For the rear surround speakers to work, the sound must be encoded in surround sound, and most games, if any, are not. The amp doesn't 'see' and information encoded in the sound signal for the rear speakers, therefore you get no sound.

Hope this helps, and please rate my advice.
Thank you, and good luck!!

My wireless subwoofer keep cutting off and coming back on when the music or movie is playing


Some/most Sub Woofers have a Switch that turns them Off/On/ or Auto. On Auto, the Sub only turns on when there is a signal present. ( sound coming into the Sub ) When there is no signal, the sub goes into standby mode. Wireless subs may be made to be in standby mode as the default.

Hi! I have purchased a JAMO S608 HCS 3 and a SUB 650 using an OKYO TX-SR508 Receiver. I can't set it up correctly. When I played music I've heard a lot of bass, I think there are some high...


The TX has speaker setup and test tones for setting the balance and distance with test tones and proving the hardware works. If that all works the difference is probably external or settings.

What is different between the music source(s) audio and the HD movie source(s) audio? Ask yourself, how would a sub make high frequencies go missing? It can't.


Your other speakers are responsible for conveying the high frequencies.

Bought a LG Blu ray DVD Home theater system last weekend and set up with LG lcd tv and has been working fine till today. We had the radio on and I turned the TV on and the two rear speakers do not work...


Hello,
In a surround sound system, the correct way to listen to music is in stereo mode which will play out of your left and right channels and your subwoofer. When viewing a movie with surround sound, then you should use your rear speakers. The key element to remember is that rear speakers are only intended to play your sound effects, and will not play full range audio. Thats what your fronts and center are for. If you simply want to override this, than you will need to select the direct sound field on your receiver and than it will send full range audio to all speakers connected. Most likely, its not going to sound that good. If you dont know what each sound field does, here is a list and function of the most commonly used ones.
Stereo-Front Left and Right speakers including subwoofer
Dolby Digital or PLII Movie-these are the bost options for your surround sound
Direct-All speakers connected get full range signal
Good Luck

My rear and center speakers suddenly quit working. No sound


try a different source. if there is output on all speakers in test mode, then the amps are good but the source or source switching may have a problem.

I have a sub maybe 12 years old s/n 503137 When theres music playing on a movie,the sub just rumbles on and even when I turn the volume knob to zero,the sub still is working.Very frustrated.can you suggest...


unfortunately sound like your sub has an internal short. this continuous output is a sign of a defective amplifier within the subwoofer cabinet.

recommendation is to either have the sub repaired or if if its more feasible replaced.

Wharfdale moviestar 70 speekers and sub


i have the same moviestars 70+ plus a yamaha rx-v750 put the crossover on the sub to maximum (left knob) volume (right knob) about 2/3 clockwise. change the crossover on the yamaha to anywhere from 80-120 ( the 120 will put more bass to the sub) if your yamaha has sub level/volume control set it higher, also if it has LFE/sub out set it to sub only.
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.
