If you are wanting bass adjust your amp settings to low pass. if you are wanting a lil bass- a lil treb- adjust your amp to full. and make sure your rca cables are hooked up in the proper spots.

My NAD C350 plays very faintly. when I turn the volume dial to the max position, I can bearly hear the music. I can hear properly from earphones output. Thanks


Take care. First put the volume down complete. Then unplug the head phone and than try to raise the volume. Could be the headphone connector does not switch through correct. Could be the connections between the pre and power amp are not in place or not proper pushed in?
Always take care when working with amplifiers. When switching them on with volume to max, you easy can kill your speakers. Also when disconnecting the headphones on full power kan damage the loudspeakers.

How Loud Can it Go?


I don't know if I ever installed a sound system to any concert fan who didn't ask me this question. So how loud can I safely play my sound system?

If you have a receiver or amplifier that has an analog dial that goes from 7 o'clock to 5 o'clock the majority of units will output maximum volume at around 1 o'clock assuming a line level signal is sent to it (again it varies a lot from piece to piece). Anything higher then that and the unit will send out a distorted signal colloquially referred to as "clipping". Most modern units now use digital volume controls and everyone is different. The only way to detect this distortion is listen to when the music sounds tinny and harsh instead of clean and musical.

If you do not find it is loud enough for your liking you must invest in a more powerful amplifier or higher efficiency speakers; or you will continue to destroy your innocent speakers and blame them for your over driven amplifier.

sounds like you need to turn up your gain and bass. while amp is on and your favourite music playing, turn up the diles on your amp until you get the sound you want one by one.

I have a 200w Paradigm subwoofer that recently started a nasty feed back that sounds like an automatic machine gun. Is it a connetion problem or a something else


Do you have a habbit of turning your woofer up louder than listening to "clean" music? As you turn up the volume almost to the maximum, you should notice when the "clean" sounding music turns to "not clean" sounding music. Also known as "distortion". That "distortion" is actually your amplifiers inability to play louder than that point. When you turn up the volume past the point when the music sounds like it is "unclean" sounding music, your amplifier is pushing instructions to your woofer, but the woofer can't handle all the extra instructions and is damaging your woofer. And hense, over time, you can damage your woofer beyond repair.

If you can't find a loose connection, there are only 2 other possibilities. You wore out your amp. Or, more likely, you wore out your woofer. Or......Please, no......not that.......possibly both. Amps can be sent to the manufaturer for repair, but check craigslist before you spend on repair. I would focus on the woofer possibly being the worn piece. A high end audio shop will gladly take $15-30 from you to test your woofer and amp for you.Just tell them what you hear. They can also check all your connections for you.

Good luck.

My speakers wont work suddenly unless I am using my headphones


Make sure in the volume mixer that it is using the right sound device. You most likely have it set to the wrong device output. When you plugged in the headphones in kinda automatically switches, but to use the speakers again you have to do it manually. Just hook up a cheap av receiver to your computer and use this headphone input instead. a 100$ 5.1 av receiver beats any pc speaker system.

BOSTON ACOUSTICS BA735 volume is LOWER than MAXIMUM LEVEL


OK, a few things here. First of all, what program are you using to listen to music? Some programs have an automatic volume leveling setting. If you're using Windows Media Player, it has one. Next, you should NEVER set any speaker/volume/amplifier knob to Maximum setting if you want to get any life out of your speakers. Speaker ratings are for consistent volume levels at a "clean" power level. When you turn any music source up past 80% you are pushing more distortion through the speakers that they cannot reproduce without self destructing. The human ear cannot hear this, and the volume gain is minimal. Next we'll talk about that your dealing with a combination of power levels compiling into an amplifier that may be taking in more than it can aptly amplify according to it's power multiplier scheme to increase the volume at the speaker level. If you've got everything maxed out, you're probably just pushing it all WAY too hard. All over exerted energy that is not being used productively will end up in generating heat and distortion. Those are your 2 biggest enemies when it comes to anything audio. Distortion tears voice coils and generates disruptive electrical currents, and heat destroys circuitry and components in amplifiers. The times where they jump up in volume, just look at that as borrowed time until they blow. If you want louder, get a better or more powerfully rated set, and still, NEVER turn it up past 80% if you want it to last.

Intermittent problem no sound


Double and triple check your connections. I soldered my connections on a speaker a little while ago and I found out that it only looked soldered and it was alittle loose and would cut out. Also you could check a site out, installdr.com. You should be able to find out the wire colors for you speakers there. Although I don't think that, that will cause a big problem. If you are listening to music at loud volumes, I would also recomend an aftermarket amplifier. It adds so much more that a factory amp can. Just food for thought. Good luck.
