Question about Audio & Video Receivers
These JBL speakers are not made for a home stereo reciever. It could be part of the problem.
I do know that they have a high frequency input and a full range input on each speaker.
I am going to guess that maybe you have them connected to the high frequency input.
Are you using 1/4 inch jacks connecting to the input of the speakers?
I don't remember these speakers having a input for wires.
You may have another issue using these speakers with that reciever.
The JBL speakers are 4 ohms each, it is very likely that the onkyo requires 8 ohm speakers.
Look on the back of the Onkyo where the speaker jacks are at and see if it says anything about the minimum impeadance.
The impeadance is the ohms. Most home recievers are not designed for anything less than 8 ohms. Some are, but most are not.
Using 4 ohm speakers on a system that requires 8 ohm speakers can cause damage to the reciever. Mostly at higher volume levels, it will cause the reciever to overheat and shut off, maybe short out a channel. It pulls 2 times the amount of current thru the output transistors as 8 ohm speakers.
Let me know if this helps you or if you need more help.
