On screen setup needs a separate RCA video cable besides the HDMI connection. There are 3 ways to do the subwoofer. One is the rt left B speakers, which mean both A and B speakers need to be on. The other two ways is using one of the single plugs for the subswoofer on the back. The one in the middle did not work for me but the other did. Be sure to setup correctly when you can on the screen, and make sure the configuration includes a Subwoofer as one of your speakers.

    If you are not getting sound from your subwoofer, try running your MACC set-up automatically. My subwoofer was not getting any signal from the subwoofer output on my Pioneer VSX 818V because the processor was not sending a signal. During the automated MACC set-up, it tested and calibrated the channel and I have had great base since. It helps to have your tuner hooked up to a television to see the set-up process take place. Good Luck!

No sound playing from either speaker on the Edifier Multimedia Speaker M3300 setup.


Go to http://www.edifier.ca/french/speakers/m3300/m3300-EN-FR-manual.pdf and check the troubleshooting guide. I notice it says to check to make sure the mute button on the remote is off. Try it without the remote plugged in, also. Try hooking up another device with a headphone jack like an mp3 player. The only other thingI can think of would be a blown fuse, which sometimes lets a small signal through with some amps, but I don't see any fuse holder.

Can we use the subwoofer as an amplifier for speakers? it has jacks for speaker in/out, but i can't figure out how to make it work because the speakers have no sound.


I don't believe this hookup is amplified; but, if you have used the regular unfiltered speaker connections from your receiver/amplifier to hookup the subwoofer, the system will pass the signal thru the outputs subject to the crossover adjustment on the back panel. You cannot get the full signal if your system is sending only the bass signal to the subwoofer. I have copied the instructions below from the manual. You would set the high freq crossover to the low end of your satellite's frequency range. The full manual is here: http://www.jbl.com/EN-US/Products/Pages/ProductSupportDetails.aspx?PID=PSW-D110

High-Pass Control
• If you hooked up your subwoofer
as shown in Hookup
3 on page 4, you also have
the capability of adjusting
the high-pass frequency.
The High-Pass control
determines the frequency at
which the main speakers
will start reproducing
sounds. If your main speakers
can comfortably reproduce
some low-frequency
sounds, also set this control
to a lower frequency
setting, between 50Hz –
100Hz. This will concentrate
the subwoofer’s
efforts to the ultradeep
bass sounds, while your
main speakers continue to
reproduce the mid-bass
information. If you are
using smaller bookshelf
speakers that do not extend
to the lower bass frequencies,
set the high-pass crossover
control to a higher setting,
between 125Hz – 180Hz.
With this setting, your main
speakers will not have the
burden of reproducing any
low-frequency sounds.
• If you hooked up your subwoofer
as shown in Hookup
1 on page 3, the high-pass
frequency is fixed at 180Hz.
• If you hooked up your subwoofer
as shown in Hookup
2 on page 4, there is no
high-pass control. Unless
your receiver/amplifier
incorporates a high-pass
crossover, your main speakers
will continue to get a
full-range signal.
Final adjustment and blending
of the low-pass and high-pass
controls may evolve over several
listening sessions. A good
starting point would be to set
both the low- and high-pass
controls to the same frequency
and adjust from that point.

Subwoofer turns on and is hooked up, but no sound.


The signal don't seems to be present to the sub input.

I cant seem to get the sub woofer to put out sound


Hello, are you using the subwoofer output on the receiver?
Did you turn the subwoofer on within the receivers onscreen setup?
this requires going into the menu selecting speaker setup and telling the receiver that you do have a subwoofer connected.

if you have done all this I would try to fist make sure the sub is working. easiest way is to plug a source directly into the rca inputs of the sub and see if it powers up. A CD player or even an ipod with the right connector will work.

if the sub powers on and produces sound then the issue is in the receiver and you will have to play with the setup. Its possible that the output jack is bad, I've had that happen when I pulled on an RCA cable and pulled out the socket but that's rare.


Is the subwoofer set to turn on automaticly when a signal is sensed?
does it have a switch to select high or low level inputs (speaker jacks or RCA connections on the back)

hope that helps
remember start by making sure the sub works then figure out why the receiver isn't sending a signal.

SA-AX720 no subwoofer signal?


THIS UNIT HAS NO SUB WOOFER AMP IN IT. THE ONLY WAY TO OVER COME THIS IS TO HOOK THE LEFT AND RIGHT FRONT SPEAKERS STRAIGHT TO THE SUB WOOFER AND THEN GO FROM THE SUB WOOFER BACK TO THE INPUTS ON THE BACK OF THE UNIT FOR THE FRONT SPEAKERS. THE SUB WOOFER THIS WAY WILL EXTRACT THE BASS AND THE FRONT WILL RECEIVE THEIR PART. THIS SOUNDS CRAZY AS HELL I KNOW BUT THAT'S HOW I GOT MINE TO WORK. THE OUTPUT FOR THE SUBWOOFER IS USELESS AND PUT THERE FOR YOU TO HOOK UP AN AMP FOR A SUB WOOFER. EVERYTHING HAS SHORT COMINGS, AND THAT'S THE ONE FOR THE AX-720.

Audio Out Fixed/Variable


Is your subwoofer amplified or passive?

You clearly understand that you need to use a variable line out to control the subwoofer volume via the TV. As the setup seems reasonable, I'm wondering if the subwoofer is getting a signal, but that it is at line-level and not internally amplified by the subwoofer speaker. Generally, if the subwoofer must be plugged into an AC socket in the wall, it has an internal amplifier and can be fed line-level audio. If it is "passive", it has no amplifier, and it must receive an amplified signal (over speaker wire) from an amplifier (or integrated receiver). TV's don't generally have connections to send out an amplified signal.

If the subwoofer is indeed amplified, then this is obviously not the problem, but it's the first thing to verify given the information provided.
