Question about Onkyo TX-SR606 Receiver
I have a Onkyo TX-SR606 and a Klipsch 12" subwoofer. All I get is a hum from the sub. I'm using a Belkin subwoofer cable. I know the subwoofer is working because when I connect my mps player directly to the sub I hear the bas from the music. What are options?
Also, it could possibly the preout terminal itself that is not working. One way to prove that is by transferring the subwoofer cable from the preout and temporarily transfer it to the tape out section. If it ouputs sound from there, then that means the speaker and the cables are working fine and it's just the preout terminal itself that is not picking up anything. ^_^

I have a ONKYO TX2100 with an RCA disk player with 2 speakers. The player shows the disks playing but there is no sound. Formerly worked.

One option is to try different cabling. If its working with the player directly its something in between the player in the sub. (Onkyo or cables) and my bet is on the cables.
Both Onkyo and Klipsch make solid equipment, as you know. You were smart enough to buy quality hardware, that makes it easier to figure out what its not.
If the cables offer to much resistance (16 or 32 ohms) and the sub is 8 ohms that might have something to do with it. Try to match the impedance (ohms) of the device and cable.
Good Luck, Post updates

I had the same problem with the 706 I just got. In my case the problem was with the "listening" mode. Apparently the default setting is 'stereo' for all input sources (DVD, CD, tuner, etc.). In this mode, the subwoofer doesn't seem to be active...regardless of the media that it's playing.
HOWEVER, once I selected a different listing mode (i.e. 'T-D' ) the subwoofer kicked right on...the sound is nice and full. I just got the thing yesterday, so haven't had much chance to determine other listening modes that also operate the subwoofer.

At the Onkyo, check to make sure you have run the speaker setup starting on Page 40. If that doesn't work...
Disconnect the subwoofer pre-out at the Onkyo and move it to the VCR Out, tune an FM station and be ready for some real loud subwoofer output if your sub has no volume control of its own. If you can hear the sub, it works and it's back to the Onkyo. If not, the unnamed sub
