Hi, first post here so hello all...

Hope you can help; I inherited a beosystem 2 with 4 beolab 6000 speakers, subwoofer, cd player, tv, bunch of beo4s, etc in the house I just bought. I've worked out most of the connectivity things and everything seems to be working apart from one.

The 4 beolab speakers should be set up as front and back. When I test them on the audio test thing (it sounds like waves) they work fine. When I try to then menu out of it, they switch back off. It's very frustrating!

Menu actions are..

Beo4 - atape, menu (a tape as I have an apple airport express plugged into the aux on the cd player)

3 for setup, 2 for sound

2 for speaker type, the rear speakers switch on, says beolab 6000 for front and back. Sound comes out of the speakers.

Click go, or list, or exit, and the speakers switch off (front still works)

Frustrating! 

I can't find anywhere that allows this to be setup! 5. Sound system only shows mono/stereo so there'sno option there.

Hi,

Welcome to Beoworld!

They turn off because they are not needed when you play music from a 2-channel source, if you play a movie or anything with 5.1 surround they will turn on.

If you want to play ordinary stereo music in all four speakers, press LIST on the Beo4 until the display reads SPEAKER and then press 4.

Perfect! What exactly does link/speaker /4 mean? 

I guess its something like 'list= do something a little bit not normal" then speaker and 4 mean use 4 speakers, is this right?

That's pretty much it! List brings up so-called soft-buttons, which are functions that's not used too often. You can add and remove these, so that it fits your setup perfectly.

And when you select SPEAKER you have 5 options:

1 - only centre speaker

2 - stereo - only left and right

3 - left, right and centre

4 - double stereo - both back and front speakers

5 - 5.1 surround
