Low speaker volume for B Side Speakers...

I hooked up a buddies Sony Home theatre recently in which I have a separate set of environmental speakers wired to the front B side wired with a volume switch on the patio. The home theatre works well with the Bose Acousta Mass system and powered sub. However, when I switch to the B speakers - I get the sub still on but minimal volume is directed to the outside speakers. If I put A+B on reduced sound is everywhere. It seems the amp is set up to have B speakers only used as an additional front speakers in surround operation. I would have expected the B side would be able to be used as 2 channel speakers for audio only or in concert with the A side with equal power to all speakers.

Is this a setting on the amp that will fix this? Or is it more practical to buy a separate amp for outside and use the Home theatre amp as a pre amp and wire the second amp through the 2nd Source audio out?

Have a Philips 5000 series home theater system and just hooked it up and can not get any sound from the left side speakers front and rear. What should I do or I did not do Thanks.


Most of these home theatre systems come with a speaker set up. Try that. Also look at the speaker settings. It's possible that the speakers you mentioned are switched off, or their output is set to low.

How do i hook external speakers to sony bravia television


The proper way to do this would be to use the audio output from the TV, either analogue left and right or the optical port, and send it into an dedicated amplifier or AV receiver. You can then use the amplifier or receiver to power the external speakers. If you are using a dedicated amplifier with no volume control you will want to change the audio output setting on the TV to "variable out" as oppose to its current "fixed out"settings. You can find this in the TV menu, usually under the audio settings. This will allow you to use the current TV remote to adjust the audio volume coming out of the external speakers.

Do you have outputs for both A and B speakers? If so you can easily hook the outside speakers to the B outputs.

I can't get surround sound from my theatre system


Read your manual , there is a level setting for each channel as well as a test function. Also remember most media on pro-logic mode dont have to loud sound from the rear speakers. Only a forced mono mode may give you louder sound at the rear. Regards PSP

Home theatre but TV without audio outlet


I would suggest that you smash
Philips HTS w/a hammer!
I had better sound from TV alone! Only 2 speakers put out sound from TV. Recordings from DVR can not be heard very well w/all volumes at max. System sucks! You get what you pay for! $2500 LCD TV sounds worse w/Philips HTS than my son's $300 TV! ALL cables hooked up as instucted!!!!
