This answer is generic:

The output stage most likely has damaged IC's and transistors depending on the exact design. This may also include the pre-drivers since most of these designs are 'DC coupled through the signal path.

An experienced audio service tech should be able to service this for you. Problems with blown output stages may tend to be expensive to service.

Front speakers 5.1


Turn up the volume on the left or right speakers or turn down the center channel volume to meet your preferences. There should be a setting for that in most receivers.

Dear Sirs, I have a Pioneer AV Receiver model VSX-817 and is connected to Monitor Audio Speakers (Fronts: BR5, Center: BR-LCR, Rears: BR1), Sub: MS309 (Mordaunt Short). I have connected each front...


Did you remember to remove the shorting link on the MA BR5 speaker terminal ..When you biwire the speakers you should remember to loosen the speaker terminal nuts and remove the shorting link plate between the HF and the LF terminals or you will short the amplifiers two channels together through the link. And modern amplifiers will take a lot of abuse at low volumes but at high volumes the protection circuit will turn off the device.

Hello,I'm trying to conect 4 speakers(Bose 161,4-8ohms,50w each) and 2 speakers (JBL cf100(3way speakers),8ohms,100w each) to rceiver Pioneer VSX-455, I want to conect all of them at the same time.please I...


Well if you look on the back it plainly says speakers should be between 8-16 ohms.

It has facilities for 2 pairs of fronts (A and B) which could be run concurrently if they met the >8-ohm spec.

The JBL's would work best as primary front speakers.

If you wired the Bose in series with each other, they'd work as one surround speaker 'pair' electrically, maybe even sonically if you arrange them across the sides and/or rear. I'd experiment.

You'll need a separate amp for any center or sub speakers.

Our two left speakers, front and rear will not


Check the connection on the back of the receiver. Check the balance setting, make sure that it's in the middle. Try another mode like stereo, you should hear left and right front only. Also, if your receiver has an on screen menu, check the dB levels for the front and rear left speakers. Good luck!

Clark, you MIGHT have a simple problem here. Let's keep our fingers crossed... This problem generally has more to do with the speaker WIRES or their IMPEDENCE than anything else, even though the receiver displays "AMP ERR." (Technically, it IS an amp error, but the source MAY not be the amp!) The very FIRST thing we need to do is check to make certain ALL of your speakers have an IMPEDENCE of 8 OHMS. (Pioneer says 6, but that's not necessarily a good recommendation, particularly if you listen LOUD.) Virtually all speakers of even modest quality will include this specification on a label on the back of the speaker. You CANNOT run more than (2) TWO speakers with 4 OHMs impedence on ANY amplifier (technical discussion too long!) [NOTE: Your receiver has internal overload protection systems to prevent permanent damage. On SOME Pioneer models, these can be "reset" but you can't do it yourself. Your dealer or authorized service center must do so.] But, before you take it in for service, there is one more "test": check for shorted and/or mis-connected/disconnected speaker cables/wires. 1) Visually inspect connections at the receiver AND speakers. You might find something obvious! Look for bare wires touching one another. Again, you must look both at the receiver, AND at the speakers. 2) If everything looks okay, then disconnect ALL of the speakers at the receiver; and reconnect and test them one at a time (at relatively low volume.) For example, reconnect the left front speaker, test the system; THEN add the right front, test the system, and so on, ADDING one more speaker each time - FIRST MAKING SURE EACH OF THEM HAS AN IMPEDENCE OF AT LEAST 8 OHMS! IF there is a short (or bad speaker) this will help isolate it. Hopefully one of these simple fixes will get you up-and-running. Good luck!
