Question about JVC TH-A55 System

2 Answers

When setting up the surround sound, when you go into the "Settings" menu... What do the different options mean - eg Cross Over, the distance of the speakers, etc. I've lost my user manual, and have recently connected audio input via an optical co-axil cable from a HD PVR. Please help!!

    Thanks! Been a bit technically challenged, I might still need some "layman's" terms in getting the setup 100%. From an input, I select the DBS from the remote..... Now with the original speakers, what should my settings be?



    Centre speaker - about 2.5m from listening seat

    Front speakers - about 2.7m from listening seat

    Surround speakers are behind listening seat, about 5m from JVC unit, about 2.7m from listening seat.



    Can you assist so I get the best results for Dolby 5.1?

These settings are to make the proper accoustic corrections in the Amplifiers equaliser to match the best performance.
So in the settings you can just put what the menu demand and the amplifier is made to correct on the spectrum of frequency to give the ideal sound for the room accoustics.
Cross over: This means the cross over frequency that is desired by you for crossing over each of the higher and lower frequencies to the speakers around , mainly the surround, the main and the centre with the subwoofer.
The cross over frequency determines the frequency that crosses over the sub woofer- Bass and the others.
Within every speaker there is a cross-over sections, some are passive types and some are active types.
The distance of the Speakers: The distance of the Main speakers apart , the distance of the surround from the main.
This is again to set the speakers to respond accordingly to correct the power for delivery to match the room accoustics.
If your room is of good accoustics you will get the best of these settings but with a poor accoustic room these setting can make a difference but not entirely
Hope these tips helps. please comment

Surround Sound System Settings ---- Correct Time Delay Setting in Multi-channel Audio

A correctly set surround sound system can yield dramatic improvements to your
home theater sound or multi-channel music listening experience. In particular,
a correctly set time delay setting between the different channels is essential
for a realistic and unified surround soundfield.
Luckily, most of today's surround processors make setting the time delays
between the rear and the fronts a matter of a few entries in the setup menu.
Yet having a proper understanding of the principles behind correct time delay
settings is essential for the best results.
In this guide, we explain the principles behind time delay settings in surround
sound and show you how to adjust your surround processor or AV receiver for the
best surround sound field.

Time Delay Setting in Multi-channel Surround Sound Systems

Correct home theater speaker placement and properly balanced sound levels
between the different channels in multi-channel audio, while crucial, are not
enough to sustain a unified soundfield in a surround sound setup. A correctly
set surround sound system requires that sound from all the different speakers
reach the listener at exactly the same instant.
This explains why all fronts, left, right and center channel speakers, should
be set at exactly the same distance from the listening position. At the same
time, in a typical home theater setup, the surround speakers are closer to the
viewer than the fronts.

To compensate for this distance discrepancy, surround sound playback systems
apply a split-second delay to the surround sound channels.

The rear surround sound speakers are not working.the front ones are and the sub woofer works fine also. everything is connected properly but have no idea what to do to make them work.can you please help


Make sure that the media you are using has the surround sound...eg. if you are listening to the radio then the rear speaskers will not work as the signal is not transmitted in surround...if you put a dvd in that has the dolby digital signal encoded on it then the rears should work....the rears will only work when you have the receiver in the surround mode..make sure the receiver is in the right mode...also, you may have rear speaker volume settings in the setup menu that may need to be set up..go through the manual and see if there is a setting for the rear volume...most home theater sets have this feature and it allows you to set up the system for different size rooms

My surround speakers are too loud. I have adjusted the speaker level, speaker distance and surround level but none of these seem to change. When i go back into menu it does reflect the changes but doesn't...


Did you try changing the front & center speakers to a higher level as well as setting the surrounds to a lower level? Are all speakers using the same wire gage?

Sony STR 1200 audio-visual sync


Yes it can be fixed.

Enter the speaker setup menu and toggle till you get to the selection for speaker distance. Assuming that you have your speakers properly positioned for correct reproduction of 5.1 surround sound, decreasing the setting for speaker distance will help. Start with 3-4 feet closer from the current setting. This enables the on board DSP (digital signal processor) to delay in milliseconds, the sound output for closer distance settings. It can also advance in milliseconds as well for further distance settings FYI.

Connect creative 4.1 speakers with laptop at time 2 speaker work


i assume ur mother board supports surround sound an ur using windows os. go to control panel - sounds and audio devices - speaker settings-advanced - speaker set up with the drop down menu. select surround sound - apply - ok.
if ur using surround audio drivers like realtek, etc. the settings console should have somewhat similar options like audio input/output (I/O) options. select surround sound speaker setting and configure which audio port should be audio output ports. driver settings can be accessed from control panel too. to access control panel click on start menu there u'll see the control panel menu.

I have a 32 inch LG4000 with built in DVD. Poor Audio


Luke,
You are not asking too much and I believe that you can solve this problem in a menu option on your TV. Most systems designed to work with surround sound and/or by itself have some audio options that are designed to simulate or work in concert with surround sound. Start by looking around your TV menu options for something labeled digital audio compression or something like it. Sometimes there will also be a function in a menu to "simulate" surround sound attributes. Try to change these to factory or default settings, and if that still sounds the same try changing the settings around until you hear more accurate audio.

The sound of my tv is in background, I can't hear ear it correctly even if the volume is high. I went in the options to put the speakers on, it's on. The cyclone is on aswell. Except the audio...


Turn off all automatic settings in the audio menu as well as any surround settings. Surround settings and auto level settings often cause this.
