Moving coil burned... you can have it rewinded by an expert, real expert on speakre repairs. if cant find any then i suggest you get it from the manufacturer only or it could goi as far as damaging your amps. You can order the woofer drivers though from yamaha and it is not hard to replace, 8 screws only and not required to oepn the cabinet, the dsisgn is surface mounting.

The speaker on the non-playing side is blown. Disconnect it or the amp will get fried as well. The coil has loosened from its form and is rattling against the speaker frame. If the insullation on the coil wires gets worn enough,it will short against the frame and possibly smoke that amp channel.

    The speaker can be "reconed", but it takes a bit of practice and the correct equipment. Normally reconing will cost anywhere from 30%-75% of the cost of replacing the speaker. The benefit is that the "new" speaker will still match any others you may have. Check your local area for a service shop that provides that service.

Sound is not loud


most yamahas have a setting to lower main speaker volume 10 db, accessed by the remote, or front panel controls in the settings.this is a very small sub, only a 6.5 inch driver and 100w.
sub placement in regard to the seating position is very important in order to get good bass response.

I have a jl 500.1 and a 8w7. The sub is playing but not really it will play sometimes but most of the time i am getting almost nothing. Am i using the wrong settings or a bad connection or blown sub?


Sounds like a bad rca connection. You need both rca jacks to be plugged in from your head unit, both left and right or you will not have full power you'll have half power to your sub/subs. Check your sub with a volt meter and see what it reads. Make sure if your head unit has a sub volume make sure it's turned up. Alot of people don't realize they have a seperate subwoofer volume on there deck and it's set to low, so check that. You could have bad rca cables. If all that is ruled out(best way by trying a different amp) the amp itself might be having problems. Don't think it would be in protect mode either.
Let me know if you have'nt allready.

MY amp is going into clip mode. what is clip mode on an infinity car audio amp?


either your pushing your subs to hard and its creating a backsurge of resistance, or the spider wires are touching the frame causing them to foul out. It honestly sounds like you are trying to run too low of an impedance subwoofer, and your amp infinitys clip to keep from distorting, distortion played through a subwoofer at high volumes is damaging to the subwoofer and the amplifier. reduce your gain, and check your wires, the clipping should stop, a good rule of thumb always have an amplifer that will do rms what your speakers can do peak, so that way you can keep the amp turned up only 1/4 of the way and be pushing your subs at a decent rms volume with 0 distortion.

Lux Audio 5.1 home theater speaker & Yamaha HTR 5540 AMP


configure ur PC (both OS audio and third party sound driver) for surround sounds. control panel- sounds and audio devices - speaker settings - advanced - speker settings. so this done. make sure u select the 6 input channel - the button is on the right edge near the volume knob. near the vol button there are two buttons for selecting input type with up down arrow. from that u can select the input type this will be indicated on the top front indicator. but with the 6 input channel selected all selections are preceeded. if u select stereo mode u will have left/ right audio only.
make sure u connect the input right. connect from computer to 6 channel input. main, surround, center and sub-woofer.  connect the spekers to main (L/R), rear(surround) (L/R), center and sub woofer to terminal marked sub woofer ouput. this done select like i said before the 6 channel button. that should do it.

How do i get the best sound from my infinity 1250w subwoofers


Make sure the ohm's are the same on all your speakers and amp.
You amp watt should be equal or higher then your speakers total amps.
You base box should be completely air tight, and have about 1/2 of the box stuffed with cotton.
Make sure you use a good thick speaker cables to connect from the amp to the speakers.
and finally, make sure your trunk seals tight and wont rattle... cause nothing sounds worse then someone pulling next to you and all you hear is a buzzing sound from the trunk rattling... Also... sell the infinity's and get something like memphis, or panasonics. :P

YAMAHA AV receiver RX-V861 I have the message 'Vol-fix' appearing on Zone 2 and no sound. This was working fine until then


Setting the RX-V861 remote control to operate Zone 2:
  1. Using a ballpoint pen or similar object and press the [CODE SET] button RX-V861 remote control. The[TRANSMIT INDICATOR]on the remote should flash twice.
  2. Using the [NUMERICAL KEY PAD] on the remote and key in 9992, the [TRANSMIT INDICATOR] should flash.
Assigning the receivers internal amp for Zone 2:
  1. Set the remote control selector to [AMP]. (Located to the right of the volume buttons on the Remote.).
  2. Press the [SET MENU]button on the remote control.
  3. Arrow down to Manual Setup and press the Enter button on the remote control.
  4. Arrow to the [SOUND MENU] option and press the [ENTER] button on the remote control.
  5. Arrow to Speaker Set and press the [ENTER] button on the remote control.
  6. Arrow to the EXTRA SP ASSIGN and select ZONE2
  7. Press the [RETURN] button on the remote control to exit out and return to the Manual Setup.
NOTES: There is an option for setting the Maximum Volume and Initial Volume in the Zone Set menu.
  • Max Volume: This is an optional feature but isrecommended to prevent the accidental change in volume levels thatcould damage the speakers and receiver.
  • Initial Volume: This is also a great feature that would seamlessly start the volume level for the second or third zone at the desired level.
We do not recommend using any Speaker Selector boxes to enable more than the recommended number of speakers per terminal.
Controlling Zone 2 using the RX-V861 remote control:
  1. If the Main Zone on the receiver is on, press the [POWER BUTTON]down and while holding that button down press the [PHONO]/[**] button on the remote. The [TRANSMIT INDICATOR] will light up.
  2. You will not be able to use the following buttons on the remote: (Pressing any other button will cause the remote to exit Zone 2 mode. [POWER], [STANDBY], [VOLUME], [MUTE] and the [INPUT SELECTOR] buttons [DVD], [CD], etc.)

Wharfdale moviestar 70 speekers and sub


i have the same moviestars 70+ plus a yamaha rx-v750 put the crossover on the sub to maximum (left knob) volume (right knob) about 2/3 clockwise. change the crossover on the yamaha to anywhere from 80-120 ( the 120 will put more bass to the sub) if your yamaha has sub level/volume control set it higher, also if it has LFE/sub out set it to sub only.
Good luck!

Do you know if my woofer is blown?


well if you hear a rattle sound its probably already blown...and the amp could be drawing too much power if the radio shuts off...make sure all your wiring is correct. also if your car is off and you turn it up it will most likely shut off cause the battery cant handle it. but as for the sub i think its blown. good luck
