Question about SpeakerCraft Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Sound controls I have a Speakercraft powered subwoofer BassX10 connected to a Denon receiver. I don't have a clue as to how to adjust the front knobs to produce the best sound. The owner's manual doesn't really help me. I don't know where to start and how to know to keep from really messing it up. Thanks, Ann stella49@cox.net

Start by connecting speaker like the book-then you make setup for all your speaker and confirm that all in on status-check your cable for bad cable(short circuit-or open circuit)-you can insert the speaker one by one if you are in doubt that something wrong.

Subwoofer powers on ok, volume level stays at mid to high range. Adjustment on back has no effect or distorts sound a bit please help


If you have plugged the input to the LFE socket the volume control may not have any effect coz' its ment to be controlled by the AV receiver in this mode. Connect to the L/R scoket ( any one will do ).

Need wiring diagram for bass w x 10


You have not mentioned what equipment you would like to connect to this active subwoofer.
Assuming you have an AV Receiver, you will require a single long RCA to RCA subwoofer cable. Connect the left input (white socket ) of the subwoofer to the AV Receiver subwoofer pre output.
Leave the front crossover knob at 100Hz , Phase at 0. While playing an audio track slowly increase the subwoofer front volume to suit your taste. If you are using big floor standing speakers along with the subwoofer reduce the crossover frequency to 70Hz. Phase should be adjusted to blend the front speakers with the sub.bobhifi_6.jpg

It keeps turning off eventhough the back switch is turned on


You need to determine if its a malfunction of the sub or just due to a loss of input. And is it always in response to, say, over-enthusiastic use?

From the manual...

TROUBLESHOOTING

If you used the high-level (speaker) inputs and there is no sound from any of the

speakers:

• Check that receiver/amplifier is on and a source is playing.

• Check that powered subwoofer is plugged into an active electrical outlet and is switched on.

• Check all wires and connections between receiver/amplifier and speakers. Make sure all wires

are connected. Make sure none of the speaker wires are frayed, cut or punctured.

• Review proper operation of your receiver/amplifier.

If there is low (or no) bass output:

• Make sure the connections to the left and right "Speaker Inputs" have the correct polarity (+ and -).

• Make sure that the subwoofer is plugged into an active electrical outlet and switched on.

• Adjust the crossover point.

• Flip the Phase Control switch to the opposite position.

• If you are using a Dolby Digital/DTS receiver or processor, make sure that the

subwoofer adjustments on the receiver/processor are set up correctly.

• Slowly turn the Level Control clockwise until you begin to hear the desired amount of bass.

If you used the line-level inputs and there is no sound from the subwoofer:

• Check that receiver/amplifier is on and a source is playing.

• Check that powered subwoofer is plugged into an active electrical outlet and is switched on.

• Check all wires and connections between receiver/amplifier and subwoofer.

Make sure all wires are connected. Make sure none of the wires are frayed, cut or punctured.

• Review proper operation of your receiver/amplifier.

• Slowly turn the Level Control clockwise until you begin to hear the desired amount of bass.

• Make sure that you have configured your receiver/processor so that the subwoofer/LFE output is on.

I have a Denon AVR 3805 receiver. It does not have a Main Amp in or a pre Amp out in the back. How do I properly hook up the Bose 901 equalizer to this receiver? I use the 901 speakers as surround...


By properly, you must mean WITH the Active EQ.

According to this picture, you're in luck BUT...

http://www.audioholics.com/reviews/receivers/denon-avr-3805/denon_AVR3805_rear_lg.jpg

(Short answer from personal experience.)

There is no way around this part. Get a separate power amp for the 901's if you want to use them in a multichannel way or alongside non-901 speakers. A good 100-wpc amp will do. (I like Carver)

Connect the Active EQ between the Front pre-outs and the amp input. Run speaker assignment, levels, etc and have fun.

Helpful Hint: If you don't have sufficient between-speaker room for proper reflection off the front wall you CAN turn the 901's around and you won't believe the amount of air these things push! I have actually felt it ten feet away after explosions or crashing ocean wave sounds. Now THAT is multi-media.

Subwoofer no receiving power or signal


Take it to a real technician. Sounds like you've proven the internal amp is shot.

From the power supply. You can meter a power supply with a multi meter. As for the terminator; they rarely go bad. Chances are good that you have a bad receiver.
