Cannot hear voices clearlly when playing dvd, adjusted bass down, but it seems like the music overpowers the voices/conversations. new dvd's are digital, is that the problem that the series II can't seperated voices?

Erm,, when you say you cant hear voices clearly. do you mean that they seem to be a little lower in "obviousness" than they should be or are they way down ther as the background level is so much higher.

1. a little lower means you need to bring the trebble up and the bass down and bring up the centre and reduce the surround , this is basically tuning the sytem to your room.
you also need to check the dvd setting for audio out to ensure that the settings for the audio on the dvd are set to 5.1 ( if the little black spare connector is connected to your dvd player) or else set to stereo for "normal " palyback.

2. if the voice is way down compared to background sound track.
are you using an amp for the bass channel, this may need to be turned down. or the thing that looks like a spare connector on the end of the cable going to your cd5 unit is not correctly installed. can you tell me what the set up is.

    o yes i need to ask for clarity is it a digital system or an analog system ( the digital system appears to have a spare cable that should be connected to a 5.1 or digital source such as a small digital amp (even something like an i pod ) or the dvd player directly itself.

    if it is diital, make sure the cable is connected correctly to the dvd and the dvd is playing with a 5.1 signal ( found under audio settings for the dvd being played)

I cant hear any voices on dvds played throught the dvd system just the bass and background music its all plugged in correctly and set on clear help!


Hi,
please double check your wiring again as if you cross the polaritys (+ and -) you put the audio signal out of phase, thus casing cancellaion of things such as voices.

When watching a DVD, the surround sound plays all background music but the actors voices are not heard - can hear music and voices in 2 speaker only - TV programs play in 2, 3, and 5 speaker mode.


If there is nothing at all from the center channel while watching a DVD, first try resetting the system (unplug the power cord from the sub, and the DC power cord from the media center for 30+ seconds) If a reset doesn't help this, run the "adaptIQ" setup disc again. Honestly, this is a very odd problem for that system to have. (especially since we know the center speaker works for other sources) I hope this helps.

People can hear background noises on my PC but not my voice


Hi,

Perform some simple steps as follows.

1. Double click on the volume control icon in the system tray, that is on the right hand bottom side of the screen. Check if the microphone is muted.

2. Right click on the same icon, and select "adjust audio properties." You will now get a window that says Sounds and Audio Devices Properties. Click on the tab named voice on top of that window, and check what is selected as the voice recording device. Check in the drop down menu to change the device and use the "test hardware" option to test the mic.

3. Make sure your microphone is working fine. Other people are not hearing your music from your microphone, but from your system itself.

Get back if you have additional questions.

Stereo Sound


You could start by adjusting the Treble and Bass. The treble is what makes the high notes more nodicable, so if you turn the Treble up you should be able to hear more vocals. The Bass is what makes the low notes more nodicable, so if you turn the bass down you should be able to stop the shaking which I'm guessing is the low notes. On the other hand if you have an aftermarket radio then there might be a Mute or ATT button. Theses are for instant quiet, just repress the Mute or ATT button and it should be fine. I hope I could help.

No voice sound through speaker with DVD system, only music?


first check the settings on the audio menu of the dvd player. make sur it is set to 5.1 (if available) otherwise set it to stereo and your system should decode it.
assuming the second step is okay : as other dvd you play seem to work) it still may be that your unit is decoding stereo inputs just fine and 5.1 is not working properly....
so if adjusting audio settings in dvd play back menu dont work,
check that the cables to the satellite speakers are connected correctly and all plugged in soundly ( voice is high frequency,- coming from satellites - the garbled noises you hear are the base ( low freq) elements of voice which are coming from the bass box ( that the X.1 part of 5.1) and so that is obviously working. ,
