Try to increase the speaker levels through setup. I had the same problem and I increased the speaker level from 0dB to +10dB, and seems like it is better now. Let me know how you make out.

Hello, I have an RT 2870 RCA surround sound system. When I turn it on all I hear is static and its not until I crank the volume up to around 25-30 before I can hear the audio. How would I fix this problem?


Turn the volume control to something medium.

The errant switch, control or condition may change and you will suddenly release the amp's full power and possibly destroying your speakers. If a signal isn't audible at 1/2 volume it's probably not there.

Carefully examine the front panel for clues like a misplaced Mute or Tape Monitor control or Multichannel Analog Input selected.

There is a good chance that a common control (volume pot??) may have developed a high-resistance or 'dead' spot through defect or idleness and is causing your symptom. Turn the POWER OFF and operate every control throughout its range a number of times, especially rarely-used ones like Tape Monitors and the Mute control.

Turn the volume to something reasonable and see if that helped.

My SC BT100 is perfect until I use the IPOD dock, it works ok for 10mins but then 'blows'. the unit becomes very hot and wont turn back on until it has cooled down.

You are overpowering the Amplifier and it is protecting itself until it cools down.

The reason for this is that the output from the IPOD is already pre-amplified. If it didn't shut down you would either blow the Amplifier or Speakers.

If you keep the volume turned down to a minimum on your IPOD and use the volume control on your theater system you should be OK but still don't turn the theater system to full output.

Please leave feedback.

I have a sony home theater system. my cable box volume is all the way up but still with watching TV the volume is so low, eventhough the volume on the sony system is set to "MAX". also i get a...

First, TURN THE VOLUME DOWN. We don't test with max volume any more than we start our cars with the accelerator floored.

How is the audio from your TV getting to the HTS? Name names and be specific.

Your TV audio output may be dependent on its volume control. Many TV's have a FIXED setting in their setup so you can lower or turn their speakers off while letting REAL electronics and speakers handle the sound duty.

OR, you could (and should) bypass the TV entirely as an audio source and go to the cable box's audio output.

Volume control issues

MMmmm, I'm doubting this has anything to do with wire. Can you test that theory by wiring one speaker with each type / length of wire and getting the same reslults?

Define the speakers and the amp for us.

Volume issue

The red/ white RCA is the most correct way for you.

Just to confirm it's analogue tv not digital you are watching?

Your friend is correct for when you watch from a settop box or pay tv provider you can run an optical cable to the bose -but- most tv's don't have an optical out.
SO- can I confirm that you can get sound out of just your tv on it's own?

I'd say that the audio outs on the back of your tv are "linked" to the tv's volume control, so you have to turn up the volume to get a louder output. Some tv's are advanced that you can disable the tv speakers, and permanentlyh set the tv output to a fixed level so you can use your surround sound (and Its volume control)
Try this one if you can.

YAMAHA AV receiver RX-V861 I have the message 'Vol-fix' appearing on Zone 2 and no sound. This was working fine until then

Setting the RX-V861 remote control to operate Zone 2:
  1. Using a ballpoint pen or similar object and press the [CODE SET] button RX-V861 remote control. The[TRANSMIT INDICATOR]on the remote should flash twice.
  2. Using the [NUMERICAL KEY PAD] on the remote and key in 9992, the [TRANSMIT INDICATOR] should flash.
Assigning the receivers internal amp for Zone 2:
  1. Set the remote control selector to [AMP]. (Located to the right of the volume buttons on the Remote.).
  2. Press the [SET MENU]button on the remote control.
  3. Arrow down to Manual Setup and press the Enter button on the remote control.
  4. Arrow to the [SOUND MENU] option and press the [ENTER] button on the remote control.
  5. Arrow to Speaker Set and press the [ENTER] button on the remote control.
  6. Arrow to the EXTRA SP ASSIGN and select ZONE2
  7. Press the [RETURN] button on the remote control to exit out and return to the Manual Setup.
NOTES: There is an option for setting the Maximum Volume and Initial Volume in the Zone Set menu.
  • Max Volume: This is an optional feature but isrecommended to prevent the accidental change in volume levels thatcould damage the speakers and receiver.
  • Initial Volume: This is also a great feature that would seamlessly start the volume level for the second or third zone at the desired level.
We do not recommend using any Speaker Selector boxes to enable more than the recommended number of speakers per terminal.
Controlling Zone 2 using the RX-V861 remote control:
  1. If the Main Zone on the receiver is on, press the [POWER BUTTON]down and while holding that button down press the [PHONO]/[**] button on the remote. The [TRANSMIT INDICATOR] will light up.
  2. You will not be able to use the following buttons on the remote: (Pressing any other button will cause the remote to exit Zone 2 mode. [POWER], [STANDBY], [VOLUME], [MUTE] and the [INPUT SELECTOR] buttons [DVD], [CD], etc.)

There are the instructions as written straight from yamaha. If you need any further assistance please let me know.
Thank you,

Subwoofer volume and sound

i had the same problem when i tried to adjust speaker output levels, distance and equalizer manually without using audessy i reset everything to factory setting (0s)..and then ran 
audessy setup..reduce volume on your subwoofer to slightly above minimum(behind the subwoofer) before running the setup..once audessy setup is completed successfully..i started changing setup
manually..changed speaker config for front speaker to small (it is set as large by audessy setup), this should automatically adjust center and other speaker configuration (if not make sure to set them to small as well), then set the cross over frequency to 120..increase the volume on your subwoofer and now you should hear it fire..if this does not help..try playing some rock music with all channel streo mode..if your subwoofer does not fire even for this..then take the system back for exchange..
