Question about Onkyo TX-DS656 Receiver

2 Answers

I want to run remote speakers from this unit to my bathroom.

I see where there are remote speaker connections in the rear of the unit. I have connected the speakers, then I tried to press the remote button on the front and the remote control. However, nothing came out of the speakers. What should I have done or yet still do?

You need to hit the multi-source button, then the soucre (fm/video.dvd etc) and then turn on the remote speakers

You may need to turn off the surround sound. Your receiver probably uses the same amps for remote speaker as it does for the surround speakers.

Why is there no sound from rear speakers?


One of the buttons you pressed probably disabled surround sound

Not familiar with the model. Remote speakers are just added speaker option if "main" speakers are not used.
Main (livingroom speakers) or Remote (bedroom) or both can be used via switch. Just observe impedance your unit may allow.

The answer is "Yes"

Speaker buttons don't function correctly


The Speaker A and Speaker B buttons select pairs of speakers. If you have connected a pair of speakers to the "SPEAKER A" terminals on the rear of your Onkyo receiver, you will hear stereo sound when the Speaker A button is pressed on the front panel. If, for some reason, you wanted to connect a second set of speakers in the same room or perhaps another room you would connect those speakers to the "SPEAKER B" terminals on the rear. Pressing both buttons on the front panel would send sound output to both sets of speakers

I've had my Denon AVR-2308CI receiver for 3 years and last week I turned it on to watch a movie and there is no sound coming from my rear speakers? I have a 5 speaker set up (3 in front and 2 in the rear)...


On the front display of the unit, you should have indicator icons that light up if a speaker is being used. Are there only 3 speakers lite up, or are there 5? As a quick check, make sure your speaker connections are secure, and then make sure your surround mode is set to a 5 channel surround mode. 5 channel Stereo is a good one to test with. Also, you can hit the "test" button to see if the speakers are connected and working, it will give a test signal out of each speaker independently. Let me know what you find, and I can answer more.

My left rear speaker has no sound. All others work. I have tested the speaker on a different reciever and it works fine. My reciever is a integra DTR 5.5


Swap your left and right rear speaker over. If you still get no sound from the right speaker connected to the left speaker connection on the receiver, then you have a fault on the receiver output. Check your manual first to see if any setting switch off the rear speaker before taking the unit for repair or replace

Speaker connection from Denon AVR 2105 to Wharfedale suround


The spkrs sound like they are bi-amp spkrs, meaning you have multiple terminals on the backs of each spkr, the jumpers on the spkrs should be connected as such. Now you just connect the spkrs according to the Denon spkr conection diagram. Do not use the surround back unless you have 6 or 7 pair of spkrs

How to install Rockford Fosgate 3sixty.1 to a Toyota factroy head unit?


You will need a line level adaptor to get an audio input for the amp.

A line level adaptor is a device that lets you tap off of your speaker outputs of the radio and it converts that signal into the proper level for an RCA input signal the amplifier uses.

If you are installing the amp in the trunk of the car you can just tap off the speaker outputs of the rear speakers mounted in the trunk. Keep the speaker outputs connected to the speakers, just run an extra set of wires from them to the line level adaptor. It will not take anything away from the speakers sound because it is not a power drain on them.

After that, you just connect the power wires for the amp as you would normally and you also need to run an extra wire from the radio power antenna wire to the remote turn on of the amp, or you can use a wire directly from the battery and connect it thru a switch you would need to connect somewhere around the dash, so you can turn the amp on and off when you need to. The power antenna wire from the radio is best, so you don't need to turn the amp on and off manually. It is easy to forget about turning it off sometimes and that would run doen your battery if the amp is left on over night even with no signal going thru it.

Then connect your speakers to the amp and thats it.

Then big issue is getting an audio signal to the amp and the turn on signal for the amp.

If you need more help let me know,

Dave
