Question about Yamaha HTR-6030 Receiver

2 Answers

Center and surround speakers work, but front right and front left speakers do not put out any sound

I just hooked up all the speakers and the subwoofer to the reciever and ran the basic test, but the front left and front right speaker do not put out any sound while the two surround speakers (both left and right) and center speaker work wonderfully. I checked the connections to see if I had crossed the positive and negative connections, but they are properly connected. I refered to the mannual and the speakers still do not put out sound. Any suggestions would be wonderful. Thank you.

    Hooked up speakers per diagram, getting sound out of L, R, Center and Subwoofer but none from surround sound speakers. Any suggestions? Yamaha HTR-6030 5.1 Channels Receiver

    I purchased a complete home cinema system with the HTR-6030 recevier. I get sound in all five speakers if I use the tuner, so I think that part is ok. I can't get any sound out of the system when I use the DVD. I have tried the sp a/b/off button, but it does not work in either mode. The manual says that if you get a humming sound out of the system the wiring is not ok, but how could it then work with the tuner.



    The front panel have indicators for which of the five speakers that are "online" and only L and R seems to be online, however no sound come out of any speaker.



    Any ideas ?

Ive also checked to see if their wires have been crosses aswell as if the speakers were in any way disfunctional.. I tried setting the speaker settings to B like the writer above me said, but that didnt work for me.. someone please help.

I had the same problem. Set the reciever on 6 channel stereo. On this setting, you should be getting the same sound out of each speaker. Isolate which speakers aren't getting sound. Now, on your speaker switch (the A/B button), select A. If that doesn't fix it, select B. If that doesn't fix it, try A and B (if you can on your reciever).

Now, when you switch back to pro-logic, make sure your a/b channel switch is in the position that worked in 6 channel stereo. Yamaha recievers have a memory, and when you switch various modes, it makes auto adjustments based on what you had set in the past.

Hope this helps

On the front panel there is a sp a/b/off. I had to select b for my front two speakers to work.

Awia speaker ok for home thaeter


Just about any speaker will work for home theater. As long as it makes sound.

Of course, you will need some type of surround sound processor (like a surround receiver) and other speakers to connect to the front left, center, front right and surround connections.

Some speakers will work better than others.

I will not get into any specifics because there is WAAAAY to much information to get into. Do a little research on home theater systems and how to design, hook up etc.

Turn up the volume on the left or right speakers or turn down the center channel volume to meet your preferences. There should be a setting for that in most receivers.

I don't know how to hook up the speakers


hooking up speakers is easy you if your terminals are red and black you just match them up black on speaker means hook to black on the receiver doing a wrong hookup can reverse the phase of the speaker cause a distortion and eventual damage to speaker and coil.if you are rtunning just a stereo that allows two speakers select speaker you want for left side and put that on left of the stereo and hook it up as left and same for the right and if you have a home theater you hook it all up the same but you hook up the center put it in center front of the room as far back to wall as you can but dnt cover it up it should be lower than the front left and right or the main left and right speakers.then if the5re is surround you put those like say you have a square room you put them in the corners on the back wall.if you have rear speakers you put them on the back wall.make sure all speakers excepty rthe center are level and equal distance apart

Yes there has to be a configuration for the 5.4 surround sound... look if the hardware came with a CD to update the sound driver. or Check if the its correctly configured. on the control panel then click Sound, then depending what windows you have have to lookk for the configuration or properties area and configure as 5.0 or sorround etc.

Well you have some options, you can either live with 2 speakers and change the settings back to default. Im assuming the colors you have are orange black and green. black= the surround sound speakers. orange= center and subwoofer. green=right left front

Now if u want true surround sound then you need to buy a new card that had all the ports for your speakers.
