The SpeakerCraft was in the home when I bought it...it was connected to a DENON device from what I was told ..it had a zone 2setup on the old device ...this one does not. I have a home theater area and another room that is for entertainment with its own set of speakers through the SpeakerCraft...how do I set it up with this model?

Hi Chet and welcome to the site, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.

Initially, bear with us; re-confirm and post back with the complete model number of the "...SpeakerCraft Speer sitter..." Additionally, please describe how the AVR-S920W is connected to this SpeakerCraft product(s).

Hello Louie-It was suppose to SpeakerCraft Speaker System....I just need to know how to hook the SpeakerCraft to the AVR-S920w
Technician: Louie, Technician replied 1 year ago

If it is an independent speaker system, then it would preferably wired likewise as FRONT R & L speakers. However, it may need a switcher box.

Would you be comfortable with this approach ?

No the system was set up through the back of the DENON it has one audio cable (Red) in from the SpeakerCraft and a HDMI coming from the wall.... where do the HDMI and the Audio cable get plugged into the AVR-S920w?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
The HDMI Cable come from the Wall Conneneted through the SpeakerCraft
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Only need to know where those two get connected
Technician: Louie, Technician replied 1 year ago

The AVR-S920w does not have audio output that can work with "...audio cable (Red) in from the SpeakerCraft and a HDMI ...".

This model has only audio output from its SUBWOOFER PREOUT and the speaker terminals.

what do you suggest as those are the only two Cables I have to connect?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
The audio cable must then connect to the subwoofer 1
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
The cable from the wall must be something else that was set up
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Unless I set the HDMI to an auxiliary setting
Technician: Louie, Technician replied 1 year ago

The SUBWOOFER PREOUT can not be used since its output would only be the BASS / low frequency.

Which leaves us no choice but to attempt as posted above, "...wired likewise as FRONT R & L speakers..."

First, any model number of the SpeakerCraft?

How do you turn it on/off? ...once turned on, is there a thump and/or humming sound when the "...audio cable (Red) in from the SpeakerCraft ..." is touched?

What exactly please is this "...audio cable (Red)..."? ...does it have a connector? ...or a plug?

Plugged into power strip from connection inside wall
Technician: Louie, Technician replied 1 year ago

The SpeakerCraft - S4VC Multiroom Speaker Selector IS a switcher box.

Please re-confirm that the other connection is a "...HDMI coming from the wall..."

What do you suggest and how do We do it?
Technician: Louie, Technician replied 1 year ago

Let's step back and check / review the basics.

Have you tried the ".once turned on, is there a thump and/or humming sound when the "...audio cable (Red) in from the SpeakerCraft ..." is touched?"

And there is a thump / humming sound?

Ask Your Own Home Theater-Stereo Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Very loud
Technician: Louie, Technician replied 1 year ago

If yes, connect this "... red audio plug..." to the DDenon's PRE OUT SUBWOOFER 1.

Reduce the Denon's volume and set it to an FM music station. Test if there would be sound from the Denon's own speakers and from the SpeakerCraft subwoofer/speaker.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Will do
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Only from the speakers in the theater area
Technician: Louie, Technician replied 1 year ago

If none from the SpeakerCraft subwoofer/speaker., then please check/ensure that the Denon's Subwoofer setting is set to On and Subwoofer Mode is set for "LEF+Main". Also verify that all other speakers of the Denon are set to "Small".

Only working from theater speakers even though a green light is on the SpeakerCraft
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Nothing from SpeakerCraft
Technician: Louie, Technician replied 1 year ago

Please re-confirm....

  • remove the SpeakerCraft's red (RCA?) audio plug from the PRE OUT SUBWOOFER 1 jack of the Denon;
  • with the SpeakerCraft turned on, was there a thump/humming sound from SpeakerCraft's speakers when removing this plug?
  • when the tip of this plug is touched?
  • when plugging back in?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
