Will not produce sound through the top end of my speakers,
I was wondering why everything was sounding Mono, then i realized the sound output to the speakers is only being transmitted through the Main speakers, none of the top end is working on all four speakers

Re: will not produce sound through the top end of my...
While this may sound strange, it is not likely the receiver that is the probem, at least at this point. Remove the "tweeters" from the speakers and measure across the two leads. You should read continuity. If not, then the tweeters need to be replaced. I believe that you may have blown the tweeters.

Frank, What exactly are you trying to accomplish? Are you attempting to do a single mix with only 1 output/speaker? Depending on your personal preferences, if you are using multiple outputs, then you should be running everything in stereo. It is more difficult, but when mastered, it will give you a better sound than just mono. For example; If you are amping your drums, they should always be panned in the middle. That is, unless you are going for individual snare separation. If your lead guitar stands to the left of the main vocalist, then the guitar should be panned slight left. Rhythm guitar should be in the middle. ETC. Remember, in the end, it all comes down to the sound you are trying to attain. So as the sound mixer, the ball is in your court. ^^ Good luck, and hope this helps.
What do you mean by "Plug one side"? Your guitar is mono....you plug into the channel with a mono signal cable....as long as you're panned to center on your channel strip, you would have full mono sound out...ie sound equally from both speakers. Usually you would be running your board in mono anyway.

" Hi, I wrote a short article for someone who had a similar problem a few days ago. I will edit it for you so that it fits. Here it is. Your DVD player should have output connectors in the
back of it to plug your amplifier or receiver into. If you have a Stereo
system (no surround sound speakers, or front center speaker) connect
the DVD Audio Cables on the back of the DVD player to the STEREO (or MIXED ) Output
Jacks. If it is connected to the Left Front and Right Front jacks of
the "Surround Sound" output jacks instead of Stereo(or MIXED) then the dialog
will be sent to the CENTER channel output. If you have no center channel
speaker you will not hear it. Thus no dialog. NOTE: In your case for the TV that is mono, here is the solution. 1 Connect a stereo pair of RCA cables (red and white "male" connectors at each end) to the Mixed or Stereo Output of the DVD player (NOT ANY SURROUND OUTPUTS). 2 Purchase an RCA type "Y" connector that has 2 female to a single male connectors on it. Walmart about 3 dollars. 3 Plug the single male plug of the Y connector into the back of the TV set's single mono audio input. 4 Connect the stereo RCA pair from the MIXED output of the DVD player into the Y connector that is now on the back of yourTV. 5 Run your yellow Video output from the DVD into the Back of the Set's yellow input. That should do it. The sound should be clear and correct with dialog, effects and music. Hope this helps, Best, Mark
Realize that the number on the volume control is only relative... it means nothing regarding what the amp can produce. With a high level output guitar you can easily drive the amp into distortion at very low volume control level settings... what counts is the actual output sound volume and specifically the voltage output going to the speaker. Once the amp reaches saturation, any further input just pushes it into distortion or "flat topping".
An oscilloscope on the output will quickly show when amp starts to flat top.
SMCCARTY, The idea behind bi-wiring speakers is to get the highest quality of sound by getting the sound from two separate sources doing separate jobs. Lower frequencies are harder for an amplifier to produce than higher frequencies. So it is common to give these frequencies to two different amplifiers so each can produce the highest quality of sound. By removing the low end from the top end amplifier, it provides the top end amp more headroom thus reducing the chances of clipping. Clipping can easily be heard from the tweeters destoying not only the sound but your speakers as well. It is common practice in pro and car audio to use separate amps for subbass, low, mid and high; four amps working together to their corresponding drivers (more or less depending on the system and type of audio being produced).
In your case, getting the two different sources from basically the same amp (power supply), would not accomplish the full intent of bi-wiring; it would just make more wiring for the same end result.However still a good thought on your end. Onkyo receivers are great because of their beefy power supplies. Not very many other brands have such strong power supplies. Denon's are close but not equal. Chris-
surround receivers are supposed to be able to turn a stereo signal into a surround signal. if the surround unit is producing just a stereo sound, then the tv is most likely outputting in mono, and not stereo; or there is no surround sound to decode..
The FC Twin connects through an RCA connector,
and can be hooked into a surround sound system. When using stereo and
surround output from these systems, NES sounds and music may seem very
different from their typical mono output. Using output modes that
properly generate mono sound, either through a single center speaker or
cloned to multiple speakers, the sound output sounds mostly identical
to the original NES. The FC Twin does not produce some sounds
faithfully, even with mono output; sound effects in the Super Mario Bros.
series games will for example immediately seem different. Nevertheless,
some later models of the console produce NES sound much more faithfully
than units made closer to launch. Recent models produce sound with
1) check your setting for sound to (2 way speakers)
2) Setting for Volume in control panel.
3) connector may be you need a little expantion from radio shack gold ext.
4) be sure you got sound from headphones !! **
