Question about Speakers & Subwoofers
I have a Harmon Kardon avr 635 and a htks 14 surround sound system.It has a 200 watt 12 inch sub that has never had problems.It has three inputs; a right,left and a line level in.I have always had it connected from the receiver to the line level in and it has been fine.That input is not producing any sound.I connected my ipod to the right and left jack and that worked.I switched the cable out and that wasn't the problem.I am even willing to get a multimeter and take it apart if I need to.i just am not sure if it is the receiver or the jack on the sub.HK put me in contact with a repair company that is 90 miles away,not open evenings or weekends, and said it will be a minimum of $150.Any help would be greatly appreciated.Thanks for your help!
SOURCE: sub thumps repeatedly
since it still thumps i suspect the speaker is ok, but i suspect you have an electronic problem in the amp. since it is a powered sup & has the ability to auto turn on it has electronic circuits inside, take it to a service center for an estimate

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.

There is a CAT5/RJ45 A-Bus interface on the back of the HK AVR 435. That needs to connect to your A-BUS "hub". HK has two hub products: ABH-4000 and ABH-4 (older). Then CAT5 cable can be run from this hub to Wall-installed room-specific controls. HK has the AB-2 product, but any ABus compatible wall control will work. From the wall control, you wire regular audio cable to the speakers. So, some of the questions/issues to solve are: where do the existing wires go that are connected to the in-wall speakers? Typically that location is where to place your in-wall volume and source controls. Then the CAT5 gets wired from those controls back to the hub. And all that's required is a single CAT5 from the AVR to the Hub.

You need to use the LINE LEVEL connection on the pv800 (usually a rca type connector cable) and run this cable into the back of the HK 520 Subwoofer PRE-OUT connector, be sure the HK Receiver menu speaker set-up option is set to SUBWOOFER "YES"

I have this exact setup. 901s are my Mains.
The AVR247 has PreOuts on all of the channels.. No jumper to remove either. Just get a power amp or two and place the 901 EQ between the AVR247 and the Power Amplifier.

You mean "buy-wiring"?
Before you go investing in boutique speaker cable (times two) read up on biwiring.
It's a bogus electrical theory to get you to buy more speaker wire.
I don't see that capacity on this receiver.

I have a setup similar to what I think you're trying to do and it works great!
You're in luck because you have a full complement of pre-outs. You'll need a separate amp for the 901's.
First some background.
The use of 901's Active EQ (or any external proxcessor) in any digital AV receiver setup for anything EXCEPT STEREO listening through the 901's alone requires you to have a separate amplifier for them and to avoid having to use a Tape Monitor which could introduce proprietary and potentially damaging Active Equalization back into anything in the AV Receiver with its conventional speakers.
In an AVR, if you activate any Tape Monitor circuit at all, you will kill any digital sources. That is a function of AV receivers in general, nothing to do with 901's. Your Pre-Outs get us around that possibility and limitation but it also means you need a moderately powerful amp for your 901's. I use a Carver MT-200.
Run it with the Active EQ between the receiver Front L and R Pre-Outputs ** and the 901's amp channels. ** Front Pre Out (or one of your analog Tape Outs) >>> Bose EQ Amplifer IN, then Bose EQ Amplier OUT >>> new amplifier IN.
Run it with the Active EQ between the receiver Front L and R Pre-Outputs ** and the 901's amp channels.
** Front Pre Out (or one of your analog Tape Outs) >>> Bose EQ Amplifer IN, then Bose EQ Amplier OUT >>> new amplifier IN.
Then set the new amp's volume control (if it has one, mine doesn't) to something HIGH and leave it alone. Run through your speaker setup routines on the AVR. After levels and distances are set the AVR will be the boss of the 901's. With 901's don't even need subwoofers but they don't hurt. If you do have subs I recommend sharing the LFE with the 901's.
I've done this in my own setup once. Turn the 901's around so the rear faces point into the listening area. Crank up a movie like Master and Commander and when the waves are crashing or cannon are firing you WILL FEEL A BREEZE from them. Now THAT is multi-media!I advise having the 901's share LFE with any subwoofers you might have.
