My finace pulled this system out of the basement after a long time. I hooked it up and all works fine, but we are missing one set of speaker wires. Can I just go buy the same type of speaker plug at radio shack or something or do I need to order one from somewhere. Does anyone have an extra set I can buy from?

Re: Need one set of speaker wires.
If the wires have just bare ends plugged into spring-loaded contacts then you can get some twin lead from radio shack or walmart. Just make sure you match the colors from the stereo to the speakers otherwise you might not get real stereo or surround.

if the speaker has been at all moved the wire could have broken i currently have a cyber accoustics ca-4400 set and the wires are very flimsy looking and i previously owned a ca-3001 set and the sub wire on the 3001 broke after a simple move up from my basement and i went through like 4 power supplys on it until i just bought a non cyber acoustics supply so cyber acoustics cords are VERY flimsy and that may be why you are getting no sound from your right speaker
Looks like the speaker is blown , or the wiring inside the speaker is broken. To test if the speaker is working, simply hook up the terminals to the ends of a AA, AAA or C battery. Speaker should make a noise, and the cone should push outwards ( or pull inwards, if the polarity of the battery is reversed). Also test the wires that are hooked to the amplifier with a speaker that you know is good working order, just to make sure that there is nothing wrong on the wiring, on that particular channel in the amp.
I don't think it has a low wattage setting. Have you tried hooking up another deck to see if the problem carries over to the second head unit. Most usually when a head unit shuts off like that, you first worry is true. Are you using the factory wiring in the vehicle?? May I also suggest pulling the head unit out and hooking up all four channels using after market wiring. By using this troubleshooting method is would give you a definate answer on your wiring problem. If The problem persist, then it could be the head unit itself is going bad. Also, one last thing, even if you think the speakers are fine, if one of the speakers is malfunctioning, then it would also cause the player to kick into safe mode.
I do not want to insult you in any way, but I must ask just in case it was overlooked! First check to be sure that the speaker settings on the stereo were not set all the way to the front. If that is not the problem, you can hook another speaker you know works to the wireing to the rear speakers to check to see if it is the speaker or the wireing. If you hear sound from the speaker you know works, then your speakers in the car are bad. If you do not hear sound, then it will be from the wireing. Next is the more difficult part. You will have to pull the stereo out and can splice into the wires. Hook the good speakers up to the splice and check for sound. make sure you know for sure the wires you splice into are for the rear speakers. If you still hear no sound, then it is more then likely a problem in the stereo itself. If you do hear sound then there is a problem in the wireing somewhere and may be easier to just run new wires to the rear speakers.
This definately means that you have a positve and negative speaker wire touching somewhere. First thing to do would be to check all connections at the speakers and on back of receiver and make sure all wires are seperated. This is a common problem if two wires are touching each other. If you check all connections and they look ok and you still have same problem you need to start unhooking all wires and hook them up one at a time and turn on system. If it works with one speaker then try hooking up a second speaker wire and so on until it gives you protection message again. Basically process of elemenation. Once you says that protection message you need to replace the last wire you hook up all together as you could of damaged it when running speaker wire or it could be a defect in speaker wire.
THIS UNIT HAS NO SUB WOOFER AMP IN IT. THE ONLY WAY TO OVER COME THIS IS TO HOOK THE LEFT AND RIGHT FRONT SPEAKERS STRAIGHT TO THE SUB WOOFER AND THEN GO FROM THE SUB WOOFER BACK TO THE INPUTS ON THE BACK OF THE UNIT FOR THE FRONT SPEAKERS. THE SUB WOOFER THIS WAY WILL EXTRACT THE BASS AND THE FRONT WILL RECEIVE THEIR PART. THIS SOUNDS CRAZY AS HELL I KNOW BUT THAT'S HOW I GOT MINE TO WORK. THE OUTPUT FOR THE SUBWOOFER IS USELESS AND PUT THERE FOR YOU TO HOOK UP AN AMP FOR A SUB WOOFER. EVERYTHING HAS SHORT COMINGS, AND THAT'S THE ONE FOR THE AX-720.
