SOURCE: Output fader ineffective

It sounds as though the ground connection to the fader control has gone missing. Check with a meter.

SOURCE: Kenwood stereo control amplifier KC-206 doesn't work

I was able to use an universal remote control that I have, a Radio Shack Kameleon 6 in one remote control which I was able to program to run the audio portion of the Kenwood KC 206 control preamp. By adjust the remote sensor volume to max, I was able to get maximum volume out of the unit and drive the power section very nicely. Now I have to get up and manually turn the manual volume control for addition volume adjustment.

Hopefully Ken can find a remote that he can control the Kenwood control preamp the same way I did. Good luck here.

SOURCE: Volume Control on my SCBT100 Blu-ray Home Theatre doesn't work.

Unplug the power and let it sit. Plug it back in and it should fix. Worked for me.

My amp turns on good but after a while of too much bass causes a ugly sound too loud what could it be? Can it be repaired?


If you have over driven the amp by playing it real loud with the bass control turned up, it is very possible that you have toasted the output stages of amp.
Every time you boost a tone control by 3 db you have doubled the output power at that frequency. So if you are "coasting" along at a nominal 75 watts, the moment you boost the bass by 3 db the amp has to put out 150 watts at that low frequency.. Go to +6db and now the poor amp has to kick out 300 watts! And so on.

Rule of thumb - you never use your tone controls at very loud levels. Tone controls are there to compensate for the poor frequency response of the human ear at low volume levels - the Fletcher Munsen effect. At low volumes our hearing with the lows and high frequencies so when you play something at low volume you boost up the bass and treble to compensate for poor hearing. At loud volumes our ears respond properly.

How to level subwoofer out


Either the receiver with a dedicated subwoofer outlet has a level control or the powered subwoofer has a volume control. If it is a passive woofer without an amp you better hope that the amp has a level control for the output - if not you are out of luck in properly setting the level.

If you have a sound equalizer, it has a volume control - you can plug the receiver output into it, leave all the controls at zero db level, and use the overall volume control on the equalizer to achieve your objective.

I have the following setup: AV Receiver: Pioneer


Very common problem with today's receivers. Receivers made today don't have a true preamp section in the amplifier and do not amplify the sound to the extent of an older receiver. I have large 15" front speakers on my system, and have stuck with my 15 year old receiver just because I know that a new receiver will not have the power to drive them well. Many of the newer receivers need to be turned up to 50-60% before you can even hear anything from the speakers.

I have a Behringer 1002 mixer. Applying 0 dBu unbalanced to the input I need the -10/+4 control in its most sensitive position to acheive 0 db out with the main output control set at 0 dB. Is this cor


Depends on the input you are using. First you need to calibrate signal coming in with the Gain attenuation knob. Setting this prior to adjusting your channel output volume should calibrate the signal so when the channel volume knob is set to 0 and the Main volume is set to 0, the meters should indicate a true 0 reading.Not setting the Gain correctly will affect this. On the 1/4" channel inputs, you have less adjustment and may have to adjust the item you are plugging in from its source. If you are having issues with high gain, chances are it could be a cable issue, or something from the source itself.

I have a marantz sr4320 receiver. The volume control knob is not working---I can't get any sound no matter the volume number. "d8" is now showing, too, following the number. I have followed...


Do you mean "db"?

NEVER USE MAXIMUM VOLUME FOR TROUBLESHOOTING. The errant switch, control or condition may change and you will suddenly release the amp's full power and possibly destroying your speakers. If a signal isn't audible at 1/2 volume it's probably not there.

Turn the volume down.

While you're squinting at the front panel, find the manual and evaluate every indicator on the face to make sure you understand what they mean and how they might affect operations. Look for Speakers NOT enabled, Muting ON, a Tape or other input inadvertantly selected. If you fail to find the errant setting, treat it like a new install and set it up all over again according to the manual.

The manual knob for adjusting the volume does not work


If the Volume goes up with the remote controller then the fault is the failure of the stepper motor on the volume controller knob unit. The digital output must be converted through the D/A converter to a motor driver to show the indication of volume .
However if there is no change with the remote then the processor output and the converter section must be traced to find the loss of signal- possible failure of a digital gate.

I've been trying to figure out how to adjust my sound because ever since I got the KDC MP642U my bass has been nearly non existant. I looked in the manual and it says to go to the sound category to adjust,...


You've probably figured this out by now, but you are supposed to go through the FNC button, click the control knob left, scroll down to SOUND, click and it will show you a menu with Control, Setup, and Preset, etc., and under the Control will list the EQ, bass boost, and highway sound. Under Setup you can adjust the frequency sensitivity under the X-Over option, the type of cabin, location of speakers for central sound, it's all there. Also, on the main display, if you hold the volume knob down for a second, you can adjust the dB level. If still nothing, check if the sub is on. On the main display, hold down on the control knob for two seconds, if will toggle the sub on or off. One thing I'm stumped by however is that I am either getting no subwoofer output, or just any amplifier output at all when trying to use the aux source and the USB source. I had gone through all these settings under each source, i still got nothing. I would assume that this can't not be an option for these sources. I need help.

Denon AVR 1910 Volume Level


My Pioneer VSX-36TX (circa 2002) does the same thing. Modern AVR's count up from minus something to 0db and go just a few db higher into 'plus' territory. It seems arbitrary but that's how it is.

Ask yourself this: who ever really turned the volume knob up to maximum on any amp on purpose, and had speakers survive it? In other words, why have all that capacity on a potentiometer if you never use it?

Little known fact: With that in mind, Bose Corp actually designed a product that intentionally used the full physical travel of a volume control - the Bose Acoustic Wave Music System.
