Question about Audio Players & Recorders

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.

I have Thomas Pacconi 3-speed phonograph model TPC-7475 and wanted to attach external bookshelf speakers. Is there any way to hook speakers up to the line out jacks?


You need to buy the Jack's male plugs, Wal-Mart has them if memory serves, and splice your speaker wires onto them, preferably with a soldering gun and heat shrink insulation.

4-8 ohm output


it is load resistance. set the amplifier switch to the resistance ( X amount ohms) to match your speakers. Although running 4 ohm speakers at the 8 ohm setting is louder, it will hurt your amp
most home/semi pro speakers are 8 ohm, while car speakers are 4 ohm. If you are doing a multi speaker pa/intercom install use your formula to calculate total load is 2 8 ohm speakers in parallel are four ohms . express them as fractions and add the denominator ie:8/1 +8/1 = 8/2 or 4/1 or 4. now connect that in series (add the top numbers)with another 2 speakers in parallel and you get back to 8 ohm load. repeat the same process over and over and you can hook up to 32 speakers to the amp without needing the 70 volt tap. hope this helped.

How do i get rid of the 60 cycle hum on our building PA speakers? We are using a Speco PBM-30 amp. A two-way radio audio is the feed.


That sounds like mains hum! Most amps have large electrolytic capacitors to take it out. They can go faulty and let it in. They are high value often around 2,200 or 4,700 UF or higher.

I have Polk Audio TSi500 speakers running through a receiver. They sound fine when the radio is playing from the receiver, but when I try to play music from a computer the speakers sound muffled. I have...


Phono jacks are specifically to hook up a turntable to an amplifier (which is what I assume you mean instead by "receiver" ). Most amplifiers have a receiver (radio) section, but they can be separate components. Anyway, try hooking it up to an auxiliary (AUX) input on your amplifier instead. This may be all you need to do. Good luck!

I WAS WONDERING IF YOU COULD HOOK UP THIS AMP WITH A HOUSE STERIO?


sorry, its not feasible, your home stereo and speakers are on AC power while your car amp runs off of DC power.

How can i test my rca output jacks with a test light? pioneer deh p3100ub. hooked up spkr, nothing. tried one rca plug to white(lt) and then red(rt). Unit has 4 rca jacks, 2 for subwfr and 2 for front...


:) the rca jacks have to be connected to an amplifier,, their signal is too lay to even light a bulb.. you have to connect it to a car amplifier and then from the amplifier to the speakers..

Just so you'd know,, once your deck plays and you hear music on your speakers through your normal speaker wires,, RCA jacks work..

Ok you have 4 jacks,, 2 subs and 2 front.. These should connect to a preamp,, which takes 4 inputs and allows you to equalize or adjust how the music should sound,, now from the pre-amp,, it runs to an amplifier,, thats powers the subs and another that powers the speakers.. Some amps have 4 inputs so you can use one amp for your subs mids and heights..

for example a basic music system is

1 cd player
1 pre amp
1 amplifier (4 inputs, 4 channel out)

you bridge 1+2 and connect this to 1 12" double coil sub woofer

the next 2 connect to 2 mid speakers example "rockford or ev 5 / 8 " and 2 tweeters for heights..

Thats a kicking tricked out basic car audio system,,,

Hope that helps you understand how it works..

Hooking up a new 8" woofer speaker to my amplifier


If I'm reading the amp manual right, you should be able to connect the amp in 3 channel mode. To do this:
  • Connect both left door speakers in parallel to Ch A Left.
  • Connect both right door speakers in parallel to Ch A Right.
  • Bridge Ch B and connect it to the new 8" sub.
  • Set the Ch A LPF/HPF to HPF.
  • Set the Ch B LPF/HPF to LPF.
This should allow you to run all 4 door speakers and the sub from the amp. It will also automatically route non-bass to the door speakers and "only bass" to the sub.

Can the cable ends be converted to fit a DVD?


You can certainly purchase a cable or an adaptor to connect the speakers to almost anything - this however is not the issue - z5300 computer speakers have an impedance of 8 ohms, whereas most home theatre systems will be set up to use speakers with an impedance of 4 Ohms or 6 ohms or 8 ohms - using the wrong type in the wrong configuration is very likely to result in damage. Also the speakers contain their own amplifier, and are designed to accept an input that has not been amplified to speaker levels before - most tv/dvd audio output will be amplified, depending on the model, so will almost certainly destroy your speakers unless you have a low amplification output on your tv/dvd. If you post back with the make and model of your tv and dvd player, hopefully i can find the necessary info to describe how you could make the connection if it is possible. Logitech says; "Logitech speakers are powered speakers and are designed to be used with a home computer. However, it is still possible to connect your speakers to many other devices. You can connect any Logitech speaker to any device that has a pre-amp mini-headphone jack. Home amplifiers will normally contain a standard ¼" headphone jack. You'll need to purchase a ¼" to 1/8th" adapter to connect your Logitech speakers to a home amplifier. Note: Under no circumstances should you connect your Logitech speaker system to an amplified output such as the rear outputs of a home amplifier. Doing so may cause damage to your Logitech speakers as well as your home amplifier." Hope this helps - please post back with details :)
