2nd Room Source RCA Plugs

The left channel on my 2nd room source RCA input jack on the back of the receiver is not working. I've hooked up an AudioSource integrated amplifier to power some deck speakers. I've narrowed the problem down to the receiver. Is there a way to fix w/o spending a ton of money at circuit city? Thank you.

It sounds like the jack just needs to be resoldered is all. Open it up and resolder it. Simple, yet beautiful.

No right channel on AV2

First, does TV sound without external sources work on both channels?

With the one RCA connected and getting sound, unplug it and plug into other channel. Any sound? If not, remove it and plug the other RCA by itself into the left channel. Sound? If yes, plug it into the right channel. No sound? If not, bad TV input.

If you do get sound on that other channel with a single RCA, then you have either a bad cable or bad source. Reverse RCA's on source and try same test, plugging each RCA into each input on TV one at a time.

If the TV is bad, you will get sound on just the left channel regardless of which RCA you use.

How do i play my ipod through the home theathre

Get you an Ipod harness adapter with RCA plugs from Radio Shack. Plug in the Left & Right channels of your RCA plugs to the Auxiliary input (or Tape, or CD inputs will work as well) of your receiver. Select that source input on your receiver and play your Ipod.

I have a new rca receiver and have it hooked up to my dvd player which works fine. I have it hooked into my tv and Im not getting sesurround through my tv how can I connect to the tv to make it work my tv...

Take a clue from the 10-year old vintage of the TV and the two analog audio cables. It's Dolby Pro Logic Surround at best, not Dolby Surround in the modern, digital, multi-channel sense.

TV's are not the source nor the end of a multi-channel audio chain. Feed this thing a 2-channel source from a Cable Box (into the "TV" jacks), DVD, Video Tape or CD with proper Dolby Surround encoding and will seem to open up the sound field a bit and kick in a little surround effect. It can also simulate a Hall effect and Dolby 3 stereo.

Where are the amps and how do i by pass them for the stereo

The amps are located inside the radio. Most in-dash receivers that provide for "pre-amp outputs" also called "low level outputs" do so by providing female RCA type jacks. These are often found at the end of a short (4 - 6 inch) cable and are usually color coded red & white or red & black (some receivers provide a yellow RCA jack for video in / out, too). To use these RCA audio jacks, you need to realize that one jack is for the left channel source and the other is for the right channel source for a stereo signal. You will have to connect a compatible plug and cable of enough length to extend to a remote amplifier's RCA input jacks. The vehicle's speakers would also need to be connected directly to the same amplifier's output terminals. Using the two audio (left and right) RCA jacks will only allow the radio to control balance of the left and right audio, no fader (front and rear) control is possible. To get fader control, you'd have to either have a radio with four RCA low level output jacks (front L & R *and* rear L & R), or use the radio's speaker (or high level output) wires and connect them to the amplifier's speaker (or high level) input terminals.

All unused receiver wires should be terminated in a wirenut or securely wrapped in electrical tape to prevent accidental contact with grounded metal or other wires behind the dash.

I hope this helps!

Connecting Bose 901 series iv to Harman Kardon AVR 254

Most HK av receivers have pre amp out,power amp in with metal jumpers connecting them for the main or front channels. that would be the best place to hook up the EQ on a AV receiver. If your receiver doesn't have pre out, power in jacks , you can use tape monitor .record out playback in. The tape monitor option is best for stereo use , as the active EQ will charge all speakers in tape mode, possibly damaging other speakers.I run my 901 s with a seperate pre-amp,power-amp hooked up to my Denon AV receiver that way i can run in surround w/standard speakers

Receiver works with digital signal input jack only.

Are you talking about the 6 channel input with all RCA jacks? Please explain a little better, it is very hard to know how you have it connected without a very good description since I can not put my eyes on it. You may need to check the settings, it may have the rears muted. More information from you will help me to be able to help you.
