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.

H?, You have a very good system...one of the best of SONY..SUB does not get activated automatically especially on STEREO mode.DIRECT STEREO Notes • No sound will be output from the subwoofer. .your system has Dedicated Power Amplifier for 2 Externally Driven Sub-Woofers (200W RMS x 2)..in order to activate the sub woofer amplifier you need to make a selection on the surround modes while you are switching the modes of the surround you will see the speaker position on the display of receiver as well..if you do not see the sub woofer it wont be activated..Sound Field Program (A.F.D) is a good example to test it.. Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up for Helping out the Community :) Hope this helps! -------------------- Additionally please follow the instruction on your user manual to activate the SUB ,as is follows.. ----------------- BASS-OUT
Low-frequency (bass) signals can be directed to the
subwoofer and/or the front left and right speakers
according to the characteristics of your system. This
setting also determines the routing of the LFE (low-
frequency effect) signals found in Dolby Digital or DTS
Choices: SWFR (subwoofer), FRONT, BOTH
• Select SWFR if you connect a subwoofer. LFE and
low-frequency signals from other channels are directed
to the subwoofer according to the speaker settings.
• Select FRONT if you do not use a subwoofer. LFE and
low-frequency signals from other channels are directed
to the front speakers according to the speaker settings
(even if you have previously set the front speakers to
• Select BOTH if you connect a subwoofer and you want
to output low-frequency signals from front channels to
both the front speakers and subwoofer. LFE and low-
frequency signals from other channels are also directed
to the subwoofer according to the speaker settings. Use
this function to reinforce low-frequency signals using
the subwoofer when playing back sources such as CDs.
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.
If you are referring to 5.1 surround you would have to have 5 speakers plus one powered subwoofer. The front left and right as well as your center channel to the majority of the sound reproduction with the rear channel being there for intricate sounds and background noise. The subwoofer will be a preamp output from your receiver. That signal will then get amplified by your subwoofers power amp. Generally subwoofers are tucked away in a corner while the other 5 speakers form a box around your viewing area.
'the best way' is highly subjective. if you are testing with a 'real' 5.1 or 7.1 source such as a dvd or bd there should be signal getting to the sub, depending on the source content (play a scene with explosions or something). if this is the case and you are not getting signal check all connections. is the sub powered or passive? if powered is it on? maybe try turning down or disconnecting other speakers so you can tell for sure if the sub is making any sound? if you are using 2 channel playback like a standard cd or an input from an mp3 type player then the sub may not be in use depending on the receiver setup - in order to get 2 channel info to more than 2 channels - 2.1 or 3.1 or 4 or 4.1 or 5.1 etc - the receiver has to do some processing such as "pro logic" to interpolate the 2 channel info to the extra speakers.. you may experiment with these 'enhanced' settings..
Try checking in the preamp/prepro setup menu that your subwoofer is enabled, then check the level in that setup. Then check the level on the subwoofer itself. If all is well then check that the subwoofer connection is in fact connected to the correct output on the pre/pro.
I am sure you would have also done the first time setup and set all the 7 speaker as well as the subwoofer thru your auto or manual speaker set up and that the reason you are getting Neo6.
On your Receiver, please also check the format of the digital input signal thru "Displaying Source Information" Press the [RECIEVER] button, and then press the [DISPLAY] buttorn repeatedly to cycle thru the available information.
a).. If the information shown say that DTS - ES Discrete, DTS- Matrix, DTS -HD and so on.... then we need to check as to why the receiver is not accepting the signal.
b).If the information shows otherwise and a 7.1 signal is not availalbe, then its possible that the source(in this case the BD player/or the recording is not sending the required signal).
lets take the case (a). In this case if you have all the 7.1 set up in place and you are getting the required signal , then you can assign a default listening mode to each input source that will be selected automatically when you select each input source.
Press [RECEIVER] button followed by [SETUP] button and enter listening mode setup, use up , down buttons to select the input source that you want to set and press [ENTER].
then use [up], [down] button to select the signal format that you want to set.
then use the [[LEFT] and [RIGHT] buttons to select a listening mode.
When you are finished, you can press [SETUP] again.
The above is with experience with ONKYO AV Receivers. In case you have a problem , please let me know so that I can go thru the SETUP menu of your particular receiver i.eTX-SR- 806.
HOpe the above sort out. DO let me know.
Please do rate this solution and thanks for using FixYa!
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.
