Question about Audio Players & Recorders

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.

Home Theater Setup - Rear Speakers


When people install their own home theater systems they typically use these small stick-type stands for the rear speakers. This leaves one (or all) rear speaker blasting right into your ear, which is not how the rear speakers should be.

Rear speakers should be mounted two to three feet above ear level or higher, get those speakers off of the stands and onto the walls. The reason for this is that they were intended to add a background effect, they are not meant to distract your from the picture.

If your room (or significant other) does not allow speakers to be mounted up, then move your rears back a bit and aim them towards each other, this will maximize their effect and not distract you from the front while you enjoy your movie.

Connect powered subwoofer to system with no pre-out connector?


You will require a Line level converter... usually reserved for car audio applications - but it should work in yours as well.

It converts the speaker wires to RCAs.

How to extend speaker cables of Philips MX6050D DVD Home Theater


Go down to your local RadioShack or any place that sells wire of any sorts (heck, even Walmart might carry it now) and ask them for speaker wire. I'm not sure what the impedance of this particular model is, but you should be able to find it printed on the back of the speakers, or in your user's manual. This guide will help you to identify what size speaker wires you need, that way when you go in looking for speaker wire, you'll at least sound like you know what you're doing.

Philips Home Theater Speaker Wire (can it be cut?)


Sure you can, Joel.

Put the speakers wherever they will go, and cut the wire from the speaker to whatever length you need to reach your wall terminals. Leave some slack so you can move the speakers if needed. Strip off whatever length of insulation you need to make the terminal connection. Note that the speaker wire will have some kind of polarity marking. There will be a colored stripe or other mark on the insulation, or the conductors themselves may be different colors (usually one wire is copper, and the other tinned so it's silver colored). It doesn't matter which you use for positive as long as you're consistent and use the same one for each speaker.

At the other end where the prewiring comes out for your home-theater system, splice the connector ends you cut off onto the installed wires, following the same polarity. I recommend using an appropriate size insulated **** splice to make the connection. The crimper and splices can be found at auto parts stores, Radio Shack or most hardware stores. It's quick, reliable and makes sure there are no bare wires to short out.

Plug the speakers into the system and you should be good to go. Whip up some popcorn and enjoy the show!
