Question about Audio Players & Recorders
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.

Hi Trim God,
I do not reccommend that you push the Pioneer speakers over 100 watts. The jenson will already drown the car with bass through your pioneers so much you will want to turn off the bass boost when playing some low bass hip hop songs. It changes from one venue of song to another, so I just keep the jenson bass boost off and use my head unit to adjsut the sound to fit my listening prefences. I am telling you man, you will be blown away . Hook up the pioneers straight to the Channels,. do not bridge. I put Subs in my truck though. I used the Pass output to send the audio to me Jenson 2 Channel 600W amp. I drive one 10 inch enclosed JBL Class A/B Sub. I bridged the output of the 600 W amp to the 10 inch sub in my Z28. The pioneers never get drowned out. I did smoke my 2 channel Amp one time. and also took out a MTD 10inch sub. I am talk shooting flames and smoked the whole car up. I think if you bride the XA4150 to the pioneers, you will have the flaming smoke problem in no time.
