For cds the audio is recorded in just right and left channel, and the center balances it out. You can force it to play out of more speakers by switching the AUDIO MODE of the receiver to something like Pro Logic II, this takes the 2 channels and then forces them to all channels. This is actually not recommended though, it is meant to sound a certain way and forcing it out of all speakers doesn't give you the true sound. But if you just want it to come out of all 5 it is definitely possibly, just switch the audio mode on the receiver. If you need more information on this please respond back to my answer here and I can help more.

Please make sure you rate my answer 4 thumbs up, it is extremely important to me. I would be forever grateful if you could do so. If you need more help on this question please just respond to my answer here and I will get right back to you.


Thanks
Tim

Make sure your speakers and dvd player disk is clean. Skips are common from the lazer reading and will read much better with a quick check on the cd.

Plays only mono when listening to music


I lot could depend on how the music source has been connected to the receiver. If you are using a stereo CD player then you may need to check if it is configured to send audio in stereo mode and not mono. The input source selection for the audio is given in page 26 of the manual.
You can go to the setting menu in Receiver and configure the speakers settings according to which ones you have installed.
Also refer page 25 in the manual to over ride speaker configuration if it is not showing correct.

ADCOM7500 how to use it?


Good gift. It is a 5 channel power amplifier and I do not recommend to connect any sources directly to it. Now you need to buy a preamplifier/ receiver from Adcom GTP series or other brand to connect you dvd player, cd player, cable box, playstation etc. you need 5 good speakers to get your surround sound (or 2 for stereo)

I have hk3385 receiver and Ipod Touch 4G. I have the cable to connect them. Where do I hook the cable on the receiver (or do I?) and which buttons will play the Ipod music. No video, just music


The manual suggests that you use "A / V 3" (audio / video input 3) for your iPad / iPod audio input. These are the RED and WHITE jacks on the front lower right hand side of the receiver. The YELLOW jack is for composite VIDEO, and need not be connected for "audio only" programs.

Turn the volume on the iPod / iPad to MINIMUM (assuming the receiver volume is at a "normal" setting for the radio, CD, etc.). Connect the cable between the iPod / iPad and the A / V 3 RED and WHITE audio jacks. Select A / V Input 3 on the receiver. Find a song you want to listen to and select PLAY in the iPod / iPad. Slowly adjust the volume on the iPod / iPad up to a comfortable level. If there is distorted sound, adjust he receiver and iPod / iPad volumes up and down as needed. Generally, neither should be set very low or very high.

You can download the owners manual here.

I hope this helps & good luck. Please rate my reply - thanks!

I have 3 sets of 2 ceiling speakers install throught the home for listening to music from ipod, cd, fm, etc... These speakers are not for home theater use (I have another 7.1 system for that). My question...


Hi,
firstly you could be experiencing "phasing" as you may have not spaced/set up the speakers properly. Also make sure plus on the amp goes to plus on the speak and ten - to - on the amp and speaker. cross them over at any stage or pair and again you will get your problem.ugest
It could also be you sre over driving your amp. How many ohms is each speaker and how many ohms is your amp capable of? 6 speakers to one stereo amp with one speaker out is very rare and usually quite damaging to equipment.
personally I would suggest one pre amp (to plug sources into) then 3 stereo power amps (one for each pair of speakers)

No sign of life in external notebook speakers


  1. If the powerlight is turning on some times and off sometimes, Then it may be a problem with the powersupply connected to the speakers. Check it.
  2. If the speakers are on and are not playing, Then try playing some music through alternate source like ipod,walkman etc.If the speakers are playing with alternate music source, The try reinstalling the audio drivers of your note book.
  3. If not then your speakers might have fried up due to some reason.
