JVC - Problem connecting a Powered Subwoofer to a Receiver

I have a JVC RX-5042S Receiver and I am trying to connect a JVC SX-W65000S Powered Subwoofer, the Subwoofer has a white and red RCA low level input while the reciever has a single black RCA output. I have tired connecting a single RCA cable between the two as well as using a Y-adapter with no luck. The Subwoofer is on, but the Receiver does not recognize it being connected and it is not producing any sound. Can anyone help??

Have you set speaker setup configuration to SUBWOOFER YES? Also check SUBWOOFER OUT ON/OFF button on the front panel.

SOURCE: Connecting Powered Subwoofer to a Receiver

you will need a line-level converter to use this subwoofer- it is a rectangular-shaped box with wires coming out on one end and red-and-white RCA plugs one the other. The end with the wires coming out will hook to the receiver, and the other end will need to plug into the sub.

Have jvc rx-2020v receiver with mono rca out for sub and trying to hook it up with polk audio rm 1000 w sub woofer with +/- terminals for both left ane right channels plus blue terminal(?). How to?


Your Polk Audio subwoofer is a passive sub and your JVC mono output is for connection to a powered sub. If the JVC does not have an amplified output for a passive sub, you'll either need to get an amplified sub, a different receiver, or buy a dedicated mono subwoofer amplifier.

Subwoofer problem


If you get your system up and running and hear an audible buzz or hum, the first culprit to look at is either the powered subwoofer or your reciever feed at the entry point to your system.

Speakers connection


There shouldnt be a problem with that at all. The subwoofer needs to be self powered. The Yamaha has a "Subwoofer Output" on the back. Just connect it there.

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!

No sound out of subwoofer


Connection from receiver subwoofer output jack RCA plug male go into your powered subwoofer low level input with other end of cable, then you need to select Subwoofer YES/NO on the JVC receiver speaker setup menu option, select YES if this is a powered subwoofer you are using, should power up the subwoofer, may have to adjust a test tone balance for multi speaker output also, try trimming up on the subwoofer channel to initiate the signal on if the sub has an auto-on feature.

Speaker wire for subwoofer


Usually, a subwoofer will have its own built-in power amplifier. Thus, it will be designed to plug into a standard RCA jack (the type used for DVD players, etc). rather than having wires to connect to a speaker terminal block. Look for a jack on the back of the receiver called "Subwoofer", or simply "SW". If your subwoofer has 2 single wires, it WON'T work with your reveiver's subwoofer output, as this output only carries a line-level signal and is not amplified. You would need a separate power amplifier for this type of SW. If your SW speaker has a DVD-type plug, it should work fine with the receiver's SW output jack.
