I received a Yamaha 590BL system for Christmas. I have everything hooked up and working except for an extra sub. I have monster digital coaxial cable but I don't know where to connect it to on the av receiver?? There is an orange coaxial connection but it says DVD below it. I still tryed that though and no sound from sub.

In most surround sound systems the sub woofer is powered separately and uses a standard RCA coax connection to the receiver/amplifier.
Replacing is simply plugging in the new and reconnecting the coax cable.
Usually the audio signal is Dolby Digital 5.1 the (.1) is the LFE Sub-woofer. The connection is between the Subwoofer RCA connector on the amplifier and connects to the (LFE-Line) in on the subwoofer speaker.
Follow these steps to connect a powered sub woofer to your receiver:
You typically have two options when connecting a powered sub woofer.
Input (1) on the rear of the sub woofer would be used when connecting
the sub woofer to the receiver using speaker wires. You would then
connect the main speakers to the opposite end, or output or the sub
woofer to the main speakers. Option (2) would be using RCA line level
output jacks, input (2) on the rear panel of the sub woofer directly to
the single sub woofer output on the back of an AV receiver.
1. Video-out to TV: You should be able to connect the receiver to the TV with any / all of the available video modes.
However, if you don't have the HDMI connection, then the Video-In on the TV would have to be switched back-n-forth between Composite / S-Video, depending on how each device is connected to the receiver. [If the TV has 'auto-sensing' Video-In then it should automatically detect the incoming signal from the receiver whether S-Video or Composite or Component.]
2. Audio-Input to receiver: As the receiver provides only two Coax-Inputs, you would have to first assign Coax-1 to DVD and Coax-2 to Cable. Then connect the coax cables accordingly; that should do the trick and allow you to hear the cable sound over coax.
If you still have a problem then check the 'Input mode' setting; leaving it on Coax-1/2 (Auto) would be the better option. This is on pg. 50 of my manual "Specifying the Digital Signal Format".
if you do not have the digital hook up from the tv to the reciever
then you will not get the subwoofer sounds or the dolby digital sounds
if you don't have this on your tv then just turn off the dolby digital when watching the tv , and you should be able to hear the subwoofer thru the virtual surround sound
hope this info is worth a fixya and if you need other help then just ask me and
i'll be glad to help
Does your TV support "Line In" or "Aux" or "External"? if so plug your "Low end" DVD directly into the back of the tv and verify that you Can get audio. Quite a few DVD players do have a mute feature. Be sure this is turned "off"...accordianman
Typically, only stereo inputs exist on any comsumer-grade receiver, and the actual decoding to 3, 4, 5, 6, and even 7.1 is done internal in the receiver. When a "placement" signal is detected by the receiver, the sound is routed to the correct speaker.Please refer to a user manual
Well, as I know, your Cerwin Vega subwoofer is designed for use with stereo systems. Therefore, it has only 2 channels for input, and 2 channels for output as well. However, you can try this out; the first thing I suggest is that you hook up your main front channels through the subwoofer. All you have to do is to connect the subwoofer input to the front channel output on the amp, then hook up your front speakers to the satellite output on the subwoofer. As long as you make sure that system is working on 8 ohms, I believe this can activate the subwoofer.
