Question about Sony STR-DE997 7.1 Channels Receiver
I have a Sony STR-DE997, circa 2005, potentially a 7.1 system, although I only plan to set up as 5.1. The Sony has a single monaural RCA plug output for a subwoofer. Just got as a gift a new Klipsch Synergy 12 subwoofer (never had subwoofer before). However, the Klipsch has multiple inputs, both "low level" and "high level" (and "outputs"???), and there are two of each input, both Left and Right.
Do I use "low" or the "high" inputs on the Klipsch, and do I run the monaural outlet into just one input, either left or right, or split it into both left and right? Thanks for the help

Your receiver does not have a power amp to drive the speaker in the subwoofer while your other amp did. With this receiver you need to use a powered (active) subwoofer which has it's own power amp in it. You can either change out your subwoofer to a powered (active) subwoofer, or keep using your passive (unpowered) one and add a power amp between it and the receiver. The easiest way to tell a powered subwoofer is to see if has a place to plug it into the wall. If it does, it will most likely work in this situation.

Somewhere in your speaker wiring, you have a shorted wire. This short can be as simple as a single strand of wire touching the other terminal on one of the speakers.
With a bright flashlight, look carefully at the back of the receiver and then the speakers for any loose strands.

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. ^_^
