    When I set the amp to stereo, only the front two speakers make sound. After playing around, I discovered that is I set the amp to Double bass it works. I just need to set it back when I listen to a DVD because then there is too much bass.

When you are playing cd,s set your amp to stereo and the sub should work,prologic should never be used for playing music as this destorys the sound stage,if you are useing small speakers make sure you have set the size in the setup menu and the cross over to about 80hertz.

Hope this helps.

I have a Samsung smart tv and a yamaha RX-V592 there is no optical or hdmi on the reviever. I really would like to listen to my tv in surround sound. What can I do?


You need a new receiver, that unit will only do Dolby Pro Logic and all 5 speakers will play but you have to use the composite audio cables(The red and white cables for audio) to get the audio into your receiver and the yellow is video which you can run thru the Yamaha as well if you want any on screen adjustments that unit may have and refer to your owners manual http://download.yamaha.com/api/asset/file/?language=en&site=usa.yamaha.com&asset_id=35288
Net unit make sure it as least 5.1 and you can get Dolby Atmos on a few select models but whatever you get make sure you can pass you video signal thru with HDMI cables or component at the least, a couple of years ago I went from the Yamaha R-V1300 to their RX-A3020 and couldn't be happier, the new one which is the Yamaha RX-A3040 has Dolby Atmos but whatever you get and you are only running it at Dolby 5.1 at least each speaker will be discreet unlike in the Dolby Pro Logic mode you will be running, and 5.1 means 3 speakers in the front and 2 in the back or on the rear sides, so that is your 5 the .1 refers to the subwoofer because it get a one tenth of the signal the rest of the speakers can do so 6.1 means 3 in the front and 3 in the bab plus the .1 subwoofer. My system will do 11.2 but I will be just happy with 7.2 but until I move into a house I run it at 5.1. godd luck and feel free to hit me up with any questions...

Can't get the subwoofer to work when the fronts are set LARGE?


The manual implies that 'subwoofer=Yes' is independent of the rest of the speaker settings, but that it would be set AFTER selecting the other speaker configuration from the list of 11 possibilities.

Rear speakers are dead, never got them to work. Changed front to back and rears work so speakers and wireing are good. Is it possible that because I did not hook up a center speaker this is the problem?


if its a 5.1 channels it means 2 front speakers,2 rear speakers or either the center speaker or the subwoofer.try to hook up either center speaker or subwoofer.

Problem with a subwoofer output..


Check your settings in the Receiver Main Menu. Go to Speaker settings, then to Subwoofer, and select "Yes" or "On" or it may say "LFE or Both" choose "Both" Hope this helps. If you still have a problem, post a comment and I can help you some more

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. ^_^

Subwoofer: Active or non active?


Hello Smegboy,

Yes, you are right. This receiver is rated at 100WRMS output in all 5 channels (2-front, 1-center and 2-surround) while in Dolby Pro Logic operation. The subwoofer output is line level only (not amplified), which means you need a powered subwoofer to be connected to this output. A non-powered subwoofer could be used but, you need an additional amplifier connected to the subwwofer output from the receiver to drive it.
Let me know if this helps.

Subwoofer heard when only B speakers selected


This is really weird. Normally, the subwoofer must be turned off when you turn on B speakers. But, hold on.. I have recently tried to do the same thing as you do, and the result is the same as yours. The problem is that you have to turn off A speakers completely when you activate Bs. If you have an A/B Speakers switch, first push the A to turn them off, after that press "B" to listen to music downstairs. I hope it works.

Thumping Subwoofer


Ive seen this problem in alot of audio setups in vehicles but most peeps dont know this is not a good thing and will cause damage to your woofers or amp. 99% of the time it turns out to be as you said that bad boy muting circuit. alot of these curcuits do use separate transitors or diodes as mute switches but most of them are directly from the Microproccessor. Only way to trouble shoot this is with a schematic and a good car stereo tech. Good luck
