Question about Harman Multimedia HK 3390 Receiver

1 Answer

I have my new HK3390 hooked to my legacy Polk monitor 7s. The Ohms and Wattage match pretty well. I have the positive hooked to the positive and negative to the negative. I only get a tiny bit of sound when I turn it up to +10dB. Same for my headphones. The Pre-amp jumpers are in place and down tight. Help?

Never troubleshoot anything with the volume cranked up. The moment you find the mispositioned control you'll damage your speakers. If something isn't audible at half volume there's a problem.

Are the speakers activated?

Check that MUTE is not turned ON.

Make sure you don't have any Tape functions selected without a corresponding device attached and functional.

What orion cobalt sub is good for this amp?

You do not have enough listed for specifics but you do need to match your sub with the amp from an ohm standpoint and a wattage standpoint. I am sure your amp can handle down to 4 ohms but may handle 2 ohms. Find that out and then check on the output wattage of the amp. A lot of people have separate amps for the sub itself and run the system off of another amp. Either way is acceptable.

What are the difference in ohms

Electromagnetic devices have a so called impedance measured in Ohms (Resistance is also measured in Ohms). When you connect two electromagnetic devices they must in some way match. To put it in the simplest terms, the output impedance of one must be equal to the input impedance of the other. The better the matching the better the coupling.
Coupling may not be optimal but they should work.

Need to replace woofer in polk atrium 45. where can i find a decent speaker to fit?

eBay is always a good place to start you can get anything, the problem is replacing the driver in just one will give uneven sound as it would probably be dificult to find one that matches, i would advise replacing both, it will need to handle 160watts max and go down to atleast 75hz the crossover will take care of the high frequency range so this is not as important but it should be bale to handle atleast 8khz (8000hz) and pay close attention the the resistance of the speaker, it will probably be 4 ohms but could be 2 or 8 depending on how its wired, you can check by connecting a multimeter set to 100 or 200 ohms and connecting it to the 2 terminals on the speaker (after its taken out of the cabinet) the meter will read 0.0x where x is the resistance nearest to 2 4 or 8.

I have amplifier 4ohms .i want to match a spaekers to build up onkyo amplifier

The 4 ohms impedance can be matched depending on waht WATTAGE is required by you.
Also the type of speakers that you desire is also important. You can buy 4 ohms speakers or use two 8 ohms speakers in parallel . But the important factor is the choice of your music and the wattage. If there is a use of passive crossover network or active crossover network we need to consider to buy the matching speakers.

I just purchased a yamaha RX-V767 receiver. I have a polk surround sound speaker system 5.1 that have an impededance of 8 ohms. The receiver has an impedece adjustment knob on it. would it be safe to...

No, you don't want to do that. The Ohm output on the amplifier must match the speakers. Run 8 Ohm speakers on 8 Ohm and run all your speakers on the same impedance (Ohms). Your gonna burn your amplifier up if you run different impedances.

I bought a used KDS 17" color monitor, Rad-7,

I agree that the overheat was the supply being too small. Not only the voltage rating is wrong, but I'd bet the amperage is alsotoo low for correct operation. Check this link. I have bought power bricks from them for laptops, monitors, and power tools - all good quality without breaking the bank. They ship pretty quickly as well.

Backup not supported microtek UPC

observe the wattage of the monitor . it may become overload by power supply . observe wattage of UPS . combine the monitor and CPUs wattage . if not matching , then take higher wattage UPS .if you want to start on battery back up , then first on the CPU and then switch on the monitor after 10sec.

Max. wattage for speakers w/ Technics Receiver SA-GX100?

I too have a Technics SA-GX100 and it's rated at 2 x 40W @ 8 Ohms. I have the Technics SB-2840 floor model speakers hooked to it, which are rated at 200W Music Input - 8 ohms. It sounds very nice just to be a 40W receiver.

Which speakers can I use?

You can use any wattage speakers as long as they are not less than the watts from your amp. However you can still use lower wattage speakers as long as you don't turn up the volume full or two loud! Otherwise your damage the speaker.
HOWEVER you must get the ohms matched up right. You must never connect any speaker with a low Ohm to a high rated amp. Or you will blow the output stage transistors or IC.
Most Amps are 8 ohms, so you could connect an 8 or 16 etc, but not a 4 ohm.
