Tried another Kenwood powered subwoofer that I know works and had the same problem. I have a KS-908EX. The subwoofer is SW-38HT. I have tried the setup and it keeps reverting back to LFE level. How do I get the subwoofer to work? This is in step 3 of the setup for the speaker settings

I suppose you could, but you are talking about a driver (speaker) that was not designed for that cabinet size and amplifier used in the Kenwood, There are differences in speaker design besides power rating and impedance.
Check the bronze-colored coil underneath the foam cover. Note whether it looks worn, burned, warped or distorted. This may be the cause of your sub sounding fuzzy or muffled, which means it needs replacement. Look at the fuse inside the speaker and test it if you know how. This is a likely problem that causes your sub to power up improperly, play sounds at about half the volume or intermittently fade in and out. If the fuse is discolored or shows a short, you'll need to replace it
usually subs have outputs 4 ur monitors however if ur sub is active @ ur monitors are passive then you need 2 connect sub 2 ur tape loop with rca connections,usually you use the send signal from ur reciever which would norm connect to ur tape input , if the sub is passive then u connect direct to speaker output on amp then monitors to the sat connections on sub
if you don't mind a large car battery (and battery charger) in your living room, it will work. Another option is to get a 12 VDC power supply, capable of sourcing 100 or more amps, but that would be too costly.
