    What is the model of the subwoofer??



    I think your problem is the subwoofer is not sensing the voltage to turn on the amplifier. (if it is voltage sensing)

    is there a subwoofer setting somewhere in the stereo? check the manual, or find one online if possible and see. sometimes the stereo requires the subwoofer setting to be on before it well send anything out of the preamps.

    How is it SET UP?? Is the subwoofer powered? is it running off speaker outputs? pre-amp outputs?

    we'll need more information to diagnose.

Power sub woofer is not working on my pioneer vsx-81txv everything is working all the speakers except the power sub connection at the back all i can hear is the hissing sound when i try to connect the sub...


Hissing? How loud? A sub isn't even capable of making high frequency sounds at normal volumes.

The Pioneer manual would tell you how to enable and test the subwoofer output.
Page 17 and the MACCV procedures on Page 33 (auto) or 43 (manual)

I'm not sure how to hook up a powered sub woofer to my rx4109 reciever


It doesn't have a specific low-frequency or subwoofer output.

Depending on your unnamed subwoofer we may be able to work something out. Any sub should be able to work with a full-range Line Level feed.

If you use a Line Level input you won't have volume control of the sub through the receiver.

That would be available at either Tape Out or Aux Out. Just run an RCA pair (or combined to one male out if that's what the sub amp requires).

Whichever one you use, you won't be able to activate that function for listening as it would remove the input to the sub amp.

If your sub accepts speaker level High Level inputs you could drive it with speaker outputs and yoi WOULD have some volume control, assuming the sub had a way to match its initial volume to your other speakers.

Of course, the manual for your sub might explain some of this, too.

The sub-woofer output on the receiver is not working. I have tested the sub-woofer (speaker) and it works. And I have tested the cables and they work. The problem lies within the receiver. How can I fix...


I don't have the manual, but if YOU do, crack it open and find the part where you tell the receiver it HAS a subwoofer and any other settings that direct bass toward it.

Connecting a Sony Subwoofer SA-W2500 to a STR DE 598


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

Hi - You can download the manual by clicking the link underlined in blue below:

RD-6108

Your sub woofer needs to have it's own power amp i.e. a "powered" sub woofer:

Assuming your sub woofer is powered & connect as shown then check the following setting:
