Wiring speakers to amp for both 5.1 channel and 4 speaker listeni

How do I wire my 5 speakers to my Yamaha V663 Receiver in such a way to be able to use 5 (or I will settle for four) speakers to be used in normal mode for listening to music while also having the ability to use the 5.1 surround sound when listening to movies. Thanks

I am assuming that you want to have a normal stereo ( 2 channel ) from, CDs, Radio Etc.. To be able to play from all of your speakers for a more surrounding sound experience, for parties or just more sound. I am also assuming you currently have your speakers wired like standard 5.1 in the bottom diagram on page 19 of your receiver manual. To change the way the sound is coming from your speakers you will need to refer to the “Sound Field Programs” part of your manual starting on page 52. You will want to be in the input source you would like to change “ie: radio” Let assume you want to change radio, once the radio is on; Rotate the “N” Program selector, (or press “5” and then “12” Prog < /> repeatedly ). You will want to change to program, “7ch Stereo” this should take your 2ch signal and send it to all connected speakers. If this does not work, please let me know.

Can I connect two 4 ohm speakers to make it play on single 8 ohm speaker channel on a receiver


Yes, two 4 ohm speakers wired in series will present an 8 ohm load, though even with matched speakers they are likely to produce different volume levels.

It is probable the receiver will be quite happy using a single 4 ohm speaker if only modest volume levels are used. Many popular hi-fi amps quote power outputs for both 4 and 8 ohm indicating either could be used.

I have connected a cordless microphone to RX-V663 but there is no output in speakers? Do I have to make changes to amplifier or select out some outputs?


How did you 'connect' the cordless microphone to the RX-V663? You will need to select this same input in order to get output in the speakers.

B speaker setup problem


Why don't you set it Zone 2 then you could listen to the radio outside and still watch tv inside. You can turn it on and off just like a and b speakers.

Receiver is shutting down.....


First, I have to compliment you on a thorough and comprehensive problem description and an apparent sense of how to troubleshoot. We're halfway there already.

Your Blu-Ray / PS 3 statement is intriguing but with the E-1 code that absolves it as the problem.

You have two opposing symptoms: the live failure says you have a short while the test mode implies an open circuit. We have to isolate everything and see if it moves to another channel.

Let's run with the "E-1: NO FRONT SP" error. I think it's trying to tell us we have an intermittent sensation of an open wire in one of the Front speaker channels. * Unfortunately, the manual doesn't break out Left and Right (but I'm sure the receiver knows) to help us isolate. You say it doesn't get past the Left test. I need you to decide by listening to the Left Front Speaker setup routine if it's really working or not, and if it seems to be working, maybe the receiver is really failing at the point it advances to the Right Speaker, assuming Right follows left in the sequence.

Verify for me: You swapped the two front speakers Left to Right and replaced both speaker wires with NEW wires and had no improvement.

I'm wary of a failcode that doesn't identify which of a pair is failing, so I 'd like to see ALL NEW speaker hardware and connections in place to avoid the pitfall of swapping the L & R with each other and having one of them be the problem without changing the symptom.

We can accomplish this easily: Try temporarily running the rear speakers as the Fronts just to see if the test can pass. If so, test the Fronts as if they're the Rears speakers. You should be able to just swing the receiver-ends of the cables among the speaker posts.

Something should change or else the problem is internal to the receiver. Good luck.

I am onlty showing two channel speakers


Hello..if you have the manual for setting up you need to go to page 32 and use the auto set up to check out the system ..in this area it will test the speakers and even adjust the equalizer with the supplied osd microphone.. it will give various audio signals to all the speakers and even warn if a speaker is out of phase. After that test follow up carefully the other pages under speaker assignments. I hope that helps .

Cannot get yamaha rx-v663 to play DDTrueHD or DTS HD audio


If your Blu-Ray player has TrueHD or DTS-MA decoding, then it will send a already-decoded audio signal to your receiver. The receiver should then just recognize this as "Straight" decoding, because it isn't actually doing any decoding.

Hope this helps.

Check both the phase and position of the speakers. Phase is that the speaker wires are positive is to positive and negative is to negative from the receiver to the speaker. Then check that the speakers are in the proper place in the room,( front left is in the front on the left side when facing the TV).
