Raised volume cuts sound and gives me "overload" message

I have hooked 4 speakers to my SA-DX950 technics and when I raise the volume up to a certain limit the sound cuts off.after 5 minutes of play. note that I do not raise it all the way up. I have 2 speakers to the main L/R and the other 2 to the lower front L/R. Could this be the problem?. The receiver is suppose to be 500wts

A couple of possibilities: Bad solder on power regulators (attached to main heat sink) or cooling fan may not be turning on when volume is raised.

I have a velodyne f-1200r how do I hook up to other speakers


The simplest way is to connect both the left and right channel speaker wires from your amp or receiver into the speaker wire connections on the back of the sub labeled "From Amplifier"

Then connect speaker wires from the adjacent terminals labeled "To Speakers"

What you are essentially doing now is using the internal crossover of the subwoofer where you determine at what frequency the sub begins to blend with the other speakers.

This is done with the Crossover knob just above the speaker wire connections.

Whatever you have this set to, the main volume will now raise and lower the volume of the sub and main speaker together but you can still make the sub louder or softer as compared to the main speakers by using the subs volume control.

Defeat all tone controls on your preamp or receiver and use only the crossover knob and sub volume until you achieve a seamless blend where you cannot tell where the sub is and it is an extension of the speakers from where you will be sitting.

TIP:
DO not evaluate from the sub itself because the room shape and acoustics are drastically different everywhere ESPECIALLY when you are dealing with bass frequencies.

Can I assume you know how to set this?

MX6050D Subwoofer Issues


Hello, welcome to Fixya!

Fault is either from the main system or the sub-woofer itself.

You need to test both unit in order to detect which of the two is giving the fault, so that you can concentrate on the faulty unit.

Test the woofer with a AA battery or any other battery. Put your ears close to the woofer and observe if you will hear any sound. If the woofer makes sound, then it means the woofer is working, but if it doesn't make sound, then it means the woofer is defective. Or you can disconnect one of the working speakers and connect the woofer to that part. If there is no sound, then obviously, the woofer is defective.

If the woofer seem to be working, then the unit needs to be tested also.

Connect one of the working speakers to the sub-woofer's section of the main unit. If the speaker doesn't bring out sound, check the system's menu settings, check the volume and make sure the sub-woofer volume is raised to the highest level and not on mute. ( Note that most Theater systems has separate volumes for each speakers). If the volume is raised to the highest level and there is still not sound from the woofer part, then it means the woofer channel has burnt. It could be a fuse or a defective channel. At this point, I think you need help from a repairman.

I hope the above is clear.

Regards.

I'm about to hook up my KLH to an Onkyo Receiver with Audyssey sound features. 2 questions: it asks me to set my sub to 75 DB. Since my volume dial goes 0-10, which number maps to 75 DB? Also, what...


I think it wants you to raise the volume high enough on the sub so IT can hear at least 75dB. It can always adjust the sub downward if necessary. Max it out at the sub and let Audyssey deal with the adjustment.

Your crossover frequency selection would be a piont below which you want the sub to activate. It depends on the bass capabilities of your other speakers. You want some overlap so there's no droop in the crossover region where your main speakers roll off.

Cuts out on raised volume


You are overdriving the amp. make sure the impedance is correct on your speakers also

Replacing sub speaker


I wouldn't try reinventing it by replacing the driver. Drivers and their enclosures are designed to work together. And this being a self-amplified subwoofer, there is one more piece that's electrically optimized to the rest. Don't mess with it.

Why don't you just set your receiver's individual relative speaker volume levels so the sub isn't weak by comparison to your other speakers? Weakness, as you call it, is relative.

Is your receiver properly channeling Low Frequencies to the sub? Experiment with the cutoff, too.

This problem doesn't require meatball surgery.

Sub rumbles at very low freq that I cannot raise my output level on the sub


Hello,
That rumble could be several things, start by switching your patch cables to see if there is a fault in the sine. If not it could be the amplifier trying to pull a constant source of current through it to operate and is being corrupted by a fault in the circuitry, or a feed back look of some sort. Either way, if you can't find a problem with your input signal, your sub will need repair or replacement. I hope this helps...
