This could be either the speaker that is blown and making the noise or part of the amplifier being smoked causing distortion that sounds like a blown speaker. WIthout taking it apart and looking at waveforms on an oscilloscope, I can't tell you which is the problem. I'd ask a local shop to test it for you or if you can, exchange the actual speakers between the two. IF the problem stays with the bad box, the problem is with the amp, if the good speaker works OK in the "bad box" then the speaker is blown.

Keep us posted.

    Joshua,



    I'm not really sure what you expected from this site. Can you explain why you rated this as a "Thanks for trying"? I'd like to know. I have provided a few things for you to try as I can not see nor hear the problem. You need to be my eyes and ears. I'd like to help further, but without additional info, there is little I can do. Lets help each other to resolve your problem.



    Thanks,

    Dan

PROBLEM WITH SUB WORKING ON A PIONEER VSXAX5I RECIEVER


The problem is in the powered sub, the buzzing sound is caused by one or more defective audio output ic's that drive the subwoofer directly, service is the only option to remedy the situation.

First; power conditioner won't do anything for your issue. It's not crosstalk (unless it's a wireless spkr) On your sub are cables mark + & - ? If so make sure they're attached accordingly to back of receiver/amp. Your distortion sounds like a phase issue. I'm also curious how store performed diagnostics?

Manuals help a lot.

Tell us about the speakers. Maybe they're not compatible.

As far as what to expect to hear from surrounds, that depends on the sound engineering.

Test tones for speaker setup will get it all dialed in. Page 17.

I have a Fisher RS-909 Surrond Sound amplifier. It has no "sub out" jack. I had the sub-woofer working in the past by wiring it as shown in the manual. The problem is that the system was in...


Alright i had a chance to look over things, this is how you are going to hook up the sub. first we'll be connecting the surround sound unit to the sub woofer.
surround sound unit sub woofer
left front: positive (+) <-----to------------->(+) left speaker level in
negative ( - )<- - -to- - - - - - ->( - ) left speaker level in

right front: positive (+) <-----to------------->(+) right speaker level in
negative ( - )<- - -to- - - - - - >( - ) right speaker level in

now that the surround sound unit is connected to the sub woofer you will need to connect the front surround sound speakers to the sub woofer.
sub woofer front surround sound speaker
left speaker level out (+)<-----to--------> (+) left front speaker
left speaker level out( - ) <- - - to- - - - ->( - ) left front speaker

right speaker level out (+)<-----to--------> (+) right front speaker
right speaker level out( - ) <- - - to- - - ->( - ) right front speaker

Alright now that the wires are all over the place and plugged in
turn everything on and see how it sounds. let me know if everything is working as it should. if you need help with anything else or if something does not seem right please feel free to contact me via e-mail or phone

Old receiver, new subwoofer- how to connect?


NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Never connect speaker outputs to anything that looks different, like RCA connections. Can you say crispy critter?

Your receiver sounds like it won't send specific Subwoofer of Low Frequency Effects information to the Sub so we're cheating by adding a sub. If you named the model of each we may have a better shot at naming the output you need to use.

I'm curious. How did you have the old passive sub working?

Basically what you may have to do is feed (probable) full range audio to the Sub using an RCA splitter to combine the L and R outputs found, oh, at any Tape Output that you're not using. The Sub will only reproduce what it can. The presence of higher frequencies won't bother it. If it has its own volume control you'll be able to balance its volume with the rest of your speakers.

Amatuer needs sub-woofer advice for Pioneer VSX-454...


Based upon your description, the subwoofer is just a speaker and is taken from the normal speaker outputs. Run your A channel to the sub and then from the sub to the left and right front speakers. That should do it.

Distorted sound coming out of SW channel only


try turnind down the sub from the amp itself it might be putting out more volts than the subs input can handle check your standing wave feature to make sure the trim is not up too high

Buzzing emitted by vsx-409


Could be the result of having DTS compatible equipment connected through the analog inputs on the VSX-409D. Noise and distortion will result as essentially the DTS signal is being played back undecoded. If this is the case you'll have to connect your LD or CD player through the digital connections (coax or optical) and set 'Signal Select' (button on front) to 'Digital'.
