SOURCE: Powered Or Unpowered Subwoofers For Onkyo TX-8511

Greg- Powered subs are better than non-powered subs (also known as passive subs), anyway I see the TX-8511 has no sub pre-out on the back panel, so you need to decide what sub you will use and run from the receivers left and right speakers output into a subwoofers speaker in from speakers then back out to speakers, look at the back of a subwoofer and you will see like 4 sets of speaker hookups 2 in and 2 out, what this does is takes the low end or bass and drops the signal to the subwoofer then takes the mids and highs out to your left and right speakers, unless your regular left and right stereo speakers have large woofers a sub is the way to go.

Just check your speaker cabling again. Make sure that all of them are seated properly, none is touching each other or the body of receiver. Rewire if necessary..
Are you using banana plugs for connecting speaker or just directly. Some times even a little tiny wire touching the receiver could trigger the protect mode. Be careful, since protect mode is sometimes not fast enough and it could blown a few trasistors in the power circuit.

Otherwise, do your bose speakers play out load on other systems?

hello there 2 transistor 1 for the right channel and 1 for the left first thing 2 do is a visual check in good light check for any burn't part or any bulging capacitors if everythink looks ok then check underneath the board for dry joints if then you will need a mulitmeter to start testing components

I just hooked up my old Onkyo TX-8511 receiver to my bose speakers, which is also hooked up to a subwolfer. When I turn the volume up the system goes into protect mode. Any solutions.

T.v.


If you have a VCR it is easy. Just plug RCA cables into audio out right and audio out left (on VCR) and other ends into VCR audio in right and left at rear of your receiver. If there are two sets of video audio inputs, push button on front of receiver to agree with where you plugged cables in. (ie. Video 1 and video 2)
