Pioneer vsx-515 trying to connect to sony bravia lcd tv and wharfedales speakers with 12'cube sub... any wireing diagrames please? I do have an optical wire to has have been told they...


Optical is the clearest information you can get.
Its pure light!!!!

Sony bravia has a optical out, plug that into optical in on your Receiver.
reciever should have a dedicated sub woofer lead out.
obviously goes to the subwoofer

then just your speakers, i'm assuming you know to match wire colour of speakers to colour of the rear of your reciever. that is red to red, black to black??

If by chance your wires are not red and black, red is positive on your receiver, black is negative.

The receiver outputs for speakers will be written so you know which two outputs(red and black) go to which speaker.

Make sure you match positve to positive and negative to negative, otherwise your speakers will
sound real dull and you won't know why.

Hope that helps.

I have a power acoustik 0V4-1200 amp and 2-12" kicker cvr dual 2 ohms. My amp keeps getting really hot and turning off. I have two pair of rca jacks from my cd player to the amp. One speaker hooked up...


i have found the specs to your amp. 1. Amplifier connections: Lets make things simple. As we look at the amplifier speaker connections, we will number the outputs 1 2 3 4 from left to right for the top connections and again 5 6 7 8 from left to right for the bottom connections. 1 should be connected to a positive (RED) (+) on sub woofer A on voice coil (a) 4 should be connected to a negative (BLACK) (-) on sub woofer A on voice coil (b) Now using a small piece of cable, connect negative of voice coil (a) to positive of voice coil (b) Follow the same procedure for the other sub woofer using 5 and 8 as 1 and 4 This configuration should make the amp run at 4 OHM BRIDGED x 2. i hope this helps. dreamsystems

I have 2 type r 12s and i forgot how the wires go when i took them out of the box. by wires i mean the two wires that connect from the sub to the round terminal in the back of the box. can someone show me...


If you want the speakers wired in parallel, then just make sure positive(red) to Positive(red), and negative(black) to Negative(black) .With 2 speakers, just jump from one speaker to the other....positive red to red, and negative black to black..

JUST NEED TO KNOW WHAT PIN RECIEVES THE B +


Ken,

Most common for all car Stereo wire color coding are:

Solid RED wire = +12V
Solid Black wire = negative ( - )
Solid Yellow wire = +12V (power ON /OFF) can add additional toggle switch for switching on and off the car stereo

Solid blue wire = Power antenna

the rest of the wires are for car speaker having positive and negative polarity.
note: for the speaker connection wires, all the solid colored wires are positive side (+) of speaker. those solid colored wire with stripe black line are for negative side (-) of the speaker

cheers,
mark

I have to connect 11 speakers in a restaurant to a 2 zone amplifier that is 500 watts per Chanel. How do I choose the power of the speakers and Which way do I wire them --- in parallel?


what size speakers and what watts, how many channels on the amp, you could do it in either way
There are two ways to wire electrical components. In parallel or in series. Both are important to understand, especially when properly hooking up speakers to amplifiers.
Parallel wiring is connecting components to a source so that they share the same voltage. To put that in a useful way, it would be connecting all of the speaker positive terminals to the positive terminal of the amplifier and connecting all of the speaker negative terminals to the negative terminal of the amplifier.
Series wiring is connecting components to a source so that they share the same current. To put that in a useful way, it would be connecting the amplifier's positive terminal to the positive terminal of the first speaker and then connecting the negative terminal of the first speaker to the positive terminal of the second speaker and so on. The final speaker in the chain will have it's negative terminal connected to the negative terminal of the amplifier. Hope it Works

Nissan 2008 Frontier Crew Cab speaker wiring.


1. Check your receiver first, and if you can see the wires in the back,

2. Test your speakers, you can use 9v battery and find out which wire for which speaker, connect them one by one.

3. If you have floating ground receiver, ( each speaker wire from the receiver has + and – wires)please be careful, you have to connect them positive to positive and negative to negative, do not let wire touch the ground, otherwise burn out your unit, but if it is a common ground unit, you can connect the + positive side of the speaker and connect all –negative wires together.

Hope this can help

Turns off 5-10 mins after turned on


One thing to check would be the speaker connections. If this receiver worked before you moved it and only started doing this after it was moved, that could be the source of the problem.
If the speakers are connected improperly it could cause it to go into protect mode after a few minutes.
Also check the speaker wires and make sure you don't have any frayed wire sticking out and touching the chassis of the reciever or shorting together.
The phase control symbol is something I would need to research, I have repaired several of these recievers and do not remember the phase control ever being a problem.
Logic would dictate that something is connected wrong, my first thought is the speakers, but it could be something else. I would go back over every single connection on the back of this unit and double and triple check them all. make sure the positive speaker connections are going to the positive speaker post and negative to negative.
It is also easy to connect the speakers to the wrong jacks on the reciever. You may be bridging a channel or two and that would cause the reciever to get hot very fast and shut down.
If none of this helps you may just have to take it in to a service center. I would reccomend an authorized Pioneer service center. They can at least call Pioneer tech support and talk to Mark, Bernie, or Mike at Pioneer. They are on top of all things Pioneer.

I will be happy to help you further if you need it.
