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.

No signal going to my subwoofer. All other channels work fine. How can I verify if problem is with Pioneer VSX-D912 reciever or my subwoofer?


First, did it EVER work?

No? Review the speaker setup in the receiver and make sure it knows you have a sub and is sending LFE to it.

Yes? Feed it a signal directly from a CD player or something. Start with a quiet sound passage as you probably will have no control of the volume.

If you need help beyond this, name the sub and how it's connected.

There is no sound coming out of the subwoofer


I assume it's an active subwoofer, since it hums. Did you activate sub in the receiver menu? Did you turn up the volume on the sub?

Receiver cannot recognize subwoofer


As I implied earlier, take a clue from the physical style of connectors for both parts of the subwoofer function in the old and new receivers:

RCA connections are for Line Level signal between components only.

The input (bare wire) at the speaker is for AMPLIFIED signal.

You can't just modify one to fit the other and expect magic to happen. Be glad you didn't do it the other way around and modify an amplified (speaker level) outout into a Line Level input. You likely would have smoked that component.

Your subwoofer is a passive speaker, that is, like any other speaker it needs an amplifier. Many subs are self-powered (amp built-in) and they would mate well with the RCA sub output of the receiver.

Get yourself an Active (self-amplified) Subwoofer and run UN-MODIFIED RCA cables to it, according to its instructions, from the Sub Out of the receiver. Or get an amplifier between your receiver and the sub you have.

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-no output


ther should be a diagram in the left hand corner of display of speakers hooked up, make sure sub is shown right under the left right (and possibly) center speaker icons. under adjust, there is a subwoofer volume level. Under settings there is sub (yes, and no for on and off) there is a sub crossover frequency, and i believe there is also a "LFE" att, which is another subwoofer level.

Subwoofer Output Not Working...


The first thing to try is disconnecting ONE of the two subs. See if you get more bass with a single sub than with both. If you do, re-connect the second subwoofer, but reverse the (+) and (-) wires.
