Question about Yamaha HTR-5830 Receiver

1 Answer

Subwoofer volume I can't increase the subwoofer volume above 0. I cannot increase the front speakers either. I'm sure I've adjusted something that has made this occur. I used to be able to. The speaker is set to subwoofer or both but not front.

How come i can only adjust the volume levels on the center, surround sound left and right, and the sub, down but not up? is 0 max volume?


Some equipment use 0dB as the reference, and you can choose to decrease the volume from that point. If you need to "increase" beyond 0dB, you need to reduce volume on the main speakers so the volume is finally balanced between all speakers.

I have the following setup: AV Receiver: Pioneer


Very common problem with today's receivers. Receivers made today don't have a true preamp section in the amplifier and do not amplify the sound to the extent of an older receiver. I have large 15" front speakers on my system, and have stuck with my 15 year old receiver just because I know that a new receiver will not have the power to drive them well. Many of the newer receivers need to be turned up to 50-60% before you can even hear anything from the speakers.

I have the Subwoofer plugged into the output and have it turned ON but it's still not working!


It only drives a self-powerd sub.

The manual...

Page 17:

Setting the Subwoofer Information


Register whether you have connected a subwoofer or not.

Before you start, remember....

• There is a time limit in doing the following steps. If the setting is canceled before you finish, start from step 1 again.

On the front panel ONLY:

1. Press SETTING repeatedly until "SUBWOOFER" appears on the display.

The display changes to show the current setting.

2. Press CONTROL UP / DOWN to select "YES" or "NO."

• Each time you press the button, the display alternates between "YES" and "NO."

YES: Select this when a subwoofer is connected.

NO: Select this when no subwoofer is used.

Note:

You cannot use SUBWOOFER OUT ON/OFF on the front panel (see page 14) and adjust the subwoofer output level (see below) when "SUBWOOFER" is set to "NO."


Then continue with setting its relative level and other things.

Hi! I have a Pioneer VSX - 415, but get the message "Overload" as soon as I turn the volume up just a little. What can I do?? Eyvind


There are several things you can do, but taking the simplest things first into consideration.

Wiring. If you have any loose speaker terminal connections at either end, or any stray strand wire near the receiver chassis it can cause this problem. It's likely that this is actually NOT the case in your particular situation as it appears to be volume control related, but this condition will also cause an overload message as well.

Speakers...lack of efficiency/sensitivity, high or otherwise unstable Ohm rating will require more power. Ohm ratings are based on a nominal impedance (resistance) of a specified input voltage by industry standards, and can vary considerably with signal frequency. Higher impedance occurs as input frequency is decreased...more on this later.

System setup. How many speakers are connected? Each terminal is designed for one channel connection. If you have multiple speakers, i.e.; spliced in series such as with separate enclosures that have multiple drivers, this increases the resistance and power consumption dramatically.

After the above considerations are addressed and resolved but you are still experiencing the problem, do one or all of the following;

Check your audio configuration. If your system has an equalizer, loudness control or "bass boost", turn them off. More bass requires more power from the amplifier, thus can be a cause of the overload you are experiencing.

Adjust your crossover. If you are using an active subwoofer, increase the crossover frequency point in the speaker setup menu of the receiver. You may or may not have to set your other speakers' setting to "small" to enable the digital crossover feature, but setting them to small is preferred in your case. This will allow the subwoofer (if an active one) to handle a broader spectrum of the bass frequencies, rather than the speakers that are being powered by the receivers' amplifier that is currently being overloaded. It will also improve the sound quality. You however, do not have to have connected nor use a subwoofer to do this type of setup, simply increasing the crossover point will omit some of the lower frequencies that are putting higher demand on the amplifier. Alternatively, you may also increase the crossover frequency at the source material, such as your CD or other player instead of in the receiver.

The receiver works ok until the vol is reduced and the right front channel drops out. Increasing the vol usually picks up the dead speaker but it drops out again when the vol is reduced. I've tried...


Make sure the audio level on the left and right channels are balanced. Check the menu for audio levels to adjust and make sure they are not maladjusted. If all levels are adjusted properly then the volume control or volume control circuity may be at fault.

Rear speakers are dead, never got them to work. Changed front to back and rears work so speakers and wireing are good. Is it possible that because I did not hook up a center speaker this is the problem?


if its a 5.1 channels it means 2 front speakers,2 rear speakers or either the center speaker or the subwoofer.try to hook up either center speaker or subwoofer.

Can I use front preouts for subwoofer?


First, you have to have a self-powered subwoofer (or two) with this reciver. That means the sub has its own amplifier. These are usually capable of accepting either Line Level (RCA) input or direct L and R amplifier channel speaker wires from your receiver from which it will react only to frequencies in its range. It doesn't actually use any if the power from your receiver's amp.

That is why you can extend your front speakers from the sub. Again, understand this - it is not playing any part in amplifying them. The amps in your receiver are just passing through it.

Setting your speaker 'Type' definition to Large will tell your receiver that they are capable of real bass (as opposed to small satellites) but won't necessarily steal anything from the subs. Set your LFE/Bass Out setting to Both if your front speakers are capable of handling real bass. Why would you want to deny them bass if they can handle it?

This part is confusing "If I can get the sub working on taking the lows out of the front speakers if I set them to large on the receiver then that is one thing less to send to the other sub on the LFE channel". The crossover feature allows you to define what bass goes to the sub. You would use the various points to smooth out the transition between your sub and the rest. Your quote of 47hz spec for something doesn't suggest your other speakers are great bass reproducers. One needs to see the +- db spec with less than x% distortion for that number make any sense.

Your receiver has two RCA Subwoofer Outputs but I'm sure they get the exact same level. If you're having trouble matching two different subs doesn't at least one of them have an adjustment for volume? Or maybe you could use physical positioning to adjust their comparative volume.

Subwoofer does not kick in during stereo mode with front speakers


There should be an adjustment in setup that for 2 channel sources, you may have to enable the subwoofer output. Or alternatively, if the subwoofer output for 2 channel sources is in fact enabled, then increase the crossover frequency for the sub.

I'm not sure how to set up my LG HT762TZ home theatre system up properly. I have connected everything and made sure it is working properly, but i am not sure where to put the speakers and which way to put...


The rear speakers are meant to be placed at the rear preferrably overhead or at the bottom behind your listening area. Both speakers should be facing the sides. You can place your subwoofer anywhere as its sound is non directional. Don't forget to adjust its volume properly, the rear should not overwhilme the front/center sound. Happy Listening
