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!

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

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.

Subwoofer channel no longer has output

Is your sub powered (amplifier built-in)? If so, connect your MP3 player directly to the sub input and see if you hear audio. If you do hear audio, check for cable problems from Panasonic to sub input. If the sub is unpowered then it's either the speaker wiring, an intermittent sub and/or your Panasonic at fault.

Yamaha rx-v2500 receiver how to hook up speakers


Follow these steps to connect a powered sub woofer to your receiver: You typically have two options when connecting a powered sub woofer. Input (1) on the rear of the sub woofer would be used when connecting the sub woofer to the receiver using speaker wires. You would then connect the main speakers to the opposite end, or output or the sub woofer to the main speakers. Option (2) would be using RCA line level output jacks, input (2) on the rear panel of the sub woofer directly to the single sub woofer output on the back of an AV receiver. blank.gif

Front speakers won't work simultaneously with the rest of my 5.1 system

This is an either-or situation. As your manual explains, SP-A is one set of speakers and SP-B is another separate set. Your Yamaha receiver should have an SP-A + SP-B setting but given the way your speakers are currently configured it's anybody's guess as to what the result will be.

My powered subwoofer no longer works through the receiver

if you have your front and centers set to 'small' you want your Bass out to be subwoofer only, and the rca jack labeled 'sub out' is the only place to connect your sub to if you want to control the frequencies with your reciever. I dont know the brand of your sub, or the inputs on the back of it to advise you where to connect, but it sounds like it worked for you at one time, but suddenly it does not

Everything is hooked up and all the Speakers work except the Subwoofer and I dont know why

Make and model would help, also if it is a powered sub.
But, check if the front speakers a set to large or small. Should be set to small if using a sub.
In the menu you can also switch the sub yes or no check that too.

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.

I get no bass sound from sub-Woofer connected to Yamaha RX-V465

Check your speaker settings in Setup menu / Speaker Setup / Manual / Config (and then in this submenu also Equalizer).
In Config, choose where should low frequency sound go - subwoofer and/or front speakers (if they are big enough). The settings are: Bass Out: SWFR/Front/Both.
Also check Subwoofer phrase in SWFR Phase.
Check settings of all speakers, they can be Large / Small / None. If small, frequencies lower than "Crossover" settings, will not be put on them.

Woofer assistance

You need to buy an active (self-amplified) subwoofer. Attach it to the Subwoofer Preout connector.

Go into Speaker Setup (SP SYS/SETUP Button near upper right side of Op Panel) and follow the prompts.

The parameter we're most interested in is the question "Subwoofer Yes" or "No".

Some guidance when selecting speaker parameters for the rest of the channels:

SMALL vs LARGE: This has nothing to do with size so much as it deals with the BASS handling capacity of the speakers. If you say SMALL, most low frequencies from those channels will be re-routed from them to the Subwoofer. If you say LARGE the channels will still get the low frequencies they deserve.

I imagine you would be able to answer LARGE for all of your speakers.

Even if you have all LARGE speakers defined the Sub will still have work to do as it will be dealt the LFE (Low Frequency Effects) from encoded movies and all or most of the content below certain frequencies.
