My JVC RX6000VBK does not get the signal from or to my subwoofer.
My JVC RX6000VBK does not get the signal from or send a signal to my subwoofer. The subs light is on but nothing. All other speakers are up and running fine. The light on the JVC showing if a signal is getting through is not coming on. All othe lights including the LFE are lit. Is there a separate fuse in the JVC for the subwoofer? Thanks.

Re: My JVC RX6000VBK does not get the signal from or to...
I had the same problem a few times, they are pretty picky receivers.
first take a look in your settings and make sure none of your speakers are set on large, if they are they automatically shut off the woofer,
2, try the adjust option and crank the bass and throw on the bass boost
3. manually turn the woofer on through the receiver itself
4. try and turn up the woofer itself if is powered
5. try hooking the woofer up to the secondary speaker jacks by bridging it, (positive on left and negative on right for even power)
if none of these options work then the woofer itself may be defective even though it lights up

That subwoofer is included in the MHC-GX450 system. I have the amp/CD/radio unit. but not the subwoofer. The control cable connects the LED on the Sub to the main unit. When the main unit detects this connection to the LED it switches on its internal subwoofer amp to drive the subwoofer.
Does the JVC receiver use a "control" circuit through its external subwoofer unit to signal that it is connected to the subwoofer? If not, you do not need to use the control jack on the SS-WG450 to connect to the JVC receiver. Connecting the Sony subwoofer to a subwoofer output on the JVC unit may be enough. Do check the impedance required by your JVC receiver. Sony lists the SS-WG450 as having a Nominal impedance of 6 Ohms. Is this high enough for the JVC unit?
No, the powered subwoofer gets its signal AND power through the DIN connector so you'd have to second guess JVC engineers on which pins are power or signal; and what voltage level it supplies and then you'd have to come up with a source for the power. Managing the volume and relative levels would be a trick, too. Devastation lies down that path.
Get the prescribed JVC electronics or go with a whole new sound solution.
I would suggest to buy the entire cone speaker because the inner windings is harder to find or not available.
The cone speaker part number is: CR160058-01. Try contacting this website to find the cone speaker or you could find a cheaper speaker cone with the same dimensions and wattage.
I can also send you the service manual for this 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.
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.
I could either be the sub or the main unit. The main unit actually sends a signal to the sub to turn it on so if that circuit is bad in the main unit the sub is never going to come on. I've also seen bad cables (You'd be amazed at how stubborn people can be when din connectors don't cooperate).
