HI,

Disconnect all of your speakers(subwoofers)then turn the receiver on. If it still does it, then bring it into service. If not, that you have a short somewhere probably the main board and there are no home remedies for this.

Goodluck..

Bose Lifestyle (and all Bose-amplified speaker) products and their speakers are SYSTEMS and should not be split up or intermixed with other brands or models. Damage will probably result. Proprietary connectors provides a clue.

The digital audio out should work with the Bose. You could still use your Denon to drive a conventional sub in your scheme, but you would have to manually match volume with the Bose. Or go Full Monty and buy a full complement of speakers for the Denon, retask the Bose and slave its sources to the Denon.

Testimonial: "Thank you sir; your quick response is highly appreciated. I returned Denon and am considering DVDO Edge. Regret running Bose wires @ construction?"

Just moved and got mine hooked up last week. Was working great and now I can't get anything. The reassuring "click" I've always heard when I switch between inputs is gone. Anyway enough about my issue, what specifically are you having trouble with?

Hi,

The connection is similar to what is mentioned in the user manual bellow. Slightly different model but the connections are universally similar:

The surround sound outputs outputs ic's in the remainder of the system have opened, or there is a short in the speaker wiring, check to make sure that is not the case, if okay! you will need a repairman to assess the situation.

Maybe start with speaker test tones to verify the hardware instead of messing with live audio modes.

BTW: the powered subwoofer is supposed to be driven by the 'Subwoofer' Pre-Out.

What input are you using that allows audio when you select EXT IN AND the other modes? That is a specialized analog input for 5.1 analog equipment ONLY. (Page 32)

How do i connect my denon RC7000CI to denon amp. 2801


I cannot access the setup menu on the unit display or via the s-video monitor out -- everything was working fine a few days ago. I have reset micro, unplugged all night, reset again, and still cannot get to the menu in order to correct connections, esp for digital. My problem is on the avr5600 but seems like this happens on many of the denon units

Speaker connection from Denon AVR 2105 to Wharfedale suround


The spkrs sound like they are bi-amp spkrs, meaning you have multiple terminals on the backs of each spkr, the jumpers on the spkrs should be connected as such. Now you just connect the spkrs according to the Denon spkr conection diagram. Do not use the surround back unless you have 6 or 7 pair of spkrs

Denon AVR 2807 with Bose Acoustimass 15


Well,i can tell you are not very focus,cause you posted Denon AVR-2807 with Bose AC 15 problem,but under your details,you put down AVR-5807!
First of all,it is so unfortunate that you are NOT able to gain and experience to true ability in sound for this wonderful receiver when you are using a dual tweeters speakers and expect to have good sound separation as a TWO WAY speakers(a tweeter and a midrange-for true high frequency and mid frequency sound separation.)
Secondly,you have defeated the audio configuration of the Denon AVR-2807,since all your speakers are control BY the Bose subwoofer.
Now,i could show you a way to hook this up,and it doesn't matter how you connect them, they are the "bicycle tires" installed with a "Porche"engine if you know what i mean.
If you want a good recommendation for your "beast",i will more than happy to show you the way!
Cheers,
