Need replacement speaker cables for dav-hdx576wf

Since noone else gave you a good answer I will. I lost some cables to mine a while ago and found this awesome jerry rig solution; Go to radio shack, and ask for '14-16 gauge star ring terminal connectors' Should come in a pack of 10 and be about 2$. On the back of the unit where these connectors fit, there should be two prongs. You will need two star-rings for each connector slot. Wire up your connectors and crimp the ends LIGHTLY with a pair of pliers. The star-ring connector connected to the negative wire should be inserted to the left prong, (left if you are facing the back of the unit), and the right prong is the positive. If you did everything correctly, you should be able to make your own wires for sony stereo systems whenever you need to. Saved my ***, hope it did the same for you. Here is a link to what they look like.

I have a sony sava d900 and im guessing i put positives and negatives wrong and the speakers stopped working all i heard was a pop and smoke out the back???? please help

Reversing positives and negatives does no electrical harm. It only affects the perceived imaging if it's different than the other speakers.

TOUCHING or shorting them together or to something is a whole 'nuther matter.

You blew something up. Try it with no speakers or wires attached then take it to the doctor.

No sound from sony dav-fr10w front speakers back surround works fine

First thing to check is the simple solution. Make sure you have the positive and negative hooked up correctly and also make sure that the wire ends are bared enough and that you have good clean contact in the snap terminal.

Yeah I'm having a similar issue. Front speakers and center speaker working fine but rear speakers are very quiet and the subwoofer isn't working at all. Everything is connected correctly as well if you figure something out let me know.

Just purchased system. Our home was wired for

There is no absolute phasing for a given speaker. It's more important that they all have the same relative phasing.

Assuming the installer was consistent with his phasing of the speaker wires, you decide which one you would like to be red (positive or +) and black (negative or -). Kepp that convention throughout all of your speakers.

Outdoor speakers

By hooking up extra speakers, unit might be damaged or refuse to power-up and protection mode can be enabel. Reason is that extra speaker will change impedance of amplifier out-put.

Out door speakers

Salutations pspk,

Because there are special speaker connections on your unit it may make this harder to do. It may be possible to connect extra speaker wires directly to the end of your existing speaker wires. These wires could then be connected to a wireless transmitter or extender to feed sound to your speakers.

I will warn you this may cause sound quality issues as you would be basically splitting the power levels to your existing speakers.

I hope this helps.

Speaker errror message

The usual fix for "Speaker err" message is to simply unplug the sub-woofer power cord to reset the speaker diagram, plug it back in and remember to "match the negatives to negative, positives to positives" and never try to replace the original speakers with anything but equivilent speakers, adding on more speakers can cause the "Speaker err" message and an inoperative system.

No speakers?

if you are trying to get rid of all the speakers & just hooking up the sound to the tv speakers, what you need to look for on the back of the dvd system is you need to find an audio out. I know the is one or two audio input, but I do not think there are any audio outputs. I don'e think you can get sound out of this system without your speakers hooked up. sorry.
