Howdy, I'm trying to get some speakers I've recently come to own. I tried out two different amps with the speakers.This is what I've working with,

2 Speakers: Carver - Amazing Loudspeaker Platinum IV

Amps: Kenwood - KA-4002 Solid State Amplifier
Lafayette Stereo 10B Solid State Amplifier

I hooked my video game audio RCA cables to the amplifiers. Both popped when I turn the audio source on, but neither produce any sound except a small buzz. I also tested this with headphones to the exact same result.

The amps are old and were just hanging around and I thought I'd try them out. Am I missing something here? And if these amps are incompatible; which cheap receiver/amp would you recommend I pickup for these speakers?

Sounds more like a problem with the input cables from the game console or that you hooked it to the wrong input jacks.

I think Veda is probably right. Taking your time, please explain where the connections came from and to where they were connected on the amp(s).
