SOURCE: speakers stopped working

If the speaker cable was pulled with a lot of force and at an angle to its connector, the most likely problem is a broken connection inside the wire. A visual inspection will not prove that problem but you can try connecting the speaker and wire to another output on the receiver. If the speaker and wire prove to be good then it's most likely that the solder point for that speaker output was broken on the circuit board.

Good Luck,
BB

SOURCE: Wireless digital transmitter doesn't work

I'm having this same problem; it worked all ok in the beginning then one day it didn't and no matter what I try it doesn't seem to connect. Similarly im getting the W1 flashing and even when I take the receiver and move it closer (even within a few feet) it still wont pick it up. I've removed the wireless home phone and baby monitor from within the room without any result. I cannot think of anything else that could be interfering. Any advice or resolution would be much appreciated.

Do i hook the speaker wire in to the top or bottom wire recepticles of the speaker


These are bi amp capable speakers...if you have the jumper in place (connects top and bottom terminals together) it's set up for standard full range connection - you can use either set. If the jumper is not in place, it's set up for bi amp which means you would connect your low frequency wire to the bottom terminals, and the high frequency wire to the upper terminals.

How To Bi-Amp And Bi-Wire Speakers!


What is the difference between bi-wiring and bi-amping?
Bi-wiring is using the same power source (amplifier) but separately connecting that power source to a woofer and a midrange/tweeter on a speaker.

Bi-amping is using two separate power sources (amplifiers) and connecting one amplifier to a woofer and the other amplifier to a midrange/tweeter on a speaker.

How do I bi-wire?
Your speaker must have two separate positive and negative connections (one set for the woofer and one set for the midrange/tweeter). Connect one wire between the positive terminal on the amplifier/receiver the positive terminal on the speaker. Connect the other wire from the negative terminal on the amplifier/receiver to the corresponding negative terminal on the speaker. Remove the jumper straps connecting the two sets of speaker inputs. Repeat this process for the second set of terminals on the speaker, connecting them to the same positive and negative terminals on the receiver/amplifier. Repeat the steps for each speaker you wish to Bi-Wire, connecting them to the appropriate terminals on your receiver/amplifier.

How do I bi-amp?
Bi-amping is similar to bi-wiring, but involves separate amplifiers: one for the woofer and one for the midrange/tweeter. Passive bi-amping involves a direct hookup between each amplifier and the speaker terminals. True bi-amping involves hooking the preamp to an electronic crossover that replaces the passive crossover network in the speaker. The active crossover then connects to multiple power amplifiers.

How to bi wire polk rti a7 using avr 1600 harmon kardon reciever


You mean "buy-wiring"?

Before you go investing in boutique speaker cable (times two) read up on biwiring.

It's a bogus electrical theory to get you to buy more speaker wire.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bi-wiring

I don't see that capacity on this receiver.

Do i have to remove the pin between the two speaker treminals on my old mission 780 speakers before i bi wire them


Yes, the two sets of terminals are for the tweeter and bass driver.

When you bi-wire you want the low frequencies to go only to the bass driver and the high frequencies to go to the tweeter..

How do you hook up the speakers to a receiver. It has duel inputs. Is it two separate channels, or what?


Hello,if the speaker has 2 red and 2 black connectors then its designed to have an option for bi-amping and or bi-wiring.If you dont intend to do either than simply connect the reds together with a speaker wire and do the same with the blacks(if there is already a metal post connecting them than dont do anything but connect your speaker to the reciever as usual.

Do not know how to connect my kappa 60.5cs to my pioneer cd player do they have to go through an external amp?what do i do with the power plugs on the oppisite side why are there 2 per speaker


You need to run RCA cables from the CD player to the CD or AUX input on your amp / receiver unit. If you have a standalone amp, you need some way to control the volume. Basically, if you have a volume control on the front of your amp, you're OK. If not, you should also have a preamplifier that the CD player feeds first.

From the amplifier, then, a single pair of speaker outputs feeds a single pair of inputs on your speakers. The reason for two jack sets on the speakers is for "bi-wiring" or "bi-amping", not necessary for basic stereo reproduction.

So -

CD red/white RCA out -> preamp/receiver red/white CD/AUX input. Amp speaker output (red + / black -) to one red/black input pair on the speakers. An input on the speaker is side by side...

Keep the red to red, black to black when connecting the speakers, or you will wind up with poor sound and weak bass.

Will Bi-wiring these speakers give a noticable difference in audio sound quality ?...I'm using them with a Harman Kardon HK 3490 receiver..


Hi gregorygoff
This speaker is already having its own crossover PCB inside the box, the xover frequencies are all set as per the speaker's response. So, there will be no point making it Bi-wired.

I have had a set of Polk Audio SDA1 speakers that I had attached to an old but great Pioneer SPEC-1 pre-amp and SPEC-2 power amp. The old speakers had one connection for the right speaker positive and...


bi-wiring requires the removal of the copper jumpers between the hi and low speaker terminals. you can use two wire pairs twisted together at amp out connections and the four separate ends at each speaker, but the quality of sound will not be as good as buying quality bi-wire cables. But a pair of quality single set of wires at each speaker would be fine, but put jumpers back on and attach to the top terminals, they are designed that way. bi-wiring does allow the crossover to put out a little better sound. Hooking up four sets of wires to the a and b speaker terminals sounds bad. i have had alot of trouble with my rti10's and learned the hard way that it is best to pay more for wires with quality terminations.
