Ever computer speaker has a cord for connecting it to the pc. in most cases just a single cord does the trick (you do not need the out 2 lead to use it) unless it is a sophisticated speaker such as one for studios.
good luck

When i turn My Solara DSC VHF radio on it no longer beeps . I cannot hear any squelch or pick up any channels. Is this my speaker that has gone.


To test a speaker, you'll need either a digital multimeter or an analog multimeter that can read measurements of resistance (Ohms)
First isolate the speaker from the amplifier (meaning, remove the wires attached to the speaker terminals).
Set the meter to Ohms (Omega symbol).
Take the meter test leads and place each one on the speaker terminal (make sure the test leads do not touch each other)- there is no polarity to this test so it doesn't matter which test lead goes where on the speaker terminals
For an 8-Ohm rated speaker, you should get a reading of about 6-7 Ohms (approximately 15% of the speaker rating)
For a 4-Ohm speaker, around 2-3 Ohms
and for a 16-Ohm speaker, about 8-Ohms
If you can an infinite reading (make sure the test leads are not touching each other) other wise, if the test leads are not touching and you get an infinite reading, there is a short in the voice coil; speaker is defective.
OL reading on the DMM, or O Ohm resistance on analog meter, broken wire connection inside the coil= open voice coil and is defective.
If you get the proper reading on your speaker, the problem IS NOT with the speaker

No woofer sound from my K3000FX. Verified all cables and settings correct- but sound only comes from tweeter. What could it be?


Step 1:

Hate to say it, but possibly a blown speaker. To check this, do the following -


Step 2:

Insert headphones into jack to verify for sound there.

Step 3:

Unplug unit and open rear panel to reveal speakers.

Step 4:

Remove leads from woofer.

Step 5:

Using a multimeter, set to OHM (horseshoe) to lowest setting.

Step 6:

Apply red(+) and black(-) to speaker leads. Meter should read at least 4-8 ohms of resistance.

Step 7:

If no reading, then voice coil is blown.

Step 8:

If no meter available to use, the use a 9 volt battery by applying direct connection to speaker leads in an off-and-on fashion - You should hear a "click" sound come from speaker. If no "click," then speaker is blown.

Step 9:

If click is heard, and resistance on meter is correct, then the amp circuitry leading to the woofer may be blown = repair needed.

I have no sound from one channel. I have swapped speaker leads (sound just swops with the speaker). I have taken lead out of CD player and touched ends of leads for "earth hum". Only get hum on...


If the sound stays with the speaker, then the problem is with the speaker not the receiver (unless I misunderstand). You state that changing the speakers that the sound stays with the speaker. This means that both channels are producing sound, it is the speaker which is defective. You can verify this by using a 9V battery. Quickly touch the leads from the speakers to the battery. You should hear a pop or click. If the speaker is defecive, you won't hear anything.

Let us know what happens.

I cannot find the right way to hook my TS-W304C Subwolfers up to a mono channel amp.


what amp? the speaker wiring depends on the ohmage rating of the amp. if the amp is 2 ohm stable, then you can hook 2 TS-W304C's up to it, both positive leads from the speakers attached to the amp positive, and both negative speaker leads connected to amp negative. this is called parallel wiring, and it reduces the ohmage (resistance) down to 2 ohms. your speakers are 4 ohms, and 2x4 ohm speakers in parallel makes it equal 2 ohms. if your amp is only 4 ohm stable, then you will only be able to hook up one of your speakers to it.

Have clarion cz200 receiver hooked it up it powers up and everything just fine but no audio...checked everything and it seems fine but no audio am i missing something? its in a 1981 chevrolet c10 pick up


With this particular unit you have a Tele mute which is cell phone related to mute volume when your cell phone rings if this is grounded then you have a problem.

1) Verify that the speakers of the vehicle are correctly hooked up , you can test your speakers by taking a 9 volt battery and touching the positive and negative leads of the speaker wires (make sure they are disconnected for radio) you should hear a click.

2) Take a volt/ohm meter set it to ohms touch the leads together this is continuity. Next touch the wire leading to the speaker to be tested and place the other lead of the meter to the bare metal of truck. If the needle pegs all the way over you have a shorted wire.

3) If using a seperate amp to power the speakers you need to insure that all connection to the amp are made properly and grounds are correct.

here is a link to clarions website to provide a troubleshooting manual.
http://www.clarion.com/us/en/MungoBlobs/341/106/CZ200_EN.pdf

One other thing to check is the center channel balance as if it is biased you need to adjust it.

There are only a few simple things that can cause no audio output
1) Volume not correct
2) Audio output connections incorrect
3) Speaker wires are bad
4) damaged speakers
5) tele mute is grounded
6)Speaker wires insulation is cut and grounding out or is not making a good connection
7) worst case Radio is defective ( it happens)

Is there a wiring diagram for the nikkai EAPA450 Amp


Hi, if you still need a photocopy of instructions email me mail@srands.co.uk

If you want instructions in brief this involves POWER CONNECTIONS, PHONO LEAD & SPEAKER CONNECTIONS:

POWER (At the same time when routing these wires, I would connect the PHONO LEADS from the car cd player to the amp, if your car cd player only has 1 preout (1red & 1 white) then you will need two phono splitters, a female to 2 males. Phono leads carry the unamplified sound from cd player to the amp):
~ Permanent 12V+ (Thick lead that is fused direct from battery all the way to the amp, wire must be 20a to 30a +, hence 1cm diameter wire, known as AWG8, Maplin sell cheaper kits then most)
~ Amp REMOTE (A thin insulated cable (5a is OK) from car cd player amp remote wire, this turns the amp on when the cd player is on, if your car doesn't have an amp remote wire, suggest nearest ignition supply or seperate switch that you turn on when you want to turn on the amp)
~ GrouND 12V- (Insulated lead (20a to 30a) to nearest part of unpainted car chassis such as interior panel screw hole, instead of an insulated cable all the way from the batery, this is common practise.

SPEAKER:
Each speaker has a - negative & + positive, these must connected correctly. The amp has 4 channel, 2 channel labeled as front, 2 channels labeled as rear. Using speaker wire, connect cable from amp to speakers. Note: Ensure the speakers being connected only receive sound from the amp (Not cd player as well, as would damage players or at the very least impair sound)
The amp has a feature called bridgeable this means a sub 8" or 10" sub can be powered by 'bridging' two channels. For example there are 2 ways to bridge power a Sub on the NIKKAI EAPA450:
i) Sub speaker wire positive + to channel RL and Sub speaker wire negative - to channel RR.
OR
ii) Sub speaker wire positive + to channel FL and Sub speaker wire negative - to channel FR.

Switches:
~ Bass boost, meant to be on for a channel if using sub, otherwise off.
~ X-over mode adjust hi/lo frequencies, only work if both x-over switches are on! Then adjust switch frequency knob, until it sounds right.
~ Gain (Volume knob) adjust volume knob up or down, until it sounds right!

NOTE:
You will need patience! many hand tools and parts such as: Wiring kit, fuse holder 20a/30a, Phono leads, speaker cable, Fork/ring connectors, wire strippers, wire cutters, set of screw drivers, also ueful to have zip ties to tdy excess cable and 'P' cable clips to tidy speaker wire to shelf, etc.

OK

Any more questions just email me mail@srands.co.uk

How to wire 2 opti1533d by lanzar with the optidrive 2000d amp? how do i wire them if i put 1 amp on each sub


your speakers are 1 ohm per voice coil, dual oice coil. your amp is no lower than 2 ohms stable mono.

the proper way to wire this so that you do not burn out the amp is to run the 2 vioce coils in series. run the positive lead from the amp into the positive lead of one of the voice coils, then run a jumper wire from the same voice coil's negative lead to the same speaker's 2nd voice coil's positive input. then run from the 2nd voice coil's negative back to the amplifier's negative speaker lead.


you will be running for each speaker/amplifier set: amp + to terminal set 1 +, terminal set 1 - to terminal set 2 +, then terminal set 2 - to amp -

I just bot Pioneer speaker CH26861...4 wires to 2 leads...


I would tie both + from the speakers to the radio, and both - as well. This will give an equal amount of power to both speakers and reduce the chance of blowing a speaker. As for +&- on the speakers, It is usually marked on the black piece right by the terminals. As little power as you are putting to the speakers, it doesn't really matter which way you hook them up, as long as they are both hooked up the same.

How to wire a stereo system


Connect the 2 gage to the battery thru at least s 50 amp fuse, then connect the capacitor in line before the amps. Then run the 2 gage to a connector/splitter block and run 4 gage leads to each amp. You also will need at least 4 gage ground leads from each amp to a body grounded bolt or screw. You need to run a quality set of speaker leads from the head unit to the amps. The speakers will need separate leads from the amp to each speaker.You will need to try some different combinations to get the sound and bass you want. You want to be able to fade from front to rear and control everything thru the head unit.
Use a hole saw to cut a 2 to 3 inch diameter hole in the side of the speaker box for a port to get a better punch from the sub.
Hope this helps some....
