Re: Center dome of speakers crushed in

This happened to me. I tried using sticky tape and it just made it worse. Then I had a brilliant idea! I got the vacuum cleaner hose and sucked the dome out and back into shape. Now it is perfect and the sound is not affected. (if you can reduce the vacuums suction power by opening the vent it might be a good idea)

I have bought a Sony Home theatre with total 6 speakers (including woofer, rear speakers (2), Front speakers with stand(2) and onr central speaker. But the centre speaker is not responding during TV,...

That would all be a function of your HTS, not necessarily the speakers.

Get a handle on how IT works, maybe find the manual and perform setup to verify the speakers work at proper levels.

I imagine it has several Digital Sound Processing modes that can create multi-speaker sound from any source.

The best sound would be with all speakers matched, same brand, same vintage. Any good quality amp with 5.1 and higher should work well. Stay away from low end brands.

How do I adjust each speakers volume?

You could start with the manual which is available at for free.

Speaker settings are primary to the quality and effects you hear. Surround modes depend on them.

The factory defaults assume you're in the center of a perfect circle of speakers (page 21). You need to adjust the delays of the Center and Surrounds to delay them so their sound arrives at the same time as the main speakers.

Page 27 deals specifically with relative speaker levels. You want to have the subjective sound level at your primary listening position be the same from all speakers with the test tone. I would recommend that you figure out which one(s) are the loudest at 0dB and adjust the rest to it(them).

Core in center of speaker is dented

It's just a dust cover. If it is not affecting the sound quality, just leave it alone. You may make it worse by trying to fix it.

When connecting my polk 6801 to my reciever, sound is fuzzy and weak. when i turn effect off on my reciever the sound out of front rt and left speakers is awesome but no sound out of back and center. soon...

Your speakers are having some compatibility issues. I suggest you get in touch with the tech support for your receiver and with the tech support for the speakers to properly resolve this issue. Make sure you have the model numbers handy when you talk to them.

Technics speaker torn

most of the older Japanese speakers must be repaired ratther than replaced if the frame is squared or odd sized. many had a flange making a 15" speaker a 16" size or were square framed so that a round replacement will not work. if it is a standard size round frame speaker, then this is easily replaced. if the tear is only on the center dome or dustcap, then this can be easily replaced. if the actual cone is torn or there is other damage to the moving parts, then the speaker can be reconed. often modifications must be made due to the current availability of standard sized parts vs the original metric, etc, but in the end, the reconed speaker will perform as closely as possible to the original and sometimes better.

No human sounds when playing dvds.

sound like the center channel is out
either bad connection at speaker or receiver is not putting out sound on center. A quick swap of speakers at receiver end will tell you if it is the latter
