You are currect that the pioneer unit will get overloaded with this speakers connected.for this you require a receiver which suits the voltage out put and input of the receiver.there are many such receivers which will support your system of speakers
you can get it at
www.radioshack.com
just let them know what speakers you have and they will provide you the exact speaker with proper current rates.

    the best buy and radioshack sites are one of the best online stores have all types of products .

    Q: What is the difference between Dolby Digital-ready and full Dolby Digital receivers?
    A: A full-fledged Dolby Digital receiver includes a built-in decoder to process the multichannel signal encoded on many DVD discs and Dolby Digital broadcasts. To most manufacturers, Dolby Digital-ready means that the receiver has 5.1-channel input to accommodate an outboard decoder, but it cannot decode the Dolby Digital without one.

    Q: How many connection jacks do I need?
    A: This depends on how much equipment you need to connect to your receiver. But keep in mind that all receivers may not have the number of connections you desire. Before buying, make sure the receiver has enough audio and video inputs for your current and future needs. Basic connections for video include:
    •Composite video inputs
    •S-video inputs
    •Front-panel audio/video inputs
    •Component video inputs
    •Monitor outputs
    •VCR inputs and outputs

    On the audio side, the receiver should have the following:
    •Dolby Digital input
    •Digital audio inputs/outputs
    •Stereo audio inputs
    •Loop-through inputs/outputs for recording media
    •Subwoofer output


    Back to Top

    Q: Can I still hook up a subwoofer if the receiver I want doesn't have a subwoofer output?
    A: Yes. Just hook it up in line between your receiver and main stereo speakers. Run one set of speaker wires from the receiver's A speaker outputs to the subwoofer, and then run another set of speaker wires from the subwoofer to your main stereo speakers. This type of connection works whether you have a powered sub (with its own built-in or external amplifier) or a passive sub (which uses power from your receiver).

    Q: Can I hook up surround sound to my stereo speaker outputs?
    A: No. Stereo speaker outputs are only useful for connecting a pair of stereo speakers for an area in or around the house. Surround sound is a separate channel of information that must be decoded by a Dolby surround decoder.

    Q: Can I connect my equalizer to my receiver?
    A: That depends on the equalizer. Most equalizers and other external sound processors require a preamp-level input/output loop because the sound must flow out of the receiver, through the equalizer, then back into the receiver. Look for a receiver with a tape monitor loop, a versatile type of tape input/output that can be used for either recording and playing back from an audio tape deck or for connecting your equalizer.

I would suggest a 400w amp for the front. Just hook it up to the front inputs on receiver. Rear is for bass and front is for high.

    I would suggest Blaupunk, alpine, or something that puts out 50watts by 4 instead of 40X4

    Most of the receivers have built in surge protection that will shut it off if it is turned up to loud. I suggest turning up amp or getting seprate amp for the fronts and use the highs instead of rear lows on receiver.

I've just been given a Wharfedale S-990 Amplifier, Tuner CD etc tower - but without any speakers. Output is 2x50W - but the impedence isn't specified. I'm just looking for advice on what...


Anything in the neighborhood of 8-ohms will usually fly safely with standard audio amplifiers. At only 50w x 2 you want efficient speakers. Watch the volume as this amp may clip if driven too hard. THAT will kill any speaker.

This owner had Valdus 200's and was happy. But just about any quality speaker in the 100w range should work out.

I just brought some wharfedale one-three speakers and have them hooked up as the rear speakers. Can i get the sub to play still and do i hook the speaker wires in the top or bottom?


Do you mean "Modus 13"?

See picture 6...

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).

The rubber around one of my woofers is torn, anyway to repair that?


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
The only way to fix the torn rubber is to use a rubber tape usually equipped in the box that comes from the manufacturer. This special tape is also easily available in the market. All other adhesives will effect the working of the woofer.

Best of Luck,
Concerned.

I have 1 set of wharfedale speakers valdus 400 .power handling (programme) 150W .normal impedance 4-8ohms.1 of the tweeter is not working .please advise how to repair asap ,thanks


you should first try if the driver is really gone or not, maybe it's just a wiring problem, also there can be something wrong with the cross-over network. Check the tweeter with a multimeter, if you don't see something between 2-16 ohms, you need a new one (or two, you probably won't be able to find the original part, so you'll have to change both left and right channel drivers) but if you see the desired impedance on the meter, check the internal wiring, crossover solder joints, capacitors, etc. I hope this helps.

Wharfedale Valdus 400 Speakers


Yes, you can easily check it by removing it and swapping it with your other one. If the one from the second cabinet works, then the speaker itself has died. If not, either the wiring is the problem, or the crossover in the cabinet. If you take the first speaker that wasn't working, and put it in the second cabinet and it works, then likely it's your crossover. Please rate my answer, thanks.

Speaker connection from Denon AVR 2105 to Wharfedale suround


The spkrs sound like they are bi-amp spkrs, meaning you have multiple terminals on the backs of each spkr, the jumpers on the spkrs should be connected as such. Now you just connect the spkrs according to the Denon spkr conection diagram. Do not use the surround back unless you have 6 or 7 pair of spkrs
