ohhh guys im so scared!
i just got onkyo receiver SA605.
i connected it with my panasonic blue ray player.
then i connected my 7 JBL speakers to receiver.
everything fine....
sound is great....
after 5 min. i noticed that right sorround speaker is not working.then i connected other speaker instead to not working one andeverything is fine...
so one speaker is dead...
after 10 min my front left speaker stops working too!
same thing
Now im left with only 5 working speakers!

2 speakers stoped working in 10 minutes and they are dead.
is it possible (and to me its logic) that my new receiver did this?

Now im scared to connect and play other my speakers!

please help me, i dont know what to do....
thank you

I highly doubt that the speakers are ruined, most likely there is something wrong with the receiver. Are you sure you have the speaker wires hooked up correctly, possitive to possitive and negative to negative? Usually if you have the wires hooked up wrong, the entire receiver will shutdown into protective mode, so I am guessing that is not the problem.

What surround mode are you using, Dolby Digital, PLIIx, etc.? Again, to me it sounds like your receiver may be bad. Where did you purchase the system from, can you take it back?

yes, 2 speakers are dead, when i connect them to any speaker output from receiver they are not working.
others are working but im scared now to turn on receiver.
its not receiver, but receiver could cause this problem to them.

Do you know what model of JBL speakers your using? This is just strange that your speakers would stop working. Even if you were cranking the receiver to its limits it is unlikely unless your using little JBL computer speakers or something. You've got me on this one?

Well here is a link to them

I'm really not sure what to tell you. To be honest they are not the biggest speakers in the world, but unless you were maxing out the volume and blew them, I'm not sure what to tell you. How loud and what were you listening to when they stopped working?

In the receiver setup, you would want them set to small, and have a crossover setting around 80hz to send the low LFE to the sub.

If you figure it out, you will have to let us know...

i was listening blue ray movie pirates,wolume on receiver was 55 and sound was just normal (i have small room).
Now when u are saying am i maxing out the volume do you mean - sound (that was normal,nothing too loud) or volume (it showed 55 on receiver) ?

I was just curious if you were cranking up the volume near maximum and possibly blew those little speakers, not sure. If you had them set to large in the receiver setup, then they would be receiving the full freq range, which would normally be directed to the sub.

It is still my guess that there is something wrong with the receiver, but not sure. Do you have another receiver, even an older one, that you can try hooking up the bad speakers to?
