Most amps will only power two sets of speakers direcrly hooked to amp (A&B). If you want audio throughout the house, I would recommend a PA system set up with individual room volume controls

Hi I have a Yamaha dsp ax2 amp running onto some floor standing b&w speakers but have put put the amp on half way to hear anything, any ideas ? Is there a setting I need to change? Thanks Rich


Rich, double check your speaker connections to make sure that you got them wired correctly. Select the correct "main" speakers (A or B), or whatever configuration you use. On the speakers check that you have the links in (600 series) if you use single wire connection. And last but not least check the impedance setting on your amp (switch on the right hand side of the back of you amp) If you use A/B connection I think the switch should be in the up position .
Have Fun.

I hook up my Paramax P-1620 speakers to the reciever and the reciever goes into protect mode..


Does the receiver do that with just headphone plugged in?
If not I would say that one of your speakers has an internal short or close to it ( like 2 ohms)

Hi,

Try less speakers.
The impedance will be to low for this amp.

AV reciever sound goes off


If it is working fine and then shuts off and gets hot in just a matter of seconds then you are in the process of frying your amp. Disconnect all speakers and recheck your speaker load. Try only one speaker on one channel and then one on the other channel at first. Or better still, while you have all the speakers removed, try listening on headphones and see what happens. It sounds like you have seriously overloaded your output transistors with the wrong speaker configuration. Good luck.

Yamaha Dsp-A1000 5 ch amp Bought a used amp will be hooked to an awia reciever and speakers also have two subwoofers need help to install correctly witch connections to use


if you wanted to use your receiver as your controller and source then try to find out the receivber has got a bridge (jumper) between the pre-amp stage and the power amp stage. if your receiver does not have that, then you can just connect your receiver tape record out to one of your DSP inputs. subwoofers, the DSP has got a sub woofer out connector. you can use that (RCA type) to your sub woofers. put in series because DSP has got only one output for sub. or, you can connect your subs directly to the mains speakers, parallel connections. maybe one sub to your left and the other to your right channel.

Speaker hook ups


It seems you are implying that your receiver itself has got an amp though small. You use another amp to boost your power, is that right?

It will definitely damage both your receiver and amp, just waiting which one to go first if you do what you are saying. In the first place how do you connect your receiver to the second amp? it has a line out i suppose? and for now your speakers are only connected to the booster amp? So it is only a matter of selecting where your speakers get connected when you wanted. DO NOT, in any case splice your speaker wire to attach your receiver speaker to the output of your booster where your speakers are connected.

What you can do is just make a switch selecting which source you will use for your speakers. You just need a simple toggle switch 2poles/double throw. 1pole for each channel (R/L) connect your center pole to speaker, the other selectable 2poles to the output of booster, the other pole to the receiver. (each channel) that is your safest. If you a a techie you can actually make a power driven relay switch to select the speakers where to get connected but maybe you can not do that on your own. it has to be someone with knowhow, simple design though. the same principle, your meccanilca 2pole/double throw switch will be replaced by the same specs but relay. elecically driven whrn you turn on/off your booster.
