It's telling you that based on its diagnostics the speakers are wired Out of Phase with each other. Carefully recheck the polarity of the speaker wring: + to +; - to -.

    I have the same problem (with 5.1 setting) and checked the polarity. It was correct, but I still have the problem.

    Page 39 says you may get an erroneous message regarding polarity depending on speaker type and the environment., and that it may be no big deal.

    The implication of the diagnostic is that you shoud reverse one of the polarities relative to the other and try again. I'd do that just to see what happens and how it sounds.

What is the error code W-1 Phase mean and how do I correct it?

"W-1 Phase" error, when running the YPAO, means that one or more of the speakers in your home theater set up is out of phase. This happens when the + and - wires are not consistent throughout all of the speaker connections (red and black terminals). Make sure your red/copper color wire is connected to the "red" speaker terminals , and the silver color wire is connected to the "black" speaker terminals. This error can also happen even if all of the speaker cables are connected correctly but the acoustics of the room are creating the out of phase sound the microphone is picking-up.

I have the alpine cda-7894 in my 1994 mustang. I have the mach speaker upgrade. When I play my music the sound has no depth and sounds very flat with no bass, but if i change the balance to the right or...

You have a problem with the phasing of your speakers. This will happen if on or more of the speakers are installed incorrectly. To solve this, you must check the speakers and find which one of them does not have the positive and negative connected to where it should be. When connecting speakers it is crucial that the speakers (positive and negative terminals) are all connected to the corresponding (positive and negative) speaker outputs of your head unit. Now you can enjoy your sound again.

I tried installing a set of Def Tech Pro Cinema 600 speakers to my Yamaha RXV667. They recommend two methods. One is to connect the subwoofer through a cable using the LFE port on the receiver. I've done...

I'd go with the second method of connection for this receiver if you want to use automated calibration that requires discrete control of each speaker. I'd expect calibration errors with Method One as you're not just monitoring the sub when you test it; and the L and R fronts would have sub chiming in during the test, too. That would surely confuse the automation.

You (or the receiver) wouldn't be able to adjust the sub independently of the fronts that way.

I'd also be a bit leary of their claim you can set your speakers to Large. With only 3-1/4" drivers I wouldn't expect much in the way of realistic bass-handling or power dissipation.

From the manual...

"We encourage you to experiment with the various settings on your subwoofer, settings on your decoder, and hook-up options as described until you find the best combination for you."
