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.

How do i get my speaker to work at high volume with out them cracking,popping destort


If you are using the factory installed speakers they aren't made for the wattage output of your receiver. Factory stereos only put out about 5 to 10 watts. If you want to play it really loud you need to replace them with speakers that have a higher wattage that what your receiver puts out, which is a maximum of 50 watts

Can I use this receiver with my 50 watt max speakers?


Yes.
However; there are quite a few factors that are going to effect the performance you'll get with this equipment combination while ensuring you won't damage them. Speaker design type and what you'll be listening to with them are just the basic of basics.

Do not attempt to drive additional bass. It is probably best that you adjust the bass with the tone control to roll it back below input level.

If you hear distortion of any kind, it's too loud.

"im no proffetional at this". Really?

If you looked at the manuals for either product you would NEVER find a recommendation to use one amplifier's speaker input to drive the LINE LEVEL (very small) input on another amplifier. Speaker outputs are for driving speakers or amplifiers designed to accept speaker-level input (like some self-powered subwoofers). In no case is the power of the originating amplifer BOOSTING the power of the driven one.

You should do some reading on how amplifiers work before you blow something up and come asking for advice on how to resolve it.

My jbl control now speakers high keep blowing ...why??? im using it with harman kardon 3490 amp, this is the 3rd time i would be getting them repaired...


Little speakers like these won't dissipate a lot of power without blowing and real bass isn't their thing. At best they might work out as satellites. The 3490 and your listening habits could be too much for them.

There are a multitude of user settings that can affect the apparent loss of bass you describe. Since you mention it is relevant to a soundfield choice that sort of eliminates hardware problems.

Find the SET Menu and set everything under SOUND according to your actual speaker configuration. For the purposes of set up, consider the word LARGE to mean "CAN handle substantial low bass" and SMALL to mean "would distort or be destroyed by substantial low bass".

Under LFE/Bass Out, the Front/Both setting addresses the sharing (or not) of Low Frequencies with Large Front speakers. I recommend BOTH if your front speakers have large woofers or are otherwise bass-capable (since physical size isn't everything).

Run through the speaker Distance and Level adjustments. The LFE/Level will have a huge effect on perceived bass so check it out.

Check the Dynamic Range. It's vague about what optimim is, but avoid using MIN. I'd try MAX or STD for expected loud listening.

Run Low Freq Test to match the sub to your other speakers.

There are lots of opportunities in this beast for MALadjustment. It's your responsibility to understand the settings you select.

Does onkyo HT-s3100 supports 4 Ohms speakers from JBL(control 1)


Palaboy is incorrect. JBL Control 1 speakers are 4 Ohm 150 watt speakers. He's probably thinking of the Control 1x speakers which are 8 ohm 80 watt speakers.

If you hook your Control 1s to that Onkyo, it won't sound great and could cause the receiver to overheat and trip the protection circuit if played at high volume.

Partial sound from my JBL E60 Towers


Are there 4 inputs on the back of the speakers? If so, you either need to hook up all four, or connect the upper and lower inputs to each other. The speakers come with gold plates that connect the upper and lower inputs, but you can just use speaker wire to connect them. At least that is what I did on the used set of speakers I bought when one plate was missing.

you may be using an equalizer? try to pop-up the volume with all tone controls in flat mode. see if it still cuts off. if this is the first time youencounter this then something must be wroing with either your speakers or your amp. unless your ventilation is not good enoughg, you can also try placing a blower on top of your unit to cool it down

My 2003 STR-DE995 goes into "PROTECTER" mode


hi roy for starters hooking up more then 1 speaker to 1 input makes the total impedance higher\lower then the reciver "sees" there for u r causing the amplifier work hard and warm it up for no reason attach each speaker to 1 inlet look on the speaker for level of resistance (4 Ω, 8 Ω) and adjust the reciver for that level in that inlet if u want morn power ull have 2 connect the 2 amps in line as you sed, although the Bedini is "old-school" im sure it will do just fine and then u can crash ur whole house down from endless power... its difficult to say without any parameters what kind of connection will be the best result, so just try them all and see what u like the best keep in mind that loud music is hearting ur ears and if ull keep up this way ur wont be able to hear your child not to say when you will b older.... good luck windman
