Question about KLH Audio Players & Recorders
Posted by Anonymous on
The speakers connections have to come from an amplifier with sound coming from it in the first place. Once connected to the unit the bass signal is then extracted from the signal and the rest of the signal sent to the main speakers. The KLH will not power the main speakers on it's own. The unit will only take the two main stereo channels, from an amplifier, the left and right then go to one set of inputs and they then come out of the other two outputs.

If the speaker itself is working then the problem will most likely be the connection point where the speaker plugs into. If you dont know how to check for this problem, i dont really want to tell you just in case you hurt yourself. Take it to a shop and have it looked at by someone thats knows what there looking for.

The 'Subwoofer' output on your receiver is used to connect to a powered subwoofer with a built in amplifier. Your KLH speakers use what is called a 'passive' subwoofer, it gets its power from the receiver and then passes the higher frequencies to the left and right front speakers after taking out the low frequencies for the subwoofer. A speaker system with a passive subwoofer is good for casual listening, but a powered subwoofer is required for really hearing low frequencies and rumble in movies. The KLH speakers you have were highly rated in their time for their price. The four satellite speakers and center channel speaker have very good sound compared to the little 'midget' surround sound speakers most people buy today.
Here's how you hook them up:
- The left and right front channels from your receiver terminals should go to the terminals on the subwoofer marked 'From Amplifier'
- Your left and right front speakers are then connected to the subwoofer terminals marked 'To Speakers', they do not connect directly to your receiver.
- Your center speaker is connected to your receiver terminals marked 'Center'
- Your rear speakers are connected to your receiver terminals marked 'Surround'
That should get you up and running. If the bass isn't good enough with the passive subwoofer, you can get a decent powered subwoofer like the Velodyne VX-10 for about $150 and 'kick it up a notch'. Good luck and enjoy....

Sounds like you need to take them back for exchange. A new electronic product is most likely to fail in the first few months, when any weak or defective parts that made it through final test at the factory decide to **** out after a few hours of use. This is a very common situation, especially nowadays with manufacturers buying the cheapest parts they can find, and the general public crying out for lower prices instead of paying more money for better quality. Bose has traditionally been "top of the line" stuff, but even they have to cut corners to keep prices low and sell stuff in this economy.

OK if you came out of the receiver sub pre-out RCA jack into the subwoofer RCA jack ( most subs call this low level line in) and no sub sound you may need to program the receiver to tell it that a subwoofer is being used, many receivers have this function, and some default it to NO SUB and them your low end soung goes to the front right and left speaker, so check the receiver manual and look under adding a subwoofer instructions if available.
