Wharfedale 9.5 Diamond Front Speaker

My front left speaker seems to be softer than the right. Playing any movie , music I notice the right speaker is audibally louder. At an earshot from the left speaker it sounds like the mid-range intermittently "stutters and splutters". The signal comes thru broken , disappears for 1-2 seconds and the re-appears. After I give the volume a bit of a crank it "pops" and plays okay for a while and then over time it goes back to its "spluttering." The problem is intermittent , but frustrating. I have the speaker cable connected to the HF binding posts and have recently changed the cable for a better quality. It is bound correctly as well as the banana plugs in the amp are fine. After leaving it overnight and playing it the next morning , I notice the same spluttering until I rev the amp again. Please advise!

    The problem is exactly the same as described in every detail. It is the same speaker and I could not have put the problem down more accurately.

You have a poor connection somewhere in your signal path. This sort f problem could be anywhere from inside the speaker box to the output stages of the amp. speaker protection relay in the amp, or even a noisy vol control or dry solder joints in the output stages of the amp. eliminate anything external to the amp by swapping right for left and test, spray the speaker protection relay in the amp with 2-26 or burnish the contacts with a piece of white business card cut to fit into the contacts. You will see deposits on the card that you have cleaned from the contacts. Carefully inspect the soldering about the output stages(heatsink area) and re-solder any poor or cracked solder joints. Good luck... these are the most common problems. I can go further in if the problem remains after you have done this. Good luck

Please tell me all the connections on movie star 60+


Each of the five satellite speakers connect directly to an AV Receiver that you buy a separate device.

Here's the back of the sub. The sub either connects to the LFE Sub Out from the receiver to the white RCA/Phono Left Input. Or you can use speaker connection cables, AV Receiver front L & R to Speaker Level Inputs, and then Speaker Level Outputs to the front satellite speakers.

Hello
The voice coil of your speaker is scratching with its magenet body inside. It can't be repaired. Whatever we do will go in vein. there is no possibility other than replacing this speaker. Some people will recone it, but qulaity cannot be assured. it will sound; but with respect to the other speaker, it won't match. Coil position, resistance, number of turns per unit length ete are determining the magnetic strenth of the coil, and therby sound. Wharfedale eill have its secret, and they wont give it out, as they have gained it with tremndous reserch.
So in my opinion, it will be best for you to replace the damaged speaker with and other one of same type and number. All details will be printed on its body. Buy the original one. Do not compromise. Woofers are the heart of any sound system. Keep this in mind. OK.

Put the jumpers back in as shown. Hook your speaker leads to either top or bottom. The entire array of drivers will be active.

Make your receiver aware they are LARGE for the purposes of bass reproduction so some bass will get out to them. FYI, many AVR's will only allow Large Rear speaker selection if you also have Large Fronts. Refer to the manual(s).

On the back of the speaker are six deep holes that screws the back panel to front baffle.There are six sponge plugs normally.You have to dig these out with
a long standard screwdriver or however you can get them out to expose the 6 Phillips head screws below them.Remove the 6 Phillips head screws and the whole speaker comes apart,leaving just the box.Good luck.

Surround sound


Hi,

Hope this helps,

you need to press system menu on the remote..

on the front panel display acually on the DAV unit "DEC. MODE" appears..

Press enter..

Press the up and down buttons to cycle through the options, what your looking for is "PRO LOGIC", "PLII MOVIE" and "PLII MUSIC" ..

Select one of these and this should work.



All the best

Installation Help


This means that you have purchased a three piece home theatre system. Two tweeters and a sub-woofer. Assuming you are using a Stereo player (Tape/CD/DVC)you have to connect the Left Output of the Stereo placer to the Left Input at the back of the Sub-Woofer and the Right output to the Right input of the subwoofer by cables. Then take tweeters and connect them to Right speaker and Left speaker output at the back of the sub-woofer ( note if the speakers are marked L/R, then connect them to the subwoofer output accordingly. In case you are using a 5.1 player, then only connect the front right and front left to the Right and Left input at the back of the subwoofer. You are and you can now start playing your music or movies and and you will get theatre quality sound.

Problem with Diamond 8.4


No - sounds like the speaker/ cross over is faulty - I assume there are only one set of connections on the back - on some speakers you have 4 connections for dual wiring - and you usually bridge those out Play a piece of music with some drumming in it and you should see the midrange move a lot Just to make sure there is not a problme with the Amp - swap the speakers around - so you have a left speaker and a right speaker connected physically move the left speaker over to the rightside and connect to right side cables - and the right speaker to the left side and connect to left cables Now if the problem goes over to the other side - its the speaker thats fault if it stays on the sam side - its the amp
