    Same problem here - just two front speakers and a sub-woofer. Neither FM-radio nor HDMI give an output at the sub jack. Configured the settings to sub=yes. Read something about LFE-information in the manual p58 - but I have never heard of this. What is it? Please help asap. Karl

From somneone on the AVS-forum I got the tip to set the front speakers to small. After checking this (it was set) I looked after the sub (a Fostex PMsub) again and turned the volume really high - and now it works! Of course I have tested the sub on another output (other amp and zone2-out on the Onkyo) and it worked with a relatively low setting. So it seems, that the sub-out is just very low level, but working OK.

How do i turn on my subwoofer i plug it in and im not getting any sound


I'm assuming you have it connected to the amp right? Some amps have the ability to switch off the sub. Check that your amp has it switched on.

If this woofer is a dual voice coil woofer and if you are running your amp bridged or in mono would suggest try wiring your woofer in series.But before Idid anything I would unhook the woofer from the amp and pop it with a battery to make sure your woofer is still connected.

It comes on but no base sound and wont turn up


You have to fill in the details about what you're feeding it (the source and how IT's set up). It won't just >>create<< bass.

From the manual:

If you used the high-level (speaker) inputs and there
is no sound from any of the speakers:
• Check that receiver/amplifier is on and a source is playing.
• Check that powered subwoofer is plugged into an active electrical outlet and is switched on.
• Check all wires and connections between
receiver/amplifier and speakers. Make sure all wires
are connected. Make sure none of the speaker wires are
frayed, cut or punctured.
• Review proper operation of your receiver/amplifier.

If there is low (or no) bass output:
• Make sure the connections to the left and right “Speaker
Inputs” have the correct polarity (+ and –).
• Make sure that the subwoofer is plugged into an active electrical outlet and switched on.
• Adjust the crossover point.
• Flip the Phase Control switch to the opposite position.
• If you are using a Dolby Digital/DTS receiver or processor, make sure that the subwoofer adjustments on the receiver/processor are set up correctly.
• Slowly turn the Level Control clockwise until you begin to hear the desired amount of bass.

If you used the line-level inputs and there is no sound
from the subwoofer:
• Check that receiver/amplifier is on and a source is playing.
• Check that powered subwoofer is plugged into an active electrical outlet and is switched on.
• Check all wires and connections between receiver/amplifier and subwoofer. Make sure all wires are connected. Make sure none
of the wires are frayed, cut or punctured.
• Review proper operation of your receiver/amplifier.
• Slowly turn the Level Control clockwise until you begin to hear the desired amount of bass.
• Make sure that you have configured your receiver/processor so that the subwoofer/LFE output is on.

Im trying to wire up one 1252w 12'' subwoofer, but which ever way i wire the channels up for the ohms all i get is small static sound and no bump?


Put Positive wire on Right Channel Positive,
Put Negative wire on Left Channel Negative.
Make sure cross-over is not turned on and turn up all settings to 3/4 and adjust the rest from the cd deck

I need installation manual


its not a subwoofer it is a midrange speaker. all you do is connect your outputs from the radio to the crossover then connect both the tweeter and midrange to the outputs on the crossover. it is called a component set.

The 'Subwoofer' output on your receiver is used to connect to a powered subwoofer with a built in amplifier. Your KLH speakers use what is called a 'passive' subwoofer, it gets its power from the receiver and then passes the higher frequencies to the left and right front speakers after taking out the low frequencies for the subwoofer. A speaker system with a passive subwoofer is good for casual listening, but a powered subwoofer is required for really hearing low frequencies and rumble in movies. The KLH speakers you have were highly rated in their time for their price. The four satellite speakers and center channel speaker have very good sound compared to the little 'midget' surround sound speakers most people buy today.

Here's how you hook them up:

- The left and right front channels from your receiver terminals should go to the terminals on the subwoofer marked 'From Amplifier'
- Your left and right front speakers are then connected to the subwoofer terminals marked 'To Speakers', they do not connect directly to your receiver.
- Your center speaker is connected to your receiver terminals marked 'Center'
- Your rear speakers are connected to your receiver terminals marked 'Surround'

That should get you up and running. If the bass isn't good enough with the passive subwoofer, you can get a decent powered subwoofer like the Velodyne VX-10 for about $150 and 'kick it up a notch'. Good luck and enjoy....
