Clestion S10 Sub not working

Hi,
I have had the S10 sub as part of a Clestion 5.1 speaker package for a few years now connected up to a Denon 2805 AV receiver.About a month ago the sub just stopped working, no sound coming out of it, although the auto/manual light was still on. I checked the connection between sub and receiver - all seemed OK. I did a "tone test" through the 2805's remote button, centre, front and rear speakers all emitted a tone signal, but the sub was still quiet. After speaking to the Kef/ Celestion people in Maidstone I ordered a new amp for the sub ay just over a £100 and have just fitted it . There is still no sound coming out of it. Please help!

Instead of connecting it to the sub output, try it on the L or R output of your amp.
This will eliminate the Denon.
If this fails, you need to test the loudspeaker driver unit whilst disconnected from the sub amp. Use a 1.5v cell (AA or bigger) connect using croc leads to the speaker's terminals. If the speaker is OK, you should hear a click. If you hear nothing, the speaker unit is faulty.

Why won't my a102 speakers from jamo witch came


The Jamo speakers need an AV Receiver to drive them properly. The TV doesn't have the correct outputs nor does it have the power required.

The Jamo kit consists of a powered subwoofer ans 5 small surround speakers. Each surround speaker needs to be powered by the speaker output from an an AV Receiver. The subwoofer should also be connected to the receiver, but the connection is a phono/RCA lead from the receiver's "Sub Out" socket.

Your TV connects to the AV receiver via the Optical out.

Please tell me all the connections on movie star 60+


Each of the five satellite speakers connect directly to an AV Receiver that you buy a separate device.

Here's the back of the sub. The sub either connects to the LFE Sub Out from the receiver to the white RCA/Phono Left Input. Or you can use speaker connection cables, AV Receiver front L & R to Speaker Level Inputs, and then Speaker Level Outputs to the front satellite speakers.

I have a Bose powered sub woofer, which I would like to connect to a pioneer receiver, the subwoofer (model 2683) connection has a four pronged connection (yellow white red blank) and the receiver has a...


Hi,sorry but you can not connect it directly like other sub-woofers..
Bose 2683 Powered Subwoofer is part of Bose Lifestyle 5 system, Please note that you will need the 5-pin DIN cable that connects the subwoofer to the base or "Music Center". and the 4 pronged connections for its own stereo speaker output not input from another stereo..
Sorry....but if you can arrange some handy man nearby ,he may get into the DIN cable to locate the subwoofer signal 2x input leads than you can use that leads for connecting into single sub woofer out let of your system...otherwise try to sell BOSE which can easily buy brand new up to date powered sub..

Hi we tried this system is new with denon stereo reviver. And with ioneer AV SYSTEM. Both with ower to sare but the cubes beat the sub by far, Cant get the sub to sound harder or sound like in store....


Some careful typing and model numbers might illuminate the question a bit.

Have you adjusted the speaker levels according to the manual?

Also, bass is heavily dependent on nearby surfaces. Experiment with placement of the sub. Find a spot near a corner.

How to hookup


hi,
if u want to hook up the sub with ur av receiver the connect the sub woofer output of ur AVR to any one (left or right) input of ur sub woofer. then connect its power . set the frequency range between 90 and 120Hz. set the volume of sub woofer to 40% of its total. also check the av receives speaker setting. goto speaker setup and make ON the sub woofer out.

if want to connect the sub to a stereo amp without sub out. then connect the amps speaker line to the speaker input of sub woofer and connect the speaker out of sub to left and right speaker ( make sure to connect the red to red and black to black). set the volume and frequency as above
ok

Denon / MK Sub Hookup


you can do this one of two ways, you can use just the left "mono" on your sub or use a y connector. If the sub doesn't show the left as mono then YES you need a y cable

Hooking up the sub


To connect the passive sub you have to connect the provided wires to the receiver then to the sub's inputs and from the sub's outputss to the cube speakers. It seems complicated but you'll see that is very easy if you lokk at the sub's connection panel.
Hope that i helped...
