Sony XAV-W1 subwoofer rca's not seen

I installed a Sony XAV-W1 and connected 2 sets of RCA's to it. One set to the front output the other to the Sub output. My problem is that the HU is not seeing the rca's connected to the sub out and giving me sub control from the hu. The manual says to connect everything then press the reset button for the system to see the cables but that is not working. Any sugestions?

Pull the power connection out completely for 20 min... This should reset the system all together. Just make sure everything besides the power stays connected.

I have a Sony XAV-W1 Dash Head Unit for my car. It has a Sub-Out port (which obviously takes in one RCA Cable). I don't know how to use it. Can anyone guide me?


The Sub Output is a dedicated subwoofer preout the sends signal to your sub amp and allows you to set and control you sub independently from the rest of your speakers. You must have a separate subwoofer amp to utilize thus feature.

Can I use a JX-S900 Y/C separated I/O to run two subwoofers out of same reciever??


Yes, on two conditions:

1) the JX-S900 needs to be a proper matrix switcher. It has to have the ability to route 1 input to more than one output.

2) the sub signals need to be low level RCA/phono, and not high level speaker wire connections. That's not just about the type of connector. It's about the signal going through those wires. A low level RCA/phono sub connection conducts a maximum 0.7 Volt. A speaker wire connection can transmit 30 Volts! If you put 30 Volts in to a line level switching device such as the JX0S900 you'll fry it.

Provided that the above two criteriia are both met, then yes it will work.

  • Connect the AV receiver's sub out to Source 1 - white RCA phono.

  • Connect the two subs mono LFE Left input (white RCA) or the single black RCA/phono inputs to the JVC's outputs 1 and 2 - white RCA/phono.

  • Set the source routing: input 1 goes to output 1 and 2

New sony receiver str-dh740 has 2 RCA plugs for sub woofer. How do I connect to psw350


only use one of the outputs from the rear of the str-dh740. and use a rca "y" adapter where you plug it into the subwoofer so that both of the inputs on the sub are getting a signal.

How do i connect subwoofer (canton movie 125 mx) to amplifier(onkyo txnr609)? there is one subwoofer output on the amplifier with either L & R(mono) high level input or L & R(mono) low level input...


Connect front the sub out (single) on the amp to one of the rca inputs on the sub, This will work reasonably well but to make the most from the sub buy a 2 rca to 1 rca cable and use it to connect both rca inputs on the sub to the single output on the amp

Im not sure which plugs I should plug my RCA cables that come from my amp to the reciever. I dont know if its the "back RCA output" or the "Front RCA output" or the "subwoofer...


First of all get yourself a Y-LINK cable. (single male RCA on one side/ double female RCA on the other side) Connect the Y-LINK to your head unit sub woofer output with the stereo RCA that leads to the sub woofer amplifier. Now you are connected to the correct output. I do not know what head unit you had connected before to base your comparison, however there is a output voltage difference from one head unit to another, (1.2V, 2V, 2.5V, 4V, 5V) and that is what determines where the gain on the amplifier should be set to. Always match the headunit output voltage with the amplifier gain control to be the same. It is not uncommon for some entry level units to have a single sub woofer output. dreamsystems

How to connect unpowered subwoofer to receiver with RCA sub out?


In order for this to work, you will need an external amplifier. Your receiver is set up to use a "powered" sub. With only speaker connections on the sub, it is a "passive" sub requiring a separate amp.

Connect powered subwoofer


  • If your receiver has a dedicated subwoofer line level output, we recommend connecting your subwoofer to this jack. Most receivers will have just one (mono) subwoofer output, while quite a few subs require two inputs. You can use an RCA "Y" adapter cord , which is a cable with one female RCA jack at one end, and two male RCA plugs at the other. Some receivers require menu settings (such as "sub-on" or "front speakers-small") that must be made before the sub output will be active.

    Pioneer DEH-P3000IB... Hook up RCA cables to 2, 2 channel amps for front and rear control. Supposed to be able to set rear to either rear full or sub... can't find how and all I'm getting is sub response.


    Here are the directions according to the manual:

    1 Use MULTI-CONTROL to select
    SW CONTROL.
    2 Press MULTI-CONTROL to display the
    setting mode.
    # Press BACK to return to the previous display.
    3 Press MULTI-CONTROL to select the segment
    you wish to set.
    Press MULTI-CONTROL repeatedly to switch
    the segment in the following order:
    REAR SP (rear speaker setting)—PREOUT
    (RCA output setting)
    4 Use MULTI-CONTROL to select the desired
    setting.
    Turn to change the setting.
    When REAR SP (rear speaker setting) is selected.
    REAR SP:SUB W(subwoofer)—REAR SP:FULL
    (full-range speaker)
    When PREOUT (RCA output setting) is selected.
    PREOUT:SUB W (subwoofer)—PREOUT:REAR
    (full-range speaker)
    # When no subwoofer is connected to the rear
    output, select REAR SP:FULL.

    Hope this helps.

    Subwoofer connection


    if this is ao powered sub, that plugs into the wall, there should be no problems, if it is powered solely by the reciever it may work fine but be sure you dont exceed amperage on the subwoofer.

    Cerwin vega ht-10d subwoofer won't work in yamaha reciever


    Well, as I know, your Cerwin Vega subwoofer is designed for use with stereo systems. Therefore, it has only 2 channels for input, and 2 channels for output as well. However, you can try this out; the first thing I suggest is that you hook up your main front channels through the subwoofer. All you have to do is to connect the subwoofer input to the front channel output on the amp, then hook up your front speakers to the satellite output on the subwoofer. As long as you make sure that system is working on 8 ohms, I believe this can activate the subwoofer.
