Question about Zenith XBS448 System
I connected my 6 speakers to my receiver, but for som reason my subwoofer, surround left and right, and center speakers aren't getting any sound. I even connected the receiver to my television with the rca plugs, a indoor uhs/vhs attenna, and coaxle cable to the rear of the receiver. Still the only speakers to get sound are the front left and right. What is it that I'm doing wrong or am I forgetting to connect a amplifier to help push all the watts? Please explain my connecting problems.

A few questions... What components are involved? How are they connected? Can you hear sound from the speakers for any other input device i.e. radio, cd, vhs, etc.? I suspect that there is an issue with the way the system is connected. I have the Surround sound output from my DVD player connected to the digital surround sound input on my reciever. I'm using digital coax cable (looks like a "normal" RCA cable), not the optical fiber connection. I had to buy a special cable for the digital surround sound. A normal RCA cable would not work. I don't know why. If you're using a similar connection, that could be your issue. make sure that the output and inputs you're using are compatible. A digital surround sound connection (in or out) can't be connected to an analog connector (in or out). Remember, Digital to Digital with a Digital capable cable; Analog to Analog with an Analog capable cable. If this is not your issue, post back here with more info and we'll see what we can figure out.
