Pins look like this: (Top view, not copper side) 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
1 = Thin white wire from thick white cable (Left input) 2 = Gray (Speaker out) 3 = Orange (+V return from volume unit to bass unit) 4 = Not connected 5 = Thin Red wire from thick red wire (Right input) 6 = Blue (+V power from bass unit to volume unit) 7 = Black (GND - if socket removed, solder 3 socket shield holes to each other or solder black wire directly leftmost hole) 8 = Not connected 9 = Shield copper from thick red wire
Shield copper from thick wire : Solder to GND or Left unconnected
Have you connected the Left speaker to the right speaker using the supplied cable? If not, connect the cable to the socket on the back of the right speaker labelled "to left speaker" and on the left speaker, to the socket labelled "from right speaker" If this still doesn't solve the problem, try swapping the input cables (put the white plug in the red socket and vice versa) to see if this makes the left speaker produce sound, if it does, check the connection at the source to check the plug(s) are in all the way. If there is still no sound in the left speaker, unplug everything and do the following: connect the left and right speakers with the supplied phono lead (Probably black) between sockets labelled "to left speaker" and "from right speaker" then connect the source to any of the inputs on the back of the right speaker (ensure if using the red and white phono inputs that both are connected) finally plug in power source. Hope this helps
Is this just a speaker system or does it have a separate control unit?
My Creative system has a unit to select analogue, digital or optical inputs. Only the digital and optical will give 5.1 - but then only if the source material is Dolby Digital or Pro Logic.
The pb180 has High Input receptacles on the back end. They are marked High Input and identified as Channels 1&2 left/right, and channels 3&4 left/right. You will need to identify all speaker wires coming from your head unit ( left front +&--) , and so on. You will be sending the speaker wires from the head unit to the pb180's High Inputs. In other words, the front left speaker wires(+&-) from the head unit will go to the High Input Channels 1&2 side, left input of the pb180, and so on, so the speaker wires coming out of the head unit will need to be cut. And LABEL all sets of speaker wiresbefore you cut them! Then on the OUTPUT end of the pb180, you will be sending the wires back to the the respective speaker wires which are going to the speakers. So it's out from head unit to pb180 and out from pb180 to speakers.
Hopefully you have the plugs that Pyramid uses for the speaker wire inputs to the amp. If not you have to get creative, and make up terminals to fit into the input receptacles. Maybe a wire terminal from Radio shack will fit those pins..
Also, if you go on line: Google search "Pyramid auto amps" and click on "SEARCH" (upper right hand) of their Web Page. Plug in your model number like this, pb180, and you'll be able to download the manual for this amp. The manual has a full description of the wiring options.
Assuming that the sound is working in the computer and the SBS340 speakers are multi-media (with their own amplifier and power supply), plug the MINI stereo plug into the "green" jack (3 jacks in a row) on back of computer. Turn on the speaker switch and turn up volume about 1/3rd on the speaker. Then look for the electronic volume control (lower right corner next to the clock---will be a tiny speaker icon) , click on it and slide it up approx 1/8th to 1/4 the range. You will have to have some email or program that can supply some audio to see if it works. I have a MIDI file with gobs of numbers that I can call on.. If there is something wrong with the system, that's another story.
