Question about KLH R5100 Receiver

2 Answers

Can get either 1 or 2 speakers working at the same time.

I hook all 5 small speakers up properly with the sub. When I change theaters and such to get all 5 speakers working with the sub, I can only get either the center speaker with the sub, or just the front left and right speakers with the sub to work. When I run a test I get sound from all speakers individually. What's going on? The manual has no such help with this problem.
Many Thanks!

    I have a similar problem. When I hook up all five speakers, I can only get the left and right to work in stereo mode on analog. When I try to go to DVD/COA the left and right icons simply blink with no sound whatsoever. When I run it in test mode, I get no sound from any speakers. Is there a problem with my coax hook-up? What do I have to do to make the 5.1 channels work?

    All 5 speakers work when i'm using a dvd player or a gaming system but when i try to run the tv through it, i only get sound from the center and the sub on surround mode but on stereo the left and right work with the sub. I've tried about everything i can think of and have never had any problems until now so i'm guessing it has to be the receiver but i tried different inputs on that and it still didn't work. I've tried hooking it up to a different tv to see if it was the audio outputs and it didn't work on the other tv either. I've tried different cables and still nothing. I'm all out of ideas...

You say you change theaters which is different than what I propose. Have you tried the "SURR MODE" button on the front or on the remote? the only mode I use is prologic. it has all speakers in surround and doesn't sound like you are in a cave.

I have a klh home theater speakers with a subwoofer the sub work but when i hook up speakers no sound comes out?

The sub works but the speakers don't? Do you hook up the speakers to the subwoofer output "loop"? This is a circuit issue when it works and stops working. I have the same issue so I wound up joining the wires that go to the sub and the wires that go to the speaker together and place those connections into the sub. The sub works, the satellite speaker works and the impedance load is no issue for my system. Confused? Simply run your neg/pos wire to the sub and where it connects to the sub, run another cable to the speaker (pos to pos., neg to neg).

The only way to repair it would be to deal with component level repair. Although I have the experience, it is too petty and it works fine the way it is.

How do I hook up a non powered sub woofer on my htr-5630?

You will need an amplifier or 2 channel receiver. Hook the sub out rca jack to the rca inputs on this new amp or receiver and hook the speaker terminals on sub to speaker terminals on same amp or receiver. Your Yamaha receiver doesn't have any power for a passive sub.Just pick up any old fairly high powered receiver for fifty dollars and you're good to go.I use old dolby pro logic receivers as they are a dime a dozen today. Good luck.

Cannot get the surround to work correctly gpx dvd home theater

Check your setting it may be set to 2.1 or stereo. As for hooking up the tv check for aux or tv audio inputs on the dvd player and attach to the audio outs on the tv. You may need to change the settings on the tv, go to the audio menu on the tv and change from variable to fixed.

Can't get the surround sound to play the rear speakers and small front speaker

Sounds like it's just in 2 channel stereo mode, only 2 speakers working out of 5 and a sub, look for a selector switch for switching to 5.1 surround, as far as the no video problem try replacing the cable for the video connection.

Subwoofer volume and sound

i had the same problem when i tried to adjust speaker output levels, distance and equalizer manually without using audessy i reset everything to factory setting (0s)..and then ran 
audessy setup..reduce volume on your subwoofer to slightly above minimum(behind the subwoofer) before running the setup..once audessy setup is completed successfully..i started changing setup
manually..changed speaker config for front speaker to small (it is set as large by audessy setup), this should automatically adjust center and other speaker configuration (if not make sure to set them to small as well), then set the cross over frequency to 120..increase the volume on your subwoofer and now you should hear it fire..if this does not help..try playing some rock music with all channel streo mode..if your subwoofer does not fire even for this..then take the system back for exchange..
