Now you have to try and isolate frist your problem .is it your speakers? your cabling or your receiver? check all your cables for any loose connections. check your speakers for possible damage, you can try using another set of speakers to your receiver and see if it does the same thjing and wont work. or try also your speakers in another set of receiver.

I only have two speakers. Which speaker outs do I use to receive true stereo


the ones marked with L and R from left and right. and if it says front, use the, because the back and middle channels won't give enough power.

Can you have just 2 channel by hooking up to right & left front speaker posts on 5.1 surround


short answer.....no. If you hook more than one speaker up to a single channel, it will lower the impedence and will damage the amp. You can hook up multiple speakers by using a speaker switch box between the speakers and the amp. This will match the impedence and should keep the amp from blowing.

I have a Sansui 2000A Stereo Tuner Amplifies that powers up but has no sound. the fuse for the 220-250V 2A was blown and replaced. The speaker fuses look good. Should I replace them too or is there...


If the fuse was blown on the 220-250 V side, I am assuming that you are in the UK, if you aren't , but are in the US, change the power setting dial/switch on the back to 100-120v and you might be good to go. Also, I know this may sound silly, but make sure that the speaker selector switch is pressed in or set to a speaker set ( A or B). Love the Sansui gear, have many complete systems myself!

Sansui 221 stereo receiver comes on, but no sound. Yes the wires are plugged into the receiver. When first turned on sound came through the speakers, then I noticed that the lighted back drop started to...


Since this receiver is old-school stereo-only from the pre-subwoofer-era HOW are you driving the sub? Please refer to ITS manual and connect it properly. The speaker outputs for this box are for single speakers only.

Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

I have an old Sansui 400 receiver. I get no sound from the left channel--both A and B speaker options. The speaker and wires are OK, because they work when hooked to the right channel contacts.


The problem seems to be the left transistor part of the unit. Try this:change A versus B speakers, asuming speaker A was working properly. If still speaker A, now connected to left output does not work, you will probably have transistor malfunction on the left channel of the receiver. Any electronic store will substitute the left transistors.
Good Luck.

I don't know how to connect the speakers to my insignia receiver.


Well, this is a two channel (stereo) receiver. If you have two speakers, look to rear of the unit and connect right speaker to the right output terminal and vice versa with left speaker. If you have four speakers, there are an option if the receiver has systems A and B of speakers set. Do the same with B system and listen to all four speakers using switch at the A+B position. Good

Powered Or Unpowered Subwoofers For Onkyo TX-8511


Greg- Powered subs are better than non-powered subs (also known as passive subs), anyway I see the TX-8511 has no sub pre-out on the back panel, so you need to decide what sub you will use and run from the receivers left and right speakers output into a subwoofers speaker in from speakers then back out to speakers, look at the back of a subwoofer and you will see like 4 sets of speaker hookups 2 in and 2 out, what this does is takes the low end or bass and drops the signal to the subwoofer then takes the mids and highs out to your left and right speakers, unless your regular left and right stereo speakers have large woofers a sub is the way to go.
