Maybe I'm misunderstanding the problem...

One speaker? Why would you have one speaker attached to A or B? A and B represent speaker pairs and are driven by the same two amps.

It's also not clear if you're saying the speaker is failing or the channel. You CAN swap them to find out.

Either way, the amps are common to both speaker pair connections so if only the B pair isn't working at worst you have a switch problem.

My TX-SV 424 showes a protect sign what shoud i do.


PROTECT SIGN MOSTLY HAPPENS WHEN THE INTERNAL OUTPUT IC IS SHORTING, OR THE OTHER REASON COULD BE, THE SPEAKER WIRES ARE CROSSED TOUCHING EACH OTHER, THIRD AND LAST OPTION IS SPEAKERS, TRY TO TAKE ALL SPEAKERS OUT THEN PLUG IT ONE BY ONE....RESULTS WILL BE OUT, IF NONE OF SPEAKERS ARE DEFECTIVE THEN ITS YOUR OUTPUT IC SHOULD BE CHANGED AACCORDING TO THE SAME TYPE AND NUMBER

I just hooked up my old Onkyo TX-8511 receiver to my bose speakers, which is also hooked up to a subwolfer. When I turn the volume up the system goes into protect mode. Any solutions.


Just check your speaker cabling again. Make sure that all of them are seated properly, none is touching each other or the body of receiver. Rewire if necessary..
Are you using banana plugs for connecting speaker or just directly. Some times even a little tiny wire touching the receiver could trigger the protect mode. Be careful, since protect mode is sometimes not fast enough and it could blown a few trasistors in the power circuit.

Otherwise, do your bose speakers play out load on other systems?

Powered Or Unpowered Subwoofers For Onkyo TX-8511


Greg- Powered subs are better than non-powered subs (also known as passive subs), anyway I see the TX-8511 has no sub pre-out on the back panel, so you need to decide what sub you will use and run from the receivers left and right speakers output into a subwoofers speaker in from speakers then back out to speakers, look at the back of a subwoofer and you will see like 4 sets of speaker hookups 2 in and 2 out, what this does is takes the low end or bass and drops the signal to the subwoofer then takes the mids and highs out to your left and right speakers, unless your regular left and right stereo speakers have large woofers a sub is the way to go.
