Question about Denon AVR-4800 Receiver

Denon reciever avr-487

Just purchased system today. Hooked it up and ran the speaker test on all 5 speakers including the sub. All speakers tested fine. When I plugged my tv into the input of the receiver, only one speaker and the sub projects sound. The other speakers don't project any sound at all. Any ideas?

If your tv is putting out mono you will only get the center and sub speakers. This can be because the tv is only mono, or the output is set to mono in a menu of the tv. If you have cable or sat run the digital audio out to you receiver; it usually sound better that way anyhow. Set your receiver to Dolby mode for best sound.

I just got my system today. All the speakers are working, except the sub-woofer. Any ideas what could be wrong (if not DoA)?


Did you connect power to the sub-woofer? Most subs have their own amplifier. Just check if there is also an on / off switch on the sub.

Are you using the Creative speaker test program? It usually has a picture of a generic layout of a pc system, with the speakers around it, showing a speaker for each that you should have plugged in. There should be a test button that will play a sound through each speaker. If a sound plays from your center speaker when the subwoofer picture is lit up then you may have a cord plugged in incorrectly on either the subwoofer or on the back of the soundcard. I've ran into this many times.
The best way to set up surround sound is to get your speakers placed or mounted on the wall, then run one wire at a time into the subwoofer, to ensure that the front left is hooked into the subwoofer in the front left, front right into front right, etc. Then once the speakers are hooked into the subwoofer start running the outputs from the subwooofer one at a time into the sound card. After each connection run the test program and watch the pictures light up as the sound plays, and make sure that the speaker playing sound in your place is the same speaker that is lit up on the test program.
I hope that helps, otherwise the amp is probably bad. Let me know if you need more help.

How can i test my rca output jacks with a test light? pioneer deh p3100ub. hooked up spkr, nothing. tried one rca plug to white(lt) and then red(rt). Unit has 4 rca jacks, 2 for subwfr and 2 for front...


:) the rca jacks have to be connected to an amplifier,, their signal is too lay to even light a bulb.. you have to connect it to a car amplifier and then from the amplifier to the speakers..

Just so you'd know,, once your deck plays and you hear music on your speakers through your normal speaker wires,, RCA jacks work..

Ok you have 4 jacks,, 2 subs and 2 front.. These should connect to a preamp,, which takes 4 inputs and allows you to equalize or adjust how the music should sound,, now from the pre-amp,, it runs to an amplifier,, thats powers the subs and another that powers the speakers.. Some amps have 4 inputs so you can use one amp for your subs mids and heights..

for example a basic music system is

1 cd player
1 pre amp
1 amplifier (4 inputs, 4 channel out)

you bridge 1+2 and connect this to 1 12" double coil sub woofer

the next 2 connect to 2 mid speakers example "rockford or ev 5 / 8 " and 2 tweeters for heights..

Thats a kicking tricked out basic car audio system,,,

Hope that helps you understand how it works..

Rear speakers not working


Your FM tuner will only generate sound from the front sepakers. CD's, Tape, and I guess mp3 player, as well, will only play through the front speakers.
I've included a link for the manual. The audio on this rig is pretty complex. read through the info, especially pages 11,12,13, and play with the audio controls.

What you describe, sounds like a speaker short. Are you using the Bose wiring with their ends and no cuts in the wire? (splices) It's not too uncommon to extend or shorten a wire. The fastest way to find a short is to disconnect your speakers at the speaker. Be careful to keep the wires separate if they are not on plugs and turn on. If it cuts off (power) or says (protection) on the display that lets you know your speakers are ok and you have a short in the system or a wire. Next, disconnect wires at the sub one by one and test until it causes the system to cut off or short. Leave that speaker disconnected from the sub and test with all others connected. Now you've located the channel that has the problem. First just connect the wire again to the sub. if it cuts out, run a new wire from the sub to the spkr, for testing purposes make it a short wire if possible and test. If you need to use a Bose plug at the sub to test spkrs go buy one at Bose, don't cut your factory wire just yet. If a new plug works then cut and replace. Make sure you use electrical tape not scotch tape or duct tape. If it works fine, test the new plug on the old wire and see if it works. If it does your done, if it doesn't, run a new wire to the speaker with the new plug on it. If after all this and it still doesn't work. Sounds confusing I know, It's just process of elimination, that's how we do it in the field. If all your speakers are disconnected and it still cuts out, it could be the sub or the receiver. Take it to a Bose store and they can check each piece for functionality. If it needs repaired let Bose do it. Hope this helps.

Inifinity Entra Sub not working


The hum can be from the power supply not properly filtering, and or the output stage also has a short.

There is the chance that the speaker driver coil is now burned, or the power supply is now dead. If ther output stage is shorted and was putting DC on to the speaker cone, this will burn it very easily.

You should sent the unit out and have it serviced, unless you are properly trained, have the service and engineering manuals, and the test equipment to follow up on a proper repair and calibration.
