Question about Philips HTS3450 System
I inherited an HTS 3450 when we bought our house, however it only produces sound in 3 channels:Right Front, Right Rear, and Left Rear.
I have tried the speaker connectors from the silent speakers in the active speaker slots and all 5 speakers work when tested, but not sure the subwoofer has sound Thinking the subwoofer was faulty, I patiently waited and found a replacement subwoofer (and all other speakers) on Ebay for a decent price. Well the replacement subwoofer functions exactly the same with sound only from the same 3 channels. Now I think the problem is in the DVD/Receiver unit; it must only be sending those 3 channels to the subwoofer. I cannot beleive that I have 2 subwoofers with the exact same combination of failures. Any comments will be appreciated.
Hi, first of all did you verify with the manual if it is possible to run a testsignal through all 5 channels?
One of the most common problems in this case is the basic settings of the device. If you don't have the manual, mostly you can download them from manufacturers website. Chances are that for some reason the setting is set 3.0 stereo (also known as 3channel sound) which is always the 2 fronts and the centre speaker.
Best thing to do it is take a DVD with THX on it and run the THX setup, it will send test signal to all channels.

SOURCE: Sound from 3 channels only
Sometimes what happens is that people r just confused with all wirings.Considering that you have connected the speakers correctly...Now according to u the center speaker is not working
The VGA cable of the monitor will work fine.
