Try to unplug and then plug again all the speaker's connections...make sure you do the right connections...or get a AA or AAA size battery,put the + side of battery to the + of speaker(alone/unplug),and momentarily touch the negative(-) side of battery to the negative(-) of your speaker,,you must hear a click from your speaker...if there's no click,you have a defective speaker..

I have a klh home theater speakers with a subwoofer the sub work but when i hook up speakers no sound comes out?


The sub works but the speakers don't? Do you hook up the speakers to the subwoofer output "loop"? This is a circuit issue when it works and stops working. I have the same issue so I wound up joining the wires that go to the sub and the wires that go to the speaker together and place those connections into the sub. The sub works, the satellite speaker works and the impedance load is no issue for my system. Confused? Simply run your neg/pos wire to the sub and where it connects to the sub, run another cable to the speaker (pos to pos., neg to neg).

The only way to repair it would be to deal with component level repair. Although I have the experience, it is too petty and it works fine the way it is.

Ive got these speakers and a real high pitch noice just started coming out of them


hello, This can due to loose connection in the stereo cable (broken wire). and also do you have earth wired to the system or the output device? This is how to check a broken wire, just simply remove the stereo jack coming from you device or PC. make sure you remove both ends, see whether the sound is gone. if you don't have a earth wired, please use a proper three pin plug. if this doesn't work, you have problem with the sound amplifier inside the sub-woofer.. you need a repair :(

Cerwin Vega SUB8...how do I connect


grady66,
We will start with the easy one, Phase. The phase selector is a setting that can be adjusted by sound; which one sounds better? Either one will work fine. It's mainly for situations where the sub enclosure is located at a distance or behind the listening area. The 'in and out' crossover selector and the input from the receiver goes together. The 'in and out' crossover selector is asking if you want to use the internal crossover to block the bass from getting to the satellite speakers. Most home surround sound receivers only have the one sub out and most subs have both left and right inputs. When there is a single signal being fed to the sub you use the subs left input or buy a splitter and send the signal into both left and right, but either way will work equally the same.

There is two ways to connect the speakers to the receiver.

1) Cross-over 'In': you connect the output speaker wires from the receiver to the speaker inputs on the sub and the speaker outputs on the sub to the satellite speakers; the sub will get its sound from the input speaker wires.

2) Cross-over 'Out': you connect the sub to the receiver using the receiver's single sub out, then connect the satellite speakers directly to the receiver's speakers outputs; in this configuration the satellite speakers are given a full range of signal including the bass.

I have used #2 with the same system and had great results.

No sound coming out of speakers on my cerwin vega


spurdoggg,
It will be easy to pin point the problem. If your satellite speakers have been connect through the sub's in and output speaker connectors, disconnect them and connect them directly to the source of sound. If the speakers work its the crossover inside the sub enclosure. If the speakers do not work the speakers are blown.

Lost Speaker Sound


It does sound like a connector issue, don't you think?

What happens if you DON"T touch the connector but move the volume control on the controller?

Have you tried looking outward toward the source?

My ds 533 home cinema sub has power going to it but no sound ive done the test through the speakers and the speakers are ok, what could be wrong with the sub,


There's a small amp in the sub, my bet is that whatever semiconductor does all the work, it is no longer doing anything.

I was given a Cerwin Vega LW12 by a friend. It works fine for some music at any volume, but with certain types it has a popping coming out, even at low volumes. Switched speakers and still happens....


phreewillie,
If you are certain that the problem is not with the speaker(s) the problem then sounds like an issue before the amp.

Did your friend have this issue? If yes, the problem is with the built in amp/crossover. If no, there is some kind of problem in your location.

The amp will not produce the popping sound even if the the amp has a problem electronically. The problem could be improper voltage, line noise, wire resistance or a grounding issue. The first two would be eliminated by using a line conditiner with a built in surge protector. The resistance and grounding issues would be associated with the wire connecting the sub to your electronics. It could be simply the cable connecting the sub has an issue, try swapping it with one that you know works fine. Are you using in wall wiring? Try using like stated above, a short known good patch cable. Sometimes the wire of choice during a installation will not work for that amp. Try taking that in wall cable out of the loop. I have seen just this problem in the past due to the type of wire used. A low cost way to eliminate the voltage issues is to try a different source of electricity by taking the sub to a friends house and see if you can reproduce the problem there.
