SOURCE: Bose amplifier does not work with a 6 speaker selector

your wall speakers may not be connected.... disconnect each speaker from the selector box and test with a small AAA battery to see if they are connected by putting the battery between each speaker's wires , you will hear it crackle ,then gradually connect each wall speaker onto the speaker connector box . If the first set does not work i suggest there may be a problem with your speaker selector box . Good luck

SOURCE: Zone 2 connections

go into your amp settings menu then to speaker settings,set zone 2 on and main on, turn up the volume for zone 2 about half way then connect phono cables from zone 2 pre out to a input on the external amp (eg cd input )
never use the phono input this is for turntables,connect this amp to your speaker switch/selector then to speakers.

hope this helps

How do you connect a peavey 6505+ amp to a marshall 1960a cabinet?


On the back of your 6505 there are two jacks that are labeled speaker outputs. For mono function, use either one of those outputs and run a SPEAKER cable from your amp to one of the input jacks of your 1960a cabinet. I assume it is a 4X12 cabinet. Either input will work. Make sure you match the ohm selector on your 6505 (right next to the output jack, 4/8/or 16 ohms) to the ohm rating on your 1960 cabinet. It is likely labeled on the plate that houses the input jacks. You should be good to go. NOTE: Never turn your amp on unless it is hooked up to a speaker cabinet and never use instrument cable to hook your amp to your speaker cabinet. Bad for a nice tube amp like yours.
Rock on and hope it helps.

Not outputting to all speakers from CD, but does from DVD


Hi,.

With the indulgence of the others...
dfadfab.jpg
If I understand your problem right:
1. CD works only in Speaker A (but not in Speaker B);
2. DVD works on either or both A/B;
3. CD will work if plug into to VCR input but selector must be of another source (not VCR).

A couple of suggestions:
a. pls try doing again the reset as ginko has suggested but make it a bit longer, i.e. unplug it from the mains for a couple of hours;
b. since you have remove most of the wiring, why dont you try switch A & B. make the family room speakers the B while the speaker selector the A;
c. hook the CD (only) using the RCA cables (red/white) nothing else;
d. play any CD music and go through the paces of selecting source, speakers, surround/hall/theater/etc as troylove11 has suggested.

This would be now a simple setup, 1 source (CD) to 1 output/speaker (the family room) via the Denon. Try different settings. If the CD plays normally then, without changing any setting nor powering it off (but with volume level all the way down), remove the family room speaker wiring and replace it with the wires to/from the speaker selector.

the idea is to determine which is the real issue, the Sony, the Denon settings/hardware or the speaker selector.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Hooking up the speaker to an amp, using the rca line out of the amp i have no volume control from the amp knobs, can i hook the speakers up to the amp from the speaker out ?


You should NOT under any circumstances connect an audio input lead to a speaker output jack!
The RCA jacks you are trying to take output from ore "pre fader" which would be solid "line level" and not controlled by volume controls. Tap off the INPUT to the amp... you should be using balanced lines for the interconnects. RCA jacks are unbalanced lines. You can drive several inputs from a line level output of a mixer for example using a splitter cable.

Purchased 2 used sonance sonamp 260 for homewide speaker system (12 pair).line out from receiver into first amp powering first 8 pair.line out from first amp into second amp powers remaining 4pair.only...


I am assuming you are using the standard sonamp 260 not a 260x3
and that when you say you are getting sound on only 1 pair that means only on 1 side (left or right channel only?)

Are using a speaker selector box? you must to regulate the resistance (ohms)

if so first unhook all but on pair of speakers and see if both channels are working.

if they do your problem is in the speaker selector not the amp if no then check to see what the amp level is set to. These are the two small holes on the front right of amp make sure they are set about equal at around half way up.

If that doesn't work flip the RCA cables coming to the amp perhaps you have a bad cable if that doesn't work make sure your receiver (source) is outputing a stereo signal to begin with.

lastly 8 sets of speakers off 1 amp? that's pushing it.even with a high quality Niles or speakercraft selector that controls the resistance going to an amp I wouldn't go past 5 sets.

The right way to do it would be to use 260x3 or a sonance or speakercraft 12 channel amp.

How do I connect my outside speakers to play?


The onkyo should still have a speaker A/B selector in the menu.
Check on the back panel for speaker A/B.
If it has or you decide to use Zone 2 you will need to set the sound programme to "stereo" so the rears and centre do not work.
You can still use a digital source.
You should be able to display the amp's menu on the screen.
Hook up "monitor out" (Yellow) via RCA connector to one of the "A/V inputs" (yellow) on the tv, this will show you a display of the menu and will make it eaiser to navigate.

Add more speaker to dvd player/s-air suround sond system


I have revisted this question and I *think* you are talking about a "speaker selector". A speaker selector is a unit that prevents an amp or receiver from going into safe mode or shutting down.

No Sound


Make sure you plug into the GREEN speaker port on the PC.If using a digital connection,try going back to analog.The difference is almost non-existent,and much less hassle.
