I am not getting any sound from my center speaker ... please advise.

I have a sony STRDE575 receiver, hooked up to a PS3 through optical cable. I turn on the receiver do a test tone on it and I get sound from all the speakers. I put on a movie and from thirty seconds to two minutes i lose sound from the center speaker. I have replaced the speaker wire, checked the actual speaker, changed settings from micro speakers to normal and i still lose middle speaker sound. Please advise!!!

Do not know how to wire my sa-w10 speakers together

For surround sound, you need an A/V receiver with 5.1 or 7.1 surround capability. Depending on what kind of receiver you have, the DVD player, satellite/cable box, etc hooks to the receiver, those signals go out to the TV, and the speakers hook to the receiver. The receiver decodes the signal from the cable/satellite box or DVD player and routes it to the appropriate speakers. If the TV program or DVD isn't HD or coded for surround sound, the best you can expect is 2.1 channel stereo sound. OR, you can hook everything (DVD, satellite/cable box) to the TV and run an optical cable from the Digital Output of the TV to the receiver, which is basically the same thing, just a different way to hook everything up. Hope this helps

How can I set up with my lcd Sony tv

If your home theater receiver has a digital optical input, run a digital optical cable from digital optical OUTPUT on TV to digital optical INPUT on receiver. If receiver is older and only has analog inputs, you can get an 1/8 inch to RCA cable(red/white), and plug 1/8 inch side to an output on back of TV and plug RCA side to aux input(or CD or cassette input) on back of receiver. DO NOT PLUG INTO PHONO INPUT! Either one of those cables can be found at Walmart, radio shack, or best buy, etc. Digital Optical cable is definitely the best choice, but I just used the 1/8 to RCA setup to hook up a Sony led to my brother's early 90's Pioneer receiver(not the ideal setup, but will work). Hope this helps.

I have a yamaha 797 receiver and bose 901 VI to run my ps3 to my receiver it has no hdmi or optic

The manual for the 901's is here.

For the purpose of this discussion the 901 active equalizer is the same as any Tape deck or audio processor. You could place the 901 Active Equalizer in the VCR or MD/Tape loops; or remove the Pre Out / Main In jumpers and place it there but that would you could never use headphones as they wouldn't sound right with 901 active equalization. See page 10 and 11.

The PS3 is just in audio device for this topic. Anything that has a headphone output can be adapted to feed an RCA cable pair for standard stereo to any audio device with a standard RCA input (except PHONO). Get a cable like the one described here:

and connect it into any available analog input EXCEPT "Phono". Turn the MP3 player volume up.

I have an older model Yamaha HTR 5830 receiver and I want to set it up for surround sound (5.1). When I test the receiver all five speakers give back a signal, but nothing ever comes out of the center or...

The broadcaster of the TV station has to tell you they are transmitting surround sound - sometimes they are just transmitting stereo. Also, the media as in CD's and DVD movies must have surround sound embedded or recorded on it to allow surround sound.

I have my ps3 connected to my t.v via HDMI, but want to get surround sound on my ps3, how can i do this as my receiver doesnt have optical or hdmi outputs?

Does your TV have any audio outputs at all? It is a new feature of a lot of TV's to have at least an Optical output. Use that to run back into your receiver if available.

We have a Sony Trinitron and a Sony STR-K670P. We use to have it hooked up to a DVR, but now we went down to basic cable. I can't seem to get sound to come through my surround system. Any advise out there?...

if your trying to use the dvr still your probably not connecting it all properly. make sure that. having a sony trinitron you have alot of connections on the back. if you connect all of the accessories that you have on your tv directly into each input and use the tvs main output connection to connect straight to your surround sound. this should fix your problem. plus you wont have a bunch of stuff hooked up to your surround sound receiver

The 'Subwoofer' output on your receiver is used to connect to a powered subwoofer with a built in amplifier. Your KLH speakers use what is called a 'passive' subwoofer, it gets its power from the receiver and then passes the higher frequencies to the left and right front speakers after taking out the low frequencies for the subwoofer. A speaker system with a passive subwoofer is good for casual listening, but a powered subwoofer is required for really hearing low frequencies and rumble in movies. The KLH speakers you have were highly rated in their time for their price. The four satellite speakers and center channel speaker have very good sound compared to the little 'midget' surround sound speakers most people buy today.

Here's how you hook them up:

- The left and right front channels from your receiver terminals should go to the terminals on the subwoofer marked 'From Amplifier'
- Your left and right front speakers are then connected to the subwoofer terminals marked 'To Speakers', they do not connect directly to your receiver.
- Your center speaker is connected to your receiver terminals marked 'Center'
- Your rear speakers are connected to your receiver terminals marked 'Surround'

That should get you up and running. If the bass isn't good enough with the passive subwoofer, you can get a decent powered subwoofer like the Velodyne VX-10 for about $150 and 'kick it up a notch'. Good luck and enjoy....
