The rear speaker decoding has to be enabled for them to function, regardless of the media. Enter the speaker setup menu and choose "yes" for the rear surround speaker decoding.

Using a remote how do you hook up Pro technique pt18 5.1 Channel surround receiver amplifier


I need to see the rear or know if this set has speaker outputs. If so, then 1st, place your speakers on the walls or floor where you want them to stay. (Attach the wires to them first.) The black wire, black stripe or silver colored is the negative side. Run all the wires to the back side of the amp. Allow enough slack to put the wire under the carpet or along the walls to be out of the way and concealed if possible. Make sure to use a thick gauge of wire. The thicker the better. The thin stuff is junk! If you go to Lowes or Home Depot to get the wire, it will cost less and it's the same thing! Don't waste your money on 'Monster Cables'. Just get 12 gauge spkr. wire and it'll be the same thing. 14 gauge is the typical gauge for powerful spkr. wire but 12 gauge is for those who want earth shattering, furniture moving bass. (Think about it. How much power can go thru a thin wire verses a thick wire?) Run that wire to the black connection of the speaker that corresponds to it's position in the room. (Left front spkr., right front spkr., left rear spkr., right rear spkr., front center spkr. or sub woofer spkr. Find the red & black connectors for each speaker on the amp and attach one of the two speakers wires (the one w/a black stripe or silver colored or totally black to black). And the other color wire for the same spkr. to the red connection of that spkr. on the amp. It's not hard. Take your time and think about it. It makes sense if you look at it one spkr. at a time. Hook up only one spkr. at a time. Before you know it, it'll be all hooked up and you'll say I did that?

TRY CONNECTING THE RCA JACK (RED,WHITE) AUDIO
INPUTS. MY GUESS IS THAT IT WILL WORK THAT WAY,
AND IF IT DOES CHECK ALL AUDIO SETTINGS ON BOTH
AMP & TV PCM digital audio / LPCM digital audio (LIMITED)
MAYBE BAD HDMI CABLE. SEEN IT SEVERAL TIMES B4

I have a sony STR-DE897 and my rear speakers dont get sound when plugged into the surround back ports..Is there a certain setting in order for the rear surround spreakers to work? or does that mean the...


There are a few things required for the rear surround channels to operate;

1. The surround back channels must be enabled in the surround setup menu.

2. The media being played through the receiver must have audio encoded for the rear surround
channels. There are only a few exceptions to this but I'll exclude the explanation for simplicity.

3. The audio level of the speaker channels must be set high enough to be audible.


Enter the surround setup menu with your remote. Use the center button on the remote to toggle through the selections, press down on it to enter the selection.
You will navigate to a selection in the surround setup menu that says "surround back" or S/B with a selectable yes or no indication. Press on the center button to enable them.

Media like DVD or Blu-ray that has 6.1 or 7.1 channel audio has separate, or often referred to as "discrete" or "matrixed" audio intended for playback through surround rear speakers, depending on the music or movie. If your media is encoded for 5.1, then there will be no audio sent to these speakers. However, with the different modes of on-board digital processing of this receiver you can still have audio through these speakers.

Last but not least is the actual playing level of these rear surround channels. They may simply be adjusted to quietly. Enter the setup menu with remote, choose "level" and navigate to the rear surround channels. You can adjust the level up or down in 1/2 dB level increments by toggling left or right with the center button. Each surround channel can and should be adjusted independently and equally.

Wonding can you hook up 4 8omhs speakers to a dual center channel. rear plate on amp says 1 speaker 8 omhs min 2 speakers 4omhs min there are 4 posts in back if i hook up 2 8omhs speakers in parral to both...


You are correct

spks in p = lower than the rating of one

spks in s = greater than the rating of one

so 2 x 8ohms in p = 4ohms

and 2 x 8ohms in s =16ohms

Make sure that you do not connect too many speakers to the amp, and try to stay as close as possible to the amps specs.

Hope this helps, thanks for using FixYa

Getting Surround to work


The easiest way is to hook up your DVD/VCR combo directly to the back of your Sharp LCD TV, then run a component audio output from the TV to the audio input in the back of the receiver. Make sure you hook up your front, center and rear speakers correctly to the receiver, then go through with the speaker calibration steps - per manual, then it should work with no problem. Good luck!
