Make sure the subwoofer is set to On in the setup menu. Should be able to access this setting from the front panel, using the click wheel and the left/right buttons above the wheel. Push the setup button to get to the right menu. Set subwoofer to 'on' and speaker size to 'small'. This receiver has a fixed crossover, so make sure to turn the crossover setting on the subwoofer to the maximum setting (highest frequency) to ensure no signal is lost.

Can I and how do I hook a subwoofer to my Sony str-de705 receiver


It depends. You can connect an active (self-powered) sub-woofer to the STR-DE705. You can't connect a passive sub-woofer that needs power from the receiver. If the sub-woofer has its own power cord, then it's an active unit. See https://us.en.kb.sony.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/37001 for more information. You'll also need a RCA subwoofer cable. This is like a RCA audio cable but only has one plug on each end. (Using a regular audio cable may risk a short when the extra plugs hit something.) Many subwoofers will come with the audio cable. If you do need one, they are available at most places that sell cables, including Amazon.com .

Here is an example of an active subwoofer: https://us.en.kb.sony.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/37001 . This is the Yamaha YST-SW012.

I hope this helps.

I have a sony str de 325 receiver....what sub woofer will go with it and where do you plug it into the receiver?? Thanks


You will need a powered sub, one that has a built in amp. It will also need speaker terminal type inputs. Use the B channel to send signal to the woofer. Since the audio from the B channel is full range, use the crossover on the sub to determine which frequencies you want to hear. I would start at 100Hz and go up and down from there. Use the gain to adjust the volume in relation to the other speakers. The sub volume will be affected by the master volume.

Connecting a Sony Subwoofer SA-W2500 to a STR DE 598


It is based on your sub-woofer type..whether powered or passive sub woofer..
Assume that you have powered one..RCA sub woofer jack is the best to feed it ..you should use RCA sub woofer output on your receiver as well..good luck

When iturn on my Sony STR-DE325 it goes into protect mode


Try disconnecting all of your speakers, and then turn on you unit. If you have a defective speaker, or a short in your wires, your unit will go into protect mode. If your unit seems ok with the speakers disconnected, then turn unit off, hook up one of the speaker leads and try it. This way you can isolate the problem.......

Good Luck,

RCA Sub-Woofer


Did you try making sure the subwoofer is turned on under the set up menu on the Sony Receiver?

Press Set Up, Press the left or right button above the scroll wheel until you get to SW. It should say SW: ON or SW: OFF. If it says SW: OFF, use the Scroll wheel to scroll right until it says SW: ON. Also, make sure you aren't in 2CH mode, try A.F.D or surround sound.

SONY STR-DG510 Sub woofer does not work


You will need a powered sub because your receiver does not amplify in the sub output.
