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.

Have sony xav-60 head unit trying to install a rear view camera, but having issues getting unit to switch over when in reverse what wires need to go where camera has yellow video output 1 red wire, 1 black...


You might try the truly wireless QuickVu(TM) Wireless Backup Camera. Run the yellow RCA cable from the receiver to your Sony unit, if it has an RCA input. The QuickVu camera has no wires, so that part is really easy. Buy direct from the manufacturer!

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

Gettin feed baq from the subwofer output still


#1 you need a ground loop isolator to put on the RCA cables. that should fix the problem... put one off the amp leading to the sub also cause that will also fix it these gorund loop isolators can be picked up at any electronic installer shop.., you might be able to find them at radio shack to but i would not buy those cause they dont work as well as the better ones, i would suggest any auto alarm radio installer shop.... hope this helps you...

Sub output


With RCA cables. Just plug into the preamp outputs on the back that are labeled for "subwoofer" and run them to your amp. In your on-screen EQ, you'll have a separate adjustment for the sub (which adjusts that set of preouts, without affecting the tone in the rest of the speakers).

you have to get a splitter so you can plug both RCA jacks into the sub output. Yes you can controll the sub volume from the unit. The center jack is another output for a center speaker.
