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.

" Some DVD\'s sound fine whilst others have background sounds but no
voices. I do have an old model TV that has mono sound.Would that cause
" 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
There is not a "fix" for this selection, MONO is basically a single channel output so there is no seperation for various speakers like left or right which is a stereo effect, mono is like a single speaker sound so you are fortunate to have the sound from 2 speakers but they deliver the same sound.
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-
Hi when using surround sound its important to understand that not all soundtracks have a "rear channel' meaning that the rear speakers will not always produce sound. In fact the rear channels may only produce sound about 10% of the time.
Your receiver has a "test tone" which sends a tone sound through the 5 speakers you should turn the speakers up or down so that all 5 speakers produce about the same volume.
The speakers of course will have a different sound to them depending on the brand and model but just try to balance it as much as possible.
Should also point out that you need to start out with at minimum a STEREO signal and that it needs to be connected with good quality cables. If possible use the optical inputs or HDMI which is a digital signal but not all receivers have that capability.
Lastly play around with the settings Dolby is of course the standard but many receivers have Neo or other proprietary surround formats which may produce the desired effect.
Some sound fields have reverberant effects that need adjusting so the levels become audible, such as in "stadium" mode. While playing one of these sound fields, navigate through the speaker setup menu and make adjustments to the "effects" percentage, and levels. Be aware however, that only in 4 channel stereo mode will your surround speakers produce sound 100% of the time. Also, in any form of Dolby Pro Logic mode you will hear more sound from the surround speakers originating from stereo source material than from monoaural material...example, a television station broadcast in stereo versus mono.
when the stereo or mono listening mode is selected only front speaker and subwoofer produce sound--------make sure that speakers are configured correctly. and you select surround sound in listening mode.
If your tv is putting out mono you will only get the center and sub speakers. This can be because the tv is only mono, or the output is set to mono in a menu of the tv. If you have cable or sat run the digital audio out to you receiver; it usually sound better that way anyhow. Set your receiver to Dolby mode for best sound.
