SOURCE: Left front main speaker level drops after being on for a few hours

Run the speaker test mode :

While running the speaker test tone to balance your speakers, you cannot adjust the balance of the Main speakers independently. The speaker test allows you to balance the sound (dB) levels of the Center speaker, Rear Left, Rear Right speakers to match the level of the main speakers. So, the first thing you do is press the [TEST] button on the remote. Next, adjust the [MASTER VOLUME CONTROL] until you can adequately hear the level from the main left and right speakers. Then, as the tone travels clockwise to each speaker, listen carefully from your main seating position in the room to determine which speakers (if any) need to be adjusted in level (either up or down) in order to balanced the sound to the main speakers output. Then adjust the Center, Rear Left or Rear Right speakers accordingly until the proper balance of level is attained. If you would like to change the level between the mains, you can use the [BALANCE CONTROL] either located on the front panel of the receiver or in the Set-Menu. A common challenge people have is that they try to adjust the main speakers to match the center or rear levels. If your center speaker is louder than your mains, You cannot adjust the main level up, you need to adjust the center speaker level down. All speakers need to be adjusted to match the main level.

SOURCE: The subwoofer is not working on our Bose 5.1 surround speakers.

First of all you should never indicate speakers as Large unless they can produce below 20Hz (which is very low), otherwise always set your speakers to Small.

Second, did you also indicate in teh setupmenu that you have a subwoofer? Because if all speakers are set to Large some receivers will omit a subwoofer because Large indicates the speakers can reproduce all sounds even below 20Hz.

So walk through your setup menu, say YES when the sub (SFW) is asked for and that should do the trick.

SOURCE: Center and surround speakers work, but front right and front left speakers do not put out any sound

I had the same problem. Set the reciever on 6 channel stereo. On this setting, you should be getting the same sound out of each speaker. Isolate which speakers aren't getting sound. Now, on your speaker switch (the A/B button), select A. If that doesn't fix it, select B. If that doesn't fix it, try A and B (if you can on your reciever).

Now, when you switch back to pro-logic, make sure your a/b channel switch is in the position that worked in 6 channel stereo. Yamaha recievers have a memory, and when you switch various modes, it makes auto adjustments based on what you had set in the past.

Hope this helps

SOURCE: Speaker output

Yes, there are relay type switches associated with those outputs. Your RX-V1 is not dying.
Just plug a pin plug in and out of the dead channel to bump the switch. You will hear the speaker
come on. If it doesn't come on,do the plug jack in an out of the pre out again. It will come on.
You can use the test tone to check all channels and rebalance volume levels. You are making the
pre out connect to its power amp. It seems the problem got better when activating those switches. Most likely a cleaning issue. You can also jump the mains and center, and there is also
a modification to jump all channels. I bought my RX-V1 very cheap because of this and love it.
Of course outboard power amp would solve all, but getting this reciever to connect to it's own
power amp has been thrilling as far as bang for the buck. I do use the front effects also, and like
them. It may seem like a pain, but it is worth it to get those channels going.

Need help installing speakers to receiver


On the back of the receiver you will find the connections for the right and left speaker, OR if it is surround sound you will find, right front, right rear, left front, left rear, and center or bass. The connections can be RCA type jacks or they can be wire clip type.

Depending on the connections on the receiver and on the speakers, the wire will have to match the connections on each end. The wire needs to be large enough to handle the power output of the receiver. Wire can not be too large but it can be too small. Larger wire is more expensive, so there is no benefit in purchasing excessively large wire. Packaging should designate the power handling capability of the wire. The wire should not be much longer than is necessary to place the speakers where you want them. Too long wire unnecessarily cuts down on the power to the speakers. Don

In dolby digital mode i can not get any voice volume. All other sounds are ok


Assuming that you mean Dolby digital 5.1, confirm that you have a center channel properly connected and perform the following;

Using the remote, enter the menu on the receiver and navigate to the selection labeled "LEVEL." Toggle through the selections until you reach the "CENTER CHANNEL". You will be able to use the remote to increase the volume of that channel in .5dB increments.

The manual implies that 'subwoofer=Yes' is independent of the rest of the speaker settings, but that it would be set AFTER selecting the other speaker configuration from the list of 11 possibilities.

No sound out of right main when watching DVR/TV or VHS


When watching TV or VHS the sound should be stereo and therefor come out of the the 2 front speakers. I suspect you now have sound out of the left front and the center speaker which indicates you connected the center speaker to the right front speakerterminal and the right front to the center terminal.

Just check if all speakers are connected to the correspondent speakerterminal.

If this is correct and the problem persists, try to connect another speaker to the right front terminal to see of the terminal or speaker is not working properly. If another speaker does work on the same connection, your right speaker might be damaged which might not be heard when listening to 5.1 because of the surround sound.

Hi, you can tell your amp there is no center speaker and the sound will be diverted to the left and right or for better sound if you can get a custom install speaker built into the wall or if the tv is high up on the wall put your center in the ceiling.

hope this helps.

Can i use small satelite speakers with my big front speakers?


Hi, I asume your setting up a home theater with five speakers a center left and right and rear surrounds don't know if you have a subwoofer. The large speakers in the front will work fine if you set the amp to large front speakers the bass will be sent to these. If you have a subwoofer set, the amp to small front speakers and the bass will be directed to it. Also try to get a center channel speaker that sounds somewhat like your large speakers.
