    First, tell us what you ARE doing. Need model of speakers, settings for LFE, where are they connected to the receiver?



    You could take a hint from the buzz and abort whatever is causing it before permanant damage happens.

Thank you for responding. I called in an audio specialist to look at the whole system--he believes there is a problem with the amplifier. Will post what he finds out when he looks inside.

I have Denon AVR-2310...but lost operating manual ! In audio set up, more specifically speaker configuration, a choice is given between " FTE", and "FTE +main". What is the...


The manual... http://www.retrevo.com/support/Denon-AVR-2310CI-Receivers-manual/id/23452bh638/t/2/

I'm pretty sure you mean "LFE + Main".

You need to identify the speakers to the receiver as Large or Small regarding their bass-handling capacity more than their actual size.

"LFE" removes the possibly overloading bass in a given speaker channel containing 'small' speakers and sends it to the subwoofer.

"LFE + Main" is sort of explained on page 29 "Bass Setting". The intent of LFE+Main is to task your subwoofer with the bass that ALSO exists on all other speaker channels regardless of their ability to handle it all by themselves. As you can imagine, this might make the subwoofer respond to sonic events that are actually supposed to be directional from, say, the rear channel(s). In that case the event might seem to come from wherever the sub is located instead of the intended direction; or at the very least it might seem to come from both places which is probably not what the sound engineers intended when they recorded the piece.

Having full-range speakers 360-degrees around PLUS a subwoofer, I don't subscribe to the 'bass-is-non-directional' school of thought. If you've ever felt the concussion from and subconsciously glanced toward one of the speakers after, say, a huge explosion, the system is working.

Just bought a denon, and wharfdale 9.1 speakers with no rca cables, what rca cables do i need?


What model speakers?

Didn't these things come with manuals?

Speaker connections from the Denon are typically through speaker cables (glorified lamp cord).

The Denon is not capable of driving the sub directly. The powered (?) subwoofer in your setup would presumably require an RCA cable (whatever length reaches) to feed its amplifier a bass signal from the Denon's Subwoofer Out.

Subwoofer works in test mode on denon avr 790. but not any other time?


I had the same problem. The system from the factory does not ship confgured for continuous subwoofer output. To fix this, do the following:

1. Enter the system menu.
2. Go to "Speaker Setup"
3. Select "Bass Setting"
4. Change the setting from "LFE" to "LFE+Main"

That should do it... You can also see this information in the "Bass Settings" section of the product manual on page 26.

I need to turn up the bass on my denon amp


A few ways to get more bass here you go John.

If you have a sub check your level and crossover settings on sub and on amp, on the sub half volume and 90-120 crossover should be kicking,

Run a speaker level test on your denon and turn up sub channel.

if you want more bass in your speakers press the tone button on the front panal. for some i believe its in the menu system under parameter

Depending on what the source is you can turn up the bass on the source. aka ipod, some dvd players and what have you.

Speaker has no bass


Make sure there are no wires that could be crossed (i.e. positive and negative).  Also check the speaker for any tears below the cone in above the magnet.  Hope this helps.  Good luck.

I don't have a powered sub! +other problems.Denon 2308


Unhook the sub ! center speaker is for front sounds like the people talking. and a sub is for the bass like a bomb going off SO hook your sub to the sub out on your reciever. As far as the vcr..are the vcr inputs on the denon yellow? if so thats a video in (or) out but if its red or white thats for the vcr sound .

Amplifier keeping blowing fuse


This almost always indicates a blown speaker. If you have an ohm meter you can use that to test the impedance on your speakers. After disconnecting the speaker - touch the red lead to one connector and the black lead to the other. If it reads something other than 8ohms that speaker is blown.
If you don't have an ohm meter you can simply disconnect one speaker at a time and run that way until the fuse blows. If the fuse never blows then you've found the suspect speaker.
Sometimes blown speaker can hide by stealth. When cold everything is normal. When things start to heat up from use the failed circuit shorts and blows the fuse on your amp.

Denon receiver shutdown


Try turning down your tone controls. Like your bass, treble, or your equalizer. If you hear too much tinny or hissing sounds, the treble has to be turned down, or turn down the upper bands controls on your equalizer to the optimun level. If you hear too much bassy sounds, your bass control has to be turned down, or the lower band controls has to be turned down to the optimun level. If you are planning on turning the volume up, you may have to turn down some of the tone controls to the optimun levels, otherwise, your receiver may shutdown, or you may blow fuses in your speakers. Also make sure you speaker wire polarity is hooked up right. Red wire on the + red terminals, and the black wire on the - black terminals. Also don't have the volume turned up too high to the point where your receiver would have clipping or distortion, or else your receiver may shutdown, or you may blow fuses in your speakers.

If this don't help, then there may be something wrong with your receiver or your speaker.
