Question about Onkyo TX-SR606 Receiver

No sound from Sub Pre-out on Onkyo TX-SR606

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?

    I have the same problem. any help

    I too have the same problem. I know the sub and the cables are good, as I've tested them on another receiver. In the receiver's programming, all of the options are turned on for the sub, and the sub's volume is turned up on both devices.

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. ^_^

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.

How do I test for a poor ground wire as opposed to a bad ground wire?


One tiny wire has very little resistance. Turn up your Ohm meter to it's highest setting. Be sure to have it calibrated exactly the same for each test (zeroed out). The very good connection should read infinite but the tiny connection should show a tiny bit of resistance. It's difficult but not impossible. Get a friend to help so the resistance in your body doesn't affect the data. Use one hand and new clips.

I have a Rowe R80 jukebox and after moving it it has no sound through the speakers I am in New Zealand


Well, in addition to all the fine suggestions that are here, I would like to add the simple and easy things that may have happened during the move.

IF YOU ARE NOT GETTING A LOUD POP WHEN THE MACHINE IS POWERED ON.......

1) Make sure that the wires on the terminals below are still connected to the screws. There is one ground and one each for left and right. The lower the tap the lower the (max) volume of the jukebox.If they are not connected there will be no sound.

There is a jumpers on the terminal strip where the volume control connects. Make sure that these connections are correct and tight. Also make sure that the jumpers did not fall off.

If you are getting the loud pop in the speakers when the power is turned on .....

Check the plug on the side of the mechanism, just below the back of the tone are.(looks like a little tube socket) Check to see that it is connected to the mech and the CORRECT PLACE on the amplifier. It mat be possible to have this end in the wrong place. bf77613e-82a3-4e37-b8fe-cc80f4d4dbcb.jpg

Check all all your connections against the pic.

I hope this was helpful.

I have a 1970's Panasonic Flip Clock Radio. (Model RC6530) The radio works just fine, but the flp clock stopped flipping. There is power going to the unit. I can also hear a low hum from the flip...


It looks like your problem might be an easy fix, at least. If the gear train between the motor and clock got stripped, you'd be in a bit more trouble. If the motor just isn't spinning, remove it from the side of the clock housing. There are 2 screws (or nuts) holding it in place. When you get it off, the cover for the motor will also be off. Apply some 3 in 1 oil, or perhaps just a tiny bit of penetrating oil, and give it a spin. From what I've read, it should do just fine. A lot of people use wd40, but I understand that can gum up over time.

This is a "at your own risk" type of repair, but as long as you unplug it before dismantling the radio, I think you'll be fine.
