much softer than the other speakers. What is the problem?

There might be a levels adjustment in the setup menu for distance or something, might check that before opening unit up.

SOURCE: Sony HT 6500 receiver...center speaker jack

try to spray contact cleaner into the speaker port itself.. Powered off of course.. let it dry and try again.. this will clean any connectivity issues due to bad contacts.. as far as replacing jacks.. try the suspected "bad" speaker and wiring in another port.. if it works then the speaker and wiring is good and you have to check actual jack in which you were asking and back to auto amplifier circuit or transistors.

This is a common problem that a lot of people have with this system. The problem is in the connection of the Left and Right Speakers to the receiver. I had this problem too.
What you need to do is actually open up the receiver using a screwdriver. Once it is opened up you will see a circuit board and lots of wires. Look for the red and blue wire that should be pretty easily visible. Cut each one, then strip the ends some, and reattach the ends but to the opposite color- make sure to solder it as well. On some models they messed up the connections and it got switched. Once you do this, the left and right speakers should work great. Hope this helped!!

SOURCE: Cannot hear rear channel on Sony STR-DTE325

First off, you want to correctly isolate what or which channels are/is bad. Use one good known speaker. Connect that speaker, one channel at a time, and test that channel with a fixed volume level (don't adjust the volume when you check each channel). Isolate the low level channels and make note of it. Note: each channel has their own amplifier. Once you've isolated the bad channels, take it to a repair shop and tell them the bad channels. They will then locate the circuit and narrow down the search to fine the problem - it's usually a bad solder connection. If it blows fuses - more likely a shorted transistor. In your case it's a bad solder connection.

Hooked to surround sound, two front speakers, 4 wall speakers, 1 sub woofer. Restart unit and reduce volume unit is OK but normal talking is too low.


Voice tracks are usually routed to the center channel. You don't mention having a center channel speaker hooked up. If this is the case, then you need to go into the receivers setup menu and set it for no center. This will reroute the voice tracks to your front speakers.

I have the following setup: AV Receiver: Pioneer


Very common problem with today's receivers. Receivers made today don't have a true preamp section in the amplifier and do not amplify the sound to the extent of an older receiver. I have large 15" front speakers on my system, and have stuck with my 15 year old receiver just because I know that a new receiver will not have the power to drive them well. Many of the newer receivers need to be turned up to 50-60% before you can even hear anything from the speakers.

You have a very good system...one of the best of SONY..SUB does not get activated automatically especially on STEREO mode.DIRECT STEREO Notes • No sound will be output from the subwoofer.
.your system has Dedicated Power Amplifier for 2 Externally Driven Sub-Woofers (200W RMS x 2)..in order to activate the sub woofer amplifier you need to make a selection on the surround modes while you are switching the modes of the surround you will see the speaker position on the display of receiver as well..if you do not see the sub woofer it wont be activated..Sound Field Program (A.F.D) is a good example to test it..

Additionally please follow the instruction on your user manual to activate the SUB ,as is follows..

-----------------
BASS-OUT
Low-frequency (bass) signals can be directed to the
subwoofer and/or the front left and right speakers
according to the characteristics of your system. This
setting also determines the routing of the LFE (low-
frequency effect) signals found in Dolby Digital or DTS
sources.
Choices: SWFR (subwoofer), FRONT, BOTH
• Select SWFR if you connect a subwoofer. LFE and
low-frequency signals from other channels are directed
to the subwoofer according to the speaker settings.
• Select FRONT if you do not use a subwoofer. LFE and
low-frequency signals from other channels are directed
to the front speakers according to the speaker settings
(even if you have previously set the front speakers to
SML).
• Select BOTH if you connect a subwoofer and you want
to output low-frequency signals from front channels to
both the front speakers and subwoofer. LFE and low-
frequency signals from other channels are also directed
to the subwoofer according to the speaker settings. Use
this function to reinforce low-frequency signals using
the subwoofer when playing back sources such as CDs.

I have installed the z 640 but I get no sound at all


  • Verify that all cables are plugged in correctly. Make sure the rear and/or center/sub audio cable is plugged in to the correct port. On most surround sound cards, the rear audio port is black, the front audio port is green, and the center/sub audio port is orange. If you do not have a surround sound card, make sure you obtain the proper adapter (discussed in the next paragraph) or use surround sound emulation if your speaker system offers it. If you are not sure if you have a surround sound card, please check with the manufacturer of your sound card for details.
  • Make sure your sound card supports the same amount of channels as your speaker system contains. For 4.1 systems, it should have a front and rear speaker jack on the card. For 5.1 systems, the card should have a front, rear, and center/sub, output. The card should be properly installed and configured. Please contact your sound card manufacturer for details. If you do not have a surround sound capable sound card, you can use the M3D button on the controller unit (if you own a z-560 or z-540) or use the source selector switch (if you own a z-5300 or x-620). If you do not have any of the models above, you can use an adapter to split the signal for the front and rear speakers. This type of adapter is a 3.5mm male to 2-3.5mm female jacks. You can purchase this adapter at your local electronic store. Please refer to your manual if you do not know if your speaker system can emulate surround sound.
  • Try connecting the speakers to a portable sound device such as a walkman or portable CD player. Plug the speakers into the headphone jack, but make sure the volume is lowered so the speakers are not over powered. You can do this for both the front, rear, center/sub speakers to verify that they work. If the speaker system works on the walkman, then you are experiencing a configuration issue with your sound card. Please contact your sound card manufacturer.
  • Check the system Volume Control located in the System tray. Make sure that the volumes are at a reasonable level and are not checked for Muting.

configure ur PC (both OS audio and third party sound driver) for surround sounds. control panel- sounds and audio devices - speaker settings - advanced - speker settings. so this done. make sure u select the 6 input channel - the button is on the right edge near the volume knob. near the vol button there are two buttons for selecting input type with up down arrow. from that u can select the input type this will be indicated on the top front indicator. but with the 6 input channel selected all selections are preceeded. if u select stereo mode u will have left/ right audio only.
