Re: Left speakers is louder than the right

If you have the remote there is a button for speaker setup that you can use to adjust the output. They are all at +0 by default. You can adjust the value to balance the audio.

Re: Left speakers is louder than the right

Maybe you have unfair inputs!? or your balance control is not working good... or you have defective parts! or maybe they change value like resistors and small capacitors, or u have leak driver transistors...

High frequency noise form my 7.1 surround sound system

Is the microphone live? If so, what you're getting is called "acoustic feedback". Any room sound gets in the mic, gets amplified, comes out the speakers, and then gets picked up by the mic again. Louder and louder until you get to the maximum your system can do.

The solution is to turn it down. . . until it stops.

My samsung ht 100 home theater right speaker is no talking what is the problem

It may be an interrupted speaker cable or a poor connection or a short circuit. Check this first. You can then check this by switching left and right speakers. If you still don''t hear sound from the right, but you hear from the left, then your right speaker is ok but the problem is at the amplifier (either its connections or in the worst case a burned circuit). If instead after the switch the left speaker isn't working, then it is either the speaker cable or (in the worst, but unlikely case, the speaker coil is burnt and it has to be rewinded if possible or loudspeaker must be replaced). Hope this helps.

My BOSE Cinemate Series II right speaker is louder than my left. Why? I have checked all the cable, switched speakers, powered on my source and the BOSE in several configurations, but the right speaker...

The title contains the Onkyo reference, hence the presumption it was involved.

Yup, sounds like you're stuck with a lemon. Have you contacted Bose?

Phillips HTS3410D audio

You seem pretty anxious to perform surgery. Have you done traige yet?

It could be something as simple as a malfunction on a heaphone jack connection.

DO headphones work? Try using FM as the most basic source.

How do we know the internal audio is present and sufficiently loud to drive the speakers? If you have a tape deck or a TV with audio in connections, run an RCA jack to it and see if there's something there to listen to. No signal = no speakie = something other than the power amps failing = not those caps you read about.

BTW: don't use Maximum volume while troubleshooting. If you finally do touch the one thing causing the problem you'll probably launch the speaker cones right out of their enclosures and have to start all over again with blown speakers.

Sony DAV-SC8. I'm suddenly getting distortion

It sounds like the speakers themselves are the problem rather than the amp.
Although, it would be rare to have overdriven/blown the surrounds.
My suggestion would be to isolate which speakers or channels (on Amp) are at fault.
Swap left and right to see if the problem transfers across.

Only one surround back speaker works

It sounds to me like one of your speakers may be mis-wired. Try reversing the speaker wire (don't switch right-for left, but switch negative for positive) and see if that changes anything.
