Question about JVC RX-8010V Receiver

1 Answer

Inside speakers(1) and deck speakers playing (2) output is at very different levels

Just pulled this receiver out of storage and have a basic hookup...the in-ceiling speakers play at a reasonable volume at around the 40 vol. control setting. But to get the similar sound out on the deck I have to increase the vol. control to around 65 which of course means that I cannot have it on inside and outside...Is there a main speaking input/output setting that I can change? I understand that the outside ones will be a bit softer but didn't think it should be this drastic. Thanks.

The things that affect the outside vs. inside volume are distance and ohms of the speakers if the inside ones are 4ohm and the outside are 8ohm then there will be a drastic difference in volume, also if the inside speaker wires are shorter by 20 feet then there will also be a drastic differences in volume.

What you can do is have a separate amp for inside and out with the input coming from the same receiver. The other thing you can do is put an inline amp for the outside speakers with this you can also balance the volume.

When you have longer wires you drop more voltage across them then when you have shorter ones you also has losses due to electrical interference from lights and the household wiring. To combat this I would suggest an inline amp so that you can balance the speakers more effectively and drop out most of the noise (mostly hum that you hear at a higher volume) that you are probably getting unless you put on filters on the speakers. But if you want to keep it simple than you need a separate amp with a common input, this way as well you can control the speakers to have a different volume for different situations.

I took my Pioneer SX-450 Receiver and Pioneer CT-1040W Tape Deck apart to move it. Put it back together. Now can't get a tape to play.


After putting a known good tape in the deck, push play, if the tape doesn't move, try rewind and FF. If nothing happens, the deck has a problem. I assume this is a cassette deck. If so, I always try the thrift stores for a new(used) one. There are good bargains there.

Again...how do you hook up these 3 items...i have no manual...a Pioneer stereo tuner control, power amplifier, double cassette deck, and speaker...pioneer model #CX-770, CT - W 770, & M - 770?


This would be easier to help you with pictures but I will give you the basics. There should be an input that is labeled either cassette deck or line in. That is where you will plug in the cassette player (that is coming from the output of the player) The cords should be red and white for left and right audio. The back of the tuner should have an output labeled something like preamp out. That will be any number of types of connectors but you should be able to find the right cables. From that output put that in the left/right channel of the amp. It may be labeled something like channel 1 channel 2 input. The speakers will go to the output to the speakers probably also labeled channel 1 and 2. If you post pictures of the backs of all of the equipment I will get more detailed.

The left rear poineer speaker will not work, all other speakers will work and all are hooked up properly but no sound will come from the left rear. How do i fix this? any secrets


you may have a bad speaker. try connecting a different speaker output to the speaker and see what happens. if it still doesn't work, you have a bad speaker. if it does work, that output is probably bad and the output ic will probably need to be replaced. there is also a possibility there may be bad solder connections inside of the deck.

How can i test my rca output jacks with a test light? pioneer deh p3100ub. hooked up spkr, nothing. tried one rca plug to white(lt) and then red(rt). Unit has 4 rca jacks, 2 for subwfr and 2 for front...


:) the rca jacks have to be connected to an amplifier,, their signal is too lay to even light a bulb.. you have to connect it to a car amplifier and then from the amplifier to the speakers..

Just so you'd know,, once your deck plays and you hear music on your speakers through your normal speaker wires,, RCA jacks work..

Ok you have 4 jacks,, 2 subs and 2 front.. These should connect to a preamp,, which takes 4 inputs and allows you to equalize or adjust how the music should sound,, now from the pre-amp,, it runs to an amplifier,, thats powers the subs and another that powers the speakers.. Some amps have 4 inputs so you can use one amp for your subs mids and heights..

for example a basic music system is

1 cd player
1 pre amp
1 amplifier (4 inputs, 4 channel out)

you bridge 1+2 and connect this to 1 12" double coil sub woofer

the next 2 connect to 2 mid speakers example "rockford or ev 5 / 8 " and 2 tweeters for heights..

Thats a kicking tricked out basic car audio system,,,

Hope that helps you understand how it works..

UNIT HAS ALL POWER FUNCTIONS BUT OUTPUTS NO SOUND. ANY SUGGESTIONS. HAVE CHECKED THE SPEAKERS HOOKED TO ANOTHER UNIT SO I KNOW SPEAKERS ARE OK. MY SON IS BRAIN DAMAGED AND NEEDS TO HAVE SOMETHING TO LISTEN...


This comes to mind:
Did you perhaps connect the rca jacks to the record in instead of the play out?
Maybe the rca cable is not plugged in at all on either the receiver end or tape deck end.
Have you tried using a different rca cable?
Did you select the right input on the receiver?
You may try using a different input on the receiver.

I know these sound obvious, but they may fix the problem.

No audio output


Were you playing it very loudly when it died?

The manual is here for reference...

http://www.docs.sony.com/reflib/docget.asp?manualid=11654&template_id=1&region_id=1&DL=',600,560,10,10,'Manuals'

It discusses troubleshooting this problem on page 50.

When you turn the receiver ON does you hear a light click in about 5 seconds? That would be the protection circuitry turning OFF to allow the amplifiers to function. The delay is to allow the circuitry to stabilize before it sends any output to the speakers. If you don't hear a click the unit is Protecting the speakers due to malfunction somewhere.

If no click and no apparent messages try turning the speakers OFF using the Speakers button directly below the Power button (1/0). This will eliminate or point to external shorts as the cause.


Does the unit click after 5 seconds of Power ON with the speakers OFF? Isolate your shorted speaker or wire problem.


Still no sound at the speakers when you turn them ON?

We need to establish if there is any programming flowing through the receiver.

A quick basic check would be to tune an FM station, if you have a tape deck attached, place it in Record or Record/Pause mode so it can display the input signal levels. You should see the record meters fluctuating with the level of the program selected. If you don’t have a tape deck, run an RCA cable pair from the audio output for a tape deck to an analog audio input on your TV. Select that input on the TV and you should hear the FM station, or anything the receiver is configured to play. If it's silent then there is no audio signal circulating in the receiver to get out to the amplifiers.

If you hear the program on the TV but not through any attached speakers, then the amplifiers are all disabled for some reason.

If there is no audio flowing through the receiver the problem could be a switch in the wrong position, source not selected, muting on or a multitude of other things.

Let me know how this turns out.

Dont have no sound


if you have power in-check the following:
1-headphone jack is inserted inside pull the jack out.
2-master volume in low level.
3-mute switch or button is on-please make it off.
4-bad setup of speakers re setup again.
5-speakers cables are pulled out or disconnected.
6-wrong selection of input source(you must confirm what did you want to play).

What's the easy way to connect speaker wires, I have 7.1 and lots of wires going inside the wall and ceiling, hard to find out which speaker is which?


a wire is only a medium to connect the speakers with the amp/receiver. the thickest of all the wires there belong to the SUBWOOFER .rest all wires can be of the same thickness (gauge).each speaker will have 2 wires (one red ,one black ,usually joined together along its entire length)
the easiest method is the hit &trial method where you connect a pair(of wires) to the receiver output and play.(a speaker should be connected at the other end)
Like this select different speakers with different receiver outputs and connect .
i hope this solves your problem.

Amp going into protect mode


If you set the gain too high on the AMP, at loud volume levels some clipping or distortion of the output signal will occur. Most amps have a Circuit inside that detects this clipping or distortion and applies protection to prevent damage to the speakers and the amp. It would help to know if you are driving the speakers with a Line level output or using the speaker output from your deck. There are many things that can cause an amp to go into protect mode, and knowing a little more about your setup will help to solve the problem.
