    Thumbs down Help! Amp sounding strange

    I have a 12 channel amp powering 6 pairs of speakers along with 6 impedance matching volume controls throughout the house. When I connect one particular pair of speakers they are distorted and only play at a very low volume. If I put my ear to the amp I can hear a distorted audio signal which is alarming because the amp doesn't have any internal speakers to be outputing any sound. I get the same result no matter which channel I connect this particular set of speakers to so it must have something to do with the wiring for these speakers. All the other speakers sound fine.
    Would this be a short in the wiring??? Or something else????

    I would say a DEAD short on the speaker wiring or speaker.

    If you have meter see if short is removed when speaker is disconnected or not. If it does then the speaker is the problem, if not it's the wiring.

    Don't hook this back up you could damage the amp. Fix the wire / short.
