Making an mp3 speaker system

I have 2 8 ohm 10watt speakers that im trying to use to make a speaker system for my mp3 player. I hooked the mp3 player up to the speakers but it wasn't quite loud enough, its also going through a filter capacitor first. what do i need to use to amplify the signal coming from the mp3 player? Or is there another way to do it?

You need an integrated amplifier like the ones used in stereo systems. The output of an mp3 players is at a level only sufficient for headphones and must be amplified alot to provide the current needed for large speakers.

I have bose 401 speakers and need them to work with a stero that puts out 8ohms can you help?


Amps don't 'put out' 8-ohms; they're spec'd to drive a nominal load, usually 8-ohms, and always have some leeway as speakers are reactive loads that will vary with frequency.

You need to evaluate what your amp can do with a nominal 4-ohm load. The manual says they will work with amps rated for 4-8 ohm loads. Plug them in and keep an eye (and ear) out for any sign of stress (heat, distortion, smoke) when driving them hard.

These sound like they a JBL speaker.
1. You will need the impedence and diameter spec and the Hz (hertz) specifications to get a replacement set.
you can call JBL Altec-Lansing is the company that manufacturer this series of speaker.\ On the back of you speaker cabinet should be a phone number to the company or check the user manual that you received with the speaker system and they should be able to give full information on how to replace the speaker in question or where to have it repaired.
The cabinet is glued together and will need a cabinet expert to disassemble.
Contact JBL for more information.

Some of my speakers are not working with my dvd player...when testing the signals they all work though...


Is your DVD player part of an integrated system or a separate unit? If it's a separate unit hooked up to a receiver, check your audio cables if rca type. If you are using a digital cable like optical (looks like a small tube) or coaxial digital (looks like a single rca cable) check tour sound settings on your receiver. If your receiver has a setting like 7 ch stereo, go to that, all speakers play equally and easy to hear. If your listening to a movie in a "movie" setting, you will only hear the center channel most of the time since all the talking is mono and the tv is in front of you. Your left and right front speakers are "front effect" speakers, like people walking or talking directly beside the main image on the tv. your rear speakers are for "effect" only, a car/plane/train etc going past you and behind you. they are the least heard and most "mis understood" by the average person. I hope this is what you were looking for, if not, post a comment with your products make and model #'s and be more specific as to which speakers you are referring to and I can help some more.

Wireless speakers will not work.


Post the Model #'s of the products involved and I can be a little more specific. Using generic troubleshooting, First: make sure you have the wires for the receiving unit of the wireless speakers hooked up to either "A" Front or "B" Front. thenmake sure your receiver speaker switch for the corresponding location is on. It will light up on the front of the receiver either A, B, or both. Now, turn on the AV receiver and Tune it to a strong radio signal in your area, turn up the volume 1/4 to 1/2 way. Power the wireless units on. Both the speakers and their receiver should have a power button or at least a light to let you know they are getting signal. keep the speakers close and fine tune the wireless receiver with them until the led light on the front of the speakers is solid. You should have good audio at this point.

The other way the wireless receiver is hooked up is with RCA cables to the AV receiver. Without knowing what AV receiver you have, plug the RCA's into an "Output" like "Front Main Pre Out" or "VCR/Tape2 mon" or just plain "Monitor out" Depending on which Output you use will determine the setting on the receiver. If you need further clarification, post your equipment model numbers and I can tell you exactly what to do. Hope this helps

Check to make sure that your speakers' ohm rating matches the amp.
Also check every speaker connection carefully for stray strands, poor connections, etc.

Tascam 22-2 no sound


Yes you need to hook it up to an amplifier and speakers through RCA cable on the back. And or you can use headphones if there is a headphone jack?
Also make sure there is something recorded on the reel tape in the first place. You can do a test recording of something like a CD from your CD player or record something, then play it back, make sure you turn the record input volume knob up and make the RCA connections on the back of the reel unit and connect to your playback source you want to record. When you playback the reel tape, the db meters should be moving on the front of the reel deck, if they move then you most likely have some sound recorded on the reel tape.
If you still can't hear any sound and the db meters are moving, then check all your connections again and volume output knob on the reel deck. Hope this helps?
