How to identify speakers on surroud sound system whe hooking up.

Most people will try there best to mark the speaker wires on their speaker system when they run them. That can be a big pain and if you don't mark the with a simple system it can be confusing. It will be more trouble if you did'nt mark the wires when you ran them. I have a very simple solution that works well. You don't need to worry with marking the wires at all. The easy way to identify the spearker you are hooking up when you are installing a system is to use a 1.5 vdc D cell battery. You may ask, why a D cell battery? It is pretty simple. If you have connected the wires to the speakers.With the + (possitive)terminal connected to the side of the speaker wire that is marked with a stripe. Sometimes the stripe is white or black and sometimes no stripe at all. If it does not have a stripe it will have small ridges along the side of the wire. Stripe or ridges we call that the tracer. Place the wire with out a tracer on the - (negative) terminal of the speaker. On the other end of the wires youwill need to strip the insulation from the two conductors of the speaker wire. Hold one of the wires to the - (negative) end of the D cell battery. the +/- indications are located on the side of the battery. The bump on one end of the battery is normally the + (possitive) end of the battery. Touch the other wire to the + (possitive) side of the battery for a second and remove. Repeat this several times and note the poping sound the speaker make. Listen for the location of the speaker that is poping. Hook the speaker to the terminal on the amp that matches the location of the speaker that pops. Move to the next speaker and repeat. Do not worry this action will not harm the speakers. They will see much more than 1.5 vdc when you drive them with the amp. The next time you need to install speakers try this tip. You can use it in every installation and it will speed the install process. I hope you find this very heplful.

When car is hooked up I get visuals, lights. etc. but no sound transmits from the stereo to speakers. I have checked all speaker connections and RCA jacks, along w/ amp and subwoofer and all are connected...

The illumination wires (orange, not yellow. Yellow is for 12 volt in) would not have an effect on sound. Either the internal amp is blown or you have a shorted speaker which is preventing the internal amp from turning on. Disconnect all speakers and hook a KNOWN GOOD one to an output. I f you get sound, the problem is in the car, if not, the problem is in the radio. If you accidentally crossed two of the speaker wires or let one touch a chassis ground, you blew the amp.

Make sure the speakers are hooked up properly and also that the sound card drivers are installed, you can verify this by going into the device manager. The main speaker wire has to be hooked up to the output of the computer sound card.

If the sound card drivers are installed and the speakers are hooked up properly and your still not getting sound, try the speakers on another computer that you know has sound. If the speakers work then its a sound card driver issue on the original computer. If the speakers don't work on another computer then you know the speakers are bad.

Install cd for monsoon

What makes you think you need special drivers for your Monsoon speakers? Do other speakers work properly when hooked up to your PC? Borrow a pair from somebody else if you don't have any other speakers you can try, and check. If they don't work either, Monsoon drivers are not your problem. I'm not saying nobody ever needs drivers for speakers to work with a computer, but normally, drivers for the speakers are not the issue if you're not getting sound through them.

The sound card driver and sound settings in BIOS, sound settings in Windows and for the sound card, and physical issues about the way the speakers are hooked up or whether the speakers themselves are functional are much more common sources of trouble than drivers for the speakers.

Start your troubleshooting process with this webpage:

If that one doesn't seem to address your issue, try websearching for other options with a phrase such as: troubleshoot no sound PC speakers.

Replacing factory speakers in a 2-door 97 Cavalier

Just make sure they are the same size as your stock speakers and they should just fit right in no customizing needed. For a 1997 Cavalier it's 4X6 in the front and 6X9 in the rear. Shouldn't be too hard just a couple screws and hooking up the existing wire to your new speakers.

No volume

The Bose system in the Z is wired to control the entire car's speakers. Each speaker has its own amplifier, and the OEM head unit puts out a line-level signal to each amp. Your Clarion unit puts out speaker-level signal (in effect, an amplified signal), into the Bose amps, and it's probably overdriving them and putting them into shutdown.

Your best bet is to replace the Bose speakers with aftermarket speakers meant for a speaker-level drive (which is what I did in my Z, and never once regretted it). If you do so, you'll need to run new wires to the speakers, or if you use the OEM wiring, you'll need to unplug the amps and run the wires from the amp harnesses directly to the new speakers. I think there is an adapter harness you can use that will tap into the line-out jacks on your Clarion, so that a line-level signal can be sent to the Bose speakers - I'd do a google search for "Metra harness 300zx" or something along those lines (Metra makes the lineout harness adapters - I use one in my Audi).

Amp is on, Subwoofer works, but no sound.

here is a short test you can try, remove the rca audio cable from the amp & connect a diskman or toher audio o/p device that you can hook up with the same rca wires, turn on the amp & see if you have sound. you can also remove the speaker wires from the sub & using multi meter read the ohm's of the sub, most subs are 4 ohm. Hope this help locate your problem
