I can not get my Sub Woofer to come on. The subwoofer is a Cambridge Soundworks "Newton Series P500" with a control power module. It was just moved from Florida to California but was well packed. Everything appears ok but no Sub.
Any guesses, guesstimations, things I should check.
Try setting your amp to "auto format decode".
It should easily be heard in this mode.
The sub will not show up on the display when in 5.1 mode. (Blue light on)
Use this with music, and use the 5.1 with movies to get a better experience from your amp.
The sub will work in 5.1 but doesn't show up in the display. Try movies with loud sounds.
Most of the pre-set sound fields are of no use to me. I only use normal surround, and AFD and love it. I hope this works for you!

Before you cut any wires, make sure the sub woofer can handle the power from the Sony. Is the sub powered? What are speaker specs on the Sony . Is the output jack on the Sony meant for an unamplified sub? You have to know the answers to all this so you won't blow up the Sony and/or the sub woofer
It depends. You can connect an active (self-powered) sub-woofer to the STR-DE705. You can't connect a passive sub-woofer that needs power from the receiver. If the sub-woofer has its own power cord, then it's an active unit. See https://us.en.kb.sony.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/37001 for more information. You'll also need a RCA subwoofer cable. This is like a RCA audio cable but only has one plug on each end. (Using a regular audio cable may risk a short when the extra plugs hit something.) Many subwoofers will come with the audio cable. If you do need one, they are available at most places that sell cables, including Amazon.com .
It is based on your sub-woofer type..whether powered or passive sub woofer..
Assume that you have powered one..RCA sub woofer jack is the best to feed it ..you should use RCA sub woofer output on your receiver as well..good luck
There should be an adjustment in setup that for 2 channel sources, you may have to enable the subwoofer output. Or alternatively, if the subwoofer output for 2 channel sources is in fact enabled, then increase the crossover frequency for the sub.
Get a powered sub-woofer that has speaker level inputs, then run your front speaker wires into the sub-woofers speaker level input and then run a set of speaker wires from the sub-woofers speaker wire output to your front speakers. This is a common way to use a sub-woofer with a receiver that doesn't have a sub-woofer output.
Most powered sub-woofers have these connections, just check it out first before you buy one. They look like speaker jacks on the back of the receiver.
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.
