Zone 2 connected to wireless speakers causes crackle in Zone 2 sound

When I connect the wireless speaker amplifier to the "Silent Cinema" headset jack at the front of the Yamaha unit, the wireless speakers become the only source for sound ("Silent Cinema" cuts off the main speakers).  When I connect my wireless speakers that way, the sound is clear; no problems. However, I usually want the music audible from indoors (on the main speakers) as well as outdoors (via the wireless speakers).  The tech support at Yamaha instructed me to connect the wireless speakers to Zone 2 on the back of the unit.  I now have sound where I want it in both places, but the wireless speakers now crackle and pop.  Any one know how to resolve the problem of poor Zone 2 sound?  Thanks!

SOURCE: Zone 2 connections

go into your amp settings menu then to speaker settings,set zone 2 on and main on, turn up the volume for zone 2 about half way then connect phono cables from zone 2 pre out to a input on the external amp (eg cd input )
never use the phono input this is for turntables,connect this amp to your speaker switch/selector then to speakers.

hope this helps

The sound on my Dell W4200 is crackling some times even when the sound is on mute. Sometimes the sound is fine, other times no sound and other times the crackling noise. Any idea what problem may be?


Hi There,
Crackling sound is often an indication of bad connections to the speakers. Are you listening with the built-in speakers or through an external amplifier?
If you are listening through an external amplifier or speakers, check all of the connections to make sure the cables are properly inserted, and wiggle the cables from each end and the middle to see if that reproduces the symptoms. Sometimes a cable can become damaged from being squashed or bent, and it may be as simple as replacing the faulty cable with a new one.
If you are listening with the built-in speakers the situation might be harder to identify and correct. Sometimes it is as simple as nearby wireless devices or radio towers causing interference with the speaker. You can try repositioning wireless devices such as computer routers, cordless landline phones or radios to see if that helps.
However, over time the solder used to connect the internal components can wear and sometimes break the connection. For this type of situation repair is usually the only option. If the warranty of your TV has expired you may have to take it to a local TV service center. Typically a loose solder joint is easy to identify and fix, so the repair bill should not be high.
Please post back with your results.

Crackling is not good. Sounds like it needs to be serviced if all of the connecting cables are in good working order. It can be repaired by Rita's Vintage Audio in WA state. They are expensive but good.

I have a yamaha htr 5890. I would like to hook up


You are probably connected to the pre-out jacks. These are not amplified. Connect them to the B speaker outputs(screw down connectors). If that won't work (and it should), you can connect to the "Presence" speaker connections(spring loaded connections).

Sony HT 6500 receiver...center speaker jack crackles as soon as speaker wire is connected to it. Tried new wire, new speakers...same thing. Tried to reset to factory settings...ONly L and R front speakers...


try to spray contact cleaner into the speaker port itself.. Powered off of course.. let it dry and try again.. this will clean any connectivity issues due to bad contacts.. as far as replacing jacks.. try the suspected "bad" speaker and wiring in another port.. if it works then the speaker and wiring is good and you have to check actual jack in which you were asking and back to auto amplifier circuit or transistors.

Onkyo 506 zone 2 no sound


I believe that you can only get analog signals thru zone 2 (i.e radio, cassette player), kind of a ripoff since they bury this info in the manual

It sounds like you have a bad speaker on the zone 2, or you have the speakers connected improperly.

When you engage the zone 2 a relay clicks and the speakers then become part of the amplifiers circuit.

If the problem was in the amplifier, it would go into protect mode without even having speakers connected to it.

If the speakers all check good, you most likely have the wrong type of speakers, meaning the impeadance is too low, or you have too many speakers connected to it.

On the back of the Denon, you will see right around the speaker output jacks, what ratings the speakers should be. If I remember correctly, it says 6 ohms or more when using only "A" or "B", and it says 12ohms or more for "A" + "B".

If you have two 8 ohm speakers on the same speaker jack you now have a 4 ohm load. That is below the ratings and can cause the amp to shut down (go into protect). Since your amp shuts down right away, I think you have a bad speaker or way too many speakers connected.

I have seen many times when people will connect 2 or 4 speakers to the one of the outputs that are designed for only 1 speakers.

If you are using too many speakers you will need a speaker distribution box. It has a resistor network built into it so the amp never sees a lower impeadance than what it is designed for.
You can connect 4, 6 or 8 speakers to one set of outputs designed for 2 speakers. You do loose a lot of power to the speakers, but it is better than blowing up your amplifier.

If I can be of any further help, let me know.

Bose amplifier does not work with a 6 speaker selector


your wall speakers may not be connected.... disconnect each speaker from the selector box and test with a small AAA battery to see if they are connected by putting the battery between each speaker's wires , you will hear it crackle ,then gradually connect each wall speaker onto the speaker connector box . If the first set does not work i suggest there may be a problem with your speaker selector box . Good luck
