Seems like one of the wires is loose either inside the speaker or in the cable leading to it.
best chance is to open up the right speaker ( involvs damage to the plastic , since atp3 speakers are glued and practically unopenable with out breaking)
and then trying to play with the wires `till you find the sourse of the problem.
as soon as you know where the probles is , i`m sure its gonna be easy to fix, again , the hard part is to take this speaker apart.
good luck

I installed a Pioneer DEH-P800PRS head unit and 4 Kenwood KFC-1662S speakers in my 2003 Dodge Dakota extended cab truck. I used a Kenwood KAC-5204 2 channel amp connected in parallel. Sounds good at lower...


Hello.... sorry to hear about your problem. Bass is the ultimate evil of coaxial speakers. You have a couple of options here, and this is just my professional opinion because I do not know what your lifestyle details, such as truck space needs, type of music you listen to, budget, etc. If you are looking for alot of bass, the best bet would be to use 2 external amplifiers, 1 for the interior speakers, and 1 for a subwoofer. You would then need to purchase an electronic crossover. With this setup, you can remove all of the low frequencies from the coaxial speakers and put them where they belong, with the sub. You will gain EXCEPTIONAL clarity and a very high volume before distortion level. Again it will depend on what your budget is and if you are willing to compromise on some cab space. The only other option you have at this point is if you are wanting to play your music at high volume levels, you will just need to reduce the bass level as you increase volume. I hope this has helped. Good luck with your venture!!

I have a sony MP# player, same range as listed but the 8GB model. I can only turn volume up to 16 before it starts distorting and giving a really bad and weak signal though the headset, when the stereo...


Headphones are not designed to have the volume levels run at maximum. At this level the sounds from the headphones will distort.
Speakers have a much larger voice coil and therefore will not distort at higher volume levels.
Also when the speakers are connected to the MP3 player the sound level may appear lower because speakers require more energy to drive (produce sounds). In this case you need to connect powered (amplified) speakers to the MP3 player.

All static from the sound bar. adjustments don't help. tried different cables - that didn't help. System is not usable at this time.


The manual...

Distorted sound from the Soundbar.

Change the Trim Level switch setting to a higher number.
Check the signal source to be sure the distortion is not originating there. <<<<<<<<<

The woofer seems to have interference with its wireless signal.

Try changing settings of the Wireless ID switches on both the soundbar and bass unit. <<<<<<<<
The bass unit could be too far from the soundbar to get a good signal. Try moving it closer.

What is the source device that results in static? How is it connected?

Amplifiers GT Series GT5-A604 ........explain settings


the amp probably has a x-over knob, a bass boost knob, and an eq knob. the eq is probably an internal crossover switch that will take the output from either high range (tweeters) or full range (6x9s) or low pass (subs) leave it on low pass. the bass boost however, will add distortion if turned up too high. its not noticable in the car, actually it sounds louder in the car but if you open the trunk and listen, you can tell its distorted bass and actually frying your speakers. the x-over knob is used to tune the frequency at which the amp stops pushing out bass tones. if you like rock music loud, turn it up higher, if you like low deep rap bass, turn it lower. keeping it too high might give you bad sound from either type though. ALSO THE GAIN OR LEVEL.IT IS NOT TO MAKE YOUR SUBS LOUDER IT WILL BLOW THEM .the gain is used to set your amp to your head unit which there is a procedure to do it.

Won't work after re-installing Boston speakers


would try it with the correctly rated fuse as there may not be enough wattage / current to power the bass unit with a thin wire.

Also how long ago was it flooded as it may take quite a while in a warm area to dry off completely ?

What duz level adjustment do


Hello,

The level control controls the input level coming from your head unit (receiver) to the amp.

Your Sony users manual is a little vague on how to best adjust the level and other controls.

Here is one method that some installers use and works well with most amps.

Most 10" subs sound best between about 80-100hz and below, so start out by setting the LPF at about 80hz. The HPF will not be used. Next turn the bass boost and gain all the way down. Turn on the radio and set all tone controls, bass, midrange, treble to flat, usually "0" on most head units. Turn the volume up to approximately 3/4 volume level or just until you begin to hear distortion. Now, back the volume down until the distortion is gone. Next turn up the gain control on the amp until you hear the subs start to distort then back the gain down until the distortion disappears. Next turn the bass boost up again until the subs begin to distort, then either back the bass boost down or back the gain down until the distortion is gone. You may need to play around with the bass boost and gain controls to get exactly the sound you prefer.

Hope this helps.

Denon receiver shutdown


Try turning down your tone controls. Like your bass, treble, or your equalizer. If you hear too much tinny or hissing sounds, the treble has to be turned down, or turn down the upper bands controls on your equalizer to the optimun level. If you hear too much bassy sounds, your bass control has to be turned down, or the lower band controls has to be turned down to the optimun level. If you are planning on turning the volume up, you may have to turn down some of the tone controls to the optimun levels, otherwise, your receiver may shutdown, or you may blow fuses in your speakers. Also make sure you speaker wire polarity is hooked up right. Red wire on the + red terminals, and the black wire on the - black terminals. Also don't have the volume turned up too high to the point where your receiver would have clipping or distortion, or else your receiver may shutdown, or you may blow fuses in your speakers.

If this don't help, then there may be something wrong with your receiver or your speaker.
