Question about Koss KS5190 System

1 Answer

Two of the surround speakers are not working. There used to be three that were not working but I jiggled the wires around and put them in further and it fixed the problem. That does not seem to be the case with these other two. Any suggestions?

Check that the wires going into the connectors on the amp are properly stripped and then do a speaker test if speakers works on speaker test then change the accoustic settings on the amp if this does not swap the speakers cables around on amp and check if do have a faulty speaker.chance are that your accoustic settings are not set for 5.1 surround sound but for stereo this is common if your low or bass speaker is not working.

How do I connect a Logitech z506 surround sound system to an LG 50LS4000 TV


It will never fit because that surround system was made for an audio card for desktop computer. Green is main, tan is surround and black is bass or woofer. There hasn't being any adapter yet for this type of configuration, sorry.

How to set up a six speaker home theater surround sound system


This walk through is for a six speaker setup but can be used for any type. First you will have a sub., a center speaker, a surround L and R, and a front L and R. Most likely your speaker wire (silvery wire) will have a colored tip at end. This tip will show where the wire fits into the bluray or DVD player and what speaker it goes to. I am going to use the Surround Right or S.R. as an example because most the speakers are very similar to set up. The S.R. is (at least for me) a smaller black speaker with a gray sticker on the back indicating what wire should be use for it. The S.R. should be hung behind the main seat (Sofa, Chair, Etc.) and to your right side. and the wire should be ran around the ceiling to the DVD or Bluray player (its good to hide it behind wall edging or pictures) and then fit the colored piece at the end of the cord into the correct colored slot at the back of the player. If necessary use a staple gun to attach the wire to the the back of the wall edging (make sure the staples are not visible because I guarantee you won't want it there forever. Also, make sure to not tear or puncture the wire with the staple. Repeat this step for all the other speakers. Your setup should look some thing like this


Left Front Sp.////////// Center Sp. /////////// Right Front Sp.

On AUX connection not all the speakers work


Below is a review of the T7900 which I've copied to provide info on the system setup. For Surround Sound to work properly,Computer Sound Cards and Home Theater receivers will have speaker outputs for front, rear, side, subwoofer speakers.

"This is a set of 7.1 speakers designed to be connected to your PC's
sound card. 7.1 means that you get 7 speakers with the .1 referring to the sub woofer which generates the bass. The sub woofer is the large box that connects to the mains and is designed to be kept out of sight under your desk. The speakers are relative small which allows you to have three on your desk and the other four discretely placed around the room. Finding some where to put the side speakers can be a pain though however you don't have to use them all. The unit has a switch on the back which allows you to either use 5, 6 or 7 speakers - this is useful as gives more flexibility dependant on the shape of you room. The number of speakers does mean running lots of cables around the room and this is the main disadvantage. Although the cables are fairly thin and can be tacked to the wall (I have hidden them under the carpet though). The unit connects to the three outputs on your sound card. The leads are colour coded but its worth sticking labels on them to correspond to the connectors on the sound card as if you ever unplug them it can be a pain to get them back in the right order. The sound quality is excellent especially in a smaller room - the bass in particular can be very powerful (this can be controlled via the wired remote). It works better for games than movies though but overall you are unlikely to get better sound quality for the money. Highly recommend."

I need to make my speakers wires longer for my RCA surround sound


If your speaker have wires that are hooked directly to the speakers and there is no terminal, you will have to splice new wire onto the existing ones. Be carefull and use crimp connectors, available at Radio Shack, these connectors are best because they will keep the speaker wires from touching and damaging your unit.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.
If you need further assistance please comment to this post and I will try to help you further.

Speaker not working


Either. You can probably order a new driver (speaker, no box) from Mission, then put it in yourself. This usually involves 4 screws around the speaker, then disconnecting a coulple of wires, putting the new one in and letting the speaker bed in for a while. You've then got a working speaker, and a nice paperweight.

If you have more money, and fancy an upgrade, you can buy some new speakers. An odd one wouldn't match the others, so it would be 4 satellites and a centre required. The subwoofer should be fine.

Surround Speakers will not work


Perhaps you have the live wire in the wrong connector from the speakers? They should be color coded. I would check that first. And if you have moved, they are most likely in different positions, you'll have to rerun the audio setup for the surround sound. You should have a separate microphone to use for that that plugs in to the system.

Problem with speaker wires making contact in back of reciever on


Open up the receiver and check for poor solder connections @ the spkr junctions.

If you can solder, then solder a pin that is THICKER than the wire to it, the Bose wire is fairly thin and the spring clips don't clamp to heavily to thin stuff.

When you push the surrounds in you bottom them out in the connector. Having a thicker wire will eliminate the problem, use a piece of 12ga solid wire from house wiring. Make as many as you need and shrink tube all connections after soldering. Use White for + and Black for -.

Kenwood VR6070 speaker/amp problems


unit needs repair. Look at the b speakers. Conect a speaker or two to the B position. If you have no sound than your surrond sound is ok and the unit is bad. Sound comes directly into the b speaker and not threw the surrond system. My 6070 has a cold start up problem. no sound. time to purchase a new one. to costly to repair.

Surround speakers don't work


Hello barstep,

Let's go through some steps that will help alleviate your problem. We'll start from the simple to the not so obvious:

1.- Perform a visual inspection on the back of the receiver and verify that all speaker connections (specially the surrounds) are not loose, shorting out another connection or are pushed too deep into the speaker connector so the wire insulation prevents proper contact. If this is not the problem then...
2.- Get into your receiver's "Manual Setup" and verify that your surround speakers are set either to "SML" or "LRG" but not "NONE".
3.- Verify the receiver is not in "Straight" mode, shown on the receiver's display. I f so, press the "Straight" front panel button until indication disappears.

Your owner's manual can give you detailed information to access the setup menus.
Hope this information helps. Let me know if we can further assist you.

The center speaker shouldn't be on the surround outputs it should be on the Center output. The surround outputs are for the rear speakers.
