There should be a subwoofer output on your receiver that it connects to. It'll be labeled "Subwoofer" and its typically a purple connection.

If you use a consumer CD-Audio Recorder you will have to use blank CDR's that have "audio" or "music" printed on them for RECORDING. The manual that accompanies the hardware would explain that.

If the antenna is in a basement that is the problem - the fact that it is below ground means that no signals can get through.
Radio signals are blocked by buildings, large lumps of metal or other solid objects as well as strong magnetic fields (which can include electrical devices within the home).
To pick up good radio reception you will need an external antenna above the ground level - preferably as high as you can get it. Unless you get an omni-directional antenna like this one http://www.maplin.co.uk/vhf-fm-omnidirectional-aerial-874 you will need to point the antenna accurately at the transmitting station (+ or - about 5 degrees) for FM. At a pinch you might get by with an indoor aerial but it needs to be above ground level (inside a roof would be best)
Good external AM Radio aerials are harder to find these days.

No. Do you see speaker connections on it?

You can use any of the inputs you listed for a turntable, but you'll need a turntable preamp. The output level from the turntable's cartridge is too low on its own, and needs a boost to bring it to the line level those inputs need. The turntable preamp (also called a phono preamp) provides that boost.

Preamps are available from many online sellers, and you may be able to locate one at a retail store in your area. Radio Shack still sells one in some of their stores, and they are often available at musician supply stores or audio shops. It simply installs between the turntable output and receiver input. You'll also need an AC outlet nearby since the preamp needs a power source.

The connections themselves are fairly simple but it pays to understand what happens in the loop. And since you don't name the EQ I'll make some broad generalizations that you should be able to adapt to your equipment. They're all pretty much the same for hook-up anyway.

In general, any Line-Level external processor (EQ, dynamic range expander, etc) will go into a Tape Monitor loop on a receiver. A Tape Monitor, when engaged, sends the selected stereo analog signal Out to the Processor, massages it and returns it to the receiver via the Tape Monitor IN connectors to be passed on to the receiver's internal processes (volume, tone, whatever).

Old school analog stereo-only receivers consistently work this way. Newer digital and audio/video receivers introduce a couple of problems: 1) digital sound processing to simulate a variety of soundfields; 2) multiple output channels, either discrete or digitally-generated.

The latter requires that whatever signal is being processed experiences a maximum of one analog-digital-analog conversion.

EVERYTHING analog coming into the modern digital receiver is automatically converted to a digital signal for internal processing unless you choose some form of STEREO-only or STEREO-Direct setting. Consequently, no further external analog-digital conversions would be allowed if, say, a Tape Monitor circuit was activated, and a possible feedback loop could otherwise be created in a digital-sourced selection (output to its own input), so the unit is wired to treat the Tape Monitor as the first analog step in the process and defeats any pure digital sources.

In a multichannel unit, what would happen to the other channels if you sent ONLY the Front Left & Right out for processing? The rest would NOT be processed. That logical problem also plays into the decision to defeat digital sources if the Tape Monitor is activated. I don't totally agree with the engineers but that's the way it is. Nature of the digital beast.

Okay, back to the hook-up:

It's should clearly marked on the back of the EQ where everything goes.

The Line IN and Line Out would go to any available Tape Loop on the receiver. Something that has Out's and In's. Obviously, Out's on one device go to In's on the next.

So, to sum up, you can only use the EQ or any outboard processor for analog stereo sources. If you actually want to use an analog recording deck or anothere processor you could place it within the typical Equalizer's own Tape Monitor loop(s). Many have two to facilitate equalized dubbing between decks and those loops can be engaged or bypassed via controls on the EQ or Processor

Move it back.

I would check with KLH first but if you have no luck, you might try at Electronic Goldmine who will not likely have the exact knobs but may have some that will work:
Elec. Goldmine
Enter 'knob" in the product search window.

This may not help but I have found not a single positive review of this product and many vocally negative ones...


Maybe it would be best to give up on it and get a quality CDR-Recorder. I've had my Pioneer PDR-09 for 8 years and it is perfect.

Sounds like heat to me.

Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Eure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

you can find replacements from radio shack or maplins. you may like to try a stronger type as the ones shown tend to be a little weak

Your problem is VERY common. It's defective, get a replacement.


2.0 out of 5 stars Not bad for price $70+$30 S&H, October 20, 2003 By A Customer
This review is from: KLH DVZ-2500 DVD Home Theater System (Electronics) I read alot of the recent reviews before purchasing this system. I wasn't going to buy it because of the volume problem (too loud) but some people said that this could be lowered in the 'audio properties > dynamics' setting.
Sure enough, there is a setting, but it does NOT lower the volume level at all. So, I rang the toll free 888 number and this audio level problem is a defect. However, the dynamic setting is purely to make some sounds softer, not to lower volume. I was told to get a replacement. The replacement is the exact same way ... defective. Buy this system if you only want to hear _DVDs_ with all speakers, because there are no inputs. And the radio, CD is at best stereo,
if you don't mind the fact that it will be too loud, if at any stage you want a normal listening level. I gave 2 stars because I was able to watch a DVD ok with volume level one.

The KLH R5100 only supports standard definition.
You would connect either composite (yellow) or S-video to the "Sat" connection on the rear of the receiver. For audio you would connect a stereo (red/white) analog connection to the same "Sat" connection.
