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 use a JS650 with a new Harman Kardon AVR1600 Home Theater receiver? The HR is 7.1 however the JS650 has only speaker wire connectors. Thank you.


Yes. You run the front channel speaker wiring to IT then the the front speakers attach beyond it from thye OUTS. Set the level for the sub to match the other speakers using the knob on the back.

Your amps don't 'drive' the sub, they just pass through it to the fronts while the sub samples the programming.

How To Bi-Amp And Bi-Wire Speakers!


What is the difference between bi-wiring and bi-amping?
Bi-wiring is using the same power source (amplifier) but separately connecting that power source to a woofer and a midrange/tweeter on a speaker.

Bi-amping is using two separate power sources (amplifiers) and connecting one amplifier to a woofer and the other amplifier to a midrange/tweeter on a speaker.

How do I bi-wire?
Your speaker must have two separate positive and negative connections (one set for the woofer and one set for the midrange/tweeter). Connect one wire between the positive terminal on the amplifier/receiver the positive terminal on the speaker. Connect the other wire from the negative terminal on the amplifier/receiver to the corresponding negative terminal on the speaker. Remove the jumper straps connecting the two sets of speaker inputs. Repeat this process for the second set of terminals on the speaker, connecting them to the same positive and negative terminals on the receiver/amplifier. Repeat the steps for each speaker you wish to Bi-Wire, connecting them to the appropriate terminals on your receiver/amplifier.

How do I bi-amp?
Bi-amping is similar to bi-wiring, but involves separate amplifiers: one for the woofer and one for the midrange/tweeter. Passive bi-amping involves a direct hookup between each amplifier and the speaker terminals. True bi-amping involves hooking the preamp to an electronic crossover that replaces the passive crossover network in the speaker. The active crossover then connects to multiple power amplifiers.

0ne speaker has no sound wiring is ok and stereo is ok


Make and Model? Retrevo.com has many manuals and the troubleshooting sections have recommendations for this.

Or, you could swap the speaker with one that works to decide if it's a speaker or amp (channel) problem. Then isolate the wiring.

If it's internal to the receiver or the speaker you'll need a tech to look at it for a fix.

Just got two AR 312 HO speakers from my brother. I have a Yamaha HTR 6250. The speakers have (2) sets of cable hook up. One I assume is for built in sub woofers? Do I hook one normal and one to the sub...


do not use those speakers with that amp, those are 4 ohm speakers, which could damage your 8 ohm yamaha amp. you will have to get a 4 ohm capable amp to run the highs, and another 4 ohm amp to run the subs.

car amplifiers are currently 4 ohm, or even 2/1 ohm stable, but few, if any modern receivers can run at anything lower than 8 ohms without a danger of overheating. you may have to get a vintage amp(s), like a 1970's marantz receiver, or a 1980's to early 1990's kenwood power amp, because 4 ohm home amps are pretty scarce nowadays.

whatever amp(s)( you get, verify that they are DEFINITELY 4 ohm stable.

Front audio channel burnout


Resistors can fail from being turned up to hire, wires getting bumped together or against metal, speakers being wrong ohms, or just plainly overheating.

Best hook- up Polk psw10 sub woofer to yamaha rx-v663 receiver


You will not need to y connect your subwoofer, if you have only one RCA sub out on your receiver the other end of the RCA connector cable goes into the left input on most powered subs, there is no loss of signal, the option exist as some receiver do sport a double RCA sub out.

Which subwoofer????


Cameron,
I have the same problem, check these link and you will understanding more how it works. My understanding was bose cube cannot work with other receiver directly, it has to be work with bose's woofer (they call module) and they have specific wire to connect. So I give up to switch to bose even they match my deco and go back to traditional. Good luck.

Left Channel Not Working.


Has it ever worked?

Try this - connect one pair of its speaker wires at a time and test it. Watch the polarity.

• Make sure all cube speaker arrays are connected to the proper terminals according to their
position in your room.
• Check to be sure all wires are connected to your surround receiver with the proper polarity
(+ to + and – to – wires). Incorrect wiring can result in a total loss of module output.
• Correct any wiring problems before you plug in your receiver and turn it on.

How do you know the receiver's Left channel isn't the fault? Sounds like a source issue.
