Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I have a yamaha htr-5240 receiver. Also have a 6 speaker polk-audio surround set.Center,2 rear,2 front,& the subwoofer. The sub is a psw-250 with no sub out or LFE.I can't figure out what i've done wrong,cause the way i have wired it,it don't work. Here's the way I did it.I used a single RCA cable and connected it to one of the line level inputs of the subwoofer.(theres no LFE so I used the RIGHT line level input.)The other end went to my recevers sub-out. NOTE; this receiver has two spots for sub-out. One on the audio signal section and one on the external decoder section. I put mine in the audio signal section. Next, I used a pair of RCA cables and went from my TV's audio out to my receivers audio signal section and used the SAT/D-TV input. Next I did the speakers. MY receiver has; Main A&B -- Center-- Rear. Center went to center. Rear went the rear, and the fronts went to Main A. Next I went to my tv's audio menu and switched it from internal to external. Then I turned my receivers Input selector to SAT/D-TV. I get no sound /nothing. My receivers remote has a button to do a speaker test,and all the speakers are working. although this test doesn't test the sub. I'm lost and have been trying to get this to work for two days. Thanks for any help you can give.

First, look at the sub, their should be a switch for "auto" "off" "on" switch it to "on" Then use the Left input on the sub not the right. Left is for mono. Now, if you still dont have any sub, disconnect the RCA at the receiver and touch the end of the RCA, if the sub is on, you will hear a loud humm. Now, go back into the receivers Menu and go into manual setup, find "Audio" and select "Auto". That should do it. If not, put the receiver on "Tuner" and set the sound to 7 channel stereo (I'm not sure if the HTR series has this) or "Adventure" I'm a Yamaha RXV series Dealer so the names may differ. (check in manual for audio surround settings) Anyway, this should let you know if you've got all your spkrs working. Then make sure your TV's external audio is set to "Fixed" (it may be called audio out) depends on TV type. Scroll thru TV's audio menu. If you still have problems post a comment and I will help some more. Hope this helps

Surround problem with Yamaha HTR-5930 5.1 Channels Receiver


The signal that comes from most tv's via the optical output is a stereo signal only. That is what your receiver is reading. You would have to manually set your receiver to decode the signal into surround,.

Optimum set up for Polk Audio PSW 10?


Run 2 RCA cables from the two Purple connections on your Receiver (Labled "PRE OUT SUBWOOFER") to the Red and White connectors on the back of your Sub (it does not matter which Purple connecter you plug into either the Red and White)

Set the volume control on the Sub to about 75%, and keep the power switch in the "ON AUTO" position. To set the Low Pass value, look at the back of one of the front speakers in your setup, and note its frequency range (will look something like 100Hz - 17kHz). Set the Low Pass at a value slightly higher than the low value on the back of your surround speakers.

To set the phase switch, stand in the middle of the room with some music on (something with some bass, but not over the top bass) and have someone switch between 0 Deg and 180 Deg. Listen for which setting sounds "Louder and Fuller". This is the one you want. You will need to do this each time you move the Sub, as its position may change its phase in relation to the rest of your system.

Good Luck!

Lux Audio 5.1 home theater speaker & Yamaha HTR 5540 AMP


configure ur PC (both OS audio and third party sound driver) for surround sounds. control panel- sounds and audio devices - speaker settings - advanced - speker settings. so this done. make sure u select the 6 input channel - the button is on the right edge near the volume knob. near the vol button there are two buttons for selecting input type with up down arrow. from that u can select the input type this will be indicated on the top front indicator. but with the 6 input channel selected all selections are preceeded. if u select stereo mode u will have left/ right audio only.
make sure u connect the input right. connect from computer to 6 channel input. main, surround, center and sub-woofer.  connect the spekers to main (L/R), rear(surround) (L/R), center and sub woofer to terminal marked sub woofer ouput. this done select like i said before the 6 channel button. that should do it.

4 ohm speakers on Yamaha HTR 5540


Model number of the Lux? The only unknown to me regarding the answer is if the Lux speakers are designed for non-Lux attachment. If there are molded connectors on their leads I would be cautious as that is usually the manufacturer's subltlke clue that you really don't want toi mix them with other makers. If they're bare wire I think you're ok.

The impedance selector on the receiver supports minimum 4-ohm front and 6-ohm center and rear, so you'd be marginal on those last two, but barring excessive high volumes I'd think it would work. The powered sub is supported and its impedance spec is irrelevant.

Just curious, is this an upgrade in electronics? From what?

Left from speaker not working- Yamaha HTR-5940-6.1 channel


Redbird,

What do you have in the "multi channel input" jacks on the rear of the receiver? Those inputs Right, Left, Center, Surround R+L, and Sub are used when selecting 6 channel mode. They bypass the receivers surround processor board.
