Subwoofer needs to be enabled through menu on Yamaha. LINE OUT might be turned off or Subwoofer volume set to low or off... (-db level) kinda thing...speaker wires are usually always live etc...

You may have to go into the speaker setup menu and choose SUBWOOFER YES/NO select Yes, this does enable the low level line output on receivers, so now the sub receives signal from the output, if you are getting low end sub sound using the speaker wire in/out from receiver to speakers it probably is not a Subwoofer failure issue, so I would investigate the setup option.

I have a rca no rtd250 impedance 12 ohms subwoofer. how do i connect it to my yamaha htr 5940.do i need a special cabel where do i get it.


The Yamaha can only drive powered subwoofers. Make sure that the RTD250 has it's own amplifier built in, you won't be able to easily run it off the yamaha if it doesn't.( the powered subwoofer will have a mains cord to power if it's correct) If it doesn't have a amp built in, easiest weay is to buy a cheap powered sub.
Is the RTD 250 the sub fromthe RCA home theatre pack?

Hi. Have a Yamaha HTR-5940 and want to put my turntable back into action, but can't seem to get the inputs right. Any solutions? Thanks John


You need a phono preamp and hook it to the aux input. Standard recievers don't have a phono i/p anymore - the phono i/p of older recievers used to have the phono i/p which included a preamp which amplifies the low signal level from the phono cartridge to a standard level. check here : http://www.phonopreamps.com/index.html

HTR-5740 Subwoofer Hooking Up Issue


You can use a hi-level to low-level adapter. Just remember, the Yamaha does not send power (wattage) to the sub, just signal. You need to use a subwoofer that has an amplifier either externally or built in.

I have a yamaha htr-5240 receiver. Also have a 6 speaker polk-audio surround set.Center,2 rear,2 front,& the subwoofer. The sub is a psw-250 with no sub out or LFE.I can't figure out what i've done...


First, look at the sub, their should be a switch for "auto" "off" "on" switch it to "on" Then use the Left input on the sub not the right. Left is for mono. Now, if you still dont have any sub, disconnect the RCA at the receiver and touch the end of the RCA, if the sub is on, you will hear a loud humm. Now, go back into the receivers Menu and go into manual setup, find "Audio" and select "Auto". That should do it. If not, put the receiver on "Tuner" and set the sound to 7 channel stereo (I'm not sure if the HTR series has this) or "Adventure" I'm a Yamaha RXV series Dealer so the names may differ. (check in manual for audio surround settings) Anyway, this should let you know if you've got all your spkrs working. Then make sure your TV's external audio is set to "Fixed" (it may be called audio out) depends on TV type. Scroll thru TV's audio menu. If you still have problems post a comment and I will help some more. Hope this helps

No Soound on Subwoofer from Yamaha RX-V363


I have the same setup. Are you going out of the subwoofer output of the reciever? (it's purple.) then into the LFE jack of the subwoofer (also purple.) That's the only connection you need besides power. If you have those right, try using your cable for something else to make sure the cable is good. Is the indicator of the subwoofer green? Mine comes on with the reciever. Good luck!

Left from speaker not working- Yamaha HTR-5940-6.1 channel


Redbird,

What do you have in the "multi channel input" jacks on the rear of the receiver? Those inputs Right, Left, Center, Surround R+L, and Sub are used when selecting 6 channel mode. They bypass the receivers surround processor board.
