First thing has it a sub phono feed on the rear normally black socket if yes then go into the amp preset /the speaker set up and either the level is off or turned down thats all it can be . check the 5.1 setup pioneer amps some models dont work in dolby 2 the sub socket also use good quality cables . how old is the amp just out of interest.

Power sub woofer is not working on my pioneer vsx-81txv everything is working all the speakers except the power sub connection at the back all i can hear is the hissing sound when i try to connect the sub...


Hissing? How loud? A sub isn't even capable of making high frequency sounds at normal volumes.

The Pioneer manual would tell you how to enable and test the subwoofer output.
Page 17 and the MACCV procedures on Page 33 (auto) or 43 (manual)

I have my vsx-1018ah receiver hooked up in for 7.1. Everything was fine for months. Now the back right speaker won't work. Speaker is fine, connection is good. Tried hooking up a different speaker and...


Assuming you're using the Surround Back speakers for their primary purpose, let's establish that there is something in the way of programming being routed to that speaker. Fire up the speaker level setup procedure and use any handy audio device (*) to see if a signal is present at the Surround Back Pre Out jack. If not, that speaker will never, uh, speak.

* For this test you could use your powered subwoofer. You DO have one, right? Just swap the RCA cable from Sub W Pre Out to the SB R Pre Out jack to see if anything appears there.

Need an owners manual


All you have to do is go to Pioneer's USA site and get the PDF file for the manual. You may need to Google search to find that link (just search on model no. and look for Pioneer site link) as it is a retired model. I just purchased one from BB but it was complete.

Sub woofer


Hello,
The subwoofer is totally independent from your Pioneer VSX-D412. You can check if it works like you did with a finger on the hot point of the RCA cable (not very good test, as you will hear noise and can't say if that means it works OK) or better connect a known receiver to the speaker connections in the sub and test to see if it’s working properly.
Regarding the receiver, you may not have enabled the VSX to output to the sub. Read the manual on how to check for that. Only Dolby Digital 5.1 signals will allow the sub out, in a receiver of this level. It normally will not let you use the sub in stereo mode. Some more complex units will allow you that, but I believe not this model.
Good luck

Check if Zone 2 is 'On' if it is set it to 'Off' using the front panel button. Hitting the 'Recieiver' and 'Setup' buttons is the correct way to set the system up.

Amatuer needs sub-woofer advice for Pioneer VSX-454...


Based upon your description, the subwoofer is just a speaker and is taken from the normal speaker outputs. Run your A channel to the sub and then from the sub to the left and right front speakers. That should do it.
