Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I have a PIONEER VSX-605S Stereo Receiver.
I have Polk Audio Speakers attached to it. The speakers take 2 connections to the back: 1 connection for the highs and 1 connection for the lows. It's like having 2 sets up speakers hooked up. I know they are Polk Audio because of the covers, but they have no other information on them as far as model # or impedance information.
Now for my problem:
If i just have the Front A speakers on, I can go as loud as I want with volume.
If i turn on the the Front B speakers (which are the highs or tweeters i guess) the display reads: ''OVERLOAD'' blinks and shuts down.
Why is this? No other attached components are turned on. I am just using the radio tuner and one set of Polk Audio Speakers with 2 sets of connection for Front A and B.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Ok, how much is "a bit"? If you are operating your unit at the 50% or more level, your unit is working as it should, as DVD and CD players output more signal than other sources...accordianman

SOURCE: Overload Problem
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

Fastest way to test is to disconnect all speakers and turn up the vol. If it clips it needs service, then re-connect 8ohm speakers one by one and test until you find the speaker or channel that shorts. Then take that same speaker and hook it up to another channel and test, if it shorts, you know now it is either the speaker or the wire. Now, use a new piece of speaker wire from the same channel that caused it to short, replace the old and test. If it shorts, you've got a problem with the speaker. If your handy with a multimeter, check the resistance at the speaker and you will have your answer. If you are not familliar with a multimeter, just hook up a different speaker where the bad one is and test. It's just process of elimination. Hope this helps

www.pioneerusa.com then support. I could not find your "Exact" model, and it could depend on where it was purchased. Look at units closely labeled to yours and chances are it will be the same with a different #. Hope this helps

Sounds like the speaker circuit is overloading or the receiver is overheating.
Check to make sure all speakers are in phase. Pos to Pos. Neg to Neg.
Make sure receiver has plenty of cooling room.
Hope this helps.
