I lot could depend on how the music source has been connected to the receiver. If you are using a stereo CD player then you may need to check if it is configured to send audio in stereo mode and not mono. The input source selection for the audio is given in page 26 of the manual.
You can go to the setting menu in Receiver and configure the speakers settings according to which ones you have installed.
Also refer page 25 in the manual to over ride speaker configuration if it is not showing correct.
Some info from the manual: The Dolby Digital and DTS listening modes can only be selected if your Blu-ray Disc/DVD player is connected to
the AV receiver with a digital audio connection (coaxial,
optical, or HDMI).
• The listening modes you can select depends on the format of the input signal. To check the format, see "Displaying Source Information"
• While a pair of headphones is connected, you can select the following listening modes: Mono, Direct, and Stereo.
• While Speakers A and B are on, you can select only the
Direct, Stereo, Mono, or T-D (Theater-Dimensional) listening mode.
Plus this Bit of info on the speakers A and B buttons. While Speakers B is on, channels are reduced to 2.1 in the
If you can access the speaker configuration it should provide test tones to each speaker. If you can't the speaker A and B are not set right.
If you have pressed the stereo or mono button no sound will be heard except from the front two or the sub.
One of the speaker inputs is not connected.
Connect the speaker wiring securely.
The BALANCE setting is all the way in one direction.
Adjust the BALANCE control.
Unit is in MONO mode.
Turn off MONO mode.
Yes, in bridge mode you will wire ONE Speakon that will have the two speaker wires connected to pins "1+" and "2+". You do NOT need the manual to do this, the info is right on the back of the PMP6000 itself. You will plug that Speakon into channel "B".
PLEASE note that you CANNOT go below 8 ohm speaker impedance. If your speakers are 4 ohm you MUST connect two in SERIES which requires special cables and the speakers MUST be identical. You can connect TWO 16 ohm speakers in parallel by daisy chaining, however 16 ohm speakers are NOT very common. With 8 ohm speakers you can connect EXACTLY one in bridged mode UNLESS you connect four of them in series-parallel which requires special cables and great care. Believe me you do NOT want to have an accident with this amp as repairing is extensive.
Lastly, put the speaker configuration switch down to the bridged mode.
This is how bridged mode works: Sliding the switch down basically configures the two power amps in monaural and one amp is inverted so there outputs are out of phase by 180 degrees effectively doubling the voltage.
Remember that BOTH wires in bridged mode are HOT and grounding one while amp is on will likely blow out one side or more.
It is NOT clear what configuration you have set up and what you consider the MONO output is, whether it is the power amp MONO side output or the line level MONO 1/4 inch jack on the top of the unit (this jack is NOT speaker output). If you can run normal stereo speakers using both sides of the power amp in the AB mode, the problems you are having is pilot error.
REMEMBER the main out 1/4 inch jacks are BALANCED TRS jacks... DO NOT put mono plugs into these.
A WARNING: If you use Speakon to 1/4 inch speaker cables, remember that the BARREL of side A is HOT, not the tip!!! You can fry the amp if you inadvertently ground that barrel someplace. (Side B has the barrel grounded) This information is NOT readily available in the manual and results in many a blown amp. They do this to implement the "Bridged" mode easily.
I have schematics and can unravel most any problem you are having.
It sounds like there must be a bad connection on that input. Try switching the left and right input cables for the TV and see if you get the left cahannel working. If so, investigate a possible bad cable or output issue from the TV.
yes, it is a bridgable amplifier, if that is what you are talking about. Look at the speaker output terminal and it should have markings on it for stereo output and it will have a line between the 2 terminals to use for bridging it. When you bridge an amplifier it is mono. There may also be a switch on the amp for stereo or bridged. Put that switch in the bridged mode. Connect one speaker to the speaker output and you have your bridged mono amplifier. If you plan on using 2 woofers, it is better and safer to use it in stereo mode with one speaker on each channel.
setup of bridge mono mode:-1-turn your amplifier off.2-connect input wiring to channel(1) input--3-connect speaker across positive outputs terminals-do not use negative terminal when amplifier is operating in bridge mono mode.4-turn down (fully counter clockwise)of channel (2).
