Question about RCA RT2910 Theater System

1 Answer

I Just recently bought this have it hooked up to my Computer through a Digital audio Coaxial cord . The problem is this 600 - Watt system is emitting less power than the 300 watt one it replaced that was hooked through a spdif - Red/White audio cord. Also the Sub Woofer seems to be rattling or breathing hard (can hear this from about 10 feet away) when certain frequency's are hit almost like it cant push enough air out. Any Idea's ?

Audio power is relevant only between the amp and the speakers. Check the volume setting of the source and any audio settings in the PC.

SPDIF is not Red and White. If anything it is a single coaxial RCA connector.

Wattage specs for comparison are pure fiction at this level. 10% distortion fudges the number upward.

Defeat any bass enhancement in the source until you figure out the level issue.

Will I be able to hook my altec lansing ada745 to my sanyo dp39842

The Sanyo DP39842 only has a digital audio out. You'd need a digital to analog converter, a coaxial digital audio cable, and then an RCA to 3.5 mm audio cable. Here is an example of the audio converter: .

I hope this helps.

How to hook up when you have no HDMI hook up on the DVD

So are you saying that you are using the component cables? What are you using for the audio? You should be using the coaxial or optical digital cable for the audio. Go into the menu and make sure that the output is set for component video and digital audio. For more information, or should you have any further questions, please visit my website at You may contact me through the website. Thank you.

I wanted to know if there is a way to hook up the sound from a Panasonic DMP-BD655P-K Blu-Ray player to my existing Yamaha DVX C310SW home theater system. I know I can hook the Blu Ray directly to the TV...

Yes this can be done. You have several options for audio hookup. Stereo 2-channel (white and red) RCA cables, digital audio (optical or coaxial) or HDMI. Your home theater must have the inputs available such as optical, coaxial etc. Typically the stereo 2-channel RCA is the simple way. Just connect from the Bluray audio outputs to the Home theater inputs (white and red) for stereo sound. Select the input on the home theater. For Dolby Digital 5.1 use optical digital audio cable (black port) or coaxial (orange RCA port) from Bluray to similar home theater input.

Hi need some help instaling audio system on my bmw e39 525tds,got fuel shockwave 800 watt 3 oms subwoofer,2 JBL gto936e speakers and 2 sony tweeters and toxic tx-600 amp,can you tell me what wiring i need...

Walmart or a Specialty Audio Shop would carry a basic wiring kit for your job at task. As for the additional amp, thats your personal preference. If the Toxic Tx-600 AMP is a 600w amp, then I would say that is decent unless you're looking to get tickets for sound violations.. if you live in a city.

I want to know if i can hook it up to the computer and if so how?

Depends on your PC's sound capabilities. The basic Green Audio L/R pair in the back (or Headphone Out on the front) can be adapted to RCA cables and run to any available audio input on the Philips.

If your PC has Digital Audio Out (usually coaxial-RCA-looking connector), run IT to the Coaxial Digital IN on the Philips.

Make sure the sound on your PC is configured correctly . Right-Click on the speaker icon in the System Tray (or find it in the Control Panel) and select Adjust Audio Properties. That should bring you to an interface with whatever Sound Card you have. Make sure you UNmute the sound and play around with the Advanced settings to select speaker types and volume.

Hint: If you're already using that input for something else it can be shared with the PC by installing a Y-adapter that splits the RCA cable to use on two inputs. The only caveat to this is that you can't have both inputs attached and turned on at the same time or there will be collisions of the digital conversation between the devices. I manage my own digital coax audio sharing of two DVD players by always making sure only one is turned on at a time.

On the digital input 1 have the coaxial cable hooked up to blu-ray player but i have no sound, but if i hook up optical i do have sound.. wrong coaxial cable

Possibly a bad cable, but not likely its a 'wrong' one. Any RCA-style cable will do for SPDIF coaxial digital signals. Try another one. Are there other Digital Coaxial inputs you could try to prove the function?

You may have to configure your Digital Inputs so the receiver knows Digital Input 1 is Coaxial.

Audio Issue

You may have tried this, but when you hook up audio out from TV to audio in on reciever, did you try the different input options for the reciever. Often times, audio in is an aux1 or aux2 setting on the receiver. If it is working with the DVD player, it is functional, you just have to get the wires hooked up and get the reciever on the correct setting. Also, even if you have TV audio out correctly configured to audio in AND on the correct input setting, the TV volume will have to be UP as well as the receiver volume. NOT ALL THE WAY UP (you'll blow your speakers), but up about 25% for you to hear it.

Is there any way i can hook upo my 360 to this system ? ( Philips DivX Ultra Home theatre system)


I'm guessing you're asking about the audio specifically?

Xbox 360 has a digital optical output so your system would have to have digital optical inputs for the Audio to be plugged.

A coaxial digital input (as seen on some Philips Cinema Systems) would not work unless you use something to convert it.

Here is a link to such a convertor:

Hope that helps.
