Re: speaker switch box
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.

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.
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).
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.. 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.
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.
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
connecting right speaker.
1.connet the speaker cord with the plug to the speaker high freqright (R) terminal
2. connect the speaker cord with white strip to the speaker low freqright(L) + terminal and its black cord to the -- terminal
do the same for connecting the left speaker to the speaker high freq left (L) and speaker low freq left (L) terminals ok
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.

Please switch off the system from the wall socket. Remove the speaker wires from the rear side of the system. power on the system if it works ,the speakers or the wires are defective.
