Question about JVC RX-6000V Receiver

1 Answer

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.

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

Sub woofer does not come on. we checked for power to the cord. what to do now?


If it's an active subwoofer, it will need power from the wall along with a signal from your amplifier. usually this is done over a cable that looks a bit like coax, with the same plug on each end. Make sure your amp is configured to send a signal to the sub and ensure that whatever you're trying to play (i.e. a movie / console game) outputs signals for subwoofer.

If all of these things do not solve your problem... try turning the subwoofer on? (i jest).

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.

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.

Subwoofer shutdown


I'm having the same issue as pdoug: Sub rumbles in test mode, doesn't produce sound otherwise. Which makes me suspect it's the receiver itself -- the filter (or whatever) it is that should be separating the bass signal and sending it to the sub is not working. At least that's my guess.

Either way... this sucks.

Subwoofer not working


you have to reset the receiver, i had the same problem, works now, it's great, should be in the instruction booklet. I think it was, hold the power button while you disconnect it from the wall, not too clear but check the booklet in resetting system
