Question about Denon AVR-3805 Receiver

Can't get the MultiZone to work on my Denon AVR 3805 Reciever

I have a pair of speakers in my kitchen that I used as speakers "B" on my old reciever, now with this Denon I thought I could put them on one of the Multizone channels and send a different audio source to them? When reading the instructions it keeps talking about a 2nd amplifier on Zone 2 or 3. I just have speakers, can I just hook up speakers to Zone 2 or 3 and power them from the Denon?

No as there is no volume control on the zone outputs

It sounds like you have a bad speaker on the zone 2, or you have the speakers connected improperly.

When you engage the zone 2 a relay clicks and the speakers then become part of the amplifiers circuit.

If the problem was in the amplifier, it would go into protect mode without even having speakers connected to it.

If the speakers all check good, you most likely have the wrong type of speakers, meaning the impeadance is too low, or you have too many speakers connected to it.

On the back of the Denon, you will see right around the speaker output jacks, what ratings the speakers should be. If I remember correctly, it says 6 ohms or more when using only "A" or "B", and it says 12ohms or more for "A" + "B".

If you have two 8 ohm speakers on the same speaker jack you now have a 4 ohm load. That is below the ratings and can cause the amp to shut down (go into protect). Since your amp shuts down right away, I think you have a bad speaker or way too many speakers connected.

I have seen many times when people will connect 2 or 4 speakers to the one of the outputs that are designed for only 1 speakers.

If you are using too many speakers you will need a speaker distribution box. It has a resistor network built into it so the amp never sees a lower impeadance than what it is designed for.
You can connect 4, 6 or 8 speakers to one set of outputs designed for 2 speakers. You do loose a lot of power to the speakers, but it is better than blowing up your amplifier.

If I can be of any further help, let me know.

If the Cd is wired digitally, it will only play through the main zone, because the Denon cannot convert down to RCA to cater for the zone 2. If you plug RCAs from Cd to Denon, Main zone will STILL play from digital, and RCA connection will allow zone 2 to play Cd from RCA input....same with dvd, Satellite Blah blah... no stress, any nasty RCA will do if you want to try before you splash out on really costly cables...perhaps you can help me...want to run AVR 2105 with 2 speakers in zone 2, manual says cant do it - only ably to surround back or biamp...dont want either, dont have stereo yet to try it out...did you have any trouble with that?

SOURCE: Denon AVR-3805 zone 2 no longer working

time to reset the microprocessor. See page 87 in manual.
1) switch off the unit using the main unit's power operation (small power button)
2) hold the PURE DIRECT button and DIRECT button at same time and turn the main unit's power operation on.
3) wait for entire display to flash in 1 second intervals

now the speakers need to be set up again but zone 2 will be working. i suspect a power surge causes the microprocesser to be corrupted. i put a power surge protector and have not had problems (lately).

Connecting a passive subwoofer to a denon 2113


you need another reciever/amp to power that sub, because that denon reciever is designed for a powered sub,. if you have another old reciever/amp laying around, you can connect the sub out from the denon into an auxillary input of any old reciever/amp, (switched to that input) with speaker wires from old reciever/amp to the passive sub

Denon AVR-1706 Left Front and Rear speakers stopped working. Any suggestions?


go into the settings menu and do a sound test using the recievers pink noise tester to test each speaker connected, if while doing this test you still get no sound from those two speakers check connections, make sure speakers are not blown.
if speakers and connections are good then the reciever needs repair

My reciever is shutting down completley when i try to turn on the second zone. i tried rewiring it but it still does it could it be the reciever or do i just have the settings incorrect?


if the reciever shut down with zone 2 on, zone 2 volume at -3 and nothing connected to zone 2 it needs repair if not reconnect the speakers to zone 2 speaker connections and make sure you do not have more than 4 pair of speakers with impedence matching volume controls or a impedence matching speaker selector box

No surround sound from my Denon 3805


well as long as all signals are routed through the Denon your on the right track, now what else you have to do is connect all devices to the reciever do not loop one device through another. Also you have to try the different surround fields to hear the one you like the best for music I use 5Ch stereo for movies the surround field varies based on the type of movie

Denon reciever


Sounds like you are exceeding the maximum power output of the receiver. Try disconnecting some speakers (and switch to A-only mode if your model has multi-zone) and see if that makes a difference.
