Re: Only my left and right speaker connections works...

Have you gone through the setup and set the speaker menu so that the unit knows you have other speakers. Check it even if you did. Check that you are not in direct mode or stereo.

Kenwood vr606 reciever shutting off subwoofer and centre speaker simultaneously after few minutes/seconds of powering on. WHat's the cause?

The receiver's out put sections are grouped in pairs. Front left and right in one output, rear left and right in second output, and center channel and sub output on the third. Sounds like a semiconductor or semiconductors have gone bad in the center & sub output.

Why Onkyo HTS-9400THX: Front both and subwoofer not working.?

Try differnt speakers, if they do not produce sound, amp channels may be blown and then you need to take it to a shop.

Left, left surr and center no out put

Is this during the auto MACC phase or all the time?

If all the time then check connections and wires, make sure you do not short both speaker wires together if connected to amp as this may blow it especially if it is on.

Best thing to do is removed wires from amp and using a battery place the wires on + and - and see if speajker makes a noise, if not try a pair of cables you know work and see if it is speaker or cables.

If they are all OK, then it must be amp, try swapping out with speaker you know work and see what you get.

Just a case of fault finding.

There is not a subwoofer input jack on the back of this subwoofer. There are a set of input (negative and positive) terminals and a set of output (negative positive) terminals like would hook speaker wires...

On the back of the sub woofer you have two sets of binding post / some have spring clip terminals ( red & black ) labeled Speaker In ( sometimes High Level In ) and Speaker out.
Take 2 pairs of speaker cables and connect one end to the speaker out socket of your amplifier ( left & right ) . The other end of the cable should be connected to the sub woofer's Speaker In socket , Red to red and black to black. Now on the Speaker Out socket of the sub woofer connect your existing pair of speakers using another pair of speaker cables. If your sub woofer has a Hi Pass filter built in , you may not hear bass coming from your existing speakers with this kind of connection. Good if you have small satellite speakers.

When I hook up the rear speakers to my in-wall speakers, I can't get any sound. I have speaker button 1 and 2 selected.

you need to clear that you connect wall speakers for font,center or rear (surround) speakers?
Seem you connect for Front speaker.
Rear (surround) speaker will have "rear" mark on the back of your reveiver.
In general you need to select both buttons 1 & 2 then check your speaker wires connect into "output1" or "output 2" hint: each output will have 1 for left and 1 for right speaker. Each Left or right speaker will have 2 connection 1 red color (+) and 1 white color (-). Try to match these colors code for your speakers connection.

Wiring speakers

your main 2 speakers (front left & right)..hopefully the 5th speaker is a subwoofer right if not it will be...the last 2 speakers will be use as the rear (left & right) order for this to sound correct the receiver should have a button (5:1) depressed ...otherwise you just have 5 regular speakers...

I have two remote speakers attached to my sony receiver and they are not working. I am trying to play CD's from my Sony CD player. I did try plugging in earphones and they worked so I assume the receiver...

has to do with the ohm either 4 or 8 of the speakers, sometimes if you try to run pairs of speakers out of the same port (2 on the left port and 2 on the right-4 speakers on 2 ports) the speakers will work but when you set them up on an A or B selector and try to run both A & B at the same time one of the speakers will cut out. Check the OHM ratings and if all else fails run them off the same port using only A.

How to do Bi wiring in 6.1

Remove the bridging links from the speaker terminals and run two equal lengths of speaker wire from the amp to the speaker. At the amp - speaker terminal, twist two of the same wires together. ( normally marked with a tracer color) Connect these into your left speaker output - terminal and tighten. Connect the two wires to both the negative terminals on the speaker. Repeat the same for the + side. Make sure wires are not shorting across the terminals.

I need to set up 4 pair of speakers, two zones. all ceiling mounted.

Okay! all ceiling mounted speakers. I don't know about 4 pair of speakers.Here is the load down:
First pair of ceiling speakers would be left and right front from speaker A or Main output behind your receiver.
Second ONE,but a pair would be connect to the center channel output as your center speaker.
Another pair would be connect to the surround sound left and right(NOT surround BACK left/right.)
Now,you have 5 channel setup at this point,you still need to purchase a power subwoofer to the SUB PRE-OUTPUT behind your Denon receiver.

For Zone two,you would need to connect your other pair of speakers to surround BACK left and right output.
Go to your Denon MENU button,depending on which model you have,some of them will have an on-screen display feature(you would need to have a composite video cable connect from the video output behind your receiver to the TV video input in order to use the on screen menu.)If not,you would have to it view on the front panel of the A/V receiver.
You need to read the detail on how to setup the video and audio as well as distance and DB for the receiver through the menu button.
I will be frank with you,if you are an amateur,Denon is NOT easy to be setup on the first time.
