Question about Pioneer VSX-D608 Receiver

1 Answer

Overload Problem I recently purchased a new pair of Polk RM101 front speakers to go with my Polk RC80i rear speakers that I want to hook up to my Pioneer VSX-D608 reciever. I connected the wiring for 1 of the front speakers to the connection on the rear of the receiver and recieved an 'overload' message and the reciever shut down with seconds. This only happened when I increased the volume of the music (FM station). I detached the wire from the speaker and received the same message when I turned up the volume. At that point I thought it could not be the speaker. When I see overload I think I'm going to burn something up (speakers or receiver). Can you help me with my problem

    I get the "overload" message as soon as I turn on my VSX-D608 receiver. It just keeps flashing on the screen, and I don't have anything hooked up to it at all. What could cause this?

If your rec'vr worked with the original front and rear speakers, the new speakers are either defective or ar the wrong impedance.
Also, I find this confusing: "I connected the wiring for 1 of the front speakers to the connection on the rear of the receiver". This may indicate wrong wiring connection. Make sure you have connected the speakers properly

I have polk audio speakers that came with my old hp f50. I just purchased a new hp but can't get my speakers to work


The old speakers are not compatible. Your new computer is looking for an external power source for the speakers, the older polk speakers that came with Hp computers have none.

bi-wiring requires the removal of the copper jumpers between the hi and low speaker terminals. you can use two wire pairs twisted together at amp out connections and the four separate ends at each speaker, but the quality of sound will not be as good as buying quality bi-wire cables. But a pair of quality single set of wires at each speaker would be fine, but put jumpers back on and attach to the top terminals, they are designed that way. bi-wiring does allow the crossover to put out a little better sound. Hooking up four sets of wires to the a and b speaker terminals sounds bad. i have had alot of trouble with my rti10's and learned the hard way that it is best to pay more for wires with quality terminations.

I know the problem is a bad speaker it's warped, I was wanting to find a contact to purchase a new speaker. Not the whole housing but the speaker itself.

Creating a surround sound system


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand should work more than OK. Even if the 520 is only pushing 75watts per channel, you have 2 X for the front KSB-2.1 (left & right) plus another 75 for the Polk Audio center in addition to 250watts built-in amp of the Velodyne CT-150. What would be better is another pair of KSB-2.1 or comparable for the surround (another 2 X 75 and widening the separation).

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

No sound from back speakers


Remember the rear speakers are called surround... Did you select surround on the unit? if it says stereo then you will only get fronts, select surround to get the rest.

Setting up a Yamaha RX-V690 home theater system


you almost have the exact same situation i am in. i have the same receiver, and going to purchase a panasonic 50" (th50px75u). i think what i will be doing is running a hdmi from my hd cable box to my tv, and installing an audio cable (red/white) from my tv to the receiver. i believe there is an audio input below the hdmi insert. i have polk audio, but theyare about 10 years old, they sound great, but just too large....and may be purchasing a harman kardon system. which models do you have from polk? i have the rt16's, cs350ls center, and fx/500 rears. let me know what you have come up with as well...as it has been a while since you posted this.

cheers,
sean
