I inherited a 1995 Lifestyle 5 system that has a subwoofer, 5 small doublen array speakers and the System center. I plugged-in the System Center (silver unit with CD player) and I get nothing (none off the radio, the CD, none). I used the small speakers on my Sony TV (detachble speakers) and they worked and so does the center speaker when I hooked it up to my Yamaha receiver.
Question: 1) What could be wrong with the system center? 2) are the small speakers being damaged when used on the TV and the Yamaha? 3) If the System Center is broken, can I use the Subwoofer and the rest of the small speakers on the Yamaha? And how do I do that when the connections on the Subwoofer don't seem to fit on the Yamaha?
