Im trying to hook up my onkyo 808 to my PSB T65. Im not getting any sound to them and dont know what the problem is. I only have front left and rights for now.


The PSB has 4 terminals on the back (2 positive and 2 negative) but the onkyo only has front left and right with a positive and negative on both. So how do i hook these up to get sound do i use something else along with the front left and right or what? Someone please help me haha

Run one set of wires from the receiver to either the top or bottom posts, and that should be it.

Yeah thats what i did and im not getting any sound.
I also have an HDMI cabale from the ps3 to the input of the receiver and and hdmi cabale from the out on the receiver to the tv if that matters but still no sound.

Just to cover all bases you wouldn't by chance have another receiver to hook them up to so we can see if it's the receiver or the speakers, if not do you have another set of speakers to try this with.

Bare with me here, I went and downloaded the manual so get ready for some questions that may seem a little goofy.

1) Do you have your speaker wire connected to the middle pair of binding posts which say Front Right and Front Left and not Front Wide or Front Height I'm not trying to be a wiseguy I have messed up wiring my receiver.

2) Have you ran Audyssey yet?

3) Have your tried using all sources DVD,Tuner,etc...etc

Just ran auddysey and it recognized the front speakers and sent the test tones through the speakers so i know they work i just cant get them to get any sound.

i figured it out guys thanks. I ran auddysey and still got nothing so i hooked up the radio antenna and it worked so i knew it was nothing with the receiver or speakers. I then hooked up my ps3 and tried a game and it got sound through that so i knew it was just something with the connection or settings on the receiver.

I played around and you had to turn on a certain setting for the tv to carry audio through hdmi to the receiver so everything is working.

Now i just need to paint and my couch should be here in about 2-3 weeks and then my amps for the subs and ill be set....for now

Sorry to hear about the TV, but a broken TV is the easiest way to convince the wife it's time for an upgrade........well that's how it worked with my wife. What subs will you be running?
