I have a Sony receiver STR DE 585 hooked to two speakers and a subwoofer. By the manual, page 25, to listen t 2 channel sources using front and left speakers and subwoofer, press A.DEC to select AUTO.DEC. When we do that, we hear occassional voices but most of the time we hear all the audio except the voices.
(using coaxial cable ). Any suggestions?

See EQ Mode on page 59 of the owners manual to set the bass and treble for the front speakers, presumably for 2 channel mode. For multi-channel mode there are several pre-programmed audio modes listed starting on page 43 and music mode starting on page 44. https://docs.sony.com/release/STRDH520.pdf
The Jensen JS650 does not accept line level input so you need to use the Front B speaker output from your Sony receiver and not the RCA subwoofer output. Even though your subwoofer is active, it does not support line level (RCA) signals.
Just connect the subwoofer as you would a pair of speakers. Once connected, you make sure the front panel speaker switch on the Sony is set to A+B so you get sound from your existing speakers (A) and subwoofer (B).
Probably not if it takes RCA input, but the receiver needs to be informed of the sub's presence and hw you want to share low frequencies among the rest of the speakers and itself. Then you need to set the relative levels using test tones, which also proves the sub works.
if its a 5.1 channel home theater,it means you have to hook up the subwoofer or maybe a center speaker to its terminal to have them all working. 2 front speaker,2 rear speaker and 1 center speaker or subwoofer =5 and amplifier is 1 so it is a 5.1 channel.hope this help..
You can pull the Left and Right stereo program from either MD/Tape or Video 2 Audio OUTputs. Run a pair of RCA cables to the Active EQ's Line IN; then the EQ's Line OUT to the Cavalier's Line IN.
If the Tape output you're borrowing the program from is already connected to something, use RCA-cable splitters.
Remember to NEVER activate the monitor for that Tape function during playback of any digital audio source - it disables the digital input; or if the 901's are being used - it will remove the signal to the Cavalier.
Now if you wanted to use the 901's in your movie listening this will work with two limitations
Your receiver doesn't have preamp outputs for Front Left and Right out so you'd be extracting only the mixed-down 2-channel version of whatever the Sony is processing.
You'll have to manually control the Cavalier's volume because the pre-out you're using is BEFORE the Sony's volume control.
It might still be an improvement over what you have now.
Maybe the surround processor is having a bad day... My kenwood would do similar and a reset was necessary to correct. Have you tried resetting the system? On my Sony STR DE 597 this is accomplished by powering off. Then while holding the 2 channel button down (front face plate) power on. A reset message is displayed. Your model may be similar but check your manual or download the PDF of the manual from Sony's support website. Hope this helps
The powered subwoofer should be connected to the black subwoofer output near the bottom of the receiver in just about the center. A subwoofer uses line level signals and has its own amplifier, Good chance that you wiped out a channel. Put the wiring back the way it was, and IF the channel was not directly connected to the speaker terminals, MAYBE, JUST MAYBE it will still work.
Chances are slim...
