How do you hook sp5g to a pioneer receiver

That's a 500 watt continous power speaker please ensure you amp able to push these speakers. If it is speaker wire just needs to go from the front speaker output to the speakers input.
these are alos biampable which would be a better setup

How do i get my speaker to work at high volume with out them cracking,popping destort

If you are using the factory installed speakers they aren't made for the wattage output of your receiver. Factory stereos only put out about 5 to 10 watts. If you want to play it really loud you need to replace them with speakers that have a higher wattage that what your receiver puts out, which is a maximum of 50 watts

Can I use this receiver with my 50 watt max speakers?

However; there are quite a few factors that are going to effect the performance you'll get with this equipment combination while ensuring you won't damage them. Speaker design type and what you'll be listening to with them are just the basic of basics.

Do not attempt to drive additional bass. It is probably best that you adjust the bass with the tone control to roll it back below input level.

If you hear distortion of any kind, it's too loud.

I have the following setup: AV Receiver: Pioneer

Very common problem with today's receivers. Receivers made today don't have a true preamp section in the amplifier and do not amplify the sound to the extent of an older receiver. I have large 15" front speakers on my system, and have stuck with my 15 year old receiver just because I know that a new receiver will not have the power to drive them well. Many of the newer receivers need to be turned up to 50-60% before you can even hear anything from the speakers.

I have had this exact Receiver and this is taken right from the specs. in the manual, "120 watts per channel RMS" at 8 ohms - this is in Stereo mode (2 speakers) only". When surround sound is used, "75 watts RMS for Front and Center speakers and 15 watts RMS for rear (surround) speakers. From experience, the Stereo only mode is definitely stronger/louder than when switching to Surround. Most newer receivers are the same wattage regardless of mode.

Do we need an amplifier to connect home theater yamaha nsc150/e105 with TV, DVD, PC.plz explain

Yes, you need an amplifier, since the "levels" of the sound-output from each device (TV, CD-player, cassette-player, Sony mini-disk player, turntable) are not sufficient to physically move the "cones" inside your speakers, to push air around, to produce sounds.
You need "watts" of power to push air, while the devices produce milli-watts (watts/1000) of power.

Also, the amplifier is also a "decoder", electronically processing the input to produce "5-channel" (left, front, right, back-left, back-right) surround-sound output.

Speaker compatibility ( Just got this new reciever with 120 volts power requirement of the receiver, but in the philippines voltage standard supply is 220. can i use 110 voltage supply instead? and I dnt...

The most likely answer is no. Unless the power transformer is of the multi tap type and has a voltage selector window on the back panel... Most speakers today have an impedance of 8 ohms. The impedance is all you need to worry about when matching speakers. You can fit 8 ohm speakers to a 4 ohm system, but you cannot fit 4 ohm speakers to an 8 ohm system. It would overload your oputput stages and cause them to fail. It's best to match 4 ohm with 4 ohm, 8 ohm with 8 ohms.etc.

No sound with the front speakers

Sound to headphones comes from the pre-amp stage of most units otherwise they wouldnt be able to handle the power output . 150 watts into your ears ouch lol .
So it sounds like your slave amp has gone down on one channel . a slave amp is the final output stage and the power stage to the speakers . to make sure it is the amp change your speakers over if the sound then works from the speakers that had been dead then its the amp and requires an engineer to check it out with the prospect of a new output IC or final stage / capacitor replacement

unskilled persons should not attempt to repair electronic equipment as it is unsafe to do so , and may cost you far more in the long run ?. Regards Vortash

Protector appears on the screen

I have the same problem, i also have a STR-DE715. I have two thunder acoustic speakers and two 12in. punch subs. Now when i only play the subs i can go max volume, no problem, great bass the whole deal. Then when i play the thunder speakers i cant even go half way without the receiver shutting off and saying "protector" on the screen(both the speakers are 120 watt). From personal experience i think it could be the speakers youre using, either the receiver is giving too much juice and its preventing the speakers from blowing or the speakers need more power and the receiver cant give it. So a new set of speaker might be what you need. The receiver is 280 watts so something in that zone should work out. Also try turning off the sound field if you're using more than two speakers for the front output (i read this in the manual, you can pull up the users manual on and see if you can find something i might've missed) it supposed tp help it in one way or another. E-mail me at and tell me if your problem was fixed or not. Im pretty curious myself to find a solution to this problem. hope this helps!
