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.

I have the Klipsch Sub-10 Subwoofer, and it no longer plays music. Now it hums (vibrates constant) and corresponds (louder or softer) with volume control. Light is home but no one home situation. V


Does the subwoofer have the same hum when the input cables have been unplugged? Many input cables use very fine conductors, which often fail. A bad cable will often introduce a hum and prevent a signal from getting through. If the noise is still present without the input cable(s) connected, then repair options are limited. No schematics are available. There's a daughterboard that has been available, but its failure usually causes the system to die (short-circuit). The cost to repair the amplifier may be close to the cost to replace the entire sub.

Have you got the sub defined to the Onkyo correctly? Try conencting the sub's input to one of the Tape Out connectors and play some FM through it. That will prove if the sub is alive. The nwe can troubleshoot the correct failing device.

I have no output from subwoofer


Hello Fixya customer,

Thank you for your question.

Please check that the sub woofer and RCA cable are working by removing the RCA wire from the Sub woofer output of the Onkyou and touching the center terminal of the RCA plug. You should here a hum when it is touched.

If you get the hum, then the next step is to "Clear" the Onkyo by holding down the "VCR and Stby" button until you see "Clear" on the display. Warning, this will clear any settings special that you have made to the receiver, but will get you back to the Factory settings.

Lastly, check various sound fields, and the Sub woofer volume setting, if you still do not get sound, please have a Onlyo service center verify the output.

Thank you using Fixya.

Kube 2 subwoofer hum


The Kube Sub-woofer is earthed via its 3 pin plug. The Onkyo and other components I have in my system are not (they are double insulated). During normal operation, a difference in electrical potential can exist between these components in the system. I found that this potential was finding a path to earth via the audio cable and on through the subwoofer's earth. The path was via the earth portion of the audio cable and so gave the hum irrespective of volume levels set either on the Onkyo or the sub.

The fix is to ground the Onkyo to the sub. I used a length of electrical cable between a panel mounting screw on the back of the sub and a screw on the casing at the rear of the Onkyo. Try it out with a piece of cable manually touching screws with the bare ends of the cable until you find ones that give continuity( the hum will go immediately). I then crimped a small fork end electrical fitting onto each end of the cable which can be slid under the slighly loosened screw head and resecured. All I hear now is the fan on the Blu-Ray player!

ONKYO TX-SR606 Single output to TV


Hi there. for your receiver, the only time it can upconvert is when you go out as HDMI. In your current hookup (component out to tv) the signal from your cable (using a composite) will not be able to pass through the component cable. This means you either have to hook up your cable box using a component cable as well or add a composite cable (yellow) from monitor out of the receiver to the tv. Page 22 of the manual will show a diagram of the video signal flow. hope this helps.. ^_^

I contacted the dealers where I bought the amp and they suggested that I connect speaker cable to both the left and right front speakers and use that to connect the subwoofer.

However, whilst this has worked (sort of) it is evident that to achieve the best results, I will need to replace my existing sub with a powered one in the near future.

Only a temporary fix I'm afraid, but it got the job done.

Hi there. If you are running a 5.1 speaker system, make sure your surround speakers are on the surround terminal NOT ON THE SURROUND BACK. the surround back is only for the 7.1 speaker system.

Onkyo Subwoofer Pre Out Problem


May not necessarily be the out put, discontect the sub from the receiver and see if it still makes a hum, Making sure that you turn auto on, off on the sub woffer.
If it still makes a hum, then you have a earthing problem, you can get a earth filter put on your internal wiring in your home, or you can remove the earth pin on your sub woffer
