Question about Speakers & Subwoofers

1 Answer

New (old) house with stuff installed when we got it

Just moved into a house with several small JBL speakers installed around in various rooms and bundles of speaker wires disappearing into the walls, and also a big JBL subwoofer sitting in a closet. How can I figure out the impedance of the speakers so I don't mess up my receiver; how do I know which wires go to which speakers, and how do I hook up the subwoofer since my receiver has one subwoofer out port and the subwoofer has multiple inputs? I'm not an audiophile so be gentle with me, please. Thanks.

    The pieces involved are a JVC RX-6042 receiver, the little speakers are JBL Sat10, and the subwoofer is a JBL Bass15.

IF YOU HAVE THE SAME AMOUNT OF CABLES AS SPEAKERS HOOK THESE UP TO YOUR AMP THEN SUB TO SUB OUT PUT ON YOUR AMP WITH A SUB CABLE OR PHONO THAT REACHES FROM AMP TO SUB.SET AMP TO ALL CHANNEL STEREO OR MODE THAT SENDS STEREO TO ALL SPEAKERS,ALSO SET SPEAKER SIZE IN SETUP OF AMP TO SMALL AND SUB OUT PUT TO SUB ONLY.YOU SHOULD GET MUSIC AROUND THE HOUSE.IF SOUND IN SAY BEDROOM IS NOT AS LOUD AS BATHROOM USE THE TEST TONE TO LEVEL OUT EACH SPEAKER.

HOPE THIS HELPS.

The 15" speaker in my JBL EON 1500 IS NOT WORKING. . IS IT POSSIBLE TO BLOW A FUSE OR THE CROSSOVER CIRCUIT OR SHOULD I GO RIGHT TO THE SPEAKER AND OHM IT OUT?


Check for voice coil resistance. Should be around the stated impedance rating. Assuming it is ok, then move the cone carefully back and forth along the magnet, if any rubbing the coil has been damaged. A damaged coil is not repairable - you replace the driver.

Jbl eon 518s power trip on stabilizer/transformer


hell no thats a fire hazard.. I am thinking that the surge is more that that unit can handle..surge is the extra power needed to start up an electrical piece of equipment..surge can easily double the amount of power required for startup..may need a new powerstrip with a much heavier rating..

Hi. I just bought a new JBL On stage micro III. The problem is that when I put my Ipod on the dock the sound only comes from the iPod and the speaker doesn't produce any sound at all but when I push...


Have you made sure the dock is compatible with the iPod version you have? If you are having to move the iPod around, this may be because the dock isn't built for the iPod you own.

It could also be a technical fault that the dock is loose. Take it/send it back to the shop and explain your problem.

I installed a brand new tweeter in my JBL EON 15 G2 & the new tweeter blew. What else could be the problem?


These are "powered" speakers and any little bit
of distortion can be amplified enough to "blow" it!
Also the amp could be "shorted"! Have your JBL
dealer test it!!!

JBL EON 15 G2 clicks and pops


my son and i fixed an eon a decade ago that had this problem. we swept a sine wave through the audio spectrum and discovered it started barking somewhere around a low D on the piano.
Turns out the mains connection was intermittent right where it enters the eon from the wall. Soldered the ac power connections and the problem went away.
