Receiver amp problem?

Recently (2 mos.), sound to the speakers is not clear. Not "crackly". Particularly with bass. It seems that the signal coming from the receiver is poor. It is the same for all outputs (CD, tuner, etc.). I have tested with other speakers and other speaker wire. Thoughts?

    About a month ago had a small smell of burnt electronics and thought it was from the new TV I bought, but nothing was wrong. Yesterday heard my power regulator for the computer complaining (beeping) as if either I got a huge voltage spike in my electricity (or maybe something shorted somewhere) but the lights or circuit breaker of the house did not go out. Then at night went to listen to receiver and I notice the it was working partially. This is, everything works, sound through all channels, etc BUT it has lost VOLUME this is when volume at 35 out of 60, it sounds like 10 out of 60. Also it lost definition, the sub for example seems to have frequency missing. Could it be that some audio/output amplifier IC burnt? How many IC amplifier does this unit have? If one burnt would the symptom be as describe above?  Am I in the right direction to what is my receiver problem? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Output distortion from bass amp


The amp is clipping the signal. This could be from the input being too high. The impedance being too low or the finals are damaged.

I have Denon AVR-2310...but lost operating manual ! In audio set up, more specifically speaker configuration, a choice is given between " FTE", and "FTE +main". What is the...


The manual... http://www.retrevo.com/support/Denon-AVR-2310CI-Receivers-manual/id/23452bh638/t/2/

I'm pretty sure you mean "LFE + Main".

You need to identify the speakers to the receiver as Large or Small regarding their bass-handling capacity more than their actual size.

"LFE" removes the possibly overloading bass in a given speaker channel containing 'small' speakers and sends it to the subwoofer.

"LFE + Main" is sort of explained on page 29 "Bass Setting". The intent of LFE+Main is to task your subwoofer with the bass that ALSO exists on all other speaker channels regardless of their ability to handle it all by themselves. As you can imagine, this might make the subwoofer respond to sonic events that are actually supposed to be directional from, say, the rear channel(s). In that case the event might seem to come from wherever the sub is located instead of the intended direction; or at the very least it might seem to come from both places which is probably not what the sound engineers intended when they recorded the piece.

Having full-range speakers 360-degrees around PLUS a subwoofer, I don't subscribe to the 'bass-is-non-directional' school of thought. If you've ever felt the concussion from and subconsciously glanced toward one of the speakers after, say, a huge explosion, the system is working.

Cerwin Vega SUB8...how do I connect


grady66,
We will start with the easy one, Phase. The phase selector is a setting that can be adjusted by sound; which one sounds better? Either one will work fine. It's mainly for situations where the sub enclosure is located at a distance or behind the listening area. The 'in and out' crossover selector and the input from the receiver goes together. The 'in and out' crossover selector is asking if you want to use the internal crossover to block the bass from getting to the satellite speakers. Most home surround sound receivers only have the one sub out and most subs have both left and right inputs. When there is a single signal being fed to the sub you use the subs left input or buy a splitter and send the signal into both left and right, but either way will work equally the same.

There is two ways to connect the speakers to the receiver.

1) Cross-over 'In': you connect the output speaker wires from the receiver to the speaker inputs on the sub and the speaker outputs on the sub to the satellite speakers; the sub will get its sound from the input speaker wires.

2) Cross-over 'Out': you connect the sub to the receiver using the receiver's single sub out, then connect the satellite speakers directly to the receiver's speakers outputs; in this configuration the satellite speakers are given a full range of signal including the bass.

I have used #2 with the same system and had great results.

OVERLOAD


First of all the KEF is a powered sub which means that it wants a line level signal NOT a speaker level. Send the signal from a tape output or pre-amp output to the sub input. The overload is because the impedence load for the speaker output is too low and looks like a short to the amp. Continued attempts to connect the system as described will result in damage to the output section of the amp.

Please let me know if you need more info.

Sonance 275 no getting sound to speakers


The Sonamp 275 has Signal LEDs on the front panel, above the Volume pots. If signal is present at the RCA inputs, the Signal LEDs will be blinking.
Most likely, there isn't any line level audio signal coming from the receiver. Hook RCAs to Tape Output or MD output and check system using the Tuner which is an analog signal.

Onkyo TX-SR606 bass treble settings seem to make no difference


I ran into the same issue and was stumped at first. Then I noticed somehow I had changed the sound processing to "Direct" which meant the signal coming from the source was bypassing all of the control in the receiver. All I had to do is select another option (press stereo for example on the remote) and kick it out of the direct mode.

Very low ouput from subwoofer preout


The problem was that some subwoofers (inluding my velodyne model) cannot process the LFE signals through the line level inputs on its amps, so the other way to run your subwoofer is to run the front left and right speaker outputs from your receiver to the speaker-level inputs on your sub, and then plug your front and left speakers into the soeaker level outputs on the sub. you have to set the onkyo receiver to "Subwoofer: No". that way the LFE signals are sent through the front speaker channels and you will get the same BASS output as if using the line-level input. O So yes it does require a bit more speaker cable, but it works fine now.

JVC RX-618V SOUND IS MUFFLED


check to see if the radio is clear. If it is it may be the signal going into the amplifier. if it is muffled as well, depending if you have an Equalizer hooked to the unit. This also could cause the problem. Finally check the bass, treble balance and volume knob but turn them back and forth while unit is on and see if signal clears up momentarily. if this is the case the control knobs need to be cleaned. Also spin the connection jacks {RCAs} in the rear and see if this clears it up. If not you may have to have the unit serviced by a professional.
