Question about RCA Audio Players & Recorders

2 Answers

My RCA RS2622 sound stopped working.

I was extending one of the speakers when I (stupidly) let the bare positive and negative wires touch, while the stereo was turned on and playing. My dad is a electronics wizard and is stumped by this one because the speakers are fine as is everything else about the radio, and even the headphone jack works, but puts out no sound to the speaker jacks. I've researched this a bit and noticed other people have the exact same problem! (not caused by bare wires touching that is) My question would be do you think whatever happened could be repaired at home, a mission for my father, any good ideas for him?... or should i/is it even worth to send it on somewhere to get repaired?

Ive had the same problem with a RCA stereo i use. There areinline fuses in the amplifier section that will blow if something like this happens. If one blows it will make no sound. Replacing these fuses should fix this issue.

I'll need to look up your specific model to be sure, but I believe that the speaker outputs come from an amp pac. The headphones are driven by an opamp IC. The outputs are blown on this. If you can solder, you should be able to repair this. I'll look up the parts required and get back to you.

My amplifier for my subs is tied into my rear speaker wire with RCA adapters hi touched the RCA adapter accidentally to the speaker box positive negative and it arced now I have no sound from my radio

You probably trashed the output transistors in the radio. You may have lucked out and only blew a fuse. If the fuses are good, then say hello to a new radio.

My panasonic dvd stereo system sa-pm91d when the volume is turned above 25, it plays distorted sound, it sounds like I have incorrectly tuned a radio channel even when using the auxiliary input

Hi Gusma,
If you have Distorted sound.
    These may be the causes of the problem:

  • Make sure the speakers wires are properly connected.Check the color codes, be sure they are rightfully followed.
  • - Shorting (bare wires touching) of positive and negative speaker wires.
  • - Using speakers with an impedance lower than that rated for this unit.
  • - Straining of the speakers through excessive volume or power.
  • - Using the unit in a hot environment without proper ventilation.
I am also including a link to the User Manual. Read it thoroughly.
Best of Luck,

What is the proper way of connecting my two speakers to my PIONEER M-90 Amplifier?

As with any amplifier...


Connecting the speakers

Each speaker connection on the receiver comprises a positive (+) and negative (-) terminal. Make sure to

match these up with the terminals on the speakers themselves.

Make sure that all the bare speaker wire is twisted together and inserted fully into the speaker terminal.

If any of the bare speaker wire touches the back panel it may cause the power to cut off as a safety measure.

How do I hook up the bare wires speakers to the back, sound is coming out not good.

Sounds to me like you might have the polarity reversed. Meaning you might have hooked the positive to negative and the negative to the positive. Positive will will be red negative will be black on your receiver. On the speaker wires negative will always be solid black. Positive could be solid red, black with a red stripe, or black with any color stripe. Make sure you have solid black hooked to black and the other hooked to red. Hope this helps:)

Subs dont work

To test speakers.A. Unplug speaker wires.
B. connect a 9volt battery to each speaker,touching one wire to the negative and the other to the positive breifly. The speaker should extend outward or inward, simulating the pumping of the cone. Depending on the polarity of the DC voltage hooked to the battery.
That's why it is important to wire the speakers correctly. Pos to Pos Neg to Neg.
You should know if the speakers or wired in series or parallele.
Google speaker wiring. Very informative.

Problem with hifonics 1505 class d mono

The positives are connected together and the negatives are connected together. The two pairs of terminals are for convenience. You'd connect one speaker to a pair of positive/negative terminals and you'd connect the other speaker to the remaining pair of positive/negative terminals.

You need to confirm that you have a good signal feeding the amp. If you have another amp in the vehicle, swap the RCA cables between the amps to see if it makes a difference.

You also need to confirm that the speaker are working properly and that there are no broken connections in the wires. If you disconnect the speaker wires from the amp and touch the wires across a D-cell battery (for a fraction of a second), the speaker should pop. if it doesn't, check the wiring to determine why.
