Re: power middle speaker

Yes, you must hook the center speaker to a tuner, or it will not work.

My question is. . Is it possible to use a philips HTS3450 surround sound system without the blueray player?

Depends on how you intend to hook it up otherwise you will get no sound from the speakers if you delete the DVD player from the circuit. The speakers require a power source and this is provided via the DVD player.

You cannot connect those speakers up to an amplifier or an AV Receiver because the speaker connections are not compatible. The connections to the speaker wire where they plug into the DVD player would have to be changed because there needs to be a left and right wiring connection for each speaker.

So if I were you I would not mess with the system and just route everything via the DVD as it is designed to be done.

My Sound Space12 powers on but there's no display and no manual or remote functions to operate the discs or the other functions.Can you provide a answer.regards

If the system is connected properly and the main tuner power is on you will see the orange standby light on in the front of the main diamond shaped control unit. If that light is not on, you have not connected the system and power cables properly.

If the standby light is not lit, press the power on/off button in the middle of the rectangular processor/tuner to turn it off and unplug the main power cord from the main tuner/processor from the wall. Next, ensure that all of the power, video and audio cables from the diamond shaped control unit are properly connected to the large tuner/processor. Since you are there, check any other av in/out connections.

Now that you have checked and adjusted the cables between the controller and the tuner, plug the tuner back into the wall and push the power on button. Now check the standby light again on the diamond shaped controller unit.

Once that light is lit, press the silver, horizontal on button in the middle of the diamond shaped display unit, or the Power Standby/On button on your main remote control and you are operational.

Tuner Keeps Turning Off when a Loud Noise is Played

It's a receiver, not a tuner.

Clearly something is overloading it or forcing it into self protection.

What else is drawing power from the same souce as the receiver, or from its convenience outlet. There IS a limit to how much current it will support.

Try checking the speaker connections and their impedance to make sure it's not unacceptably low.

start with the tuner, hook up the equalizer to the tuner, then on the rear of the equilizer hook up all the peripherals except the amps which will go to the tuner outputs and all will feed thru the tuner to the amps and out to the speakers

Rear speakers not working

Your FM tuner will only generate sound from the front sepakers. CD's, Tape, and I guess mp3 player, as well, will only play through the front speakers.
I've included a link for the manual. The audio on this rig is pretty complex. read through the info, especially pages 11,12,13, and play with the audio controls.

Check the setup menu on your TV. Many models require that you choose between using the internal speakers and using the speaker outputs. Sometimes the TV menu choices are "FIXED" (audio output) or "VARIABLE" (internal speakers).
