SOURCE: Denon AVR-810 going into PROTECTION mode

It sounds like there is a problem with the differential circuit. The bias I am not sure about, as every unit is different. You should get the service manual to be sure or call Denon and see if they can give you an idea. Good Luck

SOURCE: Denon AVR-2105

If the Cd is wired digitally, it will only play through the main zone, because the Denon cannot convert down to RCA to cater for the zone 2. If you plug RCAs from Cd to Denon, Main zone will STILL play from digital, and RCA connection will allow zone 2 to play Cd from RCA input....same with dvd, Satellite Blah blah... no stress, any nasty RCA will do if you want to try before you splash out on really costly cables...perhaps you can help me...want to run AVR 2105 with 2 speakers in zone 2, manual says cant do it - only ably to surround back or biamp...dont want either, dont have stereo yet to try it out...did you have any trouble with that?

SOURCE: Noise coming out of speakers connected to Denon AVR 1908

Check for nearby wireless devices and move them away. -If the audio output from the source device (i.e. DVD, CD player) is digital (i.e. PCM, DTS or Dolby Digital) you're on your own. I'd be willing to bet the output is analog (red and white RCA), because the "beeps" and "exploding sounds" you describe seem like it could be caused by interference. Try replacing the cables. Otherwise the issue is probably with your receiver.

How do i hook up my Aiwa 90 watt self powered subwoofer to this Onkya A-8037 stereo amp there are only two auxiliary ports in the back and both are used by the stereo.


Your powered subwoofer should have two different pairs of inputs - one is a line input that is connected to a subwoofer output on your amp. The other inputs are those that are directly connected to the existing speaker outputs on your amp.

When you have all working make sure that the sub output is in phase with your other speakers lest you have bass cancellation.

If you haven't done already, then verify that zone 2 works without the selector. If the speakers definitely work and the zone output definitely works then the speaker selector must be the culprit! It's pretty difficult to mess up the wiring with speakers, as even if polarity is reversed, you will still hear something.

Hi above are links for manuals, these may help..
When one wires up anything it is all usually color to color output to input... usually RED & WHITE stereo audio.
Now we would start with our Tuner this the CD player, & Cassette deck, will wire into the Amp's INPUTs , red - red & white - white, these go into the Stereo INPUTs on the AMP... 1, 2 & 3 and be selected via the input selector on the AMP.
Now after all these in's and out's are wired we need to wire our speakers, this too is simple, locate the outputs on the Amp, and wire accordingly, Plus to Plus and Negative to Negative... each speaker has two wires a Plus, + & a Negative -
All will/should be clearly marked and it will be easy to do. You will need patch leads, one set each for each unit, these will be a pair of cables, usually Red & White with RCA jacks on each end, as related these go color to color from the RCA OUTPUTs Sockets, of the signal suppliers, ie: Tuner, FM stereo & Cassette deck... these ALL will wire into the Main Amplifiers INPUTS, usually at rear of unit, and clearly marked, after this is all done, then as related again now connect the Speakers, again the OUTPUT on the Amp will be clearly marked, as output and + & -, + & - (two sets), one for each channel.
Now each INPUT is selected ON the AMP, and it's output will then be directed to the speakers attached to the Amp..... Just wire and test one at a time, and i am sure you will prevail.
Hope this helps.

How to connect speakers to RCA model #RP-8070D


This unit is just a 5 disc CD player and cannot drive large speakers all by itself. Normally it is hooked up to a stereo receiver / amplifier which is what provides the power to drive the speakers which are wired to the back of the stereo amplifier.

If you have a home stereo, then just run the cables from the 2 AUDIO OUT connectors on the back of your CD player to the CD IN connectors on the back of your stereo.

Then turn your stereo on and select CD on your stereo input mode selector and you should be able to play the cds on your RCA and hear them through the stereo speakers.

If you do not have a stereo amplifier with speakers to connect it to, then you can always listen to it through headphones connected to the headphone jack.

Or if you have a set of self powered amplified speakers, like the kind you hook up to a computer, then you can run the AUDIO OUT cable from your cd player into those as well.

Good luck.

Do not know how to connect my kappa 60.5cs to my pioneer cd player do they have to go through an external amp?what do i do with the power plugs on the oppisite side why are there 2 per speaker


You need to run RCA cables from the CD player to the CD or AUX input on your amp / receiver unit. If you have a standalone amp, you need some way to control the volume. Basically, if you have a volume control on the front of your amp, you're OK. If not, you should also have a preamplifier that the CD player feeds first.

From the amplifier, then, a single pair of speaker outputs feeds a single pair of inputs on your speakers. The reason for two jack sets on the speakers is for "bi-wiring" or "bi-amping", not necessary for basic stereo reproduction.

So -

CD red/white RCA out -> preamp/receiver red/white CD/AUX input. Amp speaker output (red + / black -) to one red/black input pair on the speakers. An input on the speaker is side by side...

Keep the red to red, black to black when connecting the speakers, or you will wind up with poor sound and weak bass.

I have my Vizio hooked up to my computer. I have a sub-woofer and speakers. How do I get the speakers to work w/tv mode. They work when I am using computer mode. I have comcast cable and box.


Good day sir, Hi, you see, the TV produces its own sound, you need to feed this sound to your PC. here are options were you need to choose.
  1. You need a separate sub/speaker system for your TV. feed the sub/speaker with the sound line out from the TV. you also need an RCA to stereo baby plug adaptor for your sub/speaker.
  2. If you want to use your PC speakers, feed the line out of the TV sound to the line in of the PC, usually the line in is the blue port, you need an RCA to stereo baby plug. then activate the line in function from the mixer volume properties. This requires that you turn on your PC when in TV mode.
  3. Simply disconnect the sub/speaker baby plud input from the PC and connect it to the line out of your TV using an RCA to baby jack adaptor. (re connect again if you want it on your PC. this is very complicated)
  4. Does your sub has extra input? like aux, or cd, or tuner? feed the TV line out to one of these extra port. use the input selector switch from TV and PC. you need an RCA to stereo baby plug connector.
I forgot to ask, Does your TV has line out? if no, you are stuck with the built-in speakers.

Purchased 2 used sonance sonamp 260 for homewide speaker system (12 pair).line out from receiver into first amp powering first 8 pair.line out from first amp into second amp powers remaining 4pair.only...


I am assuming you are using the standard sonamp 260 not a 260x3
and that when you say you are getting sound on only 1 pair that means only on 1 side (left or right channel only?)

Are using a speaker selector box? you must to regulate the resistance (ohms)

if so first unhook all but on pair of speakers and see if both channels are working.

if they do your problem is in the speaker selector not the amp if no then check to see what the amp level is set to. These are the two small holes on the front right of amp make sure they are set about equal at around half way up.

If that doesn't work flip the RCA cables coming to the amp perhaps you have a bad cable if that doesn't work make sure your receiver (source) is outputing a stereo signal to begin with.

lastly 8 sets of speakers off 1 amp? that's pushing it.even with a high quality Niles or speakercraft selector that controls the resistance going to an amp I wouldn't go past 5 sets.

The right way to do it would be to use 260x3 or a sonance or speakercraft 12 channel amp.

BA735 no sound but sound card works in analog mode.


this should be pretty easy to diagnose. both speakers have mini jacks right? if so, and you plug one pair of speakers in on say, port "A" and you get sound then if you plug your other speakers in on port "A" and you don't get any sound, the problem is with your speakers.

Try plugging in a pair of headphones. I tried it without the speakers connected and since it found the headphones and they were OK the system came out of protect mode.
