Onkyo TX-DS656 Sub-out stopped working

Isolated to receiver as sub works fine on other system. Tried every possible switching configuration going back to User Guide. Attempted to drive sub from all connections in Multi-Channel Pod and no results. All other sound works fine. Thank you for your suggestions.

SOURCE: very low ouput from subwoofer preout

Onkyo to Onkyo, sub/receiver, problem fixed by inceasing volume on receiver. Seems the sub audio input does not pick up LF's below a certain output level from the receiver. So, guess I have to live with that. I only hope my nieghbor in the apartment below me can too!

SOURCE: Onkyo 805 sub hook up problem

Looking at the back of the sr805, there is a second subwoofer output, this one is the preout. 4 rca jacks to the right of the non-preout subwooker. Moved it, and all works now.

SOURCE: Onkyo 805 sub hook up problem

I made the same mistake when i hooked my REL sub up to the back of the 805.

The problem is there are 2 connectors on the back of the amp that are labeled as sub out. Look very closely, you will see that there are 2 grouped RCA outs. The RCA out group you are looking for differentiated by groups of "little white dots" all the way to the far right on the back of the amp. Hope this helps.

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

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. ^_^

Well the next step would be to make sure that all the settings are set to subwoofer yes, and set your crossover as well.  The amp usually has a crossover which tells the microprocessor which frequencys to send to the sub.

My receiver is not picking up the subwoofer, there is noise coming from the sub when I'm playing with the conection. The speakers are working and im getting prefect sound from them Please help.....


It would be helpful to know if this is a new problem on working equipment or a new problem on NEW equipment. And if you've flipped through the manual without success.

Of course you KNOW the sub must have its own amp, right?

First, you need to determine if the Onkyo or the unnamed sub is at fault.

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

How are you sourcing the program material to the sub? This TX-V940 receiver doesn't have specific sub support.

=== Just the same...

You need to first determine which is at fault - the sub or the receiver.

Connect the Sub Input to Tape Rec on the receiver (but DO NOT select Tape) and see if the sub reacts to your playing FM, for instance. If it works you need to go back to the receiver and the unknown method you're feeding the sub.

You could also test the sub with a CD player output but use a recording that starts low because you won't have volume control.

TX-DS656 - No display, still works.


Mine goes out sometimes, if I go to the reciever and hit the "Display" butoon, the display lights up dim, at same time, I hit the " Dimmer" botton on remote and display works for about 1-2 weeks. Don't know what is cuasing it, but that got the dispaly to work. Can deal with that I guess.

Powered Or Unpowered Subwoofers For Onkyo TX-8511


Greg- Powered subs are better than non-powered subs (also known as passive subs), anyway I see the TX-8511 has no sub pre-out on the back panel, so you need to decide what sub you will use and run from the receivers left and right speakers output into a subwoofers speaker in from speakers then back out to speakers, look at the back of a subwoofer and you will see like 4 sets of speaker hookups 2 in and 2 out, what this does is takes the low end or bass and drops the signal to the subwoofer then takes the mids and highs out to your left and right speakers, unless your regular left and right stereo speakers have large woofers a sub is the way to go.

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 805 sub hook up problem


Talked to tech support at Onkyo and there seems to be two (2) places you can hook your sub up to. I placed mine in the wrong slot. So please double check where you placed the sub connection.
