Question about Pioneer VSX-9110TXV-K

1 Answer

We have a Pioneer VSX-9110 TXV and am absolutely happy with this unit. In addition to the family room surround speakers we have 2 outdoor speakers which are used in the "Room 2" setting. We had these outdoor speakers powered by using the amp on our old receiver but now that receiver is kaput. Can anyone recommend an amp to power our outdoor speakers. The more simple the better. Thank you, Dave (Sacramento)

You might be able to find a really good deal on a signal amplifier through a big corporate music store. They tend to have a lot of selection and great information about the power needs of your system and all that. If you have a lot of cable to go through to get to your speakers (since they are outside) you will probably be able to find an amp that will last longer and transfer a better signal at someplace like Musician's Workshop" or "Guitar Studio" or another major outlet ... plus they have killer sales several times per year. Just make sure you let them know that you are looking for a "RACK MOUNTABLE SIGNAL AMPLIFIER" not just an amp, since if you just ask for an amp they will take you over to the amp/speaker combinations that people hook into an electric guitar.
If you are looking to keep your system entirely in the "home electronics" market, you could try Best Buy. The reason I am not giving any specific suggestions about what type of amp to buy is that your needs (distance of speakers from source, price, other features, etc.) for your specific setup are the main factor in the purchase. Depending on what secondary features you are looking for (Equalizer, subwoofer pre-outs, multiple room usability, future upgrade-ability etc.) and your price range, there is a WIDE array of options available. I recommend that you take some measurements to a few stores and ask specific questions:
1. Measure: Distance to indoor speakers, distance to outdoor speakers, preferable size of component (so you can fit it with the rest of your system) 2. Questions: Is the distance between the stereo base and components enough to merit a line amplifier between the stereo and the outdoor speakers? If you were to add the line amp, how much would it cost, and what is the risk to the component if you do not have one? Will the cooling requirements of the amp make it difficult to put it with the rest of your equipment? Are there any warranties on the component? Should you get an amplifier that will cover all of the speakers, so you can avoid burning out your receiver if you want all of the speakers running at once? Which brand that has all of the options you are looking for is the most reliable (according to customer feedback).?
Phillips, Sony and Magnavox all make relatively inexpensive receivers that can be found at any electronics store ... but their durability over time is proportionate to their price. Fender, Marshall and Peavy all make really good and durable signal amplifiers for musicians, but they might not be able to handle the distances between the stereo components and the outdoor speakers .. but if they can cover the distance, they will last a LOT longer than the home electronics at a comparable price since they are designed to be used as part of a career, rather than as part of your leisure time.

Pioneer VSX 1020K - Zone 2 Setup


I referred to a similar zone 2 arrangement for a Yamaha receiver. It shows a separate amplifier and notes that only analog signals are sent to zone 2. The analog output from a source must be connected to the analog input on your Pioneer unit for zone 2 to work. Your outdoor music environment will be limited to left and right front speakers and...alas...no surround

Hi I want to add 2 extra speakers (for outdoors) to my Pioneer VSX-519V and see in the manual that I require a separate amplifier. Why is that necessary & if so can you recommend one please ? Thank...


Technically, you dont need an additional amplifier to run another set of speakers. This amplifier has a second zone output option. What you need to do is connect your outdoor speakers to the second zone on the reciever, than you can turn it on and select the desired source from your remote.

Is it possible to hook up a powered subwoofer to this unit? It has a centre pre-out, but nothing labelled for a sub, and the manual is useless. This is a very nice old receiver, works perfectly, and I'm...


I own 2 of these Pioneer VSX-D903S units.

The only way to hook a powered subwoofer up to a VSXD903S is if your subwoofer is equipped with amplified/speaker level terminals on the back, in addition to the line-level input. If you only have a line-level input, do not attempt to hook it up to this receiver.

If you're lucky, and have speaker-level inputs on your powered subwoofer, you would use the amplified terminals (connect to B-channel on the receiver). DO NOT connect anything to the line-level connection.

Alternatively, you could build two unpowered subwoofers, then set the receiver's Impedance switch to LOW, then connect one enclosure to each of the "B-channel" outputs. Connect your regular left and right speakers to their corresponding "A-channel" outputs. [Impedance range: 4 Ohm minimum, 16 Ohm Maximum]

(To the guy [dunnbiker] that says there's no rear channels: You're wrong.) The VSX-D903S has 2 stereo (A/B) channels, dual center channel (place center speakers to the left and right, or above and below the screen), and two rear satellite channels. It is a 3-Ch Logic/Dolby Pro-Logic Surround equipped receiver, not a DolbyDigital/DTS multichannel x.1 surround unit.

Pioneer receiver vsx-d510 sub not working


Rear Surrounds are not supported on this unit, they would be the 6th and 7th channels in a 7.1 rig. I think you mean Surrounds (channels 4 and 5 in a 5.1 rig).

Lets ponder: How is there any relationship between Surrounds and your separately-amplified Subwoofer? I don't see it, unless you inadvertently chose OFF for the Sub definition when you were in the Speaker selection menus adding the Surrounds. Look again.

With the receiver off, press ENTER + ADVANCED SURROUND keys continuously for 2 sec. and it will tell you the fault it encountered. Even if it has a short, it will still protect the speakers; however, it is still a good idea to disconnect all speakers before doing this.
