Hi there i jus wanted to know if the aiwa lcx 337 k has RCA connections so i could connect my mixer to it, and also if i could run 200 watt technics speakers through it aswell? cheers


No external tape loops. This is NOT a component system in the usual sense.

Wattage is not THE major consideration, impedance is.I can't find any documentation on this product but these small units are usually spec'd for speakers with less than 8-ohms to tweak the power output figure at a dreadful distortion level. All other things being equal, 8-ohm speakers would require more power so you'd have to crank it more. Overdriving any amplifier (like this one) will create speaker-killing distortion.

Two main speakers, 8 ohms each for the stage, two smaller speakers for back of hall, of 6 ohms each. One rheastat available. How do I connect these to the amplifier, please?


You don't need to use the rheostat. If your receiver is 8 Ohms you can run all the speakers to the amp one speaker per channel just fine. Just leave the amplifier on 8 Ohms. It will be fine. Use the reviver gain and volume as you normally would.

Pioneer sx-255r can i connect 6 - 8 ohms


Yes, you can use them but be careful. These are not necessarily robust speakers. If they sound strained, back off.

How do i connect 4ohm speakers to my 8ohm jvc receiver


You must connect two sets of speakers to do this.
You must connect them in series.
Meaning, you connect the positive of one to the positive (red) on that reciever. Then you connect the negetive of that speaker to the positive of another four ohm speaker, then run the negetive of that speaker to the negetive on the reciever. Just like if you were connecting batteries together.

Remember never to connect multiple speakers in paralell. (positive to positive and negetive to negetive) as this would make four ohm speakers into a two ohm configuration.

You can use speakers with higher ohm ratings in this setup. For instance, if you connect an eight ohm speaker in series with a four ohm this would give you 12 ohms. Which is also acceptable.

Looking to connect 4 speakers to the surround back


Series the speakers, they may not get as much power as you would like, but your receiver will last longer.

I have a Bose Accumass 6 system connected to an Onkyo amp running as a entertainment system on our boat. The quality is sufficient for what we need. The amp (a TX-DX575) has A&B speaker switches for a...


two 8 ohm speakers in parallel is 4 ohms.
if series 16 ohms.a high resistance will just produce less power.
too low a number can activate the speaker protect,or blow the amp.
radio shack sell wall mounted speaker controls,but 5 watt max.
the best thing is to run 2 amplifiers.one for in ,2 for out
speaker a and b on the amp parallel the speakers.
if you run 2 sets of 4ohm speakers,the amplifier load will be 2 ohms,and overheat the amp.4 8 ohm speakers,gives a 4 ohm load

Speakers


If I understand you right, you have 7 speakers on 7 different channels.
When you have just 1 speaker connected it sounds fine, but any time you add more speakers it shuts down, or does it sound fine until you have all 7 of the speakers connected.

Bare with me, and we will figure this out. It is a very diificult job trying to troubleshoot something that is not in front of you.

After this post, it will be about an hour or so before you will hear from me again, I will be on my way home from work.

Is this a 5.1 surround system or is it listed as 7.1?

Do have have any speaker outputs with more than 1 speaker connected to it.

If this is a 5.1 system, do you have speakers connected to the "A and "B" speaker jacks?

What kind of speakers are they, and do they say on the back where you connect the speaker wire what ohm rating they are. Most speakers for your home are 8 ohms.

in case you were wondering what a 5.1 and a 7.1 system is:

the 5.1 system has front right, front left, center, rear right, rear left and the .1 is for the sub-woofer that is normally a RCA jack output on the back of the receiver

The 7.1 has all those same speaker outputs plus it has a surround back with right and left channel.

I will get back to you in about an hour or so.

Trying to hook up jbl sr4732 speakers the highs are to loud compaird to the bass or lows. im only using a onkio with a 100 watt per speaker.


These JBL speakers are not made for a home stereo reciever. It could be part of the problem.

I do know that they have a high frequency input and a full range input on each speaker.

I am going to guess that maybe you have them connected to the high frequency input.

Are you using 1/4 inch jacks connecting to the input of the speakers?

I don't remember these speakers having a input for wires.

You may have another issue using these speakers with that reciever.

The JBL speakers are 4 ohms each, it is very likely that the onkyo requires 8 ohm speakers.

Look on the back of the Onkyo where the speaker jacks are at and see if it says anything about the minimum impeadance.

The impeadance is the ohms. Most home recievers are not designed for anything less than 8 ohms. Some are, but most are not.

Using 4 ohm speakers on a system that requires 8 ohm speakers can cause damage to the reciever. Mostly at higher volume levels, it will cause the reciever to overheat and shut off, maybe short out a channel. It pulls 2 times the amount of current thru the output transistors as 8 ohm speakers.

Let me know if this helps you or if you need more help.

OVERLOAD


HOW MANY SPEAKERS ARE YOU RUNNING? IF you are running more than TWO speakers, the very FIRST thing to check is to make certain ALL of your speakers have an IMPEDENCE of 8 OHMS. Virtually all speakers of even modest quality will include this specification on a label on the back of the speaker. You CANNOT run more than (2) TWO speakers with 4 OHMs impedence on ANY amplifier (technical discussion too long!) [NOTE: Some Pioneer equipment have internal overload protection systems to prevent permanent damage. However, you cannot re-set these systems yourself. Your dealer or authorized HK service center must do this.] But, before you take your unit in for service, there is one more "test": check for shorted and/or mis-connected/disconnected speaker cables/wires. Visually inspect connections at the receiver and speakers first. You might find something obvious! If everything looks okay, then disconnect ALL of the speakers; and reconnect and test them one at a time (at relatively low volume.) For example, reconnect the left front speaker, test the system; THEN add the right front, test the system,and so on, ADDING one more speaker each time - FIRST MAKING SURE EACH OF THEM HAS AN IMPEDENCE OF AT LEAST 8 OHMS! IF there is a short (or bad speaker) this will help isolate it. Hopefully one of these "fixes" will work for you. GOOD LUCK!
