Sounds like the voice coil has burnt out in the centre speaker. If you had wired it up wrong you would either be hearing the centre dialogue coming from another speaker or nothing at all, so a speaker defect seems likely

Hooked to surround sound, two front speakers, 4 wall speakers, 1 sub woofer. Restart unit and reduce volume unit is OK but normal talking is too low.


Voice tracks are usually routed to the center channel. You don't mention having a center channel speaker hooked up. If this is the case, then you need to go into the receivers setup menu and set it for no center. This will reroute the voice tracks to your front speakers.

CAN HEAR ALL BACK GROUND SOUNDS. BUT THE PERSON TALKING IN THE MOVIE IS ****.


check you center channel. Is the speaker hooked up correctly? Is the center channel turned off in the setup menu? Most voices in movies will come through the center channel

I don't know how to hook up the speakers


hooking up speakers is easy you if your terminals are red and black you just match them up black on speaker means hook to black on the receiver doing a wrong hookup can reverse the phase of the speaker cause a distortion and eventual damage to speaker and coil.if you are rtunning just a stereo that allows two speakers select speaker you want for left side and put that on left of the stereo and hook it up as left and same for the right and if you have a home theater you hook it all up the same but you hook up the center put it in center front of the room as far back to wall as you can but dnt cover it up it should be lower than the front left and right or the main left and right speakers.then if the5re is surround you put those like say you have a square room you put them in the corners on the back wall.if you have rear speakers you put them on the back wall.make sure all speakers excepty rthe center are level and equal distance apart

How to plug speakers up to amp


Depending on what system you have the answer could be different. I see a theatre system on screen so I will address that. You should have five speakers and an amplified woofer. Two speakers get connecte to the front left and right connections. This used to be standard stereo. Two speakers get hooked up to rear left and right. Keep in mind that they are talking about left and right from the listeners perspective. The final speaker gets hooked up to the center connection and should be placed on top of the viewing unit. The subwoofer should be connected to the subwoofer port and placed to the right of the screen from the viewers perspective. Hope this helps. Let me know.

I have the klipsch sub-10 subwoofer, making noise after use


it sounds like the sub is rubbing in the voice coil.
put the speaker in upside down to what it was before.
sometimes that extra bit of downward pull is enough to offset the error.
There are speaker reconing experts out there but it is cheaper to replace the sub itself.
the sub can be replaced for sure.

Im having a problem with my kenwood VR-7070 receiver.I have my DVD player hood up to it using an optical cable and s-video. The sound comes in digital sounds amazing but the souround sound music is so much...


No unfortunately this is the way movies are made. I know what you are feeling it is the most annoying thing ever. The only thing you can do is turn down all the surround speakers and turn up your center channel. the voices and talking are always output through the center channel. So you have to do a lot of messing around to get the best settings for you. I am an audiophile and I will never understand why they make the background sound/music in some scenes so much louder then any talking. Hope this helps if you have any other questions please let me know.
Thanks,
Lee

Just hooked up Coax cable; now talking is barely audible


is the center speaker turned up in the reciever speaker settings? each speaker can be adjusted to a level that is higher or lower or all the same as the rest. also is the dolby digital turned on in the reciever settings? and changing the surround sound pre set sounds can also improve the type of audio you are listening to in 6.1 surround sound

Audio receiver!


When I watch movies, most of the talking is directed to the center speaker. During surround sound, this gives a more realistic environment, with voices coming from the source (center where your tv is) and ambeint noise coming from the left/right corners.

Get a small center speaker to solve your problem.
