Question about Pioneer Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

Speaker Hookup I have A+B hookups on this reciever. I put speakers in the family room with a separate volume control. If i put the family roomspeakers on the B side the A speakers do not work. I have swapping the speakers from A to B. There two speaker buttons on the reciever. The only way I can seem to make them work is to hook both sets up to the same output (A or B). Any suggestions on how to solve this prob?

Hi silverfox55

You probably wont experience any sound quality losses, however, you may pick up mains hum that will be noticeable at low levels, and also prevent you sub from auto turning off. It will also be suseptible to RF interference, such as that from taxi and police radios,and mobile phones. Try it first, you may find that it works ok. Your house may have foil building paper as insulation that will sheild the outside sources of Rf interference. The mobile phones however... If it doesnt work, I suggest you use the existing speaker cable to pull through for a run of decent audio coax. This way you will not end up with any unwanted signal getting into your sub.

I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, just give me a hoy :) If you are still unsure, or have problems, before you give a rating for this advice, please get back to me and we can try some more things.
Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you. Cheers.

Hi...
Without a huge mess, I would suggest one of the multi-speaker selectors that partsexpress.com sells or a similar item.
Just put "speaker slector" in their search engine.

If youre going to 8 other rooms..you might try a couple of wireless speaker systems too. They work in stereo and ....no wires

Hi,
Your sub-woofer apparently does not have an amplifier built into it. This type requires you to use your front left and front right speaker output to got through it to your regular speakers. It is called a passive sub-woofer for that reason.
To set it up, Connect your front speakers to the "output" of the sub. It should say "to speakers" on it.
Then connect the Speaker Outputs for the left front and right front on your Denon AVR-391 directly to the Sub. It should say on the back of the Sub "to amplifier".
Here is some theory you should know, if you don't already know it, that will help you get a satisfactory result in setting up this system.
There is a condition on setting up all speakers and subs that not everyone know. It's call "phase alignment". Phase alignment (A Good Thing) refers to all of the speakers in a system moving in the same direction (in and out) at the same instant in time. This gives you much clearer sound and better response from your sub-woofer.
Phase Cancellation (a bad thing) is when some of the speakers are moving out and other moving in during the very same instant in time. It causes problems in sound.
IN A SUB-WOOFER, IT CAN CANCEL OUT THE LOW NOTES.
Here is how to handle it:
On the back of the receiver the speaker terminal outputs are colored Red and Black. Black is considered negative and Red is considered positive. On the back of the Sub woofer and on the speakers the same colors apply. MAKE SURE THAT ALL OF THE CONNECTIONS GO BLACK TO BLACK AND RED TO RED WHEN CONNECTING UP THE SPEAKER WIRES.
The system will work either way. But you will have severe bass loss if the woofer wiring is out of phase because of phase cancellation.
Hope this helps,
Best Regards,
Mark

OmniS10 does not work


Mine has issue with the sub input that runs from the receiver sub output. So I don't have the LFE effect. I have to use the secondary hookup which is:
-run your front speaker wires from the receiver into the input. Then run wires out back to your front speakers.
Is your completely dead period? Or is the light coming on? If its dead, it may be a fuse or the power supply has failed....if the light comes on. Try the secondary hookup. Make sure both your reciever and the sub are unplugged. Plug them back in after you have hooked everything up..

There are two sets of inputs in the back. One set will allow control from the front of the unit, and the other from the computer. In That case, the front knobs are disengaged.

Can we use the subwoofer as an amplifier for speakers? it has jacks for speaker in/out, but i can't figure out how to make it work because the speakers have no sound.


I don't believe this hookup is amplified; but, if you have used the regular unfiltered speaker connections from your receiver/amplifier to hookup the subwoofer, the system will pass the signal thru the outputs subject to the crossover adjustment on the back panel. You cannot get the full signal if your system is sending only the bass signal to the subwoofer. I have copied the instructions below from the manual. You would set the high freq crossover to the low end of your satellite's frequency range. The full manual is here: http://www.jbl.com/EN-US/Products/Pages/ProductSupportDetails.aspx?PID=PSW-D110

High-Pass Control
• If you hooked up your subwoofer
as shown in Hookup
3 on page 4, you also have
the capability of adjusting
the high-pass frequency.
The High-Pass control
determines the frequency at
which the main speakers
will start reproducing
sounds. If your main speakers
can comfortably reproduce
some low-frequency
sounds, also set this control
to a lower frequency
setting, between 50Hz –
100Hz. This will concentrate
the subwoofer’s
efforts to the ultradeep
bass sounds, while your
main speakers continue to
reproduce the mid-bass
information. If you are
using smaller bookshelf
speakers that do not extend
to the lower bass frequencies,
set the high-pass crossover
control to a higher setting,
between 125Hz – 180Hz.
With this setting, your main
speakers will not have the
burden of reproducing any
low-frequency sounds.
• If you hooked up your subwoofer
as shown in Hookup
1 on page 3, the high-pass
frequency is fixed at 180Hz.
• If you hooked up your subwoofer
as shown in Hookup
2 on page 4, there is no
high-pass control. Unless
your receiver/amplifier
incorporates a high-pass
crossover, your main speakers
will continue to get a
full-range signal.
Final adjustment and blending
of the low-pass and high-pass
controls may evolve over several
listening sessions. A good
starting point would be to set
both the low- and high-pass
controls to the same frequency
and adjust from that point.

Inside speakers(1) and deck speakers playing (2) output is at very different levels


The things that affect the outside vs. inside volume are distance and ohms of the speakers if the inside ones are 4ohm and the outside are 8ohm then there will be a drastic difference in volume, also if the inside speaker wires are shorter by 20 feet then there will also be a drastic differences in volume.

What you can do is have a separate amp for inside and out with the input coming from the same receiver. The other thing you can do is put an inline amp for the outside speakers with this you can also balance the volume.

When you have longer wires you drop more voltage across them then when you have shorter ones you also has losses due to electrical interference from lights and the household wiring. To combat this I would suggest an inline amp so that you can balance the speakers more effectively and drop out most of the noise (mostly hum that you hear at a higher volume) that you are probably getting unless you put on filters on the speakers. But if you want to keep it simple than you need a separate amp with a common input, this way as well you can control the speakers to have a different volume for different situations.

The delay is normal as it's designed to create a spacious large room sound. The buzz however, is not. It sounds like the power supply is bleeding into the amp and should be serviced.
