If you already check the output of your Amplifier is good then the problem is the speaker.Check the resistance of the speakers, if no resistance, then it already busted,or maybe the connection of speaker wire to the cone is loose or crack try to check it out.Then if you check already and it tight no crack ,then the problem is in coil winding of the speaker,it needs to rewind...

Hope this may help,

How do I reset a yamaha rx-v493 receiver?

Disconnect any speakers from it and see if it still turns off. If it doesn't, then you have a shorted speaker or speaker wire. If it does still turn off, then it would need to go in for repairs.

Just simply, what speakers do i use with a YAMAHA RX-V 493 RECEIVER

ANY that are nominally 8-ohms and can handle around 100W RMS. No other limitations. That's why they have specs.

First of all, here is the main ONLINE SUPPORT page for your model:

And here is a direct link to the ONLINE USER'S MANUAL for that model:

To view the Support Page or the Owner's Manual with Operating Instructions just use your mouse to click on the link, which is the underlined and highlighted text just above. This will open a new web browser page automatically for you and allow you to view the information at the website indicated and the contents of the Owner's Manual.

You may need ADOBE READER installed on your computer to read PDF documents.
You can download this free at WWW.ADOBE.COM if necessary.
Click on the DOWNLOAD ADOBE READER button on right side of the ADOBE home page when you get there, then follow the onscreen instructions to install the software on your computer.

You should just be able to use the TAPE REC AUDIO OUT (L/R) jacks on the back of the Yamaha 493 unit as your secondary amp's input signal. You might even be able to use the VCR AUDIO OUT (L/R) jacks as well. See page 8 of the manual for a detailed diagram of the rear connections on your set.

I hope that was helpful to you, good luck.

I have a yamaha rx-v493 reciever and no speakers what should i get that wont blow and wont empty my wallet

Of course you know you're asking a question that could attract more opinion than useful facts.

If you watch the volume and buy efficient name-brand multichannel speakers with REAL bass-handling capacity you'll probably love the sound without endangering your speakers or your ears.

As it is distortion more than raw power that kills speakers you need to keep away from pushing the amps beyond their RATED power (roughly 70 wpc into 8-ohms, @1khz, <.04%THD. I'm a little concerned that the spec in the manual qualifies it as only 1khz instead of the ore honest and meaningful 20-20000 hz it states for the RX-V393.

An under-powered amp will kill speakers faster than an over-poweredf one as it will enter its high distortion region much sooner.

Play-it-by-ear is good advice. If the amps sound strained, back off the volume.

Your room size will play a huge part in the perceived loudness while your household's aesthetic sensibilites will limit the size and visibility of the speakers. Compromise between form and function is almost guaranteed.

Being a long-time audio enthisiast/collector, set in my ways and unwilling to bow to appearance at the cost of the sound, I use full-size (70's and 80's era) Bose speakers (901's and 301's) throughout the room and augment them with a couple of huge subs and large Kenwood 777 center speakers. It ain't cheap or pretty but it rocks movies and music.

I would recommend you do some research into "home theater speaker recommendations" and read some user comments for the various offerings out there. You'll be in a relationship with your A/V system for a long time. Take the time to get it right.

Check the settings on receiver in the SETUP menu / HDMI / Audio. Here you can choose Amp (sound goes from the speakers connected to receiver), TV (receiver is muted and sound is routed via HDMI to TV) and Amp+TV (sound goes from speakers and also to TV).
Also check in OPTION menu / Signal Info that receiver is receiving sound in recognized format.

I want to use my 901 speakers with the yamaha rx 797 receiver and also my bose 601 in same room can i do that?

I wrote most of this for a different receiver, but if you account for minor differences to your receiver this will work just fine.

There's good news and bad news. The bad news you need a separate amp because a multichannel receiver with Bose 901's attached as recommended for a standard stereo receiver2_bing.gif will only sound right in STEREO on stereo analog material. The other speakers around the room are not designed to receive its Active Equalization and if you engage your Tape Monitor you will NOT BE ABLE TO HEAR DIGITAL sources at all. Tape Monitor is for analog stereo material only and on modern AV receivers it disables any digital inputs so you really can't use the Tape Monitor circuit or attached devices for modern digital sources. However, you can still employ the various DSP options to spread 2-channel analog source material around the room. I do.

The good news. I have a setup similar to what you want to do and it works great!

A separate stereo amp for the 901's was my solution. I run a Carver AV-406 (5-channel amp) for my 901's in Front, 2 Subwoofers2_bing.gif and the Rear Surround channel, with the Active EQ between the receiver Front L&R Outputs and the 901's amp channels. My receiver controls everything and just drives the Center and Surround speakers2_bing.gif.

You could get by with just a stereo amp for the 901's. A Carver M-200 is a good efficient amplifier2_bing.gif that would have you cooking just fine (2x100W). Run it with the Active EQ between the receiver Front L&R Pre-Outputs ** and the 901's amp channels.

** Front Pre Out (or one of your analog Tape Outs) >>> Bose EQ Amplifer IN, then
Bose EQ Amplier OUT >>> new amplifier IN.

Attach the 901's to the new amp, set its volume to Max and run through your receiver's speaker level setup.

Write off the Tape Out as an input if you use it to extract the Front L&R channels. DO NOT monitor it or you'll chop the 901's out of the signal path AND kill any digital source audio in the receiver.

I would like to know how to connect my Bose 901 to my Yamaha RX-V765 AV Receiver.

Ahhh, the good ole Bose 901. (I like those)... And you want to connect them to the Yamaha RX-V765 AV receiver. That should be a piece of cake. I assume you only have two Bose 901 cabinets. If so, you simply need to connect one end of your speaker wires to the terminals found on the 901 cabinets, and the other end of the speaker wires need to go to the Front Left and Front Right speaker outputs of the RX-V765. The RX-V765 is a 7 channel surround receiver. Weather you run it as a 7 channel theatre or as a more classic 2 speaker configuration, you will want to run the 901 cabs from the Front L and Front R speaker outputs, unless for some reason you want to specifically use them for any of the surround channels in which case it will not harm anything if you use them for surrounds - it's just that if you're simply wanting to use them as your principal speakers, you want Front L and Front R.
So connect them as I explained, power the receiver up, put on your favorite CD and enjoy!
