Question about Onkyo HT-SR800 System

2 Answers

Surround sound I just bought the HT-SR800 but I am only getting sound from the front speakers when I use the FM or AM radio. I am only hearing the front speakers when using an older CD player. When the system went through the automatic setup, I heard the test sound go to each of the 7 speakers. Right now I have speaker set A chosen.

I had same problem with an Onkyo. Turned out I had inadvertantly selected the wrong FM tuning mode - pressed the button to get back to auto - and then the surround processing sent a signal to the back speakers.

It must be about the sound quality need of your amplifier. The sound processor simply needs to get clear signals from sources such as fm/am receiver, dvd/cd players etc. in order to manage'em to give you the optimum surround sound. If the fm receiver has an "FM MUTE" option, I recommend that you turn it on. By doing so, you'll receive only good quality fm stations, furthermore your amplifier will let you get surround sound. The second issue you mentioned has its own answer inside. Use a "new" cd player, you can get optical cables, digital coax cables to improve the performance if you like..

For you to process 7.1 you need another pair of speakers. Your setup is 5.1 If you want to see some different 7.1 setups just google images of 7.1 speaker setups. Seeing it it easier than explaining it. Hope this helps

Onkyo HT-SR800 the surround speakers are not blasting


I had the same problem and fixed it by manually setting the surround speakers changing the Level Cal to +12dB. You will immediately notice a significant increase in volume and may need to back down on the dB's. What a diffence it makes!

as described in the owners manual, set the microphone at the primary listening position at ear level, prop it up somehow, a camera tripod works well, plug the mic into the receiver front port, near and under volume dial, and follow instruction on the receivers screen.

Cutting off and stayin in Stand by mode


To me it sounds like you might have blown a channel(s). The speakers that you are using with unit, did they come with it? If not you need to check the ohms of the speakers. It looks like the Onkyo HT-SR800 can only handle a minimum of 8 ohms. If your unit is under warranty definately send it in for repair

Speakers A Off


Good news. This doesn't mean that anything is (necessarily) broken.

In the middle of the remote, there is an [ENTER] button surrounded by arrow keys. To the top, left of this of this arrangement, there is another button labeled "SP A/B". Turn your system on (and check that the volume isn't maxed out from your troubleshooting) and hit this button. Look for the display to say "Speakers A" or perhaps "Zone A" or similar. You will probably hear audio before you get this far.

If you are still having problems with this, try changing your speaker connections in the back. Attach your two main speakers (Front L/R) to the connections for "Speakers B" (the springed, push down, bare wire connection at the bottom, right). This is just for testing output via Speakers B. If this is as far as you get, respond with more information on your experience.

Only one surround back speaker works


It sounds to me like one of your speakers may be mis-wired. Try reversing the speaker wire (don't switch right-for left, but switch negative for positive) and see if that changes anything.

Try to increase the speaker levels through setup. I had the same problem and I increased the speaker level from 0dB to +10dB, and seems like it is better now. Let me know how you make out.
