How to test your speaker

I have a maddenning problem with my 5.1 home theater system. The deneon 1601 yes its a little old, am goes into auto protect mode occasionally and now its gone into auto protect at all times . It was connected to KEF Cresta 1s, cresta2, kef centre and PSW100 . When i took the amp into deneon in the uk, they found no fault and said it could be a speaker problem. I took the speakers to the KEF dealer and they coudlnt kind anything wrong with the speakers. I am now aiming to change the amp to a denon 3805 but dont want to risk blowing it if the spakers are to blame. |Is there any way to test the spaekers at home before i go and buy a new amp? i an not very techie I have just recently changed to an ONkYO TX-SR 805. I cannot get any sound fron B & W ASW100. I removed the cable from the receiver and touched the middle terminal. I did the same test with a B & W 601 Sub not currently in use. same result no sound while connected or disconnected to the Onkyo.

Check sub buy pushing cone in gently if you hear or feel a rasping sound the sub is blown,if not check for a fuse where the power cable goes in as this may need replaced.Also make sure you have the sub plugged into the sub pre out and not the six channel input.
PS did switch on the sub in the speaker set up in the menu?
hope this helps.

SOURCE: how to test your speaker

If the wire is bear ( no port connections ) then you should be able to try the speakers on most stereo systems. If you have not got the right connections on the back of you stereo then ask a friend if you could try it on there?s. But if the wires have got port connections the only way you can test them is if you can unplug your amp and still have the other speakers on. If your going to get a new amp then why not get some new speakers to go with it.

Awia speaker ok for home thaeter


Just about any speaker will work for home theater. As long as it makes sound.

Of course, you will need some type of surround sound processor (like a surround receiver) and other speakers to connect to the front left, center, front right and surround connections.

Some speakers will work better than others.

I will not get into any specifics because there is WAAAAY to much information to get into. Do a little research on home theater systems and how to design, hook up etc.

You (we) still don't know if the speaker or electronics are at fault. Swap the speakers left-to-right. Use test tones to test all channels. Could be a loose speaker wire, too.

My home theater system will not come on at all.


It is not so easy to probe into to find a protection fault condition. The fault can be your output drivers- the MOSFETS/IC's fitted for both the channels, Use a meter after disconnecting to check for short in the drivers. Disconnect the positive and negative voltages to the output and see if the protect changes. Even a fault in the preamp stages that drives in high current into the output can shut the Amplifier. Sometimes this can be a noise like a HUM or HISS before the protect works. Faulty capacitors in these circuits also can cause similar issues and needs close observation.
You need to confirm and replace the specific stages or outputs. If not there can be issues in the mother board, maybe the protect circuit by itself is shutting off due to a faulty bias , maybe a leak in any voltage/current sensing circuit. Also disconnect the speakers and test, if the protect is off then check for short on the speakers.

Hi :) Im technology challenge but follow directions well can you please assist me with connect my bose cinemat ii with a blue ray dvd and my samsung lcd tv?


Hi there,

Well if you are using both SCART connectors, a test you can perform, is to connect the A/V output of the blue ray/dvd player (the audio Red/White - only) to your Home Theater System and see if you can get the picture on the TV and audio through the Home Theater System. If this works, then an alternative is to purchase a simple A/V switch, that you can switch the audio to the Home Theater System when viewing a DVD and then switch back to the TV audio source. Please follow the below link to get a audio switch -

If there is no power at all, then try bypassing surge protector, check power cable, and check if power cord is fused.

If unit has power but does not start, then it is on protection.

Protect mode will kicking whenever a fault is detected.

Causes that can start protect mode are:

Electrostatic harges on internal circuits.
Leave the unit unplugged for power for one hour or so, this will allow discharge.

Bad speaker wiring.
Check speaker wiring, try unplugging and plugging back, or start after removing one speaker at the time.

Internal fault.
Internal fault is the natural cause for protect mode. If all the above did not work, then the problem is a blown component or an internal fault. In this case the unit must be taken apart , tested and repaired by an experienced person.
If the unit is less than one year old, or if you want to get service, call Sony at the phone number listed on the product documentation.

Regards.

No SOund for my TR-2810 Theater Research System


Easy sound check, if you have two other known working speakers connect them to see if you get any sound. If you dont then its either the wire is Bad or possible bad connection on the amplifier speaker outs. Confirm connections are properly placed. Try again with test speaker. Basically just verify the known so the unknown can be uncovered, metaphorically speaking. Do this and you will be one with the speakers. Muawhahahaa!!!

Not to look down upon your speakers, however realize these are those junk ones getting sold out of vans in home dopot parking lots throughout the country or at least in my neck of the woods. I was approached by one of these cheap speaker selling vans a few years back. In fact I have a friend who had some of these sitting in his living room. Said they were an old roommate's speakers. I said let's give these shitz a listen and boy did they stink. All I remeber was asking if the bass was up. This was an onkio amp and said yes and they sounded like crud. Unplugged and disconnected within minutes. Garbage!!

In summary do your research before purchasing, question the unquestionable before believing anything. This reads beyond speakers. Best of wishes.......
