Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Hi Fi Speaker

I've tried different speakers and new cabling, but the problem persists. The speaker will be fine at first but after about an hour the sound on one side gets weaker until there is no sound at all,

It's always out of the same connectors on the amp.

Regards
Alan

Might be your amp dying on you? Overheating and giving up in the end. Open it up and check the output stage. Depending on make/model it's using power modules or a few transistors per channel. The modules are little black boxes screwed onto a heatsink as are the transistors, only a bit smaller and usually two per channel. When one of the pairs feels warmer than the other the problem lies there. Best to bring it into a repair shop.

Amplifier signal does not reach both speakers equally strong


Check the balance (L/R) settings. IT is very unusual for something like this to happen. The problem usually is a total failure of one amp. If this is not the case then it might need to be adjusted and that would take special equipment.

Problem with Phillips FA 443 Amplifier


I have a similar problem with my Kenwood Basic M1D , C2 setup. Move the input select switch through all of its selections a couple of times, this will clean the contacts and should give you a couple of years more life. Or get the Amp serviced there are some very good small Hi-Fi shops. Incidentally the earphone port is usually a signal taken before the amplifier but after the pre amp so is unaffected by the power amplifier. Unfortunately it could aslo be a failed channel in the amp. These can be repaired or replaced and will be cheaper than a new unit.

How do you fix the sound in speakers


Try the following : 1 Temporarily connect each speaker to a different sound source, to detect if the left or right speaker is faulty, or both.
2 Temporarily connect a different speaker to your HI FI (or whatever your sound sustem is).
This way you have identified if the problem is in the machine or the speakers.
If the problem is in the speaker, remove the screws and carefully remove the actual speaker (4 screws and two wires to un-solder). Take the speaker to a good audio components shop and buy an equivalent.
Re solder the 2 wires & replace all screws. NOTE: Do not muck around with the cross-over electronic components, unless you have the skills).

I have a Kenwood stereo receiver model k2 3600 , the left speaker keeps going out , the right speaker works fine. I've tried adjusting the speaker wire for the left speaker, and I always end up having...


HI,
BASED ON THE INFO YOU GAVE I HAVE SOME SUGGESTIONS BELOW..

1, switch the working right speakers cable to left output and problem left to right (from the back of receiver -not from the speakers it self..) to see if problem continues..

2.After switching them ,if it (old left new right one ) still stops left speaker cable may have short ( a tiny cable inner pieces may touching to other side ) at either at the back of receiver output or at the end ,at speaker input .
make sure you control it carefully...if the problem persist please contact to me..

Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up

Hope this helps!

Hi Thanks for your help, One year old Sony mini


sir i think ypur unit is ok and run correctly... try to check your speaker maybe your speaker got open or burnt... you can test it by swapping your speaker to another unit or you can test your speaker using multitester...just point your selector at resistance test a speaker has 8ohms reading....


the speaker has a two terminal.. a positive terminal and a negative terminal... your multitester has a two lead.. red lead which is a positive and a black lead which is negative..
measure-speaker-impedance-1.1-800x800.jpg Multimeter probe sockets (NL Graphics) Insert the probes of a digital multimeter in the correct sockets of the multimeter. There may be several different sockets for the probes depending on what parameters you're measuring. Look for the sockets marked "impedance" or displaying the ohm symbol. Different models and brands of multimeters will vary in their labeling, so check your multimeter's manual if you're not certain about which one to use.

  • 2 Select the range for the multimeter. Since you'll be measuring fairly low resistance levels with a speaker, choose a range that will encompass readings in the 2-16 ohm range. It's extremely rare to find speakers that will have an impedance outside of that range.
  • 3 Touch one probe to each of the speaker terminals and check the reading. This will be the impedance of the speaker. Record the measurement, and when you're done, turn off the multimeter to preserve the batteries for the next time you need the multimeter.

    Hi,
    There is no speaker cable extensions available for your system but if you goto www.BogueEngineering.com you will find speaker cables with the special connector and they come in any custom length you need, even if you need 100 feet speaker cable you wil get it and they also come in many different heavy duty gauges. You can also email these guys at

    Rx-v1800 with check sp wires problem,narrowed it down to the center channell speaker which is 8ohms the rest of the speakers are 4ohms center speaker checks out fine on other receivers,could the ohm...


    So are you saying the error goes away when you disconnect the center speaker and its cables? Sounds like you have one more step to isolate the exact external component: try a different speaker as the center and/or try a different speaker cable.

    Did you set the speaker impedance (Page 33 and 117) to 6-ohm min. AND - the manual does actually say "the impedance of each speaker must be 6-ohms or higher" for all BUT the Front speakers.

    Connect BX8A speaker to PC


    Hello waddragon,

    First, let's start with the BX8a. Those are powered speakers (built-in amplifier in each) so, you do not need a pre-amp. What you need to connect them to your computer is a 3.5mm to XLR cable OR a 3.5mm to 1/4" TRS cable, also known as 3.5mm to two 1/4" mono plugs (the back of the BX8a has inputs that accept either type). Cables are available at most any electronics stores. Make sure you buy a long enough cable to run from the back of the computer to where the speakers will be.
    It sounds that you only have one BX8a which means you'll be listening to only one channel of the stereo output. In any case, make sure before connecting the speaker(s) to the computer that speaker power is off and volume control is at minimum. Connect the 3.5mm cable end to Line Out 1 jack of the X-Fi sound card and either the XLT or TRS ends to the speaker(s) input(s). Play some audio content on your computer, turn on speaker(s) and slowly increase volume to a safe level. Everything should work fine.
    Let me know how it goes.

    Cerwin Vega ve-28s subwoofer and new Cervin Vega 2-way satellites


    I bought my VE-28s and it did exactly that crackled, cerwin replaced part in amp but few months later problem persisted. they then replaced entire amp assembly and its been fine. i really push it to and its been fine. to test it, unplug the connection from amp/ reciever and see if it persists. if so its the sub, if not its the amp/ reciever. dont dump it, these subs really crank and can put out some deep loud bass.
