I have a good KEF K160 tower (one speaker) for sale. I purchased the pair and one had a blown woofer. After trying to replace/repair, I purchased a pair of KEF C40s and been happy ever since. The good K160 looks and sounds good. Grill and cabinet in good shape, both black finish. Other speaker cabinet is in poor condition. I'll sell the single (or both if you want to pay shipping) for $75. (Plus shipping, around $50 USA ground delivery) These are hard to find.

I have just bought some Tannoy MX1 Speakers to hook up to my AVR-2500 receiver & am wondering what quality/AWG/Impedance rating etc Speaker Wire I should purchase to connect them?


Any speaker wire from an electronic shop will do the job. The bigger the wire core (dia) the better. Talk with the techie for more advice.

I have a Yamaha HTR 3063 reciever and I just got a PSW 2000 Kef sub and I can't get the sub to WORK NO MATTER WHAT I DO PLEASE HELP


That is a potentially great combination. I have a Yamaha receiver but I am not familiar enough with Kef to know but is it possible your receiver expects to be connected to a powered sub. Are you sure the Kef works by itself? Have you checked to see whether the receiver subwoofer output works with another speaker? Could receiver mode selection be a factor? My Yamaha switches various functions on and off depending upon your preference.

For what it's worth, the troubleshooting section of my Yamaha manual says a subwoofer no sound problem can be caused by selecting MAIN LFE/BASS OUT on the SET MENU when Dolby or DTS material is being played or selecting SWFR when a 2-channel source is being played. Something has to work!

When my KEF home theatre subwoofer is maxing out on bass, it often makes a loud popping noise. Should I be making some adjustments to reverb, volume, or something else?


Hi,
Yes you should make adjustments.KEF makes very good products, however if you don't handle this you will have to replace or service it.
1 If the woofer is very close to you, relocate it further away. The reason being is that the lower the frequency the larger the wave form. The lowest waveforms will become louder.
2 Adjust the high frequency cut off to be at 80Hz. This should eliminate boom. Higher Sub frequency tend to muddy the sound.
3 The sub should have a subtle effect in music. So the relationship between it and the speakers it augments the sound of should be seamless.
4 If you are playing Rap or Reggie music and you like to play it loud. Add another sub into the system and locate it NEXT TO the KEF Sub. In this fashion the two subs will reinforce each other's energy. They will "couple" thus multiplying their energy considerably.
Hope this helps,
Best Regards,
Mark

OVERLOAD


First of all the KEF is a powered sub which means that it wants a line level signal NOT a speaker level. Send the signal from a tape output or pre-amp output to the sub input. The overload is because the impedence load for the speaker output is too low and looks like a short to the amp. Continued attempts to connect the system as described will result in damage to the output section of the amp.

Please let me know if you need more info.

Voices drowned out by background noise.


Not a suggestion, but I hope there is a solution.
Recently bought an LG HDTV that has a setting that should increase the voice over the background. If it does, I can't notice the difference. I guess they can probably measure it electronic.
I've had your same complaint for years, without a good solution. Best so far is to use headphones.
I have no idea why film people add all the extra noise. Most of it is not even real.

The problem was actually at the speaker. The speaker I was using was a Kef speaker and it was missing a metal bar running across both negative terminals in order to power both the tweeter and woofer.

Speakeres killer


Are you paying attention to the power rating of your speakers? Your receiver has a high power capability and would be quite capable of destroying speakers with inadequate power handling capabilities.

By the way, the Tivoli was a great place to be in 1963 for a young guy!
Hope it still is . . .

Because you have connected speakers that are not the same ohm you had damaged the output transistor or IC of your set, you have to get it replace and get the right the speaker
