Question about Denon AVR-1603 Receiver

Subwoofer heard when only B speakers selected

I have my B speakers hooked up in my basement to listen to music (L/R stereo only) but when I have only the B speakers selected and put the stereo mode on, sound still comes out of the subwoofer (which is upstairs). Can anyone tell me how I can have ONLY my L/R B speakers active without having to unplug my subwoofer?

    That\'s what I do, I turn off the A speakers and turn on the B speakers. Only the red LED next to the B speakers is on, but the subwoofer is still on.

This is really weird. Normally, the subwoofer must be turned off when you turn on B speakers. But, hold on.. I have recently tried to do the same thing as you do, and the result is the same as yours. The problem is that you have to turn off A speakers completely when you activate Bs. If you have an A/B Speakers switch, first push the A to turn them off, after that press "B" to listen to music downstairs. I hope it works.

How do you hook up a subwoofer or a speaker box to factory stereo


Some radios on newer radios have RCA plugs tucked up in the wire harness to easily connect a sub amp. The sub amp you select will have the necessary instructions for hookup

My cd player lights up but doesn't play any music


Hello,
Do you have your speakers hooked up? If you are listening to the radio do you have an antenna hooked up? If your stereo has power then check the wiring to your speakers.

Rear speakers are dead, never got them to work. Changed front to back and rears work so speakers and wireing are good. Is it possible that because I did not hook up a center speaker this is the problem?


if its a 5.1 channels it means 2 front speakers,2 rear speakers or either the center speaker or the subwoofer.try to hook up either center speaker or subwoofer.

Connect powered subwoofer


  • If your receiver has a dedicated subwoofer line level output, we recommend connecting your subwoofer to this jack. Most receivers will have just one (mono) subwoofer output, while quite a few subs require two inputs. You can use an RCA "Y" adapter cord , which is a cable with one female RCA jack at one end, and two male RCA plugs at the other. Some receivers require menu settings (such as "sub-on" or "front speakers-small") that must be made before the sub output will be active.

    No Subwoofer sound with pro logic on TXSR503


    When you are playing cd,s set your amp to stereo and the sub should work,prologic should never be used for playing music as this destorys the sound stage,if you are useing small speakers make sure you have set the size in the setup menu and the cross over to about 80hertz.

    Hope this helps.

    New (old) house with stuff installed when we got it


    IF YOU HAVE THE SAME AMOUNT OF CABLES AS SPEAKERS HOOK THESE UP TO YOUR AMP THEN SUB TO SUB OUT PUT ON YOUR AMP WITH A SUB CABLE OR PHONO THAT REACHES FROM AMP TO SUB.SET AMP TO ALL CHANNEL STEREO OR MODE THAT SENDS STEREO TO ALL SPEAKERS,ALSO SET SPEAKER SIZE IN SETUP OF AMP TO SMALL AND SUB OUT PUT TO SUB ONLY.YOU SHOULD GET MUSIC AROUND THE HOUSE.IF SOUND IN SAY BEDROOM IS NOT AS LOUD AS BATHROOM USE THE TEST TONE TO LEVEL OUT EACH SPEAKER.

    HOPE THIS HELPS.

    Hi Linda,

    It is showing two because the source of the sound that you are listening is probably stereo only thus only two sound comes out. You could try to change the mode to 5 channel stereo or prologic or dts-6channel mode in the surround mode to hear your sound in all 5 speakers. best thing to do is watch a dvd which would use all 5.

    Regarding a/b yes if your receiver supports it which i think it does there should be place for it in the back of the receiver.

    good luck
