The first thing to do is to double check that the speaker wires are properly connected.

This type of system has seperate outputs for the highs and the lows. If my memory serves me right, you have color coded speaker wires that are red/black, blue/black, and maybe grey/black as well.

Make sure the red on the receiver goes to the red on the speaker on so on.

One other thing you can try, but usually does not help with this problem, is to unplug the unit from the wall for about an hour. Then plug it back in and turn it on. This resets the microprocessor.

If the highs are out, you probably have an electrical problem in the amp. It has different amp IC's for the highs and the lows. meaning one IC is for highs and another one is for the lows. They also have a relay that activates to turn on the speakers. sometimes you can have a bad amp IC causing the problem, other times you may have a bad relay or a bad transistor or diode that turns on the relay. There are other problems that can cause this as well.

If you have checked the speaker connections and made sure they are properly connected, you really do not have any other option unless you have the proper equipment and troubleshooting skills as well as the schematics to figure where the real problem is.

Sorry for the not so good news, but I work at an authorized Technics repair center for over 17 years and have repaired many of these type of problems.

This one sounds like it needs professional help.

A typical repair for an amp problem can cost as much as $200 or more because the amp IC's in these units are very costly.

If the problem is not an amp IC, it may only cost about $100, it just depends on exactly what components are faulty.

The good news is that Technics makes a pretty good product. They are a subsidiary of Panasonic and it is the high-end products for them. The Panasonic home stereo systems are not up to the same standard as the Technics. They have many more common problems, which is a sign of poor engineering.

If I can be of more help please let me know. Good luck with this one.

I have an technics su-g75 and all of a sudden I lost all sound from the bass speakers I only have treble and mid tones that play out of my speakers

As far as I know, that model doesn't do biamp functions, so it wouldn't be the amp being the problem, although it could have caused the problem with the speakers. I suspect you have blown your woofers. It's odd if both L+R cabinets went at once, which leads me to question weather the amp send a subsonic signal to cause the failure. That assuming you weren't playing more loudly than the cabinets were rated for. I suggest checking the woofers for being b lown, and then taking the amp to the shop for a checkup.taking the amp

My technics amp SU-G75 keeps shutting off and reads OVERLOAD when played over the volume of -40 to -35. I kept playing around and it works fine when the bass dial is on half, but more bass shuts it off. I...

some amps are made more for low ohm loads (bass) and some are made for high impedence loads (mids/highs) and it seems you are asking too much from your amp.

Hello all, Whilst using my XP510i for the first time today, the amp has simply died. Didn't have the music on loud, was only in the green lights section of the amps display, but whilst trying to make...

The amps on the unit have probably died. Did they replace it for you? I'm becoming alarmed at the number of units just dying for an $800 piece of equipment.

Voice of both left and righ speaker is not equal

Can say I've seen this on a H/K. First swap the speakers left to right and right to left if the sound is low on the same speaker its the speaker not the receiver (could have a driver out). Could also be a dirty output relay.

Is the sound good other than it being low?
Is it that way with all inputs?

Hi there sa gx303P stereo amplifier/tuner technics ...the cooling fan for the power amplifier works only on a somewhat strong signal .....if you play soft music at low volume the cooling fan...

These units are designed to only run the fan when necessary. If the unit is overheating, there is a problem in the detection circuit. This is a relatively inexpensive repair. If you are getting overheating when running at a low volume, it suggests that the speakers are not matched to the amp. In other words, the amp is expecting an 8 ohm load and is being presented a lower ohm load. This makes the amp work harder and generates more heat. Check the speaker wires and make sure that they are not frayed or crossing in any manner. Also, verify that the rating of the speakers is correct.

Update this with what you find.

My 17 month old daughter pushed in the mid and tweeter on my home stereo is there a way i can fix it without getting new speakers a trick of the trade if you will ???

Hi - As a last resort you can try sucking the cones out with a vacuum cleaner. Choose a "low" setting (usually there is a hole you can uncover in the hose" and go carefully!

Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!

I am building my own speaker for he first time.i have 2 subb woofers/mid and tweeter but only ave three way cross over what would be the best and safest way of wiring up the speakers?

Hi first thing: do you have a passive or active crossover??
  1. Passive crossover: you can connect the two output together to your subwoofer to have in the same time the low bass and the mid range of frequency.
  2. Active crossover: NO solution you have choose one out put of your crossover, i guess the best is the low output, but the choice is in your hand try the the two output(low/mid) once and choose the best for you
Let me know, bye

Yes you can use the speaker output in conjuction with the rca pre-outs...but depending on the wattage of the amp, there may be a big difference between the loudness of the front speakers over the rear speakers. If you have a 4 channel amp you can put the rear speakers on the amp also and lower the input gain for the rear speaker. Or if you have a 2 channel amp, you could use a passive crossover to filter out some of the bass to the rear speakers since they are smaller, this would help prevent over-driving it is normally too much bass that distorts and blows a speaker. I'm not sure what you are asking about the hi-rear preouts vs the mid front pre-outs. If you decide to use the amp for the fronts you should be able to connect the amp from the front preouts of the deck. Hope this helps.
