Setting subwoofer crossover when sub out on receiver has no contr

Hello: Can you help me?
I have 2 "Q series KEF IQ9" speakers and the Model "PSW 3500 Subwoofer".
My receiver is a JVC RX-5000VBK which has a subwoofer output. When connected it sends (unknown)  bass frequencies to the subwoofer without affecting  frequencies to the 2 main speakers. There is no crossover setting and according to JVC all frequencies are being sent to the IQ 9's.
I'd like to know how to set the crossover frequency on the subwoofer.
Since the IQ9"s go down to 38 Hz and the Sub's crossover frequency seems to start at 40 Hz should I just not set the crossover at all (?) or would setting it at the first or second LED light-I believe 50hz-- or-- 60hz  allow for a smoother transition?
(My other settings on the sub are "music" " slope 24b" " low pass" )
Thank you,
Irwin Rubin

You have it upon one of several truly odd "standards" in the AV industry but the answer is simple if not quite logical. You will use an RCA type cable from the Sub out or LFE on the receiver to just one of the two inputs on the subwoofer. I usually use the one on the right but it really doesn't matter. The other connectors would be for a system with out a sub out where the speaker wire would be run first to the subwoofer and then out to the speakers. This will not be used at all in your case.

Enjy!

The TX has speaker setup and test tones for setting the balance and distance with test tones and proving the hardware works. If that all works the difference is probably external or settings.

What is different between the music source(s) audio and the HD movie source(s) audio? Ask yourself, how would a sub make high frequencies go missing? It can't.


Your other speakers are responsible for conveying the high frequencies.

I have a Yamaha HTR 3063 reciever and I just got a PSW 2000 Kef sub and I can't get the sub to WORK NO MATTER WHAT I DO PLEASE HELP


That is a potentially great combination. I have a Yamaha receiver but I am not familiar enough with Kef to know but is it possible your receiver expects to be connected to a powered sub. Are you sure the Kef works by itself? Have you checked to see whether the receiver subwoofer output works with another speaker? Could receiver mode selection be a factor? My Yamaha switches various functions on and off depending upon your preference.

For what it's worth, the troubleshooting section of my Yamaha manual says a subwoofer no sound problem can be caused by selecting MAIN LFE/BASS OUT on the SET MENU when Dolby or DTS material is being played or selecting SWFR when a 2-channel source is being played. Something has to work!

Hello ! I'm not sure how to connect my kef psw 2500 sub to my yamaha amp. I've got a subwoofer out on my amp but there's 4 inputs on the sub and I don't no which one to use ! Please help as getting...


Just for clarity, I need to explain what the four inputs are on the KEF subwoofer. There is a left and right RCA input which is the input signal to the subwoofer and there is a left and right RCA output which is the High Pass output from the subwoofer.

On the back of the Yamaha receiver, you said you have a subwoofer output. This output is most likely the mono subwoofer part of the home theater system and can be used if you like. The left right signal input into the KEF is summed into mono so if you only connect one channel you will basically reduce the signal level by 1/2 (-3dB) but it will work fine.

Alternatively, if your Yamaha receiver has monitor out and monitor in, you can run the monitor output signals to the subwoofer and you can then run the high pass outputs from the subwoofer back to the monitor in. This will give you the subwoofer and provide a smoother signal matching with your audio system.

It is not always easy to connect the subwoofer up to an integrated receiver/home cinema system using the high pass channels of the subwoofer as you don't always have access to the analog output and input of the front channels. In this case, just use the Subwoofer output or just the monitor out only.

I hope this solution is helpful.

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.

OVERLOAD


First of all the KEF is a powered sub which means that it wants a line level signal NOT a speaker level. Send the signal from a tape output or pre-amp output to the sub input. The overload is because the impedence load for the speaker output is too low and looks like a short to the amp. Continued attempts to connect the system as described will result in damage to the output section of the amp.

Please let me know if you need more info.

I thinking of bying this Sub, but I have an old Yamaha RX-V660 receiver. Can I conect the Sub to that receiver and how?


Not very easily. Your receiver has no Sub Output. You really want a sub that supports hi-level inputs such as this: http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?Partnumber=300-633
Then you can run your front speakers through the sub.
The Kef site hints it may be possible to run high-level inputs to that sub by using RCA adapters.

HI,go into the yam setup menu and make sure you have the sub turned on and cross over set to about 80hrtz if this suits your speakers,set sub level to about -5 on amp and say half way on the sub,this should work if not pull out sub cable at amp and touch the end,you should get a hum,if not you may have no power,faulty cable or sub.
PS>make sure you are pluged into the sub PRE OUT and NOT the six channel in.
Hope this helps.
CABLE GUY.
