Question about Sony STR-DE597 Receiver

1 Answer

Sub Woofer will not work with my other two speakers.

A cheep sub woofer once worked with my two JBL speakers, but only in DVD mode playing CD's. The sub stopped working so I purchased a Polk sub and it too will not work. The Sony only lights up the SB ( Subwoofer) box in Movie mode for 6 Channel, but I only have a pair of speakers. The sound is faint in this mode compared to 2 CH or stereo mode.
Any suggestions? Thanks

My powered subwoofer no longer works through the receiver


if you have your front and centers set to 'small' you want your Bass out to be subwoofer only, and the rca jack labeled 'sub out' is the only place to connect your sub to if you want to control the frequencies with your reciever. I dont know the brand of your sub, or the inputs on the back of it to advise you where to connect, but it sounds like it worked for you at one time, but suddenly it does not

I have a JBL TLX CSS-SUB1 sub at the back are where you connect the speaker wires to the receiver but i don't know witch wire goes in what? i have no clue


The connection on the receiver would be the sub woofer out. Not a sub woofer out LFE, a sub woofer out with speaker wire connection. From there you plug it in to the top section of the available terminals on the sub you are referring to (speaker level input). One in positive and the other in negative matching what you did on the receiver with correct ends. The speaker connections underneath the top connections is for additional speakers like surrounds to be able to be connected directly to the sub woofer speaker level out for sound. This of course would be for an older receiver connection. I do not think it is possible to convert this connection to an LFE and have it work properly. If the receiver does not have sub woofer speaker connection and only a RCA out then you can try to connect both rear speaker connections from the receiver to the speaker level inputs on the sub and then connect your rear speakers to the speaker level output on the sub to power them. This is an active sub woofer but for some reason they made it connect as if it was passive. I am not sure if this sub is designed for really low frequencies required for movie or if it is better for music.

It will not power on


henrylshelt,
Your sub should turn on into standby mode when plugged into AC power without being attached to the receiver. If it does not follow the list below. If it does, the sub needs a signal from your receiver via either by line-level (RCA) or the speaker wires to turn on out of standby. Ensure that the cable or wires going to your sub is in fact sending a signal while the receiver is on. To Test, (speaker wires) hook up a different known working speaker; (line-level) Some receivers have a menu option to turn the LFE output on and off, ensure that it is on and producing a signal.

Diagnose the problem:
1) Remove all wiring to/from the unit except for the AC plug (use a different known working AC outlet), will it turn on? If so the other outlet is not working.
2) Remove the woofer, does the amp have a fuse that need to be changed? Change the fuse. If it blows again after replacing and turning back on, the speaker is blown; go to #4.
3) Unplug the woofer from the amp, does it turn on? If so, go to #4.
4) The sub need to be serviced. http://www.jbl.com/EN-US/Support/Pages/SupportOverView.aspx

-Hope this helps, Chris.

No Sound


This might very well be a fuse - check by setting the sub woofer to "On" to see if it powers up. If it does, there may be a problem with the sub woofer audio cable(s) or connection(s).

Don't forget to check for a tripped circuit breaker or blown fuse on the stereo's speaker output. If your sub is connected to a low level output - this shouldn't be a possible cause - as circuit breakers & fuses are usually on amplified (high level) or speaker outputs.

Another possibility is that the settings of the stereo has been changed from a *.1 system to plain stereo 2.0 or some other setting that disables the LFE (low frequency effects) or sub woofer audio output.
