Just make sure they all have the correct impedance to match your system. Such as 8 ohm or 16 ohm. Sometimes the speaker inputs are marked with the correct ohm value

Well, there really was nothing to it.
I let it dry out for the rest of the day and it went back to normal, thankfully.

Alan, The resistor is on the underside of the CD 5 main pcb near the jack socket it is a small chip resistor, but this can be replaced with a small 1/4 watt or smaller resistor. If you provide me with your e mail address I will send you a copy of the PCB layout drawing, the image size is to large to attach
Regards

SOURCE: adding turntable to bose music wave system

Hiya, sad to say it wont work even with the correct plugs. If you really need/want to get it going, you will need a RIIA pre amp to use to convert the turntable levels to an acceptable level for the bose. Once you have that, then get the correct matching plugs for the bose (sames guys that supply the preamp should be able to help). Suggest a google search in your area "RIIA PREAMP" and see who supplys.

Best of luck

SOURCE: ive got bose lifestyle model 5 system and have

There should be an AUDIO OUT left and right rca input/output plugs on the back of te TV; according to this, (http://www.bose.co.uk/GB/images/Lifestyle%205%20Series%20II%20Music%20System_tcm6-4083.pdf) the inputs for the audio are right next to the FM antenna port/plug so, if you have one of these; (http://www.inmax.ca/images/rca-cable.gif) just plug them in to the AUDIO OUT on your TV, and into the INPUT on your Bose system.

How do I connect a set of Pioneer 6ohm, 50w speakers to a DP42SM?


If the Pioneer speakers are of the active type (built in amplifier), you can connect them to the left an right analog audio outputs of your TV. If the Pioneers are passive speakers, you need to connect them to an amplifier/receiver first and then use an interlink cable to connect amp/receiver to your TV.

NHT sa-2 amplifier won't go into standby mode after 10 Minutes of no signal


Does the NHT sa-2 have it's own pre-amp? Because I'm wondering if the power off only works when it's own pre-amp is used? So when your receiver is connected it's shut off.

You could try something connected to it's own pre-amp (if it has one) and see if it goes off when there's no signal from that.

I have four active and two passive speakers how do i hook up to amp


Assuming they are ALL mains and not for monitors connect this way:

Connect the passive to the A and B powered outputs. Please read my tip on Fixya regarding hazard of grounding speaker leads on channel A of PMP mixers.

Connect each pair of active speakers to the Main L and R 1/4 inch jacks using TRS balanced cables. Power these speakers from the SAME receptacle or source, even if it means running an extension cord to your mixer from where the actives are plugged in. FAILURE to do this creates a hazard of ground loops and ground bounce that can damage equipment. The Main L and R 1/4 inch jackls can drive more than one active speaker... these are line level signals. Make sure to use TRS balanced cables for this.

Hi, I have the Kenwood Subwoofer KS-201-HT, my question is how do I connect it to my receiver?


usually subs have outputs 4 ur monitors however if ur sub is active @ ur monitors are passive then you need 2 connect sub 2 ur tape loop with rca connections,usually you use the send signal from ur reciever which would norm connect to ur tape input , if the sub is passive then u connect direct to speaker output on amp then monitors to the sat connections on sub

My redceiver gives me a message saying "protect" when i turn the volume up. this started after i hooked up a subwoofer, why is this happening?


You should consult the manuals for the receiver and the subwoofer to make sure you haven't connected the sub improperly. If the amp was working normally before you connected the sub, I would look at the sub hookup first. If the sub is a passive type, and you have connected it in parallel with your main speakers, the amp may not be able to handle the extra load. You may have to get another amp to drive the passive sub. If you have an active sub, you may not be using the right input/output connections between the amp and the sub inputs. Or, you may have hooked the sub up in a way that causes the amp to become unstable. Check the manuals. If you can't resolve it, come mback here with a lot more detail about your gear.

What speakers are for MDS JE 330


Any kind you want. The MDS JE330 needs to be connected to an amplifier to use regular loudspeakers, so the choice depends on your amplifier, room size and budget.

You can also connect small active or passive speakers designed for portable units such as mp3 players or those used on desktop pc's to the headphone socket, but the sound quality won't be very good.

How manny watts per channel??


I'm guessing the 200w are the Speakers maximum input, right?
Is the sub passive or active(=integrated Amp)?

If it's a passive sub:
If it's a 2-Channel Amplifier, you're talking about, you won't be able to connect all 3 - unless you can live with one speaker being significantly louder than the other or your amplifier going up in smoke...

As to the power required, if it's 250W PER CHANNEL the amp will blow your speakers, if it's 250W combined you may not be able to drive them to their absolute limit but they will be loud enough (they probably reach their db-limit with less than 200w but if they reach it with 200, you'll only get ~6db less than that with 125w per channel)

The Watt-numbers on (passive) speakers only tell you how much they can take before they are damaged, the relevant numbers for your problem are the efficiency (the unit is db/W or db/2,83V) and the maximum db-level (most floorstands can produce between 100 and 110 db at one meter distance)

If your speaker produces i.e. 87db/W at 1 meter distance (which is the standard measuring distance), it will produce ~97db at 10W, ~107 at 100W, etc. - unless it reaches it's limit before that. Most speakers can take a lot more power, than they need to reach their limit but they won't get any louder if you keep turning up the volume beyond that (they'll probably produce more distortions though, so don't)


As to the sub:
if it's passive, you'll need another amp (there are special amp-modules for subs, but any amp with enough power will do)

if it's active, you can connect it to the sub-out of your preamp (I'm guessing the PA Amp you mention is a Main Amp, not an integrated one) or your integrated amp via cinch (a tape-out works too)

OR you can connect it to the speaker outputs and than connect the speakers to the sub - in that case the sub is still NOT driven by your main amp but you can use it's crossover to separate low frequencies (--> SUB only) form higher frequencies (--> SPEAKERS only).

Most active subs can be connected both ways, if yours can't your stuck with one.

Rarely there is a third way, which only works if your sub supports it and if you either have seperate Pre- and Main-Amp or if your integrated amp has a Pre-Out and a Main-In (in that case in can be split into preamp and main amp)

IF you want to use your subs Crossover (which is good idea, provided it has one), you'll have to connect it between Amp and Speakers (works with allmost all active subs) or between preamp and main amp (works only with a few)



I hope this is helpful

Amps in a seires


I'm not sure what this will do, but electrically you can hook these up. Using the line output from the swx, connect it to the line level input. I think that that would be the active input. When you connect a guitar(without a battery powered pickup) to the hartke, it goes to the passive input right? If so, then connect the line out of the swx to the active input. Reverse if the behavior is opposite of what I described.

Realise that with these two connected to each other, you will be using both pre-amp sections and the amp section of the hartke.

I have a wharfedale svp15 passive loudspeaker. The subwoofer has started crackling and popping at low volumes and has no deep bass. At high volumes it sounds great as usual and can't tell if the crackling...


Information I find online says it an Active Subwoofer, so that introduces its own amp as a possible source of the symptom. If there is another version of this model that's passive, all the more reason to believe the amp is the problem because passive speakers don't spontaneously emit sounds.

If there was a physical reason for the crackling I would think more power would make it worse or blow it up.

A poor sub signal cable connection might explain low current anomalies if random noises are entering the signal path.

Make sure the signal, speaker and power cables are not aligned parallel and close to each other.

Amp protection circuit has been activated


1-check your input cables from connected equipments(cd player or dvd p
layer or any other media source).
2-adjust your input signal level(from-10 db to 0 db).
3-amplifier power must be bigger than total power of all loudspeaker with 20%----(if total power of loudspeaker is 8 watt amplifier must be 10 watt.
