I just bought a pioneer VSX 1018 ahx reciever I also hooked up a Klipsch sub woofer. when I went thru the system set up and checked all the speakers work properly except for the subwoofer. There is a dedicated out for a subwoofer, i am using a Rockfish cable 15' cable.
So here is my headache all speakers except the sub work, I pulled the cable out of the back of the sub, I can make the sub humm by just laying the cable at the input port on the back of the sub but when i plug the cable all the way in the sub will not produce sound when i watch a movie or listen to music. Please any help will be greatly appreacieated.

If the BX10 is a powered sub. Then there should be a subwoofer out socket on the Receiver. If it doesn't have one it might not be compatible with a powered sub. Otherwise follow the instructions for the sub. Some none powered subs simply connect to the left and right speaker terminals.
You do not mention if this is a Pioneer VSX type receiver or if it is a Stereo receiver. Assuming the first, you need to enable the Sub-out output. The Owners manual will show you how. Then you should connect from the Sub-out using a good quality RCA type sub specific if possible cable to your Klipsch Sub. Play with all the levels until you are satisfied. It will take some time to set up properly.
It can be many things it possible the amp cannot handle the 4 ohm load and simply goes into power protection mode. Also make sure your using the correct gage wire to run power from your battery to the amp to thin and it wont have enough power to perform.
if you wanted to use your receiver as your controller and source then try to find out the receivber has got a bridge (jumper) between the pre-amp stage and the power amp stage. if your receiver does not have that, then you can just connect your receiver tape record out to one of your DSP inputs. subwoofers, the DSP has got a sub woofer out connector. you can use that (RCA type) to your sub woofers. put in series because DSP has got only one output for sub. or, you can connect your subs directly to the mains speakers, parallel connections. maybe one sub to your left and the other to your right channel.
If I am not mistaking here, you need a self powered subwoofer to use with this unit. Those are line driven outputs for this unit. Make sure there is a wall plug on the sub that is plugged in. Good Luck
This receiver can only take a self powered subwoofer I'm afraid. You could get a power amp and power the sub like that but in the long run I really think you would be happyer to get a new subwoofer. Good Luck
