Question about Pioneer XVDV830/SDV830 DVD AUDIO HTP System

1 Answer

Do I need an amp?

We bought a DVD/CD tuner xvdv830....with about 5 speakers and sub woffer....do I need anything to complete this system. We bought at all boxed up, NEW...but my husband says you have to have an amp too.
I said, that can't be true, why would anyone sell something that did not have all the things in the unit (box) to make it work?
Another friend of ours said it IS complete...the amp is in the tuner.
Question: who is correct.
(My husband WON"T put it together because he thinks he is right)

Typically no. The device should plug into the wall, and amplify the signal by itself. It should have one or more input RCA jacks in the back for various external devices like VCRs, CD Players or your TV box, and it should have several output ports that the speaker wires and sub woofer plug in to. You shouldn't have to worry about the signal strength or amplifying it.

Just so long as you use the speakers that were designed for the unit. If you decided to use third party speakers with a higher impedance, then you would need an amp.

Have either of you looked at the quick setup instructions in the manual? It would have basic instructions on setting up a simple home theature, and if an amp is necessary, it would be indicated there.

Subwoofer is not working


Hello
Check the speaker of the Sub-Woofer. It is a common fault for sub-woffers that its lead wire will get loose contacted from its cone paper. You can repair this with caution. The lead wire can be bought from most oof the electronic spare part shops at your twon.

are you using more than one amplifier? it sounds like you may be using the blue wire to turn one amp and and the blue/white to turn the other one on. use the blue/white only. the blue wire is antenna remote and turns off when not in tuner mode.

Can listen to tuner but not mp3 or cd/ dvd


Make sure you are not using the power antenna lead to trigger the amp for your mid/highs, I just had this issue with the oem amp in my truck. When I chose any other source other than radio everything would die except bass. I used the ant lead for the amp for my door speakers and the amp trigger for my sub amp.

Could be Faulty RCA wires (they bring the sound from the radio to the amp) or a bad ground (the larger black wire coming out of the amp) This is under warrranty and you should not have to worry about it... bring it back, they make fix..

I need help with a system that I just bought.


Well it should be like this...Your amp is prologic which means that it has 5+1 outputs (sub out may be for active sub).Connect your speakers on specific output for each one (center,front left,front right,rear left,rear right and sub).Other devices,CD,tuner...connect to the amp with signal RCA-RCA cabels.On the back of the amp you have all marked inputs.You wasn't specific what do you want to hook?!If you want to hook this "new" to kenwood connect rec out of it to aux in on kenwood.If oposite kenwood rec out to "new" aux in.Hope that this is what you need
