Only tinny sound coming from the speaker MS904

I have a pair of MS904 Floor standing speakers. One of the speakers is only emitting a tinny sound. I swopped speakers over and problem followed it. Also put another set of speakers in their place and all worked fine SO NOT THE AMP. Also put speakers onto another amp and same problem. Can anyone advise me why this may have occurred. One minute speakers was fine and the next it wasn't. I am assuming that I will have to contact Mordaunt Short and return for warranty/repair

The "tiny sound" may be a blown woofer you are only getting sound from your high section.

I have a pair of KLH AV5001 speakers and I have them hooked up, there is sound but it's distorted and there's zero base, an instruction manual or any advice would be great, thank you.

Without knowing what they're hooked up too.. SOUNDS like your uder powering them, OR over powering them. Look at the back of the speakers the wattage is what your looking for, look at your amp, example: 1000w speaker running on 50w amp = not good.

I have a pair of Paradigm Monitor 3 V.2 High Def speakers for my front L&R home theater system. On speaker sounds very tinny with no bottom end. On inspection neither the main or tweeter loo

A few questions to help me help you: (1) Does the woofer cone move freely when you use your hands to move it (or do you feel friction)? (2) have you tried swapping the left speaker for the right to rule out the receiver as a cause?

I have just bought an amplifier for some old Kef speakers but the speakers sound very tinny. Does this mean they need replacing too?

It's not clear how the speakers sound with a different amp or if other speakers sound tinny with this amp. What's the source you're listening to? If it's Phono that opens up a different can of worms.

Can you certify that the electronics is faultless in this scenario? More info on that piece may be helpful.

The woofers could both be blown but I doubt it. Tweeters usally die if a speaker is overloaded. You should be able to see or feel the woofers vibrating in the presence of bass.

Tinny sound from L-310 SW's

This might be helpful. Most stereo receivers have 2 sets of speaker outputs, A and B. Each have outputs for left and right speakers. On the front panel of the receiver, there should be a switch to turn on/off speaker A/B. When using both A and B, (a set of speakers on each A and B) you will lose a bit of volume.

Another possibility is, if the speaker cable length to your covered porch is a long distance from the receiver, you will lose some power from the receiver. Try using a thicker gauge speaker cable for longer cable runs. Try 14 gauge or 16 gauge.

Can I place 901 Bose speakers directely on the floor? If not Can I use a shelf that is 18 inches distance from the floor? Thanks in advance for your answer

You can, but they will sound like **** down there. I recommend stands at least 24 inches tall, placed 24 inches away from wall for sound to reflect. I have mine hanging from ceiling for best sound.

Location for Bose speakers 901

You could, but the boundary effect of the speaker being on the floor will change how the sound is radiated into the room and therefore make the EQ less effective. Best bet is to try to find some sort of stand (maybe even make one out of wood) that put the 901 at the same height the stand would of that came with the speaker.

The speaker and the EQ are designed and engineered as a system.

Look online, the manual for the 901 shows them hanging from the ceiling also as an option.
