Are your speakers out of phase? Check the wiring on the back of the amp and make sure you have not crossed the cables see here for more details http://www.richardfarrar.com/are-your-speakers-wired-correctly/

If you can't hear the difference maybe the bass frequency which is moving the speakers is below your hearing range.

I think you may have a "loudness" button on that amp -- if you do, turn off the loudness -- this is a bass booster.

But, in general, bass speakers are designed to move in & out a lot. They have to move a lot of air to produce the bass sound.

    Well, that seems very odd. Have you checked to see that the + / - connections from amp to speakers are connected the same way on both amp and speaker terminals?

If the fuse was blown on the 220-250 V side, I am assuming that you are in the UK, if you aren't , but are in the US, change the power setting dial/switch on the back to 100-120v and you might be good to go. Also, I know this may sound silly, but make sure that the speaker selector switch is pressed in or set to a speaker set ( A or B). Love the Sansui gear, have many complete systems myself!

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.

E1@cox.neti have a jvc rx-809v and I was wondering if it was posibbie to hook up an a sansui amp to compinsate for the lack of base


You mean 'bass'.

Amplifiers only amplify what is already there in the signal. By design, with all controls set to neutral or flat, they don't create or loose anything.

Speakers, on the other hand, are responsible for turning the electrical input into moving air. Good bass usually requires moving a lot of air.

Poor speaker placement or speakers wired out of phase with each other can **** the bass out of a room.

Web search for articles on bass response and speaker placement.

This receiver has a built-in Equalizer. Perhaps you could use IT to compensate for the tonal shortcomings of the speakers and environment.

Put the jumpers back in as shown. Hook your speaker leads to either top or bottom. The entire array of drivers will be active.

Make your receiver aware they are LARGE for the purposes of bass reproduction so some bass will get out to them. FYI, many AVR's will only allow Large Rear speaker selection if you also have Large Fronts. Refer to the manual(s).

Noise/No Bass in Delco Systems stereo


You have a possible fault in your wiring of the speakers, the Phases of the speakers are crossed over resulting in cancelling of the low frequency- bass frequency. Hence please reconnect the speakers front and rear with the positive/ negative to the corresponding positive and negative of the speakers.If you are unable to fix the marking of the polarity use 1.5 Volt cell to connect to the speakers , if the speaker moves up the terminal on the positve of battery is positive. reconnect and test with a good bass song for result. Helpful. Good day

How would I attach my hi-fi Goodmans Speakers to a LSD TV


Your best bet to improve the bass is to attach the audio output of your HDTV to a stereo unit and amplify the audio with the amplifier. Attaching the speakers to the HDTV will not improve the sound much. Sorry.

How to incrise the bass of sony MHC-RV777d


Is it possible that the speakers are out of phase, where one speaker is moving out, the other is moving in, resulting in zero bass?

Other than checking wires, making sure + on amp is linked to + on speaker, try changing the eq settings, or sit them next to a wall - walls help bass a lot.
