Question about JVC RX-818V Receiver

4 Answers

JVC RX-809V Hi, I've got this great receiver but can't seem to get the subwoofer working. I'm hooking up a Bose subwoofer that allows satellite speakers. I can only seem to get the satellites working when they are hooked up directly. My user manual has also disappeared. Any thoughts on how to proceed or where I can get some direction? Thanks in advance. Regards, Bruce

The Bose satellite system including small cubes and a woofer does not actually include a "subwoofer". The box that you are referring to as a "subwoofer" is actually just the woofer component of the speaker system, contrary to popular belief. You do not want to connect the cubes directly to your stereo as you will blow them if you do. The woofer contains a piece of electronic wizardry known as a "crossover". The crossover sends certains frequencies to the woofer and others to the cubes. You must connect the two together. I suggest you purchase a power subwoofer and connect to the subwoofer lineout on your receiver or buy the unit that was made to go with this receiver if there was one. Good luck!

Maybe you should check speaker settings? Is there options to set "speakers large/small"? Some receivers woudn't play sound on subwoofer when speakers are set to "large".

Go to the following website www.servicemanuals.net where you can get the service manual for $17.00, unbelieveable, don't you think? The service manual should help you sort out your hookup problems. Good luck.

How do i hook up bose accustimass speaker to my radio?


Acoustimass speakers need to be driven by a Hi-Fi amp/receiver or AV receiver. So the thing that's driving them needs to be an amplifier.

Unless your radio is also an amplifier then the radio and the Bose speakers are not directly compatible. There's no suitable output on the radio that generates the correct signal in sufficient power.

E1@cox.neti have a jvc rx-809v and I was wondering if it was posibbie to hook up an a sansui amp to compinsate for the lack of base


You mean 'bass'.

Amplifiers only amplify what is already there in the signal. By design, with all controls set to neutral or flat, they don't create or loose anything.

Speakers, on the other hand, are responsible for turning the electrical input into moving air. Good bass usually requires moving a lot of air.

Poor speaker placement or speakers wired out of phase with each other can **** the bass out of a room.

Web search for articles on bass response and speaker placement.

This receiver has a built-in Equalizer. Perhaps you could use IT to compensate for the tonal shortcomings of the speakers and environment.

Whatever componenets you have, satellite receiver, DVD Bluray, etc. should be hooked to tv for both audio and video, referrably by HDMI, then you can hook you digital optical out from tv to digital in on your Bose system. If you have component in to tv you can use that to but, you will ahve to provide audio tp tv through Ditgital in or composite cables(red, white, RCA)

Unable to receive optimum output. The bass is totally flat !


Hi, ok the Bose Acoustimass III system consists of two small cube speakers and one subwoofer unit called the Acoustimass bass module. If the subwoofer stops working, three points can be the cause of the failure. The Bose Acoustimass III is a passive system, meaning the speakers do not power themselves, but instead are connected to a receiver or amplifier. Thus, the amplifier, the speaker between the amplifier and the subwoofer, or the subwoofer itself could be the issue.

Things You'll Need:

* Amplifier
* Speaker cable
* Extra subwoofer


Instructions


Disconnect the speaker cable from the back of the Bose Accoustimass bass module and connect it to a subwoofer that is known to be working. If the subwoofer works, the bass module needs to be replaced.


Disconnect the speaker cable from the back of the receiver or amplifier you are using and from the back of the subwoofer in Step 1.


Connect a speaker cable that is known to be working between the back of the receiver or amplifier and the back of the Accoustimass module. If the module starts working, then the cable was the issue.


Disconnect the speaker cable from Step 3 from the back of the amplifier or receiver, then connect the cable to the subwoofer port on the back of an amplifier or receiver that is known to be working. If the subwoofer works, the receiver was the issue. If the subwoofer still does not work, verify that the speaker cable is in the subwoofer port of the receiver/amplifier and that the cable is connected securely to the subwoofer.



If you think you did the connection properly,Fine... If not you can use the manual from the below link and know how to connect it properly..
