Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

Hey I have a XR-P970F pioneer stereo that I got from my dad a long time ago and I was going to get some new cables for it at the source so I was trying to get a feel for how many watts it can handle. It originally came with 2 100 watt speakers and 3 20 watt speakers and I recently got 2 70 watt speakers from a garage sale that I wanted to replace the 20 watts with. The guy at the store said that since my system said it was 180 watts on the back that it shouldn't be able to handle the 2 100 watt speakers I have at all which doesn't make any sense. I've held off on trying to mesh together all these speakers now out of fear of destroying the system all together. So how do I find out how much it can take?

SOURCE: overload

well based on the specification of the unit u can use only 100 Watts x 2 for stereo and 100 Watts x 5 for surround. but u used 250 Watts x 2, this alone will overload the system. u may have blown the power amplifier ic/transistor not the fuse, otherwise there will be no display at all.

SOURCE: Can I run 8 speakers and 1 sub through 1 1200watt 2:1 Sony Xplod?

asuming the 8s are 4ohms each; wire two in series and that gives you 8ohms then two more in series then you put those together in parallel and it gives you a 4ohm load. repeat with other four for the other side. you should then be able to bridge the sub

series; posative of one speaker to negative of other speaker and that doubles your ohms

parallel; posative to posative negative to negative and that cuts the ohms in half

SOURCE: connecting TV and DVD for surround sound

HDMI is fantastic in that's the only thing you need to plug in to get what you want.
You'll need two of them however. Plug one end of the HDMI cord into the HDMI "OUT" on the dvd player and the other end of it to the receiver..labeled HDMI 'IN' Then, take the second cord and do that step with the receiver back to your big screen...HDMI OUT to IN.
Surround sound from TV sources only needs a L&R audio cable connected to the receiver input labled TV or MONITOR audio IN. Unless you'd like 5.1 dolby digital or DTS from the television that requires devices that you haven't mentioned owning. In that case you will be able to get Dolby ProLogic and Pro Logic II from stereo broad casted sources on your TV.

I have a pioneer file type cd deck receiver XR-P970F. It doesnt play tape. It tries then it stops without even starting to rotate tape. What might be the problem. This tapes means something to me.

can you not retrieve you tape ?

this is caused by a safety feature, your tape is not damaged more than it might already be, if your take up spool the right side dos not rotate when it is suppose to it registers a fault. in all cases it simply dos not play the tape.
some other units require the loading of the tape path components IE pinch roller/ and tape pickup heads if this function is interrupted and unable to complete its cycle you will not get your tape back untill you dissasembe and manualy advance the funtion to it`s conclution .

How do I get constant time on my DEH-7300BT stereo if I have the stereo turned off? Thank you

Make sure the yellow wire is going to a constant power source. I.e. a source that is still hot when the key is turned off.

Pioneer receiver sx-315

With persistence, I was able to program the Universal Remote Control provided with the cable box to control my new used Pioneer SX-315 receiver. I now can control the tv volume, cable box, auxiliary stereo receiver with speaker system with one remote. Thank goodness I did not have to resort to buying a Pioneer remote control.

I was able to program another previously unused universal remote which I purchased several years ago. However, since the other remote control did not list the Vizio TV. That brand is too new for the remote.

Unit is always shutting down / turning off

Try first unplugging power cable for five minutes and using a different power outlet, if you still get the problem, the unit has a faulty power supply on the board inside.

Will no longer switch to sirius sat rec

My dad had a similar issue. The only way we resolved it was by unplugging the satellite receiver cable from the stereo, turn on, then off again, then plug the cable back in. Essentially, it has to re-recognize that the cable is plugged in.
