Note TIC outdoor subwoofers offer 2x satellite capability. This requires you connect both Left and Right channel inputs directly to the sub woofer. TIC subwoofers have a 14/4 gauge, 4 core cable input to accommodate the L&R connections to outputs of 2x 14/2 cables for the satellite speaker connections. TIC outdoor subwoofers contain a network that provides both hi-pass filters for the satellites and a low pass network, crossing over at 100Hz, for the bass sub woofer
No Sound from your outdoor subwoofer speakers?
Check your outdoor speakers are correctly connected to the outdoor speaker cable(s) from the receiver amplifier
Check your outdoor speaker cable is correctly connected to your "Power", receiver amplifier
Check the receiver power amplifier is switched "on" at the mains, is not set to the "mute" function by mistake and has no headphones currently attached.
Check that if you use different channels to power your exterior speakers (usually A or B channels on the amplifier) that the switch or "on" function for that channel is operational *important
Refer to the Owners Manual that came with your receiver amplifier for recommendations
Most initial problems experienced with exterior speaker set ups are simple connectivity. Please try a different cable connection to your outdoor speakers or equipment
No Sound from one of your outdoor speakers?
Check the "Balance" control on your receiver amplifier
Check all connections and cable to the inoperable exterior speaker
1. disconnect the "working" outdoor speaker from your receiver amplifier connection/ channel. Switch the cable from the non-operating speaker from its current connection to the working speaker connection. If the speaker now works fine, the problem is your receiver amplifier
2. Reconnect as original. Remove the speaker cable at the "working" speaker directly and connect it directly to the non-working speaker. If the speaker now works the problem is somewhere in the original speaker cable
3. If the speaker still did not work the problem is in the speaker
Your outdoor speaker(s) sounds distorted, lower volume or "different"?
Exterior speakers are sometimes run out quite far from their power source and even each other. This can affect the sound quality between them. You must also be aware of large differences in the distance some exterior are run outside and the effect that "resistance down the line" can have on the actual signal
strength received and therefore performance of your exterior speaker because of it
