Hello I have another question but this is containing my back up surround sound receiver til I can find a Sony receiver that I like. Ok this receiver is a AV receiver model ht-r420 onkyo surround sound...


Subwoofer sockets
The HTR-420 has only a single subwoofer output. It is the socket on the lower left corner. The other subwoofer socket is part of the multi-channel input.

Because of the age of the 420, it comes from a time when optical and coax connections were not so common and DVD players had 6x phono/RCA sockets to send out the surround signal in analogue format. The multichannel input is for sending a signal in to the amp, and not for getting a signal out. That's why the sub doesn't get a signal from that socket. Use the proper subwoofer out. That's what it is there for.

Speakers A+B
The 420 was designed to run Speakers A+B together if required. However, you must observe the minimum impedance loading if you connect up two sets of front speakers and run them simultaneously.

The minimum Impedance for each set of front speakers is 8 Ohms. If you're recycling old surround speakers from a Home-Theater-in-a-Box system, or the speakers have no labels for impedance on the backs then you can be fairly sure they are not 8 Ohm. That could be the problem.

How do i hook up mt audio speakers to my tv for surround sound? klh 403


Hi,
If I understand correctly form your question,you can not hook them unless your TV has 5.1 surround sound amplifier built in...Does it ? I doubt so..
in order to get a surround sound from your TV you need a 5.1 /7.1 DVD/Receiver and you can connect your TV to listen it thru Receiver ..Here is how you can do it..

** connect "Audio Output " as either :"2xRCA jacks"or "Optic cable output" or "HDMI "connector " of your TV ,
** to "RCA input jacks " or "Optic Cable input"
or if you have "HDMI input" of your DVD/ Receiver
** than just switch to respective mode on
Receiver corresponding the connector you have used on the back of Receiver ..

There you go..your Tv sound are on the
DVD/receiver as SURROUNDING SOUND .
By this means ,whatever you watch on the TV
will come thru your
Receiver

Hope this helps!..if more help requires pls let me know.
Take care and please

You're going to surround yourself with a smoke effect if you insist on presenting too low an impedance load to the amp. Add the speakers in series if you must add them at all.

I imagine if you look really close at the back it might say what the minimum impedance is.

Where do you hook up the external speakers?


Most common external speaker hook ups are RCA jack type or if it is an older unit it may have screw terminals. Most are clustered together and are marked clearly L or R channels and if it is a surround sound unit, it will have markings for front L, front right, rear L, rear R and center for 5.1; add two more channels for 7.1. These are located on the rear of the unit.
Hope this helps.

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.

Hook up wireless speakers


I'm assuming the wireless speakers you have utilize an RCA jack to connect to the receiver.

Solution:

The good news is yes, you can use them on your receiver. The bad news is that the only output on your receiver is "VIDEO OUT" so whatever you want to watch or hear on the wireless speakers must be connected to the "VIDEO INPUT".

If the wireless speaker module uses speaker wire to connect to a receiver you will simply tap into the surround thumb clip speaker jacks.

I will add that wireless speakers tend to be disappointing when used in home theater.
