Speaker connection from Denon AVR 2105 to Wharfedale suround
I have a Denon AVR 2105 AV unit and i am trying to find out how to connect up my speakers to this unit as my son borrowed it and has brought it back but does not have clue what goes where. The front speakers are Wharfedale Diamond 9.4 centre speaker is Wharfedale Diamond 9.CS i have a Wharfedale Sub Woofer and Wharfedale Diamond 9.1 rear speakers.
With the main front speakers it seems that the 4 terminals have been separtely used but joined together ( + & - ) back at the unit, the rear speakers have been linked out between + & - . Can you help me to sort out what connects where both on the speakers and on the back of the unit. also noticed do rear speakers go into surround back / multi zone speaker system or surround speaker system ?.

Re: speaker connection from Denon AVR 2105 to Wharfedale...
The spkrs sound like they are bi-amp spkrs, meaning you have multiple terminals on the backs of each spkr, the jumpers on the spkrs should be connected as such. Now you just connect the spkrs according to the Denon spkr conection diagram. Do not use the surround back unless you have 6 or 7 pair of spkrs

Well the basic connection of the speakers would be the same as another stereo speaker pair. Wire the left and right speakers to the L/R Front Surround speakers on the Denon.
With the 901's I am assuming that there is an external equalizer supplied by Bose. Typically this EQ is installed in a tape loop on the receiver/amp so that it is ahead of the power amplifier that drives the speakers. This EQ needs to be there to attempt to get reasonable frequency response from a speaker that has only 4" drivers. I'm not sure I see any reasonable way to make the EQ work with the Denon AV receiver. You'd likely be better off using the Bose speakers in a dedicated 2-channel stereo and getting a set of speakers for the AV usage.
hi, if u want to hook up the sub with ur av receiver the connect the sub woofer output of ur AVR to any one (left or right) input of ur sub woofer. then connect its power . set the frequency range between 90 and 120Hz. set the volume of sub woofer to 40% of its total. also check the av receives speaker setting. goto speaker setup and make ON the sub woofer out.
if want to connect the sub to a stereo amp without sub out. then connect the amps speaker line to the speaker input of sub woofer and connect the speaker out of sub to left and right speaker ( make sure to connect the red to red and black to black). set the volume and frequency as above ok
Speaker connections from the Denon are typically through speaker cables (glorified lamp cord).
The Denon is not capable of driving the sub directly. The powered (?) subwoofer in your setup would presumably require an RCA cable (whatever length reaches) to feed its amplifier a bass signal from the Denon's Subwoofer Out.
It may sound silly, but can you check all your speaker cables again and confirm whether they are connected to the right connections. please check all cables as also the severed one and please repair it also.
Now please go to the system-set-up and do an auto setup and set up your speakers. Listen to the test tones and confirm that they are coming out of the correct speaker.
Once these are set, then if still there is mismatch of sounds, then we could further trouble shoot.
Front panel button engaged for 5 or 7 channel operation? Also check front panel rear surround speakers button is engaged. Should get you back to 7.1 unless you have changed the rear surround speaker setup for a 2nd zone, also be sure you have a 7.1 DSP setting enabled.
I have a Denon AVR-3000 and want to turn on the B Speakers. I have hooked up my subwoofer to the B connections on the Denon since there is not a subwoofer connection. How do I turn the B speakers on without a remote
Denon AVR-1403/483One of the speakers when connected trips the units power off. Disconnected it and it works OK without that channel. Connected a different speaker and wire to that channel and it does the same, trips power off. It's acting like a when two wires are shorted. This is not the case as I have tried different wires and speaker. Not sure whats going on. Presently running system without that channel. Hope someone has an idea.
If the Cd is wired digitally, it will only play through the main zone, because the Denon cannot convert down to RCA to cater for the zone 2. If you plug RCAs from Cd to Denon, Main zone will STILL play from digital, and RCA connection will allow zone 2 to play Cd from RCA input....same with dvd, Satellite Blah blah... no stress, any nasty RCA will do if you want to try before you splash out on really costly cables...perhaps you can help me...want to run AVR 2105 with 2 speakers in zone 2, manual says cant do it - only ably to surround back or biamp...dont want either, dont have stereo yet to try it out...did you have any trouble with that?
