Question about Sony MHC-M300AV CD Shelf System

1 Answer

Need a new stereo to work with the old speakers

Hi, I have an old Sony MHC M300AV stereo system with 2 front speakers (6 Ohm impedance) , 1 center speaker (6 Ohm) and 2 rear speakers (12 Ohm). I would like to replace the stereo with something contemporary that is compatible with those speakers. I basically only need a new stereo that would work with the old speakers because I want to keep them. Is there anything nowadays that could use those speakers? Thank you.

Any 5.1 surround system will work with this. It is better to be high in impedence than too low.

Want to use my current speakers with a new surround sound system. Current system is 5.1 channels, rated at 100w per channel @ 8. Ohms. New System is rated 145watts, 5.2 channels at 6 Ohms. Will b ok?


Hi Ronald.
8 Ohm speakers will work just fine as replacements for the
6 ohm speakers. When fitting speakers you need to consider
The power handling capability. The impedance and the frequencies
involved. Power handling is expressed in wattage ie 100W.
Unfortunately this can be expressed in rms, max or peak music. The rms value (root mean square) is the only really relevant figure as this is the continuose handling power at 1 KHz. The impedance
is the resistance that the amp sees but is not a dc resistance and
varies with frequency. The lower the impedance the more power
will be drawn from the amp. In the event of a short circuit across
the speaker the amp will try to deliver infinite power into an infinitly
small load in an infinitesimal amount of time and will self destruct.
Using an 8 Ohm speaker draws less power than a 6 Ohm speaker.
Connecting speakers in parallel; results in the impedance beingreduced. For example two 8 Ohm speakers in parallel will result
in a 4 Ohm impedance load but in series will be 16 Ohms.
Incidentally the the .1 (5.1) is the sub woofer which only has
to handle the bass frequencies, a small percentage of the
amplifiers overall frequency response..
Connect your speakers and then power up the amp last
after double checking there are no shorts on the speaker
cables.
All the very best from Vintie.

Amp is cutting out


you may find that you are using speakers with the incorrect impedance, check for the ohm symbol on the amp and make sure it matches the speakers rating, some amps have an option to select the impedance on the back

Hi Thanks for your help, One year old Sony mini


sir i think ypur unit is ok and run correctly... try to check your speaker maybe your speaker got open or burnt... you can test it by swapping your speaker to another unit or you can test your speaker using multitester...just point your selector at resistance test a speaker has 8ohms reading....


the speaker has a two terminal.. a positive terminal and a negative terminal... your multitester has a two lead.. red lead which is a positive and a black lead which is negative..
measure-speaker-impedance-1.1-800x800.jpg Multimeter probe sockets (NL Graphics) Insert the probes of a digital multimeter in the correct sockets of the multimeter. There may be several different sockets for the probes depending on what parameters you're measuring. Look for the sockets marked "impedance" or displaying the ohm symbol. Different models and brands of multimeters will vary in their labeling, so check your multimeter's manual if you're not certain about which one to use.

  • 2 Select the range for the multimeter. Since you'll be measuring fairly low resistance levels with a speaker, choose a range that will encompass readings in the 2-16 ohm range. It's extremely rare to find speakers that will have an impedance outside of that range.
  • 3 Touch one probe to each of the speaker terminals and check the reading. This will be the impedance of the speaker. Record the measurement, and when you're done, turn off the multimeter to preserve the batteries for the next time you need the multimeter.

    Ok i just got the sub from a sony sswg450 i want to know is there some way to hook it up to my Pioneer home Receiver


    Did you get a manual with it? According to the Sony site this speaker originates in Sony MHC-GX450.

    "This product bundle includes the following models:
    HCD-GX450 - STEREO MINI SYSTEM
    RM-SC3 - REMOTE CONTROL for Shelf Mini Systems
    SSRG444 - FRONT SPEAKER FOR MHCGX450
    SS-WG450 - SUBWOOFER FOR MHCGX450"


    Find the manual here and learn a bit about your seprated sub...

    http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-documents.pl?mdl=MHCGX450

    See page 7.

    As can be seen, the subwoofer has two connections to the mothership, very unlike the standard speaker level (+/-) speaker wire or RCA-Line-Level subwoofer out that 'normal passive or active subwoofers use, respectively.

    Not knowing which of those your unspecified Pioneer receiver supports, it is impossible to say. Does your Pioneer have that control jack?

    Mini-systems are generally not designed to be pieced out and used with grown-up gear. The absence of standardized connections is the clue.

    No, you don't want to do that. The Ohm output on the amplifier must match the speakers. Run 8 Ohm speakers on 8 Ohm and run all your speakers on the same impedance (Ohms). Your gonna burn your amplifier up if you run different impedances.

    1 - As you already have it, take it out of the box and look at the back. You should be able to determine the connections from there. It is also in the owners manual.

    2 - The receiver only supports 6 and 8 ohm speakers. Do not use 3 ohm speakers with it.

    3 - The Yamaha website has instructions on how to check the firmware version and instruction on how to upgrade the firmware.

    Impedance must be matched to have a better sound performance. Althought, it has no problem b/w 4 Ohm and 6 Ohm impedance-it still work but the system may get hotter due to impedance mismatching. You can try and see how the sound goes.

    Hi,
    I don't think you can do that if your system was not designed for the additional speakers and a subwoofer. Your system is not a Home Theater surround sound system.
    You could add the additional speakers by splicing the speaker wires but I wouldn't recommend it and it would not work like a true surround sound system.
