Not getting surround sound

Hey, I have just picked up this amp and 3 JBL speakers, a center and two rears. Problem is I can't get the center and the rears to work at the same time. When I turn on the Surround I only get the center speaker. I have managed to get some sound out of the rears but it is very faint and echoes. The audio connection is made from my rogers box to the amp via a digital optical cable.

I do not have the manual so I am working with trial and error. Is there anything you can suggest??

Even if I can get the same sound coming out of all speakers (not true surround) that will do.

Thanks

Problems with JBL PSW D110


The speaker level input option is designed for receivers that don't have digital output for the sub, used this way when you set to digital the speaker outputs only get the higher range outputs so won't reproduce much bass. To get the sub to work in digital mode you need to use the digital output (single RCA) from the amp to the sub

Friend gave me a jbl surround system to go with my 52" sony hd tv. It has four speakers. three sat 20 and one bass 20. going to a rca stva 3970 receiver. didn't have instructions to go with it.


You need two more speakers to get surround sound,ie> two front one center and two for surround,then you need a home cinema amp to run the speakers and decode the sound from your tv,sky,dvd etc,and the sub gives you your bass.

Hope this helps.

Missing center speaker


Yes, you can connect all the other speakers and not have a center speaker. It will not damage the amplifier. But be aware, that many of the surround functions will not sound good without the center speaker. In just about every surround mode the center speaker gets more audio to it than any other speaker. It would sound better if you took one of the rear speakers and used it for a center speaker and have one rear speaker output no connected. The rear speakers get the least amount of sound going to them in all surround modes.

I hope this helps and a Fixya! rating would be appreciated. After all, it is the only reward we get for offering people like yourself free help. Most people never even bother to rate our free help here.

Back speaker sound


Why would you only hook up one speaker for the rear channel? in 7 channel stereo, all speakers have 100% signal sent to them as "stereo" in Dolby digital, rear speakers are for "effects" not dialog. like a plane flying past you or a car driving by, that's when you hear a rear speaker. It also needs to be placed behind you, not next to you or in front of you. Unless you are using zone 2 & 3 the receiver's surround back will work. if you only have left,right,center,sub & rear; the rear speakers should go to surround speakers not surround back. If you still have questions, post a comment and I can explain further. Hope this helps

Verify that all cables are plugged in correctly. Make sure the rear and/or center/sub audio cable is plugged in to the correct port. On most surround sound cards, the rear audio port is black, the front audio port is green, and the center/sub audio port is orange. If you do not have a surround sound card, make sure you obtain the proper adapter (discussed in the next paragraph) or use surround sound emulation if your speaker system offers it. If you are not sure if you have a surround sound card, please check with the manufacturer of your sound card for details. Make sure your sound card supports the same amount of channels as your speaker system contains. For 4.1 systems, it should have a front and rear speaker jack on the card. For 5.1 systems, the card should have a front, rear, and center/sub, output. The card should be properly installed and configured. Please contact your sound card manufacturer for details. If you do not have a surround sound capable sound card, you can use the M3D button on the controller unit (if you own a z-560 or z-540) or use the source selector switch (if you own a z-5300 or x-620). If you do not have any of the models above, you can use an adapter to split the signal for the front and rear speakers. This type of adapter is a 3.5mm male to 2-3.5mm female jacks. You can purchase this adapter at your local electronic store. Please refer to your manual if you do not know if your speaker system can emulate surround sound. Try connecting the speakers to a portable sound device such as a walkman or portable CD player. Plug the speakers into the headphone jack, but make sure the volume is lowered so the speakers are not over powered. You can do this for both the front, rear, center/sub speakers to verify that they work. If the speaker system works on the walkman, then you are experiencing a configuration issue with your sound card. Please contact your sound card manufacturer. Check the system Volume Control located in the System tray. Make sure that the volumes are at a reasonable level and are not checked for Muting. Go here to get an operations manual for this setup. http://logitech-en-amr.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/logitech_en_amr.cfg/php/enduser/fattach_get.php?p_sid=d*11Q7xi&p_accessibility=0&p_tbl=9&p_id=2924&p_created=1126107772&p_olh=0 Good Luck
