RX-V2090 Bass Output Problem

I have the 2090 with a 3-channel Bose Acoustimass speaker setup. My problem is that I have no bass output when the balance is in the center. When I move the balance dial left or right, the sub and speakers start to put out bass as they used to. Absolutely no bass when the balance is centered. What does this mean?

Re: RX-V2090 Bass Output Problem

A couple things to check on the no bass problem:
1) Make sure your center speaker is set for normal, not large.
2) Make sure your speakers wires are in phase (+ conn. to + and - conn. to -).

My Yamaha RX-A830 won't play the sub. I've reset the speakers with the mic multiple times but it's still not working. I confirmed that the sub works on another receiver.

There is a difference between SUB and LFE. In 5.1 mode, the LFE is the ".1" channel. It will output bass only when audio information signal is addressed to this channel. In stereo mode, depending of the receiver setting, it can output normal bass when front speakers cannot handle low frequency. In setup menu, you'll probably have to set your Front speakers as "Small" to make the sub channel taking the relay in low frequencies. There also can be many other reasons for your problem but this might be the solution. Good luck!

Because my rear speakers are popping and crackling during DTS output, I believe my settings of bass or treble might be overloading my speakers... should I set the rear speakers to "flat"? should...

Cracks and pops are dangerous. Can you tell if they might be circuit overloads or maybe digital decoding errors?

Are you routing bass to small speakers. THAT would definitely have audible problems. Define all of your speakers Large vs Small based on their bass-handling capacity.

ONLY DTS? Probably NOT the speakers or amps. How many sources are involved? Could be with the source or cabling.

Does it happen at low volumes, too? Then it would probably be digital in origin.

Do the indicators various digital surround mode indicators flicker or turn off when the pops appear?

As for the rest of your questions, I'd set everything at flat and start all over. If you're maxxing out any settings, something is wrong.

I have set up a BOSE Accustimass System with my STR de485 receiver. How do I adjust the treble/bass?

if u are using bose speaker system then remember one thing. go to speaker setup and select all the speakers as large not small. then only u will get a good tone. bose speakers will handle the output power of ur amplifier.
u can only adjust the bass and treble of ur frond Channel speakers. for that
select multi channel surround sound and the increase and decrease the bass and treble

I get no bass sound from sub-Woofer connected to Yamaha RX-V465

Check your speaker settings in Setup menu / Speaker Setup / Manual / Config (and then in this submenu also Equalizer).
In Config, choose where should low frequency sound go - subwoofer and/or front speakers (if they are big enough). The settings are: Bass Out: SWFR/Front/Both.
Also check Subwoofer phrase in SWFR Phase.
Check settings of all speakers, they can be Large / Small / None. If small, frequencies lower than "Crossover" settings, will not be put on them.

Is there any DTS decorder player that suit with Yamaha RX-V 2090? Thank you.

Try the Technics SH-AC500D Digital Surround Processor. Its outputs should match the inputs on the RX-V2090. I own both units, though I am using a DDP-1 with the Yamaha receiver. I use two separate amps with the Technics to achieve surround sound using my good vintage stereo system (two of them actually - one for front and ane for rear). The Technics is a nice piece of kit.

More power

.70 WATTS MINIMUM of continuous RMS power to each of the five channels into 8W from 20 Hz to 20 kHz . If this unit wont drive your sub then somethings wrong with it or the subs as I got these specs from the owners manual. Now your aware you will not really hear per say all the bass from your sub but will feel like yuou do. I have had peeps that wanna hear the thump down to your bones but thats the problem you wont unless your drive the subs way way up.Your true norm bass is from your front and rear left and right for the normal hearing range. I hope you understand what im trying to say here. And no there is no modification per say to increase the output and this amp IS NOT made to be bridged. Good luck
