Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I have a Yamaha HTR 5960 receiver hooked up to a Klipsch 10" synergy sub. The system has been set up for about 6 years and the sub suddenly quit working. I have checked connections and the sub is getting power but no sound. I have switched cables and still not working. Please help.

If you remove the signal cable from the amplifier while the Sub is switched on (turned down about half way) you should hear a thump sound. If you do that proves that your sub is working and you need to look at your Yamaha. Perhaps the sub channel has been disabled in the logic settings. Check the speaker configuration pages. If all looks well reset your amp to factory settings and try again. I have had a logic glitch which was fixed in this way.

SOURCE: sub thumps repeatedly

since it still thumps i suspect the speaker is ok, but i suspect you have an electronic problem in the amp. since it is a powered sup & has the ability to auto turn on it has electronic circuits inside, take it to a service center for an estimate

SOURCE: klipsch subwoofer

its all about impedance matching...did you check to see that the new yamahas would drive from the system, before installing them? sounds like you will need to possibly add a matching transformer or other device on this one.

SOURCE: My Klipsch synergy subwoofer not working

No sound problem is power amplifier trouble maybe the IC there is defected or cold solder of joint of the parts.Cold solder issues - each component is soldered into small holes on the printed circuit board which in turn connects said component to the other components. Due to time, heat, use, some solder joints would be cracked or loose. It is possible that the cold solder is still minimally connected (hanging by a thread). When the receiver turns on heat would be generated which would be sufficient to further loosen up the solder joint to the point it no longer provides electrical contact. Jarring the unit creates movement inside enough to re establish the contact, sometime good enough sometimes not enough.

Again, since the unit still operates (sometimes) then it is highly probable that there are no defective components. As you have surmised, it is possibly a loose connection, solder joints are "connections" except that molten soldering lead is used to attach/connect the component to the board, "loose connection" in this sense is equal to "cold solder".

Again on the assumption of no defective parts, then seeking a more experienced buddy for the soldering might be to your advantage. This is of course in addition to the possible electrical hazards when repairing....

Good luck:

I have a Pioneer VSX 823 - K, and when I hook up my Klipsch HG-12 300 watt subwoofer to it, the receiver is prone to overheating or just shutting off with too much bass. Is there a fix to this?


This is receiver thermal going in protect issue and has no bearing to your sub, The sub has its own power amp and not supplied by the receiver. Thermal module may be bad. See a tech.

I have a Klipsch Sub-10 It is NOT working. I am not sure what happened. It was just fine last week. It's powered up and everthing but not throwing any bass. It was also detected during the auto setup.


If you're saying the auto setup produced sound then the sub and its amp are fine.

So we need to examine the source electronics for actual playback settings. Give a hint of what that might be.

How do I hook up a non powered sub woofer on my htr-5630?


You will need an amplifier or 2 channel receiver. Hook the sub out rca jack to the rca inputs on this new amp or receiver and hook the speaker terminals on sub to speaker terminals on same amp or receiver. Your Yamaha receiver doesn't have any power for a passive sub.Just pick up any old fairly high powered receiver for fifty dollars and you're good to go.I use old dolby pro logic receivers as they are a dime a dozen today. Good luck.

Does your reciever use a remote control?

If so, you should be aware that on many recievers and surround amplifiers some of the functions may only be accessible via the remote control (the best way to learn about it is to consult the user manual).

I have a Pioneer VSA-730 surround amplifier and the only way i can change the mix levels for surround/sub/center speakers is by a remote control. My friend had the same problem and, after reading the manual, he discovered that he actually needs to use the remote control to access all functions of the amplifier.

Good luck and best regards
