Getting A and B speakers to play simultaneously

Hi,
Anybody know how to make it so the A and B sets of speakers can be on at the same time? It seems right now that it's either one or the other...


Thanks!

There's a reason they don't want you running parallel speakers - possible impedance being too low. You would have to CHEAT and attach them both to the same terminals to hear them at the same time. Then you run the risk of presenting too low an impedance load to the amplifier and possibly having it go into protection (turning the speakers off) sometimes. It might also just work if you're lucky and not trying to entertain the neighbors. ;-)

Hello I have another question but this is containing my back up surround sound receiver til I can find a Sony receiver that I like. Ok this receiver is a AV receiver model ht-r420 onkyo surround sound...


Subwoofer sockets
The HTR-420 has only a single subwoofer output. It is the socket on the lower left corner. The other subwoofer socket is part of the multi-channel input.

Because of the age of the 420, it comes from a time when optical and coax connections were not so common and DVD players had 6x phono/RCA sockets to send out the surround signal in analogue format. The multichannel input is for sending a signal in to the amp, and not for getting a signal out. That's why the sub doesn't get a signal from that socket. Use the proper subwoofer out. That's what it is there for.

Speakers A+B
The 420 was designed to run Speakers A+B together if required. However, you must observe the minimum impedance loading if you connect up two sets of front speakers and run them simultaneously.

The minimum Impedance for each set of front speakers is 8 Ohms. If you're recycling old surround speakers from a Home-Theater-in-a-Box system, or the speakers have no labels for impedance on the backs then you can be fairly sure they are not 8 Ohm. That could be the problem.

I just purchased the wireless logitech Z515 speaker to play in the kitchen while the X240 speakers play where the computer is in my living room. The X240s will not play simultaneously with the wireless...


After all cables is installed make sure that before plug the USB on the computer that all multimedia are close and not in use.Turn on then the speakers and look for the signal lights on the device.

The wireless signal must be at least 75-80% for good output from the PC.

Headphone volume?


Unfortunately, I believe this is by design. The knob does not control the volume of the headphone jack on those speakers. The best you can do is set the volume control in Windows so that the headphone volume is acceptable and turn the knob up higher for speaker listening.
