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.

Sounds like there is a problem with the amp. Try switching the inputs around for that output on the amp. If that does not help, Yes I would have to say that there is a problem with the amp output circuit.

Power light


Hi Bill, I believe the power problem is related to the Remote wire which should be blue or yellow. The remote wire is suppose the turn the Basslink on and off when the radio is turned on and off. The yellow wire is normally used for power antenna. Traditionally the remote wire is blue. You can use a Speaker level adapter and splice in with the L/R rear speaker wires, and the adapter will convert the speaker level to line level. The output of the adapter will go to the Rear speaker input on the basslink., Write back if you need more detail on the adapter.

My Sony home theater video center speaker don't work.


Check the connections between the speaker input on the rear of the unit, and the cable to the speaker itself, ensuring there are no weak spots or cracks. Check to make sure the centre speaker is securely connected to the correct port/socket on the rear of the unit. Also check settings of the surround in the unit's setup option - and if the display shows speaker icons and the centre one is not illuminated, it is probably OFF, or the selected mode/function does not require that speaker. If this is the case, change the function using the unit's function (mode) button, either on the front, or via the remote. (some home theatre systems have multiple modes/functions, for example MOVIE, DYNAMIC, DTS, 2 CH stereo, etc.)

It is also a good idea to do a 5.1 surround test - some DVDs have this as a bonus setup feature, but you can do this with a normal audio source, such as from a DVD or a TV program. You should hear a sound from each of the speakers, and if the unit has a volume control or each speaker does, make sure these are set to a relatively equal audible level.

If after trying the above, you still get no sound from the centre speaker, it is possible either the speaker itself or the unit has a fault. If it is the former, consider replacing the speaker. If it is the latter, this could be expensive in terms of parts and labour - as service technicians charge an arm and a leg for repairs to the amplifier circuit in these units.

In any event, try the basic, simple steps above before considering any further action. It could just be a faulty speaker, a bad connection, an incorrect connection, or a mode/function setting is wrong, causing the speaker to be OFF.

1999 Audi A4 Rear Speakers


The large block is a factory amplifier - in your car (as was in mine) you had a partially-amplified system. The front speakers were driven at speaker level from the head unit, but the rears were fed a line-level signal from the head unit to the amp, which then boosted to speaker level. The harness then sent the speaker level signal to each rear speaker.

What you can do is fit your new head unit. The fronts will interface perfectly with no issues. For the rear, run new wires from the adapter harness at the back of your head unit, back to the new rear speakers, and connect them directly. Then everything will work as it should.

Chevy Tahoe radio wiring problems


I had the same problem and here's what fixed it. By default, I did not connect the blue/white striped remote wire to the harness. Apparently there is an amp somewhere in the vehicle I did not know about. After looking at the factory wiring and the aftermarket harness, I noticed that the remote wire was used and I connected it with the remote wire on the harness and everything came up and worked perfect.
