Re: wire house speakers
Two ways--first you can open up the unit and use the exsisting wires from the tvs internal speakers or goto radio shack and ask them for a audio jack splitter,you would than connect the wires from the speaker to the splitter then plug the jack into the audio input on the back of the tv.If your thinking youll get more sound from these speakers by doing this it wont work unless you have a surrond sound system.Only an amplifier can boost the output.

you could add 3 more 8 ohm speakers in series / parallel wiring and keep an 8 ohm load to the amp, or
2x 4 ohm speakers in series, or
2x 16 ohm speakers in parallel
The only way to wire a single 4ohm DVC sub to present a 4ohm load is to just connect one voice coil. If you wire the coils in parallel, you get a 2ohm load. If you wire them in series, you get an 8ohm load. But it will work great with just one voice coil. Or if you really want to use both voice coils, and your amp isn't stable at 2ohms, wire the voice coils in series and present an 8ohm load to the amp. It'll work fine, it just won't deliver quite as much power.
1. Even though you have some kind of peak limiting on your mics, the signal might still be peaking somewhere along the audio path and causing distortion. Gain controls might be set too high somewhere along the way.
2. The amp you are using might simply be driving too much power for the speakers to handle.
3. A faulty connection, connector, wire or input could cause distortion of something like distortion which is of course would be more apparent at higher volumes.
4. Equipment placement could be picking up sounds or interference from other sources.
5. If you are able to discern level peaks but they are occasional and not flat out, then a compressor placed in the mic signal path could certainly help - otherwise see # 1 above.
Looking in the manual (link below) I see that this receiver uses 8ohm speakers, check that your speakers are 8 ohms or more. I think that connecting 2 sets of speakers to the same output is the problem as when you connect speakers in parallel (i.e. just twisting both pairs of wires together) you effectively half the impedance. So if 2 sets of speakers of 8ohms are connected this way the result will be 4ohms which is too low and will cause the unit to go into standby. Try removing the additional front speakers & see if the fault persists. If it does then it is likely a fault in the wiring.
If you wire the speakers as a pair in parallel; (For two 4ohms car speakers)
1/R=1/4 + 1/4
R=2 ohms (the resistance value you'll get) (don't even think of trying it!)
R=8 ohms (this mostly fits to home amplifiers, however, they provide 6ohms as well)
I recommend that you use reasonable 8ohms speakers for the home theater amplifier you have. Despite the fact that the impedance value fits to 8ohms when you wire two car speakers as a pair in serial, this type of connection will tire your amp as well as the capacitors of the car speakers. Furthermore, you can get unwanted peak sounds from car speakers.
