Subwoofer won't work after Auto Setup

I have the RX-V659 which is very similar to v661. After the auto setup, the subwoofer (Polk PSW404) will not work. During the auto setup, the sub works fine. I had the unit set up previously, and it worked great. I purchased a new plasma, and had to rearrange speakers and enterainment center. I cannot figure this out. I've tried manually changing the settings, but nothing seems to work.

Can anyone help me???

Thank you!

    hi if it did not work disconnect all speakers and set all the front speakers to small and increase the frequency on the subwoofer to 90hz or more to determine if there is any sound. if you use the auto set up it normally sets the front speakers to large in that case there wouldn't be any low frequency to the subwoofer. finally touch the tip end of the RCA cable before connecting there should be a sound in that case the cable works also play music with big bass before you connect it. hope this can help you.

Have you looked at the manual?

The NEW thing doesn't work.

Does the subwoofer work for setup? That would certify the hardware and speaker definitions are ok.

The PC has the responsibility for defining and sending out something between headphone and full-blown 7.1 though the HDMI. Check your PC sound controls and the "Information on HDMI" section of the manual.

For the radio mode, probably the only analog stereo source you have, read up on the STRAIGHT decoding mode and Sound Field programs.

I cant seem to get the sub woofer to put out sound


Hello, are you using the subwoofer output on the receiver?
Did you turn the subwoofer on within the receivers onscreen setup?
this requires going into the menu selecting speaker setup and telling the receiver that you do have a subwoofer connected.

if you have done all this I would try to fist make sure the sub is working. easiest way is to plug a source directly into the rca inputs of the sub and see if it powers up. A CD player or even an ipod with the right connector will work.

if the sub powers on and produces sound then the issue is in the receiver and you will have to play with the setup. Its possible that the output jack is bad, I've had that happen when I pulled on an RCA cable and pulled out the socket but that's rare.


Is the subwoofer set to turn on automaticly when a signal is sensed?
does it have a switch to select high or low level inputs (speaker jacks or RCA connections on the back)

hope that helps
remember start by making sure the sub works then figure out why the receiver isn't sending a signal.

Subwoofer plug broken?


Most likely the plug is ok but the level control for the subwoofer will need to be readjusted in the receiver, If the level cannot be raised making sure your source being used has subwoofer information, then there could be a problem in that circuit.

No Soound on Subwoofer from Yamaha RX-V363


I have the same setup. Are you going out of the subwoofer output of the reciever? (it's purple.) then into the LFE jack of the subwoofer (also purple.) That's the only connection you need besides power. If you have those right, try using your cable for something else to make sure the cable is good. Is the indicator of the subwoofer green? Mine comes on with the reciever. Good luck!

No auto setup display on TV


For the setup functions you have to use either the monitor out (a yellow jack on the top-right corner of the back) or you have to use component video out. HDMI will NOT work for setting up the system. This is one complaint to Yamaha from all of us.

No sound out of subwoofer


Connection from receiver subwoofer output jack RCA plug male go into your powered subwoofer low level input with other end of cable, then you need to select Subwoofer YES/NO on the JVC receiver speaker setup menu option, select YES if this is a powered subwoofer you are using, should power up the subwoofer, may have to adjust a test tone balance for multi speaker output also, try trimming up on the subwoofer channel to initiate the signal on if the sub has an auto-on feature.
