Question about JBL PSW1200 Speaker

1 Answer

I purchased 2 jbl 2328 self powered studio monitors. I have an onkyo home theater system 75 RMS per channel. . No RCA outs. Strictly speaker wire connections. When I disconnected one of the front speakers and connected jbl 2328 there was immediately a hum through out the system. All of the speakers. I disconnected the speaker and the hum stopped. I had all volume controls down to the minium level. I disconnected the sub woofer and tried reverseing the wires. I also used an RCA jack to connect to the speaker while bareing the wires to connect to the Home Entertainment center.

Connecting the powered JBLs to Onkyo speaker outputs (high level) invites the hum problem you are experiencing.

SOURCE: JBL TLX PS10 Subwoofer - Does not work

If you have checked the fuses which it sounds like you have, your amp may be out. Take that RCA and plug it into the other speaker. If thar she blows, treat as warranty and call the factory. If this is helpful, please post as such.

Kinetic Loud Speaker KA-4260


Kinetic speakers are generally 8 ohm, so they should work fine with the Onkyo.Your amp has a rating of 80 watts per channel, but I'm not sure of the power handling of the speakers.

KENWOOD KR-V8030 SPECS


I have had this exact Receiver and this is taken right from the specs. in the manual, "120 watts per channel RMS" at 8 ohms - this is in Stereo mode (2 speakers) only". When surround sound is used, "75 watts RMS for Front and Center speakers and 15 watts RMS for rear (surround) speakers. From experience, the Stereo only mode is definitely stronger/louder than when switching to Surround. Most newer receivers are the same wattage regardless of mode.

Hoe to connect Bose Lifestyle 25 Home Theater System speakers to onkyo SRX-508


Do you mean TX-SR508? The following should work even if that is not the exact model.

The LS25 supports ONLY analog stereo audio input and the speakers themselves are NOT desigend to be driven by anything BUT the LS25 electronics.

If you still want to use the LS25 as speakers just run an RCA cable pair from VCR / DVR Out on the Onkyo to the AUX IN on the LS25 Music Center.

Selecting an amplifier!


Buy a quality 2 channel amp. About 600 rms and set one channel as your highs using your crossover and then the second channel on "low" position for your sub. wire directly in to your low's channel with your sub at 2 ohms and then wire your speakers to the other channel.

I want to run an additional amplifier from my 5.1 surround system amp speaker output to drive large dj speakers. The dj speakers need 175 rms and my 5.1 only has 100 rms per channel. Can I just wire from...


Speaker output from the amplifier is a higher voltage than a preout. The speaker level signal has to be reduced to a line level signal in order to connect to another amplifier. I used a car stereo "speaker to line level adapter" and then connected a second amp to run my front channel speakers. Works just fine.

I need speakers for my Onkyo A-911M integrated amp


A+B speakers = 4 channels 2 right 2 left

100 watts/4 = 25 watts per channel

RMS watts / channel = 25 x .707 = 18 watts/channel which is your average consumer stereo system

I would use 8 or 16 ohm speakers (not 4 ohm) -- almost any set of stereo speakers will "work" -- these will be 8 ohm and about 5 watt minimum / 40 watt max thereabouts

More watts needed


Add another power amp to line outs from your main amp to your speakers this will give more power(current) to your main speakers as you have decreased load on main amp

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.
