I have this system and while this isn't a real problem for most, it is for me. The speaker cables on the main speakers are not long enough to suit me. I'd like to buy extension cables to make them longer but I don't know if it is possible since the cable end in jacks and I've been unable to find any information elsewhere. Is it possible to buy extension cables for these speakers? If so, any idea where?

If it has a bi-amp, you can connect the speakers to it. By the amplifier, if it's a stereo with bi-amp, be sure that it has at least 400 watts and up in order for the speakers to turn out great, if a receiver like a integrated amplifier, it may have like 2-10 connections, you can connect the speakers all together if it has more than 3 connections, if below 3, you may need to take the speakers apart and make it 3 way by connecting one wire to the tweeter, another wire from the tweeter to the main or mid speaker then one more wire from the main or mid speaker to the sub.
If the hum is a low note continuous hum, its at 'mains' frequency. The power cables to the unit (or inside it) are getting too close to the cables that carry sound signals to the center speaker. The mains power naturally hums and if mains wires are near to audio kit wires they pick up this sound and play it through their system/speakers. Check the wires to and from it make sure the connections are good and firm. Seperate these wires by at least one inch from any power cables, use tape to hold them down and away from each other.
Fuses blow when there's an overload. This is often caused by faulty speaker wiring. But the main problem you have will be that the main power amp will have failed. You will find this on a big heat sink. It could be transistors, or a power amp IC, picture below of what that could look like.
1. Unplug the two audio connectors from the base of the main unit and free the external speaker cables. 2. Press in each of the bottom clips towards the centre of the main unit and lift the speakers up and out of their mounting key-holes. 3. Remove the six recessed T10 screws holding the back of the unit on. 4. Unplug the two ribbon cables between the main unit and front panel.
The CD mechanism should now be accessible and it any trapped CDs can be removed.
It's one of three things things: First, examine where the speaker wires are plugged into the receiver. Are any of the copper strands touching one another? If so, remove the excess stripped wire and reinsert it. Problem solved.
Test two: bad speaker. to test, swap the speakers (hook the right speaker to the left speaker jacks and the left speaker to the right speaker jacks). If the RIGHT side now cuts out, you have bad speakers.
If the speaker on the LEFT jacks still cuts out, your amplifier is going bad (which could cost between $50-$200 to repair).
Protet mode is a special diagnostic mode that starts when a fault is detected.
When in protection mode the unit is prevented from starting by protection circuit, so to prevent further damage.
Check the speakers and speakers wiring, a contact in speaker wires, or faulty speakers can send the unit in protection.
Try unplugging power cable for one hour or so. then connect cable back
and see if you get rid of protect state. Sometimes accumulation of
electrostatic charges inside circuit capacitors can kick in protect
mode. In that case unplugging the unit from main for some times can get
rid of electrostatic charges, and reset circuits by draining power
If that was the problem, you will not get Protect when plugging back power cable.
If you do all the above and still get Protect, then there is a real fault.
In that case the unit may be disassembled and tested to find the fault.
If that is the case I suggest contacting the manufacturer at the number
listed on the owners manual, or asking a quote on repair to a local
i have a sony stack system i had put away for a couple of years, i have now put it back together, but when i wire both speakers up, the sound go s to a point then cuts out, whith a mesage on the front saying protect, it i take one speaker off! nothing happens, can any one help please? thak you for your time.
Before you replace the speaker, swap the left and right. If the sound problem follows the speaker, the speaker is bad. If the problem remains on the same side, the problem is with the unit. Lets assume that the problem is inside the unit. In that case, the problem could be just a bad connection. If you can solder, check the main board around the speaker terminals for poor solder connections. If that is not the problem, update this and I'll provide additional things you can test and check.
