Awia speaker ok for home thaeter


Just about any speaker will work for home theater. As long as it makes sound.

Of course, you will need some type of surround sound processor (like a surround receiver) and other speakers to connect to the front left, center, front right and surround connections.

Some speakers will work better than others.

I will not get into any specifics because there is WAAAAY to much information to get into. Do a little research on home theater systems and how to design, hook up etc.

I have no idea how to connect these speakers all I have is the wires for the 5 speakers and a power cord for the sub any help please?


You have not mentioned -- connect it to what ???. Assuming that its an AV receiver. Start by connecting the front three speakers to the the amplifiers speaker sockets labeled Left front / Center / Right Front. These are connected using three short wires. Then connect the two surround speakers using the pair of long speaker cables. You will need a RCA to RCA cable to connect the subwoofer to the Receivers subwoofer preamp out.The subwoofer also requires an A/C wall socket to power it.

Bought a LG Blu ray DVD Home theater system last weekend and set up with LG lcd tv and has been working fine till today. We had the radio on and I turned the TV on and the two rear speakers do not work...


Hello,
In a surround sound system, the correct way to listen to music is in stereo mode which will play out of your left and right channels and your subwoofer. When viewing a movie with surround sound, then you should use your rear speakers. The key element to remember is that rear speakers are only intended to play your sound effects, and will not play full range audio. Thats what your fronts and center are for. If you simply want to override this, than you will need to select the direct sound field on your receiver and than it will send full range audio to all speakers connected. Most likely, its not going to sound that good. If you dont know what each sound field does, here is a list and function of the most commonly used ones.
Stereo-Front Left and Right speakers including subwoofer
Dolby Digital or PLII Movie-these are the bost options for your surround sound
Direct-All speakers connected get full range signal
Good Luck

Center and rear speakers not working


In regard to the rear speakers, my system is an LG and the rear speakers will only work if the format that i'm watching (TV, DVD) is in Dolby surround sound 5.1. Normal tv will not give you surround sound unless it says otherwise, usually it will flash up on the screen at the start of the show. So test the unit with something that you know is in 5.1

Replacement speakers


You should be able to use any of the "bookshelf" speakers to replace the Front Left/Right and Rear Left/Right. I would go ahead and get a dedicated Center speaker. I bought a Pioneer center speaker and a pair of KLH 3-way bookshelf speakers at Radio Shack at low prices. I also bought a pair of Insignia 3-way bookshelf speakers. I put this all together with a Durabrand Home Theature system (dumping the satellite speakers). There is better range and a much fuller tone with these speakers versus the originals. Even if you hadn't lost the speakers, I would recommend this as a good upgrade.
Hope that helped.

Suround sound speeker system for sony


It's very simple. The center speaker should be directly in front of you, usually where the TV is located and the front left and right should be at the side of the TV (left and right), the two rear speakers should be anywhere behind you and the subwoofer can be placed anywhere in the room. The front speakers and center should be within 6' to 10 feet from the seating position and the rears can be anywhere behind the seated position.
Hope that helps.

The 'Subwoofer' output on your receiver is used to connect to a powered subwoofer with a built in amplifier. Your KLH speakers use what is called a 'passive' subwoofer, it gets its power from the receiver and then passes the higher frequencies to the left and right front speakers after taking out the low frequencies for the subwoofer. A speaker system with a passive subwoofer is good for casual listening, but a powered subwoofer is required for really hearing low frequencies and rumble in movies. The KLH speakers you have were highly rated in their time for their price. The four satellite speakers and center channel speaker have very good sound compared to the little 'midget' surround sound speakers most people buy today.

Here's how you hook them up:

- The left and right front channels from your receiver terminals should go to the terminals on the subwoofer marked 'From Amplifier'
- Your left and right front speakers are then connected to the subwoofer terminals marked 'To Speakers', they do not connect directly to your receiver.
- Your center speaker is connected to your receiver terminals marked 'Center'
- Your rear speakers are connected to your receiver terminals marked 'Surround'

That should get you up and running. If the bass isn't good enough with the passive subwoofer, you can get a decent powered subwoofer like the Velodyne VX-10 for about $150 and 'kick it up a notch'. Good luck and enjoy....
