First of all, hello to all here-would appreciate help putting together this system. This past weekend I purchased some stereo equipment from a garage sale--- everything had been disconected-I bought it for $150.I have these:
Denon--dra 335r tuner-----adcom gfa 545 amp--adcom g f 6 spkr selector Sony cdp cx235 (cd player) ------carver tfm 6cb amp--- I also have a ton of wires that came with it,connectors---Im just worried about maybe sparking up and damaging a piece---I hope someone can help me with this,again thanks to whoever takes the time to help me.Also could it be possible to hook up a surround sound system with this-- I have a kenwood surround system I bought about 6 years ago---Thank you
Well it should be like this...Your amp is prologic which means that it has 5+1 outputs (sub out may be for active sub).Connect your speakers on specific output for each one (center,front left,front right,rear left,rear right and sub).Other devices,CD,tuner...connect to the amp with signal RCA-RCA cabels.On the back of the amp you have all marked inputs.You wasn't specific what do you want to hook?!If you want to hook this "new" to kenwood connect rec out of it to aux in on kenwood.If oposite kenwood rec out to "new" aux in.Hope that this is what you need

Looks like the capacitors on the amp are going.
If you hear a hummm sound when you turn it on without anything playing on it, then the capacitors are to blame for sure -> Time to replace the capacitors.
In a surround sound system, the correct way to listen to music is in stereo mode which will play out of your left and right channels and your subwoofer. When viewing a movie with surround sound, then you should use your rear speakers. The key element to remember is that rear speakers are only intended to play your sound effects, and will not play full range audio. Thats what your fronts and center are for. If you simply want to override this, than you will need to select the direct sound field on your receiver and than it will send full range audio to all speakers connected. Most likely, its not going to sound that good. If you dont know what each sound field does, here is a list and function of the most commonly used ones.
Stereo-Front Left and Right speakers including subwoofer
Dolby Digital or PLII Movie-these are the bost options for your surround sound
Direct-All speakers connected get full range signal
RX-V365 doesn't support sound over HDMI. It can switch the video+audio from HDMI in to HDMI out, but can't play the sound through the speakers. You need to connect the audio separately via optical or coax digital cable.
You should be able to use any of the "bookshelf" speakers to replace the Front Left/Right and Rear Left/Right. I would go ahead and get a dedicated Center speaker. I bought a Pioneer center speaker and a pair of KLH 3-way bookshelf speakers at Radio Shack at low prices. I also bought a pair of Insignia 3-way bookshelf speakers. I put this all together with a Durabrand Home Theature system (dumping the satellite speakers). There is better range and a much fuller tone with these speakers versus the originals. Even if you hadn't lost the speakers, I would recommend this as a good upgrade.
Hope that helped.
Try disconnecting the speaker that you added. If the sound comes back, then you're ok. Just don't add any more speakers. If not, then it's possible the amp is blown.
Too many speakers connected together to one output can cause an overload and either blow a fuse or trigger the protection circuitry. If the protection is triggered or blows a fuse with all speakers disconnected, then your amp is shot.
Hopefully, that's not the case. Try disconnecting all the speakers and see what happens. If you still get the error, then the amp is gone.
Hope this helps, and please rate my advice.
Thank you, and good luck!!
