Does your rca cables go to a surrond sound amplifier or directly to the tv. The tv only has two speakers.If the signal is sent to a seperate receiver it must have a lisyen mode then set to 5.1 surround. The digital optic cable should go to receiver first.

Good Luck

How do i connect my amp to my vizio tv there are right and left outputs on tv but only one input on back off amp


Typically you need an preamplifier between your tv and amplifier. you run one optical cable (or coax ) cable from you tv audio output to the preamplifier then you run audio rca cables from preamp outputs to amp inputs (2 for stereo 5 or 7 for surround). the preamp decodes audio and controls volume and surround modes.
If you have a cable box and need just simple setup for watching tv just run rca cables from your cable box audio outs to your amp inputs. you then program your cable remote control to control volume.

Hi i have a krf-v5030d and i am having trouble woking out how to connect it to my panasonic 37'' plasma th37px70b and my sky plus box can you help me please .thanks john


Hi John,

I have the same amplifier, a Sky + HD box, an LCD TV an surround speakers. We wont go into the Wii, PS3 and PC also hooked up. Essentially the best way to go (whatever you connect up) is to split the video and audio signals.

Sky: The Sky box has an audio outputs (left and right channel) found at the back of the box. You get some twin audio cables, plug into the back of the Sky box and the other end into the Kenwood Amp (for example we use Video 1). This means that the sound from Sky can be found on Video 1 on the Amp.

You take the video signal (picture) from Sky using a SCART cable and put into the back of your panasonic TV. This does mean that you can watch a picture without the sound and listen without a picture. The Amp remote controls the sound, the Sky / TV remote controls the picture.

You may need to tinker with some settings on the Amp, for example on the front of the Amp you will find a source button, toggle through the 3 or 4 options to give you the right sound. But essentially that should be it. The same process is used for any other things you want to add, like a DVD player, a games console and so on.

Hope this helps.

Regards, Mohammed

I don't have any instructions so i don't know how to hook up my speakers and the t.v for surround sound i have a carver avr 100


You should be able to online to the manufacturer of your products and download manuals. However, I will try to help.

Connect the sound output cables from your DVD player including, left/right(white/red) as well as the Coax output/input if your DVD and your Carver each have this feature for enhanced sound on certain DVDs, and connect to the matching DVD inputs on your Carver.

Then, connect your DVD video output either by use of your RGB(RED/GREEN/BLUE cables or an S Video cable to your the matching video inputs on your t.v.

On the back of your Carver, you will find outputs for left and right speakers, connect to the left and right speakers with proper wire. Make sure that the 2 conductor wire is connected with the same side(polarity) on all speakers for the best sound quality.

You will also find rear channel left and right outputs on your amp, connect those to your rear right and left speakers.

Connect the center channel speaker to the center channel speaker output on your amp.

If your Amp has a sub-woofer output and you have a subwoofer, make the connections on that as well.

Test all of the speakers with a feature that many amps have on the menu using your remote, simply called test. if all speakers are connected correctly you will be able to hear each one as they are individually tested by the amp. Hope this helps out.

I bought a paramax p-510 I want to setup connect it to my tv, what cable do I need


i have no idea to connect it either. Specially since the AV has only 2 jacks instead of three. I connected the two jack with DVD, and the front 2 speakers work and the sub too, however i have no idea how to make the surround and center speakers work. I have tried various variations, but i think the thing is a fake made for only 20 bucks speakers without much juice.
I might be wrong but this is the first av with only two jacks instead of three, even the cable they provide has three jacks

I have Harmon Kardon AVR 25 ii receivers and I have attached it to Bose 701 front speakers and three other Bose surround speakers and an subwoofer. All the speakers work except for right speaker, I need...


To locate the problem...a) Cable
Test if right cable is ok, by interchanging the rt/left cables.

b) Test Bose right speaker
Connect the Bose right speaker to HK's left channel. Works? Then Bose right speaker is ok.

c) Test HK's right output by connecting the left Bose speaker to HK's right output.
Does not work?

ADCOM GFA7500 problem


I don't have experience with the 7500 but I had a 7000 with multiple bad channels (red light lit). The problem was bad filter capacitors on the amplifier boards. The large black filter caps (two per channel) were leaking on every amp board. Its a relatively easy repair if you can solder.

FYI you'll probably need a set of small hex head drivers to open the unit.

Surround Sound


You must find on your setup menu the word `Surround', it may be `5.1 Surround'. Not `Stereo'(S ?).
