    You will need at least an amp if there is not one built in to the CD Decks. But make sure you get one to match the speakers.
    Ask in the audio shop they should know about the maximum, rms, and peak power stuff etc.
    Mismatched speakers and amp will cause problems. Either the speakers will be overdriven by a big amp when you turn the volume up, or the speakers will put too much demand on the amp and could damage the amps power output stage. It is important.

    Hope this helps.

Trying to hook up speakers to Pyle Pro PD1000 stereo receiver w/built-in DVD/CD player. I believe that I have speaker wires hooked up correctly but when I play CD no sound. I can actually hearing sounds...

I went thru user manual..there is no special way of wiring speakers..
pls check carefully the speaker connections again and the "speaker selector" too..
what about "MUTE" button ? it should be "OFF" ...
and try to test it on FM radio first ..

I have a new set up and i need a step by step instruction on how to set up the mixer to the amp and the decks to the mixer/amp

if this is a dj type set up, the mixer should have a main output (RCA or XLR), that is what you connect to the input on the amp, each deck should have RCA outputs, depending on if they are turntables or cd players, plug the turntables into the phono channel inputs on the mixer and if they are cd players, plug them into the line inputs on the mixer

I plugged in the CD Player Out into the Phono In jack on the back of my Receiver Yamaha RX V382 and turned up the volume to 1/3 at what point I heard a bang out from one of my loudspeakers. From that...

The first thing I can say is that the CD player should not have been connected to the phono jacks as this is for a record player, therefore you amplified the CD player output greater than what it should have been!
Next a damaged loudspeaker could cause problems to the amp. A simple test is to connect each speaker (disconected from the amp) for a second to 1.5 volt battery. You should hear a pop sound from each of the speakers and make certian that each unit inside the speaker pops too. If the speakers are 8 ohm set that switch at 8. Never connect 6 ohm speakers with it at 8! Check the cables are good and are not shorting out.
If I was you I would have a look inside the unit and have a look at the semi-conductors on the heat sink. You might see damage! If they are transistors you can put an ohm meter on the transistor terminals (B,C,E) (amp power off). If any act like you have just touch the test probes together, you have a shorted part and the reason it shuts down.

I have a kenwood stereo integrated amplifier KA 791 and the dual cassete KXw892, niether will come on. when plugged in the standby light only comes on. the reciever and cd player components come on fine?...

That system came with the kt591 tunner in a bundle which consisted of what you call the Kenwood Spectrum 700 rack system, you had to plug the tuner into the wall and then plug the amp into the tunner if you didnt , when you turn the amp on you just get a relay clicking noise and nothing turned on.

New receiver....old CD, record and tape players

Most new recievers don't have a "phono" input. If your record player is an older kind without a built in preamp, you will need to purchase a Phono pre-amp (about $25) and then you can use any input you wish.

Audio selector does not mute unselected inputs

There is a matrix switching IC on the circuit board that switches and routes the sources. This IC (for the audio) may be damaged, or it is not being properly commanded by the uPC controler. You will have to send the reciever to a qualified service tech to have this verified. Troubleshooting this can get involved if the fault is more than just the matrix IC.
