Question Surround Sound Speaker

Got a surround sub woofer hooked up to a curtis home
theater system that the 2008 Grey Wolf TT came out with.
Got in behind the sub woofer speaker yesterday. One wire a black one
was not connected. White one was hooked up. The good old
pull down the lever and put the twisted wire end in and let go
of the lever so it contacts. Tried hooking up black and white,
switching holes, (only 2) no difference. I can tell you that my
sub woofer is not working, nor is surround speaker right or left rear.
Center and both front are working. Thanks in advance for any tips.

Go find a "D" cell battery and two pieces of wire about a foot long each. Strip back 1/2" of insulation on the wires, each end. Attach your two wires to the two speaker terminals. Hold the other end of one wire (doesn't matter which one) to the "-" minus end of the battery. Gently scrape the other wire across the "+" positve end of the battery. You should hear a crackling sound from the speaker. If not the speaker is defective. (or you're not getting a good connection for this test).

If the speaker crackles, then the problem is someplace else. Likely loose or missing wires.

On the world famous Concertone radio units that we on here are so fond of, (ha ha), there is a wiring diagram on the top of the housing, when removed from the cabinetry. Your radio, IF it is a factory installed unit, should have one also. If it isn't a factory installed unit, it may not have the wiring provisions available for 5 speaker surround sound; or the sub, for that matter.GOOD LUCK !!! Randy
