Speaker buttons don't function correctly

The Speaker A and Speaker B buttons select pairs of speakers. If you have connected a pair of speakers to the "SPEAKER A" terminals on the rear of your Onkyo receiver, you will hear stereo sound when the Speaker A button is pressed on the front panel. If, for some reason, you wanted to connect a second set of speakers in the same room or perhaps another room you would connect those speakers to the "SPEAKER B" terminals on the rear. Pressing both buttons on the front panel would send sound output to both sets of speakers

My multimedia speaker doesn't work. has no sound. could it be the wiring harness?

First Check that your speakers are powered on. On your desktop go onto your bottom task bar to the right far end and open the arrow which shows you a speaker sign. click on the speaker sign it will open up and show you the audio device that is in your computer. Check that all volumes and speakers are on, check that the speakers and controls are not muted. If everything is okay here then go to the next step.

Then go to your computer desktop and check on 'My Computer' right click on your mouse go to 'properties' the 'systems properties' dialog box opens up then you go to 'hardware' panel and click on it then press on 'Device manager' button. You will see a whole list of the devices in your computer. go to Sound, video and game controllers click on the + sign to open it if it's not already open. Check on the speaker signs you should some drivers and devices something like Realtek High Def audio. if there is a question mark on any of the devices then it means that the device drivers are not loaded. Look for the drivers and load them.

My amplifier cuts out and displays the message "check sp cable", what does it mean?

Hi there,

It simply means to check your (sp)eaker cables. It is likely that one of your speaker cables is damaged or not correctly connected. This is causing an overload in the receiver and the cut-out indicates the receiver has gone into 'self-protect' mode, to prevent damage to the internal components.

This could happen if you have cross-wired + and - to one or more of the speakers. It could also be that a cable to one of the speakers has been partially severed and +/- are shorted together or it could be as simple as one of the speaker connections having become detached. Speaker connections are polarised positive + and negative - the same as your household electrics and need to be wired to the correct poles.

To fix this problem, you should initially check all of the speaker connections at both the receiver and speaker ends. Make sure everything is properly connected and that + and - on the receiver are correctly wired to + and - on all speakers. If all of the connections are correct and the error message persists, disconnect each speaker one at a time, reset the receiver and test again.

If you disconnect a particular speaker and the error message no longer appears, you have found the cause of the problem. Examine the cable for any sign of damage and replace the cable. If there is no visible damage, it is still advisable to replace the cable for this speaker as damaged cables are not always visible to the eye.

Please check all of your speakers as above, then let me know if you need further assistance. The message could be erroneous and may indicate a fault with the receiver.

Hope this helps.

I tried installing a set of Def Tech Pro Cinema 600 speakers to my Yamaha RXV667. They recommend two methods. One is to connect the subwoofer through a cable using the LFE port on the receiver. I've done...

I'd go with the second method of connection for this receiver if you want to use automated calibration that requires discrete control of each speaker. I'd expect calibration errors with Method One as you're not just monitoring the sub when you test it; and the L and R fronts would have sub chiming in during the test, too. That would surely confuse the automation.

You (or the receiver) wouldn't be able to adjust the sub independently of the fronts that way.

I'd also be a bit leary of their claim you can set your speakers to Large. With only 3-1/4" drivers I wouldn't expect much in the way of realistic bass-handling or power dissipation.

From the manual...

"We encourage you to experiment with the various settings on your subwoofer, settings on your decoder, and hook-up options as described until you find the best combination for you."

I'm considering buying the 180636 "surround sound bar speaker system." My question is, is this JUST a speaker system, which needs to be connected to a separate amplifier or "home theater...

The bar speaker system needs to be connected to an amplifier. What the bar speaker does is replicate a five speaker home theater system using just an amplifier.

The only thing that will give you a better sound quality is some type of amplifier/speaker set-up, wether you choose to have an amp and two speakers or and amp with five speakers and a subwoofer is up to you.

I can't get any real bass out of this unit. Iv'e gone thru the manual 20 times and I set the "DZE" off, then adjust the bass to max and it made a little difference. But this unit is suposed to...

Try to exchange one speaker connections only, unplug connector from speaker and put them + to - and - to + pins.
In my opinion, both speakers are giving out of phase sound that cancels the bass sound, speaker connections should be same phase to get bass sound so just change connecting two wires at any one speaker, that will work.

Negative and Positive markings missing on car stereo speakers one connector requires a larger clip than the other, can this make it possible to tell if one or the other is a pos or neg connection. If so...

The speakers have to be polorized. If you take a small battery and put the negative to one terminal and the positive to the other you will see the speaker push out or pull in. Just tap the battery connection to the speaker. The one you see the positive of the battery push the speaker out will be your positive side or terminal. Make sure you mark a + sign on all the speakers to get uniform polarization.
