Very week sound

Definitely need more info - such as type of amplifier or receiver, how many speakers you are running, whether the subwoofer is powered or not.
As a simple test procedure: Disconnect all speakers and plug in a pair of headphones. Get a strong audio signal? Good, move on. No signal or week signal, you have an amplifier issue before the audio even gets to the speakers.
Next: Disconnect all speakers, turn the volume down, and connect one speaker to the left output channel. Slowly increase the volume. If that works, do the same on the right channel. Everything OK? You're putting out enough gain on both channels. Sometimes one channel goes bad. You can still listen to your sound in mono moder, or drive two speakers from the single working output. Not stereo, but dual mono. Move on.
Connect left and right speakers but not the subwoofer. Repeat the test. Whatever is left is probably the problem. If the subwoofer is powered, check the power supply or incoming voltage. If the other speakers are driven off the subwoofer or powered from there, that's likely the problem.

Connect speakers

All power amplifiers are designed to operate with a maximum current. This is limited by a minimum speaker impedance load. Your amplifier manual will specify the minimum load on output channels. High quality amplifiers can drive speakers with a combined impedance of 2 ohms or less. To calculate your parallel load, as you have requested, use the following formula. 1/Total load = 1/mgongo speaker impedance + 1/HW-E5500 speaker impedance.
Example. If your mgongo speakers have a nominal impedance of 8 ohms and the HW-E550 speakers have a nominal impedance of 8 ohms, then the formula is 1/Answer=1/8 + 1/8
1/Answer = 2/8
1/Answer = 1/4
Answer = 4.
If your amplifier can drive a 4 ohm speaker load without clipping then you are OK.

I have a Onkyo TX-8222 receiver. Sound is ok for music but voices are very low. When two voices, one is very clear abd the other very low. What is the problem ?

You don't say what source(s) are affected. I'm guessing TV or Cable-TV is the problem because music with vocals has voices and you say it sounds ok. Your speakers have no clue whether a sound is a voice or music so that lets THEM out and your receiver doesn't know or care either.

In the modern multichannel world it's usually assumed your electronics are multichannel. This receiver is old-school stereo.

The Center channel is usually where voices are found but some systems (like yours) don't have a Center speaker so they have to be configured to share the Center duty with the front left and Right speakers.This isn't possible or even normally necessary in your case. WYSIWYG

The audio coming in from 'wherever' should be correctly mixed to 2-channels at the source or you'll probably be missing something. I'd look higher up the audio food chain for where the voices are being attentuated. If a cable box is involved I'd look at its audio settings regarding stereo mix-down

Wait, I just had an inspiring thought. Centered voices being mono in nature would partially cancel out if your two speakers were out of 'phase' with each other. Bass would also suffer. Make sure your two speakers are wired identically regarding the red and black (or plus and minus) conductors. If turning the Balance control fully to one side makes bass of voices sound louder you probably have a phase mismatch. Reverse the wiring on either speaker to match the other. There is no absolute right or wrong for phasing as long as they're all the same.

I recently changed Receivers to a Pioneer. When I attempt to set preset radio channels, the sound sounds like it is coming from the PS 8. There is no treble. Help.

is your speakers broken down and set to the right channels (the presetting of radio channels, should not not affect the sound) is your a-b switch set to one or both? all connections are correct (front/center and rear) . you can also try a equalizer or pre amp that is ready to handle 5.1 system

Subwoofer outputs not functioning

Have a good look at your set up in regards to volume output to each channels .
you may have only one channel working due to volume turn down or a faulty connection from the console head unit .
After going through all these , i would suggest to get your sub amp checked as you may have a faulty amp .

No sound in sound bar and subwoofer

It could be that the unit is bad, it could also be that the device providing the input is bad. I doubt the cables are bad, but that could be also. Could it be possible that your television has a menu setting that turns the outputs off and on?

Even without the sub, you still get sound through the Bar.

Only way to test it is, different cables, alternate device to provide input for sound.

How do I connect my bose 901 active equalizer to a onkyo tx-sr506

AV receivers are notoriously incompatable for Bose 901s. The problem is the EQ charges the entire system and could damage the surround processor. Some higher end AV receivers, including some of the newer Onkyo models have pre out power in inputs on main or all seven channels.which you could install your EQ directly between pre amp & power amp without damaging processor. You can also add a two-channel amplifier to the pre out jacks front channels and use your recever's remote to control volume.

Bose acoustimass 15 series 1 channel loss

Sounds like you may have a blown output transistor or chip, which generally show no external signs of damage. This would take an experienced technician to find and fix, and I commend you for knowing to check the speakers, receiver and cables through substitution! If you're handy with a soldering iron and can find the parts, try replacing the output transistors or chips in question. These are what usually fail in audio power amplifiers - also check any power resistors for opens - some of them are designed to act as fuses to protect the more expensive components.
