As this receiver does not have automatic speaker calibration, you need to set the volumes manually. The best is if the left and right speakers are at the same distance from you (then their volumes can be equal). If one speaker is at more distance than the other, the volume must be higher for this speaker.
You can find instruction for volume setting at p. 21 of your receiver manual. There you can also find settings of the speaker mode - that depends on the specific speakers you have. You can define for each of 5 speakers if they are Large/Small/None (on this setting depends where will be the lowest bass tones directed).

SOURCE: Yamaha RX-V1400 receiver powers off, in case it becomes louder

Hey, yeah that can be frustrating.

When you turn it up do you hear the relay or a clicking sound, then you turn it on and it comes back below the +2db?

Try unplugging All the speaker wires from the unit. Turn on the unit and listen for the click.
after the click, turn it up past the 2+ db mark and see if you hear it click or shut down. If it did not click off, then suspect a shorted crossover on one of your speakers.
2nd test is to plug in One speaker, and test it at high volume, it will not harm it. If it shuts off disconnect that speaker and try another. Only one at a time.
If it works at high volume, you need to isolate one of your speakers and i bet it has a shorted crossover that has been cooked. P.S. If one is bad, suspect they will fail at a later date.
If they all fail, use a friends speaker and try it before sending it to a repair shop.

P.S. i found one on ebay i think you can get for under $100 bucks in the box.

Most likely you have pressed the speaker AB switch, try pressing it again and see if it works.

I have a yamaha rx-v493 reciever and no speakers what should i get that wont blow and wont empty my wallet


Of course you know you're asking a question that could attract more opinion than useful facts.

If you watch the volume and buy efficient name-brand multichannel speakers with REAL bass-handling capacity you'll probably love the sound without endangering your speakers or your ears.

As it is distortion more than raw power that kills speakers you need to keep away from pushing the amps beyond their RATED power (roughly 70 wpc into 8-ohms, @1khz, <.04%THD. I'm a little concerned that the spec in the manual qualifies it as only 1khz instead of the ore honest and meaningful 20-20000 hz it states for the RX-V393.

An under-powered amp will kill speakers faster than an over-poweredf one as it will enter its high distortion region much sooner.

Play-it-by-ear is good advice. If the amps sound strained, back off the volume.

Your room size will play a huge part in the perceived loudness while your household's aesthetic sensibilites will limit the size and visibility of the speakers. Compromise between form and function is almost guaranteed.

Being a long-time audio enthisiast/collector, set in my ways and unwilling to bow to appearance at the cost of the sound, I use full-size (70's and 80's era) Bose speakers (901's and 301's) throughout the room and augment them with a couple of huge subs and large Kenwood 777 center speakers. It ain't cheap or pretty but it rocks movies and music.

I would recommend you do some research into "home theater speaker recommendations" and read some user comments for the various offerings out there. You'll be in a relationship with your A/V system for a long time. Take the time to get it right.

The REC OUT jacks on the back are usually the best as they are not affected by the system volume. You'll need an RCA L and R Male to Headphone (1/4" female) adapter (available at Radio Shack and online sellers).

What does it mean when it says small or large speaker setting for main center and surround speakers


If you select small, the receiver will send more bass to the subwoofer. Most people prefer more bass.

Trying to hook up Zone B stereo speakers in two additional rooms.


The infrared mentioned by the manual is most likely an extension possibility to use the remote control in each room, forget that part.
What you need to do is quite simpel, after connecting all speakers, you should indicate in the setup menu of each zone which speakers are connected and do as follows:
in main room select 5.1 setup, for the other zone select only the left and right front speakers.
Your EXTRA SP indicates the extra speakers for 7.1 setup and when set to zone B it recognises only 1 speaker.

So read carefully the manual how to connect Zone 2 speakers and connect that way, than carefully walk through the setup menu to setup the zone 2 correctly.

Hi...
Without a huge mess, I would suggest one of the multi-speaker selectors that partsexpress.com sells or a similar item.
Just put "speaker slector" in their search engine.

If youre going to 8 other rooms..you might try a couple of wireless speaker systems too. They work in stereo and ....no wires

Vocals missing while playing with 2 speakers


Go to the amp "Basic Setup" and alter basic setup according to
- the size of the room (details in the manual)
- alter the no. of channels e.g. if you have only 2 front speakers, change the channels to 2.1 (.1 for the subwoof)
- Once the setup is changed, the amp pumps in sound according to the set up

All the best
