Question about Pioneer VSX-9110TXV-K

1 Answer

No Subwoofer playback

This receiver has whats called MCACC that automatically sets up your surround sound. Its a 7.1 system but right now i have two 12" tower speakers (Left and Right) a center speaker and a subwoofer. I run the auto setup and the receiver recognizes the subwoofer (yamaha 8"). it feeds a bunch of different frequencies to it and sets it at -7.0 DB. When the setup is done and i change it to surround sound, the sub doesn't playback at all. When i manually go in and change the db's it will put test notes through the subwoofer and i can tell how loud it will be. but when i save the settings and exit out of the EQ edit screen, it doesnt play at all. can anyone help? thank you!!

Check in your speaker setup menu. Sometimes you can select between using the surround back speaker jacks as "B" front speakers as well. You would have to tell the unit which one you want to use it as.

Our denon 1708 only play on stereo mode,no sound when it select on 7 channel.. crackling on dolby. what is the problem on that receiver? please help


The surround sound outputs outputs ic's in the remainder of the system have opened, or there is a short in the speaker wiring, check to make sure that is not the case, if okay! you will need a repairman to assess the situation.

Auto MCACC Screen Appearing


It would appear the unit thinks your McAAC microphone is inserted. Is it?

Automatically setting up for surround

sound (Auto MCACC)

The Auto MCACC Setup measures the acoustic characteristics of your listening area, taking into account

ambient noise, speaker size and distance, and tests for both channel delay and channel level. After you have set

up the microphone provided with your system, the receiver uses the information from a series of test tones

to optimize the speaker settings and equalization for your particular room.

Make sure you do this before moving on to Playing a source on page 11.

Important

• Make sure the microphone and speakers are not moved during the Auto MCACC Setup.

• Using the Auto MCACC Setup will overwrite any existing settings for the MCACC preset you select.

• Before using the Auto MCACC Setup, the headphones should be disconnected and the iPod

USB, XM or SIRIUS Radio function should not be selected as an input source.

1 Switch on the receiver and your TV.

2 Connect the microphone to the MCACC SETUP MIC

jack on the front panel.

Place the microphone so that it's about ear level at your normal listening position (use a tripod if possible). Make

sure there are no obstacles between the speakers and the microphone.

The Auto MCACC display appears once the microphone is connected.1

Note

1 • You can't use the System Setup menu in either the main or sub zone when the iPod USB, XM or SIRIUS Radio input source is selected. When you set ZONE 2 to ON (page 61), you can't use the System Setup menu.
• If you cancel the Auto MCACC Setup, or leave an error message

etc.

It's all in the manual.

Some background on the process...

How to switch on Sub?


surround and subwoofer may not work if there is an additional graphic equaliser operating.
1. check in your receiver speaker setting ensure your speaker setup doesn not have subwoofer set to NONE. this will block any signal to your subwoofer socket.
2 when you select your surround sound setting setup, ensure you select the speaker mode you want, if there is a multicontrol knob, cycle through the choices
select subwoofer mode and set it to yes.
if you have set-up small speakers S in your speaker settings then it could be that subwoofer is set to yes automatically if you have large speakers L, subwoofer has to be set additionally in the subwoofer setting.
3 test subwoofer on alternative device to test it is working ok
consult manual on enjoying surround sound and adjusting the speaker settings.

Hi We are setting up our new Onkyo TX SR606 receiver but are having trouble with the automatic speaker set-up. The 2 front speakers, centre and the back right speaker are ok, but there is an error...


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.
