Home theater system

My subwoofer is about an inch and a half away from the wall, i was cleaning and accidentely hit the subwoofer with the coffee table. The table then pushed the subwoofer into the wall, which pushed on the power cable. From this point, i couldnt figure out what was wrong with my system. When i went to turn the power on the system, the subwoofer didnt turn on. I disconnected and reconnected everything, but still the stand-by light on the subwoofer wont turn on. could it be a fuse or what

How do i fix my remote to work my home theater. i have a htp-071 and my remote stopped working. the battries are brand new. I went away for the weekend and came home, remote didnt work. please help.

Test remote for operation. Problem is with either the remote or the receiver in the home theater.
Clean all battery contacts and install new, tested, working batteries in remote. Turn on am radio and tune AM dial to about 600 - turn up volume. Then bring remote to about one inch from radio and hit button on remote. You should hear a beep as long as you hold the button down. Every button will respond likewise. If nada at all remote is trashed, if works with some buttons then you have a partially operating remote. Try cleaning contacts for buttons that do not work or use some aluminum foil under those non working contacts.

Can i put an extra sub woofer on my lg da3525 via the woofer out socket and what plug do i require to do this


How to Connect 2 Subwoofers to One Receiver

Subwoofers produce the deep bass sounds that give home theater the realism of being at the movies. A good subwoofer can rattle the walls during action sequences, while adding depth to recorded music and a heightened sense of feeling in the midst of a televised sporting event. Because most home theater receivers are equipped with a single subwoofer jack, connecting a second subwoofer requires a simple audio adapter available at electronics stores. Self-powered subwoofers have their own built-in amplifiers to drive the bass speakers, so they cannot drain power on the main receiver in a system and thus pose no danger to the equipment, even when an extra subwoofer is connected.

Things You'll Need:

Home theater receiver
Y-adapter with RCA jacks on two ends and an RCA plug on the other, available at electronics stores.
2 RCA subwoofer cables
2 subwoofers


Plug the Y-adapter into the home theater receiver's "Subwoofer OUT" jack.

Connect an RCA subwoofer cable to each jack on the Y adapter and route the cables to the subwoofers in the room. Because subwoofers deliver an omnidirectional sound, the boxes can be placed anywhere they won't get in the way, but within reach of an electrical outlet..

Plug an RCA cable into the "Sub IN" jack on the back of each subwoofer.

Connect the subwoofers to wall outlets and turn on each unit by pressing the power button, typically located on the back panel.

Adjust the volume and crossover settings on each subwoofer as desired. The crossover adjustment knob tells the subwppfer which low-end frequencies to reproduce from the audio signal, such as a movie on DVD. All frequencies higher than the crossover setting will be transferred to the other speakers connected to the receiver.

Tips & Warnings

Use subwoofers that are closely matched in power, as rated in watts, when using two subwoofers in a home theater setup.

Disconnect the subwoofers from the power supply while making the audio connections.

Have a nice day...

My subwoofer doesn't seem loud enough. I have it set to 80%. Is there other settings that might solve this problem?

Bas response is highly dependent on room boundaries, speaker placement and relative listening position.

Page 13
"Place the subwoofer at the corner of the

room. Otherwise, keep it at least one
meter away from the TV."

You might experiment with moving the sub around.

My subwoofer shuts off when I turn it up too loud. How do I fix it?

Don't turn it up so loud.
Or get a bigger subwoofer.

It's got a junk 6.5 inch speaker and the amp barely does 50 clean watts.
Claims 167 Watts at 10% distortion - impossible when it is drawing 160.
Drive it too hard and protection circuit will cut in and shut it down.

RCA RT2870 home theater system 'welcome' screen

Well, I just returned the unit. RCA replied with the following solution:
Let the unit sit with the AC power cord out of the wall for a couple of
hours. Then hit the power button 10-15 times (with the AC power cord still
out of the wall socket!) and then try again.

Panasonic home theater system pt760

Make sure you have put the transmitter for the wirless speaker in the slot on the back of the reciever, it is a slim white device that is about 3 to 5 inches long?? and maybe half an inch thick. and make sure it is put in the right way.

Then make sure the wireless speaker is plugged in to the wall outlet.

If this does not work for you it may require being taken in to an authorized panasonic service center. when one part of the wireless system fails (transmitter or reciever) they both must be replaced. they are not interchangable from one panasonic to another.
They have a code in each unit that lets the wireless speaker that came with it only work with the reciever it was sold with.

I have even seen times where the store that sells them swapped the transmitters of two units and then they had two customers very mad at them because the wireless speakers did not work for either person.

Let me know if I can be of any more help.

in normal setup no wall-mount speaker- you must put subwoofer in the floor and vibration is normal for low frequencey of subwoofer.
