Question about Speakers & Subwoofers

1 Answer

Home Theater My home came with pre-installed speakers for home theater, which are also in each room in the house and outside. For no apparent reason, half the speakers have stopped working. I have checked all the connections (I think), but cannot seem to find the cause of why some are working some are not.

    The receiver is a NAD T-761 surround sound receiver; amplifiers are Harmon Kardon PA 4000. The interior speakers are also Harmon Kardon, and the exterior ones are Niles.

There is most likelt a channel not working in either the receiver or amplifier depending upon what equipment you own. Could you update this with a list of the equipment in the system?
Thanks,

    We need to determine whether one of the amps has a problem or if the amp is not being feed a signal to amplify. Can you provide a simple stick diagram or description of what is connected to what? For example, the left pre-amp out from the NAD761 is connected to HK amp #1 left. With that info, I'll give you a process to isolate the problem equipment. Then we can determine how to fix that piece.

How do u connect the wireless speakers ?


Not much info here, Anon. So, I'll tell you what I know about wireless speakers generally. I have a Samsung home theater which has wireless surround speakers. However, "wireless" simply means they're not wired to the receiver. Wires are needed, however, to run from the surrounds to a unit (receiver is all it is) which must be plugged into a regular wall plug. This receiver picks up the surround signals from the theater and then transmits them to the speakers.

Presumably, you have this wireless receiver unit which matches your speakers. . . If not, it may be something you must buy separately. I don't know what type of electronic equipment you're talking about here, but what I just described is the norm for home theater. The only truly "wireless" speakers I know of are battery powered and are for patios, porches, decks, etc. so that you can listen to your music outside. They are tuned to a particular radio frequency - like a walkie talkie.

I want to connect the Bose 901 speakers and accompanying equalizer to a modern home theater receiver.


Short answer from personal experience.

If you have Front Left and Right Pre-outs, you CAN swing it by getting a separate power amp for the 901's. Connect the EQ between the pre-outs and the amp input. Run speaker assignment, levels, etc and have fun.

If you don't have the between-speaker room for proper reflection off the front wall you CAN turn them around and you won't believe the amount of air these things push! I have actually felt it ten feet away after explosions or crashing ocean wave sounds. Now THAT is multi-media.

If you have the harmon kardon receiver, check out this reasonably priced system. You can actually find it cheaper than at this website but I have these speakers and, when paired with the Klipsch sub-woofer, it makes movie watching an unbelievable experience.

Connection between harmon receiver and A-bus in wall speakers...


There is a CAT5/RJ45 A-Bus interface on the back of the HK AVR 435. That needs to connect to your A-BUS "hub". HK has two hub products: ABH-4000 and ABH-4 (older). Then CAT5 cable can be run from this hub to Wall-installed room-specific controls. HK has the AB-2 product, but any ABus compatible wall control will work. From the wall control, you wire regular audio cable to the speakers. So, some of the questions/issues to solve are: where do the existing wires go that are connected to the in-wall speakers? Typically that location is where to place your in-wall volume and source controls. Then the CAT5 gets wired from those controls back to the hub. And all that's required is a single CAT5 from the AVR to the Hub.

Bose home theater


It may not have bass and treble controls, since most newer TV's now have these adjustments. Play around with your TV and see if you can find bass and treble adjustments from the remote.
