Question about Acoustic Research 900MHz Wireless Stereo Speakers with Auto Tuning

1 Answer

Can Acoustic Research wirless speakers be used for surround?

I bought Acoustic Research AW877 900 Mhz Indoor Wireless Speakers, and they only work with "line out", not speaker terminals. I think they are only for using as extra speakers, not surround. Am I right? Amazon will not take them back. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Atiq

    That's exactlw was I was looking for. Thanks! But won't it still damage the transmitter, even if I connect it to the "speaker to line level adapter"?



    By the by, even the "geniuses" at Acoustic Research didn't offer me that suggestion (the MANY times i called). You must be an electronic genius!

Yeah, I looked it up on thier website. Here is what they say.

Warning: This product is designed to work with line level outputs or headphone outputs only.

DO NOT connect it directly to speaker outputs as it will permanently damage the transmitter.


You can use these as surround speakers if you like. You just need a line level surround output on the receiver. Most high end receivers have this feature but, you may only have speaker level outputs.

If that is your case the only option you have is to use a "speaker to line level adapter".... http://www.crutchfield.com/p_543ADP12/Russound-ADP-1-2-Speaker-level-to-Line-level-Adapter.html?tp=9070

Now crutchfield.com is always a little high on prices but if you look around I have seen them around $10 online.

Good luck with your project.

    As long as you get decent quality converter/adapter you should have no problems with damaging the unit. The more expensive units actually have little adjustment knobs on teh adapter so you can adjust the output levels to the transmitter.

I have a pair of acoustic research "active partner" speakers in need of a power adapter. Above the entrance of the plug in print it has DC 11.5 V. Need a compatible adapter.


DC 12v adapters are common and I think that would work. The similar "Powered Partner" speakers used a 14v DC adapter. Just check the size of the plug and the configuration (center pin is +). Radio Shack and other sellers have universal adapters.

you are using a stereo speaker so definitely you won't get surround sound, Most TV may have either RCA or 3.5mm headphone jack type, both serve the same function, what you need to do is just use a convertor check from this link.

Acoustic Research AR-1 Qusetion- LFE Input and Output functions??


using the LFE input will give you cleaner less distorted bass. You must have a sub out on your receiver or pre-amp. it will give you greater control over the bass output of your system. If you only have one sub-out on your receiver simpley run a 10ft rca from the sub-out of reciever to the rca input of either speaker than use the rca out of 1st speaker to the rca input of second speaker. check to see if you have control of the level of your sub-out on your reciever. adjust the 30hz boost on rear of speakers. now you will have bass that most people only dream of having.

Try using a different source than your television. If it works, then there's an issue with the output of the TV. However, if you use the same cables as you were using with the TV, they may be bad. Try using another device with a different set of cables to plug into the transmitter, which should help identify where your problem really is. Please rate my answer, thanks.
