Get a new center speaker. make sure it is the same ohmage as the old one and at least as many watts as the old one. the manual for your amp will state the wattage of the center channel, and may list the ohmage, but the ohmage will more likely be stamped on the back of the speaker itself.

the ohmage will be labeled with a ω (the greek symbol for "omega") and could be 2, 4, 6 8 or 16 ohm. the ohmage must match exactly. too few ohms will blow the amp, and too many ohms will make the center speaker too quiet.

We bought a tv for a gift, but the sound is hollow. The sound works, but is very tinny in quality. Is there a setting that will help with this?


, make sure you have a HDMI cord and read the book that came with your TV sometimes you have to change the settings to PCM, it's very important to have the HD cord that controls picture quality and sound

Tinny sound on tv


You might have a defective audio amp. One thing you can do is try to compare the impedances of the audio amp's left and right channel (tv off) outputs with speakers disconnected. any major inequality in (ohm) reading obviously will tell you so.

One HDMI input creates a sound problem - only faint and tinny sound.


Unless the jack is physically damaged, then the entire digital pcb would need to be replaced. Sometimes just the jack can be replaced, but that is a pretty tricky repair.

How can I fix the echo between my TV speakers and my dvd/blu ray player home theater speakers when watching a movie. Also, in the settings menu on the BDV E370 system do I have to select speakers only...


Easy, disable the TV speakers or turn its volume down.

Page 36 tells you how to sync the sound to the picture but you really shouldn't have the TV speakers competing (in stereo) with the Sony. (Page 56).

A) The TV speakers are probably inferior to teh Sony's
B) When you balanced the speakers during setup there was no 'with-the-TV-speakers-on' option. The image up front would suffer by adding an unaccounted for sound source.

Sound is hollow and tinny. how do i correct?


If its a smaller TV that's just how they sound due to the low profile speakers. If this is a new problem you can blow out dust with a vacuum and remove any impeding small pieces of metal with a strong magnet.

I have an RX-V663 audio sounds flat


Let's deal with the turntable sound first - unless it's a self-preamplified model you would have to get an external phono-specific preamp to use with this receiver. Without one you'll get microscopically weak, tinny sound from the turntable. Google "RIAA curve" to see why.

As far as the CD sound through the Blu Ray player... for one thing it is flat, as in two-dimensional stereo. Compared to genuine surround from a movie it would be a letdown.

Can you better define 'flat'?

Voices vs. sounds


If you are passing video thru the monitor out to the TV, this will go much easier. First Press the GUI Menu button on the remote. If connected to TV, on screen menu will appear. Go to Manual Setup then (right arrow on the 4 way with the ok in middle) Speaker Settings then Speaker Select then go to Center Channel arrow right again and make sure it's "On" If it is, then go back to the main speaker settings and toggle to Speaker Level. Then select center channel and arrow right turns volume up. If you still have no audio, post a comment and I can help you troubleshoot further. Hope this helps

Bass tone problem


Both of your problem amps were made in the '70's or earlier. It is entirely possible that the coupling capacitors are failing. This is an issue for a service center whether it is caps or something else, like failing tubes.

The good news is that installing metalized polypropelene capacitors will make those classic amps sound incredible.

Polk Audio RC55i In-Wall Surround Speakers (can't hear whispers)


I'd make sure that the receiver surround mode is set for one of the digital settings, such as Dolby Digital or DTS, and make sure that you have the center channel level adjusted to a level similar to the other two front channel speakers. I've seen/heard this happening when using dolby digital material & having surround set on something like 'hall' or 'stadium' or dolby surround, where only 4 channels are used & the amp has to 'mix' sounds to the left & right front speakers. It'll often sound like the actors on screen are talking out of the bottom of a barrel, with a hollow & tinny character to the voices.
