Question about Sony STR-V444ES Receiver

1 Answer

Hi - I have a Sony V444ES receiver that I have four speakers on A (in house) and two on B (outside). I hooked up a third speaker (rock speaker) for outside use however the sound is very low compared to the other two speakers. I have the rock speaker hooked into the REAR Impedance (R) location. is this the correct location for this type of speaker? Thanks! Joe

What's a rock speaker? All you will hear with one speaker on the Rear Right output is the Rear Right channel which is typically for effects and ambience. You DO have a manual, right?

Individual speakers commonly have different responses given the same amplifier input. Where you physically place a speaker once it's electrically connected is up to you. Speakers placed outdoors might not have the sound-re-enforcement of nearby or adjacent walls as indoor speakers do so they will sound weaker.

how are your four outside speakers hooked up? If you have four speakers hooked up to only two output channels on the receiver, the receiver is sensing a short and shutting down to avoid damage to the amp.

You should adhere to the manufacturers limitations on the amount of ohms the unit can deal with. But if you want to run more speakers than the unit is designed for, you can couple it with an impedance matched speaker switch, which will limit the connection to the right amount for the amplifier.

Receiver str-v444es no sound on headphones or


discharge the output circuit! If you don't you will blow a 10 ohm resistor every time. I've worked on hundreds of these receivers I know. They need the output circuit soldered at the voltage driver ic's and quite possibly some capicitors replaced on the digital board. The caps mounted near the heat sinks dry up the fastest. These are nice amps. Larry's Electronics Sacramento Ca. [email protected]

you can check them with a ohm meter, hook it to the wires that you hook to the reciever and if you get a reading it is good if no reading it is bad wires

Trying to connect two outdoor speakers


More than likely you connected it to the Speaker B terminals in the rear of your receiver. Look for a button or switch on the front and change to either Speaker B for outside only or A&B for indoors and outdoors.

How do I connect my outside speakers to play?


The onkyo should still have a speaker A/B selector in the menu.
Check on the back panel for speaker A/B.
If it has or you decide to use Zone 2 you will need to set the sound programme to "stereo" so the rears and centre do not work.
You can still use a digital source.
You should be able to display the amp's menu on the screen.
Hook up "monitor out" (Yellow) via RCA connector to one of the "A/V inputs" (yellow) on the tv, this will show you a display of the menu and will make it eaiser to navigate.

Stops working after a few mins with cd player playing


One of three things: speaker wire short, shorted/or blown speaker, or a bad output chip. First and easiest way to check is to disconnect all speakers, turn it on, turn it up, and wait. If that's ok, begin connecting one speaker at a time with the unit off, then turn on and play. When you get to the speaker or wire with the problem, it will short and go into protection. Disconnect all speaker wires again and only hook up the speaker that shorted the receiver and test. If it shorts, swap speakers with the same wire and test again. If a different speaker on the same wire causes the unit to short, replace the wire. if it doesn't, you need to test the speaker with a multimeter or disassemble if possible, check the wiring internally on the speaker. Check the impedance, should be 8ohms or 6ohms depending on the drivers. then check for resistance. If your meter says 1... it's shorted and needs to be replaced. Hope this helps

How to run outdoor speakers from my in house receiver


If you have a button for A and/or B speakers on the front of your unit, then use the A (or B) speaker connections for the inside speakers and B (or A) speaker connections for the outside speakers. Then of course you just select either A or B depending on where you want the sound to come out. If you select A and B then it will come out at both locations. If you don't have A/B speaker selection available on the unit, then you will need a speaker select switch (from Radio Shack) or else wire up a four pole double throw toggle switch to do the job.
