If the only problem is the tweeter, and the woofer is still working, you do not have a problem in the amplifier. The problem is the speaker. The tweeter is blown or you have a problem in the cross over network in the speaker.

You can always switch the speakers and connect them to the opposite channel. You can do this very easy at the back of the receiver where the speaker wires are at. Put the left speaker wires on the right speaker and the right speaker wires on the left speaker. If the same speaker still has no tweeter you know that the speaker is the problem.

The only way this could be a problem in the amplifier is if you have two different sets of inputs for each speaker, one being the low end for the woofer and the other being the high end for the mid range and tweeter. That would mean you have two sets of speaker wires going to each speaker. Each set of speaker wires would have a positive wire and a negative wire for a total of 4 wires going to each speaker. I don't remember this system being set up that way, but I could be wrong.

I hope this was helpful, you should be able to get the speaker fixed at an authorized Kenwood repair center in your area for a reasonable price. As a guide, my shop only charges $25 for the labor plus the cost of the tweeter to replace a tweeter. Any other shop should be similar. Kenwood does sell replacement drivers for almost all of their speakers.

Has 2 positives and negatives do I hook up to same terminals or seperate


The extra terminals might be there so you can bi-amp the speakers. (Drive the woofers and tweeters with separate amps). This also allows you to use only the woofers in the units as subs with different high frequency units; as in a home theatre system.

Left Speaker not working


if you swap the speakers and the dead one moves,than it is the amp that is missing a channel,in your case,it is the speaker.
if you try the good speaker in both speaker outputs,it should work on both to confirm the dead speaker theory.
there may be a broken wire in the speaker from shipping.

Installing a pioneer home theatre dvd/speaker system.


On page 36 of the Pioneer users manual, it describes how to set your audio for HDMI interconnect. Follow the directions, and hopefully it will work. You can down load the manual from the Pioneer web site. Google "speaker system HTZ171 DVD". Click on the Pioneer site for your system and look for the download on the right side of page.

Is my tv audio doomed or will the home theatre system work anyways.


some devices these days have a built in volume control, try using your remote for which ever dvd player or satalite bix you use, on push the volume up button on it while you have the volume on the tv maxed out so that you will be able to tell a defference if it works or not.

Tweeter does not work in surround speakers


If you are trying to find out if tweeters are ok, place them to the mids
and listen. if good, then trouble lies in the individual amplifier inside ur set.

Good Luck

Additional speakers


two options use the RCA audio out (red and white) on the back or side of the tv to connect to a home theatre system also you could use the headphone jack to connect to a home theatre system or some sort of external speakers. other than that it doesnt look like you have too many options on that model of tv if you need the owners manual here is the link for an online version.

Installation Help


This means that you have purchased a three piece home theatre system. Two tweeters and a sub-woofer. Assuming you are using a Stereo player (Tape/CD/DVC)you have to connect the Left Output of the Stereo placer to the Left Input at the back of the Sub-Woofer and the Right output to the Right input of the subwoofer by cables. Then take tweeters and connect them to Right speaker and Left speaker output at the back of the sub-woofer ( note if the speakers are marked L/R, then connect them to the subwoofer output accordingly. In case you are using a 5.1 player, then only connect the front right and front left to the Right and Left input at the back of the subwoofer. You are and you can now start playing your music or movies and and you will get theatre quality sound.
