Our gun club has a Speco 260A amplifier hooked up to 8 exterior speakers. Lightning has run in on several of the jacks and now we cannot use several inportant speakers outside. Who could I call to see about repairs? Thanks, Harry Gable

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Perhaps you can post back your general location/zipcode. Alternately, most reputable electronics shop would be capable of attending to your requirement since it would involve:

  • re-wire, replace jacks;
  • check/replacement of external speakers;
  • check over of the Speco 260A amplifie;
  • check/repair/replacement of the speaker distribution system.
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

How to hook up the subwoffer


There are several methods, depending on the the types of 1)inputs on the subwoofer and 2) outputs on the amplifier (aka receiver). You can only use the type that is on BOTH.

Most sub woofers have "line level" inputs (they are the RCA phono style jacks or other style jack) that are marked "In" or "Input" and may have speaker level input & output terminal that accept speaker wires.

Amplifiers or "amp" all have speaker level outputs and many also have jacks that are labeled "Subwoofer" or "LFE" (low frequency effects) Output. If both your sub and amp have the "line level" jacks, then all you need to do is get a cable that is long enough to connect the two together, and then enable the low frequencies to be sent to the sub instead of the normal speakers in the receiver's set up menu. Done!

If you have only a speaker level connections common to both the sub and amp, you'll most likely need to disconnect the Main front L and R speakers from the amp and connect to the sub's Speaker Output terminals - and connect a couple of new speaker cables between the sub's Speaker Input terminals and the amp's Main front L and R terminals.

If you don't understand completely, provide the make and model of the amp and the sub, and I'll be able to clear up anything that isn't clear.

Dennon gets hot shuts off


how are your four outside speakers hooked up? If you have four speakers hooked up to only two output channels on the receiver, the receiver is sensing a short and shutting down to avoid damage to the amp.

How to connect speakers to RCA model #RP-8070D


This unit is just a 5 disc CD player and cannot drive large speakers all by itself. Normally it is hooked up to a stereo receiver / amplifier which is what provides the power to drive the speakers which are wired to the back of the stereo amplifier.

If you have a home stereo, then just run the cables from the 2 AUDIO OUT connectors on the back of your CD player to the CD IN connectors on the back of your stereo.

Then turn your stereo on and select CD on your stereo input mode selector and you should be able to play the cds on your RCA and hear them through the stereo speakers.

If you do not have a stereo amplifier with speakers to connect it to, then you can always listen to it through headphones connected to the headphone jack.

Or if you have a set of self powered amplified speakers, like the kind you hook up to a computer, then you can run the AUDIO OUT cable from your cd player into those as well.

Good luck.

How do I hook up a non powered sub woofer on my htr-5630?


You will need an amplifier or 2 channel receiver. Hook the sub out rca jack to the rca inputs on this new amp or receiver and hook the speaker terminals on sub to speaker terminals on same amp or receiver. Your Yamaha receiver doesn't have any power for a passive sub.Just pick up any old fairly high powered receiver for fifty dollars and you're good to go.I use old dolby pro logic receivers as they are a dime a dozen today. Good luck.

How do I connect old jensen speakers to a technics m222 duel cassette deck


You have to send your signal out through an amplifier of course. The amplifier is what has the "speaker out" jacks on it's back. The cassette deck and the amplifier have connections through low-level signal cables (patch cords) which are ususally 3 or 6 feet par of cables which are red and white (referencing right and left signal channels).
An alternative is the hook earphones to your jack on the front to listen to if you do not have an amplifier to connect to.

Pioneer sx-205 gives a overload warning and cuts in and out when tuner or cd is playing


Does it play normal on any sources, or do you only have the tuner and CD for available sources?

There are many different things that can cause this type of problem.

It could be bad solder connections on in the amplifier circuit or power supply, it could be a bad speaker or a bad output channel inside the receiver if this happens only when it gets turned up loud.

The overload warning happens when the amplifier circuit has excessive current or DC voltage on the outputs. Unfortunately the only way to determain if it is the speakers is to change them with other known good speakers and see if it still happens. But before buying any speakers you need to have the receiver ruled out as the source of the problem.

It can also go into overload if you have the wrong type of speakers connected, or too many speakers connected. Each speaker jack should only have one speaker connected toit. If you are using for example, 4 speakers connected to the "A" speaker jacks meant for just 2 speakers, it will create a load to the amplifier that the amplifier is not rated for.
Look on the back of the receiver and it will have listed the proper impeadance for your receiver. Most will say:

8 ohms or more "A" or "B" speakers
16 ohms "A" and "B" speakers

That means you must use 8 ohm or higher ohm rated speakers if you are using only speakers"A" or only speakers "B", but can not use 8 ohm speakers if you are using speakers "A" and "B" at the same time. Then they must be 16 ohm speakers.

Two 8 ohm speakers in one speaker jack is a 4 ohm load, that is why you can not use more than 1 speaker per speaker jack.

I hope you found this information useful, and if I can be more help just let me know.

Denon AVR-1907 blinking red power button


It sounds like you have a bad speaker on the zone 2, or you have the speakers connected improperly.

When you engage the zone 2 a relay clicks and the speakers then become part of the amplifiers circuit.

If the problem was in the amplifier, it would go into protect mode without even having speakers connected to it.

If the speakers all check good, you most likely have the wrong type of speakers, meaning the impeadance is too low, or you have too many speakers connected to it.

On the back of the Denon, you will see right around the speaker output jacks, what ratings the speakers should be. If I remember correctly, it says 6 ohms or more when using only "A" or "B", and it says 12ohms or more for "A" + "B".

If you have two 8 ohm speakers on the same speaker jack you now have a 4 ohm load. That is below the ratings and can cause the amp to shut down (go into protect). Since your amp shuts down right away, I think you have a bad speaker or way too many speakers connected.

I have seen many times when people will connect 2 or 4 speakers to the one of the outputs that are designed for only 1 speakers.

If you are using too many speakers you will need a speaker distribution box. It has a resistor network built into it so the amp never sees a lower impeadance than what it is designed for.
You can connect 4, 6 or 8 speakers to one set of outputs designed for 2 speakers. You do loose a lot of power to the speakers, but it is better than blowing up your amplifier.

If I can be of any further help, let me know.

you may be using an equalizer? try to pop-up the volume with all tone controls in flat mode. see if it still cuts off. if this is the first time youencounter this then something must be wroing with either your speakers or your amp. unless your ventilation is not good enoughg, you can also try placing a blower on top of your unit to cool it down

Multiple speakers in same outlet


How this reciever is set up is there are left and right A and left and right B Only one 8 ohm speaker should be attached per outlet. if you exceed that your driving the channel at a much lower resistance then the units designed for and the channel will burn up.. Oh it might last a short time but bet your last dollar it will burn up the channel if you over load it. Please dont forget to rate this.
