Connection a JBL surround cinema speakers with sub to a Yamaha

I have all my speakers working to my JBL surround system but my sub does not seem to be connected correctly. When watching tv you really cannot hear the bass only a hum from the amp. I have the subs LFE input connected to the sub output on the receiver. Is this correct?

If you do not have the digital hook up from the tv to the reciever
connection a JBL surround cinema speakers with sub - 304c659.gif then you will not get the subwoofer sounds or the dolby digital sounds
if you don't have this on your tv then just turn off the dolby digital when watching the tv , and you should be able to hear the subwoofer thru the virtual surround sound
hope this info is worth a fixya and if you need other help then just ask me and
i'll be glad to help

How do I connect jbl psw1200 sub?


Well, it depends what you're connecting it to....

If it's a stereo receiver or Hi-Fi amp, then the speaker cables that would normally go direct to the front L & R speakers now connect to the sub's L&R speaker OUT sockets. Then you need two extra lengths of speaker cable. These go from the receiver's speaker outs to the sub's L&R speaker IN sockets.

Connecting to a surround receiver, just use the phono/RCA cable from the receiver's "Sub Pre Out" to the white phono/RCA labeled Low Level IN.

Have you tried the "Simulated" surround setting?

If you don't get sound in "Simulated" mode then you have probably lost the surround channels.

If you do get sound then your "Media"
is not recorded with a surround "Track". or the surround "Processor" may have issues that need to go to the repair shop.

I got a teac ag-v8060 audio/video surround receiver and I'm tryin to hook up some surrounsound speakers along with a jbl g cinema sub can you describe where the wires go in the back of receiver? The sub...


On the back of the receiver, there could be "pre out-subwoofer". If your subwoofer has the same type cable input, that would indicate it is a powered(amplified) sub. Connect those two. If subwoofer only has red/black speaker inputs, it is a passive sub, which means spkr signal runs thru it and then to your main left and right spkrs.. Run your receiver main or front spkr left (red/black) and right (red/black) to those corresponding sub inputs, and then sub spkr outputs to each of your main left/right spkrs..

For surround, on the back of the receiver, there should be spkr outputs (red/black) noted as "rear".

Just make sure red to red, and black to black.

Hope this is helpful.

Partial sound from my JBL E60 Towers


Are there 4 inputs on the back of the speakers? If so, you either need to hook up all four, or connect the upper and lower inputs to each other. The speakers come with gold plates that connect the upper and lower inputs, but you can just use speaker wire to connect them. At least that is what I did on the used set of speakers I bought when one plate was missing.

Panasonic multi connections


HDMI audio in this setup is a one way street. Audio will not come back from the TV to the audio system.
Sorry as you have not shown the model number I can not advise on the system fully.
However, it is standard on the current Panasonics to use Optical audio as a return feed or phonos.
Optical would be best as it carries full digital surround, whilst the phonos only carry "surround"
It may help for you to look a the new Panasonic web sit as there is now an interactive "How to connect your system"

Friend gave me a jbl surround system to go with my 52" sony hd tv. It has four speakers. three sat 20 and one bass 20. going to a rca stva 3970 receiver. didn't have instructions to go with it.


You need two more speakers to get surround sound,ie> two front one center and two for surround,then you need a home cinema amp to run the speakers and decode the sound from your tv,sky,dvd etc,and the sub gives you your bass.

Hope this helps.

Surround sound from Sky +


To upmix 2-channel sound (such as that in a TV broadcast) into 5.1 sound, press AMP and then SUR. DECODE until "PL II Movie" is displayed. This will give you "cinema-like" surround sound from a 2-channel source.

You can also assign this to one of your "Scenes" by following the procedure for scene assignment on page 26 of your manual.
