Just to help clarify on this for future viewers:

There is a bank of 4 speaker wire sockets (2 pairs), like this:
[#][X] [#][X]

The # is black and the X is red. Each pair goes to one speaker.

The speaker wiring supplied with the system is copper in color, with two wires joined together. One wire has a black stripe on the clear casing, the other has no stripe. The one with the stripe goes into the black socket and the one without the stripe goes into the red socket.

With the unit facing towards you, lean over it and look at the speaker sockets on the back of the unit. The socket pair on the left goes to the left speaker and the socket pair on the right goes to the right speaker. Remember that this appears "reversed" when the rear of the unit it facing you, so that's why it's easier to do it oriented as I described.

Connect up the speakers and you're good to go. Don't forget to connect the sub woofer! It has a separate black wire with RCA style plugs. You plug it into the white colored socket.

Hi Dave. I guess it would be helpful to know model of the system. Could you send us the model number and make? If I have this information I can get you up and going!

Both left & right socket use the same speaker

The manual I just download from Teac shows two sockets for each speaker. Is this a second-hand model? It's possible that someone has tampered with it, perhaps fitting a headphone socket to the back of the unit with the speakers wired to one plug.

No bass

If you hear a very high pitch hissing sound coming out from one channel then probably your amp final is gone, in that case you will need to work at component level to fix it

I have an older JVC Shelf Unit with the main control unit in the middle and a left and right side speaker that contains a built in subwoofer on each side, lately the Speaker cuts in and out at higher...

It's one of three things things:
First, examine where the speaker wires are plugged into the receiver. Are any of the copper strands touching one another? If so, remove the excess stripped wire and reinsert it. Problem solved.

Test two: bad speaker. to test, swap the speakers (hook the right speaker to the left speaker jacks and the left speaker to the right speaker jacks). If the RIGHT side now cuts out, you have bad speakers.

If the speaker on the LEFT jacks still cuts out, your amplifier is going bad (which could cost between $50-$200 to repair).

Hi Thanks for your help, One year old Sony mini

sir i think ypur unit is ok and run correctly... try to check your speaker maybe your speaker got open or burnt... you can test it by swapping your speaker to another unit or you can test your speaker using multitester...just point your selector at resistance test a speaker has 8ohms reading....

the speaker has a two terminal.. a positive terminal and a negative terminal... your multitester has a two lead.. red lead which is a positive and a black lead which is negative..
measure-speaker-impedance-1.1-800x800.jpg Multimeter probe sockets (NL Graphics) Insert the probes of a digital multimeter in the correct sockets of the multimeter. There may be several different sockets for the probes depending on what parameters you're measuring. Look for the sockets marked "impedance" or displaying the ohm symbol. Different models and brands of multimeters will vary in their labeling, so check your multimeter's manual if you're not certain about which one to use.

  • 2 Select the range for the multimeter. Since you'll be measuring fairly low resistance levels with a speaker, choose a range that will encompass readings in the 2-16 ohm range. It's extremely rare to find speakers that will have an impedance outside of that range.
  • 3 Touch one probe to each of the speaker terminals and check the reading. This will be the impedance of the speaker. Record the measurement, and when you're done, turn off the multimeter to preserve the batteries for the next time you need the multimeter.

    I want to know where the wires from the speakers go into the main system. I don't have a manual

    First connect the right speaker. The wire with the plug goes into the terminal labeled SPEAKERS HIGH FREQ R. The speaker cord with the white stripe goes into the SPEAKERS LOW FREQ R + terminal and the black cord goes into the - terminal. Connect the left speaker in the same manner but to the terminals labeled L. These are at the bottom of the connector block (Jacks labeled R on the left as you look at the back of the unit).

    I hope this helps.

    TEAC - CD-X9 - No sound in left speaker

    the speaker wire itself could be grounding out. look for small knicks in the wire and make sure the plug is not faulty. RCA plugs can go bad which would account for intermitent troubles some times
