Question about Onkyo TX-SR606 Receiver

2 Answers

How do I connect an unpowered subwoofer to the Onkyo TX -SR606 .... I am a total numpty when it comes to this sort of thing and am rather surprised that it isn't a straightforward 'screw the cable to the posts' arrangement like the other speakers. Please don't tell me I now have to buy a powered sub on top of the £400 notes I've already spent on the unit itself.

I contacted the dealers where I bought the amp and they suggested that I connect speaker cable to both the left and right front speakers and use that to connect the subwoofer.

However, whilst this has worked (sort of) it is evident that to achieve the best results, I will need to replace my existing sub with a powered one in the near future.

Only a temporary fix I'm afraid, but it got the job done.

Hi there.. for passive subwoofers, you can put it on either front left or front right speaker terminals.

I have an ONKYO TX-SR606 receiver and I am trying to listen to FM radio using more than just the center channels. I have gone through the setup screens for the tuner and only Analog choices are available....


Hello,
In reality the correct way to listen to radio or any music source for that matter is in 2 channel stereo. What this means is that the front left and right will play and also the subwoofer. If you absolutely want all your speakers to play while listening to fm, than press the Multi channel button and set it to direct, or any other sound field that you may desire.
Good Luck

Unsure of audio setting using Onkyo TX-SR606 connected to PS3


The PS3 should default to the DOLBY DIGITAL sound output so your ONKYO should be setup to the Digital input, TV logic is a matrix similated multi-channel and I doubt if any PS software is in the DTS audio format, look at your game software disc`s and they will inform you of the audio capabilities.

Powered Or Unpowered Subwoofers For Onkyo TX-8511


Greg- Powered subs are better than non-powered subs (also known as passive subs), anyway I see the TX-8511 has no sub pre-out on the back panel, so you need to decide what sub you will use and run from the receivers left and right speakers output into a subwoofers speaker in from speakers then back out to speakers, look at the back of a subwoofer and you will see like 4 sets of speaker hookups 2 in and 2 out, what this does is takes the low end or bass and drops the signal to the subwoofer then takes the mids and highs out to your left and right speakers, unless your regular left and right stereo speakers have large woofers a sub is the way to go.

No sound from Sub Pre-out on Onkyo TX-SR606


Also, it could possibly the preout terminal itself that is not working. One way to prove that is by transferring the subwoofer cable from the preout and temporarily transfer it to the tape out section. If it ouputs sound from there, then that means the speaker and the cables are working fine and it's just the preout terminal itself that is not picking up anything. ^_^
