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. ^_^

SOURCE: No Signal on sub preout on my Onkyo TX-SR703 AVR

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.

Powered subwoofer amp repair? On and off works fine.. very weak signal to sub. All wires checked and working fine.


For starters, it is a home theater in a box. With that being said, highly consider upgrading before spending more money on the system. If thats not even an option, have you tried adjusting the level of signal being sent from the receiver out to the sub? It sounds stupid, but this is often over looked and can sometimes be tricky depending upon the type of receiver you are using, to adjust the level being sent to the sub... Typically when a subwoofer has little to no sound, this is the issue. Also, is the sub powered (does it have its own amplification using a power cord that plugs into an electrical outlet? If so, does it have a volume knob on the back, and does it respond when turning the knob? If its not powered, than your problem is what I described above, unless you've already done that. If that is the case, your speaker is fried... Hope this helps

Problems with JBL PSW D110


The speaker level input option is designed for receivers that don't have digital output for the sub, used this way when you set to digital the speaker outputs only get the higher range outputs so won't reproduce much bass. To get the sub to work in digital mode you need to use the digital output (single RCA) from the amp to the sub

It's possible that you have accidentally switched off the sub-woofer outputs on the receivers. Onkyo have a speaker set up test. You should run that and see if the speakers are on and that a signal is getting through to them.

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.

Register and download the manual for free at retrevo.com

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

Alright i had a chance to look over things, this is how you are going to hook up the sub. first we'll be connecting the surround sound unit to the sub woofer.
surround sound unit sub woofer
left front: positive (+) <-----to------------->(+) left speaker level in
negative ( - )<- - -to- - - - - - ->( - ) left speaker level in

right front: positive (+) <-----to------------->(+) right speaker level in
negative ( - )<- - -to- - - - - - >( - ) right speaker level in

now that the surround sound unit is connected to the sub woofer you will need to connect the front surround sound speakers to the sub woofer.
sub woofer front surround sound speaker
left speaker level out (+)<-----to--------> (+) left front speaker
left speaker level out( - ) <- - - to- - - - ->( - ) left front speaker

right speaker level out (+)<-----to--------> (+) right front speaker
right speaker level out( - ) <- - - to- - - ->( - ) right front speaker

Alright now that the wires are all over the place and plugged in
turn everything on and see how it sounds. let me know if everything is working as it should. if you need help with anything else or if something does not seem right please feel free to contact me via e-mail or phone

Sub woofer output port does not seem to work on my kenwood VR 407, checked sub woofer on another system - works fine, any easy solutions?


Is the 407 set up to drive the unknown sub. It's not just plug n play.

The manual will guide you, around page 15. Also refer to your subwoofer manual. Try retrevo.com for that one.

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.
