Denon AVR 1508 distortion on left channels


I have a different model, but sometimes suffer this when power outages or other strange things happen. Its usually the microprocessor getting confused and not doing its job properly, once none of the speakers came on at atll!
In the handbook, it will tell you how to do a factory reset - that always sorts mine (Same brand, Denon). Just a pain setting it all up again.
You should be able to find a PDF version of the handbook online if your's is misplaced in the house move.

My panasonic SA-PM193 died after 3 hours of playing music after i added a 4 inch subwoofer and 2 small speakers


... whatever that tells us.

If you severely modified the load to the amp by running more speakers than it's designed to drive and/or at a lower impedence, well, are you surprised?

It only pushes around 25 watts/channel AT TEN PERCENT DISTORTION through a carefully and unrealistically limited bandwidth specification.

http://audio.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/panasonic/sc-pm193_1.html?idRes=699618

Running 'clean' (under, say, 1% distortion throughout th 20-20000hz range) it probably only pushes 10 watts/channel. Once an amp is taxed beyond it's clean abilities it will start to distort, badly, and distortion will kill speakers and maybe the amp itself.

Wires to main speaker are, Yellow & Blue witch one is the positive ?. Also I am getting distortion from the clean channel even at low volume, the speaker is Peavey 1230 model 8 ohms.


Yellow should be the positive. Try plugging in and reversing. The louder of the two is the one in phase and the correct wiring. If the speaker is pushing out when playing , it is in phase and correct also.
The distortion problem could be a speaker going out. It may not be totally blown, but may be verging.
Holding your hand out as wide as you can push against the speaker lightly. If there is a rubbing or scratching sound, the speaker could be damaged.If it moves freely, and there is no scratching its okay.
Another possibility is the clean channel may have a channel volume set to high. Make sure the clean channel volume is set lower than the master volume otherwise you can get distortion on that channel too.
Good Luck.

Left channels do not work when using surround modes


Ohhhhhh, so it has NEVER worked for YOU and it needed fixing when you got it. That changes everything. And you don't have the manual??

You can find the manual on Retrevo.com. Just register and download it. You're going to need it to make use of this unit anyway.
Make sure everything is connected correctly.

Look it over and play around with it. Speaker setup needs to be done before anything else. Did you get the microphone that comes with it? If not, go to page 23 and start there.

Sony DAV-SC8. I'm suddenly getting distortion


It sounds like the speakers themselves are the problem rather than the amp.
Although, it would be rare to have overdriven/blown the surrounds.
My suggestion would be to isolate which speakers or channels (on Amp) are at fault.
Swap left and right to see if the problem transfers across.

Surround sound distortion


Receivers like this will incorrectly decode rear channel audio and pass it on to the rear channels as distorted audio. Make sure the source being used really has rear channel information encoded into it. It could have other issues but check this first.

Your speakers are worn if you can try someone else speakers. Speakers tend to wear out with excessive use particularly when played once or twice loud its a try that wont hurt at least for peace of mind you may need not throw them out.
