SOURCE: can't get my Accurian subwoofer to work

OK if you came out of the receiver sub pre-out RCA jack into the subwoofer RCA jack ( most subs call this low level line in) and no sub sound you may need to program the receiver to tell it that a subwoofer is being used, many receivers have this function, and some default it to NO SUB and them your low end soung goes to the front right and left speaker, so check the receiver manual and look under adding a subwoofer instructions if available.

SOURCE: my celestion s20 subwoofer won't play if i hook it

Tell your source (receiver???) that it has a sub and set it up to feed LFE out of that RCA jack.

Prove your sub pre-out works. Or send something like FM on Tape Out to the sub and see how that works out.

How did you hook a speaker wire to this model of powered sub? What was on the other end of that speaker wire? It's not designed for speaker level input.

Onkyo skw 591 subwoofer...blue light is on and no sound? any thoughts?


Hello, To test the subwoofer when the blue light is on if you apply your thumb to the end of the subwoofer cable (the end that you would plug into the receiver) there should be feedback from the sub. If there is no feedback then the sub is not working correctly. Thanks, FJD

How do I wire the speakers to tuner and then to subwoofer?


depending on the subwoofer you have there are several ways to do this.

If you have an amplified subwoofer and a receiver with a sub out then just run a RCA cable from the sub out to the input on the sub. depending on the sub you may need a Y adapter to provide a signal to both the left and the right input.

if your sub has high level (speaker terminals) for inputs AND outputs you can use speaker wire from the receivers front speaker terminals to the sub and then from the sub to the speakers. You would use this same process if your sub does not have a built in amplifier.

Take note that if you do use the receivers subwoofer output its often necessary to turn that output on using the receivers on screen menu.

Hope that helps

My jamo sub 200 & pioneer vsx517 receiver is not working properly


What do you mean that it sometimes doesn't work? It doesn't power on automatically?
Check settings of your receiver - if it has subwoofer output enables and if low frequencies from all channels are directed also to the SUB. By default only the LFE channel (.1) of 5.1 signal input is fed to the subwoofer. So Sub will work in this case only when you listen to 5.1 signal (DVD movie for example), but for radio or stereo music, only front speakers are used. By configuring this bass redirect, you can use subwoofer for all signal types.

Can't get my Accurian subwoofer to work


Sounds like you have everything hooked up properly. Make sure the outlet is providing AC power to the sub. Check the power switch on the sub.

If it is not working still; bring it back and swap it for another one before you warranty runs out.

Subwoofer to receiver hookup


In general, there are two ways to hook up your sub-woofer. First using the high level outputs from your receiver ( speaker output from the front R & L speaker terminals ) run a set of wires from the outputs to the speaker inputs on the sub-woofer, you do this in concert with the speaker wires going to the front R & L speakers which you then attach to the R & L speaker outputs on the sub woofer amp. Note that the sub woofer doesn't power your front speakers, the connections from the sub amp are just a pass through connection where the signal needed by the sub is parasitically taken from the inputs.
Second is via a low level output from your receiver / amp to the low level input on your sub amp. This is normally done via a RCA type of patch cable and connected to the sub woofer RCA jack on the rear of the source receiver or amp, Next run the patch cord to the sub amp an into the RCA jack input. IF you have a right and left input, use the Right input.

Subwoofer goes to sleep


The receiver automatic speaker set-up set the sub volume at -12 and since it was not getting any signals from the receiver it was doing what it is supposed to be doing (going to the standby mode). This was troubleshooted by Onkyo tech support on a Sunday. All the best about Onkyo customer support.

Subwoofer connection


if this is ao powered sub, that plugs into the wall, there should be no problems, if it is powered solely by the reciever it may work fine but be sure you dont exceed amperage on the subwoofer.

Subwoofer VERY weak


According to the KLH manual for the 9906 "6 pack" with the BassBite sub... it says "if your sub is connected via the speaker - level terminals, your reciever must be set for "NO" subwoofer - even though you are using one. VErify proper polarity on your speaker connection wires. (red or gold to +, black or silver to -). Depending on how you have your woofer connected to the reciever, if connected to a reciever without a subwoofer out then set your reciever for LARGE speakers and turn the subwoofer setting "OFF". Failure to do so will result in little to no bass. If you do have a subwoofer out from your reciever adjust your speaker size setting to small or large speakers as appropriate. Set the recievers sub output to ON. Connecting small speakers to a reciever set for LArge speakers can result in damage to small speakers.

Hope this helps.
