Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Hi, I have a pair of Mordaunt Short MS15 (8 ohms)speaker which is having a very soft sound on one side. I have measured the impedence and found that it is just around 2 ohms. Need your advice what should i do next. By the way i can't take a look inside the box even after i have dismantle all the speakers screw as it was tightly mounted in the box.

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..

I need to know how many ohms this speaker should measure on my digital volt/ohm meter, i'm getting 2.1 and 2.4 ohms.


hi
You speaker is dual coil one. Each coil have an impedance of 4 ohms. When these coils are connected in parallel then the ohms will be 2 ohms and in serial it will be 8 ohms. slight variations will show in digital multimeter when you measure the ohms. use the lovest ohms range in you meter to measure the coil impedance.

I have kenwood car stereo.it shows protect mode..soo what is the main problem? wand what is the solution? pls help


Hi, the unit enters protect mode when the output impedance is too low causing the power transistors to draw too much current. A short may be internal or external to the head unit. The thing to do is first disconnect the speakers to see if the unit will come out of protect. If this does not work, the short is internal, and the head unit must be repaired or replaced. If disconnecting the speakers DOES resolve the short, then the speakers and wiring must be checked for a short. The easiest way to do this is to use an ohmmeter at the speaker connector. Check the impedance of each pair of speaker wires. The impedance should be between 4-8 ohms. Anything less than 4 ohms may cause the unit to protect, depending on the exact design of the unit. If you find any wire pairs to have less resistance than the others, access the speaker to check the impedance of the speaker alone. If the speaker has an impedance of 4-8 ohms, the problem is a shorted wire. Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

My kenwood headunit is saying protect and i dont know how to reset it and no wires are touching how do i fix this


Hi, this is usually caused by a short in one of the speakers or the speaker wires. Take the connector off the head unit and use an ohmmeter on each pair of speaker wires to check impedance. If impedance is less than 2 ohms on any pair of wires, check the speaker impedance for that pair. If the speaker impedance is low, replace the speaker--otherwise replace the wires. Please let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Hi i have a pair of celestion k15t-200's i need to know the impedence on these bad boys also are they 200 watts max or r.m.s ? thanks


Hi, With Celestions, it will be the RMS rating. I have one of these and it has "8 Ohms" stamped on the edge of the dark grey edge of the magnet, in black ink, so barely visible. Check around the magnet for any signs of print, it may be faint. They wouldn't necessarily all be 8 ohms. An 8 ohm speaker should measure about 6ohms on a multimeter (as the rating is AC impedence and the meter measures DC resistance). A 4 ohm should measure about 3 on the meter.

Sony STR-DB940 Receiver Speaker Impedance Question


Whats the rating on the Plasma? How many watts at 4 ohms? If the plasma is rated 100 w at 8 ohm... hanging a 3.4 ohm load would put a lot of strain on the plasma's output amp. At 3.4 ohm the amp would be trying to delive close to 200 watts at full power. But it depends on how hot you normally run the volumn. Remember an amplifier output is AC volts. 1 ohm of resistance is close to a dead short. The amplifier would have to work its *** off to supply that type of power and would probably burn the output op-amps. If the outputs burn & it pumps any DC current through the speaker wire..the speakers would be toast...if not catch on fire. Try to keep the speaker load at or very cloe to the plasma's output load rating. Also if the plasma doesn't state it will handle loads down to 2 ohms...It probably won't.

Insignia NS-R2000 receiver


Check the impedance ratings of your speakers. Sherwood, the actual manufacturer of the NS-R2000 receiver, suggests that you use speakers with an eight ohm impedance if you have only one pair attached. If you have two pairs of speakers attached, the impedance rating of each pair should be sixteen ohms.

This is because Sherwood wired the receiver such that an additional pair of speakers is placed in a parallel circuit to the first set. When this is done, the impedance (resistance) of the load seen by the amplifier drops. As resistance drops, you get closer to a short circuit (no appreciable resistance).

Many other receivers wire the speakers in series, which causes the impedance to go up.

Personal experience seems to suggest that the amplifier is OK with a four ohm load on it. It does run warmer with a four ohm load, which is what you'd expect. It's when you have multiple sets of four ohm rated speakers that you will get into trouble, as this means the receiver only sees a two ohm load. This will cause overheating and shutdown.

At this point the power transistors in the amplifier may have been damaged. It may require repair. Fortunately, replacement parts are readily available (though not from Sherwood or Insignia). If it continues to shut down, stop using it. You could end up burning out your speakers.

Only tinny sound coming from the speaker MS904


The "tiny sound" may be a blown woofer you are only getting sound from your high section.
