HI,in the speaker set up menu on your amp there should be a 6ohm setting but if not don,t worry as it won,t cause any problems.You will have to set the levels for your speakers so they match each other to keep sound right.

HOPE THIS HELPS.
CABLE GUY.

Impedance setting on Yamaha AV Receiver


Hi. You can always use a Receiver with an output impedance that is lower than the speakers input impedance.Problems arise when you try to use a Receiver with a higher output impedance than the Speakers input impedance.

Receiver 6 ohms speakers 8 ohms......YES..
Receiver 8 ohms Speakers 6 ohms.......YES, WITH CAUTION

You risk to crash a set of speakers. In any case this will have a detrimental effect on the sound

I have onkyo reciever tx-ds898 no sound


Some receivers shut down automatically if a thermal overload is detected or more commonly if speaker impedance is less than specified, i.e, driving a 2 ohm impedance speaker with an output rated for 8 ohms. If you can get the receiver operating long enough, you may see a message indicating why it is shutting down

Hi,,My onkyo tx-sv828thx problem was it shows "protect" sometimes.then after 2 to 3 second its back to normal operation. What do you think the problem?can i do it by myself? anyway,i am using...


The protect message appears when the current powering an amplifier inside the receiver goes beyond the safety limit or the amplifiers overheat. So just check the wiring and the speakers impedance with an ohmmeter - each should be above 6 ohms
If they are lower then you have a short in one of the actual drivers of the Bose 901 speaker . If the impedance is OK then the Onkyo overheats, place it in a better position to increase the airflow thru it.

Wonding can you hook up 4 8omhs speakers to a dual center channel. rear plate on amp says 1 speaker 8 omhs min 2 speakers 4omhs min there are 4 posts in back if i hook up 2 8omhs speakers in parral to both...


You are correct

spks in p = lower than the rating of one

spks in s = greater than the rating of one

so 2 x 8ohms in p = 4ohms

and 2 x 8ohms in s =16ohms

Make sure that you do not connect too many speakers to the amp, and try to stay as close as possible to the amps specs.

Hope this helps, thanks for using FixYa

Bass speaker not working. Sub woofer connection not producing current to allow Bass speaker to work.Would like to try to connect to 6 channel set up but not sure how that's done since I have the speakers...


make sure speaker voice coil are still good...continuity checks will confirm this....as far as 6 channel hook up, you need to know what the lowest impedance allowed is from your system and then wire up your speakers in series /parallel to come up with a final impedance that will very closely match the systems minimum output impedance

Impedance must be matched to have a better sound performance. Althought, it has no problem b/w 4 Ohm and 6 Ohm impedance-it still work but the system may get hotter due to impedance mismatching. You can try and see how the sound goes.

Check SP cable for my Yamaha V365?


This means wrongly connected speakers. Check the receiver without speakers to eliminate any failure. The error should go away.
Now carefully connect the speakers again, take care not to short-circuit the receiver. Also check the impedance settings on the receiver to match impedance of your speakers (either 6 or 8 ohms).

Reciever turns off


Powering off usually points to issues with speaker setup. You should read pages 42 and 96 of the 606 manual.

Page 42 covers impedence settings. Check your impedence settings for your speakers. The 606 handles speakers from 4 to 16 ohms. There are two impedence settings on the 606 - 4 ohms and 6 ohms. Set to 4 ohms if your speakers are 4 ohms or more but less than 6 ohms. Set to 6 ohms if your speakers sit between 6 and 16 ohms. Incorrect settings can result in the 606 going into power protection after prolonged use or at higher volume.

Page 96 covers testing for unexpected power protection. You should switch off your AV at source and leave for an hour. Disconnect all cables to speakers and other peripherals (TV, DVD et al). After an hour turn on AV and turn volume to MAX, If the AV remains on, turn down volume to min, switch off AV and reconnect all devices. Make sure the speaker cables are properly connected and that no bare wiring is exposed.

Once you have done this switch on the AV and turn to volume to MAX. If the AV stays on then problem solved. If the AV switches off then you should contact your supplier.

Do all speakers need to have the same impedance? (Protect mode)


Amplifiers sometimes like to have "balanced loads" on them, and this may be the case with your unit, meaning yes, all the impedances should match.

Judging by the impedance numbers you provided, you should be all set. You really want to avoid having something like 2 ohms on the left side and 8 ohms on the right side - grossly imbalanced. I don't see any problems with what you're going to run.
