Question about Onkyo HT-SR800 System

2 Answers

Only one surround back speaker works

When we first set up the HT-SR800, the surround back left speaker delivered no sound, but the right one did. I switched the surround back left and right wiring on the back of the receiver to see what would happen. The problem reversed: the surround back right speaker delivered no sound, but the left one did. Both speakers therefore work, and both speaker wires, just not at the same time.

    We found out that one speaker channel on the receiver was actually not functioning. We exchanged it, and now everything is fine. Thanks for the help!

Go into set up and then click down to speker set up and adjust the db hiss/humm decibals for each channel. It worked for me.

It sounds to me like one of your speakers may be mis-wired. Try reversing the speaker wire (don't switch right-for left, but switch negative for positive) and see if that changes anything.

It would help to know what equalizer you have, but I will assume it is a stereo analog unit. With the exception of the Tape In/Out connections on the back of the receiver there is really no provision for an equalizer. Even the Tape I/O connections are of little use if you can't monitor the source through the Tape In connections. Even if that were to work, it will not function for any digital sources you may have. You should be able to install this between an analog external source and the input to the receiver if you have one particular device you would like to tweak.
There are equalizer settings you can control within the receiver itself. You have the option of selecting the manual method for equalizer settings for each speaker or the default automatic method. Granted there are only 5 frequencies (3 for the sub) that you can adjust, but the fact that you can adjust each speaker separately is an advantage. The following was taken from the owner's manual:
• The front, center, surround, and surround back speakers
can be adjusted at 80 Hz, 250 Hz, 800 Hz,
2500 Hz, and 8000 Hz. The subwoofer can be adjusted
at 40 Hz, 80 Hz, and 160 Hz.
• While the Direct or Pure Audio listening mode is
selected, the equalizer settings have no effect.
• This procedure can also be performed on the AV
receiver by using its [SETUP], [ENTER], and arrow
buttons.

This is a very good receiver with some great features. If you have performed the Automatic Speaker Setup, you can go to the equalizer setting and select Off, Audyssey (automatic) or Manual.

Hope this helps.

Samsung HTX715 will not play 5.1 surround sound from TV signal only works from DVDs any ideas, back speakers do not produce any sound


In any native or automatic sound mode the HT will only produce mutichannel sound from multichannel sources delivering a digital bitstream. Is that the case with the TV? The best source for TV related audio is from the source, usually the cable box. Read the manual.

Toslink and 7.1 surround


For you to process 7.1 you need another pair of speakers. Your setup is 5.1 If you want to see some different 7.1 setups just google images of 7.1 speaker setups. Seeing it it easier than explaining it. Hope this helps

Surround sound speaker outlets are not working


Might be a loose connection problem. A contact cleaner is handy in cleaning the terminals. Try to swap the speaker connections if you don't have a multi-tester to check the resistance of the speakers. If the right front speaker will sound after connecting it to the left front speaker output, then it is a speaker coil problem. If not, might be an amplifier channel problem.

Onkyo HT-SR800 the surround speakers are not blasting


I had the same problem and fixed it by manually setting the surround speakers changing the Level Cal to +12dB. You will immediately notice a significant increase in volume and may need to back down on the dB's. What a diffence it makes!

Speakers A Off


Good news. This doesn't mean that anything is (necessarily) broken.

In the middle of the remote, there is an [ENTER] button surrounded by arrow keys. To the top, left of this of this arrangement, there is another button labeled "SP A/B". Turn your system on (and check that the volume isn't maxed out from your troubleshooting) and hit this button. Look for the display to say "Speakers A" or perhaps "Zone A" or similar. You will probably hear audio before you get this far.

If you are still having problems with this, try changing your speaker connections in the back. Attach your two main speakers (Front L/R) to the connections for "Speakers B" (the springed, push down, bare wire connection at the bottom, right). This is just for testing output via Speakers B. If this is as far as you get, respond with more information on your experience.

Surround sound


It must be about the sound quality need of your amplifier. The sound processor simply needs to get clear signals from sources such as fm/am receiver, dvd/cd players etc. in order to manage'em to give you the optimum surround sound. If the fm receiver has an "FM MUTE" option, I recommend that you turn it on. By doing so, you'll receive only good quality fm stations, furthermore your amplifier will let you get surround sound. The second issue you mentioned has its own answer inside. Use a "new" cd player, you can get optical cables, digital coax cables to improve the performance if you like..
