I have a klipsch thx promedia 2.1 system. I noticed that the right speaker does not work unless I plug both positives into the left side of the subwoofer. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: subwoofer connection

if this is ao powered sub, that plugs into the wall, there should be no problems, if it is powered solely by the reciever it may work fine but be sure you dont exceed amperage on the subwoofer.

its all about impedance matching...did you check to see that the new yamahas would drive from the system, before installing them? sounds like you will need to possibly add a matching transformer or other device on this one.

SOURCE: My Klipsch synergy subwoofer not working

No sound problem is power amplifier trouble maybe the IC there is defected or cold solder of joint of the parts.Cold solder issues - each component is soldered into small holes on the printed circuit board which in turn connects said component to the other components. Due to time, heat, use, some solder joints would be cracked or loose. It is possible that the cold solder is still minimally connected (hanging by a thread). When the receiver turns on heat would be generated which would be sufficient to further loosen up the solder joint to the point it no longer provides electrical contact. Jarring the unit creates movement inside enough to re establish the contact, sometime good enough sometimes not enough.

Again, since the unit still operates (sometimes) then it is highly probable that there are no defective components. As you have surmised, it is possibly a loose connection, solder joints are "connections" except that molten soldering lead is used to attach/connect the component to the board, "loose connection" in this sense is equal to "cold solder".

Again on the assumption of no defective parts, then seeking a more experienced buddy for the soldering might be to your advantage. This is of course in addition to the possible electrical hazards when repairing....

Good luck:

SOURCE: Loud Hum in Pinnacle 150 subwoofer

The hum is likely due to either a failed capacitor in the subwoofer power supply or as it was for me, a cold solder joint on the capacitor. The fix is simple, but does require soldering. Unplug the subwoofer and set it on a good working surface. Remove the screws holding the back panel to the cabinet. These screws are the ones near the edge of the panel. Take off the panel by pulling back on it, reach into the subwoofer and carefully unplug the red and black speaker leads noting which one goes to each connector. Orient the panel with the electronics side up and the power cord at the lower right of the panel. Just to the left of where the power cord is soldered to the board is a large cylindrical capacitor. It is by far the largest cylidrical component on the board. This capacitor filters the hum made by the step down transformer in the power supply. If the capacitor is not working the subwoofer hums. The capacitor is soldered to the back of the electronics board. We had to reach in with a modified soldering iron to remove the capacitor. Before removing the capacitor check the orientation, there is a plus and minus, make sure it goes back in the same way. After removing the capacitor inspect the capacitor leads to see if they were both soldered correctly. If one of the leads is not silver the most likely cause is a cold solder and the fix is to simply clean up the capacitor leads by scraping off anything that is not silver, tinning the capacitor leads and re-soldering it to the board. If the leads look like they had a good solder, test the capacitor by using an ohm meter (used to test resistance) between the capacitor leads. The meter should show low resitance and as the capacitor charges the resitance should go up to infinite. If the meter does not behave this way while testing the capacitor, replace the capacitor. Bring the old capacitor with you to the electronics part store to make sure you get one that has the same electrical properties as the one you are replacing. The form of the capacitor might be different but as long as it is has the right electrical properties it will work. - and don't foget to make sure the polarity is correct when you solder it in!

Lost sound in left channel?


I presume you are playing a stereo cd. Plug some other device, like headphones in to see if the computer is putting out stereo. Use the same plug as the speaker system is plugged into.
I presume you have swapped the speakers to test them.
If the speakers work, and the headphones work, it's the amp.

Crackling when i manipulate the volume control... little or no audio out of the speakers intermittently


control panel,administrive tools,computer management,device manager,sound,could be a yellow question mark? right click to re-install drivers if you have tried this you might try

control panel,administrive tools,computer management,device manager,sound,right click select properties to either troubleshoot,uninstall,rollback driver or select system devices from the device manager scroll to speaker right click to update driver,disable,scan for hardware changes or select properties to troubleshoot,then select driver to uninstall,rollback,uninstall then reinstall


have you tried this control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select the appropriate speakers from the drop down list or navigate to the device manager scroll to system devices + to expand,system speaker right click properties then select use this device (enable)

hope this helps

I have 3 different amps each with pretty much the same problem: One channel intermittently goes out. Power cycling sometimes recovers it temporarily. Also when I play with the input level (on the source...


I recently had a similar problem with a Technics amp having an intermittent low or no sound from the left channel. This was traced to intermittent contacts in the speaker protection relay and this may be a good place for you to start looking. Check for dry joints on the relay pc board terminals. The relays can be removed, dismantled and the contacts cleaned with a fine file and contact cleaner.

How to hook up speakers to emachine t3638? i have the klipsch 5.1 set


The EMachines T3638 comes with High Definition Audio support and you should be able to connect a 6 speaker system (1 subwoofer and 5 speakers).

I believe they are color coded as well. I believe the speaker set you are referring to is the Klipsch ProMedia Ultra 5.1. Is that correct?

Below is the a link to the connection instruction manual. It is a pdf document that you can print out. The instructions for installing the Speaker set is on pages 3 & 4 under Signal Connection and Speak Connection.

http://www.klipsch.com/media/products/owners-manuals/ULTRA51MANUAL_ENGLISH.pdf

It should be pretty straight forward, but send me a note if you have any questions about the process.

Humm. Plug some earphones or another set of speakers into the computer and see if you get sound. That will at least point you in the right direction. And not to insult your intelligence but make sure the speakers are plugged into the green port.
