HTS3440 Philips No Sounds from Subwoofer

I have a Philips Magnavox HTS3440 system.  I am getting very low audible sound from the smaller speakers and no sound from the subwoofer at all.  I have tried checking the settings and there is nothing unusual/that has been changed.  It used to loose sound when a loud action scene came on but now there is just no sound from the subwoofer and very little from the rest.  DVD works fine.  Only issues are the sound.  Please help!

I have a subwoofer and speakers from a surround sound system but the dvd part has blown up can i use the subwoofer and speakers with another unit


sure u can. but depends either your system is active or passive. active means the speakers (or sub) driven by built-in amplifier, so the dvd delivers a low signal to the speakers amp and they amplify the sound for the speakers. passive means the amplifier is built into the dvd and delivers the amplified sound signal to the speakers thru speaker cable. if you tell me model number and brand i can find out what type they are.

Sound on the speaker is very low voices are barely audible. have tried all eq settings but sound remains low please help


Look through your receiver's DSP sound settings. When you locate the volume control for the center channel, adjust it to be in balance with the music and sound FX. Often, I just forget about the DSP and run the sound in stereo with subwoofer. Helps to minimize the different audio mixes between different TV STATIONS AND DVDs.

Can we use the subwoofer as an amplifier for speakers? it has jacks for speaker in/out, but i can't figure out how to make it work because the speakers have no sound.


I don't believe this hookup is amplified; but, if you have used the regular unfiltered speaker connections from your receiver/amplifier to hookup the subwoofer, the system will pass the signal thru the outputs subject to the crossover adjustment on the back panel. You cannot get the full signal if your system is sending only the bass signal to the subwoofer. I have copied the instructions below from the manual. You would set the high freq crossover to the low end of your satellite's frequency range. The full manual is here: http://www.jbl.com/EN-US/Products/Pages/ProductSupportDetails.aspx?PID=PSW-D110

High-Pass Control
• If you hooked up your subwoofer
as shown in Hookup
3 on page 4, you also have
the capability of adjusting
the high-pass frequency.
The High-Pass control
determines the frequency at
which the main speakers
will start reproducing
sounds. If your main speakers
can comfortably reproduce
some low-frequency
sounds, also set this control
to a lower frequency
setting, between 50Hz –
100Hz. This will concentrate
the subwoofer’s
efforts to the ultradeep
bass sounds, while your
main speakers continue to
reproduce the mid-bass
information. If you are
using smaller bookshelf
speakers that do not extend
to the lower bass frequencies,
set the high-pass crossover
control to a higher setting,
between 125Hz – 180Hz.
With this setting, your main
speakers will not have the
burden of reproducing any
low-frequency sounds.
• If you hooked up your subwoofer
as shown in Hookup
1 on page 3, the high-pass
frequency is fixed at 180Hz.
• If you hooked up your subwoofer
as shown in Hookup
2 on page 4, there is no
high-pass control. Unless
your receiver/amplifier
incorporates a high-pass
crossover, your main speakers
will continue to get a
full-range signal.
Final adjustment and blending
of the low-pass and high-pass
controls may evolve over several
listening sessions. A good
starting point would be to set
both the low- and high-pass
controls to the same frequency
and adjust from that point.

Surround Sound Speaker


It sounds like you need to define the speakers to the PC. Find the icon that controls your Sound Card and dabble with it.

Low pass crossover


Low-pass crossover
Both sets of inputs sum the left and right channels together and the
resulting signal is passed through an adjustable low-pass crossover before
being amplified. The crossover control allows you to adjust the upper limit
of the subwoofer's frequency response from 40 to 120 Hz. The subwoofer's
response will begin rolling off above the frequency you set this control to.
You should set the crossover frequency to obtain a smooth and seamless
transition from the subwoofer to the main speakers in your system. If your
main speakers are smaller units with limited low frequency output, you
may wish to choose a higher frequency (such as 100-120Hz) than you
would with larger speakers which have greater low frequency output. With
larger speakers, you might start with this control set lower, such as 80Hz.

Subwoofer humming/buzzing


It sounds like one of the internal solder welds to the cable or a/v connections inside the cable box is bad.

Acoustimass Subwoofer has a low "hummm" sound when turned on.


Sounds like an inadequate ground wire in the signal cable. You may have to replace the cable between the reciever and bass module. It also, however, may be IN the bass or reciever module.

The 'Subwoofer' output on your receiver is used to connect to a powered subwoofer with a built in amplifier. Your KLH speakers use what is called a 'passive' subwoofer, it gets its power from the receiver and then passes the higher frequencies to the left and right front speakers after taking out the low frequencies for the subwoofer. A speaker system with a passive subwoofer is good for casual listening, but a powered subwoofer is required for really hearing low frequencies and rumble in movies. The KLH speakers you have were highly rated in their time for their price. The four satellite speakers and center channel speaker have very good sound compared to the little 'midget' surround sound speakers most people buy today.

Here's how you hook them up:

- The left and right front channels from your receiver terminals should go to the terminals on the subwoofer marked 'From Amplifier'
- Your left and right front speakers are then connected to the subwoofer terminals marked 'To Speakers', they do not connect directly to your receiver.
- Your center speaker is connected to your receiver terminals marked 'Center'
- Your rear speakers are connected to your receiver terminals marked 'Surround'

That should get you up and running. If the bass isn't good enough with the passive subwoofer, you can get a decent powered subwoofer like the Velodyne VX-10 for about $150 and 'kick it up a notch'. Good luck and enjoy....
