Had the same problem with KLH E-10D Preamped Subwoofer. Afte brief research, I found the problem was with my Pioneer VSX-D509S reciever settings, not the subwoofer. If you have the same reciever, you can go to the pioneer website to download specific model owner's manuals.

Select your Pioneer reciever model and it will give you an option to download the pdf manual. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Hi I have a Yamaha yht 292 surround sound system

As per HTR-6230 specifications (http://www.yamaha.com/yec/products/productdetail.html?CNTID=5028494&CTID=5000400&ATRID=1020&DETYP=ATTRIBUTE) the HDMI function is only "audio-passthru", which means your receiver is not able to get the audio from HDMI cable, it can only pass it forward to TV. You would need a receiver with "HDMI switch" to be able to listen to audio via HDMI cable. You can find such receiver by looking if it supports TrueHD audio (which can be transferred ONLY via HDMI cable).

With your current receiver, you can connect it to the Blue-ray player via Optical SPDIF cable. I have checked the specs and both receiver and BD player supports optical connection.

Got a sony to and surround sound system works fine but when I want to screen mirror my phone to tv I have to turn surround sound system of to get volume? Please help


Assuming that the TV is the device that is recognizing the phone you may have to route your spdif (optical out) via optical cable to the back of your surround amplifier as a separate input to the surround system. You'll be able to select this audio through the surround receivers remote. Just note what the Optical input was named on the back of the surround receiver. The reason you have to do this is that the 'Smart' Tv is what is recognizing the phone's bluetooth or DLNA address so the video and audio are going to the tv. The only way the surround can play the audio is via the TV's optical output. Optical cables are really cheap on Amazon.com. This one is $6 and will work flawlessly if the surround receiver is less than 6 feet away. http://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-Digital-Optical-Audio-Toslink/dp/B001TH7GSW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1425292532&sr=8-1&keywords=Spdif+cable

Hi how do I get surround sound coming from my tv


A Samsung home theatre system can make watching movies at home like going to the theater. Proper setup is essential to get the full benefit of the Samsung system, which is available in 5.1 and 7.1 channel surround sound configurations.
Typically the final step in setting up any home theater is connecting your TV to your system.
Like most home theatre systems, your Samsung home theater receiver will allow you to plug all of your components into it, meaning you only have to run a few cables to connect your television to your system.
Make sure your playback devices are properly connected to your receiver.
Whatever playback devices you use, make sure they are plugged into the appropriate inputs on your receiver.
DVD and Blu-ray players, satellite boxes and cable boxes should all be plugged into video inputs, and CD players should be plugged into audio inputs.
Your receiver will have labels on the back panel indicating into which input you should plug your devices.

Connect the video out to your TV's video input. Make sure you use the correct cable to make the connection. For newer receivers, the connection will likely be either HDMI or component.
If your receiver has an HDMI output, use an HDMI cable to connect the receiver to the HDMI input on your TV.
If your receiver uses a component output, use a component cable to connect your receiver to the component input on your TV.


Connect the audio output of your TV to one of the audio inputs on your Samsung receiver if you want to output your television's audio through your home theatre system.
Most recent TVs will either use an optical cable or a digital coaxial cable to connect to the receiver, allowing you 5.1 channel surround from your television.
If you have an older set, you will likely have to use standard RCA cables.


Turn on your receiver and press the "Setup/Menu" button on your receiver's remote.
When "Input" appears on the display, press the right arrow key on your remote to select TV from the list.


After selecting TV, press the up or down arrow keys on your remote to select the audio input jack into which you have plugged your TV's audio cable.
Press the "Exit" button on your remote to exit the setup menu and lock in the settings.

If you're not an electronics junkie, hooking up your surround sound can seem daunting.
There are so many wires and settings that it's understandable why some people might rather pay someone else to do it for them.
But you can do it yourself as long as you make sure the speakers are positioned correctly; the wires are not only plugged in all the way, but plugged into the right places; and the settings on your television and amplifier are set up correctly.

Check to make sure your surround-sound speakers are correctly installed.
Locate the test function on your surround-sound remote control or amplifier panel to do this.
You will know your speakers are hooked up if sound comes out of each speaker during the test.
Make sure your audio cables are hooked up properly.
Make sure the audio cables running from your television to your amplifier are plugged in correctly. The red and white wires should be plugged into the "Audio Out" spot on the back of your television.
Those same red and white audio wires should be plugged into one of the "Audio Input" spaces on the back of your amplifier.

Turn on your television.
Locate the "Menu" button on either your television remote or your television set.
Scroll through your options until you find "Audio Mode" or a similar naming convention.
Select it.
Scroll through your options until you find "Digital Audio Out," or a similar naming convention. Choose it.
Scroll through your options until you find "Dolby Digital Out." Select that option.
Power your surround-sound system on.
Make sure you have the correct audio input selected.
After the correct audio input is selected, make sure you actually have the Dolby Digital aspect of your surround sound system turned on.
The default for most surround-sound systems is the standard two-channel, stereo output.

I have background sound on my TEAC HTX1800 DVD player, but I can't hear the people talking. Please help?! Regards /Hester


Chances are you are playing movies coded for Dolby Digital Surround. Depending on what kind of receiver your DVD player is plugged into, the receiver may not have the Center channel operating or turned up. Most all dialog comes from the center channel of a surround sound system. The receiver usually has a separate output for a center channel speaker, and a separate volume control as well. This will adjust the dialog volume up.
If you are not using a receiver, or plugged directly into the TV, check the audio settings on the TV. They may not be set up for the surround, hence why you are missing the dialog. Good Luck

I cant figure out how to get my playstations 3's audio to play through my koss surround sound


Hook your video source up to the display (TV), and run your audio cables to an input on your surround sound receiver. Note which input the audio cables are hooked up to and set the surround sound receiver to that channel on the front of the receiver. For example, if you hook up the audio inputs to "AUX" in, then make sure you select "AUX" on the front of the receiver. If you hook up the audio input to "DVD" on rear of receiver, make sure you select "DVD" on the front of the receiver. The connections on the rear of the receiver have to match the selection on the front of the receiver. Make sure that the cables are hooked up to "INPUT" on the surround sound receiver. It doesn't matter how the inputs are labeled (DVD, AUX, etc.) they all do the same thing. Check volume and mute controls on receiver as well. I know it sounds trivial, but sometimes it's the little things that get overlooked and cause problems. I hope this helps and good luck.

Sound Problems with HD TV


This seems to be a problem that has to do with your HDMI audio output.
First check in your TV setting if audio out is selected on your correct HDMI port. Than check if your receiver is able to receive audio via HDMI (i assume you used the HDMI connection). Some receivers have HDMI IN connections but are not able to receive audio on it, the latest receivers/sets do have this feature. If your receiver doesnot support audio IN via HDMI you can only do one thing, connect the stereo audio-out of your TV to an AUX IN connection on your receiver.

Sound Quality


Preferential Quality Connections in order of higher quality are: 1st>HDMI, 2nd>DVI, 3rd>Component/S-Video, 4th>Composite Video. Make sure you only use the surround setting on 1 of the 2 components, which ever is of better quality. If you use them both it WILL sound like mud. (older receiver-newer tv>probably tv) but you must connect all tv audio channel outputs to receiver. (newer receiver-older tv>receiver would be better)
Receivers also tend to have more wattage to drive larger speaker loads than most TVs. The key is to turn off the surround and SRS functions on the TV if you use the surround decoders on the receiver. Either way you use it, make sure you use the set-up feature to balance the outputs of the various channels for either source (the levels of the two will probably be very different).

Surround sound


It must be about the sound quality need of your amplifier. The sound processor simply needs to get clear signals from sources such as fm/am receiver, dvd/cd players etc. in order to manage'em to give you the optimum surround sound. If the fm receiver has an "FM MUTE" option, I recommend that you turn it on. By doing so, you'll receive only good quality fm stations, furthermore your amplifier will let you get surround sound. The second issue you mentioned has its own answer inside. Use a "new" cd player, you can get optical cables, digital coax cables to improve the performance if you like..
