And you don't think the speakers are wired wrong. Re-investigate or reposition the speakers you THINK are Front to the Rear and go on from there.

I am looking for the FM mini antenna with push pull connector for ARS2I portable speaker system wth AM/FM radio and IPOD/IPHONE deck Acoustic Research - If you can not provide it please give me the...

This may be a pretty difficult task - since it is very small and looks similar to the AM antenna jack. We might think we have found the FM plug, but when fitting to the radio, learn that it is really the AM plug.

You may do better contacting Acoustic Research to obtain an FM antenna replacement via their customer support webpage. The product information page devoted to your ARS2I lists no accessories available. You can freely view / download the manual for the ARS2I here if you need a copy.

I hope this helps & good luck! Please rate my reply. Thank you.

Picking up beeping tone through the speaker system, it cycles every 2 min. Not coming through TV speaker system, only through the Acoustic Research souround sound system.

Hi, I'll be honest-that's an interesting symptom I may never have heard of. Although it is very reminiscent of what is called a test tone, used by high end audio manufacturers to help consumers determine that their speakers are placed in their prospective positions and wired correctly. This is usually achieved thru the remote control if there is one, if no remote needed for system then there may be a setup switch of some kind somewhere that has inadvertently been engaged. I hope this was of some help, please write back if so, or even if we can be of further assistance. And thank you for choosing FixYa, Good luck- Prodzilla.

In regard to my Marantz AV Surround Receiver, Model number SR5005, I cannot get the Zone2 speakers to play. I have followed all the instructions, and nothing works. Does anyone know what I need to do...

have the same model. just got it to work. but, struggling with one part. here's the scoop. 1. Plug your second zone speakers into the SURR BACK/AMP ASSIGN speaker outputs on the unit. 2. You need to "amp assign" the speakers to zone 2 by pressing AMP, MENU, select SPEAKER SETUP, AMP ASSIGN and scroll to ZONE 2 - this will force the sound to the speakers that you plugged in. 3 - Turn on Zone 2 (press Z2, press ON button on remote). Use the UP/DOWN arrows to select the input for Zone 2. I've only been successful in selecting USB and plugging my iphone in for zone 2. For some reason, I cannot get the SAT (cable box) to play in both zone 1 and zone 2 at the same time. But, I can get SAT in zone 1 and USB in zone 2. Hope that helps. Let me know if you can solve my issue...

I turn it on and it says "protect" and then automatically shuts off ! I want to know why it does that and if it can be fixed ?

Let me give you some theory as to why this is happening to your receiver. The "protect" mode is designed to respond to several related conditions:
The first reason is a wiring fault between the receiver and the speakers such as a strand of speaker wiring touching the opposite conductor so that there is a short circuit. If this happens the receiver will overheat and then shut down to protect itself. This is a good thing. otherwise you simply have a very expensive repair on your hands.
The second reason happens when the receiver is inside a closed cabinet and overheats because not enough air is going through it to keep it cool. So it shuts down in this circumstance.
The third reason happens when the receiver is playing loudly beyond the limit of it's design. In this case, it will overheat and thus shut down to protect itself.
Here is a diagnostic procedure for the first reason above:
What we are doing, in this case is looking for a shorted out speaker system, or wiring to speakers, or cables or components that are connected to the receiver that have a short circuit. This is what I would do if I were called to your house to debug your sound system.
1 Disconnect one set of speakers at the back of the receiver and turn the power button on again. See if it stays on.
2 If not, remove the next speaker and keep repeating the test.
3 If it still stays off, disconnect all of the equipment connected to the unit, one piece at at time.
Somewhere along the line, the receiver may not shut down. If that is the case
identify the the offending cable(or component)and replace or service it.

To correct the second reason simply leave the cabinet door open while the system is playing. The only problem with this solution is that if you don't have cabinet, it makes no sense.

To correct the third reason. Watch the volume level while using the system.

I hope this helps you.

My reciever plays then cuts out

They don't overload from missing speakers. I'm curious, what buggered the one speaker?

Examine all of your speaker wires carefully to be sure no unintended contact is made between them and anything else.

Is "overload" being displayed?

“OVERLOAD” starts flashing on the display.

Speakers are overloaded because of high volume.

1. Press STANDBY/ON on the front panel to turn off the receiver.
2. Stop the playback source.
3. Turn on the receiver again, and adjust the volume.
Speakers are overloaded because of short circuit of speaker terminals.

Press STANDBY/ON on the front panel, then check the speaker wiring.

If “OVERLOAD” does not disappear after turning on the receiver again, unplug the AC power cord, then plug it back in again.
If speaker wiring is not short-circuited, contact your dealer.

When I play CD only the right speaker is play but

first- is the tuner set to mono or stereo? if stereo, stop using the analog rca jacks and use an optical (toslink) cable to transfer your audio to your receiver. almost all cd players have this output and the same with the receiver. better still, if you are using a late model cd or bluray, and your receiver has hdmi inputs use those as they will transfer both audio and video with one cable.

I have wireless speakers and the transmitter stopped working. Nothing happens when you plug it in--??? It's only a month old. AW872

Hi I also post in here , so that you can let me know how it goes.

Try unplugging the transmitter from power adapter, if it also has batteries remove them. Also unplug transmitter audio cable.

Then remove batteries/unplug adapters from speakers.

Wait few minutes and reconnect the system.

This is a proper hard reset, and can fix minor problems.

If when you re connect the transmitter does not glow, or you do not have sound on one or both channels then there is a fault.

Check the transmitter audio cable, a short in there can cause troubles.

If you find no problems , then unit is defective, as it is under warranty contact Acoustic Research to validate the warranty here and get the transmitter or the whole set replaced.

Pioneer sx-205 gives a overload warning and cuts in and out when tuner or cd is playing

Does it play normal on any sources, or do you only have the tuner and CD for available sources?

There are many different things that can cause this type of problem.

It could be bad solder connections on in the amplifier circuit or power supply, it could be a bad speaker or a bad output channel inside the receiver if this happens only when it gets turned up loud.

The overload warning happens when the amplifier circuit has excessive current or DC voltage on the outputs. Unfortunately the only way to determain if it is the speakers is to change them with other known good speakers and see if it still happens. But before buying any speakers you need to have the receiver ruled out as the source of the problem.

It can also go into overload if you have the wrong type of speakers connected, or too many speakers connected. Each speaker jack should only have one speaker connected toit. If you are using for example, 4 speakers connected to the "A" speaker jacks meant for just 2 speakers, it will create a load to the amplifier that the amplifier is not rated for.
Look on the back of the receiver and it will have listed the proper impeadance for your receiver. Most will say:

8 ohms or more "A" or "B" speakers
16 ohms "A" and "B" speakers

That means you must use 8 ohm or higher ohm rated speakers if you are using only speakers"A" or only speakers "B", but can not use 8 ohm speakers if you are using speakers "A" and "B" at the same time. Then they must be 16 ohm speakers.

Two 8 ohm speakers in one speaker jack is a 4 ohm load, that is why you can not use more than 1 speaker per speaker jack.

I hope you found this information useful, and if I can be more help just let me know.
